#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.

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 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.

Melinda's Review

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

This book had me hooked from the moment I started it. I sat and read it in one day. The story was heartbreaking, powerful, and one of overcoming tragedy and adversity.

This is about two people trying to overcome one tragic day. Both live this day over and over in two different ways. Britton “Britt” Reeves survived that horrific day and had to learn to live again. She finds comfort in her work and feels protected around all the fighters as a sports therapist. Keller “Killer” Rafael is a MMA fighter who lives day to day with the guilt of what he did or really didn’t do that same horrific day that both endured. He hides behind a new name and intimidates most people just by his scowl and cold eyes.

This story had so much in it there was drama and the chemistry between Britt and Killer was off the charts. This shows two people going through something horrific and trying to come out on the other side but most of all finding love when you thought you were incapable. Killer may have been the Alpha MMA fighter that as a reader is easy to fall for but Britt was the true fighter in this she amazed me at every turn of the page. After everything she went through she is a survivor. Not only did she have to overcome that day but had to deal with her mother and deal with what went along with overcoming her injury. There were some awesome side characters from some of the other fighters to Roxanne that I wouldn’t mind reading more about. Great read that will keep you turning the pages until the last word read.

Excerpt:  Britt freaks out

Britt and Gabriel are waiting for me in his office so we can start our meeting. After my interaction with Wolfe, I’m seething and frustrated. All I want to do is jump into the cage and beat the fuck out of something, release this shit building up inside. Confusing new emotions like jealousy are dueling with my usual focused, raw fury.

The dark, hollow place in my chest isn’t equipped for this. I fight, I fuck, I exist. Nothing more, nothing less.

Furious, I walk over to Gabriel’s office and shove open the door. It bangs against the wall with a loud crack, causing Gabriel to frown and Britt to cry out. Just like that, she drops to the floor, curling into a ball and covering her head with her hands.

Gabriel leaps to his feet, hurrying around his desk to crouch next to a huddling, quivering Britt. Stunned, I stand at the door frozen, unsure what is going on or what I should do.

Meu filha! Britt! What is happening?” Gabriel’s voice hitches as he tries to pull Britt out from under his desk. His head whips around to face me. “Killer! ¡Venha aqui e ayudar!” (Get over here and help..)

I cross the space in two quick steps, approaching Gabriel’s desk from the opposite side. Britt’s tiny frame is tucked into a tight ball, her knees pulled to her chest, head ducked, and arms curled protectively over her head.

Protecting her from what?

“Britt,” I say in as composed of a voice as I can manage, which at this moment, isn’t saying much. Not a lot freaks me out, but right now, watching Britt fall to pieces, has me struggling to keep calm. “Please, come out.”

Britt is quietly sobbing, her body shuddering in fear. Watching her in such obvious distress sends a stabbing pain through my chest. Not sure this is the best thing for her, but not knowing what else to do, I crawl under the desk. Being as large as I am, I can only get my head and shoulders in next to her.

Gabriel slides into nervous, staccato Portuguese. “I will leave you to take care of her. Let me know when she’s feeling better and I will return.” He stands and leaves the room, gently closing the door behind him.

He left me with her?

What the fuck am I supposed to do? At a loss, I do the only thing that comes to mind. It worked to relax her before, so why not? I gather her tiny, trembling body up in my arms, and hold her. Britt immediately unwinds her arms, clutching me tight, burying her face into my shirt, her tears dampening the fabric.

On the floor in my trainer’s office, lying half under a desk, a tiny shard of my black soul becomes human again.

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.

MAYAN BLOOD by Theresa DaLayne
The Stone Legacy Series #1
|| SYNOPSIS ||
Their empires have fallen, but their mythology lives on…
Zanya Coreandero is a seventeen-year-old orphan with only a single friend and no hope for a normal life. Diagnosed with anxiety and night terrors, no one believes her cuts and bruises are a result of an evil entity, and not a brutal case of self-harm.
With the only home she’s ever known being the isolated institution—where breakfast is a handful of medications, the psychiatry sessions are mandatory, and her every move is watched—the only relief is her red-haired roommate named Tara, who’s more like a little sister than her best friend.
Free will is strong, but destiny is stronger…
When Zanya is kidnapped, she meets a group of gifted Mayan descendants, each with a unique ability. Gone from a nameless castaway to the only hope of mankind, Zanya is forced to make a grueling decision: bond with an enchanted stone and save humanity from rising underworld forces, or watch helplessly as Earth falls victim to a familiar dark deity from her dreams. This time, he’s playing for keeps.
A wicked secret hides behind a handsome face…
When Arwan, a dark-eyed timebender, takes interest in Zanya’s mission, it’s unclear if his intention is to help, or if he’s on a hell-bent mission for revenge. Wary of falling for another guy with major secrets and a tainted past, Zanya fights to keep her distance. If only her heart gave her a choice.

When she’s given a chance to aid in the group’s mission, Tara is eager to pull her own weight, even if it means uncovering buried memories of being held prisoner by the underworld general. Now haunted with flashbacks of torture, Tara wanders from the safety of Peter’s arms into a city of depravity and corruption. And amidst all this evil is a young man with an agenda of his own, who leads her down a road that will either prove she is a hero at heart, or drag her into a world she’s always feared.
He wants revenge, she wants redemption. And in an underground ring of missing girls and bloody sacrifices, only the fearless can survive…

LIGHTS OF AURORA by Theresa DaLayne
The Stone Legacy Series #3
|| SYNOPSIS ||
After living her entire life in an orphan asylum, Zanya fears she may actually be losing her mind…
Following the discovery of her ancient Maya bloodlines, eighteen-year-old Zanya Coreandero is faced with a daunting responsibility. She must protect the relic stone while Sarian, the underworld general, ceaselessly drives her to the brink of insanity.
With the approach of an ancient bonding ceremony, Zanya struggles to control her abilities—and her desires…
As the winter solstice approaches, it brings an onslaught of unexpected side effects. While Zanya struggles to seize control over her supercharged powers, she must also face an overwhelming suspicion that her boyfriend, Arwan, is hiding a secret so dark it could destroy them both. And with her powers finally taking root, the struggle to pace their relationship takes on a life of its own.
Just when she thought life couldn’t get more complicated…
With the arrival of a surprise houseguest, Zanya’s deepest fears about Arwan are confirmed. And when middleworld deities intercede, the group of gifted Maya descendants are confronted with hardships they never saw coming—including an enemy more deadly than they have ever faced.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And when that woman has no soul and a taste for revenge, they will need the powers of every surviving ancestor simply to stay alive.

ANARCHY by Theresa DaLayne
The Stone Legacy Series #4
|| SYNOPSIS ||
A single mistake has torn Jayden’s life down the middle, leaving him at a crossroads…
After an ancient Mayan ceremony goes horribly wrong, Jayden is left to face reality—the girl he once loved is pledged to another. At his breaking point, he steals a cab to leave behind the group of enchanted descendants, this time for good.
When Hawa—a beautiful but lethal acquaintance—decides to call shotgun, his only choice is to take her along for the ride.
He’d be glad to have the company…if it were anyone but her. He only knows her by occasionally sharing a hallway in Renato’s huge estate in Belize. It’s clear she has a perma-chip in her shoulder, and they have absolutely nothing in common. So he thinks…
With no cash and nowhere to stay, Hawa leads him into the heart of Guatemala City to an abandoned hotel of orphaned kids. As more of her tainted past is revealed, an unwelcome memory reappears in flesh and blood, threatening to break her wild spirit.
A mysterious orphan is the only one standing between him and the new queen of hell…
Modem, a spunky twelve-year-old girl with a knack for computers, seems to be keeping her eye on Jay. When his abilities go rogue and pull him back to the underworld, Modem shows she’s more than meets the eye.
When everything spirals out of control, Jayden struggles to protect Modem and Hawa from very different enemies. But he won’t be able to save them both…

|| ABOUT THE AUTHOR ||
THERESA DALAYNE
A long-time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa began her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and feature articles to delve into the whimsical world of fiction.
Since then, Theresa has been married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and has been repeatedly guilt-tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having traveled to over a dozen countries—not to mention an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. Wherever life brings her, Theresa will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.

 

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!!!

about the author

meghanmarchpicMeghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She’s also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she’s ever had. She loves hearing from her readers at meghanmarchbooks@gmail.com.
