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

Caliban
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.

Narcissus
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.”

Vulcan
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…

Reviewer says: “Tinkers to Evans to Chance–What a Triple Play! The sex is phenomenal. You would be hard-pressed to find a better all-encompassing series than this one which needs absolutely no sequel to keep you interested. You are satisfied, if not totally out of breath.”~Bo, Amazon Review http://amzn.to/1jYVArc

Despite being scared of snakes, she’s named and claimed a garden snake as her own, calling it her personal legacy by naming it Memoir. Though the ground rules for Memoir is that he stays outside.

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?

Day 12 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Yesterday I had Liv Rancourt and Melissa Costa as my featured authors and today, I’ve got the winner of their books! Give it up for JenCW! WOOT!

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. Her nomadic lifestyle recently ended, when her redheaded Veteran husband (“Hooah”) retired from the military. They settle in lush Georgia (for now).

A professionally-trained concierge, she also worked as a public relations assistant and was a staff writer for a Japanese weekly. She has a master’s degree in Communication and Information Studies from Rutgers University and currently works—underpaid, but not underappreciated—at a Middle School.

Nadja is a member of Romance Writers of America.  She is a fibromyalgia warrior, a recovering insomniac, and a voracious reader.

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.

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. She is an unashamed fangirl and collects nerdy tattoos like she’s trying to prove it.

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!

Happy Holidays!

 

Day 11 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Whew! What a loooong weekend. I exhausted myself at the company holiday party.  I guess I wasn’t as ready to expend that much energy as I thought. I was pretty much useless all of Sunday. But I did manage to write this post! I wouldn’t forget to give away books, I promise! Yesterday we had books by Harper Jewel and Shane Morton and today I have a winner of those books. Big hand for Susana! YAY!

Now, I know I’m behind on contacting authors with their winners, so everyone just relax. I will be caught up by Wednesday. I just didn’t realize how much time edits for Christmas books and work on the holiday party were going to take out of me! But I will get those emails out Monday and Tuesday so winners and authors keep your eyes peeled!

For today, I’ve got two more new to me MM authors and I really think you’ll like both of them. Please welcome Liv Rancourt and Melissa Costa! Let’s check out the books they are giving away.

Vespers by Liv Rancourt

Thaddeus Dupont has had over eighty years to forget…

The vampire spends his nights chanting the Liturgy of the Hours and ruthlessly disciplines those unnatural urges he’s vowed never again to indulge. He is at the command of the White Monks, who summon him at will to destroy demons. In return, the monks provide for his sustenance and promise the return of his immortal soul.

Sarasija Mishra’s most compelling job qualification might be his type O blood…

The 22-year-old college grad just moved across the country to work for some recluse he can’t even find on the internet. Sounds sketchy, but the salary is awesome and he can’t afford to be picky. On arrival he discovers a few details his contract neglected to mention, like the alligator-infested swamp, the demon attacks, and the nature of his employer’s “special diet”. A smart guy would leave, but after one look into Dupont’s mesmerizing eyes, Sarasija can’t seem to walk away. Too bad his boss expected “Sara” to be a girl.

Falling in love is hard at any age…

The vampire can’t fight his hungers forever, especially since Sara’s brought him light, laughter and a very masculine heat. After yielding to temptation, Thaddeus must make a choice. Killing demons may save his soul, but keeping the faith will cost him his heart.

You can find Liv at: www.livrancourt.com

Melissa Costa writes character-driven fiction, and any genre is fair game. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading, anime, manga, gaming, theme parks, and board games with friends. She’s completely obsessed with pelicans, pirates, and everything about the sea! Living by the motto of trying all things twice, Melissa has jumped out of a perfectly good plane, swam with manatees, dove head first into Alice’s rabbit hole, and seduced classy ladies in 6 inch heels. A free-spirited bohemian, she currently lives in artsy St. Petersburg, Florida with her soulmate and their two, adorably needy cats.

Dream Infected

Brett, one of the few survivors of Sandman’s Dream, infecting most of humanity, is secretly in love with his best friend, Ivan. When Ivan becomes infected, will Brett be forced to abandon him to the Dream, or will he fight for one he loves?

Beaten Track Publisher:
