A warm welcome to author Clare London joining us today on her blog tour for newest release “Romancing the Wrong Twin”, A Dreamspun Desires release.
Glamour or goosebumps? – Clare London
There’s a scene in my new book Romancing the Wrong Twin where Aidan – pretending to be his supermodel twin Zeb Z – has to do a modelling session. In underwear LOL. He finds that the job is much more than just standing around looking glamorous – and it gives him goosebumps, dressed in nothing but skimpy briefs!
I wrote this as an amusing scene rather than a description of the real hard work that models often have to do. I can only imagine what fun it is (NOT!) to be modelling swimwear in winter, thick sweaters in summer, having your face painted like a wasp, or wearing a model of the London Eye on your head (I’ve see all that in the fashion press, honest!).
That’s the joy of writing fiction – you can let your imagination run wild. You can imagine your characters as anything you like. In the book, Aidan is a playwright, his twin Zeb a model, and his love interest Dominic a gruff, burly mountaineer. This is where I confess I’ve never written a play, done any modelling, or climbed a mountain. But through the magic of research – and picking the brains of all my friends and family – I can write about those things.
Do you enjoy living different lives through fiction? What would be your favourite imagination-job?
When gruff mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George seeks sponsorship for his latest expedition, his London PA insists on a more media-friendly profile—like dating celebrity supermodel Zeb Z.
Zeb can’t make the date, so he asks his identical twin, Aidan, to stand in for just one evening. Aidan, a struggling playwright, shuns the limelight to the extent people don’t even know Zeb has a sibling, but he reluctantly agrees.
When the deception has to continue beyond the first date, Aidan fights to keep up the pretense. Dominic likes his sassy, intelligent companion, and Aidan starts falling for the forthright explorer. But how long can Aidan’s conscience cope as confusion abounds? Will coming clean as “the other twin” destroy the trust they’ve built?

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant.
She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters.
Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind… she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.
