Day 12 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Yesterday I had Liv Rancourt and Melissa Costa as my featured authors and today, I’ve got the winner of their books! Give it up for JenCW! WOOT!

Today, I’ve got THREE books to giveaway from four authors! Featured today are NL Gassert, LL Dahlin and Jenna Rose and Katey Hawthorne!

NL Gassert is the author of The Protector, a 2009 Lambda Literary Award finalist for best gay romance.

NL Gassert (Nadja) is a native of Germany and nomad by choice. She has lived on three continents, including two tropical islands, where she survived super typhoons and earthquakes. Her nomadic lifestyle recently ended, when her redheaded Veteran husband (“Hooah”) retired from the military. They settle in lush Georgia (for now).

A professionally-trained concierge, she also worked as a public relations assistant and was a staff writer for a Japanese weekly. She has a master’s degree in Communication and Information Studies from Rutgers University and currently works—underpaid, but not underappreciated—at a Middle School.

Nadja is a member of Romance Writers of America.  She is a fibromyalgia warrior, a recovering insomniac, and a voracious reader.

The Protector

Soren Buchanan feels trapped by his controlling father James, a businessman who’s clever at masking illegal financial dealings on the tropical island of Guam. When James finally asks too much of him, Soren flees to the FBI for help.

Until Soren’s information pans out, the Bureau can’t protect him — so the task falls to Mason Ward, security specialist and former US Army Ranger.

Protecting Soren should be easy enough, but Soren is young, seductive, and not entirely forthcoming about the trouble following him. Mason must fight his growing attraction to the young man as well as thugs sent to bring Soren Buchanan home … dead or alive.

This finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for best gay romance is perfect for fans of LA Witt’s Okinawa series.

Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms Dealers

The first in the series is Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms dealers. It’s like paranormal mystery–with an m/m pairing. There are puns, supernatural hijinks, a grouchy wolf shifter, and a demisexual main character. Their website has more, if you wanna check it out.

John Tilney–praeternatural pyrokinetic and mystery author–has noticed the bottom dropping out of the market for his usual gothic fare, so he goes to Lowell Kanaan, PI, for a crash course in noir. Lowell, the cranky wolf-shifter detective, isn’t sure why he agrees to let John shadow him–though it might have something to do with John’s weirdly endearing honesty… and pretty lips. John thinks he’s found the perfect detective novel hero in Lowell, but it isn’t long before he realizes he doesn’t want Lowell for his book, but for himself.

As they become entangled in a supernatural whodunnit involving the Zombie Mafia, black market body parts, and shady insurance deals, their partnership grows closer–and hotter. But when it comes down to the wire, Lowell’s wolfy protective side threatens to drive John around the bend, or at least out of the office. Good thing John’s as much sunshine as he is fire; hopefully it’s enough to help them catch a murderer before they end up in literal pieces, too.

Ooooh. Don’t those three look good? I know I’d read them! For a chance to win all three books, leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time. And keep coming back, I’ve got the best MM authors on the planet coming soon to this blog and YOU could win their books just by leaving a comment here on every new post!

Happy Holidays!

 

Day 11 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Whew! What a loooong weekend. I exhausted myself at the company holiday party.  I guess I wasn’t as ready to expend that much energy as I thought. I was pretty much useless all of Sunday. But I did manage to write this post! I wouldn’t forget to give away books, I promise! Yesterday we had books by Harper Jewel and Shane Morton and today I have a winner of those books. Big hand for Susana! YAY!

Now, I know I’m behind on contacting authors with their winners, so everyone just relax. I will be caught up by Wednesday. I just didn’t realize how much time edits for Christmas books and work on the holiday party were going to take out of me! But I will get those emails out Monday and Tuesday so winners and authors keep your eyes peeled!

For today, I’ve got two more new to me MM authors and I really think you’ll like both of them. Please welcome Liv Rancourt and Melissa Costa! Let’s check out the books they are giving away.

Vespers by Liv Rancourt

Thaddeus Dupont has had over eighty years to forget…

The vampire spends his nights chanting the Liturgy of the Hours and ruthlessly disciplines those unnatural urges he’s vowed never again to indulge. He is at the command of the White Monks, who summon him at will to destroy demons. In return, the monks provide for his sustenance and promise the return of his immortal soul.

Sarasija Mishra’s most compelling job qualification might be his type O blood…

The 22-year-old college grad just moved across the country to work for some recluse he can’t even find on the internet. Sounds sketchy, but the salary is awesome and he can’t afford to be picky. On arrival he discovers a few details his contract neglected to mention, like the alligator-infested swamp, the demon attacks, and the nature of his employer’s “special diet”. A smart guy would leave, but after one look into Dupont’s mesmerizing eyes, Sarasija can’t seem to walk away. Too bad his boss expected “Sara” to be a girl.

Falling in love is hard at any age…

The vampire can’t fight his hungers forever, especially since Sara’s brought him light, laughter and a very masculine heat. After yielding to temptation, Thaddeus must make a choice. Killing demons may save his soul, but keeping the faith will cost him his heart.

You can find Liv at: www.livrancourt.com

Melissa Costa writes character-driven fiction, and any genre is fair game. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading, anime, manga, gaming, theme parks, and board games with friends. She’s completely obsessed with pelicans, pirates, and everything about the sea! Living by the motto of trying all things twice, Melissa has jumped out of a perfectly good plane, swam with manatees, dove head first into Alice’s rabbit hole, and seduced classy ladies in 6 inch heels. A free-spirited bohemian, she currently lives in artsy St. Petersburg, Florida with her soulmate and their two, adorably needy cats.

Dream Infected

Brett, one of the few survivors of Sandman’s Dream, infecting most of humanity, is secretly in love with his best friend, Ivan. When Ivan becomes infected, will Brett be forced to abandon him to the Dream, or will he fight for one he loves?

Day 10 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Yesterday I brought you three authors who were new to me! I hope you really liked what they had to offer and have checked them out! Now, the winner of those books is Alexis Woods! WOOO HOOO!

Today, I’ve got a great holiday book for you from my fellow Loose Id author Harper Jewel and an intriguing book from Shane K. Morton. Let’s take a look!

Harper Jewel lives in northeast New Jersey with her husband and college-age daughter. She has two cats, enjoys reading, and taking trips to Walt Disney World. With her outgoing personality and vivid imagination, she can create characters and plots that are believable as well as memorable.

Although she began writing male/female romance/erotica, she has finally found her niche in Gay Romance. She thoroughly enjoys her male characters as they speak to her quite loudly while proving love is love. She is proud to have the honor of being the first M/M author accepted at the now-closed Lush Publishing.

In addition to her writing, she uses her college education and background in English and Language Arts to work as an independent editor. She’s also expanded her skills to include formatting for Smashwords Premium Catalog, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, & Amazon.

In September 2015, she created Slippery Fingers Press & Publishing Services. She uses the company name for self-publishing as well as her editing and formatting jobs.

Ripping Off the Mask her first full-length novel, published by Loose Id is now available at most e-book retailers.

Santa’s Naughty Elf

Playing Santa in the local department store should be an easy way to make a few extra bucks, shouldn’t it? That’s what Brock Daniels thought when he took the job at a local department store. Once he finds out a handsome ginger—his one weakness—will be playing Santa’s elf, easy becomes complicated, even if it’s an enjoyable snag.

When Paul Martens discovers who’ll be playing Santa to his elf, déjà vu of an unforgettable night with a certain Dom that took place almost two years ago comes crashing down on him.

The attraction between Brock and Paul grows to fevered levels while a runaway teen pulls at both men’s heartstrings. Will they find a way to put aside their ardent feelings and channel some holiday magic in order to grant everyone’s Christmas wish?

The Year of the Cock

Told by the people who know him best, The Year Of The Cock, is a year in the growth of their best friend, Jon. He is that magical being that no one chooses to be, the third wheel. However, he appears to have it all; A social butterfly that always has a place to go, things to do, and people to constantly surround him. The one thing he’s missing is someone to truly love. How can he love someone else when he doesn’t like the person staring back at him in the mirror?

Can he learn to love, to open himself up to the messy truth of relationships? Will he finally become the person he has tried to repress his entire adult life or will the year-end with him stuck in the status quo of his gay bachelorhood?

Day 9 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

The last couple of days were BIG days with popular authors and a lot of activity! Today I’ve got three new to me authors and I hope that you will give them a big welcome! Before we look at today’s books, I’ve got a winner for Lucy Lennox, AE Wasp and me, Lex Valentine! Congrats to Yolanda!

Now, on to today’s giveaway. I’m gonna have a busy night tonight at my company’s holiday party. I even have a little red dress! It’s literally a little red dress since it’s THREE whole sizes smaller than anything I’ve worn in the past few years. So I’m really excited to bring you these new to me authors and you can just imagine me doing the Snoopy dance in my little red dress as you read about them!

After years on hiatus, Raven de Hart returned to writing her tantalizing tales and salacious stories. She is the author of Wild Ride as well as a variety of erotic short stories. Her work has been featured in anthologies through Storm Moon Press, Bold Strokes Books, Cleis Press, and Ravenous Romance. She is the author of several books, including Street Magic and Silverfall. She lives in a small, restored cottage on the coast of Washington. When she’s not writing or researching, she can be found tending her herb garden, playing with her Basset hounds, and trying to figure out this new-fangled internet fad. More information can be found on her blog (http://dehartslist.bogspot.com), on Twitter (@dehartslist), or on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/RavendehartMM).

Heart of a Pirate

A land of ancient magic, a tale of fated hearts.

Diman has long sought a new life, a better life. One separated from the village that shuns him. He dreams of big cities, fantastic sights, far-flung travels. And he dreams of love. But his village denies him that, the most basic of rights. When Makri, goddess of the sea, visits him in a dream, she offers him a new life.

Ladir has served the Temple of Glidak his entire life, spreading their message to the farthest edges of Madijak. Yet darkness shrouds him, hardens his heart against the Church of Dera, the order who murdered his parents. He longs for vengeance, for punishment. He longs for annihilation. But a new arrival at the temple throws his life into disarray. Now, if he pursues his revenge, he may well the person who has come to mean everything to him.

A man of peace, long-suffering. A man of passion, seeking violence. Both caught in a conflict that seeks to destroy them. But powerful emotions run between them, bind them as one. Will their ties be strong enough to last, or will this tension crack their bonds?

After thirty years of working with the unemployed, coping with threats, tears and broken lives (and these were only from fellow staff), LV Lloyd decided it was time to make her escape.  And what better place to go than the world of m/m romance?  She started writing Dangerous Tension, her first ebook, years ago, but put it aside due to work and family commitments.

In 2012, she dusted off the foolscap pages stored under her bed, finished the story and turned it into a book.  Since then, she has written five more ebooks in the Aurigan Space Saga series, and numerous short stories.

Gothic Romance is her first venture into a new genre, Historical Romance.

 LV Lloyd lives in Adelaide, Australia, with her family and three cats.  In her spare time she enjoys fishing and visiting the many local wineries.”

Gothic Romance

When Jonathan Winters accepts a post as tutor to the only son of Lord D’Anvers, he looks forward to sharing his love of learning with his young pupil.  Not even arriving at Castle Blackstone in the middle of a thunderstorm can dampen his enthusiasm, nor the fact that the wing above his head is forbidden.

Absorbed with Evelyn’s education, Jonathan is completely unprepared to find himself the object of Lord D’Anvers’ attentions.

Until D’Anvers kisses him…

 A Gay Historical Romance (with apologies to Jane Eyre…)

Riza Curtis began writing stories at a young age to the a̶n̶n̶o̶y̶a̶n̶c̶e̶  delight of anyone she could b̶u̶l̶l̶y̶ persuade to read them. Now somewhat older, if not wiser, things haven’t really changed.

Riza lives in England where they enjoy adding extra letters to words, tea, and discussing the weather (it’s always raining). She has a FdSci in Manufacturing Engineering and is currently working towards her BEng. When she’s not writing, studying or doing her day job, Riza is obsessed with music and enjoys annoying her neighbours by playing five different instruments*!

The Cupids Do Christmas

Piotr “Snake” Lewin has had it with his job as one of Aphrodite’s cupids. He’s sick of all the true love bollocks, and if he has to watch one more couple fall in love, heads are going to roll. Probably literally.

The final straw is the announcement that the cupids will be helping out Father Christmas in the run up to the most materialistic day of the year. One overcommercialised holiday a year is more than enough, thanks.

That’s it. Piotr quits. Now, he just has to survive the one month notice period at ‘The North Pole’, and the cute elf who’s dead set on making friends.

Day 8 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

We are about at the halfway point for the MM books and the last couple of days we’ve just had a lot of people interested in winning a book! THAT is what I like to see, readers finding authors they didn’t know about and books that interest them and actually having a real opportunity to win some! That being said, our Day 6 winner is Michelle! YAY!!

Today, I get to showcase another of the authors I read while I was recovering from open surgery (that bigger than a man’s fist sized gallstone I had.) So I have Lucy Lennox, AE Wasp and a little something from me!

When I was mostly bed-ridden I read a lot and one of the books I read was Safe and Sound by Lucy Lennox and Sloane Kennedy. Great book! I loved it lots! So when Lucy said she’d love to be part of this year’s giveaway I jumped at a chance to have her! Lucy is giving away the choice of her backlist but here is some info on Safe and Sound, the book I so enjoyed.

After enjoying creative writing as a child, Lucy didn’t write her first novel until she was over 40 years old. Her debut novel, Borrowing Blue, was published in the autumn of 2016. Lucy has an English Literature degree from Vanderbilt University, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the years and years of staying up all night reading tantalizing novels on her own. She has three children, plays tennis, and hates folding laundry. While her husband is no shmoopy romance hero, he is very good at math, cooks a mean lasagne, has gorgeous eyes, looks hot in his business clothes, and makes her laugh every single day. Lucy hopes you enjoy sexy heroes as much as she does. Happy reading!

Safe and Sound

I’ve been drowning for a long time. I never thought I’d find someone who knows what that’s like…

Self-proclaimed playboy, Aiden Vale, has it all – good looks, successful career, plenty of cash in the bank and an endless supply of men who know the score… that one night is just that. So the last thing he wants, or needs, is to forge a connection that might mean revealing more of himself than he’s ready to. But when fate intervenes, putting Aiden in the path of someone who threatens to knock down his carefully constructed walls, he’s quick to realize the young man he’s become infatuated with is hiding a painful secret.

I finally have a shot at freedom. I’ll never let anyone take that from me ever again…

Ash Valentine is just looking for a way out, and the last thing he wants or needs is another man controlling every aspect of his life. Desperate for the cash that will help him flee his abusive boyfriend, Ash accepts what is supposed to be a temporary job at a local coffee shop. But nothing prepares him for the gorgeous and enigmatic Aiden Vale, and the small acts of kindness the charming coffee shop regular bestows on him or the new friends he begins to make along the way.

Terrified of once again becoming too reliant on someone else to take care of him, Ash refuses Aiden’s repeated offers of help in any form. But when it becomes clear that there’s something more behind Aiden’s need to save him, Ash begins to wonder if he’s found someone who needs saving just as badly.

I know he wants to save me, but what if he’s the one who needs saving…

As their tentative friendship turns into something more, long buried secrets begin to surface. When Aiden’s need to protect Ash clashes with the younger man’s desire for independence, memories of the one he couldn’t save begin to tear at the fragile cords of Aiden’s soul, and he’s forced to face a truth he’s been hiding from for a long time.

Threatened with losing what they’ve only just found, will Aiden and Ash find a way to accept their pasts or will they let the pain drag them below the surface for good?

When AE Wasp heard I was giving away books, she wanted in! Authors that like to give back to the readers while exposing them to other authors and books are the lifeblood of the publishing community. So I was more than happy to have Amy join in and I know you are going to want to win her book!

After time spent raising children, earning several college degrees, and traveling the world with the U.S. State Department, she is returning to her first love – writing.

A dreamer and an idealist, Amy writes about people finding connection in a world that can seem lonely and magic in a world that can seem all too mundane. She invites readers into her characters’ lives and worlds when they are their most vulnerable, their most human, living with the same hopes and fears we all have. An avid traveler who has lived in big cities and small towns in four different continents, Amy has found that time and distance are no barriers to love. She invites her readers to reach out and share how her characters have touched their lives or how the found families they have gathered around them have shaped their worlds.

Born on Long Island, NY, Amy has lived in Los Angeles, London, and Bangkok. She currently lives in a town suspiciously like Red Deer, Colorado.

City Boy

Follow the money or follow your heart? Either way, you lose.

When a blown tire leads directly to mind-blowing sex with a white knight named Dakota, pro-hockey player Bryce Lowery discovers he is most definitely gay.

Being with Dakota opens up a whole new world. Bryce can’t imagine life without him. But he refuses to be Bryce’s dirty little secret. If he wants to keep Dakota, he’s either going to have to come out publicly or retire and walk away from millions of dollars.

Bryce Lowery feels like the answer to all of Dakota’s prayers. But is Dakota willing to leave the only life he’s ever known only to be thrust into the spotlight as the boyfriend of the first out gay hockey player? Would their relationship even survive it?

He’ll lose Bryce if he doesn’t because Bryce will leave eventually. No one would turn down millions of dollars for a nobody with nothing.

City Boy is a first time gay, fish out of water, May/December love story with a happy ending. It features snarky siblings, a dirty-talking farmer, lots of food, and big choices. (No poultry was harmed in the making of this book.)
