Aster Glenn Gray

Aster Glenn Gray writes fantasies with a romantic twist, or romances with a fantastic twist. (And maybe other things too. She is still a work in progress.) When she is not writing, she spends much of her time haunting libraries, taking long walks, and dreaming about trips to faraway lands.


Enemies to Lovers – Aster Glenn Gray

Handcuffed together. Only one bed. Which will win: Megan and Sarah’s sizzling sexual attraction, or their compulsion to correct each other’s atrocious fandom opinions?

Shy library science student by day, fanfic writer by night, Megan is thrilled when she discovers her new crush Sarah shares her favorite fandom. Smart, gorgeous, and brashly confident in her thoughts on fandom, Sarah is Megan’s dream girl… until Megan realizes that Sarah is also her Tumblr nemesis, who called Megan’s popular ongoing fic “the cancer that is killing fandom.” Clearly, they must never speak again.

But when a writing club exercise leaves them handcuffed together, they have no choice but to duke out their differences, until they reach an agreement on the most important question of all: is hatesex as insanely hot in real life as it is in fic? (Yes. Yes, it is, at least in this steamy f/f novelette.)


The Witch and the Warrior – Susannah Adele

Herb witch Fern can heal wounds and sickness, but not her own broken heart. But maybe the warrior Nismaya can…

Fern carries the guilt and grief of being unable to save the woman she loved. But a mission to a remote and icy village under attack by supernatural forces may be the second chance she needs. Accompanied by her familiar, a tiny moss-otter, Fern sets out in a last-chance attempt to prove herself.

She is instantly drawn to village protector Nismaya, feeling an immediate connection even though the two women don’t speak each other’s language. But there is more than one way to communicate, and when they are joined in an accidental magical soulbond, Fern begins to open her heart to possibilities she thought would be forever out of her reach.

That is, if a deadly magical enemy doesn’t kill them both first.

The Witch and the Warrior is a fantasy romance full of intricate worldbuilding and eerie magic.

This book was originally published as The Taitaja.


All Manner of Hats – Elva Birch

Milliner Valentina Briggston is on a mission of marriage. She has selected her quarry, a rich widower who won’t interfere with her independence, with the same care that she has built her successful business of (slightly magical) women’s hats. Unfortunately, she finds herself with a rival, the fiery and fashion-defying Charlotte Jones, who is disturbingly beautiful, unexpectedly clever, and, if Valentina is being honest with herself, much more interesting than the man in their sights. 

When their intended husband-of-convenience becomes the target of supernatural mischief, the two rivals reluctantly have to collaborate to figure out who—or what—is trying to terrify him…and why. What starts as a truce to protect their interests ends up as an opportunity for happiness that neither of them saw coming.

All Manner of Hats is a short, sweet lesbian romp of manners with magic, ghost horses, and cunning hats, in a steampunk-flavored world of dirigibles, duels, and cityships.

Women and Cats Shall Do As They Please – Ace Olusola

Christie doesn’t believe in magic.

Christie is the sensible, pragmatic sort, and she’s just looking for a place to heal her broken heart.  Thea, her childhood best friend, offers a perfect solution: Christie can stay with her as long as she wants, and all she has to do is take care of Thea’s many adopted stray cats so Thea can focus on her independent film career.  With a chance to catch up and reconnect, it’ll be just like old times.

Magic is Thea’s business.

Thea’s made a name for herself with video travelogues of fantastical worlds: the perfect setting for her warm personality and love of life to shine.  But she has a secret she doesn’t trust to anyone.  These amazing places aren’t the product of special effects genius.  They’re real.  And the cats she takes care of are the key.

Worlds collide…

When Thea disappears, Christie is pulled into an adventure of talking cats, courtly crows, and a door which opens into other worlds.  But in the midst of all these marvels, her greatest quest is to uncover the desires of her heart.

Women and Cats Shall Do as They Please is a lighthearted F/F friends-to-lovers adventure with a guaranteed happy ending.  Open the door to this magical book today!
