Carla was scared until Oscar and Daryl meet her on her return to the Islands, to meet her parents.  After confronting her, they realise that she is a new Immortal.

After staging her death, the pair convinces Carla to return to their Holy Ground, where they tell her everything that they know. They train her until the day comes that the Islanders grew suspicious of her presence there within the Old Viking Temple.

Deciding it’s safer to leave, they head out into the night in search of someone else who can tell them the truth about why they are Immortals. What will they find?

Can Oscar and Daryl survive outside of the Temple with a young Immortal?

How did they end up Immortal and why are they protecting her?

Gnomes of Suburbia by Viola Grace

What can I say about this book other than I love it!!! 

Abby is the artistic girl next door.  She has a anal retentive mother who dispises Abby's artictic abilities and the filth that comes with it.  She falls in love with a house and the fun starts there.  She soon learns the meaning of friendship, family and magic, not to metion that she is this generations Nexus...  what ever that is.  Luckily Abby has new friends to help her along the way. The only problem is that someone wants her gone and her wild magic.  Will Abby survive and will she find love in the process???

THis book has everything love, humor, action, friendship and romance. Once I started this I had to finish Abby's story.  I can't wait to read the second book in this series!!!

Love is Love with Deanna Wadsworth

     Well, first things first, I am ever so grateful that Brandy has allowed me to hijack her blog today. You're the bomb-diggity!

     We all know what holiday just passed, the ever popular and the often dreaded, Valentine's Day. And while we all may have different ideas about VD (I just love calling it that) we all know that during February everyone wants to talk about LOVE. Being in LOVE. Getting some LOVE. Showing LOVE. Reaidng about LOVE.

     Therefore, in the spirit of LOVE, I wish to remind everyone LOVE knows no bounds. LOVE knows no gender.

     LOVE is LOVE.

     And as romance writer, I suppose I am in the business of spreading the LOVE.

     No, I am not wearing a diaper or those gold shorts that Angel of Love is wearing either.

     What kind of LOVE am I spreading lately? Where are my arrows of Love and Lust being directed?

     Why hot man on man luvin’ of course!

     My fave thing to read and write.

     Have you ever read an m/m romance? That stands for male/male as I so awkwardly had to explain to my mother. As a woman who still cringes at the P-word (you know which one I mean)and finds that same bit of
anatomy ‘icky,’ how could I convince her of the appeal of two gorgeous men together?

     I couldn’t.

     So I just lied and said, "Well, it’s popular, Ma and I wanna sell books."


     Um…. (((hangs head to hide evil grin))))…yeah, I lied. But what mamma don’t know won’t hurt her! LOL

     In truth I have been avidly reading m/m for only a short time. I was introduced to it about a year ago but I was hooked from the get go. As a writer who suffers from WADD (Writers Attention Deficit Disorder) I never have a shortage of ideas simmering. And all of them lately are m/m.

     Why is this?

     Because two men in LOVE is a beautiful thing. What a gift to be allowed
to follow the special journey of two strong males as they let their guards down and become intimate together amidst prejudice, hatred, fears, intricate plots and obstacles! It is a Happily Ever After you have to read to believe.

     As a "Literary Cupid," my goal is to convert as many women as possible into reading m/m. I have converted most of my friends, I am happy to say!

     The rest of you have no idea what you are missing!!!

     If you are already an m/m reader you KNOW what I am talking about. If not, might I suggest stopping over at my http://deannawadsworth.blogspot.com/ , where you can read my FREE m/m short story LEAKING PIPES. You will never think of plumber’s crack the same way again!

     LEAKING PIPES is one of 25 m/m stories available for FREE download in an anthology put together by the awesome group M/M ROMANCE over on http://goodreads.com/. The collection is called STUFF MY STOCKING and the download link is on my http://deannawadsworth.blogspot.com/  He, he, he, see how sneaky I am making you visit my blog, too? Don’t worry there is plenty of eye candy to make it worth your while. And believe me…you won’t regret snatching up these naughty boys for your Kindle!

     I also have one more m/m book to add to your collection— which I know you will start building once you read your first m/m romance. It is my holiday erotic short story SECRET SANTA.

     All this weekend at http://rainbowebooks.com/ you can download SECRET SANTA for FREEE!!!

     Did you hear that?!
     I just hooked you up with two FREE BOOKS!!!
    Now before you leave the awesome Brandy’s blog in your rush to get a fix of hot man on man luvin,’ I would LOVE to know whether or not you have ever read an m/m novel or short story.
      If you have, what was it that you liked about it?
      If you haven’t, please leave a comment, as well.
     Everyone who leaves a reply will be entered in a random drawing to win my m/m erotic retelling of THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW from DECADENT PUBLISHING.

     Thanks for stopping by! And thanks Brandy for having me!

    And please don’t forget:

    Love is Love! It should be celebrated, embraced and enjoyed in all of its many facets!



Deanna Wadsworth is an erotica and m/m author. Her books are available at Decadent Publishing and on Amazon for Kindle. You can visit her blog Deanna Wadsworth- Midnight Ramblings of an Erotic Author and hang out with her on Deanna Wadsworth's Facebook Page where she enjoys posting pics of hot guys and chatting with folks about anything canine, book, sex or alcohol related!

Buy a Book & Help Wounded Warriors

I recently met a author, Rod Casteel, in a chat room.  We started to discuss books and he mentioned that he was trying to promote his book "Shore Leave" by Red Rose Publishing.  It is a contemporary, military romance and even better yet ALL the proceeds from sales go to "The Wounded Warriors" charity. Rod was in the Navy and knows how important it is to help our soldiers and their families in their time of need. Its available for purchase at a great price $2.69

For more information on The Wounded Warriors go to http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

Here is a blurb for Shore Leave:

What happens when you have the hots for your stepsister?
Chad has had feelings for his stepsister, Stacy for a long time. While exiting his ship for shore leave Chad receives a letter from Stacy telling him her feelings for him, now that she is divorced.
Stacy taking the biggest chance in her life, letting Chad know how much she desires him now that she is free to explore her feelings.
Now that she is free will Chad and Stacy be able to be able to do more than just trade those hot searing looks, or will they just be two ships passing in the dark?

R Casteel has written alot of great books and they can be found on his website through various publishers.

Purchase Shore Leave
