Many thanks to Valentina Heart for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m paranormal romance, What Doesn’t Kill You, for a lucky commenter to win! What Doesn’t Kill You will be released June 5 by Loose Id.

After another disastrous sexual escapade, Jae only has escape in mind. Running down the stairs he slips and the first thing he sees once he wakes up is a gorgeous stranger offering him a future with just a gaze.

Kian is a light demon who’s been looking for his chosen one for years. Even with a set goal in mind it has never been an easy path, but once he sees Jae and all the pieces fit into place the clock starts ticking and they run for their lives, trying to reach that perfect future.

With demons at their heels and dangers lurking behind every corner Kian and Jae have to rely on each other – find their strengths, defeat their enemies and nurture their delicate, still forming connection. They have to fight for their love and from belittled individuals become those who succeed.

About Valentina

Valentina Heart lives at different locations in Split, at the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Like the directions of her stories her life takes a new twist with every passing year and she welcomes every single one.

As an avid reader for many years, she had a habit of mixing fiction with reality, until she realized that she could simply breathe life to her characters and make them as real as they could get. From forever romantic to deeply troubled, they bring joy to their creator as well as frustration with their naughty behavior.

Kinky imagination aside, she enjoys music and movies just as much as reading, but give her summer all year round and she’ll be ready to free climb, swim, or stretch in all those mind stirring yoga positions.

You can find out more about Valentina at her website, on Goodreads, or on Facebook.

Ebook Giveaway: Learning the Ropes (Sex Sells #3) by Kim Dare [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Kim Dare for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released kinky m/m romance, Learning the Ropes (Sex Sells #3), for a lucky commenter to win! Learning the Ropes is Kim’s 75th published work – congrats, Kim! 🙂

Working for a company whose slogan is ‘Sex sells and we’re very good at sex’ isn’t easy for a man with an apparently inexhaustible ability to blush. Things only get more embarrassing for Floyd when he’s sent to construct an advertising campaign for a BDSM club.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the owner of the club is Peter Ingram, the silent partner in SKIN designs, which technically makes him Floyd’s boss. If he screws this up, Floyd’s going to be looking for a new job. His only option is to set aside his embarrassment and throw himself into learning everything there is to know about leather.

But when Peter agrees to teach Floyd what submission really means, suddenly it’s not only his job that’s at risk.

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 75 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: Where Nerves End (Tucker Springs #1) by L.A. Witt [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Layla A, who won Switch (True Colors #4) by Clare LondonSwitch is being released today by Dreamspinner Press.



Many thanks to L.A. Witt for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Where Nerves End (Tucker Springs #1), for a lucky commenter to win! Where Nerves End will be released on June 3 by Amber Allure. The second book in the Tucker Springs series, Second Hand, will be written by Marie Sexton and Heidi Cullinan.

Welcome to Tucker Springs, Colorado: Population, 70-something-thousand. Home to beautiful mountain views, two respected universities, and a ridiculously high cost of living.

Jason Davis can handle a breakup. And an overwhelming mortgage. And a struggling business. And the excruciating pain that keeps him up at night thanks to a shoulder injury. Handling all of it at once? Not so much. When his shoulder finally pushes him to a breaking point, he takes a friend’s advice and gives acupuncture a try.

Michael Whitman is a single dad struggling to make ends meet. When a mutual friend refers a patient, and that patient suggests a roommate arrangement to alleviate their respective financial strains, Michael jumps at the opportunity.

Living together would be easy if Jason wasn’t so damned attracted to Michael. Good thing Michael’s straight, or the temptation might just be too much.

Well, their mutual friend says Michael is straight…

About L.A. Witt

L.A. Witt is an M/M erotica writer who, after three years in Okinawa, Japan, has recently relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a three-headed clairvoyant parakeet named Fred. There is some speculation that this move was not actually because of her husband’s military orders, but to help L.A. close in on her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who has also recently transferred to Omaha. So, don’t anyone tell Lauren. She’s not getting away this time…

You can find out more about L.A. at her website, blog, Twitter, and Facebook.

Ebook Giveaway: The Chimera Affair by Keira Andrews [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Jess1, who won A Series of Ordinary Adventures by Stevie Carroll!



Many thanks to Keira Andrews for donating an ebook copy of her recently released m/m romantic suspense, The Chimera Affair, for a lucky commenter to win!

When young Sebastian Brambani meets a sexy and exciting older man, he’s easily seduced. But for spy Kyle Grant, it’s all business. Sebastian is simply a pawn in Kyle’s mission to acquire a dangerous chemical weapon from Sebastian’s criminal father. Kyle’s life is his work for a shadowy international agency protecting the world from evil, and he can’t worry about what will happen to Sebastian when the job is done.

Sebastian’s unwitting role in Kyle’s plan is the last straw for his ruthless father, who has been embarrassed by his gay son for the last time. But when Kyle discovers Sebastian could be the key to finding the deadly Chimera, he rescues him from a hired hitman and fights to keep him alive. Can a hardened spy and naive college student take down a criminal kingpin, stay one step ahead of the killers on their trail – and fight the scorching attraction between them?

Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be catching up with Candy Cane Guy… again. And maybe I should warn you ahead of time that it’s likely you’ll get whiplash reading this one. 🙂

Said Candy Cane Guy, “It all happens

dream perchance – they think I’m just

, but ever since I fell afoul of

, I’m actually

!

from

unattainable. Instead of being the

and forming a

to become one of the carefree

, now I’m working a job

make ends meet. Asking people, ‘

‘ during the day and working

p0rn0 at night is a real drag, when I’d much rather be

, trying to appease his near-

appetites and waiting for him to tell me, ‘

!'”

Well. Um. Look! Over there!
