Freeman visits Joyfully Jay + Giveaway

Come on over and join me at Joyfully Jay’s this week, where they’re featuring my re-release of FREEMAN. I’m chatting about the essence of Freeman, one of my favourite heroes – the fact he turns out to be an Unreliable Narrator. There’s romance and mystery and suspense and drama in the story – but is everything what it really seems???

There are also TWO copies up for grabs, for the price of a comment at JAY’S POST.

I’d love to see you there 🙂

Freeman’s return to the city is quiet, without fuss. Another client: another case. He’ll source what they need and be on his way. But he’s been missed by more people than he thought: his ex-wife, his ex-lover, and his ex-business partner. And at least one of them wants him the hell gone again.

Freeman — private, controlled – just does his job. But when he strikes up an unusual friendship with the young runaway Kit, trouble comes looking for both men, ready to expose secrets that can destroy their fragile trust. Yet, for Kit, Freeman’s more than ready for the challenge.

Five Senses Blog Tour

From our Hostess, RJ Scott: “Most of you know that I hold an annual blog hop highlighting World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd. Every year we discuss different issues and this year the blog hop focuses on how people on the autism spectrum can quite differently to taste, touch, hearing, sight and smell. Each author taking part will have a fact based around the senses.

We have a wonderful line-up of authors taking part in the blog hop. Don’t forget to visit them as the month progresses.”

Today’s fact: “Chemical receptors in the tongue tell us about different tastes – sweet, sour, spicy and so on. People with an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) who are hyposensitive to taste may like very spicy foods. In extreme cases, they may suffer from pica, where they will eat everything – soil, grass, Play-dough, anything….”

I’m on holiday this week and hope you’ll forgive me if I just post one of my short&sweet ficlets! And however this starts… it all ends on the topic of TASTE!

RICH AND TANGY

“Back off.” Kyle’s eyes narrowed. He took an unsteady step backward.

“No way.” Jason backed him up against the table and stared him out. Blue eyes, glittering, dark with anger and…yes, hunger.

Yes way,” hissed Kyle. He tried to turn his head away but Jason’s breath still brushed his neck; it was hot. Fuck it, Jason was hot, Kyle knew it too well. The hairs on the back of his neck rose.

Jason leant forward and placed his hands on the table edge, either side of Kyle’s trembling body. His eyes drifted down to Kyle’s mouth and then back up to his face.  His eyes widened. “So you did it – despite all you promised.”

Kyle felt the sweat springing up on his palms. “I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.”

“You swore to me you had integrity – patience – self-control.”

Kyle snorted. “For fuck’s sake, what are you, my mother?”

Jason growled.  Kyle felt the vibration against his chest and his legs instinctively shifted apart, trying to take up a steadier position.

“No, I’m not your mother,” Jason muttered. “Else I’d have taken you in hand way before now.”

Kyle started to laugh. “This is ridiculous. I’m a grown man. I can do what the hell I like.”

“Not any more.” Jason took hold of Kyle’s left arm and pressed his hand palm down on the table, beside him. He did the same with the right one. He put his own hands over them, and applied pressure. The careful way that he moved was deceptive. “You’re mine, now.”

The Double Scoop Blog Tour rumbles on…

The blog tour rumbles on through *your* online town!

Read a fabulous review over at Rainbow Book Reviews:

EXCERPT: “…I’ve been waiting for Patrick and Lee’s story although I feared there would be problems. I wanted to knock some sense into them both. Patrick whose reasoning about being too old and not right for Lee was ridiculous, and Lee, although he tried to take the first step, should have demanded to know what Patrick was feeling. Bringing all the previous characters together to help Patrick and Lee created a great opportunity to review relationships between them. For those who haven’t read the series, I suggest starting at the beginning and reading all the way through. Thanks, Clare, for finally getting Patrick and Lee together and for all the other eccentric, zany, wonderful characters contained in the ‘With a Kick’ series…”

I’m also interviewed *ulp* over at Ann Barwell’s blog Drops of Ink, where you can find out where my characters come from, read a snippet from my next novel, and discover what stationery items I lust over the most :).
