A – Z | The Night Porter

The Night Porter (Night Porter #1) by Sue Brown

I picked this up at the library, and I didn’t have a clue what it was about, but I needed an N for my A-Z Title Challenge and I usually click the like button on Sue Brown’s Facebook posts so I know her name LOL. I’ve read other stories by her too, so it felt like a safe bet.

I didn’t know this story didn’t have a HEA, my fault, I could’ve investigated instead of just starting to read. Now, I don’t need a HEA to like a story, but I was a bit stunned when the end came LOL.

There is a sequel, and I assume the HEA will come in that one.

Max is a night porter in a hotel where Robert comes to live the last days before his wedding. They instantly connect and the attraction is mutual. One late night leads to another, they end up far closer than they should, but then the wedding day comes.

I was left with a ‘but… No!’

Both Max and Robert are likeable characters and I was rooting for them, but, alas…

I couldn’t find this book in any of the online retailers but check your library if you want to read it or wait for a bit. It was originally published by Dreamspinner so my guess Ms Brown has pulled it. She might publish it again, maybe.

9653560The first time Max lays eyes on Robert Armitage, he knows exactly what he wants to happen. Tall, broad, and gorgeous, Robert pushes all his buttons. When Robert asks Max to show him around town, the attraction between them only intensifies. But Max is just a night porter and Robert a guest at his hotel before his wedding, and Max knows even as they sleep together that in the morning he’ll have to send the groom on his way.

Up North | Banger Challenge


Let me introduce Zeppelin Cave and Fred Munson. If you’re lucky you get to tag along on a road trip in an Opel Ascona from 1988 without air condition during a heatwave in July – I know it’s a dream come true LOL.

When the pandemic hit back in March, I had a hard time focusing. I’m sure most of you can relate, but after weeks of not writing nor reading, I felt I needed to do something get my mind in gear again. So I asked for requests in my Facebook group. I figured if I just could write something short for someone other than myself, I could get going again.

It worked, sort of. I didn’t write one short story, I wrote When Skies Are Gray that’s 16k since the lovely Sheryl Boo wanted an age-gap story. But then the equally lovely Gabi Cervenka (who has a blog you should check out ) wanted a story about a shy guy.

Fred is that shy guy, and he’d been forced to take three weeks off from work. He doesn’t have anything on his schedule other than laying jigsaw puzzles, but that’s before his driveway got blocked by Zen Zeppelin Cave. Zen is everything Fred is not, and before long he’s convinced Fred to come with him on a road trip.

I loved writing this story, and it was supposed to be a shorty, but it’s 31k, so while not novel length, it’s went on for a bit longer than I’d planned…but it’s a long way to the south when you’re starting you trip Up North.
