Gay Romance Bundle Teasers #5: Charming

This is the fifth and final day of our series of juicy excerpts from the five volumes of our giant Gay Romance Bundle.

Charming, edited by Jen Levine and Rian Darcy, is a collection of eight modern gay fairy tales.  Our excerpt is the first third or so of Nightingale by Evey Brett:

Nightingale

The Emperor of Jazz always played as if death were on his heels, but it was I, Night, who became death’s accompanist.

During our gigs Emp’s fingers traveled up and down the piano keys, pulling out impossible chords and intricate riffs no other man alive could. I kept pace on my tenor saxophone, and together we had the musical world at our feet.

At night, our musical intimacy turned physical. Those fingers played my body the way they did the piano, tickling the insides of my thighs, stopping to stroke the length of my cock and teasing me until I begged him to let me come.

Chocolatiers of the High Winds by H. B. Kurtzwilde, a 2013 Lambda Literary Award finalist, is a Steampunk story about two old school friends with a special bond, an airship, and a confectionary empire, centered on a Confederate south that never was. A rollicking adventure, full of derring-do, vivid characterization, and, of course, lots of sex.

Simulacrum by Rian Darcy is an ingeniously plotted Cyberpunk detective story about an LA cop and a programmer hunting a serial killer through the sex clubs and false identities of virtual reality.

Faewolf by D. M. Atkins and Chris Taylor is the raw, steamy, and emotionally intense story of a Santa Cruz college student and the lupine shapeshifter to whom he feels an uncontrollable attraction.

Leather Spirit Stallion, by Raven Kaldera, a 2015 Lambda Literary Award finalist, is about a modern day Mongolian shaman in California. After he uses his shamanic abilities to save the life of a young man, they enter into a passionate BDSM relationship.

Charming, edited by Darcy and Jen Levine,  a 2016 Lambda Literary Award finalist, is a collection of modern gay retellings, continuations, or reinterpretations of traditional fairy tales.

All five books are full of bold characters, exciting adventure, and intense sex, and the bundle is only available for a limited time!

In the virtual world of Simulnet, no one knows who you really are, making it the perfect playground for the imagination… and for a serial killer.

Shaun’s world turns upside down when a police detective asks for his help finding a murderer somewhere in the cyberspace sex clubs, ramen shops, and massage parlors of Simulnet. His partner on the case will be a prickly and enigmatic programmer known only as Lore. But as they search for the killer, Shaun finds himself wanting to know more and more about his partner. Ultimately the questions Shaun will need to answer most are the ones he asks himself, deep in his heart.

Combining romance, mystery, and cyberpunk, Rian Darcy creates a world for the reader every bit as engrossing and heart-stopping as Simulnet itself. Simulacrum is the latest book in the Clasp Editions imprint of sf/f erotic romances from Circlet Press.

About the Author:
Rian Darcy is the real life alter-ego of fan fiction author Nishizono Shinji. Once upon a time, she wanted to be an archaeologist (or an astronaut, or a librarian, or a dinosaur), but writing has always been her one true love. She likes coffee, Sherlock Holmes, and things that make her laugh until she cries. Rian’s work has appeared in Spellbinding: Tales from the Magic University, published by Ravenous Romance, and she is editing an anthology of gay fairy tales for Circlet Press entitled Charming.
