~Synopsis~

The brilliant but brooding new doctor encounters Copper Point’s sunny nurse-next-door… and nothing can stand in the way of this romance.
Dr. Hong-Wei Wu has come to Copper Point, Wisconsin, after the pressures of a high-powered residency burned him out of his career before he started. Ashamed of letting his family down after all they’ve done for him, he plans to live a quiet life as a simple surgeon in this tiny northern town. His plans, however, don’t include his outgoing, kind, and attractive surgical nurse, Simon Lane.
Simon wasn’t ready for the new surgeon to be a handsome charmer who keeps asking him for help getting settled and who woos him with amazing Taiwanese dishes. There’s no question—Dr. Wu is flirting with him, and Simon is flirting back. The problem is, St. Ann’s has a strict no-dating policy between staff, which means their romance is off the table… unless they bend the rules.
But a romance that keeps them—literally—in the closet can’t lead to happy ever after. Simon doesn’t want to stay a secret, and Hong-Wei doesn’t want to keep himself removed from life, not anymore. To secure their happiness, they’ll have to change the administration’s mind. But what other secrets will they uncover along the way, about Copper Point… and about each other?

They never knew what hit them. 
A hooker with a heart, falling for a Vice cop? This is no Hollywood movie, and if they want a happily ever after, it’s not going to be easy.
Detective Randy Michaels is back with Vice, working to help NYC crack down on its prostitution problem. When he suspects Jesse Bryant of soliciting, Randy is torn between duty and his knowledge of what put Jesse on the streets. Jesse is clearly struggling, and he isn’t the only one. Recent events have forced Randy to question his sexuality, and a shocking encounter with Jesse plunges him into a crisis of conscience.
Jesse didn’t think his life could get any worse. His family cut all support, his education is on hold, and he’s surviving the only way he knows—selling himself on the streets. Of all the people who could have offered him a helping hand, why did it have to be Randy?
Two men carrying their own personal burdens: How long will it take them to realize that what they really need is each other?

~Synopsis~

All Remy Harker wants is a fresh start. 
Well, maybe that’s what he tells himself as he rolls up to his nice new house, in the nice little neighborhood, in a town where nobody knows his name. 
He’s surrounded by friendly neighbors and a white picket fence. The ugly pink carpet might drive him to insanity, and he can’t stop wondering where the old lady who lived there before him died—but it’s nice. 
And if he puts his mind to it, he can be anything—or anyone—he wants to be. He can be nice too. At least, he thinks he can until he lays eyes on his next-door neighbor. 
Luke Boucher is nice. 
And quiet. 
And perfect. 
It doesn’t take long for Remy to insinuate himself into Luke’s life. A camera here, a break-in there. 
– It’s not really stalking if you love someone, is it? – 
But when Remy’s plan to make a good impression goes to hell, he ends up over his head in more ways than one. Then things aren’t quite so nice anymore. 
– It’s not really murder if you love someone, is it? –
Loving your neighbor isn’t so easy when you’re the devil next door.

~Synopsis~

— One wrong turn. One right man. —
Colin. Rule-follower. Future doctor. Witness to murder. Captive.
Taron. Survivalist. Mute. Murderer. Captor.
Like every other weekend, Colin is on his way home from university, but he’s taunted by the notion that he never takes risks in life and always follows the beaten path. On impulse, he decides to take a different route. Just this one time. What he doesn’t realize is that it’s the last time he has a choice.
He ends up taking a detour into the darkest pit of horror, abducted by a silent, imposing man with a blood-stained axe. But what seems like his worst nightmare might just prove to be a path to the kind of freedom Colin never knew existed. 
Taron has lived alone for years. His land, his rules. He’d given up on company long ago. After all, attachment is a liability. He deals with his problems on his own, but the night he needs to dispose of an enemy, he ends up with a witness to his crime.
The last thing Taron needs is a nuisance of a captive. Colin doesn’t deserve death for setting foot on Taron’s land, but keeping him isn’t optimal either. It’s only when he finds out the city boy is gay that an altogether different option arises. One that isn’t right, yet tempts him every time Colin’s pretty eyes glare at him from the cage.
“When Taron looped the heavy metal collar around the slender neck and closed the padlock, his body throbbed with the excitement of knowing he owned this boy.
Was it wrong? Yes, yes it was.
Was it so, so good? Definitely.”

~Synopsis~

Stetson Major and Curtis Traynor are about as opposite as two cowboys can get. Stetson is a rancher, tied to the land he loves in Taos, New Mexico, while Curtis is a rodeo cowboy whose wanderlust never could be tamed. 
But now Stetson’s momma is dying of Alzheimer’s, and she can’t remember that Curtis hasn’t been Stetson’s boyfriend for a long time. Curtis’s absence makes her cry, so Stetson swallows his pride and calls his ex-lover. 
To Curtis, Stetson is the one who got away, the love of his life. And Momma is his friend, so he’s happy to help out. Yet returning to the ranch stirs up all sorts of feelings that, while buried, never really went away. Still, the rodeo nationals are coming up, and Curtis can’t stay… even if he’s starting to want to, especially to support Stetson when he needs it most. 
Stetson and Curtis want to find a place where they both fit, to be there to catch each other when they fall. But family, money problems, and the call of the rodeo circuit might end their second-chance romance before it even gets started.

~Guest Post-BA Tortuga~

Hey y’all! I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and lover of all things western, and I can’t wait to introduce y’all to bull rider Curtis and New Mexico rancher, Stetson. Stetson is caught between a rock and a hard place, and it’s funny, because he calls Curtis and…well, Stetson ends up doing a little saving himself.

Read an Excerpt from Soft Place to Fall
***

Curtis set the alarm on his phone so he wouldn’t sleep in and make Stetson do all the damned work this morning.
He still managed to miss a good many of the chores, judging from the fact that Stetson was gone when he got up and still wasn’t back after he had a shower and tugged on every bit of clothing he owned.
Jesus, was the furnace broke or just….
Fifty. The thermostat was set to fucking fifty.
Curtis stood in the hallway, torn. Stetson had his pride, and obviously he was having trouble making ends meet. That was clear as glass. But damn. Curtis turned it up to sixty-two. Happy medium.
“Shit, it’s bitter out there.” He heard Stetson stomping and clearing his boots of snow, and then he heard Stetson chuckle softly. “You pups hang out and I’ll find everyone a couple more blankets.”
Curtis moved to the kitchen and the coffee maker, which, wow. Ancient. Gross. Okay, he needed to make a trip to Target down in Santa Fe. Was there a Target in Española? He couldn’t remember. “Morning, Roper.”
“Hey, cowboy, you sleep good? Everyone’s fed and snuggled up out there.”
“I did. You need me to help with the dogs?”
“Nah, I’m just going to make sure they’ve got enough to keep warm. Fixin’ to dump snow again this afternoon.”
“It’s amazing up here. Shit, I’d forgotten the winter.” He’d acclimatize again, but right now he needed to carb load and mainline water.
Stetson chuckled for him, then disappeared into Miss Betty’s part of the house and returned with a pile of old blankets. “You want to start coffee, and I’ll bring in some wood.”
“I’m on it. You want pancakes for breakfast?” He knew he’d gotten all the stuff last night.
“Oh, that would be a blessing. Please, thank you.”
“You got it.” Coffee. Pancakes. Chicken sausage. He snagged Stetson for his good morning kiss because he wanted one.
“Oh—” Stetson’s lips were icy, but the kiss wasn’t. Not at all.
No, the contact warmed up real quick, Stetson wrapping those long arms around his neck and holding on. He hummed, a happy noise that kinda surprised him.
He stepped right into the curve of Stetson’s body, holding them tight together. They both tilted their heads the other way, the kiss going deep in another direction.
Jesus. Good morning to him. He worked the buttons of Stetson’s shearling coat open, hunting that tight body that waited for him. Life was short. He was gonna start with dessert first.
“Curtis! It’s morning!”
“Mmm. Broad daylight, even.” He grinned at Stetson, feeling his face stretch with it. “God, I want to lay you out in the sunshine one day, watch you arch for me.”
Stetson moaned, the sound damn near pained.
“You need loving, Roper. You scream for it.”

Much love, y’all,
BA

~Synopsis~

Can a wealthy but bored businessman rescue a tortured musician from his self-imposed purgatory with a scorching kinky romance? 
When Rene Conette attends an intimate performance at a local bar, the guitarist moves him enough that he attempts to go backstage but is stymied by the man’s bodyguard. Putting it down as not meant to be, he goes on with his life only to run into the man again, late at night at a bookstore. 
Gavin Turner used to be a famous musician until an obsessed fan kidnapped and tortured him. Then it came out that he was into the BDSM lifestyle, and the court of public opinion ravaged him. He lost his Master and his self-confidence. Now he hides behind his ink and his bodyguards, who make sure he doesn’t come into contact with anyone or anything he doesn’t want to. Though it’s been years since he satisfied his needs, he doesn’t think he can trust again. 
If Rene can work his way past Gavin’s defenses, they might find they complement each other perfectly.

Thank you to Dirty Books Obsession for hosting me today.

I love starting a new book. I love discovering who the characters are, what the things are that make them unique. I really love writing how they first meet, their first kiss, the first time they make love. It’s all shiny and new and exciting and it gets my writing juices flowing big time.

Some characters just pop for me right from the start in a special way and I know they’re going to be awesome. Rene and Gavin were like this. I knew it the minute Gavin stepped out on stage in nothing but a pair of jeans and his skin that was covered in tattoos. Rene and I both sat up and paid attention when that happened.

Each character comes with their own personalities and traits and quirks too, and those are just as fun to discover. Like music for Gavin. He’s not just a musician, but music drives his life. It’s his breath, you might say. I loved how Rene dialed in on that and instinctively made sure that Gavin always had music around him even when he was visiting Rene’s place.

I hope you love discovering Rene and Gavin, too!

~Guest Post~Andrew Grey~

This story was inspired by the trip to Italy that Dominic and I took last year.  So here are the top 5 things Dominic and I saw on our trip.

1)  The Pantheon in Rome – An incredible building and done that has been standing for nearly 2000 years.

2)  The Sistine Chapel – I craned my neck for as long as they would let me stay to marvel up at Michelangelo’s ceiling and altar piece.

3)  The Duomo in Florence – Dominic and I climbed to the top of the Dome for a breathtaking view.  I’m so proud of Dominic for doing it with me and overcoming part of his fear of heights.

4)  The Uffici in Florence – Renaissance marvels of all kinds.  An amazing experience where you get to get up close with DaVinci.

5)  David – The best butt in marble. And yes, we did walk around back to take a look.

Publisher: Carina Press (Harlequin)
Page Count: 384 pages
Genre(s): M/M, Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2019
Guest Reviewer: ~Dia~
Rating: ✮3.5 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

Everything’s bigger in Alaska, especially the HEAs. Annabeth Albert kicks off the brand-new Frozen Hearts series with Arctic Sun, an opposites-attract romance between a rugged outdoorsman and a smoking hot former male model.
He’s built a quiet life for himself in Alaska. But it doesn’t stand a chance against the unrelenting pull of a man who’s everything he shouldn’t want.

Ex-military mountain man Griffin Barrett likes his solitude. It keeps him from falling back into old habits. Bad habits. He’s fought too hard for his sobriety to lose control now. However, his gig as a wildlife guide presents a new kind of temptation in superhot supermodel River Vale. Nothing the Alaskan wilderness has to offer has ever called to Griffin so badly. And that can only lead to trouble…
River has his own methods for coping. Chasing adventure means always moving forward. Nobody’s ever made him want to stand still—until Griffin. The rugged bush pilot is the very best kind of distraction, but the emotions he stirs up in River feel anything but casual, and he’s in no position to stay put.
With temptation lurking in close quarters, keeping even a shred of distance is a challenge neither’s willing to meet. And the closer Griffin gets to River, the easier it is to ignore every last reason he should run.
-One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!
Warnings-Publisher’s Note: Arctic Sun deals with topics some readers may find difficult, including sobriety and eating disorders.
