Blog Tour + GIVEAWAY: MJ O’Shea – Rising Sun

New Seattle 2199

Castor Kovalenko, socialite and high ranking member of the Dragon Triad, is worried about his cousin, Lynx. He’s been missing for weeks and there have been rumors circling the city, rumors that he’s been taken hostage by the hacker thief Yoru Katana. Castor needs to find his cousin before it’s too late. He’s willing to do nearly anything to bring Lynx to safety.

Jaffa Sharp is trying to stay alive. It’s not easy when the only thing you’ve ever learned to do is steal. Even harder when he keeps running into one annoying Dragon prince who keeps trying to get him arrested.

When Castor uses Jaffa to get to his cousin and the thief Katana, they both learn that nothing is as it seemed, including Lynx and Katana himself. Castor and Jaffa soon become involved in a plot to take the city back from the villainous triads. They find themselves fighting the people they thought were their leaders — and fighting an attraction stronger than either of them have felt before. Nothing is certain in the precarious new world they find themselves in: Life, death, friend, enemy, and the most uncertain thing of all…love

* * * *

In this section Jaffa, our wily thief, has already had one close call with Castor Kovalenko and managed to escape by the skin of his teeth. He has to go back to the market, though. Without the food and money he finds there, he and his two young roommates will starve. It doesn’t look like his luck will carry him through a second encounter with Kovalenko though…

 Excerpt:

The market was no less crowded than it was on any other day, filled with the same array of faces and voices, smells and sounds. Jaffa was comforted by the familiarity. He’d been there so many times, done the same things over and over again. It was a routine he could do with his eyes closed. But he knew at the same time it was never a good idea to get too comfortable. Comfortable usually ended with a hefty stint in prison or death—two unfortunate possibilities that Jaffa seemed to encounter in his line of work far more than he’d like to.

After a few minutes, he had a perfect target in sight—a loud, blustery merchant with a fat stomach and bulging hip purses. Jaffa figured he and the girls could eat off the contents of one of those purses for months. He crept closer, nonchalant, trying to blend in with the crowd, and slowly got into place between two stalls right next to where the merchant was spouting off something about his new bamboo garden. Jaffa reached out with his knife, small but sharp enough to cut through any strap or cord without tugging. He nearly had it and….

“You again!”

A strong arm grabbed his midsection from behind. Jaffa struggled, but he was whisked into the back passageway of the market, away from the eyes of the public. He and his captor were surrounded by crates and carts full of packing material. Nobody would see if something happened to him. Didn’t matter if they did. Nobody cared about the likes of Jaffa Sharp.

“Didn’t you learn last time?”

Learn? The only lesson Jaffa had ever learned was that if he didn’t steal, he and the girls couldn’t eat. He struggled in the strong grip, turning to see who had him. He sighed when he caught sight of the flame-red hair and pale skin quickly turning an angry shade of pink. Of course. Only he would have the bad fortune of running into the same highborn jackass twice in one month.

“I wasn’t going to harm anyone,” Jaffa said. “Why’d you stop me? That merchant has plenty more money where that came from.”

He chuckled. The Dragon had the nerve to laugh at Jaffa. “If I’d have let you go, you would already be in shackles. Dorian Cornelius might be stuffed and oblivious, but his head of security is not. Best to stay away from him.”

“I will. I promise. Just let me go.”

Jaffa’s protestations earned more laughter. Then the Dragon’s grip around his waist tightened. He got a hold of one of Jaffa’s wrists with the other hand, gripping tight so Jaffa couldn’t squirm away. “Time to come with me. I owe the police a bit of a favor.” The Dragon finally let go of Jaffa’s waist but began to pull him along, not very gently, by the wrist.

Jaffa panicked. The girls would never know what happened to him. He’d probably get conscripted into a work crew and disappear somewhere in a smelly garbage dump in Bottom City. He said the first thing that came to his mind.

“You don’t want to do anything to me. I’ll be missed if I’m gone.”

“By who?” The dragon stopped walking and turned, one vibrant red eyebrow lifted.

Jaffa thought fast. Who were all the pretty Cloud Level richies afraid of? “Yoru Katana,” he spit out desperately. “I work for Katana. If I disappear, he’ll find out who’s responsible and take revenge. I doubt it’ll be pleasant.”

Jaffa was pleased with himself. At least until the Dragon smiled. “Well, that works out perfectly if I do say so. I’d like to discuss a few things with this Katana person myself. Take me to him.”

Awww, seriously? Shit.

“I don’t—I’m not sure where to find him.”

The Dragon’s smile went sly. “You said you worked for him. You have to have some method of contact. I’m a very patient man. I can wait.”

Jaffa sighed. He’d gotten himself into it this time, hadn’t he? “Fine. I’ll take you to Katana. We’re going to have to go to Bottom City.” Maybe the thought of Bottom City would be enough to turn off the Dragon. Wouldn’t want that perfect skin to get clogged up by the dirty Bottom City steam, would he?

“I figured as much. That’s not a problem.”

Of course he’s okay with it. Jaffa tried not to panic visibly.

“We’re going to take a little detour to pick up my brother. Then I’m ready to go. Do whatever you need to do to contact your boss. I’m fairly sure you know what will happen to you if you’re not successful.”

Jaffa cursed to himself. How was he supposed to produce someone nobody had ever seen? He hoped he could get the two high-level morons to Bottom City and lose them. This Dragon seemed quite a bit more wily than most, but he was still rich, and most likely, that meant stupid enough for Jaffa to trick.

He hoped.

Sounds good doesn’t it? How about an excerpt?

EXCERPT FROM TRAPPED BY CARIS ROANE

Alesia opened her eyes, uncertain what had awakened her. For a moment, she wasn’t even sure where she was.

She looked around and recognized Zephyr’s bedroom, but he was no longer in bed with her. Glancing at the open door of the bathroom, she was pretty sure he wasn’t in there either.

Exhaustion crowded her and her heart seemed to be laboring in her chest. She’d been feeling like this a lot in recent weeks, especially when Zephyr would show up last thing at night to take her home. A couple of times, she’d almost offered to feed him just because she felt certain she’d feel better if she opened a vein for him.

She sat up and rubbed her chest.

Then she heard his voice. “You can’t come? Are you sure?” A pause. “No, that’s okay. I’ll call someone else.” A heavy groan followed.

Her senses came alert and her drowsiness disappeared.

Zeph was in trouble. She could feel it now.

She slipped from bed, wearing a long t-shirt of his that hit her mid-thigh.

She hurried into the living room, took one look at his pallor, and made a quick decision. “Zeph, you need to feed, as in now.”

He looked up at her, his arms around his stomach, his body bent over in pain. His blue eyes had a wild, almost feverish appearance.

“Oh, dear sweet Goddess, why didn’t you reach for me? Damnit, you’re the most stubborn man.”

She dropped in front of him, and swept her hair away from her throat. “Take what you need.”

He probably couldn’t have stopped if he’d wanted to.

He fell on her, pushing her to the floor, his fangs at her throat, striking to just the right depth. Withdrawing his fangs, he sucked hard, too hard.

She beat at his shoulders. “Zeph, you’ll collapse the vein. Ease back.”

He pulled away and struggled through several deep breaths. He resumed, more gently this time, and her blood began to flow.

She patted his back. “Better. Much better. You’re okay. You’ll be okay. You’ll be fine.”

He was so close to death, the man who had saved her life just a few hours earlier.

She’d never fed a vampire before, but after about a minute, she began to experience an extraordinary euphoria, like nothing she’d ever known before. Her heart felt light and free. She realized she hadn’t truly felt normal in weeks.

Now that she did, she rubbed his shoulders but wanted more than just the feel of the flannel beneath her hands.

She caressed his bare neck, and slipped her fingers down his back, savoring his warm skin. Her hips arched against him and that’s when she felt that he was fully aroused, a very natural state for a vampire, lying on top of a woman and taking from her throat.

He groaned, and though he continued to nurse at her throat, he pathed. Don’t do that, Alesia. I won’t be able to control myself. Damn all the elf lords, but your blood has the flavor of berries steeped in wine. I’ve never tasted anything like this in my life. And the power that comes with each hit. I feel like I could do anything.

Maybe it was his voice in her head, or maybe her own latent desire for the man, but desire flooded her like a sudden tsunami. She pulled away from him and started tearing at his pajamas.

Blog Tour + GIVEAWAY: When Love Comes to Town by Jacob Z. Flores

Brody O’Shea isn’t looking for much, just a hot guy with a decent job, who is sane and doesn’t have kids. The son of a former rock star, Brody has lived through the pain of bankruptcy and bad parenting, and he doesn’t want to experience it again. As a reformed horndog, he wants the security and stability of a relationship. But almost every guy he meets seems satisfied with Mr. Right Now, and he wants to find Mr. Right—now!

The only men Eric Vasquez chases are criminals. As a deputy and single father, he has no need for a relationship after his last one ended disastrously. He lives for and through Maddie, his nine-year-old daughter. Everything else is a needless distraction, but distraction is what Eric gets when he comes to Provincetown to attend the wedding between his cousin Van and the man of his dreams.

When Brody and Eric meet, what they want and what they find conflict. An ocean of expectations separates them. If they cannot move past their reservations to reach each other’s shores, they might miss the boat when love comes to town.

When Love Comes to Town (Provincetown: Book Four)

Author: Jacob Z. Flores

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Genre: M/M Contemporary

Release Date: April 8, 2014

Dreamspinner

Excerpt:

Brody had wanted answers to his questions, but how was he supposed to ask them? Accusing a nine-year-old girl of having an ulterior motive wouldn’t earn him any brownie points, and since Maddie was always at their side, he couldn’t very well ask Eric what Maddie’s questions had been about.

He had no choice but to leave them unanswered. At least for the time being.

Maddie’s screech from down the beach got his attention. Right now, her father was chasing her around, trying to catch her and throw her in the water. They’d been playing that game since Maddie had finished asking about marriage, love, and second husbands.

It had come on so suddenly he couldn’t help but see it for what it was—a diversion. But just what was Eric trying to avoid?

“Brody!” Maddie screamed. She zigged while Eric zagged and was able to increase the distance between them. “Help me!”

“I don’t get between a father and his daughter,” he called back. She replied by sticking out her tongue, but unfortunately that little gesture caused her to lose ground. Her father lunged at her and snagged her by her elbow. Eric then hauled her over his shoulder and headed toward the water.

Brody laughed. Whatever the reason for Eric’s sudden interest in tormenting Maddie, it was working. How could he focus on finding answers when the two of them were being so adorable? He really needed to stop that. He’d already accepted that he and Eric weren’t going to happen. They were destined to be friends. That was it. He was going to be here for Eric. Help make him smile. Especially since Eric appeared to be in dire need of a good time.

Suddenly, Maddie rushed past him and sprinted down the beach. How the hell did she get away from Eric? Eric came lumbering after her. He had to do something to come to Maddie’s rescue.

So as Eric ran past him, Brody leaped upon his back. The force unsteadied Eric, who teetered to one side. This caused Brody to fall off Eric and land on his back in the warm sand. Eric tried to catch himself, but the force of Brody’s body first landing on him, then falling off sent Eric into a spin before he crashed on top of him.

In the distance, Maddie’s laughter echoed back to him, but all Brody could focus on was Eric’s heaving body pressed on top of him. His frame fit against him quite comfortably, as if they were missing pieces to each other’s puzzle. Did Eric notice that too? Was that why his amber eyes, which had previously gazed down at him in wide surprise, no longer looked embarrassed? Instead, a sly grin caught the right corner of his mouth and hooked it upward.

Fuck, that was hot! And why did he have to smell so damn good? A heady mixture of sweat and aftershave drifted in the air. Then there were the hot pants of air that blew across Brody’s cheeks. Each exhale fanned a fire that rapidly consumed him from within.

If he didn’t have morenot for his self-control, he’d he would have craned his neck and steal stolen a kiss. But that was completely inappropriate. Especially in front of Maddie.

“I think it may be time to get up,” Brody said. His voice was low and throaty. Did he really need to be speaking with a bedroom voice at the moment? His vocal cords seemed to think so. They were no doubt working in collusion with the erection that took up all the room in his underwear.

Oh great! He had an erection, and Eric was on top of him. There was no way he could hide that. But wait a minute. What was growing in Eric’s shorts?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Jacob Z. Flores lives a double life. During the day, he is a respected college English professor and mid-level administrator. At night and during his summer vacation, he loosens the tie and tosses aside the trendy sports coat to write man on man fiction, where the hard ass assessor of freshmen level composition turns his attention to the firm posteriors and other rigid appendages of the characters in his fictional world.

Summers in Provincetown, Massachusetts, provide Jacob with inspiration for his fiction. The abundance of barely clothed man flesh and daily debauchery stimulates his personal muse. When he isn’t stroking the keyboard, Jacob spends time with his husband, Bruce, their three children, and two dogs, who represent a bright blue blip in an otherwise predominantly red swath in south Texas.

But even as Willa and Shane’s fiery natures draw them together, their pasts threaten to rip them apart. Can Shane give up racing to be with the woman he loves, or will Willa’s quest to resurrect the tough-talking, no-shit-taking girl she used to be destroy any hope of a future together?

For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…

As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity

Colonial Salem

The moment the stranger’s dark eyes meet hers, Anne Scudder’s world is immediately overthrown by chaos. That single flare of desire is immediate, driving away all notions of propriety. Instead, Anne is consumed with sinful thoughts – ones that no unmarried girl should ever have for a man who isn’t her husband…
But Josiah Cromwell is no stranger.

It’s been six years since Josiah stole kisses from Anne, his best friend’s younger sister. Six years since Josiah left after his best friend’s death, burdened by the knowledge that he was responsible for destroying Anne’s family. Now he’s returned to claim the woman he can’t live without. But even as their desire threatens to consume them both – body and soul – the dark workings of suspicion and witchcraft are afoot.

Because in Salem, too much passion can lead a woman to ruin… and condemned to death.

Victorian Era England…


 As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s will remains strong. If the only way to save her family’s estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction – and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself… But she’s made the first move against a very dangerous opponent… For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it’s his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire – even if she means to only marry for his money – would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her… and demands his own satisfaction in return.

She was his for one week only…When a beautiful stranger ducks into his bookshop during a rainstorm, Cale Cameron, well-known rake, is instantly attracted to her.

Elizabeth, Lady Thornhill, is restless and hungers for something she cannot name. Society would never accept a countess and a mere bookseller, so they agree to a one week affair to indulge their desire.

As their passion ignites and their connection grows, Elizabeth threatens the one thing Cale has protected above all else—his heart. Letting her go is the only solution…and the one thing he is not prepared to do.

Cover reveal: Call Me Maybe by Brien Michaels

 

Sylvester “Sly” Nelson has made the mistake of staying on campus during summer vacation. With the potential of extra credits and more cash, it could be the best summer ever. But Sexy College Studs has been in the grips of a madman for months, and more guys have quit than Sly cares to think about. So this summer, staying behind means training the next generation.

Adam Rivera is an incoming freshman with a hard-on that won’t quit, so what better job is there for him than getting guys off over the phone? But once he gets a load of his new trainer, the only person he’s worried about getting off is Sylvester. Sly puts up more of a fight than Adam had anticipated, though, until one night at a frat party changes everything.

For the first time in a long time, Adam and Sylvester both have everything they want, but it’s not easy keeping their relationship a secret from their co-workers with the Caller stalking them, threatening exposure at every turn. Everyone just wants his reign of terror to be over. But if he has his way, the end of Sexy College Studs itself could be closer than they think.
