Romancing Canada's Indigenous People

Welcome to Morgan’s Brice’s Halloween Tour.  Check out the first books in each of Morgan’s different “spooky” series set in the world of urban fantasy, m/m paranormal romance.  Be on the lookout for a “treat” the author has in store for you.

****

Morgan picks the spookiest and scariest story:

I’d have to say Witchbane. It’s solidly MM paranormal romance, but it sticks close to my urban fantasy roots and the bad guy is scarier than the usual romance villain. If you like Supernatural or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you’ll feel right at home.

By comparison, I’d say Badlands and Treasure Trail were medium-spooky, still with plenty of ghosts, magic, and supernatural creatures.

Huntsman (Fox Hollow Zodiac) and Kings of the Mountain are less spooky, although they’ve still got shifters, spells, psychics, and lots of paranormal goings-on!

I try to make sure my series are varied enough to offer something for everyone, from slight chills to major thrills!

Dawson King’s family has been hunting things that go bump in the night in Transylvania County, North Carolina, since before the Revolutionary War.

Dawson was never happier than when he was racing his souped-up Mustang along winding mountain roads and hunting monsters with his best friend, Grady. Then Grady fell in love with him, which should have been perfect since Dawson had already fallen hard for Grady.

But Grady was only seventeen, and Dawson feared that sooner or later, Grady would realize his feelings were just a first crush, and then he’d be gone, leaving Dawson devastated. They both needed space to figure things out. So Dawson joined the army, while Grady stayed on the mountain.

Four years later, Dawson is coming home. He’s more sure than ever Grady is his forever love, and they’ve both agreed to begin this new aspect of their relationship as soon as Dawson gets back.

Then Grady’s father is killed in a werewolf hunt gone wrong. Grady is devastated, and he’s throwing mixed signals about moving forward. Dawson knows he needs to hold off on this new thing between them until Grady has time to grieve. But monsters never sleep, and one hunt after another throws Dawson and Grady into constant danger, while tension and unresolved feelings ripple between them.

Making it even harder, Dawson’s got a secret. He’s dreamed of death omens—which point to something stalking Grady. Can Dawson figure out who’s trying to kill Grady, save his life, and win back his heart?

Plenty of mutual pining, hurt/comfort, spooky chills, sexy thrills, and a very happy ending. The Kings of the Mountain is the first novel in the series.
