Lovesick Gods
by Amanda Meuwissen


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Gay Paranormal Romance


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


The elements touch everyone on Earth—Fire, Water, even Light—but every so often someone becomes more attuned to their elemental leaning and develops true power. When an evil Elemental known as Thanatos arrived in Olympus City, it saw the rise of its first hero—Zeus. But the death toll caused by defeating Thanatos changed Zeus, who by day is young detective Danny Grant.


It’s been six months since Thanatos terrorized the city at the start of Lovesick Gods. Danny should be used to his duty behind the mask, but the recent past haunts him. His girlfriend left him, he snaps at the barest provocation, his life feels empty—he needs an outlet, any outlet to pull him out of his depression.


Enter notorious thief Malcolm Cho, the Ice Elemental Prometheus. There was a time when Danny welcomed a fight with Cho, filled with colorful banter and casual flirtations that were a relief compared to Thanatos. Even as a criminal, Cho had recognized the threat Thanatos posed and promised to help Danny stop him, but the day Danny needed Cho, he never showed. Cho was the reason so many people died that day—including Danny’s mother.


Danny decides to teach the man a lesson and fan the fire of their attraction into something more. At worst, he’ll get some no-strings-attached sex out of the deal and finally blow off steam; at best, he’ll get Cho to fall in love with him and then break his heart to spite him. Danny doesn’t expect to fall for Cho in the process, and he certainly can’t predict the much darker threat on the horizon.

EXCERPT:


Mal blinked at the most recent message on his phone. Standing by the door dressed to leave, he’d been intent on going to the safe house to work on the schematics he neglected last night. This turn of events had him quickly reconsidering.


Promptly removing his jacket, he replaced it in the closet. Pushing up his plans with Danny a night early sounded like a marvelous idea, especially with a promise like that.


I’m going to take you apart, Ice Man. Slowly.


Looking forward to it, Mal texted back.


Unexpected nerves fluttered through his stomach. Damn Dom for making him second guess this. Mal could worry about the heist later. He could worry about everything else later.


Knock. Knock. Two minutes indeed. Danny must have lightning jumped to reach him.


Mal opened the door with a smug grin. “Impatient as always I s—”


A flicker of lightning was his only warning as Danny rushed him, and Mal had barely enough time to note that the younger man had on a T-shirt and no jacket before the door slammed shut. His mind went blank at the sudden presence of Danny’s intruding tongue, hands around his back, one already up the back of his sweater.


Mal’s breath caught, swallowing down his heightened sense of fight or flight and shaking off the urge to summon ice over his skin like a shield. Sudden touch, harsh, demanding like this, being held in place—it always had him on alert for something else.


But no violence followed. No pain. Danny kissed him and kneaded the small of his back with long, powerful fingers. He would never hurt Mal outside a fight between hero and villain. He was just starved for touch, and Mal could accommodate.

    1. Thank you! Even just a snippet like this shows off a little the depth in the characters, the complications and hidden pasts to be discovered as the story unfolds. It was exciting to explore a more broken hero and a more redeemable villain character and bring them together somewhere in the middle. Thanks again, and I hope you check it out!

    1. Hello! After book 2 for this series is complete, I have a shorter romance novel out with publishers right now that I hope to release next year. I worked on it for NaNo.

      Synopsis
      Owen Quinn just got out of a long-term relationship he wants to forget. Lucky for him, his new career in Atlas City allows him to start over hundreds of miles from his ex. The only problem is he's lonely and terrible at starting new relationships. He just wishes that part of his life could be easier without revolving around sex.

      Cal Mercer is an escort for Nick of Time Escort Service. He is especially picky about the clients he takes on, but lately, he's felt like something is missing from his life. He’s never accepted a regular before looking for companionship more than sex, but the right client might be able to change his mind.

      Excerpt
      Everything had a pattern. The trick to understanding the data was in the models. The algorithms. The points along a timeline that indicated the probability of what should come next.

      Owen’s whole world revolved around patterns, but some things couldn’t be predicted. Whenever that happened, he thought back to something his mother once told him.

      “Meet every surprise in life like you had a plan all along.”

      Owen did not have a plan.
