Sometimes the universe puts you in the right place at the right time, but you can’t always see it at the time. When River Bennett is attacked by a group of men, he can’t see anything good coming out of it. That is until the policeman who rescued him appears at the hospital to interview him.

Madden Sanders.

River had spent his youth lusting over his one-time best friends brother, but when life split them apart, he didn’t think he would see either of them again. Yet here Madden is, standing in front of River in a police uniform and looking better than he did back in high school.

Madden can’t believe that it’s little River Bennett that he’s just saved from being seriously hurt. He remembers his little brother’s best friend, and he also remembers the things he used to imagine about him. When those same feelings come back, it confuses Madden, especially since he has a boyfriend. That doesn’t stop the pull between the men, and when friendship threatens to become more, Madden will need to decide what to do.

The only problem is that when he decides, Madden then needs to prove to River he doesn’t see him as less. He doesn’t see him as weak. What he actually sees is the man of his dreams, but will River ever believe him? Will River let Madden see behind the mask where he hides?

And when the universe puts them in the right place again, will they be able to work out who is rescuing who?

Made to Measure takes the idea of uniforms being used to boost the profile of the London Metropolitan Police. A special ops squad have been chosen to become insta-fame celebs in order to make the Met seem more ‘with it’ and to dispel negative opinion.

The main character who tells the story from his perspective, is Sergeant Rob Ross. He’s a big man but a natural submissive. One of his team; the rookie, Liam Ryan, is built like an oak tree and also happens to be a Dom. Another man features – his name is Sanjay and he isn’t with the police but seems to fit right in the middle of the other two!

This is the story of how they met and what occurs afterwards… it’s short, sharp, sweet and sexy!

If you have read Viva’s books, Izzy’s Boy and Good Lord, this novella will hold special treats for you…

Francesco Di Fiore is a handsome bellboy at a luxury Venetian Hotel. On an average day you can find him in a dashing burgundy uniform with sleek golden streaks. He is popular with guests of both sexes, who spoil him with lavish gifts. He is at ease with his colleagues, many of whom he has also got to know well.  He loves his job and rarely leaves his hotel. His hotel is his cocoon that protects him and provides for him. No wonder he feels no urge to venture out.

One night his life takes an unexpected turn and all because he decides to take time off and taste the world outside. He goes on a date, has a good time and finds himself too drunk to notice that his date has wandered off. When he sobers up, he is walking alone through the dark streets of Venice. He stops to watch passing gondolas, but sees something very different. He watches a man tightening a noose about his neck by a bridge down the canal. Francesco dashes through the labyrinth of narrow streets to get to the man just in time to save him. They fall down in each other’s arms on the cold stones by the canal. When Francesco opens his eyes, he realises that the turmoil in his life is not going to end here.

The stranger in Francesco’s arms is every bit as attractive as he is vulnerable. Francesco senses trouble. His protected life in a five star paradise is about to come to an end. He brings the stranger to his tiny loft room at the top floor of the hotel. The stranger’s name is Ralf and he is a full time artist and a makeshift poet. Francesco hears a story of a desperate heartbreak and feels unable to show his guest the door. They fall asleep together in his single bed. This is how their turbulent relationship begins.   

Ralf settles in Francesco’s room and Francesco provides both the roof over his head and counselling. Soon neither of them can say whether Francesco’s sensitive care is the kindness of a stranger or the affection of a kindred spirit. They begin a passionate affair against the backdrop of the great city. They lose themselves in the web of narrow streets and snaking canals, caught in the whirl of their frenzied emotions. They divide their time between the splendour of Venetian palaces and a farmer’s hut on a rural island in the Venetian lagoon. Will Francesco’s lifestyle and temptations of high life destroy their volatile arrangement, or will Francesco Di Fiore once again rescue his troubled poet and whisk him away to a rustic paradise, where they can belong only to each other? Isola Di Fiore is everybody’s dream only a few can follow. Have a taste of what it’s like on the other end. This is a novella of 35,000 words in the M/M genre for an adult reader.

Love can be so complicated but it can also be the easiest thing in the world without obstacles, suffering and second-guessing. What does it take to recognise that you have something special? When love can have so many guises, how not to let this one true thing pass you by?

Lee has been single for over a decade. His DJ career suffered a setback in the cosiness of Oxford. It was too early for a midlife crisis, yet his life was already stuck in a rut of mundane things. Not even his music could take away the blues plaguing his thoughts anymore…

Salvo has just moved to Oxford from Italy and started a nursing job at the John Radcliffe Hospital. He is lucky to find a friend in his vivacious colleague Kimberly, but he also hopes to attract attention of cute English lads. With his dashing looks and enviable physique he turns a few heads before he catches Lee’s eye.

The attraction is instant. The air crackles with sexual tension, and what Lee finds particularly hard to resist is Salvo’s warm and caring nature. He writes a song for Salvo, and that seals the deal.

As springtime blossoms into summer and their relationship evolves, Lee and Salvo learn a lesson or two about not taking gifts of life for granted.
