In Betwixt and Between, Ian and Zeke fought a battle against the queen of the dark realm in order to be together.

While Zeke helps the shaman Alistair in his hunt for an elusive mermaid, Ian is called to confront a wicked nymph preying on tourists along Seattle's waterfront. Zeke and Ian soon discover that the defeated Queen Ysolde has spread her evil into the sea realms, and danger lurks beneath every wave.

The image of mermaids passed down in lore was mostly mythical, a combination of wishful thinking and the faulty memories of drunken seamen. Although human in general shape and form above the waist, once out of the water and free from the seductive enchantment she’d woven around herself, Mellosa could never be mistaken for human. Her eyes were huge, mouth wide and full of sharp teeth, including incisors that would put any vampire to shame. Her hair wasn’t really hair but a living, breathing part of her, more akin to fronds or feathery tentacles then the dead strands that covered a human’s head. 

Her fingers were webbed, and fins sprouted from her shoulders and biceps. Still, as she drummed her fingers against the gunwale, it was easy to see how a lonely man or woman might become entranced by her.

“Why have you called me from my hunting?” she asked, speaking directly to Zeke in a high, almost screechy voice. Gills along her long neck fluttered softly. 

Alistair sank slowly to the bench. “Mellosa, my love, don’t you remember me?”

“Of course I remember you, smelly old man.” The way she emphasized man made it clear she considered the word an insult. “We of the Sea never forget.”


Title: Betwixt and Between
Release Date: June 29th 2015
Genre: Paranormal MM Romance, Fantasy



Reporter Ian Evers, obsessed with magical creatures since childhood, never experiences satisfying proof that the magical realm actually exists until he falls into an entrapment spell set by a handsome but dangerous elf. Barely escaping with his soul intact, Ian is able to undo the hex, but he can't escape the very real infatuation he's developed for the fierce, alluring elf.

Ezekiel Stormshadow is a svarta, a dark elf who serves the queen of the dark realm. The realm of darkness needs the power of light to survive, and while hunting the last few magical beings on earth, Ezekiel discovers Ian, a light elf who's unaware of his true nature and ripe for the plucking. Their brief encounter awakens a great hunger in Ezekiel, and he's determined to feast on the light elf's power and body before the queen intervenes and claims Ian for herself.

Ian knows only he can save Ezekiel from the grasp of the dark queen. Driven apart by the ancient imbalance between the dark and light realms, an evil queen starved for power, and their fear of each other, Ian and Ezekiel are relentlessly drawn together even though their union might destroy them both.

Author: A.T. Brennan
Series: Den Boys #1
Release Date: July 11th 2017
Genre: MM Erotic Contemporary Romance



“I learned a long time ago that nothing is free, not even help.” ~ Blaze

Almost getting killed in a gay bashing should have been one of the worst moments of my life, but with everything I've been through, it was just another day, except for the gorgeous man who stepped in to save me. There is something about Galen that draws me in and makes me want know him, and the more time I spend with him, the more I feel free to be myself. Galen doesn't seem to know what he wants, but I'm a man who stays true to himself, and Galen seems to be someone worth taking a chance on.

"Then you happened and all you have to do is touch me and I lose myself." ~ Galen

I never thought I'd stumble on an attempted murder, but that's exactly what happened one night while I was trying to get home. After chasing away the assailants and helping the enigmatic young victim home I tried to put the incident out of my mind, but I couldn't get him out of my head. I might not have ever thought about being with a man before, but the more time I spend with Blaze, the more I learn about who I really am. Blaze has scars that run deep, but as he opens up to me I find myself questioning everything I thought I wanted, and wondering if I'm a good enough man to give him what he needs.

As Galen drove us to his apartment I stared out of the window, lost in thought. 

Tonight had been the most fun I’d ever had with someone. I wasn’t proud to admit that a part of me had worried Galen would act like we were just guy friends hanging out, but he’d been nothing but open. He’d held my hand in public, kissed my cheek, and as far as I could tell he hadn’t spent the night looking over his shoulder to make sure people weren’t looking at us. 

He was being incredible, but there was still that nagging voice in my head that told me this couldn’t be real. Galen was from a well-respected, if not douchebag family. He was educated, successful and in a league I couldn’t even see, let alone be a part of. 

I was a castoff with a mismatched family I’d made after my own had abandoned me. I’d spent years whoring myself out to make enough money to survive, and I was a perpetual loser who barely managed to stay afloat, let alone move forward or up. 

Galen deserved someone better than me. Hell, everyone deserved someone better than me, and I was fooling myself if I thought for one second that he wouldn’t eventually see the truth. 

I was tainted. There was no way around it. What I’d done, what I’d been forced to do had tainted me. Every time I’d let some random guy with twenty bucks blow me, or fuck me for fifty, I’d branded myself. Every time I’d stuck that fucking needle in my arm to try and chase happiness in a high that was killing me, I’d destroyed even more of myself. When I’d used the bottle to dull the pain that only got deeper with every drink, I’d made myself nothing. 

It didn’t matter that I was clean now. It made no difference that I didn’t use my body to get what I needed anymore. None of that meant shit because it couldn’t change the past. It couldn’t erase the truth.
