Now that it’s Christmas Eve I have a special giveaway for you. On the one hand, I’ve got something new for you…new author Dale Cameron Lowry! Then I’ve got something more established for you, Rainbow Romance Writers Chapter co-founder Laura Baumbach! And finally, I have something that is a little of both, a first novel from long-time editor Kris Jacen! It’s extra special having Kris today because it’s her birthday! Let’s take a look at the author bios and books!
Hi! I’m Dale. My number one goal in life is getting my cat to stop eating the dish towels. My close second is to write things that make people feel like they’re not alone in the world. I began writing for fun when I was a kid living in the Netherlands and needed something to do whenever it rained—about five times a day.
I’ve been making up stories ever since, from overly workshopped literary fiction (college almost destroyed my muse) to off-the-cuff fanfic. Queer Mormons have a way of popping up in my work. So do immigrants and emigrants, people with disabilities, multilingual folks, and others who, like me, spend their lives navigating multiple cultures. You can find out more about me and my books (and sign up for a free audiobook!) at https://dalecameronlowry.com/.
Nine of Dale Cameron Lowry’s best short romance stories, available for the first time in one book. Meet a sign language interpreter who finds unexpected love at middle-age, college students in their first relationships, a vampire who would rather be a vegan, and a proudly gay ex-Mormon atheist who develops Bible-study apps for a living. From sweet to erotic, this collection exhibits the quirkiness, fun, and diversity Dale’s writing is known for.

Warm up with whirlwind romances that last. Includes the contemporary short romances:

Part 3: Falling Deep
The deeper the love, the hotter the intimacy. Two short erotic romances—one about two college students in their first serious relationship, the other about a middle-aged couple who fall for a third man.

Betrayal, passion, adventure, primal sex, and a fight to the death. Mating a 26th century Oracan Bounty Hunter with an 18th century Earth pirate has its little glitches.
Bounty hunter Talos bows to pressure to bring his life mate home for the completion of his strict warrior culture’s bonding ritual. Aidan, displaced 18th century Earth pirate — light- fingered, sly, charming, and understandably naive about the new world he’s been thrust into — can’t wait. Even if it turns out someone wants him dead. The 26th century looks different, but it turns out to be a lot like his old life!
Kris Jacen grew up just north of Boston, Massachusetts, met her soldier in high school but didn’t married him until almost ten years later. She moved around with him and their daughters (born in two different states thanks to the Army) for the first 19 years of their marriage (they’ll celebrate their silver anniversary in 2018) before settling in western New York.
She has been the Editor in Chief and Formatting Director for ManLoveRomance Press and its imprints since January of 2008 and has never looked back. Working with the amazing authors at MLR has allowed her to both hone her editorial skills and indulge her inner fangirl. She also acts as editor, mentor and sounding-board for newcomers which lets her “pay-it-forward” and help authors realize their dreams.
