Born and raised in a small coastal town in northern Québec, Bey spent his early summers on his uncle’s boat and running wild on the beaches of the surrounding islands, lighting fires and building huts out of driftwood and fishermen’s nets. As an adult, he eventually made his way to university and earned a degree in Art History with a strong focus on Anthropology. Primarily a portrait painter and graphic artist, Bey sat down one day and decided to start writing.

Release Day Review: Kestrel’s Talon (The Stonewatchers #1) by Bey Deckard #MMFantasy #Erotica

BLURB:

Novel (135,031 words)
Genre(s): Fantasy, Triad, LGBT/QUILTBAG

Following the Prentish/Nemarri war, Kes is rejected by his homeland under the guise of religious purity laws. Though he’s spared execution, the proud Nemarri’s fate is only marginally more merciful than death when he is sold into sexual slavery at a prosperous pleasure house.

Despite his stoic endurance, Kes knows he’s reaching his breaking point, but there is nothing he can do—there is no path to freedom in the Holy Prentish Empire, only a lifetime of humiliating servitude.

That is, until a beautiful young slave and his formidable master approach Kes in the marketplace and make an astonishing offer to take him home with them. The only problem: “home” is the accursed Horthmont Castle from the scare-stories of Kes’s childhood.

Thrown into a world of living myth, powerful magic, and ancient gods, Kes learns the secrets kept hidden by Horthmont’s thick blackstone walls. There he discovers something he thought he’d never know again: hope for the future.

REVIEW:

Fantastic erotic fantasy! As a lover of fantasy and m/m erotica, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story begins when the master of the gorgeous redhead slave, Talon, purchases the pleasure slave, Kes, for him. Though Kes is drawn to Talon from first sight, he is wary about the situation. It’s unheard of for a slave to own another slave, but Talon is a rare beauty that he could never refuse. When Kes arrives at their castle, he begins to learn all the mysteries behind Talon and his master. Despite the arrangement being the closest thing to freedom he’d known since he was sold into slavery, Kes still yearns to be free. However, once he gets to know his new master’s, a new world opens up for him.

This book was a lot of fun. I loved the magical realm Bey Deckard creates, and I especially loved the characters. I sympathized with Kes’s desire for freedom even though it seemed like his new master had given him more than he could have dreamed of as a free man. Plus, Talon was so beautiful that every moment Kes spent with him was amazing and magical. I look forward to reading the next book  in this series, and I recommend Kestrel’s Talon to anyone who loves m/m high fantasy and m/m erotica.

RATING: I liked it!

Review: The Last Nights of the Frangipani Hotel by Bey Deckard #Erotica #MM @BeyDeckard

TITLE: The Last Nights of the Frangipani HotelThe Last Nights of The Frangipani Hotel (The Actor's Circle #2)

LENGTH: 79 Pages

Genre(s): Out for you, Contemporary, Romance, Erotica

All James wanted was a little solitude at his favourite resort: bright sunshine overhead, soft, white sand underfoot, and a hammock to read in while the warm breeze rustles through the coconut palms and almond trees. However, when an old acquaintance shows up, and James is obliged to share “his” beach, a profound exchange over a bottle of rum leads to a lust-fuelled encounter in the dark.

Reeling from the intensity of the drunken tryst, James decides to cut his vacation short rather than face what he’s kept hidden under mountains of denial.

However, his escape is thwarted when Rudie, handsome and plainspoken, calls him out on his behaviour and makes him see that life needn’t be spent running away from his desires.

Set at a rundown old resort on a small Caribbean island, The Last Nights of The Frangipani Hotel is a story about letting go of fear and learning that passion and love can be found in the most unexpected of places.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This book really pulled on my heart strings. It was hot, but also so very romantic. The story begins when James realizes he’s sharing his secluded beach with another guy, Rudie, who happens to be an actor like himself. He’s irritated at first but after drinking and reminiscing, they end up in bed together. James feels bad about it afterward. He’s had encounters with men before, but he’s far from being out and still feels guilty. Rudie puts him at ease and helps James to feel more comfortable about himself and his sexuality. Their vacation is highly erotic, but also changes something fundamental in James.

This is the type of book that when you put it down, you just can’t read anything else for a while. It gave me such a warm feeling that I wanted the story not to end. I loved how James grew and how he learned to accept himself, and I especially loved the ending. I really was worried for a while about how things would turn out, but with how it ended, I couldn’t ask for anything better. This book was a standalone, but there was a nice little tie in with the first book in this series that made me smile. Though I started reading Bey Deckard’s books for the dark fantasy aspects, I admit to being equally enthralled with his romantic works. I look forward to reading future installments of The Actor’s Circle. I recommend this book to anyone who loves coming out/self-discovery themes and m/m romance.

Review: The Complications of T (The Actor’s Circle #1) by Bey Deckard #Erotica #GLBTQ @BeyDeckard

TITLE: The Complications of TThe Complications of T (The Actor's Circle #1)

SERIES:  The Actor’s Circle #1

AUTHOR:  Bey Deckard

PUBLISHER: Self-Published

LENGTH: 81 Pages

BLURB:

A bite-sized trans* love story:

Stuart Leandro knows he’s washed up, both on the big screen, and in his marriage. Then, when things take an even bigger turn for the worse one night, he winds up blind drunk and lost in a foreign city.

Thankfully, someone’s there to rescue him before his face ends up plastered all over the tabloids.

Wary of the motives of the reclusive stranger who brings the fading star into the quiet shelter of a hip but isolated loft, Stuart nonetheless can’t deny his curiosity… Or his attraction. Tim is unlike anyone the actor has ever met, but underneath the mystery and quiet attempts at invisibility, Stuart discovers someone whose life has been intertwined with his own for years.

Neither could have predicted that Tim’s act of kindness would lead to one of the most intense encounters of their lives—but, are they willing to weather the media storm their extraordinary relationship will cause?

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This book was extremely sweet as well as erotic. The story begins when an actor, Stuart, wakes up in someone’s house after he went on a drinking binge. Stuart thinks at first that he’d had sex with the person, and he also imagines the person is a woman. However, when he realizes that Tim is actually a transsexual man, he’s intrigued. Stuart finds out that Tim has been one of his biggest fans as well as a critic that he’s very familiar with. As they get to know one another, Stuart cannot deny his attraction for Tim. They come together and realize their feelings are something they cannot bear to hide or do without.

It’s not often that I read transsexual romance or trans erotica, so this book was definitely different for me. Tim was so androgynous that it was hard at first to visualize him being a man, but in the end, it really didn’t matter. The book was hot. I especially loved how Stuart didn’t judge himself for desiring Tim. Even though he’d never imagined being with a trans man before, he is comfortable enough with his sexuality that he doesn’t have to judge himself or over analyze the situation. He just goes with his heart without worrying about all the rest. I commend the author for stepping out of his usual genre with this book; something I hope to see more m/m authors do. I recommend The Complications of T to anyone who loves GLBTQ Erotica and M/M Romance.

Byron is tall, handsome, well spoken, wealthy, and has outstanding taste in wine and food. You’ll be impressed by his impeccable attire and eloquence in conversation, ranging from Baroque art to the newest advances in pharmacology. With his charming smile and elegant manners, Byron truly is the perfect date… and who doesn’t love a man who appreciates opera?

What’s the catch, you ask?

Just this: if Byron finds you suitable, he will subject you to utterly depraved forms of torture.

No, I’m not talking about S&M.

Byron will mutilate, rape, and then kill you. Don’t think that you will survive the encounter, because you won’t. He has a perfect record.

Intrigued? Would you like me to arrange a rendezvous? It has to be in the next few days because he’s leaving on a trip south to much warmer climes, and his calendar will be completely full.

Yes? Very good. I will make a reservation for two under the name of Smith.

Who am I? I’m Gloria, his personal assistant.
