Monday Musings – Love Comes in Many Flavors, Each one Worth Tasting


Screenshot_012715_075656_AM

It’s my tagline, but it’s also true…love comes in many flavors, each one worth tasting. I take pride in representing that mindset within my books, where romance isn’t restricted by gender concerns and my stories celebrate the gift of loving the human being of your choice, not society’s dictates. In that spirit, and in honor of the recent release of two new books, Hoale Lang Syne and FairySmacked, I’m holding a Facebook event today. https://www.facebook.com/events/904055282972271/

#MySexySaturday Hoale Lang Syne – January 23, 2015!


hls_full

In with the new and out with the old? Sometimes new things come with old vendettas.

A deadly game of cat and mouse has made Adam realize someone sees him as the cheese. And that same someone is setting a trap that could put an end to Adam’s love life issues…once and for all.

~~*~~

Music throbbed on the air like an audible sex act…no doubt tightening the sexual core of every living being in the place. A giant disco ball spun in dizzying circles high above the dance floor, sending fractured silver light around the room like elusive confetti.

It was a night filled with the promise of tomorrow. An evening taut with sensual innuendo. And as midnight pounded nearer with each bass beat of the music, lovers pressed ever closer, their lips a breath away in readiness for the intersection of one year with another. The moments sparkled with expectation…throbbed with promise.

And he was outside it all…lonely…immensely sad…and feeling aggressive in his aloneness. Still, he anticipated the new year like everybody else, determined to make the changes necessary to get what he wanted…needed…in his life. He viewed it as his pivot point. It was the moment when he got his life in order. And he was willing to do whatever it took to make the pivot happen.

Anything at all.

His gaze slipped toward the long, padded benches along the wall. To the figure standing just beyond the spray of silver light. He watched as the lean, muscular form straightened away from the wall, the dark head lifting to observe the swirling silver globe in anticipation of its descent.

He stared, licking suddenly dry lips. He was so close to happiness. All he needed to do was reach for it. And he was determined that he would make that reach. He was thirty seconds from embracing his destiny.

With that thought pulsing inside his mind, he pushed away from the bar and stalked toward the lone figure on the edges of the festivities, shoving a path through the mindless masses to get to him. The man he loved more than life itself.

His future.

Have a SEXY Saturday, at the Hop!

DUSTED

Dusted_200x304

Bounty Hunter Matthew Blood always gets his man. Even when that man’s a fairy.

Bounty Hunter Matthew Blood is a bloodhound shifter. Tracking things comes very naturally to him. Hunting a skip who’s out on bail for trafficking in drugs, he watches the skip get blasted out of a fourth floor window. When Matt goes after the only other person in the vicinity, he gets taken down in a flash of light. Later, he learns that the fairy who blasted him hadn’t so much murdered his skip as accidently dropped him out of a window trying to escape the man’s attempts to strip him of his fairy dust.

Turns out there’s a fairy dust ring afoot and Matt may be the only one who can help the sexy fairy close it down. Working with a unique posse, including someone from Matt’s home planet, Eninac, the two men go after the ring, discovering a fiery mutual attraction in the process.

4.5 Nymphs from Literary Nymphs Reviews: “Declan Sands has created an exciting, as well as very enjoyable romantic suspense. I am looking forward to the next episode.”

4.5 Stars and a Sizzling rating at SensualReads.com: “Mystery and humor, passion and heat all combine to make Blood Hound 1: Dusted by talented Declan Sands a captivating read that leaves us all panting for more.”

4 stars from Manic Readers: “What do you get when you mix an off planet shifter, a sexy fairy and a dead drug dealer…fairy-smacked! A fun, sexy, well-written novella and I for one can’t wait to see where this series goes next.”

Love Romances and More: “I absolutely adored this book. It was funny, smoldering hot and kept me on the edge of my seat as I flipped the pages, hoping Rum and Matthew would be able to find the missing fairies. Declan Sands is a talented storyteller who packs a lot in this story but also doesn’t overkill with lots of telling instead of showing. The story flows smoothly, the simmering sexual tension between Matthew and Rum is quite hot and some of the phrases, such as fairy smacked, left me giggling at times. This is a fast paced story that will keep you highly entertained.”
