Bring the Love – Anthology
by , , , , , , , and

There is something about the love of men for men that speaks to the heart. Masculinity in passion is more than muscle and attitude.

There is something about these stories that show men opening–sometimes eagerly, sometimes reluctantly–to love.

For your pleasure, we offer you men who reclaim lost love, men who find themselves in the love of another man, and men who defy oppression for the sake of love. These are stories that show that an ending is not necessarily the end and that softness is not the same as weakness.

Cold Days, Hot Nights
by

Love Stories for the Holidays

Holidays mark the passage of time in a way that synchronizes the calendar kept by the heart with the one kept by the head. More than just dates, holidays are intersections of memory and emotion, annual snapshots of who we are as we travel through life—and who we’re traveling with. Holidays remind us of who we want to share special moments with, and of those without whom the moments aren’t quite as special.

Julian Keys shows us how the quest to discover a secret love restores a cynic’s hope, how a moment of compassion turns a thief into a hero, how sympathy for the Devil can lead to a happy ending, and how a multicultural celebration opens the way for even the most unlikely unions.

Cold Days, Hot Nights shares four tales of holidays that become turning points in life and love for people who have lost faith in themselves, in each other, and in romance. From Halloween to Christmas to Valentine’s Day, Keys’ stories show how not simply the feeling of love, but the willingness to risk pain to be open to the possibilities love offers, can change a person’s life in wonderful ways.

There is much more to a palace eunuch than meets the eye. One man must face his greatest sins, while another battles to save his lover’s life. A woman must balance appeasing her ethereal deity and her earthly desires, and another is imprisoned behind the bars of a gilded cage.

Wicked Fairy Tales – Anthology
by , , , , , , and

An anthology of bedtime stories for adults!

Just what kind of happy goes into “happily ever after?” As children, it was enough that Pinocchio got to be a real boy and that Red wasn’t eaten by the wolf.

Ever wonder what mermaids do with the swimmers they seduce? Or why a dragon might prefer a castle-guarded princess to a nice, easy field of sheep? What if your fairy godmother wasn’t circumspect in what wishes could be granted, or if that dainty little fairy had a much bigger appetite than one might guess?
