READ MY REVIEW

Blurb

’Twas the night before Christmas, but what’s stirring is a little more dangerous than a mouse.

Taviano is nearly two hundred years old and never wakes in the same place twice. Weary and jaded, the vampire still indulges in memories of childhood Christmases in Naples. He lingers in shadow, spying on mortals as they enjoy the holiday.

When Taviano spots a handsome young man in Boston loaded down with presents and about to be mugged, he can’t help but intervene. Soon he’s talking to joyous, naïve, strong-willed and funny Paul, a short-order cook who raised funds to buy Christmas presents for LGBTQ children. Before he knows what’s happened, Taviano is wrapped up in Paul’s arms and then in his scheme to get the presents delivered by Christmas morning.

A vampire turned into a Christmas elf… What could go wrong?

Vampire Claus is a 30,000-word standalone gay romance about a lonely vampire and a fearless mortal with no instinct for self-preservation. A heartwarming ending, no cliffhanger, and a young man who discovers he has a thing for fangs. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about?

Over the river and through the woods, to a vampire’s lair we go.…

Paul and Taviano approach their first Thanksgiving, happy together but wary. Paul frets he’ll one day die and leave Taviano alone, but the demon that shares Taviano’s body won’t even consider turning Paul into a vampire. On top of that, Paul is coming up on the third anniversary of the day his parents kicked him out for being gay. He’s planning a Friendsgiving to distract himself but, wouldn’t you know it, he gets kidnapped first by an unknown vampire.

Taviano frantically searches for his beloved human with the help of some unexpected allies: A newly-turned college student and a vampire doctor who works the graveyard shift at a hospital. Meanwhile, Paul is taunted by a creepy-ass vampire in a terrible track suit who hints he’s important to her mysterious plan. Oh, and the guy who kidnapped him in the first place? Spoiler alert: it’s Bronislav, the Russian vamp who turned Taviano over 170 years ago. What the hell is going on, and what is “the alchemist’s riddle” his captors keep nattering about?

The answer to those questions could change everything Paul and Taviano thought they knew about their love and their future together. Fated mates, a huge age gap (like, 150 years), ancient myths, a found family, a bit of gore — that’s what a holiday should be, right?

Fangsgiving is the second novella in the gay romance trilogy HOLIDAYS SUCK! that began with Vampire Claus. This book can stand alone but is better as part of the ongoing story of Paul and Taviano.

It features a heartwarming, happy-for-now ending for a vampire, a young man with a surprising family tree, and the weirdest gathering for a Friendsgiving the world has ever seen.

Goblin Twins Cover

Blurb

What do you do when you have nothing to give and everything to lose?

Twin goblin princes Shi’chen and A’bbni Er-Ha’sen did not ever plan to take the Emperor’s throne. Older twin Shi’chen is a military prodigy, and younger twin A’bbni is studying to be a physician. But when their father attempts and fails to overthrow their cousin, the murderous crown prince, the brothers are accused of taking part in a rebellion they know nothing about.

Forced to flee for their lives, the twins find that not everything is what it seems in the goblin empire of Hanenea’a. With the help of only a half-elf sailor and a handful of nobles, the brothers must confront the Emperor and his supporters, risking everyone they love for one chance to save it all.

The Goblin Twins is a debut m/m non-magic fantasy novel with romance from Kit Barrie. This is the first book of The Goblin Twins duology, and the first of a collection of stories set in the lands of Hanenea’a and Kendarin. I

t has all the angst but does have a Happy For Now ending with no cliffhanger. It does not contain twincest.

Please mind the author’s note on the first page, as this book contains sensitive material and is also not intended for children. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt

A taller goblin passed by Shi’chen and gave a small smirk that curled his thin lip up with disdain. “Good day, Captain Er-Ha’sen.”

“Good day,” Shi’chen said, barely giving him a glance out of the corner of his eye.

The older man came to a stop on his other side, silently watching the sparring for a moment. “And how is your brother today?” he asked, his voice light and full of innocence.

Shi’chen gritted his teeth, his fingers clenching around the shaft of his spear. “Did you need something, Captain Hin-Ve’ssa?”

“Just making conversation,” the older Captain said.

Shi’chen pulled his helmet and sand silk veil off so he could glare into the man’s hawk-yellow eyes with his own ember-orange ones. “Do not play me for a fool, Hi’jan.”

“Of course not, Your Highness,” Hi’jan said with a small, mock bow. “I know I could never play you.” He was silent for a long moment before he leaned in a bit closer so only the shorter Captain could hear him. “Of course, your brother is much easier.” Shi’chen’s eyes flashed, and Hi’jan laughed softly. “Ah, come now, Your Highness, surely you don’t think the whole palace doesn’t know that your brother will spread his legs for any pretty face. Even yours.”

Shi’chen hissed through his teeth and pushed his shield out of the way with his foot before leveling his spear toward Hi’jan. “You will watch your mouth, Captain.” The title came out as a growl.

Apparently Hi’jan had been expecting this reaction, because he immediately dropped into a fighting stance, pulling his short sword from his belt. “I’d like to see you make me, Captain.” He shifted, and Shi’chen only had a moment to realize that Hi’jan was moving so the sunlight hit him in the eyes before charging at him to try to close the distance. He dodged back, using his spear to keep Hi’jan at bay. The taller man moved quickly, avoiding the tip of the spear as his own blade whistled closer and closer to the smaller goblin with little regard for the places his armor protected. Shi’chen used his spear to block a strike from the short sword, thrusting it at Hi’jan, being careful not to do more than just drive him back with it. Hi’jan seemed to be showing no such caution, circling Shi’chen and darting in with his blade before moving back again when Shi’chen knocked it aside.

Shi’chen registered in the back of his mind that the sounds of others fighting had faded away except for the clash of his own weapon with Hi’jan’s, and the guards had all turned to watch them. Jeers and shouts of encouragement rang out from the assembly as they watched the two Captains dodge and thrust. Damn it all to the gods, why had he let Hi’jan taunt him into attacking him in front of their companies? But it was too late to stop it now.
