Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway – Another Place in Time Blog Tour: Unfair in Love and War by Kaje Harper

Welcome to another place in time…where one can be swept away into lands and eras long forgotten.

This collection of short stories was birthed because a sworn “I don’t like historicals” reader fell in love with what have become some of her favorite books by most of her favorite writers. Surprisingly, they were all historicals. Determined to make others feel the love, these authors were asked to contribute small tastes of how amazing historical storytelling can be.

Included in this anthology:

“Office Romance” by Tamara Allen
“Introducing Mr. Winterbourne” by Joanna Chambers
“The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh” by KJ Charles
“Unfair in Love and War” by Kaje Harper
“Carousel” by Jordan L. Hawk
“Deliverance” by Aleksandr Voinov

Along with a foreword written by Alex Beecroft, enjoy these original short stories that make up Another Place in Time.

All proceeds from the purchase of this anthology will be donated to AllOut.org in celebration of LGBT History Month, October 2014.

Blurbs:

“Office Romance” by Tamara Allen
The post-war economy is at a standstill, much like Foster Wetherly’s life until he’s forced to do battle with irritatingly confident—and competent—fellow ex-doughboy Casey Gladwin for a position in their shrinking department at Manhattan Security Mutual.

“Introducing Mr. Winterbourne” by Joanna Chambers
Lysander Winterbourne appears to lead a charmed life. Handsome, amiable, and a renowned sportsman, he is the darling of London society. As far as Adam Freeman is concerned though, Lysander is just another spoiled aristocrat.

A wealthy mill owner, Adam has no time for the frivolous world of the ton, but when his younger brother becomes engaged to Althea Winterbourne, he reluctantly agrees to be introduced to society–with the Winterbourne clan’s golden boy as his guide.

Resigning himself to a few days of boredom, Adam is surprised to learn that there is much more to Lysander than his perfect surface. But will Adam have the courage to introduce Lysander Winterbourne to his own secret self?

“The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh” by KJ Charles
Lord Gabriel Ashleigh is a ruined man. Last night he lost everything at the card tables to his brother’s worst enemy, notorious gambler Francis Webster. Tonight, he’s going back for one more game. Ash thinks he has nothing left to lose. But Francis sets the stakes, and they’re higher than Ash could have imagined…

Two Regency bucks. One game of cards. Everything to play for.

“Unfair in Love and War” by Kaje Harper
Many men lost brothers overseas in the summer of 1944. Warren Burch was one of them. For months he still clung to his big city life in Philadelphia, but finally he’s made the difficult choice to return to his home town. Warren’s polio-stricken leg won’t let him serve, so the least he can do is be there for his mother, when brother Charlie never again will. Arriving home means a whole new life, constrained by the rhythms and prejudices of a small town. Fortunately, it’s made more interesting by the mysterious and attractive young man next door.

“Carousel” by Jordan L. Hawk
When a child goes missing, is it a simple case of a young runaway, or are more sinister forces at work?

“Carousel” is part of the Whyborne & Griffin series and takes place between the events of Stormhaven and Necropolis. It can be read as a standalone.

“Deliverance” by Aleksandr Voinov
This is a re-vamped, re-edited, improved version of “Deliverance”. It’s about William Raven, a templar, who thought he’d escaped his past.

Excerpt: Warren smiled, letting a bit of heat show. “My mother will be at church for another hour. I thought we might get the chores done fast.” There. If that wasn’t a clear invitation, nothing

Stefan took a short, sharp breath. “Chores might wait.”

“Good idea.” Warren reached for him slowly, certain by now he was wanted, but far from sure Stefan might not still spook. Stefan’s pupils were blown wide, and a fine tremor shook the tumblers he held. Warren put his hands on the glasses, pried them slowly out of Stefan’s grip, and set them in the sink. He held Stefan’s gaze. “Yes?”

“Yes.” Stefan lunged, no other word for it, his hand tight on Warren’s hip, eyes eager as they pressed together. Then he jumped back. “Not here. Upstairs. Safer. I will lock the doors.”

Warren could understand the desire for caution. “Where?”

“My bedroom. Left at the top of the stair.” Stefan snapped the latch over on the back door and headed for the front.

Warren climbed the stairs and turned into a room the mirror image of his own. Heavy drapes hung beside the window, and he pulled them across the glass, dimming the room.

Downstairs he could hear Stefan’s footsteps, hurrying, crossing the house for something. He hesitated, then reached for his shirt buttons. He wanted to make it impossible to go any way but forward.

By the time Stefan reached the room, Warren was naked and stretched out on the narrow single bed. He thought his instincts had been good, because Stefan came in saying, “We do not have to . . .” And then he stopped, staring at him.

Warren looked up from where he lay, his shoulders propped on Stefan’s pillows, and twitched the sheet off his hips, baring his erection blatantly. “Yeah. We kind of do.”

    This sounds awesome…I love accurate historical accountings even in fictional book so things don’t get lost…like what some places are trying to do to educational textbooks (rewriting historical perspective and retconning)
