Dangerous Beauty Release and Giveaway

Guess what? My publisher pulled a fast one and released Dangerous Beauty a week early! I had meant to announce next week's giveaway today anyway... so I might as well jump into it right now.

Dangerous Beauty is a M/M sequel to Captive Heart, my bestselling M/F romance in the Pride of Uttor series. The fantasy romance series follows the Kordeun royal family into captivity after they lose a disastrous war... a war they started. Each book in the series tells the story of one of the Kordeun or Leonnte siblings as she or he discovers love, fate, and family secrets.

To celebrate the book's release, I'll be contributing several unique guest posts to other blogs about Uttor, fanart, religion, signs you might have a psychotic father, and other subjects related to the writing of this book.

And of course I will be giving away copies of the ebook, starting here on my own blog. If you would like a chance to win a free copy, all you have to do is comment and post your email address (so I can contact you and send the book) at the end of this post. I will be giving away two copies of the book, with the winners to be drawn and announced on Monday morning, January 28th.

Once the Kordeun family ruled Sebboy…now they are imperial captives of the Uttoran Emperor. Devout and studious, Endre Kordeun loves his family and will do anything to free them, even if that means pretending he’s gay so he can pass messages to his father’s shady allies. With his golden good looks and a beautiful male courtesan posing as his lover, Endre finds Uttor’s decadent society more than willing to believe his ruse.

But when a passionate kiss from a dark, gorgeous man unlocks feelings Endre had been hiding even from himself, lies start to unravel. Arshad, prince of Tabar, is Endre’s match in every way…including a shared love for science and celestial mechanics. Going forward with his charade will be dangerous, and not only because he might be discovered. In that event, even his own father would kill him. How much is Endre willing to risk for love?

And of course, there's a juicy EXCERPT from the first chapter (want the full first chapter? Read THIS first on Facebook and just jump right into mine). The excerpt has now joined the samples from my other books on the sidebar, over there.   ---->

Dangerous Beauty can be purchased at Resplendence Publishing and AllRomanceEbooks, and will be released soon on Amazon.

  1. The benefit of being an insomniac~you get to make the first comment! I'd rather get the sleep!

    CONGRATS on the release! I can't wait to read this one again. I loved it the first time around...oh I love all your books :) I wish you lots of luck with it. I really like the cover for this b/c you can feel what it is like for Endre and his family to be in a palace inside a jail. I love how he's overlooking the city seeing people living and he is caught in this place.
    Hope the vaca was a blast,

  4. Having your publisher pull a stunt like this must be frustrating for the best laid plans of promo! But it's a boon to the readers who get to have it earlier.

    Congrats, sounds like a wonderful book, can't wait to read it.

    I'll pass on the free book - I'll buy it instead. But sounds like like a winner. Good luck. And you'd better do what Nephylim asks or she'll bite you and I can tell you from experience, that hurts :P

    1. Fear not, Cyn (and anyone else who's wondering), the book is completely standalone. Reading the first one might provide a little extra depth, but you don't need to have read it for this one to make sense.

    1. The book stands on its own. Completely. 100% I made sure it would, because some readers of m/m would balk at reading a m/f and I respect that. So it's a whole story. :)

  19. Sounds intriguing, I really enjoy fantasy based works I feel they add more to the romance. I'm glad I stayed up enough to check the blog. Congrats on the week advance, it's a sign for many great things to come.
