Lysistrata Cove a new #gayromance by @DenaWrites #RLFblog

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

Captain Dena Hankins (denahankins.net) writes aboard her boat, preferably in a quiet anchorage. Previously a sex educator, she writes erotica and romances spanning the queer alphabet including three novels—Lysistrata Cove, Heart of the Liliko‘i, and Blue Water Dreams—with queer and trans leads.

Interview with Dena Hankins

Why did you write this book?
Heart of the Liliko‘i was a heavy book for me—heavy to think through, research, and write. My guy, James, and I were having coffee one morning and he asked what I’d be writing next. My answer was “Something fun!”
Since we were at anchor in Somes Harbor—a gorgeous, protected spot in Maine’s Acadia National Park—it was natural to go with a sailing story. Pirates showed up soon after, and by the time the coffee pot was empty, the story was roughed out and I knew I’d enjoy writing it.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love romance books, whether the leads are straight or queer, cisgender or trans. In my favorite romances, the characters find strengths they didn’t know they had or learn that they can do more together than they ever could apart.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Choosing between my fictional friends and lovers, parents and children, enemies and frenemies? What a struggle!
I’m going to go with one of the leads of the book I just finished: Kellen Ryan in Just Enough Light by AJ Quinn. She’s a bad-ass and still manages to open up to love.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
It’s about a bank robbery and the most unusual getaway you’ll ever read about! I’m trying to make Crime of Conscience an acknowledged genre.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Jack Azevedo captains his charter sailboat in the Caribbean. Life can’t get any better, especially once he discovers a mysterious uncharted island with a sugar-sand cove for his passengers to enjoy and an intriguing, if angry, inhabitant.
Superstar Eve La Sirena has an illicit plan to restore creative freedom to musicians worldwide…if she can keep an ocean between her public and her secrets. Jack’s arrival exposes her island retreat and jeopardizes years of work, but his sweet generosity whets her cruel appetites.
As a transmasculine gender explorer and BDSM bottom, Jack’s used to flouting convention, not the law. When Eve’s clandestine project draws three kinds of cops, everything he has is endangered. Will the maelstrom of emotion strip the civilized veneer from his piratical heart?

Take These Broken Wings by @LiviaQuinn #RLFblog Paranormal #giveaway

Today's featured book is Take These Broken Wings by Livia Quinn.

About the Book

Title Take These Broken Wings
Genre Paranormal Cozy
Author Livia Quinn
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Jack Lang knows first hand about Destiny's secrets--turns out he was one of them. Five months ago he and his unlikely band of heroes defeated some nasty creatures intent on taking advantage of the Paramortals' powerlessness during Chaos. After surviving the Chaos with the help of their resident dragon, Jack received the biggest shock of his life. And that was saying a lot.
He'd chosen Destiny for the normalcy and safety it could provide his teenager after a life of their own kind of chaos with Jordie's mother. He'd been looking for Mayberry. Instead he'd found not a town, but a world full of magical beings, odd occurrences, and quite frankly, monsters. Think, Middle Earth. There'd been one shock after another and yet, instead of leaving and taking Jordie somewhere "safe"… he'd stayed.
Looking back, everything had started when he met Tempest Pomeroy. That was when his world turned upside down—along with half the town. He'd surprised himself with his acceptance of the supernatural. And he'd almost accepted this latest blow, but that was before he found out he no longer belonged anywhere. Not with humans, and not among supernaturals. Something had gone haywire in his family DNA.
Now the women in his life feel he's abandoned them. Actually, he's abandoned everything except for the need to quench this gnawing hunger in his gut and the compulsion to jump off the highest levee in Laccasine Parish.
Too bad there were no mountains in Louisiana.

About the Author

Livia Quinn is a DC native who's lived on the bayou in Louisiana for thirty years. After experiencing weather disasters in the South, it was only natural that they would play a part in her Storm Lake world, a place where supernaturals and mere-mortals co-exist (but on different ends of the lake. That's one of the rules. Never let the mortals see you use your magic.)
