    Summary

    Guillermo is worried about Nandor's different behaviour after dealing with the Sire.

    He's then even more worried when Laszlo informs him of a special subgenre of vampire erotica--one where the battles between vampire slayers and vampire end a little differently.

    Worried, and maybe intrigued.

    Summary

    “I need to go home, Nandor.”

    Nandor’s fingers freeze. “...Home?”

    “I’m not--leaving leaving. I just need to go home for a while.”

    “And why must you do this, if it’s not to be leaving leaving?”

    “My--” Guillermo’s hands fly up to play with the lopsided bow in the sateen cord tied there by Nandor. “I have some business to take care of.”

    “Your brother is sick,” Nandor surmises with a frown.

    “I have a sister. I’m the brother,” says Guillermo. “And Vanesa’s not sick. She’s--well, not fine, but as fine as she could be, I guess.”

    Nandor sighs. “I have not had my early evening blood, Guillermo. Less riddles, please.”

    “My father’s dead,” Guillermo says without preamble or missing a beat.
    --
    When Guillermo receives the news that his estranged father is dead and he must come home to make funeral arrangements, Nandor accompanies him to meet the family. Cue awkward encounters, clandestine sexy times and a whole shipload of guilt and anger that Guillermo has been avoiding dealing with until now. Can Nandor help him find closure?

    Summary

    " Guillermo met his eyes across the courtyard, and for a moment the human was grave and resolute as a warrior in battle, resigned to his fate yet defiant to its circumstances. For a moment Nandor imagined this meeting as the start of a war rather than a courtship, and for that moment he felt as if he'd found his footing again.

    But then the human had done something outrageous.

    Then the human had smiled. "

    In the end, when all was said and done, the marriage of Nandor the Relentless and Guillermo de la Cruz would be remembered as a pivotal and defining moment in the history of human and vampiric society alike.

    In the beginning, however, it was mostly just a mess.

    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

     

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. Patrick Butcher, university librarian, part-time novelist and doting dad, is struggling with his new book and feeling a bit melancholy in a way he can't quite put his finger on.

    It isn't going to take much to end up in each other's orbits.
