Back cover information

Okay, so I eat, sleep and breathe football and reporting the beautiful game is my dream career. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have time for a major crush on the England captain, Lewis Tate. The bloke is sex on legs, hot with a capital H. Add in his awe-inspiring talent, his brooding good looks and what’s not to lust after? 

So my excitement is sky-high as I set off with the official press team to cover England’s battle for the European Cup. But when a series of unfortunate, or as it turns out fortunate events, attracts Tate’s attention my way, who am I to say no? 

Add in a misogynistic manager, an over-zealous colleague, two blue silk ties and some incredible ball-handling skills and it becomes clear the road to victory, for me, will be an intensely erotic journey. Determined to savor every moment, I hang onto my sanity as best I can while living the fantasy and wondering if it can ever become reality. Because once Lewis Tate has taken me to heaven and back, its clear no one else will ever compare. 



The doors opened and the chlorinated air from the pool seeped in. But that barely registered in my mind, because standing in red trunks with a white towel slung around his neck was Lewis. His wet hair was mussed up and his skin dewy and damp. Fuck, the guy just got more gorgeous every time I saw him. It wasn’t a case of getting used to his stunning looks, they just bowled me over anew.
“Hello, Nicky,” he said, stepping in next to me.
“Hi.” Seriously, how could he act so cool? How could I be expected to act cool when he looked like every dirty dream and carnal fantasy rolled into one?
The doors slid shut and I pressed the button for level three. “I presume you’re going to your room and not to the lobby dressed like that?”
“Yep.”
I glanced up at him. He was gnawing at the inside of his cheek. His shoulders were raised and tense and he was staring straight at me with a sharp glint in his eye.
“Great game, congratulations.”
“Thank you.” His words were short and clipped.
“What?” I asked, feeling unaccountably off-kilter. Was he angry with me? What had I done? I hadn’t told anyone he’d been in my room for tea. I hadn’t even told anyone we’d ever spoken outside of the press conferences.
“You told me...” he said, “that...”
Okay, now I was really nervous. His eyes were thin slits; I could only just make out that perfect shade of deep-ocean blue through his lashes. “What did I tell you?”
“That you weren’t seeing anyone.”
“I’m not.”
He stepped toward me, big and brooding. His sudden indomitable expression was more than a little disturbing.
I backed up and my shoulders hit the cool mirrored wall.
He followed, penning me in. He was all acres of perfect flesh, toned muscles and steely determination. My stomach somersaulted, my heart rate rocketed and I gripped the brass bar that lined the elevator. I’d never felt so physically small in my life.
“So who was the guy who thought it was okay to wrap his arms around you at the press conference?”
“That was just Phil.” My voice was a little squeaky, but I wasn’t complaining, I was surprised I could even speak. Why the hell would Phil matter to Lewis?
“Just Phil?”
I nodded. “Yes, just Phil.” I could smell Lewis now, a combination of chlorine, soap and raw maleness. As he spoke his sweet breath breezed warm onto my cheek and sent a sizzle of awareness shooting down my middle, tickling my nipples and creating a buzz in my clitoris. This man did seriously dangerous things to my body, like letting it think it was in charge of my brain.
“So he’s not your boyfriend?”
“No, definitely not. Phil is a work colleague who gets a bit flirty now and then. But I hardly know him really.”
I wasn’t sure if I’d said the right thing because a small muscle flexed and un-flexed in Lewis’ cheek and his nostrils flared.
“Really, there’s nothing between us,” I said. “I’m free as a bird, no one to answer to, no one to—”
“Stop talking.” He glanced at the elevator dashboard then turned his attention back to me.
“Why.”
“Because I want to test a theory.” He nipped my chin between his thumb and index finger, tilted my head and dropped his face until his lips were just a hair’s-breadth from mine.
“What theory would that be?” I whispered, wondering if my knees would continue to hold me up for more than another few seconds. Damn, he was so close. I felt completely consumed by him.
“The kiss-and-tell theory.”
“Oh, well I—”
My words were cut short as his mouth connected with mine. Smooth, pliant lips and a softly probing tongue taking possession, owning and controlling.
A small whimper mewed up from my throat. Fuck. Lewis Tate was kissing me. And not only that he was one hell of a kisser. Gentle but firm, and he tasted delicious; fresh and sexy and perhaps a tang of mint.
I opened up and let him in. Searched for his tongue with mine and allowed him to set the pace and depth. Surely I was in the middle of a fantastic dream. How had I got so lucky to have such an incredible man kissing me?
He kept a tight hold of my chin as he pulled away. “You’re so sweet,” he murmured, his downcast gaze searching my face. “So please don’t prove my instincts wrong.”
“What instincts?” I was struggling to catch my breath, control the tremble in my belly.
There was a sudden ping, the elevator jolted to a stop, and the doors slid open.
Lewis backed up rapidly, gripped the ends of the towel that was still around his neck, and squared his stance.
A waiter holding an ice bucket stared in at us.
“Good evening,” Lewis said, stepping past him.

Sexy Me Down ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #MSS90



Welcome to My Sexy Saturday! This weeks' theme is gambling and taking risks and Toy Boy fits this perfectly as both hero and heroine have taken a gamble when they book a holiday together without ever having met! 



Toy Boy is a MF cougar story and available from Totally Bound NOW - general release not until 2nd of June!

Here's a snippet from when the couple first meet, Kay is shocked that Sullivan lied about his age and it's not until they meet in beautiful Greece, all alone, on a boat, that she finds out the truth. Trouble is, he's not one to give in without a fight!



He reached out and took my face in his hands. “Please,” he whispered. “Believe me.”
Twilight had both etched his features in shadows and highlighted his cheekbones. He was so handsome, beautiful in fact.
“No,” I whispered, regret tugging at my heartstrings.
He licked his lips with the tip of his tongue and left a gentle sheen on them.
His lower lip was slightly larger than the top one and had a tiny, barely visible dent in the center. I wondered what it would be like to kiss him. He’d taste of wine and the sweet bread we’d eaten, no doubt, and that bottom lip of his, it looked so soft and pliant.
He’d told me on the phone once that he wanted to kiss me for hours. He’d said he’d hated the distance, the miles between us, when all he’d wanted to do was kiss my mouth, my neck, the small space behind my ear and my hairline. Then lower, he’d said, my cleavage, my breasts.
“I want to suck your nipples until you beg me to go lower. And after you’ve begged, for a while, I will go lower. I’ll wind my tongue through your most sensitive folds, exploring, playing. I’ll find out what makes you pant for more and what makes you pull on my hair and trap my shoulders with your legs, keeping me there, buried in your pussy. I’ll learn how to make you come with just my tongue, Kay, and you’ll love it.”
Fuck.
I sat back.
He dropped his hands. “What?”
“It’s just…”
“I know,” he said, “you’re just not attracted to me, right?”
I shook my head. “No, it’s not that.” What a stupid thing to say. Who the hell in their right mind wouldn’t be attracted to Sullivan?


Getting something unexpected can be a shock, but it can also be a wonderful treat, if you allow yourself to indulge, that is.

Kay is bubbling with excitement. She’s booked a sailing holiday of a lifetime in Greece with a man she’s fallen for hook, line and sinker. They met on the Internet. She’s from Oxford, he’s from Washington State. She’s a business lecturer, he runs his own successful business.

They’re perfect for each other, and she can’t wait to meet him and spend time in and out of his bed, allowing him to seduce her for real and not just with softly spoken words over the telephone.

But when she arrives in the idyllic port of Fiscardo, she’s in for a shock. There’s a reason Sullivan’s photographs were grainy, and it’s not because he’s sporting a potbelly or balding as she’d suspected. It’s because he’s over a decade younger than her and could rival any Greek god in the looks department. What’s more, his sex appeal and lust for her is off the scale.

Should Kay take what she can with her ‘toy boy’ and have some fun in the sun or hop on the first plane back to England? It’s a tricky decision for a woman who believed she couldn’t be surprised by life anymore. 



First reviews...

"Simply a beautiful, sexy, smile-inducing story that you will want to read over and over."

"An absolutely perfect book to read whilst pool side or lounging on a sun deck."

Stockholm Surrender - IN PRINT


Stockholm Surrender is now available in print as well as ebook!

Also on Amazon/ Amazon UK

Back cover information

By popular reader request, the full-length story of what happens after Stockholm Seduction (included as the prologue).

My soul was in turmoil. Ty Winters had not only kidnapped me in Oz, my heartstoppingly gorgeous surfer had also stoked my darkest desires, bringing all my fantasies to the surface. So Oxford wasn’t going well. Until, that is, he creeped from the shadows—desperate, sexy, dangerous and wanting a piece of me, literally!

He teased me with a taste of his carnal skills, leaving me burning with frustration then forced to stand by as he fought for his beliefs using my lust-addled body as his most powerful weapon.

Oh, my kidnapper knew just how to get what he wanted, giving me just what I needed, while hiding our relationship from the British foreign minister and police. Because sometimes two people are meant to be, even in the most unconventional circumstances and twisted situations. We could fight the world, but we couldn’t fight our passion.


And to celebrate I'm giving away a paperback copy of Stockholm Surrender on my personal Facebook page - click here - and if you want to 'friend me' feel free to send a request :-)

Dark Warrior Reviews



I'm completely thrilled that Dark Warrior has been getting awesome 5* reviews including this one from industry review site GGR-Review.




Scott’s Review:

This isn’t your typical romance, the setting is different, the culture is different, and the characters are different. The setting is the Village of Cagaha Buurta in remote Kenya. The Culture is something I’ve only seen on the television, where multi generations of families live is huts, where meals are made over open fire and the water supply is from a well. The characters; Leo is a Doctor from London who works with Medics on Hand and has come to Kenya for a Month to work in the village clinic and Malik is from the Village having returned after 10 years away in Nairobi where he was trained as a Nurse. Leo and Malik are also Bi Racial, and I appreciated the diversity.

The story is diverse in it’s story as it is with it’s characters. The author did an exceptional job of using the beauty of the area alongside the ruggedness of life. It made me appreciate a culture that doesn’t have the conveniences that so many of us take for granted, yet these people were truly happy. I still cannot get over how the words used by Lily entrenched me so much in the story, it was as if I was able to feel the ruddiness of the environment and smell the decaying chicken (part of the story). I didn’t need to picture in my head what I thought it was like, all I had to do was read the words and the story did it for me. Absolutely Brilliant!

Leo and Malik are so good together, they fit. The chemistry between them is unmistakable as they struggle to be together but not. In a time and place where you could be stoned in the village square for lying with another man Leo and Malik must take those snippets in time to show how they feel. Their coming together was amazing. It was so damn realistic it was 2 mature men getting together, the sex was great.  Something I felt so important, even though they were lovers I got the feeling that they were also friends. It was through how comfortable they were with each other when left to relax and be themselves, unencumbered by villagers and just left to be themselves.

I cannot recommend this book enough, Lily Harlem continues to amaze me with her writing style and stories.


Buy your copy from Totally Bound and get a bonus sexy scene. Also available from all other good book retailers in both ebook and paperback.
