Hiding the truth is never easy, but it’s something Jamie Kincaid has gotten pretty good at over the years—just like ignoring the fact he’s in love with his best friend. And after pretending for so long, there’s no way he’s going to risk what they have by fessing up about his true feelings.
Not to mention that other secret he’s been concealing since they were thirteen; a secret Jamie swears he’ll take to his grave.
But it turns out, his best friend has secrets too. Deadly secrets, which means Jamie might end up keeping his vow after all.
MORTEM OBIRE is a MM, best friends-to-lovers paranormal romance novella about ghosts, serial killers, and a deep-rooted fear of Halloween. There’s a healthy dose of angst mixed in with the steamy moments between two guys who are “just friends,” all the Halloween vibes, and a cameo by one lovable goat. It is intended for a mature audience and reader discretion is advised. A full list of triggers can be found in the front matter of the book and at my website under Tropes & Triggers.
This book can be read as a standalone from the rest of the Tennebrose series. It does include previously established characters, but not in a way that would negatively impact your reading enjoyment.
