NEW RELEASE: Retrograde by RJ Scott


Retrograde is the first book in the new series – Flight HA1710 – from Love Lane books. Book #1 is by RJ Scott. See below for an excerpt and a giveaway.
Retrograde Final


Co-Pilot Lachlan Donaghue wakes up in hospital, a survivor of the crash of Flight HA1710, with memory loss and the suspicion that he could be at fault for the tragic accident. When everything becomes too much he goes home to hide, back to the small Scottish town he grew up in and to his family home.

Rory Kendrick watches the news, sees every hour of the disaster unfold but never thinks that Lachlan was in the middle of it all. Or that his friend will be forced to come back home to hide and to heal. What Lachlan needs is a friend, not a lover, but sometimes the lines are just too blurred to make any sense.



It was a summer night, but Lachlan was soaked to the bone. He could have the start of hypothermia, or worse, he could be injured and Rory wouldn’t know where to even start looking past the small cuts and bruises on Lachlan’s body. Part of him wished he had demanded to talk to the doctor himself, but he’d been so eager to get Lachlan away from it all.

“Stay,” Lachlan murmured. His voice was so low that at first Rory hadn’t heard a thing. Then Lachlan repeated “Stay.”

What happened in the plane? Why can’t Lachlan remember any of it?

So many questions: Had Lachlan been told that any of the passengers behaved inappropriately? Had anyone created a scene, whether it was passengers or crew? Were there enough cabin crew to check if something had been happening on the plane? Was Lachlan happy with security at the airport? Did the pilots ever feel threatened or unsafe?

But what was the point if Lachlan had no memories at all? And when he sat next to Lachlan, and Lachlan simply curled into him, Rory concluded that questions would have to wait.

As Lachlan lay on him, Rory skimmed Google on his phone, looking up hypothermia, checking the news. There was no sign of shivering now from Lachlan, and there was nothing in the news about a missing pilot. Both were good things. He laid his phone on the table and one-handedly poured a small amount of whiskey into a glass. Without words he encouraged Lachlan to sip at it. Whether that was a good thing or not, he didn’t know, and he wished he’d googled it, but generations of Kendrick mothers swore by the restorative heat of Irish whiskey, and who was he to argue with Irish mothers?

EXCERPT, GIVEAWAY & DISCOUNT CODE: The Love of Wicked Me by Brandon Shire

Wicked Men Blitz Banner

First, let me say thanks for hosting the Wicked Men blog tour. The creation of this lengthy novel was quite an adventure. Throughout the course of writing each episode, readers were offered the opportunity to give their input and suggestions on how they thought the story should move along. And I threw in a few twists and surprises along the way, just to keep them on their toes. The Wicked Men blitz features seven unique excerpts, so don’t miss any. And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!


Sid Rivers and Jack Brown are two sides of the same coin. One is a lawyer with his own firm and dreams of money and power; the other is a criminal with a lengthy record and a quest for vengeance. When they meet, sparks fly. But was their meeting an accident? Or was it planned by the billionaires who want to control their destiny?

The Love of Wicked Men is an erotic journey into the underbelly of the legal profession, the corporate culture of profit-at-any-cost, and the secret world of industrial espionage.

Wicked Men Box Set Cover


Sid Rivers sat in his law office in Huntsville, Alabama listening to his partner, Larry Dunn, bitch about the criminal trial they’d just come in from. Larry was whining like it was a major case that would affect the profits of their firm, and he was starting to piss Sid off. Rivers & Dunn had nothing to do with criminal law. There’s wasn’t enough money in it for Sid to be happy, and certainly not enough aptitude required to keep him interested.

“He stabbed you.” Larry’s volume was low, but punctuated with anger in Sid’s typically quiet office.

Sid lifted his elbow slightly, tilted his well-muscled arm away from his body and looked down at his bicep. There was a small scar just below the cuff of his tailored short sleeve shirt. It was less than an inch and would easily escape notice if you didn’t know it was there. Certainly no one would see it with his suit coat on.

Sid shook his head, disagreeing. “He just nicked me. He could’ve stabbed me if he really wanted to. It was an accident. He turned with the knife in his hand. He was as surprised as I was.”

“Accident? He was robbing the goddamn store.”

“And he looked so hot doing it,” Sid murmured with a smile. He leaned back in his chair; his hands interlocked behind his head, and blew out a breath full of unadulterated lust, his eyes immediately distant.

Sid didn’t know what happened, not really. He’d stopped to buy a pack of mints and when his eyes connected with Jack Brown, he felt an electric jolt of lust he hadn’t grappled with since college. By the look in Jack’s eyes, Sid thought he’d felt it too. Neither of them had even noticed the small cut on Sid’s arm until his shirt tinged red.

“You should’ve seen how his arms bulged while he was waving that knife around…”

Larry threw his hands up. “It’s not just your fucking funeral, you know? We’re not in college anymore. You’re not the anti-jock all the flaming little queer boys are lusting after. That was twenty years ago.”

Sid looked at his law partner for the first time. “What’s your problem?”

“You just committed perjury. That’s my fucking problem,” Larry barked across Sid’s desk. “You could be disbarred if anyone ever found out. We could lose everything.”

“Perjury?” Sid rose from his chair and went to the private bar, pouring a glass of cognac. He swirled it in the glass for a moment, watching the liquid move. This was the Assistant DA’s fault, not his. “I didn’t pick him out in a lineup. I never identified him except in a verbal description.” Sid countered. “Patty should’ve asked me to identify him before she put me on the stand. That’s her fault. She didn’t do her follow-up. I can’t help it if she hasn’t learned how to do her job after ten years as ADA.”

“You lied because you want to fuck him.”

About the Author

Great stories should not depend on gender or sexual preference of a character, but instead upon the strength of the characters and the honesty and urgency of the story.

Brandon Shire proves he understands the complexity of writing LGBT fiction from two very different viewpoints – serious and smexy. His serious fiction is written for those who enjoy a book, which explores life’s darker elements in a more literary form, while the smexy fiction is for those who enjoy a graphically erotic romance.

Regardless of the differentiation above, Brandon writes for people who enjoy being challenged, and for those who strive to understand situations they don’t typically encounter. He pens raw, emotional stories about characters, which readers will either love or love to hate.

Life and love are pretty damned special, but neither is always perfect. Life can be painful, and real love hard to find. Brandon’s fiction is an exploration of the (sometimes) arduous search for the happiness we all desire.
