Over 500 five-star Goodreads ratings! A searing contemporary gay romance between a Scottish lord and a tattooed footballer from the slums. Set amid the fiery Scottish independence campaign, Playing to Win tells the story of two men who must lose everything to win each other's hearts. Like all the Glasgow Lads novels, this may be read as a stand-alone, as it features a happy ending with no cliffhanger.
Being out in this world was dangerous enough. Being real was downright suicidal.
Colin MacDuff has nothing. Growing up in a Glasgow slum, he learned never to trust, never to cry—and never EVER to be at the mercy of anyone, especially rich men. So how did he end up half-naked at a rave with Scotland’s hottest young aristocrat?
Lord Andrew Sunderland has everything. From ancestral castle to posh prep school, he’s spent his life wrapping others around his wee finger. With a social circle full of celebrities and politicians, nothing can stop Andrew’s rise to the top. Nothing, that is, save his desire for a dirt-poor, wolf-eyed footballer whose scars and tattoos tell unbearable tales.
Colin and Andrew come from different worlds, believe in different worlds, want different worlds. Yet every time they touch, all worlds fall away.
Set amid the fiery Scottish-independence struggle, this searing gay romance tells the story of two men who must lose everything to win each other’s hearts.
