Rainbow Advent Calendar
Tuesday, 5th December 2017
From 1st December through Christmas Eve, a group of LGBT+ authors I am a part of will offer you a selection of FREE seasonal short stories.
This event is our way to thank you for your continuous support and to promote our chosen charities.
The cause of Stonewall—an organisation that promotes equality and fights prejudice in the UK—is close to my heart. If you are able and inclined to make a donation, you can do so here.
My contribution for this year’s Rainbow Advent Calendar is a tale titled
BLESSING and LIGHT, set in my fantasy Order Universe.
Every soul deserves a blessing on the Night of Winter Lights…
It’s the Night of Winter Lights. Heedless of the holiday, the Commander of the H’Aren fortress, Captain Torýn Torhdhar, seems to find his satisfaction in work. Such occurrence hardly surprises his Orderly, Sæbastyn Hyago, even though the young Lieutenant has spent a silent, aching decade wishing his superior officer would pursue pleasure elsewhere—specifically in his arms. But as the evening continues, nothing about it meets Sæbastyn’s expectations. Will the Lieutenant see his secret desires realised, or his heart shattered?

If you have enjoyed Sæbastyn and Torýn’s story, you might also like The Poison Within, which is a novelette set in the same universe.
Black clouds of xenophobia gather over Radvadur, the western province of the Empire. The political climate is strained and fragile. A surge of Nymph refugees has stirred widespread hostility towards non-humans. When the investigation of a gruesome triple murder linked to the refugee camp ensues, it takes Inspector Käyru Skaer and his lover, Count Ellydhar Finn-Jánn, along an unusual path, at the end of which a precious gift awaits. Käyru and Elly are worlds apart in social standing, but they have found common ground in the bedroom—up against the wall and the stable doors, too. The arrangement between them ought to have been temporary and of no consequence. As their circumstances change, will they find the courage to risk their hearts? (Warning: Contains mentions of off page sexual assault)
