QSFers Harrison J. Phillips And Lisa Oliver have a new MM paranormal book out: “The Peacock And The Jackal.”
How hard can it be?
Rescue the Prince and live happily ever after. Easy right? Especially for a jackal war correspondent who considered battles just another day in paradise. But what Eryk didn’t count on was a vain, determined, neurotic peacock who was turning out to be more trouble than an entire pack of Siberian wolves.
Far aka Prince Farquar von Tripp only wanted one thing, to escape his father, so he and a friend hatched a plan to marry. The only one not happy with it was his demanding peacock half. When he broke the engagement, loudly and publicly, being kidnapped by his own jackal mate probably saved him from being sold to the Grand Prince of the Russian Wolves.
Now they were on the run from the King, the Grand Prince, a bounty hunter, and the rest of the world searching for the kidnapped prince. Can an overprotective jackal and neurotic peacock find love on the run?
From Chapter 13
He found himself facing a large white peacock with a decidedly pissed tilt to its beak. The peacock stomped towards him and that was no mating dance.
Look, it was the only way to keep you and Far safe.”
“I didn’t know you were terrified of water.”
Whoops, wrong way to put that. Eryk took a step back.
“I didn’t know you were…” A step back.
Shit. Better to not go there. Step back.
“I didn’t realize Far couldn’t swim.”
Okay, they were getting somewhere. “It was only ankle deep. He should’ve realized that. And you should let him learn to swim then you both would be safe.”
Phil has always claimed to be a Jack of All Trades. He’s been on the Internet since before it was an Internet. It was merely a linking of military main frame computers at the time. He lays claim to the job titles of US Navy sailor, cook, bottle washer, Mental Health Technician, Administrative Supervisor, Forensic Psychiatric Security Guard, Starving College Student, Auctioneer, Computer Guru, and Teacher. Published in 1975, he wrote a biographical article for a local doctor. Pay was office visits. After college for Journalism, he went into the USN instead where he attended DP ‘A’ school and programmed main frame computers. Leaving the military, he went to work in Mental Health and worked with the criminally insane [see Broadmoor documentary if you want to know about this job] also picking up various college credits along the way. In 1993 he went back to college full time and proceeded to get degrees in various subjects. His favorite hobby is collecting those degrees and he eventually hopes to have enough to wallpaper his den.
Lisa Oliver’s first fiction book was The Reluctant Wolf, book one in the Cloverleah series. Since then she’s written more than fifty other titles spanning a number of different series including Bound and Bonded, Stockton Wolves, Balance, The God’s Made Me Do it, City Dragons, The Necromancer’s Smile, and the Alpha and Omega series. A huge fan of the true mate trope, Lisa’s books are all paranormal, all M/M (although a few M/M/M have crept in too) and all have an HEA.When not writing, Lisa can be found with her nose in a book or out walking her Rotty pups. Her adult children and grandchildren have found the best way to get her off the computer is to offer her chocolate.
