To celebrate the release of my new book, Coral Were His Bones, I’m going to be posting a month’s worth of things about selkies. Coral is a m/m paranormal erotica novel about Finn, a selkie who’s in love with his childhood sweetheart Devon, but bound in a magical contract to a cruel master. It’s a story of modern magic, snark, sex, and how to heal when everything hurts.
For my last day of selkie books, I’ve got three author Loose Id authors to feature. Yes, there are four of us from the same publisher writing m/m selkie erotica! Is that enough to officially call it a sub-genre?
Spindrift by Jules Jones
When myth comes to life, love becomes legendary…
Writer Richard Dunn’s managed to get himself accepted by the fishermen in the village he lives in for half the year. Just how well accepted he doesn’t realize, until the night he stumbles on an argument involving a local man he hasn’t met before–and finds himself asked to give a silkie a bed for the night.
Niall is a silkie. A creature of legend–a seal, able to become human by removing his skin and to become seal again by slipping it back on. That’s a bit of a problem, since Niall’s seal-skin has been stolen by a man in love with Niall’s sister. The thief will only give it back in exchange for his sister’s, which means he’s trapped in human form. Unless he betrays her, or his friends find his skin.
Trapped ashore, with no official identity and no bank accounts, Niall needs a refuge. His human friends think that a wealthy writer with a known ability to respect other people’s secrets might be just the ticket. All the better that both of them are gay and single…
But Richard’s only too aware of the legends of silkie women abducted and forced to marry land men. It’s hard to ignore the old tale, when one of the fishermen has just made a bid to re-enact it. It’s not an example Richard wants to follow. He’s determined to help Niall get his skin back, even if it costs him the love of a lifetime.”
Under His Skin 1: Tease by Mina Kelly
“When Barnabas rescues a stranger from a storm, he knows he’s in for a tempestuous time. Lust wars with more altruistic feelings to paralyze Barnabas until the stranger makes the first move for him — and then there’s no stopping either of them.
Inside, outside, against the wall, and even occasionally on the bed. But Barnabas starts to wonder if the sex is a distraction from something more important, something his English language challenged new lover isn’t saying. When the truth is finally revealed, the betrayal cuts deep, and for Barnabas, it may be too little, too late.”
The Brotherhood 10: Salt of the… Earth? by Willa Okati
“Alex is hot, he’s hip, and he knows how to play the dating game. A former male escort and current valet, his firm look but don’t touch policy is wreaking havoc on his personal life. He’s out at Amour Magique with one goal in mind: find someone absolutely down to earth, have a fabulous night, and hopefully get laid.
What he finds is Dylan.
Dylan, with his sparkling green eyes, impish sense of humor and fascination with sports is exactly what Alex wants. They’re set to have a wonderful time when Alex discovers that the man he thought was the salt of the earth isn’t actually from terra firma at all.
And Alex knows what kind of creature Dylan is.
