Myths, moons, and mayhem make the perfect threesome—and so do the men in this anthology.
Enjoy nine erotic stories of paranormal ménages a trois fueled by lust and magic, where mystical forces collide with the everyday world and even monsters have their own demons to conquer.
A werewolf gets a lust-fueled lesson on fitting in with the pack, a professor unlocks ancient secrets and two men’s hearts, and a pair of supernaturals find themselves at the erotic mercy of a remarkable human. Ghosts, fairies, aliens, and mere mortals test the boundaries of their desires, creating magic of their own.

Excerpt from “The Secret of the Golden Cup” by Rebecca Buchanan in Myths, Moons, and Mayhem
About “The Secret of the Golden Cup”: Classics professor Grover Benson is on the cusp of translating an ancient artifact when he finds himself at the center of a magical war. With an unfairly attractive student and a campus janitor as his only allies, can he stave off the forces of evil?
This scene takes place before the war begins, before Grover even knows magic exists. Grover is reading the last paper of the semester, and as soon as he grades it, its writer will no longer be his student. Which is a good thing, because that student just hit on him earlier today, and Grover’s not sure about his ability to resist.
Grover set aside the next-to-last term paper, a scarlet B- scrawled across the last page, and reached for Homoeroticism in Late Bronze Age Cretan Art. Shifting in his chair, he flipped it open to the first page and began to read.
It was really quite good. The prose was engaging, not dry like so many papers. Academically solid, with fully cited primary and secondary sources. Dominic had chosen three wall paintings as reference, and included photos that he had taken himself.
So he had been to Crete at least once. That was better than Grover, who had barely worked up the nerve to leave his safe routine in Milwaukee for Rhode Island when he was hired by Laurel University.
He was so engrossed—nodding along to Dominic’s argument that one of the paintings had been misinterpreted as a father and son when it was clearly two grown men—that he started in alarm at the knock on his office door.
“Sorry.” Dominic tilted his head, backpack slung across his chest, a brown paper bag in his hand. It smelled of delicious vegetables and spicy noodles. “It’s after seven. Should I come back later?”
“Uh, no, not at—I mean, please come in. I’ll just… pardon me.” Grover hastily jotted a few notes and a bright red A at the end, and added it to the stack of papers. Standing, he nervously smoothed his shirt. “Please, have a seat. I just finished your paper.”
Dominic set the bag on the chair and started pulling out aluminum foil bowls and paper boxes. “Dare I ask?”
“What? Oh. Your paper was quite good. High marks, definitely.”
“So, does that mean you’re officially not my teacher anymore?”
Dominic’s eyes were still that ridiculous shade of teal. Grover had tried to convince himself that he had exaggerated the color in his memory, but, no, they really were teal. And right now they were fixed on Grover with an intensity that made his stomach tighten and his cock take notice in a way that it had not for quite some time.
He really should have stayed seated when he had the chance.
Dominic’s eyes dipped. Grover thought that having that gaze off his face for even a moment would help, but it actually made things worse, because Dominic’s eyes were fixed down there and Grover could feel his erection swelling with every breath and every tick of the clock.
Dominic leaned forward, bracing his hands on the desk. “I really, really want to kiss you.”
“Oh.” Grover licked his lips.
“Do you want to kiss me?”
“Yes. I mean ….”
Dominic leaned closer. Their noses bumped. “You’re really adorable when you’re flustered, you know that?”
“No.” Grover’s stomach growled. His face turned hot.
Dominic laughed, but it was a warm and accepting sound, not the least bit mocking. “Sit, Professor. Food first, then dessert.”
