Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ve been sharing from my latest release Death by Starlight, an m/m urban fantasy. I’ve got a few more scenes to go until I reach the end of the current chapter, then it’s on to the new shiny thing! Which is very, very shiny. But I promise I won’t leave you hanging, at least not too much. Dark elf Zeke and Alistair the shaman have succeeded in luring Mellosa, a rather large and intimidating mermaid, to Alistair’s boat.
Mellosa pulled herself higher out of the water, exposing small, flat breasts much better for streaking aerodynamically through the water than the romanticized versions of myth. The boat rocked, dipping at an alarming angle. If she wanted to, she could have them both in the water in a flash. Mindful of this, Zeke cast a warming cloak around himself and Alistair.
“Who’s the elf?” Mellosa demanded. “He made this?” She lofted the blue agate accusingly.
“Just a friend of a friend who owed me a favor. I needed to talk to you and didn’t know how else to go about it. Mellosa, I’ve loved you for half a century.”
Edge of Night 2: Death by Starlight
In Betwixt and Between, Ian and Zeke fought a battle against the queen of the dark realm in order to be together. Now, when they think they might settle into as normal a life as elves living among humans might be able to expect, a new enemy threatens to tear them apart. While Zeke helps the shaman Alistair in his hunt for an elusive mermaid, Ian is called to confront a wicked nymph preying on tourists along Seattle’s waterfront. Zeke and Ian soon discover that the defeated Queen Ysolde has spread her evil into the sea realms, and danger lurks beneath every wave, but it is too late to stop an escalating series of confrontations that lead to disappearances, death and the possible end of light in this world.
As Ysolde plots revenge and a mysterious prince seeks to win Ian for himself, the ancient war between light and dark sweeps Ian and Zeke into its maelstrom of hate, testing their trust of each other to the utmost.
“I love this author’s imagination and skill, from the magical, emotional, and erotic nuances of the romantic pair, the details of the underground world of the svarta, the remote and glacial world of the liosa, and the characters that support or thwart them. Highly recommended!” ~ Velvet Panic
