QSFer Wendy Rathbone has a new MM/MMM paranormal romance out: Lord Vampyre.
When Lord Neverelle becomes a guest at Cliffside Keep, Vanni watches helplessly as Damion, the young man he’s grown up with and secretly loves, falls for the alluring and seductive stranger. Lord Neverelle is danger incarnate, and soon takes control of the household.
Not satisfied with Damion alone, Never uses a vampire trick called “the tempt” to compel Vanni, who is swept into a love triangle that includes fiery passion and nightly threesomes.
Now Vanni must ask himself, is any of this consensual? And what about Damion—does he really want to be with Vanni, or is it all a sensual play controlled by vampire compulsion?
M/M and M/M/M romance.
Wendy is giving away one e-copy of The Imposter Prince – for a chance to win, comment on the post below.
This is a little snippet just before the delicious mmm sex scene. There has been a lot of tension for a while now before this scene:
As if toying with them even further, Never said, “What do you think, Damion?”
Softly, “About what?”
“Your love is no longer a question.”
“It never was,” came the reply.
Vanni looked at him.
“For you, my lord,” Damion added.
Vanni’s chest ached.
Never smiled until his white teeth showed. “I know. And for Vanni?”
Damion’s breath hitched. “I–I–“
“I see,” Never said. He leaned in close until Vanni could smell the roses and the fresh spiced earth scent of him. “It is overwhelming, I know. Love. From all angles a twisting road, an agony of easy bruising for want of simple pleasure. An opening, a vulnerability that leaves you in weeping pieces not from pain, but unbridled rapture. The bliss of the body. The ecstasy of the mind. It is a risk to take that road for fear you might never reach the end. Or if you do, the fear is you will never reclaim that moment again, seeking your whole life for one more taste and always falling short. That is the agony of it, that the yearning cannot be stopped.”
Vanni swallowed hard. His muscles were bunched beneath his skin. He was hot and cold at the same time.
“Vanni, I want you to kiss Damion.”
His mouth opened. “But he doesn’t want me—“
“He does. Here and now. A little push is all you need and I am here to ease you through it. To taste the new flowering of all you are. It is better this way, all of us together. You will see.”
I love to write.
The reason I write romance these days is because the overwhelming power of falling in love (which has been proven to heal even cancer) is a game-changer. It makes sad people instantly happy. It makes bleak reality look sun-warmed and friendly again.
I have written in all genres: scifi, fantasy, horror, paranormal, contemporary, erotica, romance. But I keep coming back to romance. Gay romance. Male/male romance. The idea of two men falling in love in a society that has winced at that sort of thing for far too long (when in ancient times and other cultures it is considered normal) is alluring. Many of my themes involve abduction, pleasure slavery, indentured servitude, and imprisonment. It’s like, with my writing, I’m constantly breaking out of some self-imposed cage and letting my wings unfurl until I can finally fly.
This is why I write. This is what makes me burn.
All my books are available on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited. So if you have the urge, go take a look. See what’s on the shelf.
