Nessa of Cold Spring | G.G. Royale

Nessa of Cold Spring

Nessadella of Cold Spring is a middle child. If that isn’t bad enough, she is also big. A head taller than her sisters and most of the other women at Cold Spring Keep. She hates gowns, she intimidates most men, and she can’t dance or embroider. She doesn’t quite fit in.

Except as commander of the keep’s homeguard.

And as a fighter.

While she’s found comfort and acceptance at home, her dream is to leave the walls of the family’s castle and fight in a tournament, to prove to the king she’s just as good as any other knight in the land. She gets her wish and more. She ties the melee with a man who kindled a fire within her at first sight. The king’s bastard brother, Sir Eirle. He’s heard of Nessa and wants her just as badly.

The beginnings of their relationship are tested when the princess is kidnapped and the House of Cold Spring framed. Nessa, her brother, and Sir Eirle must first escape the king, and then track down the real kidnappers, to clear Cold Spring’s name.

Seasons of Change 2: Rockin' the Nog | Michelle King

Seasons of Change 2: Rockin’ the Nog

Kyle had been riding in the back of Logan’s cab for months—so he could become a familiar face among Portland’s rent boy culture for his case. His job as a county prosecutor often made relationships difficult and his gayness continued to be a stressor, law of the land or not. More problematic, the driver of the cab Logan was triggering every bit of interest he had.

What he wouldn’t give to be able to touch and taste that guy…but no. He was there for his case. And getting a blow on the “down low”, while enjoyable, only took the edge off.

Twice a month, Logan drove the city attorney around Portland’s seedier streets, playing tour guide to the man he’d come to like. To really like, and wanted to “like” more.

Earlier that week, Logan had received a text canceling this Friday’s trip into “the Dark Side.” Canceling a cab ride was fine but he wasn’t interested in canceling his time with Kyle. He’d already formed a plan for their evening that began with a glass of eggnog.
