Show Some Love Blog Hop

Valentines Blog Hop Header

Hello and welcome to the Show Some Love blog hop, hosted by WLK Book Promotions.

I’m guessing you’re here because you love… well… love! It’s that romantic time of year, where hearts, flowers and chocolates are in abundance. This year, because of the Fifty Shades of Grey film release, there are probably handcuffs, blindfolds, whips and sex toys everywhere, too! So, how about we go for something a little bit different on this post.

How about… forbidden love? It’s a theme I’ve written about on more than one occasion, with my latest, Desert Heat, hitting digital bookshelves just a couple of weeks ago. If you enjoy M/M military/interracial erotic romance, then show some love to this…

Their love is forbidden by rules, religion and risk. Yet still they can’t resist.

Captain Hugh Wilkes is on his last tour of duty in Afghanistan. The British Army is withdrawing, and Wilkes expects his posting to be event-free. That is, until he meets his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, who awakens desires in Wilkes that he’d almost forgotten about, and that won’t be ignored.

Please note: this book was previously published as part of the Unconditional Surrender bundle.

Here’s a snippet from the book:

It was mainly Hunter that kept him firmly in the closet. If the news reached that old bigot’s ears—and it undoubtedly would, as gossip spread like wildfire in the military—well, Wilkes didn’t really want to think about what would happen. Nothing good, anyway.

He shook his head, trying to uproot the unpleasant thoughts before they took hold. It was silly, in any case. Yes, Balkhi was kind of cute, but he was an Afghan, and a Muslim, for Christ’s sake. Both were known for being even more bigoted than his damn boss. If Wilkes came out, things wouldn’t exactly be easy—but a Muslim? Things could turn out very badly for him back home, to put it lightly. That was reason enough for any gay Muslims that existed to keep quiet about their sexuality.

It was all completely irrelevant, anyway. Balkhi was not gay. And even if he was, there was no way Wilkes was going there—it was just too risky for all those concerned. Careers, friendships, relationships and lives would be at stake.

Put it out of your mind. What the hell is wrong with you? The first sniff of a bloke you’re attracted to and you’re thinking about the consequences? Ridiculous. Forget about it and get on with your bloody job, you idiot.

    I enjoy reading romances with a twist, be it an age gap or a slight kink, or even better total opposites and a romance that does not follow the norm. Thank you for a chance to win a copy of Illicit Heat and wow I also love your choice of covers 🙂
