Hello all! I’m super excited to announce that the THIRDS, along with A Rose by Any Other Name has moved on from the nomination round to the voting round of The Romance Reviews Readers Choice Awards!! Thank you all so much for nominating the fellas. I really hadn’t expected all four books to make it through. This is the final round of voting and the winners will emerge the Readers’ Choice. If you’d like to vote for the fellas, you’ll find the links below. You’ll have to be signed in to vote. Voting starts October 3rd and ends October 31st.
** Since all four books made it to the voting round, I know it might be tough to choose one, so if you’re unsure which, I would say Hell & High Water since it’s the first in the series and the introduction to our men of mischief.
Hello all! Hard to believe September is almost over. Where has the time gone? Next thing you know Halloween has come and gone, then Thanksgiving, Christmas, and we’re celebrating the start of a new year. It’s crazy! Personally, I’m looking forward to the temperatures dropping below 90 here in Central Florida. As we near winter (which I’m sure will make some folks wish it were summer again), The Romance Reviews is hosting their Winter 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards. I’ve already mentioned how the THIRDS are in the Paranormal Romance category, but I wanted to mention A Rose by Any Other Name which is in the GLBT Historical Romance category. If you find yourself voting, please consider voting for one or all of the books in the GLBT Historical Romance category because we could use some historical romance lovin’.
Here are the books up for nomination in GLBT Historical Romance, along with their links:
A Rose by Any Other Name by Charlie Cochet
Nights in the roaring city remind bright young things that life’s too short to take for granted. Tucked away in Times Square hides the Pantheon: a secret cabaret for wealthy gay men. Pretty young men in elaborate costumes and rouged lips are eager to please, and the champagne flows all night long. It’s a world of frivolity, fantasy, and debauchery. As Eros, the most sought after performer at the Pantheon, Julius uses his beauty and charm on enthusiastic patrons, but growing weary of superficial love, he longs to make a better life for himself.
Five years after being declared mentally unfit after surviving the trenches of No Man’s Land, Edward Joseph Clarence Junior pieced his shattered life back together. Now he’s ready to take on the family empire. To celebrate his thirtieth birthday, Edward’s cousin takes him to the most posh nightclub in town, the Pantheon. Falling under the sway of Eros, Edward and Julius find a love they’ve never imagined and the chance for a future they had only dared to dream about. But as Ares, a notorious gangster and Julius’s most important—and dangerous—client watches them, the threat to their love and their lives grows by the day. Book One, Roses in the Devil’s Garden, was published in Don’t Read in the Closet by Charlie Cochet and is available as a free download from All Romance eBooks.
When Brayden, a devastatingly handsome heir to a prominent Southern family, is caught in a compromising position with his handsome male lover Jackson, life as he knows it comes crashing down. Exiled from the only home he’s ever known and separated from his love, Brayden is ordered to live in Boston where he is expected to become a true man and a proper successor.
But life will show him that things don’t always go as planned…
When Brayden encounters the mysterious and powerful, Vincent Gallaud, he instead embarks on an unforgettable adventure with his newfound king in the tantalizing world of New York City, forsaking everything he has ever known. Taking him on a journey he never expected and teaching him lessons that Daddy would never approve.
Back home, Jackson has no choice but to consent to marry Brayden’s greatest adversary and twin sister, Annabelle Steed. Consumed with greed and longing for revenge, Annabelle will stop at nothing to rob Brayden of his birthright and his happiness.
A perfect life—until one letter threatens to unravel it all….
Lady Vanessa Cambury, Marchioness of Camburton, adores her life of bucolic contentment with her partner, acclaimed portrait painter Nora White. Together, they have raised two children from Vanessa’s first marriage and built a home filled with purpose, ease, happiness, and passion—always passion.
But when Nora receives word that the child she lost twenty years ago is alive and in England, ancient heartache threatens to destroy their idyll.
To salvage their love, they must come to a deeper understanding of who they are—in the world, and to one another. Nora must learn to overcome the dark shadows of her past. Vanessa must learn to put others’ needs before her own. And Nora’s stubborn daughter must find it in her heart to forgive the mother she thought abandoned her. This unconventional family must rely on the powerful links of love and mercy to bind them back together.

Seconds, on my old blog I had themed days which I managed to keep up with for a while, and I thought now that the new website is up and running, Id get back to those daily themes. I’ll do my best to stick with them and unless there’s something like an announcement or blog hop, they’ll be pretty regular. Here are the themes and what those posts will generally consist of, though I’m sure they’ll expand along the way.
Yesterday I woke up to no internet, phone, or TV service. A problem which wouldn’t get sorted until this afternoon. However finding this lovely review for Chance in my inbox couldn’t have come at a better time, as I’m busy working away on Johnnie’s story for his upcoming deadline (more about that soon!).
Susan Mac Nicol from The Romance Reviews had some truly wonderful things to say about the book. I’m so glad she enjoyed it. She said,
“This was truly a story unlike anything I’ve read in this genre before. The characters themselves are all so well drawn and portrayed, the writing flows and ebbs with emotions and wonderful situations, and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The plot is well thought through, the relationship between Chance and Jacky beautifully written with sympathy, humour and the inevitable growing affection between the two men.”
