Welcome to the Erato stop on the Shameless Summer Blog Hop!
What are you shameless about? Ask anyone who knows me, and they'll probably tell you that the word shame isn't in my vocabulary (but please, don't ask them in front of my mother, since that's not a conversation I want to have. Again.). Someone once asked me what my guilty pleasures were, and I really had to think about my answer, which turned out to be...
None of my pleasures, none of the things I enjoy are a source of guilt for me. I read romances, I read erotica, I watch dopey movies, I cry over animals and babies when they're especially cute. I throw myself whole-heartedly into the things that I love, roll around in it like I'm Demi Moore and my hobbies are a king-sized bed covered in hundred-dollar bills.
Okay, maybe that was taking things a bit too far. Or not, because it's probably the most accurate description I could come up with to explain why I am never ashamed to read a book with a bare-chested Highlander on the cover, or to blog about my deep and abiding obsession with Sherlock and the Avengers (seriously, stay away from my Tumblr unless you agree), or to share my passion for Erato and how proud I am to be a part of this imprint as we group and develop into a place where all types of GLBT fiction can find a home. In fact, this week, we've got two very different releases at Erato, just to show the array of romance we have!
When one man is the epitome of calm and the other of chaos, how will they ever admit to loving each other? Can a kiss really change everything?
Nick and Alex have made a very successful movie together. Now they need to decide whether their next project is another joint venture or they go their separate ways creatively. Then the perfect manuscript arrives, offering financial security and future opportunities.
For Nick, the film is his dream: amazing effects, wonderful script, a part every actor aspires to play, and a director everyone’s begging to work with. There’s one snag: Nick and Alex will have to get to rather personal on set.
He has to refuse even though Alex isn’t willing to take no for an answer, and sets out to talk Nick into it. Nick finally agrees, despite a nosy reporter and his brother turning against him. After all, it’s just pretence. It’s not as if he’s gay and wants to make out with his friend…not until Alex kisses him. Then life gets even more complicated and interesting.
(Bisexual Erotic Romance)
A witch's spell great love may break
Aislinn never wants to see another doctor. Their painful and pointless treatments have done nothing to improve her rapidly deteriorating health. She hopes that the staff of Wiccan Haus can at least offer a change of scene, if not a return of a little of her former strength. She’s delighted to meet Punda, a masseuse, on her arrival and charmed by the cottage in the apple orchard where she will stay.
Dr. Hugo Peralta visits the island at the insistence of his boss. The distinguished brain surgeon is in desperate need of a respite before overwork makes him one of his own patients. He is surprised but pleased with the privacy and serenity of his cottage—across the orchard from Aislinn’s. An idyllic location on a magical island where love can blossom—if the Rowans can help the trio save Aislinn from whatever is killing her.
