Once a celebrated athlete, Guy Hoisington fell from grace and into a bottle. For years, the citizens of Cattle Valley went out of their way to avoid the drunk lecher, but one man, Shane Rendell, not only dated Guy during a brief period of relative sobriety but fell in love with him before he was hastily cast aside.

He wakes from a coma to discover he’s run an innocent man off the road and has a life-changing injury. For the first time in a very long time, Guy is able to look at himself through sober eyes, and he hates the man in the mirror. In one stupid move, he’s lost everything.

Shane has tried for two years to move on with his life after falling for the town alcoholic, but when he learns of Guy’s accident, he rushes to the hospital. Although the entire town may hate Guy, Shane is determined to prove Guy hasn’t lost everything.

Redemption by Viki Lyn and Vina Grey: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from Redemption

by Viki Lyn and Vina Grey

Uri pulled back from Michael’s grasp. “You can’t ask this of me.”

He couldn’t believe Michael’s complete lack of compassion. It had taken him years to rouse any interest in life. At firsthe’d blanketed his grief in fury. Slowly, his anger died. He was too mentally exhausted to hold on to his rage. Now all he felt was indifference.

Michael’s voice penetrated Uri’s thoughts. “You are our most gifted empath. And that’s not all—”

“To hell with that. We’re all empathic.”

Michael dryly chuckled, rolling his eyes at Uri’s cuss word.

Angels rarely gave in to their anger, but Uri had too much at stake to agree to the Vox Dei’s request. Didn’t Michael know how much it’d crack the fragile ice around his heart if he were to see Razi again? Since his lover’s death, and that’s how heregarded it, he’d burrowed deep within the Libraire, researching ways to bring Razi back to him.

He often wondered how far he’d go—what dark arts he might employ. Years later, he still hadn’t found a solution.

Book Review: The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick

Reviewed by Heather C

20619717Title: The Red Sheet
Author: Mia Kerick
Hero: Bryan Dennison
Genre: M/M Young Adult, Contemporary
Length: 57,000 words
Publisher: Harmony Ink Press
Release Date: February 21, 2014
Available at: Harmony Ink Press, Amazon, All Romance eBooks & Barnes and Noble
Add it to your shelf: Goodreads & Booklikes

Blurb: One October morning, high school junior Bryan Dennison wakes up a different person—helpful, generous, and chivalrous—a person whose new admirable qualities he doesn’t recognize. Stranger still is the urge to tie a red sheet around his neck like a cape.

Bryan soon realizes this compulsion to wear a red cape is accompanied by more unusual behavior. He can’t hold back from retrieving kittens from tall trees, helping little old ladies cross busy streets, and defending innocence anywhere he finds it.

Shockingly, at school, he realizes he used to be a bully. He’s attracted to the former victim of his bullying, Scott Beckett, though he has no memory of Scott from before “the change.” Where he’d been lazy in academics, overly aggressive in sports, and socially insecure, he’s a new person. And although he can recall behaving egotistically, he cannot remember his motivations.

Everyone, from his mother to his teachers to his “superjock” former pals, is shocked by his dramatic transformation. However, Scott Beckett is not impressed by Bryan’s newfound virtue. And convincing Scott he’s genuinely changed and improved, hopefully gaining Scott’s trust and maybe even his love, becomes Bryan’s obsession. Continue reading
