Aggy Stephenson is a funeral bidder, hand-delivering invitations to funerals in the latest fashion among city elite. His work takes him to the house of Laurel St. John, a man as handsome as he is rich, and as frequently bereaved. Despite the circumstances of their meeting, Aggy quickly falls for Laurel’s strange thrall. But they stand on either side of a barrier: wealth, status—and death.

Dilettante, socialite, and vampire, little surprises Laurel—until he meets Aggy. But Laurel isn’t the only creature with his eye on Aggy, and not everyone is restricted to hunting at night. When Aggy misses a delivery, Laurel wonders if his love has tired of a life of darkness. Then Aggy’s name appears on the list of the nearly departed intended for Laurel’s plate, and the sun isn’t enough to stop Laurel’s wrath.

Can Aggy and Laurel keep walking the thin line between the living and the dead? Or will the city force them to choose between existence—and each other?

About the Author

Parker Foye (they/them) writes speculative-flavoured romance under the QUILTBAG umbrella and believes in happily ever after, although sometimes their characters make achieving this difficult.

An education in Classics nurtured a love of heroes, swords, monsters, and beautiful people doing stupid things while wearing only scraps of leather. You’ll find those things in various guises in Parker’s stories, along with kissing (very important) and explosions (very messy). And more shifters than you can shake a stick at.

Parker lives in Oxford, UK, and travels regularly via planes, trains, and an ever-growing library.
