A Heavenly Day Spent with Chocolate

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago, I spent a day combining two of my very favourite things. No, not Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch (puts on bucket list). The Peak District in Derbyshire, England, and chocolate. I went to a place called Cocoadance, which is on a National Trust farm on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Castleton, which sits on the border of the White Peak and the Dark Peak. It’s a haven for outdoorsy folk, and, apparently, chocolate lovers.

Cocoadance has been going for almost twenty years, and as well as making chocolate for the likes of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, they also run workshops for the public to go and attend. You have to pay, naturally, but you get a thorough education, lots of tasting and a whole pile of chocolate to take home with you. What could be better?

lucyblindfoldIt was indeed a fantastic day. We started out by settling in, meeting the guy who runs the workshops, Dave, and generally chatting until everyone turned up. We were only allowed to drink water to start with, as we had to keep our palates clean ready for the tasting session. After donning aprons and name badges, it was time to start.

Dave talked us through the invention of chocolate, how it’s made, how it’s sourced, and so on. Then the reason for the blindfolds on the tables became clear. Having been reassured there was nothing untoward going on – there were children there, after all! – we reluctantly donned our masks as Dave pressed chocolates he’d made into our palms. We were then to eat them and try and guess things like how much cocoa powder was in them, how many cocoa solids, any other tastes, and so on. It was interesting to see what other people came up with – and I learned a whole new appreciation for milk chocolate after being given a couple of seriously bitter pieces of dark chocolate. It’s certainly an acquired taste!

Next, it was onto making our own. We donned very sexy hairnets. First of all we made chocolates in moulds – we could use white, milk or dark chocolate (or a combination), along with various other things like sprinkles, Smarties, marshmallows and more. Cue lots of giggling and mess, and a whole bunch of noise as we were encouraged to bang our moulds on the surfaces to remove any air bubbles.

creationsAfter that, we were given trays with greaseproof paper and told to go nuts. Basically, the faster we made things, the more we’d have to take home with us. At one point, my hands were entirely covered with chocolate due to a poorly made piping bag! But I did, in fact, fill my tray with a mad combination of swirls, buttons, flowers, a rubbish drawing of Scamp, a book, a pen, my name, dipped marshmallows, and lots more. I kept mine fairly simple, using sprinkles and a combination of white and milk chocolate – no dark chocolate for me.

The trays were then stacked on a rack to set, and we grabbed our moulds from the fridge to see how they’d turned out. Cue more banging on the table to get the little chocolates out. Some of mine turned out better than others – apparently I should have banged on the table more, but my poor sensitive ears couldn’t take it! However, it didn’t affect the taste one bit – they were delicious.

We then started boxing our creations up. Dave generously told us to help ourselves to any of the chocolates he’d pre-made before the session for us to taste, so I ended up with several pieces of chocolate looking much more professional than mine! Adding our tray-made chocolates into bags (the box was long since full!) and washing up, removing our hair nets and aprons, lots of very happy chocolate lovers headed back out into the Peak District and onward with their goodies, along with lots of sarcastic comments about the chocolates not managing to survive the journey home!

After a delicious meal in a nearby pub, we headed home, exhausted but happy. If you can get to the Peak District and this sounds like your kind of thing, I’d definitely recommend it. It was so much fun!

Lesbians, Chocolate and Smut in Italy

Hi everyone,

Well now, that caught your attention, didn’t it? That was my intention. 😉

It’s not just a random title aimed at catching your eye, though. It’s utterly relevant to my blog post, honest.

Okay, here goes…

The lesbians and chocolate bit refers to a new mini-anthology I’m part of – It’s A Girl Thing from House of Erotica. It contains my story, Dip it Low, which is indeed about lesbians and chocolate. And that’s all I’m saying 😉 It also contains Sapphic sexiness from Kev ‘Mitnik’ Blisse, Olivia London, Scarlett Knight and V.C.

Here’s the blurb for my story:

Jane is a waitress, and has been left cleaning up the mess after a high-society party in a stately home. She’s still not done when her girlfriend, Shelley, turns up to drive her home. Inviting her girlfriend in to wait, she’s happy to receive the offer of Shelley’s help tidying up. However, it seems Shelley’s in a mischievous mood, and when she spots the chocolate fountain in the middle of the banqueting table, their dull task quickly turns into sexy fun.

Want to read it? Head here for an excerpt and buy links.

Okay, as for the smut in Italy bit, well, that refers to the fact that I’ve had a release date for the third book in the A Taste of… series. A Taste of Rome will be released on the 14th March. Woohoo!

Here’s the skinny:

Ryan Stonebridge and his friend Kristian Hurst have travelled to London and Paris on their “gap year” adventure, before starting university. Now it’s on to Rome.

The American girls they met in Paris are along for the ride, providing lots of sexy fun for the boys. But as no one in the foursome is looking for commitment, there’s still plenty of scope for hooking up with the locals. Voyeurism, cougars, risky outdoor sex and threesomes abound in the Italian leg of the boys’ European adventure.

You can read an excerpt here: https://lucyfelthouse.co.uk/published-works/a-taste-of-rome/

Add it to your Goodreads shelves: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18399288-a-taste-of-rome

Catch up on the first two instalments of the series here and here.

Happy Reading!

Hump Day Hook No. 18 #HDH

humpdayhookHi everyone and welcome to Hump Day Hook, which is basically where authors post a paragraph from a WIP or a published work to show it off to the world. This week, I’m sharing a snippet from my story, Not Just Desserts, which appears in the fabulous Smut for Chocoholics anthology.

Hilary left the pub feeling downcast. It was the second time she’d been in that week—dressed to the nines—and still he’d barely noticed her. Aside from cleaning her table when all the waiting-on staff were busy, and saying “Thanks! Good night” as she left, he’d paid her little attention. It was clear that her tight clothes, bold eye contact and wicked smiles were not getting through to him. Despite her best efforts, he still saw her as just another customer. It spoke volumes for his commendable professional attitude, but showed that his sex radar was way off. She’d been making it blatantly obvious she fancied him for months, and yet… nothing.

Want more? Of course you do! Here’s the page  for Smut for Chocoholics. And click here to go and visit the rest of the Hump Day Hook gang. Leave us comments about our pieces – we love it! 🙂

Sunday Snog – Not Just Desserts

Sunday Snog

Smut for ChocoholicsHere’s a snog-tastic snippet from my latest release, Not Just Desserts, which appears in Smut for Chocoholicsedited by Kevin Mitnik.

When he came back in, there was a mischievous glint in his eyes. He closed the door behind him. “We’re alone. So, what were you saying about not wasting any more time?”

 

The bubble of lust expanded further, and spurred her on. Out of her seat, across the room and into his arms. She pressed him against the door, wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down for a kiss. He responded immediately, pulling her harder against his body, her curves moulding against his hard torso—and harder cock. Their kiss deepened. Stephen parted his sinful lips and his tongue tried for entry to her mouth. She allowed it in, almost swooning in his embrace as he possessed her lips, her mouth, her tongue. Her bubble burst, and her knickers quickly became drenched. All this, just from a kiss. She suspected the months of lusting after him had probably added to her arousal—the fact that she was finally, finally, getting what she wanted.

 

Except she wasn’t. The kiss was delightful and all, but what she really wanted was his tongue in her mouth and his cock in her pussy. She pulled away.

 

“Mmm,” he said, grinding his crotch against hers. “You taste of chocolate.”

 

She grinned. “I should think I bloody well do.”

 

“We’ll have to share one of those some time. It looked good.”

 

“Mmm—hmm. But I can think of something I’d rather share, right now.”

 

“Yeah?”

 

“Yeah.” She slipped her hand between their bodies and cupped his crotch. She sucked in a breath as she felt the heft of his cock. She suspected it would do very nicely… and then some.
