Hey all– it’s April, and I’m betting–wherever you are, whatever you are doing–you probably didn’t imagine your March would turn out quite the way you’d planned.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re healthy, staying sane, and escaping in all the safe ways–quiet walks (in mostly empty parks!), family game time, knitting–and, of course, our favorite, where it all began, READING!
We’ve got some new releases this month, from some old friends! I hope you all enjoy 🙂
Jaime Samms has brought us a contemporary story–with an enchanted twist in Thief in the Light–but she’s not the only one! Kim Fielding along with writing partner F.E. Feeley J.R. brings us contemporary horror in Hallelujah! and Kim all by herself brings another creepy shiver up our spine with a romantic twist in The Dance! And R.L. Merrill joins the paranormal fun with her M/F offering, Healer! I’m feeling a little left out actually! I”m the only one bringing you straight up contemporary with Shades of Henry–and I hope you love them all!
Thief in the Light
by Jaime Samms
Lucky Denver has wandering feet, sticky fingers and an unreliable moral compass—he’s never had a home and he’s not so sure he cares about what he’s missing.
Can you hear it?
Whispering in the dark.
Secrets only the dark knows.
Joseph Moore, choir director for the First Baptist Church of Lenora, Nebraska, has secrets of his own. Terrible, lonely secrets. One that involves natural human desire. One that calls forth powers he cannot begin to understand. Both with the potential to destroy him and those he loves.
Now the world is changing. The darkness, the shadows, the ghosts, are closing in—and Joseph and his lover, Kevin, are being stalked by a merciless demon, hell-bent on possession.
Can you hear it now?
There in the dark.
It’s whispering your name.

One bootstrap act of integrity cost Henry Worrall everything—military career, family, and the secret boyfriend who kept Henry trapped for eleven years. Desperate, Henry shows up on his brother’s doorstep and is offered a place to live and a job as a handyman in a flophouse for young porn stars.
Lance Luna’s past gave him reasons for being in porn, but as he continues his residency at a local hospital, they now feel more like excuses. He’s got the money to move out of the flophouse and live his own life—but who needs privacy when you’re taking care of a bunch of young men who think working penises make them adults?
Lance worries Henry won’t fit in, but Henry’s got a soft spot for lost young men and a way of helping them. Just as Lance and Henry find a rhythm as den mothers, a murder and the ghosts of Henry’s abusive past intrude. Lance knows Henry’s not capable of murder, but is he capable of caring for Lance’s heart?
