Magic takes many forms. From malignant hexes to love charms gone amok, you’ll find a vast array of spells and curses, creatures and conjurings in this massive collection—not to mention a steamy dose of man-on-man action. Charmed and Dangerous features all-new stories of gay paranormal romance, supernatural fiction and urban fantasy by ten top m/m paranormal authors.
Rhys Ford - Dim Sum Asylum For Detective Roku MacCormick, working Arcane Crimes is his passion. Now cleared of any wrongdoing for shooting his last partner, MacCormick is given back his badge… as well as a new case and partner. Trent Leonard isn’t exactly what he’d expected, but then nothing in San Francisco’s Chinatown ever is.
Ginn Hale - Swift and the Black Dog When Jack Swift killed a tyrant and won the revolution he became a national hero. But someone in the new government prefers dead heroes to living, swearing, cynical wizards. Caught between bullets, revenge and desire, Jack had better be swift indeed.
KJ Charles - A Queer Trade Apprentice magician Crispin Tredarloe returns to London to find his master dead, and his papers sold. Papers with secrets that could spell death. Waste paper seller Ned Hall can’t resist Crispin’s pleading—and appealing—looks. But can the wasteman and the magician prevent a disaster and save Crispin’s skin?
Nicole Kimberling - Magically Delicious Occult attacks against NIAD agents aren’t remotely Keith Curry’s department. But when his lover, Gunther, is assaulted, Keith refuses to just sit back and fill out paperwork. He’s on the case—even if that means enraging powerful mages, crossing leprechaun picket lines, or braving dinner with Gunther’s goblin parents.
Jordan Castillo Price - Everyone's Afraid of Clowns Psychic medium Victor Bayne can spot a ghost any day of the year, but Halloween holds some special surprises. His psych-groupie boyfriend Jacob coaxes him to the location of an old spirit sighting, but they can’t ghosthunt without enduring a cheesy “haunted house” that’s even more disturbing than they realize.
Jordan L. Hawk - The Thirteenth Hex Hexman Dominic Kopecky doesn’t understand why dashing crow familiar Rook wants his help investigating murder by patent hex. For one thing, Dominic isn’t a witch. For another, the case is already closed—and someone is willing to kill to keep it that way.
Charlie Cochet - The Soldati Prince Riley Murrough goes from serving lattes to being chased by demons. If that wasn’t bad enough, he bears the mark of a shapeshifter king from a magical realm. Riley’s determined to get answers, but if the demons out for his blood don’t kill him, the urge to strangle the arrogant king might.
Lou Harper - One Hex Too Many Veteran detective Mike Mulligan is an expert on violent crimes—of the occult variety. He might even be cursed. Detective Hugh Fox is eager to partner up and prove himself, but Mulligan is accustomed to flying solo. Can they trust each other enough to track a killer who’ll stop at nothing, not even summoning a demon?
Andrea Speed - Josh of the Damned vs. the Bathroom of Doom It's a boring night at the Quik-Mart for Josh and his friend Doug. Until a vampire with a grudge—and the most adorable backup ever—crashes the store. Can Josh survive the Bathroom of Doom?
Astrid Amara - The Trouble With Hexes P.I. Tim Keller has a problem. And the only person who can solve it is his ex-boyfriend, Vincent, whose job as a hexbreaker was the reason they broke up. It’s hard admitting he was wrong, especially when coughing up organs. But there’s a missing person to find, a hexmaker to hunt down, and a romance to repair before Tim breathes his last.

When I saw the lineup of these authors, I wanted to squee with joy! The best of the best in M/M paranormal all in one collection. And let me tell you, they did not disappoint!
Let me start by saying, I’m not a short fiction reader. I don’t read short stories, and I rarely will read a novella. I like the room for character development found in big books. So if it weren’t for all of my favorite authors in one place, I probably would’ve skipped this collection.
But holy frijoles! I’m soooo glad I didn’t.
These authors are the best for a reason. They can pack a lot of punch in a short piece. It helped that several of the stories (Jordan Castillo Price, K.J. Charles, Andrea Speed) are from existing series that I am already a fan of. And – full disclosure – I received a free e-book in exchange for an honest review, but the first thing I did when I finished reading was to run to Amazon and buy the paperback for...
Charmed and Dangerous edited by Jordan Castillo Price
Subtitled “Ten Tales of Gay Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy”. I have only read one of the authors in this collection, although three others are in my library to read. I love m/m romance, but add the elements of the paranormal, of magic, and I’m in! Short story collections are where I find new authors, even more than recommendations from trusted friends and book sites. 4 out of 5.
“Dim Sum Asylum” by Rhys Ford. After being forced to shoot his thieving detective partner, half-Fae Roku McCormick is given a new partner, another human. Roku is instantly attracted, but doesn’t believe Trent Leonard feels the same. This urban fantasy has one of most exotic locations, Chinatown in San Francisco, ramped up to extraordinary heights. It wasn’t magic when Roku and Trent got together, it was explosive! I enjoyed the story. I definitely would love to see if the...
“Dim Sum Asylum” by Rhys Ford = 4 Stars
The main character, Roku MacCormack, is well-fleshed out. However, his new partner comes along too late in the story for the same treatment. It is unclear whether the action is taking place in an alternate universe or the future of our current one. Editing errors are limited to missing, extra or reversed words in several sentences.
“Swift & the Black Dog” by Ginn Hale = 4 Stars
A post-revolutionary tale set in an unknown universe in an unknown time frame. The main character, Jack Swift, is well-developed and realistic but the short story format makes the physical universe, The Ledges, harder to visualize. A dark fantasy, with harsh violence, that ends with the promise of love and hope.
“ A Queer Trade" by K J Charles = 4 stars
An interracial historical paranormal set in the London area. An apprentice spellslinger searches for his dead master’s...
