Together forever, no matter what life throws at us.

It’s a phrase used from the moment two people realize it’s true love, and it was no different for Steve and Hank. That instant spark when they first touch. The lingering tingle of their first kiss. Their family and friends told them the odds were against them, but they never questioned their love.

They built their life from that love. Stacking memories up brick by brick to house and protect what they cherished most — each other. But one day Steve wakes up and Hank is gone. Now he must learn to move on without his one true love. People say time heals all wounds, but does it really? Can time ever mend a shattered heart?

Revelry by K.L. Noone

Revelry by K.L. Noone is now available!

Stephen Hunt’s having a terrible holiday season. It’s mid-December, and he’s about as far from the familiar scholarly walls of his Oxford professor’s office as he can get — Southern California, in fact, for an academic conference. Back home, his ex-boyfriend’s moved out, and Stephen’s alone and miserable in the hotel bar with his research on obscure ancient Roman holiday traditions. The bartender’s adorable, though, so at least that’s a good distraction from his thoughts.

Brian Dwyer’s a very good bartender. Good at making drinks and having holiday spirit, good at talking to customers, good at making people smile. He’s decided that the gorgeous but unhappy professor at the end of the bar definitely needs to smile. And once Stephen opens up and starts talking to him, Brian just might be in love with historical trivia, knowledge and passion, and those soft brown eyes. And if the night’s one of those decadent ancient holidays that Stephen knows so much about, even better — they’ll just have to find a way to celebrate together.

But as his fate begins to unfold, the curse that drives him becomes clear.

Fate may twist in strange ways, though. So what happens when a cursed assassin comes to lust after — and love — his intended target?
