Two New Releases - Don't Stop Me Now, I'm On A Bun

Hey All,

Today marks the release of my lastest Samhain titled, ParaMatch.com. I'm really excited about this story since it marks the first time I've knowingly ventured into the realm of rom com. Not that my books haven't had their moments of hilarity, but to sit at the computer with the express intent of writing something funny, is a whole other ball of grammar.


Blurbage -

She can match anyone. Except the man she can’t resist.

A Tickle My Fantasy story.
Dating in today’s world is tough enough. Pair it with a paranormalady, and Lucille Wainwright is living the recipe for loneliness. Born a talentless witch in a family of legendary spellcasters, she’s managed to carve a niche for herself with ParaMatch.com, a matchmaking service for paranormal beings.

What she lacks in the magic department, she more than makes up for with her uncanny ability to conjure committed relationships out of any combination of traits and backgrounds. Until now.

Enter Jager Cronus, deposed king of the Titans and successful paratrader. As a client, he’s a nightmare. As a man, he’s irresistible. When he demands a date with her to the annual Legion Halloween Dance, she’s hard pressed to refuse. With her professional ethics warring with a deep need to prove herself, she gives him two more chances to find love.

That’s all the opening Jager needs. After all, he didn’t survive his downfall without learning a few things about prevailing in the face of the stiffest negotiations.

Now he’s about to negotiate the deal of a lifetime—a future with Lucilla.

Warning: Contains inter-species romance, love potions, fallen Greek Gods, super-morphing wizards, and a male strip-tease.

ParaMatch.com by MK Mancos available now, from Samhain Publishing


The second book, releases tomorrow from The Wild Rose Press, Faery Line titled, Kingmaker's Gold by MK Mancos.

This story came about as a want to write a special holiday themed story. When I saw that TWRP was looking for St. Patrick's Day themed stories, I figured I just had to write one. Especially, since most authors are going to write to the big holidays, Christmas, Valentines Day, Halloween. I love St. Patrick's Day and the wearing of the green. My Irish roots (what little of them I have) always surfaces with pride on that day. However, I didn't know how to make a St. Patrick's story vital as a contemporary, so I set it in Victorian New York, in the cracks between innocence and industrialization.



Gold —the name alone evokes dreams of riches beyond imagination. Whether one is a mortal woman or one of the fey men who inhabit New York in 1910, the precious metal can have great impact and far-reaching consequences. For Abigail Westmorland, a single gold coin stands between her and destitution. For Venn, a contender for the leprechaun throne, it means the difference between leading the fey or being led by his cousin, the dark fey, Lachlan. Together Venn and Abigail find true love is more precious than any gold.

Kingmaker's Gold by MK Mancos, The Wild Rose Press, Faery Rose - release date Feb. 11th.
