Finally Found—Lesbian Erotic Romance by Lucy Felthouse

Blurb:

Natalia has been in love with her best friend Ashleigh for years, ever since they were housemates at university. Unfortunately, circumstances, and then Natalia’s unwillingness to jeopardise their friendship, mean that she has never confessed her feelings, choosing instead to be grateful for the close relationship they do have. However, on a weekend away together, a bottle or two of wine and an erotic book place the girls in a highly charged sexual situation. Will Natalia make a move, or is she too afraid to rock the boat and risk losing Ashleigh altogether?

Please note: This story was previously published as part of the Lover Unexpected: Sappho Edition anthology.

Excerpt:

Natalia smiled as she caught sight of the familiar redhead sitting at a table in the hotel bar. Thankful for the thick carpet masking her footsteps, she walked up behind her friend, ensuring she wouldn’t be seen. Then she slipped her hands over her eyes. “Guess who?”

An excitable squeak, then, “Oh, I don’t know. Is it Scarlett Johansson?”

“Hmm, close, but not quite. Guess again.”

“Oh, shut up you silly cow, and come here.” With that, the redhead stood and turned, throwing her arms around Natalia and pulling her into a tight hug. “Hey, gorgeous. I missed you! How are you?”

“I missed you too, Ashleigh. I’m good, thanks. How about you? You look great.”

Disentangling from their embrace, Ashleigh looked down at her clingy black top and skinny jeans and shrugged. “Thanks. I’m okay, I guess. All the better for seeing you. It’s been forever. Come on, sit down. Let’s get a drink.”

They sat down, and a waiter appeared. Natalia suspected he’d been waiting at a safe distance until they’d finished their enthusiastic greeting.

He smiled. “What can I get you ladies?”

Natalia looked at her watch. “You know what, it’s Saturday and it’s after twelve. I’ll have a glass of white wine, please. Something mid-range and not too dry.”

Ashleigh piped up. “Make it a bottle. Thanks.”

The waiter nodded, gave a little bow and walked away.

“So,” Natalia said, settling back into the plush armchair, “how was your journey? I always find getting into London a total nightmare, but it’s not so bad once you’re here. The Tube may be sweaty and crowded, but at least it’s fast.”

Ashleigh nodded. “It was all right, actually. The train into the city was on time and not very busy, and, like you say, the Tube is quick and easy. It was pretty stress-free. You?”

“Much the same. I’m just glad we’re finally here. I can’t believe it’s been a year since we’ve seen each other. It’s so easy to forget that when we talk almost every day.”

“I know. I’m sorry. It’s just life gets in the way, doesn’t it? Especially as we live so far apart. And then there was all that stuff with Kayla…” Ashleigh lapsed into silence and dropped her gaze to the table.

Natalia didn’t know how to respond to that, so she just nodded sagely. Kayla had been Ashleigh’s live-in girlfriend, until the discovery of some text messages and emails tipped Ashleigh off that she was being cheated on. Despite all of Kayla’s pleas and declarations of true and undying love, Ashleigh had no intention of being a doormat, so she’d thrown Kayla out, and that was the end of it.

Of course, Natalia had known that Kayla was going to be thrown out before Kayla did. As soon as Ashleigh had found the incriminating missives, she’d gotten straight on the phone to Natalia for advice. And as much as Natalia wanted to tell her friend to get the hell rid of the cheating bitch, she also wanted her to be happy, so instead she’d asked Ashleigh if she thought she was being too hasty.

“Fuck no,” Ashleigh had replied, “as far as I’m concerned, she’s destroyed my trust. Once that happens things are never the same, so it’s not worth it. And if I meant that much to her, she wouldn’t have done it, would she?”

“I should’ve told him…” #MWTease #MFRWAuthor #Menage

Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!

Christmas is coming! Book 4 in our Meghan’s Playhouse series is releasing as a Stocking Stuffer at Extasy Books on December 6 – here’s a taste to whet your appetite:

 

EXCERPT

Sitting in Lisa’s kitchen nook, Meg nibbled on a cookie, trying to make sense of her friend’s distress over her boyfriend’s intentions. “So you think Bryce is going to give you a ring for Christmas?”

Lisa bit her lower lip and nodded.

Meg cocked her head to the side. “And that’s not good? Or is it? Do you love him?

“Of course I love him,” Lisa retorted. “That’s not the problem.”

“Well, he must love you, or he wouldn’t be giving you a ring.”

“I know he does.” Lisa paused, tightening her finger around a coffee cup. “He says he does. I believe him. At least he thinks he does.”

“Sounds like some hesitancy on your part. Are you hoping there will be a ring for Christmas?”

“Yes. But…”

Meg reached across the small table and patted Lisa’s hand. “What is it? You know you can tell me.”

“I know.” Lisa pulled her hand away. “You’re part of the problem.”

“Me! How can I be part of the problem? I’ve only met Bryce a few times, including the other night. He seems like a nice guy. And the two of you seem to do well together.”

“I don’t mean just you.” Lisa fought back tears. “Bryce doesn’t know I’m into women. That I’m bi.”

Meg gulped. “Oh my. And you think he’ll dump you because you’re bi?”

“I don’t know. I should’ve told him.”

BLURB

A ring for Christmas? Sometimes what you hope for and what you fear are one and the same.

In Las Vegas for a brief stint in a musical revue and ready for some uncomplicated sex with a kindred spirit, Meghan Keenan is only too happy to resume connections with her sometimes lover, Lisa Perkins.

But Lisa’s in a quandary. Her most recent boyfriend has suddenly become serious, with hints of a diamond ring in her future—and she’s never told him she’s bisexual. What if he freaks? What if he makes her choose?

Professional photographer Bryce Henry spends his days up close and personal with beautiful models and actresses. Now he’s deeply in love with Lisa and ready to pop the question, but even he wonders about long term fidelity. What does he want, and how bad does he want it?

What will happen when Meg takes hold of Lisa’s problem and runs with it?

You’re never too old to learn a new trick!

I’m retired. What do I do now?

A lot of people get bored and go back to work. Initially, I played spider solitaire for hours, much to my wife’s disgust. She challenged me to do something useful—how about writing a story since you’re not tackling my honey-do list?

Why not?

One minor issue, I’m awful at English and eons ago only managed to scrape through school with a bare pass. At work, I struggled to use Word, especially with longer reports and merging input from contributors. Different styles are a nightmare. Software has evolved and after an internet search, I decided to try Scrivener, a tool for writers. Thirty minutes later, the software was downloaded and installed. After one or two trial runs, I felt comfortable to start writing.

What to write?

When I was younger, my favorite authors were Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and of course Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, who pioneered the scifi genre. Along the way, I discovered Ray Bradbury, Roger Heinlein, a touch of comedy with Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams, and many more great authors.
Could I compete? Probably not, but I’m writing for me.
What genre? I felt more comfortable with paranormal scifi and decided to start there…with one difference. I wanted the story to be racy.

It took me three months to write Alex, a 40,000-word novella. The story wrote itself. The characters took over, and I wanted to continue writing to find out what would happen! Needless to say, I didn’t do an outline.

What do we do now, self-publish or follow a more traditional approach? Money is tight. I decided to follow the tried and true path and look for a publisher. My wife didn’t like Alex, but my euphoria at actually finishing a story won out. Looking back, I should have listened. Back then, I didn’t have any idea of the difference between show and tell. Trigger words…what are they?

How I found a publisher is a topic worthy of a separate blog.

I’m still learning. After a lull of twenty years, I’m reading again. This time not just science fiction but multiple genres, and I read articles on how to write—they’re fascinating. I have a technique that works for me. I write quickly, still with no outline. The characters know what to do. I then put the draft to one side and leave it. I have a couple that have been waiting for a year. I then read them. They’re fresh, but I have an advantage over a reader. What I don’t like, I can change or build upon. The engineer in me writes the summary version first. The second time, I add atmosphere.

For me, this is step one of the edit process. Step two is compile the Scrivener file into Word, re-read, check hyphens, similar words, over-usage of phrases and words. It’s at this time you need a beta reader. I’m lucky, my wife reads them. Depending on what she says, the story could go from a total rewrite, fleshing out areas, correcting storyline flaws, or a final pass through prior to submission.

So…if you’re wondering what to do, or sitting watching the TV…remember, you’re never too old to learn a new trick.

Go for it. I’ve fifteen, and counting, published titles.
