Ebook Giveaway: Gayish by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky m/m romance, Gayish (G-A-Y, Book 12), for a lucky commenter to win! Gayish will be released by Total-E-Bound on October 4.

A gay-ish submissive and a very gay dominant. Gay Pride rallies have never been so much fun.

When Langford sees Tayton lurking in the rain opposite a gay pride rally, he couldn’t be more thrilled that the cute guy from the sandwich shop is finally prepared to come out of the closet.

Tayton isn’t so sure he’s all that ready to come out. Technically, he’s not even sure he’s entirely gay – even if he has had a crush on Langford for months.

Can a man who’s not even sure he’s gay really find happiness with a man who’s never been in the closet?

Reader Advisory: The stories in this series are connected solely by theme. They can all be read as stand alone titles and read in any order.

Ebook Giveaway: Margarita Mondays by TC Blue [CONTEST CLOSED]

Today is a two-contest day, so make sure you enter the contest to win Code Blue by Stephani Hecht! (Plus there’s a really cute picture of Mayhem…)


Many thanks to TC Blue for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Lime Green: Margarita Mondays, for a lucky commenter to win! Lime Green: Margarita Mondays will be released by Torquere Books on September 29.

A simple noise complaint to Safe Haven Security ends in a broken door when Jeremy misinterprets something he hears coming from inside Troy Ballard’s home. It also starts the two men on a path of high resistance, as neither of them wants a ‘relationship,’ and especially not with each other. Their lives are too different.

Unfortunately, their hearts insist on wanting exactly what their minds know to be impossible. With the dubious help of their friends, Jeremy and Troy start to discover that sometimes ‘impossible’ is anything but.

Lime Green: Margarita Mondays is the sequel to Lemon Yellow: Making Lemonade.

About TC

I was raised in and around Washington, DC, and therefore I don’t write about politics. A two year stint as a motorcycle courier, followed by varying amounts of times spent as an office worker, server, hair dresser, retail slave, casual student, and chef have led to possessing a smattering of knowledge in many areas. A Jack of all trades and Master of none, I currently live in the suburbs outside DC, accompanied by animals and people of interest. Really.

Ebook Giveaway: Code Blue by Stephani Hecht [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Lyn Armstrong, who won Ravenous by Abigail Barnette!


Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Code Blue, for a lucky commenter to win! Code Blue will be released by eXtasy Books on October 1.

As a firefighter, Justin has learned the hard way that bad things always seem to come in threes and the sudden turn of events in his life is no different. First, major budget cuts to the fire department force him to take a part-time job as a medic and his new partner hates not just him, but all men in general. Next, his rig gets stolen by some drunken bum named Indian Jack, who then crashes it into the local planetarium. Finally, some punk named Clayton shows up and stirs up all kinds of trouble.

Young and way too damn hot looking for his own good, Clayton has come to Flint to claim back his first love, Dylan. There is just one problem with that: Dylan is already in a committed relationship with Justin’s best friend, Kaleb. Since Justin loves Kaleb like a brother, he intervenes by coldly telling Clayton to leave Flint and never come back. To his annoyance, not only does the younger man refuse to leave, but he somehow manages to get a job at one of the local hospitals. So now not only does Justin have to face that Clayton is not going away, but he has to see him every day – all the while fighting the growing attraction between them.

Then Justin learns that everything about Clayton may not be as it seems. The younger man has secrets in his past from which he’s never healed. Despite himself, Justin finds he is drawn closer to Clayton and knows nothing will stop him from trying to protect the troubled man. Will Justin be able to help him become whole, or will Clayton be lost to him forever?

Ebook Giveaway: Electric Melty Tingles by K. Z. Snow [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Donna, who won Maggie’s Mates by Bronwyn Green!


Many thanks to K. Z. Snow for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Electric Melty Tingles, for a lucky commenter to win! Electric Melty Tingles will be released on September 28 by Loose Id as part of their National Coming Out Day series of book releases.

It’s August of 1970, and the friends of 21-year-old Oliver Duncan are having a blast at his bachelor party. Except Ned Surwicki. He isn’t an Ivy Leaguer. He doesn’t appreciate female strippers. And although he’s been Oliver’s best friend since they were 14, Ned isn’t much inclined to celebrate his pal’s impending marriage.

Ned is gay, something he’s known since he kissed a boy and got the melty tingles. Ned is also in love with the groom-to-be. Ned is miserable.

On the night before his wedding, Oliver realizes that he’s miserable, too. Of course Ned comes to his rescue.

Thus begins a romance that spans forty years, requires one coming-out after another, and survives a broken engagement, a menage with War and Pees, world travel, an ill-advised marriage, scores of fuck buddies, a father who thinks his son is destined to be a clone of Liberace, parents who reject their son, and, worst of all, the failure of two misguided men to pursue their fondest dream.

The most important coming-out for Ned and Oliver is summed up in a declaration they spend too many years trying futilely to forget: “I love you. That’s never going to change.”
