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!
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?

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: 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.
