Book two in the New Horizons Series
Can a former gay pornstar fight prejudice and blackmail to become the theatre actor he wants to be?
Scott Black is a former gay pornstar who has recently moved back to Scotland so that his boyfriend Anton Collins can use the Black family’s old manuscripts for his research. Hoping to leave his movie career in the past, Scott dreams of performing on stage, and in a lucky break lands a role at the Princes Theatre in Edinburgh. But not everyone is happy with his new job.
When a disgruntled actor threatens to make Scott’s past public knowledge, he’s faced with the prospect of quitting the best opportunity of his life, until Anton opens his eyes to the real issue–learning to live with his choices while reaching for new horizons.
Will Scott allow his past to rule his future, or will he stand behind his decisions so everyone can discover what an excellent actor he is?

Excerpt From: Discovering the Actor
“Are you ready?” Scott Black glanced at his new boyfriend. They’d been together for a month, most of that time spent organising their move from California to Scotland. Now they were about to meet his parents and suddenly Scott wasn’t so sure this was a good idea.
“No.” Anton’s sky-blue eyes were bright in his too pale face.
The long flights with a layover in Newark had taken it out of him despite the fact they’d travelled first class. Anton’s long, strawberry blond locks were tousled and he looked good enough to eat, even as exhausted as he was. Too bad Scott had to focus on driving the rental car they’d picked up at Edinburgh airport. Returning to driving on the left side of the road had been surprisingly easy, but he was still nervous. The first roundabout had almost thrown him for a loop.
“Would you rather stay at a hotel, get some sleep and meet them tomorrow?” Scott wouldn’t mind. He hadn’t seen his family since he’d left for Los Angeles ten years ago. A career in gay porn later, he wasn’t too sure of his welcome, even though his eldest brother, Logan, had reassured him when they’d spoken on the phone.
“That would only delay it, not solve the problem of having to meet new people. You know I’m no good at that.” Anton sighed and pushed his hair out of his face. “And these aren’t just any new people. Hell, they’re your parents and family. What if they hate me?”
“They won’t hate you.” That was too ridiculous for words. “You’re too nice a person to hate. Not to mention intelligent, well educated and about to bring order to their long neglected library of old manuscripts. If they’ll hate anyone, it’ll be me.”
“You? But you’re their son!” Anton’s eyebrows rose.
“A son who used to be a gay porn star.” Scott wasn’t ashamed of what he’d done, but he’d always thought his stuffy aristocratic family would object. “Even if Logan assures me that they’re okay with it, I can’t quite imagine they’ll love me for it.”
“Okay, so maybe they’ll hate both of us.” Anton’s lips twitched when Scott did a double take. “Watch the road!”
