Christmas Homecoming by L.A. Witt Blog Tour


August 1939. Roger Miller and Jack O’Brien have been close since childhood. By the time they realize there’s more between them than friendship, Jack is leaving their sleepy Iowa town for college. But they console themselves knowing he’ll be home for Christmas. Right?

It is Christmas before they see each other again, but that Christmas comes six years and a world war later. Aged, beaten, and shaken by combat, they’re not the boys they were back then, but their feelings for each other are stronger than ever.

Neither know the words to say everything they’ve carried since that peacetime summer kiss, though. Even as they stand in the same room, there’s a thousand miles between them.

But maybe that’s some distance the little angel in Roger’s rucksack can cross.

This book is four of seven stories which can all be read and enjoyed in any order.

The Christmas Angel Series

In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.

Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas angel through the years. Whether it’s 1700s England (Eli Easton's Christmas Angel), the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding’s Summerfield’s Angel), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk’s Magician’s Angel), World War II (L.A. Witt’s Christmas Homecoming), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker’s Soldier’s Wish), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday’s Shrewd Angel), or 2018 (RJ Scott’s Christmas Prince), the Christmas angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.

This story is such a wonderful Christmas treat. LA Witt’s military men are always fabulous, and I love this story of the reunion of two battle weary childhood friends.

Roger and Jack shared a single kiss before WWII took them to opposite sides of the world for five years. Back at home, both men struggle to settle back into civilian life after a five-year detour. Both are suffering from PTSD and both struggle with parental expectations. I love the chemistry between Jack and Roger and I love the friendship they share.

I’m not a historic romance fan and I was a little bit wary going into this book. Historic gay romance is usually pretty bleak and depressing. Thankfully, the author manages to keep this relatively light – even if everything wraps up in a convenient and not entirely convincing happily ever after. I enjoyed this. There is enough grit to keep my interest and enough magic for a special Christmas story.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is one of series of linked stories which features a Christmas angel that brings together a couple at Christmas. I really enjoyed this book, and like the idea of different authors using a common theme.

Back in the time of the WWII, the level of tolerance for homosexuality was very low, and this setting is explained very well in this book but does not limit the love which we get through this story. Both Jack and Roger have suffered greatly in war and come back home very different men, yet they still remember their first kiss and want more. The romance kindled in the cold of winter holds a lot of heat in their plans for their future together.

Lovely Christmas feel-good story.



L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn't lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don't tell Lauren. And definitely don't tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut...

A Summer Soundtrack for Falling in Love by Arden Powell


What he wanted was a music career. What he needed was love.

When Kris Golding leaves his dusty Kansas hometown for a fresh start in New York, he thinks an apartment and a job are waiting for him. But when he finds neither, rather than admit defeat, he takes his chances busking—and meets Rayne Bakshi of international rock band The Chokecherries. Rayne needs a new guitarist, and gives Kris his first break since leaving home.

Rayne wears makeup and glitter and thinks nothing of kissing Kris in front of twenty thousand screaming fans for the attention. Instantly infatuated, Kris begins to question whether he might have a crush on Rayne—could he be bisexual? But since Kris claimed to be straight, Rayne’s wary of getting involved offstage.

As the tour gains momentum, Kris’s sexuality becomes the least of his troubles. Between his conservative brother hell bent on “rescuing” him from his life of debauchery, a peacock that may or may not be the avatar of a cult god, and a publicity stunt that threatens to upend his routine with the band, Kris is definitely not in Kansas anymore.

This is a perfect fantasy rock star romance. When an aspiring musician finds himself homeless in New York and busking for loose change, he doesn’t expect to be spotted and hired by a famous rock band. This is the story of Kris’ summer tour as lead guitarist for the Chokecherries. It’s also a story about self-discovery and falling in love.

I loved Kris. Fresh from small town Kansas, Kris finds himself mesmerised by the genderbending world of glam rock in New York. Kris is open to everything and scared of nothing. Except he is scared about exploring his sexuality and he’s a little bit scared of his parents’ reaction to his new life. Kris is at once completely ordinary and a talented prodigy. He’s the outsider in the band and he is always learning and observing.

Rayne is a little bit harder to know and love. His charisma and sexuality made me wary of him at first. It takes a long time to see beneath his makeup and star power. I love the instant friendship between Rayne and Kris and I love the way Rayne opens up Kris’ world. The connection between these two is sweet and kinda magical. The slow burn romance is almost painful at times and I love the sparks that fly between them. There’s a blip near the end where miscommunication between Rayne and Kris is unnecessarily amplified but for most of the book these two are pretty special together.

The main thing that takes this book from five stars to four stars for me is the bizarre cult storyline that begins at the halfway point. I had several WTF moments and I think the over-the-top storyline detracts from wonderful characters, beautiful relationships, and a coherent plot.

Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones


Charley Davidson—part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper—returns in the New York Times bestseller, Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones.

Sometimes I wrestle my demons.
Sometimes we just snuggle.
—Bumper Sticker

Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow—but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She's a paranormal private eye and grim reaper-in-training who's known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he's dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really.

But when the FBI file on Reyes' childhood happens to land into her lap, she can't help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins. First, Charley finds a naked corpse riding shotgun in her car. Then, a man loses his soul in a card game. Throw in a Deaf boy who sees dead people, a woman running from mobsters, and a very suspicious Reyes, and things can't get any worse for Charley. Unless, of course, the Twelve Beasts of Hell are unleashed…

HOLY MOLEY! These books just keep getting better, and better.

Sixth Grave on the Edge is a bit darker, more dangerous (if that's really possible with Charley), it has the depth I was craving regarding Charley and Reyes’ relationship.

This installment brings Charley and Reyes together, like really together. Actually, I would say coming together is the "theme" of this book. We meet a NEW character, it's yet to be seen if he's a good guy or bad. Of course, while Charley's personal life is "taking off," her professional jobs are reaching a new level! A man requests that Charley obtains the soul he sold to the devil. No idea how to complete this job, but I will say it's quite an adventure. The other case she starts working is a LOT more depraved, it may involve crime bosses and FBI informants.

Overall, this is my new favorite Charley Davidson book! It feels like Charley has matured, and not only that, but Reyes has also. One more thing, YAY Cookie... Bring on book 7!


Erica☆☆☆☆☆
5 'Where Can I Get My Own Reyes?' Stars

Sixth Grave on the Edge is obviously the sixth installment of the Charley Davidson series and cannot be read as a standalone. Each book builds momentum, adding more and more threads, as well as answering questions brought forth in previous books. I strongly suggest reading from the beginning.

Zany, witty, sarcastic, humorous, punny, yet highly emotional, gut-punch darkness. It's not a Charley Davidson novel if someone doesn't die, Charley is nearly killed, we all swoon for Reyes, and all fear for the son of the devil's longevity. As usual, Darynda Jones delivers on all counts.

In this installment, Charley focuses less on detective work and helping out the police department and FBI, and more on personal investigations and personal matters. That kidnapping case from 30 years ago is obviously Reyes. Those men who break into her apartment obviously want Charley to do their bidding or a 'friend' dies in 48-hours. Those ghosts, especially the naked and hung older gentleman riding shotgun in Misery, need constant attention and problem-solving. Even Angel has a secret he's carrying.

Charley is on the case, playacting as Davidson Matchmaking, not Davidson Investigation. Uncle Bob and Cookie needed more than a nudge, as well as keeping young Quinton away from an even younger Amber. Since it's easier to focus on the romance of her nearest and dearest than the Post-It note that simply needs "It's a yes/no, Dutch."

Then there is Reyes, who is on the top of his game. Like seriously, where can I get my own personal Reyes? The son of the devil knows how to court and seduce even the most commitment phobic among us, because of his utter devotion for Charley. I feel like one of his devotees at the bar, waiting for even a glimpse of such a man. Swagger, wit, seduction skills that rival his face and bod, all tied together with the 'hurt little boy' vibe he gives off, Charley is not immune, and neither are the readers.

In the background of all the sleuthing and romancing, Swoops and the Dealer are solving the riddles of the prophesy, with one helluva ending.

More questions arise as previous answers are given. Who the heck is that baby Swoops asks, but Charley and the readers want to know if the baby's father is actually related to Swoops. What's up with Dad, who's acting shady.

What happens next is what I want to know, after that ending, but sadly I have a few books to read before I get the answers, where I'm positive more questions will arise.


Dawn☆☆☆☆☆
I love that these books just seem to be getting better as the series progresses.

What can I say except YES! Finally, with Charley and Reyes.

There are also new characters introduced in this book that add a little something extra.

This series really does keep me turning the pages. It's all getting very exciting.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆☆
This is the sixth book in the series, and you absolutely have to read each book in order to understand what is going on! There are smaller side plots which complete within the book, but they still contribute to the bigger picture. The series is such a lovely treat that I am enjoying every minute. One minute I am laughing (often when Cookie is in the room), then worrying over another a revelation about the end of the human race is made. Neither Charley nor I know yet just what her powers are... even though there are lots of hints – I cannot wait until all is revealed.

I love the developing romance between Reyes and Charley, the wall chapter is just fabulous. There is a lot of concern about how their relationship can overcome rather a lot of significant world problems. But Reyes' centuries of knowledge and Charley's human-side naivety make a fabulous counterpoint. I cannot wait to read on and find out what happens next...

The Night Sky Festival by S.A. Stovall – Warmest Wishes


Photographer Zach is happy to pack up his gear and head to the Mojave Desert over the holidays. Ever since his ex-husband filed for divorce a day before Christmas, it’s safe to say this isn’t Zach’s favorite time of year.

Fortunately, he stumbles upon a town where the residents seem to agree. The good people of Baker would much rather celebrate the possibility of extraterrestrials as they dance under the stars in their unique “Night Sky Festival.” The locals are interesting, to say the least, and they want Zach to join them.

But is Zach ready to let go of his holiday bitterness? And if so, whose invitation should he accept: the cute cashier, the burly single dad, or the sexy fun-loving cop?

Angela☆☆☆☆
The Night Sky Festival was a quirky tale, but what else would one expect from a short story set in a town that eschews Christmas in favor of a festival that celebrates aliens and UFOs? Zach is a bit of a curmudgeon at the beginning of the story, but with good reason as he’s not only reminded of the implosion of his marriage as Christmas nears, he’s also stuck in the Mojave Desert where the heat is beyond unbearable, even in December. Yet despite his dour mood, it seems like it’s raining men in the desert and they’re all showing an interest in him. Granted, it’s only three men, but in a town as small as Baker, he wasn’t expecting to encounter any gay men, much less three fine specimens who awaken his long-dead libido.

I’m not exactly sure how long this story spans, but it appears to cover at least two days of Zach’s time in Baker. Why is this important? Because by the time Zach makes it from his meet cute with Ethan to the actual Night Sky Festival, he’s gone from hating the little town of Baker to loving it for its craziness. While his change in attitude seems to be influenced by each of the men he meets, I thought it was sweet how he played matchmaker at the festival once he realized which man had really snagged his interest.

The fun thing about short stories like this is that Stovall wrote it in such a way that the “next step” is left up to the reader’s imagination and for me, I can easily see Zach making Baker his home, not only because of its lack of Christmas festivities but also because of the easy acceptance he encountered when he revealed his homosexuality. Then again, having an officer like Kross on the local police force probably sent most of the homophobes running, just kidding (not really). So, if you’re interested in a unique holiday romance this season, The Night Sky Festival could be just what you’re looking for.



S.A. Stovall grew up in California’s central valley with a single mother and little brother. Despite no one in her family having a degree higher than a GED, she put herself through college (earning a BA in History), and then continued on to law school where she obtained her Juris Doctorate.

As a child, Stovall’s favorite novel was Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. The adventure on a deserted island opened her mind to ideas and realities she had never given thought before—and it was the moment Stovall realized that storytelling (specifically fiction) became her passion. Anything that told a story, be it a movie, book, video game, or comic, she had to experience. Now as a professor and author, Stovall wants to add her voice to the myriad of stories in the world, and she hopes you enjoy.

Permission by T.M. Frazier Blog Tour


Permission is the conclusion of Grim and Emma Jean's story.

He was my first.
But since then I’ve been programmed to enjoy torture.
Being watched.
Being taken two at a time.
I feel nothing now. I’m empty. Hollow. Lost.
He knows it. He knows I need more.
So, he gives it to me.
My body has never felt such pleasure.
My heart has never endured such pain.

Ok, I have to be completely honest here and say that I absolutely adored this series with book three being my absolute favorite. I'm in no way saying Permission is better than the other two, but this was the book I've been waiting for! Dark and twisty, angsty and anguished, action-packed and emotionally charged – that is how I would describe this series.

By now you know the situation Emma Jean (Tricks) is in. You know the peril she faces with two awful options: Los Muertes or the Task Force. There is no lesser evil. There is no silver lining. There is only Grim. When everything in her life turns black, can any light shine through? Are there any cracks to allow the light in?

This book was jam-packed with the conclusion of this gripping story. The question is: Who could possibly win?

I devoured this book in one sitting, I mean I HAD to after that crazy cliffhanger ending (I totally didn't see that one coming). I absolutely loved the continuity from book two, but mostly I love these characters. I love Grim and his crazy overprotectiveness, I love Tricks and her strength. I loved Gabby and Sandy and Haze.

Be prepared for some crazy surprises, that's all I can and will say! Buckle up and enjoy the ride.


Shannan☆☆☆☆
Permission is book three in the Perversion series. This one cannot be read as a standalone. You must read books one and two to completely enjoy book three.

Permission is everything I wanted for Grim and EJ. The angst, the twisty and dark came together perfectly! It was action packed from word one, since book one. The action and suspense keep you on the edge of your seat. You get the answers to the questions that book one and two gave you. My only negative was that Permission felt rushed. I loved the ending, I just wish it wasn't a sprint to get there.

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.

T.M. enjoys writing what she calls sexy ‘wrong side of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.

Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay.

She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please don’t pinch her because she's not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.

Only Love by Garrett Leigh Blog Tour


The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves thirty-two-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.

Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O’Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.

But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.

I adored this story. I was drawn in at the beginning by Jed’s quiet strength. Jed leaves the Army having developed gastroparesis and is recovering after being shot in the thigh. Even though he is staying with his brother and his family, it felt to me like Jed was alone and adrift and I wanted someone to take care of him.

I got my wish when Jed moves in with this sister-in-law’s brother, Max. Max, who has epilepsy, lives in a lake side cabin with his service dog, Flo. He lives simply, growing his own vegetables, keeping chickens, and running a small business. This simple life really appealed to me, and Max’s simple life and understanding is exactly what Jed needs.

There is a lovely slow build up to the emotions between the men. I love the focus on their emotional and physical well-being and that any physical intimacy they share comes long after emotional intimacy has developed. Both men have experienced loss and had difficult pasts which, to me, made what Jed and Max go through to get their happiness just that bit sweeter.

Only Love is a beautiful and emotionally satisfying story and it gets five stars from me.


Angie☆☆☆☆☆
This book gave me the feels. Ugh... I felt like I was there in the story, living it as Jed and Max were. I loved both men and I loved reading their journey. Jed and Max both have issues that they deal with daily. Max even has a support dog, Flo, who is with him all the time. It made my heart melt when Max said he sometimes gets someone to take Flo for a night so she can just be a normal dog. Jed and Max had a lot of things to work through. Their relationship built slowly and was worth the time it took to get there. This was a beautiful story, there was no instant this or instant that, it was truly a wonderful book.

I highly suggest that you read the previous books in this series, otherwise, you might not understand what's going on or who the characters are.

This book has a lot of moving parts. I really liked that Liam was getting his day in court. Despite the apprehension surrounding this incident, Liam has truly found a place at Double D and while he might not understand what that means or all that it entails yet, he will. While he's dealing with the court case, he has to be away from his boyfriend, but Liam is surrounded by people who love him.

Then, to top off the anxiety from the court case, Riley goes to Mexico with his new employee and the cartel gets ahold of them. This is a high pressure, anxious time in the book. Scott was able to do a very realistic situation and I really appreciated the details. I also really enjoyed how Scott was able to pull in a family member that Riley wasn't all too fond of to help with his situation. I thought that helped the overall family dynamic a lot. What was also realistic about the situation between Jack and Riley is that Jack simply won't give up. He loves Riley with everything he has and rather than shy away from emotion, Jack lays it all out there. It's up to Riley to believe what's being shown to him, but with Jack and Riley, you always know exactly where you stand.

This was one of the better installments in the series and it really shows the reader how much love everyone at the Double D ranch has for each other.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆☆
This is the sixth book in this very sexy, and yet family focused series. You most definitely should read them in order, to understand the journey travelled by all the couples, but by Jack and Riley in particular. They are the heart and soul of Texas.

This is a book of contrasts. At the ranch the team is growing, and the new horse therapy centre is nearly ready to go. The Riley-Campbell children add a lovely dimension to the story, and make sure that the truly important things remain what motivates their dads. It is therefore rather shocking when Riley finds misadventure when he travels to a dangerous oil site, even if he does take security. I think we can safely say he is unlikely to repeat that mistake! We share the pain with Liam as he goes to court to face his abuser, and gets to understand that true family are there to support him, not judge him. I was really happy that Eden finally got her man, and that Sean's new book helped Riley.

It was really sad to see how the most stable relationship can be damaged by mental health issues, and only consistency and love help restore stability and romance to the men of the D.

Looking forward to what comes next!
