Scales of Gold by L. B. La Vigne

Greetings, DDP fans!

L. B. La Vigne, author of Blue, is releasing a self-published merman-human MM romance story this week and we wanted to share the news with you!

Here’s L. B. with what you’ll find in Scales of Gold


Cover-FinalPart 1

When Brandon, a hunter who works for Samson & Sons, follows the rumor of merfolk living in a remote river tributary, he finds exactly what he’s looking for one night while eating dinner. Vez, a solitary golden tailed merman eats the clams he’s given, but casts a wary eye towards Brandon. That only lasts until Brandon goes swimming and they exchange gifts: a red bead that Vez can add to the bracelet of shells he wears, and a chess pawn for Brandon’s favorite board game. After a struggle in the water that ends in a life-giving kiss, Vez is easily wooed when Brandon find a soft spot where his scales end. It’s all over when, after one magical day spent together, Erik Samson himself assists in Vez’s capture.

Merfact: The pouch in the front of Vez’s fin is called a cloaca, and it’s no secret what he’s hiding in there, just like the shiny objects he collects in his underwater home.

Part 2

Vez is stored in a tank that’s too small, with no shelter. The tank is lidless, with an inlaid seating area for viewers. Brandon visits him, and while sitting on the grate that lines the top of the tank, he gives Vez some of his favorite freshwater clams. Later, to convince Brandon to help him, Vez puts on a show for him where he really gets to sparkle. Brandon decides that he only has one option: He has to break Vez out and bring him home. Unfortunately, the only transportation he has is an SUV, and he barely makes it home in time to put Vez in the bath tub. But Vez is in good spirits, and he quickly returns to his playful, if not slightly snarky self.

Merfact: Freshwater merfolk require a different diet than saltwater merfolk. As for Vez, his favorite type of seafood is raw clams.

Part 3

It quickly becomes evident that Brandon isn’t at all prepared to have a merman in his home. But when he comes back from a trip to get groceries, the merman isn’t in the tub. Instead, he’s grown human legs and Brandon is unable to keep his hands off Vez whose inner thighs are too sensitive. When Erik Samson shows up to inquire about the missing merman, the happiness of their morning is threatened. But it’s a good thing that Erik only paid attention to the fact that Vez had a tail, so Erik leaves without recognizing Vez. After spending the morning rolling around in Brandon’s bed, Vez decides that maybe staying in the human world won’t be so bad after all.

Merfact: The shells on Vez’s bracelet contain magical properties that he can use whenever necessary.

Scales of Gold is a 14,000-word novella. If you like sultry mermen, and adore hunkey outdoorsmen, you’ll be captivated by Vez’s playful nature, and Brandon’s rugged edges. When it comes to matters of the heart, true love can be a bit fishy.

A gay young man travels abroad looking for adventure and hot sex, until he meets an attractive Scotsman whose request for kisses make him realize he’s actually running away from his heart, and that gay love might actually exist.

He thought he could escape his heart by traveling far from home. But the heart will not rest when love calls to it.

Jake Coleman is young, gay and horny. He thought there could be no better way to start out his adulthood than a working visa adventure to Kyleakin, Scotland, a tiny town on the Isle of Skye. He works the overnight shift at a hostel and spends most of the daytime hours sleeping. Oh, and he gives blowjobs to pretty much any hostel guest who asks. It’s the perfect arrangement, until he meets Grant.

Grant MacLean, a very attractive Scotsman, is the first person ever to turn down Jake’s middle-of-night blowjob offer. Instead, he wants to kiss Jake, something that is simply off-limits. Grant cares for Jake in ways that remind him too much of Peter, the once-love-of-his-life who he ran away from—the very reason Jake had to escape his former life in Canada. Gay love just doesn’t exist, Jake’s father has made it all too clear. But as Jake finds himself helplessly pulled back to Grant, the way he makes him feel when their bodies are close, the way he comforts him—really cares for him—he realizes more and more it’s not love he’s running from, but himself.

Silent Hearts is a 34,000-word erotic romance novel. If you liked Love, Simon, then you’ll love this tale of a gay young man whose true barrier to love is his own self-acceptance.

Life seems complete as she kicks off her tour with her successful band, FunkTime, knowing her loving boyfriend, Steve, is supporting her shot at fame. Until technical problems dog her performance in their first few shows and the lead musician, Mel Masters, expects her to sort their problems out with their sound engineer, Robbie.

If Trixxi’s technical glitches continue, it won’t just be the end of her career but the end of the band itself.

Will she compromise her faithfulness to her boyfriend? Is the guilt of a secret affair worth saving the fate of FunkTime and what might be their one and only shot at fame?
