HAT PARTY PETS! Max and Trojan LOVE #LGBT Romance plus Amazon giftcard #GIVEAWAY!

If you're wondering...uh...what the what?! never fear! You've reached a new Sunday Special we're running called Hat Party Pets!

Each Sunday we're doing a short segment to bring you two lovely pets from two lovely LGBT authors. Almost as good as the ADORABLE concept of pets in hats is the fact that each month we're having a prize giveaway! <3 So check it on out and give these animals and their owners a bit of love!

-- Raine O'Tierney and Klaus J. Mousington, Dachshund

Klaus says: My guests today are Little Hoss and Trojan. As different as two animals can be but equally as awesome!

*~*~About Little Hoss~*~*

Rachel Sparks says: 7 years ago Matt had a kitten that was killed by a dog. So we looked in the paper and saw a lady giving away kittens. We went to go get one. He wanted the black and white kitten but it ran and hide. He felt something climbing his leg it was Little Hoss. So he said I will take this one. We know he had his own personality when he grabbed Matt's cheese puffs. 

Two years ago he had to be put on seizure medicine and has been doing great. When he goes to the vet, he refuses to get out of the cage. When they do get him out he slaps them. He rarely meows. When he does he sounds like he is saying No No or Matt. Sometimes says my Momma Momma.

He has two books out. 

Klaus wants to know....

     ...If Little Hoss were a fictional character, who would he be?

Rachel Sparks: The Doctor! <3

And what book is Little Hoss bringing us today...?

The Love They Had For Each Other Was Strong… 

Adam Colbert took Jarrod Baker up on his offer to train him in the law end of ranching contracts. Adam always believed you could never have enough education. Jarrod felt something for Adam as soon as he saw him sneaking late into the lecture. As they grow closer together and their love grows stronger, family members and outsiders want to break them apart. Will their love last or will they be forced to choose?

*~*~About Trojan~*~*

Louise says: Trojan was born on January 13, 2006. I've had him since he was 7 weeks old and back then he was all cute and little, with wrinkly skin and huge feet. I got him from a Dobermann breeder in Wakefield in the UK and the first time I saw him, he was only 3 weeks old and he had 8 brothers and sisters. His parents (particularly his dad, named Solo) were huge, terrifying and very loud. I feared they might eat me before I got to see the puppies!

Trojan is one of the dopiest dogs you're ever likely to meet, and has a head like a brick. He walks around gawking at nothing, trips over his own feet and bumps into things. One time he head-butted my mother and gave her a black eye and on another occasion, he found a pair of her socks that she'd taken off and left in her shoes, and he ate them. We only discovered what happened to the missing socks when they reappeared in the garden - ewww!

One time, when he was about 6 months old, I took him to the park and let him off the lead. It had been raining and was very muddy. When I called him, he came running at full speed, ran straight into me and the pair of us fell into a heap in the mud. Bear in mind he weight about 80 pounds then! So we had to walk a mile and half home from the park, both covered in mud with lots of people staring at us.

Trojan is very vocal and makes a variety of strange whistles, grunts, groans and grumbles when he wants your attention, and they vary in tone and volume, depending on how much attention he gets!

Klaus wants to know....

     ...How would Trojan feel about being the Grand Marshal of a parade?

Grand marshall of a parade? I think he'd love the attention and he certainly likes to think of himself as being in charge. He also likes to be made a fuss of and is quite happy to pose for photos :)

And what book is Trojan bringing us today...?

Two competing gangs of car and drag racing enthusiasts with a shared history of pain and rivalry leading to outright hatred. Two men from opposite sides of the tracks, yet more in common than they’d like to admit.

Paul Appleton is a troubled man who has never been in a relationship, having lost everyone he cared for in his life. His mother died when he was very young and subsequently, he lost his brother and his best friend. Now Paul is convinced love will always end in tears. 

Greg was living on the streets after his parents died and was stabbed by a junkie, ending up in hospital. The Buchanans took Greg under their wing while doing charity work, and Greg joined their loving family when he was adopted. He and his siblings are also car enthusiasts with much more money and therefore better cars than Paul Appleton’s gang.

When they eventually find a connection, Paul fights his feelings and tries to convince himself his lover is only a temporary bit of fun, but Greg has other ideas.
