What's On the Reading Radar? #WishList #TBR

What have I been doing this week? Well, it was release week for Caledonia Destiny. Attempting to get the file uploaded for the print version and Createspace is giving me lip.

In between the chaos, I've also been re-editing Alpha Trine for the contract renewal. That isn't going as quickly as I thought it would but I'm not going to rush it. 

Title: The Leshy and the Lumberjack

Length: 132 pages
Publisher: LT3 Press

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Gay / 


Blurb: In Isaak's sleepy town, monsters live next door. Most of the townsfolk prefer to avoid the dark, eerie woods, but Isaak enjoys spending his days there. Armed with his grandmother's stories, he chops wood and plants trees, and keeps the peace between men and monsters.

Then he meets the Leshy, the god who guards the forest and all who dwell in it. He is also known for abducting travelers—or tickling them to death. But the god he meets is nothing like the stories he was told, and the more time they spend together the more Isaak hates to leave him.

But the Leshy isn't the only thing lurking in the woods...

Title: Touch of Magic

Publisher: NineStar Press (May 28, 2018)

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Gay / 


Blurb: After returning to the straight and narrow, Cary Westfield hopes to rebuild his life as a stage magician. Only thing is, the success of his new show is entirely dependent on a strange medallion inherited from his late grandfather—an amulet that holds a rare and inexplicable power to captivate the wearer’s audience.

Ty prides himself on his ability to obtain any item of magical significance—for the right price. When a mysterious client hires him to steal a magical amulet from a neophyte illusionist, he’s sure it will be a quick and easy job, earning him a nice chunk of cash.

As it turns out, nothing is sure when greed and powerful magic are at play. When a mob boss with far-reaching aspirations beats Ty to the snatch, Cary and Ty form an unlikely partnership to get the amulet back. The unexpected spark of attraction between them is a welcome perk, but each man has his own plan for the prize.

All bets are off, however, when it is revealed the magical amulet holds a darker secret than either of them had bargained for.

Title: Gift of the Goddess
Author(s): Kaje Harper
Length: 73 pages

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Gay /


Blurb: Desperate times call for desperate measures. 

Garvin’s worst fear is realized when he runs home from the fields to find his lover’s forge empty, his tools scattered, and the ground trampled by a band of soldiers. Nyle has been kidnapped and conscripted into the King’s army—a death sentence even for a big smith like Nyle.

Garvin is untrained, unarmed, and nowhere near strong enough to take on one soldier, let alone a whole army. His household skills and a way with horses aren't much to work with, but he can't let that stop him. For the first time in his life, he prays to the Goddess for the help he desperately needs.

He’s not expecting an answer. Particularly the one he gets.

This is a rerelease of the 2012 Storm Moon Press story. It has been edited and polished, but there are no substantial changes.

Content warning - contains a brief on-page episode of dubious to non-consensual sex.

Ena is a young warrior for the more savage Misiq, a tribe whose cruelty exemplifies their deity—the Angry God. The Misiq, also shifters, have declared a genocidal war against the Chinjoka, blaming them for the disease devastating both tribes. As a result, they are locked in a battle for survival.
