Cover Reveal & Giveaway: ALPHA BARMAN by Sue Brown

Sue Brown - Alpha Barman

Release Date: November 24, 2016


Jake Tyler walked out of Special Ops two years ago, a devastated, broken man after he discovered his sister brutally murdered by her husband, Riley. Since then he's found a kind of peace running a rural bar. The last thing Jake Tyler expects is his former team to turn up with grim news. Jake's ex-brother-in-law has escaped from prison and is heading Jake's way. The team is here to protect Jake, whether he likes it or not - a decision reluctantly shared by their leader, Jake's ex-lover Mitch Mitchelson.

Mitch is angry and hurting. The man he trusted - the man he adored more than anything - abandoned both his team and Mitch. Jake never gave Mitch a chance to help or come to terms with his desertion. Regardless of mission protocols, Mitch isn't about to open his heart again to that kind of pain.

But the strong attraction between them can't be denied. How are they ever going to work together when Mitch still resents Jake's disappearance, and to Jake, the team represents everything that destroyed him in the first place? And meantime they wait for Riley to find them... and to settle the threat once and for all.

Will a centuries-old broken heart ruin the promise of new love?

Dominic Ashworth is descended from a long line of witches, although the family practice of witchcraft died out generations ago. Forever connected to a dark history, the house he grew up in remained in the Ashworth family for generations until his estranged father sold it.

On a mission to check out the new owners, Dominic runs into Caleb Jones and gives the gorgeous man his phone number-but getting a date should be the last thing on Dominic's agenda.

Caleb and his best friend, Zach Briceworth, are oblivious to the heartache and magic tied to the foundations of their new home. When strange things start to happen, the truth emerges and surprises them both, especially as everything revolves around Caleb's new love interest.

After a shaky start, Caleb and Dominic settle into an easy relationship, falling faster than either of them expected. But with Halloween approaching, the possibility of danger increases. The past is not always as it seems, and the ripples of a tragic event threaten to put an end to everything between them.

Carra's Review

All Hallow’s Eve is a perfect read for the Halloween season to really get you in the mood, but can be enjoyed any other time as well.  It has a great story that goes back generations filled with witches, spells and a banished soul, and all of that coming to the forefront in the present day with all manner of creepiness and unearthly incidents occurring around the main characters.  You know the story has to be good when the spooky parts have you wanting another person in the house with you and the lights on until you’re definitely sound asleep.  I’m also a bit wary of my mirror now, too.  But even with that, my heart still broke for Alexander and Liam—and they’re not even the main characters of the story—while at the same time hoping things between Dominic and Caleb would work out.

Dominic is a true believer in his family’s history, and is determined to make sure his ancestor’s wrath doesn’t break through in the present.  He meets Caleb who has moved into Dominic’s former family home with his best friend Zach, and they become close-though with the shadow of danger lurking and Caleb not knowing Dominic’s true connection to it all, some angst and drama are injected into the story as well.  I did like the two of them together, though I would have liked to see more of them getting to know each other outside of the physical aspect of their relationship so I could feel more attached to them as a couple.  Though that physical aspect did make for some sexy reading ;-)

The story has a solid family history background that makes a great backdrop for all the phenomena that start occurring, and I actually found myself a bit more intrigued by that aspect of the tale then by Caleb and Dominic’s relationship…though not by much more.  There’s plenty of suspense buildup throughout the story, which made the final confrontation scene that much more exciting and its resolution very satisfying-particularly at the very end during the epilogue.

I really liked this story, and I can see myself reading it every year during Halloween time to really get me in the spirit of the season.  All Hallow’s Eve was a solid 4-star read for me, and I’d recommend this story to M/M paranormal romance fans 18+ for adult language and M/M sexual content.

Length: 50,000 words


Falling for his best friend's sister seemed like a good idea at the time.

Defenceman Ryan Flynn's life and career is defined by the codes of hockey; friendship, respect, leadership and protection. A call from his best friends sister ends up with him taking her home and it's all he can do to remember that she's off limits. Doesn't matter that she's too much of temptation for a man on the edge, he promised her brother he wouldn't go anywhere near her.

Kathryn Lecour has been in lust with hockey player Ryan Flynn since she was first laid eyes on him. The problem? Ryan is her brother's best friend, bound by a complicated code of chivalry both on and off the ice.

Will Ryan, the hard man of the Dragons ever see her as anything more than his best friend's little sister? And will Kat be able to tame the Dragon with ice in his heart?


“You have to promise,” Loki had said to him.

They were nineteen years old and drunk on cheap beer. Kat’s prom date vanished into the darkness, and that was a good thing: the baseball captain and high achiever wasn’t good enough for her.

Not in her brother’s eyes, and not in his.

“Promise what?” Ryan had been worried that what he and Loki had done made Kat’s date leave and left her in tears. They’d only meant to intimidate him to playing nice, not get him to run away with his tail between his legs.

“Don’t ever let her near a jock,” Loki snapped. He didn’t appear to have any remorse at seeing the guy run, but then, he hadn’t seen his sister’s tears. “No one like us. Because all we are is hockey, and all we do is for the team.”

“I promise.”

“We f*ck and leave, and nothing means anything.”


“Don’t you ever let anyone hurt her.”

“I won’t. I promise.”

The smile slipped from his face when the enormity of what he’d promised sunk into his soul, and for a second he hesitated. He had to go in there and be her brother, be the friend she’d need. Not the idiot man who fancied himself in love with her.

He settled his breathing. And then he opened the door, slipped inside, and shut it behind him before he could second-guess why he was here.

The room was simple: sofas, a coffee table in the middle, a large roof window that would let in light in the daytime. At the moment, the room was lit by a soft lamp in the corner.

Sitting bolt upright in one corner of the largest sofa was Kat.
Ryan took one look at her face and couldn’t help himself; a curse fell from his lips without conscious thought. A vivid scarlet mark ran from her eye socket to her cheekbone, as if someone had deliberately slapped her; bruises ringed her neck and her lip was cut, evidenced by a butterfly bandage just below the left corner. She was so beautiful, and he couldn’t bear to see the marks on her soft skin.

She looked up at him, her green eyes bright. He stepped closer and she stared at him. Her lower lip trembled as though she was fighting tears; he wanted to hold her and stop her from crying.

God, all I want is to hold her.

“Take me home, Ryan,” she said, her voice broken. Then she added a much smaller, quieter “Please.”
