Ebook giveaway: Taken (Stranded #2) by Andrew Grey [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Andrew Grey for donating an ebook copy of his forthcoming m/m romantic suspense, Taken (Stranded #2), for a lucky commenter to win! Taken will be released by Dreamspinner Press on October 28.

On the day he and Roman Capanelli were to be married, Malik Stevens wakes up in a small room with very little light. Time must be passing, because a door opens from time to time and food is left for him – that’s his only connection to the outside world. Roman is a choreographer on Broadway, and he’s waiting for Malik at the park with all their friends, ready to start their marriage ceremony. When Malik doesn’t show up, Roman is nearly heartbroken thinking he’s been left at the altar. But soon he understands that Malik hasn’t stood him up, he’s been taken.

Desperate and determined, Roman begins searching for clues to aid the police. Then, when Malik escapes, the couple continues the search until they ferret out the culprit, and in the process open up a box of secrets. An orphan who grew up in a foster home, Malik knows his father was a serial killer and his mother died of grief and shame after his father was convicted. Now it seems some of his parents’ skeletons still hang in the family closet. But was Malik’s kidnapping meant to uncover those secrets or to hide them forever?

Ebook Giveaway: Love Comes Silently by Andrew Grey [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Andrew Grey for donating an ebook copy of his forthcoming m/m romance, Love Comes Silently, for a lucky commenter to win! Love Comes Silently will be released on October 1 by Dreamspinner Press.

Caring for a loved one with cancer is tough. Doing it alone is overwhelming – especially when that loved one is a child. But ever since Ken Brighton’s partner left him, Ken has spent his days at the hospital with his daughter, Hanna, hoping for a miracle. Maybe the mysterious care packages that appear for Hanna don’t qualify, but they bring a spark of hope into his and Hanna’s tired life – and so does Ken’s neighbor, former singer Patrick Flaherty.

For two years Patrick hasn’t been able to focus on anything but the life he should have had. An injury robbed him of his voice, and the idea of introducing himself to new people intimidates him. But over the past months, he’s watched as his neighbor nursed his sick child, and once he meets Ken, Patrick starts to crave a life with him – a life he isn’t sure he can have.

Ken doesn’t realize he’s fallen in love until the doctors send Hanna home, saying there’s nothing more they can do: Hanna will either recover or succumb. Ken’s heart is set on a new beginning – with both Patrick and Hanna. But Patrick’s silence leaves Ken wondering what Patrick wants.

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: The Fire Trilogy (Kian, Darach, & Eoin) by RJ Scott [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Kaetrin, who won A Solid Core of Alpha by Amy Lane!

Congrats to Linda C, who won Landfall by Lori Toland!

Congrats to Anna, who won Strays by Elizabeth Noble! Strays is being released today by Dreamspinner Press.



To celebrate the upcoming release of Eoin, the final book in her Fire Trilogy, RJ Scott is donating an ebook set of the entire trilogy (Kian, Darach, and Eoin) for a lucky commenter to win!

Kian (Book 1)
Kian ap Rhys is a warlock, a protector and wielder of The Fire. This fire shines purest in a warlock and is coveted by the Nameless.  When his uncle’s Fire is stolen, Kian vows vengeance and seeks the aid of Regan Campbell.

As a hunter of the supernatural predators Regan is the perfect choice to aid Kian on his quest, but Regan is suspicious of the warlock and unwilling to help.

It isn’t until their lives are endangered by The Nameless and all choice has been stripped away that they realize they must trust one another or be destroyed.

Darach (Book 2)
Darach is distraught. Not only has he lost his best friend Kian to worlds unknown, but he is unable to follow. The only time someone of his world can pass to the Other World is when the barriers are thinnest at All Hallows Eve, but he can’t wait that long. He needs to find Kian now before the Other World destroys him. Who in Uffern knows what is happening to his friend in the dangerous other place?

There is only one solution, he needs greater magic to pass across to the other world.

There is an ancient tribe of travelers, Cariad, that City people are told to avoid, users of magic so perverted and awful that just to talk of them means instant banishment from Council-run City.

This tribe, the Cariad, are the stuff of children’s nightmares, stories of death and destruction follow this tribe wherever they go, users of strong magic. It’s only his desperate need to rescue Kian that drives him to make contact with the Cariad, and with Ceithin.

Not is all as it seems, and with the Guardian of the Fire tracking them down, Ceithin must teach Darach the ways long forgotten to control Fire, before they are found.

Eoin (Book 3) will be released by Silver Publishing on September 17.

Eoin is faced with the end of times. With his friends at his side, can he rescue the prisoner who might hold the secrets to winning the battle between Cariad and City as well as the key to his heart?

His bond brothers, Kian and Darach, probably hate him for his necessary lie, two-thirds of the Council wants him dead, and the prisoner’s amber Fire is killing them both.

The third book in the Fire Trilogy discovers more old Guardians, ancient Cariad magik, and not least of all the other half of Eoin: Trystyn.

About RJ

RJ Scott lives in the Chiltern hills just outside London, England. She loves reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror; however, her first real love will always be the world of romance. Her goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and more than a hint of happily ever after.

She is published with Silver Publishing and Dreamspinner Press and was nominated in the Love Romance Cafe Awards of 2010 as Best GLBTQ Author, for Best Gay Paranormal / Horror (Oracle) and as Best Paranormal Author. Oracle was also nominated for Best Gay Paranormal / Horror 2010 in Elisa Rolle’s Rainbow Awards and was awarded an Honorable Mention (5th). RJ’s contemporary romance, The Christmas Throwaway, remained at number one on Amazon and at All Romance over Christmas and into the New Year. She cannot believe how lucky 2010 was for her and her foray into the world of MM writing.

RJ writes across all the genres, but if pushed she says she enjoys writing contemporary romance over the rest. Her newest release, Back Home, has already received favourable reviews on the Silver site and on Goodreads.

You can find out more about RJ and her books at her website, on Facebook, and via Twitter.
