Blog Tour + Giveaway: Long Shadows by Kate Sherwood @kate_sherwood #MM

longshadows_tourbannerAbout Long Shadows

LA cop Jericho Crewe got the hell out of Mosely, Montana, when he was seventeen. Fifteen years later, he’s back, and everything is just as messed up as when he left. He planned a quick visit to deal with his injured father, but of course things are never that simple. Family complications, police complications, social complications—and, as always, Wade Granger complications.

Jericho and Wade had been so close, once upon a time. First friends, then more than friends—and then, after Jericho’s escape, nothing. Wade’s magnetism hasn’t been lessened by a decade and a half apart; even when Jericho learns that Wade is the prime suspect in the death of Jericho’s father, the old connection still sparks.

When Jericho’s newly discovered half siblings are kidnapped, he needs to trust someone to help him find them. Wade’s a terrible choice, but Jericho’s never been known for his good judgment. Anyway, he’d rather make a bad decision with Wade than a good one with anybody else.

About Kate Sherwood

Kate Sherwood started writing about the same time she got back on a horse after almost twenty years away from riding. She’d like to think she was too young for it to be a midlife crisis, but apparently she was ready for some changes!

Kate grew up near Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and went to school in Montreal, then Vancouver. But for the last decade or so she’s been a country girl. Sure, she misses some of the conveniences of the city, but living close to nature makes up for those lacks. She’s living in Ontario’s “cottage country”–other people save up their time and come to spend their vacations in her neighborhood, but she gets to live there all year round!

Since her first book was published in 2010, she’s kept herself busy with novels, novellas, and short stories in almost all the sub-genres of m/m romance. Contemporary, suspense, scifi or fantasy–the settings are just the backdrop for her characters to answer the important questions. How much can they share, and what do they need to keep? Can they bring themselves to trust someone, after being disappointed so many times? Are they brave enough to take a chance on love?

Kate’s books balance drama with humor, angst with optimism. They feature strong, damaged men who fight themselves harder than they fight anyone else. And, wherever possible, there are animals: horses, dogs, cats ferrets, squirrels… sometimes it’s easier to bond with a non-human, and most of Kate’s men need all the help they can get.

After five years of writing, Kate is still learning, still stretching herself, and still enjoying what she does. She’s looking forward to sharing a lot more stories in the future.

    I wonder what was the reason of Jericho’s escape & why he hasn’t had the chance to tell it to Wade. I’m also curious of the significance of the title to the story. *taps chin*

    Thanks for coming by to The Dark Arts MM Erotica. =)

    Kate Sherwood is a must buy author for me. The question is: does each book end in cliffhanger? This will decide whether I binge read or read one every time a title comes out.



  8. katesherwood793 January 3, 2017 / 6:51 am

    Hi, guys – thanks for the interest!

    Theo, the story is kinda structured like a TV series, with a suspense/action plot that gets resolved in each book, but relationship arcs that take the full series to resolve. So not exactly cliff hangers, but not a romantic HEA (or even HFN) for each book.

    I really liked the structure when I was writing, but it’s not quite standard for romance-land…

    Congrats on the new release Kate. This book sounds so good. It is on my TBR list.


  11. Nat January 4, 2017 / 6:30 am

    I really need to read more MM!!


  12. cyntia January 4, 2017 / 6:52 am

    I’m all for non-standard romances, so a romance/relationship throughout the whole series is better for me than each book with a different couple in it.


  13. Purple Reader January 6, 2017 / 12:56 am

    Congrats and thanks for the giveaway. I love gay mysteries and romance, and this one sounds like an intriguing plot with interesting characters. A definite tbr.
