Landlocked Heart #4 out March 13th

theisleofeternalhappiness400Landlocked Heart  Book 4 – The Isle of Eternal Happiness is out soon. You can pre-order at a special price now from Less Than Three Press.

Blurb: After several months of wedded life, Ben is feeling the pressure. Not only has he a job and marriage to worry about, he has to sustain Lyle’s waning magical powers and see through the destiny of the Dragon Rider and save Lyle’s merfolk family in their hour of need.

Lyle’s concerned that Ben is changing for the worse, acting secretively and strangely. With Ben rapidly developing powers of his own, Lyle suspects Ben is being corrupted by the sinister legacy of Prince Clewell, whose magic sword Ben has inherited. If not, their marriage is failing.

Ben tries to pacify Lyle by whisking him off on a belated honeymoon. But Ben’s true purpose is to seek a hidden fairy sanctuary, “The Isle of Eternal Happiness,” and to fulfil the Dragon Rider prophecy. He’s even invited Lyle’s dragon-shifting sister, Cully, to help him in Lyle’s stead. Lyle finally snaps. Ben’s mission might be a noble one, but magic is turning him into a monster. And Lyle is still a force to be reckoned, even with his health and powers deteriorating.

The Landlocked Heart series is available from Less Than Three Press, Amazon, Amazon.co.uk, Kobo, Smashwords, and Siren Bookstrand.

 


Landlocked Heart (part one) – paperback release!

20171021_132219Landlocked Heart (Volume One) is out in paperback. The book contains the first two novels, The Lonely Merman and Lyle’s Story. It’s available from Less Than Three Press or you can order it from amazon here 🙂

THE LONELY MERMAN It’s Friday afternoon, and the last thing Ben wants to be doing is trudging through a wet forest in search of a public hazard. But duty calls, and turns out more exciting than Ben imagined when he encounters a magical ruin, an enchanted pool, and Lyle—a merman who’s cursed to be landlocked many miles from the sea. Lyle is flamboyant and exciting—he’s got tentacles, for goodness sake!—and Ben falls hard. But Lyle’s been hurt before and finds trust difficult, refusing even to reveal how to break the curse that imprisons him. Ben’s just an ordinary guy, and can’t help wondering if he can ever be the hero Lyle needs.

LYLE’S STORY Lyle, a merman, and Ben, his human, work together in a seaside ice-cream parlour and their life together is bliss. Or would be, if not for Ben’s constant worries about career and money, and Lyle’s dark past—a myriad of secrets, lies, wild magic, and foul deeds, which now threaten to catch up with him. When Lyle’s merfolk family accuse him of murder, Ben and Lyle’s bond is stretched to the limit. Not only does Lyle seem unsuited to Ben’s dreams of domestic happiness, his magical powers are spinning dangerously out of control. Even Lyle isn’t entirely sure he’s innocent.

The whole series (so far) is available here.

The series tells the saga of Ben, a mild-mannered environmental officer, and Lyle, a flamboyant merman with a tragic past. Its got magic, shapeshifting, tentacle-like fins (!), cute romance, a ton of pain and angst, and a light sprinkling of lovemaking. In latter books, it’s also got the odd dragon hanging around…

Anyway, please behold the lovely cover and scroll down for more info…
