M/M Military Erotic Romance
When lonely insurance broker, Bailey, gets himself a new hobby, he ends up exchanging letters with a war zone. But he’s not expecting what happens next…
Bailey Hodgkiss is lonely and dissatisfied with his boring life as an insurance broker. In an attempt to insert some variety, he signs up to a website to write to serving soldiers. He’s put in touch with Corporal Nick Rock, and over the course of a couple of letters, the two of them strike up a friendship. They begin to divulge their secrets, including their preference for men.
Nick encourages Bailey to add more interests to his life. As a result, Bailey picks up his forgotten hobby, photography, and quickly decides to team it up with his other preferred interest, travel.
Booking a holiday to Rome is his biggest gesture towards a more exciting existence, and he eagerly looks forward to the trip. That is, until Nick says he’s coming home on leave, and it looks as though their respective trips will prevent them from meeting in person. Is there enough of a spark between them to push them to meet, or will their relationship remain on paper only?

“Lucy Felthouse did a fantastic job of creating a story line that was so heartfelt. I loved her characters, Bailey and Nick… Felthouse did a wonderful job of allowing their feelings for life and even love, to develop quickly. Sometimes you just click with someone. I loved this story and wish that I knew how Rome went.” 5 out of 5, Inked Rainbow Reads
“…sizzling hot. One man into soldiers and another man making love to him with his full uniform on are very hot indeed, great fantasy material for those of you into uniforms. All in all, I can recommend this book as a short hot little read.” 4 out of 5, Mrs Condit Reads Books
“While there is a love scene at the end, the focus of this story is on the development of their relationship. By the end, you are invested in the characters enough to want them to have a happy ending. I’m hoping to see more of these characters, perhaps in another instalment and hopefully from Nick’s POV. An enjoyable short story that left me wanting more.” 4 out of 5, Love Bites and Silk Ties
