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.)

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

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.

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.
