The Cuckoo’s Call
By Lily Morton
Can a summer romance last forever?
Wren Roberts thought he’d found his fairy tale when he met Mateo Rossi on holiday in Majorca. The wealthy and successful older man swept him off his feet, and before he knew it, he’d thrown caution to the wind and was living in Mateo’s waterside apartment in Venice. It’s a far cry from his harsh upbringing and crummy flat in London.
But as the summer turns to autumn, cracks begin to show. Mateo’s family aren’t welcoming, and there doesn’t seem to be a place for Wren in Mateo’s world. He could have coped with all of that, but Mateo himself seems like a different person away from the sunshine island.
Should Wren have been more cautious in riding off into the sunset when he wasn’t sure what lay over the horizon?
From bestselling author Lily Morton comes a romance about two men who find that sometimes happily ever after doesn’t end there.

We drive for a while as I choose songs, and he grumbles about them. Eventually, we come onto a winding road leading down to a cove. The road is so narrow that I could reach out and touch the bushes on either side. A fresh, herby scent fills the Jeep, and Mateo slows, cautiously steering through the steep curves. I look idly out of the window, and the foliage parts, revealing an eye-wateringly steep drop.
“Jesus,” I say.
He smiles. “You are fine, Wren. I’ve driven this road many times. It’s easy enough as long as you are not a reckless driver.”
“I’m not worried.” He shoots me an incredulous look, and I shrug. “I’m not. You’re a good driver. I trust you.”
“You’re very quick to trust a stranger,” he murmurs, his eyes back on the road, but his brow wrinkled in concern. “Maybe too much so.”
His concern warms my chest. It’s a rare occurrence for me and I push the feeling away. “I’m not. I just trust you for some reason.” He shoots me a startled look and then turns his attention back to the road. “Unless you really are a murderer who’s going to slit my throat and throw me down the gap.” I pause. “Oh god, please say you’re not and that I haven’t just given you the idea of how to murder me.”
He laughs. “Give me some credit. If I were a serial killer, I’d be an organised one, and I’m positive that I’d want to come up with my own killing ideas rather than just copying yours.”
I relax back against the seat. “Thank goodness for fragile male pride.”
