Will Rowan’s festival fling with sexy dancer Seth lead to something more permanent?

Rowan is stuck at a folk festival helping out a mate, and it really isn’t his scene. The yoga and singing workshops are bad enough, but morris dancing is the final straw. Bearded men with beer guts prancing around wearing bells—who wants to watch that?

All Rowan’s preconceptions are shattered when he meets Seth—a morris dancer, and the stuff Rowan’s fantasies are made of. Seth persuades Rowan to come to a dancing workshop, and Rowan’s willing to do whatever it takes to get to know Seth better. The attraction is mutual, and a lesson filled with innuendo and flirting leads to an incredible night together.

When Rowan arrives home, he’s gutted to find that Seth has given him the wrong phone number. Assuming Seth did it on purpose, Rowan resolves to forget about him. But fate—and friends—conspire to get them back together. Will they manage to stay in step this time around?

A much shorter version of this story was originally published in the Not Quite Shakespeare Anthology by Dreamspinner Press. This version has been revised and extended. Almost half of it is new content.

4 Stars

Rowan agrees to attend the Riverbank Festival, a folk festival, to help his best-friend Max man a booth selling trinkets. The first night is a wash out filled with rainy weather, but Rowan and Max huddle together under the beer tent drinking. As they are discussing the events of the festival, Rowan puts his foot in his mouth when he insults the art of Morris Dancing, not realizing the hunky guy who just walked into the beer tent and caught his attention, just happen to be a Morris dancer. Can Rowan redeem himself and have a shot at the hunky dancer, Seth?

It's funny, my bff has dragged me to our local Pagan festival, as well as something called drums in the swaps *shudders*, these are so not my thing, but having attended these events, I have a pretty good idea of what the Riverbank festival is and all I can say is, I sympathize with poor Rowan, although he steps over to the dark side eventually! Haha

This was a hot and sexy little read. It moves really fast and I absolutely adored Rowan. The story is well-written and truthfully, it doesn't have a whole lot of substance, except some smoking hot sex, which Jay is a master at writing, he always seems to have me squirming in my seat, and maybe panting a bit. Just don't tell anyone!

This very enjoyable read, packed with likable characters, some funky dance moves and well, hot sex! Recommendable!
