An unregistered human con wizard and a duty-bound, straight-laced elf cop. As New York explodes with dangerous creatures, their passion goes nuclear.

After a terrible magical accident at Berkeley created unpredictable holes between realities, all manner of non-human creatures started popping into our world. These displacements, called Random Anomalous Reality Events or RARE, have taken magic out of fiction and relocated it firmly in reality, resulting in a great deal of chaos and confusion. Displaced elf Valerian works with AURA, the Agency of Unnatural Resettlement and Assimilation, to intercept these beings as they appear in the human world, helping the peaceful ones and subduing the violent, malevolent ones. It’s good, satisfying work, and Val would be happy if he wasn’t so lonely.

Quinten is a young mage just trying to get by, but New York isn’t the easiest city to make a living in. If his methods are sometimes morally dubious, his heart is still in the right place. Of course, for Quinn, the right place means firmly locked away, protected at all costs. Living by his wits and sometimes magically induced luck, he works as a ‘freelance magic user’, or unregistered mage and small-time con, according to the authorities. The last thing Quinn wants is to draw the cops’ attention, but when an Event happens right on top of him, he’s forced to turn to AURA for help. Valerian isn’t at all what he’d expected in an AURA cop, and he certainly wasn’t expecting to join forces with the sexy elf, a snarky drow and a bitter incubus, when certain individuals in power try to stop the RARE by any means necessary.

Things are not all what they seem at AURA headquarters, and a greater evil lurks at the top than anyone could have imagined.

Angel Martinez & Bellora Quinn

Angel Martinez

The unlikely black sheep of an ivory tower intellectual family, Angel Martinez has managed to make her way through life reasonably unscathed. Despite a wildly misspent youth, she snagged a degree in English Lit, married once and did it right the first time, (same husband for almost twenty-four years) gave birth to one amazing son, (now in college) and realized at some point that she could get paid for writing.

Published since 2006, Angel's cynical heart cloaks a desperate romantic. You'll find drama and humor given equal weight in her writing and don't expect sad endings. Life is sad enough.

She currently lives in Delaware in a drinking town with a college problem and writes Science Fiction and Fantasy centered around gay heroes.

Bellora Quinn

Originally hailing from Detroit Michigan, Bellora now resides on the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida where a herd of Dachshunds keeps her entertained. She got her start in writing at the dawn of the internet when she discovered PbEMs (Play by email) and found a passion for collaborative writing and steamy hot erotica. Soap Opera like blogs soon followed and eventually full novels.

The majority of her stories are in the M/M genre with urban fantasy or paranormal settings and many with a strong BDSM flavour.

You can take a look a Bellora's blog and find her on Facebook and Twitter.

Angel Martinez and Bellora Quinn - Guys Like Romance Too feature

Angel Martinez and I have been writing together for many years. We had taken a break from a long running project so I emailed her and said I wanted to write collaboratively with her again but I didn't know what. She said alrighy, let's do something a bit outside of the real world. And I said, Urban Fantasy? And she said, fine but nothing with vamps or weres, the world is overrun with them right now. And I said, witches and wizards and fairies and magic? And she said, I have this bizarre idea. Let's rip a hole in the fabric of reality, drop all sorts of creatures in, and create an agency that has to deal with the resulting chaos.

Angel Martinez and Bellora Quinn - Author Spotlight feature

Did you enjoy the freedom associated with building an alternate reality?

Angel: Always. Though at first, a new world is always daunting – so many little details involved in playing minor god. When you build an alternate reality, though, the world is an extra character and the nature of that character becomes clearer the longer you work on it. It’s an amazing rush, being allowed to conceive of anything your heart desires.

Bellora: It’s so much fun to take our reality and tweak it a little, or sometimes a lot. I think the best part for me is figuring out how people will react when confronted with a world where it’s no longer strange to see a herd of centaurs in Central Park.
