New Gay M/M release...The Elf and Shoemaker

I have a brand new release...it just came out yesterday! It's a contemporary fantasy called The Elf and Shoemaker. Here's the scoop on it...

Logan Shoemaker is honest, hardworking, and loves what he does. Though he never expects to get rich, up until recently he’s fared well enough to stay comfortable with his quirky metaphysical store, Shoemaker’s Magick Shoppe. But when the economy comes on hard times, his store pays the price. As each month passes, slow sales turn into no sales, and soon Logan’s living off ramen noodles and sleeping in a freezing house during the cold winter nights as he struggles to make ends meet. His personal life isn’t much better—the worse business at the store grows, the more isolated and lonely he becomes. After a string of mishaps that wipe out the last of his small savings, he finally hits rock bottom the day he discovers the disconnection notice from the electric company hanging on his door. That night, desperate and in despair, he makes a plea to the universe, asking for help.

Needless to say, he never anticipates receiving a response so quickly. Not only does he wake up the next morning to find on his kitchen table four little bottles of a special potion labeled “PASSION,” but he keeps remembering the erotically charged dream he’d had during the night. A dream where a tall, gorgeous man with pointed ears comes to his bed and shows him just what kind of magick they can make together.

But was it a dream? All Logan knows is that his customers can’t get enough of the PASSION potion--an aphrodisiac--and he can’t stop thinking about the sweet seduction of the nighttime visitor who made it. As he tries to sort out what’s real and what’s not, he discovers there’s a much bigger world out there than he’d ever believed, and his true heart’s desire might come in a most unexpected form.

If you'd like to read an excerpt, you can check one out on my website or read an excerpt and buy a copy at Amber Allure!

For those of you who've enjoyed my Draegan Lords series...you might be interested to know this book is loosely related. A careful reader will find a few familiar things in this story. ;) (And after you read it, if you want to email me and confirm or ask questions...go for it! *g*) But not to worry for those who haven't read The Draegan Lords series...this book is fully standalone and you'll be able to read it on its own merits.

I think it's quite a good story and one I really loved writing, so I hope readers will love it, too!

Have a great week, everyone!

XOXO,
