QSFer Deja Black has a new MM fantasy/merman book out: Life’s Greatest Masterpiece.
A Guardian protecting his heart. A merman with hopes of becoming an artist. Will their love become life’s greatest masterpiece?
Long ago, Lindh lost his wife to a fellow Guardian. Taking vengeance into his own hands, he was betrayed by his Guardian brothers. He left, taking his twin children to live on the surface world.
Trillian, a grandson of Neptune, has received permission to stay on land for one year to learn the skills he always dreamed of as an artist.
Neither man expected to find each other.
Neither expected to find love—life’s greatest masterpiece.
For Lindh Hali, being a chef rather than a Guardian of Neptune had its advantages. No one knew he was a merman besides his children and loyal soldiers. Well, except for Batair, his close friend, confidant, and brother of the sea who first knew him as Lanh Seamus. Lindh had used that name when he moved to the surface to escape detection by any trouble that might have followed him.
It had been years, and the only battle he faced now was in the kitchen of Iliona’s Sea Haven—his restaurant, the namesake of his lost love—or with his twins Coralia and Adamaris. Well, sometimes, the occasional human who’d had too much to drink. And the only commands he gave to his faithful Guardian soldiers Dorian, Azizi, and Edra were for meals to be prepared and delivered to the tables. It was a life he loved.
DEJA BLACK had fantasies of men loving men, men who felt strongly, loved hard, and needed a hero. Then one great day she came across a book and discovered the world of m/m writing, encountered others who shared her obsession as much as she did, and found a world where she could not only be accepted for the lives and loves she envisioned, but she could create them too. So why not? Why not take the stories she would write and throw away as a teenager, grow them, dream them, and make them a reality where she could know her own characters, let them live their story, and make them real for someone else? And she did. Now, with the support of her hubby and some intense time management, she is learning to balance her family of two children at home and the many others she teaches each and every day with her passion of writing what she loves to read.
