Deadly Valentine

Deadly Valentine

John Luke Maxwell

Dating a porn star comes with certain expectations, especially when one's relationship remains somewhat in the limelight. More than once, Rafael Vásquez has been asked via social media if his porn legend hunk of a boyfriend, Jean Locke Holmes, will ever come out of retirement. Holmes seems content to live out a life of leisure with Raf, however, focusing on their relationship and the occasional baffling murder case that comes their way.

That is, until a chance encounter with Holmes' old director pushes Holmes back into the business. Kincaid Marx, the man whose movies made Holmes the iconic gay sex stud that he is, wants to make one final movie before he retires from filmmaking. This production is to be Kincaid's magnum opus, a blockbuster-worthy flick that will rock the Grabby Awards. For that to happen, though, Kincaid needs Holmes to agree to star in it. Joining the lineup-up is a second porn legend, Casper Peyton, whom Holmes just so happens to be a fan of. The two salacious studs will have to share far more than the spotlight, and Raf finds himself sidelined into the role of extra and script doctor.

Things take an even more complicated turn after several accidents occur on set. Someone seems determined to shut Kincaid's production down for good. Adding to the mystery is a sinister presence stalking Peyton, one who claims through threatening Valentines to know secrets lurking in Peyton's past. Holmes will have to get to the bottom of this mystery—and get in touch with his inner bottom in the process. Raf learns very quickly the differences between fantasy and reality. Can his relationship with Holmes survive the stud's return to stardom?

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…

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.
