Worth the Chase by J.L. Beck

Gia King and Chase Winchester come together in an explosive romance with one chance encounter at love. College, romance, and two families who were hell bent on being enemies. Can love between these two really transpire or will everyone else have the last say?

Sometimes you have to chase what you want.

Unlucky in Love by RD Berg

Two days ago Chloe James considered herself the luckiest woman alive, as she excitedly did the final preparations for her dream wedding. How did she end up in the back of an ambulance in her wedding dress with the brazen paramedic, Braden Dean, on her wedding night? Chloe soon discovers her luck well has run dry, and she just might have become Unlucky In Love.

Chance Encounter by LB Dunbar 

Liars and cheats, that’s what Americans were to me, Chance Fitzgerald. My first impression was a bit skewed then of Keli Donagel. She was breathtakingly beautiful, until I heard that damn accent. Nothing good ever came from the Americans I encountered, most of all those who possessed something I want returned. What a corker that Fate is, though? She had other plans for me.

Lucky Stud by Rebecca Elise

When Kurt Davis let Briony Jensen move in as a favor to his cousin, it was only supposed to be temporary. He never expected to fall for her, but he is determined to make her his.

Just when he thinks he is getting close, Briony drops a bomb on him, forcing him to make a a difficult decision. Does he let her go or beg her to stay?

Love at Lucky Stables by Ashley Hampton

Mystery surrounds Lucky Stables. Many, like Emily Lane’s parents, fell in love there. After tragedy struck, Emily ran far away,believing the stables were cursed. In Emily’s absence, Shane Patterson has stepped in to help Emily’s aging father. When Emily returns home, will Shane help her believe in love and luck

Lucky Me by Kelly Moran

Declan O’Leary’s family is cursed. For the past one-hundred years, bad things happen if they fall in love. So Declan lives his life onewoman at a time. Until he meets Lily Durand and he finds himself wishing for a forever that can never be. Yet their fate encounter and one week of sexual, intimate bliss just might be enough to turn his luck around.

Right Kind of Wrong by K. Renee

Dannicka Grady has no idea she’s in trouble. When her sister Sage sends in a friend to protect her, the sparks fly. Sawyer “Saw” O’Brien is a dirty talking biker, and Dannicka never expected to be drawn to a man like him, especially since their worlds are so different. Can Sawyer protect her and win her heart at the same time?

Lucky for You by Mayra Statham

Ready for a fresh start, single mom Keira Jennings has discovered a slice of in heaven in the mountain town of Whispering Springs,California. Police chief Rex Malone is smitten at first sight for the charming new resident of his hometown. After a routine stop sparks fly. Has Keira’s luck changed for the better? Or is Rex just like every man she’s ever met?

Wish Me Luck by Shantel Tessier

I’ve always considered myself a lucky man. Women and money both come easily. That is until I meet Ashlyn. What was supposed to be fun and simple turns hard and complicated. I’m Ryder O’Kane, and I have fallen for a woman who made one night more memorable than any woman before her. It’s funny how luck runs out when you need it the most.

She loves to read, write and watch her two favorite shows, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.

She has three strong beliefs in life; Vanilla cake and Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream should be a major food group, Halloween should be celebrated every month, and Harry Potter’s birthday should be a national holiday.

L.B. DUNBAR

I’d love to say I’ve written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can’t say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn’t go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn’t something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!

My first series is called 6 degrees of separation… basing it on the theory where we are all connected, even if at the moment we might now know it, later down the road we see it.
The first book of the series is Crown’s Chance at Love.

This is Sabrina Miller & Michael Crown’s story. A story about second and sometimes even third chances, because everyone deserves love.

MM March Madness – March 17 – C Cardeno

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 17

Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to  Cardeno C

author bio

Cardeno C.—CC to friends—is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few awwws into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I’m a vegetarian who enjoys cooking and baking. I also love puppy snuggles.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I try to have a combination of books that are connected and books that aren’t. I call my connected books collections rather than series because they are each standalone with only location or worlds in common. As far as easier or harder, I don’t see a difference although in paranormal worlds, it’s nice to be able to expand a world once you put the effort into building it.

Where do you do most of your writing?

I do almost all of my writing at home, usually on my sofa. I’m not a desk person.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I’m always reading books from the many wonderful authors in the gay romance genre. Currently, I’m reading books by Riley Hart and Felice Stevens, who share a blog and a Facebook group with me.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I absolutely believe the gay romance genre is growing! I chat with readers new to our wonderful genre every day. They come in after discovering a book by one of us and the next thing we know, they have hundreds of books on their e-readers. I hope I’m contributing to the growth by getting my books out there and (hopefully) writing books readers enjoy.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

I’m often surprised by my good fortune in being able to succeed at this. It’s a huge gift in my life.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on a standalone novel tentatively called Moral Turpitude. I’m also working on some new audio books – The One Who Saves Me and More Than Everything.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

I’m doing this interview on a Saturday night and I’m smiling while I do it so that counts as fun. I also love spending time with friends and family. And, of course, I always love reading.

#Review – Beneath These Lies by Meghan March

beneathbanner1

BTL Amazon (2)Look, but don’t touch…she might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more.

She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me.

I’ve got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won’t stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken—especially when the prize is so fine.

In a world where nothing is at it seems, what’s buried beneath these lies?

angies review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

WHAT!!  EEEP!!  OMG SO I can’t tell you the who or the what the story is about but trust me….YOU MUST READ THIS!!

Meghan wants the plot, characters, etc to be a surprise for all her readers…super cool right!!  So when you read your copy (trust me a fan of this series will NEED to read it) remember to keep mum about the plot.

All I can say is that the man is uber alpha and made me love him hard core but no one can take Con’s place and I mean NO ONE.  The female is sassy and spunky so I was loving this couples dynamic.

If you love Meghan’s series then TRUST ME…..get it already!!!

#WOTR #CoverReveal – Physical Distraction by Sierra Hill

wotr-attendingauthor

ecover PD final

synopsis

Sloane Fitzgerald was living the perfect, California-girl life. Engaged to her college boyfriend, working her dream job, and settling into her new home where she’d planned on living happily ever after. It was storybook perfect.
But life isn’t a fairytale.
Sloane’s world is suddenly rocked to the core with a devastating discovery. Needing both time away, and a distraction from her misery, Sloane heads to Boston to take over her late uncle’s failing bar.
Dylan Hemmons lives a charmed bachelor’s existence.
After serving in the Marines, Dylan returns home to the South Boston neighborhood where he grew up. While working for his father’s company has its perks, Dylan realizes his career passions lay elsewhere.
Dylan aspires for more.
He had no idea it would be in the form of a beauty from California. As their lives intersect, Sloane and Dylan find that the electricity between them is more than they can resist.
But Sloane’s past comes knocking on her door. If exposed, the secret she carries could destroy both her teaching career and what they have together.
Will Dylan believe in Sloane, and stand by her when the truth comes out? Or will this fling be over before it begins, and turn out to be just a physical distraction for them both?

about the author

Sierra Hill wrote her first full-length romance after a corporate acquisition led her to a stint of unemployment, offering her some quality writing time.

She loves writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain who constantly shout for their own love story to be told.

Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next book.

Thanks for reading and reviewing her books. Keep the passion alive!

author bio

I have always been a lover of anything that allows my imagination to fly, movies, music, art and of course books of all genres. The opportunity to slip away to another world and live out all sorts of fantasies was the perfect happy place I needed at times, a great escape. It didn’t take long for my love of reading to transform into a desire to write a book of my very own. But being severely dyslexic I never thought that It would be a possibility. Enter my guardian angel with her unrelenting encouragement and I started out on a rollercoaster journey to make my dream come true. When I am not writing I can often be found listening to rock music, delving into the life of a gorgeous alpha male, drawing and painting or trying to teach my cats Boo fishcake and Edward Elton to play fetch [Don’t ask, they think that they are dogs and I am not going to squash their dreams]. My biggest wish that people can find their happy place in the words I write and hope that I can inspire others to know that if I can do they can do it they can share their worlds and imaginations too.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I love all things quirky that allow self-expression. Why be like everyone else? Tattoos are a form of living art a way to share a part of you with the world without words. The same with fashion or hair color and piercings. Anything and everything that allows people to stand out from the crowd. I love it when someone has the courage to just be them and say “This is me, deal with it.” I truly believe that the world would be a better place if we all embraced our differences and didn’t try and get people to conform to what other deem as “normal”. Who wants to be normal anyway? I am a proud member of the crazy, different, strange and follow the beat of my own drummer club.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I love books that belong to a series, but what I am not a fan of are cliffhangers. I am far too impatient about waiting for the next installment. As a reader when enjoying a book that belongs in a series I like to have a conclusion to the main character’s journey, I don’t feel it hinders the story to tie up loose ends for the main characters. As a writer I sometimes feel conflicted about when the story should end and what storylines should be carried forward to the next chapter in the series. That is why I try to write a story that can carry on for several books but focus on certain characters for each book. Then both the readers and I get to have our cake and eat it too. A story that keeps you guessing but not with a ton of unanswered questions only the want to keep reading. That is more hope anyway.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Everywhere. When I am writing I can get pretty absorbed into the story and everything else disappears. In a Café, home. As long as I have my computer and inspiration strikes you’ll find me tapping away.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I am reading Full Domain by Kindle Alexander at the moment. I love all types of genres, some of my favourite M.M Authors and series are Alexa Land First and Forever Series. A.E Via Something Special Series. Jamie Reese The Men of the halfway house series and Mary Calmes Matter of time series.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

The M/M community is growing every day and I am so excited to be added to the list of Authors that write for the genre. I will say that I have met some of the friendliest and generous people within this community. Not only have I gained some great friends but a lot of the Authors were so kind and helpful with offering advice. My hope is that if ever any one needed help in the future I would be there for them as others were for me.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

That whilst I am absorbed in a story I am completely free. Just another of self-expression.

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on the sequel to Succumbing to his Fear. There will be a little snippet at the end of the book.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

I know this is going to make me sound very boring, but I don’t think there is anything better than curling up with a good book. Yes even on a Saturday night. I can hear you saying you boring fart from here.

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

I am at the very start of my writing career so I have yet to experience many of the ups and downs in the industry. I am very lucking though to be surrounded by the best people. A.E.Via and Tim at Via Star Wings Books are fantastic and have helped my achieve my dream. Jay Aheer is so talented and did my Cover Art and Tina Adamski who edited my book and helped me concur so many fears. They are truly amazing and i can’t express how I grateful I am to each of them.

Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo #3) by Victoria Vane

Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo, #3)

synopsis

When Beauty Wants A Baby

Championship bull breeder and former Texas beauty queen Delaney McCall was having a heck of a time finding a daddy for the baby she craved. A failed marriage left her with no desire for another husband, but finding the right stud to satisfy her needs presents a bigger problem that she could have imagined.

And The Bullrider Wants Beauty

After hanging up his spurs, bull rider Zac McDaniel wants nothing more than to fulfill Delaney’s dream of having a family. After all, his best friend’s ex has been his fantasy for years. Zac, however, has no desire to be seen as just a means to an end. When Zac insists on doing things the “old fashioned” way, their passion explodes like a bull out of the chute.

Some Bucking Is Bound To Happen

While insisting it’s all just a passing fancy, the more Delaney sees the softer side of the rough and tumble cowboy, the harder it is to keep her emotions corraled. Zac, meanwhile, is more determined than ever to prove he’s what she really needs, and will do whatever it takes to tear down the mile high fence around her heart…

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 15

Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to CM Michaels

author bio

C.M Michaels grew up in a small town in northern Michigan as the youngest child of a close-knit family of seven. He met his wife, Teresa, while attending Saginaw Valley State University. Together they’ve provided a loving home for several four-legged “kids”, including Sophie, their eternally young at heart, hopelessly spoiled Spaniel. He has always enjoyed writing, and still has fond memories of reading his first book, a children’s novella, to local grade schools when he was 14. C.M. is currently working on the third book in the Sisters in Blood series along with a Fantasy romance called Kerrigan’s Race. An avid reader since discovering Jim Kjelgaard novels in early childhood, his favorite authors include Kelley Armstrong, Peter V. Brett, Richelle Mead, Rachel Caine and Laini Taylor. When he’s not writing, C.M. can be found curled up with a good book, watching movies or hitting the hiking trails with his wife. C.M. currently resides in Louisville, Kentucky.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I am an avid outdoors-man and an ammeter wildlife photographer. My wife and I have visited Yellowstone National Park three times. During our visits we have been fortunate enough to capture great shots of wolves on the hunt, grizzly bears wrestling each other, black bears, coyotes, moose, elk, buffalo, eagles and many other wonderful creatures.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I am currently working on an Urban Fantasy and a Fantasy series. I really enjoy reading and writing series as it gives the author a chance to develop characters beyond what is possible in a stand-alone book and to have a broader plot-arc which readers can enjoy over a span of time. The characters from some of my favorites series have become so familiar that it feels like I am catching up with family when the next installment comes out. Hearing readers passionately speak about how strongly they identify with my characters has been one of the most rewarding aspects of becoming a writer.

Where do you do most of your writing?

I have a home office with an old-school PC. It provides me with a relatively quiet space so I can focus while still being close enough to the family room to not feel totally isolated from my wife. Someday I may break down and get a laptop. Imagining myself kicking back in the lush valleys of Yellowstone, watching buffalo lazily graze the day away while I work on my next creation is certainly a dream of mine 🙂

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I am currently reading the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine. She is most known for her Morganville Vampire series which I really enjoyed. Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines and Vampire Academy series are two of my all-time favorites. Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series is wonderful, too. For Dystopian , I highly recommend Peter V. Brett’s Warded Man series and Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

The Urban Fantasy genre is certainly growing. In spite of me consuming books at a frenzied pace, filling most of our basement, I am never at a shortage for new series to read. I think the reason the genre has so much appeal is that it is still set in the real world, making it easier for readers to imagine themselves as the main characters. At the same time, by introducing magic and the supernatural, the story-line isn’t as bound by the restrictions of ordinary life. More spectacular things can happen. There can be much larger surprises. If you enjoy a good romance sub-plot, rather than being limited to a wrong-side-of-the-tracks scenario, where characters overcome tired social biases to find true love, the hurdles can be much more daunting. Like having to change species, for example. The reader gets to imagine being accepted into a pack of werewolves or joining a vampire coven. The more fantastical world the reader gets to immerse themselves in the more fully they can escape the daily grind.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

How much time is spent in the editing process. Between my own proofreads, making changes from Beta reader feedback, doing my full second draft review prior to submitting to my publisher, then the three rounds of edits with the assigned editor, over nine months is spent editing, versus about six months writing the first draft.

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on finishing the first book in my Fantasy series called Kerrigan’s race, along with the third book in my Urban Fantasy, Sisters in Blood series.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Even after twenty years of marriage, Saturday night is date night with my wife. We are avid movie goers, and manage to catch most films on the big screen with a nice dinner at one of our favorite spots beforehand. It’s our chance each week to spend quality time together.

Tell us about your highest high and your lowest low in your career so far.  How has it changed you?

My highest high would be the day that I signed my first contract and became a published author. While there are certainly multiple avenues to get your work out there these days, for me, being traditionally published was my first huge goal in my writing career. My lowest low would be receiving the countless rejection letters, 145 in all, before landing the deal for my first book. In the end, the third request for a full manuscript landed me the deal. Even though I knew to expect them, reading through the pile of form rejection letters each day can still be disheartening after a while.

Prepare for a little bit of everything. Dangerous Waters was good but Omnipotent blood really outdoes itself. What happens in a world where you are the monster? You are the hunter, predator, monster…vampire. Just when you think things can’t get any worse you find out there are other monsters that are worse than you. Brooke and her family are on the move after the chaos that ensued at the mall. When trying to keep her family safe and trying to figure out her new powers she is abducted by a demon who wants to use her body and powers to overthrow the angels and the earthen realm. From here there is a one hell of a rollercoater ride. Brooke experiences abuse (sexual, mental, and physical) while her body is being overtaken by a demon. She somehow is able to hold on to a thread of her humanity that allows her to overcome the possession. She then has to face some very hard, heart wrenching decisions in order to help the angels fight the war against the demons. The story goes to many dark places while at the same time is witty and is filled with love. This is a beautifully chaotic story that will hold you in it’s clutches.

“Great. My girlfriend is a witch. Can’t wait until we have our first fight. You’ll probably turn me into a toad.”

“Lately, being around me was like doing research on the world’s deadliest neurotoxins while blindfolded and trapped inside an unstable nuclear reactor. I was a one-girl plague.”

“Horrific squeals and shrieks from the beasts doused in her napalm echoed off the rock walls even as others cried out, creating a macabre cacophony of death that sounded like something the devil himself would conduct.”

The one spoiler I will give is there is a happily ever after. Not quite what you expect but sooooo worth the read!

A spur-of-the-moment vacation was supposed to jolt Cameron Douglas out of his funk, but it appears he only traded locations. It was a chance meeting with a handsome stranger that changed everything. Brandon stirs Cameron’s interest and his heart, but will the mysterious man reveal his true identity before their vacation in paradise is over?

Sometimes life in the spotlight was a heavy weight to bear for Brandon Bullet. He never knew if men were interested in him as a person or just enamored with his rock star status – until he meets Cameron Douglas.

He’s determined to keep his identity a secret while the two of them get to know each other and before someone blows his cover.

angies review

I received this book from an honest review.

AHH!!  I love reading this authors books.  It doesn’t matter if it is MM, MMF, or MF, I just love the style of her writing.  I also love how she makes her characters so likeable and so vulnerable but willing to risk it for love.

This story is about broken hearted Cam who takes a vacation to help get over his last break up.  He is sitting at the bar licking his wounded heart when a hot God like man starts a conversation with him.  He ends up spending the day with this mystery man and loving every second of it.

Brandon is there on vacation with his band members when he sees this hot looking guy sitting alone at the bar.  He can tell the guy isn’t into the party environment happening around him so he engages this handsome stranger.

Brandon is stunned when Cam doesn’t recognize him and doesn’t want to let the secret outta the bag about WHO he really is.  The two have fun bonding and hanging around all day.  When the evening finally arrives and things go “further” the two men have feelings and Brandon’s secret is revealed.  Cam could care less about the “real” Brandon but more about this Brandon he has spent the day getting to know and care for.

Now the men have to face the fact that their time is long gone and was too short.  Can they make this quick connection into more than just a summer fling.  I gotta tell you I am super excited for more from these two and what happens with their story.
