Ebook Giveaway: Coffin Dodger (Night Wardens #2) by Stephani Hecht [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Mandy, who won A Lie I Can Live With (The Match Before Christmas #3) by Eden Winters! A Lie I Can Live With is being released today by Torquere Press.


Because tomorrow’s Thanksgiving here in the US, I won’t be posting. However, I will have some form of linkity on Friday. 🙂



Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming paranormal m/m romance, Coffin Dodger (Night Wardens #2), for a lucky commenter to win! Coffin Dodger will be released by eXtasy Books on December 1.

As a Warden destined to protect humanity from supernatural threats, Ari knows that he has to be strong, brave and, most of of all, mentally stable. Try telling that to his brain, though. Ever since he was held as an unwilling blood slave by a band of feral vampires, Ari has been everything a Warden shouldn’t be: scared, angry, and unstable. While he tries to maintain a brave front for his fellow Wardens, cracks in his facade are starting to show, especially when feral vampires attack the city and the Wardens must eliminate the threat.

Adam hasn’t felt whole since his fellow Warden, Ari, was kidnapped. Even though they got Ari back, he hasn’t been the same. Gone is the happy, teasing man Adam fell in love with, replaced by a brooding, angry stranger. When Ari must face his past, both good and bad, his instability only increases. Will Adam’s love be enough to heal Ari’s emotional wounds, or will Ari be lost to the darkness… this time for good?

Ebook Giveaway: While Under the Influence (Perfect Timing #8) by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Mandy, who won A Lie I Can Live With (The Match Before Christmas #3) by Eden Winters! A Lie I Can Live With is being released today by Torquere Press.


Because tomorrow’s Thanksgiving here in the US, I won’t be posting. However, I will have some form of linkity on Friday. 🙂



Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming kinky m/m romance, While Under the Influence (Perfect Timing #8), for a lucky commenter to win! While Under the Influence will be released by Total-E-Bound on December 5.

A natural follower meets a natural leader. The only question now is who will have the biggest influence over the other?

Elijah is a natural follower, but he’s never thought too much about the way he lets his cousin talk him into all kinds of crazy schemes. What he has thought about, a lot, is the fact that he’s pretty sure he’s not entirely straight. When a drunken game of truth and dare sees Elijah’s cousin, Louisa, find out he might be gay, her influence leads him straight into his favourite sexual fantasy.

Aaron has always believed that he’s a much harder man to manipulate, but that doesn’t mean he’s never been hurt, or that past pain doesn’t influence his actions in the present. Aaron might be dominant to the core, but that doesn’t mean it’s all easy for him.

As meddling family members, former submissives and large amounts of alcohol all come to bear on them, Elijah and Aaron are about to find out just what sort of influence they are destined to have on each other.

Reader Advisory: The stories in this series are linked solely by theme. Each story can be read on its own and the stories can be read in any order.

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 over fifty 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.

Ebook Giveaway: Men Under the Mistletoe by Ava March, Josh Lanyon, Harper Fox, & KA Mitchell [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Mandy, who won A Lie I Can Live With (The Match Before Christmas #3) by Eden Winters! A Lie I Can Live With is being released today by Torquere Press.


Because tomorrow’s Thanksgiving here in the US, I won’t be posting. However, I will have some form of linkity on Friday. 🙂



Many thanks to Ava March, Josh Lanyon, Harper Fox, and KA Mitchell for donating a copy of their forthcoming m/m holiday anthology, Men Under the Mistletoe, for a lucky commenter to win! Men Under the Mistletoe will be released on December 5 by Carina Press. (The stories will also be released separately.)

Additionally, to celebrate the anthology’s release, the authors are running a scavenger hunt until December 2. One winner will receive a $100 gift card to Amazon or the ebook retailer of your choice. Two entries will be randomly selected to win a download of the anthology.

Baby, it’s cold outside.

A man receives the gift of pleasure at the hands of two expert lovers. Boyhood sweethearts get a second chance at romance. Two very proper gentlemen indulge their forbidden desires. And a Christmas tree farmer has an epiphany. It may be cold outside but these four holiday novellas will warm you up.

My True Love Gave To Me by Ava March
Alexander Norton loathes the festive season. The revelry of the ton is a reminder of Christmas four years ago, when his first love, Thomas Bennett, broke his heart and fled to New York without a word. So when he encounters Thomas at a holiday ball, Alexander is determined not to let on how much he still hurts.

Thomas has returned for one reason only: Alexander. Having finally come to terms with his forbidden desires, he will do whatever he must to convince Alexander to give their love another chance. But instead of the happy, carefree man Thomas once knew, Alexander is now hard and cynical. Saddened to know he’s to blame for the man’s bitterness, Thomas resolves to reignite the passion he knows lies hidden behind the wall of disdain…

Lone Star by Josh Lanyon
Growing up in rural Texas, Mitchell Evans’ ambition to be a dancer made him a target. Though he found success in New York City, Mitch is at a crossroads, and heads home for the first time in twelve years to figure things out. When what appears to be a reindeer jumps out in front of his car, he drives off the road and into the path of the one man he hoped to avoid.

The last person Texas Ranger Web Eisley expects to see four days before Christmas is his first love. He hasn’t seen Mitch since they quarreled over coming out to their friends and family years ago. Though he’s not in the closet now, Web has worked hard for the respect of his fellow officers, but he still regrets the loss of Mitch in his life. And his bed.

The attraction between them is as strong as ever, and it doesn’t take long for the men to pick up where they left off. But is love enough to keep Mitch in town in the New Year?

Winter Knights by Harper Fox
Historian Gavin Lowden is in Northumberland on Christmas Eve for two reasons: to find evidence of a romantic bond between Arthur and Lancelot, and to finally tell his partner Piers that he loves him. Piers has promised to come clean with his conservative family and join Gavin for their first holiday as a couple, but at the last minute, he bails. Devastated, Gavin heads out onto the moors alone, just as snow begins to fall…

Gavin stumbles into an underground chamber, where strange happenings cause him to question what is real and what is fantasy. He’s found by two mysterious men who offer him a bed for the night – and awaken him to nuances of erotic pleasure he didn’t know existed. Pleasure he hopes to share with Piers.

When Piers learns that Gavin has gone missing, he is desperate to find him. He knows now breaking up was a terrible mistake, and he’s ready to take the next step in their relationship – if it’s not already too late.

The Christmas Proposition by KA Mitchell
It’s Christmas in Epiphany, Pennsylvania – the busiest time of year for Mel Halner. But running the family Christmas tree farm has worn down his love for the happiest season of all, and lately Mel’s been wondering what if he’d said yes to a ticket out of town with millionaire Bryce Campion three years ago.

Bryce isn’t used to people saying no to him, and he can’t forget Mel or their brief but sizzling affair. He might not have been offering forever, but Bryce can’t understand a guy as sexy and smart as Mel choosing to stay rooted on the family farm over enjoying the high life with him. He’s determined to make Mel see what he’s missed out on the first chance he gets.

Ebook Giveaway: Crescendo (Song of the Fallen #2) by Rachel Haimowitz [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Rachel Haimowitz and Storm Moon Press for donating an ebook copy of Rachel’s recently released m/m fantasy romance, Crescendo (Song of the Fallen #2), for a lucky commenter to win!

History made them enemies. Chance made them master and slave. Love overcame it all. But love isn’t always enough…

Bridging the hatred of centuries did not come easy for Freyrik Farr and Ayden Vaska. As prince of a war-torn human province, Freyrik could ill afford to fall for an enemy. And Ayden, an elven warrior with three hundred years of bitterness in his heart, wanted no part of love – not elven, and especially not human. Yet they came together despite themselves and despite the will of their peoples, joining heart and mind to fight a race of Dark Beasts threatening the extinction of mankind.

But the Dark Beast threat pales beside the dangers of the human High Court, home of the Aegis Exalted and the harshest test yet of Ayden’s and Freyrik’s fledgling love.

While Ayden is stripped of his magic, Freyrik is forced to choose between his love for elf, Aegis, and brother, all the while seeking the one uncertain path that might save his doomed race. Time is fast running out for mankind, and only by making peace amongst themselves and with their ancient elven enemies can they end the Dark war – and undo the tragedy that’s plagued humans, elves, and Dark Beasts alike for the last three hundred years.

About Rachel

Rachel is an M/M erotic romance author, a freelance writer and editor, and the Managing Editor of Riptide Publishing. She’s also a sadist with a pesky conscience, shamelessly silly, and quite proudly pervish. Fortunately, all those things make writing a lot more fun for her… if not so much for her characters.

When she’s not writing about hot guys getting it on (or just plain getting it; her characters rarely escape a story unscathed), she loves to read, hike, camp, sing, perform in community theater, and glue captions to cats. She also has a particular fondness for her very needy dog, her even needier cat, and shouting at kids to get off her lawn.

She’s a Twitter addict, and she blogs every M/W/F at Fantasy Unbound. She also keeps a website, of course, with all her current and upcoming projects. She loves to hear from readers!

Misadventures in Stock Photography: Part the 97th (The return of the return of the return of Torso Guy)



Congrats to Kelly, who won Texas Winter (The Heart of Texas #2) by RJ Scott! Texas Winter was released by Silver Publishing on November 19.

Congrats to Cori and Lilli, who each won copies of Honored Vow (Change of Heart #3) by Mary Calmes! Honored Vow is being released by Dreamspinner Press today.



Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be catching up with Torso Guy. (Curious how he got his name? You can find out here.) Don’t forget that you can hover your mouse cursor over the covers to see how I used the title in the story. 🙂

When

the Third (or, as he preferred to be known, R2D3) won both the coveted title of

and the not-quite-so-prestigious title of

, he developed an immediate craving for

– maybe a

or a

. While he was trying to make up his mind, he started a

of laundry and used plenty of

, hoping it would get rid of that pesky infestation, then checked to see if he’d received new

from either the

or

. He thought Planet Mail from

would be great, since neither was there to play

with him – oh, how he longed to be pressed against them,

!

If that made sense to you, you should be very worried. 😉
