New York City, 1853

Jake Huntington is a notorious womanizer, plunging blithely into one liaison after another, with no intention of settling down.

Ash Moore is sexier than any woman Jake has ever met. Although he has always been curious about men, Jake has never before been attracted to one. Throwing caution to the wind, Jake is elated when Ash responds to his advances, and they spend a torrid night in each other’s arms.

The two men go to Jake’s home in New York City, where they embark on a lively and clandestine affair over the long, hot summer.

Jake enjoys the novelty of being with Ash. He is a friend and not just a lover, but Jake has no expectation their affair will last any longer than the summer. He is shocked to find he is in love, an emotion he has avoided after the painful experiences of his youth. Confronted and unsettled by his emotions, he tries to extricate himself from their entanglement.  Jake soon discovers that his heart will not let go so easily.

Day Fifteen: 30 Days of Christmas 2016

30daysofchristmas2016We are halfway through December already! Can you believe it? The winner of Douglas Black’s Taste In Men plus the pot sweetener is…Trix!

Today, I have my friend, the amazing Jaime Samms plus another pot sweetener. Since we’re half way to the end of the year, and the end of the giveaway, I’ve gotta start ramping things up! So let’s start out with a message from Jaime!

Hello everyone! Thanks so much to Lex for doing this wonderful giveaway and celebration of the holidays. I’m so happy to participate in it. Brings back a lot of great memories, and makes me think back on all kinds of traditions I’m looking forward to revisiting once again this year. For now, I’m happy to offer the first book in my most recent series: Dance, Love, Live.  The book’s title is Like No One Is Watching, and features ballet dancers!

You can find me in a few places around social media:

Jaime has been writing for various publishers since the fall of 2008, although she’s been writing for herself far longer. Often asked why men—what’s so fascinating about writing stories about men falling in love—she’s never come up with a clear answer. Just that these are the stories that she loves to read, so it seemed to make sense if she was going to write, they would also be the stories she wrote.

These days, you can find plenty of free reading on her website. She also writes for Dreamspinner Press, Pride Publishing, and now, Riptide Publishing.

Spare time, when it can be found rolled into a ball at the back of the dryer or cavorting with the dust bunnies in the corners, is spent crocheting, drawing, gardening (weather permitting, of course, since she is Canadian!), or watching movies. She has a day job, as well, which she loves, and two kids, but thankfully, also a wonderful husband who shoulders more than his fair share of household and child-care responsibilities.

She graduated some time ago from college with a fine arts diploma, and a major in textile arts, which basically qualifies her to draw pictures and create things with string and fabric. One always needs an official slip of paper to fall back on after all . . .

Dusty has finally landed a job he thinks he’ll be able to keep long-term, even with his broken brain and bum knee. He didn’t anticipate that cleaning a dance studio would reawaken his yearning to dance—even though he is no longer capable—or that meeting the studio’s director would rouse his dormant libido. Or his sleeping heart.
Conrad thinks his life is finally complete with his successful dance studio and a steady stream of students. When Dusty arrives, he rediscovers his thirst for a man who will let him hand over control and give him the undivided attention he’s never had. The trouble is, Dusty isn’t sure he’s worthy of the studio director’s submission.
To make their relationship work, Dusty will have to trust his ability to dominate the powerful and beautiful dancer, and Conrad will have to stop talking long enough to hear Dusty’s promises.

I’m such a fan of Jaime’s stories and this series looks like it’s not to be missed! Now to sweeten the pot, I’m adding a copy of Save Your Love in both ebook and audiobook!

saveyourlove_300Save Your Love

Decades define a young man’s life as he goes from a virgin discovering his sexual orientation to a rock star fending off masses of lovestruck fans to a composer of Broadway musicals while an epic love for his best friend commands his heart, permeates his soul and flows through his music.

Jay Sparks lost his virginity and found his true sexual orientation at a rock festival on his eighteenth birthday. He also gave away his heart. Through the years, Jay’s love for his best friend and first lover Matt Langdon has never died. The one thing Jay has always known to be true was that he and Matt loved each other. Even when they were apart, Jay always felt Matt’s presence within him and beside him. When fate finally brings them back together, finding a way to blend their lives becomes a labor of love. Through their years together, the love they found at eighteen grows and matures but remains an eternal flame that burns unwavering in both their hearts.

And there you have it! A wonderful book from Jaime Samms and a little something from me! For a chance to win these books, leave a comment on this post by midnight! And come back every day this month for more MM book giveaways! Coming up Laura Baumbach, Sloan Parker and BA Tortuga!

Day Thirteen: 30 Days of Christmas 2016

30daysofchristmas2016Yesterday, Stephanie Lake offered up a copy of His Second Chance, a MM historical romance.  I had to put it right on my wish list it sounded so good! But now there’s one person who won’t have to wish for it and that’s…QuinGem!

Today, I have the great pleasure of introducing a new author to you! I did all the covers for this series and let me tell you, these books sound smokin’ hot! So here’s J.M. Dabney and the first two books of the Twirled World Ink series!

By day, J.M.’s an introverted cook hiding out in her kitchen in the middle of nowhere Ohio, by night and any free time she may have, she is a writer of mainly LGBTQ Fiction and Erotica. Although, she’s equal opportunity when it comes to telling a story, she’ll even write a bit of straight erotic romance when the mood strikes.

She has been writing for years in old notebooks. At the age of eight, she wrote the worst poem in the history of poetry, but it sparked her love for writing. She reads too much and loves to get lost in other worlds and her favorite stories must include laughter and having the reader doing at least one double take. Thirty-something, forever restless she uses her stories to ground herself, and find her place of peace.

Welcome to Twirled World where the crazies run the Asylum.

The hum of a tattoo machine was Brian “Berzerker” Anderson’s favorite sound in the world. He’d won a coveted spot at Twirled World Ink with a legend in the business, Gib Phelps. Creating beauty with his large, scarred hands was his happy place—the place where he fit in the world. Although, nothing could remain perfect forever, his boyfriend of over a year decided to move on and up without him in tow. He had two choices return to living with his friends and co-workers or take an offer too tempting to pass up.

Landon Phelps grew up in an unusual home as the only child to Legendary Tattoo Artist Gib Phelps and mother, Peaches. He always felt a bit out of place when he became a boring accountant instead of following in his parents’ footsteps. Boundaries were in place early on; he didn’t date the employees of Twirled World Ink. Sometimes rules were meant to be broken. Bezerker was his idea of perfection, large, husky and tattooed; the thick, grab-worthy beard was a bonus. So when the boyfriend became the ex, Landon decided it was time to get his man.

With the help of the matchmaking Twirled Crew, can Landon finally get Berzerker to see him as more than a friend and the employer’s son?

Welcome to Twirled World Ink where the crazies run the asylum.

Model perfect Jimmy “Trouble” Carver had never heard the word no. Tattooed, sexy and the quintessential bad boy Trouble had men falling over themselves to get to him. What people didn’t know about him was he was self-conscious even if life was easy for him. He’d started out as an apprentice at Twirled World Ink after college and never looked back. Trouble was exactly where he wanted to be, although there was one-speed bump, his crush refused to go out on a date.

Brody Vaughn worked in a dead-end job, barely making it from paycheck to paycheck. He didn’t have much time for anyone other than his five-year-old daughter Mina and besides he’d never quite found a place in this world he fit. Chunky and average, that’s how he felt, except for when Trouble came into the grocery store where he worked. The flirty, gorgeous man asked him out every week with a sexy smile, but Brody had to refuse. It wasn’t as if he wanted to say no, it was just how could he date a man Brody knew he had no business trying to keep.

The Crazies of Twirled World Ink excel at one thing, matchmaking, and they are determined their resident bad boy would get his man. They just had to make sure that neither Trouble or Brody screwed up their plan.

Day Twelve: 30 Days of Christmas 2016


Yesterday, I had my Air Force guys Bas and Ryder up for grabs in Afterburner and Breath of Heaven. Breath of Heaven is a Christmas story, meant to make you cry and still warm your heart with love and the spirit of Christmas. I know what it’s like to have bittersweet Christmases like Ryder. More than ever, I feel the need to connect with that spirit because Life has conspired to take so much from me. Yet even in the face of losing my babies and sleeping in my car, I try to give back because if I don’t then I’ve given up and I’m not ready to give up. As I type this, I don’t even know if we’ll be able to pay for the motel room by Monday morning, which is frightening and stressful for us.

This holiday season, please try to give back to someone, to pay forward any favors and kindnesses given to you throughout the year.  There are many people out there who are suffering in different ways. Even small acts of kindness matter especially during the holiday season because not everyone can have a happy Christmas and like Ryder, find that the holiday is bittersweet at best.

So the winner of yesterday’s books and audio book is…Didi! Yay!

Today, I have MM author Stephanie Lake with a gay historical called His Second Chance.

Stephanie Lake is the pen name for a husband/wife team who enjoy writing historical M/M (gay) romance with happy endings and steamy middles. We hope you enjoy His Second Chance, the first book in the His Second Chance series. We’d love to hear from you, so check out our website for contact info at:

Stephanie and Lake joined forces with Jules Radcliffe, another author of queer historical fiction, to produce a monthly newsletter with news and updates on what we’re doing, plus competitions, and giveaways.

A handsome sailor once stole his heart – can Randall forget him in the arms of another?

The Seventh Viscount of Torring, Randall Blair is more than disgusted with unfaithful lovers.  When his last lover announces his engagement to the current reigning belle, Randall decides to suppress his true nature and follow suit.  He is determined, once and for all, to forget the dark sailor who slipped in and out of his life five years before.

Lady Prudence Wedgewood has, for a member of the fair sex, unquestioned beauty, and shows a surprising wit, which will entertain Randall, even if her well-proportioned body does not arouse his desires.  The marriage should at least be, bearable.

Lieutenant David Wedgewood has always been beyond discreet with his unnatural attraction to men.  An attraction, which years ago, nearly set Randall’s bed aflame for a blissful, torrid week.

The Blair and Wedgewood wedding plans unfold flawlessly, until Lady Prudence’s brother returns: Randall’s long lost sailor.

David returned for only one reason: to save his beloved sister from a marriage destined to bring nothing but pain.  Marriage to a sod!  He will kill Randall if that’s what it takes to stop the wedding.  And he is willing to seduce Randall, to prove that this marriage can only end in disaster and heartbreak.
