Rising From the Darkness 
warning: Part 4 has an m/m pairing

This book was previously published. It has been re-edited, re-formatted, and re-released.

When mired in the darkness, seek the light…
 

Against his mother’s wishes, Mishel Hewes decides to accompany his uncle Arnie Rollison on his yearly sabbatical to Ireland. It’s not a pleasure trip by any means, but a journey to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the day that Cairnnon Castle fell.

Once in Ireland, the pair find that Castle Cairnnon is being resurrected at an alarming rate, by some unknown benefactor. And Arnie’s first concern is for the body of his young intern who was buried when the Castle toppled a quarter of a century before.

Hoping to provide some solace for his adoptive uncle, Mish gets himself hired on the construction crew, which isn’t a hardship with all the ripped workmen around. However, once inside the creepy stronghold, Mish is plagued by the same strange phenomenon that had once threatened his father, on the ill-fated trip many years before. Sick and suffering from the horrible effects of Cairnnon’s infamous elemental, Mish falls to his knees convinced he is at death’s door. What he finds instead can only be described as a miracle. Or perhaps one blessing is just another curse.


Warning: This collection of short stories contains m/f and m/m couplings and cliff-hangers. Installments must be read in order.

Excerpt:


Joel snorted. “We’ll see.” He took a large swallow of his beer, then picked up one of the shot glasses. “Startin’ now.” Joel poured the whiskey on top of the creamy liqueur and then dropped the entire jigger into his pint. Without pause, he picked it up, gave a silent salute, then chugged the contents. He wiped his mouth with the back of his hand as he slammed the glass onto the tabletop. With an evil grin, he challenged, “Your turn.” 

Mish mixed the whiskey and Irish Cream, then sank it to the bottom of the beer. He picked it up and stared at the concoction. 

“Ya’d better get after it before it curdles. Tha’s no’ wha’ 
you want,” Joel advised, his Irish dialect coming out stronger. It was damn sexy, too. 


Inhaling deep first, Mish then downed the blend, beyond his better judgment. With a trembling hand he set the glass on the table. 



“Yeow!” he exclaimed when he could breathe again. 


Joel chuckled, and the sound went straight through Mish. “Now, in about three minutes you’ll be more relaxed, and we can get to know each other better.” Joel signaled to Quin at the bar. 



Mish cleared his throat. “Do you like working at the Cairnnon site?” He was already feeling warmth spreading throughout his body from the alcoholic concoction. 



“Yeah, I guess. It’s work.” 



“So who is it you work for? I heard the place was bought by some unknown buyer.” 


“You know, if I didn’t know better, I would think you were some kinda reporter or somethin’.” Mish recoiled. 


“A reporter?” 


“Yeah, you show up 'ere in Ireland, seekin’ short term work, and askin’ way too many questions.” 



For some reason, Mish felt guilty. He scrambled for something to say while Quin dropped off another pint each. 



As soon as the bartender was out of earshot, Joel turned in Mish’s direction, even bringing one leg up onto the bench seat between them. He took Mish by the shoulders and peered deep into his eyes. “Why would I bring you onto my work site? What are ya up ta, Mishel Hewes?” 



Without thought, Mishel poured out the entire story, and when he was finished he wondered what the fuck had compelled him to do such a thing. 


But to his delight the other man’s features softened, and Mish was lost in his gaze. He wanted nothing more than to taste the other man’s lips and to intensify the situation. 

Unexpectedly, Joel smoothed his thumb over Mish’s mouth. 

“Hmmm, me, too.” Joel grinned as if he could hear Mish’s thoughts. Joel picked up his beer. “Now, was that so hard?” 

No, but something else is uncomfortably firm. 

Joel snorted. 

Mishel shook his head. He actually had to fist his hands under the table. He was on the verge of doing something crazy.
