fancy lineresize

A geek. A virgin. One sexy holiday.

Orphaned Lucas figures spending the holidays with his obnoxious roommate’s family in New York City is better than staying alone on campus upstate. He ends up sharing a room again, this time with his roommate’s brother, Nate. Geeky photographer Nate isn’t at all what Lucas expects. In fact, he’s incredibly sexy—especially when he invites Lucas into his darkroom…

They hide their attraction during Hanukkah celebrations, but behind closed doors, Lucas and Nate can’t keep their hands (or mouths) off each other. Nate’s only looking for a bit of holiday fun, and amazing sex with a hot virgin definitely fits the bill. Yet as the candles burn, Nate and Lucas begin to realize eight nights will never be enough.

This gay holiday romance from Keira Andrews features secret trysts, new adult angst, spinning the dreidel, and of course a happy ending. 25,000 words.

Note: Originally published as Eight Nights by Loose Id in 2007. New edition significantly revised and expanded.

New Release: Wish You Were Mine, by @TaraSivec

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher’s Light comes a new, standalone novel—a heartwrenching story about first loves and second chances that will make you fall in love all over again….

Five years. I would’ve stayed away longer if I hadn’t received the letter. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought about her, haven’t missed her smile, haven’t wished that things were different.

The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn’t be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn’t stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him.

But now that I am back, things are different. I’m not going to stand by and watch the woman I’ve always loved slip away again. I’m done living my life with regrets and I’m ready to tell her the truth. And I’ll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.

New Release: Constant Craving, by @TamaraLush

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Let go of the past to have any chance at a future…

I’m shocked when Rafael Menendez de Aviles — my first love, my one downfall — appears at my business, offering to save it from bankruptcy. I’m even more stunned when Rafael, looking hotter than ever, makes a proposition: spend the next month together, allowing him to do anything he desires with me.

And make no mistake: he will demand everything, and make me submit.

If I agree to his indecent proposal, my business gets everything it needs — and I get almost everything I desire. But is Rafael only back in my life to show me what I’ve missed all these years? Is he out for revenge? Or something more dangerous — like love? I’m not sure, but I know this: I’m powerless against his touch, his kisses, his body.

Opening our hearts and giving our bodies to each other a second time may destroy us forever…especially when the pain of the past and difficult choices for the future collide.

Burning Secrets #3

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

She’s out of a job. He’s a reclusive, geeky gamer god. Will these two find love again after a complicated past?

Catalina Richardson tries to do everything right, but technology keeps getting in her way. Like when she was in high school and texted naked photos of herself to her boyfriend. That cost her a scholarship and her reputation. And it ended the best relationship she’s ever had.

Now fired from her job at a New York City news website — that politician’s dick pics weren’t her idea — Catalina’s back home on Palmira Island and runs into the one person she’s tried to forget: her ex-boyfriend and first love, Diego Rodriguez.

Diego’s living large. He’s the founder of a wildly successful video game startup, where fans watch him and his buddies play games for a living. Tech magazines say he’s one of the sexiest gamers in the world.

But when Catalina walks back into his life one rainy Florida night, he knows that he needs to set aside his on-camera act. Because he’s not about to lose the woman he loves a second time. 

Trouble is, someone’s trying to thwart Diego’s success and his fragile relationship with Catalina. Will he find out who’s sending him Catalina’s embarrassing old photos? And, will she trust him to make everything right, or keep running away?

Never make a promise you don’t intend to keep…

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother’s art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it’s in the red. She soon realizes she has no choice but to sell it.

Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.

The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting…but surely her mother didn’t mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…

The Red is a standalone novel of erotic fantasy from Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief and the Original Sinners series.

Lovestruck Librarians #6

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

AN ADMIRER WITH A SECRET . . .

Mary Higgs could be the poster girl for the buttoned-up librarian. She follows the rules. Stays ʼtil closing. Her kindness and dedication to her patrons are legendary. But those patrons have no idea what she’s typing to the mysterious shut-in who emailed the library three months ago . . .

A year ago, Miles O’Connor was a gleaming, ab-sational star of the small screen. Then came the accident. Now he’s a wounded recluse with a pizza habit and fears so unshakable that only the thought of losing Mary to an online date could lure him out of his cabin.

Soon their email rapport has turned into weekends on the couch, watching tearjerkers and driving each other insane with red-hot makeout sessions. But as their desire grows and their horizons expand, the life that brought them together might not be enough for either of them . . .

About the Author:

While I was growing up, my mother kept a stack of books hidden in her closet. She told me I couldn’t read them. So, naturally, whenever she left me alone for any length of time, I took them out and flipped through them. Those books raised quite a few questions in my prepubescent brain. Namely: 1) Why were there so many pirates? 2) Where did all the throbbing come from? 3) What was a “manhood”? 4) And why did the hero and heroine seem overcome by images of waves and fireworks every few pages, especially after an episode of mysterious throbbing in the hero’s manhood?

Thirty or so years later, I have a few answers. 1) Because my mom apparently fancied pirates at that time. Now she hoards romances involving cowboys and babies. If a book cover features a shirtless man in a Stetson cradling an infant, her ovaries basically explode and her credit card emerges. I have a similar reaction to romances involving spinsters, governesses, and librarians. 2) His manhood. Also, her womanhood. 3) It’s his “hard length,” sometimes compared in terms of rigidity to iron. I prefer to use other names for it in my own writing. However, I am not picky when it comes to descriptions of iron-hard lengths. 4) Because explaining how an orgasm feels can prove difficult. Or maybe the couples all had sex on New Year’s Eve at Cancun.

During those thirty years, I accomplished a few things. I graduated from Wake Forest University and earned my M.A. in American History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I worked at a variety of jobs that required me to bury my bawdiness and potty mouth under a demure exterior: costumed interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, high school teacher, and librarian. But I always, always read romances. Funny, filthy, sweet–it didn’t matter. I loved them all.

Now I’m writing my own romances with the encouragement of my husband and daughter. I have my own stack of books in my closet that I’d rather my daughter not read, at least not for a few years. I can swear whenever I want, except around said daughter. And I get to spend all day writing about love and iron-hard lengths.

So thank you, Mom, for perving so hard on pirates during my childhood. I owe you.
