About this ebook

"A unique and heartwarming story." — Love Bytes Reviews

"Gay fiction at its finest." — BBE

When nineteen-year-old Denis Murphy sneaks onto an exclusive overnight train from Dublin to Belfast, he wasn’t counting on being caught. Or falling in love. But he has some trust issues to overcome first.

Oliver Lloyd is famous just for being rich, but he doesn’t let it affect him the way it does his sister. When he is asked to cut the ribbon at the launch of Ireland’s first extravagant overnight train service, he jumps at the chance to get away from his money-grabbing friends and his narcissistic ex-boyfriend and clear his head.

But when Denis and Oliver are thrust together onboard a luxury steam train, the screeching brakes won’t be the only thing making sparks fly.

If only they could get past their differences.

Rainbow Rowell meets Alexis Hall in this fun gay romance with all the heart of a David Levithan novel.

About the author

Simon Doyle (he/him) was born and raised in Ireland and studied in England. He discovered that he could travel the world on a shoestring by reading books at a very young age. When he won a local poetry competition at the age of nine, it sparked a lifetime love of words. But he swears never to write poetry again.

His first novel release is Runaway Train, book 1 of the Runaway Bay series.

He lives with three cats, two dogs, and Lucas, his human soulmate. They met in kindergarten. Where all good stories begin.
