Now Available in French!

Hi folks,

Or should I say bonjour? 😉 I’m just stopping by to let you know that my M/M military erotic romance two-in-one book, Desert Heat & Native Tongue, is now available in French, courtesy of Juno Publishing. In French, it’s called D’un terrain miné à l’autre! It’s available to purchase from Amazon, Juno’s website, and 7switch.

Here’s the yummy cover!

Here’s the blurb in French:

Dans la chaleur du désert

Leur amour est interdit par les règles, la religion et les risques impliqués. Pourtant, ils ne peuvent pas y résister.

Le capitaine Hugh Wilkes en est à son dernier déploiement en Afghanistan. L’Armée britannique se retire, et Wilkes s’attend à ce que sa mission se déroule sans incident. Enfin, jusqu’à ce qu’il rencontre son interprète afghan, Rustam Balki, qui réveille en Wilkes des désirs presque oubliés, mais qui ne peuvent pas être ignorés.

Langue maternelle

Bien que de retour sur le sol anglais, la bataille n’est pas terminée.

Lorsque le capitaine Hugh Wilkes est tombé sous le charme de son interprète afghan, Rustam Balkhi, il savait que les choses ne seraient jamais faciles.

Après des mois de secret complet, leur retour en Angleterre aurait dû marquer la fin des cachotteries et des risques insensés. Mais il semblerait qu’ils aient beaucoup d’obstacles à surmonter avant de pouvoir vraiment être heureux ensemble.

Peuvent-ils dépasser ces obstacles ou cette bataille est-elle de trop pour leur relation naissante ?

Desert Heat & Native Tongue Now Available in Audio Format! #gay #romance #audiobook

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to announce that Desert Heat & Native Tongue are now also available in audiobook format, narrated by the amazing Joel Leslie! This is a new thing for me, so I’m really excited to see how it goes. I actually had a discussion over the weekend with someone about audiobooks, who pointed out that as well as being great for people when they’re commuting, they’re good for the visually impaired and people with dyslexia. I admit I hadn’t even thought of that side of things before, so I’m pleased to be potentially widening my market in this way. I’m in talks with various narrators to get more of my books made available in audio. It’s quite a long process, but do watch this space!

native-desert_audio_for_webBlurb:

Desert Heat:

Their love is forbidden by rules, religion and risk. Yet still they can’t resist.

Captain Hugh Wilkes is on his last tour of duty in Afghanistan. The British Army is withdrawing, and Wilkes expects his posting to be event-free. That is, until he meets his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, who awakens desires in Wilkes that he’d almost forgotten about, and that won’t be ignored.

Native Tongue:

They may be back on British soil, but the battle isn’t over.

When Captain Hugh Wilkes fell for his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, he always knew things would never be easy. After months of complete secrecy, their return to England should have spelt an end to the sneaking around and the insane risks. But it seems there are many obstacles for them to overcome before they can truly be happy together. Can they get past those obstacles, or is this one battle too many for their fledgling relationship?

Acceptance of Interracial Relationships

In Desert Heat and Native Tongue, my characters, Hugh Wilkes and Rustam Balkhi have several hurdles to leap. One of them, which is pretty damn high, is the fact that Balkhi is Muslim. It’s not a problem between the two of them—after all, Wilkes’ army career means he’s had lots of dealings with Muslims and is perfectly happy and comfortable in their company—but more an issue with other people.

Part of the story in Desert Heat is the reaction of some Muslim extremists to their countrymen acting as translators for the British Army. They don’t agree with helping the “infidels” and have been known to act violently—or worse—towards those that do. This is a very real worry for Balkhi, who has been working with the army for a while now, and knows he must consider whether it is safe for him to return to his home village and his family or not, or whether he’s putting himself and his relatives in danger.

Another thing that would certainly displease the extremists is the fact of Balkhi’s sexuality. Throughout the course of his and Wilkes’ story, something happens which reminds him how precarious his situation already is, and cements for him the fact that he will, for the time being at least, have to keep away from his family, and certainly not let them know he is gay. It’s hard for him, but he’s a practical man and knows it’s best for all concerned.

Wilkes, on the other hand, has a very open-minded family. They don’t yet know he’s gay, but although he’s pretty sure it won’t be an issue, the one thing he is sure of is that his family won’t have the slightest problem having an Afghan Muslim in their home. It may be a double whammy—discovering Wilkes is gay and dating someone of a different culture—but he’s grateful to know that at least he can still be safe in his childhood home with his family, unlike Balkhi.

Acceptance is something that varies from person to person, and while it’s a shame that Balkhi has such a tough time of it, it was important to me for the story to reflect real life situations.

Thank you so much for reading.

Happy Reading,

Lucy x
