Free book (DRM-free, multiple formats) Deadly Nightshade [Gay Romantic Suspense]
Deadly Nightshade, 1st in the Deadly gay romantic suspense series by Victor J. Banis, is All Romance eBooks' Earth Day countdown selection for April 7th, free courtesy of publisher MLR Press.
This only has 3 flames out of 5 for the "Heat Index", which means it's probably not erotica (or at least on the tamer side with the sex scenes) and may well contain more plot than porn. The description actually kind of reads like an FF.net blurb for someone's slashfic of a police procedural buddy movie, come to think of it.
Only with more literate spelling and grammar usage. And less wanton cruelty to the common comma.
Anyway, linkage to the product page and you can still get yesterday's urban fantasy het-looking magical college erotica, The Siren and the Sword, if you missed it.
Straight cop, gay cop, and a woman who "isn't real." Tom and Stanley are on the trail of a drag queen serial killer, and along the way, they find themselves engaged in a more intimate pursuit, trying to resolve another mystery: their unexpected attraction to one another.
If you're interested in reading more for a low price, Banis is one of the ten All Romance catalogue authors listed as contributors to Lethe Press' anthology Charmed Lives: Gay Spirit in Storytelling, which contains over 30 short works of fiction and essays for only 99 cents, and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Anthology, according to the blurb.
ETA: The anthology is in PDF format. However, it is also available from Amazon for $1 and probably in Mobi format, since there's both a Print Length and a File Size listed. However, one of the recent Christian Fiction freebies also did that, and it turned out to be Topaz, so download a sample to check, first.
Incidentally, it too has a mere 3 out of 5 flames "Heat" rating.
ETA 2: No need to check. "Simultaneous Device Usage" also says Unlimited, which guarantees Mobi format and also means that it's DRM-free, for anyone with another reader who wants a non-PDF copy they can easily convert.
