STORMING LOVE: FLOOD – Adrian & Lockie by N.J. Nielsen: 30,270 words
Adrian Clarke knows his life is a hot mess. This is only one of the reasons he boards a plane and flies halfway around the world—so he can escape everything that's determined to see him break. Lockie Rivers has worked his whole life on Tenderfoot Downs. After his boss died, Lockie remained as caretaker for the new owner—a man who'd never even set foot on the place. When circumstances bring them face to face, a flash flood comes along to threaten their very existence. Can virtual strangers work together to save their home, their hearts, and find their own slice of heaven?

3.     Prizes Mine: I’m willing to give away a copy of one of my back list stories (just make sure you don’t choose one which is already a free read… To be in with a chance to win all you need to do is leave the following in a comment: name; contact details; title of book; and preferred format).

Let’s just say floods aren’t the best places to be. If you’ve been there all you want to do is forget. I know I did. But sometimes out of the very bad we find the very good in us all. Well that’s how I tried to write my characters. Adrian & Lockie felt like family to me even if they live in a whole different country from mine. I loved being able to create the Tenderfoot Downs property. In reality I took bits and pieces from cattle stations I’ve been on here in Australia and used those as inspiration. Luckily for me the rest of the authors in the Flood portion of the Storming Love series were wonderful to work with. Everyone had something to bring to the table and were willing to help out when I was unsure of certain points in my story. I hope to be able to be a part of something like this in the future as I loved bouncing ideas about Copper Creek off of each other so that the end result runs together smoothly.

The property I created is somewhere I would absolutely love to live. I much prefer the countryside to the hustle and bustle of the city, even if it meant I had to put up with a flood every now and again. Would you? I mean if given the choice between the craziness of a city—any city—and the country life where it’s prone to flooding, which would you choose? I know which would be mine. I actually live on the outskirts of a small city, and I’m surrounded by farmland, though more produce than stock. I just know I could never go back to living the city life. I prefer my little piece of Australian heaven.

 Did say that I have the tendency to ramble, so on that note I want to thank each and every one of you who bought our books, I hope you enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed writing them. I got asked if this is the end of the guys from Tenderfoot Downs and I had to honestly say “I don’t know.” I hadn’t at the time planned on writing any more to their story, but as one fan said: never say never. So now when I’m asked I say it’s a possibility, I’ll just have to wait to see if the other characters decide to take up residence in my head and demand that their stories be told.

About the authors:

NJ Nielsen: NJ needs to write like she needs to breathe. It’s an addiction that she never intends to find a cure for. When you don’t find NJ arguing with Vlad, her muse or writing about the wonderful men in her stories, you’ll find her reading work by other authors she greatly admires. NJ lives in the SE of Qld, Australia with her family who all encourage her writing career even if she does occasionally call them by her character’s names. NJ thinks that anyone taking the time to read her stuff is totally awesome.

Jenn Dease: Jenn Dease is a Chef with a reading and writing addiction.  The six bookcases in her bedroom are proof of this.   She was born and raised in Pittsburgh with one of those families that have four generations in a four block radius.   The Redheads, or her sisters, are the best things in her life. When they want to be.

Jambrea Jo Jones: Jambrea wanted to be the youngest romance author published, but life impeded the dreams. She put her writing aside and went to college briefly, then enlisted in the Air Force. After serving in the military, she returned home to Indiana to start her family. A few years later, she discovered yahoo groups and book reviews. There was no turning back. She was bit by the writing bug.

She enjoys spending time with her son when not writing and loves to receive reader feedback. She's addicted to the internet so feel free to email her anytime.

AC Katt: She lives in New Mexico with her husband and new cat who, just as she does loves paper and words. She got a late start to her writing career but is now in a writing frenzy. Go figure!

Pelaam: Living in clean, green New Zealand Pelaam is a multi-published author of m/m romance and erotica. She's loved writing since childhood and to become an author is a cherished dream come true. She grew up reading fairy tales and watching science fiction, horror and fantasy. When not writing she can be found indulging in her other passions of cookery and wine appreciation.

Cherie Noel: Cherie’s been in love with words since before she drew breath, and doesn’t see that ever changing. She write stories, full stop. Sometimes there’s music with them, sometimes they’re poems, and lately, to her great delight, a plethora of M/M fiction and erotic romance. Yum. Smexy man to the second…or third power…now that’s the kinda math Cherie can get behind!!

The hair curls or frizzes as it will, the eyes are green and tend to look in two different directions—no, really—and the rest is subject to change. You know the guy who didn’t know if he was a butterfly dreaming he was a man or a man dreaming he was a butterfly? Yeah, that’s Cherie, but substitute drag queen for butterfly and wacky, wild ex-Army chick for man.
