The Line of Succession 4: Rex v. Regina

The Line of Succession 4: Rex v. Regina

Harry F. Rey

A life changing diagnosis flips the line of succession on its head, forging new alliances and reigniting old feuds. But every step closer to the crown brings new dangers, and no victory can come without a heavy cost.

The throne lies empty, the monarchy is in chaos, and a country mourns.

Fresh on the news that the Queen is near death comes the tragic demise of Prince James’ fiancée, Princess Katyn.

As the country gathers together to bury Katyn, James’ secret lover Andrew realizes the establishment has brutally turned against the Prince. Where the powers-at-be were once pushing for a smooth transition to King James, they now seem to favor his twin sister Alexandra and are working to upend the line of succession to see her sit on the throne. When Andrew discovers the cause of this betrayal is because James has received a life-changing diagnosis, the two men must decide what love and life and happiness mean to them, even at the expense of the throne.

It’s brother versus sister, Prince versus Princess, as James and Alexandra confront the paths laid out before them by both friends and foes. With the Queen’s last hours counting down, James and Alexandra will have to fight with everything they have to wear the crown...and to survive.

Not Gay, Man!

Not Gay, Man!

David Marchatt

When Greg falls for a gorgeous exhibitionist half his age, what he expects is a few lust-fuelled encounters. But what he finds is so much more than that.

The last thing Greg expects to find when going grocery shopping is a gorgeous, blond show-off—but a very attractive young man half Greg’s age lifts his shirt and gives Greg a tantalizing peek.

For weeks afterward, Greg can’t get that exhibitionist out of his mind. It was one of those rare encounters that he’ll have to learn to treasure...until he runs into that young man again, and this time that young man is fully naked in the middle of a park, victim of a clothes-stealing prank from his friends.

Greg offers Chris—the naked young man—some modesty and an escape. And soon Chris is in Greg’s home, naked, declaring that he’s not gay, and yet clearly flirting with Greg.

Chris is brash and adventurous, seeking pleasure wherever pleasure can be found. Going along with the heat of the moment, for fear that it might never happen again, Greg gives in to Chris’s temptations and soon finds himself in a steamy lust triangle from his wildest dreams.

But lust can become love...with the right guy.

Nuttin’ But Trouble

Nuttin' But Trouble

College of United Monsters #4

C.B. Archer

What happens when you’re a prankster for hire who exchanges jobs for cat themed rewards without ever questioning why you’re doing those jobs in the first place? Troubling stuff. Troubling stuff happens. Look, it isn’t a sex pun this time— but we took care of that with the actual title this time.

The once elite College of United Monsters (C.U.M.) is not only having financial troubles but is now suffering from missing student problems. In order to stay afloat, it has been forced to allow humans to register; but the problem is that they keep vanishing mysteriously. Humans, in a monster school? Well, not for much longer if this keeps up! Also, humans are getting kidnapped and that was probably a bigger danger to the school than needing to tighten up the budget.

Porter Giese was once a ridiculous human, before he died in a tragic Pilates accident. Now he roams the halls of the school as the ultimate get-things-done-ghost. Whose obsession with cats borders on Lycanthropy. Being invisible, it turns out, is quite a boon to an intrepid prankster. Another boon would be questioning the motives of your employers, but Porter still is sorely lacking in that department. But, honestly—with a name like Porter Giese were you really expecting someone that doesn’t accidentally sell out everyone they know for an all-knowing cat of pure malice? Okay, you probably were not expecting that one this time, but good on you for at least pretending you did for a minute there.

It serves you right for thinking that having a punny name and attending monster college was the only joke going around in this series.

Nuttin' But Trouble is a 17,000-word novella.

The thwarted abductor, however, is no ordinary man. He is the Frozen Prince—a supposed urban legend cursed with an ice-filled heart and dark magic. When Genevieve is swept away to his isolated castle in the Northern Mountain, however, she discovers that there is far more to the legend than has been told. Like the unimaginable depths his ethereal white eyes hold…and the hold they have on her.

Genevieve is trapped between something sinister hiding on the mountain and a cursed prince whose carnal cravings gnaw at his heart. Emblazoned in the icy clutches of desire, if they can’t solve the mystery behind the Frozen Prince, neither will survive.

College of United Monsters #3

C.B. Archer

What happens when you enroll in a monster college and finally meet your bitter rival face to face? Riding stuff. Riding stuff happens.

The once elite College of United Monsters (C.U.M.) is still having financial troubles. In order to stay afloat, it has been forced to allow humans to register. Humans, in a monster school? Preposterous! Also, monsters are real and that was probably a bigger shock to the world than one school of them allowing humans to enroll.

Nape MacGuffin is a regular, ridiculous human. A student in the suddenly popular Historical Pottery Studies course, Nape finds himself facing off against his class’s biggest rivals: the students of Automobile Theory & Repair, who are convinced the pottery class is out to destroy them. Naturally, they have to get to the pottery students first. But, honestly—with a name like MacGuffin, you know the entire reason he’s in this story is to get kidnapped later on to serve as a plot device. You did know that…right?

It serves him right for having a punny name and attending monster college.

Meanwhile, Lizzie pursues her own, far deadlier agenda. She’s finished holding onto secrets, and these particular secrets are the kind which, if they ever got out, could blow the entire line of succession wide open.
