Paperback Sale Ends March 31st #ValespianPact #SumeriasSons

There are only a couple days left before the paperback sale at Less Than Three paperbacks ends. I ordered from my wishlist earlier this month and my pretties came in the mail today, which reminded me to make sure I blogged about the 50 % off sale ending.


So don't miss out. I would like to say that you don't have to go as crazy as I did... but seriously it was hard to be good when some of the paperbacks cost was comparable to the ebooks. 

From my back list, you can find select paperbacks on sale from 25% to 50% from now until March 31.


Alpha Trine (Valespian Pact, 1)
Regular Print Price: $12.99 Sale: $6.48 (Save 50%)

Blurb: The sole survivor on a science vessel adrift in deep space, Zeus was adopted by the Emperor and Empress of the Mar'Sani, though he is both human and blind, and seen by most as unfit to join the royal family. Though they were able to repair his vision, Zeus does not trust his eyes and the nobles of his parents' court refuse to ever trust a frail human.


Dargon Kal-Turak, along with his symbiote and lover Alpha, command one of the most dangerous ships in the stars. Narrowly escaping a trap, they dock in a space port to make repairs, but find that the Psionics hunting them are closing in fast. In desperation they kidnap the port Master Mechanic, unaware that the man they've brought on board is more than he seems, and will bring far more upheaval to their ship, their lives, and the stars than any of them could have imagined.



Striker (The Valespian Pact, 2)
Regular Print Price: $16.99 Sale: $8.47 (Save 50%)

Blurb: The peaceful respite for which Zeus and his intended, Dargon and Alpha, had been hoping for is shattered when Zeus is unexpectedly drawn to the Waters of Poseidon and told that the safety they've been promised is a trap.

But the Fal'Amoric aren't the only important cargo on the Oethra 7, and countless others are depending on the success of their mission. If Zeus hopes to break the silent siege on Valespia and protect those most precious to him, he will need not just powerful allies but the fortitude to survive overwhelming odds.

Twin Flames (Sumeria's Sons, 1)
Regular Print Price: $11.99 Sale: $5.98 (Save 50%)

Blurb: A Lycan descendant of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Tristan is not as extraordinary as his ancestors. He is an average warrior, unremarkable throughout. But this fact does not trouble him because he has found his Twin Flame, the one person destined to be his, who will love him unconditionally, life after life.

Then his Flame betrays him, leaving him shattered and dying. Brokenhearted, Tristan dissolves the sacred bond and leaves. His best friend, Ushna, accompanies him, vowing to guard and protect him, and Tristan slowly comes to realize that love does not require a sacred bond.

But if he hopes to keep the love he chooses, they will first have to survive ancient secrets, lies, mythical creatures, and the return of absent gods...

Regular Print Price: $11.99 Sale: $8.99 (Save 25%)

Blurb: Thrust into the role of Prince of the Lycans, Tristan strives to find his footing in a life suddenly rife with secrets and lies—and danger. Betrayed by a Goddess meant to safeguard him, desperate to protect his consort and their growing tribe, he can only prepare for the worst and struggle to hope.
And then the worst comes to kill them...

Regular Print Price: Sale: $10.49 (Save 25%)

Blurb: For Tristan and Ushna, nothing comes easy and with each passing day the challenges grow and the dangers multiply. The safe home they are building for their family and tribe is threatened from all sides, and the peace they seek is being torn apart by enemies and internal strife. Tristan dares not reveal his condition to any but those closest to him, all the while he's plagued by dreams he cannot remember upon waking...

And over all of it hangs the knowledge that his time with Ushna is running out. Because Ushna already has a Flame awaiting rebirth, and though Tristan would die to protect that bond, he constantly struggles against his beast who demands they bind Ushna to their side.

Regular Print Price: $11.99 Sale: $8.99 (Save 25%)

Blurb: Tristan has agreed to bond with Ushna, but there is still much to do and returning to Tribe Enkidu puts everyone on edge. Tristan is being stalked like prey, all the while fighting depression as he mourns the loss of Nikita, and enduring a battle of wills with the Elder Council over his birthright. The pleading of his adoptive daughter only adds still more stress to the situation.

Stumbling onto a secret prison while searching for Ushna leads Tristan to risk everything to free a lost God. But breaking the tie to his Flame has more repercussions than Tristan knew and the assistance of a forgotten Goddess and a centuries old lover may not be enough to save him.

Regular Print Price: $18.99 Sale: $14.24 (Save 25%)

Blurb: In the wake of birth and betrayal, Ushna takes the God Ashur to Tristan in a last desperate bid to save Tristan's life—and is helpless to do anything but watch as Ashur instead buries him in a grave. Though he has no desire to go on living, having now lost Brian and Tristan, Ushna has no choice. Not only do their children need him, the mysterious Simurgh has come out of hiding and forces him to continue on—for there is much to do and little time to do it, especially with treachery and danger closing in on them from every side.

Keep The Stars Running
Regular Print Price: $21.99 Sale: $16.49 (Save 25%)

Blurb: Space is not always filled with adventures and glory. Not everybody goes racing off to battle evil and save the galaxy.

Sinistrus the incubus, newly hired as an AURA medic, actually enjoys his busy new life of responsible employee and faithful lover to his gorgeous police sergeant, Ness the centaur. Life would be perfect, except for a niggling suspicion about a colleague. Everyone else seems to disagree, but Sin’s certain something’s not right with that pixie.

Kellen, a pixie crossover, loves his job working in AURA medical, even if he is something of an outsider. His job and the friends he manages to make are happy spots in an otherwise dark and secretive life. As the rest of AURA tries to discover the root of the inexplicable rise in violence and large-scale Events, Kellen fights to preserve his own life and what dignity he has left.

When a troupe of sideshow performers are hired by Darque and Knight to augment the rodeo, he’s forced to redefine his ideas of what constitutes beauty and what defines a freak. Meanwhile, the hard, protective shell he’s erected around his heart threatens to crack wide open under the tender touch of Micah, the sideshow’s hideous Snake Man.

Desperate to leave a life of bad memories behind and start over in the Martian colony, Raleigh fully intends to keep that promise. But his plans are thwarted when a meteor near-misses him in the desert, and Raleigh finds in its crater not debris or even a spacecraft, but a man covered in swirling scars and with no memory of who he is. At least he looks like a man—a man Raleigh can't seem to keep his eyes off of—but whenever they touch it ignites a memory swap between them.

Raleigh agrees to help Meteor Man piece together his life through their cosmic connection. But the memory share goes both ways, and Raleigh becomes inexplicably entangled with a guy who is everything he needs—everything good that Raleigh is not—but might not even be human.

Their physical and mental survival depends on them bonding.
Jamal Zumati joins the military, determined to repay the country that fed and housed him. But during his Hamask activation, his senses go offline and he enters a berserker rage. The United States Hamrammr Program, or USHP, has only one option: put him into hibernation.

Despite his extraordinary ability to read and manipulate situations, Vargr Lt. Rum Walker has stepped on one too many brass toes, and the USHP demoted him back to teaching new candidates. Rum is one paranoid thought away from self-destruction when he is recruited for a covert mission: pull Jamal from hibernation.

The problem is, no one has ever survived a berserker fury—at least not officially. If Rum is to challenge the military stereotypes, he’ll not only need to wake Jamal—he’ll need to get him to agree to be bonded as a Hamra Pair, the ultimate supersoldier team.

When Jamal and Rum team up with an FBI Hamra Pair to stop the terrorist group Dios Provee, Rum thinks he’ll show Jamal their true potential lies in an equal partnership, but Jamal is convinced Rum should take the lead. Will Rum stop Jamal from going berserk again and destroying both of their futures?

While the human Ryan has made an enemy of the greatest Angel in Heaven--Anifiel, the Commander of Heaven's Army--Ryan has somehow managed to befriend Anifiel's kind and gentle battle companion, Vithius. Ryan adores the handsome Angel and is all too happy to teach Vithius the ways that humans make love. But how much knowledge is too much? Is he corrupting Vithius as Anifiel has accused? Meanwhile, Demons are beating at the gates of Heaven with renewed aggression. Vithius believes he knows why the Demons are so determined, but Anifiel and Ryan refuse to listen to his theory, afraid to believe what it signifies about their relationship to each other. Can Vithius bring the three of them together? Or will the desire that they continue to resist bring down the entirety of Heaven?

Contains m/m, m/m/m scenes. Non-religious.

Excerpt
 
(From: Territory of Angels)

Anifiel watched him steadily. "What was this joke?"

Ryan swallowed hard. "We were looking at a tattoo parlor. He saw someone with a piercing. A nipple piercing. When I showed him mine, he acted like he wanted one, too."

Golden brows stabbed together. "What is a nipple piercing?"

Ryan stopped breathing for a second. Oh, no. "It's—it's when you put jewelry through your, um, nipple." He could feel himself blushing furiously at the thought of Anifiel imagining what his nipple looked like.

"You say you have this? Show me."

Ryan shook his head and wrapped an arm around his chest. "No."

He yelped when Anifiel dropped on him without warning, pinning him on his back to the cloud.

"Get off me!" Ryan gasped as he tried to buck the Angel off.

Heavy limbs effectively brought his thrashing to an end. Panting, Ryan found himself trapped with his wrists above his head in one of Anifiel's hands. The Angel's other hand, to his horror, tugged at the neck of Ryan's tunic.

"What are you doing?" Ryan asked, incredulous.

Anifiel ignored him, frowning as he seemed to realize he could not lower Ryan's tunic while his arms were held above his head. "My apologies," he muttered with that same lack of sincerity as earlier. Ryan twitched as Anifiel grabbed hold of the neck of his tunic and simply ripped through it.

Ryan stared up at Anifiel, wide-eyed at what he'd done. This was his fantasy, and yet the reality scared him down to his toes. To be this vulnerable to the Commander was both the hottest experience of Ryan's life (and death) and the most terrifying.

The Angel's green eyes rounded for a split second as they latched onto the silver hoop adorning Ryan's chest.

"This is what Finnian desired?" Anifiel looked dumbfounded. "Why would he want this?"

In a voice laced with nerves, Ryan told him. "He thought it was pretty. And when I told him that it feels good, he was curious about that, too."

Green eyes flicked up to him. "It feels good? In what way?" Without waiting for an answer, Anifiel flicked the ring with his index finger.

Ryan gasped loudly and pushed his hips up. He'd never reacted this intensely to someone touching the ring, but something about the fact that it was Anifiel—the fear of being hurt by him, maybe—made Ryan's cock surge to a full erection.

"Get off!" he all but yelled, panicking. "Get off me!"

"Human lusts," Anifiel said coldly, eyes narrowing to slits. "Always it is about your corruption. Is this how you seduced my consort? By offering him pleasure of this sort? Did you give him an example of how it would be?"

Ryan shook his head vehemently. He needed Anifiel to get off him. The Angel's pelvis was pressed against his own and it was all Ryan could do not to pump against him and find relief for his throbbing cock. It was bad enough that Anifiel had aroused him and could feel it. But now Ryan had to fight his own body's demand for more than that.

"Get off," he pleaded. "Please, Anifiel."

Something thick and drugging moved through Ryan's veins. His inhibitions began to dissolve like mist, replaced by a growing desire. He felt strange, and yet not bad, as if he'd just taken a hit of Ecstasy. In fact, it began to feel incredible…He rolled his hips up into Anifiel's and groaned at the beautiful friction against his cock. Oh, yes.

"What are you doing down there?" Anifiel asked. "Why do you rub against me so?"

Ryan was in no state of mind to be giving lessons. "Because it…feels good," he moaned.

"This is what Finnian asked me for," Anifiel murmured. Even through the lusty fog enveloping his brain, Ryan heard the wonder and resentment vying for dominance within Anifiel. "He wanted to make love as you humans do. He was dissatisfied with me because of you!" The Angel gripped Ryan by the hair. "Show me your filthy human lust."

What is on the Reading Radar #WishList #TBR

I missed a couple of weeks posting what's on my reading radar. I had this scheduled for the 6th. *scatches nose* Obviously I didn't finish it in time. These are fun posts for my but they are also labor intensive and I was under the weather for almost two weeks.

This time around, there are a couple on the list that I've already purchased and read. Usually, I'm not ahead of myself but sick in bed... when I wasn't sleeping the illness away, I read. Or tried to. There was one point I was so sick I just couldn't and I lamented the wasted hours/days.

The DMA Files, Book 2

After her husband threw her out, Paisley Compton drew her sexuality around her like a shield. She finds solid ground as a palace maid until, during a formal dinner service, she trips onto the lap of a man who takes her breath away.

Ben has always known Jon is far more than property, and he jumps at the chance to get the android his certificate of humanity. Paisley—whose abilities far exceed her job title—is a welcome distraction from the bureaucracy.

Used and abused by his former owners, Jon trusts no one—particularly the smartass woman who’s caught Ben’s eye. He might not be certified human yet, but he has all the right parts to get to the bottom of this sexy mystery wrapped in a maid’s uniform.

Their attraction sparks unexpected new conduits among them, but when they realize Jon’s certificate comes with a terrible price, they must risk everything to foil an Anti-Mech plot—and hope they survive to lose themselves in each other’s arms.

It’s a foolproof strategy...until the emotional balance shifts.

After yet another adoption falls through, Gabe is ready to give up, and Shahid isn’t far behind him. Apparently, being a gay couple—half of which is Muslim—is just one strike too many for the powers that be.

When their friend Kendra offers to carry their baby for them, both men balk at first, but gradually warm to the idea. Especially Gabe, whose bisexuality is open to the chemistry among the three of them.

The plan seems simple. Kendra and Gabe, foregoing the cold, impersonal IVF clinic, paperwork and red tape, will conceive the old-fashioned way. They’ll all share parenting responsibilities, and live happily baby after.

But as the heat flares between Gabe and Kendra, Shahid’s long-suppressed insecurities bubble to the surface. Then some unexpected news catches the trio off guard and derails their plans—and now one heart could be left out in the cold.

The conversations are often odd, but the company is welcome.


Xerxes is an incubus. When he's drawn to the dream of an attractive foreigner, he's expecting a fun night and a tasty meal. He is certainly not expecting to be given a sweater. All his seduction attempts fail spectacularly, leaving him annoyed and confused.

When he finds a beautiful stranger cornered by a pack of wolves, he doesn’t hesitate to shift into his golden dragon form to save her. She thanks him by taking one look at him and fainting dead away.

Photographer Adelaide Miller is in England for a career-making shoot when a bizarre jogging mishap lands her in a dangerous, medieval-like world of royals, wizards and dragon-shifting men. Her first instinct is to find her way back, but the fire-breathing prince intent on protecting her threatens to melt her heart.

Zayne’s burning passion for Adelaide not only jeopardizes the fragile peace between two kingdoms, it uncovers a ruthless plot to destroy his family. Remaining together may change Adelaide’s very definition of home—and expose one searing secret that could forever shift the balance of power in Zayne’s world.

I’m Tyler Lindsey, and until recently, I had an okay apartment, an okay girlfriend, and an okay job as a bellboy at a respectable Boston hotel. Then rock star Chris Raiden died right before I brought his room service—stiffing me on the tip, by the way—and my life went to hell. My fifteen minutes of fame was more like five seconds, and my girlfriend left me in disgust. 


But even worse—Chris is haunting me. Not the room where he died, like a normal ghost. No, somehow he’s stuck to me and is insisting on taking care of a bunch of unfinished business in California. So now I have to traipse across the country with the world’s most narcissistic ghost.

But . . . I keep having these weird thoughts. Thoughts about how much I like the way he makes me laugh. Thoughts where I kind of want to kiss the emo-narcissist, even though he’s a ghost and an asshole and I can’t touch him anyway. And even if I could, what will happen when he finishes his business and nothing’s keeping him here anymore?

It’s amazing what people throw away…

Crispin Tredarloe never meant to become a warlock. Freed from his treacherous master, he’s learning how to use his magical powers the right way. But it’s brutally hard work. Not everyone believes he’s a reformed character, and the strain is putting unbearable pressure on his secret relationship with waste-man Ned Hall.

Ned’s sick of magic. Sick of the trouble it brings, sick of its dangerous grip on Crispin and the miserable look it puts in his eyes, and sick of being afraid that a gentleman magician won’t want a street paper-seller forever—or even for much longer.

But something is stirring among London’s forgotten discards. An ancient evil is waking up and seeking its freedom. And when wild magic hits the rag-and-bottle shop where Ned lives, a panicked Crispin falls back onto bad habits. The embattled lovers must find a way to work together—or London could go up in flames.

This story is set in the world of the Charm of Magpies series.

Warning: Contains a warlock who needs to go straight (but isn’t), a waste-man running out of patience, blood magic, bad-tempered justiciars, and a pen with a mind of its own.

Notes:

Blurb: 


Lieutenant Colonel Nik Zhukov is just like any other desensitized seventeen-year-old living in the year 2076. At least he likes to think he is when he isn’t busy eliminating threats to national security, breaking up terrorist organizations, and trying not to get blown up. It’s all in a normal day’s work for one of the military’s top dogs, and he’s never disappointed. Never failed. Never lost sight of his dream of making it to the elite force, even as each new job forces him to see just how morally corrupt his leaders are. 


On the verge of promotion, Nik is dispatched to the underground city beneath the icy Seattle tundra, his final mission handed down directly from The Council. It should have been a simple in-and-out, but the underground is full of dark secrets and he soon finds himself swept into battles, lying to his best friend back east, and growing a bit too close to the rebels he was sent to spy on.

Nik realizes too late that he’s broken the number one rule within his ranks; he’s allowed himself to feel normal for the first time in his life. He might be able to turn the job around, become the soldier he was once was, except for his growing attachment to the rebel leader. A guy. Yet another first for Nik. It’s a mistake he pays for dearly when he learns The Council’s true intentions for the city.

It’s never ‘just harmless fun’ when you’re a government dog, not when The Council holds the leash. Nik knows there are some lines you can never come back from crossing, and he’s forced to choose whose rules to play by. He races toward the invisible divide, aware he’ll be called traitor by both his nation and by his friends. Aware that even the right choice can be deadly to make.

Colm Weathercliff is a simple fisherman with an uncanny—some might say preternatural—knack for his trade. He thought leaving his small village to take his father’s ashes to the capital city of Caithmor for a proper burial would be the grandest adventure of his life.

At first, all his hopes seem to be fulfilled. He finds a home where he’s accepted without question, the freedom to use his talent to its fullest effect, and love with Nichol, a man with a longing for the sea as powerful as Colm’s.

But Caithmor holds as many dangers as it does attractions. Colm’s greatest secret turns out to be a dark revelation that gets him and his family shunned—and changes everything he thought he knew about himself.

The truth—about his parentage, his gift, even his physical form—could poison his chance for love. And doom both him and Nichol to a gruesome, inescapable fate.
