Summary

Every city has its own rhythm, its own beat and character; none more so than Barcelona. To commemorate the 2016 European Science Fiction Convention being held in this historic city, NewCon Press invited many of Spain’s top SF and fantasy authors to join those from Britain, France, and Canada to write stories that cast the city in a whole new light. Original stories from the likes of multiple award-winning Elia Barceló (whose work has been translated into eighteen languages), and Spain’s most decorated genre author Rodolfo Martínez, sit alongside tales from two-times Nebula winner Aliette de Bodard, Campbell Award-winner Lisa Tuttle, multiple award-winning author Ian Watson and more.

    Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck . . . but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure. 
    Well, if not forever, at least two hundred years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he's seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck . . . he just couldn't resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long . . .

    That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course! 
    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that? 
    Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

    Ever since the day a fae raid stole away my parents, poverty and scavenging have been my life. I live in the human slums of Chimra, though it was once known as the great city of Chicago. The fae rule over New Earth and humanity with a neglectful and ruthless fist. But everything changes when Gabreon, the fae lord who led that raid six years ago, finds me in the forbidden dumping grounds and claims me as his own. His actions lead to anger, confusion, and heartache—on my side and his. Lina. The human Gabreon couldn’t forget. When he sees her in the dumping grounds, he no longer can ignore the pull between them. Though claiming her goes against everything he was brought up to believe, he takes her as his companion. During the day, she holds herself away from him, but at night, she sparks to life in his arms. As a human revolution ferments, his growing relationship with Lina becomes even more perilous. Earning her forgiveness will be hard, but keeping them both alive in the meantime might prove impossible. ~~Lina and Gabreon's tale spans several books. Though this story can function as a standalone, it is better read as part of a series~~~~The Fae Lord's Mistress is a dark fantasy romance that deals with sensitive issues and is for 18-year-olds and above. Sexual content also inside. If you dislike any of those things, then this fantasy romance likely isn't for you~~~~Serialized on Tapas in the Premium Program as The Sidhe Lord's Mistress~~
