Summer Lovin' LGBTQ Showcase: Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of the Summer Lovin' LGBTQ Showcase

I would like to thank the 20 authors who signed up for the showcase.  Check out each of their features to see what they have donated to the Gift Basket!


FRET
by Sandrine Gasq-Dion
a Rocker meets Military Romance MM

This book has been re-edited. This book contains homosexual relations and crude language. A sneak peek at book 2 follows the ending!

Former Navy SEAL Axel Blaze lives a solitary life. He doesn't do emotions, and he doesn't do babysitting. Used to being on his own, his job consists of Wetwork (a charming term coined by the KGB) for his former Master Chief, Mac. When an out-of-the-ordinary job lands on his doorstep, Axel heads down a path that includes a famous heavy metal rock band and one quiet, vulnerable, guitar-shredding virtuoso named Gareth Wolf.

Gareth Wolf's life changed in an instant when a car he was a passenger in crashed, hurting his brother's best friend and the band's lead guitarist. They created the band, Skull Blasters, as kids. Gareth had always been happy in the background, playing roadie. With the lead guitarist's injury, Gareth is suddenly thrust into the limelight and into a frenzied life he never imagined for himself. Finally fed up with living a lie, Gareth comes out as gay in a newspaper interview and finds himself in the bulls-eye of a crazed stalker. Somebody wants Gareth hurt - or worse - and Mac has been hired to be sure that doesn't happen. Babysitting duty is NOT Axel's strong suit, but Mac won't be budged.

Enter Axel Blaze.

Against his better judgment, the big man takes the job to protect the shy musician. The more time he spends with Gareth Wolf, the more he admires the man. Where's a simple assassination when you need one? The situation becomes more volatile for each man as the attempts on Gareth escalate just as Axel finds himself falling for the quiet lead guitarist.

Strong, funny, smart-ass -- and kinda sweet Axel is everything Gareth has ever wanted in a man. Too bad he's off limits. As the stalker grows bolder, Gareth and Axel move closer emotionally - but is it too late? All Axel knows is that they don't stand a chance if he can't find the maniac trying to kill the man he's come to care about. A lot.
Everyone knows that relationships that begin in pressured or volatile situations eventually fizzle out.
Or do they?




Sandrine Gasq-Dion is giving away a 3 signed books of the series along with key chains, pens and T shirt! (1 set to 3 different winners)

About the Author
A.M. Arthur was born and raised in the same kind of small town that she likes to write about, a stone's throw from both beach resorts and generational farmland. She's been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long, in a losing battle to make the fictional voices stop. She credits an early fascination with male friendships (bromance hadn't been coined yet back then) with her later discovery of and subsequent love affair with m/m romance stories. A.M. Arthur's work is available from Samhain Publishing, Carina Press, Dreamspinner Press, and SMP Swerve.

When not exorcising the voices in her head, she toils away in a retail job that tests her patience and gives her lots of story fodder. She can also be found in her kitchen, pretending she's an amateur chef and trying to not poison herself or others with her cuisine experiments.

Stone McKie has come back to the Black Hills, the only place he’s ever felt at home. He never expected to find a mate waiting, or that the creative omega would be terrified of him.

When a threat from Josh’s past catches up to him, he has to turn to the one man who scares him for protection. Can Josh get past his fears and accept the love he desperately craves?

Kayleigh Malcolm is giving away an ebook copy of Craving His Love

About the Author
Best selling author Kayleigh Malcom (and her alter ego Corinne Davies) is a firm believer that all love is beautiful and everyone deserves a Happily Ever After....well except for those involved with cancelling Firefly. She's still holding a grudge over that one.

She first put pen to paper in an attempt to write a love story between her and her favourite rock singer of the time. It was filled with all the angst that only a teenager can come up with and, of course, an incredible wardrobe. Years later, during the wee hours of the morning, when her first daughter insisted on waking up, she discovered online RPGs and her love of writing emerged again.After many encouraging words from fellow writers, she decided to try her hand at developing her own stories, learning it takes more than mind blowing sex and a happily ever after to make a great story

By day, she is a full-time wife, mother, and product consultant. At night, she avoids such mundane tasks as housework and laundry by creating her own worlds where fantasy and mythology comes to life. Worlds in which you are just as likely to be living next door to an ancient Deity as finding your soul mate in steam powered flying machine. Sticking with one genre is a talent she hasn't achieved yet and can be found creating worlds as normal as our own or as fantastic as her dreams. Her characters have to face real life challenges, as many of us do, but love always finds a way to conquer all.

A social media junkie, she can be found haunting many different sites and loves to hear from her readers.

 A Heart's Desire
by Kris Michaels
a Detective Romance MM

Agent McKenzie is nobody’s ‘yes’ boy and has the letters of reprimand to prove it.

He smells the stink of political maneuvering in this case and he can see the handwriting on the wall. Hell, the words are three feet high and written in crayon. Someone in his own agency wants a target on Liam Mercier’s back but McKenzie would be damned if he’d put one there. The damaged man currently in his custody needs his protection, not manipulation. That’s why he’d agreed to use a safe house that was off the grid. Throwing away his rarely used FBI procedure book had nothing to do with the protective urges he felt around Liam. Nope, not a damn thing to do with heavy doses of desire, or spikes of lust. He was just doing his job, after all, he has a killer to catch and a victim to keep alive. Protecting his best bet of taking that sick bastard down was his civic duty.

Forced to face the nightmares of his past or lose his pension, Liam Mercier did the only thing he could do. He walked back into his personal hell. The man assigned to protect him is everything Liam wanted and needed—four years ago. Leaving the small island of sanity he’d been existing on could cost him everything. But being hunted by a genius, sadistic killer without the protection of the sexy, intense, agent was a guaranteed death sentence. Fate had dictated Liam’s course four years ago. The only thing he questioned was when his killer going to finish his work.


Warning: This is a M/M detective romance with same sex relationships that contains potential triggers to those sensitive to sexual assault.

Praise for The Undercover Rock Star

“They have an incredibly, incredibly intense off-the-charts chemistry. Phew! Two alpha males wrestling for the upper hand. Steamy. Hot. Passionate. Wow.”

“The chemistry between these two leaps off the page. The fight for dominance was freaking HELLA HOT! I need more Cam and Brandon in my world! “

“Cameron and Brandon have insane chemistry, together they’re explosive!”

“Jenna's flawless writing style can be found in this M/M Romance.”

“Cameron and Brandon were so different in just about everything, but they fit so well together.” - Bayou Book Junkie

“The chemistry between Cam and Brandon can be felt through the pages. It was instant and it was intense.”

“There is no other author known to me who describes concerts so powerful, so vivid, that you get the feeling you are truly listening to the band’s – in this case Bulletproof’s – music.”





Excerpt

He tugged Cam’s shirt over his head and threw it to the floor, revealing a well-defined chest and lean torso. Cam responded by pulling Brandon’s shorts down so they fell to his ankles. It was another act of defiance, and he met Cam’s stare with an erotic smile. “Are you going to try to take the upper hand all night, Mr. Douglas?”

Cam flattened Brandon against the wall and pressed his full weight against him. “I always take the upper hand.”

A hot jolt of electricity soared through Brandon’s body. He wasn’t used to such aggression, and it revved his testosterone level into high gear. He stepped out of his shorts, which were still pooled around his ankles, and spun Cam around so their positions were reversed and pinned Cam’s hands above his head. “We may just have to fight it out for the top.”

“I’m always on top.” There was playful defiance in Cam’s eyes. “Do you think you can make me submit?”

Brandon’s blood pumped harder in his chest. His previous lovers were entirely too easy to dominate.
