Garin's having a pretty bad day. He doesn't use his magic very often, because his human lover Simon doesn't like it, but sometimes it just builds up inside him. Like today. Which is why, when he's faced with a health inspector and a wayward cat, he ends up with a magical debacle.

Start with a hard working Fae, Garin, trying to keep his magic under control in the human world for Simon, the love of his life. Add a build up of magic, a surprise health inspection and sneaky tom cat, stir for a sweet and sexy short story. Well written, with just enough of each character for the reader to want more. Formerly published by Torqere Press, now available to download it from AO3, though I would gladly have bought it
Acceptance was something Simon was good at, his tolerance a quality Garin had never expected to find out here in the hard-edged garishness of the human world.

Your lover is an elf. Elf have magic. Saying to your lover that you don't like it when he use his magic and trowing a fit every time, is not acceptance.

This delightful short story is filled with surprises and fun elements. The romance between Simon and Garin is wonderful and Tom’s fun antics thrown into the mix deliver an entertaining and engaging story. Mostly clean with only a few mistakes, this story will entice fantasy fans while playing with the theme of pets, and cats in particular, rather well. Although this is a romance with a solid and satisfying happy ending, what Tom is (cat or human) and how he fits into Garin and Simon’s family is ...more

This was a delightful little short with a mix of situational humour and romance.

In a moment of blind panic, half elf/human Garin accidentally turns a ginger tom cat into a human. Unable to turn him back Garin calls on his lover, Simon, to help out, and they both then have to resist the lure of uninhibited Tom.

I liked all the characters, especially the very cat-like Tom with his uncomplicated views on nudity and sex. The interplay between Simon and Garin was very funny, and also sweetly romantic.

Funny at first and engrossing. From there it quickly turns a bit more serious and awkward. While I was hoping for Garin, Simon, and Tom to all three get together - and knew it would happen from some summaries - when it finally happened I was greatly disappointed. Only the last scene showed them together 'couple-wise' and then it was handled so casually it was almost like, "blah blah blah talking-about-our-day, oh by the way stick your ass in the air and suck him down for a minute ... good, good, ...more

Short and very sweet! You cat lovers will get a kick out of this one! All I could imagine was how, like the security guard, all I would do is sneeze. LOL

I'm English by birth, but I moved to Canada twenty years ago, so I have two places I call home. I started writing in my thirties, hammering out millions of words of fanfic with a growing sense that yes, this was something I could do, wanted to do, needed to do.

A decade ago, I became a professional writer of m/m romance and I've never regretted my choice of career. Back then, telling people what I
