((Minor Spoiler and Warning at the bottom of the blurb. Please read all the way through.))

The war with Gaelis has gone poorly for Alex’s foes and well for his allies. He’s enriched himself, empowered his county with that coin, and built his county ever higher.

The war swings in favor of his Duchess.

Yet the war still goes on. The end doesn’t seem to be near, nor does Alex feel as if is as simple as he’d once thought it.

Alex would rather settle down in his county and live a quiet and enjoyable life. One filled with familial things and friends. Where he could make his county the pride of the empire in peace.

Because he’d already gotten to the top once before. He’d climbed the corporate ladder in his previous life and missed out on really having one.

Having friends. Or just a family.

Now Alex wants only for the simple things. Things that have no place on the battlefield, kingdom politics, or the courts.

That of course doesn’t matter much when fate is concerned. Or really everyone else in the empire. They all have their own plans that all seem to run counter to Alex’s.

Fortunately, Alex has been preparing. Making changes and building his foundation and seat of power ever higher.

He’s empowered the people he relies on and in. His armies are expertly trained and almost over- equipped. His treasury is overflowing and ready to be spent.

Even with all of that, Alex isn’t sure it’ll be enough for what he believes is coming.

Because spring is here. And that means roads will be opening. Passes will be traversable.

Making it possible for armies to march.

Which means it’s time for Alex to get back to work. Because more than ever he has a lot to lose, including his newborn children. If he wants to keep them safe, he’s going to have to ride to war once again.

And end it once and for all no matter the cost.

Warning: This novel explores dark subjects, and what people will give up of themselves, and each other, to get what they want. The main character is written as a real person in a tough situation and will not make choices that line up with societal and cultural norms.

It contains adult themes and moral ambiguities.

As with my previous work, explicit scenes are found within. It has violence and a harem relationship.

Purchase now!


Fostering Faust 2

Fostering Faust 2

Alex has taken firm control over his County, as the Count of Brit. By and large, everything has settled into a fairly normal pattern for him, his Numbered, and his wife.

The problem of course is there’s still an ongoing war between two Duchies, and Regina Tannulf, Alex’s liege and lord, has plans for him.

Plans that he wants no part of. Except that he doesn’t really have a choice in the matter.

Everything begins to spin back out of control as a messenger from the Wild Lands arrives with a plea for help.

It’s time for Alex to get back to work. Because Leah still owns his soul, and if he wants to keep it safe, he needs to make deals in his favor, in her name.

Fostering Faust


((Minor Spoiler and Warning at the bottom of the blurb. Please read all the way through.))

Alex is dead.

Dead, and apparently with a one way ticket to a place that only the worst of the worst go.

All for a simple choice he made about a product his company owned.

Damned for all time.

Luckily for him, he’s about to be given a chance.

Another choice to make.

He can instead, return to the land of the living, though his soul would belong to another.
Except the world he’s being sent to, isn’t the same one he came from. It’s not even a similar period in time, but from something long past in history.

The dark ages.

And part of the deal to live again, is to make pacts with others. Pacts that would bind the soul of those who take a deal to the same entity who owns Alex’s soul.

How much would you give of yourself to live on is an easy question.

The better question, is how much would you take from others?

If Alex wants to keep living, to keep his soul from being sent to the darkest corner of hell, he’ll have to ask himself that question.

Daily.
