Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming re-released m/m holiday romance, Nowhere to Hide (2nd ed), for a lucky commenter to win! Nowhere to Hide (2nd ed) will be released December 22 by JMS Books.

In recovery after a serious car accident, Dan struggles with pain and depression until it becomes an ingrained part of his life. His most important support has come from his best friend and boyfriend Aaron, yet Dan knows he’s not giving as much as taking from the relationship.

When he and Aaron are snowed in at a winter sports resort, Dan has to face up to both his physical and emotional restraints. Aaron is determined and devoted, and always willingly there for Dan, but Dan can see his weariness. Aaron wants Dan to accept his love fully, for them to become the best and most intimate of lovers. But how much longer will Aaron wait?

It takes a particularly bitter Christmas – and the weirdest of dreams – to give Dan the courage to grasp what’s important to him, and find the way back to health and love.

About Clare

Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home, she juggles her writing with the weekly wash, waiting for the far distant day when she can afford to give up her day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters.

Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter 3 stage and plenty of other projects in mind… she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fueled family home.

All the details and free fiction are available at her website. Visit her today and say hello!

You can also visit Clare at her blog, on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, GoodReads, and the GLBT Wiki.

Ebook giveaway: Flying Colors (True Colors #5) by Clare London [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Melissa, who won Corruption (Diversion #3) by Eden WintersCorruption is being released today by Rocky Ridge Books.

Congrats to laura m, who won Love Lessons by Heidi CullinanLove Lessons is being released today by Samhain Publishing.



Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Flying Colors (True Colors #5) (about characters Red and Carter, mentioned in True Colors), for a lucky commenter to win! Flying Colors will be released by Dreamspinner Press on October 7.

Red De Vere appears to have everything – good looks, a prestigious job, attention from the paparazzi, and a choice of lovers. But one day he takes an outrageous step too far at a formal embassy dinner, and the press turns on him. Shocked, he realizes it’s time to find something better in life than partying. He envies the love that his friends Miles and Zeke have, and when he dares to consider that possibility for himself, his hopes and desires rest in his quiet, serious friend Carter Davison.

Carter loved a man who cheated on him, then died violently, and he refuses to make himself vulnerable again. He knows Red is interested; Red has been supportive and admiring since they met. And Carter’s honest enough to admit he’s attracted to Red. But Carter can also think of nothing worse than being the lover of someone in the public eye. Playboy Red must stay an attractive friend, that’s all.

While Red yearns for something real, Carter has some sweet, sexy secrets that might surprise even Red. If Carter dares emerge from his shell, and Red pursues a more rewarding path, romance could spark. Then there’s no telling what might happen.

Ebook giveaway: Summer Lovin’ Anthology by Clare London, Chrissy Munder, JL Merrow, Josephine Myles, & Lou Harper [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Kim W, who won the entire College Fun & Gays series by Erica Pike!



Many thanks to the authors of Pink Squirrel Press for donating an ebook copy of their freshly released Summer Lovin’ m/m romance anthology!

Summer is here, and the loving is easy! Slake your thirst for romance with Summer Lovin’ - an anthology for lazy days and summer sunshine.

The stories are all m/m contemporary romances with a smattering of smut, but there’s a real range of locations and atmospheres here. Travel from Venice Beach in LA, via Lake Michigan, to the traditional British resort of Brighton, a remote holy island, and a small lake in deepest, darkest Somerset. Go skinny-dipping in a disused quarry. Hang out with the boys in the band. Meet a bad boy made good, and one with a shy smile that hides a dark secret. Or maybe get your heart pillaged by a Viking re-enactor.

With gentle humour, hot sauce and a hefty scoop of romance, enjoy a quintet of sultry stories of men loving men from Clare London, Chrissy Munder, JL Merrow, Josephine Myles, and Lou Harper.

The mercury’s not the only thing that’s rising!

Summer Hire by Chrissy Munder
It’s a scene right out of Jim’s porn-fuelled fantasies: the tool-strewn workshop and the hunky, tattooed mechanic with his coveralls unzipped to the waist. But Aaron’s not just Jim’s dream guy – he-s his new employer.

In the sweltering Michigan heat, Jim struggles to control his libido in the face of endless provocation. But Aaron’s determined not to be Jim’s summer fling. This bad boy made good isn’t looking for a short-lived romance.

If he wants Aaron to take him on as more than an employee, Jim’s going to have to do what doesn’t come naturally – and think seriously about his future.

Lost & Found on Lindisfarne by JL Merrow
It was a hot summer’s day on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The lanes were dusty underfoot, the languid breeze was heavy with the scent of the North Sea, and a Viking had just offered to buy my daughter…

When single father Chris meets a Viking re-enactor on Lindisfarne, he thinks it’s the perfect recipe for a holiday fling – and nothing more. Chris had a relationship with a free spirit like Ian before, and it didn’t end well for him or for his daughter Kelis. But Chris hasn’t reckoned with the Viking way of taking all you’re willing to give – and coming back for more.

Salt ‘n’ Vinegar by Clare London
Brighton in the summer is a great place to be for a young gay man looking for a good time with no strings. Psychology student Joe’s spending his uni vacation working in a chip shop with a succession of ever-worse punning names and picking up guys on the beach for casual hook-ups – but something makes him want to take it slow with gorgeous chip shop regular Steven.

The trouble is, Steven’s shy smile hides a dark secret, and his past is about to come back to bite them both.

Werewolves of Venice Beach by Lou Harper
The naked man came out of nowhere…

Bryan’s an over-achieving, self-confessed nerdy student, who’s taken a summer job house-sitting in Venice Beach. He’s out of his depth when it comes to a guy from the wrong side of the tracks like Slade.

Covered in tribal tattoos and with a penchant for skinny-dipping, Slade’s the lead singer in a band. He’s way out of Bryan’s league. But he’s sending out all kinds of mixed signals. And after a pot-fuelled afternoon, Bryan thinks he’s found the astonishing reason why Slade’s giving so little away.

By Quarry Lake by Josephine Myles
Tommy’s been away from his home in rural Somerset for three years. Long enough to sort out who he is, and to get over the feelings of confusion and shame that blighted his lifelong friendship with farmer’s boy Rob. He’s out and proud, now – and he’s coming home to claim back what he lost.

Rob’s the one who stayed behind, working on the farm with little time for a social life. With Tommy coming back into his life, he could have a lot to gain – and everything to lose.

He’s going to have to take a leap of faith. Straight into the ice cold waters of Quarry Lake.

Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her freshly rereleased romantic suspense, Freeman (2nd ed), for a lucky commenter to win!

Freeman’s return to the city is quiet, without fuss. Another client: another case. He’ll source what they need and be on his way. But he’s been missed by more people than he thought: his ex-wife, his ex-lover, and his ex-business partner. And at least one of them wants him the hell gone again.

Freeman – private, controlled – just does his job. But when he strikes up an unusual friendship with the young runaway Kit, trouble comes looking for both men, ready to expose secrets that can destroy their fragile trust. Yet, for Kit, Freeman’s more than ready for the challenge.

Ebook giveaway: Peepshow by Clare London [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Clare London for donating an ebook copy of her freshly released m/m romance, Peepshow, for a lucky commenter to win!

Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new shopping centre. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break – and plays sexy to the camera.

Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s behaving like a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch.

Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide an explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to the real-life chance of romance?
