Eyes Wide Open by Lucy Felthouse

Eyes Wide Open by Lucy Felthouse

A standalone novel from the Totally Five Star imprint.

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, though, 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 that 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. Yet 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.

Excerpt:

Continuing to surreptitiously peer at the men over the rim of her glass, it hit her that this was the first time in months that she’d looked at a man with interest, much less two men—and at the same time! But, ready to snatch her gaze away if one of them happened to glance at her, she realized that it wasn’t surprising that the pair had attracted her attention.

The tailored business suits would draw the eye even on an ugly guy. But on these two, the fine clothing was practically an orgasm for the gaze. They sat opposite each other, and their angle to her meant that she had a view of both their profiles—lucky her.

The one to her right had very dark, almost black hair, with a bit of a curl to it, a long straight nose, a trimmed goatee and, if she wasn’t mistaken, deep blue eyes. It was hard to tell for sure from this distance and perspective.

The one on her left had lighter, shorter hair, stubble that by some magical feat still looked smart, and the most sinful lips she’d ever set eyes on. And speaking of eyes, she thought perhaps his were green. What she wouldn’t give to go and check both of them out close up, preferably naked.

Shocked at her own sudden lustful thoughts, she inhaled more than drank another sip of the juice. Unfortunately, it hit her throat all wrong and she almost slammed the glass down as she started to cough. She tried so hard to suppress the cough, eager not to draw attention to herself, that she made it worse. Snatching up the thick linen serviette from the table, she held it to her mouth as she spluttered in a most embarrassing manner, and tears began to roll down her cheeks. By now, she was sure that the whole damn restaurant was staring at her, and she wished the tablecloths reached the floor, like the ones in the restaurant upstairs, so she could hide under the table until she regained her composure.

Swallowing repeatedly to try to soothe her irritated throat, she gasped as a gentle hand laid on her shoulder, which set her off all over again.

“Oh God,” came a voice. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to make you jump. I just wanted to make sure you were all right. See if I could help.”

Unable to speak, Fiona waved a hand to try to signal that she’d be okay, but unless the guy was a mind reader, he’d have no luck figuring that out. Blinking through the tears that marred her vision, her urge to hide underneath the table grew stronger. Christ, it was only the hottie with the blue eyes. And, if she wasn’t mistaken, his sexy friend with the green eyes was also hovering close by, concern etched into his handsome features.

Managing to drag in a breath, she huffed out, “Thank you.”

Just then, Jeremy arrived with a carafe of water, complete with ice, and poured her a glassful. “Here you go, Fiona. Drink this. Are you all right? Anything else I can get you?”

Bear Your Fangs by Aurora Russell

Bear Your Fangs by Aurora Russell

When Eva rents a cabin in the woods to reassess her life after a painful breakup, she hears rumors of disappearing hikers. Despite the stories, she resolves to stay awhile. Until she sees a crazed-looking giant wolf outside her window—with a hiker’s leg in his mouth. Things get even stranger when an enormous bear fights off the wolf—and then turns into a gorgeous man.

Randulf is a shapeshifting vampire charged with tracking down the rogue werewolf and executing him before he can kill more humans. But he’s wounded in the fight, and only two things can help him heal quickly enough to save both him and Eva from a second attack: sex and human blood. Eva is happy to oblige—over and over again.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

Aurora is originally from the frozen tundra of the upper-Midwest (ok, not frozen all the time!) but now loves living in New England with her real-life hero/husband, wonderfully silly son, and two of the most extraordinary cats she has ever had the pleasure to meet. But she still goes back to the Midwest to visit, just never in January.

She doesn’t remember a time that she didn’t love to read, and has been writing stories since she learned how to hold a pencil. She has always liked the romantic scenes best in every book, story, and movie, so one day she decided to try her hand at writing her own romantic fiction, which changed her life in all the best ways.

About Zoë Mullins

The only reason Zoë learned to type in high school was so she could write even faster. A prolific writer, even in elementary school, she was jotting down poems and stories whenever she had the chance – usually during math class. After years of working in corporate communications, Zoë decided to refocus on the kind of writing she loved – hot romances with strong, independent heroines. Zoë and her husband of nearly 20 years (yes they did marry in elementary school, thank you for thinking so) live in Atlantic Canada with their fur-family (two dogs at this time).  When not at her desk or with her laptop in the gazebo, you can find her at her favorite yoga studio, camping by the lake or renovating their money-pit of a house.

Zoë loves to hear from her readers. You can contact Zoë by email, Facebook or Twitter. If you want to get more insights into the characters you’ve read about, or get a sneak peak at what’s ahead, check out her Pinterest page!

Can you tell everyone a little about yourself?
First and foremost I’m a single mom of the most amazing teenage daughter anyone could ask for. Sure I’m bias, but more because she’s just like me, which makes me proud and getting grey hair at an early age. Being a young, single mom has made me strong and self-sufficient and those are two big characteristics I pass onto my female characters in my writing.

There are three things in this world I am addicted to; writing my characters, watching sports, and coffee. Not sure what I would do if one of those was taken away from me. Pretty sure all three are needed to survive my crazy life.

Other than being a single mom, and a inspiring author, I also work full time at an attorney’s office. Which of course mean 12 hours of my day is either spent in my truck sitting in traffic or behind a desk. Most of my ideas and inspiration come when I’m sitting in those hours of traffic.

As far as me as a writer, I’m a little different than your typical romance author. I don’t believe that happily ever after is the same for all my characters. When I write, I’m writing their stories and I stay true to who they are and not box them into the ‘meet, fall in love, get married’, outline. Each of them is very different and each of their relationships are very different. Someone once told me to write what I love and what I believe in, because if I didn’t then my readers would never believe what I’m writing and they would never invest themselves in my character’s lives. Because of that, I am no longer afraid to go with my gut, even if it doesn’t fit into the typical box.

 

Are you Indie Published, Traditional, Hybrid, unpublished?

I’m currently Indie Unpublished. But hoping that unpublished part won’t be for too much longer.

 

Tell us a little about your current work, project, or book?
My current series is called Dark Dreams, which will bring the reading into the paranormal world filled with demons, gods, slayers, shifters and witches. The first book is called Dare to Dream and is about a female slayer, Nellie and her best friend and panther shifter, Nathaniel. This book introduces the world of the slayers as well as getting to meet a lot of the other characters that will part of the whole series. I hope to have this one ready to publish end of summer/beginning of fall.
One of the characters that will be introduced happens to be my favorite and always will be, Empusa. Her story is the other book I’m currently working on called Endless Nightmare. That book will most likely be a novella and is the origin story of Empusa. Hope to have that one ready by the end of 2014.

 

What is coming up next for you?

After Dare to Dream and Endless Nightmare, I’ll be working on the third book in the series which will continue Empusa’s story from where it leaves off in the previous book.

 

Where can readers follow you and will you be appearing in person anywhere in 2014?
