Erotic Gaze by Julie Farrell: Guest Post & Excerpt!

Erotic Gaze
A M/M Steamy Romance Novella
(London Loves Series Book 4)
by Julie Farrell

Do You Love Steamy M/M Romance?

Join Scott and Paul on this fun romp into voyeurism and passion.

Paul is a handsome entrepreneur who adores his artist husband Scott. They've always agreed to remain exclusive, but they’re starting to crave a bit more in their marriage than online porn and vanilla sex. Paul wonders what it would be like to be watched, thinking this could take their passion to a whole other level.

When Scott's favourite artist, Kate Jagger, falls for Paul, thinking he’s the man of her dreams, Scott needs to remind her that Paul belongs to him. Scott realises he can make his mark on his husband by offering Kate the chance to watch them for a one-time-only erotic performance, thus fulfilling Paul’s dreams of being watched and Kate’s dreams of watching two hot men!

Fun, romantic, and very very sexy!

*Warning: Contains explicit hot gay sex. With erotic scenes throughout, this M/M romance is for ADULTS ONLY. Read at your own risk.*
Thank you so much to Carly for allowing me to be here today!

My name’s Julie Farrell and I’m a UK-based steamy romance writer. Although I’ve been writing romance for about eight years, I’ve only been published for one year, and I’m loving it!

All the books in my London Loves Series feature a gay married couple called Scott and Paul, who met at school and went through teenage homophobic bullying together and have now come out the other side (excuse the pun!)

Life in the UK is much more liberal and equal these days, thank goodness. Scott and Paul are married and exclusive – but they’ve recently discovered the joys of voyeurism! Their next adventure, which I’m currently writing, involves them meeting a couple of younger college guys and taking them under their wing – as well as under their bed covers!

I enjoy writing all romance, but M/M has become my favourite. And my readers seem to love it too – often reviewers for my ‘hybrid’ (M/M and straight) books will comment on how much they liked Scott and Paul.

For example, one reviewer said: ‘Ms. Farrell is a fabulous writer! Her prose is easy, fluid, and totally gorgeous. All the characters are wonderful: they really come alive on the page; in fact, it doesn’t feel like a book, or fiction: it feels like I had the pleasure of being part of the life of new-found friends for a while. The sex scenes are hot, but filled with tenderness and love. A beautiful, charming, sweet and spicy; a most lovely book! Julie Farrell was a new author to me, and I’m so happy to have discovered her books!’
Thanks again to Carly for letting me guest post here today! 
What are the things you love most about M/M books?
Here’s a little sneak peek of Erotic Gaze:

Scott threw Paul a long slutty grin, then he dropped to his knees on the checkerboard tiles. Paul’s breath caught in anticipation, making his legs judder. From this angle Scott looked incredible – his toned body, blond hair, and sapphire eyes embodied everything Paul desired in a lover – he was lust-incarnate. Scott placed a strong hand on Paul’s bare thigh and leaned forward slowly – making a show of opening his mouth as he moved it towards Paul’s hard cock. Paul steadied himself on the kitchen counter, fearing that his knees might crumple beneath him with overwhelming lust.

Scott gripped his fingers around Paul’s shaft and guided it towards his lips. He sensually stuck out his tongue and licked the pre-cum that was seeping eagerly out of the slit. Scott’s tongue-piercing gently skimmed the opening as he licked it, giving Paul a flash of metallic pleasure and pain combined.

He gasped and winced. “Oh god!”
Dear Readers,
I haven't had a chance to finish Erotic Gaze yet, so my full review is pending. I'm posting early because I wanted you all to have a chance to pick up your copy while it's on sale.
So far I'm loving this story. Scott and Paul are high school sweethearts. Despite the daily challenges that life presents they are keeping the passion and love alive in their marriage.
The bedroom scenes are melt-your-kindle sexy with engaging characters and a lighthearted feel. It's fun, sexy and I'm loving every page! ~Carly

From panic to published!

I write steamy romances that will make your heart pound hard and your thighs surge with desire!

There was a time, not so long ago, when all I wanted was to stop my heart pounding hard and my mind surging with fear. You see, I suffered with panic attacks. The fear debilitated me on a daily basis, and the feelings of weakness undermined my self-esteem. This 'fear of fear' became so immense that there were times when I was scared to even go outside of my home.

At those times, all I wanted to do was write, because my imaginary world of fiction provided a soothing escape from reality. The strong female characters I created allowed me to pretend everything was okay in my world. And the sexy men in my fictive imagination were protective, loving, and strong.

But nothing in this life is ever a waste. During the years when I was suffering from panic attacks, I learnt to write well! I honed my craft, and when I came out the other end, I was ready to self-publish, knowing that if I can cope with panic attacks and survive, then I can become a successful indie author too! My books are the products of this amazing journey that I've been on, and now I can't wait to find out what other delights await me, just around the corner!

Never give up on your dreams, and don't let the setbacks of today ruin your tomorrow! You can do it - just like I did!
