NEW RELEASE

Meet Birdy and Jaydon. A rather mismatched pair, but with Valentine’s Day around the corner, who knows what can happen?

When Birdy’s peacock attacked his bank’s Relationship Manager, his business problems took a turn for the worst, until they sent Jaydon Tyrell, and then everything started to add up just fine.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

Imaginative, creative, brilliant are some of the accolades Bradley “Birdy” Dobbs enjoys as the creator of top-of-the-line designer gin. Flighty, crazy, and irresponsible are also monikers used to describe him, mostly by the parade of Relationship Managers – read: death and doomsday business wazzocks – the bank sends over to Birdy’s company, Ori-Gin. When the latest number cruncher shows up with propositions Birdy can live with – and some he’s aching to try – Jaydon Tyrell becomes the most important member of Birdy’s flock.

Giant Giveaway, and a new release to make you lick your lips….

October is a busy month for me!! As well as the Men of London box set release, the third book in my latest series will also be out on October 22nd. This book is called Cover Me In Chocolate and as the title suggests, it’s rather edible…

#establishedcouple #friendstolovers #detective #intrigue

 

 

A STICKY, MESSY AFFAIR

A missing young woman, an abusive boyfriend, and a trail with dead-end clues have Clay Mortimer and Tate Williams of M&W Investigations chasing their tails. Not a position they often find themselves in, if ever. When an employee of the erotic chocolate shop in Fetish Alley disappears, the usual suspects don’t pan out, and Tate and Clay need to find the clue that’ll help them solve the case. When chocolate moulds of the missing woman’s body parts start being delivered and are accompanied by odd notes, the urgency to find her ratchets up. And through it all, Tate and Clay find all sorts of delicious ways to spice up their love.

Add this book on your Goodreads TBR list 

And then this is happening…

 

It’s almost here!! On the 15th October, there will be a special Men of London boxset – e-book and print version – released.

Because of Amazon’s pricing policy, the sets are split into two, each containing FIVE books. Pricing has been set for $9.99 for each of the e-book volumes and $17.50 for each print volume. It’s a steal 🙂

I don’t have the buy links yet, but if you keep an eye here you’ll see them added soon.

Along with these releases on the 15th, I’ll be running a HUGE giveaway where you can win a load of quirky things related to the MOL series. So far this goody bag has no less than 15 items in it and promises to be a load of fun for the lucky winner.

Release Blitz – The Blueridge Junction Boys by A.D. Ellis

NO ONE SAID LOVE WAS EASY. WILL THEY FIGHT FOR IT?

Title: Fight for It: The Blueridge Junction Boys

Series: The Blueridge Junction Boys 1

Release Date: October 3rd, 2017

Publisher: A.D. Ellis Publishing

Genres: Male/male romance

Goodreads:

What inspired A.D. Ellis to write Fight for It: The Blueridge Junction Boys

The Blueridge Junction Boys came about because of a couple different things.

First, I was playing with a small town called Blueridge. In my head, the three main characters were the Blueridge Boys. But, a thought struck me out of the blue that The BJ Boys would be so perfect as a little play on words in a male/male romance. So, I added Junction because of the railroad going through Blueridge. Voila! The Blueridge Junction Boys series was born and The BJ Boys became the official nickname.

As far as the stories for each individual book, I knew I wanted to play up some of my favorite tropes. Fight For It is the story of Micah and Cole. Micah is out, but Cole is not so I got to have fun writing a mechanic and teacher in this out-for-you story.

Can’t Fight It is the story of Levi and Jay (coming late October/early November.) This is one of my favorite tropes with opposites attract and May/December romance.

Bound to Fight is Cody and Kennedy’s story (coming mid to late November.) This has a leather daddy and enemies to lovers theme and I’m loving it!

I’m a sucker for all of these tropes. Set them in a small town and it’s even better.

So, this series was inspired by what I love to read and a funny little play on words. I love how it’s grown into such a satisfying world of characters and stories for me as a writer.

Micah is a small-town mechanic with a big-time dream. He’s found his soulmate in high school social studies teacher Coleman Pierce, but while Micah’s out and proud of it, Coleman’s closet door is closed, locked, and welded shut. Stolen nights are all they’ll ever have, unless Micah can find some way to convince Cole that coming out won’t be the end of his dreams.

Cole moved to Blueridge Junction to escape his past. He planned to make himself a new life, far from home and the betrayal he’d suffered there. He wasn’t going to make the same mistakes again, but he didn’t count on meeting Micah, or the intensity of the feelings the man arouses in him.

But Micah is out and Cole… isn’t. And while Micah definitely revs his engines, Cole isn’t going to risk his job or his newly minted future on a relationship that might not work out. When outside forces bear upon the couple, Cole is faced with a decision. Will he keep his secret and risk losing everything, including the man he loves? Or will he stand with Micah and fight for their future?

*Fight for It is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to language, themes, and adult scenes.*

 

 

“Well, hello there, Mr. Pierce.” Jay Owen’s perched next to me at the bar where I was waiting on my to-go order.

I’d met Jay through Cody, the owner of BJ’s Burgers & Beer where I got seventy-five percent of my meals. A lot of people in town were friendly, welcoming, and perfectly nice. But, somehow, I had managed to land mostly gay men in the majority of my new friends. Birds of a feather, I guess.

“Hi, Jay. And call me Cole. Mr. Pierce seems sort of creepy the way you say it.” I was only slightly joking.

“It’s supposed to,” Jay drawled and winked. “No, but seriously, where’s your car? I’ve seen you walking lately.”

“It’s in the shop. Broke down on the last trip back from my old place.” I checked the time. I had nowhere to be, but chit-chat with Jay rarely stayed neutral.

Micah’s working on your car?” Jay’s eyes bugged out.

“Yeah, why?”

“Just, if Micah was working on my car, I’d be over there from open until close watching.” Jay bit his lip.

“You don’t have a car, Jay.” I rolled my eyes and tried to change the subject.

“Elementary, my dear. You totally know what I mean.” Jay fanned himself. “Mmm, just think of Micah all sweaty. Pulling those coveralls down to his waist. Bending over that car just like he’d bend over you.”

“Whoa, okay. Calm down there before you work yourself into a froth.”

Cody came over and plopped down my to-go bag. He handed Jay a bag as well. “Here, made too many fries. You can take them.”

Jay smiled and grabbed the bag. “Thanks, Papa Bear.”

“Call me that again and I’ll take them back.” Cody flipped/flicked? a towel at Jay.

Out on the sidewalk, Jay and I sauntered toward the park.

“You’ve got to know that Micah is like majorly hot for you, right?” Jay asked around a mouthful of fries.

“No. He’s not. And, even if he was, it wouldn’t matter. I’m not looking.” The lies rolled from my tongue easier each time I said them.

“Girl, you keep telling yourself that all you want, but I’m telling you. Micah Edwards is totally hot for Cole Pierce.” Jay teased. “It’s like fate. You end up teaching here. Your car breaks down. Hot-as-sin Micah Edwards comes to rescue you in his big truck. Mmm, I’d let him hoist me up and tow me anywhere he wants.”

“Dude, chill out. Micah doesn’t like me. I don’t like Micah. I’m not looking for anything in the romance department. My job is what’s important to me.” We had almost reached the park. I’d go one way and Jay would, hopefully, go his own way.

“Only having your job to fulfill you is a sad and lonely way to live. You need friends and love. And sex. Lots of sex.” Jay gave a dramatic sigh.

“I’m making friends. I love my job. And sex is overrated.” Lies, lies, lies.

“Then you’re not having it right,” Jay quipped.

“Yeah? Who are you having sex with?” I challenged in hopes of changing the subject.

“Me?” Jay put a hand to his chest. “Ladies don’t kiss and tell, but I’ll have you know I’m saving myself for the right person.”

I couldn’t help the look of shock on my face. Glancing around, I whispered, “You’re a virgin?”

Jay sobered quickly. “Yeah, but can you keep that quiet? I have a reputation to uphold.”

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.

Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.

A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.

A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.

Still sopping wet, I step out of the tub and our eyes meet. He doesn’t back up, he continues standing close to me. I don’t know what comes over me, but it’s like I’m possessed. I reach out and touch his waist, he grabs me and pulls my naked body towards him. What am I doing? He immediately wraps his arms around my waist and tightens his grip.

I slip my hand up under his long blonde hair as he draws me to him. Hungrily, our mouths widen and he plunges his tongue deep inside of me. The intensity behind our lips meeting causes our bodies to smash against one another. He’s warm and soft, the taste of honey from the whiskey lingering on his tongue is sweet with a slight hint of caramel. I don’t want to stop kissing him. I might not have ever done this before, but I can’t stop myself either. Our tongues slowly circle one another’s, then thrash in foreplay, as our heads twist and turn from side to side. I’m kissing him back just as much as he’s kissing me. He tugs on my bottom lip and sucks me into his mouth. He moans into my mouth, my cock continues to swell in anticipation. The sensual, yet hungry, noises he’s makes is getting me horny and I love the way it makes me feel. I want a release so damn bad, I need it.

Our kisses intensify and we both silently beg for satisfaction. I want him like I’ve never wanted anyone before. I greedily grab his hand and lead him to my aching muscle. He gives a little grin, our mouths never leaving each other, as he takes me in his palm, wrapping around me. He grips my cock, tight and firm. “Oh god!” I gasp. He begins stroking back and forth. His tongue delves into my mouth, swirling around mine and he sucks the tip into his pucker. “Mmm…” he growls.

Lance snatches my hand, guiding me to the button on his jeans. With one hand, I reach down between his legs and glide my open palm up the inside of his thigh, pressing hard and massaging, then I stroke over his dick. I stroke against his bulge, he’s blistering hard. With the other hand, I fumble and unfastened his button then lower his zipper. I pull apart the two sections of his jeans, releasing him. He reaches up, stripping his t-shirt over his head, and tossing it to the carpet. Our hands thirstily grope and rub against one another. I swirl my tongue in circles around his and lap at his lips. The slurping noises are driving me crazy.

Things are moving so fast, as he slides his jeans down a little, he winds my hand around his dick. I stroke up and down the length of his rod. He tightens his grip and starts jerking me faster. God he feels good, fuck it’s hot and I love how horny he’s making me.

A top rated and insightful Review by Amos Lassen
I believe that the most beautiful love exists when two lovers are also best friends. Nate and Cody share a friendship that began when they were children. They always had felt that they belonged together and after a weekend in Florida when they were teens, they understood that they were destined to be together forever. However for whatever reason, Nate stopped that. Nonetheless, their friendship did not suffer as a result, they stayed best friends with each going his own way and each found his own partner. They still lust after each other but secretly and when a tragic event occurs, they feel something is missing. Whatever had stopped the physical love that they once shared, hurt the two in ways only that they could know.
After a tragic automobile accident, Nate becomes blind and he knows that his life will never again be what it once was. Cody, his best friend has always felt great love for Nate but never really knew that Nate felt the same for him. Our story is told through the eyes of blind Nate and let me deviate from my review to add something personal here. I have a very close blind friend who has taught me so much about life as “seen through her eyes”. She feels things that I have always thought I was incapable of doing but I learned as I listened to and watched her.
The lives of the unsighted are very different from our own and I certainly feel so much better because I can experience blindness through her. She has opened me to look at those with physical and mental disabilities differently than I ever have before. Putting myself in Nate’s place was not that difficult for me because of this and I can tell you that author MacNichol has done an incredible job with Nate. I know the frustration that comes along with blindness and the very way that Nate deals with rejecting his sighted boyfriend shows this beautifully. We see that even though he is blind, his artistry remains and he maintains the ability to create beauty with the pottery he makes.
I feel myself wanting to say more about the plot but I am forcing restraint so as not to write any spoilers. This is a beautiful book and I want everyone to share in its beauty without my giving something away. I know that it is sometimes hard to see the forest because of the trees often is a true statement and it certainly is true for Nate and Cody.

12 Days of Giveaways Event

 I’m taking part in this wonderful Christmas event. There’s a little something to read, my post about this festive season, plus a giveaway and a special hot bonus scene I wrote a while ago for Saving Alexander.
 1-pictures

So – what’s your idea Christmas gift? I confess I was looking through a list of the most wanted gift ideas and I was a little taken aback. It’s everything from expensive tequila, to virtual reality glasses, a lot of techno geek gifts like Google Home and even a WonderWoof activity monitor for your pet. I must confess I’m a tech-geek myself so anything like this would do for me.

Of course, all I really want for Christmas are some Amazon Gift vouchers. I ask my family every year for these because I buy a lot of books there, and other bits and bobs as well. Yet every year, I get something else. The family don’t think the provision of gift vouchers is a ‘proper’ gift even it’s what I want. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. This year I got a gorgeous Bluetooth radio for my car so I can play my Google and Amazon music library through my speakers. I love my music so this was a combined Christmas and Birthday present (the 28th December) from my lovely husband.

But why ask me what I want and then when I tell you, you buy something else? Sigh. Either way I’m grateful for what I get, even if it means I then spend my own money on buying books the One-Click way, because I simply can’t resist a good story. Yep, we all have the same problem no doubt. One-Click-Aholics indeed.

Hope you get what you want for Christmas and enjoy a fun filled seasonal time with the ones you love.

You can see the full report of the ‘must have’ gifts at the link below

Leave a comment on this post, follow my blog and you’ll be in line to win a book charm, and a set of three e-books of your choice. I’ll ship the charm internationally, so don’t worry.

And here you can read the sizzling hot bonus scene for Saving Alexander

SAVING ALEXANDER BONUS SCENE

8715e-abouttheauthor

Susan Mac Nicol is a self-confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self-confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never-Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

Sue is also a PAN member of the Romance Writers of America and a member of their Rainbow chapter as well as a member of the Romantic Novelists Association in the UK.
