The Spare and The Heir: Calder

Illustrated Romance

Thorne Magnus Calder, heir to the Duke of St. Cyr, has been betrayed by his own heart. 

Watching the man he loves court the lovely Lady Alain was a pain so visceral he quit London but when Calder receives word that Quinn and Celeste are married it’s a vow Calder refuses to break.

Lord Quintin Wyntor's heart has always belonged to Calder but a relationship with another man is a crime neither is willing to face. The strain drives a wedge between them. 

As a man of honor, Quinn marries the very woman who drove the last wedge between he and his lover but he never anticipated she would hand him the key to his own freedom.

When Lady Alain forces Quinn to accept that his love for Calder cannot be denied, Quinn realizes that the risks they’ll face together may not be as dangerous as their desolation as they attempt to survive apart.

As Quinn chases Calder to India one thing is certain—Quinn will not return to England without the man he loves and if they can conquer their differences, together their little triumvirate may be given the grace to survive.



This book is the story of Calder and Quinn and has their happily ever after with Celeste.

Warning: You’re going to fall in love, and it’s going to hurt.

She had no idea what passion was, 
Until she saw them... 


Lady Alain needs a husband, and Quintin Wyntor will do just fine. 
She plans to offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence, something any bachelor in England would be happy for. 

But she didn't know his mistress would be a mister. 

When she sees them together something is stirred. 
Desire is ignited. But she still doesn't want to be touched. Celeste knows that Quinn was meant for Calder, but she can't deny the way she feels. 

When Calder leaves the country, Quinn is devastated. He decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart but in one unchecked moment of passion, mutual need spins out of control and marriage is the only way to protect her.


This book is the story of Celeste and has her happily for now. 
It is also the beginning of Calder and Quinn's story which is continued in THE SPARE AND THE HEIR. 

This book is an autochorissexual romance (on the asexual spectrum) but contains important pieces of a gay romance. 
Both are explicit. 

Warning: You're going to fall in love, and it's going to hurt.

The acclaimed modern science fiction masterpiece, included on Library Journal's Best SFF of 2016, the Barnes & Nobles Sci-Fi Fantasy Blog Best Books of 2015, the Tor.com Best Books of 2015, Reader’s Choice, as well as nominated for the Arthur C.

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.

Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.

Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy—exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs—an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide
