OUT NOW! The Archaeologist by Gus Ralthocco
Leopold is an archaeologist working in Malta over the summer alongside students from a visiting university, and Anton, the translator who came to help out. At the start, Anton shares his desire for Leopold. They promise to keep in touch, but Leopold loses his phone, and Anton spirals from low self-esteem.
They reunite through Leopold’s brother, who manages to track down Anton after he realizes Leopold had someone on his mind. When the two meet again, they realize the moment they had together was incredible for both of them and the spark is still alive, but if they want to have a relationship, they need more than that.
Do Leopold and Anton have what it takes to stay together?
