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. It wasn’t often that Brandon shared a connection with someone who wasn’t aware of his notoriety. 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.

Excerpt

“Come, I want to show you my favorite section here,” he says while dragging me behind him. Now it’s as if he’s a kid in the candy store. Laughter escapes from me while I’m being pulled. I glimpse back and forth between everything as it’s covered in greenery and wonder what it would’ve been like back in the day. As we slow, I notice the Ragnaie up ahead, and I pray that he’s going to say this is his favorite spot. I really want to walk underneath it.

“You coming?” he asks, tilting his head in that direction. I offer the biggest goofy smile ever and follow along. I take in the green trees that cascade over the gravel path making a canopy above our heads. The sunlight peers through open sections of the trees above, creating a spotlight effect down toward the road as we walk along. Pierce takes my hand into his and squeezes it a little more than he has before. I close my eyes and glide through as I imagine being here with my fiancé or lover in the future. We could come here for him to kneel down and propose to me, or to celebrate our first year of being wed.

I stop and breathe in the air around us. I want to memorize this moment for as long as I can. I want to remember exactly what it smells like, the sounds of the birds chirping, and the slight creaking of the branches. I picture that it’s the sound of the branches intertwining more into each other, forming a tighter bond than before. The hopeless romantic in me wonders if that’s the sound that two lovers’ hearts make. When two people who love each other unconditionally grow old together, do their branches mend together to make a canopy of their souls?

MM March Madness – MARCH 21 – Pauline Allan

03-17 - Pauline Allan

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 21

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 Pauline Allan

author bio

Pauline strives to make every reader feel sexy and desired by the time they turns to the last page. The Midwest is home, but her heart stays tethered to New Orleans where she travels three times a year to recharge her creative muse. She is amazed that she gets to wake up every morning next to her hero and go to bed each night listening to her two boys argue over who gets to put the cat to bed. When not writing, Pauline enjoys listening to music and watching Penny Dreadful and Game of Thrones. When it comes to romance, Pauline has one goal. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

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

Funny tidbit. My mother was a showgirl at the Tropicana in Las Vegas before I was born. My father said she had great moves. I was lucky enough to inherit that sexy sway and decided, when I was twenty-one, it would be a grand idea to work at a strip club a couple of nights to pay for a semester tuition while I was in college. Well, I made it up on the stage for the audition. Had the slimy owner give me the thumbs up. The music went live. I covered my hands over my face and ran out of the place. So, I decided to keep my dancing moves on a regular dance floor from then on.

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?

As a reader I enjoy reading them as long as the characters have a deep connection to one and other. I prefer series that tie the heroes together. I also like to write series because I feel I can build the world with layers and create a bond with the reader. I don’t feel they are easier or harder to write. Each book has to stand on its own merit and therefore be as independent as a stand alone. However, it does grant the writer and reader a longer period of time to get to know the whole cast.

Where do you do most of your writing?

In my office. I have a 1900 Victorian home. My office in on the second story. The third floor is reserved for the rug rats. My office is decorated in the likeness of a picture I found of an old brothel in Storyville, New Orleans. The decor consists of all my trinkets from my travels to Nola.

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

Currently, I just finished Lissa Matthews’s Break Me. I’m also reading Megan Hart’s Hold Me Close and Bonnie Dee’s When All The World Sleeps. I am usually reading a fetish, straight, and gay erotic romance all at once.

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

Oh my gosh, yes! I’ve been reading gay romance for years, but never expected the genre to literally explode. The books are rich with broken characters and emotional plot lines. I read more gay romance than any other genre. I love to write gay romance.

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

That I can do it! I’ve been writing short stories and poems since I was a little girl. One day sat down and said, “I think I’ll write a book.” So, I wrote a book, submitted it to a publisher and it got signed. It is amazing I get to write down the stories in my head and people cry and smile when they read them. I feel very blessed.

What are you working on now?

Claiming Dane, the second book in the Hot Southern Nights series comes out on March 22nd. Currently, I’m writing Broken Pieces an erotic romance Young Adult book.

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

Lock myself in my office and write with James Bond movies playing in the background.

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

Highest high…the first time my dad held a signed copy of my first published novel. The lowest…the last time I knew he’d ever hold one of my books again.

Blurb:

Billy Jeffers, pianist, never dreamed of being in a rock band, yet he reluctantly agreed to help a friend start one: Steel Total Destruction. Then, at a Miami club one night, the front man was injured and unable to play lead guitar. Therefore, Billy quickly learned and was then thrust into a spotlight he never wanted.

Madison, lead singer Memphis Black’s sassy twenty-year-old sister, left college to work for Forever Four. She has felt an intense attraction toward Billy from the first time she laid eyes on him. She even makes it apparent, but he brushes off every attempt she makes.

When his world starts crumbling apart, the band’s nice guy becomes deliciously bad. Will he use Madison’s attraction toward him to seduce her into keeping her mouth shut? Or will she reveal the secret that could crush the bond Billy has with Steel Total Destruction and Forever Four?

Hearts will be broken, hate f*cks will be had, friendships will be tested, and all hell will break loose.

Are you ready to rock?

angies review

 

 

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

I am dying!!  This book had me cracking up and then wanting to throat punch the two main characters multiple times through the story….but a good throat punch is always ok right???

Billy and Madison. Madison and Billy.  Those two have been dancing around each other for too damn long.  I have been WAITING for their story since we saw the sparks fly in the very first book.  Billy aka Mr. Primp and Proper who is fighting his attraction for his co-worker/best friend’s little sister.  Madison aka Ms. Wild Child is going to get her man or make him “uncomfortable” for the rebuffs.

Billy is so repulsed by Madison’s behavior but at the same time he is completely turned on by it.  Madison is so mad that Billy won’t admit he want her like she wants him so she is going to make his life a living hell.  When Billy gets some troubling news instead of being the logical thinker be drowns in the bottom of a bottle.  WELLL, that might had been what broke the camel’s back because things with Madison are ON!!  Then when he needs help, Madison is there to jump into the fire to help him figure his drama out.  He is floored by this new side of her.  He is also even more attracted to her.  This is NOT who he thought she was.  Madison is over the moon that Billy is letting her in a bit.  She is even excited he is opening up and trusting her which is something only her wild imagination would have even thought possible.

The sassy and feisty attitude of Madison had me cracking up but then wanting to hug her because she is a kind soul who only wants to help those she cares for.  Billy is so “stickup his butt” until Madison helps him see that wild and out of control is ok and makes life worth living.

My favorite scenes are: Madison breaking her butt…..LOL  yeah its great reading.  I also loved Billy’s affliction…..Again I was cracking up but so moved by his statement.  But what I really loved was seeing Billy let go and open up to let Madison in.  I also loved Madison teaching Billy that unpredictability is a great gift to possess.

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

Today is devoted to Wade Kelly

author bio

Wade Kelly lives and writes in conservative, small-town America on the east coast where it’s not easy to live free and open in one’s beliefs. Wade writes passionately about controversial issues and strives to make a difference by making people think. Wade does not have a background in writing or philosophy, but still draws from personal experience to ponder contentious subjects on paper. There is a lot of pain in the world and people need hope. When not writing, she is thinking about writing, and more than likely scribbling ideas on sticky notes in the car while playing “taxi driver” for her three children. She likes snakes, can’t spell, and has a tendency to make people cry.

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

I refer to myself as an extroverted introvert. LOL. Although I do admit to be progressing toward extrovert, I do have many introverted qualities. I NEED alone time! I have to have quiet to regroup and recharge. I often room alone at conventions because I need some space to decompress after lots of talking and stimulation. Other than that, I am a very social person who likes to talk and hug often!

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 writing a series now. My Roommate’s A Jock? Well, Crap! was the first book in my JOCK Series. It was published in Dec 2012. Book 2 came out Dec 2015. Yes, there is three years between them, but I am a slow writer and wasn’t planning to continue this series until the story just popped into my head. I think they are harder to write than stand alone because you have to consider the information in the previous novel, and often foreshadow the next. There is more to consider.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Lately, on my couch.

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

I am into audio books, so I am listening to Dark Horse White Knight by Josh Lanyon. Favorites include: The Adrien English Series by Josh Lanyon, Sinner’s Gin Series by Rhys Ford, American Love Songs by Ashlyn Kane, The Locker Room by Amy Lane, Widdershins Series by Jordan Hawk

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

Yes, it is growing. I think it has to do with acceptance of same sex relationships instead of treating them as a disease. I think the more people that read LGBT stories, the more demand will be generated.

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

That it isn’t easy and it takes perseverance. You can’t give up when things aren’t flowing. You just have to push on.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing the 4th book in my JOCK Series. Book 2 came out in Dec 2015 – No! Jocks Don’t Date Guys. Book 3 (Back Off! That’s My Jock) has been submitted to Dreamspinner Press and I hope to hear back soon about a contract. I’m also gearing up to promote Bankers’ Hours as it releases from Dreamspinner Press March 25th!

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

Watch a movie with my family. Lately, we’ve been watching episodes of the X-Files together. 🙂

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

Lowest low was after my first novel released and I hoped for huge sales and great reviews! Um, apparently they do not come easily! I was delusional about the business. It is VERY HARD! And when you start out with a book about gay suicide, recognition doesn’t come easily. Highest high came when writing Bankers’ Hours in the summer of 2015. I wrote it in 9 weeks. This was the first time something flowed so easily and I proved to myself I CAN write a novel in a short amount of time. Most of mine have taken a year to write. Finishing this one was thrilling! My career has changed because I’ve learned how to be more dedicated in writing and more organized. Writing EVERYDAY is very important! Over time, I have also learned to let go of bad reviews. In the beginning, they were crushing! Now, I have to think of them as differing opinions. Everyone has their own opinions. I can’t take them personally!

#ReleaseBlitz – The One by Danielle Allen


The cattiness.
The fights.
The shaming.

I don’t generally watch reality television, but I definitely don’t watch reality dating shows. Besides the fact that it’s completely staged, it’s a horrible depiction of people — women especially.

Women are pitted against each other to compete for the affection of a man they “fall in love” with after a week or two.
I call B.S.
It is complete crap.

So when my best friend, Koko, was hired as a makeup artist o the set of the most popular reality dating show, The One, I teased her mercilessly.
She told me that if I didn’t stop teasing her, she would get me back.
And she did…
Which is how I ended up as a contestant on The One.

 Excerpt

 “Ohhhh, yeah,” I remembered, familiarity of the case and the names flooding my brain. “’Sweet’. That case ended her music career, didn’t it? I loved that song. I vaguely remember that he was the one who wrote it, but they settled out of court, right?”

“Yes. But do you know what he looks like now?” My best friend inquired.

“No… I just remember being fascinated by the case because—”

“I’m going to go ahead and stop you right there,” she interrupted, cutting me off mid-sentence.

“We are not going to talk law right now. We are going to talk about you having the chance to bump uglies with Julian Winters. He is the—”

I frowned as I interjected, “The sheer fact that you said ‘bump uglies’ has disqualified you from giving me advice about anything in general, but sex specifically. You need to—”

A quick knock on the door followed by the sound of it being pushed open forced my sentence to end abruptly.

I received this book from an honest review.

I love a good shifter novella.  I read all of the Wolf shifters from Kenize and was stoked to get a bear novella to read.

This story is about Cyrus the bad boy who has loved the neighbor next door, Claire, for 20 years.  When Claire’s no good ex-boyfriend comes back after a 6 year shifter jail term, she is not happy.  When she finds out she has been pushed into an arranged marriage with him, she is livid.  When Cyrus, the dream guy saves her, she is in way over her head!!

I really loved Claire’s character in the story.  She is feisty, spunky and will not be told what to do.  However as strong and feminist like as she is, one smirk from Cyrus has her melting in a pile of goo.  When Cyrus decided to help her from her ex, it was in hopes of getting her himself.  I loved how confident he is even when she sees him with another woman and blows it out of context.

These stories are some of my favorites because they are delicious HEA reads when you have a couple hours to sit and read.

Today is devoted to Bey Deckard

author bio

Born and raised in a small coastal town in northern Québec, Bey spent his early summers on his uncle’s boat and running wild on the beaches of the surrounding islands, lighting fires and building huts out of driftwood and fishermen’s nets. As an adult, he eventually made his way to university and earned a degree in Art History with a strong focus on Anthropology. Primarily a portrait painter and graphic artist, Bey sat down one day and decided to start writing. Bey currently lives in the wilds of Montréal with his best buddy, a ridiculous, spotty pit bull named Murphy.

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

I like doing charity and pro bono work. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed—I do paintings/original artwork for auctions to raise money for shelter dogs, LGBT youth groups, and green initiatives, and I support orgs like MSF (Doctors Without Borders), and non-profits. I’d love to do even more as time goes on.

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 find it’s harder *not* to write a series. My first book was book 1 in a trilogy that’s now turned into a series. Why? Because I love my characters and to continue writing about them makes me happy. I get to revisit them. As a reader, I really enjoy series… as long as they don’t go on too long. I don’t mind things that are unfinished, in fact sometimes I prefer an unfinished series to one that ends weakly.

Where do you do most of your writing?

In my home office—I’ve got a really nice set up now. I used to write on the couch, but that got to be a real pain in the back. I also write on the go using my phone. I wrote most of my first book (Caged) on my old iPhone 4.

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

I’m not reading anything at the moment. I’ve discovered that I’m not very good at reading and writing at the same time. However, I was on vacation a little while ago and devoured Dan Skinner’s “Xperiment”. A fantastic read. My favourite books within the LGBT umbrella would be… hm… “Grif’s Toy” and “Brothers LaFon” by Joseph Lance Tonlet, Jack L. Pyke’s “Don’t” series, “Trasmundo: Escape” by Varian Krylov, Brad Vance’s “Would I Lie to You?”. On the more mainstream side, Cry to Heaven by Anne Rice is one of my all time favourite books. Oh! And The Swede by Robert Karjel was very good. I mostly read science fiction, fantasy, horror, graphic novels, KGB/CIA thrillers, medical texts, non-fiction

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

LGBT romance/erotica? I would guess yes. It feels like folks (at least in some places) are becoming more knowledgeable and inclusive about sexual orientation and gender identity, and so stories featuring characters that span the spectrum are more in demand.

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

The biggest surprise I had was that my readers were largely women. I had no idea that would happen. And, also, that readers expect books to follow certain formulas.

What are you working on now?

I am deep into a fantasy novel right now. It’s called Kestrel’s Talon and it’s tentatively set to come out in April. I don’t yet have a synopsis, but it’s got a page on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28926549-kestrel-s-talon It’s about 60% written so far, so I’ll update the pub date when I have a firm idea of when it’ll be done.

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

Watch movies or go have some drinks with a friend or go to a concert.

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 Nicholas Bella

author bio

About me? Hmmm, I’m just a person with a wild imagination and a love for words who was sitting around the house one day and said, “Why hasn’t anyone written a book like this before?”. As with every storyteller, I wanted to share mine with the world. I like my erotica dark, gritty, sexy… and even a little raunchy. I’m not afraid to go there and I hope you aren’t afraid to go there with me. When I’m not writing, I love watching movies and TV shows, clubbing, biking, and hanging out with family and friends. I love life. I’d love to hear from you, feel free to send me a shout out!

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

I love red meat, pizza, all kinds of music and anime.

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 writing a series because you can do so much more with your characters than with a stand alone book.

Where do you do most of your writing?

I have my laptop hooked up to my television, so I do most of my writing in bed.

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

I’m currently reading Tessa Dawn, Blood Curse series. I like books that are outside of the norm. Author’s who didn’t stick with the traditional and who take big chances with their characters and stories.

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

I do feel that the genre is expanding, and I think that’s because people are more accepting of the LGBT community. Not only that, readers are coming out of their shells and accepting the fact that they find two men or women or two on one, etc, to be extremely sexy. People are also seeing love is love and it is expressed in so many ways.

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

That there is so much involved with promoting. I’m sure every author wishes they could just write a book and the entire world instantly knows about it. But that just isn’t the case. It takes a lot of marketing and no one avenue can always be a success for every author. What works for one may not work for another, so you’re constantly trying to figure out what do I do next?

What are you working on now?

I’m currently writing the 2nd episode of the 4th season of my New Haven Series: Kingdom of Ara. It’s going to be explosive in more ways than one.

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

Write. I love writing. Or hanging out with friends when I can.

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

My highest high happened when my book hit the no. 1 best seller’s spot in LGBT Erotic Horror and earned that coveted orange flag on Amazon. That was a dream come true. The was matched by making the top 100 authors in Horror. All of which I owe to my fans. My lowest low was suffering a wrist injury that affects how much I can write.

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.

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!

MAYRA STATHAM
I have always had an addiction to books. Once upon a time I wrote one, but was easily discouraged.

Today is a new day and have decided to put my work out there.

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.
