One stolen rose leads Billy to the Beast of his dreams
The rose was so perfectly pink, and it was just within reach inside the locked gate.
One snip later, and a masked man from Billy’s darkest fantasies grabbed his arm.
Billy’s punishment? To toil in the estate’s horribly overgrown garden for the summer.
Only this summer job came with a mystery. Who was the sexy, scarred, irascible man who lived at Malfleur, and what dark secret from his past was he hiding?
The Beast believes he deserves his self-imposed exile for the crime he committed one awful, reckless night—a night he can’t even remember.
He believes no one could love the ruin of a man that survived that cursed accident.
He didn’t count on Billy Martin.
Billy & The Beast is a contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast that features a rich playboy recovering from a near-fatal accident, a web of dark secrets and gaslighting, a gothic estate, a happy Labrador retriever, and a plucky young man who adores mysteries & monsters.
It is part of the Ever After, New York series of contemporary gay romance fairy tales, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Red Ridley knows he could have a happy life in Ever After, New York, waiting on tables at Mom and Pop’s, making numbers add up for clients, studying business at the junior college – and maybe, just maybe having the man of his dreams, Mark Woods, the young owner of the local garage. One problem. Red’s gorgeous. Amazing looking. Totally unique.
And no one who sees him – especially his grandmother, who’s his biggest promoter — believes he won’t end up on the cover of a magazine. Gran’s dreams come true when famous New York agency owner, Brock Wolfe, shows up in Ever After and sets his sights on Red.
Red doesn’t want to leave Mark, but Gran has given everything to raise him, and the money he could make would give her a happy, easy life. Then, the news gets worse – Gran could lose her house — so Red breaks down and goes to New York where the Wolfe shows just how bad he can be.
Faced with a fate worse than death, Red needs a hero or needs to be one. Is there any chance to live happily in Ever After?

How much evil can you cook up in one small town?
When your father gets wonky, marries a weird woman, and runs off to Europe, leaving you and your twin holding the bag for the bills, what else can you do but –
Sleep a night in the forest,
Follow a trail of pebbles to a strange mansion,
And succumb to the attraction of cinnamon rolls, the world’s most beautiful piano, and Madame, the strange woman who gives you your dreams for next to nothing.
But fairy tales teach one lesson – when things are too good to be true – run!
Hans Meyer finds that out the hard way, when he wakes up tied to a bed in the dark. Even Rune, the cute guy who buys him root beer floats, isn’t who he seems.
Can piano power, twin power, and a healthy dose of love power overcome the darkness and finally make Hans happy in Ever After?
Holding Hans is a coming-of-age, hidden identity, dysfunctional family, fairy-tale-retelling, contemporary fantasy romance – with really good food.
Note: Though themes are handled delicately and appropriately for a fantasy, the book may have trigger potential for sensitive readers.
