Jayce Morrow is like any other college student: part academic, part nerd, part dreamer. Adopted by the only family he’s ever known he has no idea of his true identity. Or what his unknown history means. 
Saving the world wasn’t part of his college application, after all. 
When a gorgeous mage appears out of thin air in his apartment, he’s positive he’s dreaming, convinced one of his friends has jumped the shark looking for players for their D&D dungeon by hiring LARPers.
Except there is no dungeon to strategize through. Mages and magic are real. And he’s about to learn his role in saving their world.

Note from the Author: This story is a slow burn MM romance with some really stubborn characters, a few comments about an elf’s amazing hair, and challenges that can mold the man regardless of plans.

LoveBytes review by Sadonna

"...So let me start by saying that I’ve read this author for years – at least a decade.  I have always enjoyed her contemporary romances.  I was also fan of her contemporary shifter fantasy series.  But this is something entirely new and I was kind of blown away..."

Welcome Author Alan Scott to Purple Sword!


Purple Sword is pleased to announce that author Alan Scott is joining us with his Psionic Corps Mystery Series! This themed series will take you on mystery adventures with members of the Psionic Corps, a military agency with special abilities. Stay tuned for upcoming release information!

Paranormal sleuth, Mark Shotridge, has a dream that indicates a cruise ship operating in Alaskan waters is in trouble.  He books passage on the ship to investigate his vision.  After leaving Seward the first night at sea, Mark has another vision that suggests someone has been thrown overboard into the icy waters of the north Pacific.  However, nobody is reported missing, and Mark begins to question his special abilities. 

Soon, a crew member is found murdered in his cabin and Mark is certain that there is more going on than he originally suspected. The body count rises, and he realizes that a serial killer might be on board, but what is the reason behind the murders? 

Mark must use all of his powers to stop a ruthless killer before the ship docks in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Otherwise the tourism industry and the economy of Alaska may be destroyed.
