New Release: Benedict & Bear – Lisa Oliver

Benedict and Bear - Lisa Oliver

QSFer Lisa Oliver has a new MM paranormal romance out: Benedict & Bear.

Necromancer Benedict Dule’s morning was completely upended when a spirit of a young woman appeared in his bookshop. Emma was particularly insistent that he find a way to get a note to her brother, claiming the man who killed her was her brother’s lover. Unable to resist Emma’s persistence, Benedict finds a way to get a note to the man concerned and notches that up as his good deed for the day. Little did he know how much that simple note would change life as he knew it.

Bear shifter, Dixon Cottle was having a crap-fest of a day, starting with a phone call from a stranger letting him know his sister had been in an accident. Surrounded by humans, on a busy city street, Dixon had no way of tracking the killer or doing anything at all to help his dead sister, except let the police handle the case in their own way. Until one of the officers handed him a note, and suddenly Dixon had clues… he just wasn’t sure what to do with them.

Sometimes it doesn’t pay to get out of bed in the morning, as Benedict and Dixon soon learn. Despite help from unlikely quarters, a monster evolves before their eyes. When the dead start rattling their bones under the streets of San Francisco, the intrepid pair might find they have bitten off more than they can chew.

While this story is a Fated Mates book, it is also a slow burn for obvious reasons. Benedict and Bear is part one in a three book trilogy and while the plot lines in this part are resolved, the book does end with a lead into book 2.

This story was originally written as a serial for my Patreon members. Thank you my lovely friends.

The woman folded her arms across her chest. “You’re not very good at this, are you? I thought people who talked to the dead were all, what’s your name, and who killed you, and did you see your killer?”

Glancing outside where the street was slowly getting busier as businesses opened, like his one should be, Benedict looked back at the young woman. “I didn’t summon you. I’m a Necromancer, not a medium. It’s not like the movies, I’m afraid. If you’re the victim of foul play, I’m sure the police will find your body and launch an investigation. I don’t work with them or have anything to do with them.”

Leaning over the counter, he put his hand up to the side of his mouth. “Even if they’ve heard of necromancy, you can bet they don’t believe in it.” Benedict straightened up again. “Now, you need to go, young lady. You have places you’re meant to be, and it’s not here.”

Author Bio

Lisa Oliver’s first fiction book was The Reluctant Wolf, book one in the Cloverleah series. Since then she’s written more than ninety 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. Her adult children and grandchildren have found the best way to get her off the computer is to offer her chocolate.
