Fact or Crap: If It Drives

From those who submit at least one correct answer, I will draw a name to win a copy of any eBook title off either of our backlists.

- If It Drives is currently the only book in the series where neither main character is employed by Market Garden.
- If It Drives features the character known as Red Tie from If It Fornicates.
- Nick and Spencer are back in this one. So are Frank and Brandon.
- The entire series – and particularly If It Flies, If It Fornicates, and If It Drives – was inspired by a quote Aleks saw in an interview. An eccentric billionaire who’d had some expensive divorces commented that, “If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.”
- Yes, Rolex will be back, just not in this book.
- At 58,000 words, If It Drives is currently the longest book in the series.
- The name Market Garden is a World War II reference.
- While Quid Pro Quo was the first Market Garden book to be released, the first one we actually wrote was If It Flies, which was our second co-written book. The first was Unhinge the Universe.
- If It Drives is one of two books we’ve written together face to face instead of over the internet. The second will be out in early 2015.
- There are at least four more Market Garden books in the works.
From the Publisher:
If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.
After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.
But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.
As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realises, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.

Connect with Aleks:
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer currently living in the glamorous and ultra-futuristic metropolis of Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a disembodied penguin brain that communicates with her telepathically. In addition to writing smut and disturbing the locals, L.A. is said to be working with the US government to perfect a genetic modification that will allow humans to survive indefinitely on Corn Pops and beef jerky. This is all a cover, though, as her primary leisure activity is hunting down her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who is also said to be lurking somewhere in Omaha.
