Historical what???

I had another new book release last week. This one's a little different from what I've written before: It's a historical paranormal M/M/M menage.

Say that three times fast...

It all started because someone on a Yahoo loop I belong to expressed a desire to read a story about two bootleggers and a shifter. And someone else brought my name into it. And since I rarely turn down a writing challenge, I ran with it.

Hooch and Howls takes place in and near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in 1930. The main character, Malachi, is a lone werewolf who's been alone too long. The other two men, Roger and Jonathan, are in their early twenties and are smuggling rum to try to earn enough money to pay off a debt Jonathan owes and then head out to western Canada where they hope to be able to live without being afraid.

Since my mother is from Lunenburg, writing this story was like a homecoming for me. I really miss that town; I haven't been able to visit in ten years. I'll really have to get back there soon. I probably won't tell them about this book, though...

Hooch and Howls is available from MLR Press. 

In the decade since being changed into a werewolf in 1920, Malachi has become used to being alone. But the appearance of bootleggers Jonathan and Roger on the beach below Malachi's cottage shows Malachi what he's been missing. He wants these men in his life, but he can't ask them to stay. The following day, Roger returns seeking Malachi's help in rescuing Jonathan from the rum-runners who are holding him hostage. Can Malachi help the men while protecting his own heart?

Wow - what an exciting twist - not only a M/M/M menage, but paranormal too? Sounds amazing, Karenna - and I love the cover! :)

Thanks, Tina :) A friend gave me the plot bunny, and my brain kind of ran with it...
I'm thrilled with the cover. Another job well done by Winterheart Design.
