18 and Over Giveaway Hop

Good morning, all, and welcome to the 18 and Over Book Blogger Giveaway Hop, hosted by Laurie (from Bitten by Paranormal Romance) and Gabrielle Bisset (paranormal romance author).

There are nearly 100 bloggers participating, so please be sure to check out the complete list, then make the rounds to see what you could win. Each blog will have a book, ebook, or gift card to offer, providing the winners with something fun, sexy, and suitable to the 18 and over crowd.

It's been a while since we've participated in something like this here at Bending the Bookshelf, so I've decided to sweeten the pot with a two-part giveaway.

For starters, we have an ebook copy of Afflicted by Brandon Shire (courtesy of the author).

A high priced male escort and a blind gay man meet by chance. What ensues is a hot, steamy romance by two men looking for something more than a one night stand. But can they reach beyond their own insecurities to grasp what they really desire?

Hunter Stephens is gay, tall, dark haired, and he’s hot. Very hot. But he doesn’t rely on the visual cues when appraising a man because he’s also blind. He listens to the timbre of their voice, trembles at the touch of their skin, and luxuriates in the deep richness of the aroma of man. He’s hard of the hand because he’s a black belt and takes no shit, but soft of the heart because he’s lonely and has been for a while.

Until he meets Dillon.

Dillon Chambers is straight man candy. He’s a high priced male escort that works with an exclusive agency who handles only the wealthiest of clients. But it wasn’t always like that for him. At sixteen he was thrown out of the house for being gay and struggled to survive, turning tricks on the street and finding food and a place to sleep wherever he could. He met two people that changed his life, but he has never met anyone who could change his heart.

Until he bumped into Hunter.

And now they are both Afflicted.

But that's not all! We also have a winner's choice of any anthology from Storm Moon Press (courtesy of the publisher).

♥ All Wrapped Up - Tentacles are a taboo subject for most, something most people look at from between their fingers as they hide. But for a growing number of people, it's a subject that is fascinating and sexy!

♥ Daughters of Artemis - Werewolf lore has long been dominated by tales of the strong alpha male, but what of the strong alpha females?

♥ Fraternal Devotion - When you pit knowledge against emotions, there's the no-man's land in between those two opposing forces where taboos lie.


 Like It or Not - Be it forced seduction/dubious consent, non-violent intimidation, or pre-negotiated fantasy, there is something wickedly taboo about non-consensual sex, where consent is muddled.

♥ Love & Agony - Between love and agony, there is a world of pleasure and pain, want and need.

♥ Weight of a Gun - Everyone knows that guns are dangerous; they have long been a subject surrounded by controversy. Combine them with sex and you have a subject that is virtually taboo, but smoking hot.

♥ Wild Passions - Other worlds, other planes of existence, other places where humans are not the only type of creature to walk and talk. Human-like animals populate the pages of Wild Passions!



Enter below for your chance at a copy of Afflicted, along with your choice of any 1 Storm Moon Press anthology.
