    Summary

    The beautiful man drops his hands from Joe’s face instantly, and his skin feels colder without his touch.

    “I’m Nicky,” Nicky says woodenly. “I’m...I’m your familiar.”

    “I have a familiar?”

     

     

    (The last thing Joe remembers is getting drunk with his best friend Booker in a bar after a fight with his terrible boyfriend, Keane. But he wakes up in a hospital, with a gorgeous man at his bedside, telling him impossible things. Things like how he's Joe's familiar. Things like how they're married.)

    Summary

    In the hours after the escape from Merrick, Nile adjusts to the reality of her new life.

    Andy twists in her seat to glare backward, but surprisingly she’s not looking at Nile; she’s looking at Nicky.

    “This is your fault,” she tells him.

    Nicky blinks placidly, dried blood still spattered on his face. “I have done nothing.”

    “You know what you did,” Andy says. “You’re contagious.” She points at Nile. “If you start saying everything happens for a reason, I'm not letting you speak to Nicky anymore. I’m not gonna have two of you giving me lectures about some higher calling.”

    Summary

    Squeezing the phone between his ear and one shoulder, he lifted the fussy baby from her bassinet up against his other. She let loose another little whine, this one certainly audible on the other end of the line.  

    “Booker,” said Nile slowly, “is that a cat in the background?”

    He froze. “A cat? Yes, of course. This little lady was hanging out by the trash bins for my flat, squawking up a storm and hungry as hell. No mama to be seen, so I’ve taken her in for a couple of days.” There. It wasn’t a total lie.

     

    ---
    Or, Booker, exiled, drunk and alone, takes in an abandoned baby. He doesn’t tell anybody. He definitely doesn’t fall a little bit in love.

    Summary

    Nicky is selkie, neither fully human, nor fully seal. He has never felt fully comfortable in either skin.

    With his accidental bond-mate, Joe, struggling to accept that selkies are real, Nicky returns to his childhood home on Orkney, hoping to reconcile these two parts of himself.

    He discovers instead that the in between -- between human and seal, between knowledge and faith -- actually suits him (and Joe) just fine.

     

    A Sequel to This Rough Magic.

    Summary

    When Joe came to Scotland to study the sea, he did not expect to also encounter a beautiful man claiming that A. he’s a selkie and B. they’re married because Joe picked up his scarf.

    It sounds like a fairy tale and that’s a problem. Because Joe’s a scientist. And selkies don’t exist.
