You’re nobody until some bunny loves you #shifter #romance @mlrpress

Can a werewolf hunter and a bunny shifter find love in Illinois? To me the combo is somewhat mind boggling – though kind of cute! – but the story has gotten some great reviews on Goodreads.

I loved this! I liked the first book in the Hoppity Shifter series, but I think I liked this one even better. Justin melted my heart. He was the perfect blend of innocent and fierce, confused and protective.

I wouldn’t say this is quite insta-love, but it borders on the cusp. Nevertheless, the author is able to weave in character backstory among a background of shifter politics, in a book that’s only about 30K words. Pretty impressive. I’d love to know more about shifter politics and dynamics in future books.

It was cute, it was sweet, it was funny. It’s a great, low-angst, summertime read, and we even get a peek into how the MC’s from Chasing His Cottontail (book 1) are doing.

This sounds like a perfect beach read. It’s funny, cute and not overly dramatic. Ah, young love. Let’s hear it for the cottontail men! Here is the cover:

This book is on sale now at Amazon, MLR Press and all other ebook outlets.

Enjoy! And like mom said, always eat your carrots!


Hop for Visibility, Awareness and Equality #GLBTQ #giveaways


Main Page:

Welcome friends as we again celebrate authors and readers of works featuring pairings of all colors of the rainbow.

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. We seek to keep readers and authors safe, help them stay visible and show our support for the rainbow community.

I’ve worked with many publishers who feature and promote these kinds of stories but MLR Press is my pick for the best. Founded by author Laura Baumbach, the company was an early promoter of gay romance and is still going strong today. Kudos to Laura for her recent success:

RWA has formally granted MLR Press, and its imprints, status as a Qualifying

That translates to we meet their professional standards and they accept
us, our authors and our work as legitimate members of the official
romance writing community.

This brings more visibility, awareness and equality – not to mention legitimacy – to the genre Laura has worked so tirelessly to promote. I hope that many other publishers are able to follow suit and join the ranks of the “mainstream” publishing industry since the stories – whether asexual, gay, lesbian, Bi, trans, queer, and more – illustrate what to us authors has already been apparent: Love knows no boundaries.

I’m proud to be an MLR Press author!

A Soldier for Christmas

Trent returns from Iraq intent on claiming the man he kissed five years ago, only to find the war left a powerful obstacle in his way.

Cameron was sixteen when the hunky Trent Anderson kissed him and spoiled him for all other men. The next day, Trent left for a tour of duty in the Middle East without so much as a wave goodbye. When Trent returns five years later, he’s a changed man. Can Cameron put aside his long-held fantasies and accept the flawed solider he’s always wanted for Christmas?

Trent Anderson served for four years in the U.S. Army and then signed up for one more as a security contractor. He bears no physical scars from Iraq, but he secretly fights an invisible enemy. A sound, a look, a situation can trigger a flashback and send him right back into combat mode. When Cameron’s attacked, his PTSD escalates, and Trent must get help or else forfeit the man he left behind forever.

And now back to our #M/M #gay romance programming… #soldiers #military

Muscled Shirtless Soldier in Camouflage Pants and Black Shoes on the Beach Sand

Doesn’t he look lonely?

I have been neglecting my soldiers. Poor fellows! So I thought it was time to do a post about Trent and Derek, the two ex-Army characters from A Soldier for Christmas and Rescuing Kyle. What do they have in common and how did they end up with their own stories?

RescuingKyle2_WDIn Rescuing Kyle, Derek is still in recovery from the events that he witnessed in the Middle East. He keeps to himself and has definitely forgotten how to laugh.

He first sees Kyle in a dark alley, being beaten by two men. He comes to Kyle’s rescue – of course! – and against his better judgement, takes the homeless kid home with him.

It isn’t long afterward that Derek rediscovers how to have a little fun in life….



In A Soldier for Christmas, Trent is the quintessential strong, silent type. He shows upASoldierforChristmas_Lefoy_KJacen unannounced at his former BFF’s pre-Christmas party and there he sees Cameron, the young man he left behind years ago because he was simply too young at the time.

It isn’t long before he’s trying to look out for the guy, even though just being in his presence is almost too much sensory overload for Trent, who suffers from PTSD. For him, it’s better to feel nothing than to risk over stimulation. Unfortunately, a lot of stimulation is what’s going to happen when these two get together!

Interestingly enough, when Cameron is in danger, Trent comes to the rescue even at the loss of precious control. What’s he to do when all his barriers are down the man he’s denied himself wants him anyway? Give in to the need, of course!

So these two soldiers do find a way to let love and romance and sex back into their lives. The road to get there is choppy and uneven, and not as nice and tidy as they’d like. There are some sad and some scary moments for them, and for the younger men who want them, some growing up to do. But for everyone it’s well worth it!
