Ash & Echoes (Blessed Epoch Book 1)
by Augusta Li
For the past few years Yarroway L’Estrella has lived in exile, gathering arcane power, but that power came at a price. Now it’s time for him to do his duty: his uncle, the king, needs him to escort Prince Garith to his wedding, a union that will create an alliance between the two strongest countries in the known world. But Yarrow isn’t the prince’s only guard. A whole company of knights is assigned to the duty, and Yarrow’s not sure he trusts their leader.
Knight Duncan Purefroy isn’t sure he trusts Yarrow either, but after a bizarre occurrence during their travels, they have no choice but to work together—especially since the incident also reveals a disturbing secret, one that might threaten the entire kingdom. But will it ultimately work in their favor?
When a third member joins the precarious alliance, it seems to cement the bonds between all three men. But the arrangement isn’t perfect: Yarrow knows the power inside him and fears getting too close. The mysterious newcomer was raised to believe love and trust are weaknesses. And Duncan struggles to accept them as they are. Saving their home will take everything they have—including the fragile relationship they’ve built.
Snowmancer (Godsbane Prince Book 1)
by Olivia Helling
A future king. A slave’s last hope. Can a sacrifice become something more?
Ilyas wants someone he can trust. As the heir to a great kingdom, all he can count on is the treachery of his younger brothers as he protects his future throne. When he receives his latest spoils of war, he meets a slave who’s different. A slave with a hidden agenda…
Jem is the last chance for his people. Shunned by his brethren, he yearns to save them with an impossible task: kidnap Prince Ilyas and sacrifice him to Jem’s Dark God. Against all odds, he captures the prince and carts him across the frozen wasteland.
Now Jem must keep Ilyas safe for the sacrifice and push down his urges to do more than protect the heir to the throne. Ilyas knows he can’t trust the slave, but he feels like he’s finally found a man he can love. As their attraction builds, they grow closer to a god that could destroy them both.
Snowmancer is an LGBT dark fantasy novella set in a far-off kingdom. If you like unpredictable plot twists, rich descriptions, and tantalizing chemistry, then you’ll love Olivia Helling’s incredible tale of adventure, sacrifice, and love.
