Love to dream about travelling? Love to read hot romances that take place in cities around the world, where anything can happen on one special night? Well, if you aren’t aware of Tirgearr’s City Nights series, which is designed to scratch both of those itches, the Big City Nights Sale is the perfect introduction. Throughout the month of May, the 30-plus titles in the series are being showcased in a special sale across all of Amazon’s Kindle stores.
From today until Tuesday 15th May, my novella One Night In Brussels is part of the sale, along with the City Nights books set in Biarritz, Chicago, Barcelona, Pamplona, Daytona Beach and Cleveland. Here’s the blurb for the novella, to whet your appetite:
Saskia van Gaal works as a translator for the European Commission, dreaming of a life filled with excitement and hot sex. When she bumps into suave, sexy Englishman, Dominic May, and offers to be his tour guide in the beautiful city of Brussels, she doesn’t realise she’s about to embark on the wildest night of her life.
You can pick up One Night in Brussels at the sale price of 99p/99c from Amazon UK and Amazon US, and find out more about the sale at eBook Discovery. Click on the graphic below to go to the eBook Discovery site and enjoy some unforgettable, hot nights of fiction…
If you think of ways to read as much fiction as you want for a set subscription price, then Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited would most likely be your first choice. However, if you’re into romance fiction, then a new service might be of interest to you. Romance Book Cloud is different from Kindle in that it’s targeted at lending libraries. The ebooks can only be read online, rather than being downloaded, which means there’s almost no chance they can be pirated (which is good news for any author who’s tired of seeing their books being offered for free on nefarious websites). For the reader, it means that unlike a traditional library, you don’t have to wait until a book you’re looking for is back in stock – it’s always available to read.
Romance Book Cloud currently has around 1800 titles in its catalogue, from publishers including Wild Rose Press, Vinspire Books, Belle Books, Bold Stroke Books, and Tirgearr Publishing. Among the Tirgearr selection is the whole City Nights range, including my novella One Night In Brussels. It’s a great way to try books by authors you’ve never read before, catch up on a backlist and sample something that catches your eye.
Due to its nature, Romance Book Cloud is pretty much only available to readers who are members of a US library, but if it catches on (and there are already other branches of the service aimed at readers of YA fiction and audiobooks) it could be the start of a whole new way of enjoying fiction.
You can find out more at the Romance Book Cloud website.
With the weather at Naughty Corner Towers having been positively glacial for the past few days, my thoughts inevitably turned to ways of warming up. So here’s a cheeky one from One Night In Brussels, which is on sale till Sunday as part of Tirgearr’s birthday celebrations. And no, it’s not what you might be thinking…
When Saskia and Dominic reach the corner café, all the tables outside are occupied, even though it’s really too chilly to be sitting for long in the open air.
They find a spot inside, next to a couple of elegantly dressed middle-aged women who are clearly at the end of a shopping spree, their feet surrounded by bulging carrier bags. One of the women is examining a purchase she’s made—a milk chocolate copy of the Manneken Pis statue, similar to those Saskia noticed in a
window back on Zuidstraat.
A waitress in a black waistcoat and skirt over a white blouse, her blond hair scraped back in a tight ponytail, comes to take their order.
“Cappuccino for me,” Dominic tells her. “How about you, Saskia?”
“I’d love a hot chocolate.”
“With cream?” the waitress asks, scribbling a note on her pad.
I shouldn’t, but why not? It’s not the naughtiest thing I’ve done today—or might do later…
Saskia doesn’t know where the thought has come from, only that she’s aware of a subtle tension between herself and Dominic, heightened every time she glances into those expressive dark eyes of his.
To find out how things heat up once Saskia and Dominic leave the café, pick up a copy of One Night In Brussels from 99 cents from Amazon US or 99p from Amazon UK.
Yes, Tirgearr is celebrating another year of bringing readers the best in romance, mystery, sci-fi and so much more, and just like last year they’re celebrating in style. From today until Sunday there’s a huge sale at Amazon with lots of Tirgearr titles on sale – take a look at the image below to see all the authors taking part.
My book from the City Nights series, One Night In Brussels, is on sale at Amazon US and Amazon UK, so take a look if you like tales of hot romance mixed in with a dash of suspense (and delicious Belgian frites…)
There’s also a Rafflecopter giveaway running between now and March 4th, where you can win a House of Tirgearryen teeshirt and three Tirgearr ebooks of your choice. You can enter at the official Tirgearr site or on the Tirgearr blog. Good luck!
If that’s not enough, you can pick up the teeshirt on sale for $15. Click on the image below to find out more and place your order. And happy birthday, Tirgearr!
All publishing houses have their own ways of promoting themselves, but how many would produce and send a teeshirt to all their authors? That’s what Tirgearr did with their Team Tirgearryan shirts, and here I am, modelling mine on the picturesque (and rather windy) Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam.

As you can probably tell, the teeshirt design is a nod to Game of Thrones, though sadly the lovely Kemberlee at Tirgearr hasn’t yet provided us all with our own dragon…
If you’d like your own House of Tirgearryen teeshirt, they’re available to buy on the Tirgearr website. And as an added bonus for lovers of the Tirgearr City Nights series (including my own One Night In Brussels), all the books are part of the Tirgearr store-wide sale at Smashwords from now until the end of July. To start shopping, click on the banner below, then use the code SSW50 at the checkout to receive your discount. Gelukkig lezen! (That’s Dutch for ‘happy reading’.)
If you’re looking to stock up on holiday reading, here’s something that will help you load up your e-reader. Tirgearr are having a sale at Smashwords throughout July, and you can get 50 per cent off all their titles. This includes the City Nights erotic romance series, so if you’re travelling to New York, Madrid, Dublin, Amsterdam, San Francisco or Barcelona, to name only a few, you can enjoy a story that’ll give you the authentic flavour of a city combined with some hot and sensual sex. Or you could try my contribution to the series, One Night in Brussels, and discover there’s more to Belgium than an under-achieving football team. (Too soon?)
