Exclusive Excerpt from Body Parts and Mind Games

by Jude Tresswell

Morning in ‘Cromarty’, a much-loved home in the Durham hills. Cooking odours drifted through the kitchen, up the stairs and out of the open windows. They reminded Phil of the smell from one of Warbridge’s less-inviting cafes and he wrinkled his nose in protest. He looked critically at the heap of greasy protein that Mike described as ‘a proper breakfast’ and sat down to a bowl of porridge and a thick slice of wholemeal toast, thinly spread with margarine. Low fat.

“I can see you lookin’ smug,” said Mike, “but you don’t have to sit with your bum on a bike for the next six hours. You said you’re not workin’ today or tomorrow.”

“Keep eating that stuff and you won’t be working tomorrow, either. You’ll be on a drip in one of the wards,” Phil retorted. He was a consultant surgeon at Warbridge General Hospital, a forty minutes’ drive away. Mike worked in Warbridge too, as an examiner for the Institute of Advanced Motorists—for short, the IAM. Mike laughed and began to tuck in.

A tall, heavily tattooed, bare-footed man entered the sunny kitchen: Raith, Phil’s husband.

“Oo! That looks tasty. Can I have a bit?” 

Mike slapped the hand that was about to steal a slice of fried bread. “Get your own!” he said.

Before Raith could complain, the fourth member of the quad came into the room. It was Ross, Mike’s partner, and he was brandishing a letter.

“Finally!” he exclaimed. “McAllisters. They’ve agreed to sell us the quarry.”

Ross had plans for the quarry. For a long time, he had wanted to clean it up, install a ramp and steps, and erect an eco-friendly workshop and display area in the quarry bottom. There wasn’t much spare, flat land in Tunhead itself. The cobbled lane between the houses, known simply as The Street, rose steeply and beyond it were wild moors. Although neither Mike nor Phil nor Raith shared his enthusiasm, they knew the quarry was a danger. What’s more, they had their own reasons to see it cleared; the previous summer, Raith had nearly died there. They had plenty of money. They were willing to support Ross’s big ideas. 

“So, as it’s celebration time,” said Raith, “can I have a mushroom?”


Raith took two. Being greasy, they slipped out of his fingers and onto the floor.

“Are you intendin’ to pick them up?” asked Mike. “Cos if you’re not, I might strangle you with one of your ribbons.” 

Raith’s hair was waist-length and often adorned with ribbons and bows. He ignored Mike’s threat and, for answer, swiped a tomato and asked, “What do you think we’ll find down there, Ross? Body parts?”

“Parts of my last bike, more likely,” growled Mike, smartly forking the remaining tomato. “Didn’t your mam tell you not to play with men with guns?” 

“Didn’t yours tell you not to talk with your mouth full?”

Phil, who didn’t wish to be reminded of the previous autumn’s events—Raith, held at gunpoint in the quarry, Mike, racing to save him on his bike and wrecking it in the process—turned the conversation back to Ross’s letter.  

“What exactly do McAllisters say?” he asked, so Ross poured himself a cup of coffee, and began to furnish the details.

But there are many types of body parts. Just a few weeks later, Raith was wondering if Phil still fancied his.

Adore by Ella James: Exclusive Excerpt!

Exclusive Excerpt from Adore

by Ella James

His fist tightens around my shirt, and finally, I allow myself to look up at him. His face is hard. His eyes are fire. His body’s heat burns through his clothes, warming mine through the starched poplin of my dress shirt. His smell fills my head—sweet detergent and a bite of spice.


My heart gives a hard kick, and my vision fuzzes at the edges. For a leaden moment, time stalls. Possibility sprouts unbidden, twisting through my heart so that I’m nothing but the sharp ache of my desperate needs and pitiful-eager intentions.

I would give anything.

And it would end me.

I haul air into my lungs. Lock my hand around his wrist and squeeze so hard my fingers tremble. And I lie. I’m a liar, so it should be easier to say it.


I see his jaw tic, see a flash in his eyes that could be regret or pain. He says, “I know.”

His eyes shut like he’s in prayer. Then he sinks down to the floor beside me. His hand finds my cock. Bliss streams through me as he rubs my erection…squeezes.

“I see how bad you don’t want me. You don’t want me hard enough to hurt.”

Magic & Mirrors by L.M. Brown: Exclusive Excerpt!

Exclusive Excerpt from Magic & Mirrors

by L.M. Brown

Lucius gazed down at the still blindfolded Harry and smiled. He wondered when he had become so attached to his would-be assassin. Even though he had given his word not to bring up Harry’s profession, he had to ask the question that had been tormenting him for days.

“Harry, would you ever consider giving up your life of crime?”

Harry raised his hand towards the blindfold, but Lucius stopped him. “Leave it, you’re less jumpy when you can’t see me, or rather not see me.”

“I don’t mean to be,” Harry said. “It’s just odd to only see you in mirrors.”

“I suppose it must be. Are you going to answer my question?”

Harry sighed. “I’m not trained to do anything else. If I don’t earn my keep as an assassin, I’ll starve.”

“You could learn a trade,” Lucius suggested. “An honest one.”

He didn’t know why he was pushing the issue when it was clear that Harry was perfectly content to continue on his current path. Perhaps it was because he could see the good in the man whose bed he currently shared, and he didn’t want to see his life end on the scaffold. 

While he had promised to pardon him for all his crimes, he had no doubt that without other options, Harry would soon commit more and he would come to a sticky end. That was the last thing Lucius wanted. He had got to know Harry during their journey and he liked him more than anyone else he had ever met. 

“Or I could offer you a position in my kingdom, once I get it back again.”

Harry snorted. “Doing what?”

Lucius thought of Prince Aiden and Robert. It was clear that even though Robert was a commoner, he had found a place in the royal household and was respected and happy with his husband. Lucius knew better than to raise with Harry any suggestion of a similar arrangement for the two of them. It was far too soon to think of marriage. Yet the words were out of his mouth before good sense could stop them.

“We could wed.”

Lucius didn’t know what he had expected Harry’s reaction to be, especially since he hadn’t thought this through at all. He would have hoped for something better than gales of laughter. 

“I mean after I escape from the mirror world and get my life back in order,” he clarified. “And I’d have to sort out the legalities regarding my other marriage, but I’m sure that can be resolved.”

Harry continued to chuckle and shake his head. He even took off the blindfold to wipe away his tears of mirth. 

“It wasn’t that funny,” Lucius muttered. 

“Oh it is,” Harry replied with another guffaw. “Can you even imagine the looks on the faces of your people if you announced your marriage to a man hired to assassinate you? They’d lock you away before you could rustle up a priest.”

“Well, I wouldn’t draw attention to your former career.”

“You mean my current career?”

“I know what I meant. You wouldn’t be an assassin if you married me.”

Harry sat up, dislodging Lucius from where he rested against him. “I’ll always be an assassin. My face is on wanted posters, and you know as well as I do that the ceremony wouldn’t make it past the does-anyone-object part.”

Against All Odds by Elle W Silver: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from Against All Odds

by Elle W Silver

Jamie wanted Riley to kiss him again so much; he couldn’t pay attention to anything at dinner. Ben had said something about needing to go back to Bello Locus again and so they were all going. Jamie would have preferred somewhere they could be alone, but he could wait a little longer, couldn’t he?

Jamie was a virgin, another thing his illness wouldn’t let him experience. But he’d been kissed a few times, all of which paled compared to the brief encounter with Riley. He hadn’t wanted him to stop, had hoped they would go further. But both Ben and Riley were reluctant to touch him too much. They wanted to, that much was clear, but they were just too afraid to push him further away. 

In the car, on the way to Bello Locus, Jamie sat between them as they told him about the friends they wanted him to meet. Jamie snuggled up to Riley, placing his arm on Riley’s chest, hoping they’d pick up where they’d left off in the office. Riley took his hand, even played with his fingers for the duration of the drive, but didn’t kiss him. 

Jamie met Adam, the bartender behind the tasty signature cocktails from last night. He met Mark, Mikey’s brother and Caster, Ben’s brother, the King of the Vampires and Riley’s best friend. They were all so glad to see him, even if only Caster had been there the day old-Jamie died. 

He grew more frustrated when Mark and Caster followed them to the V-VIP area they’d had all to themselves last night. His frustrations lessened when Liam and Johnny joined them, excited when Adam made them their signature drinks. 

“This guy is so good. What is in these?” Johnny sounded like he’d already had a few wherever they’d been.

“He’s told no one,” Mark answered and Jamie couldn’t believe how much he looked like Mikey. He was older, that much as for sure, but they were almost impossible to tell apart. Though now that he thought about it, Mark’s hair was thicker. 

They soon filled the rather large area with questions, laughter and all kinds of noise as everyone got to know everyone else. Jamie placed his hand on Riley’s thigh. He had only meant to steady himself as he moved further up the couch to.

But Riley covered the hand with his, drawing it further up his thigh. He leaned over to he was close to his ear, whispering, “I’m on to you, Sweetheart.” 

Jamie kept his hand where it was. Good, he wanted him to know exactly what he was doing, maybe then he would kiss him. 

You just need to ask, Ben’s voice in his had startled him so hard, he choked on the sip he’d just taken. 

Ben rubbed his back as he caught his breath. He’d forgotten about the mind reading thing. 

I didn’t read your mind, Mi Precioso. I can feel how much you want him to kiss you. 

You can?

Tell me I’m wrong. You want all of them to go away so it’s just us. 

Jamie blushed, lowering his head, but not before he saw Ben’s smile. 

If I didn’t think I’d embarrass you, I’d kiss you in front of them. I’ve been dying to kiss you since the moment I saw you.

Riley leaned over again, whispering in his ear, “You wanna go home? We can if you want to, they won’t mind.”

Say yes. 

Jamie nodded, taking Ben’s advice and before he knew it Riley had made their excuses and they were leaving. As expected, Liam and Johnny wanted to stay, but they would be just fine. 

As soon as they were in the car’s privacy, Riley’s lips found his. Jamie was unprepared for the kiss he’d been longing for. But he recovered fast, latching on to Riley’s arm. He lost himself in the kiss, moaning when Riley’s tongue found his. 

Jamie felt Ben’s hand on his thigh, his voice in his ear, his breath heavy, “You’re so sexy together.” 

Riley broke the kiss and captured Ben’s lips. Jamie didn’t expect the simple act of the two of them kissing to be so arousing. Ben’s moans mixed in with his, Riley’s hand finding his hair, just as Ben’s squeezed his thigh. 

Riley pulled back and then moved back into the seat, taking Jamie with him so that Jamie straddled his lap. Ben moved further back, occupying Jamie’s space, so close their foreheads were touching. 

Ben’s thumb rubbed Jamie’s wet lower lip, “I’ll never forget our first kiss.” 

Riley rubbed the back of his thighs, making him wish they were at home, naked and in bed. 

“You were looking at me, just as you are now,” Ben’s thumb moved to his upper lip, “So hungry. And, I felt it too. Your arousal making me want you even more.” His face moved closer, close enough that their lips brushed when he spoke, “Can you feel how much I want you now?” 

Riley kissed his neck, causing Jamie to moan his answer. He kissed a trail down to his shoulder and then back to his ear, “Close your eyes, Sweetheart and feel how much Ben wants you. Do you feel it?”

Ben’s mouth swallowed his answer. He wasn’t sure which one of them closed the tiny distance between them first. All he felt was the overwhelming need to kiss Ben and then it was happening. The kiss was far more intense than the one he’d just shared with Riley who maintained his assault on his neck. Jamie hips moved on Riley’s lap as the kiss grew into an exploration, his cock seeking relief. His clothes were not helping.

“Hold on to me, tight” He heard Riley say, and he obeyed. 

A second later, he broke the kiss when his breath caught, a foreign sensation invaded his body and he felt almost upside down. When he opened his eyes, he was still on Riley’s lap, with Ben still sitting close to him. But they were at the mansion in what he assumed was the master bedroom.

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.

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.

In This Bed of Snowflakes We Lie by Sophia Soames: Exclusive Excerpt + Free Download!

Blogger_Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt from In This Bed of Snowflakes We Lie

by Sophia Soames

Everyone is cheering, hastily moving up on the sofa so bums can find seats, the kids excitedly wriggling around on the floor, and baby Lottie once again gets placed on Oskar’s lap. He doesn’t mind. He doesn’t mind at all.

“Babies are good for the soul. Did you know that it is a medically proven fact that having a baby in your arms will lower your blood pressure and calm you down? However tense or anxious you may be, you will automatically direct some of your oxytocin stash towards the baby to ensure the baby is safe and loved. The body is quite amazing, don’t you think, Oskar?” Erik’s mum has squeezed herself down between Oskar and Uncle Asbjørn, who is almost bouncing up and down with excitement, holding a giant black bin liner in his grip.

“Really?” Oskar stutters, but he thinks she may have a point as he pulls Lottie to his chest, sniffs her hair, feeling a little bit silly as he does it, but he can’t help himself. He likes it. He likes it almost as much as the fact that Erik’s head is leaning on his shoulder again. It’s comforting. Safe. And, if Oskar is very honest with himself, it does funny things to his stomach. Like the butterflies that flap around in there whenever he looks at Erik. Not that there is much fluttering room left after everything Oskar has stuffed in his mouth since breakfast.

“She likes you too, Oskar.” Emmy laughs and throws herself on Holger’s lap. “And honestly, it’s nice to have all these other people to help entertain her. Gives my arms a break.”

Silence!!!” Uncle Asbjørn hollers, and everyone sits up straighter, giggling nervously. The children on the floor all cover their faces in anticipation.

“Thank you!” He continues, “Oskar, since you are our newest addition to the family, let me start by apologising. You have done nothing to deserve this.” He bows his head, and everyone laughs, including Oskar, because to be honest, Uncle A looks so excited that he will probably combust if he is not allowed to go on in peace.

“Oskar, I spent my entire working career dressing people, styling people for formal occasions and events. And now, when I am retired, I am finally allowed to have some fun. And you lot very kindly allow me to indulge in getting back at you for all the pranks and grief you give me throughout the year. So, the yearly tradition continues as I, the great Asbjørn Hansen, stylist to the stars, get to dress you all for Christmas dinner.”

He does a little bow again, as the family cheer and roar.

“Last year we were all dressed as Christmas Stormtroopers, except Mum and Dad who were Princess Leia and Darth Vader. It was bloody brilliant. We will have to show you the photos.” Elise is squealing with laughter.

“The year before we were all characters from Frozen. I loved that. I have worn my Elsa dress to parties. It’s just gorgeous.” Emmy sighs, all dreamy, whilst Linus actually looks up from his phone.

“My Olaf costume doesn’t fit anymore. Such a shame. It was absolutely epic.”

“So, what on earth have you got planned this year, Uncle A?” Erik actually looks a little worried. Fidgeting slightly under the cushion he has firmly wedged on his lap.

“Well, you have all been awfully brilliant this year, so I thought I would be kind. I read somewhere about this thing called ‘Furries’.”

“Fuck,” Emmy blurts out. “Can I impose a total Facebook ban, please. No photos anywhere.” And Elise slaps her over the head.

“No swearing in front of the kids.”

“It is all going on my public Insta, I absolutely insist! Now, back to Furries.” Uncle A continues, his giggles threatening to tumble out of his mouth with every word, holding back laughter as Holger is about to explode into a knitted Santa, and Geir is burying his head in Elise’s back.

“I have decided, that for this year we should all be comfortable for Christmas Dinner, so we are all going to be Furries. And before you drag me off and shout at me, we are not going to be the adult variety of Furries. There will be no X-rated action in these suits. Let me indulge you, my darlings, into the super-soft wonder that is animal onesies.”

“Onesies were kind of in three years ago, Uncle A,” Linus sighs.

“I know, young man, but Uncle A can do whatever he likes. So, suck it up and get dressed.” Uncle Asbjørn laughs and starts throwing out neatly wrapped parcels around the room.

Oskar has laughed. He has laughed a lot in his life, but he has never laughed to the point of feeling like he is about to throw up all over the baby on his lap. Because, seriously, Erik’s Mum is dressed as a giant unicorn, complete with a horn on her head. And she is clearly loving it, dancing around the room with her husband, who is dressed like a giant bear. There is a strange looking raccoon, a giant koala, Elise is a squirrel, and they are all in hysterics trying to figure out what on earth Holger is, whilst Geir is a spotty dog, and Linus is looking remarkably smug in his jet-black gorilla outfit.

It’s Erik though. Erik who stands there in his giraffe onesie, looking like he should be on a catwalk in Milan. He looks pretty amazing, just standing there taking in the chaos around him, whilst everyone else is wiping their eyes and trying to gather up the masses of wrapping paper on the floor.

“So, we have to wear this for dinner?” Oskar asks as he unfolds the soft white fabric on his lap, which Lottie is trying to get her teeth into. Lottie, who Oskar has quite masterfully managed to dress in her ladybug onesie. She is already trying to get one of the antennae in her mouth, the hood on the onesie half covering her face as she tugs and drools and squeals.

“Nope.” Linus smiles. “The rules are, you pretty much have to live in whatever Uncle A dresses you in for the rest of Christmas. Rules are rules. If you are part of this family, you pretty well must live with the fact that you can’t leave the house until after New Year’s, because you are probably dressed up as something weird.” He laughs evilly at Oskar. “Good luck with that, Mr Cat!”

“Remember that year when we were all dressed up as cartoon superheroes? It was bloody hilarious!” Erik’s dad is walking around in his bear suit, like it’s the most normal thing in the world, whilst Oskar places Lottie on the floor so he can slide into his suit.

Oskar is now dressed as a cat. A giant, white, soft cat, and Emilia is jumping into his arms shouting, “We are almost twins, Oskar. I’m a tiger and you are an arctic big cat! Like a polar cat!”

And suddenly it’s just a little heavy. A tiny bit too much. A bit overwhelming as he hugs Uncle A, and high-fives Ludwig in his racoon onesie, whilst still carrying Emilia around with her arms tight around his neck.

He needs a breather. Just a little space.

He looks over at Erik. Erik, who is laughing and dancing baby Lottie around the room.

Erik, who is dressed like a giraffe and who Oskar wants to hug. He wants one of Erik’s hugs. His strong all-consuming hugs where his hands never stop moving over Oskar’s back, and his face is buried in Oskar’s neck. He is a little bit shocked at admitting that. That he likes it. That he likes it so much he is actually shaking a little just at the thought of stealing one. Of maybe doing what Erik had said. Tapping him twice on the arm and begging to be just taken away from here, just for a little while, so he can calm down. Remember who he really is.

Because, right now, he has no idea who Oskar Høiland is anymore.
