Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit & Giveaway - Eden Winters

Plum Lovely Lady aka Eden Winters has stopped by with a naked cowboy, flash fiction and a giveaway wrapped inside a really big box. Since we unicorns are all about safety first, we're going to assist with helping hooves in unwrapping.

This flash fic features Kerry and Armando, a horse shifter and bull shifter couple from Hooves and Horns, Eden Winter's contribution to the Butt Riders on the Range anthology:

Fuck. Not again.

Broad daylight. Stark naked. Wearing nothing but a rope. After last time, Kerry had sworn never again.

Like he had the time before.

And the time before that.

Would he ever learn? It wasn’t like he was some untried colt. He knew better.

Damn it.

Naked in a field. Not a stitch of clothes in sight.

He sighed and trudged barefoot toward the farmhouse. Ouch! Stick! Ouch! Burr! With each step he grew madder and madder. Just wait, next full moon after running with the herd, he’d shift back first and steal his lover’s clothes.

See who got the last laugh.

Out in the field a filly neighed a “Hey, there, handsome.”

Oh fuck. “Don’t even think about it.”

Yeah, Armando would get his. Just wait.


Let Eden know what you thought about Kerry & Armando's hi-jinx in the comments. BMBR thanks Eden for stopping by and sharing with us!

Author Bio:

You will know Eden Winters by her distinctive white plumage and exuberant cry of “Hey, y’all!” in a Southern US drawl so thick it renders even the simplest of words unrecognizable. Watch out, she hugs!

Driven by insatiable curiosity, she possibly holds the world’s record for curriculum changes to the point that she’s never quite earned a degree but is a force to be reckoned with at Trivial Pursuit.

She’s trudged down hallways with police detectives, learned to disarm knife-wielding bad guys, and witnessed the correct way to blow doors off buildings. Her e-mail contains various snippets of forensic wisdom, such as “What would a dead body left in a Mexican drug tunnel look like after six months?” In the process of her adventures she has written fourteen m/m romance novels, has won several Rainbow Awards, was a Lambda Awards Finalist, and lives in terror of authorities showing up at her door to question her Internet searches.

When not putting characters in dangerous situations she’s a mild-mannered business executive, mother, grandmother, vegetarian, and PFLAG activist.

Her natural habitats are airports, coffee shops, and on the backs of motorcycles.

Eden has offered a digital copy of Diversion to one lucky winner!

There are good guys, bad guys, and then there’s Lucky.

Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter flaunts his past like a badge of honor. He speaks his mind, doesn’t play nice, and flirts with disaster while working off his sentence with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. If he can keep out of trouble a while longer he’ll be a free man–after he trains his replacement.

Textbook-quoting, by the book Bo Schollenberger is everything Lucky isn’t. Lucky slurps coffee, Bo lives caffeine free. Lucky worships bacon, Bo eats tofu. Lucky trusts no one, Bo calls suspects by first name. Yet when the chips are down on their shared case of breaking up a drug diversion ring, they may have more in common than they believe.

Two men. Close quarters. Friction results in heat. But Lucky scoffs at partnerships, no matter how thrilling the roller-coaster. Bo has two months to break down Lucky’s defenses… and seconds are ticking by.
