I asked to all the authors joining the UK GLBTQ Fiction meet in Manchester in July (http://ukglbtfictionmeet.co.uk/2013-event/2013-attendees/spotlight_authors-2/) a personal favor, a special Ebook Giveaway: twice a week I will post 1 book from each author, and among those who will leave a comment, I will draw a winner. Very easy and very fast ;-) I will send a PM to the winner, so remember to not leave anonymous comments!

And the ebook giveaway goes to: evila_elf

Today author is Kay Berrisford: Kay used to be a historian and press officer. Then she realized making stuff up and adding magic and sex was even more exciting than the “day job.” She is author of the m/m fantasy “Greenwood” series – Lord of the Forest, Bound for the Forest, Bound to the Beast, and Locking Horns, and two contemporary paranormals, Catching Kit, and Simon, Sex, and the Solstice Stone.
She lives in Southampton, Hampshire, UK, with her beloved “other half.”

Lord of the Forest (The Greenwood) by Kay Berrisford
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (April 9, 2013)
Amazon Kindle: Lord of the Forest (The Greenwood)

England, 1217. Dark forces are rising. In the Greenwood, foul spirits grow powerful, and greedy barons plunder the lands. Only one man dares fight back--Robin Hood.

Robin's band of brothers is broken. Now a lone warrior, he denies his famous name and laments the friends and lovers he's lost. When the fair folk capture Cal, a beautiful young forester descended from the Greenwood's ancient protectors, Robin rescues him and forges a new alliance.

Despite a sizzling attraction, Robin senses Cal isn't like his old comrades, and he's right. Cal's been raised as a royal spy. He plans to seduce and betray Robin, but can't harm the man he's falling hard for. Mistrust and arguments spill into passionate lovemaking, as Cal learns the meaning of loyalty, fighting beside Robin, the only friend he's ever known. Even the enchanted forest seeks to bind Robin and the returned protector ever tighter.

Their connection will be tested by nature's wildest forces, Robin's past, Cal's lies, and in a baron's darkest dungeon. To survive, Robin and Cal must admit their love and embrace their true destinies. Only then can they save England and each other--and win their happiness ever after.
