Blurb:  Rome, 68 A.D. Novius Senna is one of the most feared men in Rome. He’s part of the emperor’s inner circle at a time when being Nero’s friend is almost as dangerous as being his enemy. Senna knows that better men than he have been sacrificed to Nero’s madness—he’s the one who tells them to fall on their swords. He hates what he’s become to keep his family safe. He hates Nero more.

Aenor is a newly-enslaved Bructeri trader, brutalized and humiliated for Nero’s entertainment. He’s homesick and frightened, but not entirely cowed. He’s also exactly what Senna has been looking for: a slave strong enough to help him assassinate Nero.

It’s suicide, but it’s worth it. Senna yearns to rid Rome of a tyrant, and nothing short of death will bring him peace for his crimes. Aenor hungers for revenge, and dying is his only escape from Rome’s tyranny. They have nothing left to lose, except the one thing they never expected to find—each other.

This title is part of the Warriors of Rome collection.

Lisa Henry Week Review: Tribute

Reviewed by Heather C

1Title:  Tribute
Author: Lisa Henry
Heroes: Kynon & Brasius
Genre: M/M Historical
Length: 61,391 words
Publisher: Loose ID
Release Date: July 19, 2011
Available at: Loose ID, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and All Romance eBooks
Add it to your shelf: Goodreads

Blurb: When the fearsome warlord Brasius chooses Kynon as his tribute, Kynon tells himself it’s the price of peace, and that he can endure anything. If his slavery will save his father’s kingdom, then he will be a slave and submit to every indignity the warlord and the senate of Segasa require of him. He can live with the shame; it’s the mind-blowing pleasure that frightens him.

But the warlord wants more than a tribute who will respond eagerly to whips and bondage. The warlord might just want the man underneath: the prince, the soldier and the tribute, if Kynon can figure out who that is. On an enforced journey of self-discovery, Kynon learns that being the warlord’s tribute isn’t just about submission. And, to be the tribute that Brasius wants him to be, Kynon will have to defy all the traditions of Segasa and risk the wrath of the senate that really holds his chains.

Publisher’s Note: This book is primarily LGBT m/m but contains one or more scenes of m/f sexual interaction. It also contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: strong BDSM theme and elements, dubious consent, violence. Readers with a history of rape or sexual abuse may find elements of this story disturbing.

Lisa Henry Week Review: Dark Space

Reviewed by Nikyta

1Title: Dark Space
Author: Lisa Henry
Series: Dark Space #1
Heroes: Brady Garrett/Cameron Rushton
Genre: M/M Sci-Fi
Length: 216 Pages
Publisher: Loose Id
Release Date: December 4, 2012
Available at: Loose Id, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance eBooks and Kobo
Add it to your shelf: Goodreads

Blurb: Brady Garrett needs to go home. He’s a conscripted recruit on Defender Three, one of a network of stations designed to protect the Earth from alien attack. He’s also angry, homesick, and afraid. If he doesn’t get home he’ll lose his family, but there’s no way back except in a body bag.

Cameron Rushton needs a heartbeat. Four years ago Cam was taken by the Faceless — the alien race that almost destroyed Earth. Now he’s back, and when the doctors make a mess of getting him out of stasis, Brady becomes his temporary human pacemaker. Except they’re sharing more than a heartbeat: they’re sharing thoughts, memories, and some very vivid dreams.

Not that Brady’s got time to worry about his growing attraction to another guy, especially the one guy in the universe who can read his mind. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s just biochemistry and electrical impulses. It doesn’t change the truth: Brady’s alone in the universe.

Now the Faceless are coming and there’s nothing anyone can do. You can’t stop your nightmares. Cam says everyone will live, but Cam’s probably a traitor and a liar like the military thinks. But that’s okay. Guys like Brady don’t expect happy endings.

Honorary Blogger Lisa Henry: Thanks for Reading!

Honorary_Blogger_Post

Thanks for Reading!

by Lisa Henry

I’m so excited to be the spotlight author here at The Blogger Girls for July.

For those of you don’t know me or who haven’t read my stuff, I guess there are a few things I’d like to tell you.

First: me! I live in tropical North Queensland, Australia. I still can’t figure out why, since I hate the heat. But it’s winter at the moment, so it’s lovely. Winter translates as “any weather where you have to turn the fan off and wear socks”. I live in an old house. Possums break in at night. I’ve given up trying to stop them.

In my day job, I work as a police dispatcher. Sometimes this is incredibly stressful, and sometimes it’s incredibly boring. Often, those two things happen within the same ten minute period. It also means I work a lot of odd hours, which I actually don’t mind. It gives me lots of time to write.

Firstly, I’ll write anything. Contemporary, historical, sci-fi, fantasy. Cops, cowboys, or guys with regular jobs. Any and all levels of heat. And kink. As long as the story has room for two guys to get it on (and which story doesn’t?) then I’ll write it.

Secondly, I tend to skew dark. This means there will be angst, and a lot of it. My guys have to work for their happy endings. There are no free lunches on my watch. Seriously, if I’m not physiologically torturing a character (or, you know, actually torturing one) I start to get the shakes. As a writer, I am a complete sadist. But as a person, I promise I’m not that scary at all.

The darkest book I’ve written would be Another Man’s Treasure, with my co-author the awesome J.A. Rock. The most light-hearted book I’ve written would be Mark Cooper versus America, also with J.A. Rock. I write a lot with J.A. Sometimes I like to imagine that readers are trying to figure out which one of us is good twin and which one is the evil twin. We are both the evil twin.

I also write with Heidi Belleau. My next book – Bliss – is co-written with Heidi, and is due out from Riptide on 18 August. It’s a bit of a spec-fic dystopia, with added evil mind control. Not for the faint-hearted!

My first book was Tribute, released back in 2011. I think I’ve grown as a writer. I hope I have! It feels like I’m learning something new every day. Since Tribute I’ve written what feels like a lot of books. But also, I’ve had the time of my life. I’ve always loved to write, and discovering there are people out there who actually love to read what I write is the best feeling in the world. So, to everyone out there who has ever picked up one my books, thanks for reading!

About Lisa Henry

Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily endings.

She lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.

She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.

She shares her house with too many cats, a dog, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.

And don’t forget you can follow me on Facebook, or Twitter, or Goodreads, or check out my website. I’d love to hear from you!
