Day 7: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013

30Days-2013

Our winner of yesterday’s books is Jill P! Congrats!

The books I have for you today are a little bit different than your usual MM or MF books. My book is Common Ground, which on the face of it is MF. However, the farther you go into the book the more curious you become about this character named Weylyn who is a bi-sexual werewolf and his mate who is also bi-sexual. The book is actually a menage a quatre set inside of a MF. Whew!

To add some more fun to the mix I’m joined by Nona Raines with a transgender book and Amanda Young with a MM novel. All very hot, exciting stuff!

Blurb:

Werewolf Sair McCallan escapes the confines of her brother’s pack with the help of a mated werewolf couple who believe in open sexuality and relationships. With Weylyn and Keir Randall, Sair experiences freedom in all things for the first time in her life. When she meets her mate, she’s shocked to find he’s a boring, broody vampire. Uptight Marius Granville has his staid and orderly life completely shattered by the arrival of his bloodmate, a beautiful werewolf who steals his heart and expects him to join in her kinky play with the Randalls. Marius is forced out of his hum drum existence and opens himself to new sexual experiences to please Sair. As her new mate strives to give her everything she needs, Sair battles internal demons that threaten their fragile new relationship.

Warning: This book includes sex on a washing machine, a make out session ala From Here to Eternity, sex between best friends (F/F), double penetration of a female (oh, baby!), and the best blowjob in the world (M/M) all within the confines of the hottest ménage a quatre the Darkworld has ever seen.

Garrett has fallen on tough times. Once a construction worker, he now depends on the desires of others to feed his little brother and keep a roof over their heads. As one of the many rent boys at Chicken Ranch, Garrett lives in constant fear, torn between making enough money to survive and getting busted for doing something illegal and immoral to pay the bills.

Miller is a workaholic with a chip on his shoulder. It isn’t until his beloved Grandma passes away that Miller dares to temporarily return home to the town he despises. Once there, he faces a surprise inheritance that causes more problems than solutions and the man he left behind to pursue his dreams.

Their reunion comes with an abundance of complications and old feelings. Bitterness and anger swiftly turn into desire and a rekindled love that threatens more than their hearts. Things take a turn for the worst when Miller provokes a threat to Garrett’s custody of his little brother. Having already lost Garrett to familial obligations once, Miller fears they’re doomed to repeat the past, only this time Garrett will be the one who’ll walk away.

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?

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.
