Meet the Author

Clare took the pen name London 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 the weekly wash, waiting for the far distant day when she can afford to give up her day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with 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 3 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.

All the details and free fiction are available at her website. Visit her today and say hello!

Read an Excerpt

I don't know why I doubted it in the first place. Fletcher, after all, was a master. He was my mentor. He wrote the book on proactive procedure, and he breathed and slept tactical negotiation. He could talk a bird down from the tree; he could sell ice to an Eskimo. He'd taken issue with the President; he'd crossed swords with the CIA. And now he trained newbies like me to crash in after him and fuck things up.

Well, okay, so that's why I went in, in the first place, right? Because of him. Fletcher. Yeah, he wrote the book--but I've lived it. Some gut feeling made me think he might need help; and there was no chapter in the training manual on that subject.

That gut feeling helped me see Mad, Hungry Guy's hidden handgun just a fraction before he did. Before Fletcher did.

What followed was so not like the movies I'll never pay my entrance fee to a blockbuster again, not even for the popcorn. Fletcher might have been calling to me to watch out for myself, though I think the only thing I actually heard him murmur was 'Butt out, you moron'. I might have misheard because of the roaring in my ears, of course. Or the panicky, scary thudding of my heart. I didn't stop to ask--I just leaped forward in front of him and went to take the Mad, Hungry Guy down.

    Not worth it.

    Okay its not worth reading. Only 26 pages andthe whole "story" takes place in a span of a few hours. It would be better if the author wrote about what happened before the shooting and then what happened after. Its basicly.... get shot, get kissed, get in a ambulance. Thats the story.
