Gay Office Romance Who Moved My Holepunch?

Gay office romance Who Moved My Holepunch? is now available at Amazon for only 99p!

Darren Fording works as a Senior Timetabling Officer for his local college. When Max Sheldon arrives to take over as Acting Registrar, Darren finds himself consumed by lust for his new boss and making the kind of decisions he as a stuck-in-his-ways administrator has never made before. 

When Darren initiates a full-on kiss during a meeting with Max, the enthusiasm of the Registrar's response takes him by surprise. Max is reluctant to pursue a relationship with an employee, but Darren is equally determined not to take no for an answer. Can he prove his worth to the man he's beginning to love and show him he's a dab hand at educational politics as well? 

Reviews

"I found this book a breath of fresh air; it was funny, witty and very cute. I loved Darren; he was just perfect as the insecure (well, at the beginning) quirky administrator … His two assistants, the chatty, gossipy Miranda, and the quiet sensible Stewart were well written as well, and the aloof Max was simply adorable. … I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you want to laugh, giggle and smile as you turn every page then this book is perfect." (From a 5-star Recommended review at Mrs Condit Reads Books) 

"It was a fascinating read. I laughed. I gasped. And I felt the exquisite chemistry this author achieved between her characters. The world they were put into was not something I anticipated, but even college administrative jobs can be fascinating with a creative mind. A lovely novella not to be missed." (From a review at MM Good Book Reviews) 

"This book is fun and funny, and Darren is wonderful. Max is right, Darren isn't like everyone else. These two must survive the hot mess that is the inspection through some creative thinking. A light funny read with great characters." (From a review at Hearts On Fire Reviews)

Happy reading!

Gay BDSM romance Give and Take

Gay BDSM romance Give and Take is now available at Amazon for only 99p!

David has spent two years grieving for the loss of his partner to cancer. When he decides to move on, he visits a gay bar for the sole purpose of hooking up with someone – in spite of his concerns that, as he’s in his mid-forties, he might be too old. There he meets Jeff, a young barman, and realises that Jeff is in fact the one he wants to take home most of all. 

During their evening together, David discovers a side of himself that he never knew existed but, when the morning comes, can he persuade Jeff that it could be more than a simple one night stand? 



Reviews

“The beauty of this story is watching David evolve to be free of his demons. I truly cared about David and wanted to see him love again. Jeff is older than his years suggest and is perfect for David. Their love will make you laugh, cry and want more of them. I definitely did.” [From a 5 star review at TwoLips Reviews] 

"This was a nice short, light BDSM story. I liked that David got to give up his control, because he spent so much time being the decision maker for most things in his life … The author possesses a skill to tell an entire life story with just a few pages, and only leaving you with the feeling of just wanting more. I wanted more, just to see beyond the night that David and Jeff share." (From a review at Pants Off Reviews) 

“This was such a great little story. I liked David, liked that he had taken the initiative to move on with his life. I also sympathised with his complete weariness at the responsibilities in his life and his longing to relinquish control ... a well written story with an unusual theme of the younger man being the dominant partner.” [From a review (graded "Excellent") at The Well Read Book Blog]

I hope you enjoy the read!

Gay Romance The Paranormal Detection Agency

Gay romance The Paranormal Detection Agency is now available from Amazon for only 99p!

When paranormal investigator Jack Atkinson meets new client Aaron Riley, he doesn't expect the attraction he feels for the man. Neither does he expect the haunting Aaron describes and which Jack is determined to solve. 

After their first meeting, the two men begin a passionate affair, which Jack is keen to continue. However, Aaron's attentions are focused on the need to rid himself of his ghosts and soon Jack discovers family secrets can run deeper than even he imagined. Will the truth destroy Jack and Aaron's budding relationship, or are they strong enough to survive it? 

Reviews

"The characters are fun. They are well developed, and you get to like them. They are as believable as a paranormal investigator and the man who falls for him can be. And I have to say the suspense of the book, the drama, finding the answers to the questions the haunting brings about is fun, and well done in the tradition of some of the mystery writers of our time. I really enjoyed The Paranormal Detection Agency, and recommend it for a quick, fun read that is not just like everything else. You will like it!" (From a review at GGR Reviews) 

"Anne Brooke created an amazing cast of characters for The Paranormal Detection Agency. Each had their own particular brand of snark. At the same time, they were each quite capable when the going got tough. The ending was unexpected but the finale was glorious. Take in The Paranormal Detection Agency by Anne Brooke and see for yourself." (From a review at Sensual Reads) 

"The Paranormal Detection Agency is an entertaining read. Ghost, crazy family, and handsome men; what paranormal fan could pass it up? … I love the relationship between Jack and Aaron. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Brooke." (From a review at Coffee Time Romance)

Happy reading!

Thirty-six year old potter Brady Treherne is shocked to come face-to-face with his ex-lover, Philip, during what appears to be a simple job interview. Philip was both the love of his life and the man who got away and seeing him now catapults Brady into revisiting memories he’d hoped he’d left behind. 

Later that evening, Philip calls on him at home, and Brady finds himself having to make a choice between the man he used to love, and the new relationship he has just begun with another man. Which will he choose and can Brady reconcile his past with his future at all? 




Reviews

Although this is only a short it's packed with an emotional intensity and contains a very flawed first person narrator in Brady ... Overall a great read with strong characterisation and fluid writing. Grade: Excellent.” [From a review at Well Read Reviews] 

“Brooke excels in short story format and this offering has all the hallmarks I’ve come to expect: good writing, developed characters, a tense situation, sensuality over explicit sex, and an unusual ending. Basically this short hits all the high points and is very entertaining to read ... Easily recommended for contemporary romance fans.” [From a review at Three Dollar Bill Reviews]

I hope you enjoy the read!

I'm invisible ...

Invisible me
Am greatly amused that when I ask for the rights back for a short story of mine, the publisher tells me he's never heard of me, LOL! I replied with the link for the story on his site - perhaps that will help him to track me down ... Good to be so memorable, eh!

Tommy's Blind Date: Gay BDSM Romance

Gay BDSM romance Tommy's Blind Date is now available on the Kindle at only 99p!

Thirty-two year old Tommy Godolphin has been on a series of blind dates, as he doesn’t want to be single any more. However, none of them really hits the spot and the latest one has proved a complete, if amusing, disaster. 

When he recounts what happened to his best friend, Jacob, he expects Jacob to laugh with him as usual, but this time he doesn’t. Instead, Jacob challenges Tommy to go out on a blind date with him, to see what, if anything, he might be doing wrong. If Tommy accepts, how will their friendship survive? 




Reviews: 

"Witty, sweet AND steamy - believe me when I say I felt the passion reaching out and grabbing me solidly - in all the right places, from my Kindle." (From a review at On Top Down Under Reviews) 

"A delightful and steamy short story that is close to perfection. It’s a quick, delicious bite with an incredibly hot sex scene, wonderful tension, and characters that are by turns funny and interesting. The unique British flair to Brooke’s writing is always an added bonus and this is easily one of my favorites from an author with a considerable short story backlist.” (From a review at Three Dollar Bill Reviews) 

"These two men are a delight to read about, I am sure Ms. Brooke had a blast writing about them, it came through in the writing very clearly. The subtle joking, the colorful way the characters describe each other and themselves. The plain fun that goes into Tommy getting ready for this all important date had me laughing until I was crying. The way that Jacob took charge when Tommy got to the restaurant late and kept it through the rest of the date; had me panting to be his date …" (From Lyssa Reviews)

For One Night Only: Gay BDSM Romance

Gay BDSM romance For One Night Only is now available at Amazon for 99p!

Jake Morrison's position as Dom has been deeply shaken by his unwitting role in the recent death of his sub. When he's allowed back into Langley's Pleasure House after a six-month ban, he longs to make amends in any way possible. 

Club-owner Langley's surprising request for an unexpected encounter, however, tests Jake's sense of purpose to the core. He's willing to learn, but the lesson might not be one he expects... 

Reviews

"This short story is a carefully crafted piece of work, almost an analysis of the clearly complex concept of power in BDSM. There is a judicial balance between the two sexual encounters described that reinforces the lesson of this BDSM morality tale ... this was a compelling piece of writing ..." (From a review at Jessewave Reviews) 

"This is one of those books that sticks with the reader even after they have finished the book and has you wondering what more will happen between Jake and Langley in the future. The author did a wonderful job of pulling me into the story and keeping me entertained all the way to the end." (From a review at The Romance Studio) 

"This is a story about persona growth as much as power play … If you like pondering the nature of D/s relationships, are interested to see the impact emotions can have on something many would call purely physical encounters, and if you enjoy well-written stories, don't miss this one!" (From a review at QMO Books)

I hope you enjoy the read!
