Celebrating Historical Romances: "Into Deep Waters" by Kaje Harper

What is not to love about historical romances? I love historical romances.  I love men.  Historical romances featuring men?  You have a winning combination!  We celebrate historical romances because without having the past, you don’t learn in the present to have a better future.
Best of all! Kaje Harper’s “Into Deep Waters” is free! (B&N | Amazon | Smashwords | Goodreads)

PHOTO DESCRIPTION: Two young men stand in the riveted steel doorway of a ship. The one inside the doorway is young and classically handsome, hatless, with wavy dark hair falling over his forehead. His eyes are narrowed against the sunlight and a small smile hovers on his lips as he braces himself in the doorframe. The man in front of him is younger still. His attractiveness is more the flush of youth and good health than perfection of features. He grins, squinting in the brightness, dressed in the white hat and shirt of the WWII US Navy. Although the two men stand only casually close together, the sailor in front has one hand raised, over his shoulder, to keep a firm grip on the shirt of the man in the doorway behind him.

STORY LETTER
Dear Author,

We met onboard, both of us so very young – still in our teens – but we were old enough to serve our country. And against all odds, and the many risks involved, we fell in love and have managed to stay together for the last 60 years. Now, as our time together inevitably gets shorter and shorter, I can’t wait any longer for the right to finally marry the man I’ve loved all these years.

This is the story of Daniel and Jacob, who met on that ship in WWII, and loved and lived through all the years that followed…

About Kaje:

I live in Minnesota (where the two seasons are snow removal and road-repair, and the mosquito is the state bird, and where sometimes in winter it is so beautiful you can’t breathe for gazing at it.) I have been writing for longer than I care to admit, and currently am focused on writing m/m romance, with a few Young Adult stories released under the pen name Kira Harp. I have an interview from Sept 2012 on Reviews by Jessewave for those who are interested.

My first professionally published book, Life Lessons, came out from MLR Press in May 2011. This was the first thing I had submitted anywhere and I was thrilled when it was accepted. There are three free short sequels; And to All a Good Night, and Getting it Right come between books 1 and 2. The sequel novels are Breaking Cover and Home WorkCompensations is the latest short story, and follows book 3, and book 4 is in progress. I’ve been just delighted by the reception Mac and Tony have received.

My first free Smashwords book was the first story that I actually released – I put it up a month before Life Lessons just for the fun of getting it out there. Lies and Consequences began as a reaction to the November 2010 election. It looked like the repeal of DADT might be derailed by the political shift and I put the insanity of that law into the book. Then as I was finishing the first draft in mid-December the repeal passed. Which was great, but prompted a rewrite to a lighter and more action/romance book. This was a solo effort and I learned a lot from writing it and from the reviews.

And now I have other work in ebooks and print, both free and professionally published. A complete list with links can be found on my Books page. This writing thing is addictive. So read, comment, tell me what you like and what you don’t, and help me make the upcoming books even better. I have an author page on Goodreads where I do a lot of book reviews, and this blog is reposted, if you are interested in the ramblings of a relatively new author.

You can find me to chat on my author page on Goodreads most easily – I hang out on Goodreads a lot because I moderate the Goodreads YA LGBT Books group there.
