Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone, and if you are participating in the Valentine Author Blog Hop and this is your first time visiting with me, welcome!
I am thrilled today to finally be releasing the anthology Falling Hard, featuring nine of my best short MM romances in one book. It’s 234 pages of sweet and often steamy fun. Because most of the pieces were previously published as stand-alone ebooks by Torquere Press, I’m offering a special introductory price so that readers who have already bought one or two of the stories individually will still end up with a good deal. With that in mind, I have priced it at half off, or just $2.99 (US currency), through the end of the blog tour—the same price that some of these stories were being offered for individually under Torquere!
Here are just a few of the stories in Falling Hard:
- Loggerhead — Soon after they fall in love, Jake makes Eric a promise inspired by an old track uniform. But demanding work schedules at Jake’s four-star restaurant and Eric’s newspaper keep them from following through. Six years later, they take the honeymoon they never had, heading to the Florida coast in search of sea turtles—and rekindling their passion for each other in the process.
- Reading the Signs — The only thing twenty-three-year-old Theo De Jong expects when he enrolls in a summer school for linguists in New Mexico is to get more ideas for his master’s thesis in Dutch Sign Language. But then he meets the American sign language expert Alfonso Grossman, and sparks fly.
- Ghost of a Chance — When shy Jeremy Anderson meets mysterious and dapper Frank at his spooky old university library, their connection is instant. Their romance waxes with the full moon—but just as quickly, Frank’s interest seems to wane. He insists that he loves spending time with Jeremy, but then why does he keep Jeremy at arm’s length?
- Born of Fire — The fairies on Ireland’s north coast are notorious for kidnapping, and Aodhán of County Donegal has the scars to prove it. When the fairies abduct the handsome youth Cainnech, Aodhán seeks to free him—but risks losing his health and Cainnech in the process.
To celebrate the release of Falling Hard, I’m running a giveaway for one of my short romances that is not in the anthology: Love Unmasked, a lighthearted romance about Aaron Loreto, a gay man who’s been unlucky in love because he occasionally turns into a raccoon. For some reason, his ex-boyfriend didn’t like the way he’d spend all night digging through the trash. But somewhere out there is a guy who’s more understanding, and Aaron might just have found him at his favorite coffeeshop.
Falling Hard is currently available worldwide through the secure downloading platform PayHip, and should start rolling out at your favorite online booksellers later today. You can read a preview and find the most current buy links at by Falling Hard book page.
