Blurb: As far as Clay Carpenter is concerned, his abusive relationship with food is the best thing he’s got going. When a good friend starts kicking his ass into gear, Clay is forced to reexamine everything he learned about food and love—and that’s right when he meets troubled graduate student, Dane Hayes.

Dane Hayes doesn’t do the whole monogamy thing, but the minute he meets Clay Carpenter, he’s doing the friend thing in spades. The snarky, scruffy bastard not only gets Dane’s wacky sense of humor, he also accepts the things Dane can’t control—like the bipolar disorder Dane has been trying to manage for the past six years.

Dane is hoping for more than friendship, and Clay is looking at him with longing that isn’t platonic. They’re both positive they’re bad at relationships, but with the help of forbidden desserts and new medication regimens, they prove outstanding at being with each other. But can they turn their friendship into the love neither of them has dared to hope for? Continue reading

Ride or Dye by Aimee Nicole Walker: Exclusive Excerpt!

Exclusive Excerpt from Ride or Dye

by Aimee Nicole Walker

“WHY ARE YOU FACETIMING me when you’re on vacation with your husband?” Mere asked me. 

“I’m not FaceTiming you; I’m FaceTiming Tori,” I replied. “I swear she’s changed so much already.” 

“You’ve only been gone for a few days, Jazz.”

“A lot can happen in a few days. She looks so beautiful in the little floral dress and baby pink cardigan we bought her. Kiss her for me.” 

“I will.” 

“Do it now.” I inhaled a deep breath like I could smell her lavender lotion and shampoo. “I want to watch.” 

“You need help,” Mere said. 

“This is news?” Gabe asked Mere when he joined me on the couch in our suite. He looked over at me and said, “I was concerned about what you were instructing someone to do so you could watch.” 

“Yeah, because you’ve caught me interacting with live webcam shows so many times.” 

“I thought maybe you got bored with me since my surprise outing was canceled due to the rain and went looking for some entertainment.” 

I saw in his eyes how disappointed he was that his plans were ruined, but I wasn’t. Discreetly making love with Gabe on our private balcony while the rain poured from the sky was the sexiest thing I’d ever done. The balcony had a roof on it, but the rain came in at the perfect angle to drench us good. “Best. Date. Ever.” 

“Um, guys,” Mere said then giggled. “How about you call back after you’ve worked each other out of your system.” 

“That will never happen,” Gabe and I said at the same time. 

“All the same, Queen V is waking up and searching out her next meal. I know you’re both enlightened gentlemen and all, but breastfeeding on FaceTime isn’t my idea of a fun time.” 

“Fine, but I want to be sure you’re giving Tori the kisses I’ve sent her each day. I’ll wait.” 

Mere giggled and placed a lingering kiss on Tori’s forehead. “That kiss is from your uncles, Josh and Gabe. They love you so much.” 

“Bye, Mere and Tori. We’ll chat later.” 

Mere blew me an air kiss before she disconnected. I leaned into Gabe, and he put his arm around me. “We’ve video chatted with our kids and Mere. Chaz is up to his armpits in edits, so I will only receive short replies from him until he meets his deadline.”

Blurb: In a world with little hope and no rules, the only thing they have to lose is themselves.

Rhys Cooper is a dead man. Cut off from the world since childhood, he’s finally exposed to the lethal virus that wiped out most of the human race. Now his only hope for survival is infection by another strain that might provide immunity. But it’s sexually transmitted, and the degradation he feels at submitting to the entire squad of soldiers that rescued him eclipses any potential for pleasure—except with Darius, the squadron’s respected, capable leader.

Sergeant Darius Murrell has seen too much death and too little humanity. He’s spent a decade putting plague victims out of their misery and escorting survivors to a safe haven he can never enjoy. He’d rather help Rhys live than put him down, so when Rhys can’t reconcile himself to doing what’s necessary to survive, Darius is forced to save Rhys in spite of himself.

But with each passing day, it looks less and less likely that Rhys can be saved. And that means that Darius might soon have to put a bullet in the head of the one person in years who reminds him of what it means to be human. Continue reading

Sinner’s Gin Now Available on Audible!

One of my most favorite people on earth just had her book go to audio.
Congratulations Rhys, I am so happy for you!

Rhys Ford

Sinners AudioSinner’s Gin is now an audiobook! It’s been released first on Audible and will be out on iTunes and Amazon in a bit.

It’s kind of a shock to hear someone reading what you’ve written. And kinda cool.

I’ve been listening to audiobooks during the plague because I tend to get cross eyed when I’m tired. They’ve been lovely and I’ve been enjoying them.

So if you’re into them and wanna hear Kane and Miki go at in in the comfort of your ears, grab a copy. I’ve listened to the sample. I really like his intonation.

Now, this is really a cool thing and so much of it is because of you guys. I thank you so so much for liking the series and the boys. Thank you for your support.

I’ve got to see what promo I could be running with this. *grins* And Whiskey and Wry will…
