Blurb: Clay and Daniel fell in love as enlisted men during Desert Shield, but Don’t Ask Don’t Tell meant they had to keep it secret. After Clay’s convoy was ambushed, PTSD changed him, and their relationship ended in a horrible fight on Christmas Eve.

Twenty-five years later, they’ve reconnected on Facebook, and Clay finds out Daniel will be alone on Christmas Eve. Impulsively, he sets out for Daniel’s hometown of Gilead, Ohio—where Daniel is now the mayor—to surprise him with a visit. But a blizzard strikes and Clay wrecks his car. All hope of seeing Daniel is lost—until a mysterious old man named Nick offers Clay a ride.

The weight of past wounds and the scars of war might make their reunion awkward, but Clay is willing to take the risk to win back his lost love. Despite a lifetime of disappointing holidays, Clay hopes that this soldier is finally coming home for Christmas. Continue reading

GRL Blog Tour: Deanna Wadsworth – Can’t Wait to Meet Everyone at GRL + Giveaway!

GRL 2014 Blog Tour Banner

Can’t Wait to Meet Everyone at GRL!

by Deanna Wadsworth

Thank you so much, Blogger Girls for hosting me today!

My name is Deanna Wadsworth and I have been writing gay romance for six years. I have over a dozen titles to choose from, which range from erotic fairy tales to gritty historicals. If you would like to check out my books, some of them are on sale for only .99 cents on Amazon, like my three book fairy tale bundle which includes a gay erotic retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and Book Three of my sexy Christmas books A Gift for Santa which is also less than a buck.

I am so excited about GRL this year! This is my third time attending, and I am looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

Many writers are introverts, but if you are attending GRL, it will take you about three point two seconds to know that I am not one of them! LOL

I love to meet fans, talk books, and just have fun. You will find me laughing loudly somewhere, having a drink at the bar or bustin’ a move and raisin’ a ruckus on the dance floor—at both the main events and the After Hours parties. I hope all of you feel free to come up to me and say hi! I promise not to bite…..though I have spanked a few folks before. I swear they asked for it! LOL You know who you crazy cats are!

Any whooo…. Please feel comfortable to come up to me and say hello. I am bringing prizes and goodies that I can’t wait to share. I didn’t bother with the pre-order book sale nonsense, because frankly, I’m attending GRL to meet fans and make lifelong friendships with people like me and I didn’t want to make any extra work for fans. If you wanna buy my print book Easy Rider, there will be copies available at the main books signing on Saturday.

To celebrate GRL and my visit to the Blogger Girls, I am offering a FREE copy of my 1Night Stand book, Accidentally Beautiful, to one lucky commenter!


About Accidentally Beautiful

Accidentally BeautifulMartin Baird is perfectly content in his safe, predictable job as head concierge for Castillo Resorts, but when a handsome stranger whisks him away for a night of tropical escapades—first visiting an isolated gay bar then to a secluded beach where erotic delights await—Martin’s world is thrown upside down. He’s never met a man like Garret Fisher, but it seems he has been waiting for a night like this all his life.

Could something truly beautiful come out of this accidental meeting? Or was it really not an accident at all?

Available at: Amazon


If you would like to meet me, here are my scheduled appearances at GRL:

The Fantasy of Romantic Fiction

There are new gods under different moons,  men too gorgeous to be rock stars, and Santa’s elves with candy flavored cum!

About Deanna Wadsworth

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.


Buy Deanna’s books at Dreamspinner Press, Decadent Publishing or at any reputable eBook seller.

Blurb: The name’s Lio, and I’m a cupid working for the Gay Division of the Inter-Dimensional Association of Cupids. An Aztec god, whose modern name, Ethan, doesn’t make him any less scary, just busted me shooting a closeted human with a gay lust arrow. I might find him sexy with all those tattoos and piercings, if I didn’t have a rule against getting it on with other supernaturals—especially ones working for the Straight Division. Now, to save my butt I’ll have to strike a bargain with this tough god. But what I didn’t see coming was my little wager not only risks my career, but places my broken heart completely in Ethan’s hands.

A part of the “A Valentine Rainbow” set of 14 holiday stories. Continue reading
