Heat of the Day

When three become two with no explanation, emotions run high, passions flare and hearts are ripped apart.

Everyone can remember a perfect summer—one with endless blue skies, a heart brimming with true love and nights full of hot, sweaty lust. Well we’ve just had a summer like that, Piper and I, and it was spent in Spain with a man who had that certain je ne sais quoi that we couldn’t resist.

Seraphim came into our lives and blinded us with his beauty, his charisma and his exotic charm. His generosity with his mind, his affection and his body blew us away and the three of us became a joyously tangled trio who needed nothing more than to be together.

So when he left, when we had no way of tracing him, the despair was black, the pain raw and our only comfort was each other. But why did Sera leave? What would make a man walk away from his lovers? And if he showed up again on the doorstep, what the hell would happen after so much angst? One thing’s for sure, it would be an explosive reunion in many ways. Absence might make the heart grow fonder, but it can make the rest of the body highly volatile as need wars with hurt, and pain collides with desire.

What A Year!
By Lily Harlem

Wow it’s here again, Blissemass! It seems to come round so fast but isn’t that the way as you get a bit older. This year it’s a quiet Christmas in the Harlem household. We’ve had the whole family to stay for the last few festive seasons but for 2015 we’re going to stay cuddled up in the warm by the fire and not worry about anything but being together. No stress over the dinner, or keeping everyone ‘topped up’ or having to play Monopoly (I can’t stand it!).


Mr H has travelled a lot lately and much as I appreciate time alone to write it is lovely when he comes home. But wow, what a year it has been for my writing. I’ve had a serial published Caught on Camera, (Part One is FREE so grab your copy of this steamy M/M today!) several novels including Dark Warrior, Breathe You In, In Expert Hands, Muscling In and Rule Breaker. There’s also been a few short stories thrown into the mix such as Going Up, Burning Rubber, Toy Boy and Spicing it Up. Not to mention anthologies including Brit Boys: On Boys and Sexy Just Got Rich. Oh, and not to forget my charity story Berets and Bras and my first ever poem (also for charity) which is included in Coming Together In Verse.

Phew, I’m tired just reading that list of books. I’ve totted up more than a million published words and this year proudly received one hundred 5* reviews for my new releases.

Xmas tree

Yes, I am definitely ready for a break. I’ll have the tree set in the window of our cottage, I adore how the lights twinkle with the darkness behind them – we have no street lights in our village so it really is very dark. Mr H had a big pile of wood to burn (he has a pyromaniac streak that needs feeding) and as usual the dog will have red tinsel around her collar on the big day.


We’re very lucky and have a wonderful village pub that is more like a communal living room with beer and wine on tap for the locals. They do pretty good food too so often people from out of the area stop by which is nice, but at Christmas, especially on Christmas day, it’s locals only stopping in for a drink and to enjoy the decorations and the fire with friends. One year it flooded (it’s right by the river) but the landlord and landlady would not miss Christmas Day opening and we stood around the bar in wellington boots enjoying festive cheer and mince pies. Dogs are usually invited inside but that year we thought they wouldn’t enjoy it so much, being as they don’t have boots to keep their paws dry LOL.


So what’s coming up in 2016 for me? I’ve got an MMF novella Heat of the Day which you can grab an early download of TODAY from Pride Publishing (general release date 16th January), a Formula One novel, Accelerated Passion, due for release in February and also a story in Brit Boys: With Toys. On top of that I have many more stories in my head that I need to get down. They range from sweet and romantic, to rude and raunchy, there’s definitely a steamy MFM novel that’s been rattling around my head lately and I think once I’ve had a relaxing festive season and Mr H heads back to the office I’ll be tapping that out as fast as my fingers can fly over the keyboard.

On that note I would like to wish Victoria and her family, all my fellow authors and lovely readers a wonderful festive season and good wishes for 2016.
