Boys Of Brighton Book Tour + Giveaway


Gabe
Boys of Brighton Book 1
by M. Tasia
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

Fifth-generation firefighter Gabe Mason saves Johnny from the flames of an office building fire, and Johnny will save Gabe from himself.


UNQUENCHABLE

Gabe Mason is a fifth-generation firefighter unable to move forward with his life after a devastating betrayal two years earlier. Graphic designer Johnny Jeffrey relocated to Brighton, Texas, to flee persecution and fear, and to begin living again on his own terms. The two meet amidst fire and smoke, and soon Johnny is in Gabe’s arms, right where he should be. The connection is palpable, undeniable, and hot, and healing from the past is within reach of both men. And yet, the office-building blaze that brought them together is only the beginning of their struggles. Not family, not faith, not a lunatic’s rage. It took a fire to bring Gabe and Johnny together. Nothing will tear them apart.




Sam's Soldiers
Boys of Brighton Book 2

Emergency room nurse Samuel Mason is offered a ménage relationship with two ex-military men and discovers a love more dangerous—and more exquisite—than he anticipated.


Welcome back to Brighton, Texas. Where any man can find home.

THE POWER OF THREE

As an emergency room nurse at Brighton General, Samuel Mason spends most of his days caring for the sick and injured, and his nights alone. Until now.

Jack “ Spider” Forrester and Dante Snow have arrived. Retired from the Army, they provide protection to those in need. They’ve come to Brighton to guard Sam’s cousin from a dire threat, but it’s Sam’s world they turn inside out. Jack wears his heart on his sleeve but is no pushover, and Dante is scarred from a past he’d sooner forget. They two are partners in all things, from the bedroom to the office to the street, and they want Sam to join them...for as long as they’re in town. But there is danger ahead, and not just from the type of men these skilled, muscled heroes have sworn to take down. The danger of falling in love.




Rick's Bear
Boys of Brighton Book 3

Welcome back to Brighton, Texas. Where any man can find home.


A DEN OF THEIR OWN

Clem “Bear” Mitchell owns the only diner in Brighton and prefers to be left alone. After growing up in—and barely escaping—one of the toughest motorcycle gangs out of Chicago, he just wants peace. Librarian Rick Johansson is the same. Due to his anxiety, he has always lived on the outskirts of society, finding it far safer to stay in the stacks. But no man is an island, and when the two are thrust together by dangerous events playing out around them, they see that life is better together. The tattooed, bear of a biker and the quiet, unassuming librarian will soon show the residents of Brighton that the local bookworm can teach an old bear new tricks.




Jesse
Boys of Brighton Book 4

Welcome back to Brighton, Texas. Where any man can find home.


HEATING UP

Royce Evans has worked as a paramedic in Brighton since graduating college. After the accident, though, his life seemed over. His husband died. Then he met Jesse. Handsome, brave, loving—the short-order cook is everything Royce desires. Everything he’d thought forever gone. Now Jesse’s tan, muscled body has brought him back to life, and nothing is going to shut that down. Not his own fears of heartbreak. Not Jesse’s past, or the fact that he ran from it. And definitely not Jesse’s crazy violent family, the Redemption Squad.





Coop
Boys of Brighton Book 5

Running from parents who didn’t know how to love him and a past he’d sooner forget, private security contractor “Coop” Stenson must protect from danger the unexpected happiness he finds with beautiful but accident-prone Matthew Whitton.


CATCH ME WHEN I FALL

King of the one-night stand, Coop Stenson knows his warped upbringing and chosen profession with the Sentinels, a private security team, has conditioned him to avoid romantic attachments. Yet when accident-prone Matthew Whitton literally falls into his life, one thing is abundantly clear: Matt deserves more than a man-slut.

Matthew’s love is overpowering, and just as Coop is ready to take the plunge, having fought its inevitable pull for as long as he could, an old nemesis targets the partners of the Sentinels. So keeping Matt safe is about more than just another job or set of logistics. It’s about the rest of his life.  




Travis
Boys of Brighton Book 6

BEAUTY...


After living on the streets and in his car, Travis has found a home in Brighton, Texas. His job as a cook at the local diner pays enough for him to afford a small apartment, and, for the first time in years, he's able to feed his passion, buying a few art supplies so he can sketch. He's safe, and, oddly enough, feels accepted in this small town. And, for reasons he cannot fathom, Bo Mason, a gorgeous cop, seems interested. While flattered, Travis knows if his secrets are revealed, Bo won't want to have a damn thing to do with the likes of Travis Boone.

IS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP

From the moment he saw the new blue-eyed cook at Brighton's diner, Bo Mason fell. Hard. And while getting close to Travis Boone has been like gentling a terrified animal, Bo knows there's a special person hiding behind those small smiles and closely guarded secrets. Slowly, Bo starts to peel back the layers cocooning Travis and learns the heart of an angel beats inside the most beautiful man Bo has ever known.





Grady
Boys of Brighton Book 7

WATCH OUT FOR


After coming out, Grady Reynolds is disowned by his family, and is forced to leave his job in the Dallas PD. Becoming an officer in the small town of Brighton, Grady has to start over while feeling adrift and alone. When he meets firefighter Ben Mason, life takes a sudden, happy turn until Ben tells Grady they have to keep their relationship on the DL. After months of loving a man who thinks of him as no more than a booty call, Grady has had enough and wants out.

THE WRECKING BALL

Ben Mason loves Grady Reynolds like crazy. But Ben can't tell his lover how he feels. He can't acknowledge him in public. He can't claim him as his own. Ben wants to tell Grady the truth, but the danger in that is deadly, and Ben won't risk it. But peril and menace find Grady anyway, and Ben's lies and deception come crashing down around him. Just when he thinks he's lost everything, he learns that a love as deep as theirs can survive anything.





Vincent
Boys of Brighton Book 8

ONLY THE STRONG


When he moved to Brighton, novelist Tristan Michaels was thrilled to leave his past behind. Trauma and danger had shattered his world and almost ruined his life. When everything finally seems to be settling down, he becomes embroiled in his best friend’s drama, which leads to more danger and…Vincent. And while love at first sight had been the stuff of Tristan’s books, when he meets Vincent fantasy became reality.

SURVIVE

Vincent Greyson has spent his life fighting for what’s right, first as a Navy Seal, and now as a member of the elite team known as the Sentinels. When he meets Tristan Michaels, Vincent knows his heart will always belong to this magnetic, special man. But love and patience is tested when horrible fates keep befalling Tristan, and Vincent vows that he’d do anything for his love, even leave the Sentinels.





Shadow
Boys of Brighton Book 9

THE MOST DIFFICULT THING TO DO…


Imagine knowing your family hates you and has no problem sending you away to be abused – to die alone. Randy Reynolds was living that reality until he was saved by a man called Shadow. What Randy learned about himself and the people who were supposed to love him was nothing short of horrific. What he found with the Sentinels and Shadow was everything miraculous.

IS FACE THE TRUTH

Jake Kennedy’s past haunts him. Ghosts drove him into the shadows until he became Shadow. Unseen and not really there, he lived his life without any connections but for the Sentinels, the team that saved him from oblivion. Then a mission changed his life and forced him to shed the shroud that kept his heart from feeling. Now, for Randy Reynolds, Jake will come out of the shadows, he’ll be present and whole instead of the man who had kept himself hidden for twenty years.

Melissa's Menagerie by Lori Hoopengardner

After the death of her parents, Melissa was on her own to carry on her family's secret. She was lonely, scared and busy. That is until she found some people she could trust. Friendships and more just seemed to happen.


The Rainbow Truck by Jeremy Simons

On the backroads of Louisiana, the unthinkable happened to Melissa. A truck tried to run her off the road. She could have let it go, but she was too proud for that. Besides, its color intrigued her. Oh yeah, and the blood on the tailgate.

She and Scott followed it to a secluded camp where their fortunes were forever sealed. She had to fight. She had to stand on her own two feet. She had to...survive.

But could it be that easy? Find out in The Rainbow Truck.

Unbound Wonder by Niki Livingston

Melissa’s past doesn’t define her and she refuses to allow her teenage trauma to hold her down. Believing in herself when no one else did, she became an instant fame in the music industry. And with the public eye on her, it wasn’t a surprise when she attracted a male admirer who didn’t have her best interest at heart. Another man who only craved to control and own her.

Now she must face her fears, both known and unknown, in order to gain the strength to battle the seemingly never-ending storm threatening her very existence. Rising to face her foes is only the beginning to taking back her power.


Lovelight by B. Tolentino

Blind but never felt unwanted, Melissa Chaplin lives peacefully in New Hampshire with her mother. Wanting to make progress in her life, she decides to take a step forward by applying for a part-time job only to be rejected as soon as she receives the phone call she was so excited about. Suddenly, the bruising pain of frustration of being visually impaired envelopes her, causing her to take a huge leap of faith by agreeing to be a patient to a doctor from Germany she meets for the first time.



Running from Ghosts by Cam Johns
Not telling the whole truth is the same as lying. It turns out, withholding secrets is more dangerous than being honest with the one you love. At least that’s what Melissa has come to realize. Now being forced to face her deceptions head on as the ghosts of her past come back to haunt her - threatening the life she has finally built - Melissa has to find a way to confront her dishonesty without losing the love of her life.

Onus by Sonya Jesus

Oliver: In onus memoria. I had it engraved on his tombstone so that when I went to visit, I could remember Ben died because I failed to protect him. In my onus, I let guilt corrode through any attempt at happiness. I let the blame overwhelm me because I deserved to be punished... He died because I wasn't watching.





Melissa by Davina Purnell
Oliver's been coming to group sessions for a year and half now. I wish I could say he's slowly getting better, but he's shown no progress and it worries me. I don't know how to break through to him or if he even wants me to, but I care about him too much not to try.

Till Death by Bella Emy

Happily Ever After.

That's what Mel thought she had found the day she met Brad.

Now, married for years with their two children, Austin and Brayden, Mel fears for their life. The man she once knew who had been so loving, supporting and caring has turned into a drunk, alcoholic, abusive husband and father, stopping at nothing to get his point across.
Will Mel be able to overcome her dread of living huddled up in a corner, fearing for her life and that of her sons, or will Brad place his hands on her one last and final time?



Witch’s Heart by Melanie Rodriguez

Melissa is a sophomore at the prestigious Circe Academy, a school that grooms only the finest of witches and warlocks. She finds herself an outcast to most of her peers and professors due to her half-human side. Wanting nothing more than to be a fully-fledged witch, she enlists the help of the wily and sarcastic spirit fox, Vic, who too has his own agenda. In order to retrieve the lost half of magic that she needs to accomplish her goal, Melissa must locate the human the old ritual demands she needs and must steal their “heart.” When she realizes who that human is, Melissa finds herself in a bind: does she complete her goal and fulfill her pact with Vic or does she let the special human go and continue to live her outcast life without the respect she deserves?


Choices Made by Justina Luther

At the age of 26 I, Melissa Leighton, thought I had my priorities right. I worked hard, kept my eye on my goals, and loved my mom and twin sister with all my heart. I broke my back to make us all proud and be the first in my family to become a doctor. The funny thing about life is, every choice we make changes something and the choices I made threatened to change everything.


My Shadow by Sheri Chapman
Melissa is drawn to wrong side of the law. For now, she contents her intrigue by pitting herself against the police. Through her own vices, she must figure out crimes before they can. Not only does it inspire her writing career, but it also gives her life an exciting edge. However, Melissa is being watched. The innovative woman must determine if her life in endanger before it’s too late…

From the Ashes by Sarah Stein
How far would you go to survive?

Melissa was the perfect child. She never complained, did amazing in school and made her parents happy. Or so she thought. Everything changed when she was told to pack her bags, and leave with a man she’s never met. But all is not what it seems as she has to fight not to lose herself in his custody.

Black Dog Deck The Halls + Giveaway



Black Dog: A Christmas Story
Knights of Black Swan
Book Thirteen
Victoria Danann

Genre: paranormal fantasy

Publisher: 7th House,
Imprint of Andromeda LLC     

Date of Publication: December 22, 2018

ASIN: B07JBK9DNR

Number of pages: 201
Word Count: 43k

Cover Artist: Victoria Danann

Book Description:

Old dogs tell no tales.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Victoria Danann, brings a moving triumph-over-darkness story to the world of Black Swan.

The Hawking family is at home at the Northern Ireland farm and wolf-dog kennel for Yuletide when Blackie goes missing. Instead of a joyous celebration of family and friends, Ram's mate and elflings are beside themselves with fear and worry. As Song and Litha bring their respective paranormal abilities to aid in the search, the story takes a turn into the dark world of dogfighting and the abduction of adult male dogs matching the profile of fighters.

Black Swan rarely gets involved in the mundane affairs of the world because it's not their purpose, mission, or directive. But when Simon's office is drowned in messages from retired knights insisting that Blackie is unofficially one of them and that an exception must be made, he relents and orders available personnel to assist B Team with a rundown.





Blackie climbed the hill to his favorite spot. He didn’t trot or run, as he’d been known to do in his younger days. He ambled, telling himself that he could trot or run if he was so inclined. He just didn’t feel like it that minute.
The hill above the Laiken kennel and farm had the very best view of the surroundings. When he was there he could imagine himself to be protector of all he surveyed; his people, the land, the wolf dogs.
There’d been a light snow the day before, but the morning’s bright sun had melted a small clearing that formed a patch of bright green grass. Bright sun was unusual in northern Ireland at that time of year, but dogs don’t analyze changes in weather or atmospheric conditions. They simply accept what is and adapt as best they can. When the sun shines warm on old bones, they accept it.
After turning in a circle three times around the patch of green, Blackie sunk down into a sphinx pose and indulged himself in a satisfied sigh.
It’s impossible to know what dogs do or do not remember. Perhaps he had crystal clear memories of his adoption by The Order of the Black Swan and recalled every detail of every adversity and adventure. Perhaps there was a vague recollection of his history. Who can say?
He sat on the hill overseeing his farm. Perhaps old dogs do what old people do. They divide their reveries between recollection and remorse. Because even the best of us, human or dog, could have done things better. If there was an exception to that, it would be Blackie. Because he had never failed to give his whole heart and effort to any given task in any given moment. Surely dogs as smart as Blackie are like humans, recalling this corner of a moment or that fragment of a song at odd and inexplicable times.
To Helm, Blackie was as constant as was the idea of his father, Sir Rammel Aelshelm Hawking, Black Swan Knight Emeritus and Prince of Ireland, and his mother, Lady Elora Laiken, Black Swan Knight Emeritus, former Princess of Britannia, Stagsnare Dimension.
Perhaps his earliest memory was a black muzzle shoved between the bars of his baby bed resting on the sheet-covered mattress, intelligent brown eyes full of light and staring at him intently like he was the most precious thing in the universe. At fourteen he’d never confronted the prospect of surviving Blackie. He’d never considered it and simply couldn’t imagine the world without the big black dog.

When undertaker brothers Corran and Rigan Valmonde became outlaw monster hunters and fled beyond the walls of Ravenwood, they thought they had defeated the source of the abominations that killed so many of their friends and loved ones. But the more successful they become at destroying the creatures, the more they realize a greater evil is at work – larger and more monstrous than they ever could imagine…

Read an Excerpt:

A powerfully built creature crouched in the middle of the workshop, muscles tensed to fight. The monster stood, revealing itself to be the height of a tall man, but more powerfully built. Leathery gray skin with patches of sparse brown hair covered its naked body. Its arms were muscled like a dockhand, with equally massive thighs. The feet looked like the paws of a big dog, while the hands had thick fingers that ended in claws. The wolf-like face and head and the four red eyes confirmed Rigan’s guess. Capcaun.

Training and practice had Rigan moving left while Corran went right. The capcaun tracked them both, showing no sign of fear. Rigan grounded his magic, calmed his thoughts, and raised one hand, focusing all his will on his intention.

A stream of fire lanced from his hand, striking the capcaun in the chest. Rigan set his jaw and narrowed his gaze, widening the flame jet, forcing it to burn hotter. The smell of burning hair filled the workshop, and the capcaun roared in anger, but though its skin blistered and charred, the fire did not destroy him.

Rigan’s heart pounded in his chest. They had agreed to lead with their strongest defense, seeing no reason to get hurt working up to a magical assault. He knew with certainty that the fire would have immolated a normal man, and more than one type of monster would have fallen to the flames as well. Yet the capcaun stood before them.
