Julie is an awesome friend and fabulous writer. I wanted to showcase her current story so please enjoy (although it is NSFW – you’ve been warned!). She also has several books and stories published. I encourage you to check them out and visit all the Wednesday Briefers.

CONTENT WARNING: The below story contains adult themes and is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Blurb:

Marshall and Lee’s relationship is far from traditional, and one considered taboo by many. Despite that, their love for one another is strong and fierce. Circumstances forced them apart for five long years, and they’re determined that now they’ve been reunited, nothing will ever separate them again. They live a quiet life in a small town in Texas, and only one person there knows their secret, and doesn’t judge them.

Marshall and Lee have a love most extraordinary… Continue reading “Sexy Sample Sunday”

Nice Guys Series

I just finished reading two hard-to-put-down m-m romance novels on my Kindle. The first was Double Full (Nice Guys #1) by Kindle Alexander.

This is the story of football star, Colton Michaels, and cheerleading standout Jace Montgomery. We first meet the guys in college and then the story jumps a couple of years until Colt is an NFL star (lots of angst and drama in the meantime!). At the risk of spoiling the stories, the guys reconnect in Hawaii at a home that has special meaning for them. Don’t assume the HEA is right around the corner. They have a lot to get through after something horrible and significant happens (you’ll have to read for more info on that one!).

One of the characters who was steadfast and very supportive of Colt was Dr. Knox, the team’s doctor. Good for us that Dr. Knox has a gay son, Mitch, who happens to be a US Marshal. Can you see where I’m going with this one…Double_Full

Blurb:

Up and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.

Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?

I definitely enjoyed the read and had to start the second book right away. There were a couple of small issues (more nit-picky than anything) that I had, but nothing that made me want to put the book down. I give Double Full 4 out of 5 stars! Continue reading “Nice Guys Series”

Thoughts: Burn for Me

I finally finished Burn for Me this morning. The past couple of nights, I’ve been trying to stay awake and knock out the remainingBurn_For_Me pages, but I just couldn’t do it–not for any issues with the book, I was just physically too tired.

Thanks to Sharron for recommending it! I didn’t even realize the husband and wife writing team of Ilona Andrews had a new book out. Shame on me! LOL I am huge Kate Daniels fan so once Sharron started giving me background on this book, I knew I had to read it.

After picking up the book, I wondered if it was more PNR than Urban Fantasy. I’m not going to discuss the particulars of each genre, but I found a nice combination in the story–urban fantasy, romance (more like sexual tension), and even a bit of mystery. Oh, and just my two cents: The models on the cover aren’t how I pictured the characters. Mad Rogan is much hotter! Continue reading “Thoughts: Burn for Me”

With a masked abductor repeatedly injecting her arm with an unknown substance while holding her captive, Samantha tries in vain to find out what he wants, but he refuses to speak. Until the day he breaks his silence and his twisted words are worse than what she’d imagined.

Unfortunately, walling up her heart proves difficult when eighteen-year-old Blake Knightley moves in next door. When Samantha starts experiencing strange changes within her, she realizes her captor may have left her more damaged than she originally thought. Now she must turn to Blake for help in order to unearth the truth behind the monster who started this all… or risk experiencing worse things than just falling in love.

Hey everyone! I’ve very pleased to announce Dreamspinner has translated Priceless into German. The release date is November 25thPriceless is a romance in which mortals, immortals, and the Greco-Roman god, Cupid himself, find hot sex, overwhelming passion, and, of course, love.

Blurb:

Funken sprühen, als Amor seinen Pfeil auf zwei Sterbliche in Las Vegas richtet: Randy Jones, ein ganz normaler junger Mann im Wochenendurlaub, schaut am Würfeltisch in Garretts Augen und es ist um ihn geschehen. All seinen Prinzipien zum Trotz lässt er sich auf ein leidenschaftliches, zweitägiges Abenteuer mit Garrett ein – und stellt erschüttert fest, dass er sich verliebt hat.

Der zynische Milliardär Garrett Shiffler hat alles, was man sich mit Geld kaufen kann. Da ihn andere Menschen vor allem als Geldquelle betrachten, hat er den Glauben an Unschuld und Liebe schon vor langer Zeit verloren. Doch als Randy verschwindet und ihn mit unerwarteten Gefühlen zurücklässt, nimmt er sich vor, Randy für sich zu gewinnen – und diesmal muss er mit seinem Herzen anstatt seinem Bankkonto kämpfen.

Währenddessen fragt sich Amor, was geschehen ist. Seine Pfeile verfehlen niemals ihr Ziel, es sei denn, das Schicksal selbst greift ein. Wenn Garrett Randy zurückgewinnen möchte, ist er auf sich allein gestellt, denn jetzt kann ihm selbst Amor nicht mehr helfen.

Blurb (in Enlish, lol):

Sparks ignite when Cupid takes aim at two mortals in Las Vegas: Randy Jones, an average guy on a company vacation, looks into Garrett’s eyes at a craps table and time stands still. Throwing aside everything he believes, Randy engages in a torrid two-night affair with Garrett—only to panic when he realizes he’s fallen in love.

Cynical billionaire Garrett Shiffler has everything money can buy, and most of his dates can’t see past the dollar signs. Life has taught him that innocence and love are figments of the imagination. But when Randy disappears, taking with him feelings Garrett thought he’d never know, Garrett wages the most important battle of his life to win Randy’s love—but this time he fights with his heart, not his bank account.

Meanwhile, Cupid wonders what happened. His golden arrows never fail unless the Fates interfere. If Garrett wants to win Randy back, he’s going to have to do it on his own, because the Fates have other plans for Cupid. Continue reading “Priceless – German Translation”
