What Eden finds is Colin Granville, her brother Declan’s new brother in law. Desire burns hot between them despite the lack of surnames and after one night together, they both want more.

Shifting Winds

Elysia Granville is gunshy when it comes to men. A previous relationship went belly up in a very public way, in front of hundreds of her peers at a Funeral Guild Convention. The one man who helped her on that humiliating day has always stuck in the back of her mind although she avoided him as much as she avoided other men. His kindness to her that day matched with his tall, dark handsomeness made her fall a little for him. Despite her crush, she’s never sought him out. Until now.

Declan Antaeus is a big man, athletic, muscular and a black dragon shifter. With his clan mark of tribal lines creating a twisting dragon that curls from his back over his shoulder, he’s masculinity with a capital M. But Declan’s got a soft spot and that’s for vampire Elysia Granville. He’s been secretly in love with her since he first met her while she was still engaged to the man who eventually dumped her at the convention. He’s been waiting for a chance to get close to her, to finally touch her. And he finally gets it on Halloween of all nights.

One Halloween funeral industry costume party. Two immortals with a crush. One night they will never forget. But can a home and hearth dragon like Declan turn one night into the forever a gunshy Elysia so secretly desires?

In Passion and Blood

Now that Dante has found his mate, Brenden, all he wants to do is live in peace and be left alone. Unfortunately, peace is pretty hard to find when you are living with a clan of Drone Rebel Vampires. After years of being treated as second-class citizens by the Pure Born run government, the discrimination against the Drones has reached frightening new levels. Entire clans are disappearing as rumors of mass murders swirl around the paranormal community. Dante knows it’s only a matter of time before his adopted Drone Clan is next.

The situation becomes even more desperate when the Pure Borns learn that Brenden has created a weapon that could turn the tide for the rebels and help end the persecution forever. Will Dante be able to protect his mate or will he be forced to sacrifice Brenden to help save the rest of the Drone Clan?

Aimee Nicole Walker is going to give the winner their choice of her book list! But never fear, I’ll showcase one of her books so you can see what she’s got to offer. 😉 Here’s Aimee’s bio and the book info happens to be for the one I am currently reading!

I am a wife and mother to three kids, four dogs, and a cat. When I’m not dreaming up stories, I like to lose myself in a good book, cook or bake. I’m a girly tomboy who paints her fingernails while watching sports and yelling at the referees. I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever-after. Love inspires everything that I do. Music keeps me sane.

I’d love to hear from you.

A Dye Hard Holiday (Curl Up and Dye Mysteries #5)

It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of year for Gabe and Josh Roman-Wyatt as they celebrate their first holidays as fathers, but someone’s war on St. Nick threatens to ruin their holly jolly Christmas.

The Norman Rockwell holiday they had envisioned implodes and shenanigans ensue in true Josh and Gabe style, but that only makes the couple more determined to rejoice in the love and joy they have found in one another. A Black Friday showdown, two foul-mouthed birds, one lumbersexual, ugly Christmas sweaters aplenty, four invading grandparents, and a sexy twist on an advent calendar lead up to oh, holy nights. Catch up with your favorite characters and meet some new faces in a tale that is sure to make you feel as warm as Josh’s creamy, hot-buttered rum concoction.

A Dye Hard Holiday is a funny story about two fathers trying to hold it all together as they juggle busy careers and family life while planning the perfect holiday season. Will they be rocking around the Christmas tree or will it be a blue Christmas? The book is approximately 50,000 words long and is not intended as a standalone book. This supplements the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series, which should be read in order. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and over.

The one thing Haven Noel wants for his Christmas birthday is for his master, Kellen, to love him. But the wonderful Christmas Eve Haven plans for his master goes awry and instead of receiving his master’s love, Haven ends up on the street without his collar. Heartbroken, Haven heads to the club where he and Kellen originally met, only to find it closed.

With a blizzard descending and nowhere to go, Haven curls up on the club doorstep, courting death. Hopeless and shattered, on the verge of losing consciousness, he makes a wish for Kellen to find happiness some day. Two angels with a vested interest in Haven and Kellen’s happiness hear his wish and conspire with Kellen’s family to save Haven’s life, bring love back to Kellen’s heart and give them both the best kinky Christmas ever.

Day 24 – 30 Days of Christmas Giveaway 2017

This week has just been crazy hot with amazing books! Yesterday, I gave away a book and hosted Lane Hayes and Riley Hart, both from SoCal. The winner of those three books is ShelliRie! Hooray!

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/.

Falling Hard

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.

Part 1: Falling Fast

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

  • Mi Alma
  • Loggerhead
  • Reading the Signs

Part 2: Falling Fantastically

Because reality is overrated. Includes four paranormal, fantasy and sci-fi stories of romance and eroticism with ghosts, fairies, vampires, and space travelers:

  • Born of Fire
  • Ghost of a Chance
  • Far From Home
  • Sweeter Than Blood

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.

  • Rough Love
  • Pacific Rimming

Named by ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE as ‘a pioneer of the M/M romance genre’,  Laura Baumbach is the best-selling, multi-award winning author of short stories, novellas, novels and screenplays. Author of one of the first recognized published resource articles on the category of m/m erotic romance, For the Love Of Man, for ERWA Writer’ Resource article published in September 2008. She is the founder of the only RWA Chapter for GLBT romance author, RAINBOW ROMANCE. Laura devotes herself full time to publishing and writing. She is the owner of ManLoveRomance Press, a small publishing house that specializes in m/m erotic romance, mystery and fiction. (http://www.mlrpress.com)

Genetic Snare

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.

You can find out more about Kris on her website www.krisjacen.com.

Wait For Me

Master Sergeant Jeff “Mackey” MacNamara has been waiting for THE ONE for years. First it wasn’t too safe to find a partner and now his schedule is a nightmare with training soldiers and deployments.

Scott Ash has found where he always was meant to be after a brief bout of idealistic do-gooder after college. He loves his job as a child care director, if he could just find someone to love – perfect might cover it.

A chance meeting when Scott is doing a favor for a friend starts them on a journey that could take them to forever, it’s just a matter of waiting.

The lineup to today is pretty special. All three authors live in Southern California! I’ve got Lane Hayes and Riley Hart, both of whom are auto buys of mine, plus my latest paranormal from Loose Id.

Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and won first prize in the 2016 and 2017 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in a newly empty nest.

Leaning Into Touch

Josh Sheehan is unlucky in love and now… newly unemployed. He’s not sure what to do next, but he’s sure he should give up on romance. Especially after last time. His friends warned him that falling for the hunky Irishman was a bad idea. Josh can’t help feeling torn even though he knows it’s best to move on. But when an unexpected dose of family drama blindsides him, Josh finds himself leaning on the one man he’s supposed to forget.

Finn Gallagher is driven by success. He makes no secret that building a name for his tech company is his number one goal. Finn left home a decade ago with a ton of regret, a heavy heart, and a vow to never repeat the same mistake twice. However, there is something undeniably appealing about the self-deprecating man with the silly sense of humor that makes it difficult for Finn to remember why falling for Josh is a bad idea. It soon becomes clear they’re both in deeper than they intended. There is no way to remain untouched. And there is so much to gain, if they’re brave enough to lean in.

Riley Hart is the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. She’s a hopeless romantic, a lover of sexy stories, passionate men, and writing about all the trouble they can get into together.

She loves reading, flawed characters, and hanging out with her husband and children, who she adores. She and her family live in Southern California, soaking up the sunshine while also missing seasons. Not a day goes by that she isn’t thankful she gets to wake up and do what she loves.

Life is good. Riley also writes young adult and new adult under the name Nyrae Dawn.

Depth of Field

Shane Wallace has made a decent life for himself in Last Chance. He built his own home on his mom’s property to take care of her, owns an automotive repair shop, and when he wants to get laid, Portland isn’t too far away. Not too shabby for the boy who spent his childhood getting bullied and feeling alone. Shane’s content to leave his past behind him…until one of his childhood tormentors comes back to town.

Maxwell Sullivan never planned to step foot in Last Chance again. Here, he was Maxwell, a teen who suffered in silence while everyone thought he had the perfect life. Now, he’s “Van,” the erotic artist and photographer. He’s only here to help his mom tie up some loose ends after his father’s death and to apologize to Shane. After that, he’s heading back to LA for good.

Shane never thought he’d have anything in common with Maxwell, but there’s a depth to Van that surprises him. Van knows what it feels like to be alone. He sees Shane in ways no one else does. There’s a shared connection neither can deny. Somehow, despite their rocky history, they get each other.

It’s not long before the two are so drawn to each other that they tumble into bed—sometimes with Van’s camera involved. Their chemistry in and out of the bedroom is undeniable. Except nothing is ever black and white. Shane can’t leave his mom and Van’s life is in LA. With two different lives pulling them in opposite directions, their picture-perfect ending might not be in the cards.

Breath Me In

Life is good for vampire Wilson North. His family left him well off. His job as an estate attorney is prestigious, well paying, and non-demanding. He’s gay and out and never had any issues being either. In fact, until the day he ended up beneath his car, bleeding out and only a few pints of blood from a sure trip to the Afterworld, life had never been a challenge.

When Will meets his destiny in the form of an enigmatic Magia named Garrick Forrester he finds the challenge of his life. Garrick’s gay but doesn’t live an openly gay life. Instead, he hides his nature behind his ownership of a BDSM club. The two men instantly know they are mates, but that doesn’t smooth the path to their bonding. Garrick wants Will but threats from his past convince him that the only way to protect his lover is to leave him. Shocked by Garrick’s ability to walk away, Will struggles to understand why his mate doesn’t want him. For the first time in Will’s life, something isn’t easy and he must fight for what he needs or give up his chance for happiness.
