Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This collection includes Clare London’s first two London-based novellas of the With A Kick series—A Twist and Two Balls and Slap and Tickle. Also included are two short stories featuring the characters in these books—Nice and Snow and Smack Happy.

With a Kick is a new ice cream shop, featuring ice cream for adults, i.e., ice cream made with liquor in a variety of flavors, one of which is named for the shop’s accountant, Bryan, and his new boyfriend, Phiz—Slap and Tickle. Patrick and Lee are the struggling owners who hope to be successful in the little shop located in the heart of London.

Each story is a self-contained romance, but Patrick and Lee are featured in each story that shows the progress of both their relationship and the business.

A Twist and Two Balls— Eduardo Mancini is going to be a star…

A morning of startling joy

Morning all :). Unaccustomed as I am to tooting my own horn… no, seriously.

I received note of three lovely reviews last week, on two of my titles. I cannot describe how much that made my day(s)!

In my writing and publishing journey so far, I’ve had great reviews, I’ve had bleahh reviews, I’ve had downright weird, incomprehensible ones :). And I reckon I’ve developed a pretty sanguine approach to them now. (though let’s not talk about how long that’s taken LOL….)

But to read a thoughtful, carefully and individually penned commentary, laced with enthusiasm and appreciation of the story and the characters….

WOW. Always a startling joy.

 Thank you, all those who read, love and SHARE.

/end of rather slushy post. It has been a rather grim start to the year for me, is all I can say in my defence, albeit nothing to do with writing.

Oh, and the reviews?!

Review of 7&7 – Virtues and Vices anthology

Potential-OTDU-Banner-91

A fabulously thorough and thoughtful review of this FREE anthology at DSP Publications.
14 authors contribute their stories – find your favourites and discover new ones!

BLURB: Humankind possesses a dual nature, the ability to rise to the brightest heights—or sink to the darkest and most perverse depths.

What inspires some to reach the pinnacles of virtue while others cannot resist the temptations of vice? Is it something innate, or a result of destiny and circumstance?

Delve into the minds and spirits of saints and sinners alike with a collection of stories that explore the call toward good or evil—and the consequences of answering it. For while rewards certainly await the righteous, there are also pleasures to be found in the darkness. Venture off the expected path with some of the most innovative voices in LGBT speculative fiction as they present their unique takes on the classic vices and virtues.

Includes my story TRAITOR (Fortitude):
Two men face each other from opposing sides of the political fence: the interrogator and the traitor.

Aiden Hanwell rarely knows the name of prisoners he interrogates on behalf of MI5’s specialist Department. But at their London base, he’s shocked to find Cameron Fischer – a man he knows only too well. Cam was a fellow agent but defected to a terrorist cell six months ago, turning traitor to the Department and to Aiden, his lover. Now Cam has returned, but as a prisoner with no hope of escape.

Aiden struggles to understand Cam’s motives while nursing his personal pain. Cam is haunted by his betrayal of a lover he’d cared for deeply. In those tense hours, neither of them can see any common ground or chance to reconcile, unless there are other secrets to be uncovered—and their skills are up to the task.
