Crimson Nights by V.L. Moon & J.T. Cheyanne - Blog Tour


I'm delighted to welcome V.L. Moon and J.T. Cheyanne to my blog today to share all you want to know about their Crimson Nights Saga. Before we get to all the details about the series and Crimson Storm, the third book in the Saga, please take a moment to enjoy this fascinating post about co-writing!    

Guest Post


There’s a lot to be said about co-writing, and mostly for us, it’s turned out to be a positive experience. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have its pitfalls. We’ve both had friends that co-wrote with others, only for the friendship to come to an end. Hopefully, that will never be an issue for us. Trust is a major issue when writing with a colleague or friend. And as much as one person may believe the foundations of that co-writing relationship to be secure, it doesn’t take much to crack a once stable friendship. Especially if most of your co-writing and publicity revolves around social network sites. Misinterpretation, jealousy and the odd unfavorable elements are a given and need to be avoided or at best talked about away from that environment for that relationship to succeed.

While social networking has huge advantages, they are not the answer to, nor do they aid a healthy co-writing relationship if either writer is taking other people's opinions to heart and letting it bring down their enthusiasm for all their hard work. It’s surprising a number of relationships that fall apart due to unfounded allegations made on Facebook. I can safely say that after years spent on social network sites it happens all too often. Trust...Trust in your partner, your friend, and your co-writer. Talk to them, not the element dousing the flames of your passion for writing. There’s nothing wrong in protecting your work. Legal contracts, copywriter policies should help cement the safety of your work. If your co-writer is a real friend, they shouldn’t have an issue with securing a contract. It protects you both!

We both enjoy the fun aspect of Facebook and the crazy bunch of friends and readers we’ve met there. Some are more like family and we love them as such. We have no doubt that we wouldn’t be where we are now if it wasn’t for the likes of La, Kim S., Kim T., Lis, Frankie, Gena, Kylie, Soxie and every like, love or pride flag. The list is endless. Tonia, Teri, Elizabeth, Luff (cupcake/Sweet Treat) the lovely Madi, Kit and not forgetting Ali, Tim, K.C., Susan, Suzanne, Lou, Nicole and Fiona we hope that each and every one of our friends knows how much we appreciate them. Their support, as well as the support of the bloggers, has left us speechless at times. They never fail to amaze us as readers and friends. We’ve known most for many years. For me, V.L, some go back to a few years before I met J.T. The fun weekend morning playing up on the pages. The late nights spent reading our favorite posts.

It was on Facebook where we first met. I’d been a part of a role play group playing multiple characters when J.T stormed the boards and joined the same group. I remember those days with fond appreciation, mostly because it brought J.T and V.L together as a team, a team that grew into a partnership that saw us tying the knot in Washington D.C on the fourth of April 2014. We’ve been together for nearly seven years now and have worked hard to overcome the obstacles placed in our way.

I think that our oldest friends know that V.L. and I met through a fanfiction/roleplaying group dedicated to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Those vampires brought a lot of love and joy into my life on the page and outside of it. We started out as team members, talked our way into friendship and wound up falling head over shitkickers in love. October 2010 started our journey into becoming published authors, co-authors and most importantly a married pair of crazy ladies who get to follow one of their greatest passions and do it with the person we love. We’ve had ups and downs compounded by the reality of living in two different countries separated by an ocean and a roll of legal tape that would circle the sun and moon. We’ve persevered through heartache and loneliness to celebrate happiness and success. We don’t get to see each other in person nearly as much as we’d like, but I was fortunate enough to spend five short but wonderful months in England with her doing the mundane, every day schlep of life. We make the most of our visits by going sightseeing, visiting friends and family and just enjoying being in the same room together. We don’t get much writing done during those times as we are too busy with other pursuits.

We write when we are apart although we have had many long discussions about stories and characters while driving across the big ol’ US of A. We use a number of strategies in our writing process. OneDrive, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Messenger are all important parts of our writing process. The internet makes the impossible, very possible for us and what we do. With everything online, we both have ready access to the story we are working on at the moment. A huge pitfall for us is the time difference between Alabama and the UK. Six hours can seem like a lifetime when you are waiting for an answer or when you’re super excited for your partner to read what you’ve written. Or, if you’re waiting for a book release or cover reveal. A distinct advantage to writing together is the dual attack we have on writer’s block. Even if one of us gets stuck, the other can usually push through and get the ball rolling again. Another advantage is having a second perspective on the same situation. One of us might see an angle or catch a timeline snafu where the other misses it. It really helps in the writing process to have that second opinion. It widens your viewpoint and can take you in a direction you didn’t expect. It keeps the process interesting and fun. It’s been seven years since we started this journey and I look forward to three times as many years to come. We’ve got at least that many voices already in our heads and more start whispering every day. We’re in it for the long haul and we hope all of you stick with us and enjoy the ride.

War is upon them and with its advance comes a force of unity bound by love and sealed by blood. Together, Malachi and Laziel fight to protect those they hold close.

Read on to assuage your thirst as the Crimson Nights Saga continues.  


Excerpt

“You will respond to me.” 

Not in this or any other lifetime. Vischeral ground his molars together and remained silent. Denial screamed in his mind, but didn’t pass his lips. Imprisoned by silver chains, he stood spread eagled and naked in the middle of Darklon’s bedchamber. He defied his Sire the only way he was able; by denying him any response, verbal or physical. He hung limp in the chains while the bastard played with his body. 

He hated the affection. He much preferred the whip biting into his back and thighs, or the nipple clamps and riding crop against his chest. On those days, he could focus on Copi and that last beautiful night together before he was snatched from his lover’s arms. Pain ripped through Vischeral’s chest. Not because of the sadistic monster at his back, Copi’s beautiful face filled his mind. Creator’s balls, he had fucked up so badly with Dane.

“So defiant,” Darklon purred. Vischeral banished the image of Copi as Darklon circled around so they stood face to face. Vischeral met his gaze with the very defiance Darklon praised. Adoration tinged with madness stared back at him. 

The hands on his body continued their stroking and petting. Garbled words of endearment whispered against his skin. Vischeral retreated into his mind, into the open case files he’d left behind in Alaska. While his Sire marked him with mouth, teeth and hands; Vischeral sifted through murders, assaults, grisly scene photos and witness statements. Despite Darklon’s talented efforts, he refused to succumb to the Elder’s lascivious demands. His body; hell his everything, belonged to Copi.

“You belong to me.” Anger spiked Darklon’s tone.

Fear tensed his muscles. Vischeral’s dark eyes flicked from their perusal of the far wall to study Darklon’s face. Had he slipped? Had he dropped his shields? Had Copi’s name slipped through his barriers? He shifted his weight onto the balls of his feet. His fingers locked around the chains even though the silver burned his palms. He would never allow the monster in front of him to get his hands on Copi. His beautiful Copi. The pain in his chest intensified. Vischeral growled a challenge.

Unholy fury speared out of Darklon’s gaze. His failure to illicit a response had cooled his ardor, and Vischeral’s defiance tipped his mind over the edge. The lust for blood and domination took the fore. Sharp talons dug into Vischeral’s ribs, piercing the skin down to the bone. Darklon continued his ministrations. The razor like nails sliced Vischeral’s skin into ribbons. Blood flowed freely over his naked hips and thighs. 

“I will have you,” the Elder hissed. “I have friends now who can breach your barriers. Demons do so enjoy breaking a soul.” Darklon retracted his talons and ran bloody fingers down Vischeral’s cheek. He leaned in so close his fetid breath washed over Vischeral’s compressed lips. “You can forget that little pup you were frolicking with in Alaska. He’ll never find you here. Not even Denali can reach you here.” 

Dry cracked lips pressed against his mouth. “Rest while you can, my precious. I will be back and we will finish this.” Rough fingers jerked his still limp cock before the Elder backed away. His eyes raked over Vischeral’s savaged body. 

“I’ve waited a long time for you, Vischeral Bourne. I can be patient only so much longer.” Darklon lifted his blood covered fingers and rubbed them across his mouth. “I will taste all of you again. And, it will be soon.”

The Garden (Lavender Shores #2) by Rosalind Abel - Release Day Review

The blurb

Beautiful Gilbert Bryant designs jewelry for the rich and famous, and he made his escape from his gossipy little hometown of Lavender Shores. However, with so many friends and family, he keeps getting pulled back. When he attends his best friend’s engagement party, Gilbert can’t help but sample one of the new men in town. It’s just some innocent—or not so innocent—fun. Nothing that will even cross his mind once he gets back to his everyday life. 

Walden Thompson dreamed about living in Lavender Shores since he visited as a child. He finally gets his chance, and he embraces the opportunity to start over, to become someone new. He leaves both hurts and dangerous habits in the past, where they belong. When Gilbert crosses his path, Walden gives in to his baser instincts. He can indulge in the carnal pleasures this once and still be okay. 

Their few hours together haunt Gilbert, the two-hundred-mile buffer from home no longer shutting out the past or the sexy man he left behind. Walden is just beginning to recover from the smoldering encounter with Gilbert when they are thrust together once more. This time, neither of them can walk away, no matter how hard they try. But when their pasts crash into each other as surely as the magnetism that pulls them together, walking away may be the only option. 




Review

‘I’d seen his soul. Beautiful, broken, strong. A soul I wanted to hold and protect. A soul I thought might be able to heal mine.’ - Gilbert

WOW! This book packs a punch in every possible and exquisitely wonderful way. I mean, what’s not to love about a story featuring two gorgeous men who both see themselves as broken beyond redemption. Two men who are irresistibly drawn to each other and, when they act on it, discover they are a perfect match when it comes to sex. Two men who, despite their every instinct screaming at them to forget the other, to keep their distance, find it impossible to fight whatever it is that’s pulling them ever closer together.

There’s a lot I won’t be telling you about this story. You won’t catch me revealing why Gilbert is determined to stay away from Lavender Shores for as much of the time as he can possibly manage. Nor why he has an issue with teachers. And I’m also not going to talk about the past Walden is ashamed off. All I’ll say here is that both these men have good reasons for fearing that others might reject them as soon as those secrets come out into the open — it may turn out that they’re wrong, but you’ll completely understand where they’re coming from and your heart will break for them a little.

I got completely swept up in Gilbert and Walden’s story. They’re such beautiful creatures, despite what they might think of themselves. And together they are pure magic. And their bedroom antics — let’s just say Rosalind Abel takes us to a whole new level of hot. But, while I enjoyed (and maybe blushed about) the sex scenes, it was the emotional journey both men made that touched me most. The trust growing between them, the way they manage to open up to each other despite their fears, and the way they hold on despite their fear of what they’re about to walk into, took my breath away.

And I can’t thank the author enough for not taking the obvious route towards creating drama. I thought I knew what had to be coming and when it didn’t, I cheered.

As for the garden the book is named for: I want it to be mine. The descriptions of it were so vivid and painted such a stunning image I actually found myself being jealous of a fictional character for having created such a magical sanctuary.

All in all it is safe to say I’ve fallen hard for Lavender Shores. The setting, the people who live there, and the love stories we get to observe have all worked their way into my heart, and I’m already looking forward to book three. To say I’m a fan would be a gross understatement.

Matchstick Men (A Hunter Dane Investigation #1) by Adira August

Blurb

SEX, GAMES & MURDER ~ Want to play? 

It was munch night at the most elite underground BDSM club in the Rockies. Relaxed and informal, highlighted by the weekly Matchstick Challenge game. 

Detective Sergeant Hunter Dane, reigning champion, looked forward to a relaxing evening to start his 3 days off. A few beers on the deck. An interlude with a sweet sub. Stumping a challenger with a new puzzle. Home early for a decent night's sleep.

Some people are SO deadly serious about their games. 
Now Hunt has a fresh body and a new puzzle to solve in twenty-four hours if he wants to find a killer.

Review

Occasionally I read a book that enthrals me to such an extent that I have no idea how to write my review or what to put in it, apart from ‘this book is magical! Go buy and read it! Now!’  

Matchstick Men was exactly such a book. I knew from the start that I was going to be in for a treat. I read On His Knees, the prequel to Matchstick Men, only two days ago and that short story blew my mind away. I yearned to spend more time with Hunt and Cam and was over the moon that the sequel was ready and waiting for me.

And then the author went and turned what would always have been a fascinating story into my personal catnip. Long before I ever discovered MM and BDSM, Mystery was my go-to genre. Putting two hot men in a D/s situation while they’re solving a mystery, well, it doesn’t get any better than that for me.

I’m still not entirely sure what to say about this story. It is clever, well plotted, perfectly paced, extremely hot, and impossible to put down. And, what’s more, this book actively involves the reader in the mysteries it contains. Of course there’s the murder itself. And, I have to admit, that I had the murderer pegged from the start. That is however no shortcoming on the author’s part but rather the result of me having read so many mysteries that I’m almost too good at recognising how the plot works. And besides, watching Hunt and Cam come to the conclusion I had reached earlier on was as fascinating as trying to figure out the mystery for myself would have been.

But, as much as I enjoyed the mystery and the resolution of it, my main interest (some might say obsession) in this book was the developing dynamic between Cam and Hunt. And, between the two of them, it is Hunter who has really piqued my interest. He is so sure he’s got himself completely figured out.

Hunter made no claim of sexual preference (…) He formed no attachments. He simply wasn’t able to.

In other words Hunt:

(…) needed men for power, women for sex and no one for intimacy.

Except that this lack of emotional attachments appears to be less black and white than Hunt likes to think. He may have convinced himself that he doesn’t form or need those bonds with others, I remain to be convinced. As does Cam, who refuses to take no for an answer and knows exactly what Hunter needs, when he needs it, and how to give it to him. In On His Knees Cam gave Hunt what he needed in order not to break:

“Extreme Domism (…) There are no limits. You have no safeword. You do nothing I do not order. I don’t stop until I’m done… You have one chance to walk away. Once I restrain you, nothing and no one can or will rescue you. I am all there is.”

In this book, while the Dom is still there a lot of the time, the extreme is in the background because it’s not what Hunt requires and because Cam now wants more.

“I want you to do what I say because you trust me to make you to feel good. Because you want from me what I want to give you.”

And so Cam introduces Hunt to another beautiful first.  No, I’m not going to tell you what that was, read the book J I will say that the moment took my breath away.

And yet, despite all his Dominance, Camden is ‘just’ a twenty-something young man. And I guess that’s one of the many magical aspects about this book; that Cam is not portrayed as the big bad Dom. He’s allowed to be young, and overwhelmed, and even out of his depth. Just as Hunt is so very much more than ‘just’ a sub (or even a switch). Hunt and Cam are a two way street and when they collide in the middle it is poetry in motion.

Through Cam’s eyes the reader gets to recognise that Hunt doesn’t see himself as clearly as he sees the world around him. And while he’s nowhere near ready to admit to himself that maybe he is capable of becoming emotionally attached to someone else, his own thoughts betray him at times.

“It occurred to me then, that Camden Snow was possibly the most complex, interesting person I’d ever met. Child. Champion. Clever analyst. Extreme Dom. And I barely knew him. It would be easy to become kind of obsessed with him, with solving the puzzle that he was.”

I apologise. I’ve been rambling above and I’m afraid I’m not sure how to fix it. I will however try to summarise my thoughts.

Matchstick Men is a combination of several intriguing mysteries. There’s the murder in the story, there’s the question who and what Hunter really is, and there is the matchstick puzzle for the reader to solve (answer kindly provided at the end of the book). Apart from that there’s the story about Camden and Hunter which takes us from (extreme) BDSM to pure love and back again. Every single aspect of this story is spellbindingly intriguing. It is safe to say that Adira August has captured me. I’ve only just finished this book and I’m already yearning for the next one. And I’ve got a feeling that if we ever get to ‘A Hunter Dane Investigation #3674’ I’ll still be gagging for more.

When the boat's a rockin', don't come knockin'!

Out-and-proud travel writer Dan Taylor is a city boy who can’t steer a boat to save his life, but that doesn’t stop him from heading into the English countryside to write up a narrowboat holiday. Compared to London, the canal seems dull as ditchwater. Until he crashes into the boat of a half-naked, tattooed man whose bad-boy, penniless appearance doesn’t fit with his posh accent. Dan is intrigued, and he always gets his man.


Still smarting from a past betrayal, Robin Hamilton is firmly closeted in his narrowboat—his refuge from outrageous, provocative men like Dan. But as circumstances keep throwing them together, he can’t help himself from coming to the hopelessly out-of-place city boy’s rescue. Exposure to Dan’s sunny charm starts to melt Robin’s resolve and he’s tempted by the idea of a brief, harmless fling.


After all, in less than a week, Dan will have left the canal and be back to his diet of casual hook-ups and friends with benefits.


Determined not to fall in love, both men dive into one week of indulgence…only to find themselves swept away by a current of escalating intimacy and emotional intensity. Troubled waters they didn’t anticipate… and haven’t a clue how to navigate.


Warning: Contains one lovable tart, one posh boy gone feral, rough sex, alfresco sex, vile strawberry flavoured condoms, intimate body piercings, red thermal long-johns, erotic woodchopping, an errant cat, a few colourful characters you wouldn't touch with a bargepole, and plenty of messing about on the river.

Looking for love is the last thing air steward, James Foster, is thinking about when he swaps flights to save his hung-over best friend’s job. He doesn’t know that fate has other ideas and he would fall for the tall, bearded passenger, Darren Busby, sat in 14D. Up in the air, James finds that the connection he has with Darren is too strong to ignore.

After missing the opportunity to ask for Darren’s number, James' jaw hits the floor when Darren walks into the same hotel he is staying at. Butterflies and nerves take over, but soon give way to excitement as they get to know each other on the ground.


When James' ex, Richard, shows up and begs for forgiveness, James has to decide if going back to the man who broke his heart would be worth it, or if he should finally move on and take a chance on Darren.

Review

Up in the air is a sweet, short, and fun read. I honestly think I had a smile on my face more or less from start to finish.

James Foster is a sweetheart and too nice for his own good. While his kindness and generosity make him a wonderful (best) friend, they also mean that he sets himself up for pain when he insists on thinking/hoping that the bastard ex, Richard, might be redeemable. It is impossible not to root for James and cheer him on when someone who does care about and for him, Darren, shows an interest.

Darren, the gentle ‘giant’. While the blurb tells us that James falls for Darren (which he does, by the way) it is Darren who falls first, quite literally, and thus provided me with a laugh out loud moment. Darren is cute, kind and very protective when it comes to James. The moment when Darren comes face to face with Richard had me cheering from the sidelines.

James’ colleague and friend Annie was a wonderful addition to the story and just the sort of straight talking, no nonsense friend James needed. Richard on the other hand came, for me, perilously close to being a stereotype.

If I have an issue with the story it is that it felt a bit rushed to me. I could have done with not necessarily a longer story but with more words and time having been dedicated to the developing feelings and relationship between James and Darren. On the other hand, I did see that there will be another story featuring this couple, so maybe that treat is still in store for me.


All in all I enjoyed myself reading about James and Darren and I’m looking forward to reading more stories set ‘Up in the Air’. 

Author Bio

George was about eighteen when he told his friend that he was going to be a writer. It took him another eighteen years before he finally did anything about it and wrote his first short story. A typical Englishman, he drinks buckets of tea with milk—but no sugar, because he is sweet enough. His Nan told him so.


George lives just outside of London, but close enough to enjoy Soho and the West End, where you will find him in a bar with a pint, in a club dancing into the early hours of the morning, or enjoying a musical in the theater; but more than likely he will be in a coffee shop reading a book or writing a new story. Currently single, but taking applications for future husband position, George enjoys crafting romantic stories in which he hopes that one day, life will imitate art.

Sometimes it's the cop who needs to hit the floor... As a homicide cop, every blood-soaked crime scene settled in my bones and snaked around my spine. There was only one way to exorcise the images from my soul ... 

Inside the club, I stopped to scan the room. He was here, Camden Snow. A Norse sex god in the guise of unpretentious youth. Only his ice-blue eyes gave evidence of the Dom who took whomever he wished, whatever way he wanted, with a look and a nod. Merciless. 

Cam found me watching him and fixed me with his arctic gaze. This time, I didn't walk away. He cocked an eyebrow. Well? 

The last thing I needed was mercy. 

I dropped to my knees. 

Review

OMG. This was stunning. And while this book is more or less one long BDSM scene, that’s not actually what I refer to when I call this a gorgeous story. Because as hot as these two men are, that is not what captivated me.

Now, before I go any further, I need to get one thing out of the way. These two men play (although that doesn’t sound like quite the right word to in the context of this story) in a no-safeword dynamic. If that is something you have an issue with, this may not be the book for you.

This is the story of Hunter, a cop who’s just experienced the worst day of his life. He’s been intrigued by Cam, a Dom in the club he frequents. He normally has very strict boundaries when going to his club, which means playing with Cam is never going to be an option. On the night described in this book, Hunter is near breaking point and all too aware of it. He needs something and he’d rather fall to his knees in front of the Dom who doesn’t allow safewords than be crushed by the weight he wears.

Cam is the, literally, ALL demanding Dom in question. He knows Hunter and has been keeping an eye on him, knowing full well that their personal demands and expectations made them incompatible. Until they weren’t anymore…

Their scene together took my breath away. Not so much because it was hot, although God knows it really was. No, what really got to me was the way Cam was both exactly what Hunter expected and completely the opposite. I lost myself in both Cam’s and Hunter’s thoughts and observations. And the way in which Cam ‘broke’ Hunter with such exquisite care was breath taking.

Maybe the story could have been longer. It really is just one scene, a moment in time (but what a moment). But, since I knew there’s a second book featuring Hunter and Cam available, the length of the story didn’t bother me. I read it more like a prequel to what’s to come than a stand-alone story, I guess. But as such, it certainly worked.

As I mentioned above, this title is currently available via Instafreebie and, if you enjoy BDSM, you’d be a fool not to pick it up. Personally, I’m going to get my hands on Matchstick Men as soon as I possibly can. These two men combined with a mystery to solve should mean a one way street to book heaven for me.
