Ebook Giveaway: Strength of a Gamma (Pack Discipline, Book 2) by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Lynn Baker, who won Branded by Clare London! (I did not hear back from Angela Reeves within 48 hours – sorry, Angela…)

Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky paranormal m/m romance, Strength of a Gamma (Pack Discipline, Book 2), for a lucky commenter to win! Strength of a Gamma will be released by Total-E-Bound on November 8.

Gamma wolf Steffan may have been in love with his best friend for years, but he knows that’s not enough. Francis deserves a more dominant mate, and Steffan intends to make sure he gets one.

Steffan has been best friends with Francis ever since the younger wolf joined the pack after his own parents died. He’s been in love with him for just as long. But when a new beta joins their pack, he knows it’s time to step aside and let Francis form a bond with a more dominant wolf.

Francis has no idea why Steffan’s been acting so strangely since the new wolves joined their pack. When he discovers the truth, he starts to question things he’d never thought to doubt before. What if he has no interest in a dominant mate? What if he could find the perfect partner far closer to home?

Everything is about to change for Francis and Steffan. The only question is: are the gammas strong enough to cope?

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series

Misadventures in Stock Photography: Part the 46th (Vampires!)

Congrats to Tam, who won Eat Me by Mia Watts! Eat Me, Pride and Joey, and Elliot’s War are all being released today by Total-E-Bound.

Don’t forget that I’m heading to San Francisco with Kris, Tam, Jenre, and Tracy to see the city and attend Yaoi Con. Subsequently, blogging will be a little spotty for the next two weeks. I’ll post contest winners in the evening on October 25 (today), October 28, and October 29 – please consider 7 pm CDT as a rough ending time for those contests! Contests will stay open until I shut off the comments on the contest posts. A new Kim Dare contest will automagically post on Thursday, October 28. Also, I’m not going to be able to reply to all of the contest entries and I apologize in advance for that. Nor will I even be attempting to keep up my usual blog reading and commenting.

Vacationy sorts of random posts may appear without warning. :)
