Blurb:

Red dragon Emily Carrington found her mate in black dragon Vahid Delrey, but misunderstandings, painful secrets, and distrust keep them apart. Emily thinks Vahid doesn’t want her. Vahid thinks Emily is a stuck up snob who could never truly love him. Both dragons hide crippling secrets from their pasts as their pain at being apart escalates. Emily falls for the strong, sexy black dragon and hides her need of him behind an icy facade. Vahid longs for Emily to need him but can’t bring himself to mate with such a cold woman. When Emily’s secret pain fetish threatens her life, Vahid must decide whether to save her or let her self-destructive ways rid him of the mate he never thought he’d love.

Warning this book contains one asshole hero, one cold as ice heroine, mating in shifted form in a haystack, a suicide attempt, spanking, anal play, BDSM and it’s all needed to create a very happy ending.

Blurb:

Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters…

It takes a monster to hunt one, and for Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, she’s the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural live in a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and indicates someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking.  Partnering up with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be a challenge as dangerous as the prey she hunts.

When the trail points back to the foundation which warped Raine’s magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head.  Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder and betrayal to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.

But Micah’s comfortably in the closet, while Dix loves his carefree life. He might have responsibilities, but he’s never once denied who he is, and he needs his lover to do the same. When Dix moves to Illinois to be with his ailing mother, Micah’s left with a single choice: follow his heart to the future or live in the past.

Sex, Love and Immortality

Mythology is full of fascinating details of Ancient Greek society, unique scenarios, interesting characters and their lives which culminate in powerful moral lessons on life, love and war. Unfortunately, the stories don’t always end on a good note for those involved. It’s time to shake things up and give a few of the heroes and heroines a chance at a happy ending.

Myths with Hephaestus, Castor and Pollux, the Cyclopes, Marsyas and Zeus are extended and the men find themselves face to face with love.

Their days and nights are full of glorious sex, some with multiple partners and some with bondage, but there’s one question left unspoken. Will their quests for happiness be long lasting or will someone leave once a problem arises?

In the first book of an Adult Paranormal-Romance, Gary Logan finds out that his late father had a tryst in Europe at the end of WWII and Gary travels to Prague, CZ to see if he can find the spot where the picture was taken. Surprisingly, he meets a younger lady who knows far more about his late father than seems possible. Thus begins a story of guardian vampires who protect women, children and other innocents from evil vampires/human criminals/& evil politicians seeking to have total power over the people. In order to remain with the two ladies he falls in love with, Gary petitions to be changed to one of the guardian vampires. There he combats a force of evil vampires added by his full vampire son, Adam along with elements of the armed forces of The Czech Republic, the British Army and Royal Marines as well as the Armed Forces of The Russian Federation trying to keep conventional, nuclear and biological weapons out of the hands of vampires, whom they believe to be only human “terrorists.”

Continuation of the Immortal Relations story, Immortal Relations Love and War amps up the action to a fever pitch while toning down the explicit content of the first book. Responding to the illness of a good friend, Gary, his son Adam, now a general serving in NATO, and Adam’s commanding officer Stephan (who has also elected to become a vampire to be with the love of his life) go to see Field Marshal Kolukov whose assistance was invaluable in destroying the evil vampire gang before they could steal the biological WMDs. Thinking they will surprise him with their offer of change to save him from his terminal illness they are surprised by his foreknowledge of why they have come. But they aren’t the only ones to be surprised as terrorists from Chechnya decapitate the government of Russia as a prelude to invasion of Siberia by troops from Communist China seeking to steal Russia’s oil production, gold and other mineral riches as well as land for its massive population explosion. Our good vampires must act quickly to keep an invasion from becoming a nuclear war. Compounding the problems are terrorists hired by OPEC to destroy Russia’s providing of cheaper oil to Western European countries and twin ecological disasters, the failing 25 year old cap over the still radioactive Chernobyl Reactor and the leaning reactor at Fukushima, Japan, who some scientists have warned its collapse could result in an Extinction Level Event (threatening all life on Earth).

Continuation of “Immortal Relations, Love and War,” having saved mankind from several potentially catastrophic events our good vampires discuss the pros and cons of coming out to the human world in order to form a strong symbiotic relationship. It is decided that the human’s record of not reacting well to fears of the unknown would bode ill for the guardian vampires; however, forces are at work to discover who it was that thwarted Communist China’s capture of the financial windfall that Siberia would have been. Washington was promised continuation of Chinese loans to allow the Marxist regime in Washington to continue buying the votes to keep them in power. With reprisals on their agenda, Washington, as has been common with the current regime, mistakenly believes they can simply murder the man they think is most responsible with the aim of poisoning or shooting him and his compatriots if possible. Acting before they know the facts is a common fault in the Marxist regime and things have spiraled out of their control by the time they realize they are dealing not with a few human patriots but a group of overwhelmingly powerful, if peace-loving, vampires. Yet another threat to Earth appears and the unwillingness to respond puts the leadership abilities of those in Washington under another cloud,  things don’t go well for Washington.

Day 3: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013

30Days-2013

The winner of yesterday’s amazing group of prizes is Emily W! Yay! For today I have two of my favorite authors on board and we’ve got some great books for you!

My offering today is Hot Water, the second book in the Tales of the Darkworld series. This book is my sentimental favorite in this series. Colin Granville is an exceptional hero. Angst-free and in control of his life, Colin is a hot, nice-guy hero who will capture your attention and, if you’re not careful, your heart! This book also introduces Corey Green to readers. Corey is Colin’s assistant and is a lot of fun. His story is told later in the series in Sunstroked. The last reason this book is one of my favorites is because arrogant and meddling Sean Antaeus gets punched twice! Ow!

Joining me today in the giveaway are Lizzie T. Leaf and Selena Illyria. I’ve known them both for years and had the pleasure of spending some time with Lizzie at RT a couple of years ago. Both of them are awesome writers and I’m so happy to have them participate again this year. Now, let’s get to the books!

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.

WishingonaBlueStarSmSince it’s an anthology kind of day, I thought I’d throw in one that I’m in. I know a lot of people have this book, but it’s free and if you don’t have it, you should get it! Wishing On a Blue Star features many great authors (and me!) in a free MM anthology for the late author Patric Michael. My story In the Light was one of five that Jessewave talked about in her review of the anthology. She called it “sad, dark and sombre” but “also funny as Grant and Wey laughed about their sexual escapades.”
