Welcome to the GRL Blog Tour Supporting Author Simone Anderson! Today Simone joins us to talk about her brand new release, Changing Tides as well as letting us get to know her better. And don’t forget to look for the new installment of Team Condit’s SUDDENLY mini-story.

Welcome Simone:

It’s spring, so there should be robins and flowers and lots of green. Right? Yeah, not so much if you live in Michigan. I’m thinking someone hit the wrong button and fast forwarded through spring, summer, and fall, and brought us back to winter. There is snow on the ground. Again. Just when it had finally disappeared. Ugh.

Currently, I’m working on the second Smuggler’s Cove Book, which is not Capturing Desire like I had always thought and planned, but Heart of Stone. Hopefully, it’ll be finished and available soon. However, in the meantime, I had a brand new story release yesterday, April 23rd, from Resplendence Publishing (http://www.resplendencepublishing.com).

Changing Tides is part of the New Reality dystopian stories. It was fun to write, and just a little weird wondering how sideways things could get.

 Brett DeMarco is a First Lieutenant in Aelland’s Security Forces and hopes to become the head of intelligence someday. After the death of his fiancée, Brett threw himself into his work, dodging his father’s attempts to get him to marry the right woman, never doubting the career path he’d chosen. (more…)

BLURB: Kenneth Carver had everything growing up except warmth and acceptance. When protecting his family’s name became more than he could bear, he came out as gay, sold his company, and bought a horse ranch.

Andrew Wofford’s last undercover assignment nearly cost him his sanity. Now he has another chance of catching the drug runner who killed one of his informants and then escaped, but gruesome flashbacks threaten his ability to function in the field.

Andy’s latest investigation sends him to Ken’s ranch where he poses as a ranch hand. Ken is a prime suspect, but Andy refuses to believe Ken is guilty, in part because Andy is falling for him. Ken knows Andy isn’t who he seems, but he can’t bring himself to push the man away. When Ken hears rumors that someone is using his land to move drugs out of the city, he worries that it’s Andy. Neither man can trust the other even though that’s exactly what their hearts tell them to do.

 photo TheBadWolf.jpgBLURB: The journey to become a better man isn’t easy, especially when there’s something worth fighting for. Evan has been alone since Kaine’s death, moving from place to place, and for the most part, keeping to himself. He never expected to cross paths with Mason and Niall again. When he gets caught up in something bigger than himself, he is left injured, scared, and with nowhere else to turn. Michael is like no wolf Evan has ever met before. Born a werewolf, Michael is stronger and faster, but has yet to truly tap into his abilities. Taken in by Mason and Niall, Michael struggles to come to terms with the horrific events in his past and the loss of his family. In Evan, Michael finds an unexpected focus. And despite warnings of Evan’s own dark past, Michael finds Evan to be someone worth fighting for, and someone who can help him understand exactly what he is capable of.

REVIEW:

I am a HUGE fan of shifters. The very first books I ever read for pleasure were about shifters and vampires. So when I got the opportunity to review book two of the lone wolf trilogy I was excited. I was expecting an easy read with the traditional elements of shifter stories I have read in the past. However, what I read was something completely different and I mean that in the most positive way possible.

In most shifter tales, the werewolves keep hold of all their human morals and values while in wolf form. They maintain control at all times. In The Bad Wolf, the wolves run the show and once the men shift, the wolf’s nature takes control. They are driven to be hunters and kill their prey just as real wolves in the wild. It is only by sheer discipline that the men are able to maintain some shred of humanity. At times, the human fails to control the wolf and the results are violent and gruesome. The author does not shy away for the gory details. (more…)

Sometimes Magic is as subtle as the smile that the wind paints across your lips when it tousles your hair, and sometimes it’s about as subtle as a two-by-four swung at the back of your head.

 photo SoloFlight.jpgBLURB: Hawk pulled the trigger too soon. He invited his boyfriend, Jarrod, to live with him, and the man balked. When Hawk decides to show him there are no hurt feelings with a gift basket from Sundae’s, what could go wrong?

Ask and you shall receive. Hawk, the ever-doting boyfriend, delivers the basket in person only to meet Jarrod’s twink-on-the-side. Hawk finds himself with a broken heart, an unwanted gift basket, and an entire weekend to either mope or move on.

With the help of a sexy book and the wise words of a novelty magnet found in the basket, Hawk begins the journey of healing his heart and learning his lesson. But will Hawk recognize new love when the time comes, or get stuck on his solo flight of self-discovery?

 photo PizzyGirlNewSignature.jpg

REVIEW: In Solo Flight, Pia Veleno presents a story about the journey of self-love rather than instant sexual gratification. Hawk spends the majority of the book figuring out how to love himself and figuring out what he truly wants out of a relationship. Instead of continuing on as he has in the past and settling for whoever is available, Hawk takes a break from dating to find himself. It is in finding himself that he learns what he needs in a relationship to be truly happy. He learns how to put his real self forward in a relationship so when he finally agrees to a relationship with Joe, the relationship is based on love and friendship rather than simple sexual attraction.

 photo Solo.jpg BLURB: Sam “Solo” Braun lives by one truth, the Grave Diggers Motorcycle Club above all. The creed has served him well, giving him the only real family he’s ever known.He would die for his brothers and them for him, but they don’t know he prefers men over women. Coming out to a group of men who fear no one isn’t high on Solo’s priority list, especially because he’s never indulged in more than one night stands.

Everything changes after one night with Eric James. For the first time, Solo can’t stop thinking about a single night he’d spent with a man. When fate intervenes, Solo comes face to face with his blue-eyed obsession only to find out Eric is a cop. Solo hates cops, and so do his brothers in the club. However, Solo decides to gamble everything and spend more time with Eric under the guise of getting information.

Falling in love with a cop is a very dangerous proposition for a man in Solo’s position, so why can’t he walk away?

REVIEW:
I was a little concerned when I asked to review this book, I don’t usually read books that have a lot of violence in them. I prefer love stories with happy endings, a little angsts and hot man sex. But I asked to read this book and review it so I could stretch my reading wings and when I commit to something. I do it!
I was very happy, this was a love story about two men, Sam “Solo” Braun and Eric “Blue” James. Throughout the book both Solo and Eric point out how different they are in every aspect of their lives but we come to learn how much they are alike . (more…)

 photo AwfullyGlad.jpgBLURB: WWI hero Sam Hines is used to wearing a face that isn’t his own. When he’s not in the trenches, he’s the most popular female impersonator on the front, but a mysterious note from an anonymous admirer leaves him worried. Everyone realizes—eventually—that Sam’s not a woman, but has somebody also worked out that he also prefers his lovers to be male?

When Sam meets—and falls for—fellow officer Johnny Browne after the war, he wonders whether he could be the man who wrote the note. If so, is he the answer to Sam’s dreams or just another predatory blackmailer, ready to profit from a love that dare not speak its name?

JOSIE’S OPINION: To the war weary audience Sam Hines is Miss Madeline, the darling of The Macaronis concert party. Her renditions of Roses of Picardy and Home Fires Burning has turned her into a star at-traction, feted and adored by all who watch her perform. Meeting soldiers backstage after the show Sam never hides the fact he’s a woman impersonator, and after one of these groups Sam finds a note left in his dressing room, “I’m awfully glad you’re not a girl. J.”

A year later, the war a fading memory, Sam is back in his office at a London Stockbrokers. Sam has never revealed to anyone his wartime role as Miss Madeline, passing off a picture of him as her as that of a deceased cousin. Sam is not ashamed of his wartime role but he’s not open about it either, displaying the military cross he won on his office desk to deflect any questions about exactly what he did in the war. Then Sam acquires a new client, J Browne. Sam has a sinking feeling he recognizes the name but can’t place him precisely, could he be someone he met in the war? Someone who can link him to Miss Madeline? (more…)
