Ebook Giveaway: Gay Day! Gay Day! by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Paula, who won Duet by Eden Winters! Duet will be released today by Torquere Press.


Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky m/m romance, Gay Day! Gay Day! (G-A-Y, Book 11), for a lucky commenter to win! Gay Day! Gay Day! will be released on September 6 by Total-E-Bound.

A gayday signal – as Rip happily explains to his rather straight friend – is just like a mayday signal, except in this case, the distress flag going up is decidedly rainbow coloured.

When Rip needs a friend to rescue him from his date by pretending to be his disgruntled master, it’s obvious that another sub isn’t going to be up to the job. He needs a dominant, and a straight one will do in a pinch.

Slade isn’t thrilled about being woken up in the middle of the night and asked to rescue his bratty little friend, but he can’t bring himself to leave a sub to the mercy of an unknown dominant either. And, even if most of his previous lovers have been women, he can’t quite resist the temptation to show Rip how he would act if he really were catching his sub flirting with another dominant.

Who knew a straight dominant could have so much fun playing white knight to a gay submissive?

Reader Advisory: This series is connected solely by theme. Each story can be read as a stand alone title and they can be read in any order.

Ebook Giveaway: Talker by Amy Lane [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Amy Lane for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Talker, for a lucky commenter to win! Talker will be released by Dreamspinner Press on September 1.

Tate “Talker” Walker has spent most of his life hiding his scars under a bright punk facade, and until he sat next to Brian Cooper on a bus, it worked. But Brian has spent his whole life being the invisible man, and he’s used to looking below the surface. What he sees in Talker is a fragile and lovable human being.

Brian is outwardly straight, but Talker is desperate for love, and when Talker’s behavior leads to some painful consequences, Brian is forced to come out of his closet – in dramatic fashion. He’ll do anything to make sure Talker sees that he’s the Prince Charming Talker has always needed.

About Amy

Amy Lane teaches high school English, mothers four children, and writes the occasional book. When she’s not begging students to sit-the-hell-down or taxiing kids to soccer/dance/karate – oh my! she can be found catching emergency naps, grocery shopping, or hiding in the bathroom, trying to read without interruption. She will never be found cooking, cleaning, or doing domestic chores, but she has been known to knit up an emergency hat/blanket/pair of socks for any occasion whatsoever, or sometimes for no reason at all. She writes in the shower, while commuting, while her classes are doing bookwork, or while she’s wandering the neighborhood at night, pretending to exercise and has learned from necessity to type like the wind. She lives in a spider infested and crumbling house in a shoddy suburb, and counts on her beloved Mate, Mack, to keep her tethered to reality – which he does while keeping her cell-phone charged as a bonus. She’s been married for 20+ years and still believes in Twu Wuv, with a capital Twu and a capital Wuv, and she doesn’t see any reason at all for that to change.

You can visit Amy at her blog and her website.

Ebook Giveaway: Trinity Trespass by Val Kovalin [CONTEST CLOSED]

Today is a two-contest day! Make sure you check out the contest for Talker by Amy Lane!


Many thanks to Val Kovalin for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming paranormal m/m romance, Trinity Trespass, for a lucky commenter to win! Trinity Trespass will be available from Loose Id on August 31.

A secret war rages throughout the southwestern USA and Mexico between demons and angels, all of whom are trying to pass for human. For Parnell, a demon living in Las Vegas NV, survival depends upon following orders and resisting the allure of any relationship that might bind him to another in sexual slavery.

In his competitive world, he regards other demons such as his lover Navarro as potential opponents. As for the angels, he knows them as the Enslavers whose evil nature compels them to exploit the drug trade in Mexico. When Navarro and Parnell go to the no-man’s land of New Mexico to capture a renegade angel-demon hybrid named Chavez, the three of them enter an uneasy triangle of sexual attraction.

Chavez hopes to seize psychic power on the auspicious day of Easter and use it to kill his master. Parnell and Navarro must prevent this or face death and the return of their souls to Hell. To save himself, Parnell must decide whom to trust, whom to kill, and whether he can find the strength to give his heart to another.

Excerpt

About Val

I started by reviewing m/m gay romance fiction, which led me to writing it, but I’m definitely a reader at heart. I love analyzing fiction, which makes reviewing a favorite hobby. I review with Reviews by Jessewave and for the All Romance Ebooks newsletter. I publish m/m fiction with Loose Id and Amber Allure. As a reviewer, I know not every reader likes every book, so I’m okay with negative reactions to my work. I like humor, strong plots, and complicated characters, and hope to offer you the same. I also like miniatures, minimalism, unusual junk, and animals of all sizes, especially reptiles. Thanks for reading!

You can visit Val at her blog and at her website.

Reading Update
Fugly by K.Z. Snow. ebook. Excellent m/m romance about three extremely superficial friends who hit on the wrong man’s husband in a bar. Afterward, they discover that the men they find attractive and hit on now shun them due to a mysterious rash that has appeared on their faces.
A Red-Tainted Silence by Carolyn Gray. ebook. Very good, emotionally draining m/m romantic suspense about two successful musicians, who’ve loved each other since their teens, and the outside forces and people that have torn them apart and nearly destroyed them. Constantly switching between the present and the past, half the story is told from one’s perspective; the rest from the other’s.
Chaos Magic, Love Runes, and Personal Demons (The Gods & Chaos Series) by Jay Lygon. ebooks. Very good kinky m/m urban fantasy series about a willful submissive who’s also a powerful witch and who worships an unusual set of gods: the God of Traffic, The God of Negotiation, etc. As he tries to stay out of the way of his abusive ex, he meets a powerful and compelling dominant and his whole life changes.
The Harem Boy by Jay Lygon. ebook short. Good short kinky m/m romance about Ophir and Chris, two of the characters from the Gods & Chaos series.
Chain-Male by Angelia Sparrow & Naomi Brooks. ebook. Good, quirky m/m romance about a librarian who meets a guy in the history class he’s auditing and gets a history lesson he won’t soon forget.
His Hearth by Mary Calmes. ebook. Good m/m paranormal romance about a guy who’s wildly successful in his advertising career, but much less so when he dates.
Stirring Up Trouble by Z.A. Maxfield. Good m/m romance about a chef who only lasts a few months at any job before getting fired. He ends up working at a failing neighborhood restaurant owned by an anti-social guy who looks pretty tasty when he’s cooking in his Utilikilt…
A Big Hunk O’ Love by Hunter Raines. ebook. So-so short m/m romance about a recently divorced, deeply in the closet mechanic who takes a trip to Alaska with his (gay) best friend, who’s an Elvis impersonator.
Blind Faith by Claire Thompson. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about a guy, blinded in a car accident, who sees himself as damaged goods that no one could find attractive anymore.
Continuum of Longing by Claire Thompson. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about two guys who work together in a bank, neither of whom realizes that their attraction is mutual.
