Feuding families, unearthed secrets, and a violent storm threatens the Cay. Will the idyllic island with her cast of characters make it through unscathed? It’s time for the circle to close on the story of Sapphire Cay, and on the men who have lived and found love on her beaches.
Join characters old and new as we celebrate Dylan and Lucas’s wedding and delve into the history of Sapphire Cay.
Connor and Shaun are directly related to Peter and Alfie, a couple whose clandestine lover affair was overshadowed by old prejudices and a world war. Shaun Jamieson is a writer, a romantic and needs to pen the story of the affair’s final secrets; Connor French’s family wants to stop Shaun.
When the two men step onto the sands of Sapphire Cay, they find more than just the secrets of an old love. They find hope and comfort in each other. But with the past hanging over them, can they ever have what Peter and Alfie could not? Or are they just as ill-fated as their ancestors?
Dylan gave Scott the look, the one that said, ‘please for fuck’s sake take over’. The vibes he’d felt in the crossing to the Cay weren’t good ones, and the idea of getting in the middle of a heated debate wasn’t on his to-do list. He had enough to worry about without adding two warring men and an old feud. He locked the office door and considered what had happened – exactly what Lucas had warned him would happen. He wanted to phone Lucas, but the baby coming early was enough family stress without Dylan dumping loads of shit on his husband. Lucas would be back in a few days, all being well, then Dylan would be able to clear his head. Right now there was only one other person he could talk to.
He placed the call before he could second guess himself and phoned the only person who would listen to him right at this moment.
Mitch’s tone was reassuringly very similar to the one Lucas used to such good effect, all calm and confident and Dylan relaxed marginally.
“I fucked up,” Dylan announced. Then he heard some movement rustling, a door closing, and Mitch’s voice sounding different like he was in a cupboard.
“I’m in a meeting,” Mitch said. “This had better be good.”
Weirdly enough, after the wedding, Dylan and Mitch had grown to be friends again, both loved up and acknowledging they were exactly wrong for each other.
“You know the Alfie/Peter thing.”
“The guys on the island from the War? I remember.”
“Look, do you have five minutes?”
Mitch sighed. Then he chuckled. “They won’t miss me for a bit. Jeez, if Isaac could see me sitting in a damn supply closet he’d never let me live it down. Go on, you have five.”
“Ok, well, you remember Connor French?”
“He’s the guy who was supposed to be visiting before the wedding but it never happened. Well he’s here.”
“I’m not following.”
“He’s the great-great something to the original Peter French and he’s here. But there’s another someone here, who got in touch the middle of last month.”
“Wait, before you go on… I need to ask you, how is Tash? Her baby girl?”
“She’s well. They both are.”
“We sent flowers and a pink teddy for Francesca. That was what they named her, right? But that’s beside the point, carry on with the story. It’s riveting.”
“Are you yanking my chain?”
“A bit. But go on anyway. I get I am a surrogate Lucas in having to listen to this latest drama.”
“Asshole. This guy, Shaun Jamieson, is here as well. And he’s the great-great something grandson of Alfie Jamieson. The AJ we knew was Alfie is actually Alfie Jamieson. Are you following this?”
