Born in a small town in upstate New York, Brita Addams has made
her home in the sultry south for many years. In the Frog Capital of the World, Brita
shares her home with her real-life hero–her husband, and a fat cat named Stormee.
All their children are grown.
Given her love of history, Brita writes both het and gay historical
romance. Many of her historicals have appeared on category bestseller lists at various
online retailers.
Tarnished Gold, the first in her gay romance Tarnished series
for Dreamspinner Press, was a winner in the 2013 Rainbow Awards, Historical Romance
category. The book also received nominations for Best Historical and Best Book of
2013 from the readers of the Goodreads M/M Romance Group.
A bit of trivia–Brita pronounces her name, Bree-ta, and not Brit-a,
like the famous water filter. Brita Addams is a mash-up of her real middle name
and her husband’s middle name, with an additional d and s.

Genre Historical gay romance
Author Brita Addams
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
In 1915, starstruck Jack Abadie strikes out for the gilded streets
of the most sinful town in the country—Hollywood. With him, he takes a secret that
his country hometown would never understand.
After years of hard work and a chance invitation to a gay gentlemen’s
club, Jack is discovered. Soon, his talent, matinee idol good looks, and affable
personality propel him to the height of stardom. But fame breeds distrust.
Meeting Wyatt Maitland turns Jack’s life upside down. He wants
to be worthy of his good fortune, but old demons haunt him. Only through Wyatt’s
strength can Jack face that which keeps him from being the man he wants to be. Love
without trust is empty.
As the 1920s roar, scandals rock the movie industry. Public tolerance
of Hollywood’s decadence has reached its limit. Under pressure to clean up its act,
Jack’s studio issues an ultimatum. Either forsake the man he loves and remain a
box office darling, or follow his heart and let his shining star fade to tarnished
gold.

About the Book

Title Gilding Lillian
Genre Contemporary Romance
Author  DawnMarie
Richards
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Griffin Bennett returns to his childhood home unprepared. Despite his long absence, he learns he has been named the sole heir to the fortunes of two venerated Bostonian families. Possibly even more disturbing is his reaction to his father’s widow, a stunning woman whose mere presence provokes vivid images of sex in wildflower meadows.
Lillian Gustave Milton Bennett has always enjoyed men, even marrying a select few. But when circumstances conspire to keep her in the family home with her deceased husband’s estranged son, a mutual sexual attraction becomes an unwelcome complication. She resists, but it becomes clear the most efficient way to exorcise the man, and his odd effect, from her psyche is to sleep with him.
Griffin is well aware Lillian wants nothing more than to work him out of her system, but in a few short weeks his feelings for her have grown from the primitive to the sublime. Realizing her next husband awaits, Griffin struggles to make her understand. But for Lillian, love is an excess, an unnecessary construct, and Griffin’s heartfelt declarations are not enough to make her stay.
Content Notes: Spicy, Contemporary, Spanking

that our travels take us to, that are available. We then modify it to fit our peculiar
steampunk technology. We enjoy spreading happiness one gun at a time. To this date
we have never duplicated an item, making each one a individual work of art. Hence
our motto, “Distinctive Weaponry for the Discriminating Buyer.”

designer. I am one of many and am looking to entertain with light shock and crazy
thoughts.

Seafaring Steampunk

A lot of my pieces are simply just found items that I’ve put
to a better use – steampunkery! I dismantle clocks and watches, and buy other parts
from flea markets and thrift stores and the like. Because of this, very few of my
pieces can be reproduced. So hurry up and get your one-of-a-kind stuff!

Empire Valley Series

A book series by author Ellie Collins.
After the government is forced to accept the existence of supernatural
creatures, they are rounded up, imprisoned and shipped off to an island to live
out the rest of their days, forbidden to leave or to ever have contact with humanity
again. As seemingly random acts of violence break out across the island, the seeds
of rebellion begin to take root.
Sophia Desai, a Shapeshifter, is an officer on the island, processing
new arrivals and pushing papers. When she begins the investigation of a strange
murder, she begins to see the true dark side of their home, and of the people who
put them there.

Designs of the fantastical and spiritual.
The artist known as HuntressLight is also called “Kemi”
on forum sites. She makes her living as an Administrative Professional, but art
and tinkering are in her DNA. She keeps her soul fulfilled with crafting costume
props and creating digital artwork. She’s also a writer but that’s a whole ‘nother
story. Prosthetic Horns, original jewelry, belts and bracers, collars and cuffs,
puches and purses, plus much more.
