Site Update

I’ve added a new page to our site: Free Reads! We can scarcely believe we’ve been at this long enough for any of our contracts to expire, but “Steam Heat” ran out recently. We decided to offer it as a free read, so it’s now available to download for free at either Torquere Press or All Romance Ebooks.

If you haven’t checked it out before, “Steam Heat” is a (very) short story in which we indulged our love of conventions, costuming, and Steampunk. We hope you enjoy it!

Cinnamon and Seduction is here!


After the success of his two Gourmet Network specials, outspoken Executive Chef Stephen Pierce is offered a sweetheart deal for his own regular show. Everyone believes Stephen has a lot of self-confidence, but he is aware of his own shortcomings and refuses to sign on unless his loyal PA, Robert Logan, agrees to stay with him. Stephen knows Robert is the one person who can keep him in line, but Stephen has always hidden his more personal interest, fearing that if he knew, Robert would be disgusted and leave him.

Robert has been in love with his boss for almost six years, but he’s begun to believe Stephen will never see him as more than an efficient assistant. Resigning himself to never having the man he truly wants, Robert begins to date other men, hoping that one of them will strike the same sparks for him that Stephen does without even knowing it.

Can the efforts of their friends finally get Stephen and Robert together, or will Stephen’s hidden insecurities keep them apart forever?

Spooky story coming soon!

October is my favorite month, and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so for years, I wrote Halloween-themed stories for whatever fandom I was in at the time. Two years ago, I wrote up a series of drabbles about Evan St. John from Blood Bathory: The History of Horror. Last year, Ari and I wrote a short ghost story about Micah Harrison, who moves into a haunted house: A Hundred Lonely Halloweens.

This year, we’re continuing the theme! On October 2, “Ghost of a Chance” will be released by Torquere Press. It’s a ghost story complete with a spooky haunted house on a dark and stormy night and two men trapped inside overnight.

Dr. Mason Beaulieu thinks rival ghost hunter Haywood “Fort” Fortenberry is sexy but too credulous when it comes to the paranormal. Fort thinks Mason is attractive but too cynical. When they’re offered a chance to be locked up in reputedly haunted Wisteria Grove on Halloween night, however, both men jump at the chance.

Storms and mysterious sounds keep them busy during the night, and they discover a mutual respect for each other’s skills. As the investigation continues, Fort learns the truth behind Mason’s seemingly dismissive attitude, and Mason finds a new appreciation for Fort’s open-mindedness. But when an unexpected intruder derails the investigation, they learn that more than just hunting ghosts can offer them thrills and chills.

Blood Bathory giveaway!

Blood Bathory: Like the Night, a paranormal adventure novel from Torquere Press, is coming out in just a couple of weeks, and we’re giving away an autographed print copy to one lucky reader!

Evan St. John, a young fashion photographer running from the pain caused by the death of his younger sister, is thrilled when he is offered a job with House of Nadasdy, a leading fashion house in Paris. What he doesn’t know is that Elizabeth Nadasdy, the elegant and powerful owner, is not at all what she seems on the surface; she is actually a centuries-old vampire with a penchant for collecting beautiful people, and to Evan’s horror and against his will, he is turned into one of her “children”.

Unable to bear what he has become, Evan flees back to New York and to his best friend, police officer Will Trask. For years, he has nursed an unrequited love for Will, but he also knows Will is the one person who might be able to help him. As Evan and Will grow closer and deal with Evan’s condition, they are drawn into the world of the theriomorphs: shape-shifters who are guardians of life and the sworn enemies of vampires. Caught in a ancient war between two powerful supernatural forces, Evan and Will find they must choose sides — because if they are to have any chance of ever being together, they must destroy Elizabeth Nadasdy before she destroys them.

fennelandforgivenessDarius Cooper, Maitre d’ of upscale Montgomery House, isn’t entirely pleased when owner Rhys Montgomery decides to allow the Gourmet Network to use the restaurant for an episode of a reality show. But if he thought that was bad, discovering the show’s director is his former lover, Max Boyd, is nearly catastrophic. Max is the only man Dare has ever loved, and he’s spent seven years fruitlessly trying to erase Max from his mind and heart.

Max was young and immature when he and Dare were together, but now he’s a different man, and ready to settle down into the kind of relationship he wasn’t prepared for back then. He’s never found anyone else who affects him the way Dare does, and he wants Dare back in his life, but the only problem is Dare isn’t the forgiving sort. Between dealing with bridezillas and Executive Chef Stephen Pierce, Max has his hands full. Fortunately he has a ninja-Cupid in the form of Stephen’s PA Robert Logan on his side – but Max still isn’t certain if Dare will forgive him, or if he’s blown his only chance at true love after all.

New Novel: Blood Bathory!

We are proud to announce the Torquere Press has accepted our novel Blood Bathory: Like the Night for publication. We don’t have a release date yet, but we were too excited to wait to announce it!

This is a story that is very near and dear to our hearts for many reasons. It was the first novel we completed after leaving fandom writing to try our hand at getting published, yet it still has roots in the world where we honed our skills for so many years. We needed a television show fandom to use in a fanfiction story, and because we didn’t want to inadvertently stir up any drama by using a real fandom, we decided to make one up. Figuring it was in for a penny, in for a pound, we went all out on the endeavor, creating LJ communities for the “fandom”, and accounts for the “fans” who posted to the them. We even wrote fanfiction based on the non-existent show!

We did more world-building for our fictional TV show that wouldn’t even do much more than serve as a background for the main story than we had on anything we’d written prior, and we discovered that we enjoyed it and were pretty good at it. In fact, there were people who said they’d watch the show if it was real.

The original Blood Bathory was meant to be campy and cheesy, but when we decided to dust off the concept and use it as the basis for our first original m/m novel, we had to revise it heavily to make it more realistic and less cheesy. But the two lead characters and the Big Bad remained the same, and we made sure to create a solid foundation for the supernatural world they live in.

We’re very proud of the characters we’ve created and the world-building we’ve done, and we’re thrilled that our first “baby” is finally going to be published — and in print as well as ebook format!

Blood Bathory: Like the Night is the first book in a planned trilogy, and we’ve already got plots, plans, and even drafting underway for the next two books. We hope everyone will enjoy reading Blood Bathory as much as we enjoyed writing it!
