Hear the tick tick tock of the Countdown Clock,
As we wait with breath held for stores to unlock.
For two moons to rise in the Theorrean skies.
For the Queen’s favorite Wode to unveil their lies.
When the Siren sings and the Deviant soars
Will The Khepri pull his strings, will the lion roar?
We cannot forget, in the time between,
That above all else, we must save the Queen.
My other personality, Rachel Grace, has been hiding for nearly a year, waiting for her chance to step out of the shadows and make a post on The Smutketeers. Now she’s…I’m…we’re ready to celebrate “our” clockworky steampunkitude release, GEARED FOR PLEASURE!!
Luckily, she has a lot of friends ready to join her for her party. Which makes sense, since this world, this story, is filled with a large cast of characters who must come together, fight side by side, and trust each other if they have any hope of accomplishing their goals.
GEARED was forged out of friendship, inspired by the members of The Smutketeers at the same time the blog itself was being created. And then the two-story anthology took on a life of its own, built the world of Theorrey and introduced us to Bodhan, the Queen’s Sword, Cyrus, Freeman and so many others…like Wulf. *sigh* Let’s take a look…
The world of Theorrey runs like a well-oiled machine.
The elements are in balance, passion is tamed and the young queen
is the heartbeat of it all. But in these two all-new stories of
elemental steam, nothing is ever as it seems…
Fiery TemptationsSeraphina always lands on her feet. After all, she is a Felidae-more feline than human-and an excellent thief. There has never been a job Phina wouldn’t take or a man who could tame her…until she meets Cyrus Arendal. As the Queen’s Sword, Cyrus should have known better than to fall victim to a beautiful bandit. Now, to find and retrieve the moonfire dagger, he’ll need to convince Phina not to judge a man by his station, but rather by how completely he can satisfy her desires.
Without wasting anymore time, let’s get to the adventure!!
The Scavenger Hunt
