Moonlight and the Magician
The Moonlight Curse series, Book 1

A Queer Fantasy/Romance Novel by Evelynn Carver

Spoiled pretty boy, Valentino, a revered fire mage of singular talent, finds himself pressured into a political marriage with a sadistic noblewoman he barely knows. He’s desperate to find a way out, even if it means leaving his gilded life in the spotlight behind.


Brand, a mysterious roguish vagabond, approaches Val and charms him into a deal: he will help him escape his problems in exchange for his assistance in breaking a vicious magical curse. What that curse entails is only revealed in the light of the full moon. Is Brand really who he says he is?

What begins as a romantic runaway adventure soon turns out to be much more than they bargained for. It seems that Valentino’s magic isn’t worth as much as he thought when it comes to dealing with a willful demon, gunslinging bounty hunters, and his own fickle heart. He might be falling in lust with a monster, but will he sell his very soul just to run away from responsibility?

Moonlight and the Monarch
The Moonlight Curse series, Book 2

Direct sequel to Moonlight and the Magician by Evelynn Carver

Brand’s curse remains, his family estranged, and his carefully constructed plan gone ridiculously awry. He’s fallen head over heels for the powerful mage and temperamental socialite, Valentino Vicari, the descendant of the witch who cast a dark curse on his family. Is Brand prepared to give up everything, crown and consequences be damned, for an excellent pair of legs and a scalding tongue?

The decision is taken from him when Brand and Valentino are captured by agents of Brand’s father, the ruthless King Lykanos, and the newly built trust between them is shattered.

Valentino is forcefully conscripted, thrown into yet another unwanted engagement, his precious pride rubbed in the dirt and stomped on. Left feeling utterly betrayed and powerless without his magic, Valentino can’t help but hope that, somehow, he’ll get a chance to burn the whole castle to ashes and escape. Will his fledgling relationship with Brand survive the fallout?

Brand will have to think two steps ahead of his watchful father, enlist the help of some unlikely allies, and climb through a couple of sewer pipes to scheme his way out of the castle and back into Valentino’s heart.

This title will be published by NineStar Press on July 11, 2023. To read a preview and get news about upcoming releases, please subscribe to our newsletter!



Moonlight and the Mirror
The Moonlight Curse series, Book 3 - Finale

Direct sequel to Moonlight and the Monarch  by Evelynn Carver

In the third and final installment of The Moonlight Curse series, our heroes must confront the ghosts of their pasts and break the curse if they want to save each other from falling into darkness…

Brand and Valentino’s idyllic honeymoon is rudely interrupted when a heaping helping of consequences comes knocking at their door. The curse has spread through the power of their bond, and the result of mixing their magic is not without its unpleasant, and rather bombastic, side-effects. Will digging into the origins of the curse reveal the way to finally break it?

Valencia Vicari was only twenty-three years old when she killed the king of Kaenys and herself, but her story did not begin and end there. She was once a young woman on a mission to end the oppressive rule of a tyrant, a mission that goes hopelessly awry when her heart gets in the way. A strange encounter with a mirror, a contract with a demon, and the actions of a two-faced king force her to make a fateful mistake.

Her deeds one hundred years ago have echoed throughout history, impacting not just the royal family, but her own descendants and perhaps the flow of magic itself.

With the help of some unlikely allies, Valentino and Brand embark on a dangerous search for a strange artifact that might reveal the truth, but what will they need to sacrifice to make things right?
