From Author Mina Kelly

“When a theft goes wrong Jared finds himself handcuffed to the most important hostage he never meant to take. A bond grows between Jared and Richard that’s more than magnetic, but Jared’s actions comes back to haunt him. When the cuffs are removed Richard storms off, straight into a trap, and now Jared must decide what he’s willing to risk for a man he’s barely known for a week: his life, certainly, but his heart? He’s never risked that before.

Inescapable, published by Loose Id, is a hot m/m sci fi romp, an erotic space opera “just on the right side of a wacky space adventure” (Joyfully Jay), in which “sex, adventure, and excitement abound” . “It’s quite the ride” (Mrs Condit Reads Books).”

From Author Shelli Stevens

BLURB Falling for the bad boy is even more dangerous the second time around. The McLaughlins, Book 1In high school Sarah fell for her best friend’s older brother—one of the sexy, Scottish McLaughlin boys. But a painful betrayal showed her she’d been a fool to give her heart to a bad boy. At least it made it easier to leave him and move halfway around the world when her Navy dad got stationed in Japan.Eleven years later, the death of her grandmother has forced Sarah back to Whidbey Island for a month. It’s the length of time she must stay in her inherited house before she’s allowed to sell it, take the money and run. But when she sees Ian, bad as ever and still looking like sin on a stick, she can’t keep her mouth from watering. One look at Sarah stirs up the regret lingering in Ian’s heart—and never-forgotten desire lingering in his body. He should walk away, especially since divorced single mothers aren’t his style. But when she starts showing up at his family’s pub, he can’t resist a little casual seduction for old time’s sake. One thing quickly becomes clear, though. The heat between them is causing an avalanche of secrets and betrayal and nothing will ever be the same. Link to excerpt. a Rafflecopter giveaway

From Author Sasha Miller

“I’d love to offer the winner their choice of signed paperback from my backlist, which includes:

Saving Liam, featuring an incubus merchant who is blackmailed into seducing a king for all the wrong reasons.

Seeing is Believing, a short story anthology featuring a handful of magical ways to fall in love.

Stolen Hearts, the first in the series (but entirely stand-alone, no cliffhangers here) about a young fairy whose real heart is stolen and replaced by a magical, mechanical charm.

The Trouble with Magic, a collection of three stories featuring dragons, mages, and the volatile ways they mix.

Living Words, featuring a mage who swore off apprentices… and then makes one last exception.”

    The last paragraph for Inescapable has gone a bit wonky – I probably tried too hard with the code – so to attribute the review quotes properly:

    Inescapable, published by Loose Id, is a hot m/m sci fi romp, an erotic space opera “just on the right side of a wacky space adventure” (Joyfully Jay), in which “sex, adventure, and excitement abound” (Top2Bottom Reviews). “It’s quite the ride” (Mrs Condit Reads Books)
