eBooks I'd Like to Buy

The discussions on Beth Wylde's list have been throwing a lot of extracts my way. From the tail end of the Rainbow Romance Writers' Day I have two:

Dreaming of Harmony by Jade Buchanan
Genre: Gay/Lesbian
Length: Hot Flash (6K)
Price: $2.49

When Erin opened the paper she never expected to see her obituary staring back at her. Is this some idea of a cosmic joke? She's especially unsettled when the deceased woman, who happens to share her name and birthday, starts lecturing her in her dreams. Erin knows she needs to take a few chances, but she doesn't know how to do the one thing she's avoided for months… seduce the girl next door. Lucky for her, fate is about to step in.


Woman's Weeds
Author Kimberly Gardner
ISBN# 978-1-60820-082-5 (ebook)
Release Date July 2009
Cover Artist Deana C. Jamroz
Available At: MlrBooks (ebook)

"Give me thy hand, and let me see thee in thy woman's weeds."

So says Duke Orsino to Viola in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. And so too says
David, a young and gifted director to Kieran, the beautiful young man he's
cast as Viola. But when Kieran's penchant for silk and lace proves to be
more than an acting exercise, David must face the mystery of his own desire
for this stunning man in a dress.

Will their dance across gender lines end with the final curtain, or are
they destined for a long-running engagement?

From the Noble Romance Authors' Day, so far I have four:

by Bryl R. Tyne
Noble Romance Publishing
Cover artists: Fiona Jayde & Bryl R. Tyne
COIN OPERATED BOY Copyright 2009 Bryl R. Tyne

(I'd like to read a longer extract and the blurb on this one, but the extract posted on the list has me intrigued so far)


Mardi Gras
By A.B. Gayle
Due for release on 28th June

In a recent blog, fifty year old American journo, Damien Stanton
bemoaned the fact that Sydney's Mardi Gras parade has lost itsrelevance
and drifted so far from its roots as a commemoration of the Stonewall
Riots - the first time the fairies fought back, claiming that now it was
nothing more than a tawdry commercial extravaganza.

The international blogsphere went ballistic. Ecstatic by the increased
number of subscribers, Damien's publisher has flown him out to Australia
to cover this year's parade.

He is met at the airport by Simon Jennings, ayoung Australian who has
been hired to give Damien a "Real Taste of Australia".

Set against the backdrop of Sydney and its world-famous and colorful
Mardi Gras, the two men find they have a lot more in common than either
at first realize.


Sand by Charlie Cochrane
from the anthology Last Gasp, where four gay couples struggle to find happiness during historical periods on the brink of change.

People come to Syria for many reasons; tourism, archaeology, or because they need to leave Edwardian England to escape potential disgrace. Andrew Parks is one of those, burying past heartache and scandal among the tombs.
Charles Cusiter has travelled here as well, as chaperone to a friend whose fondness for the opposite sex gets him into too much trouble at home. Out in the desert there aren't any women to turn Bernard's head – just the ubiquitous sand.
The desert works its magic on Charles, softening his heart and drawing him towards Andrew. Not even a potentially fatal scorpion sting can overcome the power this strange land exerts.


A Certain Pressure in the Pipes
M/M Steampunk Erotic Novella
by Clancy Nacht
Coming June 28

Conrad Lloyd's father, Governor of an old west town, wishes his son wasn't so interested in inventing, or men for that matter. It isn't until Conrad meets Ezhno, a Native American inventor, that Conrad thinks he can find sexual and intellectual fulfillment all in one man. Will they find their way together despite the societal and familial divide that threatens to keep them apart? Or will Conrad have to satisfy himself with his steam-powered Pleasuring Machine?

My computer is on a severe go-slow this morning, but I'll doubtless have another list when I've cleared my email backlog.

All details shamelessly copied and pasted from the list post, so I'm assuming they're accurate. I'll add links to the 'coming soon' stories when I have them.
