Alex always knew romance would be complicated. When love came into his life with wings and horns, he knew those complications would be a little unusual. Four months after meeting Rachel and Lorelei, Alex finally has a handle on divine visitations, supernatural enemies, and the echoes of reincarnation. He might even survive bringing an angel and a demon home for Christmas with the family. He might not survive what comes next. A favor for friends brings Alex into a heated feud among Seattle's sorcerers. The lords of Hell aren't pleased with the chaos wrought by Lorelei's escape, and they're looking for payback. Worst of all, her angry ex-boyfriend has blown into town...and he just happens to be the Angel of Death.

Sometimes, darkness gives way to light.Helen was supposed to be heading on her honeymoon - off on a sexy trip to Fiji with her long-time fiancé. Her cheating, sleaze-bag, lying fiancé.And so she is off on a trip to the mountains with her best friend Tommy and Tommy's husband Al. Instead of sun and sand, she's heading off to silence and snow.And snow. And snow.A blizzard traps Helen and the two men in their car overnight, where they discover a path to happiness that turns out to have been as inevitable as it is unexpected.(FMM bisexual romance, polyamory)Preview:After another minute or three of awkward silence, Helen muttered, “So. You guys feeling as uncomfortable as I am?”“Yes,” said Tommy through gritted teeth.“No,” said Al, a smirk clearly present in his voice.“No?” Tommy snapped.His husband chuckled. “No, Tommy. Because I’ve figured this was coming for about four years.”“This?” Helen and Tommy asked together.“You’ll forgive me, both of you, but there are three things that have been clear to me for a long time. One: my husband and his best friend find each other very attractive. Two: I am very drawn to you myself, Helen, and get the sense that you find me less than repulsive.”Helen let out a grunt of assent.“And three: Helen’s Ben preferred the company of twinks.” Al’s hand patted Helen’s hip in apology. “I’m sorry I didn’t say anything, Helen. I assumed you knew.”“Not your fault I was stupid.”“Not stupid. Just in love with the wrong guy.” He hugged her, his lips brushing her ear.“Fair.” And suddenly Helen was very clear about what this was. This was her and two men she trusted — even now, when she couldn’t trust herself — sharing intimacy she’d been hungry for for a month. And, as she granted the r 1. Language: English.

Preface To &quote;Meet The Fractals&quote;
6,40 CHF *

This is the story of a group of ten people, five of each gender, who, each for different reasons, have decided that monogamy is an outmoded custom because it is more honoured in the breach than in the observance and that, therefore, adherence to its moral codes and the customs that support it leads to the living of a life based on dishonesty, deceit and hypocrisy both in outward behaviour and in the secret labyrinth of each individual's subconscious. I began intending to write this story in the form of a play, but, having decided on that approach, I soon found that to apply it requires a great deal more preparation in terms of structure, and cast of characters than would either a comedy or a tragedy based on humanity's favourite fable: the love triangle, with its predictable personal geometry and its participatory circle of advisors, onlookers and spurned lovers. Therefore I have to write the preface to the play before writing the play, which is, perhaps, an inversion of the usual order where the preface is written after the play as an apology for it. My need to begin work by writing the preface to an as yet unwritten play arose from the need to bring some order to the chaos of issues that arises from its central proposition: that the human race would benefit from a less dogmatic attitude to the formation of domestic units in which personal bonding and procreation are interwoven through socio-biological cause and effect and embedded in law and common morality. A slight change of moral outlook becomes the fractal that changes the entire geometry of the future. Or so they suppose. Love is often described as a game. We play the 'game of love', hoping to win. But against whom? Against rivals who try to lay claim to our proposed partner? Or to win in games of dominance played with our partner once the primal choice is made? Or against fate, to maintain the partnership against all odds? Over the centuries dramatists have certainly taken the game of wooing and winning seriously, since this opening stage of the game has always attracted the most serious attention of the audience. That same audience has tended to view married life following the initial romance as the subject for comedy, even farce, as witness the vogue throughout Europe during the 18th century for 'revolving door' bedroom comedies dealing with marital infidelities. This changed somewhat during the 19th century with the new vogue for 'realism' in both the novel and in drama, especially opera, where tragic outcomes were common. Fashions revolve too, and in the 20th century, in film and TV sitcoms, married life again became the butt of humour. And so, given the choice of dark tragedy or absurdist humour, I opted for the latter in writing this play about group marriage for, as in all previous variants of the game of love, where dissembling and evasion become tactical necessities, there is nothing funnier than revealed truth. In 'Meet The Fractals' you will meet ten people, five of each gender, who decide to apply the theories of quantum physics to living. They commit to a group marriage: an extreme form of polyamory. They accept that human sexuality is in essence, chaotic, and this chaos is better managed by accepting it than resisting it. The play covers only the first 48 hours of their meeting and their deliberations, during which time they have to ward off attacks by an ambitious politician and an angry puritan. But before the mischief of the play, the earnest enquiry of the Preface.
