Welcome A E Ryecart

Today’s guest is

A E Ryecart with

A Kiss Before Christmas and

Company for Christmas

A Kiss Before Christmas:

A Kiss Before Christmas: A snowy London love story

Christmas is looming and Jack De Lacy needs a solution to one hell of a fix.

Dumped by his boyfriend in favour of his best friend, Jack’s been busy bragging about the hot new man in his life.

A hot new man who doesn’t exist.

With an important function to attend where he’ll come face-to-face with his ex, Jack knows he’ll be a laughing stock when his boasts are exposed as nothing more than wishful thinking. He’s desperate but time, like his options, is running out.

Rory Kincaid is scared he won’t last another night sleeping rough on London’s frozen, snowbound streets. With all the homeless shelters full, Rory seeks refuge in the first empty doorway he stumbles across.

Finding Rory shivering in the sub-zero temperatures, Jack can no more send him away than kick a puppy out into the cold. A shower, shave and hot drink later, and the grubby street kid is transformed into a beautiful young man.

As the attraction between them grows, so does a plan that will get Jack out of the mess he’s in and give Rory a warm, safe home for Christmas. Sweet and adorable, Rory will make a great fake boyfriend for the festive season – the problem is, neither Jack nor Rory is sure where the make-believe ends and the truth begins.

Warning: this 37k novella contains a camp Christmas tree, a drag queen Christmas fairy called Doris, way too many jugs of eggnog, a closet posh boy, and the sweetest Kiss Before Christmas ever.

Available to buy on Amazon or read in KU.

Company for  Christmas:

Who says fairy tales are only make-believe?

Every night, Nathan works the street known as The Rack. Like every other rent boy, he dreams his Prince Charming will come and take him away to a better life.

Too bad Nathan’s stopped believing in fairy tales.

Max has everything except the one thing he craves: somebody to love, cherish, and protect.

Somebody to call his own.

When Nathan and Max’s worlds collide on the cold and grimy backstreet, little do they know that Christmas magic has already cast its spell.

Maybe fairy tales really can come true after all.

Available to buy on Amazon or read in KU.

Hello, I’m A E (or Ali as my readers know me). I write mm romance and gay fiction ranging from sweet and warm with all the fuzzies to gritty, hard-edged and challenging. Born and raised in London, I like to set my stories against the background of the big bad city. Much of the action takes place in around places I’ve lived, worked, or just spent time in – usually with a large glass of wine in hand it has to be said – but with a little artistic licence applied. I now live just outside London in a house that’s always untidy and with a husband who keeps me fueled with endless mugs coffee and, of course, glasses of wine.

Find me on my website at www.aeryecart.com where you can also sign up to my mailing list, and in return I’ll send you a free story as a big squishy thank you. I’ll also send you a monthly newsletter updating you on what I’m up to,what’s coming next, books I’ve read and recommend, and a whole lot more.

Welcome Annabeth Albert

Today we have 

Annabeth Albert and

Better Not Pout!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is better-not-pout-annabeth-albert.jpg

Hi everyone! Thank you so much to Lynn for having me here. I wanted to talk about one of my favorite parts of the holiday season: Santa. Now I just turned 40, but I still believe in Santa. Why? Because I cherish what Santa represents.  To me, Santa stands for the spirit of doing something for someone else without expecting thanks or recognition, and for trying to do those selfless acts of giving in a way that promotes the magic of the holidays.

I’ve loved being Santa for my own kids, both of whom now know the truth about Santa, which is a little sad for me, but to me, the power of Santa goes deeper than merely Christmas morning surprises. Santa is the mystery donor in who paid off all the layaway items at an inner-city Walmart. Santa is the giving trees all across the country, and the kind donors who choose to fulfill the wishes from those requests. Santa is the food pantries and soup kitchens serving up holiday meals. Santa is the secret packages left on doorsteps and mailboxes.

Santa is more than the magic of the season too—the mall Santas hearing endless wishes, the hard working parents and relatives working to make those wishes come true. It’s not always easy being Santa, especially if your own cheer is in short supply!

In my latest release, BETTER NOT POUT, I wanted to capture this spirit of Santa with a reluctant hero who isn’t sure he has any holiday magic of his own. He learns that Santa is so much more than the suit, and the transformation in him also opens his heart to truelove. His co-hero is the embodiment of everything good about the holidays, and his belief in holiday magic really is a big part of what transforms my grumpy hero from solider to Santa.

If you’re interested, check out BETTER NOT POUT:

One hard-nosed military police officer.

One overly enthusiastic elf.

One poorly timed snowstorm.


Is it a recipe for disaster? Or a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for holiday romance?

Teddy MacNally loves Christmas and everything that goes along with it. When he plays an elf for his charity’s events, he never expects to be paired with a Scrooge masquerading as Santa Claus. His new mission: make the holiday-hating soldier believe he was born to say ho-ho-ho.

Sergeant Major Nicholas Nowicki doesn’t do Santa, but he’s army to his blood. When his CO asks an unusual favor, Nick of course obliges. The elf to his Kris Kringle? Tempting. Too tempting—Nick’s only in town for another month, and Teddy’s too young, too cheerful and too nice fora one-night stand. 

The slow, sexy make-out sessions while Teddy and Nick are alone and snowbound, though, feel like anything but a quick hookup. As a stress-free holiday fling turns into Christmas all year round, Teddy can’t imagine his life without Nick. And Nick’s days on the base may be coming to a close, but he doesn’t plan on leaving anything, or anyone, behind.

This book is approximately 65,000 words

Welcome Lynn Michaels

Here’s eXtasybooks author Lynn Michaels with a Frostbite Christmas.

Guard your heart, or Jack Frost will freeze it.

Jack Frost is all about the freezing cold, and he not only wants to freeze the earth, but he also wants to freeze people’s hearts. When he sees two lovers kissing under the mistletoe, he vows to split them up. Teddy and his husband, Kirk, are still in love. Will they let a little frost come between them?

Lynn Michaels lives and writes in Tampa, Florida where the sun is hot and the Sangria is cold. When she’s not writing she’s kayaking, hanging with her husband, or reading by the pool. Lynn writes Male/Male romance because she believes everyone deserves a happy ending and the dynamics of male characters can be intriguing, vulnerable, and exciting. She has both contemporary and paranormal titles and has been writing since 2014. Her stories don’t follow any set guidelines or ideas, but come from her heart and contain love in many forms.

http://www.extasybooks.com/lynn-michaels/

Here’s a short excerpt:  

Lynn-logo1-small

Jack watched the two lovers kissing.It angered him. There he was slinging around a bit of wintry wonderland in a place that so desperately needed to chill out, and there they were heating it back up.

He reached out a hand and dipped some frost on the eaves above them. He took a breath and blew it out, directing it right at them. The cold didn’t deter them. The bigger one only pulled the smaller one in tighter.

That wouldn’t do.

Jack’s frigid heart seized a little. He wanted to see the lovers cold inside—wanted to freeze their hearts. He needed to do something about this. He stepped closer, examining them. He couldn’t find anything special there. How could they ignore the cold as if it didn’t bother them at all? They made it insignificant. Unimportant.

Curly brown hair fell along the edges of the taller one’s plain face. The shorter one wore his slightly darker hair straight and pushed back from his forehead. His face relaxed into pure bliss as the couple kissed. Jack wanted to freeze it that way.

He vowed to split this couple up. “Their love is meant to be destroyed.” He should forget this southern hell-scape and head north up to the mountains where he could roam the country. But he stayed. He could not let this go. Unreasonable. Irrational. The need to freeze their hearts moved through his blood like a glacier—imposingly large and desperate.

Welcome RJ Scott

RJ Scott is here with her Christmas line up on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Click for RJ Scott on Amazon

I’m sitting here writing this post and it is raining super hard. We’re in the middle of Storm Diana, which my son finds hilarious because my real name is Diane. LOL.

I would love the rain to turn to snow. I love the snow, the beauty of it, the feel of it, standing in softly falling snow, the rolling hills of my county all white…

Only, when England gets snow we’re not setup to handle it. We only need to get a quarter of an inch and the country is at a standstill. First we have the issue of not really having a lot of snow experience. So it’s an exciting thing to happen. Then we don’t have snow ploughs readily at hand, or solid infrastructure set up for snow. Schools close, railways stop running, airports are shut down. It’s all incredibly dramatic, and all for a tiny bit of snow.

Do you have snow where you are right now? A random commenter will win a $10 Amazon gift card (or equivalent in your currency).

More About RJ…

USA Today bestselling author RJ Scott writes stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, a happily ever after.

RJ Scott is the author of over one hundred romance books, writing emotional stories of complicated characters, cowboys,millionaire, princes, and the men who get mixed up in their lives.

Welcome Elle Keaton

Today’s guest is Elle Keaton with

The Northstar

The holiday season can’t be over soon enough for John Hall. His ex-boyfriend emptied the bank accounts and ran off with his personal trainer months earlier leaving John unable to pay his creditors. Now he’s forced to close the independent movie theater he runs, a bad end to a bad year. Gay, single and closer to fifty than forty, John doesn’t see a lot of hope in his future. In the dark of night he wonders if staying afloat is worth the effort.

Chance Allsop made a promise to his dying mother he hopes he doesn’t regret. Ten months after her death he’s finally in Skagit Washington, visiting the old movie theater where his parents met and fell in love decades ago. The whole thing seems like a lark until he lays eyes on the handsome owner. With his mother’s spirit at his back Chance fully intends to win John Hall’s heart.

Welcome M. Jane Colette

M. Jane Colette has a steamy (very steamy) rom-com releasing just in time for the holidays! To celebrate, she’s sharing with us a short video, your choice of an NSFW (so dirty) or Cleanish (it is M. Jane Colette, so it’s as clean as she could manage–it was hard) excerpt, and a chance to win a PRINT copy of Text Me, Cupid. Check it out:

Text Me, Cupid
a (slightly) dirty love story for 21st century adults who don’t believe in true love… but want it anyway
by M. Jane Colette
Genres: contemporary romance, romantic comedy, steamy (occasionally filthy)

HOLIDAY STRESS HAS NEVER BEEN THIS HOT

MEET FLORENCE: I’ve done this before, looking for a partner or soul mate or someone-to-grow-to-love, and you know what? I’m done with that. Honestly. I’m just looking for some casual sex. All I’m interested in is a one-night stand, or several—not all of them with you. Just making it clear that I’m interested in playing with multiple partners. I don’t want to get attached and I don’t want you to get attached.

MEET WILL: I’m reeling from a recent divorce and incapable of having a meaningful relationship, possibly even a meaningful conversation. The only upside to my situation is that after fifteen years of monogamy I get to chase all the strange I want.

He’s freshly divorced and in denial. She’s twice-burnt and prickly. They’re a terrible idea. They know this. But every time their eyes meet, their clothes come off. Still—they’re not going to fall in love. They are not.

Not even if this one night stand has 365 days.

WANT A TASTE?

Here’s M. Jane Colette reading a semi-steamy (but still safe for YouTube and Facebook) excerpt from Text Me, Cupid:

Price: $3.99 US (ebook), $14.99 US (paperback), $9.99-$19.99 (audiobook)

ADVANCE PRAISE

“I couldn’t stop reading this! The waiting, the need, the want, the desire… the story is a rollercoaster and I love it. Will and Florence are so vivid on the page, I was in agony with them from the start.” Alyssa Linn Palmer, author of Midnight at the Orpheus and Le Chat Rouge series

“No one does angst, family drama, hilarity, joy and eroticism better than M. Jane Colette!” DIANA SOBOLEWSKI, author of The Desire & Luxury Wine Series, (on Messy Christmas, Episode 1 of Text Me, Cupid)

“Text Me, Cupid was the first story I’d read by M. Jane Colette, and I love her fresh, taut style. Every word, every sentence counts. It’s smart and sexy. I can’t wait to read the rest!” Michelle Orloff, GoodReads + Amazon.com ARC Review of Delayed Valentine, Episode 2 of Text Me, Cupid

“M. Jane Colette writes complicated relationship dynamics into story lines that keep you off balance but leave you smiling in the end.” Amazon.ca Verified Purchase Review, Delayed Valentine, Episode 2 of Text Me, Cupid

“She spotlights those less than perfect relationships; often the source of hilarity in this author’s work. M. Jane Colette has a unique writing style. At least it’s unique to me. She believes in short sentences and sparse dialogue. Don’t worry, you will not be short changed in any respect. You’ll visualize and experience everything you’re meant to, including the angst, the joy, the funny bits and all of the eroticism. This author doesn’t succeed despite her minimalist approach. She succeeds because of it. M. Jane Colette has mastered doing more with less.” Amazon.ca Verified Purchase Review, (on Messy Christmas, Episode 1 of Text Me, Cupid)

“M. Jane Colette knows how to write characters.” Caught Between The Pages (on Consequences)

“I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a sexy, intelligent, complicated, and fascinating read about relationships that are as complex and difficult and wonderful and confusing as most relationships usually are.” Grey Matter (on Tell Me)

“This book is a cure for divorce, depression, loneliness, boredom, you name it. Laugh-out-loud funny from the first page!” Holly Owen, Alberta Romance Writers’ Association (on Cherry Pie Cure)

“Warning: You may breakout in spontaneous laughter, develop cravings for baked goods and become a life-long devotee of the author!” Carrie Austin Reviews (on Cherry Pie Cure)

Welcome Sean Kerr

We have Sean Kerr today with his story

Jingle My Bells.

When Christmas arrives, it’s not only the Turkey that gets stuffed!

Michael’s life has changed dramatically, and as he heads home from his parent’s house and their traditional Christmas gathering, Michael can’t help but reflect on the reasons why his husband left him.

Michael knew it was his fault. It was just another tragedy to add to his growing list of woes. But just as he is about to reach the safety of his empty home, he witnesses something remarkable, a glowing U.F.O that lights up the sky above him. He can only watch in stunned amazement as something breaks away from the U.F.O and crashes into the surrounding forest.

Dazed by his extraordinary encounter, Michael is even more surprised to find a naked man in the middle of the road. As he tries to help the enigmatic stranger, Michael witnesses a miracle that changes his life forever, and Christmas is reborn in a heart he thought was forever broken.

WARNING: This short story contains graphic language and explicit scenes of a sexual nature. Please avoid if you are offended by adult content.

Author Bio

Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sean Kerr, and I am a 49-year-old gay man living in Cardiff, Wales with my husband of 28 years, Derek. We have two cats, Rita and Harry, and a host of tropical fish.

I worked on building sites for years, and I used the money earned from that to put myself through college, specialist paint techniques etc. I trained in fine art, and then I went out and painted murals on client’s walls, and created Roman Bathrooms and fantasy hand painted bedrooms, all the rage back in the late eighties and nineties. I then became an Interior Designer for a large DIY chain. For the past thirteen years I ran my own Interiors business, and while that is no longer in existence, I am now looking for my next challenge in life!

By night I am an Author, and I am very proud to be an author for Extasy Books. It took me some years to get to this point. I spent a very long time trying to get an agent because I thought it was the right thing to do, and after a heck of a lot of refusals, I nearly gave up. I came so close to hitting the delete button on Dead Camp 1 because I thought I did not stand a chance. At the very last moment, I decided to have a go at approaching a few publishers directly, and I sent the manuscript to six. Within two weeks, I had offers of publication from three! Let’s just say that there may have been tears lol. It was my chance, at last, to become a part of a world that I have always loved and admired from a distance, and it is one of the very best things to ever happened to me.

Dead Camp is the first series I ever wrote, and then there is my short novella called Hush Little Baby. Dead Camp is my take on the Vampire genre, an MM Paranormal Romance series that is set against a backdrop of World War 2.However, the series uses key moments from History to tell one enormous saga,and I have loved every single moment of writing it. There are five books in the Dead Camp series.

Hush is a pure horror story with more than a nod towards such classic programs as The Twilight Zone and Tales of The Unexpected. The project happened just after I completed Dead Camp 3 and it is a story that I had to get out of my system.It’s definitely a different beast to my Vampire saga, and I hope it will make you go to bed with the lights on lol!

I recently ventured into the world of self-publishing, and as such, I have just released my first independent book series, The Last Child. The Last Child is a horror series that is in 3 parts dealing with the occult. It has a definite Dan Brown vibe in that I love conspiracy stories, so I have used religion and some intriguing legends as the backdrop to this contemporary supernatural thriller that tells the story of a female protagonist trying to protect her young student. Neither of them realizes how their lives, and indeed their histories,are intertwined in the most horrific and tragic ways.

My latest book, ‘The Man Inside Me’ is an MM Victorian Gothic Romance, and I think it is the favorite thing I have written so far. It deals with two men in their fifties trying to find love again, a subject that is very close to my heart as I approach that milestone. It is a very important book to me, and while it has some very ‘KERR’ twists and turns, it is, at its heart, a very romantic tale that deals with middle age. I am particularly proud of this book, and it is a very different spin on the MM genre.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to meeting you on social media.
