A remote farmhouse in Cornwall seems the perfect place for Ash to settle into his recently altered status. Starting a new life there with Sam—the shifter he can’t stay away from—should be easy this far from London where they faced so much danger. So why does adjusting seem impossible?

Sam has issues of his own. He has to get used to his human form again after living the last eight years as a wolf. It’s hard when human worries weigh so heavily on his shoulders. Life is much more straightforward from a wolf’s perspective, until Ash needs his human support.

Ash’s problem is simple: he’s fearful of shifting fully. How can he believe he won’t hurt Sam when his genes were altered to create a killer? Despite repeated reassurance, his anger and resentment increase. Only one thing is certain: if Ash can’t learn to trust himself soon, he’s in danger of proving himself right.

Delivered Fast
 (Portland Heat, Book 3) 
by Annabeth Albert

 Length: 45,000 words 
Genres: Gay (M/M), Contemporary, Romance, Erotica
Portland, Oregon, aka Hotlandia, where the coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries are ready to serve everything piping hot, fresh, and ready to go—like the hard-working, hard-bodied men behind the counters—with no reservations…

Sure, Chris O’Neal has problems. His restaurant is still co-owned by his ex. His flannel-and-tattoos style is making him accidentally trendy. He can’t remember the last time he went out and had fun. But he’s not lonely, he’s driven. And the hot bakery delivery boy is not his problem, no matter how sweet his buns. 

Chris is old enough to know Lance Degrassi’s sculpted good looks and clever double entendres spell nothing but trouble. Lance is still in college—he should be hitting the clubs and the books, chasing guys his own age, not pursuing some gruff motorcycle-riding workaholic. Especially when he’ll be leaving for grad school in a few months. But Lance keeps hanging around, lending a hand, charming Chris to distraction. Maybe some steaming hot no-strings indulgence won’t hurt. 

Then again, maybe it will…

Alex Reyes is a retired professional soccer player turned West Hollywood business owner with an insatiable lust for life. He loves his family, friends, and work. But there’s one life challenge left to accomplish: coming out publicly. Respect for traditional Latino values has kept him in the closet, but Alex begins to think he and his new neighbor might help one another combat their fears. As Alex and Nate forge a strong friendship, they soon realize facing their personal demons will take more courage than either man bargained. The reward is immeasurable… if the timing is right.

Love Spell by Mia Kerick: #GuestPost #Review #Giveaway @MiaKerick

Cover Artist: Louis C. Harris
Love Spell
by Mia Kerick

Release Date: June 1, 2015
Length: 44,300 words
Genres: Gay Fiction, Contemporary, Young Adult, Romance
Strutting his stuff on the catwalk in black patent leather pumps and a snug orange tuxedo as this year’s Miss (ter) Harvest Moon feels so very right to Chance César, and yet he knows it should feel so very wrong. 

As far back as he can remember, Chance has been “caught between genders.” (It’s quite a touchy subject; so don’t ask him about it.) However, he does not question his sexual orientation. Chance has no doubt about his gayness—he is very much out of the closet at his rural New Hampshire high school, where the other students avoid the kid they refer to as “girl-boy.”

But at the local Harvest Moon Festival, when Chance, the Pumpkin Pageant Queen, meets Jasper Donahue, the Pumpkin Carving King, sparks fly. So Chance sets out, with the help of his BFF, Emily, to make “Jazz” Donahue his man. 

An article in an online women’s magazine, Ten Scientifically Proven Ways to Make a Man Fall in Love with You (with a bonus love spell thrown in for good measure), becomes the basis of their strategy to capture Jazz’s heart. 

Quirky, comical, definitely flamboyant, and with an inner core of poignancy, Love Spell celebrates the diversity of a gender-fluid teen.

Gay for Pay by TM Smith: #CoverReveal #Excerpt @ttcbooksandmore

Gay for Pay
 an All Cocks story 
by TM Smith

 Anticipated Release: mid to late June 2015 
Genres: Gay (M/M), Contemporary, Romance
Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future. Captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama. His high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember Amanda by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right?

Linc Larson is All Cocks most requested, most versatile model. The openly bi-sexual gay porn star will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility charged industry. Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life though; it’s his inability to trust.

What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six foot two with Auburn hair, an exquisitely toned body and enough ink on his skin to put Crayola out of business, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes. It becomes painfully clear soon enough that Kris is straight and only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account.

Can a bi-sexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Christopher has built around himself and help Kris come to terms with the painful past he is hiding from.

Gay for Pay is a gay for you story about two men that will have to come to terms with the mistakes they made in their past if they want to stick around and have a chance at a future.

Just as Kyle’s starting to adjust to his fellow misfit squad mates, his new partner arrives. Tall, physically perfect, reserved, and claiming he has no broken psychic talents, Vikash Soren irritates Kyle in every way. But as much as he’d like to hate Vikash, Kyle finds himself oddly drawn to him, their non-abilities meshing in unexpected ways.

Now, if Kyle and Vikash can learn to work together, they just might be able to stop the mysterious killer who has been leaving mutilated bodies along the banks of the Schuylkill.

Release Date: June 24, 2015
 Genres: Gay (M/M), Romance, Paranormal, Mystery, Urban Fantasy 
Being a witch doesn’t mean one can beat the devil forever.

Jeffrey Overton, unemployed IT professional turned poker player, pushes his luck once too often and runs afoul of the host of an illegal card club. The man sent to escort Jeffrey to a “meeting” about his supernatural winning streak arrives at Jeffrey’s crappy North Portland apartment, lock-picking tools in hand and a charm to block Jeffrey’s magick.

Head muscle for said host, Mike Wells, is a Daisy from Daisyville. He isn’t a witch. What he lacks in magickal talent he makes up for in brawn, so he doesn’t expect the guy he’s after to overpower him. But once Mike renders Jeffrey helpless, he’d rather seduce him than bring him in.

Jeffrey and Michael ditch the “meeting” and end up hunting some of the same people they ran from, trying to get Jeffrey back into his own body. And that’s only part of the adventure. The pair travel halfway across the country on the quietest road trip in history and find missing people, empire-building witches, and maybe even the families they’d both thought lost to them.

Hop Against Homophobia Bi- and Transphobia: Who I Am #HAHBAT

Click logo to visit main hop page:
May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. 
I'm one of 120 participants from across the world who are standing up to say enough is enough. In honor of today I'm sharing part of my own journey of self discovery. To learn more, check out the website.

When The Rug Got Pulled Out From Underneath My Feet
(this is going to get ugly)
Society teaches us that everyone must fit into a box. Being box-less is against the laws of human nature. The bigger the box, the better off you are. God forbid you "pick" a small box, that's almost as bad as having no box at all. Two years ago I started to get sick, so sick that I lost the ability to do my job. I lost my box, the place that I fit. I almost lost my mind, and I wasn't sure why. No joke; six feet under was looking pretty darn good. 

Boxes Are For Packing, Not For People
 (my box is not as comfortable as I pretended it was
I've been spending a lot of time recently thinking about who I am, what's important to me, and how I want to define myself going forward. It all started about a month ago. I was reading Mia Kerick's upcoming release, Love Spell, and found this series of quotes from the main character, Chance César.

I used to let myself go there in my head. "There" being defined as the place in my mind that isn't sure which gender box I fit into, and is cool with that. Okay, so maybe the last time I went there I was a kid. Like, back before middle school was when I gave my brain the freedom to wonder. Since those days, though, I'd learned about the boxes - you have to be a boy or a girl, gay or straight, in the closet or out, masc or femme. Pick a box, Chance, any box... Just pick one, for the love of Elton John!

The think is, I'm what you might call, caught in the middle. Well, not completely caught, cuz I know for a fact that my body is male, and that I'm gay and, judging by my sweatshirt, I'm way far out of the closet. It's the rest of the gender stuff that wreaks havoc with my brain.

When I was a kid, I called myself a "pink boy." Other kids at school, even back then, called me a "girl-boy." Now, on the rare occasions I consider what has become such a touchy subject, I tell myself, "Chance, you're just a dude in the 'middle spaces'." But to spell it out, I'm caught between genders.

I Lied; It Started Much Longer Than A Month Ago
(the light bulb turns on in the attic of my mind)
I've never fit in, and always had a lot of really good reasons as to why that is. Yes, I'm a girl, but I grew up with brothers... 5 brothers, so being a girly girl just wasn't an option. I've got one friend who "gets" me, I'm luckier than most, so why should I tempt fate and ask for more? I wasn't paying attention when they passed out the gene that enables people to "fake it" in social settings. The box I'm most comfortable in, the one that fits, isn't who I am; it's what I do, but I'm okay with that. The list goes on, but you get the gist of it. I was lost and didn't even know it.

Most People Never Get The Chance To Redefine Themselves
(therapy is REALLY expensive considering they offer more questions than answers)
I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a heterosexual woman. I don't fit in. I've done so many things to change who I am on the outside, but my insides are still confused. I want the world to get off my back and let me be me. Stop judging me. Stop pressuring me to conform. Stop trying to force me into your shitty little boxes. Stop looking at me like I'm a circus monkey. Honestly, I've reached the point that I don't really care what I am anymore. I just want to be happy.

Happiness Starts On The Inside And Shines Outward 
(sticks and stones may break my bones but I won't let words hurt me anymore)
I've managed to learn a few things along the way. Despite what the world wants me to believe, it doesn't really matter what other people think. Honestly. Why? Because you can't depend on others for your happiness. Having the approval and acceptance of those around me isn't going to make me happy. Not if I'm not happy with myself. A life spent mired in someone else's definition of who I am is lonelier than one spent free of that burden and alone. Knowing this to be true doesn't make walking away from those who hurt me any easier. Turning the other cheek day after day after day, it gets easier with time, but is never easy. Finding the confidence to accept myself the way that I am, to leave those expectations behind and just be me, that makes me happy.

Let Go Of Fear And Raise Your Voice For Change
(that's what friends are for)
I've met a lot of amazing people along the way who have helped me be me. Find a stranger who is in need of a friend. Hold their hand. Show them love by accepting them for who they are. Let your light shine, be an example for others, be the kind of person who maks a difference one small step at a time. There will be good days and bad days, wins and losses; for every two steps I take forward, somewhere someone else is being forced to take one step back. That's not okay. It wasn't okay yesterday, it's not okay today and it isn't acceptable for tomorrow. Standing strong, working together as a community, sharing the burden; it takes courage and it's the best way to facilitate positive change. Love is love.
