Changeling COVER


When a fae changeling on the run is forced to hunker down with a grumpy incubus, will enemies become lovers or is an ancient curse too much for them to bear?

Dominus—an incubus who runs a brothel called The Twig & Berries—is bored with his life and customers alike.

Sebastian—a changeling faerie swapped at birth for a human infant—is reeling with the knowledge of his true heritage. Unsafe among humans, he travels north to meet others of his kind.

But danger lurks, and when Sebastian is forced to hunker down with Dominus for safe harbor, the tension between them flares hot.

Sebastian is the only person that’s piqued Dominus’s interest in ages, but he’s fae. And Dominus has reason to despise faeries.

Forced together as trespassers infiltrate the territory, will enemies become lovers or will a curse keep them apart forever?

Changeling is an MM Paranormal Fantasy Romance featuring enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, a steamy love story, lamb on a stick, and surprise visitors from other novels. If you enjoyed Beneath the Opal Arc, this book’s for you.



A creature strolls into the room so stunning I must blink to be sure he’s real.

Aside from the massive horns and gently swaying tail, he doesn’t look like any demon I’ve ever imagined. He’s gorgeous, with gray-dappled lavender skin, and he’s huge—taller than me even without considering the coiled horns that add another foot to his already astounding height.

His sapphire blue eyes, sparkling with an interest that rivals my own, catch my gaze. Silver brows—the same color as his long braided hair—arch to elegant crescents high on his forehead.

“What treasure has arrived at my door this morning?” A sly smile forms across lush pink lips. His skin is simply otherworldly, shining with an aromatic oil spread from neck to toes.

I inhale the fragrance of a bouquet of fresh spring blossoms plucked to gift a lover.

“Dominus, meet Sebastian, who finds himself in need of safe harbor.” Ivaz makes a sweeping gesture from him to me. “Sebastian, meet Dominus, who’s agreed to take you in.”

I let my gaze wander over the length of him. Practically naked, he wears only a sheer shift of shimmering fabric the color of ripe plums. It’s pulled tight over each hardened nipple, crossing just above his pierced belly button, then draping loosely around his lean waist and bulging thighs. Silver strappy sandals adorn his otherwise bare feet, the toenails painted purple to match the shift. Amethysts dangle from each ear.

Dominus is a glittering jewel of a man—of an incubus, I suppose. His attention brushes over me like a touch, grazing my skin and bristling the little hairs on my neck in its wake. We stare at each other until I remember my manners.

Clearing my throat, I extend my hand. “Thank you for offering me shelter.”

Dominus takes it within his larger one, his grip soft and warm. “My pleasure.” He brings my hand to his lips and presses a kiss to the backs of my fingers.

I’m baffled by the boldness of the gesture, wondering how he knows I prefer men. It’s usually a back-and-forth dance of daring mixed with self-preservation to determine whether another fellow might be like-minded, but Dominus doesn’t hesitate in the slightest.

To my chagrin, heat sears across my cheeks. Surely they’re pink as petals. I’m not often so taken by another person, but Dominus is a magnificent presence. His energy steals all the space in the room, spins it to his will, and returns it much improved upon for having been under his control.

My tongue is thick and heavy in my mouth, but I force it to work before I look like an idiot ogling him. “I’ve never met an incubus before.”

“And I’ve never met such a charming…” He studies me, eyes raking over my lean form.

I open my mouth to answer, my flush deepening under his scrutiny, but he shakes his head.

“No, let me guess. It’s more fun. Wood sprite?”

His guess brings a grin to my face. “There are wood sprites?”

“Ah, so not a wood sprite, then.” He leans in close to me and reaches for my hair. “May I?”

I bite my cheek and give a little nod. He takes a lock of my hair and curls it through his fingers. Then he sniffs.

“Hmm, not a shifter. At least not one I recognize.” His eyes sparkle with a new idea. “A jinn? But are you benevolent or malevolent?”

“I’m not that either. What’s a jinn?”

Dominus purses his lips, still twirling my hair. “Not a jinn. Hmm.”

Ivaz groans before Dominus can answer my question. “Glad to see the two of you hitting it off. Now where do we sleep?”

“Has our new guest worn you out already, old man?” Dominus says to Ivaz.

“Hardly,” Ivaz scoffs. “But I have a letter to write before dawn.”

“This way.” Dominus extends his elbow to me, and I take it. His muscles flex beneath my fingertips.

We head down a narrow hallway with decorated silk drapes hung crisscrossed over the ceiling and pass several doors on each side. Just how big this place, and how many people sleep within these rooms? In the quiet, I hear only the thumping of my heart and our soft steps muted by layers of thick rugs.

We stop by one of the doors. Dominus uses his free hand to push it open. He glances to Ivaz. “Here you are.”

“Thank you.” Ivaz steps over the threshold.

I gasp as Dominus’s tail circles my waist and tugs me closer to his side. It’s not unwelcome, but it’s quite surprising.

“Sorry,” he says, sounding anything but. “It has a mind of its own sometimes.”

Malcolm gets a redemption arc and I’m all for it

59829887._SY475_Hardwood by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Right, well, I didn’t think that I would ever feel sorry for Malcolm but there you go!

Sam and Fawkes managed to completely 180 my opinion of the incubus who’d been a thoroughly unpleasant chap in both of his half-brothers’ books with this tale of danger and daring do.

Kostas, now him I loved from the start. He’s a siren who’s turned his back on the more vicious side of his kind’s nature and is now working behind the bar of a dodgy nightclub when he comes across Malcolm.

Their brief encounter isn’t the best but when Kostas sees Malcolm in trouble a few hours later, his good nature means he can’t just let it go. What occurs then is one of those insta-love/blindsided by the fated mate-y narratives that had me smiling.

I’ve only not given it 5* because, like Declan’s story, it all seemed to end rather abruptly – although very happily!

A return to Lyric and an incubus with a water dragon issue!

59531979._SY475_Wyrmwood by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A book of two halves and what felt like a missing middle bit.

The opening was fabulous, our reclusive half incubus half nymph Declan needs to go for a swim.

While he’s on his way out to the ocean, he fails to take proper notice of the “human” sat on the beach.

Only it’s not a human, it’s Augustus the water dragon in his bipedal form and he’s realised Declan’s his mate.

There then ensues a really lovely section of the book where August is utterly clueless, Declan is angry, then despondent, then resigned.

It’s funny, sweet and a little bit angsty as they completely fail to communicate. I particularly loved the introduction of August’s father William inside an enchanted sword, part of his soul magicked when he was at the end if his human lifespan.

We hit the part where they “separate” as August realises he has to let Declan go because he won’t ever be happy.

It was heartfelt, heartbreaking, I was sad and wondering how the authors were going to reconnect the pair of them, so inexperienced in relationships as they were.

And then it seemed to turn into a different book 😁 suddenly there was a new plotline out of left field, a bit of suspense, some daring do, and our heroes were madly in love!

It’s not that it was bad, on the contrary I was utterly delighted, I’d have just liked a teeny bit more built up to it.

Also, this one was oddly only low steam, which with an incubus who’s suddenly found his life mate, you’d have expected the on page romps to be uber sexy.

Still, all in all, another enjoyable outing from this pair of authors who remain two of my absolute favourites for paranormal romance.

And another epic cover from Natasha Snow ❤😍
