Ebook giveaway: Oren’s Right (2nd ed) by Blaine D Arden



Congrats to Sula, who won Secrets and Bow Ties (Secrets #3) by Lou HarperSecrets and Bow Ties is being released today by Samhain Publishing.



Many thanks to Blaine D Arden for donating two ebook copies of her freshly re-released, award-winning m/m fantasy romance, Oren’s Right (2nd ed), for two lucky commenters to win! If you previously purchased the first edition, Blaine has a faq explaining how to get the second edition without additional cost.

Following his principles will break two hearts.

Forester Veld loses a piece of himself to mute baker Oren when they first meet, but Oren is vowed to Haram. When Haram is killed, Veld denies his heart to respect the mourning period. It’s the right thing to do.

During Haram’s funeral, Oren proudly bares the brands that show the nature of their love; Haram owned him, heart and body. The elves pity Oren and think he’s broken.

Veld has no intention of dishonouring Haram’s memory, but his death may not have been an accident. Only a forester can learn what the trees have seen. However, Oren’s independence is threatened, and if Veld does not offer what Oren needs, Oren may never be his to claim.

NOTE: This is the second revised/re-edited edition of Oren’s Right, and includes an extra bonus scene. It was previously published by Storm Moon Press.

No Misadventure today for reasons, but there is another exceptionally cute picture of Mayhem! Also, no post of any sort next Monday, as it’s a holiday in the US. Might not even by Linkity this Friday, if I decide to stretch my holiday weekend a bit. Remember, you can always poke around in the Archives for things you missed if you desperately need a fix. :)

Reading Update
Ideas & Inspirations for Art Journals & Sketchbooks by Suzanne McNeill. Ok short collection of examples from McNeill’s own “Sketch-Journals”, along with some tips for starting your own such journal and a list of basic supplies.
Painting Nature in Watercolor with Cathy Johnson: 37 Step-By-Step Demonstrations Using Watercolor Pencil and Paint by Cathy Johnson. Very good book about using watercolors (primarily watercolor pencils) to capture scenes from nature, ranging from forests to mountains to water to desert. Lots of great detail about technique and materials, too. (In the conclusion, Johnson mentions her friend Hannah Hinchman – I can definitely see similarities in their styles and subject matter!)
I am AspienGirl: The Unique Characteristics, Traits and Gifts of Females on the Autism Spectrum by Tania A Marshall. This was an odd book. Each page had a quote from an “AspienGirl”, another from some sort of adult caregiver (parents, teachers, grandparents, psychologists, etc), and a photo. The appendices had additional detail about typical characteristics/symptoms of females with Aspergers/high functioning autism and how female characteristics differ from those of males. The overall effect was chaotic and shallow. Plus the whole “AspienGirl”(r) annoyed me…

Ebook giveaway: Two Hearts One Voice (Mending the Rift #3) by Valentina Heart

Many thanks to Valentina Heart for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m fantasy romance, Two Hearts One Voice (Mending the Rift #3), for a lucky commenter to win! Two Hearts One Voice will be released by Totally Bound on June 2.

They are at war, fearing for each other, both carrying the upbringing of their children and the survival of their country. They are kings.

With the future of the throne secured, Rin and Merin still have little time to rejoice for their children or the unity of their kingdoms. Stuck in the middle of a battlefield, their lives prove to be once again at risk, Rin heads out on a long journey home with his heirs, leaving Merin to lead their army.

Rin receives his rightful title of a king from the Kari council and for once feels as if he belongs on the throne without Merin there to guide him. Missing his husband, he raises their children the best he can, but there’s no end to the war in sight and, after months of futile conflicts, Rin sees Merin cut down in battle.

Distraught and with no patience for his council, Rin threatens the Riki, making even his own men fear him.

Can Rin cope alone and still win the war, or will his sorrow mark the end of his reign?

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to mpreg.
Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

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.
