New release – Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Number #5 of the London Lads series is on sale at all your fave retailers :D.

Garry’s at the end of his tether. He’s waiting at Glasgow Airport to meet his friend Will, on their way to a holiday in a Scottish Highlands hotel. Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.

He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.

To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world. Struggling with their well-meaning help and the startling mess from spilled ketchup and noxious-smelling sweets, he’s encouraged to re-examine how he feels about Will and to decide what kind of journey he’d really like them to take together.

Early Reviews have been very enthusiastic!

From Diverse Reader: “…And you’ve got to feel kind of sorry for him.  He has a lot going on, all at one time, and the last thing he needs it babysit two little kids that he doesn’t even know.  But through the forced entrapment, through the messy candy and French fries with ketchup, the kids help him untangle the mess that his life has become.  Who would have thought that kids had the ability to help with very adult issues.  But sometimes kids see things in far simpler terms than adults, and sometimes the simplest solutions are the best ones…”

From Dog-Eared Daydreams: “…Clare London’s collection of novellas entitled London Lads, originally released through a different publisher several years ago before being re-published this year by Dreamspinner Press, has reached its end and she certainly left the best one for last. Each of the novellas has a unique feel to it, but it’s book number five, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, which has stood out. Maybe it’s the fact that most of the book has the main character in the company of a seven-year-old and a ten-year-old, but there’s a quirkiness to it that I found endearing and absolutely entertaining.”

About clarelondon

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters. Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind... she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home. Clare loves to hear from readers, and you can contact her here: Website: E-mail: Blog: Facebook: Twitter: Goodreads: Amazon: Google+ :
