I am excited to welcome Elizabeth Noble to my blog today. I am so happy to be able to host her blog tour for Ringed Love. I have been in love with Sentries since the first word. I adore this world! It is so full and well-constructed! And Todd and Nick are two of my all-time favorite characters. They are absolutely amazing. These stories have drawn me in, made me laugh and cry and want to throw things. If you somehow have missed them, you need to put everything down, go buy the entire series and binge-read it, like, now. Seriously. I had the pleasure of beta-reading Ringed Love (after going on and on to her about the series! >.>) and couldn’t imagine a better end to this fantastic series. Go read the excerpt, then be sure to pick up the whole series, if you haven’t.

Hello and thank you Grace for hosting me today. The first chapter of Ringed Love is posted on Dreamspinner Press, so over the next two weeks I’ll be offering the first one hundred or so words of each subsequent chapter.
Today’s excerpt is from chapter 7
Todd stretched awake and yawned. Out of habit more than anything else, he reached down and ran his hand through Nick’s hair. There was a cool breeze wafting through the windows, and Nick’s breath was warm and soft against Todd’s chest. The air had that definite winter is coming nip to it. With all the people still filtering into Yellowknife, Todd hoped it would wait another month or two before hitting them full force. Those traveling from the southern portion of New Colorado Protectorate would especially be ill prepared and have trouble adjusting to the colder climate and mounds of snow Elk’s Ridge and the entire region often boasted.
Nick inhaled deeply and shifted one leg between Todd’s thighs. Right now Todd had other—more personal and pressing—matters to think about besides when the full force of winter might or might not hit. Trickling only the very tips of his fingers up and down Nick’s spine a few times produced the reaction Todd was looking for. Nick quivered and moved in closer, rocking his hips gently against Todd’s thigh.
New Colorado Protectorate fell with the assassination of Chancellor Clarke. Like many others, Todd and Nick Ruger left the land of their birth and made a home to the north in Yellowknife. Their world was ever changing. The time came to say a sad farewell to some of their friends and loved ones, but they were taken in with open arms by others and in turn offered shelter to yet more. Through the years they remained steadfast in their duty as sentries to protect and defend those that needed it the most.
Time marches on but through it all they hold each other dear and cherish the love they’ve shared. There are still angry ghosts, Windigos and water spirits to contend with. Their lives change, offering them new roles. When the time comes, they do what sentries have done for generations prior and teach others the skills to carry on as sentries. The Rugers lives were rich and their hearts full with their devotion and love for each other. The tradition of the sentries lived on forever. It was the legacy of Todd and Nick Ruger. That was the way it was always meant to be.

Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into books and fanfiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.
Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess and her sidekick, tabby cat. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening and winter and summer sports (go Tribe and Cavs!) and stargazing all year long. When she’s not writing she’s working as a veterinary nurse, so don’t be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.
Elizabeth received several amateur writing awards. Since being published two of her novels have received honorable mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Her novel Jewel Cave was a runner up in the 2015 Rainbow awards in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category.
