I’m excited to be able to finally announce some very exciting (to me) news! Keira Andrews and I are co-writing a new series of books–Tempting Tales–for Ellora’s Cave. Last fall I did some editing work for Keira on her latest novel, The Chimera Affair, and we enjoyed working with each other so much that we decided to team up on a new line of erotic m/m novellas inspired by fairy and folk tales.
Our vision is that the original legends are a jumping-off point for stories that will take on a life of their own and not merely be the same tales with two male protagonists instead of princesses and damsels. Our tales will not be modernized, but in keeping with the fairy tale tone and style. Some will be whimsical and light, while others darker. All will feature smokin’ hot man sex and happily ever afters.
Just in case you were wondering, this is what I look like when I’m writing. It’s very glamorous.
We’re excited to let you know that the first book in this series will be released soon. The novella is titled “Earthly Desires“, and it is based on the Scottish tale of “The Light Princess”, made famous by George MacDonald. More information will be forthcoming and we’re looking forward to sharing more with you as soon as we have more information on when the book will be available. In the meantime, I’m excited to be able to share the cover (by the wonderful Kendra Egert) with you now!
Keira and I are very inspired by this concept and excited about the series. We can’t wait to bring you more books with fairy and folk tale themes in the future, and we hope you’ll come along to fairyland with us!
What’s your favourite fairy tale? Let us know!

Thanks for the reblog, Patty! 🙂
I’ve always been a huge Sleeping Beauty fan. I don’t even know why. That’s just always been the one I liked. And a bunch of weird ones that were on my Let’s Pretend Records growing up: Snow White and Rose Red was a good one.
Oh, yes, I think we are tackling Sleeping Beauty at some point, for sure. Good choice! Let’s Pretend Records! I don’t think I ever had them myself, but other people did, and they sound so lovely and quaint in the age of digital everything. Thank you for the comment, RCK! And guess what? I get to see you in less than two days! Hooray! (And holy moses, I have so much to do before then!)
Excited! Can’t wait to read! I’m not familiar with the Scottish tale, so am intrigued.
Hooray! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts! I truly hope you enjoy it. I have a great deal of affection for these characters, and I’m hopeful that others will love them, too.
Will let you know for sure. I’ll also get back to you on the Chimera affair, which I read while on my journey in Poland. 🙂 I’ll also review it on Goodreads. Will email the link.
