Wild Wales

A lesbian romance by Patricia Evans Cox

Aisling Moss is balanced on the crystal edge of success as one of the most sought-after wedding planners in London…until one ill-advised move brings her career crashing down around her feet like a toppled tower of champagne flutes. The next day, a letter from a family solicitor arrives at her flat, and she has to choose between picking up the pieces of her career in London or taking the next flight to Wales to honor the wishes of someone she loves.

Finn Morgan was forced to end her fighting career after an injury sidelined her dreams of being a star in the cutthroat world of professional women’s boxing. Her job as a short-order cook in a Brooklyn diner certainly doesn’t compare, but it also doesn’t require her to think about what she wants to do with her life. Sleeping with her boss’s wife and spending quality time with a punching bag is all she needs, until the day she comes home to find a letter from across the pond, surrounded by a pool of warm sunlight, on her entry table.

Once in Wales, long-kept secrets and unexpected demands surface for both Finn and Aisling, and they are forced to make hard decisions about their futures: Do they return to rebuild the lives they had, or take a chance on love in wild, windswept Wales?


Caroline looked up at her. “Do you think it’s just jitters?”

Aisling paused, wishing Caroline had asked her any question but that one. She took a breath and smiled, choosing her words carefully.

“Every bride has nerves the night before the big day. All you need to do is put this nonsense to the back of your mind and get a good night’s rest.” Aisling realized suddenly that she was still holding Caroline’s hand and subtly let go as she continued. “This will all seem like a dream tomorrow morning when you wake up and realize it’s your wedding day, the happiest day of your life.”

Caroline bit her lip, searching Aisling’s eyes. “Do you really mean that?”

Do I mean it? What if she really is gay and the poor girl is reaching out for advice?

Aisling squared her shoulders and reminded herself that this wasn’t her decision to make. Only Caroline could decide what was right for her, just like only Aisling could create the life she wanted for herself. And she knew what she wanted: the corner office in the corporate headquarters with the floor-to-ceiling windows and the ridiculously inflated salary.

“Yes,” Aisling said. “I do think it’s just nerves.”

Caroline ran her hands through her hair looked up at the sky. It was a long moment before she looked back at Aisling and held her eyes.

“If that’s true.” Caroline’s words were slow and deliberate. “Then kiss me.”

An Interview with Patricia Evans Cox

First of all, thank you for having me!

-What inspired you to become a writer? –

Honestly, I wasn’t seeing the brave, risk-taking and poignant writing that I knew this community needs and appreciates, so I wanted to do my best to contribute. Our community is so diverse; shimmering with talent and shared experiences and books have always been a way we’ve connected. I wanted to be sure that I was writing from a position of courage, so that what I put out in the world would be authentic, intense, and unforgettable.

-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?

Well, with Wild Wales, that’s easy; I’d sit in Aisling and Finn’s 17th century pub and have a few pints with the locals. And maybe flirt with Finn a little…just being honest!

I wrote Wild Wales because I have always been in love with raw, windswept Wales and the incredible heroines that make up it’s history. I knew I wanted to set a book there because it’s just…magical, which hopefully I conveyed well with the characters and storyline.

-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

I think Aisling would admit that she’s tired of always being in charge in her relationships. She melts under Finn’s chivalrous strength, and I think that’s because she secretly loves how Finn steps up and handles situations…and her.

Also, thier sex is smoking hot; intense, boundary-pushing and raw, but still luminous with love. That’s hard to find and it’s a whole new world to her.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

Every single one of them. There are quite a few unforgettable characters, including some supernatural appearances, in this book, and I’m still in love with them. I’ve missed them since I started my newest book!

-You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?

Drop to my knees and say yes Ma’am.;)

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

Sci-Fi. Not sure I’m that smart;)

I think Erotica would be hard for me as well though. Not because of the sex, I love writing sex scenes that deepen the relationships between the characters, but I need to know the characters well enough to really get into what they’re doing in bed, and that takes a lot of character interaction. Not that fast and hot erotica scenes involving a whip and a deserted barn aren’t hot, but I think real connection is hotter… on the page or in real life.
