Today's teaser comes from Pride (Single Dads #6)
*Unedited snippet* – coming 28 March – https://rjscott.co.uk/read-pride
It’s six am and it’s way too early for any kind of documentary maker like me to be hunched up in their car, coming across as a hundred kinds of suspicious. I’m surprised I haven’t been approached by cops for my ID, although I had my media credentials to hand at all times, but then I hadn’t seen much in the way of police presence. I get the feeling that it’s not because this was a place the cops avoided, just that it was so quiet. I wasn’t parked outside homes, just closed up businesses, down a side road where I’d barely seen anyone, let alone cops. There were no gangs close to here, no kids hanging out on street corners, no drug deals, it was just me in my Toyota in a quiet LA street that gave me nothing in the way of backstory, while counting down the time to driving on in for my meeting with someone called Tudor Barrera.
A blazing connection between single dads from opposite sides of the tracks is fraught with secrets and lies, and a happily ever after is impossible, unless they take a chance on love.
Saved a long time ago by a man who saw a diamond in the rough, Logan is a single dad and the owner of Redcars Automotive, a haven for those in need. With custody of his daughter under scrutiny, his life is upended when a journalist looking for a story slips into his life without him realizing. Logan doesn’t want Gray more than once, but when sharing the secrets of his past won’t get the journalist to leave, what else can he do?
After blaming himself for missing signs that his son was ill, Gray feels Ben is safer with his ex-wife and her new pediatrician husband. With a heart heavy with guilt, and his documentary company failing to find a story, he’s searching for some spark in his life to fix everything. When a series of arson attempts draws him to Los Angeles, he meets the secretive, scarred, and tattooed Logan, who makes him an offer that Gray knows he should refuse.
This opposites-attract love story features two single dads reaching a crossroads in life, angst, secrets, arson, intimidation, and a found family so tightly connected that nothing can break it apart.More info →
