(Edited to add: Thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating a second ebook!)

A New Normal by Carol Lynne
You never forget your first love, but what if your first love never forgot you…and orchestrated an unconventional reunion?
Less than a year after the death of his wife, musician Charlie Foster agreed to perform at a convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He thought getting away from New York for a few days would be good for him, but he didn’t expect to see the first person he’d ever fallen in love with.

Jake Pierson gave his heart to Charlie when he was barely fifteen years old. As best friends, Jake believed he and Charlie would be together forever, but when Charlie took the easier path in life, Jake was left to deal with a future without the man he loved.

Jake knew tricking Charlie into performing at a conference he’d helped organise was low-handed, but he had a promise to keep and a future to build.

Convention Confusion by Amber Kell
Dressing up as a girl can sometimes win you the man of your dreams.
Billy Ferris has adored Jennvian Fellows comics since he read the first edition. When the chance to meet the illustrator comes up he accepts his friends help to dress as his favourite character, space pirate female Kixie.

Little does he know that Jenn not only prefers men but is looking for the mate of his dreams to take back to his home world. Will Billy be able to show his true self and capture the man of his not-so-pure dreams.

Ninja Cupcakes by T.A. Chase
Ethan’s special talents and cupcakes bring him the love of his life.
Ethan Gallagher loves to bake, and his cupcakes are known throughout his area as being the best. When he agrees to do the desserts for a sci-fi convention his brother is putting on, Ethan gets a chance to realise his biggest fantasy.

One of the panelists is Callum MacLaughlin, a man Ethan’s been lusting after since they’d met four years ago. Ethan discovers Callum will be there, and he decides it’s time to make his move on the astrophysicist.

With the help of some special cupcakes, Ethan makes not only his dream come true, but the hopes of his brother and his best friend as well.

Operation: Get Spencer by Jambrea Jo Jones
Even if superpowers were real—Benjamin still might not get his man.
Benjamin and Spencer are spending the day at Comi-Con. Spencer is a comic geek and Benjamin would follow him anywhere. The only problem?

Spencer thinks Benjamin is straight and Benjamin just realized he is in love with his best friend. Is a day enough for Benjamin to convince Spencer that his love is more powerful than a locomotive and that it hit him faster than a speeding bullet? Tune in to find out if Benjamin saves the day.

Fan-Tastic by Stephani Hecht
Everybody knows the best lovers are geeks.
It’s time again for the annual Comic Book and Horror Convention. Normally, Deke liked to avoid these things. While he may be a well-known actor, he wasn’t hunky or a beefcake and he was always overlooked. In fact, most people like to call him ‘the geek of geeks’. But, the producers of his popular TV series don’t care and they order Deke to go. So, while he knows he won’t have any fun he has no choice but to attend.

Blake harboured a crush on Deke even before the other man became famous. When he finds out that Deke will be at the convention, Blake knows he has to attend as well. Since he is trying to promote his own comic, Blake decides that he can mix a little business with his fun.

To Blake’s dismay, not only does Deke not remember him, but the actor refuses to believe that Blake could have any romantic feelings for a geek. Blake decides that he can’t let this opportunity slip through his fingers, though. He may have given up on Deke all those years ago, but not this time. Will Blake be able to convince Deke to give him a chance? Or will the final credits roll before they find love?

Rough Awakening by Devon Rhodes
When Mario sets out to find a roommate for the convention, little does he know he’ll end up finding much more.
Is there anything worse than learning you have to share a hotel room with your ex-boyfriend and his new love? Mario has to scramble to find someone else to share with and ends up reconnecting with a sexy acquaintance…in more ways than one.

Jordan remembers Mario from two conventions ago and goes along with his need to find a roommate. Sparks fly between them from their first phone call and everything looks more than promising for a very memorable convention.

But when two tops tango, which one is guaranteed the lead? It ends up being a rough awakening for one of these alpha athletes…

Ebook Giveaway: Tagged & Bagged (EMS Heat #14) or Left in the Darkness (Haven Coffee House Boys #2) by Stephani Hecht [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating winner’s choice of an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Tagged and Bagged (EMS Heat #14), OR an ebook copy of her forthcoming young adult m/m romance, Left in the Darkness (Haven Coffee House Boys #2)! Both ebooks will be released by eXtasy Books on June 1.

Houston is used to being the official wallflower of Flint’s EMS community. Not only has he grown up that way, because he was always so soft-spoken, but he was usually too busy cleaning up his twin’s messes to have time to worry about anything else. Then when his twin falls in love, Houston finds himself alone and floundering as he tries to adjust to all the changes.

Born and raised in Flint, Rich knows how hard life can be. When he joined the police force, he became even more jaded. So, the last thing expects is to find himself attracted to one of the biggest brats in the city. Sure, most people think Houston is meek and quiet, but they’ve never seen the real side of the medic like Rich has.

Then Houston makes the mistake of pissing off the most dangerous criminal in Flint and Rich finds himself rushing to the rescue. Will Rich be in time to save Houston or will they both end up tagged and bagged?

While mostly physically healed from a gay bashing that almost left him dead, Taylor is still an emotional mess. Not only does he have to deal with the fact that his own brother was one of the attackers, but Taylor has been disowned by his father as well. The only bright spot in Taylor’s life is his small group of friends, but even they have their own issues. Christian is now angry all the time. James is having to deal with his own homophobic father. Devlin is wondering if he’ll ever be able to measure up to other’s expectations. Worst of all, Andy seems to be walking down a path that will only lead to his destruction. Can the Haven Coffee House Boys overcome all their obstacles? Or will the darkness overcome them?

Ebook Giveaway: Ervin’s Dilemma (Wayne County Wolves #1) by Stephani Hecht OR The Helpful Swan (Cob Brothers #3) by Stephani Hecht & Amber Kell [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Cindy, who won Hard Tail by JL MerrowHard Tail is being released by Samhain Publishing today.



Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming paranormal m/m romance, Ervin’s Dilemma (Wayne County Wolves #1), or her forthcoming paranormal m/m romance written with Amber Kell, The Helpful Swan (The Cob Brothers #3), for a lucky commenter to win!

First there were the Lost Shifters; now there are the Wayne County Wolves.

Ever since his old pack had given up their criminal ways and joined the Wayne County Wolves, Ervin’s been depressed. Not only is his new pack completely goody two-shoes, it’s also sadly lacking gay members. So Ervin has little hope of ever finding his mate. But just when he least expects it, he finds shy yet sexy wolf shifter Miles. Unfortunately, Miles has vowed to never belong to a formal pack, which makes him a rogue; in the shifter world that makes him both dangerous and a target.

Although Miles tries to resist Ervin, he can’t help being drawn to the domineering man. When Mile’s siblings are captured, he knows he won’t be able to get them back on his own. Will Ervin help? And at what price?

Ervin’s Dilemma will be released by eXtasy Books on May 15.

When Prince Kedrik Cobb sees the sexy man in leather decorating the store window, he knows he has to see the man again. Unfortunately, his date for the night didn’t figure into his plans and he continues on his way. He can’t forget about the sexy stranger, so a few days later he finds himself returning to the store.

Cadell Shumaker has watched Kedrik for most of his life. After following the man from Aria to earth, he’d placed his store right in Kedrik’s path. Despite his positioning it takes a while before Kedrik notices him and falls into his arms. But when Kedrik finds out Cadell isn’t as innocent as he appears and a certain shape-changing spell takes effect, more than a little magic is needed before this couple can make their way to happily ever after.

The Helpful Swan will be released by Resplendence Publishing on May 9.

Ebook Giveaway: Playing the Point (Blue Line Hockey #6) by Stephani Hecht [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to Joanne B, who won Facing Fitz by Kim DareFacing Fitz is being released today by Resplendence Publishing.



Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, Playing the Point (Blue Line Hockey #6), for a lucky commenter to win! Playing the Point will be released by eXtasy Books on March 15.

While growing up, Zimon always lived in his older brother’s shadow. While his sibling went on to join the military and become a war hero, things grew even worse when Zimon’s life spiraled out of control and he found himself in a dark place where he almost lost his life.

Then Zimon’s brother fell in love and changed all the rules in their once, nice, neat life and now Zimon finds himself in the role of supporting his brother in his newest dream, opening and running the biggest hockey rink in the metro Detroit area. While Zimon had never envisioned his future being the manager of a front service desk of a rink, it beats working as a shot-boy at the gay club, so he jumps at the chance for the new job.

Bryce never imagined that, while at the height of his NHL career, he’d find himself becoming part owner of a rundown hockey rink. Yet, that’s exactly what happens when a group of his friends get it in their crazy heads to start the new business. One day, when he’s in town, he decides to check the place out. When he clashes with the bratty, yet cute man running the front desk, Bryce is both annoyed and intrigued.

Will Zimon and Bryce ever be able to get over their differences? Or will the final buzzer sound before they find a way to happiness?
