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.

sl_hissecondchance_coverinHis Second Chance

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.

ThrobbingVampireCockNow, to sweeten the pot I’m going to give away my version of TVC.  In my case TVC stands for Throbbing Vampire Cock, the name David Simmer II of Blogography gave to my vampire romances. He even made a little TVC cartoon. Isn’t he cute? I love him. Every time I see him, he makes me laugh. I can never thank Dave enough for that little cartoon!

BreatheMeIn_200Breathe Me In (This book was an Honorable Mention for the Best Gay Paranormal in the 2011 Rainbow Awards)

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.

Drawn together by destiny. Torn apart by self-doubts and fear. Two men on the cusp of a dream must set aside the lives they’ve always lived for a chance at a new and brilliant future.

Warning: This book contains virgin sex between a sexy self-sacrificing wizard who’s never been catcher and an angelic-faced vampire who’s never pitched, a BDSM bad guy with dark magic, a mysterious royal Acerbian, and a host of characters from previous Tales books who do everything from implode buildings to change diapers…all to help two reluctant heroes find true love.

Day Nine: 30 Days of Christmas 2016

30daysofchristmas2016I love this time of year. Readers seem so surprised that every day there’s another book or two to win. They almost seem afraid to come by. I wonder if they think they’ll find the giveaway is over or it’s not true. At any rate, there is always a winner during the 30 Days of Christmas and today’s winner of the Day 8 books is…Maggie Lane! WOOT!

Now, for Day Nine I have another new author you may not have heard of! Qeturah Edeli is a fellow Loose Id author and I guarantee you’ll like what she has to give away! I know I want to read it! 😉

Qeturah (said Keh-to-rruh) is a funny-talking unnatural blonde obsessed with bees. A translator, poet, and erotic romance novelist, Qeturah lives in snowy hinterlands most of the year.



qe_prickofthethistleHeartwood 1: Prick of the Thistle

Despite Lord Duncan Friseal’s surly disposition, William finds the heir to the wealthy highland thanedom of Faoltaigh irresistible. After Lord Friseal saves William from a fate worse than death, William grows obsessed with his penetrating fuck-or-kill gaze and aches to discover what lies beneath Lord Friseal’s great kilt. Lord Friseal appears ignorant of William’s affections, but no matter; William has dealt with his fair share of capricious men and it will be only a matter of time before Lord Friseal succumbs and gives him what he craves.

Lord Friseal realizes too late how dangerously attracted to William he is. He cannot resist the temptation of a man who knows exactly what he wants and where he wants it. Constrained by his station, clan, and religion, Lord Friseal must decide if his passion for a sensuous but traumatized Englishman is worth risking his family’s future and the fate of his immortal soul. Circumstances continue to thwart his swelling sentimentality as William proves to be emotionally distant for all his sexual appetite, and Lord Friseal’s intrusive houseguest, Moira MacKenzie, draws ever closer to the truth.

Does that book not sound delicious? Now, to sweeten the pot, I’m going to add a book to today’s giveaway! How does a little magic sound?

Bi-sexual wizard Randall Wise is the quintessential good guy. Still single at thirty, he’s never had a relationship or even a brush with love. Rand is convinced that good guys finish last at love and decides he needs to change if he’s ever going to find a mate of his own. Then he looks out his bedroom window to find that the sexiest guy he’s ever laid eyes on has moved in next door.

Brendan Thorne is gay, klutzy, and to his thinking, ordinary. At twenty-six, he’s got a baby face that makes men treat him as they would an innocent little brother. Determined to at least get laid, Brendan sexes up his appearance and finds his hot new neighbor ready and willing to do the dirty with him. The sex is amazing and both Rand and Brendan sense it’s the start of something more. But is it real love or just magic?

Available at Amazon Kindle Unlimited and in Audiobook.
