A Sneaky Peek from Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)

Hi everyone,

As promised in my last post, here’s a sneaky peek of what I’ve been up to, and what’s coming soon.

Currently, I’m working on a short story for an anthology, which I’m really enjoying. So let’s hope the publisher enjoys it too and says yes when I submit it. Following that, another anthology submission for another publisher. Following that, I’m hoping to start work on extending what is currently a novella called Hiding in Plain Sight. It’s had a bit of a rocky journey, you see. It was originally written for ARe Books, and they accepted it and it was due to release on the 1st February. Well… then it all went wrong, didn’t it? Luckily I got the rights returned to me really quickly, so I decided to self-publish it. But it’s not been that simple…

When I first started writing the book, I didn’t know quite where it was going to go. But it ran longer, and longer, and I soon realised it wanted to be the first book in a series. Which was fine. But I’ve now decided I do want it to be a series, but a series of novels, rather than novellas. Hence the delay in releasing the book. It could be released as is, but I want to continue the story of the main characters in this book, rather than another one. I hope it will be worth the wait! What makes it all the more exciting is that this is my first spy thriller!

Here’s an exclusive snippet from the start of the book:

Mallory Scott spotted the people she was looking for as soon as she walked into the hotel bar. Hell, she hadn’t even needed to search, they were being so loud and obnoxious that they were practically screaming for attention.

Stupid, in Mallory’s opinion. If you’re going to run an international diamond scam, then surely you’d want to keep a low profile? But no, apparently these guys didn’t give a shit. Not only were they screaming for attention, and getting it, she noticed, as other patrons of the bar shot them the occasional glare, they were also projecting the fact that they were filthy rich. They were supping on the most expensive champagne money could buy and asking if they could have some oysters and caviar brought in. The overwhelming arrogance made her blood boil, but she consoled herself with the fact that by the time she was done with them, they’d be taken down by more than a peg or two—they’d be at rock bottom.

Heading for a table in a position where she could watch them, but remain partially hidden behind a pillar, she shook her head. She could hardly believe they’d kept their multi-million-pound enterprise going for so long. If they ran their operation as sloppily as their current behavior indicated they might, it was a miracle indeed.

Not that it mattered. They could be running the tightest ship ever known to man, and she would still find a way to take them down. It was what she did. For years now, she’d been successfully infiltrating illegal operations of varying kinds, then gradually dismantling them from the inside. Before the criminals realized what was happening, it was too late, their wrists were practically in the handcuffs, their asses on their way to jail.

This project was different from the ones she usually handled. Her past takedowns included terrorist plots, kidnappings, drugs, people trafficking… that kind of thing. She’d been involved because sending in police or military personnel wouldn’t work. Not in those particular circumstances, anyway. To be truly effective, Mallory needed to infiltrate the organizations at the top, gain their trust, or at least enough trust to allow her to snoop, anyway, and acquire evidence of their involvement to ensure their convictions. Otherwise, rushing in and stopping the terrorists, saving people and so on, important as that was, would only affect a tiny part of the organization. It was vital to dismantle the whole thing, from the big bosses and the money men, right down to the minions doing the leg work.

An added bonus to this approach was that the victims of these organizations, as well as being saved, would get a sense of justice having been done to those that hurt them, and the knowledge that they’d never get the opportunity to do it again. It was dangerous but fulfilling work, and Mallory couldn’t imagine doing anything else. She loved the adrenaline rush, the challenge.

And the challenge element was precisely why this job was different. In as much as it wasn’t supposed to be particularly challenging. Intel gathered over the past year had pinpointed the what, the who, though they couldn’t yet put faces to names, the where and the how, and that had been done covertly, without the need for an undercover operative. All that remained in this case was to find out the when, so they could be caught in the act. It should have been simple, really. But the group was careful, exceedingly so. One of their number was a hacker, meaning that trying to access their emails, internet search histories and voicemails, or tap their phones was a no-go. They were smart.

Which meant the only option remaining was the old-fashioned approach.

A honey trap. It was Mallory’s job to attract the attention of one of the men in the group, hell, even one of the women if any of them swung that way—and slowly, slowly cultivate and exploit their relationship in order to get the information she needed. Then boom, another international criminal enterprise would bite the dust.

Which brought Mallory to her current position, dressed up in ludicrously expensive designer gear and half-hiding behind a pillar in the bar of one of Amsterdam’s most exclusive hotels. Someone less experienced than Mallory might have found the idea of staying out of sight ridiculous. The aim was to get the attention of one of the gang members, after all. But Mallory was at the top of her game, the very best of the best, and she knew damn well that putting in a little groundwork early on would pay off in spades. Before she did anything, before she so much as batted an eyelash in the direction of the gang, she needed to identify her target. It was pointless trying to eye-fuck with a bloke from across the room, only to discover he preferred men, or was happily married. That would attract the wrong kind of attention. When she did get noticed by the group, she wanted it to be for the right reasons, and on her terms. If they caught even so much as a whiff of her deception, it would be game over.

In the meantime, my latest release (well, re-release) was A Different Kind of Cosplay, if you want to check it out!

Happy Reading,

Starting 2017 Off With a Bang!

Hello everyone,

And Happy New Year! I, for one, was totally ready to see the back of 2016 and step into this new one. Hopefully it will be better, both professionally and personally. It certainly started off well – I had a book come out on Tuesday, and I’m sharing a little bit about it today, then for my second post later in the month I’ll be chattier 😉 I might even give some sneak peeks of what I have coming out this year, and what I’ll be working on.

The Beauty and the Badass

From the moment Alexei Miles sets eyes on the kickboxing instructor at his new gym, he’s enthralled. She’s strong and sexy, and he senses something in her that speaks to his deepest desires. Bored of meaningless one-night stands, Alexei vows to find out more about the beautiful badass. He hopes his senses are correct—that her desires will match his own, and that his period of unsatisfying sexual encounters is over.

Zoe Harrison notices the new guy as soon as he walks into the gym—difficult not to, really, given he’s a six-feet-plus gorgeous Viking. As well as being attractive, he awakens something deep inside that she’d almost forgotten about. Men that can handle Zoe’s busy lifestyle are few and far between. Add to that her very specific sexual appetites and it’s little wonder she’s been single for so long. Is the Viking about to change all that?

Note: The Beauty and the Badass has been previously released as part of the Dirty Doms boxed set.

More Good Stuff for your eReader by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)

Hi folks,

December has completely gotten away from me this year, so I apologise that my post is so heavy on the book promo. Hopefully January will be kinder 😉

Buuut… part of the reason I’ve been so busy is because of releasing new books! I mentioned Sexy Just Got Kinky in my last post, and here are the final three books that round out my 2016:

Classic Felthouse – released 13th December

Fancy a blast from the past? Then dip in to five short stories from the Lucy Felthouse archive. A handful of her earliest published tales have been polished up and presented to you in one seriously hot collection. Enjoy a sexy soldier, a buxom babe, erotic daydreams, filthy phone sex and a language barrier, and see where it all began for this prolific author of erotica and erotic romance.

Window Dressing – released 20th December

Can Jessie work with a woman with the looks of a pixie and the personality of a dragon to complete the most important task of her career?

Shop-fitter Jessie is sent to London’s Oxford Street to work on a flagship store’s front window overnight. It’s the first time she’s completed such an important task by herself, but the plans and organisation are solid—it’s just a case of getting it turned around before the store re-opens the following morning. What she’s not betting on, however, is the woman in charge of the project—Edith. She has the looks of a pixie but the personality of a dragon, and it soon becomes clear to Jessie that the job isn’t going to be plain sailing, not with Edith being awkward and putting Jessie down at every turn. As the hours drag on, Jessie somehow manages to peer beneath Edith’s frosty exterior, and much to her surprise, she kind of likes what she finds. But will she abandon her principles—and potentially risk her job—for a one-off thing?

Doctor’s Orders – releasing 22nd December

Hospital porter Aaron Miller isn’t expecting a very exciting birthday. He and his doctor boyfriend, Blake Colville, are working opposite shifts, leaving Aaron to go home to an empty house and the prospect of another shift the following day. Just as he’s leaving work, however, an unexpected sexy encounter in a supply cupboard leaves him feeling in a much more celebratory mood. And an impending dirty weekend away with Blake just puts the icing on the non-existent cake. But who needs cake when you’re dating a dominant doctor?

Note: Doctor’s Orders has been previously released as part of the Brit Boys: With Toys boxed set.

Happy Holidays, folks, and I’ll see you in 2017!
