As a frequent H&H visitor, you likely have checked out our collection of Original Stories, featuring Caris Roane, Carolyn Jewel, Daisy Goodwin, and Darynda Jones. While these stories are still available to read for free, they are also now on sale, so you can take your stories with you.
Just visit your favorite online retailer to purchase the digital version so you can support the authors in question while savoring the deliciousness of vampire Militia Warrior Gideon, Elvish King’s Dragon Dal Atul, the American Duchess, and the Grim Reaper (but you can call her Charley).
Caris Roane’s Brink of Eternity:
Brink of Eternity, a Guardians of Ascension novella, tracks vampire Militia Warrior Gideon, who is on the brink of becoming an elite Warrior of the Blood. The Militia Warriors strive to keep the peace on Second Earth while battling death vampires whenever they can.
Brink of Eternity gives us a glimpse into the Militia Warrior world as Gideon breaks all the rules to protect his ex-girlfriend, Elise, during her rite of ascension, a process that puts her directly in the path of a dozen lethal enemies.
Carolyn Jewel, The King’s Dragon:
Carolyn Jewel says: The King’s Dragon is based on a character who wouldn’t leave me alone; a damaged man who has no business being a hero, but is. For the longest time, I didn’t know what to do with him, until I put him in this world.
The setting comes from a Fantasy series I plan to write. The first book is all mapped out— to the extent this seat-of-the-pants writer can plan anything in advance.
There is romance, adventure, men in high boots, magic, politics and, also, hot elves.
Daisy Goodwin, The Duchess’s Tattoo:
Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England.
In The Duchess’s Tattoo, Cora Cash is desperate to be a fashionable lady of society. Despite her title and her wealth, she finds that English society is not that welcoming to “The American Duchess.”
When Cora spies a distinctive snake tattoo on her mother-in-law’s wrist, she decides that she must have one as well. It is up to the talented tattoo artist to save “The American Duchess” from herself.
Darynda Jones, For I Have Sinned:
Darynda Jones revisits the sexy, suspenseful world of supernatural shenanigans she created in her Grave series with For I Have Sinned.
In this Charley Davidson story, Charley helps a woman find out how she died and gives her the closure she needs to pass through to the other side.
