The Moonlight Market

by Aidee Ladnier

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

GENRE: LGBTTQ, Fantasy & Paranormal, New Adult

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

College senior Cory Long tracked his missing sister to the magical Moonlight Market to bring her home. Instead, he found a disorienting world of performers and hawkers, bizarre sights and sounds, and one very familiar showman, Sanderson Beets. Like a drowning man, he latched onto Sanderson, trusting him to navigate the twists and turns of the Market as unerringly as he had steered Cory to passion in their furtive trysts on campus. But Sanderson was tired of being the quickie in the alley. Sanderson Beets had escaped the Moonlight Market to attend college, hoping to settle into a normal life, maybe meet someone and fall in love. To obtain that new life he made a dangerous bargain. And when the sinister woman known as the Weaver of Dreams is involved, second chances always come with strings attached…and sacrifices. Sanderson’s debt has come due, and the only payment he has to offer is Cory, and their chance at a relationship.

 

 

 

Excerpt :

He almost ignored it.

 

Almost.

 

Tiny bells tinkled nearby.

 

They sounded closer.

 

His skin tightened with goose bumps.

 

Niari glided into the pool of light cast by the lantern hanging on the back of the tent. Her long, inky dress brushed the bells on her ankles and pulled the shadows forward with her.

 

“Your debt is coming due.” Her trilling, accented voice floated over the noise from the fairway beyond. In front of the tent children giggled and laughed, the calliope blared out its joyous concert, and the lanterns burned away the darkness. But Sanderson stood in the shadows behind…with her.

 

Sweat coated his palm, and it slipped from the curtain. He swiped at the bead of perspiration on his upper lip, the pit of his stomach icing into a lump.

 

“I found someone.” He blurted out the words. “A lost soul. Someone who’s lost something.”

 

Panic bloomed in Sanderson’s chest. Was he actually going to offer Cory to the Weaver? Cory who just wanted to find his missing sister. Cory of the soft hair, bitable nipples, and beautiful, slim cock. Who made Sanderson feel normal. Like a regular guy.

 

“Good.” Her smile widened, filled with too many tiny teeth that gleamed bright in the lantern light. “Are they tasty and ripe?”

 

“Madame?” Sanderson’s gut twisted at the hard glitter in her eyes. A chill crept down his spine. She looked…hungry.

 

He blinked. Niari stood before him, still and silent, waiting, just a woman again. The malevolent flash must have been a trick of the dim light. He shrugged off the unease and shook the numbness from his fingers.

 

review

Moonlight Market is an M/M story about wanting love, fighting against love, and struggling not to let it go. Then add in some wacky characters, a missing sister, a magical twist in the plot, and you have a great read. I typically don’t read many LGBQT type books, but I really enjoyed this one. It does contain explicit sexual scenes, but the story isn’t drowning in them like some books I’ve come across. There’s a good balance with the explicit content. I found the growing relationship between Cory and Sanderson to be quite sweet. The author’s writing flowed nicely, which is a big plus for me. I hate the nuisance of seeing repeating errors or when I have to re-read sentences, and I had no problems here. As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock, I give (5) hearts and recommend this book to mature audiences 18+ who have an open mind with same sex relationships and enjoy books with love, mystery, magic, drama, and an HEA.

  8. If you could have your own bookshop which five characteristics does it absolutely have to have?

    • Mai Tran, I love your questions!!!

      My ideal bookshop would have:

      1. Loads of shelves full of books in all their nooks and crannies

      2. Squashy sofas and chairs with lots of room to relax and read

      3. A bookshop cat (because snuggles while reading and looking for books are essential)

      4. A tea shop available to so I could get a nice cup of tea to sip or a scone to enjoy while reading

      And lastly…
      5. A secret door that leads to any world that has ever been dreamed up in a book.

      LOL. I hope that answer wasn’t too off the wall.

  9. I appreciate the review!

  10. Thank you for sharing this interesting excerpt!
