Hot Summer Read!

Available HERE
By V.S. Morgan 

Minnesota is really freaking cold in the winter. Shocked? Surprised? I thought not. That’s why I chose a tropical location with two hot, steamy men when I penned The Gift a few Januaries ago. Some may think Minnesota is cold year round, but I’m happy to report we do usually have a few good months a year. 
I love summer reads, stories that are hot without a ton of angst and end on a happy note. Stories I read curled up on my cushy swing in my backyard or when I’m relaxing at the lake. I’ve been really enjoying the latest Decadent releases as well as finding some back list story gems. The last book I read was Operation Owl by Tara Quan. Awesome read!
How about you? What are you reading this summer?

In honor of the great weather I swore I would enjoy every minute of after a particularly grueling winter, I’m offering a special giveaway! In addition to receiving an electronic copy of my book The Gift, the lucky person selected will also receive a purple beach tote bag perfect for carrying your e-reader to your favorite summer locations!

The Gift:

At twenty-two, rancher Wyatt Malone sacrificed almost everything, including the Dom he served and loved, to raise his younger brothers. Now, with the ranch running well, his grown up siblings surprise him with a trip to a Caribbean paradise and a date from Madame Evangeline's 1Night Stand. Taking his courage in hand, he fills out an application that bares his soul for a single night of surrender to a nearly forgotten passion.
Rafael is a Dom without a sub. His desires exceed the available men in the dungeon he frequents and memories of rejected love keep him aloof. Can the submission of a Montana cowboy free him or will the date be nothing more than another meaningless scene? 

Rafael blotted his mouth with his napkin and placed it on the table. Wyatt set his fork down and waited. The old familiar energy pulsed between them. Heat zipped through his groin, and he shifted in his seat as his erection pressed against his jeans.
“Wyatt, you asked Madame Eve for a Dominant for one night.” Rafael slid a keycard on the table between them. “If you accept my invitation to play, you will take this card and be in my suite, ready, in fifteen minutes.”
Without hesitation, he reached over and grasped it. When his wrist was grabbed, tugging him forward, Wyatt braced his free hand on the table and accepted Rafael’s lips. At first they brushed, a tease, and then the kiss became a sensual play of tongues. His heart pounded at the taste of curry and tequila. He twirled his tongue around the other man’s and groaned. Rafael’s lips trailed across his jaw and down his neck, stubble scraping across sensitive skin, creating a rasp of pleasure that flowed all the way down his spine.
The Dom followed it with a nip on the bottom lip and then pulled back, twisting Wyatt’s wrist slightly to glance at his watch. Rafael released him and leaned back with a wicked grin. Wyatt’s heart raced.
“You now have thirteen minutes.”

  1. would love to read this story

    1. Hi Jodi! Thanks for stopping by. I'll keep the comments open until midnight PST and pick from there.

  2. Don't enter me because I've read this story and it is so good! I was wondering if Wyatts brothers get books.

    1. Hi Suz! I remember you! Thank you for the kind words. I happen to be working on the second oldest brother's (Sam) story and plan to submit it for consideration in a month or so. It's a foodie romance and his love interest is Rafael's cousin, Gabriela. My goal is to write a book for each brother. Also I just contracted a m/m paranormal called Hunter's Mark for the Beyond Fairytales line, which will be coming out later this year.

    2. Awesome! Can't wait to read more of this family! The Beyond Fairytales line looks interesting but I haven't read any of them yet but I do have a couple on my wishlist. I'll keep my eye out for them.

  3. Would love this!
