QSFer Shiloh Saddler has a new MM historical fantasy book out:
Love is never easy and Blaze is faced with a difficult choice: Turn his back on his lover or the fairy realm.
John Butler is a lonely chandler’s apprentice in colonial Williamsburg. He doesn’t think that he’ll ever be respected let alone be loved. Trying to forget his troubles, he buries himself in his work and focuses on making candles.
Blaze Greymedow is a fire fairy. At first he was drawn to John’s candles, but is quickly smitten with the tall, muscular apprentice. He watches John from afar all the time wishing they could form a more intimate connection. It is unsafe for fairies to get too close to humans. If he breaks that rule, he knows there will be dire consequences.
All fae in his clan had a weakness: they were drawn to flame. He’d been out for an evening flight in the human realm, and that’s how he’d met the strapping apprentice. The man had been reading a book in the glow of candlelight. The next morning, he had to visit the apprentice’s house again to get a better look at the man he’d been drawn to—or, more appropriately, the man’s candle.
Ever since then, Blaze Greymeadow had ventured daily to see him, trying to learn more about the human. Blaze crouched behind blades of tall grass. It was not hard to hide his small form. For many weeks, he’d secretly watched the chandler’s apprentice making candles. Sleeves rolled up to reveal a glimpse of his muscular arms, the man repeatedly dipped the line of wicks into a large cast iron pot filled with wax.
To take advantage of the pleasant spring weather, the candle making had been moved outside. Blaze couldn’t have been more pleased. He no longer had to peer through the shop windows to admire the man he dreamed about every night. John Butler. The colonists did not have creative names like fairies. If he were fae, he could have been named Goldenrod on account of his blond hair or Moon on account of his bright smile.
Blaze dared to dash from behind his hiding place and inch closer. Underneath the strong scent of beeswax drifted John’s masculine musk. Blaze inhaled deeply. The more he got to know John from afar, the more he wished they could actually meet. Although humans and fae seldom got along.
