Now in Kindle Unlimited! And may I say I’m as pleased as Punch

I’m thrilled to say I now have three books in Kindle Unlimited for KU subscribers to choose from. There are more planned, and I’ll let you know as that happens.

These books are – my very first MM debut novel, Stripped Bare; the angsty Saving Alexander, and a revamped version of Waiting for Rain, for which I have the rights back. This has been re-published as Doubting Hearts with a few small changes to the contents and a gorgeous new cover.

You can find these books on Amazon by clicking the universal links below –

Stripped Bare

Saving Alexander

Doubting Hearts

While I know this is purely an estimator, this amount below is more than I have earned with Dreamspinner and the old book, Waiting for Rain, in over two years. And this is ONE self published book, over 4 days only. I think I did the right thing, getting my rights back and re-publishing this as Doubting Hearts, new cover and all. It may not cover what I forked out for it yet, but I’m hoping it will soon.

Forever in Starlight is live :)

The latest and last book in my M/F Starlight series went live today. Hooray!!!! It’s been a long time coming but I feel that it’s the right time to get this last book out there and finish Bennett and Cassie’s story. They’ve been through a lot and they deserve their idyllic ending. You can read more about the whole series here.

 

The screen pilot I wrote for this series has also been selected by the Oaxaca Film Festival in Mexico to feature in their Global Script Challenge.

Cover Release- Forever in Starlight

#coverreveal #Starlight #newrelease #bookslaidbareblog
Some of you may know that I wrote M/F before I branched into M/M. The books were well received but as these were my debut novels, I didn’t enjoy a huge amount of success. I was a newbie and didn’t have the panache back them to understand what I was doing 😊 I like to think I’ve grown a bit since then, so my publisher and I decided that the time had come to release the third book in my Starlight series to finish off Bennett and Cassie’s story. This is a May-December romance, Bennett being ten years younger than Cass, and they meet under tragic circumstances. Bennett is an up and coming actor in London, and there are no prizes for guessing who inspired him 😊 It’s one of my two man crushes…

Cassie is successful business woman, independent and feisty. The stories are pretty action packed and there’s loads of excitement and intrigue, including a rather controversial scene which you can find out more about below on James Landrith’s website.

The Boroughs newsletter showcases the cover and the book too http://www.boroughspublishinggroup.com/…/july-2018-e-newsle…

I think most of my readers are M/M readers, but having said that, I don’t want to assume anything. I know some people love to read both genres and more.

Without further ado, this is the cover for my new release, coming on 30th August, that finally gives readers of the first two books the proper ending to the saga. There will be a book tour planned by Carol Fenton for this story, so watch her blog, https://www.facebook.com/BooksLaidBare/ for announcements of dates if you’d like to take part.

Girl Crush by T L Travis Book Tour

I’m thrilled to welcome T L Travis to my website and participate on her blog tour for Girl Crush.  It looks like a very interesting story and while I haven’t read any F/F fiction before, this certainly intrigues me….

 

Girl Crush is an erotic female romance novella that brings to light that one time…

The one time you found yourself questioning your so-called sexuality, potentially risking your friendship. What if the feelings aren’t reciprocated?

Confusion and pain brings them closer together, feeding from one another’s strengths and thrusting them into each other’s arms.

Are the risks of their new-found love worth the result?

This novella caters to adults over 18 as it does contain a high level of consensual MF (1 scene) and FF sexual encounters.

Title: Girl Crush

Release Date: May 26, 2017

Publisher: Encompass Ink

Genre: Erotic female (LGBT) romance

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35259348-girl-crush

 

 

 

Do you think that giving books away free works and why?

I think so, everyone likes something for free and it gives readers insight into what you write. Possibly drawing them in to read other musings you’ve written.

How has your writing evolved since your first book?

Very much so. I’ve perfected my technique and made it much easier for my editors.

What’s the one thing that has really surprised you since you started writing?

I’ve discovered my inner Mistress whom I didn’t know was there.

Are there misconceptions people have about your genre?

Yes, especially within the BDSM realm. There is a preconceived notion that BDSM is about abuse when it is the opposite. Any good Dom/Mistress knows their sub’s limits and always has their subs needs put first and foremost. BDSM is first and foremost about trust.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

I went to Houston to meet Piper Kay and Jas T. Ward, then to LA to meet Lily Luchesi. These are authors I work closely with and talk to frequently so to me it was very important to meet them face to face. I love them all!

 

Top 5 ways I like to spend my weekend

 Stay in my pjs all weekend – wait, I do that all week ?

  1. Work on our fixer upper with my handsome husband
  2. Catch up on my reading
  3. Cook, I love to cook and during the week my husband gets home too late for big meals
  4. Enjoy the great outdoors and all the Pacific Northwest has to offer

 

 

Our one year anniversary was fast approaching and I wanted to do something special for my Gem. She had never been to Victoria BC and I really wanted to show it to her so I booked us a vacation cottage rental with a water view. I needed this vacation to be special. We’ve come such a long way and overcome many obstacles that were thrown at us so we needed a way to decompress.

I booked the rental for a week and told Gem to pack her bag with warm comfy clothes, but to include something special for a night out as well. I wouldn’t tell her where we were going, just for how long we would be gone.

We got in the car and drove into Seattle to catch the ferry to Victoria. Gemma was in awe, she loved riding the ferries and her smile lit up my world. After securing our vehicle, we took the stairs to the café and ordered two cups of coffee and then made our way to the upper deck. Gemma stood at the bow of the deck, her sable curls whipping wildly in the wind but she didn’t care. She smiled like a kid on Christmas morning. I came up behind her, wrapping my arms round her tiny torso.

“Are you having fun my love?” I asked.

“Yes, of course. But I wish you would tell me where we’re going.”

“All in time my sweet, all in time.” I stayed with my arms wrapped around her, protecting her slender figure from the cold winds as we made our way through the sound, headed towards Victoria without a care in the world. Nothing mattered to me but her happiness, something I would do anything to secure.

It was too cold to stay on deck for this three-hour ride, so we went inside to cuddle up in one of the window booths.
“Liz, this is amazing. You know how much I love riding the ferry. I’ve never been to Victoria and I can’t wait.” The announcement had given away our destination, but not all the surprises I had planned for our week away.

I put my arm around her shoulder, kissing her cheek, “I promise you my love, you will not be disappointed.”

“Liz, you could never disappoint me. You hold the key to my heart.”

Her words still warmed me even though she proclaimed her love for me daily. This woman had become my world, and I hers.

Release Day Blitz – A E Via -Defined by Deceit

AE VIA Release Day Tour

 

Today I’m thrilled to welcome A E Via to my humble blog. A E, I have to say I LOVE your cover, very sexy and definitely draws me in. This book is going on my TBR list and will probably take preference over the others on the Kindle. The story of Llew and Shane sounds delicious.

I actually had a crush on a boy called Llewellyn when I was in primary school. We were in a play together and I said one line which I will always remember:

‘Come, Sam, let us run away. Then perhaps they’ll come and play.”

I have no idea what the play was about; it was a long time ago. I got to kiss Llewellyn on the the cheek 🙂 And hold his hand.

Anyway enough reminiscing….let’s get on with the actual reason for this blog post today. It’s Release Day!

DEFINED BY DECEIT

~ A.E. Via ~

M/M GAY ROMANCE CONTEMPORARY

Edited by: Tina Adamski

Cover Art by: Jay Aheer

PAGE COUNT –  300 pages

Release Date: March 27, 2015

DEFINEDBYDECEIT-JayAheer2015-finalcover

ABOUT THE BOOK

 Life isn’t always fair, and that’s something that Llewellyn Gardner knows about first hand. His life was on the fast track until one night of extreme passion changed everything.

Now eight years later, he’s still living with the aftershocks of that night. Everywhere he turns or runs, there’s another reminder. What the hell do you do when you try to drown your demons only to find out they can swim?

Shane Smith, Jr. owner of Smith Construction, could see the emotional turmoil within his new employee — it’s why he hired him. There was something about the gorgeous, misunderstood man with the overly expressive eyes that came to their small town with a past no one was willing to overlook. Shane could see the good in Llewellyn, and those eyes of his were a clear window to his soul. Shane wasn’t going to let the man live a future of solitude because his past had been plagued with deceit.

Llewellyn wasn’t sure what to think about Shane. After years of protecting himself from being tricked twice, he was now faced with worry again. What would happen to him if Shane didn’t believe his truth, and walked away? Llewellyn wasn’t sure he’d be able to survive being left alone. Again.

EXCERPT

“Thinking of going in? Or are you just gonna block the entrance?”

Llew turned at the sound of the sure voice behind him. Since he seemed to tower over everyone he looked down at the pretty brunette with dark brown eyes to match. “Um. Sorry.” Llew mumbled quickly moving out of her way.

“Well don’t be sorry shuga’, just escort a lady inside.” Llew didn’t blink as he watched the lady stalk towards him. Her full chest sat above an extremely narrow waist. It almost looked unnatural. She dressed and wore the amount of makeup that a grown woman would, but her smooth face and approach screamed her real age. She was jailbait if he’d ever seen one. Llew gave her a slight head nod and turned to leave when his elbow was hooked.

“I saw you in the general store applying for a job. You musta’ jus’ got into town, because if not I’d have known, honey. So you got kin here?”

Silence.

The laugh was an all-out immature giggle and it graded on his nerves. “Cat got your tongue, darlin’”. She moved in even closer and dragged a long red nail down Llew’s arm, tilting her head back to look up at him. “You want me to beg, huh? Come on now, handsome. Escort a lady to a movie… then maybe -”

“Maybe when he sees’ a lady… he’ll escort one.”

Llew diverted his attention away from the overzealous minx that was practically humping his leg and focused on the beautiful man approaching with another guy in tow. His voice wasn’t overly deep like his own, it was a smooth and melodic southern drawl. Like he could be a singer or a poet. He walked with an unhurried gait that was a mixture of ‘I’m in charge’ and ‘you’re on my time, not the other way around’, and Llew found it sexy as fuck. His tall friend chuckled behind him, moving away to purchase their tickets. Is he on a date? No, their demeanor definitely said ‘friends.’

“Mind ya’ own business Smith, Jr. I saw him first.”

Smith, Jr.

The man hooked one thumb in his pocket not the slightest bit fazed at the remark. But Llew was thrown. Was this guy actually gay or was she being a smart aleck? The man gave him nothing to go on. He moved closer towards them and Llew got a nice whiff of his spicy, bold cologne when a cool breeze blew his way. It was an interesting contradiction, because the man’s entire persona said ‘cool and composed’.

“Mosey along, Sallie Ann. Don’t make me ring ya’ daddy. He told me keep an eye on you while he’s gone and I agreed. He’d be rather put out if I didn’t follow through on my promise.”

She reluctantly let go of his arm, letting loose a long drawn out huff of annoyance. Llew didn’t bother watching her walk away. She was irrelevant. With his hands tucked deep in his pockets he eyed the man in front of him with a mixture of curiosity and wistfulness.

“Sometimes a person has gotta’ run interference with that girl. She’s usually not that bad but her daddy’s outta’ town, so ya’ know how young girls can be.”

Actually, not really.

“Hi. I’m Shane Smith, Jr.” he stuck out a large, calloused hand and it took Llew a couple seconds to process that he was going to touch him. Llew shook his hand, his mouth still closed tight as he watched the man’s eyes. They were light brown and full of humor and amusement. He immediately thought that this was obviously a guy who had little worries if any in life. Wait a minute…Smith….Jr. Is he the owner of? He let go of the strong grip on his hand and wished he’d been able to hold it a little longer.

“And you are?”

Llew swallowed before answering. “Llew.”

Those eyes twinkled again and dark brown brows rose up in question. “Llew…just Llew.”

It was a humiliation when a man hated to tell someone his name. But by doing so it meant that they would soon know who he really was. Know who he was classified as. He didn’t want this man to know that, god help him he didn’t. But lying wasn’t an option.  Fuck it. “Llewellyn Gardner.”

So many broke eye contact with him and Llew was more than intrigued that Mr. Shane Smith, Jr. was staring at him just as hard as he was staring back. He didn’t know why he was looking at him that way but he didn’t mind it.

“Now that’s a name.” Smith smiled beautifully.

Llew wasn’t sure if this guy was flirting with him or not, he’d been in a place where flirting didn’t exist for so long, he’d forgotten what it looked like…what it sounded like. The way Shane Smith, Jr. was smiling at him it sure seemed like it. Llew could imagine himself with a strong man like this. A man who was gorgeous but didn’t know it. Not overly done up in fancy digs, he was dressed like a working man but he wore that look well. He appeared simple but confident, like a man that followed his own counsel and was not easily persuaded. But Llew wouldn’t dare get his hopes up. As soon as word got out that there was a newly registered sex offender in their quaint little town, Smith, Jr. might be leading the lynch mob to run him out of there.

Queer Town Abbey ‘Is it Summer Yet’ Blog Hop

Hooray! It’s nearly Summer, or at least, the summer weather is almost upon us. So it was decided that a blog hop to celebrate and see the summer in was a great idea.

qta_is_it_summer_yet_blog_hop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to say I think one of my best summer holidays was time spent in Tunisia in 2008. We went to the El Hana Palace Hotel in Port El Kantaoui. I mean, how can having constant temperatures of 36 -40 degrees Celsius every day for two weeks, with only a little marginally less heat at night, be a bad thing? I’m not a heat person actually but I have to say, that as long as the pool beckoned, the gin and tonics were in plentiful supply and the sea breeze wafted over the amazingly azure beach and sea front, I was a fairly happy bunny.

Hotel Sea Front
Hotel Sea Front

The hotel we stayed in was superb, with air conditioned rooms, a most luxurious bathroom, and a constant supply of chilled water so we didn’t dehydrate. The days were spent out by the pool or at one of the lovely restaurants in the complex. The nearby Marina was a complete treat to see, with all the rich and gob stopping yachts that cruised in and out regularly, really showing you how the other half lived. My husband spent his days with a permanently chapped chin from drooling so much. Hot desert nights were exotic and exciting and we even got to spend the night at a nearby Moorish type castle watching a fantastic laser light show showing the history of Tunisia, complete with real horses and men in tunics on horseback with swords.

It was a simply beautiful place to holiday and I can highly recommend it.

 

 

 

 

And the most important thing of course- the ‘in pool’ hotel bar 🙂

Many a day was spent walking over the walkway from the shaded enclosure and then back out again with a cool beer or a frosty gin and tonic.

My Rogues Gallery

I am proud to say that I think I have some of the hottest men in my stories. In order of appearance, I have a cheeky hacker cum escort and a serious lawyer – Shane Templar and Matthew Langer from ‘Stripped Bare. In ‘Saving Alexander’ I have Alex Montgomery and Christopher Sage –  Alex is a romance writer just like me 😉  and Sage is an actor. ‘Worth Keeping’ boasts Owen Butler, an estate agent, (I know, not so sexy) and Nick Mathers, light house keeper. Then my latest release ‘Double Alchemy’ features Cade Mairston, a Water Sprite, and Quinn Fairmont, a Warlock. Quite a mixed bunch indeed. I think my Rogues Gallery is rather tasty.

SLOW BURN BOOK TOUR – SAM B MORGAN

SLOWBURNt

Slow Burn

Slow Burn is an M/M Contemporary Romance

BLURB:
Detective Douglas Brody has only ever known the life of a cop. Raised strict but fair by his police chief father, he joined the academy right out of school, climbed the ranks hard and fast, and now works homicide for the City of Charleston. The job is his entire life. For years it’s kept him happy enough to minimize the side of him that craves what he believes is wrong. When an accident on the job puts him temporarily off duty, everything in Brody’s world changes. He has to prove himself once more to be best cop in the department, all while dealing with Zack – his persistent, sexy, and out of the closet physical therapist.

Zack is big grins, floppy hair and tackles his job with the same full-blown enthusiasm he does everything else. When the “patient from hell” is thrown his way by another PT who can’t handle him, Zack is committed to achieving the impossible. His new patient is a head strong and hot as hell homicide detective, who oozes as much resentment as he does sex appeal. Any involvement with a patient, never mind a man who is so deep in the closet he can’t see light, is something Zack swore he’d never do again.

But Brody slowly proves too much to resist…

All about Sam B. Morgan

Sam B. Morgan writes contemporary gay romance with complex, complicated men. A love of travel means settings from small town South Carolina to Sydney, Australia serve not only as backdrops, but supporting characters in each and every book. Sam enjoys fast cars, slow Sunday mornings, hot coffee, and even hotter heroes.

Excerpt

He could work out a resting heart rate from this, listening to the strong thumps, quickly glancing down at his watch. Decent. Resting below sixty. Brody was fit. A lot more fit than he gave himself credit for. The muscles in his chest were defined, and that didn’t come from police work. He had to work out regularly.

The meat of Zack’s hand rested on his broad chest, fingers moving on the swell of his pectorals as they rose and fell with each breath. The stir in his shorts brought him back front and center to the fact that this wasn’t the best idea. Leaning over his very attractive and touch-phobic patient. Even if all he intended to do was see if the man could lighten up. Maybe even laugh.

He wasn’t laughing now. When Zack lifted his eyes to Brody’s, he was hit with the full intensity of stormy gray. Not filled with amusement anymore but with something else.

It sent heat down Zack’s spine and into his shoes. He wasn’t even listening to the beats, just frozen in place with the buds in his ears, fingers still pressed to Brody’s chest as they stared at each other. The humor of the moment fell away as Brody continued to stare, arms still folded behind his head, mouth set into a straight line.

Zack straightened a tad too sharply and tucked the scope around his neck. Pulling his face into a rehearsed, easy smile, he hid the heat thrumming in his veins. “Yeah. You’ll live.” He started backing toward the door and gave a lame salute that made him want to cringe. God he was such a spaz. “I…I’ll see you next week.”

He rushed to exit stage left, narrowly missing the doorframe on the way out.

~*~

Zack could be downright pushy when he went into healthcare-professional mode. Brody wasn’t used to being told what to do. The small voice inside him that rejoiced in response was the one he hated most. He clenched his eyes shut and relaxed his leg.

“Good,” Zack said, his voice low as he focused.

He scooted himself up, knelt down, and hooked Brody’s knee over his arm, placing one hand at the back of his thigh, the other on the front. Brody tensed everywhere. He didn’t mean to, he probably shouldn’t, but he couldn’t help it.

“Relax. Hey,” Zack said and didn’t say another word until Brody opened his eyes and met Zack’s gaze. “Relax. The cramp comes right back if you’re tense. Trust me.”

Brody nodded again because it was all he could manage. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust Zack. Oddly enough, he did. But he didn’t trust himself. He didn’t like being in someone else’s hands—yet he did. He wasn’t comfortable with the vulnerability, but he was. And the position he was in was more than a tad suggestive. Except, of course, to someone like Zack. Zack, who only saw physiology, muscles, and ice packs. Cramps instead of sexual tension. Charlie horses instead of thighs.

“Good,” Zack repeated as Brody relaxed.

Brody focused on the trees to his left and tried not to think about the man between his legs or the hands all over him. It made him wonder about the next time he could get out of town.

“Is this helping?” Zack asked.

“Huh? Oh…yeah. Thanks,” Brody answered without looking at him.

Zack didn’t say anything. Didn’t move. Didn’t seem to breathe.

Brody knew it was his way of making Brody either talk or look at him or pay attention. Drove him fucking nuts, but it worked. Brody turned his head to glare at Zack like a pissed-off delinquent, but when his eyes found Zack, Zack wasn’t looking back.

Zack’s gaze was somewhere below Brody’s waist, dragging along one thigh, then the other. His attention lingered there, and Brody felt it all the way through his skin. It wasn’t professional Zack checking out his alignment either. Far from.

Something different, something hungry flashed in the deep brown of Zack’s eyes. Brody felt a lick of pure heat drag up his spine and back down. Straight to his groin. He didn’t know what he did to make Zack meet his eyes. He didn’t flinch or gasp or do anything besides remain frozen in place. Still, Zack looked at him, his eyes weaving a tale that had nothing to do with physical therapy.

Grasping fingers, slick skin, entwined bodies, and the kind of intensity that hurt so good you’d want it again and again. It sparked between them and hung in the air, thicker than the midsummer humidity. Brody recognized the same lust that continued to torture him right there in Zack’s eyes.

MY REVIEW

5 STARS

Let me say first that I love this cover. Sexy and oh so tempting. And then of course there’s the story about the uptight, repressed but oh so damn sexy cop and his uber tempting Physical Therapist . I mean this is a match made in heaven.
Detective Douglas Brody is a tough and rough cop, comfortable in the only life he’s ever known. He’s in the closet, determined to make in the Homicide Department in Charleston. But when he injures his knee running after a suspect, he need some tender loving care. Enter the TLC in the form of out and proud Zack. He may be all relaxed, with floppy hair and a grin Brody wants to kiss off his face, but he’s one strong, determined, ‘take no BS’ man and it takes all Brody’s strength to resist the immediate physical reaction the other man stirs in him. Not to mention the fact what he begins to feel in his heart for the irreverent, warm and funny Zack.
This was such a heart warming and beautiful story. The way that Zack gets under Brody’s skin, and keeps trying no matter what, is testament to Zack’s persistence, and his caring nature. Brody is falling hard and no matter how much he fights it, he knows he’s going to fall. Hard. I loved Brody’s description of Zack as a moose, with his long legs, floppy hair, all limbs and body. That was really sweet and endearing and I chuckled every time I heard the word.
Zack is wary of Brody. He’s been someone’s secret before and there is no way he wants that to happen again. But he is smitten with the handsome cop, the loving man that he knows resides inside Brody’s prickly exterior. The give and take between the two is emotionally satisfying, hot as all hell and has some memorable sexy moments. I really felt for Zack when he got a call from his father, from whom he’s been estranged. The poor man’s heart was breaking after that conversation and the tender scene afterwards when Brody comes to get him…just heart warming.
And of course running through the story is Brody’s hunt for the killer that’s terrorising his city. Brody is a great detective and he has a mission to catch the man they call the Strangler. This introduces an interesting and entertaining sub plot into this story.
So this is definitely high on my ‘Must read’ list and in fact I’ll be heading over to see what else Sam B Morgan has written. Buy it, read it, savour it -enjoy it.
