The Recluse by Edward Kendrick
gay contemporary sensual romance
36912 words, 189 pages
$3.99 in ebook

TV star Laird Wakefield died after a motorcycle accident--or so it was announced to the news outlets by his doctors. Not true. With his face horribly scarred, he has gone into total seclusion, living in what the townspeople call "the haunted mansion on the hill" for the past five years.

But that is about to change. On a dare from his brother, twenty-three-year-old Dev Pierson breaks into the mansion's basement. When Laird catches him in the act, Dev is terrified at first when he sees Laird's face and Rage, Laird's huge guard dog. Much to Dev's surprise, after he explains why he's there, Laird invites him upstairs for a drink.

Slowly, a friendship develops between the two men. Then the question becomes, can Dev convince Laird to face his fears and end his reclusive existence? And if he makes the attempt, will Laird survive emotionally?
 
EXCERPT-
 
A scream echoed through the mansion.

Devin heard it and froze in the dark of the basement, praying he wouldn't be found. There were stories about the place, about the thing that lived there--half human, half beast, or so it was said. He hadn't believed them until this moment. Even now, he wasn't certain he did.

It could be kids fooling around. Or...or someone exploring, like me, and maybe falling down the stairs. I should go see. What if they're...dead? Or dying?

He'd come to the mansion after work Tuesday night on a dare from his older brother, Alex. Sibling rivalry, even though they were twenty-three and twenty-four respectively. It had always been like that between them; the "Can you top this?" challenges.

Alex had been in town two weeks before for a three-day visit. When they'd driven through the neighborhood housing the mansion on the hill, Dev had told him the rumors he'd heard about it. Alex had immediately asked if Dev had checked it out.

"No way," Dev replied.

Alex grinned. "Scared?"

"No," Dev protested. "I'm not into breaking and entering."

"No one lives there, you said, other than some fairytale monster--as if--so that makes you a chicken."

"Damn, Alex, grow up. Would you go in there?"

Alex had thought about it, looking up at the imposing structure. Then he'd shook his head. "Nope. But I dare you to."

That had been it, not that Dev had immediately taken him up on the challenge, despite Alex's teasing taunts, during the rest of his visit, that Dev was afraid of the place. He wasn't, not really. He just had other things to keep him busy, between work and entertaining his brother. Alex had left, and Dev had figured that was the end of it. Still, his interest had been piqued, and when Alex sent him several emails about how he'd chickened out on the dare, Dev had decided what the hell.

There's probably no way I can get in there, anyway, without setting off alarms. The place has to have security up the wazoo. Then I can tell Alex I tried and that will be the end of it.

Fortunately--or unfortunately, he wasn't sure which--getting inside the mansion hadn't been a problem. After climbing a tree by the brick wall surrounding the yard then dropping to the ground, he'd begun creeping around the exterior looking for light shining through any of the windows. He was halfway around when he realized they were all covered with drapes. If anyone is in there, I wouldn't know it. That gave him pause, but a dare was a dare and he wasn't about to flake out and have Alex taunt him for the rest of his life about backing down, so he'd jimmied opened a basement window, expecting alarms to go off, giving him an excuse to leave--fast. That hadn't happened. Taking a deep breath, he'd climbed through, dropping to the floor quietly on sneaker-shod feet.

The room in the basement was dark, the only light coming from the almost-full moon shining through the windows behind him and the dim glow through the open door at the top of a flight of stairs that he could barely see at the far side of the room. Cautiously he'd started toward them, avoiding a large workbench on the way.

Then...the scream.

*****

Laird stood in the pantry at the top of the basement stairs, smiling maliciously. His left hand rested on Rage's huge head. In his right hand, he held a small recorder. If that doesn't send whoever's down there running...

He listened for the sound of retreating footsteps, muttering invectives under his breath when, instead, they came closer. He pushed the button on the recorder again and an ear-piercing scream echoed through the pantry and down the stairs. He heard a gasp of fear.

Go. Whoever you are. You're not wanted here.

A moment later, the sound of someone hastily heading toward the basement windows made him smile with relief. Tell all your friends you heard someone being attacked. That should keep up the mythos that my home is haunted, if that's the tale at the moment.

He knew there was a chance that whoever it was might call the police. That didn't bother him in the least. The police knew he lived in the mansion and that he used Rage or sound effects to scare away any trespassers. Of course, it had taken a couple of visits by patrol officers back when he'd first moved in before they were convinced he was quite capable of handling things on his own.

One look at Rage--and at my face--and the officers knew anyone who dared enter the house would leave like the devil was after them, without help.

He started to return to his library, where he'd been deeply engrossed in the book he'd been reading before Rage's demeanor had alerted him to the trespasser. Now, a low growl from Rage stopped him. Signaling for the dog to be quiet, Laird listened.

Our intrepid explorer seems to have changed his mind about leaving.

"Stay," Laird ordered Rage under his breath. The dog froze, ready to attack if ordered to. Laird moved to the top of the stairs.

NEW RELEASE-A Gothic vampire for Halloween!

 
A Gothic vampire for Halloween!
Brougham Hall by Nicki J. Markus
historical Gothic/Regency vampire romance
70606 words, 335 pages in ebook/284 pages in print
$4.99 in ebook, $13.49 in print
NOTE: Print releases by Saturday!

A family estate falling into ruin. A young woman thrown into an unfamiliar world. Two brothers at odds over their secret. And an ancient malice that threatens destruction and death.

December 1822, Wiltshire, England

When Catherine goes to live with her highborn cousin's family at Brougham Hall, she expects restrictions on her previously free lifestyle and comments on her lack of social grace. What she does not anticipate is the loss of her heart, nor a web of dark family secrets that threaten the safety of everyone in the house.

Vampire twins Hal and James are Lord Grovely's guests. Though close in some respects, the different approach each takes to his vampiric nature puts a strain on their relationship. Having hoped for a pleasurable sojourn, they find themselves drawn into an unfolding drama in which their brotherly bond will be sorely tested.


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Catherine
Monday, 23 December 1822

"That's as far as I can take yer, miss."

Startled, Catherine turned in her seat and stared at the stagecoach driver. So absorbed had she been in her thoughts, she had failed to notice when the juddering vehicle came to a halt. The driver waited patiently by the open door while she gathered her faded mantle and her reticule and clambered out. She was grateful for the man's proffered hand. It was not her most elegant exit, but her legs were stiff from the arduous journey. In order to reach Wiltshire on time, she had taken few breaks, trapped inside one crowded coach after another, with only brief stops to water or change the horses en route between counties.

She opened her purse and paid the remainder of the fare, noticing how much lighter the bag was than when she set out. The coins Lord Grovely sent to cover her travel expenses dwindled, but thoughts of the regular allowance that awaited her at her destination reassured her.

As she cast the mantle about her shoulders, she glanced around, trying to get her bearings. By good fortune, the driver noticed her confusion and pointed to a nearby gate, beyond which she perceived a gravel path leading into the woods.

"Brougham 'all's down that way, miss. I 'ated the thought of a young woman cuttin' cross-country alone, and since me route was done fer the day and you me last passenger, I figured I'd bring yer the extra 'alf mile to save yer legs."

"Thank you, sir; that was most kind."

The driver dismissed her gratitude with a nod. "Yer can reach the main 'ouse on foot from 'ere." He paused. "Taking up a serving position with Lord Grovely, are yer, miss?"

"No." Catherine tore her gaze from the woods. "I am here for the end of the wedding celebrations. Lord Grovely is a distant relative of mine and I was invited here to be companion to his bride."

"Begging yer pardon, miss. I meant no offence."

"None taken."

The man's assumption did not surprise her, given her appearance and attire. Not to mention her mode of travel. Indeed, she believed herself to be the more shocked of the two. The arrival of the invitation to Brougham Hall had been unexpected. Lord Grovely's branch of the family had diverged from hers long ago, and the two had never been much in contact, being, as they were, of different social standing.

"Will yer manage all right wi' this?" The driver gestured to the small bag he had lifted out of the boot. "I can walk 'lon'side fer a bit, if yer need me."

Catherine considered the offer, but decided there was no need to inconvenience the man further. She had but a few dresses, so the bag was not heavy. She was used to long, country walks and could manage a short stroll through the woods unaccompanied. The path looked traversable, if a little cluttered by dead leaves.

"Thank you, but I will be perfectly fine on my own from here."

"Farewell then, miss," the driver said, tipping his hat. "I 'ope yer enjoy the celebrations. Folks say wedding in t' village church last week was quite the event." With that, he returned to the coach, climbed up, and turned the horses, heading back towards the main thoroughfare.

Catherine watched until the vehicle disappeared from sight around a corner; then she set off in the direction the driver had indicated. The rusty iron gate stuck when she tried to open it. She adjusted her grip on her bags and pushed harder. It inched back with a shuddering whine. Was this a rear entrance? It had to be. Lord Grovely doubtless had many highborn guests coming and going every day and would not leave the main approach to his estate in such disrepair. The driver must have brought her the back way under his assumption she was in service. She slipped through the gap and set her bags on the ground. With both hands, she forced the gate shut behind her, then gathered her meagre belongings and headed down the path.

The trees on either side were a jumble of dark, twisting, leafless branches that climbed skyward before converging to form a canopy overhead. The woodland was so dense she could not see far, and she was grateful for the last, weak rays of afternoon sun. Not much of the light made it through the crisscrossing roof of branches, but it was enough for her to see by. Enough to prevent the woods from seeming too sinister and forbidding. No doubt in high summer this forest would provide a pleasant place to walk, full of wildlife and woodland flowers, but now, in the dead of winter, she did not care to venture through it after dusk. At least not unaccompanied.

That was if her cousin's guardianship allowed her such liberty. At home, with only her mother and their maid, Maria, for company, she had enjoyed certain freedoms to which she had grown accustomed. She went out alone on long walks, spoke with whomsoever she pleased, and dressed with scant regard for fashion, keeping to none but the most rigorous conventions for suitable attire. Somehow, she doubted Lord Grovely would look on with an indulgent eye were she to return to the hall with her petticoat muddied, or address a man prior to a formal introduction.

In coming to Brougham Hall, Catherine knew, and her mother had oft repeated, that she would have to curtail her adventurous spirit and pay attention to her manners. During the four weeks prior to her departure, she had studied hard, revising the etiquette she would need to observe while with her cousin and his family. The mere idea of having to obey so many rules was stifling. How much worse would it be once she arrived and had to live by them?

The path continued on and on. The only sounds were the whistle of the wind through the trees and the crunch of dead foliage beneath her feet. The longer she walked, the more Catherine's spirits weighed her down, and her bags, light as they were, seemed a heavy burden. How much farther was it? Had the driver made a mistake? Was this not the correct way? She was beginning to wonder if she should turn back when she noticed a patch of light up ahead, brighter than any that had filtered through previous gaps in the tree line. She scurried towards it, and breathed a sigh of relief when she saw the edge of the wood and the open terrain beyond.

She emerged onto a gravelled driveway flanked by a dead, overgrown lawn. Something glinted in her peripheral vision and she glanced to her left. The sunlight reflected off the surface of a lake and, at the water's edge, a figure stood silhouetted. Catherine was about to call out a greeting, hoping the woman could assist her, but another fierce burst of mirrored light forced her to shield her eyes, and when she looked back, the figure was gone. It must have been a trick of the light. Either that or a hunger-vision. The thought of food made her stomach rumble and, upon reflection, she realised she had not eaten since breaking her fast at dawn. All the more reason to hurry to the house and make the acquaintance of those within before the dinner bell sounded. Turning from the lake, she looked ahead and took in her first view of Brougham Hall.

Lord Grovely's seat was not what she had expected. She had envisaged bright white columns and large windows. In reality, the house rose out of the ground like a lump of dark, misshapen stone. One wing looked closer to current architectural style, but the other appeared more a ruined castle, complete with turret and shadowed ramparts. It probably had been a castle once. She had anticipated a modern residence, fitted with every comfort of the age, but that was an absurd assumption now she thought about it. The Brougham family had resided here for several centuries, so of course, the original hall was old, with additions and repairs carried out in different styles by each subsequent generation.

The quality of the light changed as the sun dipped towards the horizon and, with the thought of dinner forefront in her mind, Catherine pressed on in the direction of the house.

Brougham Hall grew ever larger the closer she got and she acknowledged she had underestimated its size from a distance. It towered to three floors and, though lacking the marble columns she had imagined during her journey, possessed a rundown magnificence. She could imagine it as an illustration in a lurid novel of ancient curses, virginal heroines, and dashing heroes. And to think this was to be her new home. It would take hours to see all the rooms, let alone the gardens and woods.

It was only as she mounted the three steps to the front door that it occurred to her the stagecoach driver had brought her to the main entrance. She reflected again on the rusty, creaking gate and leaf-strewn path. Perhaps Lord Grovely did not entertain often after all. If so, her mother would be sorely disappointed. Although, if Lord Grovely were reclusive, it would explain why he had insisted Catherine make the long journey unaccompanied and why no one had come to meet her upon arrival.

Her mother's parting words came back to her, and remembrance of her duty subdued what initial excitement she had experienced at the thought of exploring the strange house and grounds.

"Ingratiate yourself." Her mother had insisted.

She had advised Catherine to please her relatives in any way possible, in the hope of raising her fortunes. As far as her mother was concerned, this was an excellent opportunity for Catherine to land herself a rich husband. Her mother's final comment as she boarded the coach had been--"Lord knows it would not kill the man to share some of his wealth and connections with his relatives."

Catherine had no plans to carry out her mother's wishes--she was no money-grabber, and thoughts of marriage could not have been farther from her mind--but the commandment lay heavy on her heart and enhanced her lethargy. A year ago, her mother would not have advocated such a plan either. Indeed, Catherine doubted she would have acquiesced to Lord Grovely's request and let Catherine go at all. However, she had been troubled with a lingering illness of late and was anxious to ensure Catherine, her only surviving child, would have financial security and a home when she was gone. Memories of her mother's wan face brought with them a feeling of melancholy and Catherine gave a small shake of her head, trying to dispel such thoughts.

An artist's dreams unlock the veil to an ancient love neither knew they shared, when her drawings show up as tattoos on his body. 
Let's get inked! 
Noah is a budding rock star, but concerns arise when a different tattoo shows up on his body while he sleeps. The mystical images vanish the following night, only to be replaced by new ones the next morning. Noah is worried that the freaky tattoos will tarnish his image. However, when he meets famous music producer, Sid Shady, Noah discovers that anything goes on the path to fame. 
Hayley is an artist and an old soul. Living alone in a home passed down through the family, she loves the simple things in life and her job at the metro art gallery. When she sees her drawings as tattoos on local talent Noah McNally, she's compelled to meet him and uncover the mystery behind his tattoos. 
When Noah and Hayley meet, they feel an instant connection but neither knows why. Her unexpected attraction to him ignites a fire neither can control. She ravishes him in the park one night, much to his delight. As the sparks continue to fly, the hauntings begin. 
A bit of Celtic lore, a determined spirit, and an angry banshee show Noah and Hayley the truth about love--and lies. How can they be in love if they're from totally different worlds--or are they?

The Press Release said it all.

Children of the street. Homeless adults. As you walk by them, have you thought about why they're there? Have you wondered about their hopes and dreams? Has it occurred to you that most want to escape living on the streets and make a better life for themselves?

Nine homeless teens and adults are doing exactly that at Tuck Williams' new Vale Lake Theater. Nine singers, dancers, and musicians, ranging in age from sixteen to fifty, have combined their talents to bring the musical Oliver! to the stage.

The musical is a reflection of their own lives on the street, as it follows one young boy from his miserable existence on the streets of Victorian London while he searches for someone who will love him. Along the way, he forges friendships with others facing the same plight--just as the cast of Oliver! at Vale Lake Theater is doing.

When Diego Champagne realizes that he can't live without Colby Young, he comes up with a plan that will free him from the Banni motorcycle gang forever. He's prepared to leave everything behind and make a new life for the man he loves and the children for whom Colby is now responsible. But he can tell no one, not even Colby, if he hopes to carry it off.

Colby's having problems accepting that if he's to remain the guardian of his niece and nephew, he must stay clear of the Banni, and that means Diego. Given Colby's past, he's being watched like a hawk, and not just by Child Protection Services. Then Colby's world spirals out of control when a member of the Banni informs Colby that they found Diego's body burnt beyond recognition, along with his vest and bike. Miserable and angry at the world, Colby ends up in more trouble, his entire world held together by a thread.

Meanwhile, Diego must fulfill a promise to the leader of the Texas Crushers, who ironically helps him escape from the Banni life. Putting miles and time between him and the man he loves, Diego sets the wheels in motion that will prepare the stage for a crime-free life with Colby and the children. Question is, how will he tell Colby he's not dead, and will Colby ever forgive him for keeping the truth from him?
