Discover Another Author & Silapa Jarun Intro

I'm in love with interracial M x M stories and ZACK AND THE DARK SHAFT by Gracie C. McKeever from http://www.sirenpublishing.com/ was exactly what I was looking for.

I found this quick read to be a fascinating take on the theme of sibling rivalry in the form of jealousy between twins and a dose of the paranormal to be a perfect balance with the hot scenes.

Zack and Zara have their eyes on the same man, Quincy Powers, aka "big handsome". Quincy however is a complex man who struggles to appreciate Zara and Zack as individuals because although twins their personalities are unique.

When Zara is given a second chance at life, she'll use it to pursue long-time friend Quincy using her sibling's body. It's up to the night club owner to find out what he really wants in life and choose between the two people he cares about the most.

I loved how McKeever gave Zara a very unique, and often humorous voice to contrast with Zack who is a bit more reserved. This isn't your average love triangle folks! (^_^) I highly recommend this book. Learn more about the author and her other works at Siren here:http://www.graciecmckeever.com/
Not only do I read M x M stories I also get a chance to escape by writing them!

I was immediately drawn to ZACK AND THE DARK SHAFT because I've always been fascinated with twins and their psychological and some say paranormal bond. I recently completed KATANA DUET: Samurai's Forbidden Love which is about identical samurai twins who immigrate to the United States in the 1870s only to find out that their journey begins and ends in their hearts.

The Matsumoto brother's relationship is contrasted with another pair of siblings, Klara and Konrad, who will stop at nothing to attain their own illicit love, even if it means betraying their foreign housemates.

I hope fans of mxm and yaoi who are looking for a dark and intense story will find this work to be memorable.

Silapa,

Thanks so much for the write-up! I am so glad you enjoyed ZATDS :)

I've just recently become a fan of yaoi (in the last 6 months or so) and will definitely be checkoug out the Katana Duet (twins, as you can see are another favorite subject of mine :) And your story sounds like a totally illicit and intriguing read--right up my alley, LOL.

Wishing you mega sales and much success with Katana Duet!
