A Taste of London By: Lucy Felthouse

Penning Male Fantasies by Lucy Felthouse

When I saw that Ellora's Cave had launched a range of books aimed specifically at men, I jumped at the chance of writing for it. Previously, I'd written books aimed at men, as well as many stories that were pure erotica, rather than erotic romance. EC For Men doesn't say there can't be any romance, just that the stories should be written from the male perspective and should focus on male fantasy.

I brainstormed for a while before coming up with something. But what I did come up with gave me the basis for an entire series, not just one book, so I was rather pleased. When I was writing book one, A Taste of London, I had to keep in mind what men would act like and say, as well as what kind of sexual fantasies go through their minds. It wasn't easy, but it was a great deal of fun. When my character got laid for the third time in a day I asked myself if it was realistic—then I remembered something. A) it's fiction and B) it's aimed at men and their fantasies, and many men would like to have sex thirty times a day, never mind three C) it's not completely impossible for someone to have sex with three different people in a day. Especially if they look like my lead character, Ryan. He's hot.

So it stayed as it was, and I sent Ryan Stonebridge on a whirlwind sexual adventure on London, before plonking him on a Eurostar to Paris. Which is where his kinky adventures will continue. I'm writing the second book as we speak, so watch this space...


Ryan Stonebridge and his friend Kristian Hurst are heading off on the trip of a lifetime. They’re spending their gap year traveling the world and expect lots of sun, sights and sex. The guys have a couple of days in the English capital before catching the Eurostar to Paris. Unfortunately, a family emergency means that Kristian has to head back home for a while, leaving Ryan to continue the trip alone.

Luckily for Ryan, he’s an attractive guy and there is no shortage of gorgeous women available to help take his mind off Kristian’s family drama.

  1. I admire your courage in writing erotic romance from the male POV! However, I can't help wondering how old your character is. :) Three times a day? He must be in his early 20s or younger to keep that up for more than a day or 2.
