The Gate of Chalandros

A Medieval-Style Paranormal Demon Romance

Whisky and Lace – Book One

The Gate of Chalandros is a mystical portal connecting the human world to the demon one. No one knows when or how it came into existence…

Nalyx has dedicated his life to defending the human world from the hoards of demons attempting to cross the Gate of Chalandros. He lives for his sword, his honour, and the bevy of beautiful women waiting eagerly to reward the warriors each time the Gate closes. But when a serious injury puts Nalyx’s career at risk, he finds himself adrift, fearing he is to lose everything he’s worked so hard to achieve.

Gantalla’s world has been turned upside down. Drought, famine and unending heat waves are destroying her homeland of Chalandros, and her only hope for survival is to cross the dreaded Gate into the human world. But the journey is perilous, with an army of warriors poised to kill anyone who dares to set foot on human territory.

Against all odds, Gantalla survives the crossing, only to discover that life disguised as a human, in the bustling city of Minia, is far more confusing than she could have imagined. After a series of missteps, she inadvertently finds herself nursing a warrior who was badly injured in the latest battle. Nalyx presents a confounding mix of charm and vulnerability, but Gantalla can’t let herself get too comfortable with him. After all, if he ever found out what she really was, he wouldn’t hesitate to kill her…

Wings of the Night – Book Two

The Gate of Chalandros is a mystical portal connecting the human world to the demon one. No one knows when or how it came into existence…

As a proud soldier of the salases, a black-skinned, horned species of warriors, Koradan has dedicated his life to serving the King of Chalandros. But heat, drought and famine are tearing his world apart, and so Koradan and a small company of his men are forced to cross the Gate of Chalandros into the human world. They mean to settle peacefully in the mountains, away from human civilisation, but when one of their dragon mounts is badly wounded, they are forced to make an emergency landing in a small, isolated village.

Lynette moved to the quiet mountainside village of Varismont ten years ago, after the death of her husband, to raise her only son in peace. But her tranquil life is shattered when a group of demons and their dragons land in the village in the dead of the night. Fearing for their lives, the villagers are forced to broker a deal with the demons – a deal in which Lynette, as the village’s only nurse, is expected to treat their wounded dragon and in doing so, get up close and personal with Koradan, the demons’ leader.

The longer Koradan and his men spend in the village, the more Lynette is forced to reconsider her views on the so-called ‘demons’ who are attempting to cross the mystical Gate. But Koradan wants far more than just a few medical supplies for the dragon. He speaks of negotiating peace between humans and demons – an idea that Lynette finds ludicrous. After all, everyone knows that demons are evil, and therefore not to be trusted…

Inferno – Book Three

The Gate of Chalandros is a mystical portal connecting the human world to the demon one. No one knows when or how it came into existence…

It has been four years since Nerik crossed the Gate of Chalandros into the human world. Four years since he evaded the army of warriors waiting to slaughter him on sight and slipped away into the darkness. Somehow, he’s managed to make a life for himself living alongside humans. But he’s never able to let his guard down, never able to take his place here for granted. Because beneath his human disguise, Nerik is a fire demon, an infernal; a creature that the humans consider to be pure evil.

Yorin has lived in Minia his whole life, making a humble living as a tailor. But quiet days and lonely nights are wearing on him. He longs to give in to his feelings for Nerik, nurtured in private over long years while the pair of them have remained nothing more than acquaintances. But could he really risk his reputation by dating another man? Could he ever find the courage to declare his feelings publicly?

Nerik realises he’s taking an enormous risk in attempting to woo Yorin. The human is a distraction from his duties to the other Chalandrians, with refugees in their thousands still seeking a way across the dreaded Gate. But there has to be more to life than running illicit messages and escorting fugitives to safe-houses. Yorin is the one bright spot in Nerik’s life, something worth taking risks for. But how is he to win Yorin’s heart when he can’t even tell him who he really is?
