Free (DRM-free, multiple formats) Death of a Pirate King [Gay Erotic Murder Mystery]
Death of a Pirate King, 4th in the Adrien English Mysteries by Josh Lanyon, is a contemporary m/m amateur sleuth mystery/erotic romantic suspense, free courtesy of the author's self-imprint Just Joshin and All Romance eBooks as their 12 Days of Christmas countdown giveaway for the 19th.
This has 4 flames on the heat index, but is apparently a full mystery/suspense story with a real amateur sleuth plot to go along with all the sex and relationship drama (some reviews for other volumes remark on the surprising proportion of the former to the latter).
Free without DRM in the format of your choice @ ARE for the next 48 hours. You can also get the previous day's offering, the Canadian-authored 5-flame f/m/m/m cowboy ménage erotic romance Catch Me If You Can for a limited time if you missed it.
Lanyon doesn't seem to have anything particularly low-priced or on sale at ARE, but you can get the omnibus edition of books 1 & 2 in the Adrien English Mysteries for $4.90 in DRM-free MultiFormat via Fictionwise using this weekend's 30% off discount coupon (or even cheaper if FW offers a nicer one for the inevitable Boxing Week sales). It's also available for $5.80 regularly at both Amazon and B&N if you'd rather spend a bit more money to get a syncable version for your reader. The rest of the books seem to be priced at $6.99 each, no matter where you get them.
Lanyon also has many more m/m mostly mystery/suspense/thrillers available via Fictionwise, and for his Carina Press and Samhain titles which are unobtainable/uncouponable at FW, you can pick them up at a discount from Kobo using their current selection of coupons (or whatever you manage to luck out on by playing their daily puzzle discount contest).
And if you've been on MR awhile, you might want to check your Amazon/B&N archives for Lanyon's The Dickens With Love, an Xmas-themed freebie offering from Samhain last year which might make a festive addition to your holiday reading list. A novella in the "Petit Morts" mystery series by Lanyon was also offered free via Rainbow eBooks earlier this year.
Gay bookseller and reluctant amateur sleuth Adrien English's writing career is suddenly taking off. His first novel, Murder Will Out, has been optioned by notorious Hollywood actor Paul Kane.
But when murder makes an appearance at a dinner party, who should be called in but Adrien's former lover, handsome closeted detective Jake Riordan, now a Lieutenant with LAPD -- which may just drive Adrien's new boyfriend, sexy UCLA professor Guy Snowden, to commit a murder of his own.
