Chance to win a copy of Raising the Rent

RaisingTheRent72webOnly 2 weeks now until release day for Raising the Rent, and the perennially lovely Chris from Stumbling Over Chaos is offering a free copy to one lucky commenter on the giveaway post here! Good luck! Open-mouthed smile


Never fall in love with a customer – especially if it’s sex you’re selling

Rent boy Nathan’s determined to get an education and get off the streets for good. But when he turns up for his first day at college he’s horrified to find his English teacher is one of his regular customers: Stephen, the one Nathan dubbed The Voice because of his educated, honeyed tones.

Stephen’s just as shocked to see Nathan sitting in his class, not to mention terrified he’s about to be exposed as having paid for sex with a student. This could mean public humiliation and maybe the loss of his job. But when Nathan shows he’s only interested in getting his A Levels, not in blackmail, Stephen realises there’s more to the nineteen-year-old than meets the eye.

Nathan still has to earn a living, though – and when a customer turns ugly, he finds himself unable to work and homeless as well. Stephen steps in to help, and Nathan starts to think they could have a future together – but Stephen’s guilt and lack of trust could end this back-to-front romance before it even starts.

Warning: Contains unfashionable haircuts, unreasonably long words and a May-December romance between a not-so-streetwise rent boy and an erudite English teacher.

Erotic Encounters between Upstairs Lords and Downstairs Lads

Rob Rosen has gathered the hottest stories of romance and sex between wealthy aristocrats and the hard-working estate staff, all with a pre–World War I backdrop, including the fashion and art and the latest inventions of the day. War is years away, the estates are huge and sprawling, the fashionably elite have too much time on their hands, while the toiling underclass are always on the lookout for a means to a brighter future — no matter whose bed they end up in. Think Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs, but with enough sex to make the town vicar blush.

Includes my (rather tongue-in-cheek) story: Brass Rags

“Gathers the hottest stories of romance and sex between wealthy aristocrats and hard-working estate staff, all with a pre-WWI backdrop.”
Publishers Weekly

“Imagine if Downton Abbey was a series of m/m erotic stories.”
—Romance at Random

“Drop everything—including your knickers—and pick up Rob Rosen’s new anthology. It’s a fun, sexy read that will have you lusting after scheming valets, wily butlers, and those devilishly handsome lords who lay down the law after they lay down the help.”
—Neil Plakcy, editor of Active Duty: Gay Military Erotic Romance

“I absolutely adored this collection of stories that are anything but ordinary. All I have to say about this book is run, don't walk, to buy this book for your reading entertainment.” –Trish, Rainbow Book Reviews (review includes an overview of each story).

First Review for Raising the Rent

raising the rent

RaisingTheRent72web

Less than a month now until Raising the Rent hits the virtual shelves, and we already have this lovely review from Katinka of Boys in Our Books

If you figure that very little can go wrong with a May-December romance between a rent boy and his client who one day turns out to be – sensation and scandal! – his erudite English professor, you’re right… a gently flowing love story that may or may not have made me reread it the minute I finished it. Recommended? Yes, luv! – 4.5 stars

 

Raising the Rent is due out from  Samhain Publishing on 14th October 2014
