Keren Hughes lives in the UK and is an avid bookworm. She fondly remembers
the days where she would lie in her bedroom away from distraction and
get lost in the world of make believe. Her first real memory of
reading something she fell in love with was The Hobbit. In her
teenage years, she became addicted to Point Horror books like RL
Stine’s The Boyfriend, but she also enjoyed light Summer reads like
What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next.

Over the years she has come to realise that she is a bit of an OCD freak
about books. They have to be in perfect condition without the
slightest bit of damage.
She has been a book reviewer for the last few years and a book hoarder
for a LOT longer. You can NEVER have too many books! Her shelves are
bulging and overflowing but she always wants “just one more book”.
Keren had her first book published by Limitless Publishing in November
2013. It’s a YA Paranormal Romance novel called Stolen. Her second
book was published with LP in May 2014. This time, an NA Contemporary
Romance called Nothing Like The First Time.
She couldn’t have been more surprised when NLTFT appeared on the Amazon
Best Seller list. That was a dream come true.
Keren is currently working on more NA Contemporary Romances for you to fall
in love with.

Operation Toy Rescue ~ Release Blitz

 

 
Length: 29,000 words approx.
 
Publisher: JMS Books
 
Blurb
 

When Jules Evergreen lands in trouble at the North Pole and gets shipped off to Snow Hope Island for ninety days, he never expects to take up the cause of the forgotten toys waiting for new homes. Falling for his new boss is not on the agenda either, but his heart has other ideas.


Felix Winterson has grown up on Snow Hope Island and now runs the place. He isn’t thrilled when party boy Jules arrives, and Felix tries hard to ignore the man’s charms. He has other problems, anyway. For years he’s tried to get Santa to look at the growing inventory of damaged toys in the warehouse, to no avail.


When Jules comes up with a plan to save the toys, the men find themselves working closely together. As Christmas Eve looms, there’s a lot at stake. Can they save Snow Hope, convince Santa to rescue the toys, and fall in love all at the same time?

 
Excerpt



He was surprised that no one else was in the building yet. Unless they were upstairs in the loft, or locked away in an office. He thought he’d seen Eve’s coat hanging from a peg up front.


Jules opened the laptop and logged in, ready to get started. He really wanted to take that trip to the warehouse with Felix and the quicker he finished logging things in, the quicker that could happen. As he carefully opened a rather large box, he heard a door open and turned to see Felix, Eve, and Zuzu hurry out of Felix’s office. All wore a look of panic and his heart jumped.


“What’s wrong?” he asked as Eve grew closer.


“The Big Guy is coming for a visit three days before Christmas! We just found out. He never does this. Never, Jules.” Her voice rose as she spilled the news.


Jules glanced at Felix and caught his eye, holding it for a moment. “Isn’t Santa coming a good thing?” he asked, confused.


“We don’t know. He never does this. Never,” Eve reiterated.


“She’s right. He doesn’t. What if he wants to make major changes? Or move us to the North Pole?” Felix asked.


Jules crinkled his brow. In his mind, moving to the North Pole would be great. Felix would be closer to Jules. “You don’t want to live at the North Pole?”


All three of them looked at him in shock, their mouths gaping open.


“What?” he asked.


“The North Pole is headquarters. It’s chaos,” Zuzu explained.


Okay, I’ll give them that. But there were good things, too.


“But you’d be closer to …” he flicked his gaze to Felix and felt his cheeks heat up. “The main operation,” he finished lamely.


“But we like it here. Our island is beautiful and we’re like a family. What if we’re torn apart?”


“I don’t think Santa –”


“You don’t know, Jules,” Eve broke in. “Maybe he thinks we don’t do enough to help these toys.”


Felix was vigorously nodding his agreement, so Jules shut his mouth and sat down in front of his laptop, considering the possibilities. He finally glanced back up, his lips curving up into a small smile as he eyed all three. “Then I guess there’s only one thing to do, guys. We need to show Santa how important the island is to children all over the globe.”


“How do we do that?” Eve asked quietly, her brow furrowed.


“By developing a kick ass plan to get these ‘inadequate toys’ into the hands of kids,” he explained, using air quotes. It was really just expanding what he and Felix had talked about last night. But calling it a plan made it feel more real. More promising.


Again, they gaped at him. Well, all but Felix. He was grinning. Happiness filled Jules’s chest and his heart raced as he grinned back, warmth spreading through him. Their gazes held and Jules felt like Felix was peering inside of him. Like he was seeing the real Jules. Not the guy that always screwed up. Not the guy that only thought of himself. But the one that finally — finally — wanted to do something worthy. Something that would bring others joy.


“Jules is right. We need to work together to show Santa we can handle the responsibility of taking care of the toys on this island. To prepare them for new homes. To convince him to take them with him on Christmas Eve.” Felix straightened his shoulders as determination flitted across his face and hope flashed in his eyes.


Jules couldn’t look away. The man was beautiful in every way.

Holiday Home Hotel ~ Tour and Giveaway

The Holiday Home Hotel
by Lou Sylvre
Genre: M/M Supernatural Romance
Daren Novak and Gunny Schuler have known each other since freshmen days at
the University of Washington, where they’d started a romance Daren
assumed would last. But at the start of winter break, Gunny bowed to
the dictates of his lifelong religion and his overbearing father and
left UW never to return.
After a failed marriage, Gunny built a quiet life embracing his gay
identity, and left his North Dakota home, his marriage, and his
father’s business for a forestry and teaching career in Oregon.
Meanwhile, Daren has built up his own life around managing a unique
holiday venue, the Holiday Home Hotel, and performing for the guests
in drag as “Dare.”
A decade has passed since they last saw each other, but now winter’s
harsh weather brings them face to face—helped along by a minor
goddess and powerful forest spirit. Too much hurt might lie between
them now to fix things, but interfering supernatural beings are
determined to force them to try.
Lou Sylvre loves romance with all its ups and downs, and she likes to
conjure it into books. The sweethearts on her pages are men
who end up loving each other, and sometimes saving each
other from unspeakable danger. It’s all pretty crazy and very sexy.
As if you’d want to know more, she’ll happily tell you that she is
a proudly bisexual woman, a mother, grandmother, lover of languages,
and cat-herder. She works closely with lead cat and writing
assistant, the (male) Queen of Budapest, Boudreau St. Clair. She is
the author of the six well-loved books of the Vasquez and James
Series and holiday favorites,
Falling Snow on Snow
and
The Holiday Home Hotel.
She teamed up with Kiwi author Anne Barwell to write
Sunset
at Pencarrow
, an adventurous tale of New Zealand romance.

An Old Fashioned Christmas

An Old Fashioned Christmas

Available now – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KJCPR25/

 

The blanket was suddenly pulled away and Brax looked up at her from where he lay between her legs. “Awake, darlin’?”

“Oh yeah. This is the sort of alarm clock I like.”

He grinned. “Well, don’t expect it every morning. Unless you want me to wake you an hour before I normally get up.”

“An hour, huh? Doesn’t take me that long.”

He snorted. Then he spread her lips apart and took a long lick of her folds. “It takes as long as I say it does, doesn’t it?”

Her breath quickened at the dark note in his voice. She loved that voice. When he dominated her, it was as though every nerve in her body went on high alert. Those big hands moved up to her tummy, just resting there gently.

After Wyatt’s birth, there had been times when she’d felt like she was living in a stranger’s body. It had taken a long time for her to feel like herself again. To get her sex drive back.

“Yes, Sir,” she replied.

“Because your pleasure is only allowed with my permission, isn’t it, my sweet little sub?”

“Yes, Sir.”

He licked around her clit, one hand stayed on her tummy while the other drifted lower once more. He pressed a finger deep inside her. Just one. And it stayed there. She whimpered. Wanting more. Needing him to move. But he kept that finger still. Damn him.

“Lucky for you, I’m in a happy mood this morning. So you just lay back and let me have my morning treat.”

He cupped her breast, playing with her nipple. Squeezing it lightly. Then tugging on it sharply. She gasped as a surge of pleasure raced through her. He slid another finger into her pussy and started pumping.

“Oh God, Sir, please.” She was sitting right on the edge. So desperate to fall over. But she knew better than to do so without his permission. Her Dom had all sorts of ways of punishing her.

He stilled for a moment and stared up at her. There was a look in those gray eyes she couldn’t quite decipher.

She thought he was going to withhold his permission and she whimpered. He’d been known to keep her on the edge of pleasure for hours.
