The Holiday Home Hotel Blog Tour

The Holiday Home Hotel
by Lou Sylvre
Genre: M/M Supernatural Romance
Daren Novak and Gunny Schuler have known each other since freshmen days at
the University of Washington, where they’d started a romance Daren
assumed would last. But at the start of winter break, Gunny bowed to
the dictates of his lifelong religion and his overbearing father and
left UW never to return.
After a failed marriage, Gunny built a quiet life embracing his gay
identity, and left his North Dakota home, his marriage, and his
father’s business for a forestry and teaching career in Oregon.
Meanwhile, Daren has built up his own life around managing a unique
holiday venue, the Holiday Home Hotel, and performing for the guests
in drag as “Dare.”
A decade has passed since they last saw each other, but now winter’s
harsh weather brings them face to face—helped along by a minor
goddess and powerful forest spirit. Too much hurt might lie between
them now to fix things, but interfering supernatural beings are
determined to force them to try.
Lou Sylvre loves romance with all its ups and downs, and she likes to
conjure it into books. The sweethearts on her pages are men
who end up loving each other, and sometimes saving each
other from unspeakable danger. It’s all pretty crazy and very sexy.
As if you’d want to know more, she’ll happily tell you that she is
a proudly bisexual woman, a mother, grandmother, lover of languages,
and cat-herder. She works closely with lead cat and writing
assistant, the (male) Queen of Budapest, Boudreau St. Clair. She is
the author of the six well-loved books of the Vasquez and James
Series and holiday favorites,
Falling Snow on Snow
and
The Holiday Home Hotel.
She teamed up with Kiwi author Anne Barwell to write
Sunset
at Pencarrow
, an adventurous tale of New Zealand romance.

New Release: Christmas Magic by Shea Balik

SB Christmas Magic4

Christmas Magic

Believe Book 2

By Shea Balik

Release Date: December 14, 2018

TAGS: #Gay #Holiday #Contemporary #Romance #LGBT #MM

 

BLURB

Do you believe in the magic of Christmas? Tim Richards didn’t, so why had he thought he could make a Christmas wish and have it come true?

Much to his surprise, he met the man of his dreams when Nick Snow walked into his world and turned it upside down. The life he had always hated was becoming something from a dream and more than anything he could have ever possibly imagined. For Tim, to believe childhood fantasies could come true, was impossible.

Nick Snow tended to only think about work. That was, until he met Tim. He’d never imagined anyone would ever come between him and his career. Now he knew that there was so much more to life than a job.

Can Nick show Tim that Christmas Magic is real?

Warning: This book contains frivolity, laughter, and a lot of sex. Nothing is off the table when these two figure out if their reality is nothing more than fantasy, or if their fantasies can become reality, with faith in a little Christmas Magic.

Magic Teaser 2

Excerpt

Between Nick’s heart stopping kiss and his teasing tone when he suggested they go play, Tim couldn’t help the excitement that built within him.  He was sure this was exactly how it would feel as a kid on Christmas morning.  Well, for those who actually received presents, anyway.

Giddy, he didn’t even bother to stop the laughter that spilled out as they started running once they’d entered the park. The sun was shining, the breeze blowing just enough on his cheek, and the sounds of kids playing only increased the joy that welled up within him, until Tim was sure he was floating across a grassy area of the park.

Near a picnic table, Nick dropped the two bags he’d been carrying and turned to pulled Tim into his arms, spinning them both around.  It should have been stupid and childish, but Tim had never felt freer than he did in that moment.

He didn’t even care who was watching them, which considering it was a beautiful Sunday day, there were tons of people milling about.  And when Nick kissed him, Tim threw his arms around Nick’s neck and kissed him back for all he was worth.

He was too happy to be self-conscious.  Not that he typically was anyway, but then again, he’d never had anyone in his life who’d wanted to show affection in public.  It was a first for Tim and he was discovering he enjoyed being with Nick and not wondering if anyone was paying attention to them.  No.  Not giving a damn if anyone was watching.

This was Tim’s life and if people didn’t like it, they could leave.

“I can’t believe I’m finally getting to do this with you,” Nick said a little breathlessly from the kiss.  “I’ve been planning it for over a month, but something always seems to get in the way.”

That was it.  Tim was sure his heart was melting as it seemed to constantly do around Nick.  The man was the most romantic and sweetest person Tim had ever known.

Curious but also on cloud nine as Nick continued to hold him close, Tim smiled up at the man he was beginning to love.  “Are you finally going to tell me why you dragged me here?” he teased.

Nick grinned at him but instead of telling him, he let Tim go and reached for the black tote that he’d gotten from Klassic Toys.  With a flourish that would put any magician to shame, Nick unzipped the bag and pulled out two plastic wrapped…

Tim gasped.  His gaze going from those packages to Nick’s beautiful brown eyes.  “Are those…?

He hadn’t believed Nick’s grin could get any bigger, but it did as he nodded enthusiastically.  “Yep,” he said with a self-satisfied tone. “Two kites.”

Tears stung Tim’s eyes as his gaze returned to the brightly colored kites in the clear packaging.  “You got me kites?”  There were no words.  No way for Tim to ever express…

“I love you,” he blurted out without thinking.  The moment the words left his mouth, Tim wanted them back, except… he didn’t.  Not really.  It was just that he hadn’t meant to say them so soon, but now that he did, he knew he wasn’t just starting to fall in love with this unbelievably kind and generous man, he was head over heels in love with him.

Arms once more encircled his waist as lips pressed against his in a fierce, demanding kiss that had Tim panting when Nick pulled back.  Those sweet brown eyes stared down at him with so much damn love, Tim knew what Nick was going to say before he said it.

“I love you, too.  More than I ever thought it possible to love another person.”  Then Nick was grinning again.  “Now, let’s go fly a kite.”

Bait
Dangerous
Distractions Book 2
by
Samantha Keith
Genre:
Romantic Suspense
There
are good guys, and then there are highly trained good guys—the kind
who make the world a safer, sexier place . . .

 

 

Former
military and ex-FBI agent Ethan Worth is searching for a new way to
serve and protect. On a break in Beaufort, North Carolina, he just
may have found it. It starts with saving a tipsy damsel in distress
from a shady troublemaker. But it ends with the surprisingly sober
beauty outraged by his rescue. That’s all Ethan needs for his
expert instincts to kick into high gear . . .

 

Riley
Jones is back in Beaufort for one reason only: to find her missing
best friend, Hanna. If that means using herself as bait for the kind
of guy who’d prey on a vulnerable young woman, so be it. She
doesn’t need a rugged knight in shining armor like Ethan
distracting her, and she doesn’t want his help. But it turns out
she needs it. And together, as the heat between them rises, so does
the danger. Until both their lives are on the line . . .
Abducted
The
Dangerous Distractions #1
In
a high-stakes world of privilege, betrayal, and the sexy thrill of
the unknown, you never know where a dangerous distraction will lead .
. .
Cal
Hart walks a blurred line of honor. The rock-hard former Marine has
his lethal skills at the service of the highest bidder. Until a
contract comes in to kill Lana Vanderpoel, the sultry, charismatic
heiress and billionaire’s daughter. She’s way too sexy to end up
at the wrong end of a silencer. So Cal takes the job—and starts
planning how to get Lana to safety while he unearths who’s behind
the threat . . .
Lana
only knows she’s been kidnapped—and she’ll fight tooth and nail
against whoever has snatched her from her life. Her stern-faced
captor sends a tremor of ice through her veins, yet a thrill lies
beneath her unease. He’s dark and dangerous, his body ripped,
honed, and capable. But lust isn’t the same as trust—and whether
or not she can believe what Cal’s telling her, there’s at least
one person close to Lana who wants her dead . . .

ADULT EXCERPT:

I thought to be a good host and offer a drink when we walked into my apartment, but the second I shut the door behind us, Jason spun me and lifted me against it. My legs wound around his hips, settling my pussy against his stiff cock. He crushed his lips against mine, tongue swooping in to fuck my mouth.

I gave in without thought, ignoring the niggle of fear the moment of submission to his leading brought. Never one to relinquish control to a man, I decided to let Jason lead.

For a time.

His hands grasped my ass and rubbed me against his hard length, drawing a whimper from me. Heaving for breath, he backed away from my greedy lips. “I didn’t even think to hope…please tell me you have protection.”

“I do. Come on.” I wriggled to get down and pulled him by his shirt down the hall. Switching on the light of my tiny bedroom, I eyed my bed and its half-made state. For the first time in years, the desire to lay down, spread my legs, and let a man have his way with me swept through my body.

A chill tightened my chest. I turned, placing my palm on Jason’s hard abs. “We do this my way,” I said, my gaze on his luscious mouth.

“Whatever you say, Samantha.” His low tone, rumbly and sexy as hell, pebbled my nipples.

“Strip.” Arms crossed to hide my shaking hands, I stepped back, ready to salivate.

He pulled off his shirt, revealing the full sleeve of tatts on his left arm wrapped around his pec. The silver nipple ring glinted in the overhead light.

While I preferred the dark for fucking, I wanted to see Jason—enjoy the tease of seeing his Zeus-like body and waiting to touch every damn inch.

He flicked the snap of his jeans and tugged them down. His cock sprang free and bounced against his ridiculously ripped abs.

I ran my tongue across my top lip as need swept through my tingling limbs. “You are so fucking hot.”

A kick sent his shoes flying, and the denim followed. Jason Hunter, a once skinny puke, stood naked, glorious, tanned, and sexy as shit in my bedroom.

“On the bed,” I said, my voice breathless.

He obeyed, stretched out, arms behind his head. Cocky son-of-a-bitch smirked, his dimple ringing my clit’s bell. I filled my eyes with the hunk of male spread across my comforter. Bulging calves, muscular thighs…my gaze caught on his massive erection. Two steps closer revealed a bead of pre-cum glistening on its tip.

A low moan shuddered through me, and I climbed atop him, fully clothed to lick him clean.

His hips rose, a rumbling groan escaping his lips.

Grasping his hard cock in one hand and tight balls in the other, I bent down again and nibbled, stroked, and squeezed. The scent of cinnamon clung to his skin, but he tasted of salt and man musk.

“Fuck.” Jason grabbed hold of my head and yanked me up to capture my mouth.

He swept his tongue in with languid thrusts, bringing a moan to my lips—and the beginnings of emotions to my chest.

A warning bell gonged like a mother fucker between my ears.

The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves thirty-two-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.

Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O’Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.

But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.
