Families should grow, not shrink. It’s been on Jon Kechter’s mind since before he tied the knot with his millionaire lover, Cole Fenton. Now hoping to adopt, Jon and Cole search for a mother-to-be willing to let them love her baby, but the interminable wait is wearing on them both.

Jon is close to his father, George, but until Cole, he didn’t have anyone else. Now George is pushing Cole to reconcile with his estranged mother. When the three of them spend Christmas with her in Munich, the results are disastrous. Jon and Cole resolve to stay positive, but no hope exists without a tinge of fear.

Ebook giveaway: In Search of a Story by Andrew Grey [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to DebraG, who won Backwoods Asylum by Megan DerrBackwoods Asylum is being released today by Less Than Three Press.



Many thanks to Andrew Grey for donating an ebook copy of his forthcoming m/m romantic suspense, In Search of a Story, for a lucky commenter to win! In Search of a Story will be released by Dreamspinner Press on May 31.

He’s searching for a story but finds so much more.

Brad Torrence is next on the chopping block at the newspaper where he works. Hungry for any source he can find, he runs across an ad in the classifieds: For Sale: Nursery Items, Never Used. It’s the lead he’s been looking for. Thinking a piece about the loss of a child will give him the edge he needs to keep his job, Brad follows up. He doesn’t expect a single man to answer.

Rather than being offended, Cory Wolfe finds sharing the story of his grief and pain liberating. He’s even surprised by the spark that strikes, and one story leads to another.

Brad digs into his stories and Cory’s life, eager to know everything about the man who’s caught his attention. But when a lead points him to the hospital where Cory works, he unearths a mystery that might have been safer left buried. Brad’s search for a story could prove deadly…

Ebook giveaway: The Argentine Seduction (The Chimera Affair #1.5) by Keira Andrews [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Keira Andrews for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m romantic suspense, The Argentine Seduction (The Chimera Affair #1.5), for a lucky commenter to win!

When brilliant university student Sebastian went on the run with deadly spy Kyle to escape assassins, he never imagined he’d end up a spy himself – or that he and Kyle would fall for each other. Now Sebastian’s ready for his first daring mission: to seduce a Russian arms dealer and steal missile plans before they fall into the wrong hands.

In the simmering heat of Buenos Aires, protective Kyle arrives as mission backup- – and fights his unexpected jealousy and powerful urge to keep Sebastian safe. When their plans go awry, Sebastian and Kyle must scramble to complete their mission and work together as equals. Romance and espionage aren’t easy bedfellows. Can two spies thwart the bad guys – and keep their love affair alive?
