LYLBTB Advent Event 2013 : Clare London

Clare London has a great looking book out this Christmas – one that I am really looking forward to read! We also asked Clare for a Christmas treat or tradition that she and her family may have, this is what she shared ….

christmas_stocking1… one of our favourites is the Christmas stocking on Christmas Day morning. We started them for the Sons when they were children, but now ALL the family has one. It has the traditional satsuma (or orange) in the toe, but the rest of the space is up for grabs! For eaxmple, this year I have a bag of chocolate foil-wrapped “Brussel sprouts” for hubby (he hates the real thing), a couple of “Wham!” Lichenstein-style badges for Son#2, a Bazinga keychain for Son#1, and a tin of penis-shaped sweets for my sister – well, maybe I’ll find her something less outrageous before Christmas Day comes! I wonder what will turn up in MY stocking? Here’s hoping it’s another “Just treat me like the Queen” fridge magnet LOL.

In recovery after a serious car accident, Dan struggles with pain and depression until it becomes an ingrained part of his life. His most important support has come from his best friend and boyfriend Aaron, yet Dan knows he’s not giving as much as taking from the relationship.

When he and Aaron are snowed in at a winter sports resort, Dan has to face up to both his physical and emotional restraints. Aaron is determined and devoted, and always willingly there for Dan, but Dan can see his weariness. Aaron wants Dan to accept his love fully, for them to become the best and most intimate of lovers. But how much longer will Aaron wait?

It takes a particularly bitter Christmas — and the weirdest of dreams — to give Dan the courage to grasp what’s important to him, and find the way back to health and love. 

About the Author


Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with the weekly wash, waiting 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 novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy.

Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters.

Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter 3 stage and plenty of other projects in mind . . . she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.
