Marquesate is a British author living in Scotland. She has been associated with the British Forces for many years, and specialises in contemporary gay military fiction.

Using the insider knowledge of the 'bowels' of the military machinery and the insight into the soldiers' minds and modes of functioning, Marquesate creates realistic settings, situations and characters who are simultaneously down to earth and larger than life. Those men are strong, aggressive, tough and independent, and it is their determination and truthfulness to themselves and their comrades in arms, that becomes their saviour and their downfall.

These soldiers are grounded in their military context and thrown into a maelstrom of duty, comradeship, hostility and courage, to

One year after the publication of Vita Mortis, we posted its sequel, Canteen Gossip. A third part of the Nil Desperandum series will be sortly underway.

Enjoy!

“Opening the door, he nearly did a double take into the mirror behind
him.
Hooch. Hooch, pushing his shades back up onto his head, and re-shouldering the bergan. Hooch, standing in the doorway.
“Been thinking.”
Two words, more than usual.
“Been around a bit.”
Six, speech worthy of a national holiday.
“Looking for a station now.”
Eleven, whole fucking fireworks.
"Central station.”
Thirteen, and the heavens came down for Matt.
“You still offering?”
Sixteen, and the world stopped spinning.
Matt stood thinking for a while, not a muscle in his face twitched. Then
stepped aside, gestured the other man to follow him. Closed the door.
“One condition.”
Hooch’s brows rose for a split second.
Matt broke into a grin at last, which threatened to split his face. “Promise
not to talk too much.”

“You conquered me, got to this Special Forces bloke well and truly." His voice husky and low. "You could betray and kill me now and I wouldn't give a shit as long as you'd stay close until I died.”

OkayKim Oh Marquesate, I'm jonesing for a new story by you. Please, throw us a tidbit.


Sophia Thank you for accepting my friend request. I really enjoy your stories.

Do that, I shall not disappoint. Give me camo any day.


Boycop I will keep you to that promise.


Marquesate Boycop wrote: "Thanks for accepting the friends request. Keep on writing! And please, about soldiers. There just aren't enough good soldier stories in this world."

Don't worry, I shall never write about anything but soldiers. They are the only type of men I find hot enough to write about. I can't stand suits and the men in them, so uniforms it shall be. :-p


Boycop Thanks for accepting the friends request. Keep on writing! And please, about soldiers. There just aren't enough good soldier stories in this world.


Marquesate It's not in the books yet, because the cover art isn't finished yet, and I'm one of those peeps who don't like the blank cover thinger.

Soon! promised.


Lauraadriana Thanks for the add! Very EXCITED about Matt and Hooch's story. VERY VERY much looking forward to it. You should add it here on GR I couldn't find it in your books!
