One mistake is all it takes to ruin the rest of someone’s life. One stubborn best friend is all it takes to save it.

After a play scene goes bad, resulting in unexpected consequences, Reese Andrews is sure his dreams are over. Struggling with a harsh rejection from his parents and reeling from the life-altering news, Reese heads home to the one person he needs most.

Doug Hawks is excited to hear his best friend is coming to visit. When Reese shows up with all his belongings packed in his little car, Doug is both hopeful and confused. Is Reese coming home to stay…or leaving for good?

When Reese spills his news then runs, Doug takes on the challenge of convincing Reese he can still have – and deserves – a happily ever after.

About Em

Not so long ago, I was an Army brat, which lends to my imagination (Oh, the places I have seen…lol) and I am the mother of two energetic little boys, which gives me my sense of humor. I started writing in high school for the newspaper and have written steadily since then for my own enjoyment. I have lived everywhere thanks to the travel bug I inherited from my parents, but currently am push-pinned in southeast Michigan. A typical day is a little crazy but I always work in writing time and I love chatting with friends.

I am multi-published with Total-e-Bound Publishing and Breathless Press…and every week I am working hard on one blog story or another that I offer on my website each Monday as part of The Story Orgy. Feel free to visit me at my website, Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter.

Many thanks to RJ Scott for donating an ebook copy of the forthcoming m/m romance anthology, Hearts of England, for a lucky commenter to win! Hearts of England will be released by Silver Publishing on September 15.

From the wilds of the Brontes’ bleak moors, to soft summer nights in Stratford upon Avon, and chance meetings in a cosy tea shop, join us for a delightful journey through the romances of England.

Six stories full of desire, of men loving men, written by English authors known for their passionate tales of love, lust, and rekindling romances.

The Cameraman’s Tale – Chris Quinton
Mark is a researcher for a paranormal reality TV show. A cameraman on the show encountered a ghost and needs his help. Mark must break the cycle of injury and death before filming begins, or others will be at risk. Featuring Mark and Jack from the story: The Psychic’s Tale.

By Design – Lisa Worrall
Robbie Cooper gets more than he bargains for when Shane Donald walks into his shop, photograph in hand, asking Robbie to tattoo the likeness on his skin. There’s something about the photograph and the way Shane talks about the man in the picture that ignites a spark deep inside Robbie, and he longs to know more. But will he like what he hears, and will he be able to control his instant attraction to his client?

Child of Storm – RJ Scott
Ben Hyland is excited to be showing Cory Vasilyev Yorkshire. Cory scouts locations for film studios and needs the right inspiration for a new film version of Wuthering Heights. Problem is Ben wants to share his passion for the story and for the wild moors but Cory just wants to go home. Until he doesn’t.

A Good Feeling – S.A. Meade
Jamie never expected to meet the love of his life in a tea shop. He never expected his lover, Connor, to be an Army Officer about to return to Afghanistan for one last deployment. After twelve short weeks together, Jamie has to face uncertainty and worry. Worry that Connor may not make it back alive, uncertainty that Connor will want him to be at the base, waiting, when he returns. Will the good feelings he always had about their future together survive their separation?

This Morning – Sue Brown
When Neil takes his son to school he doesn’t expect Alex to tell him that he doesn’t want to go to South Africa on a year-long trip with him and his husband. Neil has to make a choice between his son and his husband. He only hopes that Baz understands his son must come first, otherwise he faces the prospect of his love walking out of his life forever.

William’s Heart – Meredith Russell
Jude is confident, happy, and views his world through the lens of a camera. Brody is a writer. Haunted, and searching for inspiration in Stratford-upon-Avon. In Jude, Brody finds something his heart has longed for—acceptance for who he is.

Ebook Giveaway: In the Blink of an Eye by Kim Dare

Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky m/m romance, In the Blink of an Eye, for a lucky commenter to win! In the Blink of an Eye will be released by Resplendence Publishing on September 12.

Adam is a great believer in science. If something is scientifically proven, it’s a fact, and Adam doesn’t waste his time arguing with facts. Tom is as straight as any man can possibly be, Adam doesn’t like it, but he knows he has no choice but to accept it.

When Tom approaches Adam at the office Christmas party, Adam’s not going to let himself be fooled into thinking that Tom is flirting with him just because the other man is friendly, or because he doesn’t seem to understand the whole personal space thing.

Facts are facts, until they suddenly change, in the blink of an eye.

Kim’s Other Books

About Kim

Kim Dare is a twenty-eight year old full time writer from Wales (UK).

First published in December 2008, Kim has since released 75 BDSM erotic romances. That means that well over one hundred characters have chattered away inside her head during that time – and that’s not even taking into account the fact that there are over three times that number of people clamouring in the wings for a chance to tell their stories. It’s no wonder she loses track of what’s happening in the “real” world at times…

While Kim’s stories range over male/male, male/female and all kinds of menage relationships and have included vampires, time travellers, shape-shifters and fairytale re-tellings, they all have three things in common – kink, love and a happy ending.

You can visit Kim at her website and her blog.

Reading Update
Men of Smithfield 1: Mark & Tony by LB Gregg. ebook. reread. Very good m/m romance about a guy who goes a little nuts after finding his boyfriend screwing their landlord in their bedroom and things start to spiral out of control. Then there’s the friend he’s had a crush on for years, who turns out to have a few secrets of his own… (Originally published as Gobsmacked.)
The Perfect Cover by Claire Thompson. ebook. reread. Good m/m romance about a straight guy who gets a job at Caribbean resort for gay men by hiding that he’s straight. But has he really thought the whole thing through?
Beneath the Surface by Kate Sherwood. ebook. Good m/m romance about an unassuming craftsman in a small Ontario who finds himself leading the opposition to a proposed gravel quarry next to his land. Too bad the spokesperson for the other side is so handsomely distracting…
Rarer than Rubies (Precious Gems #1) by EM Lynley. ebook. Good m/m romantic suspense about an m/m author who’s stuck in a rut, so his friends send him on vacation to Thailand, where he becomes inadvertently tangled in a life-or-death adventure with a handsome mystery man.
Italian Ice (Precious Gems #2) by EM Lynley. ebook. Good m/m romantic suspense in which the m/m romance author and the alleged former FBI agent are on vacation in Rome when a ghost from the FBI agent’s past resurfaces, putting strain on his current relationship. The story’s last line (and sadly, the title inspiration) literally made me groan.

Ebook Giveaway: Sub Zero by Angel Martinez [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Angel Martinez for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m scifi mystery, Sub Zero, for a lucky commenter to win!

Major Aren Dalsgaard’s newest assignment is to investigate a series of murders on the frigid planet, Drass, where relations between the Treaty settlers and the natives have taken a nasty turn. A linguist and trained xenologist, Aren should be the ideal Special Investigations officer for the assignment. So what’s the problem? Drass is where he died, more than a hundred and twenty years ago.

Sent by his family to the chigyel city, Nyachung finds himself confronted with a murder charge, racial prejudice, and a cryo-revived investigator who claims to be a hero from his grandmother’s generation. Major Dalsgaard could be crazy or he could be lying, but the sincerity in his spring-green eyes disturbs Nyachung more than anything else he encounters in the foreigners’ city.

Now, confronted with mysterious black boxes and a beautiful yet evasive young man as a prime suspect, Aren hopes he can solve the murders before his fierce sexual attraction to Nyachung gets the better of him…
