Dawn posted a great review up on Love Romances and More of Chasing Fear, my first Halloween short story. I've always liked this one and it's great to hear that someone's enjoyed it.
CHASING FEAR is a short story that will keep the reader intrigued till the very end. I don’t want to give too much away but have to admit, this was a perfect story to get my manlove fix one afternoon. Short, sweet and oh so sexy, CHASING FEAR is a delight to anyone who wants to experience this author’s writing style. Ms. Benedetti is a talented author who definitely knows how to make the reader get intrigued by having a unique character as a Greenman. I haven’t read a story that contained this type of character before and found myself wishing the story was a bit longer as it whetted my appetite to know more about Emilio and Martin. The writing was tight and the story was fast paced as it raced to the sexy ending.
Meet Emilio, a man who is in a relationship with a greenman, a man who can wield nature magic. Scared to show he is in a gay relationship, he finds himself forced to confront the issue when Martin finds him in the forest. Can Emilio let go of his hang-ups to enjoy the exquisite desire Martin inflames in him? Martin is a greenman and one who enjoys showing the world he is openly gay and in a great relationship. Knowing Emilio is holding back, he finds his lover dawdling in the forest on their annual date night-Halloween- and Martin takes measures into his own hands as he shows Emilio that pleasure can be just as enjoyable in the open as it is behind closed doors. These two are great characters to read about. Different and unique, they also step off the pages to captivate the reader till the very end. I was hoping Emilio would let go of all his fears and let Martin show him how pleasurable desire is out in the open. The sex scenes were tasteful and got your motor running. I was eager to see what exquisite delights Martin had in store for Emilio once he caught up with him.
CHASING FEAR is a wonderful story that will leave you hankering for more. I raced to the author’s website to see if there were some more stories set in the Hidden Magic world. If you want to try this author’s writing out, this is definitely a way to do it. This is a great paranormal tale that will leave you longing for more.
If you've read and enjoyed "Chasing Fear," there's a free sequel up on my web site called Catching Courage.
