a May-December romance with a twist ‘At War With a Broken Heart’ #Gay #Contemporary #Romance @DahliaDonovan @SDSXXTours

At War With a Broken Heart
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
What’s the perfect recipe for an emotional MMM romance?
One autistic coffee shop owner, one morose mug maker, and a mostly
cheerful police detective.
Fie Morogh Russell goes off to war with a broken heart and returns with a
shattered spirit. He hermits away in Bideford, Devon, making mugs,
with his service dog, Haggard, for company. Post-traumatic stress
turns every memory into a minefield, and life is dismal with one or
two rare exceptions.
Davet Heuse drags his younger brother to Bideford for a new start. Both
autistic, the two siblings have fought hard to enjoy freedom by the
seaside. While Davet runs a coffee shop from his tiny house, his
brother pursues his dream at university.
Detective Sidney Little has transitioned from military service to the police
force easily. His unrequited crushes and his estranged father are the
only points of frustration in his life. He hasn’t quite figured out
how to deal with either problem.
When a tragic accident brings Davet’s world crashing down around him, can
Fie and Sid help him through the pain of loss?
In this May-December romance with a twist, three men struggle through
one obstacle after the other to somehow find themselves in love on
the other side.
Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about
shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and
unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her
life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive
collection of books and video games.

There he has a raunchy chance encounter with a stranger on a train
who he meets again in unsuspected circumstances. In between all the

worryingly, life threatening.

Berkeley gets a call from one of his best friends from London, Paul,
his dose of bad karma is completed when he discovers Paul’s younger

himself at every available man in any bar or at any rodeo event,

than meets the eye.

instincts in search of the Native American, Nantan. Curious and keen

lot closer than he expected to finding out what it’s really like.
Love conquers all as Berkeley escapes a close encounter with death
that cements his future with Nantan.
The Imposter

happening and why. Berkeley’s gardener, Rene, a Santeria Priest, is

opportunity. With another few suspects thrown into the pot, Berkeley
and Rick have their work cut out before time runs out and death
strikes again.

The greed of dragons and humans ‘Enukara’ #gay #Fantasy #Romance #Series @Mizner13 @SDSXXTours

Dragons and Healers
Enukara Series Book 1
by Nina R. Schluntz
Genre: M/M Fantasy Romance
A simple act of kindness from a human toward a dragon triggered the
Enukara–giving the human the ability to heal the wounds of others.
The dragon bonded to him was granted immortality. The price for this
gift was simple. The dragon’s life was bound to the human.
The greed of dragons and humans was underestimated. For if an Enukara’s
life was taken by another, they would inherit the immortality blessed
to the dragon. Both human and dragon could steal this gift. The
slaughter of all Enukaras quickly ensued, until one dragon killed his
own Enukara.
The power he inherited was unfathomable. He hunted and killed every
immortal who had slain an Enukara. A new Enukara emerges who
challenges the mindset of the immortal dragon and the Enukara hopes
to alter the fate of humanity, by showing the dragon how to love once again.
Immortal Black Dragons
Enukara Series Book 2
Zackariah created an Enukara back when they were being made every day, and
murdered hours later. Despite the odds, he managed to keep his alive
long enough to understand how compassionate humans can be. Decades
later, he meets his Enukara’s son, Jonas, and finds that he is now
an Enukara. Zackariah must decide if he will tell him the truth
behind his mother’s death, even if it risks the relationship
forming between them.
Jonas knows Zackariah murdered his mother. He can accept this, but not the
swirling lies around the reason why he did it. If he makes the same
error it will lead to not only his death, but the death of all the
Enukaras, present and future.
The First Generation
Enukara Series Book 3
The initial dragon invasion force came to collect and befriend the humans
of Earth. Immortal by birthright, this first generation of dragons
peacefully coexisted with humans for decades until reaching maturity.
By mating with humans, a second generation was created, a solider
force with one mindset, to decrease the population on Earth.
The current dragons populating the Earth have the ability to create
healers known as Enukaras. The surviving first generation live in
isolation. Jeremiah, an operative from a first generation colony, is
sent out to investigate rumors of a woman pregnant with a dragon. His
encounter with the dragon king, Zackariah, leads to an immediate
infatuation.
Jeremiah’s attempts to secretly prevent the unborn child’s birth while
seducing the dragon king quickly escalates tension between his people
and those that follow the dragon king.
Jeremiah must work with the dragon king’s other lover, an Enukara, to
prevent a second dragon war.
Elemental Dragon Mages
Enukara Book 4
Meant to bring harmony to the Earth after years of turmoil from the dragon
invasion, Elemental Dragons emerge and seek their human
counterparts—Dragon Mages.
Deemed a threat to all current social orders and leaders, some seek to
prevent the Elemental Dragons from finding their mages and attaining
their true powers. Others offer a recruitment program, wanting to
capitalize on their abilities.
Xander has spent most of his life loyal to the dragon king, who adopted him
as a hatchling. Upon his encounter with a human who can become his
Dragon Mage, he feels his first independent desires and his loyalties
are tested.
Kaylee never knew her background, or that much about dragons. Finding
herself with a bloodline capable of making her into a powerful mage,
she must decide which Elemental Dragon she desires to bond with, and
which leader she wishes to align with.



The Second Generation
Enukara Book 5
The second generation of dragons, known for being a unified force of
soldiers, have never grown to adulthood. Until now. Destiny is the
first to reach maturity. Nurtured by the dragon king’s closest
allies, she has become more than a killer—she wants to belong. But
she doesn’t fit with any of the dragons or the humans.
As her first breeding day arrives, she must choose a mate. Her choice
could deter a war, or led to the end of the dragon king’s reign.
The problem is, only one person knows how much is at stake, Jeremiah,
whose drug abuse has left him barely functional. As Jeremiah’s life
spirals, he realizes the end of all dragons hinges on his ability to
stay sober enough to save the dragon king from his untimely destiny.
Devolution
Enukara Book 6
Seven hundred years after the initial dragon invasion, the world is now
controlled by humans. Dragons have devolved into animals. They’ve
lost their ability to shift into humans and with it, their
intelligence. Humans enslave them like the animals they are, using
them to power factories and in some countries, even eat and skin.
Brothers, Ellis and Wyatt believe the dragons have more potential than
humankind give them. When they discover an escaped dragon in their
barn, they know she’ll be killed if returned to her owners. They
decide to take matters into their own hands and ask a drifter they
met at a bar for help. He’s rumored to be a dragon whisperer and
might just be the one to help the dragons rediscover who they are.

start of a passionate love affair… ‘The Romantic’ #Gay #Romance @ElodieParkes

The Romantic
MM romance from eXtasy Books

To his delight one of them contains what he hopes will bring an end to his loneliness and heartache. As he prepares to cast an ancient prayer spell to the god of love, across town Ethan Goss decides that moving to a new apartment will ease his broken heart.
With the help of an eccentric real estate agent, gorgeous Ethan goes to a viewing in the block where Luke lives.
When Luke meets Ethan in the lobby, it’s the start of a passionate love affair. 
Fate hasn’t finished with the two handsome men—will true happiness evade them both?
#gayromance with an edge of paranormal 


Warning this story contains MM sex in the love scenes.


Read the teaser

In the lobby, Victor stopped walking. “I should show you the garden, but I need the key for the gate. It’s in my car. Wait here a moment.” He strode rapidly out of the front doors.
Ethan checked out the table in the foyer where mail sat in three neat stacks. One stack had a lot, the others not much at all. Ethan couldn’t help reading the names on the envelopes. As his gaze traveled over the addresses, someone clattered down the polished hardwood stairs.
Ethan turned to the footsteps.
A young man glanced up from watching where his feet fell. His blue eyes locked with Ethan’s stare.
Ethan gazed at him, and his stomach lurched. His heart pounded. Not one word would form in his mind other than, wow.
The young man smiled, approaching the table. “Hi. I’m collecting my snail mail—yeah, not much as usual.”
Through a daze of attraction, Ethan watched the man pick up the two envelopes in his stack. He looked the young man up and down, taking in his hard body and fashionably cut dark hair. He held back a sigh of appreciation as the man turned to him.
“Are you the new tenant?” He waved a hand at the apartment door.
His low voice traveled over Ethan like a glaze of melting honey. Ethan stared at the man’s handsome face. He is gorgeous. About my age, too. “I haven’t taken the place yet, just…just viewed it.”
The young man moved closer. “You should take it. There aren’t many places as good, big, and with a garden this close to the city.” He held out his hand. “Luke Kirby. I live on the third floor, but that’s my patch of garden next to yours, if you take the place. It might seem odd to have to trundle down the stairs to sit in the sun with my coffee, but I’ve grown used to it.” His eyes sparkled at Ethan. He held Ethan’s gaze as he talked.
Butterflies filled Ethan’s stomach. He couldn’t stop his heart hammering and wondered if he could actually speak, meeting Luke had such an effect on him. “Ethan Goss.” He shook Luke’s hand. What he felt like doing was pulling the guy close and kissing those perfect lips that moved again.
“Pleased to meet you.” Luke held on to Ethan’s hand. His eyes held something unspoken.
A wave of longing rose through Ethan. His loneliness and need for sex put an ache in his stomach, replacing the butterflies. He glanced down at the strong hand gripping his, wondering if he could hold on a little longer, despite how weird that might be. Better not, that’s kinda creepy. All the same, it wasn’t Ethan who abandoned the handshake.
Luke let go but trailed his fingertips along Ethan’s palm as he withdrew his hand.
With his skin tingling from the touch, Ethan gazed into Luke’s blue eyes and knew. He’s gay. He somehow knows I am, too—probably the way I’m ogling him. He’s interested in me. Thank you, god. Ethan flashed his eyes at Luke with a flirtatious expression he usually reserved for cute guys he met in the gay bar.

a man on a mission ‘His to Protect’ #gay #shifter #series @MaiaDylanAuthor @evernightpub

Hey folks! Today I’m happy to introduce you to Maia Dylan and her story His to Protect!

~ * ~ BIO ~ * ~

Mother, wife, author, and all around crazy…

I write the kind of books that I love to read. Love stories between strong men and their independent soulmates. Usually, their path to Happily Ever After is a bumpy one, but there is always a Happy Ever After.

In the world’s I create there is someone (or two, or three) for everyone! Love comes in many forms and I believe it is all beautiful and should be celebrated!

I live, love and write in New Zealand, married to my husband of fifteen years with two beautiful children who I truly believe were sent as a blessing, but sometimes to try my patience, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Kaea Hemopo was a man on a mission. He planned to kill the bastard who killed his grandmother, and nothing was going to stop him. He had the man lined up in his sights, his finger on the trigger, and was prepared to die to get it done, but then Kaea found out that he was following the wrong man.

Xavier Mulligan had been stalking his own prey the night he met his mate. He’d been shocked to discover that Kaea was not only there to kill him, but thought he was the asshole who’d murdered his own father. Xavier would just have to make his mate see him for what he was, and accept his very nature. How hard could that be?

Can Kaea and Xavier find a way to work together to avenge those who were taken from them, and retrieve that which was stolen from Kaea’s family, or will Xavier’s need for control be the one thing that could tear them both apart?

Warning: M/M, anal penetration, erotic romance, paranormal, shape-shifter

~ * ~ EXCERPT ~ * ~

Kaea moved a little beneath him, and Xavier had to bite back a groan as his hips nestled a little closer to his.

“Do you—wait, am I naked?” Kaea asked incredulously, and Xavier couldn’t hold back a grin.

“That you are, my lovely. You were damp and dirty from being out in the forest and trying to kill me. I couldn’t very well pop you into bed like that, now could I?”

Kaea frowned as he leaned slightly to the side and looked at Xavier lying on top of him. “And you’re naked because…”

“I was in the shower.” Xavier shrugged. “Again, not somewhere where clothes are necessarily all that helpful. I came out of the bathroom when you woke up. Didn’t have time to go throw any clothes on.”

Kaea nodded, and a delicious red heat swept over the dark skin of his cheeks. “That makes sense, but you could let me go, get up and throw some clothes on now that I no longer want to hurt you, right?”

“But I like it where I am. Do I gotta?” Xavier had never pouted in his life, but he tried in this moment just to have fun with his mate.

Kaea’s laughter was quick and genuine, and had Xavier’s heart doing strange somersaults inside him. “Yes, you do. Come on, it’s very distracting having you lying on top of me.”

Xavier grinned, and knew it was just as wicked as he felt. “I love that you find me distracting, love, because the feeling is most definitely mutual.” Kaea’s eyes darkened, and Xavier knew he liked that particular revelation. “But, you’re right. I’m hungry, and healing this gunshot wound I seemed to have acquired recently has taken a lot of energy.”

Xavier pushed up from the bed, and grinned when he watched Kaea’s gaze wander down his abdomen, but shot back to the puckered scar of the wound on his shoulder. “Crap. Did I apologize for shooting you?”

Xavier resettled the towel around his hips. “No, you did not, and that was very remiss of you. I’ll expect you to make that up to me very soon. Repeatedly.”

Kaea’s soft laughter followed him as he stepped toward the back of the room where he’d put his bag. He grabbed a pair of sweats and pulled them on under the towel, then dropped it to the floor. He turned back toward the bed and laughed himself when he saw Kaea up on his elbows as if to get a better view.

“See something you might like, love?”

Kaea grinned at him, and Xavier could have sworn he felt his heart stutter in his chest. “Maybe, but I’m not a man who gives all his secrets away when he’s just met a man. I prefer a slow build up to a quick flash that’s over too damn soon.” Xavier scowled. “What’s put that look on your face?”

“I don’t like to think of you with other men.” Xavier heard the possessiveness in his own tone, but wouldn’t apologize for it. He was a dominant Alpha bear, and one who did not play well with others. Kaea needed to know and understand that. “I don’t share. You’re mine.”

Kaea arched a sardonic brow in his direction, and it irritated and aroused him at the same time. “Yours?” Xavier could practically feel the temperature in the room fall. “I don’t remember ever being asked if I’d be yours, or even if I wanted you. You presume too much.”

Xavier growled, his anger rising within him. “It’s not a presumption when I could feel your fucking arousal just as sure as you could feel mine, Kaea.”

a sweet but sexy Christmas treat ‘Snowflake Wine’ #contemporary #gay #romance @ElodieParkes


From Elodie
The story is contemporary gay romance with an edge of fantasy, especially written as a sweet but sexy Christmas treat.
Jamie Snow and Nathan Bloom, my characters are as usual, dear to me.
Jamie has battled all his life with his strange, fantastic gift. His is the character that brings the element of fantasy to the story. The inspiration behind the creation of this character came, weirdly enough, in the summer, when I visited a ruined abbey. In the grounds were flowering shrubs that I’d never encountered before. From a distance, the flowers looked like frost, and as I drew close, into my mind came the idea of Jamie, a sprite who loves cold, ice, frost, and to comfort himself in the warm weather, he decorated the shrubs with frost flowers.
Nathan Bloom is the perfect partner for Jamie—gorgeous, calm, loving and open. He’s looking for love. He’s onto Jamie’s gifts long before he lets Jamie know it. This is a love story—romantic, sexy, hopeful.
Blurb
Hunky Nathan Bloom works late for the company putting up the town Christmas lights and decorations.
Gorgeous, enigmatic, Jamie Snow works late forecasting the weather from his desk in the meteorology office.
Nathan sighs over the prospect of a holiday season with no one to love.
Jamie wonders if he’ll ever find a man to love who will accept his mysterious origins and talents.
One cold night, as Nathan finishes hoisting the wreath lights up the building where Jamie works, they meet.
The brilliant festive lights aren’t the only things to sparkle as the two men connect on a deep level.
Be delighted by a delicious, contemporary, gay romance with an edge of fantasy this season.
Sometimes being different is awesome.

Read a teaser:
Jamie Snow sat alongside Nathan. He glanced across at the man who stirred his frosty heart. He’s so attractive. Jamie hadn’t loved in a long time. He felt more than ready for it—longed for it on lonely nights. He wasn’t about to give up on the chance that this man might want a lover, that he was gay wasn’t in question. No straight guy looked the way he had at another man.
“My name’s Jamie, Jamie Snow.” He softened his voice as he spoke. The man beside him inspired tenderness and he felt a little prick of guilt. Using the weather to flirt with him had been inspired but maybe a little naughty.
Nathan drove the truck into a wide car lot that Jamie hadn’t known existed behind the furniture store on the end of the main street. “Here we are. The store allows us to leave the bigger rigs here every year. Jamie Snow—that’s an interesting name for a meteorologist—mine’s Nathan Bloom.”
Jamie’s smile infused his tone. “Yes. People tease me sometimes at work, they’ll know we’ve forecast it and as I walk by they’ll say, ‘here comes the snow,’ but I don’t mind. I like this name.”
“You’ve had others?” Nathan asked with a laugh.
Jamie didn’t want to reply. He waited. I won’t be lying to this lovely guy if I don’t answer.
Nathan turned off the truck engine and twisted to talk to Jamie. “It’s a cool name. Where do you live?”
It appeared he’d forgotten his question.
Happiness trickled into Jamie’s soul that the attractive man beside him liked his name, and used the word, cool. Eagerly, Jamie told Nathan his address on the outskirts of the town.
Nathan grinned, his eyes reflecting Jamie’s emotion. “I know it well. I live a couple of streets south from there.”
