About The Druid Next Door


Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can’t even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling?


Former Queen’s Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn’t think his life could get any worse: he’s been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he’s not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he’s going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree hugger is really a druid, he’s certain the gods have it in for him—after all, there’s always a catch with druids. Then he’s magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101.


All right, now things couldn’t possibly get worse.


Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he’s lost—for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce’s life forever.


Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won’t survive the week anyway.

GayRomLit 2017 Blog Tour Welcomes Author Kim Fielding

GayRomLit 2017 Blog Tour Welcomes Author Kim Fielding


Hi! I’m Kim Fielding. As I’m writing this, I’m simultaneously procrastinating one of my least favorite tasks: packing for a trip. I love traveling, but the packing part is always painful for me whether I’m going for a night or five months. I don’t know why. It’s just traumatic.
This particular trip involves me and the husband running away from home. One kid is currently on the East Coast on a school trip, while the other—who graduates high school next month—is eager for the chance to stay home alone. That means we can travel kid-free yet guiltless, which is a rare thing indeed.
We’re going to Vegas. It’s generally not a city I get excited to visit. I don’t enjoy gambling, I don’t drink much, and the tackiness gets to me after a while. Still, if you’re willing to set aside certain expectations and live in an alternate reality for a time, the city can be fun. I think of it as the creation of Walt Disney’s evil twin. And this time I’ve talked my husband into a fancy hotel and two shows, so that’s good.

Virtual Tour: Suspicious Behavior by Cari Z. & L.A. Witt ~ (Guest Post + Giveaway)



About Suspicious Behavior


Detective Darren Corliss is hanging by a thread. In between recovering from a near-fatal wound and returning to work at a hostile precinct, he’s struggling to help care for his ailing brother. His partner and boyfriend, Detective Andreas Ruffner, wants to help, but doesn’t know how. And with his own family crises brewing, Andreas is spread almost as thin as Darren.


For cops, though, life takes a backseat to the job. When a stack of unsolved homicides drops into their laps, Andreas and Darren think they’re unrelated cold cases. But when a connection surfaces, they find themselves on the tail of a prolific serial killer who’s about to strike again.


Except they’ve got nothing. No leads. No suspects. Just a pile of circumstantial evidence and a whole lot of hunches. Time is running out to stop the next murder—and to pull themselves back from their breaking points.

Where I was his weakness, he became my strength.
Two Bit:
I've never been one to hold back. I’ve always said what was on my mind – right or wrong – and earned my name because of it. Giving my two cents hasn’t always been a good thing, but on one fateful night, it led me to her. She was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of girl. Undeniably beautiful. Fearless. Unforgettable.
I wanted her, but getting mixed up with her nearly cost me my life.
I tried to fight it. I tried to save myself from the flame... but after one touch, I knew there was no turning back.
Zoe would be mine.
Zoe:
Sometimes, you’ve got to hit rock bottom before you can find a way to move forward. Well, it’s time for me to find a way to move forward, because I’ve sure as hell hit rock bottom.
My father, the president of the Chosen Knights, died and left me a legacy I didn't want. The club was supposed to be my family, but with my father gone, they’d gotten tangled up in things I wanted no part of. I wanted out, free from the torment, but I was stuck with no money and no place to go. I’d thought all hope was gone.
Until he walked into the bar.
As if he’d stepped out of my dreams, he was everything I’d ever wanted. Handsome. Courageous. Passionate.
Being with him came at a price – a price I wasn’t sure either of us could pay.
When sparks fly and ignite a war, who will be left standing in the ashes?

Release Blitz ~ Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward

 

BUY NOW

Amazon | Audio | iBooks | Nook | Kobo | Amazon Paperback

                                                             


Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

“Great story and I am very pleased I offered to read and review it based on how much I had enjoyed all the others, very worth reading.” - Review from Wendy Hodges

“Havoc was a good book, packed full of drama and action.” - Cat’s Guilty Pleasures

“I loved how this story unfolded and developed, the relationship between Rock and Chrissy was fun and the dramatic ending was an "edge of your seat" read.” - Readers World Book Haven

CHRISSY
As a social worker, I've seen my fair share of broken families, bad relationships, and worlds of regret.
Because of that the last thing, I'll ever do is let down my guard, or open up my heart.
As for men, bring 'em on.
I love a good man in my bed, but I’m not looking for forever or happily ever after. 
That's not my style.
Please me, and leave. 
These are my rules. 
There’s no bending or breaking them. 
Even when he pulls out all the stops,
I'm not budging.
They’re set in stone.
Or should I say, “Rock?”
ROCK
I'm chiseling away at that hard exterior, one pebble at a time.
I don’t negotiate, I don't share, and 
I sure as hell don’t wait my turn.
Despite her smart mouth and fiery ways,
I still want her. 
But this "friends with benefits" deal of hers is bullshit.
I don't play that way.
At least, I don't plan to anymore.
I will own every ounce of her.
That body.
That mind.
That heart.
It will all be mine.
