Blurb for the Anthology

Monsters deserve love too…

From werewolves, vampires, and even Bigfoot, these beasts manage to find love. Whether they are able to sink their claws into that love and keep it is another story. When it comes down to it, don’t judge a book by its cover. This anthology brings a mixture of what ifs and happily ever afters.

Featuring stories from T.C. Mill, A.K. Moss, Toni Mobley, Barend Nieuwstraten III, Ashley L. Hunt, Charles Kyffhausen, Lil Deville, Kelly Piner, Jess Monica, and Karen Bayly.

Graphic sexual content is included within this anthology.

Blurb for The Beasts of Hank's Wood

Joe Schola III is the eighteen-year-old son of Joseph Schola Junior, a fire-and-brimstone preaching Fundamentalist televangelist. While young Joe is far less homophobic than his father, he is struggling to come to terms with his own sexual orientation. Will Joe dare accept the invitation to become part of a clan of shapeshifters, and will he accept the love being offered to him by the handsome fox shifter Lovell Azarola?


Read the previous snippet here:

While Lovell massaged my hands and forearms, I felt like I'd slipped into another world. The cab of the truck faded, and he and I were alone, surrounded by mist. I felt his lips brushing mine as he leaned in. I parted my lips and our tongues danced slowly around each other. My cock was throbbing, and I wanted him to take me, to make me his, to do whatever he would.

I returned to reality when Lovell’s fingertips caressed my cheek.

“We’re here,” he said.

I was in a daze as Lovell helped me out of the truck. The exuberant Forest broke the spell, pulling me into a spine-cracking bear hug.

“It was so good to meet both of you, Man,” he said. 

(Not the steamiest of steamy snippets, but you get the idea.)

  1. Thanks for joining this month's Steam Hop, Lil!

  2. A great short scene. I love this visual: The cab of the truck faded, and he and I were alone, surrounded by mist.

  3. :) a hint of future steam, and they generated a mist. Great snippet.

  4. Steamy enough to make me want to read more :-)

I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
