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

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
