Betting On Love - PRINT

I am not sure if I already said so, but Betting On Love is now out in PRINT!
Accepting a bet to seduce any guy his friend chooses puts Zach McKinney in the path of Len Marshall. Smitten immediately, Zach forgets about the bet and falls in love until Len's past catches up with them, putting them both in danger.
For Len Marshall, meeting Zach was akin to destiny. It not only brought love into his life, but made him feel like he has a home. The new relationship, though, is overshadowed by a past blocked from Len's memory and by individuals who want to make sure those memories stay buried. Can love built on shadows pass the test of time? Or will their happiness be destroyed again by men who took Len's life away years ago?

FB Chat over at Silver Publishing

I will be over on the Silver facebook site at around 3 pm UK time for a few hours. Stop by if you would like to chat! HERE.
And Over The Moon, the second book in the Watchtower Series is also out today. HERE.

Over The Moon takes Aidan and King James on a journey not only to distance shores, but off planet, opening up a whole new world for them with new, unimaginable dangers threatening not only their home but their entire world.
When Aidan discovered the ancient Watchtower, his discovery ignited a race against time to have them restored before the first tower's dire warnings come true. There is an enemy lurking in the distant shadows, and only the long forgotten protection of the towers can save them all.
But will he be able to unravel the mystery in time? Will the first meeting between King James and Prince Alric go off without a hitch, or will they also have to deal with strife on their home shores?
And why does Aidan keep stumbling over moon references? The moon is nothing but a distant rock in the sky. Surely there are no means of getting there, right?

Manga and Romance Blog Hop


I've joined the Manga and Romance blog hop. We are here to talk about romance and YAOI.

Hayley B James has a great post explaining what YAOI is. You can find this brilliant post HERE.

Personally, joined up through the male/male romance side of things. I might've heard about Manga and YAOI when I was a teenager but it never went further than being aware it existed. Back then, to my shame, I wasn't all that interested in romance of any kind.

What draws you to romance in general? And to male/male romance? To YAOI? What did you start out with and why?

There are so many different reasons why people get involved, why people start reading certain books...and I am always curious to figure out the reason behind it.

So what's your take on romance and YAOI? Let's talk about this and get to know one another!

There's also an extra incentive to start commenting/talking about it. For every comment entered, you will be entered into a GRAND PRICE DRAW. One comment per blog will be considered and please remember to clearly leave your E-mail address so that you can be contacted. You can find the list of participating authors/blogs HERE.

So go forth an blog!

Now, to spice things up, I will also do a little challenge of my own. If you comment below (with the same rules: one comment - one entry and please leave your E-mail address), you will be entered into a draw. The lucky winner will be able to choose between the E-books I currently have up for sale. You can also pick one of the upcoming books but then, of course, you'd have to wait until they are released.

Also, if any YAOI author wants to do a book swap, let me know! I haven't actually read much of YAOI so I am up for a new experience!

Review for Over The Rainbow

Over The Rainbow has a review!

Don Bradshaw from heartsonfirereviews (HERE) has kindly review my book. He gave it 5 HEARTS. The review is currently only on my goodreads page so the link to the review will lead there. Once it is posted on the heartsonfirereviews website, I will post this link too. Goodreads links is HERE.

And here is the review:

What an excellent beginning to what I'm hoping will be a great fantasy series. Great world building and a well written, captivating story. Aidan grew up fairly sheltered living with his semi-kooky mother who named him after a powerful sorcerer. He was happily working at a small tavern and living with a sorcerer friend when all of a sudden a cat starts talking to him. The cat, Belze, keeps telling Aidan that he needs to get laid which was no news to him. That night after work Aidan does get his itch scratched and also finds out that according to prophecy that he is indeed the long lost sorcerer but is a warlock in this incarnation. The prophecy also states that King James, Aidan's trick, can only bring prosperity and unity to the lands if Aidan is by his side. Totally blown away by all this, Aidan begins his journey to the capital with James and Belze by his side. This story is totally driven by the character's personalities and interactions. Ms May did a wonderful job of creating and fleshing out all of the characters. Belze is funny with her cheeky attitude as Aidan's familiar. The story moved along very smoothly and kept my interest until the very last page. Watching Aidan slowly grow into his powers and love for King James was most of the story. The ending left me waiting hungrily for the next installment of this promising new series. I recommend this fun read to anyone who enjoys a good escape fantasy.

Over The Rainbow - RELEASED!

Over The Rainbow has been released!

Missing: Prophesized Warlock to the King. Taking a cat's dare to have sex sets in motion a chain of events which will lead Aidan and James further away from home than they could've ever imagined.

Aidan never knew he could do magic until a cat dared him to have sex. His life must be truly tragic, if even felines knew he was too pathetic to find someone to share his bed. Wanting to prove the talking cat wrong, he takes the first offer he can find, sleeping with a blond stranger. It was just his luck that the stranger turns out to be King James, ruler of several kingdoms. To make matters worse, James insists he is the foretold warlock who's destined to stand by his side, setting in motion a chain of events which will lead both Aidan and James further away from home than they could’ve ever imagined.

Purchase link is HERE.
