I had to impatiently sigh a lot too given how obtuse Carr can be. Yet once he does figure out the right man, I laughed as said man told Carr he’d smack him if Carr kept calling himself unworthy.

Synopsis

FROM POPULAR GAY ROMANCE AUTHOR ANGEL MARTINEZ

Book three in the Offbeat Crimes series

Words damage more than just feelings as Carrington hunts feral books menacing the city.

When a ferocious book attacks Carrington at his own birthday party, he believes it’s an isolated incident. But similar books soon pop up all over town, menacing innocent people with harsh bits of poetry and blank verse that deliver damaging physical blows. It’s a frustrating case with too many variables and not enough answers, and the stakes go up with each attack.

With the help of his misfit squad mates at the 77th and the public library’s Rare Books Department, the missing pieces decrease but not Carrington’s vexations. His commanding officer rakes him over the coals at the beginning of every shift. His police partner has lost patience with what she sees as his delusional relationship choices and his inability to pick the right man in a vast field of two. City Hall demands that the books be stopped immediately. It’s enough to put a nutritionally challenged vampire off his skim blood.

Originally hailing from Detroit Michigan, Bellora now resides on the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida where a herd of Dachshunds keeps her entertained.

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.
