New Release: Broken Bones

 

Happy Release Day to Deja Black! Her newest novel, Broken Bones, introduces readers  to a type of paranormal they don’t often see — Sandmen!

BrokenBonesFSBlurb:
Dan Tolliver, the adopted son of alpha pack leader Jeremiah Tolliver, has suffered his last moment of abuse by his lover Keith Mulligan and finds himself in the hospital. There he meets dark and sharp-tongued Dr. Aiden Kavanaugh, who believes Dan needs some of his straightforward kind of medicine. Still, there is something different about the doctor.

Aiden is a sandman, a weaver of dreams, and has been on earth far longer than even he knows. He’s at the end of his time, ready to transition, and needs a human mate to keep him connected to the world he’s grown to love. Only he hasn’t found a special person who makes him want to stay. He doesn’t despair, because not every sandman has the chance to choose, but he knows if he doesn’t find a partner, he will soon lose his physical form and exist only in dreams.

When Aiden realizes Keith is a far greater monster than Dan has any idea, they grow and work together using the support of the pack—and Dan’s inner strength—to overcome impossible odds.

Bio:

Deja has always had fantasies of men loving men, men who felt strongly, loved hard, and needed a hero. Then, one great day she came across a book, and she discovered the world of m/m writing, happened upon others who shared her obsession as much as she did and found her world where she could be not only be accepted for the lives and loves she envisioned, but she could create them, too. So, why not? 
Why not take the stories that she would write and throw away as a teenager, grow them, dream them and make them a reality where she could know her own characters, live their story and make them real for someone else?

And, she did. Now, with the support of her hubby and some intense time management she is learning to balance her family of two children at home and the many others she teaches each and every day with her passion, writing what she loves to read.

New Release: A Time for Everything

ATimeForEverything 500x750 The war might be over, but their battle has just begun…

Hiya!! I’d like to show you a bit about my new release, A Time for Everything. It’s a Civil War/Restoration era novel about a Confederate widow and a Union veteran who find love while trying to survive in a country that’s still reeling from the aftermath of war.

Check it out:

After losing her husband and only child to the ravages of the Civil War, twenty-five-year-old Portia McAllister is drowning in grief. When she sees an ad for a live-in tutor in another town, she leaves everything behind in hopes of making a fresh start. But as a Confederate widow in a Union household, she is met with resentment from her new charge and her employer, war veteran Beau Stanford.

Despite their differences, she and Beau find common ground and the stirrings of a second chance at love—until his late wife’s cousin, Lydia, arrives with her sights set on him. Burdened with a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, Beau is tempted by Lydia’s hefty dowry, though Portia has captured his heart.

In another time and another place, his choice would be easy. But love seems impossible amid the simmering chaos of Reconstruction that could boil over at any moment into an all-out battle for survival. Will Beau and Portia find their way into each other’s arms, or will they be swept away by raging forces beyond their control?

New Release: The Geek and His Artist

Today I’d like to welcome Hope Ryan, author of The Geek and His Artist! I have a great interview with Hope below, plus a giveaway. I hope you enjoy Hope! 🙂

Blurb:

GeekandHisArtist[The]FSSimon Williams spends his lunch periods drawing his geek and trying not to think about the terrors waiting for him at home. He needs to get away from his abusive father before he suffers the same grisly fate as his mother. Because he’s learned the hard way running away doesn’t work, he’s counting the days until his eighteenth birthday.

Jimmy Bennet should be spending his lunch studying so his senior GPA is good enough to get him into college, but he can’t seem to focus thanks to his distracting artist. When he’s given the opportunity to tutor Simon in Trig and discovers Simon’s home-life nightmare, he wants nothing more than to get Simon out of danger. This need becomes more urgent when Simon comes to school the Monday after their first date with bruises, but it takes a broken leg before Jimmy can convince his boyfriend the Bennets really want him.

But the danger Simon thought was past shows up at the most unexpected time, and he must stand up to the fears he’s held so long to protect not only himself, but the man he wants to spend his life with. Continue reading New Release: The Geek and His Artist

New Release: Threefold Love

Untitled-1

 

Hello! I’m Ki Brightly. It’s absolutely lovely of Tricia to have my book on her blog. (Thank you!) Threefold Love was a fun book to write. I fell in love with the characters, and as accomplished as I felt when I finally typed the last word, I was kind of sad to be done with the book. Xavier was fun to write because it hurt, in a good way, to watch him opening up to Andrew, and then Duncan. Andrew was a mess when he realized he wanted Xavier, and then again when he realized he wanted the man in his life for keeps, not just because he was sexy. Andrew was fun to write because he’s smart and kind of geeky, but in a cute way. I liked Duncan because if he hadn’t been the man he was, this entire book could have turned into a red, hot angsty mess that no one could have scraped off the floor, not even with a squeegee and a bucket and ten gallons of Mr. Clean. Plus, he has an enduring love with an evil cat.

I think, all said and done, one of my favorite characters from this book is someone not mentioned on the back cover-Curtis. He’s Andrew’s little brother and he’s a ball of miserable anger. Really, he’s not happy until he’s upsetting someone else, which doesn’t sound very endearing, but there’s obviously something going on beneath the surface there. Since I couldn’t stop thinking and dreaming about these characters he’s going to be front and center for the next book, but before I get there with him, I hope you enjoy Threefold Love. Happy reading!
