ag-640






Synopsis

Dylan Matthews lives in a world of fantasy. As a video game designer, there are no limits on how far or wide his imagination could stretch. He loves his work and excels at bringing the visions in his head to a game console. The luck of his Irish heritage seems to touch him when his prototype Zombie ApoXalypse is bought days after he inherits a mansion in the heart of the Appalachian mountains. Life is indeed magical.

Ansleigh has waited centuries for one man, only to find him and then lose him due to his own inability to trust in their burgeoning love. The magick of Mother Earth flows within him and through him allowing him to nourish the Grotto where he makes his home. Yet, he yearns for the male that nurtures his soul. When the whims of Fate bring his Cosantoir back into his life, does he have the courage to accept his heritage?

 As the fantasies in his head become reality and the monsters of nightmares crawl through the forest, can Dylan forgive broken promises to protect the Croi? There is no pause button when the Fae and human worlds collide. Will Dylan have what it takes to master the maze and win Ansleigh’s freedom?

4 - Redemption - A time to plant, a time to reap




Depression hit while he sped down the highway, with an added dose of fear as he watched a trooper's car approach. When it passed him without the trooper taking a second glance, the fear abated but the depression didn't.

"How the hell did I get myself into this position," he muttered to himself.

He knew the answer, greed. Not for money—that had never been something he'd craved—but for his family's respect. He'd never had it growing up, as hard as he'd tried. He'd been an average student in high school, passing with the minimum needed in terms of grades to get him into Tulane. Once there, he'd struggled with his studies, making it out with his accounting degree in hand. His family hadn't even come down for his graduation.

While at Tulane he'd met Williams' youngest daughter. A pretty girl who'd managed to get involved in the casual drug scene to spite her father. She had taken to him and he'd liked her well enough in a pitying way to help her get back on her feet and off the drugs. When Williams found out, he'd offered him a job after graduation as a way of thanking him for what he'd done.

He'd taken it, finally earning some small amount of approval from his family. The approval that he had desperately craved by then. He'd soaked it up. In their eyes though, it still wasn't enough. Until he settled down, married, and created a family of his own he would never earn their full blessing.

Therefore, knowing that Williams' daughter thought he walked on water for saving her, and adored him as a result, he'd done the unconscionable and asked her to marry him. It wasn't until the last moment—as he was putting on the fancy tuxedo in the posh suite at the hotel where they were holding the wedding—that he realized he could not go through with it. He didn't love her; in fact, he wasn't all that certain he even liked her very much.

He'd torn off the tuxedo, pulled on the clothes he'd arrived in, and taken off. For once in his life he knew he was doing the right thing, thinking of someone else besides himself and his needs.

As a result, he was now riding hell bent for leather back to the one place where he felt he might find safety. And just perhaps, discover who and what he really was under all the emotional garbage he'd been carrying since he'd begun thinking that how his family felt about him mattered more than life itself.

Excerpt



Beginning to panic, Rhys went outside again. He had no idea what to do. It occurred to him that he could probably ask a British tourist for help. He would certainly be willing to help someone in his own position if they asked. But after an hour searching the immediate area and asking one or two locals, it became clear that hikers set off very early from the town. He was unlikely to find any until the evening.

'What am I going to do? Oh, God, this is a nightmare. Someone has to help me.' Rhys made his way back to the spot where he had gotten off the bus, hoping that there might be another one coming in at some point during the day. He waited and waited and none came. He tried to remember what he’d read in the Rough Guide about arriving in Cuzco, but the only thing that came to mind was that the night-bus was the quickest transport.

Rhys was desperate for water and he decided to head back to the hotel where he’d used the phone and ask if they would let him have some. If not, he thought he could sneak back into the toilets and drink from the wash basin, although that certainly wouldn’t be ideal. He doubted washing water would be safe to drink.

He wandered across the street, wiping sweaty palms on the legs of his shorts. He was unaware of the car as he stepped into its path and he jumped as it honked loudly. He stumbled out of the way and his boot caught on an uneven patch in the tarmac. In the next second he found himself on his ass in the dust. The car stopped and the driver threw the door open. Rhys shuffled backward and looked up as the man climbed out of the vehicle and stared at him.

“Sorry,” Rhys mumbled. The man responded with a short phrase that included the word esta, which he thought was Spanish, but he couldn’t be sure. He shook his head slowly.

“You…okay?”

“Yes. Thanks. Sorry.” Rhys nodded to emphasize his reply. A large, caramel-colored hand reached out to him, its owner stooping slightly. Rhys stared at the hand, then let his eyes drift along a muscular but not enormous arm to the short sleeve of a blue T-shirt. Finally his gaze reached the stranger’s face and he took in chiseled features, high cheekbones, collar-length black hair and dark brown eyes. He didn’t look Peruvian. He was too tall and…he was gorgeous.

Rhys’s pulse quickened more and he gulped nervously. He remembered then that the man was offering his hand in assistance and he grasped it quickly. A strong pull and Rhys was back on his feet. He extricated his hand and brushed dust from his shorts.

“Thanks,” he said again.

“You American?” the hunk asked, his voice heavily accented.

“No, English,” said Rhys. “From England.”

The man grinned, flashing very white teeth. “Your name?”

“It’s Rhys,” he answered breathlessly.



“Rafael. From Brazil.” The name of the country sounded like Bra-zeel. Rhys realized the words he spoke before must have been Portuguese.

About the author

Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the Church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy. Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered Fan Fiction in her late twenties.
Posting stories based on some of her favorite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.
Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad Dobermann, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races into the house afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.
Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and joy, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.
