If you’re new to Payhip it’s easy to use, but best on a computer rather than a mobile device. Payhip will give you downloads in both mobi and epub format, and Payhip is also great for authors as well as readers, because I get 85% of the cover price via Payhip rather than the 70% I get from Amazon.

All my books that are non-Amazon exclusive are available via Payhip. You can see all my titles here: https://payhip.com/jaynorthcote

Mate, family, pack, home… can Quinn and Kellan have it all?

Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can’t name, he’s always felt different but never known why.

Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn’s town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight—and scent—of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can’t trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates?

Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn’s heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn’t enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he’ll have to choose between the only life he’s ever known and the man he loves.

*****
Zac never had a family of his own, but Rudy has enough to share.

Shy, inexperienced Rudy has a crush on Zac from the moment his new colleague walks through the door. On an office night out before Christmas, Rudy finds the courage to make a move, and they form a tentative bond. When he discovers Zac will be alone at Christmas, he invites Zac to come home with him.

Zac prefers to keep people at arm’s length. Yet when Rudy offers him a family Christmas it’s impossible to resist. With no parents of his own, Zac is pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by Rudy’s. The only drawback is that everyone assumes they’re a couple. Unwilling to disappoint Rudy’s mum and make Christmas awkward, they decide not to deny it.

It’s not a chore for Zac to pose as Rudy’s boyfriend, but the pretence makes him want things that scare him—things like a real relationship with Rudy. Zac’s suffered enough rejection in his life already and is afraid to risk his heart. If he can get over his past rejection and let Rudy inside his armour, he might get more for Christmas than he ever imagined.

Guest Post: A Love Song for the Sad Man in the White Coat by Roe Horvat

I’d like to welcome Roe Horvat to my blog today with the low down on his new release, A Love Song for the Sad Man in the White Coat.

LS_COVER-FINAL_thumbnail.jpg

Blurb

Simon had always expected love to feel different than this. Whether it was his Catholic upbringing or the poetry he’d read—Simon had thought that true love would be uplifting, fulfilling, that it would give a meaning to his loitering, and add joy to his leisure. But not this kind of love. This love was a flesh-eating monster, sharp-clawed and evil-eyed, ravishing his mind with medieval cruelty.

Dr Simon Mráz is a respected specialist and lecturer at the Charles University in Prague. He is a serious man, responsible. His students call him The Cruel Doctor Frost not because he’s unkind, but because of his unwavering, ice-cold composure. As a psychiatrist, he values sanity. And sanity can be found in work, restraint, and self-control.

Not many know of that one time in the past when The Cruel Doctor Frost lost his cool. His ill-advised, secret affair with a student left Simon deeply wounded. Since that day, every minute of Simon’s life has been a struggle to remain sane, functioning. He’s managed so far—as long as he is needed, as long as his work makes a difference, Simon can scrape together enough strength to get up in the morning and run off the nightmares. But when his friends begin drifting away, his beloved protégé becomes independent, and the man who bereaved Simon of his precious sanity might return… Simon’s mind and body stop responding to his impressive willpower.

Author Bio:

Roe was born in former Czechoslovakia and endured a miserable adolescence in the post-communist wasteland. Equipped with a dark sense of sarcasm, they left for Germany and later, Spain.

Finally, they settled in Sweden, where the weather is nasty but the freedom great. Roe works as a motion graphics artist, loves Jane Austen, Douglas Adams and everything in between, preferably by the fireplace with a strawberry daiquiri in hand. Roe writes contemporary romantic fiction – it conveniently balances out their real-life pragmatism.

When not hiding in the studio doing graphics, Roe can be found trolling cafés in Gothenburg, writing, and people-watching.

Excerpt

Matěj stared at the text message from Tina for two useless seconds before it sank in. He stuffed the phone into his jeans pocket and fidgeted, looking through the graffiti-covered window on the never-ending line of vehicles. The tail lights colored the drizzle toward a murky, horror-movie red. It was too early for the sun to be up yet, and when the time came, it would not be strong enough to penetrate the gray cover of the clouds above Prague. In the winter rain, Matěj didn’t see the busy street, the cars and buses, all those people fighting each other with black umbrellas. What he saw was a giant knot of earthworms in a pile of mud. The whole city looked squishy, dirty, writhing while drowning.

The tramway moved again, and Matěj’s whole body jerked backward. At the last second, he caught the pole running along the ceiling and kept himself upright. Swaying in sync with the tram’s motion, he held on until the door finally opened and squeezed his slender body out into the throng of huddled figures on the traffic island. He began running at full speed—as fast as the crowds allowed him—his messenger bag banging around his hip.

Dr. Simon Mráz, or The Cruel Doctor Frost, as the whole student body called him, was overseeing the exam in Internal Medicine today. It was unexpected yet not impossible. If one of the professors was too busy or too self-important to be present for finals, a younger Faculty member would be assigned the tedious task. Dr. Simon Mráz was one of the youngest, therefore most abused assets. His specialty was psychiatry, and he had led two introductory seminars on the topic during the last semester.

In his five years of study, it was the only course where Matěj had a one hundred percent attendance score, and it was not psychiatry that had his full attention during those seminars. In fact, he could barely remember a thing, except for the outline of Dr. Mráz’s lean back under his white coat, his almost invisible smile, and those defined, large, capable hands…

Matěj could not be late. As he ran, his idle brain teased him with imprudent ideas—indecent, delicious ideas. The aloof and brilliant Dr. Mráz had been on Matěj’s mind for some time; today’s exam was an opportunity that would not repeat itself in the foreseeable future.

Matěj jumped over a dog’s leash and continued his mad dash toward the campus building complex, noisily entering the building’s heavy antique double doors with two minutes to go. He almost passed the downstairs cafeteria but changed his mind and approached the counter without acknowledging the line of co-eds. He had the kind of reputation that, on occasion, allowed him to cut in front of the line.

“Hey, lovely! Give me a black one, I beg you,” he said breathlessly but assertively and threw a tenner on the counter. The coin twirled and stilled. The girl behind the counter blushed and hurried to the espresso machine immediately.

Matěj winked at the stunned geeky youngster who was first in line. “Sorry, emergency. Finals in Intern Med, like, right now.” Matěj grinned. The student nodded mutely, his mouth snapping shut.

Matěj Chrs was well known among the other medics. Those who did not know him gave him the leeway regardless. He was visible everywhere with his tattoos, ear gauges, red shoes, and tight clothes, all of which were considered outrageous by the Faculty staff.

Taking the mug and leaving the girl with a flirtatious smile, Matěj took off through the corridor. It was exactly 7:30; the exam was starting right at that moment. Nevertheless, Matěj stopped in front of a bulletin board. Suddenly inspired, he deposited the paper coffee mug on the tiled floor, stole a beige Post-it from the board and tore away a small clean sticky piece. He dug out his pen and tapped it against his lips; he had no time for a limerick. The note had to be short, witty, and to the point.

He smiled as he wrote a single sentence and added his phone number underneath. It was over the top and beyond. There was no way it could work, but he was more than willing to take the risk because if it did work, it would be…glorious.

Folding the note carefully, he used the torn Post-it as tape to attach it to the coffee cup. With the message prepared, he strolled casually to the lecture hall and pushed open the wooden door. He was still smiling when, four minutes late, he entered his exam.

The note he’d taped to the mug said:

Are you wondering the same things as I am?

Details

Keeping secrets is never a good way to start a relationship

Theo hardly has time to date. Between work and caring for his four-year-old son there aren’t many hours left over. He’s lonely though, so he joins a hook-up app and starts chatting to a guy called Luke. Luke seems friendly and they arrange to meet. Theo doesn’t mention that he has a child. It’s early days and he’s worried about putting Luke off before they get to know each other.

Luke is currently working as Santa at the local shopping mall. He figures Theo never has to know. Christmas will be over soon and Luke will move on to a new, less embarrassing job. He’s surprised when Theo and a little boy visit Santa one afternoon. Theo doesn’t recognise Luke, and Luke realises he’s not the only one with a secret.

Despite misgivings on both sides, they start dating, and the chemistry is amazing. But as Christmas approaches their secrets pile up like colourful packages under the tree. If they’re not careful, they’ll lose the best gift of all—each other.
