Are You Ready To Go Hard ‘N Deep With Vona Logan? I Hope So, Because There’s A Giveaway

The Men of Hard ‘n Deep

Most of you met Aidan and Matt on the cliff in Queenstown, New Zealand in Rock Hard. First intended as a short story, I was amazed at the response to these characters and overwhelmed with requests for more. As this was my first attempt at being published, Rock Hard had been quite short, so I understood where these readers were coming from for more of the sexy men after the way it ended.

I felt sad to walk away from the story and immediately jumped on board for a sequel. The two men had just met and started a relationship, so there was more than enough room to write their story after the end of Rock Hard.

It is no mystery that relationships have their fair share of hiccups and shadows from different corners threatening the bliss of newfound love. Matt *sigh* is my baby and he’s got a very soft spot in my heart. He is also an adrenaline junkie – brave, fearless and determined when it comes to his career. Emotionally however, Matt has fears and insecurities always waiting to ambush and rob him of the things he desires most – in this case Aidan.

Aidan is the rock in Matt’s life and in these two books – solid, steadfast, secure and completely in love with Matt. His only frustration is getting the stubborn Matt to let go and trust in what they have. At times Aidan has his sizeable hands full (in more ways than one) of Matt, the spitfire. Matt’s fear forces him to run from hurt, but Aidan is adamant to make him stay.

Combine the shadows and insecurities with Matt’s fierce temper and a road trip on an amazingly hot motorbike, The Can-Am Spyder RSS, and you have an explosive encounter bound to tie these guys together or split them apart forever.

Blurb:

The past threatens to tear Aidan and Matt apart, but when Matt takes off, Aidan will stop at nothing to bring him back.

Aidan and Matt had conquered the mountain which almost killed them both and their relationship is secure. Or is it? Without warning the past inevitably rears its ugly head and the sparks begin to fly. While Aidan knows exactly what he wants, Matt’s fierce independence and insecurities threaten to tear them apart. Aidan sets out to prove to Matt he isn’t going anywhere and Matt needs to face and conquer the ghosts from his past. Does Aidan have what it takes to hold onto his man and will Matt allow himself to be loved?

Thank you for visiting today to read all about my new book. For those of you who read it, I sincerely hope it made the wait for a sequel so worth it.

Bye For Now,
Vona

Tats of Honor by Vona Logan Is A Journey Through Grief And Healing

My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story. ― Johnny Depp

Keegan Andrews’ life has just turned the corner from bad to how-much-more-can-a-man-take? He’s just buried the cousin who was like a brother to him; then, to add insult to an already weeping wound, his long-time girlfriend has ditched him at the airport to go and be with another man.

Determined to make the most of the trip to New Zealand he’d planned on sharing with Helen, Keegan becomes a tourist in a country that is supposed to be nothing more than a short detour in a life he no longer recognizes. Meeting Dominic Lewis wasn’t on Keegan’s holiday itinerary, and the paths of their lives cross at a time when neither was looking to further complicate an already complicated state of various affairs. But sometimes fate has a terrible sense of timing, and destiny cares not one bit for even the best laid plans of men.

Tats of Honor is the story of a man who wears his love on his sleeve—or rather as a sleeve of tattoos that tell his soul-deep tale of hope and heartbreak. This is a story of death and grief and second chances at life for two men who find each other when they didn’t even realize they were looking for someone to find; let alone, for Keegan, finding an undeniable attraction to and a connection with another man.

There are some things I wish had been more thoroughly explored in this book, specifically in the development of the relationship between Keegan and Dominic. These two strangers evolved from acquaintances to lovers in a very deliberately told rather than shown way, and, right or wrong, for better or for worse, I’m a feeler who needs to be led by my heart rather than my brain in order to fully buy into a romance. Tricky that, yes? But, simply put, there was a missed connection in this story that left me more a maneuvered observer in the buildup of the relationship than an invested participant in seeing why these two men should fall in love with each other.

Having said that, though, there were some very lovely things about the book, too, in the author’s obvious affection for her emotionally conflicted and afflicted characters, as well as for the landscapes of the country in which they found each other, and the healing that came from the connection they’d nearly lost but managed to save through their want and need of each other.
