When boy meets (supernatural) boy
Buckle up as two queens of British gay romance take you on a whistlestop tour of all things paranormal. Vampires, genies, ghosts, magicians and shifters all get their chance for a bit of boy on boy action, in five erotic stories that span the range from the humorous to the sublime.
Will you seek to make your fortune with magic and ritual, or pin your hopes on a genie’s power to grant wishes? Discover a shifty young man on a Scottish shoreline, meet a hapless garlic farmer who’s been turned into one of the undead–and if you dare to venture into the cellar, gird your loins for a horny ghost!
These stories have all been previously published, but are now available exclusively in this anthology.
This is the first time I’ve ever read anything by Josephine Myles, and the second time for JL Merrow. I’ve heard a lot about how funny Miss Myles stories were, so I was really looking forward to this anthology.
When I started the first story about a vampire (one of my favorite subjects) I was ready for some fun and hotness. Funny it was indeed. Hotness…kinda. But just when I was getting into the story, it was done. I kept turning pages to see where the rest was, but the next story already started. It wasn’t that the ‘chapter’ I got was bad, not at all, but it was…extremely short. Even for an anthology.
The next story was the same, very nicely done, but no more than a chapter. It was so short, I can’t even do a little synopsis of them because that would ruin them.
They were all very funny, though. Except the last one, that one was kind of sad. And why did they have to end with that one, eh? Why I ask you??
To be fair, I did like the writing a lot, and I will definitely be looking up more of both these author’s books.
Maybe to be just a bit of a tease…the story about sex with a ghost was freaking weird, and awesome at the same time. Very hot, (or cold) but strange.
