Cutie Pies
Blogtour , Bookteaser / March 20, 2018

Hi, I’m Barbara Bell, romance author extraordinaire, and welcome to the blog tour for my debut novella Cutie Pies! Over the next week I will be travelling the internet sharing some thoughts on my book. Follow along and join the discussion! About Cutie Pies Joey works at Cutie Pies, the smallest adult store in Sydney. After his parents kicked him out years ago, the haphazard shop became his home away from home and is the only place where he can embrace his queer, quirky, and—okay—sometimes a little awkward self. When Mick, a new-to-town customer, walks in asking for a dildo, Joey thinks it’s all a part of the day’s work. Except Mick’s large dark eyes, shy smile, and kissable lips—along with the ten-inch dildo he bought—quickly win him a starring role in Joey’s nightly fantasies. Joey can’t stop thinking about him, and Mick’s continued visits to the store make him even harder to forget. Mick is shy and sweet, but also secretive and uncertain. As the two grow closer together, Joey starts to wonder what Mick really wants from him, and whether he can risk falling in love with someone who might not be free to love him back. About…

The Riptide Affair
Personal / March 16, 2018

Dear readers of this blog, Like so many others already have done, I am aware of all that has been going on lately in the world of Romance, and specifically around Riptide Publishing. I have been working with Riptide promoting their books for years now and they have never treated me wrong in any way. I really do sympathise with everyone who feels they have been wronged, but the discussion needs to be somewhere else. My blog is not the place for this and therefore I will not allow any comments or posts smearing Riptide or any author, reader, blogger or whatever else. I have already deleted several comments in this matter and I will continue to do so. Normal comments will of course still be allowed. I have spoken with Riptide and they assured me everything is being taken care of. I will continue working with them on blog tours in the future, and trust in the fact they will do whatever is necessary to get things right again. I do not condone discrimination in any way and the people responsible should be dealt with. But, as a gay man myself, I have never felt Riptide Publishing thought less…

Leave comments on the tour posts for a chance to win a $10 Riptide Publishing gift card! About New Heights After attending a friend’s wedding in New York, James Thompson is eager to go home, even though no one will be waiting for him at the gate. He has no expectations for his trip back to Charleston other than long lines, security, and bad airplane food. But when an annoying—albeit hot—stranger cuts him in line, James is determined not to be a pushover for once. For Mika “It’s Mee-kuh, not Micah” Bailey, today’s just another day of boring work travel. That is, until his flight gets delayed, and some irritating (but handsome) guy keeps hogging all the good power outlets. Which means war. In the middle of an airport. In New York. What could go wrong? Eventually, they declare a truce, and as they get to know each other, their attraction overwhelms them both. Terrified of what he’s feeling, Mika…

Wheels and Heels
Blogtour , Bookteaser / March 13, 2018

About Wheels and Heels As a teenager, Ira Bedford fled a troubled home life and people who didn’t understand his penchant for feminine things. In the city, he fell in with Cedric, who found him work as an underage stripper. It took him years to escape Cedric’s influence and try to build a life of his own. Now, he just wants to be left alone to create his art. But Cedric’s on-going harassment means Ira had to drop out of art school, is squatting in a friend’s apartment, and is still relying on his allure as a sexy, skirt-wearing exotic dancer to pay his bills. Then he meets Jed. Part-time bartender and the apartment building’s superintendent, Jed is just the right mix of strong, kind, and protective to pull Ira out of hiding. He also welcomes Ira into his chosen family at the Hen and Hog Pub. But Ira yearns for more. Still, he doesn’t dare to hope that Jed will want him and his questionable past, his skirts and high heels, his hang-ups, and the profession he seems unable to escape. But Jed will do anything to prove him wrong. Available now from Riptide Publishing! About Jaime Samms Jaime…
