LONDON EYE by Clare London


Oliver's been dumped by his date in the backstreets of London, where his Armani suit and a rich family background don't count for much.
Des is waiting tables to make ends meet, reconciled to the fact that all he attracts are lame ducks and lost causes.
Two different men, two very different worlds.

Then Des’s cheerful generosity meets Oliver’s lovelorn confusion over a cup of coffee and a bag of sinfully good chocolates...Enter Chance, working at the Cafe Mystique under the looming presence of the London Eye, searching as always for The One, matchmaking with his own brand of sensual, sweet and shocking magic.

What follows is a mix of providence, passion and good old British pounds. After all, everyone should give credit where credit’s due.

MEDIA NARANJA (the Other Half) by Clare London and Jordan Castillo Price

Love is not for the faint of heart. Mild-mannered Trevor accompanies his Gran Elsie on holiday at a luxury resort in Majorca, hoping for some rest and relaxation under the dazzling Spanish sun. But they didn’t count on arriving in the middle of Flamenco Week. Instead of massages and siestas, they find noisy builders and tacky theme parties.

Trevor has a choice to make: put up, or shut up—and working up the nerve to complain to the staff, the mysterious Chance and imperturbable Hunter, is far from easy. But the impromptu assertiveness training comes in handy when he catches the eye of the manager’s son, Alejo.

There’s someone for everyone—even Trevor—providing he finds the courage to stand up for what he wants.

All fabulous cover art by Jordan Castillo Price

Petit Morts : a series by Jordan Castillo Price, Josh Lanyon, Sean Kennedy and Clare London.

A storefront. You've never noticed it before. It's small, unassuming, and yet there's something about it that draws your eye. And the aroma drifting out, rich and dark, so enticing. How could you have overlooked it? It must be new.

So why does it look like it's been there for ages? And the chocolatier behind the counter...certainly you'd remember him.

Windlasses ahoy, me hearties...


What do YOU think about writing Britain for an American audience? Do you like a mix of nationalities in your fiction or do you get depressed reaching for a dictionary every fourth page? Do you prefer trousers to pants - pavement to sidewalk - fringe to bangs ... and do you want to know just what "gobsmacked" means?!

Come over to Josh Lanyon's journal today and read an interview with Josephine Myles - ably (or not so) assisted by J. L. Merrow and ME!

Jo is celebrating the release of her new novel Barging In - more about that next week, when she's here as my guest. But in the meantime: here is her own seductive BUY LINK! Go take a look...

When the boat's a rockin’, don't come knockin’!

Out-and-proud travel writer Dan Taylor can’t steer a boat to save his life, but that doesn’t stop him from accepting an assignment to write up a narrowboat holiday. Instead of a change of pace from city life, though, the canal seems dull as ditchwater. Until he crashes into the boat of a half-naked, tattooed, pierced man whose rugged, penniless appearance is at odds with a posh accent.

Still smarting from past betrayal, Robin Hamilton’s “closet” is his narrowboat, his refuge from outrageous, provocative men like Dan. Yet he can’t seem to stop himself from rescuing the hopelessly out-of-place city boy from one scrape after another. Until he finds himself giving in to reluctant attraction, even considering a brief, harmless fling.

After all, in less than a week, Dan’s going back to his London diet of casual hook-ups and friends with benefits.

Determined not to fall in love, both men dive into one week of indulgence…only to find themselves drawn deep into an undertow of escalating intimacy and emotional intensity. Troubled waters neither of them expected…or wanted.
