Rocking Hard: Volume 3

Less Than Three Press presents the last of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Rockabye | A.F. Henley
Malcolm knows he doesn’t have much going for him. He isn’t beautiful or blessed or possess much in the way of talent. He’s a damned good chef, but he worked hard and demanded a lot of himself to get that far. If that means everyone else around him is miserable, so be it. They can meet his expectations or get out.

Darien is everything Malcolm will never be: lean, beautiful, charming, adored. He is also the man that Malcolm secretly fantasizes over—and definitely not someone Malcolm ever expected to return that interest. There is no way a rock god like Darien would ever really want a dismal, antagonistic chef.

Songs of the Monsoon | Elyse Night
Lyric is long inured to the crappy bands that cycle through Faerie’s Hollow, the club where he works as a bartender. He fully expects the latest Local Band Night to be another night of ear-bleeding hell—but then Fierce Monsoon takes the stage and blows him away. Even more intriguing are the beautiful twins on bass and drums, who make him want to forget all the reasons he prefers to keep a distance …

This story features an M/M/M relationship that includes twins.

Insanity Girls | Alex Powell
In town for just one night, punk rock star Envy chances upon Silveria, a quiet, shy university student, and ends up spending a wild night together that neither of them expected—a night neither wants to end, but uniting two extremely different worlds is much more difficult than getting lost in a moment.

Just the Beer Light to Guide Us | Ashelia McGregor
Chase and Nico have been close friends since childhood, a bond that they’ll never let anything break. Despite the adult world looming over their shoulders, they’d much rather while away their last summer getting high and listening to music. But when they learn their favorite performer, Alister Skye, will be performing in Arizona, they decide to sneak away and make the trip, come what may.

Twisted Euphoria | James L. Craig
Blaine and Chris grew up close in the foster home where they were raised. A talented singer, Blaine uses his voice and a song Chris wrote for him to get himself into the music industry, far away from the miserable life they lived. But fame and fortune are no replacement for the man he left behind, though it might be too late to get him back…

Keeping It Together | Sylvia A. Winters
Sian should be tucked up in bed when she meets Alisha Hart—beautiful, talented, and the star of a band that’s on its way up. Alisha doesn’t have to worry about curfews or homework or overprotective parents; in fact, she doesn’t seem to care about any rules at all. She makes her own, and lives life her way, something Sian can only dream of, and which draws her helplessly to Alisha. But love is complicated, and if there’s such a thing as fate, it seems dead set against them.

Exit Strategy | May Ridge
Whenever Kenzie and Hunter are together, fists fly. Hunter is all attitude, Kenzie is all snob, and whenever they get close they spark—in more ways than one. When Kenzie can no longer take the tempestuous relationship, he decides they might all be better off if he leaves the band and pursues a solo career, before the sparks catch and turn into a fire…

Until Tristan goes off on a research trip, and a few days later the magic in Aiden’s tattoo stops glowing—meaning that in all likelihood Tristan is dead.

Rocking Hard: Volume 3

Less Than Three Press presents the last of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Rockabye | A.F. Henley
Malcolm knows he doesn’t have much going for him. He isn’t beautiful or blessed or possess much in the way of talent. He’s a damned good chef, but he worked hard and demanded a lot of himself to get that far. If that means everyone else around him is miserable, so be it. They can meet his expectations or get out.

Darien is everything Malcolm will never be: lean, beautiful, charming, adored. He is also the man that Malcolm secretly fantasizes over—and definitely not someone Malcolm ever expected to return that interest. There is no way a rock god like Darien would ever really want a dismal, antagonistic chef.

Songs of the Monsoon | Elyse Night
Lyric is long inured to the crappy bands that cycle through Faerie’s Hollow, the club where he works as a bartender. He fully expects the latest Local Band Night to be another night of ear-bleeding hell—but then Fierce Monsoon takes the stage and blows him away. Even more intriguing are the beautiful twins on bass and drums, who make him want to forget all the reasons he prefers to keep a distance …

This story features an M/M/M relationship that includes twins.

Insanity Girls | Alex Powell
In town for just one night, punk rock star Envy chances upon Silveria, a quiet, shy university student, and ends up spending a wild night together that neither of them expected—a night neither wants to end, but uniting two extremely different worlds is much more difficult than getting lost in a moment.

Just the Beer Light to Guide Us | Ashelia McGregor
Chase and Nico have been close friends since childhood, a bond that they’ll never let anything break. Despite the adult world looming over their shoulders, they’d much rather while away their last summer getting high and listening to music. But when they learn their favorite performer, Alister Skye, will be performing in Arizona, they decide to sneak away and make the trip, come what may.

Twisted Euphoria | James L. Craig
Blaine and Chris grew up close in the foster home where they were raised. A talented singer, Blaine uses his voice and a song Chris wrote for him to get himself into the music industry, far away from the miserable life they lived. But fame and fortune are no replacement for the man he left behind, though it might be too late to get him back…

Keeping It Together | Sylvia A. Winters
Sian should be tucked up in bed when she meets Alisha Hart—beautiful, talented, and the star of a band that’s on its way up. Alisha doesn’t have to worry about curfews or homework or overprotective parents; in fact, she doesn’t seem to care about any rules at all. She makes her own, and lives life her way, something Sian can only dream of, and which draws her helplessly to Alisha. But love is complicated, and if there’s such a thing as fate, it seems dead set against them.

Exit Strategy | May Ridge
Whenever Kenzie and Hunter are together, fists fly. Hunter is all attitude, Kenzie is all snob, and whenever they get close they spark—in more ways than one. When Kenzie can no longer take the tempestuous relationship, he decides they might all be better off if he leaves the band and pursues a solo career, before the sparks catch and turn into a fire…

But Jon Kemp does not match what Raef knows about pirates, and the simple quest Raef anticipated turns out to be an epic journey.

Save with LT3 Reward Points!

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Reward Points!LT3’s reward points program is one of many benefits to ordering LT3 titles through the LT3 Book Market. For every $1.00 you spend in the LT3 Book Market, you earn 1 reward point. Each reward point is worth $0.05 off a future order. You can use reward points on ebooks and paperbacks, bundles or preorders, sales and anything you can imagine. If we sell it, you earn reward points from it and can spend your reward points on it!

For example, if you buy an ebook priced at $3.99, you earn 4 reward points, worth $0.20 off a future order. Reward points don’t expire, so you can use them for a small discount on your next order or save them up for a free book in the future.

To view your current reward points balance, log into your LT3 Book Market account. Click the “My Account” link in the upper left to display the Account Dashboard. Scroll down; your Reward Points balance is displayed in the lower left of your Account Dashboard.

There are a couple of caveats: you can’t use a partial reward point balance (i.e., if you have $0.20 in reward points, you can either use it all or none of it). If you redeem your points against an entire order, an LT3 admin needs to approve it on the backend (usually done within a few hours, and you’ll get an email notice), and it takes app. 24 hours after you earn points before you can use them. (If you want them sooner, simply email the admin and we’ll push them through.)

If you have more reward points than can be used on a single order, your balance is saved. E.g., if you have $4.50 in reward point money and you use it on an $3.99 book, that extra $0.50 is saved for future use.

Go forth and save $$!

Whet your appetite for romance with Talya Andor’s Appetite series! Featuring rival chefs Alex and Nik, this series is full of mouth-watering descriptions (and not just of the food), sizzling (sautéing?) sexual tension, and plenty of chef-style hijinks!

  • In Book 1, A Cut Above the Rest, Alex, fresh from culinary school, takes a job in a restaurant owned by a family friend. Primed to join the ranks of the restaurant’s master chefs, he’s dismayed to learn that he’s nothing more than a kitchen lackey. Worse, his boss is none other than Nik, the beautiful, infuriating, highly talented classmate that Alex could never best—or resist.
  • In Book 2, The Competitive Edge, Alex is working hard at becoming Nik’s equal in the kitchen when a new challenge is thrust upon him. Selected to participate in a new cooking competition, Alex readily accepts… except to win, he’ll have to beat not only a handful of strangers, but also Nik, potentially killing any future they have together…
  • In Book 3, Surfeit for the Senses, with the competition behind them, Alex is determined to focus on the one thing that matters most: his budding relationship with Nik. But life is never easy, and the combined weight of family tragedy, television fame, and new and unexpected responsibilities may prove to be more than their new relationship can take…

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Featured Author: Talya Andor

LT3 is mixing up our content this month. July will feature a single author, rather than a handful, and we’re planning some other surprises throughout the month, so stay tuned! You can follow along on LT3’s Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or our new Google Plus.

July’s featured author is Talya Andor!

Talya Andor is a talented author who writes everything from science fiction to contemporary, fantasy to paranormal. She’s written several gay and bisexual novels and short stories for LT3, and we’re pleased to be publishing a lesbian novella from her in our upcoming Damsels in Distress collection (coming soon in February 2015!).

She’s written about professional chefs, college students, psychic twin brothers, vampires, rock stars, and more! Check out her work here, and use coupon code ANDOR at checkout to save 20% on all of her titles (anthologies included!).

(Coupon is good from now through the end of July, and can be used on ebooks or paperbacks. Collection bundles are not included.)

Talya lives in the Pacific Northwest with her girlfriend and their girl-kitty who they believe to be cutest cat in the world, and is constantly balancing a busy slate of boylove stories to write with her day job, hobbies to upkeep, and nail polishes to collect. She has been writing fiction since elementary school and progressed to guy on guy erotica during college, honing her chops on fan fiction until original fiction lured her with its siren call. She loves writing and reading, routinely geeks out over gaming and movies, and watches far too many cooking shows.

You can find Talya at her website, www.talya-andor.com; twitter, @TalyaAndor; or tumblr, http://talya-andor.tumblr.com/.

Prince Telmé Guldbrandsen has been groomed since childhood to become a Prince of the Blood and Commander of the Legion. He will be the youngest person to ever take the Blooding—if he can behave long enough to prove he can be trusted with the responsibility. But behaving is difficult when he is constantly forced to endure Korin: heir to the Reach of the House and the Temple of the Sacred Three, and the snotty brat Telmé is expected to someday marry.

Then the unthinkable happens, and the two young men are thrust into positions for which they are not ready.

Until Tristan goes off on a research trip, and a few days later the magic in Aiden’s tattoo stops glowing—meaning that in all likelihood Tristan is dead.

Rocking Hard: Volume 3

Less Than Three Press presents the last of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Rockabye | A.F. Henley
Malcolm knows he doesn’t have much going for him. He isn’t beautiful or blessed or possess much in the way of talent. He’s a damned good chef, but he worked hard and demanded a lot of himself to get that far. If that means everyone else around him is miserable, so be it. They can meet his expectations or get out.

Darien is everything Malcolm will never be: lean, beautiful, charming, adored. He is also the man that Malcolm secretly fantasizes over—and definitely not someone Malcolm ever expected to return that interest. There is no way a rock god like Darien would ever really want a dismal, antagonistic chef.

Songs of the Monsoon | Elyse Night
Lyric is long inured to the crappy bands that cycle through Faerie’s Hollow, the club where he works as a bartender. He fully expects the latest Local Band Night to be another night of ear-bleeding hell—but then Fierce Monsoon takes the stage and blows him away. Even more intriguing are the beautiful twins on bass and drums, who make him want to forget all the reasons he prefers to keep a distance …

This story features an M/M/M relationship that includes twins.

Insanity Girls | Alex Powell
In town for just one night, punk rock star Envy chances upon Silveria, a quiet, shy university student, and ends up spending a wild night together that neither of them expected—a night neither wants to end, but uniting two extremely different worlds is much more difficult than getting lost in a moment.

Just the Beer Light to Guide Us | Ashelia McGregor
Chase and Nico have been close friends since childhood, a bond that they’ll never let anything break. Despite the adult world looming over their shoulders, they’d much rather while away their last summer getting high and listening to music. But when they learn their favorite performer, Alister Skye, will be performing in Arizona, they decide to sneak away and make the trip, come what may.

Twisted Euphoria | James L. Craig
Blaine and Chris grew up close in the foster home where they were raised. A talented singer, Blaine uses his voice and a song Chris wrote for him to get himself into the music industry, far away from the miserable life they lived. But fame and fortune are no replacement for the man he left behind, though it might be too late to get him back…

Keeping It Together | Sylvia A. Winters
Sian should be tucked up in bed when she meets Alisha Hart—beautiful, talented, and the star of a band that’s on its way up. Alisha doesn’t have to worry about curfews or homework or overprotective parents; in fact, she doesn’t seem to care about any rules at all. She makes her own, and lives life her way, something Sian can only dream of, and which draws her helplessly to Alisha. But love is complicated, and if there’s such a thing as fate, it seems dead set against them.

Exit Strategy | May Ridge
Whenever Kenzie and Hunter are together, fists fly. Hunter is all attitude, Kenzie is all snob, and whenever they get close they spark—in more ways than one. When Kenzie can no longer take the tempestuous relationship, he decides they might all be better off if he leaves the band and pursues a solo career, before the sparks catch and turn into a fire…

Raef, a lonely merman, spends his days watching the dashing Lord Haverford from afar and dreaming of love. When Haverford is robbed by a pirate, Raef vows to reclaim the stolen goods, hoping his victory will buy him the happiness he yearns for with Haverford.

But Jon Kemp does not match what Raef knows about pirates, and the simple quest Raef anticipated turns out to be an epic journey. For while Jon might be a nobler man than Raef believed, he’s still a pirate. Love and loyalty are not on Jon’s agenda, and he certainly has no plans to love someone not entirely human…
