72 Hours by Clare London

September 17, 2010

72 Hours by Clare London is now available in paperback and eBook.

Tanner Mackay and Niall Sutherland were once far more than just fellow intelligence agents. But then a mission went horribly wrong and everything fell apart, sending Tanner into hiding and splitting the team and their affair wide apart.

Now an unknown traitor is threatening the team, and their ex-boss is determined to reunite them before it’s too late. She finds Tanner in a run-down trailer park, bringing with her a most unwelcome refugee in need of temporary sanctuary: Niall, the man he thought he’d never have to face again. The man he’s sure feels exactly the same in return.

Trapped in a situation that’s both claustrophobic and highly dangerous, Tanner and Niall will have to revisit their past and reconsider their perceptions, their loyalties—and their desires—in order to survive, let alone forge a future together.

Genre: Mystery/Suspense

Hi everyone, and thanks for joining me on the launch day of my new novel “72 Hours”. 

I’m posting this first entry on a bright, chilly London morning – and maybe some of my readers aren’t even awake yet :) .  But feel free to comment whenever you like, and I’ll be dropping back in during the rest of today to post more excerpts, say Hi! and answer any questions you have.

Isn’t that cover superb? LOL Many thanks to the uber-talented Anne Cain and DSP’s own Mara for her cover design.

EXCERPT#1: (NC17) Niall and Tanner first meet…

Niall kissed like a demon, but a very sweet, very sincere demon.  His tongue was hot and fast and fucking gorgeous.  He tasted of the wine, the pasta sauce and the mints that came with the check.  He pressed fiercely against me, like he’d been holding himself back for the last hour or so but was now released from whatever inhibitions he’d had, and his hands twisted sharply into my hair at the back of my neck.  I could feel strands working loose from the tie and his fingertips pressing on the thin skin at the nape.  His eyes were open, watching my reactions, and his hands never strayed past my shoulders.  He was waiting, I think, to double check I was okay with it all.

I may have been an acting coach at work, but no one had ever accused me of being difficult to read when it came to sex, whether kissing or something far more intimate.  I slid both my arms around his waist and pulled him in even closer, tight against my body.  My lips pressed back hard against his and I gasped my willingness into his mouth.  I felt his body tighten and the muscles slide against my own, all the way from torso to knee.  The door eased open behind us and we half-fell into the hallway, laughing, groaning, still nipping at each other’s lips.

Author Trivia Contest Day 9

September 16, 2010

Congratulations to everyone who correctly guessed Mary Calmes as yesterday’s author. Tracey D is our winner. She can pick any of Mary’s titles.

Mary Calmes currently lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, with her husband and two children and hopes to eventually move off the rock to a place where her children can experience fall and even winter. She graduated from the University of the Pacific (ironic) in Stockton, California, with a bachelor’s degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She works at a copy store but has been unable to incorporate that into a book… yet. She also buys way too many books on Amazon.

Check out Mary’s full story list.

Congratulations to everyone who correctly guessed Sean Kennedy as yesterday’s author. Laura R is our winner. She can pick any of Sean’s titles.

Sean Kennedy lives in the second-most isolated city in the world, so it’s just as well he has his imagination for company when real-life friends are otherwise occupied. He has far too many ideas and wishes he had the power to feed them directly from his brain into the laptop so they won’t get lost in the ether.

After trying out publishing and public relations, she took up a career as an advertising copy writer. Now, she’s happy to add “fiction writer” to the resume.
