Friendy Friday - Ariel Tachna and more!
Hey folks! I'm just wrapping up the Reviewer's Roundup through Totally Talented Promotions and next week we'll be doing an Instagram Hop! See, you can teach this dog new tricks. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @rlmerrillauthor and hop along with us! There will be prizes and fun to be had.
There are SO MANY Fabulous releases out right now and I want to share them all with you because, I'm telling you, I've got some amazingly talented friends out there. So here's a breakdown:
This week Ariel Tachna put out a new release from Dreamspinner and I can't WAIT to read this one. I loved her book Act Two, which is in this same series, so I'm excited to dive into this one. Ariel is a former teacher and she's a huge lover of purple! Plus, just looking at this cover, you know I am totally approving of the model's hair color choice. (I promise, my pink will be back before the Ides of March attack!) You can pick up your copy here:
Here's the blurb:
A love built to last.
When Derek Jackson is hired to renovate the LGBT bookstore that’s also Owen Hensley’s home, opposites attract. Derek is a big burly blue-collar guy, about ten years older than slight, sweet, and bookish Owen. As they spend time together, it becomes clear that each handsome outside leads to a beautiful interior. Far from the shy twink he appears, Owen has a rock-solid foundation that helped him put himself through college and start his own business. Behind Derek’s strong façade waits a tender heart that’s been battered by a rough family past—something Owen understands.
After Owen’s runaway nephew lands on his doorstep, it throws a wrench in their plans. Derek can’t ask Owen to choose, but he doesn’t think he can take second place with his lover the way he always has with his family. Can they find a way to keep their romance standing?
The multi-talented and super cool Xio Axelrod and I met a couple of years ago also when we were both in the Gone With The Dead anthology and I gotta say, she's smooth, hilarious, a passionate supporter of romance and, especially, LGBTQ stories. She's in this fantastic anthology AND I will be joining her for another group project in June! I can't wait! She's so much fun and writes such sexy stories...Plus, music. I love chatting with her about music and was so excited when I saw this cover. So check it out, you can pick up your copy here FOR A LIMITED TIME! The stories are all based on songs, so you know that's catnip for me.
And speaking of anthologies? It's almost Valentine's Day...so what do you need in your life? Wild and zany tales of the Worst Valentine's Day Ever with me and the gang! Dalton and Orrie are back with hilarious hijinks involving Orrie's nephews and wildlife. I hope you'll check out our groovy collection, the second in the Worst Ever series with more to come! It's available on Amazon and in KU RIGHT NOW!
And last, but certainly not least, if you're an historical fan... Not only do I have Kerrigan Byrne's latest cover to share with you, but also, up-and-comer Tabetha Waite has a new release.
I met Tabetha at RWA this summer and she's just the bees' knees. Her stories sound like all historical fans want and more! Plus, she's awesome. Pick up her latest release Who The Marquess Dares to Desire here! And then get all stupid hot-and-bothered over the new series, The Devil You Know, from Kerrigan Byrne coming out later this year..
