Summary

"He was skilled by now at making innocuous remarks in the presence of the Shining Ones. Nobody had even guessed that he knew what they were."

 
The Eternal Dungeon is filled with prisoners who shine like the sun.

 
No one knows this except Barrett Boyd, a guard notorious for having survived a disciplinary punishment that should have killed him. He is also notorious for his rebellion against the authorities of the royal prison. At a pivotal time in the Eternal Dungeon's history, when abusive practices of the past may finally be abolished, Barrett finds himself drawn to the mystery of a younger guard, Clifford Crofford, who claims that he and Barrett are love-mates.

 
Barrett has no memory of this. He has no memory of anything before his punishment. What does the past matter, compared to Barrett's determination to protect the prisoners? But Barrett cannot ignore his bond with Clifford, and the closer that Barrett comes to Clifford, the more the danger arises that Clifford will question Barrett's sanity. . . .

 
This novelette (miniature novel) of disability and love can be read on its own or as a side story in The Eternal Dungeon, an award-winning speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips.

 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Dark Light, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, and The Eternal Dungeon) about disreputable men on the margins of society, and the men and women who care for them. Set between the 1880s and the 1910s, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. One of the series in the cycle, Waterman, combines elements of the 1910s with retrofuturistic imagery from the 1960s.

    Two dudes walk into a bookstore… 
    Tristan knows he's got issues. His latest ex-girlfriend knows it too. He can't blame her for dumping him—even though she gets her brother to do it for her. Since he can't stop staring at said brother's package, he figures it's about time to put a label on those issues. He likes guys. 
    He heads to a local bookstore with what he's sure is a foolproof plan to find someone to show him what he's been missing. But who should crash his little adventure? Officer Michael Truax, who gave him a really expensive ticket back in high school for skateboarding without a helmet. 
    Michael has been trying to catch Tristan for years…to give him a second ticket. Suddenly faced with "Sparky", all grown up and looking to get laid, Michael's protective instinct kicks in—and presents him with an opportunity that's hard to resist. After all, the kid must know what he's getting into, so why not? 
    But when a man with a plan connects with a man with a hunger, the result is nothing short of explosive.

    Reviews 
    ★★★★★ "This is a fun tale of new love between a newly minted gay guy and a slightly older but not necessarily wiser older guy who just happens to take that whole "protect and serve" thing literally. The writing is entertaining and laugh out loud funny in spots while being sweetly sappy in others. There are issues here involving the boys in blue that I've not seen in an MM romance before, and I quite liked the way that it was handled…"  — Hearts on Fire Reviews 
    ★★★★ "Overall, it was sweet, sexy read. I would recommend it to readers who love age difference love stories and don't mind a couple who falls hard and fast for each other…." — Reviews by Jessewave 
    ★★★★ "This was one hot read. I was totally not expecting this book to be as hot as it was. … As much sex as there was in the pages of Crossing Borders I felt that the love that Tristan and Michael found was done into a really sweet love story. The sweet and sexy worked well together. …." — The Jeep Diva
