To the outside world, Mav Ryan is living the dream. With a high profile and successful FMX career, it’s something Mav knows a million guys would kill to have. But not him. He yearns for something different, something more.

Aubrey James has had enough of bad boys to last a lifetime. When her brother, Josh, brings home the heavily tattooed definition of a bad boy, Mav, she wants nothing to do with him. It's not until a shadow from Aubrey’s past threatens her future, that to her surprise, Mav steps in.

But can he fight her demons as well as his own? Or will Mav realise that sometimes breaking away can lead to finding your home?


by Megan Lowe

I knew there was something about these Ryan boys when Reed first started talking to me. I had intended Breaking the Cycle to be a standalone, the only book in a series, although it can’t really be called a series then can it? Then, I had an idea for No Place to Hide and that’s when Rocking Racers really took off. All of a sudden I had five other Ryans talking at me, clamouring for me to tell their story.

Mav, the subject of Breaking Away, was the loudest, the most persistent. I wrote his book the fastest of any book I’ve written. Okay, so that’s only four, but just go with me here! Mav just kept talking and talking. For the one I dubbed the “mysterious” Ryan, I thought that was impressive. Mav surprised me at every turn, but what was most surprising was how he totally and utterly captured my heart. I hope he has similarly captured yours.

I never gave much thought to who Mav was in BTC. He had such a small part there was no need. But in No Place, that’s where he really came out of his shell. I had no idea about any of it! I didn’t plan it that way, I had no thought of things turning out like they did, it was all what Mav wanted. I know I sound a little crazy, but that’s how it happened.

So what is it about Mav that stole my heart?

The fact that he feels like he has to shoulder all this responsibility for his family, his sense of loyalty to them, the wy he’d do almost anything to avoid disappointing them. In that way, I guess he’s a lot like me. But with Mav, he wants to take the whole world on his shoulders and he tries to do that. He’s a gentle soul in the midst of a very testosterone dominated family. I think he thinks that makes him weak, but I beg to differ. What Mav did (and I’m not going into that here, if you want to find out, you’ll have to read his story!) takes a tremendous amount of courage and I think that, more than anything shows how incredibly strong he is.

I love writing strong characters but who also have their flaws, their doubts. Mav is no exception but because his doubts are so heavy on his mind I think it makes him so much more human, more lovable.

Mav’s not perfect, in fact, there might be times when you want to smack him over the head, but none of us are.

I absolutely loved writing Mav’s story, and there is more to come for him and Aubrey, as well as the rest of the Ryans.

I hope you enjoy Breaking Away and if you do, please consider leaving a review!

What happens when delicious blue-collared men find the one they’re destined to be with?

With heartwarming happily ever afters, meet three couples in Found You, Losing You, and Still You as these red-hot men embark on their journeys of self-discovery and love.

Over 500 pages of escapism wrapped up in so many delicious sexy words.



🔧Found You by Dahlia Donovan
Kent Casado has lost everything that defined him: his construction business, his husband, his home, and his fortune. He went from one of the first gay men to marry in Colorado, to the first to be divorced. Crushed and alone, his only recourse is to move into a hurricane-damaged cottage in Key West, but his troubles seem to follow him to the beach paradise.

Dusk “Doctor Dusky” Keller has never allowed himself to be defined by anyone or anything. Growing up in the Keys with his hippie parents, he ran an animal hospital until a hurricane destroyed it. He never expects to fall straight into lust with an uptight stranger who he sees on his daily beach walks.

Satisfied with a prolonged one-night stand, neither expects to plummet from casual to complicated. 

🛠Losing You by Gen Ryan
After a tragic accident, aspiring pro-surfer Brad Morris leaves his hometown of California to try to forget his pain. Unable to swim or surf since his loss, he focuses on a new career as a car mechanic and restorer. After years of struggling, Brad finally agrees to get help and attempts to gain back the parts of himself he lost that day in the ocean. 

Colton James gave his all to his partner, Ben, but his all wasn’t enough. Dumped after buying Ben’s dream home, he buries himself further in his career as a police officer. But when he meets Brad, all bets are off, and Colton begins to question what’s more important: a job, or the one you love?

Clouded by their pasts, will both men be able to see beyond those they lost in order to have a future together?

🔩Still You by Amy K. McClung
For Eden, life revolves around making sure his sister and niece are taken care of while building his landscaping business. Love certainly hasn’t been a priority. From the moment he meets his new client, his outlook on what’s important changes.

For Adam, the last two years have been spent helping his best friend, Maggie, grieve for her late husband while helping take care of her kids. Between his work at the hospital, and supporting his friend, finding time for himself has not been his priority. When Eden knocks on his door one summer morning, he knows life will never be the same.

Mistakes and misunderstandings are always difficult to navigate. Can Adam convince Eden he’s still the only man for him before it’s too late?

Cover & Blurb Reveal: The Bunny and The Billionaire by Louisa Masters

Spending their fortunes and losing their hearts.
Title: The Bunny and The Billionaire
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 01-Oct-17
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Designer: Bree Archer
PREORDER BUY LINKS:

Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy Léo Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. Léo, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only Léo's world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.

As they make allowances for each other's foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and Léo widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance, and they're not ready to say goodbye.
Louisa Masters started reading romance much earlier than her mother thought she should. While other teenagers were sneaking out of the house, Louisa was sneaking romance novels in and working out how to read them without being discovered. She’s spent most of her life feeling sorry for people who don’t read, convinced that books are the solution to every problem. As an adult, she feeds her addiction in every spare second, only occasionally tearing herself away to do things like answer the phone and pay bills. She spent years trying to build a “sensible” career, working in bookstores, recruitment, resource management, administration, and as a travel agent, before finally conceding defeat and devoting herself to the world of romance novels.

Louisa has a long list of places first discovered in books that she wants to visit, and every so often she overcomes her loathing of jet lag and takes a trip that charges her imagination. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she whines about the weather for most of the year while secretly admitting she’ll probably never move.

Can Angela survive with her heart and her wings intact?



My Favorite Scene to Write in Virtue and Honor
by Randi Perrin

There are a lot of really good scenes in Virtue and Honor, so it’s hard to pin down just one.

The prologue was written to be jarring to anyone who was vested in the series, and I relished in how much I was going to shake up everyone’s world. I was literally doing the evil cackle as I wrote that.

The opening scene at the strip club, that one was fun as well. The first sex scene in this one took several tries to get right, but I loved how it turned out. It’s sappy and romantic, which is generally not my style, but for these two, it was so perfect.

I also had so much fun writing interactions between Mason and Angela’s dad. Next to Cheryl, he’s the most sarcastic character in the bunch, and so very much fun to write.

However, if I’m forced to choose, and it looks like I am, my favorite scene is the one in the garage when Angela is running late and has to pick up her work badge from Mason.

Why?

It actually happened. It didn’t involve a vintage Trans Am, rather my Mazda 3, and a pack of hot dogs instead of a work badge.

My friend apologized all over herself, as she knows how I am about my car, but I was laughing so damn hard I was crying. She looked at me and said, “that has to go in your next book.”

My response: “Challenge accepted.”

It took a couple tried to get it right, as my first instinct was to have it happen with a different character. With a pack of hot dogs. However, as writing is a whole lot of trial and error, that didn’t feel right, so I scrapped it and tried again with different circumstances. Finally, success.

Lesson learned: never throw something to someone in a running car in the rain.
