Boy Toys: Hot Off the Ice at Christmas

Amy Wasp-Wimberger

10 siblings, 7 fish courses, 6 h

ockey players, 5 cousins, 4 calling birds, 3 spouses, 2 houses and 1 night that changes everything.

Betrayed by first his body and then his girlfriend, Liam O’Reilly, assistant coach of the Seattle Thunder, is not having a very merry Christmas. So when a smoking hot hockey player in a Santa suit offers himself up like a present begging to be opened? Well, it’s a freaking Christmas miracle.

If only the man in question wasn’t hockey’s own bad boy, Joey ‘the Looch’ Luciano, his best friend’s little brother and the same kid who used to trail behind Liam like a loud, mouthy shadow.

When the last present is opened and the Christmas lights go dark, will Joey and Liam’s night together be just another Christmas memory or can the holiday magic they made survive the pressures of the real world?

Boy Toys is a heart-warming Christmas story featuring the inappropriate use of a Santa suit, sibling bribery, and ninety separate instances of the F-word.

Joey and Liam’s story continues in Boy Next Door: Hot Off the Ice #4, releasing March 2018!

Once Shawn recognizes the sweet, shy girl from his sophomore year Chemistry class, he realizes she’s all grown up…but the chemistry between them is still hotter than ever.

Genetic Snare

Laura Baumbach

A Christmas story set in the far future. Betrayal, passion, adventure, primal sex, and a fight to the death. Mating a 26th century Oracan Bounty Hunter with an 18th century Earth pirate has its little glitches.

Bounty hunter Talos bows to pressure to bring his life mate home for the completion of his strict warrior culture’s bonding ritual. Aidan, displaced 18th century Earth pirate — light- fingered, sly, charming, and understandably naive about the new world he’s been thrust into — can’t wait. Even if it turns out someone wants him dead. The 26th century looks different, but it turns out to be a lot like his old life!

Gray Christmas

Lisabet Sarai

You’re never too old for some holiday naughtiness

Widowed author Emma Granger has reconciled herself to spending Christmas Eve in snowy Boston, with a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio and her cat Vronsky. Her daughters have their own lives on the West Coast. Emma knows she can’t expect them to visit every holiday.

A loud crash from the apartment above her overturns her plans for a quiet evening at home. When she investigates, she meets Nick North, an energetic iconoclast with a gray ponytail, a silver earring and bright blue eyes that kindle feelings she’d thought were gone forever. Nick is her own age, maybe older, but his lean body and impish grin affect her as if she were a horny teenager.

Although Emma makes her living writing spicy romance, sex with a stranger seems ludicrous when you’re an arthritic grandmother in your sixties. Still, the attraction she feels for her charismatic upstairs neighbor appears to be reciprocated. A Christmas fling might be just what Emma needs to brighten her holiday.

Holiday On Ice

Jody Wallace

Travel Queen Survival Tip #23: If you get stuck in an ice storm, find a hot guy to melt it!

Travel agent Darcy Burkell has a secret. Because she’s claustrophobic, she doesn’t precisely jet around the world despite what’s implied in her popular newsletter about vacation destinations. When she hires photographer James Jones, who grew up in the same town she did, to illustrate her stories, they become cyber-friends.

James decides Darcy might be the one woman to help him settle down–or at least someone who’ll travel with him instead of expect him to stay home all the time. Right before Christmas, he shows up unannounced and suggests they take a holiday trip together.

Darcy’s too embarrassed to admit her phobia and turns him down flat. She knows what kind of woman he wants, and she’s not it. Her resolve is tested when she and James become gridlocked near the same bridge by an ice storm. Impassable roads force them to spend hours together in his vehicle…shivering. And cuddling. It’s freezing outside, but inside it gets hot enough to melt all the ice in Alaska. The question is, can their affection remain toasty after Darcy confesses her secret?

Santa Baby, Several Stars Away

Savanna Kougar

A Short Shapeshifter Erotic Romance

Kaily has been consumed by curiosity ever since Dylan suddenly appeared in her small town. Surreptitiously, she watches the mystery man restore a rundown Victorian mansion, all while his charm and sincerity gain him the good will of most everyone. This is especially true when he volunteers to become the annual Santa Claus for children at the town’s park.

The problem for Kaily: No one really knows anything about Dylan’s past or where he came from. With her attraction to him growing day by day, she becomes a driven woman. On a desperate whim, she gives herself to him as a Christmas present. Will Dylan be able to resist her waiting naked, but gift-wrapped beneath his tree?

The Santa Bargain

Robin Michaela

Santa’s gifts can be both nice…and naughty.

Coffeehouse entrepreneur, Maria Thompson, has sworn off men ever since her young son’s father walked out of their lives. But, when she literally runs into sexy carpenter, Joe Sinclair, she wonders if it’s time to rethink her plan.

Joe Sinclair doesn’t need or want romance or a family. He was raised in the foster care system and learned long ago not to get attached to anyone. Now, if he could just remember that, he could put the sensual owner of Copper River, Colorado’s new coffee shop out of his mind.

After Maria and Joe volunteer to work together on the town’s first Christmas festival, their attraction lights up brighter than a new a string of holiday lights. When Santa comes to town, will they finally find everything they’ve ever wished for under the tree?

Play Is It True with today’s guest Valerie Ullmer, author of You for Christmas, an M/M Erotic Contemporary Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Hiding his feelings for his best friend has become second nature to Parker Hunt. Throughout his years of friendship with Jonah Lee, he’d hoped for more, but he’d never been able to tell Jonah how he felt or what he wanted. When Jonah’s plans fall through for holiday break, Parker is determined to spend their last Christmas together and this time, be brave enough to tell Jonah exactly how he feels.

Jonah Lee has always been in awe of his friend, Parker. His energy, enthusiasm, and honesty had drawn Jonah to him from the first time they’d met. And while he’s always been an open book with Jonah, lately, Parker had been holding something back. On top of that, Jonah has realized that his feelings for Parker has grown and for the first time in his life, he’s curious about what Parker’s lips would feel like under his and what his definite male body would feel against his.

Will the holidays bring everything both men want, or will they let this opportunity pass them by?

Let’s meet Bryce Lowery from City Boy, a new gay hockey romance by AE Wasp. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever.

Follow the money or follow your heart? Either way, you lose.

When a blown tire leads directly to mind-blowing sex with a white knight named Dakota, pro-hockey player Bryce Lowery discovers he is most definitely gay.

Being with Dakota opens up a whole new world. Bryce can’t imagine life without him. But he refuses to be Bryce’s dirty little secret. If he wants to keep Dakota, he’s either going to have to come out publicly or retire and walk away from millions of dollars.

City Boy is a first time gay, fish out of water, May/December love story with a happy ending. It features snarky siblings, a dirty-talking farmer, lots of food, and big choices. (No poultry was harmed in the making of this book.)

Introducing Bryce Lowery

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 34

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois

Profession: Hockey Player – Center

Ethnicity: White American

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall, even compared to other guys on the team. 6′ 5″ Dakota says I look like the Brawny guy when I have my beard and my hair is long. It’s not completely inaccurate. Sometimes I shave, but I’ve come to like the hair a bit longer. And Dakota likes it, so I keep it. I work out a lot. I have to, it’s part of the job.

Tell us about yourself, please.

There’s not much to tell, I think. I’m the oldest of five. My father left when the twins were babies. I was ten. I was already playing hockey, so I decided that I would be the best hockey player ever and support my family from it. I never wanted them to be poor again. It was all I did. All I’ve ever done. I don’t even have a high school diploma. I got my GED when I started playing professionally at seventeen. Hockey is all I ever did. Until now. Until I met Dakota.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Dakota Ryan. He’s amazing. He saved my life when we met. Well, he says he just changed a tire, but he kept me from going over a cliff in more ways than one. He’s 24. A farmer. A real life farmer. He was adopted from foster care when he was six by this hippie couple and then raised on the farm. I never met his parents. They died when he was sixteen. So about eight years before we met. I can’t believe how strong he is. He survived and thrived. He knows so much more than I do about mostly everything. Except how to have fun and let people take care of him, he just added. He’s reading over my shoulder.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

We live comfortably. I’m not going to lie. I made some good money playing hockey for so long. And Julia – that’s my sister – she’s invested it wisely. But I’m not into a flashy lifestyle. We live in the gorgeous farmhouse on our apple orchard/farm. I do love to surprise people and indulge them. Before me, Dakota hadn’t been anywhere but Colorado. My favorite thing to spend money on is taking him all the places I love. Seeing them aging through his eyes makes them even more special. Sometimes, I’ll take a bunch of people, his sister and his friends, my siblings and the kids and just go somewhere fun.

What is your viewpoint on wealth?

Oh man. Money is what almost made me lose Dakota and this wonderful life we’ve built. Having too much of it can give you a distorted view of what’s important. And getting it from such a young age, you don’t learn how to solve problems. Not everything can be fixed by throwing money at it. That was my knee-jerk reaction, and it drove Dakota crazy.

Now I see it as a tool, a type of energy. I just want to know that everyone I love will never want for anything. I like taking care of them. I like spreading the wealth. We run a foundation and support a lot of organizations. Children in foster care and making sure low-income kids have access to sports are two of our main causes. Not a surprise, I know.

If someone from your past showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?

I’m going to answer these together, because the answer is the same. My dad. I want to see him and I never want to see him again. Considering he’s dead, I won’t ever see him again in this lifetime. I only found out he was dead when I inherited the farm and orchard. (But that’s a whole long story.) I want to ask him how could he do it? How could he have walked away from a wife and kids? From a family who loved and needed him? I’m never be able to understand that. Family is the most important thing – whether it’s your birth family or your chosen family.

Oh, maybe I’d want to meet Dakota’s birth parents, too. At least my dad just left. His parents, well, they weren’t so nice. The state took him away when he was a toddler. I think they’re still alive. Probably best I don’t ever meet them if they want to stay that way.

But yeah. I’d want my father to answer all my questions, but I have a feeling there’s nothing he could ever say to make me understand him.

Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?

Only from myself, apparently. You’d think I would have known I was gay before I was 34 years old. Other people knew, or suspected. Like my ex-wife.

Then when I fell in love with Dakota, I guess it was pretty obvious, even though I was trying to keep it hidden. I think my mom knew when I picked her up from the airport. She claims it was because I talked about him the entire ride home. She says she kept count and that I said the name Dakota forty-seven time in the hour ride. I think she’s exaggerating.

What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?

That I’m not good at anything but playing hockey, and that the only thing I have to offer anyone in the world is my ability to earn money doing it. Without hockey, I don’t even know who I am.

Is It True: Seducing Cat by Adriana Kraft @AdrianaKraft #RLFblog #RomancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Adriana Kraft, author of Seducing Cat (Meghan’s Playhouse, Book 1), an LGBT Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

What could college English Professor Caitlin Shanahan ever have in common with the brash carpenter Kurt Davis? The sexy sprite Meghan Keenan, that’s what.

Level headed English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has finally earned tenure and purchased the century-old two-story house of her dreams in the college town of Burntside, Wisconsin—at thirty-four, she’d better face facts: her future is teaching college and writing plays, not falling in love. So why is she so drawn to foxy little hometown actress Meghan Keenan, who’s rented her upstairs apartment, or worse, to the girl’s gorgeous hunk of a lover Kurt Davis, a carpenter who’s never even been to college?

Twenty-year-old Meg has a plan. First she’ll seduce the reluctant professor, then she’ll share her sexual delights with both Cat and her brawny carpenter, and when she’s successfully brought them together, she can make her escape and explore what’s beyond the only town she’s ever lived in.

Kurt can’t stand the up-tight professor who’s hired him to build a gazebo and refurbish her old house—the house he wanted for himself. Even if Meg’s scheme succeeds, he knows Caitlin would never look at him twice. No need to go there in his fantasies…

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Four Flames ( R )

Genre: Erotic Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. Our first erotic romance was published in 2007, and we’ve never looked back. With the release of Seducing Cat, we now have a total of 40 novels, novellas and short stories published.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, though it didn’t start out that way. We planned Seducing Cat as a one-shot erotic romp, intending to create a structure to maximize tantalizing erotic scenes. But once characters are created, they take on a life of their own…There are now a total of six books in the Meghan’s Playhouse series, and Seducing Cat is Book One.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No… Unless you count research. See below:
you did research for this book?
Um, yes, but it might be TMI. We’ll just say we’ve learned a great deal about the polyamory lifestyle Meg thrives on. We like to keep readers guessing!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. The century-old four-square house Cat has just purchased plays a central role. It’s modeled on a house we loved and left (had to move) in the Midwest a few years back – 3300 square feet, a central oak staircase, beveled glass windowed double doors to the dining room, living room, and the solarium beyond… So we’ve made the house immortal in Seducing Cat. Without it, Meg wouldn’t have a place to live, she’d never have succeeded in seducing Cat, and Kurt’s path might never have crossed Cat’s.
this book has more than one genre?
Not really – Erotic Romance, pure and simple. Some sub genres, though – LGBT, polyamory, and Ménage. Both Meg and Cat are bisexual.
you speak more than one language?
Yes—and since there are two of us writing together as Adriana Kraft, I’m going to cop to all of them: Besides English, between us we have French, German, Spanish, and a mystery oriental language. I’ll let readers guess, but I might or might not answer truthfully.
you grew up where you live now?
No, neither one of us. We now live in the southwest. I grew up on the east coast, and my husband in the upper Midwest, where we set a lot of our stories, like Seducing Cat, which takes place in Wisconsin.
you love to read?
Do you really have to ask? Mr. Kraft’s parents used to get mad at him for finishing all his Christmas books by the end of Christmas day. I once didn’t hear the rest of the family call me to come downstairs for ice cream because I was buried in a book. And both of us as children sneaked flashlights to read under the covers after we were supposed to be in bed.
you are never late?
Mr. Kraft will laugh at this one! He is never late, and I am pretty chronically a little late. I always think there’s time to do one more thing before we head out the door…
you love pizza?
Yes, if it’s locally made from fresh ingredients and not from a chain restaurant.
you love sushi?
No, neither of us!
you have a pet?
No. A sadness—we used to.

Is It True: Unexpected by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #GayRomance #ContemporaryPlay Is It True with today’s guest, author of Unexpected (A Unexpected Novel Book One), an MM Contemporary Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

A chance meeting will change their lives forever…

From the moment he entered the dark taproom, Caleb Hunt found himself drawn to the handsome man who sat alone at the end of the bar, away from the crowd. His interest in the dark-haired, muscled adonis took him by surprise, not remembering when he’d felt such hunger from a simple glimpse. Unable to stay away, he quickly found an open seat next to him and slid into it. When Ronan turned his ice-blue eyes to Caleb and introduced himself, his warm hand sent shivers of desire through his body and he was enthralled.

Ronan Scott’s boring Friday night had taken a turn for the better when Caleb took the seat next to him. Over the next few hours, he found Caleb easy to talk to and at the same time, he found that he couldn’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful man. Caleb captured his attention in a way that no other had for as long as he could remember. Taking a chance, he leaned forward and captured Caleb’s lips with his. And with the simple kiss, Ronan understood that Caleb would become an essential part of his life.

As Ronan and Caleb explore their new relationship and integrate their lives together, they realize that not everything will be so seamless…

I’m excited to share this blog with you and look forward to hearing what you’d like to see. Let me know in the comments. I read every one.

There is one theme that is common in many gay romance
stories, and that is the prejudices against homosexual people and how they deal
with the barriers caused by prejudices.
As though who have read earlier books in my series will
already know, while same-sex relations were forbidden for the merpeople of
Atlantis it wasn’t due to any religious reason, but rather because the race is
close to extinction, and the mating rituals imposed by the rulers of the sunken
city of Atlantis were introduced to try to prevent them from dying out
entirely.
That doesn’t mean that prejudices are going to be completely
absent from the series and in Shifting Currents the divisions between the
merpeople and the Atlanteans who once inhabited the city are thrown into the
limelight.
In this post I am going to go into a bit of the historical
background as to how the issues between merfolk and the human Atlanteans came
about.
In the history of my world Atlantis didn’t just vanish below
the ocean in some cataclysmic event or devastating storm. Instead, it was
deliberately hidden on the sea floor by the Atlantean gods in an attempt to
save the humans who worshiped them from the coming war of other ancient
peoples. The Atlanteans were gifted with the power to survive at the great
depths and continued to live in the city that had been their home for so many
years.
The merpeople, who lived in the waters around Atlantis,
welcomed the Atlanteans and helped teach them to farm the fruits of the ocean
and thrive in the water, just as they did.
Unfortunately, when two such vastly different races are
thrown together in close quarters, there will always be issues. The two
communities, while living in the same waters, never fully integrated, and there
were plenty of Atlanteans who thought the merpeople shouldn’t live in Atlantis.
Atlantis for the Atlanteans became the common cry from those who saw the
merpeople not as friendly allies, but as half-animal creatures to be looked
down upon and driven out of the sacred city of Atlantis.
Two races, both seeing their claim on the land/waters as
equally valid, were going to come to blows sooner or later.
Delwyn, a merman with the power to see into the past, and
Fabian, an Atlantean living hundreds of years before Delwyn was born, are going
to have to overcome these prejudices if they intend to make a life together.

Shifting Currents by LM Brown

Can a merman and an Atlantean, separated by centuries and
prejudices, find love together?
Merman Delwyn is an Oracle of the past. He loves nothing
better than observing the comings and goings of those who lived centuries
before he was born. His favorite time period to visit is when both Atlantean
and mer inhabited the sunken city of Atlantis, and his guilty pleasure is
watching lovers come together in passion. Secure in the knowledge that no one
can see him when he’s viewing the past, nothing can prepare Delwyn for the
moment Fabian, an Atlantean living in the past, speaks to him.
Fabian is a man with divided loyalties. The demi-god son of
the Goddess of Sea Creatures has sworn to serve the Goddess of Prophecy as her
Oracle of the present. His unique status gives him the power to see anything in
the present, including the mysterious merman voyeur from the distant future.
Despite the centuries that separate them, Delwyn and Fabian
find they have a lot in common and quickly form a friendship that both hope one
day will become something more. But before they can be together in the present,
Delwyn and Fabian must unravel the mysteries of the past.
Only time will tell if the truth about the long-since
vanished Atlanteans will bring them together or tear them apart, as the battle
for the sunken city of Atlantis begins.
