In the Blink of an Eye by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)



Hi everyone,

In the publishing world, it’s often said that things move slowly. Yes, with the invention and increasing popularity of eBooks, things have sped up, but the publishing process does generally give you time to breathe… (unless you write as fast as Doris and Raven, who I can’t keep up with!)

For me, though, the past few weeks have looked something like the image above… whizzing past in the blink of an eye. It’s my own fault, of course. I pitched a novel to Totally Bound Publishing, and happily for me, they wanted it! Then I realised I only had a few weeks to write it, eek! I’m not a slow writer, but nor am I a fast one, plus I don’t write full time. So some serious keyboard-pounding has taken over my life of late. I finished, miraculously, on time. The book, Eyes Wide Open, was then accepted, much to my delight.

Then came more whizzing… sign the contract, fill in a form with the blurb and details for my cover, then edits… it’s been crazy but exciting and I’ve only now (having sent the first round of edits to my editor) had chance to sit back and think about how awesome it is that my next novel is imminent. Woohoo!

So… here’s the blurb for Eyes Wide Open (part of the Totally Five Star imprint), which is due for release on the 22nd September. So in exactly two months, eek! I don’t have a cover at the time of writing this post, but keep an eye on my website and Facebook and Twitter, and I’ll share it when I can 😉

An ordinary girl catapulted into an extraordinary world meets two even more extraordinary men—but what will she do when she discovers their sexy secret?

Fiona Gillespie moved to London shortly after graduating to take advantage of the opportunities the capital could offer. However, months later, she’s still living in a horrid flat and working in a grimy East End pub. The problem is, she doesn’t really know what she wants to do, career-wise. So when she happens upon an advertisement for a job at a plush Mayfair hotel, she jumps at the chance. A great deal of determination and a spot of luck land Fiona her dream role.

But working at the Totally Five Star London is just the beginning. She adores the role and flourishes, impressing her bosses and making her increasingly determined to climb the career ladder.

While her career is flying, her love life is non-existent. She hasn’t even thought about men, never mind met or dated one for months, so when she bumps into two gorgeous businessmen in the hotel, she’s surprised to find her head has been well and truly turned. Even more surprisingly, they flirt with her—both of them! She’s drawn to James and Logan, despite feeling they’re way out of her league.

When a misunderstanding leads Fiona to James and Logan’s sumptuous top-floor suite, she has no idea what she’s about to uncover. Scenes of people-trafficking, drug-pushing and wild sex parties all appear in her active imagination. What she actually sees is something she’d never even considered before, something that piques her interest.

After discovering their sexy secret, what will she do with this new-found knowledge?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal play, spanking, sex toys and bondage.

So, what do you think? Do you like the sound of this sexy ménage tale?

Happy Reading,

Lucy x

P.S. I’m off for a breather now. If you see me sleeping in a corner, leave me be 😉
