Timon wishes for the day when his dominating and demanding sister, Leah, is finally married to the rich and darkly handsome Sir Jocelyn. Then Timon dreams of being free to travel and live his own life.

Agapito is destined to be a slave for Jocelyn--a sex slave--but Agapito's prayers are answered when the dashing Timon buys him instead.

When Timon rescues Agapito, he has no idea what changes to his life the act of charity will bring. Agapito is as beautiful as he is enigmatic, and friendship between them soon becomes love.

But one man still stands between them and happiness. Sir Jocelyn lives a dual life--as a businessman with influence and a fiancee, and as a sexual taskmaster with a cruel streak. As Timon and Agapito discover, Jocelyn is as dangerous as he is dissolute.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This is a significantly expanded and re-edited re-release title.

 And we've got a ton of great new reviews in!

"Another great novel by Edward Kendrick. The story line was strong and the characters were unique and lovable. I love Simon and Daniel. They were so meant for each other. Both appear the lonely types not realizing they were looking for anyone. But it happens. I definitely recommend this one."
Pam Kay for Goodreads

"The Memory of Mermaids is a delightful romantic fantasy, full of wacky characters and local color. I've never visited the area where the book is set, but the author really brings it to life. I could almost smell the tide, feel the ocean breezes, and taste the rum. I loved Mr. Dryden's creation myth which explains the mutual attraction between men and mermaids. Hey, his story is at least as plausible as Genesis!"
Lisabet Sarai on Amazon

"I love this book! This is an implausible story that is riveting and fast paced with what becomes a convincingly, believable plot-line! I loved it and the sex with a mermaid, sex one rarely thinks is possible, becomes totally hot and realistic. Spencer has written a delightfully entertaining novel, complex and riveting characters, even though some are mythical. It is an engaging blend of contemporary and fantasy that he has crafted with precision skill. Completely engaging and worthy afternoon read."
PA Jiuditta for Amazon

"I loved everything about this story. The interaction between Max and the mermaid Azzaria is enthralling. Oh, and it goes without saying the author, Spencer Dryden, knows how to draw a reader into the steamy passages. Well done! The adorable way the mermaid speaks to Max made me grin. I'm a voracious reader, but haven't read a single book about mermaids until now. The Memory of Mermaids is certainly a great start into something new. The human/mermaid interaction is very tastefully done. The twist of mythology mixed with theology is thought-provoking. This novella is a fun read. Lose yourself in a new world, and a new way of thinking."
Jeannie on Amazon

"Loved, loved, LOVED the main character Paul. I can see why women throw themselves at him. A handsome knight in shining armor -- both figuratively and literally. What woman doesn't love that! This is a beautiful story about coming to terms with loss and having the strength to move on and enjoy life. I can't wait for the next book to come out."
Shannon F for Amazon

"This book took me by surprise. For one, it's written by a man, which is unusual. The unique perspective on the smexy scenes, as well as the emotional development of the characters, fascinated me. It's well written with an interesting plot and unique setting (a professional entertainer who jousts at festivals! I mean, how do you come up with that?) Definitely a fun romp!"
S.H. for Amazon

"Ian Smith tells another kind of knight's tale. It's pure male fantasy but there's nothing wrong with that. Not to let the horse out of the barn, but there is plenty of hot sex for his character. Plenty happens at night in this novella length tale as Paul works out his grief with two fair maidens competing for his attention. A little slow at the start but reaches a full gallop by the end."
Max Lemberger for Amazon

"I feel I learned something other than where to put what in what frequency in what position. His intellect is apparent; his knowledge of geology, history, literary and theatrical arts go a long way toward solidifying the arc, providing elements of interest that enlighten and entertain us far beyond the touching story line. Effective humor. Cat & mouse sexy. Smith plays well with atmosphere and sensitivity. Smith's characters are such likeable, well-intentioned people. But they do get up to some shenanigans. We hope the best for them."
John Ristow for Amazon 

"A very special story. It contains just enough magic to make me believe in Santa and Christmas all over again, never mind the fact that I know they can't be real. What this story brought out in me was the desire to believe again, and I found its touch of magic charming. It's easily explained away if anyone were determined to ignore the signs, but for me and others who are equally determined to hang on, there are more than enough hints to "prove" that we are as entitled to believe as others are not to do so. If you like stories with a touch of "real" magic, if two lonely men finding each other against all the odds sounds like something you'd like to find out more about, and if you're looking for a read that is sweet, full of Christmas magic, and is bound to make you smile, then you will probably enjoy this short story as much as I did. It's fantastical and makes me wish it were real."
Serena Yates for Rainbow Book Reviews

"It is always fascinating to see how two men who have been lovers for years still manage to misunderstand each other. And, as is the case in 'Never Let Me Go', not about the small stuff either. These two are quite the pair! The angst and longing jump off the pages, and I was glad to see each man had friends and people who care about them. I doubt they would have figured it out by Christmas if they hadn't been more or less gently pushed in the right direction -- toward each other! If you like angsty books with men who love each other deeply but are too afraid to admit it out loud, if lovers who believe they are doing "the best thing" for their partner while dying inside are your thing, and if you're looking for a read full of longing, fear of rejection, and characters who wish things were different, then you might like this short story."
