Rhys Ford on Sloe Ride (Sinners Series Book Four) and Shot Glass Sin Part 4~ Blog Tour, Excerpt, Guest Blog, Local Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Rhys Ford for stopping by today.


Title: Sloe Ride (Sinners Series Book Four)
Author: Rhys Ford
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Reece Notley
Genre: Contemporary, Drama, Fiction, Gay, Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, Mystery


It isn’t easy being a Morgan. Especially when dead bodies start piling up and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.

Quinn Morgan never quite fit into the family mold. He dreamed of a life with books instead of badges and knowledge instead of law—and a life with Rafe Andrade, his older brothers’ bad boy friend and the man who broke his very young heart.

Rafe Andrade returned home to lick his wounds following his ejection from the band he helped form. A recovering drug addict, Rafe spends his time wallowing in guilt, until he finds himself faced with his original addiction, Quinn Morgan—the reason he fled the city in the first place.

When Rafe hears the Sinners are looking for a bassist, it’s a chance to redeem himself, but as a crazed murderer draws closer to Quinn, Rafe’s willing to sacrifice everything—including himself—to keep his quixotic Morgan safe and sound.

Shot Glass Sin Blog Tour with Rhys Ford

Sloe Ride.

Actually it’s been more of a long ride. Three years, three books, one novella and a lot of short stories and we’ve come to the point where Quinn gets his story. And we get to really meet Rafe. This is definitely a shift in the band’s story, a lot more Morgan and well, there’s Quinn, the family’s off-black sheep. It was a challenge a joy to write Quinn and Rafe. And I hope you enjoy it.

We’ve got two more outings in the Sinners series after Sloe Ride but this book kind of pulls a lot of things together. Enough so we can go forward to a few other things. And I hope you enjoy the ride.
This blog tour captures a few scenes along the band’s journey from Damien and Miki to the start of Sloe Ride. It’s called Shot Glass Sin and I’m hoping you enjoy this too. Visit each blog stop to get the next part of the story and when it’s all done, I’ll post the entire thing in a PDF.

Shot Glass Sin

4 — After Whiskey and Wry

For all of his prettiness, Miki was far from delicate. Still, Kane edged up to him carefully, moving the beans to the counter then nudging in between Miki’s legs. He brushed away a piece of hair from Miki’s troubled hazel eyes, sighing when Miki instinctively flinched when Kane drew near.

If the men who’d taught Miki to flinch wasn’t already dead, Kane would eagerly set his badge aside and beat them to a pulp. His lover’s soft muttered sorry humbled Kane and he tucked his finger under Miki’s chin, lifting his head up until he could see Miki’s face.

“Mick love, I’m going to asking you something and I don’t want you to get mad at me for asking.” The look he got from his lover was one of Miki’s best snarls. Kane kissed the corner of Miki’s mouth, teasing out a smile. “Don’t growl at me. Just listen.”

“I don’t growl.” Miki tugged at Kane’s collar, stretching his t-shirt. “Talk.”

Kane wasn’t going to point out the obvious rumbling purr beneath Miki’s words. He was tempted but his lover was kissing the edge of something dark and the last thing he wanted was for Miki to go over.

“Are you going to be in this band of Damien’s because you want to or because Damie wants you to be?” Kane pried Miki’s fingers from his shirt, kissing his lover’s knuckles once he got them free. “What do you want?”

“I want the music,” Miki admitted. “I just… fuck.”

“Now, you talk to me, love.” Kane pressed in, sliding his hands up Miki’s strong thighs. “What’s the fuck for? What’s got you tied up in knots if it isn’t the music or the stage?”

“I don’t even care if we suck…” The husky velvet of Miki’s voice broke, crumbling into hard thin threads. “So fucking stupid. There’s just so much shit in this. You’re here. Home. I have a fucking home and D wants to go out gallivanting around. Then there’s who the hell else are we going to bring in?”

“Not stupid,” Kane reassured him. “All things considered, very normal. And yes, I’ll be here. Hell, I might even follow you. I could be your groupie.”

“Groupies are crap. Trust me,” he snorted. “D was big on them back then. Now, probably not so much with Sionn. He’d rather have Sionn on the phone than someone disposable in his bed. Got no worries on that one.”

“What about you? Phone calls good enough?” He said it to tease but the stricken look Miki gave him cut Kane down deep. “I wasn’t serious, Mick love. It was just a joke.”

“Not funny, asshole.” Miki shook his head, pulling back when Kane leaned in for a kiss. “Seriously. Not fucking funny.”

Relationships were hard for Miki. Kane often forgot that. When raised in the boisterous sprawl of a large, affectionate family, it was hard to step back and see the world through Miki’s eyes. It was a rosier view than when Kane first met him but there were still lingering wounds beneath the surface, often rising up when Kane least expected it.

“I never for once believed you’d take someone else to your bed, love. That’s not you.” Kane got his kiss this time, a simmering hot splash of Miki on his tongue. “And being unsure about new people is normal. I’d be.”

“That’s the big thing, you know?” Miki sighed and leaned his head on Kane’s shoulder. “Because it was so fucking magical before. And I want it to be magic again.”

Oh! And a GIVEAWAY! But not just any giveaway, because it’s time for a new tour shirt.
Because the guys are going on tour… in Absinthe of Malice, a Sinners novella set to be released in 2016. And they’re going to need clubs or bars to go to. ONE WINNER at each blog stop will name one of the places the band plays at on their tour. Nothing profane or lewd (These ARE going on the back of a t-shirt) but pretty much anything goes.

  1. Can’t wait to read this it looks like another fantastic read. Awesome series! Congratulations on the New publication! 😀

  2. well, Rhys, guess that’s your clue to make it magical, because if you don’t you’ll have an unhappy Miki which will lead to unhappy D & Kane which leads to unhappy Sion & rest of the Morgan family and lots of unhappy readers to boot 😉

  3. I think they need to tour in Australia…we have some awesome names
    A suburb less than 20 minutes from me is called Wattanobbi, there really is a place called Woop Woop and I’m sure I could come up with a whole load of fun place names 😉

  4. Are one of the last two books really going to include a tour? Cause I kind of want to see how the guys and the Morgan boys handle being away from each other. (Better have unlimited cell phone minutes) 🙂 And I’d love to see Kane be a “groupie,” LOL 😉
