Linkity on a lark

Congrats to Laura, who won Clear Water by Amy Lane! Clear Water is being released today by Dreamspinner Press.

Brace yourselves. Monday is a holiday in the US, so there won’t be a Misadventure. Surely there’s a Misadventure or two that you might’ve missed and could catch up on instead? 🙂




  • Kaje Harper has a short m/m-themed young adult story, Intervention, that you can read free on her website.

Reading Update
Barging In by Josephine Myles. ebook ARC. Excellent m/m romance about a somewhat slutty travel writer who’s rented a narrowboat for a week so he can write about and photograph life on the canals. When he (literally) runs into a hunky, prickly boater who takes an instant dislike to him, things get a lot more interesting… for both of them. This was a story that built slowly, but never felt like it. And make sure you have your hankies handy! Highly recommended. Available September 20.
Shattered Secrets (In the Shadow of the Wolf #1) by Diane Adams & RJ Scott. ebook. Very good m/m paranormal romantic suspense about a wolf shifter who hooks up with a cop who doesn’t realize he’s hooking up with a shifter… and isn’t pleased when he does realize. But a shifter-related case throws them together again and things get complicated. So… when’s the next book coming out? 🙂
The Usual Apocalypse (The Society #2) by Christine Price. ebook ARC. Very good paranormal m/m romantic suspense about an agent who works for a paranormal investigation organization and is very good at his job because people can’t lie to him. Usually. When he takes over an internal affairs investigation because the previous investigator and her husband were found murdered in their beds, he has no idea that his life is about to change irrevocably in multiple ways. I didn’t realize that there was a previous book (In Darkness Bound). I see some reviewers have complained that it wasn’t a romance – rest assured that this most definitely was. Available September 26.
Prep Work by P.D. Singer. ebook short. Very good short m/m romance about a somewhat disgraced celebrity chef who discovers that the intriguing chef at the pub where he’s having dinner is a fan.
For the Attention Of (Pushing the Envelope #1) by Kim Dare. ebook short. Good kinky short m/m romance about a dom who receives a very intriguing and mysterious invitation, which he can’t resist.
Pop, Pop, Snap! by Winnie Jerome. ebook short. Good kinky short m/m story about a cashier at an amusement park who runs into the guy he broke up with to date a guy who turned out to be a jerk.
A Prideless Man (Supernatural Mates #3) by Amber Kell. ebook. Pretty good paranormal m/m romance about a guy with rheumatoid arthritis who moves to the shifter town because he’s always enjoyed being around shifters… and discovers that most of what he thought he knew about himself is wrong.
Riddle of the Sands (Fathom’s Five #2) by Geoffrey Knight. ebook. Pretty good action adventure about a group of gay adventurers rushing against time both to find an antidote to a rare poison with which one of their group has been injected and to find a lost Egyptian pyramid. Only recommended if you can suspend disbelief for a plot more over-the-top than anything from an Indiana Jones movie.
The Curse of the Dragon God (Fathom’s Five #3) by Geoffrey Knight. ebook. Ok action adventure in which our group of gay adventurers is all over the place, trying to rescue their beloved Professor and prevent a bomb from destroying Beijing. I know that this series is deliberately over-the-top, but sometimes it works, and sometimes… not so much. Particularly if you have people arriving instantly in San Francisco from Krakow and the Caribbean. But hey, you might enjoy this if you don’t mind hearing bad porn music playing in your head during the sex scenes.
Danny’s Boy by Kate Aaron. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about a guy who can’t find work after university, so returns to the small town where he grew up and runs into his homophobic former best friend. While I quite liked the story, the pronoun confusion was extreme and frustrating.

  1. Hope I’m not the only one who finds the idea of a Gollum wedding cake (somewhat) disturbing.
    Also, don’t know whether to be glad or sad I’m not on facebook. Think I’ll go with glad.

  2. when I was a kid, my mom convinced me that there were sharks in the carpet. Whenever she started to hum the theme to Jaws, I started jumping from chair to chair, freaked out that I was about to meet my doom.

  3. Oh, I’m definitely saving the link for iPad tips and tricks. I can never have too much info. Plus, *be still my heart* chocolate good for the heart!!! YAY, me is happy. Just the amount *little bit* isn’t doing it for me 😉

    I’ve noticed the cover and read the blurb and was intrigued by The Usual Apocalypse (The Society #2) Glad to see you enjoyed it *bumps it up the buy list 😉

    I’ve also read the first one in the Fanthom Five’s series and really liked the adventure aspect of it!

  4. Can’t ever say I expected Clark to cry because Bruce won’t take his calls. Like one commenter on the post said, that last panel needs to become a meme.

    G-Male was disturbing… And it very much opened my eyes to the fact that Google is definitely a better stalker than me.

    I was also actually looking forward to trying out that series by Geoffrey Knight, but it seems like I won’t be able to finish the series if your reviews are anything to go by.

    And May, that pose just solidified the fact that I know see you as a kitty lifeguard. Never mind the fact that you’re hunting prey.

  5. I’ve always been pretty good at spatial puzzles, and I’m also pretty good at math in general. Having not been encouraged to pursue math or science (despite the fact I was very good in both), I’ve always suspected the whole “girls aren’t good at math” thing was more cultural than genetic. There’s a reason I’m homeschooling my girls with the expectation that they’ll be doing higher maths and sciences as well as language arts.

    Yay, chocolate!

  6. Of course chocolate is good for your heart.

    No more Nyan cat! Ack!

    Also, the pic of May reminds me… Did you see the shot of the great white shark among the surfers in San Diego? I can forward it to you if not.

  7. Oh Panther Princess Shark, I am afeared of you!

    I’m still laughing about the family of clowns in the autocorrect text. And the Norse Crisis Flowchart made me LOL.

    The Gollem cake is creepy as hell which means that of course, I’ll have to show the kids. Oldest will likely want it for his birthday.

    And OMG, I love, love, love that dollhouse so freaking much. It’s nothing short of amazing. And you were right – I totally squeed out loud at the oncilla!

  8. Interesting. The keyboard shortcuts I use the most are Alt-Tab to tab through open windows and Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V to copy and paste. Rarely I’ll use Ctrl-X to cut.

    I knew there must be a good reason for eating chocolate. 🙂

    I had no idea they made blackboard oil cloth.

    LOL, it’s good to see black velvet paintings aren’t dead.

    Awww… cute Oncilla and ferret and fresh kitten.

  9. Linkity – YAH! Thank you! Oh, I so need to go and read Kassa’s post as I am currently reading a book I feel I ‘should’ read versus ‘want to read’ 🙂

    I am a Panther Princess Shark, swimming through the living room, hunting my prey!

    Almost too realistic May… *worried*
