Ebook Giveaway: Cameron’s Pride by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Linda C, who won her choice from one of Devon Rhodes’s recent ebook releases!


Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky paranormal m/m romance, Cameron’s Pride (Thrown to the Lions #4), for a lucky commenter to win! Cameron’s Pride will be released by Resplendence Publishing on December 8.

Franklin knows the way the game is played. It’s the man with the money who calls the shots, and Franklin has plenty of money. When he sees a beautiful lion shifter called Caramel dancing on the stage at his favourite club, he doesn’t hesitate to reach for his wallet. And, when Caramel disappears before he can even open negotiations, he’s quick to pay a fortune in order to be thrown to the only pride of werelions in the area.

Cameron’s been living without a pride for years, doing whatever it takes to survive. Dancing in clubs, and doing whatever the guys who throw money at him want him to do in the alleyways behind those clubs, hasn’t given him the best opinion of human men. All he knows for sure is that the rich ones are the worst.

The pride are determined to track down the lone lion that’s living in their territory and bring him safely under their care, but is it too late for Cameron to find a sense of pride – and if he does, will he be too proud to let a wealthy man like Franklin into his life?

Ebook Giveaway: Christmas with Danny Fit by Amy Lane [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Linda C, who won her choice from one of Devon Rhodes’s recent ebook releases!


Many thanks to Amy Lane for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m holiday romance, Christmas with Danny Fit, for a lucky commenter to win! Christmas with Danny Fit will be released by Dreamspinner Press on December 1 as part of their 2010 Advent Calendar. (So if you’ve purchased the entire Advent Calendar, you don’t need to enter this contest.)

One cold November evening, pudgy accountant Kit Allen realizes Jesse, his new office assistant, is everything he’s ever dreamed about in a man. Feeling supremely unworthy and desperate to get a life – even an imaginary one – Kit embarks on a self-improvement campaign that includes workout DVDs featuring Danny Fit, fitness guru extraordinaire.

In the meantime, Jesse has begun a subtle campaign of his own, one designed to bring Kit into the real world and into his arms. Jesse isn’t perfect – he’s no Danny Fit – but he hopes that the kind, funny man who has been looking at him so soulfully since his first day at work has what it takes to be everything Jesse has always wanted.

Reading Update
Breathe by Sloan Parker. ebook. Very good m/m romantic suspense about a guy who’s just spent six months in prison and is returning to his home town. I don’t want to say more about it, because part of this book’s strength is how what happened in the past and what’s happening in the present unfold together. Every time I was sure I had things all figured out, I was wrong. :)
Last Call Europe: Black Wolf by Belinda McBride. ebook. Very good kinky m/m paranormal romance about a lone wolf shifter and detective who’s been following the trail of a killer around the world. He ends up in London, at the paranormal bar Last Call Europe, where he’s teased by a saucy Siberian Husky shifter…
Caught by Surprise by L.D. Madison. ebook. Good m/m romance (from Loose Id’s Coming Out Day series) about two FBI agents who wake up naked in bed together with no memory of how they got there… My only complaint about this book was a plot thread that seemed to be going somewhere but was dropped.
Hit and Run by Cassidy Ryan. ebook . Good m/m romantic suspense about a guy who witnesses a crime, then ends up on the run, trying to stay alive long enough to testify.
After Hours by Cassandra Gold. ebook short. Cute steamy short m/m story about a guy closing at a bakery, who’s kind of impatient when a customer rushes in at the last minute…
The Hitcher and His Ride by Misty Malone (according to ARe, even though that doesn’t match the cover…). ebook short. Ok short paranormal m/m story about a lost driver who sees a wrecked motorcycle on the road and picks up the injured rider. This was a variation of a pretty traditional hitchhiker ghost story, with a few twists.
Nature’s Own by Nica Berry. ebook. Meh m/m urban fantasy about the fae, with a menagey bit. Alas, this story never drew me in, nor did I particularly care about any of the characters by the end.
Beg for More by A.J. Hardcourt. ebook short. So-so short m/m encounter between an architect and the owner of a construction company when they’re working late one evening.
The Club at Cool Harbor by Christiane France. ebook. Meh m/m romance about two guys who are trying to figure out who’s leaking secrets from an exclusive gay mens’ club. My major problems with the book were a plot based on a big misunderstanding, stalkerish tendencies (after a single date that didn’t actually happen, one guy called, sent letters, etc, for months?! Really??), instalove, and a lack of dramatic tension.
Sleepless in San Francisco by Ryan Field. ebook. PWP based on the movie Sleepless in Seattle. I knew this wasn’t going to be a good book, but it was worse than I expected.

Ebook Giveaway: Mistletoe and Submission by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Congrats to Tracy, who won Tooth and Nail (Warder, Book 2) by Mary Calmes! Tooth and Nail is the sequel to His Hearth and is being released by Dreamspinner Press today.

Congrats to Monica J, who won Handcuffs & Trouble (Rawlings Men, Book 4) by Kim Dare! Handcuffs & Trouble is now available from Resplendence Publishing.


Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky holiday m/m romance, Mistletoe and Submission, for a lucky commenter to win! Mistletoe and Submission will be released by Total-E-Bound on December 6.

“Stand under the mistletoe until midnight, naked, bound and blindfolded. Submit to any dominant who wants a piece of you.”

At the junior doms regular poker night, anything can, and frequently does, happen. Add in crackers that contain dares instead of jokes and two men’s lives might never be the same again.

When Carl applied to join the best leather club in the city, he had no doubt about his preference for dominance. It was only when he set eyes on Sloan that he began to wonder if submission might be far more fun than he originally thought.

With no time for club politics and little interest in rising through the ranks, ever since experienced dom Sloan moved to the city and joined the club, he’s been quite content to bide his time among the junior dominants and keep a brotherly eye on a young man who is obviously out of his depth amongst his more sadistic contemporaries.

One man has to do the dare. The only question now, is which man will it be, and are either of the friends ready for the way their relationship might change after a night of Mistletoe and Submission?
