Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance, Law Enforcement
Publisher: DreamSpinner Press
Release Date: Sept 11 2018

Blurb/Synopsis:

The only path to happiness is freedom: the freedom to live and love as the heart wants. Claiming that freedom will take all of the courage one young man has, but he won't have to face it alone. In small, conservative Sierra Pines, California, Reverend Gabriel is the law. His son, Willy, follows his dictates, until he meets a man in Sacramento and reunites with him in his hometown—right under his father's nose. Reggie is Sierra Pines's newly appointed sheriff. His dedication to the job means not flaunting his sexuality, but when he sees Willy again, he can't escape the feeling that they're meant to be together. He'll keep Willy's secret until Willy is ready to let the world see who he really is. But if going up against the church and the townspeople isn't enough, the perils of the work Reggie loves so much might mean the end of their romance before it even gets off the ground.

Excerpt:

Reggie turned away, took another drink of beer, and snagged a sausage pretzel snack-bite thing that a server had just delivered to the table. Food was a good idea, and he popped one into his mouth and grabbed another just as Vick excused himself and headed to the bathroom.
“Don’t be gone too long or we’ll know what you’ve been doing,” Casey teased. It was an old joke, and Vick flashed Casey the bird before continuing back.
“Uh-oh,” Bobby said, and Reggie looked at him. He tilted his head toward the wall, and Reggie turned. The kid still sat at his table, but now there were two other guys there, one on either side of him. They were big, tough, and had the kid hemmed in. It was a classic intimidation tactic, and the kid’s eyes were like a deer caught in headlights. He stood, probably trying to get away, and one of the men put a hand on his shoulder. Another tactic. The kid sat down, eyes now filling with fear.
“The evil trolls are out tonight,” Casey commented. “Why can’t assholes like that leave everyone alone? For Christ’s sake. All they’re going to do is end up scaring the kid right back into his closet, and it’ll take years before he has the courage to take another step.”
Reggie understood that. He slid off his chair. He hated bullies and wasn’t going to let the kid get hurt.
“Reggie, is that a good idea?” Bobby asked, placing a hand gently on his arm.
“Remember Asshole Art?” Reggie asked.
Bobby pulled his hand away, his eyes growing storm-cloud dark, and Bobby nodded. “Go get ’em.”
Reggie drew himself to his full height and strode over to the table as though he owned the place. “Is there a problem here?” He addressed his question to the scared rabbit kid, who was holding the edge of the table like it was a life preserver. “Are they bothering you?”
“We were having a drink with him.” One of the big guys stood slowly, trying to intimidate, but Reggie knew that game. “Go away if you know what’s good for you.” The words came out of Rat Number One’s yellow-toothed mouth, breath smelling like he’d just eaten dinner out of a dumpster. Reggie inhaled. Neither guy smelled like they’d had a bath in a while.
“How about you let him answer for yourself?” Reggie said.
“I… they… I…,” the kid stammered, gripping the table until his knuckles were white, fear ramping up even more.

“I see.” Reggie turned to Rat One and Rat Two. “I suggest you two get lost… now!” He reached into his pocket and flashed his badge quickly, not giving them a chance to really see it. “You have ten seconds to get up and get out, or I’ll call some friends and we’ll check out your cars. See what you’re hiding. Scum like you are always hiding something.” He smiled, and both rats stared at each other, then practically tripped over themselves to get the hell away.

Blurb/Synopsis:

1st grade teacher turned super-soldier struggles to keep her two sisters-in-arms safe during a bloody war. But, the process that created these powerful living weapons is also turning some into psychopathic, schizophrenic killers.
"You think being a genetically enhanced super-soldier is hard? Trying being a 1st grade teacher."
That was a joke Jocelyn use to say to her teammate in training camp. Today, many of those she befriended in camp are dead. Desperate to keep her two sisters-in-arms alive, Jocelyn is willing to throw herself into any challenge. Sadly, that's going to be harder than she thought, because Ophelia is slowing going mad and Patricia is just a normal human who just happens to be an incredible sniper... but still just normal.
How do you defeat foes that can turn the earth herself against you?
How do you defeat foes that can dodge bullets?
How do you defeat foes who've already signed their own death warrants?
With the war between the Northern Alliance and Keynosa leaving both of their lands in ruins, Jocelyn's and her team are finally poised to win and end the war for good. But, a new weapon, one that can instantly stop even a super-soldier with a single shot, has hit the battlefield.
Together, Patricia, Jocelyn and Ophelia are sent on a mission to destroy this new weapon and their enemy is willing to throw all they have to stop them. These living war machines are in a race against two enemies, but which will destroy them first? The lethal new weapon from Keynosa or their own inner demons?

 Excerpt (G):

They release the sounds of doom, chasing me with round after round of gunfire. I try to zigzag, give them a harder target, but it’s slowly becoming more and more useless. They’re getting a bead on me, figuring out my movements, drilling their bullets closer and closer to their target. It won’t be long before one hits. I won’t survive by simply running, but I doubt we’re far enough away to make them forget about the kids.
I have to fight.
Dodging into action, I turn and use my blade to deflect the rounds pouring in my direction, pushing my eyes and arms in spurts. Shit, I can’t keep this up. My eyes already burn with fatigue. My four pursuers respond, holding their positions and spreading out as fast as possible. They think they have me. So, in an instant, I change speed by pushing so hard I break something in my right foot.
The gamble pays off. Grabbing my gun from its holster, I fire on the four Guardsmen and zero in on the one closest to me.
She’s good. Her hands are already up and ready to fight. Their tactics are sound, splitting up and trying to cut off all means of escape. But they are not fighting some random runner simply looking to evade. The Keynosians in the Midwest would know this. One-on-one, she doesn’t have the speed to stop my attacks.
It only takes a moment for my blade to pass cleanly through her eye socket and down through her jaw, cleaving her skull in two.
The top of her head slides down and topples to the rocky ground below as something in my arm pops under the exertion.
Okay, it’s three to one now and I have both a broken foot and an arm that refuses to cooperate fully.
They won’t allow me to rest. More shots hammer towards me. Each skillfully placed shot is meant to prevent me from running in any direction. The outside two sweep their shots inward, and the center Guardsmen unleashes his barrage directly down the pike.
Again, I charge, pushing everything so hard that my body screams in pain. I have no other option. I’m willing to shatter this body in order to stop them from hurting those kids.

RBTL Tours: Don't Let Go by Andrew Grey


Title: Don’t Let Go
Author: Andrew Grey
Genre: M/M Western Romance
Publisher: DreamSpinner Press
Release Date: Aug 7 2018
Edition/Format: 1st Edition/Format ~ eBook & Print

Blurb/Synopsis:

Avery Rivers is a country music sensation, selling records by the millions and playing to sold-out crowds. But behind that persona is Robert, a burned-out musician cracking under the pressure. He’s unable to write any new songs, and he wants out of the business—at least for a while. He changes his appearance and finds honest, hard work in Jackson, Wyoming. Maybe getting to be a regular guy for a while will get him past his block.

Hy Whitely was a championship bull rider until he watched his best friend thrown in the arena and decided the rodeo circuit was no longer the place for him. He wants to be plain old Zeke for a while, and when he returns to his family ranch, he bumps right into Robert—a one-night stand from his last rodeo appearance who is now working there as a ranch hand.

The heat between the men could sear the grass off the range, but each one is hiding a secret. Robert and Zeke, the men behind the public images, fall in love, but can they hold on when Avery and Hy are pulled back into the spotlight?

Excerpt:

 Yeah.” Robert saw some of his desire reflected in the other man’s eyes, and it sent his heart racing a little faster, the pit of his belly zinging and fluttering slightly. “I just got into town a few hours ago and needed something to eat.” He also wanted to drink and relax. Robert had no illusions that Cheyenne was going to have any rainbow-type nightlife, but it looked like some might have found him. That was, if he could still read the signs.
Robert got a refill and slipped off his barstool to wander toward the back of the bar, where a bunch of people were watching the dance floor. The cowboy came right along with him, which in Robert’s mind was a sure sign of interest. He leaned against the wall as couples line-danced their way across the floor.
“I love his music,” the cowboy said from next to him.
“Me too,” Robert said about his own song. He had loved it when he wrote it and recorded it, but now he’d heard it and sung it so many times…. He needed something new to get the creative juices flowing. “I’m Robert.” He held out his hand.
“Zeke,” the cowboy answered, shaking firmly, his touch lingering just a little longer than normal, which only upped the flutter of excitement. “I never got to see him when he was in Denver. Me and some friends talked about getting tickets, but they were sold out in minutes.” Zeke sipped his beer as the song came to an end, and Robert did the same, trying not to be too obvious about watching him. “I wonder if his voice really sounds like that or if it’s Auto-Tuned or something.”
Robert pulled a face as his temper threatened to rise. He had never used Auto-Tune or any of that synthesized shit in his music. That was cheating as far as he was concerned. What was heard on all his recordings was truly him and nothing else. “I suspect it’s real. It sounds it.”
Zeke nodded. “True. How can anyone conjure up those soulful rich undertones that get you just right?”
Robert shrugged. He certainly didn’t want to get too deep into a discussion of himself. It seemed wrong and was way too close to home.
Half the place was dancing, and a pretty girl in boots and a Western denim skirt came up to him, all smiles and huge eyes. “Do you dance?” she asked Robert, fluttering her eyes at him.
Robert smiled and nodded. Then he held the lady’s hand and led her onto the floor. It took him two seconds before he was into the moves, and he danced to her delight, adding a little extra spring to his step.
