This was just what I needed! I got Landslide by Mary Calmes from a giveaway not too long ago. Every now and then I need me a Calmes fix, so I was snuggling up on the sofa with a glass of wine, and got ready to be swept away. Yes, you know what you get when reading Mary Calmes, but isn’t that sort of the point?
But, while this is typical Calmes with the big, strong, alpha male with a need to protect the man he loves, the other man in this story isn’t a copy of Jory from A Matter of Time. Frank is overweight and struggling with it, and people aren’t falling to their knees to worship him. No, he’s just a normal guy… well, almost. He’s a courier for the paranormal, friends with a werewolf, and in love with a demon, so not so normal.
I love the opening scene. Frank has been hurt and is bleeding, a lot. Cael, the demon who loves him, is standing on the other side of the front door trying to talk Frank into letting him in – he doesn’t.
Demons, can’t say I’ve ever been a fan. I’ve read a few M/F books (Lords of the Underworld, Demonica, some Jeaniene Frost books with demons), but I don’t think I’ve ever sat down and searched for a demon book the way I do with vampires, werewolves, magic users or whatever else I might fancy reading. I liked Cael, though. Always fun when a superior guy who can have everything he wants get frustrated.
This is a rather short story, and you can get it through Prolific Works, at least you could last time I checked.
For three years, paranormal courier Frank Corrigan has been working for incubus demon Cael Berith. Cael knows Frank is his mate, but Frank is pretty sure Cael doesn’t even like him, never mind want to spend the rest of his life with him, so their personal relationship is at an impasse. When Frank’s sister, Lindsey, gets bitten by a werewolf she’s sleeping with—and possibly witnesses a murder—Frank rides to her rescue. If he’s lucky, he might just save his love life too.
