UK GLBTQ Meet Ebook Giveaway: Henrietta Clarke - The Truth about Riley

I asked to all the authors joining the UK GLBTQ Fiction meet in Manchester in July (http://ukglbtfictionmeet.co.uk/2013-event/2013-attendees/spotlight_authors-2/) a personal favor, a special Ebook Giveaway: twice a week I will post 1 book from each author, and among those who will leave a comment, I will draw a winner. Very easy and very fast ;-) I will send a PM to the winner, so remember to not leave anonymous comments!

And the ebook giveaway goes to imidealistic

Today author is Henrietta Clarke: Hey there! I'm Henrietta Clarke,a quirky Yorkshire lass who loves to spend her time buried in books, whether that be reading, writing, or helping other people to craft them. I'm a hopeless romantic writing mainly M/M, and there's nothing I love more than a happy ending. I'm a hoarder by nature and a compulsive collector of books, DVDS, shoes, elephants, posters, keyrings, photo frames--though most stay empty far too long--and phobias. (The one I'm willing to admit to is abibliophobia; or fear of running out of reading material.) When I'm not reading or writing, I can generally be found in the kitchen, hanging out with my parents and dogs or baking cupcakes.

Riley Aylworth's life has been completely devoid of intimate contact since a fire three years ago left him with horrific facial scarring, so when he finds an ad for a phone sex service, he decides to give it call. Except that the number is not a phone sex service-it's the revenge Cameron Kirkwood's ex-boyfriend took on the uptight advertising executive after Cam forget their anniversary and accidentally put him in the hospital. Needless to say, after thirty-nine disturbing calls seeking phone sex, Cameron is at the end of his tether and yells at his fortieth caller. What he doesn't expect is for Riley to hit redial and yell right back. The argument helps both Cameron and Riley vent about their issues, and when they've calmed down, they decide to exchange numbers and talk again. From this decision springs a friendship which, over time, grows into a gentle romance-all over the phone, because Riley is too scared to meet Cam in person. Showing a potential boyfriend his disfigured face is the fastest way to get rejected, right? Even a month of scorching hot phone sex can't change his mind, no matter how hard Cam tries to persuade him that with their phone chemistry, the sex would be so much better in person. Meanwhile, Cam is haunted by the scarred blond he seems to be seeing everywhere, and Riley can't get the handsome brunet who always seems happy to see him out of his mind. It's a shock to both men to realise that the guy they're falling for over the phone is also the man who brightens their day with just a smile; but it's one thing to let a stranger smile at you and quite another to let him close enough to see into your soul. If Riley can't break down the walls in his mind and believe that Cameron loves him in spite of his scars, their relationship may be doomed before they've even had a chance to kiss.
