Bear Bones Books proudly presents its fourteenth title, Desire & Devour: Stories of Blood & Sweat, by Jeff Mann.
The longing for the touch of men. The edge of hunger. The need for supplicants craving a sweaty embrace, a passionate tryst in the dark.
To drink, to dispatch, to swallow. To quench one’s unimaginable thirst. To leave an empty vessel behind as one walks away into the night.
More than a hundred and fifty years before Dracula ever touched English soil, Scottish Highlander Derek Maclaine became one of the undead to bring a terrible vengeance on those who had taken the man he loved.
But revenge could not sate his appetites for sweat and blood through the years; an immortal learns to survive, to love again, as the lives of mortals are bright and brief flames that attract vampires like amorous moths.
Award-winning author Jeff Mann has collected his erotic and powerful stories of Derek’s unlife, adventures that travel centuries and the globe.
Loosen your collar, bare your throat, sigh in expectation, but do not forget to shiver as this burly and brawny stalker of men steps behind you, to brush his beard against your neck as his hands grasp you where you most need to be touched.
“Whether he’s writing poetry, erotic short stories, or novels, Jeff Mann brings a fluency to the form at hand and a dose of man-to-man electricity generated by shifting power dynamics.” — Kilian Melloy, on Jeff Mann’s Edge
