Barbara Elsborg on Falling and More? ~ Guest Blog, Local Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance would like to thank Barbara Elsborg for taking the time to talk with us today.


Title: Falling
Author: Barbara Elsborg
Publisher: Samhain
Publication Date: 03/24/2015
Genre/Sub-Genre: Contemporary, M/M Romance


Harper is no longer behind bars, but it doesn’t feel like it. Ten years serving time for a crime he didn’t commit have left him shut down, numb, and a frozen wreck over the simplest of choices.
He’s acutely aware of the dark-haired young man checking him out in the supermarket, but he’s too deep in panic mode to even meet the guy’s gaze. Afraid the slightest move will trigger a fall that will never stop.
Fresh off a long-term relationship with a controlling man, Malachi is stuck living with relatives who think he’s a waste of oxygen. The tall guy in the long, gray coat is the first bright spot he’s glimpsed in a long time…though the man’s unblinking stare at a bottle of shower gel is a touch alarming.
Hard experience tells both of them to turn away before lust turns to hopeless attraction, and inevitably to disaster. But once their sparks connect, the arc of electricity is too strong to deny. Even if the cost is too much to bear.

Prism recently reviewed Falling . You can find the review here.

More or not?:

One question I’m often asked is – are you going to write another book about these guys? Or a book about (Insert name of minor character)? The answer to the first will almost certainly be no, although I have occasionally brought characters back to play minor roles in new stories. I have sometimes given a minor character a book of his own but I’ve never done it with my MM books, until Falling. And I must have caught the bug because I’ve done the same with A Matter of Time which comes out in April and features a character from Bloodline.

When I introduced Conrad into Falling I fell for him. How apt that title turned out to be! I thought about making the book an MMM but knew Conrad was too alpha to share Malachi. The more I wrote about Conrad’s relationship with Malachi, the more I understood that this guy needed a book of his own. So I wrote Breaking which comes out in July and features for the first time for me – two alpha males. It was a challenge to write!

In Falling, Malachi is definitely NOT an alpha male. He’s sweet and loving and funny and wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s the balance to Harper who’s dark and silent and mistrustful. Who wouldn’t be if they’d spent years in prison for something they didn’t do.

There won’t be another book about Malachi and Harper – though Malachi makes an appearance in Breaking. By the end of Falling and against the odds, the two heroes are happy. I’m not cruel enough to break them apart.

About the Author:

Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide. (Try saying that fast)

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop. Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, sometimes two bad boys for each quirky heroine, and more recently two bad boys all on their own. She hopes her stories are as much fun to read as they are to write.

You can find out more about Barbara and her books at, catch more of her scintillating wit at her blog on the same site, and if you want to tell her how much you love her books, please, email her!

  1. I <3 Barbara and have never been disappointed in anything I have read from her. I know that I will get to experience a wonderful heartfelt book with love, humor and some (ok.. a lot of) great sex.

  2. I haven’t read any of Barbara’s books yet, but this one sounds really tempting. I’ve already added it to my TBR list.

  3. Love hearing about what the thought process was when writing the book. Luckily it means another book for us!

  4. Thank you for sharing a bit about your writing adventures(?)/ though process. It’s always fun to revisit a character even if it’s minor. Thank you for the contest.

  5. Always nice to learn a bit more about the characters of a book. I like the blurb of this one. Thanks for the giveway and please count me in.

  6. I’m buying Falling…It sounds wonderful and the reviews are great.
    I’d love a chance to win a book from the backlist, 🙂

  7. Ooh, a spin-off of Bloodline? So excited! Jumping In Puddles is currently on my wishlist after reading Bloodline. I love that world!

  8. Two men that are strangers that need each other so they can heal each other to find what love is really all about. I love to read books like this. They make me feel like there is still good people in the book world and gives me hope for real life.

  9. I am happy that characters that feature in your books make appearances or have stories of their own. I just sort of wish there was another character you could connect to Cowboys Down’s Jasper & Calum in some way, in the future perhaps (very subtle hint 🙂 )? I think you through enough angst at your characters to make your readers happy, as the characters need problems to help them evolve and strengthen in their relationship. Plus love your book covers.

    Thank you for the giveaway chance
