Release Blitz: Last Defense by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Last Defense by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey

Two men afraid to feel, have to make choices that could end up breaking down their defenses and leading them back to love.

Every time Max Van Hellren steps on the ice he knows it could be his last time. At thirty he’s past his hockey prime but he’s also hiding a life-threatening injury that private doctors warn could kill him. This is his last season, and there’s a chance he could lift the Stanley Cup after fourteen years in the NHL. He just needs to stay safe and healthy; difficult when he’s known for his heavy hitting and with a propensity for dropping the gloves and putting his body in the way of pucks to keep his team safe.

A one night stand with a sexy man was just what he needed, dangerous and hot, but what if it turned into more? Would he actually have to share the secrets he so desperately tries to hide?

Ben Worthington had it all. A fulfilling job running the CrossRoads Shelter, his loving aunts, and a husband that understood his devotion to animals. Then, the love of his life left him, succumbing so quickly to an unexpected sickness that Ben never had time to say goodbye. The violent loss scarred him.

Unable to move past his fears, he moves from lonely encounter to lonely encounter, slaking a desperate need that is eating away at him, but never making a connection that could lead him back into love. One night with Max makes him want more, but will giving into the temptation open the door to feelings he can’t contain?

Can these two broken men ever find a way to be together?

Poke Check by RJ Scott & VL Locey: Excerpt & Giveaway!

Poke Check by RJ Scott & VL Locey

One scorching summer in each other’s arms could never be enough.

Stanislav “Stan” Lyamin is happy playing for the Railers. The towering goalie is well-loved, respected, and making a home for himself even though that home only contains him, his cat, and his growing Pokemon trading card collection. Stan prefers it that way.

He’d given his heart to a man in a secret affair, and that man walked away, leaving Stan shattered. Now Erik is back in his life, and he has the same tumultuous effect he had on Stan’s heart as before. This time it’s not just a kissable mouth and sweet blond curls that Erik has brought to Harrisburg, there’s a soon-to-be ex-wife and a precious baby.

Despite the vow Stan made to hate Erik forever, he’s now finding it harder and harder to turn away.

Erik Gunnarsson’s dream had always been to play in the NHL, he just never imagined he’d land a contract with the Railers. Who would have thought that fate would put him on the same team as Stanislav Lyamin; the man whose heart he’d callously broken?

Secrets and lies had defined their summer relationship, and the choice that Erik made to end it all haunts him still. In the middle of a messy divorce and with a baby in tow, Erik finds himself back in Stan’s life. Now all he has to do is be the best dad he can be, prove to the team that he deserves the chance to stay on the roster and try his hardest to get Stan to forgive him.

Is it possible to persuade a man who hates you to give love a second chance?

In Wild Lemon Groves by Selina Kray

A telltale knock on a quiet winter night is a sound no husband wants to hear.

Sébastien Osaki has spent the past three years surviving the loss of his beloved Henry. When Seb lands in Amalfi, Italy, for their would-have-been tenth-anniversary trip, he’s haunted by the memory of the man he loved. Following Henry’s notebook leads him to some breathtaking coastal views but also right back to his despair. Seb’s there to get his groove back, not let the past wrong-foot him at every turn.

Enter Andrea Sorrentino, chauffeur, part-time pet whisperer, a Bernini statue in a soccer tee and tight shorts. From the moment Andrea picks Seb up from the airport, he knows just how to soothe Seb’s case of the sulks. But Seb isn’t sure he’s ready for Mr. Right Now, let alone a potential Mr. Right, in a part of the world where all roads lead back to Henry.

Can sun, sea, and eating your weight in pasta mend a tragedy-stricken heart? Will wine-soaked Amalfi nights and long walks through lemon groves work their magic on Seb’s wounded soul? Or will he slink back into the shell of his grief once his grand Italian adventure is over?

Release Day Blitz: Snow In Montana by RJ Scott + Giveaway!


Snow In Montana (Montana #4) by RJ Scott

montana-4-400An actor in the closet, a sheriff in love, and memories that won’t stay hidden.

Jordan Darby is known as the King of Christmas. The star of eight made-for-TV Christmas movies, the leading man who always gets his girl. Filming at Crooked Tree Ranch in Montana, in the ice and snow, Jordan is fighting to make a go of his new company and dealing with fears of exposure over one huge secret. After all, who the hell would buy into him being a romantic straight lead if rumors about him being gay were proven to be true.

Sheriff Ryan Carter is advising on the new movie being made at Crooked Tree. He hoped this would be one day of work and nothing more. Until, that is, he meets the hero. But while Jordan is sexy, he’s also very much stuck in the closet – everything that Ryan doesn’t need in his life. And then lust becomes part of the equation, and Ryan’s quiet life is thrown into turmoil.

Their story unfolds against the chaos that overtakes the ranch, with Adam regaining memories that terrify him and make him look at Justin differently, and Justin leaving the ranch to make things right. Only through trusting in love and friendship can Justin and Adam learn to look to the future instead of letting the past destroy everything. But will they ever see clearly enough to do that?

Ice by R.J. Scott and Chris Quinton: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Blogger_Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt from Ice

by R.J. Scott and Chris Quinton

There was no mention of the diamonds, but Greg read between the lines. All kinds of places to keep things safeimplied that Leon had hidden the diamonds. But had he managed to move them before he was killed? Had he told Boris about them? Or Julian, the owner of Laurels?

More research had uncovered the fire at Laurels, the ongoing renovations, and given Greg a possible entry to the site. Marie LaSalle and Mack had come through with enough to support his backstory, and Greg was supremely confident no one would find a flaw in his references, or the photos of his work, or the restored screens. They, at least, were genuine.

The last link to the jewels—finding the Mandineaus and their restaurant—had fallen into Greg’s lap, and he had flown into a foggy Heathrow with a plan of action, the tools, notes, the letters, and a whole lot of hope that he would find what he wanted.

His alarm sounded and he glanced at the time out of habit. Seven fifteen.

He gathered up the information and stuffed it back in the suitcase, then left the hotel. He’d get coffee and breakfast at the Laurels, or so he’d been promised, and then he could settle into work and use every minute available to track down the diamonds.


Well it would be easy if only Jon wasn’t there messing with Greg’s head, all gorgeous and growly and big.

Focus. Just focus. Diamonds. Always the treasure.


About Ice

28550515With millions in diamonds at stake, can Jon make Greg see that some things are not worth dying for?

Footloose adventurer Greg Drakowski used to live for the moment but these days shadows of grief and guilt cling to him. Recklessly following one lead to the next, Greg crosses oceans at the very hint of treasure, and doesn’t care that he rushes into danger.

This time his quarry is a cache of diamonds, hidden away decades ago. When the clues bring him to the ancient city of Salisbury, he knows he’s close to success.

Renovations expert Jonathan Ellis is part of Ageless Wood Restorations – three generations of knowledge and trade. Focused and hard-working, Jon finds value in recreating the elegance of the past with his own hands, and it will take something – or someone – extraordinary to break into his enclosed world.

When Greg drops into Jon’s lap he finds it impossible to refuse him. Even when the bad guy appears and Jon isn’t sure whom he can trust, he knows he has to stand by Greg, if only to save the idiot from himself.

About the Authors

Chris Quinton started creating stories not long after she mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of her parents and her English teachers. But she received plenty of encouragement. Her dad gave her an already old Everest typewriter when she was ten, and it was probably the best gift she’d ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web.

Chris’s reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy, writing mostly in the male/male genre. She refuses to be pigeon-holed and intends to uphold the long and honourable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of her ability. In her spare time [hah!] she reads, embroiders, quilts and knits. Over the years she has been a stable lad [briefly] in a local racing stable and stud, a part-time and unpaid amateur archaeologist, a civilian clerk at her local police station and a 15th century re-enactor.

She lives in a small and ancient city in the south-west of the United Kingdom, sharing her usually chaotic home with an extended family, three dogs, a frilled dragon [lizard] and sundry goldfish and tropicals.

GRL Blog Tour: RJ Scott – Finishing Your Reading + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Finishing Your Reading

by RJ Scott

Thank you to Blogger Girls for hosting me today!

Getting to Chicago involves a 10 hour flight. Ten hours of sitting in the same place *boring*. I can’t sleep on planes, and there is a long gap to be filled between meals! I try reading, and I even had the cool thought I could write, but it just didn’t happen.

One thing that helped was the films on the small video player. Lots to choose from and at last I could start watching films that were on my *can I be bothered* list, and then stop them ten minutes in if I didn’t like them. Silver Linings Playbook was one of those films. It also meant I could re-watch films and fast forward them to the good bits. All the Chris Evans parts in Captain America, all the Chris Evans parts in Avengers Assemble (are you sensing a theme here?).

One thing I can’t bear to do is to give up on books. I think that if I am drawn to start a book, then I owe it to the author to finish it. Some books throw you into a story and you are gripped from page one, others are a slower burn. Some start with an established couple, some have the heroes not meeting until a third of the way in. Some are insta-love, some have love not even being mentioned until the last chapter. I want to give the author a chance to pull me in and I love the moment where the hook grabs me and hauls me in. I have only DNF’d (Did Not Finish) a handful of books.

Do you do that with books? How long do you give a book before it becomes a DNF. Do you give up on a books? Or, on the other hand do you have books you revisit and you know exactly where your favorite scenes are?


About A Reason To Stay

A Reason To Stay (Heroes #1)Sometimes the wars you need to fight are the ones you left at home…

When SEAL, Viktor Zavodny, left small town America for the Navy he made sure he never had a reason to return for anything other than visiting family. He wanted to see the world and fight for his country and nothing, or no one, was getting in his way. He fights hard, and plays harder, and a succession of men and women share his bed.

But a phone call from his sister has him using his thirty day down time to go home instead of enjoying his usual thirty nights of random sex and sleep.

What he finds is a mystery on the Green Mountains and the only man attempting to make sense of seemingly unrelated deaths. His childhood friend and first love… Lieutenant Aiden Coleman, Sheriff.

There were reasons Viktor left his home. Not least Aiden Coleman with his small town innocence and his dreams of forever. Now Adam and Viktor need to work together to save lives and prove there is a hero in all of us.

When it’s done, if they make it out alive, can Aiden persuade Viktor that he has a reason to stay? Maybe forever?

The sequel, Last Marine Standing, will be out October 8, 2014.


An Excerpt from A Reason To Stay

He scooted up so he was sitting on the pillows and watched, amused at the fact that the husband and wife team he had joined in with last night were getting hot and heavy right in front of him. She held out her hand, Anna or something. Viktor waved her away, and dismissing the need for a shower, he dressed and left the room.

“See you around, soldier!” the husband, Mark, shouted after him as he left the suburban middle-class home in Suffolk, Virginia.

“Sailor,” Viktor muttered. Then he pulled the front door shut and climbed into his Tahoe. The couple hadn’t been all that bright, but the husband was built just right for Viktor to get a hold of. Clearly they didn’t understand Viktor’s explanation of who he was when he was attempting to get the three-way. Typical.

He dialed his sister’s phone, and she picked up almost immediately.

“Viktor,” she stammered. Instantly Viktor was on high alert. He forced aside all possible worries and simply listened. “Ben had an accident, he’s in the hospital.”

“What happened? A car?”

“No. He was out on the mountain, found this morning. He’s unconscious, and he has a broken ankle, hypothermia, and a head injury.” She caught a sob. “What do I do? Why would he be out there?”

Viktor turned the key in the ignition and said nothing. On the mountain? That didn’t make sense.

“I’ll be there as soon as I can,” he said firmly. “Call me if anything changes.”

He didn’t want details. He just needed to get there.

The Blogger Girls Have Gone on a Blog Hop!


As reviewers, we don’t normally go on other peoples’ blogs and chat about ourselves (that’s for the authors, not us!) but a few weeks ago, RJ Scott had this scary idea about spotlighting a few bloggers on her site in honor of August being the anniversary of her first novel.

Honorary Blogger RJ Scott: RJ’s Author Mini-Tour + Giveaway!


RJ’s Author Mini-Tour

by RJ Scott

Welcome to my mini author tour, thank you to The Blogger Girls for having me… 😀

When I was at the UK meet I was told by readers on more than one occasion that they thought I just wrote paranormal, or I just wrote contemporary. Of that they knew about Texas, but had never heard of the Sanctuary series. So I came up wit this idea… highlight two very different books, or series, and add in some cool prizes and maybe readers might find something new from me.

The two books I have chosen are The Decisions We Make, and The Case Of The Cupid Curse (Book 1 in End Street, written with Amber Kell).

Amber Kell is my nemesis, sorry, that should have said friend. When we talked about writing together it was inevitable that the books we wrote would have humour laced through them as that is what our friendship is like. With a vampire called Bob, what else would you expect. The paranormal series currently consists of four books, with two more coming to complete the series. Sam is a human. Or at least he thinks he is. When he inherits a detective agency he resolves to only take on human cases, but when his first case involves the Fae he realises he may well be in the wrong part of town. When Bob shows up, all toppy and vampire-hot Sam doesn’t stand a chance. The world in these books is easy to follow, we deliberately kept the stories and characters clear and easy to follow, and made the romances burning!

On the other hand, you couldn’t get further away from paranormal than The Decisions We Make. This book was one of the first books I independently published and was originally penned as a Young Adult book. Then I realised it wasn’t just readers of young adult books that read Decisions and this book has quickly become one of my most popular books. The story of orphan Dnaiel, being thrust into the Walker family, and his journey to becoming the young man he knows he can be, is full of family references and hope. Jamie Walker is his best friend and becomes more when the two young men are leaving for college and realise that being together is worth every decision they need to make. With a supportive family, and a tragic back story, Daniel falls in love. A simple story of young love that overcomes all obstacles.


About The Case Of The Cupid Curse

Tags: paranormal, fun, adventure, crime

Sam Enderson is a human detective who inherits a building from where his Uncle used to run a detective agency. He finds himself working for paranormal creatures despite his resolve to stick with humans only. To supplement his income as a new PI Sam rents out rooms in the large house.

Bob is a vampire and turns up on Sam’s doorstep to rent a room. Sparks fly and Sam is attracted to the vampire despite himself.

Sam is cursed by a witch, and has two cases landing on his desk. Werewolves, annoying ghosts and a grumpy gargoyle are enough to drive Sam mad. But somehow in amongst all of this he has to find a missing fae and a missing shifter child.

About The Decisions We Make

Tags: family, young love, young adult, heart-breaking, hate crime

The Decisions We MakeDaniel Keyes is an orphan, fostered by the Walker’s. The product of a lonely childhood, he is thrown into the chaos of the Walker family and into the life of his new foster brother Jamie.

This story is the journey of Daniel and Jamie finding their place in the world. Through Jamie being a victim of hate crime to coming out to family and friends, there are many decisions the boys have to make before they become men.
