Many thanks to author Kim Dare, who’s providing an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m paranormal romance, Ryland’s Sacrifice, for me to give away to a lucky winner!
Principles don’t pay tuition fees. When Ryland’s math scholarship disappears overnight, he has two choices. He can borrow money from fellow student Jason Burrows, who has very interesting ways of collecting debts. Or, he can volunteer to be thrown to the werelions.
One night spent playing the part of a willing human sacrifice will give him enough money to finish his PhD. It seems like a good deal – right up until the moment he finds himself naked, blindfolded, bound and surrounded by lions.
A bit more about Kim, who might have been a little bit traumatized that I asked, based on her first few sentences!
“Tell me a bit about yourself” is an evil thing to ask a person to do. It’s like handing someone a microphone and telling them to “say something”. Instant mind blank. Here goes anyway…
I’m 26 years old, from Wales in the UK, and apparently incapable of writing anything like this without making it sound like a really bad personal ad, lol.
And on to what I guess is the interesting bit – I write BDSM erotic romances. Most of them are Male/Male, some are Male/Female and a couple are menages, but all of them are kinky and, in their own way, they are all love stories that work towards giving happy endings to characters who really deserve them.
My latest obsession of the moment is with shifters. I’ve already got a pack of werewolves who are having a huge amount of fun over at Total-e-bound. Now, my pride of werelions have found a very nice home at Resplendence Publishing – the humans who fall in love with them are settling in quite well there too.
That’s pretty much it. If you want to know anything else, just ask. I’ll be lurking about while the competition is running, so if any questions crop up in the comments, I’m happy to chat.
Ryland’s Sacrifice will be released by Resplendence Publishing on Tuesday, February 9.

“I don’t think werelions are really cats. Still waiting for that black cat book giveaway, Mom. If you loved us…” -Mayhem
Hmm. In correcting this overexposed picture of May, I appear to have left her very sparkly. But not pink! 😉

Hiding in a box May? Trying to look lost and sad? Not working. You just look cute and cuddly!

What blue eyes you have Mayhem. It might take mom awhile to find a cat book, but give her time.
.-= margeneÂ´s last blog ..Blu la la =-.
May looks concerned. I think she thinks that one day you are going to confuse her for a book with some chiseled abs on the cover and try to raffle her off on your blog.
The jig is up, Chris. She’s on to you now. DUN DUN DUN!
Oh, this one sounds like a good one to delve into m/m romance with. Werelions? Sounds good! count me into the drawing please!

Uh oh. Sparkly. We know what that means.
.-= Cheryl S.Â´s last blog ..FO: Feather Duster Scarf =-.
May, would it work for you if it was werepanthers? Big black kitties that become people on those rare occasions when they want to reach the big jar of treats, I mean, cookies from the top shelf?
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..what are they called? =-.
Good luck all!
It does sound tempting, but I must stand by my decision not to enter any e-book contests before I can something to read them on.
.-= blodeueddÂ´s last blog ..Monday Mayhem =-.
May, sparkly is just right for this time of year!
We need more cat romance novels.
.-= DebbyÂ´s last blog ..Hibernation =-.
Do sparkly mice make cats sparkly?
Why she hardly needs a tiara with all that sparkle! And I agree that werelions are not really cats. A Panther Princess beats a werelion any day.
.-= BrendaÂ´s last blog ..FO: Nubby Cardigan =-.
May is very sparkly ~ Every girls dream!
What is a werelion? Is it like a werewolf but a lion?
Oooh count me in! This book looks awesome!

*waves at Kim*
You’re a focused bunch today (*sparkly kitty!* *contest!*) – not a single question for Kim??
Count me in! I love Kim!
I heart the kinky side of Kim’s stories and I would love to read about werelions going kinky. So count me in please 🙂
Okay, you want a question, Chris? Here’s one for Kim: A lot of your romances are M/M. Do you enjoy writing those better than M/F? Why (not)?
.-= ErotRomReader JannaÂ´s last blog ..January Round-Up & Catching Up on My Reviews =-.
Me pulleeze. I like Kim’s work. 😀

How can you resist a book with the line, “right up until the moment he finds himself naked, blindfolded, bound and surrounded by lions.”
Add my name, please!
.-= CCÂ´s last blog ..Milkweed Project =-.
I have a question for Kim… I love the blurb, but don’t really go for m/m romances. Do you have a favorite m/f of yours that you can point me toward?
(Yup, Chris, you guessed it. Not entering this contest either. 😉 Also, if mamatulip is right and you are going to raffle May off on the blog, count me in on that one. She and Suz can play Sparkle Kitteh Princess together.)
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..February Goals =-.
Ohh more comps. I love free things! And Kim Dare.
.-= SayuriÂ´s last blog ..Cover Love: Not so much, no. =-.
Sparkly but not pink, that’s my Mayhem.
Shapeshifters, eh? Excellent! Too bad it’s attached to a love story.
/bah, romance. 😉
.-= Carrie KÂ´s last blog ..January 11, 1937 – November 28th, 2009 =-.
I”m not doing the ebook thing (yet?) but had to comment on the cutie sparkly Mayhem!
Please count me in – like Kim’s stories – Just finished Gay Since Today.
The cover alone makes me want to win this-Yowza! It’s sounds really good and I’m on a m/m genre book obsession so I’d love to add this to my library.
And by making May sparkly have you jumped on the Twilight bandwagon? LOL!
All princess kitties should sparkle!
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Knitting! =-.
Wait. Mayhem is not a vampire in the sunlight, is she?
.-= kmkatÂ´s last blog ..Talking cat. =-.
sparklie is always good for the ladies…pink not so much’
I’ll throw my hat in. I’ve been meaning to check out one of Kim’s books.
I’d love to win a copy of Kim Dare’s new book! Sounds interesting! ^^
Hi everyone 🙂
(I’m going to try and reply in one message to avoid them getting them accidentally caught as spam.)
@Chris. Lol, not too traumatised, just not used to writing about real people – fictional ones are so much more fun!
@cursingmamma. Yep, just like werewolves, except they shift into lions 🙂
@Janna. I do find the MM stories a lot easier. They tend to click easily into place for me in a way the MF ones don’t.
Not entirely sure why. The MM stories were the first erotic romances I ever wrote, I didn’t start writing MF stories until quite a while later, so it might be that I’m just not so used to writing them.
Add to that the fact that most of the people inside my head just happen to be gay/bi men and I tend to write far more MM than MF 🙂
@Nicole. The MF one that’s had the best response so far is Silent Night, if that’s any help. In spite of the title it’s not a Christmas story. It is a BDSM story, but there’s nothing too harsh in it 🙂
Thanks to everyone who’s entered so far – and for all the nice comments 🙂
Thanks, Kim! I’ll have to go check it out…
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..February Goals =-.
I am entering the contest.
I just love m/m books, especially paranormals stories. I’ve heard many good things about Kim Dare’s works and look forward in reading them.
I love Kim. Please count me in. 🙂
Black cat book giveaway… hmmmm….
Sirius did try and get in your box of goodies but I told him about the plane journey and he hopped right out again. He doesn’t like to travel.
