Day 10: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

Nikki drew a winner for Day 9 and it’s…Susan W! Yay! Congrats, Susan! I’ll be emailing you tonight with some info.

Now, for this Monday morning, Day 10 of the 30 Days of Christmas, I have more MM authors for you and you are just gonna love this! Missy Welsh and Cat Grant with holiday releases plus a lil something from me. ;)

Missy Welsh – An Angel Gets His Wings

BUY LINK

Will closeted Mike make it through this year’s family Christmas without succumbing to the innocent charms of his long-lost “cousin” George?

Mike Sharp is in Little Rock, Arkansas, visiting his family for Christmas while his best friend Brian Bailey’s up north walking right into Mike’s plans to hook him up with his neighbor Trent. Unfortunately, it seems like someone’s conspiring to get Mike panting after his third cousin, twice removed (or something like that) named George Whitlock. George who keeps sneaking up on him, being all shy and cute, and then having the audacity to give Mike great big calf eyes that are just begging Mike to drop to his knees. Mike will not give in because, if he does, he could lose his entire family when they discover he’s gay.

Cat Grant – Fearless

BUY LINK

How can you plan for the future when escaping the past seems impossible?

After over a year together, Connor Morrison and Wes Martin decide to tie the knot. But an ethics complaint regarding their deeply non-traditional relationship threatens Connor’s job and Wes’s Ph.D. The fact that Connor tried to keep it from Wes—even with the best of intentions—makes the situation even worse and casts a pall over their plans for a Christmas wedding in New York.

It doesn’t help that Connor still treats Wes like glass, though Wes insists he’s recovered from the brutal assault he suffered a year and a half earlier. Wes may be okay, but Connor isn’t. Memories of taking a battered, terrified Wes to the emergency room that night still haunt him, and he can’t let go of the need to protect Wes from any and everything life might throw at him.

But Wes has had enough. Between the specter of the ethics complaint and Connor’s overprotectiveness, he’s already beginning to question their plans. Add in a family ashamed of and angered by his choices, and Wes might just leave Connor standing at the altar.

Lex Valentine – Afterburner, Breath of Heaven

Afterburner – BUY LINK

Sebastian “Bas” Marchetti has spent his life doing two things, hiding his sexuality and flying. Born into an aerobatic family, Bas learned to fly long before he could drive. After a stellar career in the military that encompassed a turn as a U.S.A.F. Thunderbird and a test pilot, Bas leaves the service when his father dies in order to take over operations of the Flying Marchettis. Fully out of the closet and unwilling to return to it, Bas struggles with the demons of his past military career when he meets test pilot Ryder “Flip” Beckett. Together, Ryder and Bas find a love that neither is willing to give up. With Ryder living the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, they struggle to have a normal relationship. Bas loves Ryder enough to be his dirty little secret. However, that’s not enough for Ryder who loves his man so much he’ll risk court martial to be with Bas.

Breath of Heaven – BUY LINK, TRAILER

Sebastian Marchetti and his husband Ryder Beckett are flying high since their retirement from the Air Force. They’re still young, still hot for each other and enjoying life as a married couple and members of the Flying Marchettis aerobatic team. When tragedy strikes their extended family, the couple become parents overnight and the demons of Ryder’s past return with a vengeance. With the Marchettis and the entire town of Forza pitching in to help, Bas and Ryder strive to make Christmas unforgettable for a special little boy and his newborn brother while laying to rest past and present pain.

I have a third Bas and Ryder book in the works. NASA wants Ryder and a man from Ryder’s past wants Bas. Oh, and speaking of stuff I have in the works, I have a Christmas story I’m working feverishing to finish in time for the holiday. The one with no name. Well, it has a name now. AND it has a cover. What do you think?

The sad man on the left is my broken dom Kellen and the tied up man on the right is my broken sub Haven. I’m about at the halfway point so wish me luck in finishing on time! BTW, the Breath of Heaven cover is my work too. I love Christmas covers!

Okay, so here’s the rules again, leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time tonight and tomorrow my family will pick a winner for the four books listed here. Great new holiday stories from my pals and two hot stories from me! Happy Holidays!

    Please put my name in the hat so tp speak. So who came up with Broken Bonds?

    • Winter/Lex says:

      I did, Cyn. When push came to shove and I had to do the cover, that’s what screamed out at me. The only thing it really doesn’t touch on is Christmas, but otherwise it really suits the story.
