Blog Tour: Flowers for the Gardener by Sharon Maria Bidwell

Length: 70,000 words approx.
Publisher: JMS Books

A warm-hearted rich man's son, Richard Gardener needs to overcome three obstacles: find a way the family business can run without him, help his mother cope with grief, and stop butting heads -- and other parts of his anatomy -- with the gardener.

Ethan Fields has worked for the Gardener family for many years. He’s struggling with debt and the desire to leave, and has loved Richard far longer than the man would believe. Ethan can cope with most things, but his anger with Richard’s mother won’t fade. Until that and his feelings for Richard are resolved, he feels trapped and, alas, the idea that sex will get Richard out of his system isn’t working.

To make the situation worse, both men assume too much and don’t say the right words, and Ethan’s offer of ‘just sex’ grows more complicated by the day. Can Richard and Ethan stop getting their wires crossed before their paths diverge?

Blog Tour: Ice on Fire by G.R. Lyons

Cover Design: Designs By Dana


Zac Cinder is on the verge of making his dream come true. His punk rock band, Inferno, might have a shot at an audition for a record deal. Fame and fortune would mean he could finally help his parents. They'd raised eight kids in a loving household while barely scraping by, so Zac is determined to give back in any way he can.

Keeping Inferno together, though, means keeping his biggest secret. His bigoted bandmates would drop him in an instant if they found out Zac was gay.

Then he meets Adrian Frost, and Zac can't resist the shy man. Adrian gives up everything to be with Zac, but Zac can't bring himself to do the same. He doesn't want to lose Adrian, but he can't give up Inferno, either. Not when he's so close to realizing his dream.

When one cruel decision rips Adrian from his life, Zac will have to decide if ambition is worth the price of the greatest happiness he's ever known.

(Note: This story takes place in a fictional world, the same as in the Shifting Isles Series. There are multiple gods, different names for the days of the week, etc. A glossary is included.)

WARNING: Contains scenes of self-harm that may be disturbing for some readers.

What It Means to Care by MalecTales

What It Means to Care by MalecTales

Alec loves his son more than anything in the world, so when a job opportunity arises where Alec can pursue his career interests and have his son nearby in the company daycare center, he jumps at the chance. The incredibly alluring daycare provider doesn't hurt either. 

Recently I've been reading quite a few Malec stories in which Alec and Magnus are parents. This particular one is so adorable and a joy to read. I love the interactions both Alec and Magnus have with Max and I can't wait to see how the relationship between the two men unfolds. Check it out!

This is Where I Belong by Icylightning

This is Where I Belong by Icylightning

Magnus and Alec's children are in the same kindergarten class, but they do not get along at all. Even though Alec is his son's teacher, he always tries to keep his work life and personal life separate; he doesn't want anyone to think he's playing favorites. When he meets the father of his son's sworn enemy, he soon finds that that those careful lines and boundaries he's created will start to blur.

This is a delightful story that I recently discovered. While still in its very early stages, I find Magnus, Alec, Rafael and Max to be wonderful characters that I want to learn more about. I can't wait to see what happens between the dads and how the boys will react to their fathers' relationship. Check it out!

Steel Horses by CrissieB

Steel Horses by CrissieB

Alec's pride and joy is on the fritz and everyone recommends one, elusive guy to fix the motorcycle. Upon meeting the popular mechanic, Alec is completely taken. Although their attraction to one another is strong, outside forces may tear Magnus and Alec apart before they even get the chance to really enjoy each other.

Even though this story is still in its beginning stages, I'm really enjoying it. I love the banter between Magnus and Alec, and there is just enough tension and suspense to keep me fully invested. Give this story a try! You won't be disappointed!
