As part of their 10th anniversary celebration, LGBT specialty publisher Dreamspinner Press is holding a giveaway promotion for selected m/m romance titles throughout May 30th and 31st.

Each title is free for only 1 hour. The current (and final) title is:

Ghosts in the Wind by Marguerite Labbe, a paranormal suspense with strong m/m romantic elements (this is part of their Bittersweet Dreams line which explores love stories but does not have a traditional HEA), starring a man who sees ghosts, including that of his murdered lover who was killed while performing a good deed for a stranger, and who haunts him in order to help track down the culprit and the missing children he kidnapped @ the publisher’s webstore

Andrei Cuza and Dean Marshall celebrated their tenth anniversary only to have their happiness shattered by a random, insane event: On his way home from closing a business deal, Dean stops on the parkway to help a young mother with her flat tire, and her ex arrives, murders them, and takes off with his two kids.

Ghosts have haunted Andrei all his life. He bears the guilt for his sister being stuck in limbo, because ghosts are frozen at the moment they died, unable to adapt to the changes in their living loved ones. When Dean returns to Andrei as a ghost, the double punch of losing him and having to watch him founder if he doesn’t move on is almost more than Andrei can bear.

Despite dangers in limbo—Jackal Wraiths that devour souls are hunting him—Dean isn’t going anywhere until he helps Andrei track down the missing children. Andrei is in danger as well when he pays dearly to feel Dean’s touch one last time. Time is slowly running out as Dean and Andrei try to say good-bye while they track a killer who’s more than happy to kill again.
