Day 14 – 30 Days of Christmas

We’re nearly to the halfway point of my annual giveaway event. Can you believe Christmas is that close already? Today’s giveaways start with the second of the Encounters series, Weylyn’s Gift. I love giving readers anything with Weylyn in it. He’s my all time favorite character. In this short story, Weylyn meets his match literally!

Joining me today are two very talented Ellora’s Cave authors. One of the things I enjoy most about being an EC author is that I’m in great company there! Today, I’ve got books by Jan Springer (who’s actually giving away her Siren book) and Tracey Kitts. Between those two and Weylyn, I think today’s winner may need to buy a fan or step out into the snow after reading all this hotness! I know that the readers are not alone when it comes to their growing TBB list. Mine is growing as well with all these awesome books up for grabs! Here’s some info on today’s books and authors.

He’s happy having encounters with whomever strikes his fancy and hooking up with best friend and occasional lover Drake Keating whenever possible. Then Drake sends him a gift in a plain brown wrapper. Along with the gift comes a magical woman and between the two they unleash the next phase in Weylyn’s wild sex life.

White-hot pleasure becomes addictive beneath Logan’s tender touches and his hard, muscular body. What Teyla never expected was to fall in love. Logan knows he shouldn’t allow the Pleasure Girl into his heart, but he also knows it’s too late because she’s already there.

Soon three desperadoes are whisking Teyla away on an exquisite journey into her hottest dreams and forbidden desires. When she learns they are members of the notorious Durango Gang, can she allow them into her life, or will she send them away forever?

Sex Symbol

Ellora’s Cave

M/F erotic paranormal romance



Lucy Harper always thought of herself as an ordinary woman, but she suddenly finds herself in extraordinary circumstances. Her sleepy hometown of Peace, Mississippi, turns out to be far from peaceful, what with shapeshifters, vampires and other departures from the “good ol’ Southern boy” stereotype cropping up. Her best friends are all hiding devastating secrets. Her ex-boyfriend is suddenly interested in making up. Her sexy new boyfriend is not only the hottest guy she’s ever met, he’s got some pretty big secrets himself, including what he really is and what he does—besides providing the best sex she’s ever had, that is.

And her new tattoo might be more than a picture of her favorite flower—according to the local werewolf pack, it’s a “sex symbol”. There may be a fight to the death over who gets to claim her as mate.

Multi-published author Tracey Kitts has been writing stories for her own entertainment since she was a child. Tracey has always been drawn to the macabre, with a fondness for anything with fangs. She writes what she enjoys reading in the hopes that others will enjoy her stories as well. Her main goal as a writer is to put emotions into words.

Today we go hot and heavy starting with the first of my Encounters series, Blood Play. Vampire Aiden Swann from Breathe Me In has a one night stand with a woman who turns out to be very special to him. This short story is a prelude to Aiden’s own book Quintessence which I’ll be writing in 2012. The two authors joining me today also have pretty hot books. Fellow EC author Karen Stivali offers up Always You and Passion in Print author Aliyah Burke has What the Earl Desires. That gives the winner a paranormal, a contemporary and a historical. Pretty much a smorgasbord of erotic romance! Here’s some info on today’s books and authors.

While he’s all Alpha, Aiden’s no Dom, yet he finds his time in Perdition no hardship due to a mysterious female vampire. Cadence O’Connor intrigues him and makes him hard as stone. He knows there’s no reason that a pure blood vampire like him couldn’t play with a mixed blood vampire like her, but Cade disagrees.

All Aiden needs to do is convince Cade that she’s no abomination and that everything she is, is everything he wants.

Always You

Ellora’s Cave

M/F erotic contemporary romance



When Shari discovers that her fiancé has been cheating on her, she lets the wedding go on according to plan, except while everyone else is at the church, Shari is heading to the airport to fly off on her honeymoon with her best friend, Jon.

Jon is only too happy to help Shari escape what he knew would have been an awful marriage. Plus he’s thrilled by the prospect of time alone with her in a tropical paradise. He’s always loved her and desired her as a lot more than a friend.

A steamy, romantic night on the beach turns into a whirlwind of desire as they take their friendship to multiple new levels of passion. But when Shari’s apologetic ex tries to win her back, she must choose between the life she thought she was going to have with him and the possibility of love with Jon.

Karen Stivali is a prolific writer, compulsive baker and chocoholic with a penchant for books, movies and fictional British men. When she’s not writing, she can be found cooking extravagant meals and serving them to family and friends, who never seem to mind the excessive quantities she tends to prepare. She attributes her ability to multitask to the fact that she rarely sleeps, which gives her more hours every day. Prior to deciding to write full time Karen worked as a hand drawn animator, a clinical therapist, and held various food-related jobs ranging from waitress to specialty cake maker. Planning elaborate parties and fundraisers takes up what’s left of her time and sanity.

Karen has always been fascinated by the way people relate to one another so she favors books and movies that feature richly detailed characters and their relationships. In her own writing she likes to explore the dynamics between characters and has a tendency to craft romantic love stories filled with sarcasm and sexy details.

Always You is her debut release, but there are more on the way. A second erotic romance, Long-Distance Lovers, co-written with Karen Booth will be available from Ellora’s Cave in late 2011. Her third erotic romance, Marry Me, will be released from Ellora’s Cave in early 2012.

Her women’s fiction novel, Meant To Be, and its sequel, Holding On, will be published by Turquoise Morning Press in 2012.

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.

Tingle Bells

Ellora’s Cave

M/M, erotic paranormal romance



Justin Clancy is counting on his new invention to make the holiday season bright for his financially struggling family. With a chime guaranteed to sexually arouse any adult, Tingle Bells are the perfect stocking stuffer – until a cruel hex turns those sexy sounds into ear-splitting croaks. Far more adept at practical sciences than witchcraft, Justin knows he needs expert help fast or the Clancys’ Christmas will go down the tubes.

Trust-fund-wealthy Ramon Ramirez is a private eye certified for metaphysical investigations. He’s also a long-time loner who wishes for connection. Sparks fly between him and Justin the moment they meet, and Ramon falls for Justin – and his whole family. But neither man is quite ready to give up his heart to the other. Ramon has to work on cracking his solitary armor, and the self-conscious Justin isn’t so sure his new man isn’t just slumming – or pitying him.

In the midst of grappling with an eccentric family feud, mangled bells and their own personal baggage, Justin and Ramon vow to make things rightŠand stir up a little magic of their own.

By day she’s a mild-mannered language teacher. But after hours, Mardi Ballou’s wild writer persona erupts and entraps her in bondageŠto her computer. Release comes only once she achieves her word count goal, at which point the maniacal chocolate monster will give her one sublime piece. And then she can spend time with her hero husband Lee, who gives great massages at strategic times. So Mardi writes what she knows- romances-hot and mainstream-for Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, NCP, Whiskey Creek, and Changeling. Also women’s fiction. Her most recent releases are, from Ellora’s Cave, Dark Venues, Sherry Amor, Soap Bloke, and Desert Destiny in e-book format and, in print, Long, Slow Ride in the Better with Age anthology and Perfect Pear in the Ripe and Ready anthology.

Paradise Found

Carina Press

M/M/M BDSM erotic contemporary romance



Paradise is just an illusion…

Or so Philip thinks as he vacations on exotic Anguilla. He should be celebrating the end of law school and the start of his successful career, but he’s tired of living a lie for his family’s sake. For just one night, he lets down his guard with two men he thinks he’ll never see again.

He isn’t the only one with secrets. For years, Cameron Drake has suppressed his need for dominance, afraid of hurting his lover, Mark Wilder. But when Cameron’s hand meets Philip’s ass, there’s no more pretending. Mark can’t face his conflicting feelings about the ménage; does Cameron want more than Mark can give?

The three of them may have been perfect together but consequences follow them back to their real lives. Will their desire for another encounter shatter the illusions they’ve built to protect themselves or clear the obstacles to paradise?

Hunter Raines leads a double life. By day, she works in a male-dominated environment as a professional proposal writer responsible for securing multi-million-dollar accounts. By night, she pens naughty tales of hunky men doing wonderfully sexy things to each other. Her coworkers think they’re the source of her inspiration, and she doesn’t have the heart to tell them otherwise.

Hunter is the author of numerous short stories and novellas, and she holds an Honors B.A. in English Literature. When she’s not working or writing, she can be found curled up in her library of more than four thousand books, or playing video games with her husband. Visit Hunter at

Day 11 – 30 Days of Christmas

Gay rom readers will be excited about today’s line up in the giveaway! My book is Tales of the Darkworld Book 6, Sunstroked. The story of Corey and Seth is one of my favorites in the series in part because it introduces us to vampire Will North who eventually introduces us to royal vampire Aiden Swann. The other authors taking part in today’s giveaway are Kaje Harper and Kay Berrisford. Like Karenna Colcroft yesterday, I’ve done a number of covers for Kaje. I always try to give her just what she’s asking for and she’s kind enough to ask for me every time. Both Kaje and Kay have amazing books to share with you today and Kaje’s is actually a print book, so you’ll have the best of both worlds with this giveaway, both ebooks and a signed print book. Here’s some information about the books and authors.

Sunstroked – Tales of the Darkworld Book Six

Pink Petal Books

M/M, wildling (fae)/werewolf, erotic paranormal romance


When wildling Corey Green discovers his mate is Seth Dylan, a tough as nails, dour werewolf from the McCallan clan, he thinks his life is set. However, Seth’s not out and doesn’t know if he wants to be. A pivotal sexual encounter between the men has Seth running scared and leaves Corey broken hearted. The men meet again nearly two years later and this time Seth’s out but Corey’s dark depression is about to send him behind the Veil of the Jewel Box to the fae world. Seth’s determined to make up for running out on Corey, but the wildling’s sunny disposition has gone so dark it may be too late for them to build a life together. With love on his side, Seth sets out return the sunshine to Corey’s soul.

Warning: Contains two hot gay men who love sunshine, sex that makes the plants and trees grow, and a big bad wolf who will do anything to win the man he loves.

Author’s Note:  The Tales books up to Common Ground (#5) can stand alone, but read together provide the reader with a comprehensive view of the characters and their family dynamics. With this book (#6), the series takes a turn toward each book being less stand alone. You can read Sunstroked without the others but there will be things you may not understand if you’ve not read Common Ground or Hot Water or Fire Season. Common Ground in particular is key to Sunstroked, most especially the epilogue.

Unacceptable Risk

MLR Press

M/M erotic paranormal romance



Simon Conley was born a werewolf, making him one of a tiny minority in a sea of vanilla humans. The safety of the pack lies in absolute secrecy, sometimes violently enforced. In a species where pack-members are born and not made, being gay is considered a perversion. So when Simon falls in love with a human man, he’s twice damned. Even his Alpha’s grudging tolerance may not be enough to shield him from the hatred of the other top wolves. Then his lover Paul stumbles across pack secrets Simon was sworn to keep, and if the pack finds out, they may both end up dead.

Kaje Harper grew up in Montreal and spent her teen years writing, filling binders with stories about what guys like Starsky and Hutch really did on their days off.  Serious authorship got sidetracked by ventures into psychology, teaching, and a biomedical career.  And the challenges of raising children.

When Kaje took up writing again it was just for fun.  Hours of fun. Lots of hours of fun.  The stories began piling up, and her husband suggested it was time to try to publish one.  And MLR Press accepted her first book, Life Lessons.  Kaje now has several novels and short stories in print.  She currently lives in Minnesota with a creative teenager, a crazy little omnivorous white dog, and a remarkably patient spouse.

Bound For the Forest

Loose Id

M/M erotic paranormal romance



Ex-soldier Brien forces Scarlet, a sexy young thief, to lead him into a forest realm of magic, sex, bondage and blood. Can they discover their true feelings for each other before the forest spirits enslave them both?

This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements, dubious consent, male/male sexual practices, ritualistic sexual practices, ritualistic impalement, sex in partly shifted tree form, violence, voyeurism.

Kay is a freelance historical researcher, who realized it was even more entertaining to make stories up and add a ton of fantasy, sex and BDSM fun. She loves writing stories set in any time and place where she can indulge her love for research while imagining two hot guys getting it on, but has a particular passion for fairies and English folklore. Her first novel, Bound for the Forest, was published by Loose Id in September 2011.

She lives in Hampshire, UK, with her beloved ‘other half’ Chris. When they aren’t both madly working, they enjoy drinking wine, visiting castles and gorgeous countryside, and stalking cats and greenfinches. WEBSITE

Three Times the Scandal

Ai Press

M/F/M/M menage, Georgian historical romance



When you’re a dutiful, dependable and desperate woman… sometimes falling into the arms of a gorgeously sinful rakehell really is the only way out. Better yet, make that three gorgeously sinful rakehells… Fortuna Allenthorpe is so repulsed by the man to whom her parents have engaged her that she takes the only available way out, and flees into the night with notorious rakehell, Giles Dovecote. Giles is a vocal advocate of free love, and he and his debauched friends the Darleston twins, are soon vying for Fortuna’s attention while introducing her to all manner of sexual delights. Convinced that her tattered reputation will prompt her fiancé to call off the engagement, Fortuna is troubled to learn that Sir Hector is still set upon their marriage. It seems he’s more interested in her impressive inheritance, a ruby necklace known as the Star of Fortune, than he is in her errant virtue. What’s more, he’s prepared to destroy her family to ensure he gets exactly what he wants. Suddenly, Fortuna’s only means of escape is to make a more agreeable match. How difficult can that be, when she’s head over heels for Giles, and he’s already sworn to help her? There’s just one problem-Giles’s deep-rooted belief that marriage is nothing more than social slavery. Past mistakes weight heavily on his conscience, but can he really sit back and condemn the woman he loves to a hellish match?

About Madelynne: I grew up in the North-East of England, a bleak but starkly beautiful place, that I still love to visit. I now live in the West Midlands, with my partner of 15 years and our two adorable children, who frequently bear an uncanny resemblance to Charlie & Lola.  Originally, I wanted to be a Forensic Scientist, and I have a degree in Biology & Chemistry. Somewhere along the way, I got sidetracked, first into Parasitology and Malaria research, and then into writing.

The writing part began in 1994 after a friend found the Black Lace novel I was reading and suggested I give it a go. I sent off for their guidelines, and the result, my first novel, A Gentleman’s Wager (Black Lace) was completed in 2001. However, I had to wait until 2003 for it to finally appear in print. Since then I’ve written four other novels for Black Lace, Passion of Isis (2005),  Dark Designs (2006), Broken Angel (2008) & Phantasmagoria (2008), and have had short stories appear in several anthologies. More recently I’ve had work published by Total-e-Bound, Pure Folly (2009), and Samhain, Enticement (2010).

When I’m not writing, or playing mum, I’m generally putting together props, plot and costume for live roleplaying events (LRP), which I run with my partner. A hobby that also allows me to show off my theatrical make-up skills and flounce about in period costume. WEBSITE
