Blurb for Love Comes in Many Shapes

Bryony, a shifter mermaid, has run away with sexy witch Maia, and now they’re living the dream in Las Vegas. But Maia is hiding a secret. When her ex, a super-hot warlock, turns up, Bryony can’t fight her attraction to him. Will she choose him? Or Maia? Or both?

Know Bryony, the Heroine from Love Comes in Many Shapes in Rainbow Desire

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Go for a swim in the pool. She spends as much time as she can in water.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Like all shifter merfolk, she loves seafood. She likes the fried squid and shrimps from her local Chinese restaurant.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

As little as possible! Clothes are a hindrance when shifting. Fortunately the climate in Las Vegas enables her to waft around in a bikini and shorts most of the time.

Does she know how to fix things?

Yes, she grew up the only girl in a household of mermen, and learned to fix broken things – boats, kettles, pipes…

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

When Maia, a witch, came to the Morvann islands, Bryony fell in love with her. She tried to tell her family and Clan about their relationship, but they freaked out and ordered her to break up with Maia. Mermen are a conservative lot, and she was the first openly gay mermaid on the islands. As a result she ran off to the US with Maia.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She loves children and is very natural with them. In her job as an entertainer for a hotel in Las Vegas, she often interacts with children and loves it.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Bright and perky, ready to seize the day. Maia on the other hand is a night owl and doesn’t start smiling until about 10 am.

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

She acts as natural as possible. Officially only Maia knows that she is a shifter mermaid, though her manager and some of her colleagues at the hotel suspect something. She changes into her mermaid shape as part of the show, and though she pretends it’s a costume, some who see her up close can guess that it’s not. But hey, it’s Vegas, anything goes.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

She will do it herself if she can. She likes fixing things, and also she is prudent with money.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. Mermaids usually avoid piercings and jewelry as it causes issues when shifting from human to aquatic form.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Neither. Unlike Maia she doesn’t drive. She take taxis a lot, or Maia drives her.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Merfolk respect the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Fall for You by Valerie Ullmer

Fall for You from All You Need is Love (Boxed Set) by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #NewRelease #MMGenre New Adult M/M Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Ethan Sutton had come to the stunning revelation that he’d fallen in love with his best friend, Sebastian Young. Although friends since childhood, Ethan vowed to keep his feelings for Sebastian under wraps and live the rest of his life with this one secret between them rather than risk a lifelong connection and never see him again. But when they move into their own apartment at the start of their third year of college, can Ethan keep his feelings from showing when they live so close together?
Sebastian Young had an epiphany about Ethan at the end of last year and arranged for the shared apartment he’d found over the summer to be closer to Ethan and see if a relationship could develop between them. But as they settle into their lives in a new place with such close quarters, ex-girlfriends, nosy downstairs neighbors, and Sebastian’s own doubts, their relationship could be in jeopardy before it even begins.
Can two best friends admit their feelings and fall in love?
Ethan realized falling in love with his best friend had been easy. Keeping his feelings a secret from Sebastian as they move into a one-bedroom loft and deal with decisions from their past might prove a bit more difficult.
Why did you write this book?
I loved the idea of two close friends who develop feelings for one another, but they are afraid of ruining their friendship, so they keep their feelings to themselves.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance in general, Gay Romance in particular.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I don’t really have one. I could say Elizabeth Bennet, but every time I read a book, they become my favorite character for a while.
What are you working on at the moment?
Another book in my Dark Assassins series. Jade.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I am working on my second full-length M/M novel, Unintended, in the Unexpected Series. I am also working on the start of another New Adult M/M series.

Bella and the Beast by Izzy Szyn @izzySzyn #RLFblog #fantasyToday’s featured book is Bella and the Beast, a Fantasy Fairytale by Izzy Szyn.

You only thought you knew the story of Beauty and the Beast.

When Bella’s father runs into the woman known as the Beast, she agrees to take his place as a prisoner for the next six months. Plenty of time to get out of her pending marriage to the son of the village’s wealthiest family.

When Bella is sent a list of demands and rules, one rule stood out: Don’t fall in love.

That seemed simple enough, for who could fall in love with a Beast?
