In a world where magic is real and evil walks amongst humanity, a young sorcerer is beset by enemies, both old and new.
Angelus Salvatore is the only necromancer in all of Boston, and his name is whispered warily by the undead and fellow sorcerers alike. He and his brother Isaac are the lone survivors of an attack by an army of the undead, in which Angel used a spell so powerful it forever marked his place in history. Now, years later, Angel struggles to balance his career as a teacher of the higher magical arts, his role as big brother, and a tenuous relationship with an Elder vampire from the local clan. When his brother's boyfriend is used as a pawn in a mysterious plot to draw Angel out, Angel is once again drawn back into the old hostilities that fueled the Blood Wars and led to his family's death.
Leaning on others for help is something Angel cannot do, and while he searches for clues as to who may be targeting him and his brother, Angel finds his heart steadily growing occupied with Simeon, Elder and vampire. Dealing with death magic and vampires on a daily basis may leave Angel jaded when it comes to life and staying that way, but the more time he spends fending off the ancient vampire's attention and affections, the more he realizes he wants to give in.
Can Angel find out who wants him dead, and keep his heart safe in the process? How can he fall for a vampire, when his whole family was torn apart by an army of the undead? Death stalks the streets of Boston's historic Beacon Hill...and there is no one more suited to battle against death than a necromancer.

“Hear me, Gregory Doyle. Hear me, and obey. Breathe, and speak.” 
Angel took a new drag on the cheroot, and the tip glowed as he breathed in, and Greg’s chest rose with his. Greg sucked in air and began to cough. He sat up slowly, coughing and hacking, tears running from his eyes. The scent of fire and smoke was immediately present in the room, as if they were all about to be consumed by flames. His red-shot eyes locked on Angel’s, and for the first time in an hour, he saw true recognition in them. 
“Angie? What the hell?” Greg mumbled, clearly not understanding what was happening. He probably didn’t remember anything since he agreed to rob Boston’s Master. Angel narrowed his eyes at the annoying nickname, but decided not to waste time on it. 
“Seems you were an idiot, Greg. Someone hired you to rob the Master, break into his place, and steal something here. Care to share?” Angel said, a hint of impatience leaking past his control. His magic stayed steady, Greg’s life ticking away by the second. 
Greg blinked, lost and dazed, but Angel was expecting that. Angel sent the smoke through Greg’s mind, inhaling another deep drag of tobacco rich air. Angel could almost see the individual memories flash in Greg’s eyes as he burnt away the fatigue and stress, the injuries to the other man’s brain left behind by the compulsion as it controlled him. 
“Answer me, now.” 
Greg spoke so fast he startled himself. “It was some dude down at Sexy Femme in Fall River. Never seen him before. Said he would pay cold hard cash for a quick job.”
About the Author
I'm a self-employed writer who stresses out about the silliest things, like whether or not I got my dog the best kind of snack and the fact my kindle battery tends to die when I'm at the best part in a book. I write mainly gay romance, erotica, and urban fantasy, with ocasional forays into contemporary and paranormal. I love a book heavy on plot and character evolution, and throw in some magic, and that's perfection. My current series are: The Beacon Hill Sorcerer, Bred For Love (as Revella Hawthorne), and The Wolfkin Saga. My last two novels in the Beacon Hill Sorcerer won 3rd Place in the Gay Fantasy category for the 2016 Rainbow Awards.
I live in New Orleans, where the personalities are big and loud and so are the bugs! New Orleans is rich in cultural history, and the flavor and music of the City is impossible to hide. Before that, I lived all over the United States: Tampa, Western Massachusetts, Indianapolis, and on and on.... I'm a nomad, and I've yet to find a place that calls to me strongly enough to become home. My faithful travel companions are my dog Micah, the numerous voices in my head who insist they all get put on paper, and the wind at my back.
