Ebook giveaway: Blood in the Water (An Act of Piracy #1) (2nd ed) by Tami Veldura [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Tami Veldura for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming re-released swashbuckling m/m romance, Blood in the Water (An Act of Piracy #1) (2nd ed), for a lucky commenter to win! Tami will release Blood in the Water on December 19.

Kyros Vindex, treasure-hunter, has a problem. He’s carrying a torch for a fellow pirate with the sexual awareness of a teaspoon. Rumors say the man has killed hundreds. He’s determined to knock some sense into the work-a-holic that captains the Midnight Sun, but damned if he knows how.

Eric Deumont has more pressing concerns than the treasure-obsessed Kyros. There’s a creature inked into his chest that no witch in the seas will lay hands on for all the gold in the world. He knows it gives the Midnight Sun a cursed reputation and that doesn’t make living any easier. He has heard stories of spirits trapped for lifetimes inside spelled puzzle jars. Eric tracked down three of the pieces for such a jar with a lead number four. The fifth is still out there.

Even then, the spirit of vengeance that lives in Eric’s skin has no intention of giving up such easy access to the mortal realm. It craves blood and the light of the moon allows it to wreak unchecked havoc. Cursed is an insult. This is madness.

Ebook giveaway: The Working Elf Blues by Piper Vaughn [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Piper Vaughn for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m holiday romance, The Working Elf Blues, for a lucky commenter to win! The Working Elf Blues will be released by Less Than Three Press on December 17.

Garnet Evergreen has never heard of an elf abandoning the North Pole for a human, but he yearns to be the first. Ever since he saw Wes, the boy with sorrowful eyes, Garnet felt an undeniable kinship. Over the years, he’s watched that boy grow into a man, and now he’s determined to give Wes a Christmas he’ll never forget. If only Garnet had thought to test his father’s sleigh before leaving…

Orphaned as a child, Wes spends every Christmas alone at his cabin. When he’s woken by a suspicious boom and finds a wrecked sleigh and an unconscious elf, he doesn’t know how to react. Wes isn’t fanciful. He doesn’t give much credence to the stories about Santa Claus and flying reindeer. But a part of him wants desperately to believe when Garnet promises forever, even if life has taught him that no one ever stays…

Ebook giveaway: Fire and Water by Andrew Grey [CONTEST CLOSED]



Congrats to DebraG, Dreamy, and Paula, who won ebook copies of Tied Together (The Dark Angels #2) (2nd ed) by Z Allora!



Many thanks to Andrew Grey for donating an ebook copy of his forthcoming m/m romance, Fire and Water, for a lucky commenter to win! Fire and Water will be released by Dreamspinner Press on December 15.

Officer Red Markham knows about the ugly side of life after a car accident left him scarred and his parents dead. His job policing the streets of Carlisle, PA, only adds to the ugliness, and lately, drug overdoses have been on the rise. One afternoon, Red is dispatched to the local Y for a drowning accident involving a child. Arriving on site, he finds the boy rescued by lifeguard Terry Baumgartner. Of course, Red isn’t surprised when gorgeous Terry won’t give him and his ugly mug the time of day.

Overhearing one of the officer’s comment about him being shallow opens Terry’s eyes. Maybe he isn’t as kindhearted as he always thought. His friend Julie suggests he help those less fortunate by delivering food to the elderly. On his route he meets outspoken Margie, a woman who says what’s on her mind. Turns out, she’s Officer Red’s aunt.

Red and Terry’s worlds collide as Red tries to track the source of the drugs and protect Terry from an ex-boyfriend who won’t take no for an answer. Together they might discover a chance for more than they expected – if they can see beyond what’s on the surface.
