a look at ‘String of Pearls’ by E.D.Parr #Gay #Romance @parr_books @evernightpub

Thank you for
inviting me to your blog today with new release MM romance,
String of Pearls

The story is set in the same SciFi fantasy city as last
year’s release, The
Indigo Vaughn, the warlock head of security, features in the
story along with a new cast of characters. When I wrote The Dreamboat, I
already had the new characters in my head along with their story. Tobias Mars
and Dante Pepper, the elite space pilots for the royal court, very nearly made
an appearance in The Dreamboat, but because that story is about Indigo at last
finding love, I decided they needed their own story.
Once upon a time Dante and Tobias were close to becoming
lovers, but Dante met Viridian and fell in love. Tobias has yet to meet his
love when String of Pearls, opens. He’s a man of high integrity, handsome,
caring, but also longing for love and sex. String of Pearls is his love story.

Handsome, elite space pilot, Tobias Mars is completing a
special mission, when on a water planet, recently ravaged by space pirates, he
discovers Dreft Hann hiding and injured in the sand dunes.
There’s instant attraction between the two men, but
honorable Tobias believes the fact Dreft is in his care precludes him from
showing his growing love for the young man. What’s worse is his shocking
discovery of Dreft’s real identity. Even so, Tobias can’t deny his feelings for
When head of royal security, powerful warlock, Indigo Vaughn
discovers Dreft’s secret, he anticipates trouble.
As beautiful Dreft falls in love with Tobias and dreams of
joining the elite pilot squad, trouble is brewing from someone in Dreft’s past.
Will love finally win with so many obstacles in Tobias and
Dreft’s path?
Warning, the book contains MM sex, MMM sex, gay anal sex, MM

Mars gazed at Dreft lying on top of the bed in room ten of the infirmary.
Hari’s treatment had worked wonders and not only on Dreft’s wounds. Hari had
cleaned Dreft up. His hair, now a dirt-free glossy hazelnut brown was brushed
back to show off the handsome planes of his face. Hari had replaced Dreft’s
strange boy-like clothes with the infirmary’s grey cotton pants and t-shirt. The man was, as his colleague, Dante,
put it, deliciously pretty. For a fleeting moment, Tobias wondered what it
would be like to kiss those perfect lips and hold that muscular body to his
own. He shook the thought away.

shuffled up the bed to sit. “Thank you so much for helping me, sir.”

to call me sir. How are you feeling?”

handsome man’s eyes held gratitude. “I’m so much better. Thank you. I noticed
the insignia on your jacket, sir.”

one of the queen’s pilot explorers. I guess you could call us the elite unit.
All the same, call me Tobias. I’d like that.”

heard that you have to be aristocracy to be chosen for the unit. Is that true?”

little frown creased between Tobias’s eyes. “Have you? Where’d you hear that?”
A spike of worry prevented him from answering with the truth. His intense
security training from the warlock, Indigo Vaughn, threw a question into his
mind. Could Dreft be a rival court’s spy
or even assassin?

I mean no harm. I heard a lot of things during my years as a slave.” Dreft’s
voice held anxiety. His blue eyes clouded.

Dreft’s unease, a wave of kindness softened Tobias’s look and tone. “How long
were you a slave?” He remembered Hari’s description of the scars on Dreft’s

passed in Dreft’s eyes. “Five years—I’ve been a slave since I was stolen from
my home when I was eighteen. I, I’d become desperate, hence the leap from the
ship when we cruised reasonably low to take water from the lake on the planet
where you rescued me.” His voice cracked a little.

watched fear replace the sadness in the young man’s eyes. He wanted to lighten
the mood. “Hey, are you hungry? I bet Hari hasn’t given you breakfast and I’ve
not eaten yet. Do you feel up to a little walk? My home isn’t far. I have loads
of food—fruit, pancakes, savory pastries, and coffee. What do you say?”

“I’m very hungry.”

stood and pushed the chair away from the bed. He held out his arm for Dreft to
take and helped him stand. “Hang on. You have no shoes.” Tobias left Dreft
perched on the side of the bed. He went to the closet inset at the end of the wall and brought back a pair
of felt slip-ons for Dreft.

He probably burned what you were

gesture of support.”

doors down from Dante’s and he walked slowly favoring Dreft’s halting steps.

* Paul Stanton thought he had it all, a great job, a beautiful condo and a stable relationship with his boss, but when his lover dumps him for another man, Paul is forced to rethink his life. Rather than spend the holidays alone in San Francisco he visits his childhood home in rural Pennsylvania. But only a few days with his family is enough to convince Paul that you can’t go home again.
* Paul leaves for the airport in the midst of a snowstorm. Stranded in the woods, a chance meeting with a hunter is his only option for survival. Paul knows the type, a backwoods bigot just like the men he grew up with, but what choice does he have? A few days with the hunter convinces Paul there’s more to Andy Reynolds than meets the eye. But is it enough to bind two men who have nothing in common except their sex?
* Sleepless Knight
* Andy and Paul are totally committed to each other, but when the two-year itch infects their relationship, Paul becomes distant and refuses to talk about it. Andy arranges a much needed vacation, but on the way home they pick up a hitchhiker who’s willing to trade sex for a roof over his head. Andy will do anything to make Paul happy, even if it means bringing another man into their bed. But is a threesome really the answer? Or will it drive them further apart?

* Andy studied his houseguest. Under different circumstances, Paul’s features would be extremely appealing, but right now, his high cheekbones were an unhealthy shade of pale, and his sensual lips were blue. He hoped Paul would accept his help. “Okay, let’s get you into bed.”
* “I usually get dinner first,” Paul mumbled.
* Paul’s attempt at humor was a good sign. Andy chuckled. “I’ll give you something to nibble on later, city boy.”
* Andy helped his unexpected guest to the sleeping alcove. It was only across the room, but Paul leaned heavily on Andy, and by the time he sat on the bed, sweat beaded on Paul’s forehead. The man was obviously exhausted, but he tried to push Andy away when he attempted to undress Paul.
* “Come on, city boy. You need to warm up.”
* “I’m good.” Paul’s sentence ended with a shiver.
* “You’re not good. You’re hypothermic and maybe frostbitten. Let me take your clothes off, and maybe we’ll save a few body parts.”
* Andy’s harsh words must have gotten through to Paul. He stopped protesting and allowed Andy to undress him. When only Paul’s boxers remained, Andy surveyed his body with a clinical eye. There were no disturbing signs of frostbite. He just needed to rest and warm up. Paul might be cold, but he was also incredibly hot. Andy couldn’t help checking out his houseguest’s perfect golden tan. Obviously, the man was from a warmer locale. And Paul’s lean, muscular body, sprinkled with light brown hair, shouted gym rat. When Paul lay down on his back, Andy was surprised to see an erection escaping Paul’s boxers. He reached for the waistband to pull the shorts off.
* Paul rose on his elbows and swore under his breath. “See anything you like?”

The Night Gardener
#MMromance new release from Evernight Publishing

Architect, Dane Lovell takes an off-season vacation in an old New England mansion, hoping to ease his broken heart, and spark his imagination. Impressed by the pretty gardens, he’s surprised by the sinister atmosphere of the river than winds through the estate. Dane settles down to his vacation and tries to immerse himself in his drawings. One night, the sound of the back door smashing open in the wind and rain shocks Dane from his work.
Spooky, gorgeous, and enigmatic Zachary Yarrow has brought logs for the fire.
He’s the estate gardener and brings with him not just passion and a love affair for Dane, but a strange, spine-tingling mystery.
Who is Zachary, and what will happen when Dane finds out?

From the author
Inspired by some wild countryside, and a rushing river that stormed under a bridge so loudly, I couldn’t hear what a friend said to me, for me this story is as much about nature as love. I’ve always believed there are more things in the elegant stream of life than we know about, and this story is about a young man who loves life so much he finds a way to live it. There are some heartstring tugs in this story, and some hot love scenes, because this is a love story. It’s a journey for both characters, Dane and Zachary to deep, lasting love.

Read an excerpt 

The gardener slotted his logs into the spaces between other logs already in the nook bricked into the side of the fireplace. “Zachary Yarrow.”
Dane folded his arms over his body, wishing he’d thought to close the door as chilling air swept along the hall and into the room. “Dane Lovell.”
Zachary stood, having completed his task. “You’re here off season. I guess you know. I always do the gardens off-season—have done for the last—well, for years. When I’m here, I usually stay in this cottage. I guess I need to find somewhere else this time.”
Cold, Dane accepted the information with a nod. “I need to close the door, Mr. Yarrow.” He returned to the back door and closed it up.
Zachary Yarrow had followed. “You can call me Zachary.”
Dane hung around near the back door. The gardener showed no signs of leaving and Dane didn’t know how to be rude enough just to ask him to go.
“It’s way too dark to garden. You’re wet through.” Dane’s gaze ranged over the sodden sweater Zachary wore, and along the rain-darkened jeans covering Zachary’s muscled thighs.
The guy has to be cold. “Can I offer you a cup of coffee?”
Zachary grinned happily. “A cup of coffee, yeah, that will be great, thanks.”
Dane led the way back into the kitchen. “Sit by one of the radiators and try to dry out a little.” He put water to boil and heaped instant into mugs. “I can lend you a dry sweater…”
Zachary leaned close to the radiator. “It’s okay. I’ll drape my sweater on here. It’ll be dry in no time.” He pulled the soggy item over his head and arranged it on the hot metal flutes.
Dane experienced a shock of attraction as he took in the smooth, muscled chest on display when Zachary turned to him.
“Look, it’s already steaming.”
Dane tore his gaze from Zachary’s body and glanced at the sweater. The kettle boiled and he whipped around to make the coffee, thankful for the diversion.
“Do you take sugar or cream?”
Zachary’s voice came from immediately behind him. “Black, thank you, no sugar.”
Dane closed his eyes to dissipate the surprise Zachary’s silent approach gave him. He edged around to face Zachary, who stood so close Dane’s composure flew clean away as his whole body reacted to the proximity of this complete hunk.
Holy hell, he is completely gorgeous. Dane stepped sideways and picked up a mug. He handed it to Zachary. “Coffee, er, sorry, its instant. I’ve given myself a vacation from grounds and filters.” He smiled apologetically.
Zachary studied him for a few seconds.
Dane had the distinct feeling Zachary knew exactly what he was thinking.
