Gay Romance Novel mm romance reading recommendations

So many wonderful authors and books! I’ve been flat out with edits for my upcoming release, and haven’t been reading as much as usual. However, I’ve been blessed to read some fabulous stories this month and wanted to share them with you.

Bobby Green by Amy Lane

Amy Lane is one of my favourite authors. This is the 5th book in her Johnnies series and I’ve enjoyed every single one. Angsty, complex characters, with superb writing. Click here to find out more.

Rebel by Rhys Ford

This book starts a new series, 415 Ink. I love the style of Rhys’s writing. She has the ability to transport me directly into the settings of her stories – the sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes – and this story is no different. It has a comfort/hurt theme, broken characters with troubled pasts, trying to build themselves a better life. And find love, of course. Click here for more.

The Breaking Free series by A.M. Arthur

I usually read contemporary romance but detoured into some Omegaverse stories this month. It was refreshing to read something relatively new to me and I enjoyed the world creation. These stories feature Alphas, Betas and Omegas, each with their specific role. The complexities of the fight for omega rights, bonding, the hurt/comfort theme, all made for interesting reading. Click here to check out the series. It’s also available on Kindle Unlimited.

This month my audio book is Wild Trail, also by A.M. Arthur. It’s narrated by Greg Boudreaux who does a great job of voicing the characters, Mack the sexy cowboy, and Wes the flirty actor. I’m currently half way through and I’m looking forward to more time on the treadmill to get it finished. It’s amazing how listening to a romance story can make a treadmill run seem enjoyable 😉

Happy reading,

Dirty Rings (from Rhys Ford and Greg Tremblay)

What a cool idea! Free Ring Tones!

So a funny thing happened on the way to a tweet, Greg Tremblay, the fantastic narrator of my Dirty series, texted me and said… hey, you should giveaway a custom ringtone. Or something to that effect. There was some discussion. A few emails and then well, long story short—there may have been some pixilated shots of whiskey and banter but a plan was formed. A plan so cunning I could have stuck a tail on it and called it a weasel.

Mostly, it involved Greg. And your phone. But it was still a plan!

After a furious, intense process of queries, eliminations, debating on who said what, we came up with a set of phrases from Cole, Bobby, Jae, Claudia, Scarlet and one from Maddy then Greg went to work. And returned to me with a brilliant sound bites forged by a narrative master—in the style of the characters’ voices.

So dear reader, as a thank you for everything you’ve done for Greg and me, I’d like to present the entire set of ringtones—twenty one in total—FREE, as a gift to you.

Available in Android (MP3) and iPhone (formats for Android and Apple phones, Greg has also graciously included the WAV files if that’s your thing. Download links to the zipped files are provided below.*

A great humongous thank you to all of the blogs who helped me with this guerilla gifting. This swirled up on Tuesday and Greg just MADE it happen. He is the voice of the series and I am forever grateful for his talent.

Love you all, and really, Thank You.

Rhys Ford

If you’ve not tried out Greg Tremblay’s narrations, please do so. He makes audiobooks fun and damn, he brings Cole and the others to life.

Greg Tremblay’s body of work can be found here—and yes, the Dirty series is there but so are many other lovely audio books. I highly recommend one of Greg’s audiobooks, a comfy chair, a pair of headphones and a nice hot cup of coffee… or tea… with or without whisky.
