Pop Quiz: Cruce de Caminos Giveaway

Read our short story “Cruce de Caminos”, out May 21st from Riptide Publishing? Wondering if Sean gets sober? Mad at us for not giving the poor guy his much-deserved HEA? Curious about what other mythologies we’ve got up our sleeve? Want more?

The Druid Stone is an epic-length urban fantasy with M/M romantic elements and a HEA (we promise!), and it comes out from Carina on August 6th, 2012.

Sean never asked to be an O'Hara, and he didn't ask to be cursed by one either.  
After inheriting a hexed druid stone from his great-grandfather, Sean starts reliving another man's torture and death... every single night. And only one person can help.  
Cormac Kelly runs a paranormal investigation business and doesn’t have time to deal with misinformed tourists like Sean.  But Sean has real magic in his pocket, and even though Cormac is a descendant of legendary druids, he soon finds himself out of his depth…and not because Sean's the first man he's felt anything for in a long time.  
The pair develop an unexpected and intensely sexual bond, but are threatened at every turn when Sean's case attracts the unwelcome attention of the mad sidhe lords of ancient Ireland. When Sean and Cormac are thrust backward in time to Ireland's violent history—and their own dark pasts—they must work together to escape the curse and save their fragile relationship.
