Reading Update
The Spy Who Haunted Me (Secret Histories #3) by Simon R Green. Ok paranormal thriller in which Eddie is teamed up with five other agents, who must work together and compete against each other to solve five great mysteries. The best part of this was Walker from the Nightside being one of the agents.
From Hell with Love (Secret Histories #4) by Simon R Green. Ok continuation of this paranormal thriller series. I would’ve been severely annoyed about the cliffhanger ending if I hadn’t had the next book on hand.
Blackout (All Clear #1) by Connie Willis. Very good story about the delightful chaotic time traveling historians of Oxford. Of course things go terribly awry. :) Be warned that this is the first half of a story and things stop at a precarious point, so have All Clear on hand to continue. *hopes that someone returns an ebook copy to my library very, very soon*

Ebook giveaway: Baited by Tami Veldura [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Tami Veldura for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming rereleased m/m romance, Baited, for a lucky commenter to win! Tami will release Baited on November 28.

Zach left small town Edenburg twenty years ago. He got out, went to school, started a business, and never forgot his first love, Mason Gilbert. When he hears Mason’s mother has died of a stroke, he drops everything to help his best friend get through it. But Zach left Edenburg for a reason.

Since Zach left, Mason has managed to make a small space for himself in Edenburg. He hides his past and, in return, no one brings it up. It’s a system that works just fine until his past comes charging back in an off-white Bronco to save the day. Mason doesn’t need saving and Zach’s persistence is unraveling the life he made.

Zach doesn’t know the Mason he’s found in Edenburg. Mason’s losing hunting clients and credibility all around town. People are choosing sides. Zach thought he was coming back for happily ever after, but he’s starting to feel like the big bad wolf.

Ebook giveaway: Making It Pay by JL Merrow [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to JL Merrow for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Making It Pay, for a lucky commenter to win! Making It Pay will be released by JMS Books on November 16.

Sometimes you can’t see the silver lining for the clouds.

Abandoned as a baby and now working as a rent boy, Daniel finds it hard to let people get close to him. But nightclub bouncer Rob has a kind face and he’s helped Daniel out once already, so when he catches Daniel on a bad night, Daniel accepts his offer of money and goes home with him.

Even though it breaks his heart.

Letting Rob pay him for sex may have wrecked their friendship just when Daniel needs all the friends he can get. But there are more reasons why he hasn’t seen Rob since that night – and one in particular that makes building a relationship seem almost too much to hope for.

Note: A version of this short story first appeared in the Dreamspinner Sindustry anthology, now out of print, under the title “Sunshine”. The story has been fully revised and re-edited, and is around 10% longer than the previously published version.

About JL

JL Merrow is that rare beast: an English person who refuses to drink tea.  Having grown up by the seaside, she also loathes fish and chips.  She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again.  Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporaries and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. You can find out more about JL at her website, blog, Facebook, Goodreads, and Amazon.

Ebook giveaway: Out of Time by Clare London [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m paranormal romance, Out of Time, for a lucky commenter to win!

Is immortality a dream or a curse?

Ambrus travels in space and time, a mature and confident vampire, not looking for any permanent companion.

Then in the bloody trenches of WWI, he meets Edward, a beautiful young soldier turned vampire against his will and fighting his fate with bitter anger and resentment. Ambrus is irresistibly drawn to him but Edward rejects him at first.

What then follows is an anguished and erotic courtship throughout the century, as Ambrus seeks to help Edward find his own way to peace as an immortal, and Edward learns what real love – and a real lover – is.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a new, standalone version published in 2014, and is not part of the 2009 Immortal Fire series. Previous editions are no longer available for purchase.

About Clare

Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home, she juggles her writing with the weekly wash, waiting for the far distant day when she can afford to give up her day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters.

Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter 3 stage and plenty of other projects in mind… she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home.

All the details and free fiction are available at her website. Visit her today and say hello!

You can also visit Clare at her blog, website, FacebookTwitter, and GoodReads.
