 Now Live! 
When Andriana Milne-Marchetti kisses an old family friend under an apple tree, she never imagines he’ll run halfway around the world and stay gone for three years.
Thirty-five-year-old asexual Andie runs a small remote family farm in Scotland. She’s happy with her fruit trees and berries. Her Airedale terrier, Rupert, provides all the companionship she needs.
But her heart longs for one man, who probably never felt more than friendship for her.
Silver fox Docherty Fabre returns home to Scotland, hoping to break through a year-long battle with writer’s block. He’s taking up residence in a tiny cottage on the Milne-Marchetti farm. Now, if he can avoid embarrassing himself for a second time in front of Andie, everything will be fine.
Their second chance at romance comes from a year-long lockdown that prevents them from running away from their feelings.
With no one else around, can they find love in the orchard one more time?

Return to small-town Chesapeake and fall in love with the single-dad bad boy who keeps breaking hearts, and the adorable geek who can’t help but fall head over heels for his brother’s best friend.
For one night with the man of his dreams, Taran’s willing to break all his rules…
Taran’s always been the reliable one. Safe. Which is why he keeps getting dumped by the assholes he dates. And after the latest round of “too boring,” he’s ready to drink his blues away. That’s until Silas King shows up—the gorgeous guy he’d swooned over through high school.
Silas wants one more night of distraction before his new reality sets in, and he sets his sights on Taran, his friend’s little brother who’s looking sexier than ever. It’s not like he can get in any more trouble than he’s already found himself in.
After Taran and Silas spend one unforgettable night together, feelings emerge, ones quickly stamped out when Silas confesses why he’s back in town. He’s returned to meet his three-month-old daughter.
With that chaos in his life, Silas can’t pursue anything further with Taran, and having longed for Silas his whole damn life, Taran isn’t sure he’ll survive the aftermath. Yet the more they try to avoid their connection, the more they keep colliding… until the passion between them detonates.

Blog Tour ~ No Wrong Moves by Becca Seymour (Excerpt + Giveaway)

Author: Becca Seymour

Book: No More Secrets
Release Date: October 20th, 2022
Series: Zone Defense #3
Genre: MM Romance
Cover Designer: Booksmith Design
This book was such a winner. I love the sweetness, the passion, the fun, the devotion, and the love that is displayed throughout the book.” – Goodreads Review *****

Pining for your best friend sucks ass—and not the good kind of sucking. But I can’t back away, and I definitely can’t let go. Eddie Phelps is too damn important to me. He has my heart and soul. Well, he and his daughter, a ten-year-old who one day will run the world.

It’s not like I can even blame Eddie for mixed signals or anything. He’s done everything right. He always does. Honestly, that’s part of his problem.

But I won’t put pressure on him. That means it’s down to Eddie to see how freakin’ awesome a catch I am. I just have no idea how exactly I’ll get him to do that.

Sure, I’m a professional basketball player. But once upon a time, so was he. It’s going to take something huge to get him to see beyond my age *cough immaturity cough*. But since Eddie isn’t one for making wrong moves, I’m not sure a grand gesture will work.

That leads me back to pining, and hoping somehow, someway, he’ll see me as more than a joker. More than his best friend—even though I’m a kick-ass one. Maybe someday, he’ll know I’m exactly the person he needs to make the move on.

When a college hockey player needs the help of a sexy older attorney, he gets more than he bargained for when trying to sort out the troubles in his career. Falling in love was never part of either man’s plan.
Corrigan Ellery wants to play in the NHL, and the way he hopes to get there is through D1 hockey. His plan is solid but begins falling apart the instant he steps onto the college campus. Old traditions and stereotypes lock him out before he’s even in. With no options for failure, he must make his plan work, which is why he has no time to complicate his life by getting involved with a sexy lawyer who is ten years his senior and part of the society that is impeding his plans. But boy, he’d enjoy some bedroom game misconduct with the counselor.
Logical and meticulous, Sacha Weymouth, who is adept at predicting and controlling outcomes, is a successful defense attorney, slated to one day be a partner at a prestigious firm—that is, until a rogue client causes his demotion. Now, he’s a step above a gopher at the university law center assigned to getting a contract signed by a hot-shot hockey player. Instead of a signature, he has his life flipped in a direction he never saw coming… to which he objects. But will his heart overrule his head?
Corrigan’s and Sacha’s lives should never have collided. Now they’re left questioning if they’re standing in the way of the other’s future goals, or if there’s room for redirection.

Release Tour ~ Rules, Schmules! by Becca Seymour (Excerpt)

Book: Rules, Schmules!

Release Date: June 29th, 2022
Series: Fast Break #1
Genre: MM Romance
Cover Designer: Booksmith Design
“With good heat and moderately low angst. It had me laughing out loud at multiple times and has me itching to read more of Becca Seymour’s work.” – Read with Sarah Reviews *****

It’s not my milkshake that brings Kieran Kendall to my yard. Okay, maybe it’s a little bit my milkshake. But I also like to think it’s my dazzling personality and my magical… uhm… you get the idea.

Since meeting Kieran, my first, second, and admittedly third impressions of him have changed radically. Not surprising, since he was a prize D during at least two of those encounters. What I should be doing is running from the college basketball star who checks so many of my dream-guy boxes. But do you know how hard it is to find a hot guy who’s as smart as he is talented?

And I’m not just talking about his talent on the basketball court. Heck no.

It’s easy to get distracted by him, because of him, yet as far as he’s concerned, I’m the one who’s a distraction and throwing his carefully constructed plans out of whack.

I should be sorry. I should also be better at guarding my heart.

But Kieran Kendall is under my skin, and getting him to break his rules is far too much fun.

Except now that they’re working together, neither can ignore the chemistry that’s one spark away from burning down a forest. And when they finally collide, the connection is beyond anything either has experienced.
