STORM TIDE by Mel Keegan

You will not find feathery romances with Mel Keegan’s name on them. What you will find are novels with unusual plots and often unexpected settings. They are, simply put, great and fun reading.

That is definitely the case here. In a nutshell, this book takes place in a destructive and overwhelming storm on the coast of Australia. Sean and Rob take time out of their busy work lives to reconnect after a blow to the solidity of their young relationship. Staying on the shore i...more

This is the best Mel Keegan book I've read yet. The story, set in Australia, depicts the troubled relationship between male lovers Sean Brodie and Rob Markham. They decide to fix their troubles by taking some alone time together on Rob's boat, when they accidentally stumble onto a drug and gun-running gang. What follows is a thrilling chase during one of the biggest weather storms to hit in decades. This is a action-packed, suspense-filled roller coaster ride, with our protagonists stumbling fro...more

SlashReaders: 'Storm Tide', was a wonderfully contrast to the last book that I read, which was not great. In comparison this book was a bed of roses. However, that being said this book was better in a 'happy ending' sort of way. I admit that I am a sucker for angst with a bit of happy fluff at the end. Somehow the happy makes all the bad worth while and I like that.

Between the pages of Mel Keegan's, 'Storm Tide' you find a lot of things from action, to capture, to rescue, to wildly lashing winds...more

3.5 stars. I enjoyed this story set in the mid-eighties. Rob and Sean have been out sea-fishing before a storm and find themselves in a life threatening situation(s) after stopping to offer help to another boat.

There were a lot of "don't-walk-down-the-into-the-dark-basement" moments - not that there were any basements involved - but the boys couldn't seem to stop themselves doing foolish things. They had a very bad day because they made one bad call after another. Their continued bad luck took a...more

15年くらい前?の、まだMMなかりし頃のゲイ・アクション・ロマンス。いわゆるジャンルの走り、ということで読んでみましたが、ロマンス色はかなり薄め。むしろ、嵐の中逃げ惑い、時に戦う2人のサバイバルもの。
デズモンド・バグリイとか、ああいう昔の冒険小説の香りがします。懐かしい。
基本逃げてますが、最後の反撃シーンは大変スリリングだった。ほかはちょっと展開がゆっくりかな。でも思えばあの頃の自然系冒険小説って大体こうだった気がします。

冒険小説として見るなら4つ星でもいいかな。カプものとしてはロマンスやドラマがやや不足。
Josh Lanyonも、今のMMにつながる作者のひとりとしてMel Keeganの名前をあげてるので、抑えという意味ではオススメの一冊。

A self-confessed science fiction and fantasy devotee, Keegan is known for novels across a wide range of subjects, from the historical to the future action-adventure. Mel lives in South Australia with an eccentric family and a variety of pets.

Every Mel Keegan book is strong on gay or bisexual heroes (also, often, on gay villains), and some of these heroes are the most delicious in fiction: Jarrat...more
