Ebook giveaway: Mark of the Familiar and Gift of the Familiar by Alex Whitehall [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Alex Whitehall for donating ebook copies of Mark of the Familiar, plus the forthcoming sequel, Gift of the Familiar, for a lucky commenter to win! Gift of the Familiar will be released by Storm Moon Press on December 13.

Ellis, having killed his abusive master, is placed in the custody of a safe house for magical beings. Within those brick walls, he finds more than safety. But William has dealt with people’s unwanted attentions his entire life and wants nothing to do with Ellis or his devotion. Except Ellis is determined to convince William that their bond is more than just skin deep and that together they can make something magical.

This story was previously released as part of the Written in Flesh anthology.


In Gift of the Familiar, Ellis and William have found their happy ever after in each other’s arms. But that doesn’t mean they can’t keep life – and love – interesting. As they celebrate First Day together, Ellis learns the origins of the day and of his people. In the spirit of the holiday, William gives Ellis a length of rope to further explore the boundaries of their relationship. In return, Ellis does his best to show he understands exactly what giving, and submitting, are all about.

This story was previously released as part of the Milk and Cookies and Handcuffs anthology.

About Alex

Alex Whitehall may have grown up, but still wants to believe in magic—fairies, wishes, and things that go bump in the night – as long as it has a happy ending. Since none of that seems to exist in real life, Alex creates make-believe worlds where suffering is stopped, passions never cool, and the leads always end up happier than they started.

When not writing, reading, riding horses, working, running, reading, working and being social, Alex is sleeping.

You can find out more about Alex on via blog, Goodreads, and Twitter.

Ebook giveaway: Soups and Diners by Alex Whitehall [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Alex Whitehall for donating an ebook copy of her recently released holiday m/m romance, Soups and Diners, for a lucky commenter to win!

Two days before Christmas, just after his best friend’s wedding, Max is in a diner when he’s joined by Stan, another wedding guest. Getting to know each other ensues with some awkwardness, teasing, and fun conversation. They seem to hit it off, but Stan has reservations, wondering if Max is too good to be true, and Max has a history of bad boyfriend choices. Will meeting each other be a Christmas miracle – or a prettily wrapped present that’s really an empty box?

About Alex

If there are two types of people in the world, Alex Whitehall probably isn’t one of them, despite being a person. Her – for lack of a better pronoun – favorite pastimes include reading, horseback riding, reading, watching geek-tastic television, reading, and running. While Alex prefers writing over doing anything else (except maybe reading), sometimes she emerges from the cave to be social and to hunt for food at the local market. She can be found blogging, searching the Internet for more books to read, and tending after her aloe plant Cornwall. You can find out more about Alex on her blog, at Goodreads, and on Twitter.

Congrats to Beatrice, who won Search Me (Cover Me #3) by L.A. WittSearch Me is being released by Carnal Passions today.



Many thanks to Alex Whitehall for donating an ebook copy of her recently released historical holiday m/m romance, A Gift of Mistletoe, for a lucky commenter to win! (Please to ignore how completely unhistorical the cover looks – it was used for all of the short holiday romances in the Dreamspinner Press 2011 Advent Calendar.)

After heading home from university for Christmas, Harry takes a gamble and confesses his feelings to Theodore Dorry, his brother’s tutor. Magically, Theodore feels the same way, but both know the relationship doesn’t have much hope of surviving the ramifications of society’s judgments. However, for those with the courage to try, sometimes Christmas can grant miracles.
