Never See the Light_XSmall

To celebrate the release of Butterflies are Free, I am posting the first chapter of a free serial here on my blog. 🙂

Never See the Light introduces you fully to Shimazu Nowaki and Xavier Blair. If you remember in World’s End, you met Xavier at the very end, when Emrys spoke to him on the bell. Here, you meet him and get to know both him and the beautiful Nowaki.


Having grown up in Japan as the youngest son of Shimazu Masanori, Nowaki wanted to be his own man and be that son, but knew of no other way to do it than to walk the wire without the net. Emulating Bruce Lee, Nowaki travels to the U.S. in hope of making a big enough noise that his parents could hear it across the Pacific. Xavier Blair, friend to Nowaki’s father enters his life on the very day that he takes his first steps in Los Angeles, California. Son of one of the wealthiest men in England, Xavier works hard to look good and to be everything that the papers say about him: beautiful, playboy, superficial, always with a different woman. When their worlds collide, neither can deny the chemistry that veritably explodes between them, but will they find strength in one another and the love they discover, or will the film industry and their families drag them under to where they never again see the light of their sun?
