What happens when a player gets played?

Actor Dylan Frasier is known as one of the biggest playboys in Hollywood, infamous for seducing men and women alike. He’s also half in love with his two best friends. Unfortunately, Jason and Ben are madly in love with each other, leaving Dylan the odd man out.

When Ben suggests an extended Christmas vacation at a resort modeled after his favorite 80s TV show, Dylan reluctantly agrees. Sure, his heart breaks a bit every time he sees them together, but it’s a vacation in the Bahamas. How bad can it be?

At first, the resort seems like any other. Dylan plans to work on his tan, get laid, and hunt for Hollywood’s most in-demand director – not necessarily in that order. Then he meets Connor, a tennis instructor still hurting from a bad breakup. Connor knows Dylan’s reputation and refuses to be seduced.

Dylan sees Connor as just another conquest, but this tropical island isn’t as mundane as it appears. It has its own kind of magic, and it’s about to make things interesting.

Excerpt

They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. It must be true. God knows it could only be insanity that made me agree to this vacation. Why else would I spend the next thirty-one days with Jason and Ben knowing it’ll result in nothing but heartache? I love them both so much it hurts. Watching them together is like feeling my heart slowly shatter over and over again, and yet I can’t stand to stay away from them either.

So here I am, on an airplane with them two days after Thanksgiving, bound for a tropical resort, Christmas be damned. We’d debated flying first class, but we were already spending a fair amount on this month-long vacation, so we settled for business class instead. Still not enough leg room for my six-foot-one body, but the drinks are free, so I’m not complaining.

“I’m so excited,” Ben says. “Can you believe we’re actually going to Fantasy Island?” He’s sitting between Jason and I on the airplane, having volunteered for the middle seat. Even now, almost two years after his miraculous appearance in Jason’s life, Ben comes across all innocence and bright-eyed enthusiasm. He’d sent off for a paper brochure from the resort because he said reading it on his phone was “dumb.” Watching him flip through it, I wonder if he’ll ever become as jaded as the rest of us.

I hope not.

Jason Walker is a child star turned teen heartthrob turned reluctant B-movie regular who’s sick of his failing career. So he gives up Hollywood for northern Idaho, far away from the press, the drama of LA, and the best friend he’s secretly been in love with for years.

There’s only one problem with his new life: a strange young man only he can see is haunting his guesthouse. Except Benjamin Ward isn’t a ghost. He’s a man caught out of time, trapped since the Civil War in a magical prison where he can only watch the lives of those around him. He’s also sweet, funny, and cute as hell, with an affinity for cheesy ’80s TV shows. And he’s thrilled to finally have someone to talk to.

But Jason quickly discovers that spending all his time with a man nobody else can see or hear isn’t without its problems—especially when the tabloids find him again and make him front-page news. The local sheriff thinks he’s on drugs, and his best friend thinks he’s crazy.

But Jason knows he hasn’t lost his mind. Too bad he can’t say the same thing about his heart.

Panto Prince Cover

When Teddy agrees to pretend to be his famous sister and take her role in a Christmas panto, he thinks his largest problem is going to be fitting into the costume tights without making it very clear to the audience it’s a man playing the part.

When flowers and letters start arriving at his dressing room from a secret admirer, he knows they’re actually meant for his sister, but he can’t help dreaming they’re for him. The whole thing has him so distracted that he crashes into the same man waiting outside the stage door not once, but twice.

Each time he runs into Dr. Basil Goodall, Teddy is charmed by the handsome, witty man. He wishes the secret admirer could be someone like him, even though he knows that’s impossible.

With the final curtain about to fall, Teddy faces losing both his time with Basil and his dream of a secret admirer. But maybe with a little Christmas magic, this fairy tale can still find its happily ever after.

The Pantomime Prince is a 8,500 word standalone short story set in Victorian London.

So very happy to be back with Charlie’s shifters

59008320._SY475_Pack of Lies by Charlie Adhara

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I hadn’t realised how much I missed being in Charlie Adhara’s world until I heard she was writing a spin-off from her Big Bad Wolf series.

Eli Smith is the star of this series, the cocky but incredibly vulnerable shifter who’s also Oliver’s ex, who we last saw helping him and Coop in Cry Wolf.

He’s ‘happily’ managing the retreat for runaway rebel wolves that Coop and Park have set up on the old Neilson lands from one of their earlier cases – even though he has no visitors yet – when he crosses paths with faded Hollywood star Julien Doran.

Both men have secrets to hide, but there’s also a kindred connection which sparks between them as they get embroiled in the mystery surrounding Blue Tail Resort tucked away in a quiet corner of the Appalachian Mountains.

I can’t tell you how much I loved this plot without giving it away, so I’ll just say that these two have as rocky a start as Coop and Park did but with all the added complications of Julien knowing nothing about wolves.

The pacing is superb, starting off with a hint of mystery and a creepy feeling that something isn’t right, before it picks up and heads off into heart pounding adrenaline-packed action.

It’s also got the same subversive humour, as Eli’s smart mouth gets him both in and out of trouble when things start kicking off.

Now, unlike the majority of the other books in this universe, I did actually guess who was the baddie but I didn’t have a clue for the ‘why’ and I suspect that will be part of the series long ARC.

This isn’t out until September but I’m already having withdrawal symptoms and desperately needing to know when book two will arrive!
