About the Book

How long will it take to fan the flames and enrage a phoenix? Start the countdown.

Stripped of his psychic powers, Calico Winghorse barely made it to 19th century Earth via his interdimensional portal. As a mixed-blood phoenix concealing himself in human form, he opens a bakery in the San Francisco Bay Area and quietly licks his wounds. But the unique method of his escape has drawn the unwanted attention of Infinity Corporation.

Representing this angelic-run company is Agustín Chávez de la Cruz, the Demon Lord of California. Even though Agustín is the corporation’s heir, he finds himself demoted from his daily duties for a new assignment: take absolute control of the portal.

As Agustín formulates a more gracious avenue of acquiring Calico’s gateway, the demanding head of IC interferes, further complicating matters. From this unexpected interlude, Calico and Agustín realize they both wish to establish more than a mere business arrangement. So negotiations stumble along, all the while Calico ensures that the good people of the city are getting their fill of baked goods.
Yet due to Calico’s injuries, the portal remains vulnerable to the darker forces that want it at any cost. Agustín will have to push both his angelic heritage, and his own psychic powers to the very limits to mend someone who not only bears celestial blood, but who is also the god of space and time.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "I throughly enjoyed this exquisite masterpiece! MC's Gus and Cal are devine, chemistry is abundant. The world building is exceptional, I literally couldn't stop reading. (And OMG when will book 2 be out?) This lady can write, you guys seriously need to pick this up and read in one sitting! [...]" - OldBookworm CB

- "[...] The characters were my favorite part of this book, with 2 main characters that were well developed as well as a plethora of supporting characters that also had interesting lives and character development, it was easy to get invested. The only thing I struggled with in getting to know the characters was their very interesting backgrounds and histories that we didn't get a lot of information on early on. I expect more development and backstory to be filled in in the sequel. Overall, an enjoyable read, and a great first foray into LGBTQ Science Fiction/Fantasy." - Life's A Book

- "Enjoyable and intriguing. The author did a credible job in writing about the early 1900's with characters that both lived in our world, and their own. decent world building, and I enjoyed the ebb and flow of the book.[...]" - Spencer P.

About the Author

Granted unlimited access to books at a very early age via the library, Jeanne Marcella quickly acquired a fondness for creating her own stories through word and drawing.

Her wild imagination was further fueled by working in libraries and bookstores throughout her life. She writes fantasy that dives into quests and the grit of living. Her style is eclectic and eccentric. Stories move outside-the-box and embody the fantastic as fantasy was meant to be consumed. Her darker sagas are not for the faint of heart; they burrow deeper into exploring that idea of fantastic and push boundaries.

Nearly all her characters are LGBTQIA+ (gay/queer), but that does not define who they are or the goals they struggle to reach.

Jeanne was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.
