Release Blitz: Hometown Christmas by Garrett Leigh + Giveaway!

Hometown Christmas by Garrett Leigh

Yani Nicolaou is sworn off love for good. After fleeing a bad break-up in London, the only blood, sweat, and tears he has left are for his gyro stall at the Christmas market. Rebound fling? No thanks. He’s sticking to one-night-stands. 

Ex-army vet Gavin Richie has even less capacity for romance. Managing a homeless shelter while recovering from injury keeps him far too busy. So what if he’s often alone? He’s content being single, or so he thinks until a chance meeting lights a spark he can’t ignore. 

Yani is the warmth and affection Gavin hadn’t known he was missing. As Christmas lights up the city, their lives entwine in more ways than one. Falling for each other is easy. Holding on is harder, unless a hometown Christmas proves their love can last longer than the festive season.

Honorary Blogger Jodi Payne: Soft Limits + Giveaway!

Honorary_Blogger_Post

Soft Limits

by Jodi Payne

Hello!

I’m Jodi Payne and I’m dropping in to tell you about the MCs in my new book, Soft Limits. Soft Limits is a prequel in the timeline of the Deviations Series that can be read at any point along the way, or as a stand alone as well. There are no spoilers for the series.

For those of you unfamiliar with the series, it’s set largely in a very formal gentleman’s BDSM club. The series centers around Tobias and Noah, a Dom and sub who are both members and whom are set up by Bradford, the owner of the club and one of the MCs in Soft Limits. The other MC is a young man named Nikki, and Soft Limits is about how they meet, and Bradford’s history, including how Bradford comes to own the club.

Bradford is very formal both as a Dom and in his personal life. Eccentric and fastidious, Bradford has high expectations of himself, his subs, and the other Doms at the club. He is so focused on the safety and well being of his members that he is completely caught by surprise when Nikki comes along.

When we meet Nikki, he is homeless and hungry and broke, unable to buy himself more than a cup of coffee. Bradford is instantly drawn to the need in the young man, which he recognizes very quickly is for more than just food. But Nikki is independent, sarcastic, rough around the edges… and Bradford finds his attraction to the young man confusing and frustrating.

Bradford is known for his signature calm and capable demeanor, and Nikki has a way of shaking that foundation like no one he’s ever known before. Nikki is very used to being independent and taking care of himself, but Bradford’s nurturing manner and warm welcome are very hard to resist.

We get to see how these two come to know themselves better through the eyes of the other, and how they both grow and change for the better.

Thanks for reading!

A Christmas Wedding by AE Ryecart

For Rory Kincaid marrying Jack, the youngest son of the aristocratic De Lacy family, on Christmas Eve, is a dream come true. Handing over the wedding planning to Jack’s mother, the strong-willed Lady Diana, is turning out to be more of a nightmare.

As their big day approaches, the pressure’s on and the strain is beginning to show. Announcements in society magazines, a guest list that’s growing and growing, and fittings for the best bespoke tailoring in London, it’s all a far cry from Rory’s humble upbringing. Piece by piece, Rory and Jack’s dream of a simple winter wedding is fading fast.

Rory is Jack’s everything. Sweet, kind, and totally adorable, Rory is all Jack has ever wanted. And what Jack wants most of all is to give the man he loves the wedding day of his dreams — and that means taking a stand against the indomitable Diana.

***Warning: this story contains two gorgeous men, a mountain of mince pies and cupcakes, a punk rocker Christmas fairy called Bunty, and a snowy Christmas Wedding.***

Exclusive Excerpt from Memoirs of the Human Wraiths Box Set

by F.E. Feeley Jr.

 

Objects in the Rearview Mirror:

He was immersed in red light as the brakes of the car that hit him were stomped. Pain seared through Alan as he tried to raise his head off the pavement. Blood ran from his nose and mouth, and he barely registered the screams of people telling the woman she had hit someone and to stop. As Alan lifted his head, he caught sight of the woman staring at him in her rearview mirror. The cold satisfaction in her insane clown eyes made him shiver. If you only knew I stood up to your husband for you and your kid, Alan thought as the red lights of her brakes turned white. He’d ceased to be a person and had simply become an object of disdain and disgust. He closed his eyes once more as the sound of squealing tires and screaming pedestrians filled the air… *** On Frederick Street, in Clay Center, Kansas, in the house he’d once loved, in a familiar room, in a familiar bed that hadn’t been slept in for almost three years, Alan opened his eyes to the sound of a gunshot…and then the nightmare began.

Audio Review: Fighting Instinct by Mary Calmes

Reviewed by Nikyta

Title: Fighting Instinct
Author: Mary Calmes
Narrator: Tristan James
Series: L’Ange #2
Heroes: Arman & Linus
Genre: M/M Paranormal
Length: 7 hrs and 25 mins
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: March 13, 2015
Available at: Dreamspinner Press, Amazon and Audible
Add it to your shelf: Goodreads

Blurb: Only a privileged few know L’Ange’s head of security Arman de Soto is a shifter, and even fewer know he’s been systematically killing off a pack of werewolves. The reason for this vengeance is a secret Arman trusts with no one, quite the opposite of his obvious longtime pursuit of the château’s overseer, Linus Hobbes. Despite Arman’s reputation as a loner, the only thing he needs to complete his life is Linus. Predator and prey just don’t mix—but Arman won’t give him up.

Linus has lived alone for more than seven years, sheltered at L’Ange under an assumed name and hiding secrets of his own, including his terrifying attraction to the most dangerous man he’s ever met. Arman knows Linus should be afraid of the predator stalking him, but Linus is still drawn to him like a moth to a flame, no matter how much he tries to deny his instincts. It’s not until Linus’s past and Arman’s crusade exposes their secrets and opens L’Ange to attack that Arman realizes waiting any longer is a risk he just can’t take. So he’ll have to take his quest to the source of the threat in a gamble to protect L’Ange, Linus, and any future they might have together. Continue reading

Exclusive Excerpt from Rules for Santa

by Susan Hawke

“How about we open presents and quit talking about my sex life with my son in the room? He doesn’t need to learn how he was made. If he didn’t figure it out in biology class, it’s too late anyway.” Davey lifted a brow in an expression that was scarily similar to the one Daddy made all the time. “Father dearest, if you think the kind of sex your having with your baby boy has anything to do with how babies are made, I think perhaps you’re the one who needs to revisit biology class. I mean, you can breed him all you want – but you two ain’t gonna be gettin’ no babies.”

Release Blitz: Nothing Special V by A.E. Via + Giveaway!

Nothing Special V by A.E. Via

Atlanta’s notorious narcotics task force is at it again. They are stronger, bigger, and better than ever. Especially when a city councilman sends RECON Marine Edwin Steele – who’s been blacklisted from his Oakland department – to join the team.

Steele was ready to hang up his shield. He was done fighting with bigoted bastards that couldn’t respect the job. He was good at fighting; he just needed the right team to fight with. When his uncle – City Councilman Rasmus Steele – shows him a video of God’s team in action, he knows right away it’s where his nephew belongs in order to restore his faith.

Steele was skeptical about his new placement, but when he meets God’s technology specialist/computer genius, “Tech”, he’s willing to give it his all, and he definitely shows and proves.

Tech is stunning. His sweater vest and khakis, a stark contrast to the blue-jeaned roughnecks he works with. A beautiful sheep amongst the wolves. Steel thinks there’s no way the brilliant man would be interested in a hardhead like him, but Tech has a few badass hidden talents of his own and manages to surprise him…surprise all of them.
