Blurb 

Zeus loves his job on the Mad Creek Search & Rescue team, and his inner Saint Bernard is finally being used to his full potential. When he sees a mysterious and wild-looking quickened—a dog shifter—at an earthquake site in Alaska, Zeus is compelled to investigate. Zeus falls hard for the primal beauty of Timo and of Alaska itself. Both call to his deep canine soul. But the Qimmig pack’s laws are as harsh as the Alaskan winters, and Timo is out of his reach.

Timo’s pack of dog shifters left their Inuit village generations ago and have lived wild ever since. Not trusting the “one-skinned,” and with their numbers dwindling, the Qimmig are on the verge of extinction. Timo is shocked to discover a whole group of “two-skinned” working as a rescue team, and he is particularly fascinated by Zeus, a gentle giant. He senses what Zeus feels for him… but it’s forbidden.
 
Can Mad Creek save this lost quickened clan? Perhaps—if they can learn how to run with the wolves.

Serpent's Teardrop - Mary Rundle

Mary Rundle has a new MM paranormal book out: Serpent’s Teardrop.

The Blackwood Pack saga continues…

This is part of an on-going series by Amazon Bestselling Author, Mary Rundle, and catching up on previous titles is advised. Readers of the past books will enjoy meeting old friends once more as the pack does what it does best ̶ caring for one another and helping shifters everywhere.

Brian, a.k.a. “The Loch Ness Monster” has searched for his Fated Mate in vain for more than 600 years until he scents Reif in the frigid waters of the lake. But his mate seems to be purposely eluding him, so Brian turns to the Shaman of the Blackwood Pack to help find him.

Reif, one of a line of ancient shifters thought to be extinct is drawn to Brian but must focus on completing a mission to free his enslaved people from the clutches of an evil group. Despite his powerful attraction to Brian, he hides from him, believing it’s the only choice he has.

That changes when Reif surreptitiously kisses Brian while he’s sleeping, setting off a chain of events that puts both of them in mortal danger, and the powerful Blackwood pack resolves to help them stave off the wrath of vampires and witches.

Along the way, both Brian and Reif learn some hard lessons about the mutual trust necessary to achieve the happiness and fulfillment both have sought for hundreds of years.

A heartbreaking confession, an action-packed rescue, a riveting courtroom battle and many unexpected twists and turns make this passionate love story by Mary Rundle impossible to put down once you’ve read the first page.

“God, Lee’s a slave driver,” Tony grumbled as he hefted another drum case into the ambulance. “Why he couldn’t let us do this tomorrow, I don’t know.”

“He saw the amount of beer we got for the party,” Kyle said as he joined them. “Don’t think any of us are going to be in a fit state to do anything tomorrow.” Kyle yawned.

“Did Sian get back home okay to start letting everyone in?” Max asked.

“She messaged me a couple of minutes back,” Kyle said. “She’s nearly sold all the gear, so Jade’s giving her a lift.”

“You all live together?” Rick asked.

“Guys, this is Rick, friend of Pete’s.”

Rick gave a little wave.

“Hey,” Kyle said.

“Yeah, we do,” Tony said. “Lee and Kyle moved in three years ago, and Sian, what, a year back maybe?”

“Yeah, something like that.” Max nodded toward the club. “Is there much left in there?”

“Na, a few odd bits,” Tony said. “If you want a shower, you’d better go do it now. Your bag’s in the dressing room.”

“Thanks.” Max leaped out of the ambulance and turned to look at Rick. “Don’t let anyone mess up my system. They forget we all need a place to sit.”

“Hey,” Tony said. “That shit was fun. What part of sitting on top of the amps as we drove back to the motel wasn’t fun?”

“The part where I fell on my ass and nearly got crushed. That part,” Max said, clearly trying not to laugh. “I’ll be back in a bit.”

Rick was careful to follow his instructions, and it wasn’t long before Max reappeared with dripping hair and dressed in fresh black cargo pants, a tight black T-shirt, and chunky, buckled boots. He was a walking wet dream—a straight wet dream. Rick sighed. Just his luck.

“Come on, Max, we’ve got a party to get to,” Lee called out from the driver’s seat as they all took their spots.

The ambulance choked to life. From where Rick was sitting, near the front behind Lee, he could only see Pete opposite him. Kyle was someplace toward the back, and Tony sat up front with Lee.

“Fuck me, I have a seat,” Max said, and Rick craned his neck to watch him clamber into the back and sit in the one clear space. He gave Rick a small smile as he did so, but then curled up, rested his head on one of Tony’s drums, and closed his eyes.

Rick ignored the excited banter going on around him, choosing instead to watch Max sleep. Max looked so vulnerable, so different from how he’d been onstage.

It turned out that Purple Method didn’t live far from the Torrens Club. The ambulance soon braked hard, rattling, and came to an abrupt halt. Max unlocked the back doors and jumped out. The noise coming from outside almost matched what they’d left at the venue. By the time Rick had scrambled out, Max was nowhere to be seen. A multitude of cars and motorcycles surrounded what looked like a three-floor townhouse on a slight hill, with the open front door on the middle level and steps leading up to it. Hordes of people wearing Purple Method T-shirts headed right for them, and loud rock music blared from the house.

“Looks like Sian’s done a good job,” Kyle said as she waved and hurried over.

“Yeah, it was a great idea getting her to let people in.” Tony patted him on the back. “Don’t want to upset the neighbors by having everyone hanging around outside.”

Rick gaped at him. Tony was serious. Surely the number of vehicles surrounding their place, not to mention the volume of their music, should have also been a concern to him. They must be the worst neighbors ever. He was thankful he lived in a quiet cul-de-sac across town.

Meet Max and Rick in a fun and entertaining summer read about a bunch of crazy-ass heavy metal musicians, a martial arts expert, and loads and loads of really delicious food. Purple Method is out on 9th July!

Are you ready to join the party?

Let Me Show You

Becca Seymour has a new MM contemporary romance out: “Let Me Show You.”

When a veterinarian and a construction worker connect, it takes mishaps, mistakes, and a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Rex to show them they’re made for each other.

Dr. Carter Falon is content living a quiet life in a small town caring for his animal patients. That doesn’t mean he’s not looking for a distraction. After finding himself precariously wedged… naked and at the mercy of a drop-dead gorgeous construction worker, Carter hires his savior to renovate his home.

When Tanner Grady’s best friend and new niece needed him, he uprooted and relocated without a second thought. His life has since been centered on work and spending time with his family, but when he comes to the rescue of a cute vet, Tanner finds he’s a lot more interested in the homeowner than the house he’s renovating.

Reuben

With his ear pods in, he was completely unaware of my approach till I was virtually up in his face, and those few seconds gave me precious time to drink him in. Wearing soft, dark jeans that hugged every curve of those long legs, a tight black T-shirt with The Clash in neon green across the chest, a cropped black leather jacket, metal-studded biker boots, and thick strokes of emerald guyliner highlighting those gorgeous tawny eyes, he looked good enough to lay out on the tarmac and eat there and then. That I didn’t simply keep walking and press myself hard up against him, demanding to be fucked senseless right there over the bonnet of his BMW, deserved a fucking gold medal.

He caught sight of my shoes first before his gaze flicked up to my face. The evident irritation when he saw who it was had me wincing. Sure, there might have been a flicker of interest to start, but nah, mostly irritation.

“Hi.” Yep, I was a charmer.

His face gave nothing away. “Hi?”

As in, “What the hell are you doing here,” hi? Well, okay, then. “I just wanted to say thanks again—for saving Cory the other day.”

His gaze remained steady. “You’ve said that. Several times, in fact.”

Right. Not much to work with there. But since when had common sense ever stood in the way of stupidity and raging attraction? “I know, but I’d like the chance to explain… if you’ll hear me out.”

He glanced over my shoulder, and I couldn’t help but follow his gaze. A few more of my teammates, including Mathew, were now shooting the shit in a group by the entrance. None close enough to overhear our conversation, thank God.

“No need.” His tone was flat, his gaze fixed on the group of players.

“Nothing to do with me.”

Jesus, talk about pulling teeth. “Maybe not, but I’d like to. Don’t want you thinking badly of me. Let me buy you a coffee, as thanks.”

He looked at me and sighed. “What do you want, Reuben?”

My mouth opened but nothing came out. Excellent question. What did I want?

“You do realise this isn’t happening?” His finger flicked back and forth between us. “Anything… between us… Is. Not. Happening. So what are you doing? If you want to keep your gay undercover, it’s maybe not the best idea to be seen talking to the guy wearing eyeliner, and who may as well have ‘I love dick’ tattooed on his forehead. I’m hardly a shrinking violet, yeah?”

A valid point and one I had no reasonable answer for. I couldn’t help a cagy glance around the car park once again, and he noted it with impatience. But I couldn’t bring myself to walk away either. Couldn’t do anything more than just stare at him, as it turned out.

His gaze softened. “I don’t… think badly of you. I’m sure there’s a story there, but it’s just not one I need to hear. Got it? So maybe it’s best if you leave.”

I sighed. “Okay.” And yet I didn’t. Shuffled my feet, sure, but no actual walking involved.

He stared at me as if I was just shy of a fucking lunatic. Then he rolled his eyes and sighed. “Fuck. All right, one coffee.” He held up a finger. “One.” He cocked his head and narrowed his gaze to drive the point home.

My heart skittered in my chest, and I nodded vigorously. “Absolutely. One coffee.”

He dropped his head back and groaned. “I cannot believe I’m doing this.” He pushed off the car. “Grind It Out. You know it?”

I nodded. It was a hip little café in St Heliers, right on the beach. I’d been a couple of times with Georgie, not a place the team frequented, a deliberate choice on Cam’s part, I suspected. Wasn’t sure how I would’ve explained it to a teammate, not when I couldn’t fucking explain it myself.

“Be there in an hour.” He strode around to the driver’s door. “Christ, I need my head read,” he said, not quite under his breath. “Now get lost before my brother reams my arse for chatting up the talent… again.”

I spun to find Mathew Wano barely metres away, wearing a scowl the size of the blush on my cheeks. “Hey, Mathew,” I greeted him a little too cheerfully. Nope, nothing suspicious here. “I was just thanking Cam for helping with Cory the other day.”

He glanced slowly between the two of us before throwing his kit in the back seat. “Yeah, he’s good like that, my brother.” He eyeballed Cam. “Always keen to give a guy a hand.”

Cam snorted and slid into the driver’s seat.

Mathew turned and slapped me on the shoulder. “See you Thursday, Taylor. And bring your talent with you this time, huh?” He grinned.

I took the ribbing without offence. Mathew was one of the good guys. I waved them off and headed for my car, doing everything in my power not to fucking skip. I was an hour away from having coffee with

Cameron fucking Wano. Ugh. Crap. I was in so much trouble. Continue reading “Blog Tour: Crossing the Touchline (An Auckland Med Story) by Jay Hogan (Exclusive Excerpt+Giveaway)”

Synopsis

Logan and Christian have been best friends since kindergarten. After spending their entire childhoods together, it makes sense they would go to the same college: the first step toward making their futures intertwine forever as blood brothers.

But being away from home means discovering freedom Logan and Christian have never had before, and their journey of finding who they really want to be—and how they want to fit into each other’s lives—is a messy one.

When a double date with their girlfriends turns into a new, erotic experience, both Logan and Christian are shaken by it. Suddenly, they can’t continue to see each other in a platonic light. Exploring their curiosity feels dangerous even when their girlfriends aren’t an issue, but ignoring their changing feelings is impossible.

Blog Tour: Living on a Dare (A Shore Thing Novel) by Grace Kilian Delaney (Exclusive Excerpt+Giveaway)

Hi! I’m Grace Kilian Delaney. Thanks to Bayou Book Junkie for having me here today to promote Living on a Dare, the first of three books in my upcoming Shore Thing series. After a fake proposal dare goes awry, Julien and Draven find themselves at an impromptu engagement party thrown by Julien’s mother. This exclusive excerpt is from the aftermath.

Draven

“Draven?” he called. “I don’t know what I would’ve done without you tonight. Everyone knows now, and I don’t have to hide it anymore.”

“What do they know, Jules?” I eyed him, my mind racing, trying to puzzle out what everyone at the party knew now that they hadn’t before we’d announced our fake engagement. That left Jules admitting he liked guys.

“That I love you.”

My heart slammed into my chest. I expected him to say something like his entire family finally acknowledged his mom was a bitch and his dad was an alcoholic. But this? He didn’t mean it, not like love love. Just the I love you like a friend love. Yeah, that was it.

I held a hand to my chest, adding a dramatic flair. “Aw, I love you, too, bro. I’ll be right outside the bathroom if you need me.” I kept the bathroom door open in case he needed me and slumped into a kitchen chair.

Eventually, Jules passed out on the tiled floor, and being the devoted friend that I was, I dragged his sad ass to bed.

Once seated, he came to and started unbuttoning his shirt, giving up after struggling. “Draven? Can you…” There wasn’t much I wouldn’t have done for him when he looked pathetically defeated.

“What’s the matter?” I teased as I unbuttoned the shirt. “Your business degree didn’t prepare you for buttons? What a waste of money.”

He slid out of the shirt, trying to shake off the sleeves. I’d forgotten about the buttons on the cuffs. Holding up his arm he mumbled, “Looks like yours didn’t prepare you for them either.”

“That’s because I was in gym clothes my entire college career. Buttons were reserved for you business types.” I undid the cuffs, doing my best to not look at Jules’s chest and failing. His skin was pale from winter but was still darker than my fair shade, and his bronze nipples were taut from the cool air, begging to be touched and licked…by someone who wasn’t me.

He toed out of his shoes and flopped back on his bed and didn’t move.

“Jules?”

“No,” he groaned. “Sleep.”

I lifted his legs and tucked him under the covers. “Good night,” I said, and resisted the urge to kiss him on his temple.

Jules reached for me, catching my wrist. “Don’t go, okay?” he slurred, half asleep.

“I’m not going anywhere. It’s too late.”

“No, I mean, stay here with me.” He tugged gently, pulling me toward the bed.

I shouldn’t.

I should.
