This week I have more from Separation, my upcoming taboo romance featuring fraternal twins. Separation will be available from March 31, 2017, via Smashwords, Amazon, and Payhip.
Matthew Langford is told on his twenty-first birthday that he has a twin. After the initial shock, he quickly realizes this is why he always felt part of him was missing. His search takes him 200 miles to Devon, UK, where he meets fraternal twin, Tremaine Wheal.
The pair discover many things in common, and quickly become as close as if they’d never been separated. But when they share a moment in a nightclub, each realizes there is more between them than having shared a womb. Panic sets in and they part. Once again their separation brings loneliness and pain.
Eventually, unable to stay away from each other, they tentatively move forward together as lovers. But secrets don’t stay secret for long, and discovery and questions threaten their happiness.
This is a taboo story featuring twins.
Last week, Matthew and Tremaine talked about the fact that they’re both gay. Tremaine then had to leave to go to work, so Matt went to a hotel. This snippet is later, from Tremaine’s point of view. But what could have happened to him? :O

“I’m fine!” Struggling against the male nurse restraining me, I glared up at him. “Let me up. I just want to go home.”
“Mr. Wheal, you’ve lost a lot of blood. Please stay still. We need to keep an eye on you for at least a few hours.” Cautiously releasing me, he checked the cannula in my left arm that led to a saline drip suspended above the bed. I sat up, and immediately dizziness made my vision blur. I sank back against the pillows. “Is there someone we can call for you?” the nurse asked.
Matt’s face popped into my head, but the last thing I wanted was for him to get a call from the hospital in the middle of the night, telling him what happened to me. We’d only just met. I didn’t want to dump any of my shit on him. “No.” I shook my head to emphasize the response.
