Romance LGBTQ

On the eve of the new millennium, diamond thief Noel Snow seduced FBI special agent Robert Cuffe, then fled into the dawn. Now a successful novelist, Noel uses his capers as fodder for his books, and has modeled his hero's nemesis (and potential love interest) on Cuffe. Though he leaves Robert a drunken phone message every New Year's Eve, Noel hasn't seen or heard from him in a decade.

So he's thrilled when his former lover shows up at his upstate farm one Christmas Eve. Elation quickly turns to alarm when Robert accuses Noel of being responsible for a recent rash of diamond heists. Robert is all business and as cold as ice: it seems his only interest in Noel is to put him behind bars.

Innocent of the crimes, and still as attracted as ever to the oh-so-serious lawman, Noel plans a second seduction—providing he can stay out of jail long enough!

Re: Icecapade

Mystery is certainly an aphrodisiac! This story sounds really good! Definitely going on my TBR stack.

You certainly have that right, Love is a mystery. thank God for it!!!
Marjorie Carmony 7:03am December 13, 2010)

Mystery and romance- what more could you ask for.
Mildred Mayo 7:44am December 13, 2010)

thsi would be great readhave great holiday
Desiree Reilly 8:24am December 13, 2010)

I had never considered before the "mystery" elements that had been included in the many romances that I've read. This is going to make be consider things is an entirely new way. I now also realize that many of the "classic" novels that I have read have had underlining themes of both as well.

When you consider books in this light many other genres come to mind that also include both elements even books like Hunt to Red October, one of my husband's favorites since he flew on P-3's in the Navy. Wait until I tell him that he's been reading mystery and romance books all along!
Jeanne Miro 8:52am December 13, 2010)

Mystery and romance is a great combination!
Angela k 9:23am December 13, 2010)

Love your books
Areta Nadozirny 10:34am December 13, 2010)

It sounds like you put the perfect combination together for this book. Romance with the FBI!! lol Seriously, it does sound like your book will make for interesting reading, and I can't wait to read it! It's also a clever title. I do think the two go together, and agree with your thought process. That's another reason that has drawn me to your book. Have a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year!!
Peggy Roberson 10:40am December 13, 2010)

Sad, sad. That Noel is so lonely each New Year's Eve he has to get drunk to call his one and only love: Just to leave a message.

This sounds absolutely wonderful.
Cynthia Netherton 10:54am December 13, 2010)

Love mysteries with a romance together.
Pam Howell 11:52am December 13, 2010)

I'm a hopeless romantic, so mystery or not I love a good love story;-) Thanks for a chance to win.
Gail Siuba 12:24pm December 13, 2010)

The mystery of romance... a former jewel thief and an embittered FBI agent sounds like two very interesting characters. ICECAPADE sounds like a wonderful read.
Colleen Conklin 12:28pm December 13, 2010)

If only I knew the mystery of life, I'd be one happy women
Susan Harrison 12:56pm December 13, 2010)

Mystery and romance, just the right kind of book for me.
Anna Speed 1:13pm December 13, 2010)

I don't find it mysterious at all. I do however find breaking it down fascinating. The whys that is... For the romances that last there are a lot more layers to get under and deeper holes to dig down to get to the heart of it (no pun intended).
For the shorter ones it more obvious...lol.
Michele Powell 1:16pm December 13, 2010)

I really do like the comment 'love is a mystery.' Never thought about it that way!
Steve Leonard 1:27pm December 13, 2010)

Well Josh, you certainly have me interested now. Mystery is always in romance one way or another.

Love and mystery is like chocolate with strawberry, you can
not have enough.
Cynthia Plaza-Harney 2:37pm December 13, 2010)

Oh, love is a mystery, but just think of what fun it is to find out what can happen. We all need a little mystery in our lives.
Diane Castiglione 2:51pm December 13, 2010)

Great post. Loved reading it. A little mystery can be very good. Sounds like an interesting book. Will have to add it to my list.

Thanks...would love to get it.
Clio Teixeira 5:57pm December 13, 2010)

I think love and mystery work well together because both deal with discovery and all senses are in tune.
Leni Kaye 6:09pm December 13, 2010)

I enjoy a good mystery that has a good romance in it, That is how I found romance to start and now I'm a big romance fan.
Vickie Hightower 6:42pm December 13, 2010)

I just loooove mysteries! Thanks for the giveaway.

Mary Christian 7:34pm December 13, 2010)

Mystery & romance go great together, it's gives the characters a common goal and a reason for being together - one of the spices of life!
Diane Sallans 7:51pm December 13, 2010)

I like both romance books and mystery books so your writings should suit me perfectly.
Sue Farrell 7:52pm December 13, 2010)

Mystery books are my favorite but a little romance included is always a plus. Thanks for the contest!
Teresa Ward 8:01pm December 13, 2010)

The book sounds really interesting. I've always liked mystery and suspense. Romance is rather hit and miss actually. It can be done well, or not. Your book sounds good and I'd like to get a chance to read it.
Amy Christian 8:12pm December 13, 2010)

I really enjoy it when the two are combined. It seems to give extra depth to the story. I would love to read your book.
Debbie Penny 8:18pm December 13, 2010)

Does anyone really not know that love is a mystery?
Selma Cohen 9:33pm December 13, 2010)

sounds like fun! I enjoy a little mystery with my fiction/romance. Especially when it involves historical romance. :)
MaryAnne Banks 9:47pm December 13, 2010)

I love read a mystery with romance in it or a romance with mystery in it.
Sherry Strode 9:57pm December 13, 2010)

Great post. The book sounds like something I'd like to read and I love the cover.
Elaine Gauthier 10:13pm December 13, 2010)

I would love to read this book. It sounds great.
Ginger Hinson 11:49pm December 13, 2010)

Yeah, the only thing better than a romance novel is a romance novel with a murder mystery- or attempted murder will do!
Your book looks awesome- hope I win, if not will check it out.
Merry Christmas!
Maribeth Curry 12:02pm December 14, 2010)

It sure sounds like a winner... I'm looking forward to reading it in the near future!
Cate Sparks 8:39am December 14, 2010)

Your first line, "We're working on a murder together," could be misinterpreted if overheard by anyone who didn't know you. I love mysteries for the subtle clues in the who could have possibly done it and how.
Alyson Widen 12:07pm December 17, 2010)

Romance & murder are a perfect combination. I can't wait to read more.
