Here are links to Midnight Conquest (Book 1), Midnight Captive (Book 2), Midnight Hunt (Book 3), Midnight Savior (Book 5) & Midnight Deliverer (Book 6) Chandler's Court is a Male/Male romance and a spin-off tale from Midnight Eclipse (Book 4).
Blurb & Extras:
Chandler Hunter committed the most heinous of crimes—at least according to his father Axel: He fell in love with another man. And yet when the new heir to the Finfolk kingdom is rumored to have a soft spot for men, Axel uses Chandler’s affinity for the same sex as a political tool for gain. As son of the Norse Moon Wolf chieftain, Chandler is sent as ambassador for the clan to regain peace…and perhaps earn a few favors.
Cóemgein* Haraldr’s father may be dead, but his circumstances haven’t changed. He’s still expected to marry a woman he despises and shoulder responsibilities from which he’s never been able to escape. But when Chandler Hunter comes crashing into his life, Cóemgein is not only determined to win the sexy wolf shifter’s heart, if he has to, he’ll risk the entire kingdom.
Chandler and Cóemgein are caught in the middle of a treacherous political plot that could risk the lives of each of their clans. They must sacrifice their rekindled love for the sake of all, but that may end up destroying them both.
Reader Advisory: This is a male/male romance and not only has an intriguing paranormal mystery plot, but super-hot sex between two irresistible alpha male heroes (RAWR!).
*Cóemgein – pronounced kaow-min
Genre/Category: paranormal mystery, shifter male/male romance

Chandler Hunter is the gay brother of Celina Hunter, our heroine (aka Davina) in Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles. Chandler has been hounding me (pun intended) to tell his story since I briefly mentioned the affair that broke his heart in Book 4. When I originally formed the fleeting idea of Chandler having an previous love affair that broke his heart, I really had no idea who or what his former lover would be except that he would be supernatural.
I had done some research on Orkney Folklore and stumbled upon a race of amphibious people who had a vanishing island – the Finfolk. They're kinda like mermaids but not really, but they have sorcerers and are not liked very much by humans. My husband and I started throwing around ideas…and Chandler's story was born! What started out as a novella idea with a limited plot has developed into a full-novel idea with a mystery to be solved! I'm pretty excited about this story and I know many of my subscribers have expressed an interest in male/male romance. I've been writing back and forth between this story and Midnight Deliverer (Book 6), but I honestly don't have a release date for this yet.
For those of you who are not fond of the idea of reading a male/male romance…fear not! This story does not directly affect the storyline of the main series, very similar to the way I set up Frostbitten Hearts. Chandler's Court will be a stand-alone novel, so you don't need to read it as part of the main series and you shouldn't really be missing anything.
I also plan on releasing a story for Jericho, Chandler and Celina's older brother, but he's not really bugging me to write his story right now, so I can't say when that will happen either. His story will be a male/female romance. Oooo…or maybe I can make it a menage story. Hrmmmmm…..
