Product Description

Product Description

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?

Author’s note: Although this story does work as a standalone tale, it’s recommended that you read the first instalment of the characters’ journey first—Desert Heat, which is available from all good retailers.

Native Tongue by Lucy Felthouse
Yeah so much better now I know what has happened between Hugh and Rustam. Now that they are back on British soil they can find out where this relationship will go. The one bad thing is that they have to keep it private because of Hugh. These two have a great relationship and it is so sad that they can’t come out in public and acknowledge their love for one another quite yet but once they do, oh man! I did giggle a little when Hugh gets together with his family. You are going to love his talk with his mom. Priceless! This was a perfect ending for Hugh and Rustam or is it? You just never know what Lucy is going to do.. I received this book as a gift from the author in return for an honest review.

What a great book! "Naitive Tongue" is the sequel to "Desert Heat" (which I loved), and I was certainly not disappointed.
Captain Hugh Wilkes is back, along with Rustam Balkhi, his interpreter from Afghanistan. This time, they're at home in the UK, and now have the chance to further explore the love they discovered there. Sure, there are some hurdles, the main one being that they don't live close to each other, and Hugh must drive quite a distance to visit Rustam. However, not having to hide their relationship makes it worth it. Hugh DOES have a couple of issues. He's got to come out at work and to his family.

My boys (as I lovingly refer to them) are amazing! They're strong, sweet, and sexy. Their chemistry is perfect, and they leave me with such a warm feeling...with their love for each other, AND their total hotness! Seriously, the sex scenes are delicious. In fact, a major part of the story was at the beginning, which was when they first see each other after quite a bit of time apart. WHOA! Lucy Felthouse's descriptions are so detailed that I felt like I was actually watching them make love, and make no mistake, it was making love.

I should also put in a few good words for the background characters here. Hugh and Rustam meet up with a couple of cool guys while they're having their first outing as a couple. It was fun watching them interact. Hugh's family is adorable. Their love for their son, and their acceptance of Rustam and their relationship is refreshing. Captain Tom Wilkes is another good one. He's a colleague of Hugh's, and the first that he comes out to. Once again, the acceptance is heartwarming.

Even though this is a sequel, it could stand by itself. I really do recommend that you check out "Desert Heat" before you read it. That way, you'll be more invested in Hugh and Rustam. Trust me when I tell you that you won't be sorry.

HASH(0xa1e12bc4) out of 5 stars Love this book May 12 2015
By LBAS Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Can I just start by saying that I freaking loved this book. After reading Desert Heat I was hoping that the author would write a follow up story and show what happened after Hugh Wilkes and Rustam Balkhi left Afghanistan. And this story didn't disappoint.

To start with this story is simple when you break it down. There was no big drama or revelation. The characters have already met and they've survived the difficulties of have a forbidden relationship in the middle of a war zone. So things should get easier for them, right? Wrong.

In the simplicity of the story also lay its complexities. Now that the excitement of a forbidden relationship is over and the two can actually see each other without worrying about being found out, how are they going to cope with the mundane everyday activities of having a relationship? How are two characters who have never been 'out' to their friends and families going to clue the people they love in? And even more basic, do they even want to carry on a relationship? These are the things that drive the internal conflicts of the story and moved the story to a different level.

On a character level it was great to see the growth in Wilkes as a character. I liked him in Desert Heat, although I felt some of his observations about Afghanistan and its people bordered on prejudice. But it was refreshing to see how his perspective about the country and its people had changed in Native Tongue. I guess falling in love with an Afghan will do that to a man. LOL

Seriously though, Wilkes came into his own in this story and I loved him for it. It was great to see his dominant side come out to play in his interactions with Balkhi. I mean he was a natural top in Desert Heat but I felt as if Balkhi had to push him before he could let go. But in this story, he took charge of his life and relationship. It showed in the passion that exploded whenever the two of them were together.

All in all, this is a fantastic story that brings the story of these two characters to a wonderful happy ever after. If you haven't read Desert Heat, you've just got to, especially since you can buy both books in a boxset. For sure, this is my favourite book from this author.

HASH(0xa1c86e4c) out of 5 stars The boys are back! May 12 2015
By Maud Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In this follow up to Desert Heat we find that as the Brits have left Afghanistan, Hugh is back on Camp in Wiltshire and Rustam is finally finishing up his medical training in London.

Due to circumstances beyond their control they have not seen each other for weeks - and after spending months literally in each others pockets it is hard on them both.

Finally, Hugh gets time off to go visit with Rustam - but things are a wee bit awkward. How do you go from sneaking around and hurried trysts to actually getting to know one another without constantly looking over your shoulder to see who is watching? How can they finally become a 'real' couple?

I am really pleased that Lucy has given us this follow up, it's like meeting up with old friends. Native Tongue could be read as a Standalone but why deny yourself the pleasure of meeting the boys first hand in Desert Heat.

I was lucky enough to be asked to Beta read this book and I cannot thank Lucy enough for the opportunity.

HASH(0xa1e0ac24) out of 5 stars 4.5 stars for this happy sequel May 12 2015
By V. Rundell of V's Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second book in a series; it is best read in sequence.

Hugh Wilkes is home for Afghanistan and looking forward to reconnecting with his lover/translator Rustam Balkhi--an Afghan native who has returned to London to continue his medical schooling. These two had an illicit relationship while stationed together at a British base camp, but, in England, they have the opportunity to be out and proud with each other.

Over the course of a few weeks, they meet on weekends and practice being out together in public. It is a big adjustment to come out of the closet. They have lots of sexytimes and some small misadventures, but they tackle them together--not least of which is Hugh coming out to his family.

There is some mild angst, but the book is short and the pace is brisk. The bulk of the book is highly positive, with a story centered on two men building a positive, loving relationship. It is sweet and tender, with a good dash of heat.
