On the agenda today, after I finish putting together this blog because I just love doing things like this the last minute, is to see if I can finish a flash fiction piece today for the blog tour. Tristan finds out Corleone has knocked up Dancing Socks. :) It's going to be funny.
In the meantime, here's a quick wishlist of books I'd like to read when I have time again.
Title: The Lonely Merman
Series: (Landlocked Heart Book 1)
Author(s): Kay Berrisford
Length: 99 pages
Publisher: LT3 Press
Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Urban Fantasy / Gay /
Notes: Ms. Berriford wrote another merman book that I loved to pieces, The Merman and the Barbarian Pirate.
It's Friday afternoon, and the last thing Ben wants to be doing is trudging through a wet forest in search of a public hazard. But duty calls, and turns out more exciting than Ben imagined when he encounters a magical ruin, an enchanted pool, and Lyle—a merman who's cursed to be landlocked many miles from the sea.
Lyle is flamboyant and exciting—he's got tentacles, for goodness sake!—and Ben falls hard. But Lyle's been hurt before and finds trust difficult, refusing even to reveal how to break the curse that imprisons him. Ben's just an ordinary guy, and can't help wondering if he can ever be the hero Lyle needs.
Title: Faerie Bound
Author(s): Jenna Castille
Length: 157 pages
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (June 27, 2017)
Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Fantasy / BDSM / Gay / Shifters /
Garrick has spent the better part of his life making his Las Vegas lupin pack the strongest of all the post-war human-born paranormal groups. Now he wants something for himself--a mate. But how will his pack respond if they discover their Alpha is a closeted sexual submissive?
Not the typical faerie prince, Faolan is disobedient, lives in exile, and has more piercings than a punk band. He's also a sexual dominant longing for someone to call his own.
What are a lovelorn faerie and wolf to do? Turn to a paranormal dating service, of course. When Divine Intervention pairs Garrick and Faolan, it's a match made in BDSM heaven, and the resulting explosion a conflagration of passion the likes of which neither has ever known.
Of course, the reactions to a wolf/faerie union are just as heated...
Note: This book was previously released by another publisher.
