Spaghetti Western

A Novel in the Delectable Series

Cordon Bleu-trained chef Riley Emerson arrives in Aspen, Colorado for a summer at the best restaurant in town, only to discover his jerk of a boyfriend has dumped him, leaving his heart and his plans in tatters. Doubting himself and longing for a change of pace, he takes a low-paying position at the Rocking Z guest ranch, though he expects nature up close and personal won’t hold a candle to his exciting Paris lifestyle.

When born-and-bred cattle rancher Colby Zane spots a newcomer being pawed at by a passel of horny cowboys at Aspen’s Club Rawhide, he rushes in, throws the guy over his shoulder, and rescues him. Sober, Riley Emerson is sweet and sexy, but not interested in more than a one-night stand. Still, Colby’s over the moon when Riley later arrives as the new cook on his family’s ranch.

But all’s not well at the Rocking Z. Unsurmountable financial problems force them to seek a cash infusion from outside investor Fitz Wellington. Fitz is hot for Colby, and he won’t sign on the dotted line without some very personal incentives. The future of the ranch is at stake, and Colby’s just that desperate, but saving the Z might mean losing Riley.

A Matter of When – Giveaway

September 15, 2014

I’ve spent the day chatting about A Matter of When, now let’s get to the fun part, shall we?  How about a giveaway of an e-book copy?

But first, let’s talk about the little things that make life sweeter.

Rocker Henri can afford the finer things in life, but is won over by Sebastian’s kindness, highlighted in one simple gesture: a tuna fish sandwich unlike any he’s had before, because “anything worth doing is worth doing well.”

The sandwich reminds Henri of the when he was younger and his mother used to show affection with food. Sometimes we overlook the simplicity of the love baked into our favorite cookies, or a loved one making us soup when we don’t feel well.

Instead of simply entering a comment and telling me you like to enter the contest, why not name one comfort food that brings back good memories? You don’t have to, mind you, but I’d love to hear your stories.

A Tooth for a Fang Release Party: The glorious exit…

September 4, 2014

Liv Olteano, spamificating you guys for the last time today :D
It’s been a great day, and I thank you all for joining along on my A Tooth for a Fang spamification campaign at the DSP blog!

Three days. Three dead bodies. One newly turned, broken-hearted lycan tracker to figure out the connection.

The one summer Rick Barton takes a vacation, all hell breaks loose. Running from an abusive relationship leads him into the arms of hard-nosed lycan Travis Chandler, who gives him little choice but to become a lycan too and join the Paranormal Bureau of Investigation. Out of options, Rick joins the weird organization, expecting some two weeks of training and an adjustment period. Tough luck, he doesn’t get either. On his first day, his new partner offers to promote him to field agent if they get mated—less time wasted on training, more time on the field, and considering Rick is the only tracker the Bureau has on hand when a wave of strange murders hits the community, time is of the essence.

Someone’s killing the leaders of the paranormal world and mutilating the bodies. Investigating and tracking clues is enough of a challenge, and Rick must contend with an impatient Council, Travis’s advances, and actually adjusting to being a lycan. Only one thing is certain: Rick’s new life promises plenty of interesting adventures—as long as he can survive.

A Tooth for a Fang Release Party: Excerpts of doom

September 4, 2014

Three days. Three dead bodies. One newly turned, broken-hearted lycan tracker to figure out the connection.

Now, I thought I’d introduce Rick and Travis by giving you guys a few sneak peeks into their interaction :D Are you ready? Here we go… Oh, beware, some casual cussing ahead, lol.

Excerpt from Ch 6:
” I followed Travis through the bowels of the building until we finally reached the parking lot.
“We’re gonna drive? I thought we’d do something cool, like run in super-speed or something.”
He turned around with one eyebrow high up. “You’ve been reading too many comics, baby.”
I snorted. “Whatever. So what do you drive, a bike?”
He slapped the back of my head. “You might end up running behind the car if you keep that up.”
He picked a direction and started walking. I scratched my nape and followed, a pattern that was starting to get on my nerves. He slid into a black Spider and popped open the passenger door for me. Well damn, the man drove something almost as hot as he was. I got in and closed the door just in time for him to drive off like a madman.
“Dude, you’re gonna break the Spider‘s legs,” I muttered clutching the seat.
He snorted. “Don’t be a pussy, Ricky boy. I don’t like pussies.” He grinned and looked at me sideways. “And no worries, I take good care of what’s mine.” ”

Excerpt from Ch 7:
” Travis reached out and grabbed my elbow, pulling me against his body. “Hey, you okay?”
I groaned. “Sensory overload.”
He dragged me in some random direction and I followed with complete trust that he’d save me. It wasn’t a thought but pure instinct that led me to have such trust. And my instincts were proven right, too, when I found myself in a dark room with him holding me, running a hand up and down my spine and rubbing his lips against my temple. It worked to calm me down a lot, so I leaned into him and took all the comfort I could get. I sure as hell needed it.
“Feeling better?” he whispered against my temple.
I nodded and leaned my nose into his throat, greedily inhaling his scent. “God, this feels good.”
He sighed. “Yeah, it does. I’m sorry. It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have gotten you out on the field so soon. You’re a tracker, by definition sensitive to scents. I’m a total dick, sorry.”
I chuckled. “But a great dick, I’m sure.”
I trailed my nose and lips over his throat, barely touching. The space between us felt electric, hot enough to burn. I wanted to close that space, to make it disappear. I pushed myself into him, felt my heart throb at the simple contact.
He groaned. “What are you doing, pup?”
“Taking advantage of the privacy to settle my nerves. Which you rattled, Mr. Chandler.” ”

Excerpt from Ch 10:
” Travis slid out of the driver’s seat and strode by my side. “So you’re gonna meet our coroner. She’s… special.”
“Unique snowflake and all that shit, yeah, I get it.”
He shook his head as we got into the building. “No, I mean she’s gonna be really special, particularly to you. Try to not offend her.”
We got into the elevator and went down. I turned my head to look at his strangely serious profile. “What makes her so special?”
“She’s a troll.”
“You’re shitting me.”
He snorted. “Trolls are, well, it’s not politically correct to say it, but butt ugly. And they smell. Like, stink. Badly. Real, real bad for you, I’m guessing.”
I groaned. “My head is already pounding, don’t fuck with me.”
He sighed. “Just try to, you know, not be too outspoken about your… first impression.”
I rolled my eyes, pretty sure he was shitting me. “Didn’t you smell the scents on the scenes? That dark spices, thick but not obnoxious, smell?”
He shook his head. “Out of my whiffing range, I guess. Nobody but you picked up on them, or they would’ve mentioned it. That’s why having a tracker out there is so important.”
“Meaning it’s why you cut my training short to about a second.”
He shrugged. “Best way to learn how to swim is to get in the water.”
Also, the best way to get drowned, but I didn’t share the thought. The elevator doors dinged open. When we got off, we went down the
corridor and then took a left. The most revolting stink crawled up my nose and made my eyes water.
“Shit, don’t you people use freezers around here?” I muttered holding a hand to my nose.
Travis whipped up a small box out of his pocket. He flipped the lid, took some cream looking stuff, and smeared it under his nose. Then he extended it to me.
I took a whiff and cringed. “I can’t decide if this is better or worse as far as stinks go.”
He grinned. “Much, much better, trust me. Just smear a good dollop of it under your nose.”
I figured the evil I knew was better than the one I didn’t, so I did it. Then Travis pushed open a door and I almost fell back on my ass. The stink was impossible to describe, just a stinging, raging, torturous degree of revulsion that I couldn’t even fully encompass in words.
I took a step back, shaking my head. “Hell no. I am not going in there, man.”
Travis shook his head. “Don’t be a dick. Come on.”
I narrowed my eyes. “I’m not supposed to be a pussy, now I can’t be a dick. What else is there?”
He shrugged. “Switzerland?”
“I think I’m gonna pass out.”
He shook his head. “Just take small, shallow breaths and try not to focus on the smell okay? Come on.”
I tried, God help me, but it didn’t do much good. We went through the doors and came into the morgue, metal tables, and some bodies around. Some were human looking, others animals and a few lycans. Then there were the ones stuck in-between. Seeing them bothered me more than the others, which was silly. It was too soon to be playing favorites already, and yet it seemed I was.
“Were they all murdered?” I asked looking around.
“Two of them are agents who died on the job last night. The third one is their killer,” said a sweet female voice.
I shook my head and turned around toward the source of that voice. And my mouth went agape, eyebrows fully up on my forehead.
She was about four feet high, a mix of toxic green and crusty shit brown. Her skin looked as if it was bubbling, little blisters that now and
then burst open emanating the most revolting stink in the universe. It came off her in horrible waves. Her eyes were an almost warm chocolate brown, wide mouth with jagged teeth opened either in a smile or a menacing show of teeth, I couldn’t decide. I ran a hand over my face trying to get a grip on.
“I’m Dr. Lora Pane, nice to meet you,” she said reaching out.
Travis cleared his throat. “He’s my mate, Doc. No touching, you know the rules.”
She giggled, I think, though it sounded like a mix between hysterical barfing and a cat mewling in its death throes. ”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What do you guys think, how does it sound? :D
Now, since you’ve seen them in action a bit, I thought we could do something fun together :D I’d love your help with it. In a couple of hours, I’ll come back with a playlist for these guys.
After “meeting” them too, how about you help me with some suggestions? Pretty pwease? Hehe.
Then we can compare notes when you see my ideas. Your suggestions are making it into the complete A Tooth for a Fang official playlist, btw :D
Sounds like gun? Awesome, fire away! *prepares to take notes*

See ya in a couple hours!

A Tooth for a Fang Release Party: The glorious entrance… :D

September 4, 2014

Hey everyone!

I’m Liv Olteano, and this is my first time spamificating the awesome DSP blog *mwahahahaha* It’s a pleasure to meet everyone!

I guess I should properly introduce myself since it’s my first time here, right? I’m a total techy geek, I’d gadget-ize the living hell out of everything around me. Step two would be to customize the living hell out of all the gadgets around, haha. I’m hopelessly romantic, but I have a quirky way of showing it. Okay, who am I kidding, I’m quirky by large. And proud of it, too! It’s quirks that make us each interesting :D
I merrily unleash my geekdom upon any and all unsuspecting victims. I take great pride in my geekdom :D And, for now, you guys are my victims *mwahahaha*
Am I the only one totally in lurve with gadgets and customizations here? You guys love them too, right? Right? :D

I’m SO excited to be here today! We’ll chat, hopefully also about my first full-length novel that came out just yesterday with Dreamspinner Press, A Tooth for a Fang, available in ebook and paperback. It’s an Adult Mystery/Suspense Paranormal Romance that features two badass and somewhat snarky guys, Rick and Travis, and the love story that develops between them as they’re trying to catch a killer. It’s a bumpy road to their happy ending, because… well, I’m not spoiling it. :) I am hoping you’ll join them on the road to it, hehe.
So, snarky, somewhat smartass characters – I kind of love them as a reader, do you?

I thought we’d celebrate together the fact that Rick and Travis are now at large, unleashing their charm (possibly also wreaking havoc…) with a fun Rafflecopter giveaway for one ebook copy of the novel, open internationally of course.
The one condition to entering the giveaway is you either have to have or get a free DSP store account, and if you win, the ebook will magically appear in your account’s shelf.
You’ll gain entries by answering one or all of the questions on the Rafflecopter. Keep in mind there’s no wrong answer to any of them, simply choices :) These are situations that may or may not be related to the story, hehe. Sounds like fun? I hope it will be.
Here’s a little more about the novel, and you’ll find the Rafflecopter form right below that. Don’t have a Rafflecopter account? No worries, simply sign in with a valid email address and a name, I’ll use that email address to contact you if you’re the winner, so make sure it’s a good one, eh?

Secrets, Book One of The Full Nelson Series, by Jeff Erno

September 3, 2014

secretsdraft

Hi Everybody! Thanks for stopping by the Dreamspinner Press Blog. I was offered the privilege of hosting the blog today to announce the release of a brand new series, something kind of outside the box for me. For the first time ever, I’m releasing a crime detective mystery. The idea for this series has been a long-time dream of mine because I’ve always been a fan of police detective dramas, and more specifically, forensic-based murder mysteries. However, I haven’t seen a lot of these kinds of stories within the m/m sub-genre. So my series, The Full Nelson, has allowed me to marry two of my favorite themes–hot, man-on-man lovemaking and crime-solving. And who better to fulfill this fantasy of mine is there than a hunky, hyper-masculine, ego-driven police detective who’s not only openly gay but who wears it as a badge of honor? Chris Nelson is the kind of gay guy who just dares someone to make an issue of the fact that he bats for the home team.

Chris’s husband Ethan is in many ways the polar opposite of Chris. He’s a do-gooder, a middle school teacher who always looks on the bright side, and he has a way of bringing out the best side of his husband. My favorite thing about the relationship is that the couple are downright kinky. Who cares that Chris is a cop? That doesn’t stop him from engaging in a little risky public indecency when the opportunity arises. (Well, it’s more than just opportunity that is on the rise, if you know what I mean).

And I know what you’re probably thinking. If you’ve read my previous books you know I tend to write dominant masculine heroes paired up with soft, sensitive subs who don’t mind taking orders. Well, if that’s what you’re expecting with this series, you’ll sadly be disappointed. Ethan is anything but a mousy yes-man. He and Chris often vie for dominance, and sexually, they’re very versatile. Ethan also proves to be a tremendous asset to his husband in solving the mysteries. Chris relies on him for feedback, and Ethan is able to provide a voice of calm reason even at times Chris is on the verge of throwing in the towel.

Secrets, book one of the series, releases today. This first mystery features a high school military academy where a murder takes place. One of the school’s teachers, the swim coach, is found floating in the pool. His body is badly bruised and beaten, and all signs point to a grisly murder. Chris identifies a list of possible suspects and begins his investigation, but of course, things don’t go exactly as he planned. He discovers that the answers which at first seemed so obvious only raise more questions, and he finds himself following a trail of clues that gets more and more complicated. Finally, when he gets it all figured out, he’s horrified to learn that someone he loves deeply is in grave danger and he must rush to save the day.

So far, three stories in the series have been contracted, each one unique. But the common thread that runs through all the mysteries is the passionate love affair of Chris and Ethan. These books were perhaps the funnest stories I’ve ever written, and I can’t wait to share them.

If you like crime detective stories, would you please leave a comment expressing your favorite theme or trope. Is there something in particular you’d like to see included in my upcoming mysteries. I’ll draw a winner from the comments and share a copy of book one with that commenter.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you love the story.

Blood & Thunder Release Day Party: Random Fact Fun

August 4, 2014

Blood&Thunder_headerbanner

Hello all! We’re back! Thanks for dropping by the Blood & Thunder Release Day Party! Woot! I’m here celebrating the second book in my new THIRDS series: Comedy. Action. Romance. And that one weird guy! For this post I thought I’d share some random fun facts about our team Destructive Delta.

Dex: When he was fourteen years old, Tony and Cael walked in to his bedroom to find him with his boy parts in the vaccum cleaner hose.
Sloane: Used to dress up like Indiana Jones when he was little and set up his and Ash’s room like an obstacle course. Ash would roll toward him and pretend he was the giant boulder chasing Indy.
Ash: Doesn’t actually have a nut allergy. He does in fact have a shellfish allergy.
Cael: Was so small when he was a kid he got lost in a ball pit at a schoolmate’s birthday party. They had to empty it out to find him.
Calvin: When he was twelve, he thought it would be a good idea to hold onto the back of Hobbs’s bike while on his skateboard. When Hobbs took off, Calvin flew forward without his skateboard. He scraped his knee on the concrete. He still has the scar. (This in no way is a true story. Okay, it is. I was twelve!)
Hobbs: Grew up next door to Calvin in the same apartment building. When he couldn’t sleep or was scared, he’d use his walkie talkie to call Calvin who would read to Hobbs until he fell asleep.
Rosa: Had considered being a chef before going into law enforcement.
Letty: Has grenade shaped cookie cutters and gun shaped egg cookie cutters.
Tony: Dressed like Darth Vader for Dex’s seventh birthday party and gave the kids Styrofoam lightsabers so they could fight him.

Action. Comedy. Romance. And that one weird guy.

When a series of bombs go off in a Therian youth center, injuring members of THIRDS Team Destructive Delta, and causing a rift between agents Dexter J. Daley and Sloane Brodie, peace seems unattainable. Especially when a new and frightening group, the Order of Adrasteia, appears to always be a step ahead. With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order’s propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there’s a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.

Discovering the frightful truth behind the Order’s intent forces Sloane to confront secrets from a past he thought he’d left behind for good, a past that could not only destroy him and his career, but also the reputation of the organization that made him all he is today. Now more than ever, Dex and Sloane need each other, and, along with trust, the strength of their bond will mean the difference between justice and all-out war.
