MagicianJMS Books



A magician in need of redemption. A loyal hero on a quest. And only one bed at the inn.

Once the world’s most legendary sorcerer, Lorre fled the Middle Lands after his own curiosity — and a misguided transformation spell — turned him into a dragon and nearly killed a king. He isn’t a dragon anymore, but he is hiding alone on a tropical island, avoiding people, politics, and his own reputation.

But now a hero’s found him. And not just any hero. Prince Gareth’s full of patience, intelligence, a kind heart … and unfairly attractive muscles. And he needs Lorre’s help: his tiny mountain kingdom is under attack from ice magic, and Gareth hopes the world’s last great magician will save his people.

Lorre is done with quests and princes and trying to change the world. But Gareth might tempt him to believe in magic again…

Frost & Raine

Frost and RaineJMS Books



A Frost spirit who runs a coffee shop. A Cupid who works as a divorce lawyer. And magic in the air …

Raine’s never been a conventional Cupid. He likes organization, his job as a successful lawyer, and black coffee, and he dislikes messiness, physical and emotional. He tries hard not to use his powers, because he’d rather not manipulate anyone’s desires, and he’s not planning to fall in love himself — and he wouldn’t trust it if someone fell in love with him. But the owner of Raine’s favorite coffee shop is endlessly patient, kind even in the face of sarcasm, and an artist with flavors and window decorations … and he might challenge Raine’s resolutions about love.

Don enjoys his life. Even though he’s a Frost, he finds comfort in giving people warmth: good coffee, a cozy refuge from the rain, holiday decorations, and overall cheer. But one gorgeous Cupid seems immune to Don’s cheerfulness — and he keeps coming back, day after day. Fortunately, Don’s always liked a challenge, and now he’s determined to make Raine smile at least once … and he’s discovering that Raine’s sarcasm hides a generous and lonely heart, keeping the world at bay.

And if Don and Raine can learn to trust each other — with new coffee flavors, with their hopes for the future, and with their hearts — the Frost and the Cupid just might find their own magical happy ending.

Cadence and the Pearl

Cadence and the PearlJMS Books (ebook)

JMS Books (print)



Once upon a time, on a rocky island with enchantment under the ocean…

Cadence Bell left the windswept Northern Isles and his parents’ inn for the theaters and royal masques and glitter of Londre, swearing he’d make his fortune as a playwright and poet, trading fish stew and rain for fame and adoration and a place at the Queen’s Court. Now his parents are gone and Cade’s inheritance brings him back home, where he’d never wanted to return. But magic lurks beneath the waves, a stray pearl might be a key to another world, and even the quiet local schoolteacher has secrets of his own.

Jeremiah Carver never meant to hide secrets. But he promised to tell no one about the other world he’s seen, and he keeps his word. Even if that means concealing magic from Cadence Bell. Which is difficult, since Cade’s not only a dazzling literary success, but also the person Jeremiah’s loved from afar since their years-ago childhood. And he’s afraid he’s falling for Cade all over again now.

When Cadence falls under the siren spell of the ocean’s magic, Jeremiah has to make a choice and return to a world he’s left behind once before to rescue his heart from the sea.

A Prophecy for Two




In every legend of Fairyland, the fairies have their own reasons for crossing the border…

Oliver has spent his life as the crown prince of the northernmost kingdom on the human side of the border. He’s meant to rule but in no hurry to do that, enjoying life and taverns with Tirian, his fairy-companion and best friend. But when the traditional Vision Quest calls― and a dragon appears―Oliver finds himself facing difficult questions about heroism, sacrifice… and the emotions he’s discovering about Tir. But Tirian has secrets of his own: about his purpose, his magic, his feelings for Oliver, and a prophecy that will change the fates of two kingdoms forever.

Happy established-relationship M/M/M superheroes in love! Specifically, one supersoldier (who’s already lost a former partner), one former sidekick (who’s cranky about the sidekick part), and one redeemed supervillain (who’s been undercover, so the world still thinks he’s a villain)…

Sundown, Holiday, Beacon

Sundown, Holiday, Beacon (Extraordinary Book 1) by [Noone, K.L.]


JMS Books


Three superheroes in love! Or one superhero, one former sidekick, and one redeemed supervillain, at least…

Ryan, John, and Holiday have been partners — in every sense of the word — for two years. They’ve saved the world, fallen in love, and remodeled the secret base to include bookshelves and a bigger bed.

But Ryan and John have always been the public face of the team. The world still believes Holiday’s a villain. And he’s been using that reputation to stay undercover and share information. Tonight, though, Holiday comes home injured, and his partners aren’t sure the mission’s worth his life.

Also contains lasagna, superhero theatrics, home renovation, a thunderstorm, and very enjoyable use of superpowers in bed.


Homecomings (Extraordinary Book 2) by [Noone, K.L.]


JMS Books


More superheroes in love! This time, it’s a complicated mission: meeting the parents.

With Holiday no longer undercover as a supervillain, they’ve made him a public part of the team … and of their relationship. But that won’t be easy. Ryan’s parents, as the team’s science support, want to know every power-related detail, and ask questions about wedding plans and the future. Holly’s supervillain parents are almost certainly no longer on this plane of reality. And John’s parents love their hero son, but aren’t too sure about his choice of partners. Still, Ryan, John, and Holly have faced worse, together.

Contains mystic portals, one set of overexcited parents, one uncomfortable dinner-party, and blueberry pie.

But when a sudden deadly mission threatens John’s life, Holiday’s new abilities might be the only way to save him …

Contains superpowers, an earthquake machine, tea, hurt/comfort, and also comfort sex in a very large bed.

Faerie horses should at least show up on time. That’s Aidan’s opinion, anyway. He’s been waiting for the pooka all night, to catch it stealing apples from human orchards. This Magical Enforcement Division assignment’s supposed to be easy—and Aidan could use the break, after a previous case gone badly wrong. But when the apple-thief pooka does show up, it takes the shape of a gorgeous young man…who doesn’t seem to mind being captured at Aidan’s hands.

Ink left his herd to seek out adventure, and he’s found it, in the form of a devastatingly handsome MED agent. He’s always been up for a challenge, and Aidan Callahan is certainly that: gorgeous, powerful, and good at his job. Ink’s perfectly happy to let Aidan put a hand—or an enchanted bridle—on him, especially with that note of command. It’ll be simple and fun, a decadent magical one night stand—and Ink knows they’ll both enjoy it.

But this night isn’t simple. Ritual magic and Aidan’s own complicated gifts collide, and the family legacy he’s been avoiding becomes important…though Aidan’s starting to think it’s not as important as keeping Ink in his arms.

A Penny for Your ThoughtsJMS Books

~a comfortable sort of domestic high fantasy setting!

~one adorable magician
~one big bashful artifact hunter who keeps bringing said magician cursed items to defuse

Averet Coral, newest magician in the kingdom of Lea, likes helping people. He likes inventing magical toys and solving puzzles. And he definitely likes the shy, kindhearted, heroic artifact hunter who keeps bringing him new challenges. He knows what he wants…but he’s less sure about Morgen’s feelings.

But when Morgen’s latest find comes with a truth-telling curse, Morgen and Averet will have to admit their hidden desires…

“Bisclavret” (featuring a demisexual king and his werewolf!)

BisclavretJMS Books



A very long time ago, in the very old forests of Brittany, a werewolf loved a king…

The Lord Bisclavret has a secret. A family enchantment. A wolf’s curse, transforming him when the moon is full. He hopes to be a good lord for his people, and he’s always been a loyal king’s man, even if the new king is inexperienced and scholarly. But one betrayal might leave him trapped in wolf-shape forever … unless his king can save him.

Andreas would rather be a University scholar than a king, and has no interest in a royal marriage — desire’s always come slowly, if at all. But he loves his kingdom, so he’ll try to protect it, even when rumors of a man-killing wolf spread across his land. He’ll pick up a sword and go out on a hunt, and hope to keep his people safe.

But the wolf has the eyes of a man, and the scholar-king’s knowledge of folklore and fairy-stories might break a werewolf’s curse… with the help of love.

Very loosely based on the twelfth-century story by Marie de France, Bisclavret features a bisexual werewolf lord, a demisexual king who’d rather be a scholar, some exasperated men-at-arms, and very important stolen clothing.

Note: I wrote the first draft of “Bisclavret” several years ago, in grad school, when I read the medieval tale and couldn’t not write the m/m romance version! In some ways it’s a little glimpse of me as a younger author – I’ve revised it since, of course! I’m so proud to see it published by JMS, and I hope you like it!

The Regency is ending, and the new Emperor will take the Galactic Throne, which means he’ll need to choose an Empress. But Arthur has never been a conventional heir, and he’s fascinated by discoveries and languages and new frontiers. And an unconventional starship Captain with a love of the unknown might be exactly who he needs…

After three years of fighting in the service of his mercenary company, Eoan’s ready to lay down his sword and return home. He’s seen enough war and destruction and ruined villages; he only wants to find someplace peaceful and warm where he can figure out a new life.

Julian hadn’t actually meant to entice the tired soldier from the path. He’d only been playing music for himself, and it’s been so long since he’s introduced himself to anyone, he barely recalls his own name.

But now he has a human in his forest, and Eoan clearly needs care and comfort and healing. And Julian’s been very lonely for a very long time. But maybe he doesn’t have to be.
