Blurb:

Dr. Åke Jörgensson is a scientist from Sweden whose invention of almost instant travel to any part of the universe will revolutionize space flight.

Khitain is a N’tari, a panther-like alien serving aboard a human space ship, and Åke’s boyfriend of three months.

On Christmas, they visit Åke’s parents for the first time. As if meeting his in-laws weren’t stressful enough, feelings of inadequacy and fear haunt Khitain. His N’tari descent makes him a killing machine, and one wrong move could wipe out what is dearest to him. Åke, however, has to deal with his family’s ignorance and Khitain’s reluctance to let go of his restraint.

When something terrible happens during their Christmas Morning walk, the situation gets out of hands.

Can love span even light years?

Number One/Nummer Eins

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to you all!
The German version of my Christmas Short Story ‘Two Ruined Christmas Eves’ released on Friday and something awesome happened: I made it to the top of the bestseller lists. My sweet, short Christmas read spots the Bestseller Icon on Amazon!
Believe me when I say I stared at the page, not knowing what to do now. Then, I did a happy dance. Never, ever did I think I would manage that. I’m still afraid I’ll wake up every moment, but for the last days, the story has been up there, sitting at the top, so I might be awake.
Every time someone looks at the bestseller list, they see my story. I can’t even begin to describe how it feels. My other stories hit the #100s, but I never had a bestseller before. It’s amazing.
I even pushed Andrew Grey’s story down to number two and hit the overall Romance Top 100.

The English version is still on #65 in the US, which makes me happy as well. This has been one of the best releases so far, and I’m still checking the screenshots I took, because I still can’t believe it. A huge, huge thank you, to everyone who bought it, read it and reviewed it. Thank you from all my heart. You guys are so awesome. You made my wish come true. ❤

I can’t think of a better way to end this year and start the new one. (Yeah, the year is not over yet, but still. It’s December)

As you’ll see, I’ll be blogging in English and German from now on. Eventually, this will be two blogs, but for now has to work. Also, brand new is my mailing list. You can sign up here, in order to get sneak peeks, discounts and so on. (Please note that I would never use your email addy for anything else!)

Thank you again. YOU GUYS ROCK!!

 



Ich möchte euch allen DANKE sagen!
Die deutsche Version meiner Weihnachtskurzgeschichte ist Freitag erschienen und es ist das Unvorstellbare passiert: Sie wurde ein Nummer Eins Bestseller. Meine sexy Kurzgeschichte trägt jetzt das Amazon Bestseller Schildchen.
Glaubt mir wenn ich sage, ich habe ewig auf die Seite geschaut und hatte keine Ahnung was ich tun sollte. War das ein Fehler? Hatte ich das alles nur geträumt? Ich habe es vermutet.
Die Geschichte ist immer noch auf Rang 1, also glaube ich nicht, dass ich noch schlafe, aber alleine mir vorzustellen, dass jeder, der in die Bestsellerliste schaut als erstes mein Buch sieht… das kann man nicht beschreiben.
Ich habe sogar Andrew Greys Buch auf Platz 2 verdrängt und war in den Top 100 der Liebesromane. Dieses Gefühl ist einfach unbeschreiblich. Ohne euch wäre das nicht gegangen.
Meine vorherigen Geschichten haben es in die #100 geschafft, aber das hier war noch viel besser!

Danke Euch, dass ihr mir diesen Wunsch erfüllt habt. Ich kann es immer noch nicht richtig begreifen, noch dazu, weil die Englische Version auch immer noch #63 in den USA ist. Ihr seid alle sowas von Spitze!  ❤

Das ist absolut der beste Weg, dieses Jahr zu beenden. Ich weiß dass wir noch ein paar Tage haben, aber trotzdem.

DANKE!!

Ich werde hier ab jetzt zweisprachig bloggen. Weiterhin gibt es jetzt einen Newsletter von mir. Anmelden könnt ihr euch hier. Eure Email Adresse ist sicher bei mir (Ich bekomme genug Spam um zu wissen wie blöd das ist).

COVERScenes from Adelaide Road

By Helena Stone

About the book:

Can a young man find the courage he never knew he had when faced with losing everything he holds dear?

A few months before his final exams in secondary school, nineteen-year-old Lennart Kelly discovers he’s inherited a house on Adelaide Road in Dublin from a grandfather he never knew. Having been ignored, bullied and abused for as long as he can remember, Lennart can’t wait to leave behind his father and the small town he grew up in. Moving away as soon as he finishes his exams doesn’t cure his deep-rooted insecurities though.

Meeting twenty-three-year-old Aidan Cassidy in a gay club on his second night in Dublin, scares Lennart. Used to being ignored and ridiculed, he doesn’t trust the attention he receives and can’t believe a man like Aidan could possibly be interested in him. It takes infinite patience and understanding from Aidan to slowly coax Lennart out of his shell.

But the past refuses to stay where it belongs and Lennart’s father is determined to take the house in Dublin off his son by whatever means necessary. Just when Lennart is learning to trust and embrace life, a violent attack threatens everything he holds dear. Suddenly Lennart is in danger of losing his house, the man he’s grown to love and maybe even his life. If Lennart wants to protect Aidan and safeguard his future, he’ll have to find the courage he never knew he had.

Excerpt:

 

We didn’t talk as we walked up the stairs or while we crossed the landing. I gestured for Aidan to walk into my room first, followed him in, turned, closed the door and froze. Panic settled deep in my stomach. What the fuck am I doing? The question screamed through my mind.

“Hey, what’s wrong?”

His breath caressed my shoulder. He stood just behind me. I imagined I felt his body heat on my skin.

“We don’t have to do this.”

Yes we do. I needed to follow this through so badly it hurt. I had to find my way back to the heat-driven confidence I’d felt before we’d climbed the stairs.

Aidan’s embrace restored some of my inner peace. His arms around my waist made me feel safe and his naked body, softly pressing into mine, underscored how badly I wanted this closeness and yet I still couldn’t bring myself to speak or turn around.

I grabbed one of his hands and pulled it lower until it touched my straining cock. My body might be able to tell him what I couldn’t bring myself to put into words.

“Okay.” He chuckled behind me. “So it’s not that you want to stop.”

“No, please don’t stop.” His gentle strokes sent waves of pleasure through my body.

“I won’t, unless you ask me to. Tell me what’s wrong though.”

My cheeks heated up as I tried to formulate an intelligent answer before blurting out the truth. “I don’t know what to do.”

“Look at me.” He released my cock and turned me around before resting his forehead against mine. “You don’t have to do anything. You can’t really get this wrong. If it feels good, it is good.”

His lips caressed mine. When his tongue traced the outline of my mouth, my fears evaporated and I pushed in closer, looking for the intimacy I’d never experienced before and craved like life-sustaining sustenance. His chest hairs tickled my bare body. When our cocks made contact heat flashed through me. The last of my fear evaporated as curiosity grew stronger.

 

 

About the Author:

 

Helena Stone can’t remember a life before words and reading. After growing up in a household where no holiday or festivity was complete without at least one new book, it’s hardly surprising she now owns more books than shelf space while her Kindle is about to explode.

The urge to write came as a surprise. The realisation that people might enjoy her words was a shock to say the least. Now that the writing bug has well and truly taken hold, Helena can no longer imagine not sharing the characters in her head and heart with the rest of the world.

Having left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the peace and quiet of the Irish Country side she divides her time between reading, writing, long and often wet walks with the dog, her part-time job in a library, a grown-up daughter and her ever loving and patient husband.

BookBlast: Flesh Market by Kate Lowell

KL_FleshMarketAuthor Name: Kate Lowell

Book Name: Flesh Market

Release Date: November 10, 2015

Blurb:

Special Agent Leo Gale is up a creek. A year and a half of deep cover is about to go up in flames. He needs help – something, someone to salvage the operation and save the lives of untold numbers of trafficked teenagers.

But he wasn’t expecting the partner they sent, or his own gut-punch of a response to the man.

Julian worked hard for that FBI Honors Internship. It was supposed to be a foot in the door. He’d never expected it to catapult him into the middle of a major undercover operation. Yet here he is, sleeping on a filthy mattress and using every trick in the book to avoid torture—and worse. He’s never felt so scared, or so alive, in his entire life, and he’s not sure if it’s the danger, or Leo, that’s making his heart race.

There’s no time to think about it, though. The operation is heating up, and Leo and Julian are running out of time and options. As choices become more difficult, they must find a way to take the traffickers down, or risk becoming just another set of organs for sale.

Pages or Words: 75,000 words 

Categories: Contemporary, Crime Fiction, Fiction, Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, Romance, Thriller

Excerpt:

Inside the bathroom, DeGraff peered behind the door and moved an OUT OF SERVICE FOR CLEANING sign from the back to the front.

Julian was at the sink at the far end of the room, staring into the mirror with water dripping off his face. DeGraff stepped into one of the stalls, and Leo went to wash his hands at one of the other sinks. Julian glanced up at him, then tore off some paper towel and wiped his face dry. He tossed the towel in the overflowing garbage can and slunk past Leo with all the angsty self-consciousness of a hormonal teenager.

Leo wished he had time to appreciate the performance, but he had a job to do. As Julian passed him, Leo spun and grabbed him from behind, pinning Julian’s arms to his side and covering his mouth. Julian made a startled noise, muffled by Leo’s hand, and began to thrash. He kicked Leo painfully in the shin, but by then DeGraff was out of the stall and had jabbed his syringe into Julian’s shoulder. Leo fought the young man down to the floor while DeGraff stood watch by the bathroom door. Five tense minutes later, Julian was completely spaced out, limp as a rag in Leo’s arms.

Meet the author:

Kate lives on the east coast of Canada, in an old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. She has one horse now, who still has medical issues, and three cats, all of which still have mental issues. She still refuses to get a dog, because who knows what would be wrong with it?

Kate loves to read and write. She also likes playing with computers and is going back to school to do a programming degree, just for giggles. Or the opportunity to take over the world. (Oh, who are we kidding? Think of all the work that would mean.) She also likes pictures of pretty men and keeps many of them on her computer. (The pictures, not the men.) She would dearly love a cabana boy to mow her lawn and maybe rub her shoulders after a long day of making men fall in love with each other, then cackling evilly and raining frustration and danger on them.

BookBlast, Giveaway: Sexual Frankenstein by TC Blue

sexualfrankenstein1400Author Name: TC Blue

Book Name: Sexual Frankenstein

Release Date: September 2, 2015

Blurb:

Tony & Darian have been friends and playing together in their band, Sexual Frankenstein, for a few years, and while they really are friends, they’ve never crossed that line — no matter how much they may want to — because of their band and friendship, as well as not thinking the other is interested.

The apparent interest in one of them, from their hot and very glam new singer, brings things to a head as long-buried jealousies push to the fore, leading both Tony and Darian to reevaluate what they already have and what they so desperately want.

This story previously appeared in the Po’boys Anthology, published by Torquere Press.

Pages or Words: 13,000 words

Categories: Contemporary, M/M Romance

Excerpt:

Yeah, the voice was bad enough because it was so good, but even worse was the fact that Andy was too fucking good-looking and not at all shy. Andy would never sit around for two years, yearning for someone who had never once seemed to be interested, just because he was too scared to make a move. No, Tony was pretty sure that Andy, with his make-up and highlights, his dramatic wardrobe and even more dramatic nature, would just stroll up to whoever caught his eye and say something to make that person laugh. Something to make their blue eyes shine and crinkle at the corners. Something to have that person’s slightly wavy, collar-length dark-blond hair moving wildly while that same person’s soft-looking, pink-lipped mouth opened in a grin to reveal almost perfect teeth, aside from the one lateral incisor on the left that was crooked and overlapped that left front tooth just enough to be cute and quirky rather than snaggly.

Add in the stage moves that Andy somehow kept managing to pull off without stumbling or tripping over his own feet — or any of the numerous cables covering the stage — and Tony definitely hated the bastard. More than hated him when the jerk took each and every opportunity to maneuver over to Darian’s side and rub up against him, singing into his eyes, looking wicked and delicious. Eight times so far, because Tony was keeping count, and Darian didn’t seem to mind even a little, damn it.

My own fault. Should have manned up and taken my shot before, and now it’s too late. I’m a fucking idiot. And how appropriate was it that the next song on their playlist was the old Cinderella ballad “Don’t Know What You Got”? Not that Tony had ever broken anyone’s heart, but he totally understood the emotion behind the chorus.

Meet TC Blue:

Contrary to popular opinion, TC Blue was not raised by wolves. Nor did she spring, fully formed, from the forehead of a god, instead entering the world in the usual manner.

A true jack-of-all-trades and master of none (otherwise known as flighty and unable to make a decision and stick with it), she currently resides near the east coast where she does her best to avoid politics and religions as a general rule.

TC can usually be found sitting in front of her computer, trying to wrangle rabid and numerous plot bunnies, though her muses insist that she not be too hard on the poor little fluffy things. (Poor little fluffy things with sharp teeth and claws, but whatever. Muses don’t seem to care much about the possible bloodshed if the bunnies think TC’s not writing quickly enough.)

One thing sure to calm the bunnies is hearing from readers, so please feel free to contact TC at tcblue@live.com or stalk her: on Twitter — @tc_blue, on Facebook — T.c. Blue.

Blurb:

Jordan Callahan is disillusioned about dating since he caught yet another boyfriend cheating. He’s tired of giving his heart to men who only want his body. At his five-year high school reunion, he meets up with old flame Rick Ferguson. Tall, dark, and bisexual, Rick has been his dream guy since sophomore year. But Rick is in the closet and has dated a string of women since high school. If he gives in to the temptation of Rick’s kisses, his lost love could be his future—or just another in a string of men to break his heart.

Rick has tried to live up to other people’s expectations. Everyone in his small home town is waiting for the former captain of the football team to settle down with a nice girl. Well, girls aren’t in the cards for him, and he’s done trying. He wants Jordan, his best friend since first grade.

Badge-11

Excerpt:
Jordan’s muscles slackened, and cold anticipation formed a lump in his stomach. Rick isn’t really jealous?

But the feral look in Rick’s eyes said he was.

The hand on his shoulder nudged him toward the ballroom. Did Rick want him? Was that why he’d agreed to come stag?

Rick’s fingers idly tapped the small of Jordan’s back as they walked. The whisper of contact was odd and possessive, and it sent Jordan’s blood surging to all the wrong places. He shouldn’t have had that second scotch. He was relaxed and horny, especially with Rick so close, when he needed to keep his wits about him. Rick would never forgive him if he let something slip about their past together in front of their high school friends.

The tapping continued, revving his nerves into high gear. His fly pressed painfully against his flesh. He turned to Rick. “Will you stop touching me?”

Rick’s easy smile fled. “Why?”

He grabbed the collar of Rick’s shirt and said in his ear, “Because, dumbass, you’re making me hard.”

Rick raised his brows and smirked. They moved forward again. The tapping slowed but didn’t stop.

Book Name: Full Moon Dating: Gage and Hamish

Series: Full Moon Dating

Book: Four

Should be read as a series

 Release Date: July 29 2015

Blurb:
Cat shifter Gage is an impossible bottom. No one has ever been able to tame him, even if he wants them to. He’s willing to keep trying, though, and when he finds out about the paranormal dating site Full Moon Dating, he puts himself in their hands. He longs for someone who will take him in hand and make him like it.

Hamish is a bear shifter who plays too rough for most subs. Gage sounds like just what he needs, so when Full Moon matches them up, he’s happy to see how they get along. Can he convince Gage that he’s the one to make the man toe the line? 

Pages or Words: 11,000

Badge-8

Excerpt:

Gage checked his shirt before he headed into the sushi place. Boulder had the best downtown, charming and upscale, but not formal. Not as hipster as Austin or Portland, not as redneck as Denver or Dallas — it managed to be clever and casual all at once.

He totally approved.

Now if he could only approve this date. A bear? Him?

Gage was as far from low-key twink as they came. He was… challenging. Doms dumped him regularly.

A bear seemed so. Oh, he didn’t know. Sweet. Goofy.

He glanced around, wondering if he was early.

He tended to be early.

He liked being early.

There. Back in the corner where the bar bent around. That has to be his date. A huge man with shaggy, dark brown hair and a sunbaked face with lots of smile lines.

He looked a little like a lumberjack. It was adorable. So not his type, but cute.

The guy stood, smiling, making his oddly light brown eyes light up. “Hey! You must be Gage. I’m Hamish.” He pronounced it “hay-mish”.

“Hamish. Hello.” He found a smile to offer back. How could you not like a guy who grinned like that?

“Hi. I hope you like sushi.” Hamish waved to the seat next to him at the bar.

“Fish, salty peppery yumminess. What’s not to like?”

“Right?” Hamish was a big guy. Not fat at all, but he overflowed his personal space into Gage’s, warm and spicy smelling. At least he didn’t stink. That was always hard to get around. “Anyway, I got a little hungry before you got here, so I got mussels and carpaccio. In case you hate mussels.”

“Mussels are good. Tuna is my favorite. Cliché, but true.”

“They have an amazing hamachi appetizer.” Food was a great social equalizer.

“I’m totally in, man.” He nodded to the waiter, got his attention.

“Excellent. So, what do you do?” Small talk. Again with the cute.

“I’m a software designer. I create weird little things that people don’t know they need. You?”

“I build shit. Right now I’m very into tiny houses. For other people. I need square footage.” He grinned.

“Tiny houses? No shit?” Okay, that was cool. Not sexy, but better than software designer.

“I’ve done some work for local architects, and I love carving on a large scale.” Hamish held up his hands, scarred and callused.

He took one in hand, hoping for a zing, for a flash of lightning, but there wasn’t one. Just a warmth. Sweet. Steady.

He looked at the palm, fingers tracing over the calluses. “I approve.”

“Thanks.” Hamish grinned. “It’s good work.”

“That’s sort of how I feel about mine. It’s computer work, but there’s a lot of design involved in it.”

“Sounds neat. Keeps you from getting bored, right?” Hamish flagged down a waitress to order their hamachi.

“It does.” He ordered a couple of honey wheat beers.

“So…”

They both said it at the same time, then laughed. “You go,” Gage said.

“I was just wondering what made you go to Full Moon.”

“I’ve been searching for something and I’m beginning to think that I’m doomed, that I’m too much to handle.” And now he was sitting with a big teddy bear. “What about you?”

“Oh, you know. Everyone thinks I’m a big marshmallow. No one wants to play rough.” Hamish’s cheeks went pink.

“No one? That totally sucks.” He was touching Hamish’s wrist now.

“I know! I mean, this is a cosmopolitan place, kinda. Boulder, I mean. You’d think I could find someone not afraid to bait the bear.”

Okay. Okay, now there was a hint of promise there. “What are you into?”

“All sorts of things.” Hamish met his gaze, golden eyes alight. “I love bondage. Spanking. Some discipline, though not deep domestic or anything. And I like rough stuff, when someone will fight me, make me work for it.”

Well, now he got it, why they were put together. He was, at best, a pushy little bottom. Still, Hamish seemed so… laid-back. Could there really be an opportunity?

Book Name: Brick by Brick

Release Date: June 29, 2015

Blurb:

They say that time heals all wounds, but losing Parley, his one true love, left Zach with a hole in his heart that no one else can fill. After forty-eight blissful hours alone together as teens in an abandoned house, Parley disappeared. Parley is what he is, and the pray-away-the-gay camp his parents ship him to won’t change that. However, finding the balance between accepting his true nature and not losing his family means tough sacrifices.

Sixteen years later, Zach is thunderstruck when Parley stands on the front doorstep of his house—the house that had been their refuge, which Zach restored. But Parley isn’t alone, and Zach wonders if he’s found Parley only to lose him a second time. If they can overcome the terrors of the past and the situation of the present, maybe they can build a new relationship just as Zach rebuilt the house—brick by brick.

 

Pages or Words: 62,000 words

Categories: Contemporary, Fiction, Gay fiction, M/M Romance

BadgeExcerpt:

ZACH FELT as if he was floating. He’d been planning this escape for weeks, but now that it was actually happening, it didn’t seem real. He chanced a quick look at Parley as they merged onto the highway. What could possibly be better than running away with his best friend?

He’d had his doubts that Parley would actually come with him. After being turned down the first time, Zach had prepared himself for disappointment, but now they were leaving together and Zach couldn’t have been happier.

“Where should we go?” Zach asked. He had some vague ideas in mind, but he wanted his friend’s input more than anything.

“I don’t know. Somewhere we can’t be found?” Zach was right on board with that.

“That’s a good idea. We’ll go for a bit on this highway, then we’ll exit and take some back roads, maybe head toward the interior.”

Parley dropped his head back against the seat. “Perfect.” After a time, he said, “I still can’t believe we’re doing this.”

“I still can’t believe you came with me,” Zach countered.

“I can’t either. I must be insane.”

“Or brilliant. It’s usually a fine line,” Zach teased.

“My parents are going to have an absolute meltdown once they’ve found out what I’ve done. They’re going to be so upset.”

Parley’s voice was quiet, barely above a whisper. Zach had seen him like this once before when he’d thought he’d lost his weird CTR ring with the spinner chain in the band.

“It’ll all be okay.” Zach tried to soothe him, to bring him back to the present, and rested a gentle hand on Parley’s knee. “Everyone flies from the nest sooner or later. We just did it in an unconventional way. I really do think this is what’s best, though, for both of us.”

Zach’s reassurance seemed to work. Parley blinked slowly a few times and then a somewhat disheartened smile crept onto his face. “I know, but my family is just… different.”

About L.J. LaBarthe:

L.J. LaBarthe is a French-Australian woman, who was born during the Witching Hour, just after midnight. From this auspicious beginning, she went on to write a prize-winning short story about Humpty Dumpty wearing an Aussie hat complete with corks dangling from it when she was six years old. From there, she wrote for her high school yearbook, her university newspaper, and, from her early teens to her twenties, produced a fanzine about the local punk rock music scene. She loves music of all kinds and was once a classical pianist; she loves languages and speaks French and English and a teeny-tiny smattering of Mandarin Chinese, which she hopes to relearn properly very soon. She enjoys TV, film, travel, cooking, eating out, abandoned places, urbex, history, and researching.

 

L.J. loves to read complicated plots and hopes to do complex plot lines justice in her own writing. She writes paranormal, historical, urban fantasy, and contemporary Australian stories, usually m/m romance and featuring m/m erotica. She has won a Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention and another award for Best Historical Gay Novel.

L.J. lives in the city of Adelaide, and is owned by her cat.

About Cate Ashwood: 

Cate Ashwood wrote her very first story in a hot-pink binder when she was in the second grade and found her passion for writing. Her first successful foray into romance writing came five years later when she wrote her best friend, who was experiencing a case of unrequited love, her own happily ever after.

Cate’s life has taken a number of different and adventurous roads. She now lives a stone’s throw from the ocean, just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia with her husband, her little boy, and their two cats. Her life is filled with family and friends, travel, and, of course, books.
