Night Owl Reviews gives A Forbidden Rumspringa 4.5 stars:

The two young men form a friendship and then a relationship. We watch as they struggle between their love for each other and the fear of being abandoned by God, their families and their whole communities. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking.

The last 10% or so had me on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait for the next book. Kudos to Keira Andrews for a really well done and unique love story.

Gay Amish romance was “a fascinating read”


 

a-forbidden-rumspringa-web-copyErotica for All recommends A Forbidden Rumspringa:

I was totally intrigued by the unique premise of Keira Andrews’ novel… I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed.

This was a fascinating read – intriguing, compelling and heart-rending from beginning to end. It was also sweet and erotic all at the same time. I found myself rooting for the boys, hoping they could find a way to solve their problems and find true happiness.

I’m not going to say any more and give the game away – but this is a fantastic gay romance and I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the series. Recommended.

Exploring the intense bonds of battle in SEMPER FI


 

As part of Semper Fi‘s release tour, I blogged at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words about my inspiration for the novel, including this moving image from the Korean War:

Korean War comfort

This evocative shot from the Korean War so eloquently shows the comradeship and tenderness that can exist between soldiers fighting and suffering together. I wanted to explore the evolution of a close friendship when two Marines fall in love. Intense bonds form in boot camp and foxholes in the heat of battle, but what happens to that relationship back in the real world?

Marines make a life together post-WWII: “This is one of those books I would recommend to any romance lover”


 

semper-fi-web-200x300 Fiction Vixen gives Semper Fi an A rating:

This is one of those books I would recommend to any romance lover. It’s just so well done. Every single aspect of Jim and Cal is fully fleshed out and develops at just the right pace.

I had quite a bit of anxiety while reading, simply because I was so absolutely invested in this couple and had no idea how they would make it work in the end. When I did finally get to the happily ever after I read the last word with a smile on my face. So good.

Final Grade: A

“Religion does play a big part…there is also a lot of sex”


 

a-forbidden-rumspringa-web-copySmexy Books praises A Forbidden Rumspringa:

I’m going to be totally honest and say when I accepted this review request I did it with a little snicker. I’ve had very bad luck in the past with Amish romances (I’ve only tried a few) and I just was convinced a male/male Amish romance couldn’t work. But Keira Andrews proved me wrong. I really enjoyed this and I’m totally invested in David and Isaac’s happy ever after.

…There is a HEA at the end of this book but there is also a second book in early 2015 that will continue this couple’s journey. I’m really glad the author gave us closure on their relationship but didn’t rush all the changes that will be happening in their lives.

Two Marines risk everything for love in WWII gay romance SEMPER FI


 

10774974034_c964769244_nI decided to release my new novel Semper Fi on Remembrance Day/Veteran’s Day as my small way of paying tribute to the veterans who have served so bravely in too many wars over the years.

The idea for this gay romance came about when my dad lent me a book on the Guadalcanal Campaign, and I started wondering about the Marines who fought there. Were any of them gay? What were their lives like after the war? Did they find happiness even after the horrors of battle?

From these musings Cal and Jim were born, and I knew I had to tell their story. I hope you’ll take their journey with them!

semper-fi-web-200x300The war is over. The battle for love has just begun.

As Marines, Cal and Jim depended on each other to survive bloodshed and despair in the Pacific. Relieved to put the horrors of war behind him, Jim went home to his apple orchard and a quiet life with his wife and children. Knowing Jim could never return his forbidden feelings, Cal hoped time and an ocean between them would dull the yearning for his best friend.

But when Jim’s wife dies, Cal returns to help. He doesn’t know a thing about apple farming—or children—but he’s determined to be there for Jim, even as the painful torch he carries blazes back to life. Jim is grateful for his friend’s support as he struggles with buried emotions and dark wartime memories. Then Jim begins to see Cal in a new light, and their relationship deepens in ways neither expected. Can they build a life together as a family and find happiness in a world that would condemn them?

5 stars for this gay Amish romance


 

a-forbidden-rumspringa-web-copyKindle Romance Reviews gives A Forbidden Rumspringa 5 stars:

Isaac was an extremely engaging character, and listening to him tell the story kept me hooked from the beginning until the end… Needless to say, there was a lot of angst in this story leading to quite a few tears on my part. Although there was a definite happy ending for the couple, there were enough open issues to make me excited about reading the next story in their saga.
