Queer Relations, my follow-up to my July story, Twelve Letters is now on pre-release! Queer Relations is included in the 40% Labour Day Weekend sale at JMS Books with all my titles until Monday, and then it will be on a 20% pre-release/new release sale on the JMS site until September 16th.
When I wrote my Regency romp Twelve Letters for JMS Books’ 12th Anniversary celebrations, I had no intention of writing a sequel. But my characters ganged up on me (the disadvantage of having an ensemble cast) and Percy the Regency brat sashayed into my head and demanded his own story. So I was outnumbered! Queer Relations will be on release from September 10th.
In the autumn of 1814, the Honourable Percy Havilland is generally content with his sheltered existence in London’s exclusive Mayfair. As a society beau, renowned for his fair and youthful beauty, an object of desire to other well-born gentlemen, Percy is slightly miffed that his personal life is not running as seamlessly as he might wish.
His good-natured lover from the spring Season, Jo Everett, has inexplicably lost interest, and his replacement, Nathaniel Brooks, is far too hard-headed to be cajoled and manipulated into pandering to Percy’s every whim.
But these trifles are cast into proportion when out of the blue, a family scandal of immense proportions threatens Percy’s peace of mind and his standing amongst the ton. Fearing rejection or even social banishment, to his surprise, Percy discovers a small, unconventional band of friends, including Jo, who are prepared to stick by him. And more importantly, he finds Nathan is utterly reliable in a crisis.
Will Percy remain spoiled, immature and pampered? Or can he grow from this disaster to appreciate the value of true friendship? And might he even learn to love?
