Day 1: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013


I’m baaack! Yes, I know I haven’t been around. I haven’t had time for blogging in the last year, but I would not forgo my commitment to my annual holiday giveaway. Therefore, I’m back! This time with a wild line up of great books from every genre, every heat level, every pairing and a multitude of amazing authors. You can expect to find books from my dearest pals as well as books from new authors and authors for whom I was cover artist. It’s going to be an exciting ride! Keep reading and at the bottom, I’ll tell you can win all three of these great books!

Today, I’m starting out with, as usual, a book of mine plus a book from two friends, one of whom I’ve done covers for. Let’s kick this party off with an MM day!

This book has a story behind it. Originally, it was with a now defunct publisher. Originally, it was MF. Or was it? My original concept for this book was MM but the publisher didn’t want it as MM so I rewrote the synopsis and then wrote the book as MF. And I was very unhappy with it. I liked my original concept better. When I got my rights back I ruthlessly chopped out chunks of the books, rewrote everything and made this what it was meant to be all along. NOW, I’m happy with it!


Sunday’s Child by Lex Valentine




Bi-sexual wizard Randall Wise is the quintessential good guy. Still single at thirty, he’s never had a relationship or even a brush with love. Rand is convinced that good guys finish last at love and decides he needs to change if he’s ever going to find a mate of his own. Then he looks out his bedroom window to find that the sexiest guy he’s ever laid eyes on has moved in next door.

Brendan Thorne is gay, klutzy, and to his thinking, ordinary. At twenty-six, he’s got a baby face that makes men treat him as they would an innocent little brother. Determined to at least get laid, Brendan sexes up his appearance and finds his hot new neighbor ready and willing to do the dirty with him. The sex is amazing and both Rand and Brendan sense it’s the start of something more. But is it real love or just magic?

Next up is a book I did the cover for. Actually, other than the first cover, I’ve done all the covers in this great series. This cover also contains a secret…the word BOY is in my handwriting! Yes, I used the Lex Valentine font on the cover! My pal AC Katt is offering up a copy of Cisco’s Boy, the third book in the Indiscreet series. You’ll love this book as all the prior characters are back and we get to see a former secondary character get his HEA.

Master Cisco de Loria wants everything from his new sub Greg Harris, that is everything but love, in fact his contract expressly forbids it.

Dr. Greg Harris finally has the money to buy a submissive membership at Indiscreet, a gay BDSM club. The only thing he wants is to have Dr. Cisco de Loria as his Master. Cisco wants Greg too, but the one thing Greg most wants to give, Cisco refuses to take, Greg’s love. Cisco is so sure he doesn’t need love that he puts it in as a clause in their contract. If Greg ever mentions love, the contract is terminated. Cisco finds out the hard way that things somehow don’t always work out the way you plan.

The third book in today’s giveaway is one of my all time favorite reads by one of my all time favorite MM authors. My pal Willa Okati has crafted an amazing story of love and discovery in Lovers, Dreamers and Me. I loved this book so much, I’ve been begging Willa for a sequel by giving secondary character Joey his story.

Tolliver’s buried his life in taking care of his sister and the independent bookstore his grandmother left him. That doesn’t leave much time for romance or fun. Sarah, his sister, thinks he’s getting hidebound and decides to do a little matchmaking. Only the first problem with which is that her choice is another man, and Tolliver’s not gay!

It turns out, Noble’s not either. But he is attracted to Tolliver, deeply, and as a seer, he knows they can be together, if they can just figure this out. He’s not above using his psychic gifts to draw them together on a sexual journey to self-discovery, but the road has more twists and turns than even he ever dreamed.

And there you have it! A great MM line up of giveaways! Here’s how it works:

Leave a comment for a chance to win all three books. AC Katt is offering up two copies so an additional winner will get just her book. So even if you don’t win all three, you can still possibly win just Cisco’s Boy! Tomorrow morning my hubs Rott will pick a name out of the hat for the big prize and one for the runner up prize. You have until midnight Pacific time to leave a comment.

Whew! It feels great to kick off this year’s giveaway! Let your friends know that I’ll be doing this from today right through to New Year’s Eve. It’s a chance to find new authors and win awesome books!

Have a great day!
