Welcome Jennifer Loring author of No One on Earth, a new m/m
sci-fi romance.
Why did you write
this book?
After Glows Publishing had put out a call for m/m sci-fi
romance novellas to be collected into a holiday-themed anthology. The concept
interested me, so I experimented with a couple of different story ideas, all
involving Native American folklore, before settling on the legend of the
Handsome Fellow. I grew up on a reservation, but this was my first time writing
an indigenous character. I don’t think it will be my last. J Anyway,
the novella first appeared in Starstruck Holidays this past Christmas and is
now releasing on its own.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
It will probably always be horror. I also love non-fiction.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Two are characters I’ve loved since I was a
teenager—Irrylath from The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce and Zach
from Poppy Z. Brite’s Drawing Blood. I also adore Constantine from Robin
McKinley’s Sunshine.
What are you working
on at the moment?
A Gothic/paranormal romance novella for After Glows,
concepts for a narrative game, and a lot of short fiction.
What books will we see
from you in coming months?
March will bring my novella Prison Made of Mirrors, a
retelling of Snow White, from Strange Fictions Press. The final book of The
Firebird Trilogy (The Pieces of Us) releases from Limitless Publishing in April,
and the first Erotikós anthology—containing two of my erotic horror short
stories—from DarkFuse. In May, I’ll be in a contemporary romance anthology that
I can’t talk about yet.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Genre: m/m sci-fi romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Jon, a psychic since childhood, has never felt at home in
the world, even less so after his lover died on Winter Solstice a year ago.
Since his abilities failed him when he needed them most, he turns to alcohol
and rejects his family’s assertion that he is a Star Child—an alien/human
hybrid. When Jon’s sister suggests he should look into the legend of Handsome
Fellow, Jon decides that if he cannot find happiness himself, he will bring it
to others.
Erukkass’ people, a species of interdimensional aliens, have
been observing Earth and interacting with humans for so many centuries that
some Native American tribes believe their ancestors originated from the stars.
After his lover passed away in what appears to be a medical accident, he
accepts a scientific mission… but not for the reasons his government expects. He
has located his beloved on another timeline, in another universe—ours—and he
will not leave without him.
Jon returns home from work one evening to find a gift of his
own—a strange young man waiting for him. Erukkass unveils one stunning
revelation after another, including the truth behind his lover’s death and the
nature of time itself. Can he and Jon forge a future together, or will two
timelines that have always intersected, no matter when or where, finally be
forced to diverge?

Every submissive craves Master Adrian Cayne’s commands and
relentless determination to bring them to the point of exquisite pain and
pleasure. Because of the intensity of his sessions, he’ll only take experienced
submissives until Emma arrives at Dark Odyssey. He’s impressed and attracted to
her beauty and enthusiasm. But before he’ll take her on, she must pass a series
of seductive tests of increasing intensity to see if she’s receptive to his
unique and dark skills.
Emma Fallon is known to thoroughly research her articles for
the tabloid magazine Scandal. With her job and career on the line, she must go
undercover to write a lurid and gossipy story about Dark Odyssey, a hedonistic
club. While the assignment is her chance to indulge in her taboo desires for the
sex she craves as a submissive, her heart isn’t in it because she’s falling for
Adrian.
Raw, hot passion draws them past guarded limits, but when
secrets are revealed and trust is broken, can true love save their torn hearts?

About Secret Sins

Genre Erotic contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Secrets…Don’t you just love a good juicy secret? If you
check out prime time TV, several shows revolve around a theme of secrets, lies
and gossip. Look at all the reality shows: The Real Housewives, The Bachelor,
The Bachelorette, Survivor, Top Chef, Celebrity Apprentice, etc. If you’re not
a fan of those, then you may have flipped through pages of People magazine or
some other Hollywood tabloid.
Have you ever shared a secret with someone and perhaps later
regretted it when that secret was revealed either on purpose or by accident? The
results may have been costly in a relationship, a friendship, a job?
Well, secrets of the naughtiest kind is the theme for the
Sins of Odyssey series. In each standalone story there is a couple faced with
secrets and lies that turn the characters’ lives upside down. The stories take
place in and around a premier BDSM and sex club Dark Odyssey where the
ultra-wealthy and high profile guests prefer to keep their proclivities a
secret. When love, passion and kinky desires get thrown in and secrets are
revealed, life as they know it is never the same. Crisis brings out the best
and the worse in people. The question is will career, lifestyle and love
survive when the dust settles?

Welcome Mandy Devlin from Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor, a
new contemporary romance by Kryssie Fortune.

About Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor

Genre Contemporary Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): UK 18
Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends
and family–under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone
who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family.
She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s
finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see
is Adam–the man she loved and lost so long ago.
Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his
great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery
Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on
his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No
way would he marry a woman like her.
As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is
Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?

Introducing Mandy Devlin

Age: 30
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Westhorpe Ridge, North Carolina
Profession: Teacher turned Hotelier.
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
I’m a redhead, with a redhead’s temper. Not that I ever stay
angry long. I used to wear my hair long, but as a single mom, it’s easier to
wear it shorter. It still flies about in spiral curls. Other than that, I’m
sort of average—Average weight, Average build, but I have a redhead’s pale
skin.
Please tell us a
little about yourself.
This one is hard. I was the idiot cheerleader who ended up
pregnant with the captain of the football team’s baby. Circumstances, or more
truthfully, Adam’s wicked Great Aunt Edith—forced me to move away from my home
and my family. The last eleven years haven’t been easy, but I have a wonderful
son. I wouldn’t be without Ben now. I trained as a teacher, and even scraped
together enough cash to buy my grandmother’s hotel when she wanted to retire.
Owning Devlin’s hotel was a childhood dream, but I’m a bit fazed by how much
she’s let it go.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
Yeah right. As if I have time for romance. Once, I dreamed
of forever with Adam Devlin. We’d been dating for four years, then he dumped me
right in the middle of dance floor at our senior prom. At least I know he’s
moved on from Westhorpe Ridge now. According to his sister, he’s an army doctor
serving in the Middle East. Not that I’m keeping track or anything.
Are you book-smart, self-taught,
widely-experienced?
Book smart, I guess. I have a Math degree with a minor in
Business Studies. I’ve tried to wise up and be people smart too. I’ve been down
on my luck myself, so I help out wherever I can, but most of my life’s devoted
to raising Ben.
Do you get by, live comfortably,
live extravagantly?
Comfortably? I wish. I had a nest egg, a payoff from Adam’s
great aunt really, but I used it to get through school and put down the deposit
on Devlin’s Hotel. Things are pretty tight, but they’ll get better when I’ve
updated the hotel. The lunchroom’s keeping us afloat at the moment, and I’ve
got a small emergency fund. I really need to be making a profit by summer
though.
What is your viewpoint
on wealth?
It depends what you do with it. Two of my friends, Jazz
Stewart and Abigail Montgomery have just inherited a small fortune each. I know
they’ll use it to do good things. Edith Montgomery, though—that’s Adam’s old
bat of an aunt—used her millions to manipulate people. You wouldn’t believe the
things she threatened to do to my family when I refused to abort my baby. The
compromise was she paid me off and I left town after I signed a contract that
said I couldn’t tell anyone who my baby’s father is. Not even Adam.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. I guess part of my heart still belongs to
him, but you hit the nail on the head when you called him my past.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. It would kill me to see him with someone
else. Now his great aunt’s dead though, I need to tell him about Ben. I’m not
sure where I start with that, but he’s going to freak out when he discovers he
has a ten-year-old son he’s never met.
What is your breaking
point?
This damned hotel. I’m pretty close to throwing in the towel
and going back to teaching. Every room needs a facelift, and I can’t afford to
get people in to do it. I mean, I love the place, and Ben’s settled in Westhorpe
Ridge now. The upside is I get more time with my son, but then I’m up at dawn
and working until midnight.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune
writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon
into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular
werewolves, arrogant Fae or BDSM loving dragons.
Kryssie likes her
contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females
who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.
Kryssie’s pet hates
are unhappy endings, and a series that ends on a cliff hanger.
Her books are all
stand alone, even when they’re part of a series. Plot always comes before sex,
but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and
explicit.

Today’s featured book is Midnight Delight by Cadence Denton.
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Cozy Mystery
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Call me Contessa. Forget my name, you couldn’t pronounce it.
I’m a professional chef—actually, I’m the LeBron James of chefs. Bobby Flay, Gordon
Ramsay even Julia Childs have all been my students, and that’s just a few. I’ve
probably forgotten more about the culinary arts than any chef alive has
learned. I was in the thick of things when today’s conventional culinary
techniques were first being developed. You ever used the three basic steps in
dicing an onion? Prego. That was me. Ever heard of clarified butter? Bingo. Me
again.
How can that be? I was born in Genoa, Italy in the year of our Lord 1642. That’s
right. I’m an Eternal, a creature of darkness, a vampire…and I’m obsessed by
what I cannot eat. Food.
Ironically, I’m the star of my very own cooking show on the Foodie Culinary
Channel. My dream job! Where I get to create the recipes I adore and share them
with my audience and one lucky dinner guest. Which is where my troubles began.
And will end.
I was caught partaking the red jungle juice from the neck of my dinner date. I
was threatened, attacked with Holy water, and finally blackmailed by my
mild-mannered joke of an Associate Producer. As it turns out, she isn’t so
mild-mannered.
Now I have two choices: turn her into a child of darkness or risk exposure to
the human world.
I’m thinking there’s a third choice. His name is Rocco Guadagnino
[Review — I adored this book! It’s a quick read and more addictive than my
husband’s four-meat marinara. Fast-paced, quirky dialogue and a sweet
paranormal romance, Midnight Delight will delight your reading taste buds. I can’t
wait to read the next installment in the series!]

A Grammy nomination drags the searing spotlight of fame
uncomfortably close, setting Blue’s almost orderly life on fire. Scorched by
betrayal and doubt, fame isn’t what Blue imagined.
Unintimidated by the fire, his boyfriend, Brady puts his
career aside to shield Blue. Fame can warm you one minute and burn you to ash
the next, but Brady won’t let anything–or anyone–burn Blue again.
