Release Blitz - Recipe For Romance by Ari McKay





Blurb


Four couples, four different stories -- and one spicy Recipe for Romance from author Ari McKay!


Welcome to Montgomery House, Charleston’s finest restaurant. When you walk in the front doors of the stately former mansion, you’ll be surrounded by true Southern charm. Owner Rhys Montgomery will personally welcome you, while the tantalizing scents of Executive Chef Stephen Pierce’s latest culinary masterpiece linger in the air. Enjoy a walk in the gardens or an elegant meal in the dining room, as you watch the love stories play out around you...


Bay Leaves and Bachelors -- Clay Turner’s heart was broken by a wealthy man who said he was boring. When rich, outgoing restaurateur Rhys Montgomery sets his sights on the quiet academic, drawn in by Clay’s intelligence and sex appeal, he finds he has an uphill battle to win Clay’s trust. Can Rhys burrow his way into Clay’s heart, or will Clay’s insecurity become a wall between them that not even true love can break down?


Fennel and Forgiveness -- Seven years ago, Max Boyd broke Darius Cooper’s heart. Darius wanted a commitment, and Max wanted to focus on his career in Georgia’s television industry. Their ten year difference in age and experience tore them apart, but fate throws them back together when Max arrives at the Montgomery House, where Darius now works. Will Southern Wedding Belles bring them a second chance for love or is Darius’s trust too shattered for Max to heal?


Ginger and Gentlemen -- Ian Pierce has lived in his older brother Stephen’s shadow his entire life, always feeling second best. His best friend, Matt Davis, is the only person he trusts to be on his side. Despite being in dire financial straits, Ian wants to refuse Stephen’s request to film an episode of Mouth of the South at Ian’s restaurant, but the bonus money offered in the contract is too much to resist. He accepts without knowing the hefty bonus comes from Matt, not the production company. Will Ian feel betrayed by the one person he trusts above all others when he finds out, or will Matt’s desire to help Ian succeed even at his own financial risk take them from friends to lovers at last?


Cinnamon and Seduction -- Chef Stephen Pierce has talent and a determination to succeed that is matched only by his fierce temper and prickly personality. Yet his long-suffering personal assistant, Robert Logan, has carried a torch for Stephen since the day they met. Everyone around Montgomery House knows Robert is in love with Stephen -- everyone, that is, except Stephen himself. Can Rhys, Clay, Darius, Max, Ian, and Matt find a way to make Stephen see that Robert is the perfect man for him, or will even Robert’s legendary talent for matchmaking fail to win him the man he loves?


Ari McKay is the professional pseudonym for Arionrhod and McKay, who have been writing together for over a decade. Their collaborations encompass a wide variety of romance genres, including contemporary, fantasy, science fiction, gothic, and action/adventure. Their work includes the Blood Bathory series of paranormal novels, the Herc’s Mercs series, as well as two historical Westerns: Heart of Stone and Finding Forgiveness. When not writing, they can often be found scheming over costume designs or binge watching TV shows together.


Arionrhod is a systems engineer by day who is eagerly looking forward to (hopefully) becoming a full time writer in the not-too-distant future. Now that she is an empty-nester, she has turned her attentions to finding the perfect piece of land to build a fortress in preparation for the zombie apocalypse, and baking (and eating) far too many cakes.


McKay is an English teacher who has been writing for one reason or another most of her life. She also enjoys knitting, reading, cooking, and playing video games. She has been known to knit in public. Given she has the survival skills of a gnat, she’s relying on Arionrhod to help her survive the zombie apocalypse.

Audio Review Tour - The Other Book by Roe Horvat





Length: 4hrs 26mins

Cover Design: Roe Horvat

Narrated By: Vance Bastian

Blurb

It was supposed to be just sex...Famous last words.


Tyler doesn't overthink pleasure and avoids complications. He knows it might be stupid to get involved with his closeted boss, but the temptation is too great. At first, the cold and beautiful Joel Sandstrom seems to loathe Tyler's guts.


Except one late night at the office, his reasons become clear...and his control breaks.


Every time they touch, Joel's stony face comes alive, harsh lines smooth out, and for a minute, he looks serene. Happy, even. Just sex - dirty, intense, spectacular sex.


During their covert encounters, Tyler discovers the power he has over the lonesome man, and it's a heady feeling. What if he could set Joel free and give him peace of mind? When Tyler realizes how much Joel needs him, he doesn't regret breaking his own rules.


Gay erotic romance. Contains explicit scenes and sexual interactions between more than two partners. For adult readers only.

My Two Pennies' Worth

Oh my. Well, don't listen to that as you wander around doing your grocery shopping! I'd forgotten quite how filthy this book was and it always seems dirtier when someone is whispering it in your ear walking around Tesco.
And yet it's not erotica, there's a beautiful love story behind all that sex. But there is a lot of sex in this book, a lot of very explicit sex, some with multiple partners, but it all works to move the plot and the relationship forward. Oh my, what a joy, even when you're sweating your bits off in the car because you daren't even crank the window an inch in case the car in the next lane has their window open.
Superficially it may seem hard to believe that this is written by the same author that wrote the sweet and gentle Vanilla Clouds. But that's just subject matter, this still has that beautiful descriptive writing style that Roe does so effortlessly.
Please don't let the multiple partners put you off reading this book. It's glorious.

Audio Review Tour - Will & Patrick Wake Up Married 1-3 by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths





Length: 11hrs 34mins

Narrator: John Solo

Blurb

Episode 1: Will & Patrick Wake Up Married


After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out - unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage. Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!


Episode 2: Will & Patrick Meet the Family


Meeting the family is challenging for every new couple. But for Will and Patrick, the awkward family moments only grow more hilarious - and painful - when they must hide the truth of their predicament from the people they care about most. Throw in the sexual tension flaring between them and you've got a recipe for madcap laughs and surprisingly heartwarming feels.


Episode 3: Will & Patrick Do the Holidays


A couple’s first holiday season is always a special time. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve are magical when you’re in love. Too bad Will and Patrick’s marriage is a sham and they’re only faking their affection for each other. Or are they? Sparks fly in this episode of the Wake Up Married serial. Will the sexual tension between Will and Patrick finally explode in a needy night of passion? Or will they continue to deny their feelings?

My Two Pennies' Worth

I've read several Leta Blake books, but for some reason, despite owning the entire series, I never read Will and Patrick's story. So I was going into this fresh, with no preconceptions. First off, this is the second John Solo narration I've listened to and I like him: his delivery is expressive, the voices are distinct, and he adds an extra layer to the story. 

Married in Vegas and unable to divorce for reasons (like Patrick wanting to keep his fingers) this story is the fake boyfriend trope to the extreme. Let's get the things I didn't like out of the way first, and surprisingly one of those things wasn't Ryan. I didn't like him but then we, the readers, weren't meant to, he's the bad guy, the poisonous ex, the enabler of Will's drinking half the time and a negative force in his life. No the people I didn't like were the rest of the Ryan-brigade including and especially Will's Mum. I won't start on how much I hated her but every scene left me with my blood boiling and resentment that Will wouldn't stand up for himself. So Will's Mum's a bitch and Will's got serious self-esteem issues and he's a little bit of a doormat except when he's with...

Patrick. Patrick is an arsehole, but he is the heart of this series. And I don't mean the series is about him, no, he is the true hero of the story, kind, compassionate and caring, all under a veneer of sarcasm, harsh home truths, and unfiltered statements. He has no social skills. He's rude. He's brash and arrogant. But I loved him and I have no idea why Will would pine endlessly over a man who was quite obviously cheating on him when they were together when he could have Patrick, with his bendy yoga body and quiet consideration of Will's diabetes. No contest.

The tale is no where near finished, with another 3 books to come, but that would have made for an unwieldy audiobook (and probably a sore throat for Mr Solo!). I shall just wait patiently for the rest. Or I could just dig out those Kindle editions and have a read.





Author of the bestselling book Smoky Mountain Dreams and the fan favorite Training Season, Leta Blake’s educational and professional background is in psychology and finance, respectively. However, her passion has always been for writing. She enjoys crafting romance stories and exploring the psyches of made up people.

Review Tour - Single by RJ Scott





Length: 54,000 words approx.

Cover Design: RJ Scott

Blurb

Reeling from the painful rejection of a man he thought he loved, Asher is left holding the baby.


Ash wants a family, and is determined to continue with a surrogacy he’d begun with his ex. Bringing baby Mia home, he vows that he will be the best father he can be. Nothing in this world matters more to him than caring for his daughter, not even accidentally falling in lust with the doctor next door. Challenged by his growing attraction to Sean, and confronted by painful memories of his family, Ash has to learn that love is all that matters.


When ER doctor Sean moves in with his friends next door to sexy single father Ash, he falls so quickly it takes his breath away. The sex they have is hot, but Ash is adamant his heart is too full with love for his daughter to let anyone else in. Why is Sean the only one who sees how scared Ash is, and how can he prove to his new lover that he desperately wants the three of them to become a family?

My Two Pennies Worth

First book in a new series from RJ Scott.
This is a sweet low angst story about a single dad with a new baby. It focuses as much on Ash and his insecurities looking after baby Mia as the romance developing between Ash and his sexy neighbour, Sean. 
I loved Sean and his roommates, they worked well together. 
Ash's family weren't as easy to like. I honestly thought his twin was manipulative and disrespectful of his feelings. 
I'd have liked some more scenes at the Single Dad forum meetings.

All in all an easy read with characters you want to cheer for. Looking forward to Eric and Brady's story.

Release Blitz - A Foreign Country (Mr & Mr Detective Story #2) by Alex Jane





Length: 68,000 words approx.

A Mr & Mr Detective Story Series

Book #1 - Gazes Into You - Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link

Blurb

Private Detective John Right’s life is pretty good.


He loathes paperwork and could do without wasting his weekends catching out cheating spouses, but business is booming and he’s sharing his life with Jason, a man he’s still crazy about after three years.


The only downside is his lover’s baffling choice of friends and the fact that John is convinced Jason is keeping secrets from his dark past.


When a late-night phone call leads them to a kidnap victim with amnesia, and a dangerous man from Jason’s previous life suddenly resurfaces, they have much more than just secrets to deal with.


And after their mysterious house guest starts to show more than a passing interest in the detective couple, John is left struggling when his relationship, as well as his detecting skills, are put to the test.


Are they strong enough to resist the temptation of an enigmatic stranger?


Maybe. If they don’t get killed in the meantime.



After spending far too long creating stories in her head, Alex finally plucked up the courage to write them down and realized it was quite fun seeing them on the page after all.


Free from aspirations of literary greatness, Alex simply hopes to entertain by spinning a good yarn of love and life, wrapped up with a happy ending. Although, if her characters have to go through Hell to get there, she’s a-okay with that.


With only a dysfunctional taste in music and a one-eyed dog to otherwise fill her days, Alex writes and walks on the South Coast of England—even when her heart and spellcheck are in New York.

When Noah’s insecurity threatens their fledgling relationship, can Sol convince Noah that he’s enough?


Noah thinks he’s nothing special. Average height, a bit on the skinny side, and cute but rather geeky, he’s relentlessly ordinary. He certainly doesn’t expect to be noticed by Sol, the gorgeous dark-haired stranger Noah usually sees on his commute home.


When a friend persuades Noah to take a big risk in a bid to get Sol’s attention, things turn out better than Noah dared to hope. But Noah doesn’t believe he’s interesting or sexy enough to hold Sol’s attention.


As Sol tries to get closer, Noah tries to protect his heart by pulling away. If their relationship is going to survive, Noah needs to accept that Sol sees him very differently to how Noah sees himself. Because to Sol, Noah is something very special indeed.

Review Tour - Kiss Me Again by Garrett Leigh




Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link - Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow With Kindle Unlimited

Cover Design: Black Jazz Design

Length: 227 pages

Blurb

Tree surgeon Aidan Drummond is content with his own company. He works alone, and lives alone, and it doesn’t occur to him to want anything else until a life-changing accident lands him in hospital. Then a glimpse of the beautiful boy in the opposite bed changes everything.


Ludo Giordano is trapped on the ward with a bunch of old men. His mind plays tricks on him, keeping him awake. Then late one night, a new face brings a welcome distraction. Their unlikely friendship is addictive. And, like most things in Ludo’s life, temporary.


Back in the real world, Aidan’s monochrome existence is no longer enough. He craves the colour Ludo brought him, and when a chance meeting brings them back together, before long, they’re inseparable again.


But bliss comes with complications. Aidan is on the road to recovery, but Ludo has been unwell his entire life, and that’s not going to change. Aidan can kiss him as much as he likes, but if he can’t help Ludo when he needs him most, they don’t stand a chance.


"Kiss Me Again is a deliciously tender and prickly romance about the intimacy that comes with acceptance. Ludo and Aidan accept and love each other for exactly who they are—complications, injuries, mental health issues, moods—and I loved them for it." -- Roan Parish

My Two Pennies' Worth 

Garrett Leigh does it again. Her romances feel so real, like this couple really does live down the road from you, like she has a window into the life of real, complicated people and it's simply her job to document their relationship. Garrett claims she doesn't write fluff but I thought this hurt/comfort story was sweet, and the relationship charming. Yes, Aidan's a gruff solitary character with a choice turn of phrase but his acceptance of Ludo and the development of their relationship was a joy to behold. That's not to say there was no angst, I don't feel I've read a Garrett Leigh book if she doesn't move me to tears at least once.
Highly recommended.

Beto Hernandez’s objective: Break the human trafficking ring plaguing Skagit once and for all. He’s not in Skagit to make friends—he's kicking ass first and taking names later. Maybe. He crosses paths with an intriguing and sexy man, the first in years to spark Beto’s interest. It’s ultimate bad timing, though; no one in Skagit can be trusted.

Who is Carsten Quinn, and where does he fit in Beto’s investigation? Beto tries to stay away from Carsten but their undeniable chemistry keeps him close.

Carsten Quinn survived years in hell to return to “normal life,” and he has his own mission in Skagit. The only problem is he’s hiding, not living anything like a normal life. When his closest friend is severely injured it’s up to Carsten to finish gathering evidence to put some very bad people behind bars and he knows all too well he can’t trust anyone, especially not the law.

Ironically, the law appears anyway, in the form of a sexy cop he can’t stop thinking about; when Carsten’s past comes back with a vengeance, he has no one else to turn to.

Is happiness too much to hope for? Are Beto and Carsten too different and too broken to trust anyone, much less each other?

I write the Accidental Roots series, set here in the Pacific Northwest featuring hot mm romance and the guarantee of a happy ending for my men. They start out broken, and maybe they end up that way too, but they always find the other half of their hearts.


I started writing way back when but only began publishing about two and a half years ago and now have nine books out. Each features a couple in my little universe, sometimes there is added mystery and suspense.


Thank you for supporting this Indie Author,


Elle

Review Tour - Nine Small Sips (A Tales Of Bryant Wedding) by V.L. Locey






Cover Design: Sloan J Designs

Tales of Bryant - Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link

Blurb

Life for Isamu Taylor is now a Cinderella story that includes a Manhattan loft, a new position in the hottest LGBT film production company in New York City, and an upcoming wedding in Bryant Park to his very own handsome prince.


He’s come a long way from that struggling film student with ratty sneakers and shaggy hair. Isamu is now living an urbanite’s fairy tale with that happily ever after just around a bustling city street corner.


But as all wedding planners know, even the best laid plans seem to go awry, and Isamu and Brian’s wedding is no exception. But love – both old and new – is in the air, so nothing can go too badly, right?

My Two Pennies' Worth

Brian and Isamu are getting married. In two weeks. Oh my, I love these guys so much. No wedding ever goes smoothly. Disasters abound with unexpected job offers, old loves, an overly dramatic mimosa swilling wedding planner, and Isamu's grandmother arriving from Japan. But there's no use crying over spilt olive oil. This is TrueLove and nothing will get in the way of the weeding of the year, not even lemon flavoured shots.

The writing is on point, the side characters are well rounded and the leads are still adorable and madly hot together. And while things went awry and Isamu in particular had the occasional wobble, this is ultimately a joyful story with the love these have for each other shining through in every touch.

Highly recommended and I can't wait until 2020 to see if Devon finds his prince charming.







USA Today Bestselling Author V.L. Locey – Penning LGBT hockey romance that skates into sinful pleasures.


V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Dr. Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a pair of geese, far too many chickens, and two steers.


When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in one hand and a steamy romance novel in the other.
