On the other side of the Veil, dark and light fae exist outside the knowledge of most humans. Nathan Grier was born human, but his twin brother Jim is a changeling. On the run since they were children, time for both of them is running out. Turning to fae hunter Sasha Kelly for help, Nathan must soon face his growing feelings for the other man while trying to save himself and his brother from a fate worse than death.

CHANGELING: Nathan Grier’s dark fae bounty looms overhead. As he faces the very real threat of becoming a slave to the bounty’s owner, his brother Jim uses his changeling abilities more and more trying to save him. Every changeling throughout history turns evil once their powers manifest, meaning time may be running out for both of them as Jim nears True Awakening.
Fae hunter and incubus, Sasha Kelly, is prophesized to save Nathan, but while Nathan has embraced his feelings for the other man, he fears their time together will be cut short—either from his impending fate…or Jim’s.
Read an excerpt:
“All joking and carnal intentions aside…you have been a good friend,” Sasha said soft and breathy, “and I’ve really needed that. Like you wouldn’t believe, I’ve needed that. So…whatever else might happen…I’m just thankful for you.”
The intensity of the moment—physically and deeper—struck Nathan right at the curve of his neck as his face flushed. He felt that maybe this was one of those moments where a reaffirmation of ‘I love you’ was appropriate, but something else formed on his lips instead.
“Damn you’re heavy,” Nathan breathed through a smile, gasping again when Sasha bucked his hips forward with a little more force.
“Shut up,” the incubus smirked back. He leaned in, his legs wrapping around the chair, his chest slick and smooth as Nathan pressed his palms there and slid his hands along Sasha’s skin to his back.
Sasha made Nathan’s whole mouth tingle when they kissed, that skilled tongue caressing his own so deeply, lips soft and demanding but somehow giving too. No one kissed that good, so completely and in need that Nathan felt himself drawn right into the incubus like a willing victim. He almost laughed to think that that was exactly what he was.
Nathan’s hands moved up to Sasha’s shoulder blades and down again, feeling the dip of Sasha’s lower back, and then straying lower right into the folds of the towel to caress down the smooth bare skin of Sasha’s backside. Nathan stayed only long enough to tug Sasha closer before sliding his hands up again, to which the incubus whined against Nathan’s lips.
Interview with the Author:
Have you ever Googled yourself?
I Google myself a lot actually, mostly to see if any reviews snuck away from my attention. What’s great is with my unique name (thanks to my husband), if you Google “Amanda Meuwissen”…you pretty much only get me and my work.
Do you ever run into someone who says “You write WHAT?”
I don’t think people find it surprising that I love sci-fi/fantasy and all inherent variations. Maybe it’s the tattoos, bright hair colors, crazy clothes, and tendency to wax poetic about all of the same. The gay romance part, well, usually it’s more polite nods. The best is when someone is shocked, reads it anyway…and ends up loving it.
If you could visit any place in the world or a place created by a book, where would you visit?
Coruscant (city planet from Star Wars and capital planet of the Republic). I’m a sucker for cityscapes in general, but first seeing Coruscant in the newer movies (regardless of your thoughts on those movies) and then navigating it personally playing Stars Wars: The Old Republic…I could get lost for hours just marveling at its beauty. I’d love to be able to visit there for real…and be a Jedi.
If you could write outside your genre what would that be?
I’ve always wanted to write nonfiction. I have some great ideas percolating but just can’t find the time to write that AND fiction. One of these days though, I’ll do it, especially an idea I have on female perception of beauty.
What are your thoughts on ebooks? (i.e. love them, hate them, wave of the future)
I’m a paperback person; I need to hold the book in my hands (fanfiction addiction online aside), but a lot of my sales come from eBooks, and I get more off each sale since there isn’t any associated cost like there is with print. I’m all for every format, since each person has a different preference, but I definitely think you should always offer all options: print, eBook, and audiobook.
Nathan is such a complex, fascinating character. I wasn’t sure going into to this book what to expect. M/M can be tricky. It’s either to graphic or the author wusses out and white-washes it. Amanda totally hit it out of the park in both books. They had an awesome fae element, which I LOVE. Sasha and Nathan had such chemistry it almost sparked off the page and the brothers were so close yet so far apart it almost brought tears to your eyes. Amanda definitely has caught my attention and I will be on the look out for more of her books.
