Saturday's News Roundup

Two covers and a review today!

First, the review.
Chasing Silver.
Fallen Angel Reviews.
Reviewed by: Stephanie B.
Rating: 5 Angels out of 5 Angels. A FAR Recommended Read.

Chasing Silver by Jamie Craig is a marvelously inventive, time-traveling, suspenseful, steamy romance. The main characters are rough around the edges, distrustful, take the law as advisement, yet are loyal and caring deep down under their prickly skin if they choose to befriend someone. Their situation is impossible, how can someone from the future function in the present time frame and how can someone from now understand the differences inherent in the time differential? And yet, Ms. Craig makes the impossible seem obtainable. The story is non-stop action from page one and keeps the reader on their toes trying to figure out how Remy and Nathan can possible make this work if they even survive all the people who seem intent on harming them. Oh and when Remy and Nathan decide to take their relationship further their love scenes are steamy yet sensual. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is closure for most of the elements to this story and yet Ms. Craig has left a perfect set up for a sequel. And as hinted, at the end of the book, there is a teaser for a sequel. I can’t wait for the sequel to be released; it should be very good book too! I highly recommend Chasing Silver for fans of gritty and steamy romantic suspense, time-travel, or even science fiction!

We received our cover for A Little Bit Bewitched as well.

It’s nearly love at first sight for Professor Daniel Meyers when he meets his associate’s, Charles Cowling, American assistant, Lucy Hensen. She enchants him, but he soon learns that when it comes to Lucy, enchanting is not merely hyperbole. A very powerful witch, she’s more than just Charles Cowling’s assistant. She’s his initiate in his coven. And his lover. If that wasn’t complicated enough for Daniel, he finds himself fantasizing about Charles—and Charles’ mouth—at the strangest times.

When Lucy and Charles invite him to a coven meeting, he is curious enough to agree. There he discovers his own latent magical abilities. But he wants more from Lucy and Charles than a night of magic. In fact, he’s more than a little bit bewitched by both of them.

And we also received our cover for A Hidden Beauty.

A student of letters, Micah Yardley wants one thing: To meet Jefferson Dering, a poet he’s long admired from afar. After hearing his idol speak at Harvard, Micah travels to Jefferson’s home in Wroxham, entertaining visions of discussing poetry over dinner and drinks. What he experiences exceeds anything he ever anticipated.

Jefferson finds Micah mesmerizing, passionate, everything he has ever wanted. But ten years earlier, caught in a compromising position with another young man, he exiled himself from Boston and proper society. Now Jefferson represses his desire out of respect for Micah, but his tumultuous emotions stir the restless ghost of Wroxham church—with deadly consequences.

Amid denial, desire, and the villagers rising panic, a single kiss is enough to change the course of their lives…and ignite the flame that could fulfill a generations-old promise.

We also submitted the fourth book in our gay novella series, Calendar Boys. It's called April--Out of the Storm and here's the blurb

When it rains, it pours. Television weatherman Nick Lau’s romantic weekend with his boyfriend, Austin, ends in disaster before it even has the chance to begin. Austin dumps him and leaves their cabin just as the heavens open and soon the mountain is awash in dangerous flash floods.

Jay Archer just wants to escort the tourists off the mountain and to safety. But instead, he finds himself stranded in a small cabin with the very attractive Nick Lau. He seeks sanctuary with Nick. Soon Nick returns the favor by seeking a different kind of sanctuary in Jay’s arms.
