Winning the Campaign Manager

Cade Avery is running for a position on his local county council. He’s extremely good at what he does and is a valuable asset to his community. The trouble is, he upsets people, says the wrong things, and rides rough-shod over other people’s plans and ideas. His assistant, Mary, eager to improve Cade’s public image, hires him a campaign manager.

Quentin Rayworth is thrilled to be working with such a formidable public figure. It’ll be a challenge, but he’s confident he can help Cade to win the election, and knows that the achievement will look impressive on his CV.

It’s soon clear that the two men are set to be an excellent team. That is, until Cade’s werewolf makes its intentions known—in Quentin, it has found its mate, and it will not rest until he has claimed him. But can Cade—and his wolf—win over the campaign manager?

Elizabeth Varlet is a nerd at heart and spends way too many hours binging on episodes of her favorite television shows. If you love Doctor Who, Supernatural, Stargate, Star Trek, Sherlock, or Firefly you are already her best friend.

She started writing stories in high school and hasn’t stopped. Now, her characters like to get frisky under the covers – or the stars, they’re not picky. She’s a thirty-something, newly married, world-traveler who devours books like they were candy.



Sassy Boys Series

Fierce & Fabulous

The first book in a scorching new male/male series by Elizabeth Varlet. Behind the Sassy Boyz’s seductive smiles and sinful dance moves are desires that will leave readers breathless.

Fitch Donovan never thought a lap dance could change his life, but from the moment the gorgeous dancer’s lips touch his, his world comes screeching to a halt. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t shake the desire that rocks him to his core. He’s longed for this passion all his life—he just never dreamed he’d find it with another man.

Sharing a soul-shaking kiss with a straight boy is the kind of drama Ansel Becke just doesn’t need. Spotlights aren’t made for two and Ansel prefers to keep things on a one-night-only basis. So when Fitch shows up asking for an encore, Ansel knows he should send his gorgeous ass packing.

Though Ansel tries to pretend that what’s between him and Fitch is far from fabulous, there’s something about the big, burly contractor that makes Ansel’s world sparkle in a way no amount of glitter ever could. And Fitch will do whatever it takes to convince Ansel that when the thing you need most in the world falls right into your lap, you’d be a fool to let it go.

Dark & Dazzling

Z doesn’t need a hero…

Azariah “Z” Hayes is a diamond. Equal parts strength and sparkle, he’s more than capable of standing on his own stilettos. So if waiting tables and stripping at The Vibe are what it takes to keep a roof over his head, well, there are worse ways to earn a living.

Connelly is a white knight with a badge…

For NYPD Detective Connelly Reid, to serve and protect is just another day at the office–even if that means protecting himself from his own true desires. He’s been curious about Z, his waiter, for months but it’s not until he sees him in his makeup & heels that the curiosity becomes a fierce attraction. Z, despite all his over-the-top dazzle, might just be the man Connelly has been waiting for his entire life.

But when Connelly investigates underground porn and drug activity with ties to The Vibe, one thing becomes very clear –acting on what he knows will hurt Z, financially and emotionally. And though Connelly would love nothing more than to fix all of Z’s problems, no amount of mind-blowing sex can make Z comfortable becoming dependent on his lover. Yet if there’s one thing Connelly knows from his years on the force, it’s this: when things go bad, you need a trusted partner to have your back.

Sexy, seductive and hiding dark secrets, the Sassy Boyz return to the stage in  Brave & Beautiful

There’s only one relationship that matters to Tameron “Tam” Kis—his love affair with dance. Life’s been pretty shitty, but dance got him through it and now he’s ready to focus on what he loves. He doesn’t have the bandwidth for any distractions—especially not his sexy, not-quite-straight new neighbor.

Driver Ellis doesn’t need anything but his bike and the open road. He wouldn’t trade his drifter lifestyle for anything…until his friend calls in a favor and Driver suddenly finds himself pet-sitting. Driver isn’t thrilled being stuck in one place, though things start to look up when he sets eyes on the gorgeous girl next door.

There’s just one problem… She isn’t a girl at all.

All it takes is one spontaneous dance to turn both Driver’s and Tam’s worlds upside down. They might not have been looking for love, but as things heat up between them, it’s clear life has very different plans.

Day 15 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

We have had such a wonderful diversity of MM authors thus far in the giveaway. I know I’ve added to my TBR pile to the point my hubs is going to KILL me if I buy them all! But I love giving them away to readers at this time every year. I understand better than most people how rough life can be and how horrible it is to live in dark moments all the time. For me, the only saving grace in an often very difficult life are books. Books make me feel better. They lift me up when I am low even if it’s only for a short time. My sister Jeannette who died December of last year and her ex-husband who just died this week, instilled a love of culture, arts and books in me from a very young age. I’m not sure my nephew remembers that as I do, but it’s true.

Anyway, during this time of year, this giveaway is my way of giving something back to the community that has had my back through some very bad times. I offer a little promo to the authors in exchange for giving away a book to readers, and I offer them a chance to win a free ebook cover from Winterheart Design. For readers, this is their chance to come here every day and leave a comment for a chance to win each day’s books. Win-win-win.

So my winner of yesterday’s books is Sula! Hooray!

Today I have books from Autumn Montague and Jackson Marsh! Both of these books look great and I know whoever wins them will really enjoy their time reading!

Autumn grew up loving all things historical, all things romance, and all things Japanese. Celtic to her bones, she still became a devoted Japanophile. Her love of both cultures has led her to incorporate this love into her writing. Her stories are always well spiced with the taste of Japan and strange Celtic beasties. Sometimes lightly, sometimes heavily, but always deliciously.

Challenged By Love Box Set

Captain Theodore Hedgeford was once the Adonis of his cavalry unit. A devastating injury at Waterloo leaves him disfigured, and earns him a new nickname: Caliban. His lover abandons him, leaving Theo to suffer through his recovery alone. Determined to protect his heart from further pain, Theo finds his vow challenged by a not-so-chance encounter with cavalry groom Robin Thornfield. Unprecedented sexual pleasure and the comfort Rob provides wars with the humiliation of being unable to care for himself.

Robin Thornfield has longed to be by Theo’s side since Rob was a groom for their cavalry unit. Undaunted by Hedgeford’s devastating injuries, Rob takes the position of valet and sets about making himself indispensable. He is determined to provide for all of Theo’s needs: physical, emotional, and sexual. When Theo’s former lover returns with blackmail on his mind, Rob knows he must protect both Theo and their newly discovered love.

Note: Readers with a history of rape or sexual abuse may find elements of this story disturbing.

Julian Mure spent his adult life seeking nothing more than passing moments of pleasure, loving only himself. He prefered his own company to that of sycophants and casual liars, so the disdainful nickname of Narcissus holds no sting. Only one person has ever pierced Julian’s heart–pierced it and broken it at the same time–so falling in love is nothing he wishes to repeat. He finds the situation perfectly satisfying until the day his favorite hunter fails to clear a hedge-lined ditch, pitching them both headlong and costing Julian his right eye and arm.

Widower Alasdair Hedgeford was not oblivious to Julian’s desire, but married to Julian’s sister his place in the lad’s life was as older brother. No more. Over the years, he’s done his best to show Julian affection but that affection has changed into a desire for more.

Yielding to that desire would mean breaking two taboos. But given the opportunity to to visit Julian for the annual “First Foot” celebration, Alasdair cannot help but extend a challenge to the man: “Come dine with me tomorrow night, to celebrate the New Year.”

Nicholas Beauregard has spent his life trying to prove that his game leg and short stature will never stand in his way. Even so, his determination has done nothing to satisfy his most secret desire. When chance sends him an invitation to the notorious Twelfth Night Revel thrown by Viscount Colvin, Nicholas accepts. Though he’s never met the man, he’s heard rumors of the viscount’s debauched masquerades. Such a bawdy event should provide an eyeful of male anatomy to ogle, and perhaps, the right man. Someone with the power to accept his submission.

Viscount Sebastian Colvin is looking forward to this year’s revel, which promises to be filled with good company, self-indulgent pleasure, and a diversion from his father’s insistence that he marry. Scandalously clad as the god Apollo, Sebastian hopes this year’s revel will also bring him someone worthy of his darkest longing. Someone who is strong enough to accept his control.

Two secrets. Two powerful desires. And one chance to form a match made by the gods.

Jackson Marsh is a British author now living in the Greek islands. He has won awards for his gay erotic writing and has written for several adult websites. His collections of erotic gay shorts are available from membership sites. In 2007, Jackson won an EGPA for his writing.

‘Other People’s Dreams’ was his first gay romance novel; this is the revised edition. More Jackson Marsh novels will be coming soon.

Other People’s Dreams

Other People’s Dreams is an erotic gay thriller that combines the magic of the Greek islands with a story of obsessive sexual desire.

One yacht, a thousand islands and all the time in the world…

Four cute gay youths sign-up for the adventure of a lifetime; an all-expenses-paid sailing trip among the Greek islands. However, the boat’s wealthy owner, the handsome but troubled Jake Chambers, has a hidden agenda. His advertisement clearly stated, ‘Certain strings attached.’

Jake’s innocent crew become the victims of his obsessive behaviour when he turns his attention to each one of them in turn.

A stolen chance, lost love, a wrecked boat – Thirteen years of guilt are bound to take their toll.

Day 14 – 30 Days of Christmas Giveaway 2017

Let’s give away yesterday’s books before we get going on what’s up for grabs today. The winner of Nya’s Bad Boys and Ryo’s Bets with Benefits is Trix! Yay!

I have two more amazing authors for you today. Please welcome Jackie Keswick and Queturah Edeli!

Jackie Keswick was born behind the Iron Curtain with itchy feet, a bent for rocks and a recurring dream of stepping off a bus in the middle of nowhere to go home. She’s worked in a hospital and as the only girl with 52 men on an oil rig, spent a winter in Moscow and a summer in Iceland and finally settled in the country of her dreams with her dream team: a husband, a cat, a tandem, a hammer and a laptop.

Jackie loves unexpected reunions and second chances, and men who don’t follow the rules when those rules are stupid. She blogs about English history and food, has a thing for green eyes, and is a great believer in making up soundtracks for everything, including her characters and the cat.

And she still hasn’t found the place where the bus stops.

For questions and comments, not restricted to green eyes, bus stops, or recipes for traditional English food, you can find Jackie Keswick in all the usual places:






Undercover Star

It sounds like the stupidest idea in the history of stupid ideas. Detective Inspector Josh Ingram wants to find a deadly medieval locket and through it, a murderer. So why does his boss decide to team him up with Matisse Vervein, a pop idol many consider just a pretty face… and expect the two of them to hunt down an art thief?

Marissa Godwin, Matisse’s no-nonsense manager, isn’t stupid. Neither is her brother-in-law, Detective Superintendent Tim Montgomery. Each is looking out for a lonely man on the verge of quitting what he does best, and both believe that their charges would make a great team.

The attraction sizzling between Josh and Matisse is hard to miss, but there’s plenty of resentment, too. Focussed on pushing Josh and Matisse towards each other, Marissa and Tim haven’t imagined the kind of trouble a music star and a detective can find when they ditch their prejudices and accept that the attraction between them is mutual. Or how far each is prepared to go to prove it to the other.

A feel-good romance set in England and Scotland, featuring a reluctant pop star who’s not out, a detective trying his hand at being a bodyguard,  plenty of adventure, and a happy ending.

Qeturah (or, preferably, Q) was sleepless in Siberia before relocating a few times and recognizing her true calling as an erotic romance novelist. Before the revelation, Q did more schooling than is advisable in more countries than was necessary. The experience left her with a strong sense of wanderlust, a weak concept of identity, and an accent in every language, but her passion for arthouse films and Russian novels with minimum word counts of 200,000 is a birthright. Q enjoys frolicking through meadows with honeybees and the glamour of jetlag and living out of a suitcase. She turned down a sugar daddy proposal on a cog train as a teenager, a life choice she still sometimes questions.

The Highwayman Came Riding

Sassy Elias Burgess is the darling of Kitwick, a humdrum Georgian era village. Bored with his pedestrian life as the innkeeper’s son and village post boy, Elias dreams of escaping to London, the city where dreams come true. Only Elias’s bohemian twin sister, Bess, can match his acerbic wit and keep him sane. Together, they bewitch Kitwick with their beauty and intrigue, though no one, not even their father, understands them.

When he is stripped of his parcels (and clothes) by a smooth-talking highwayman, Elias is forced to walk home naked. Never one to let another man have the last word, Elias recruits the velvet-voiced redcoat, Mr. Sweeton, to help save his job by tracking down the missing post. However, the chivalrous Mr. Sweeton might have motivations for helping other than a desire to maintain order and uphold the law, and the highwayman might not be the villain he seems…


Don’t these two books look amazing! I know I want them! You can WIN them! Just leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time today, Dec 13th for a chance to win! Keep coming back every day in December for a chance to win MORE MM books from fantastic authors including my friend Nikki Prince who is up tomorrow!

Bets With Benefits

Be careful what you bet on…

Betting is all fun and games until you have to pay up when you lose. Within these three short stories we follow the ones who were on the losing end of a bet. The price they paid? They have to wear a pink Lolita dress.

Luckily for them, sometimes paying up comes with the best benefits.

* After receiving a shock from his late aunt’s past, Jake makes a bet with his devious lover and the loser pays penance.

* Michael Gentry lost a bet and decides to make the best of the situation with a little bit of seduction.

* Travis has a problem. But will his gambling win him a chance at finding true love or cost him everything?

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.

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.

Jenna Rose is an avid reader and writer, particularly when it comes to science-fiction and fantasy.  Currently, she works as a receptionist, but her real love is writing. In her free time, she likes to read comic books, play video games, and waste time on the internet. She currently lives in Massachusetts with her dog, Harley.

Katey Hawthorne is an avid reader and writer of superpowered and paranormal romance, even though the only degree she holds is in the history of art. (Or, possibly, because the only degree she holds is in the history of art.) Originally from the Appalachian foothills of West Virginia, she currently lives in Ohio with her family, two cats, and one very large puppy. In her spare time she enjoys travel, comic books, B-movies, loud music, video games, Epiphones, and Bushmills. Her favorite causes include animal rescue and bisexual representation in media.

Amazon | Barnes & Noble>Loose Id

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!
