A Cat’s Play is the Death of Mice

A Cat's Play is the Death of Mice

Kon Blacke

When Oliver Merritt’s parents were murdered by a strange, shadowed man in an alleyway off the foggy streets of Victorian London, he vowed to get revenge against him. In his sorrow, Oliver discovered he has magic—an energy that’s anchored to his physical self and acts as an enhanced extension of his senses, but only stays with him if he remains chaste.

With nowhere else to go, Oliver accepts an offer to live in a brothel, starting work as an exotic dancer to earn his keep. If he thought his life had been turned upside down, things become even more interesting when a scraggly, tousle-haired lad named Tom Arkwright—the son of a local constable—arrives at the brothel as part of another murder investigation.

Together they help each other with their cases, and in doing so, they realize the shadowed man who murdered Oliver’s parents—called the Skilamalink Man—is responsible for all the murders in the area. Oliver soon finds himself falling for the charming, streetwise young Tom.

Now he must choose between revenge and love. But if he chooses his heart, is it right to sacrifice his magic, when it might be the only thing that can stop the Skilamalink Man from killing again?

Battle for Atashaal

Battle for Atashaal

Arty Tekken Chronicles, Book One

Kon Blacke

Arty Tekken has a problem.

Of all the presents in all the world, Tobias’ first anniversary gift should be special. Which is why Arty is going to get him something wonderful, fabulous, even…otherworldly.

Luckily, Arty can open a wormhole and hitchhike to the ends of time and space, but what should he get?

A bumbling attempt to find the perfect present lands Arty on Atashaal, a strange planet where the Living Crystals can be found. Unfortunately, he also finds himself smack bang in the middle of a civil war.

Desperate for the secret to Arty’s abilities, aliens capture him, seeking the answers.

But Arty can no more explain this than he can the garbled voices he alone is hearing. When they start to make sense, Arty’s past begins to trickle in, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. All he wants to do now is get off Atashaal no matter what. But with his failing legs, his escape from capture is also hindered by the fact he’s swamped in the voices and the burning desire to get back to Tobias.

As Arty grows weaker, he doesn’t know if he will ever see his beloved Tobias again or whether he’ll remain stuck on Atashaal, a prisoner forever in every sense of the word…

My Saurian Friends

The Saurian Love Trilogy, Book Two

Kon Blacke

Max Bujold is a velociraptor with heart.

But because he works undercover to expose illegal activities against humans by saurians, he finds himself embroiled in the sickening underworld culture known as ikizukuri porn. This spectacle, organised by underworld bosses for saurian entertainment, puts bought humans ‘on the menu’ to be 'used' and eaten alive at the same time.

One such human, a young boy named Benjamin, steals Max’s heart at the same time as Aston, Max’s next-door neighbour, does. And all too quickly, Max discovers he not only needs to save Benjamin, but Aston as well.

Can Max, with the help of his saurian friends, prevent the unthinkable? Or will his job force him to live the rest of his days without the loves of his life?

But now, Karl’s boss, a rather attractive tyrannosaurus by the name of Benedict Tumbold, has an interesting proposal for both Karl and Sagan—a proposal that could turn Karl from an ordinary guy with no real prospects to someone special.

A hero…

Mortal Screaming

Mortal Screaming

The Legend of Hereward #2

Kon Blacke

The whisperings continue beyond the aftermath of Ealdræd’s destruction. And as the dust settles across the universe after such an event, a new, greater evil seizes the opportunity to arise. An evil that begets an evil that will threaten the world in ways the gods can’t even fathom.

As the Whispering Monks have foretold.

The whisperings also mention a boy named Wallace, rescued by Lord Knight Hereward after an unspeakable horror. That boy—destined to be the son of Hereward—has a greater purpose within the machinery of the universe as a demon slayer. But that’s just the beginning for Hereward’s son.

So the whisperings say.

The whisperings also speak of Abbot Hosho’s mortal creation, Greysen. A man who’s an outcast but far more powerful than the supplicant he currently believes he is—more so when the demon he serves releases its hold on him, for Greysen is no longer desired.

So it is that these two—Wallace and Greysen—with Lord Hereward’s sword, will reshape the world as much as any evil born ever could. Because when good has a greater purpose, everything changes. For better or for the worse? Only the Whispering Monks can say.

And they don’t whisper about that.

As new boyfriends, twenty-one-year-olds Tetsu and Rion enjoy a night out on the town together. After a few drinks, they stumble upon a sushi bar that offers a rather special dining experience.

To their surprise, they’ve arrived during an important function, and the owner of the restaurant believes Tetsu and Rion are the models he hired. As such, they soon discover the lucrative world of nantamoiri—the art of naked men being "dinner plated" so diners can enjoy eating food off them.

So begins their journey into the world of adult entertainment.

Unfortunately for Tetsu and Rion, they quickly realize they’ve also become involved with the city’s underworld; the diners who’ve paid for their services over the course of a week suddenly claim they own the boys.

Fearing for their lives, and the fact they’ll become sex slaves to these men if they refuse them, an undercover cop named Hank offers them their only way out. The result of Hank’s help, however, will be something Rion and Tetsu never expected. Not ever!

Publisher's note:
Tetsu and Rion’s (as well as Hank’s) story is a standalone book, but also continues the “Boyslove in the Gangland District” series.

For Tachibana, it’s the last straw.

The trouble is…how can he recover after being dominated by Riyu for so long? How can he learn to trust someone else again?
