From the Ashes with Daisy Harris

I’d like to welcome Daisy Harris with her new release, From the Ashes. I enjoy both writing and reading mm romances, and this one grabbed my attention. It was the cover first, then when I read the blurb, I was truly hooked. Check it out and don’t forget to enter Daisy’s contest while you’re here.


From the Ashes by Daisy Harris

From the AshesBLURB:

When an accident burns down Jesse’s apartment, he’s left broke and homeless, with a giant dog and a college schedule he can’t afford to maintain. And no family who’s willing to take him in.

Lucky for him, a sexy fireman offers him a place to stay. The drawback? The fireman’s big Latino family lives next door, and they don’t know their son is gay.

Tomas’s parents made their way in America with hard work and by accepting help when it was offered, so he won’t let Jesse drop out of school just so he can afford a place to live. Besides, Jesse’s the perfect roommate—funny, sweet and breathtakingly cute. He climbs into Tomas’s bed and tugs at his heart. Until Jesse starts pushing for more.

Their passion enflames their bodies but threatens to crush Tomas’s family. Tomas is willing to fight for Jesse, but after losing everything, Jesse isn’t sure he can bear to risk his one remaining possession—his heart.

Warning: Contains an angry older brother, judgmental best friends, a slobbering bull mastiff, and enough red-hot gay loving to make a porn star blush.

Read an Excerpt

“You take the bed.” Tomas stroked the top of Jesse’s foot. The connection of skin made him shiver. “I got it last night.” He wanted to kiss Jesse’s cheek. So he did. Then he got up and did the dishes.

Jesse gave him a small but cheeky wink. “You’re only giving me the bed because the sheets are gross.”

Tomas laughed. He’d forgotten about that. “I’ll put some new ones on for you, fancy boy.”

“I can do it.” Jesse went to the closet for fresh sheets, but folded out the loveseat to make that bed first. The scene felt warm and homey, the way Tomas felt with Jesse every night.

“Jess—” Tomas started.

Jesse cut him off. “Y’know…” He looked up, holding a pillow half-stuffed into a pillowcase. His hazel eyes were honest and open. “You don’t have to be perfect.”

Tomas’s chest hurt, as if Jesse had shot him straight through. His heart was bleeding, but that was okay, because it bled for the skinny, pretty boy standing in the middle of his living room. “Jess—”

“You don’t have to be perfect.” Jesse shook his head. He swallowed hard, but then smiled. “I still like you.”

“Fuck, Jess.” Tomas blinked back tears. He couldn’t tell if he was happy or sad, only that Jesse had every part of him. “I like you so much.”

Jesse nodded. He smiled down at what he was doing and finished stuffing the pillowcase. “I know.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy HarrisDaisy Harris still isn’t sure if she writes erotica. Her romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris’s dismay the sex tends to get completely out of hand.

She writes about fantastical creatures and about young men getting their freak on, and she’s never missed an episode of The Walking Dead.

    So guys—how do you feel about dogs in romance? Love em, hate em? Prefer cats?

    (I don’t really see too many cats in romance. Or maybe I just haven’t noticed them.)

    Can’t wait to see what y’all say!


  5. An excellent giveaway! Thank you very much :)

  6. Thanks for visiting today. You’re a new author for me and I love finding new authors.

    I like animals in romance dogs, cats, rabbits, dust bunnies and shifters. It’s all good.

  7. Hey Mary—I think I wrote a talking Bunny once in a paranormal. It was so long ago I’d forgotten!

  8. Sounds interesting

  9. Welcome, Daisy!

    I love the idea of pets in romances. I’m not bothered what sort of pet. I love Stephanie Plum’s hamster, although it doesn’t do much except eat :)

  10. I like dogs in romance, they add humor or can be a catalyst.
