Title: Kiss & Ride
Author: Teodora Kostova
Genre: Gay Romance, Contemporary, Christmas/Holiday Romance
SynopsisWhat happens when you meet the right guy at the wrong time?
When Vincent Alesi’s estranged father dies, he gets on the first plane from New York city to Rome to be at the memorial service. Even if he has to max out his credit card. Even if he hates the man for leaving him. Even if it’s a day before Christmas.
Everything that can go wrong does go wrong, and Vin ends up trusting a complete stranger with all his secrets, even the ones he didn’t know he had.
Luca Romano’s job as a flight attendant takes him all over the world. But a jet-setting lifestyle is not what he wants. His dream of opening his own restaurant is being placed on hold over circumstances beyond his control.
Timing is everything…
When Vin bursts into Luca’s life, both men fall fast and hard. But their lives, their dreams, even the cities they live in couldn’t be more different.
Their few days together in Rome are romantic, emotionally intense, and leave them both wanting more.
Can a fleeting love affair change their lives forever?
“I want to show you something,” Vin said suddenly, jostling Luca as he made to sit up.
“Is it the pink jockstrap?” Luca waggled his eyebrows. Vin bit his lip but his cheeks still dimpled when he shook his head. “If that something is anywhere out of this room, I’m not going,” Luca pouted dramatically, crossing his arms.
“Come on. I really need you to see this, Luca.”
With a loud groan, Luca sat up and headed to the bathroom. “This better be fucking good,” he mumbled on the way, closing the door behind him.
Vin took him to a building a few blocks away from his apartment in Chelsea. He produced a key for the main door, and then another set of keys for the apartment on the top floor. He paused before pushing the door open.
“Nobody but me has ever been here before,” he said, biting his lower lip nervously. “But I wanted to show you, because... Well, you’ll see.”
They walked into a converted loft, a huge open space with floor to ceiling windows without any blinds or curtains. The furniture was scarce – a large sofa against one wall, a small table with a lamp next to it, and a bookcase housing a disarray of various books, magazines, and notebooks.

About the author
Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband and my son. I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job a few years ago when I decided that everything else I’ve tried bores me to death and I have to do what I’ve always wanted to do, but never had the guts to fully embrace. I’ve been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It’s the only time that I’m truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time – my son has a bigger attention span than me.
When I’m procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Nintendo Wii game by a very inventive kid.
Don’t be shy and get in touch – I love connecting with my readers.
