Blogtour: A Dom And His Warrior by Xenia Melzer

Please say hello to Xenia Melzer and 

A Dom And His Warrior 

Club Whisper #3


Leeland Drake and Jonathan White are a committed BDSM couple and have just moved in together. Leeland has only one year left in college, and everything seems perfect… until Leeland’s uncle asks him to stand in for an injured UFC fighter.

Leeland wants to help his uncle, but he remembers all too well from his years competing in martial arts how strenuous life as an athlete can be. He doesn’t want to risk his relationship with Jonathan. After some discussion, they decide Leeland will go pro for a year.

As if the training and strict diet weren’t bad enough, the pressure skyrockets when Leeland encounters homophobic fighter Tommy Adams—especially when they end up facing each other in the championship

Between the bigoted rants of his opponent, the scrutiny of the media, the pressure from his sponsor, and a fire in his uncle’s gym, Leeland is close to breaking down. Only Jonathan’s support and love keep him focused enough to set foot in the octagon once more—and maybe even walk away a winner.

Food for Champions
An athlete’s diet is torture.
Before I go deeper into this, I have to make a confession: I love food. Especially the kind that clogs up your arteries, thickens your blood, damages your teeth, eats away at your bones, and forces your liver to put in some extra hours. You know, the good stuff like pasta with a thick sauce, tiramisu, mousse au chocolat, cakes, fries… Okay, okay, I think you get the gist. Back to the blog…
In my youth I had several friends who did sports seriously, one of them even on Olympic level, so I had some memories about food restrictions during training and competing. To be on the safe side, I researched an MMA fighter’s diet and what I found was pure horror – at least for me. It also gave me a wonderful red thread of comic relief for the entire book, so there’s that.

Blogtour: Nightfall by John Inman

Please welcome John Inman with 



Joe Chase and Ned Bowden are damaged men. They each bear scars from surviving the world they were born in. Deep scars, both physical and emotional.

When fate offers its first kind act by bringing the two together, suddenly their scars don't seem so bad, and their lives don't feel so empty.

Yet that kindness comes at a price.

Just as Joe and Ned begin to experience true happiness for the very first time, the world turns on them again.

But this time it turns on everyone.

A really big thank you to everyone at My Fiction Nook, for letting me talk about my new book for a minute.  Science fiction is a new genre for me, so I was kind of scared going into it, but once I got rolling I found I really enjoyed the freedom it gave me to play with certain facts a bit.

NIGHTFALL tells the story of two damaged guys who fall in love during a time of global upheaval.  The planet is thrown into chaos when the light from the sun is blocked out completely, leaving the earth in utter darkness.  Trapped in the chaos from this disastrous event, our main characters, Joe Chase and Ned Bowden, try to understand and hold onto their growing feelings for each other, even while trying to simply stay alive during the social unrest that follows what's happening around them.

ARC Review: Strays by A.J. Thomas

Orphaned at a young age and raised in the foster system, Jory Smith has no idea he’s half incubus. He only knows he has the power to heal people, making himself sick in the process. Exploited by a crooked faith healer who sells his abilities and his life to the highest bidder and then left for dead, Jory flees, falling into a job at a small-town cafĂ© where he can put his lifelong obsession with baking to good use.

But the minister who exploited him wants him back.

Exiled hellhound-turned–bounty hunter Malpheus Pelle has no idea why his human client wants him to track down an incubus. Jory is traumatized and afraid to touch anyone, an emotional handicap that could prove fatal for a demon who requires physical contact. Needing answers, Mal concocts a disastrous plan: pretend to date Jory to uncover the truth. Unfortunately, his plan never included dealing with an ancient demon assassin, Jory’s orgasmic pumpkin cookies, or losing his heart to the incubus he’s supposed to be hunting….

Jewel's rating:

I love mythology and fantasy in modern settings. Give me a mix of the familiar and the fantastic and I am one happy camper. fit the bill pretty well for me with its quirky mix of mythology, religion, and cupcakes.

Jory Smith grew up in the system. He never knew his parents and was passed from foster home to foster home until he was taken in by a faith healer (ie con man). You see, Jory can actually heal people, and though he doesn't actually believe what the good old reverend preaches, at least Jory can actually heal. It comes at a high cost, however, because every time he heals someone, he takes on their illness and each time it hurts a little worse, and the reverend will use him up until he's dead -- which is kind of what happens!

What he would rather be doing, however, is baking. Baking is Jory's passion and where he gets the most feelings of joy and accomplishment. Baking is one of those simple joys that can bring happiness to others, and Jory is amazingly good. After being left for dead, Jory runs as far as he can and finds himself a spot in a cafe making pastries and cakes.

After the death of his wife, Tanner Rowe takes a step toward making her dream come true and buys the house with the dilapidated barn she’d been inexplicably drawn to in the picturesque Upper Peninsula. But after a year, he still can’t get past his grief long enough to make the repairs he’d promised.

Recently out of prison, Cole Lachlan has little to his name. Homeless, broke, and without many options as a felon, Cole heads to Red Bluff with hopes of a second chance. There, he meets Tanner, whose loneliness mirrors his own and soon, Cole is trading room and board for rebuilding the burned-out barn on Tanner’s property that hasn’t been touched in seventy years.

Turns out, the barn holds a lot more secrets than either of them could have imagined. After unearthing a hidden journal from 1948, Cole and Tanner spend their evenings poring through the pages and reading about a young man pining after his best friend. As they delve deeper into this forbidden affair from the past, the more Cole and Tanner’s own relationship shifts—from acquaintance to friend…to undeniable attraction.

But as they begin to deal with the newness of falling in love amid Cole’s past and Tanner’s loss, they also become more determined to unravel the mystery of the young lovers who’ve captured their hearts, the rumors about the fire, and what really happened that fateful night.

Tanner’s eyes snapped open. He didn’t know what had woken him so suddenly, but the moment he did, he realized he’d fallen asleep with Cole on the couch, that Cole’s head was on his shoulder.

It was a little weird…and a little not weird…or maybe he was looking for it to be weird or not? As he sat there a moment, focusing on the heat of Cole against him, the feel of his head on his shoulder, it felt good. Christ, Cole felt good to him.

It wasn’t the first time that seeing Cole, touching his skin, studying his hands or his back, felt right. That truth hit him in the gut, so the moment Cole groaned in his sleep and turned his head, Tanner slipped out from under the blanket.

For a moment he considered trying to lay Cole down. Did his knee hurt? Was the position uncomfortable? But he didn’t know how to do it or if he should do it, and he suddenly really fucking needed to get out of the house.

Tanner shoved his feet into his shoes. Thankfully, he was wearing jeans and a tee he’d put on before going to look for Cole last night. His keys were on the kitchen counter, so he swooped them up and quietly sneaked out of the house.

Last night had been…something. How he could breathe easier after the loss of Emma, how much Cole’s friendship meant to him, Tom and Charlie, and falling asleep on the couch. It was…a lot, and he wished like hell he had his fishing supplies so he could go fishing.

So what could he do?
