Beautiful Thunder by Louise Lyons – giveaway

August 31, 2015

Hi everyone, Louise here. I’m giving away one eBook from my backlist to one lucky winner!

You’ve all heard a little about my new release, Beautiful Thunder, on the previous two posts. Alex and Lindsey, a singer and guitarist in a struggling rock band in the 1990s, fall in love despite many obstacles, including fears of commitment, a health scare, trust issues and difficulties in the band.

What difficulties have you overcome to be with the one you love? Everyone who comments on this post to answer the question, will go into a random draw to choose one of my previous eBooks.

The books available to choose from are:-


Cover art finalisedTwo competing gangs of car and drag racing enthusiasts with a shared history of pain and rivalry leading to outright hatred. Two men from opposite sides of the tracks, yet with more in common than they’d like to admit.

Paul Appleton is a troubled man who has never been in a relationship, having lost everyone he cared for in his life. His mother died when he was very young and subsequently, he lost his brother and his best friend. Now Paul is convinced love will always end in tears.

Greg was living on the streets after his parents died and was stabbed by a junkie, ending up in hospital. The Buchanans took Greg under their wing while doing charity work, and Greg joined their loving family when he was adopted. He and his siblings are also car enthusiasts with much more money and therefore better cars than Paul Appleton’s gang.

When they eventually find a connection, Paul fights his feelings and tries to convince himself his lover is only a temporary bit of fun, but Greg has other ideas.

The Eye of the Beholder

Final cover artVince Voss is obsessed with physical beauty. Influenced by his aunt, with whom he runs a modeling business, he has become unfeeling and cruel. Vince’s mother, who was a witch in life, returns to show him a better way to live. She casts a spell to take away his good looks and he finds himself challenged with searching for someone to love him, without the use of physical attraction.

Vince eventually meets a lonely male vampire, Peter, and despite his reluctance to get involved with him, he decides to use Peter to help him lift the spell. Little does he know that at first, Peter is using him too, and he finally realizes what’s really important when he falls for Peter along the way.

Beyond The Scars

Beyond the Scars final coverAfter years of physical and mental abuse, Tommy Chadwick finally finds the strength to leave Colin, his tormentor. But Tommy soon finds that escaping his violent boyfriend was only the first step on his path to recovery. Now he must overcome feelings of worthlessness in order to rebuild his battered self-esteem.

Tommy’s lack of self-confidence prevents him from going out… at first, but then has him ricocheting from one man to another, desperately trying to please them in his search for love and acceptance.

After being rejected on New Year’s Eve, and then beaten after leaving the gay bar, he agrees to accompany his best friend, Sarah, to a martial arts club. There Tommy meets Marcus, a strong older man, who at first becomes his friend, introducing Tommy to new interests, and later, tentatively asks him on a date.

Will Marcus be the man to help Tommy put his past behind him and fall in love for real?

    Well,the biggest one for me was probably 150 miles between me & my bf…to someone it may sound not so much of a distance,but we were at the beginning of a relationship and for us it was. Two years of constantly missing each other,endless phone calls (and enormous bills), but in the end it was worth all the frustration – 7 years and we’re still going strong :)

  2. LouiseLyons13 says:

    That’s awesome, Milica, congratulations on making it to 7 years so far. Good on you for overcoming the distance :)

    Hello Louise,
    New book sounds really good.
    I had to fight with my father. He wasn’t to keen to see me with a guy from Japan. Too much of manga fan, etc

  4. LouiseLyons13 says:

    Thank you, Anna, I’m glad you like the sound of the book.

    I had the same troubles with my father. They never seem to think any man is good enough for their little girl :)

  5. Anna says:

    It’s more about him controlling my life. But I got my chance when he wanted to stay with his actual husband. ;)

  6. LouiseLyons13 says:

    Haha, awesome :)

  7. Trix says:

    I haven’t had an issue like that romantically (may it be ever thus), but I’ve had to do a lot of traveling and wrangling to stay in touch with my friends, most of whom live far away now.

  8. LouiseLyons13 says:

    Distance is always a pain, Trix. There’s 80 miles between me and my family – not far in the big scheme of things, but my parents are elderly so usually us seeing each other relies on me having the time to travel :)

    This sounds sooo good.

    Thanks so much, Laurie :) x

    Tricky question, but an age difference was the major obstacle mainly as I was worried that he would not care for me as much once he found out that I was older than he thought (as I look young for my age). But he did not care, its only about 12 years difference, but occasionally I still worry and his parents were not to happy when they found out.

    Love the concept of your new book and thank you for a chance of winning one of your back list <3

    Although I gave it my best to salvage my marriage I couldn’t handle the constant lies. You know how they say ‘don’t believe a word they say’? Well, in my case it’s ‘don’t believe a LETTER he says’. I’ve been separated for many years and the emotional trauma has taken a huge toll on me. Would I search for love once more? At my age, Hell To The NO! ‘Thank you, please’. :P

    My now husband, then boyfriend, lived across the country from each other for years. It was tough and even once we got back together, it was tough to get used to seeing each other more than once a month or two.
