VOODOO ‘N’ VICE! HAWT MM SCI-Fi from Kc Burn. 1 4 U

CARINA_0514_9781426898419_VoodooViceLgHi everyone —

Today, i’m so happy to welcome my friend and partner-in-crime, Kc Burn. I’m lucky to have Kc in my RWA chapter and we have breakfast together almost every month. Take a look at this HAWT new book she’s brought us don’t you love the cover?). Plus, she’s giving away a copy to one commenter so be sure to leave a comment and say hi!

VOODOO ‘N’ VICE Inspiration

There’s a Polynesian restaurant in Florida. It’s been there for years – my parents took me there several times over the years when we were in Florida on vacation, and when I met my boyfriend (the one who eventually became my hubby) I introduced him to it. It was the first dinner we had on our honeymoon thirteen years ago, and it was the site of a couple of anniversary dinners afterward. It’s been years since I’ve been there, and now that I live in California, I may never be back, but I have so many wonderful memories there, and because of it, I’ve got a fondness for the scent of gardenias.

The restaurant has a dinner show where they demonstrate a number of traditional dances and songs from the various Polynesian islands, including Samoan fire dances. The men who demo the fire dance are stunning. Just stunning. And they have such gorgeous tattoos.

One day while watching the show, I got the idea for a reserved, straight-laced military man watching the show, and getting hot under the collar (pun intended).  I kept that idea percolating in my mind for… years. Until Captain Arcturus, a by-the-book asshole of captain, showed up in the second of my Galactic Alliance series. And I realized with a little tweaking, I could use this idea to redeem the captain. Tai the not-entirely-human fire dancer sprang to life, ready to mesmerize a man who should despise everything about Tai.

Of course, it wasn’t quite as simple as that to work this storyline into the world building I’ve done for the Galactic Alliance series, but it sure was a lot of fun.

Want to win a book? Just comment and tell me about tattoos – love ‘em or hate ‘em? If you love them, well, let’s just say the tattoo you see on the (OMG – super hot) cover is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ll send an ebook to one random commenter.

Voodoo ‘n’ Vice is the third book in my Galactic Alliance series with Carina Press, but it can be read on its own.

After nearly causing a galactic incident, fleet captain Gideon Arcturus is disgraced, demoted and exiled with nothing to do but pass the time at a seedy club on seedier planet Elora Ki. It’s no place for a straight-laced soldier, but following the rules is what got him there in the first place. When he meets a mesmerizing fire dancer, he’d do anything to get close to the flame.

Tai doesn’t date customers—it’s far too dangerous for a man who was once for sale. But the shy, awkward Gideon entices him, and the two spend Gideon’s leave tangled together, neither knowing the passion that stirs within them won’t soon subside.

When a violent drug lord forces Tai back into slavery, Tai has no choice but to give up his new love. But when Gideon learns that Tai’s fate lies with those who brought about his own ruin, he’ll need to revisit his own difficult past in order to save them both.

    I like tattoos with meaning and not too overwhelming. Sleeves are just too much for me, but I love the hip tattoos in the photo! BTW, fantasy/scifi mm is my very favorite subgenre!

    • KC Burn says:

      Susan, not enough people enjoy sci-fi m/m so I’m glad it’s one of your favs 🙂

  2. stella says:

    HI KC!!
    I love tattoos!!!! I’m dying to have one but I’m scared shitless of needles…
    I haven’t read this series yet so thanks for this chance

    • KC Burn says:

      Hi Stella – I hope one day you’ll have your tattoo 🙂 Who knows? Maybe they’ll invent a needle-less way to tattoo!

  3. ELF says:

    I am not a big fan of tattoos on myself but I admit that they can be beautiful on others. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck on the new release, sounds like a great story!

    • KC Burn says:

      Thanks, ELF 🙂 And I agree, I like the way tattoos look on other people. I only have a small one and may get a couple more small ones, but for extensive work? Best admired on others!

  4. SheriV says:

    I would love to read. Your series sounds so interesting.

    I love tattoos! I love them on gorgeous male bodies as well as having 2 of my own. I have a dragon above my right breast and a mystic tiger on my upper left back. I want at least 2 more – a wolf above my left breast and an Ambigram of my kids names on my upper left arm.

  6. Elizabeth Gray says:

    Tattoos have to match the person most of the time for me. I know a guy who started getting tattoos, then was told that his body told the story of his life. So, he continued to get them as his life progressed. He had an awesome body of work.

    Sounds like a very good book. I will check it out.

  7. paula says:

    Love tattoos on guys. If they’re not out of control like no face tats.

    • KC Burn says:

      Face tattoos are one of those things… I could write them into a book and enjoy them, but in real life they don’t seem like a very good idea.

  8. Nicole Newman says:

    I love tattoos! I have one, I would love more but I can not get anymore because of my disability. Both of my daughter have tattoos, the have matching ones on their wrists. My oldest daughter and her wife each have about 11 tattoos. My youngesthas 2 and plans for many more. I think men with tattoos are Hawt! I guess you could say I really live tattoos.
    Thank you for the opportunity.
    Hugs,
    Niki

    • KC Burn says:

      I, too, love men with tattoos 🙂 I keep saying I should get more, myself, but the stars have not yet aligned!

  9. Wendy H says:

    Hi KC! I love the cover and I guess you could say I love tattoos, my hubby has both sleves done and one on his face as well as two on his neck. Yeah, I think it is safe to say I am a fan 😉 I can’t wait to see the rest of that iceberg! wendynjason04 at gmail dot com

    • KC Burn says:

      OMG, Wendy, I ADORE the full sleeves. My hubby doesn’t have one single tattoo, but yeah, the full sleeves are awesome.

  10. Trix says:

    Tattoos are so omnipresent in my town that sometimes I feel like a rebel for not having one! I guess it depends on the placement and image, but I usually prefer them small…I like to see skin, after all!

    • KC Burn says:

      Trix – that’s exactly what my hubby says – that he’s a rebel for not having one!
