Ebook giveaway: A Forbidden Rumspringa by Keira Andrews [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Tracy, who won Caught! (The Shamwell Tales #1) by JL MerrowCaught! is being released today by Samhain Publishing.



Many thanks to Keira Andrews for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, A Forbidden Rumspringa, for a lucky commenter to win! A Forbidden Rumspringa will be released by KA Books on September 3.

When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?

In a world where every detail of life – down to the width of a hat brim – is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he’ll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else – something he can’t name.

Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can’t put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.

Now that they’ve found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

Ebook giveaway: Stripped Away (Stripped Clean #2) by Ellis Carrington [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Ellis Carrington for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m romance, Stripped Away (Stripped Clean #2), for a lucky commenter to win!

He doesn’t recognize himself.
David Moorehouse has spent his life hiding behind masks. Nice guy. Best friend. Reverend” kid. After finding his father dead on the floor, he’s been stripped of his job at the family church and his identity as the quiet, nice guy. The life he knew is over, and he doesn’t know what to do next.

He knows anger better than anyone.
Ricky Slade is itching for a fight. By the time he meets David, he’s struggling to save his business, his best friend, his drug-addict brother, and his own sanity. He’s got no patience for his business partner’s judgmental sibling showing up and getting in his face.

Their furious heat turns into a fiery inferno, but Ricky’s fresh off a bad breakup, and David is getting guilt-tripped by his family and his ex. Every time they fight, they fall into bed, but will that be enough when things around them come apart?

Be advised, this book contains: two small town, blue-collar men with big egos and bigger trucks, more emotional baggage than they can carry, and highly-charged man on man action.
