23 Nov
omegashadowsbanner
I’m interviewing Elijah Kane today, one of the characters of gay / shifter / paranormal romance “Omega in the Shadows”. Enjoy!
Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?
I’m Elijah Kane, infamous assassin and sexy as hell wolf shifter. My role is to break in that damn alpha, Rowan Gregor, and convince him he’s my mate. Problem is he’s all ‘but I’m not gay!’ Yeah. I don’t buy that for a second. His eyes are all over me, and I can’t blame him.
What is your favorite hobby?
Does killing assholes who deserve it count? I’m an assassin. What did you think my hobby would be? Macramé?
What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during this story?
For one, Rowan doesn’t give in like I planned. He’s got a lot of fight in him. Also, there may have been an issue with some hunters and one of my well laid plans going to shit, but I’m not about to take all the blame for that one. Also, the ex-from-hell shows up. I don’t want to go there. . . .
 
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
For my brother. I wish I protected him when we were kids. Things wouldn’t have turned out like this if I had.
Tell us a secret about you.
I don’t like beer. Rowan does, so I don’t say anything about it.

Book Excerpt The River Leith

5 Jul

riverleithbanner

Excerpt time today. I’m hosting a snippet from gay romance “The River Leith”. Enjoy the excerpt.

Book Excerpt

Memory, as it turned out, was both everything and nothing. It had no substance, no form, no weight, and no color. It was described, in technical terms, as deposits of proteins within cells of the brain. However, these were words that at their heart were as mysterious and ultimately magical as any other metaphor used in an attempt to understand the concept: memory as a storehouse or set of books—a way to keep track of life’s checks and balances; or memory as meaning—a mode of life, and a way of being.

Leith knew now that all these metaphors and all these words boiled down to one thing: memory is the sum of us, the total, and if it is divided, then we are lost.

There were other people in the occupational therapy ward, and Leith studied them with a mixture of horror and envy. There was the droopy, sagging stroke victim Jan Troxell, who could tell anyone the weather report from that morning, but couldn’t remember anything else—not her daughter’s name, not her age, and not her favorite color.

There was David Mueller, for whom every day began as April 12, 2006, until he found out again, and again, and again that he had suffered a brain injury and couldn’t make any more memories.

In some ways these people repulsed Leith, leaving him breathless with terror and disgust at how close he’d come to joining their ranks. People who were shells of the beings they were before, empty and unable to give anything back to the world except for the memory that once they were more, and that they never would be again.

But in other equally scary ways, Leith watched these people with envy. They were free, utterly rudderless in a thrashing ocean, but still free. Their options had been removed from them, and they were at the mercy of the elements and the grace of people’s kindness. But they weren’t tied down to memories of who they were, of what and who they’d loved, the things they’d once dreamed, and the things they’d valued.

Leith was not free. He knew who he was, give or take the last three years of his life. It had been almost two weeks since he’d come out of the coma. The illegal blow to the back of his head during the New York Amateur Boxing Championship match had cost his opponent his career, but it had cost Leith a hell of a lot more than that.

All in all he had a lot more than the other amnesiacs he saw every day in the rehab hospital. His intelligence hadn’t been compromised, and while some of his motor skills were rough, the doctors told him there was no reason to believe he wouldn’t be able to live a completely normal life again. Of course they strongly advised against boxing. Multiple head injuries could be fatal. At least he’d come out of the last one with his life, his brains, and only a few missing years.

 His last memory was learning that he would soon be released from prison. In his sparse, clean cell, he’d sat on a bunk and composed a letter to Arthur asking if it would be all right to start over in Brooklyn instead of going home to New Jersey and their father.

Leith had no memory of finishing that letter. No memory of a bus trip from the jail in Florida to Arthur’s apartment in Manhattan. No memory of meeting a girl named Naomi on the ski slopes of Vermont. No memory of his father’s death and no memory of mourning by his dad’s grave. Leith only knew of these things because he’d been told. And he still didn’t know how to believe them.

The River Leith

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000030_00050]Title: The River Leith

Author: Leta Blake

Genre: Gay Romance

Memory is everything.

After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.

For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach’s choices may come back to haunt him.

Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.

Book Excerpt

Nathan Grier was exhausted, his body drained entirely of energy from his days spent recovering from an unfortunate shotgun blast to the chest. Sleep was a welcome friend as of late—well, some of the time. A part of Nathan feared the drooping of his eyes and what might be waiting for him in the darkness. But he needed rest. Craved it. The comfort and warmth of the bed beneath him. The quiet of a room that wasn’t in the hospital. The gentle touch of Sasha’s fingers trailing up his thigh.

Nathan sighed. His thoughts were vague, hazy. He was definitely in a bed, in a quiet room, but he wasn’t surrounded by the comfort of covers; he was lying naked on top of them, displayed for Sasha to see. Nathan knew the hand caressing up his side belonged to Sasha Kelly—of course it did. He knew the soft skin of the incubus too well after their night together to imagine it was anyone else.

It had been a week since their run-in with Gabriel, the sealgaire who had murdered Nathan’s parents—and who had turned out, in the end, to be family. Nathan hadn’t told his brother, Jim, about Gabriel being their uncle, and he hoped he never had to.
