Come out of the cold, into the warm …

Dean Chapman has always had a thing for April Reid, ‘the girl next door’, the woman he’s never had. What he doesn’t know is that while he made puppy dog eyes at her, her younger brother Jay spent time looking at him the same way.

Now, years later, he considers the two Reid siblings as close friends, nothing more. Little does he know Jay is still in love with him, always has been, always will be, but he’s about to find out. When he does, it not only throws his sexuality into question, it shines an ugly light in his direction.

Reacting as he often does, on impulse, he’s about to make an understandable but life-altering mistake … and then he makes another one. Dean has to take a long look at himself and he isn’t sure he likes what he sees. He can’t remember being this arrogant, not to mention a control freak, and that’s only a few of the nicer things April Reid has taken to calling him in defence of her brother. Can he change? Does he want to? Does he even need to, or is it really just a question of making the right choice?

It’s winter and snow is falling, but he doesn’t yet know which of them might yet be left out in the cold. If Dean isn’t careful, he might lose the one person who can take him just as he is, ego included.

Sword and Silk: Book One

In eighteenth century Japan, during the golden age of samurai and of the Kabuki theater, young actors known as “flying fish” traveled the countryside, performing for audiences by day and giving their bodies to their samurai patrons at night.

Genji Sakura is one such flying fish, yet he dreams of finding the man he can give his heart to and leave the loneliness of his itinerant life behind. Though he loves theater, he doesn’t love every part of his profession, especially some of the patrons. So when a handsome ronin comes upon him stealing some solitude for a bath in a hot spring and their encounter turns passionate, Genji’s surprised and delighted.

Daisuke Minamoto’s past fills his life with a bitterness that grips his soul and makes him dangerous. Yet passion takes him when he spies on a graceful young man bathing naked in a hot spring. He has always loved women, but he can’t deny the call of his heart.

After an afternoon of sexual bliss, his heart and soul are tormented and torn. Keeping this miraculous lover will require giving up the one thing that has kept him alive for years: his hatred for the lord who murdered his wife. If he loves another, how will he go on and who will he become?

A Timeless Dreams title: While reaction to same-sex relationships throughout time and across cultures has not always been positive, these stories celebrate M/M love in a manner that may address, minimize, or ignore historical stigma.

Review:

Flying Fish by Sedonia Guillone is the first book in the Swords and Silk series. Ms. Guillone has a real knack for writing characters that live and breathe off of the written page. I was quickly captivated by these two heroes and loved the story they had to tell.

I admit, I did not read this series in book order. I read Blind Love first and loved it and immediately requested this book because I enjoyed the second book so much. Both Flying Fish and Blind Love are very well written. They could easily be stand-alone reads, but I highly recommend reading both of these books because I know you will love these characters as much as I do.

Flying Fish is a story about the healing strength of love. Both of these heroes are broken in their own way. Daisuke has been mourning his wife’s murder for five years and has wandered the country, almost lost, but still determined to avenge the death of his wife. When he comes across Genji, Daisuke mistakes the beautiful man as a woman. Soon, he realizes his error and is surprised by the immediate emotional and physical attraction he feels for Genji.

Genji has had to do what he can to survive. As an actor, he excels on the stage. He’s able to fool most people playing female parts, but after the show, he must sell his body to live. When he meets Daisuke, Genji feels the strength of an emotional connection like he’s never felt before. But, their love is a forbidden one and each man must face his own fears and hurts if they are to share a destiny together.

I loved this story. I thought the bond between Daisuke and Genji was a beautiful one to watch unfold. Their feelings for one another are intense and immediate and I enjoyed watching both men grow into better men while their relationship becomes a strong one.

I also enjoy the way Ms. Guillone can easily sweep readers into a historical world. It’s easy to get wrapped up into the characters and a culture that I don’t know enough about.

If you love historical romances, Flying Fish and the Swords and Silk series is not to be missed. I am anxious to read more about these characters and can’t wait to see what Ms. Guillone has in store for us next.

The Swords and Silk series in book order are:

Flying Fish
Blind Love

Highly Recommended!

Gabbi Reviews: All the Way to Shore by CJane Elliott


Title: All the Way to Shore
Author: CJane Elliott
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Pages: 181
Characters: Jonathan Vallen, Marco Pellegrini
POV: 3rd
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kisses: 4.5


Blurb:

Jonathan Vallen has never felt good enough. A gentle musician who loves to garden, he’s woefully unsuited to running Vallen Industries, the family business. When his father hires a hotshot executive, Marco Pellegrini, to save the company, Jonathan moves away and leaves his humiliation behind. A year later and forty pounds lighter, Jonathan runs into Marco on an LGBT cruise. Marco doesn’t recognize him, the sparks fly, and Jonathan pretends to be someone else for the week—Jonah Rutledge—someone good enough to be loved.

Marco Pellegrini has always been driven. He rose from poverty to the pinnacle of business success, and he’ll do anything to protect his reputation—including hiding his bisexuality. Having saved Vallen Industries, he’s weary of the rat race and ready for a more meaningful life. When Marco meets his soul mate for that new life—Jonah Rutledge—on an LGBT cruise, he prepares to stop hiding and start living.

Back on land, the romance crashes when Marco discovers his perfect man is not only a lie but the son of his boss, Frederick Vallen. Jonathan resolves to win Marco back, but Frederick takes vengeful action. Jonathan and Marco must battle their own fears as well as Frederick’s challenge to get to the future that awaits them on the horizon.

Review:

All the Way to Shore is the second book I’ve read by CJane Elliott and I really enjoyed it. Ms. Elliott has wrote a book with two characters that I ended up really liking and enjoyed the story they had to tell.

Sparks do not fly when Marco and Jonathan first meet. Marco has been hired to save Jonathan’s father’s company, and though Jonathan has tried to be as involved with the family business, he has no heart for it. Though Jonathan thinks Marco is handsome, his cold exterior and the way he seems to look right through Jonathan instead of noticing him, makes Jonathan feel even worse about himself than he already does.

Since the death of his mother and brother, Jonathan has been living to please his father. He’s pushed aside his wants and dreams and it’s because of this, that he’s miserable. When Marco begins to run the company, Jonathan sees a way out of the life he has learned to hate, so he leaves and becomes determined to live a life he feels destined to have.

Fast forward to a year later. When the two men meet on a LGBT cruise, Marco is immediately struck my Jonathan. Though they worked together, Jonathan has changed a lot. He has lost weight, gotten contact lenses and lightened his hair. When they strike up a conversation, Jonathan’s cousin introduces him to Marco as Jonah and to both Jonathan’s relief and worry, Marco is fooled.

One of the strong points of this story is the way the author makes it obvious that there is more to both of these men than meets the eye. Marco isn’t the cold-hearted businessman Jonathan thought he was and Marco sees Jonathan *Jonah* as a warm-hearted, intelligent and kind-hearted person he is. I enjoyed watching these two men really learn about one another. Their chemistry is a good one and I loved how they truly began to connect with one another.

These two men are easy to like. As the story progressed, I hoped the lie about Jonathan’s identity would be revealed in a way that Marco might one day forgive. I hurt for both men when it did, and loved the way Jonathan wooed Marco’s trust and love back to him.

Some readers will probably say this is an insta-love story. In some ways, it probably is, but there is also a real lovely way these men truly began to feel about each other that made it enjoyable for me to read. I honestly don’t know how Marco didn’t suspect Jonathan’s true identity, but all in all, I found this book to be a very enjoyable read.

All the Way to Shore is a sweet and sexy read that will leave a smile on your face. It’s a great choice if you are looking for a romantic, lovely story for a few hours of escapism.

Recommended!
