Another week, another bash at Seductive Studs and Sirens. Just click on the picture for the list of participants – authors with snippets of their work or bloggers with posts relevant to LGBT fiction or wider issues.
Last week I was reading Masked Riders by Parhelion, one of the most mysterious and secretive authors of LGBT fiction. [The end of the book was just as terrific as the beginning by the way]. This week I am reading a book by a very nice lady whom I have actually met in person who has one of the best known hats in LGBT fiction – Jordan Castillo Price. I have started reading her series of vampire novels, Channeling Morpheus, beginning with Payback.
These stories are a lot more erotic than I would normally go for. Again I want to repeat that I don’t disapprove of erotica, it just doesn’t hold my attention – much as someone desperate to read the next sex scene might allow their mind to wander during a clever description of field stripping an AK47, to which I would be glued making notes.
So vampire erotica – not normally my cup of tea but JCPs language, her flashes of humour, her superb descriptions keep me interested and focused, if not actually aroused. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of vengeance that doesn’t go quite the way the protagonist expects it to and will follow the rest of the adventures of Michael and Wild Bill, with enthusiasm. Highly recommended especially if you like your fiction a bit on the scorchy side. 🙂 Click on the cover to be taken to the Channeling Morpheus website.
