Hello! We're finally getting some relief today from the heat here in Ohio. Among my favorite books I've written are those in The Sleepless City series. Last month Anne Barwell re-released the first book, Shades of Sepia and in a few day the second book, Electric Candle (written by me) will be re-released into the big wide world.
Today's snippet is from Electric Candle.

Blair sat, put both hands flat on the table and asked, “What can you tell me about how this bond works? Forge said you thought there was some kind of evolutionary benefit.”
“I’d know a lot more if I could get these journals of Declan’s translated. Forge’s French isn’t that good, and mine is pretty much nonexistent. Declan has translated some, but not all of them.”
“It seems everywhere I turn, I’m roadblocked by Declan, and I’ve never even met the guy.”
Lucas laughed. “I’ve never met him either, but I’ve read enough to be impressed. He was a French aristocrat who abandoned everything to come to what was the new world, a place completely wild and unknown. He left so he could live a life where he didn’t have to hide who he was. Being gay wasn’t an option in sixteenth century France. He was a kid, something like fourteen when he got on a ship full of pirates to come here.”
