Masquerade by Author Clare London

Today we start my author spotlights. To kick it off we have Clare London in the hot seat. 🙂

Author Bio and links:

Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves and writes. She juggles fiction with a frantic family life and waits 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 short stories published both online and in print anthologies. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama, with a healthy serving of erotica, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters. Clare currently has a fantasy novel in the process of publication, two more nearing the submission stage and plenty of other projects in mind . . . she just has to find out where she left them in amongst the frantic family life. Clare’s website : www.darkpearldiva.comClare’s blog : http://claredivatoo.livejournal.com/Find Clare London at MySpace and Authors Den, too!

Tell us about your latest book and what you think readers will get out of it.

 Masquerade was published in December 2007 and is an anthology of 4 erotic, enthralling tales in the male/male paranormal genre.  It has a combination of drama, mystery, obsessive love, angst and humor.  I’m hoping that will suit everyone and anyone’s palate!  Each tale is set in a different place, some in a fantasy world, some in our own world but in a different time.  I’d love to hear what people think of it!  Reviews to date have been very complimentary.You can find it at Eternal Press www.eternalpress.com.au. 

Can you describe your characters to us? Do you pattern them after anyone you know or is it pure imagination?

 Pure imagination, I assure you! Though I confess that I’ve always got my eyes and ears open for scenes and conversations in ordinary life that might inspire fiction.  I like to write – and read – strong, sexy, sensual characters, but ones who sometimes struggle with communicating and coping with their feelings.  Just like us all, really!  I love dialogue – I love the interaction between two different men, two different ‘voices’, and that’s what usually leads the characterization.

 

What genre have you not done but want to in the future?

Oh I’m still dreaming of having the talent and tenacity to write a proper crime novel – not just having a crime or mystery as a sub-plot!  I love to read them so much, but when I write, I get distracted by the characters, rather than the strict plot…LOL  

Tell us about your most erotic romantic fantasy. If you could have a 24-hour romantic fling with anyone you want, where would you go, what would you do and with whom would you do it with? 

 *sigh* My romantic fantasy would be something deliciously passive because I’m always so exhausted running around with life!  I’d love to have a small group of handsome young men attending to my every whim… and if they wanted to spend any of their spare time playing with each other in front of me, I’m sure I wouldn’t mind LOLAnyone in particular? Sorry if it disappoints, but a real romantic fling would have to be with my husband, who’s still my romantic fling extraordinaire.  It’d just be good to have some uninterrupted, non-stressful time together, so if anyone can send me the tickets for a week at the cocktail bar on a Caribbean island…

 If you could have one special super or magical power, what would it be?

I’d like to be able to teleport anywhere, any time.  It’s the only way I’d stand a chance of doing all the things I want to do, seeing all the places there are to be seen, and catching up with all the friends I’d like to see more of! 

If you could visit any place any time, what would it be and why? 

I’d love to be in Elizabethan England, in London, though preferably in the court rather than in the slums LOL.  There are so many things from the history books that I’d like to know the truth about.  And the intrigue and customs of court life have always fascinated me. 

 What’s more fun to write about: Bad boys or perfect gentlemen and why?

 Well, writing male/male means that I get he chance to do both, doesn’t it? LOL But on balance, I prefer the bad boys – as a writer (and a reader, I hope) there’s so much more to explore about them, they’re more complex, more tortured, more uninhibited.

 

Do you watch reality tv? If so, what is your guilty pleasure? if not, what do you prefer to watch? 

 No, I’m not keen on reality TV, personally, though I did get drawn into some of the Strictly Come Dancing programs we had here in the UK.  I’d rather the programming money was spent on good, new drama  – but that’s just my opinion.  My real guilty pleasure is choosing just one program a week when I abandon writing and steal the TV remote from the rest of the family, and nothing get in my way.  It was Heroes until recently – now it’s Torchwood. 

VIN Diesel or Gerard Butler?

 Gerard Butler.  I am a HUGE fan of the movie 300 LOL

Devon Falls: Red Hot Magic

Devon Falls: Red Hot Magic

Coming February 2008 from Aspen Mountain Press

Not sure yet if it is a stand alone or if it is in an anthology but here is a sneak look into Raven’s story.

Unedited excerpt (May change after editing):

As the breeze swirled around the room, it caressed her naked body, making her nipples tighten and wetness pool in her core. Trying not to let her mystery man know how he much he affected her, Raven tried to still her aching body with deep breaths. That is until she spied the tall man walking towards her from the shadows. With hair dark as midnight, a body that had her almost weeping in pleasure at the strength that seemed to storm her defenses with just a look, stormy blue eyes locked onto her green ones. He was easily over 6 foot 5” and he was utterly, deliciously naked…with a cock that begged to be suckled and licked. It was absolutely the largest one Raven had ever seen and it was growing larger with ever step he took towards her. She knew instinctively this man would give her the ultimate pleasure she has been searching for with and she would crave more from him.Gulping quickly, she felt rather than saw him sit on the edge of the bed. As her eyes traveled up his body to his face, she caught laughter in those marvelous eyes as he watched her take stock in his body.“Love, you don’t have to be afraid. You know who I am even if you don’t want to admit it. I am your soul mate and I have been searching for you for a long time. You need me as much as I need you, Cheri. Don’t deny our love, because I am coming for you.”Raven shivered as those words slammed into her with a desire that almost had her coming on the spot. Shifting a little, Raven asked again, “Who are you?”  Before she could do or say anything else, this towering man took her hand, palm side up and with a kiss in the center said, “I am your destiny!” Raven tried to speak, her lips opened but before she could say one word she felt him tip her face towards his and as he settled those sexy lips on hers, one last thought pierced her already lust filled brain…Damn he is like a decadent dessert…all ready to gobble up unless you slow yourself down to enjoy every last bite. Jean-Claude watched Raven shiver as he pulled her to him. Knowing he had limited time before his power exhausted itself, he tried not to rush things but damn, he wanted her with a passion that shocked even him. Feeling her lithe body against his, he shuddered as desire raced over him and he felt his cock swell even more. He took his time looking at the one woman who could drive him to distraction. Her skin was like heavy cream, with just a hint of golden sunshine in it, eyes that gleamed in the moonlight like uncut emeralds, her honey blond hair he longed to wrap around his naked body. It was enough to make Jean-Claude want to weep in sheer pleasure as he made this goddess of a woman his for all time. It took all his strength not to cum as his fingertips glided around her body.
