Instead of being a novelette (a longish short story) it’s as long as my short novel (aka novella) The King’s Guard. :) If you haven’t read that one and can’t compare, it’s about twice as long as the last R’H’ani Chronicles story, One to Tame.
It’s showing up in all the usual places, but for the most up to date list of links, visit the book’s page. :)
Here’s a little about the story that took over my life for just a little while this summer. :D
About No Better Offer
Stenyl is miserable in his new job in the harem of a wealthy R’H’ani bureaucrat, but it was the best he could get after being fired from his last for breaking the rules. When he gets a better offer, he knows he should accept. Only the better offer might not be the one he wants…
Spencyr is the reason Stenyl was fired without cause and forced to take a job he hates—so why does his heart still beat faster every time the gray man gets near?
Then there’s Neese, Stenyl’s handsome co-worker who claims not only not to be gay but to have never performed with another man, and who has made Stenyl an outcast in the harem. Neese is a liar, and Stenyl means to prove it.
If only Spencyr were a little more forthcoming about his own desires, and Neese wasn’t so infuriating—and so pretty…
Check out all the details on the page for No Better Offer, where you’ll also find the usual links.
There’s a lot of story in this one, and I happen to really love the guys in it so if you pick up a copy, I really hope you enjoy it! :D
No Better Offer stands alone the way most of the stories in this series do, so you can read it without fear of a big cliffhanger to frustrate you! That said, the next one in the series is close to being ready, so you can expect to see Stenyl again soon. ;-)
On that note, Yestrille’s got a story coming up back in Ani’Hain, and I have titles for the next several R’H’ani Chronicles stories, because I really got on a roll with these. :D
#13 – A Fair Trade
#14 – Two to Cherish
#15 – Anything He Asks
#16 – Never Enough
#17 – Only for Him
Barring disaster, they’ll all be coming out this year. :)
If I change the order before publishing, you’ll be able to find the official order on the main R’H’ani Chronicles page.
