#ThursdayThirteen: @HouseofTaboo Author Lia Michaels Shares A Taste of Forbidden Destiny #eroticromance #LGBT #shifters

Welcome to Through Stephanie’s Eyes. Today you’re in for a special treat. My alter ego, Lia Michaels has released her first LGBT erotic paranormal romance. This one is a short story companion meant to wet your appetite for some sexy eagle shifters. To top it all off, these men are in the Army…whew!  I mean, you can’t go wrong with sexy men in uniform.

Forbidden Destiny introduces you to Abraham and Ethan. These two star crossed lovers search for each other through their dreams where they can shift into eagles and soar high up in the clouds together. Have you all seen the National Geographic videos of the courting ritual of raptors like the bald eagle? Well, go look for some and you’ll end up breathless watching them just like I did. It’s an amazing sight.  

But I digress…

Let’s get back to the task at hand and share the blurb from Lia’s short story.


Ethan Quaderer is the Great Thunderbird, the creature of Native American legend.  From childhood, Ethan soared high across the land, as one with the majestic bald eagles—only larger and more powerful. Great Thunderbird has one mission, to save the Native American people. But first, he must find his Chosen, his soul mate.

Abraham Tuttle grew up in a household where being different was unacceptable. Forbidden.  He hid his true nature, a Two Spirit—not male or female, but both.  For many Native American tribes, being Two Spirit is a blessing, one to be honored and revered. Not so for Abraham.

Through the Thunderbird dreams each finds the happiness they long for. One dreams of the Great Warrior who’d someday rescue him. The other dreams of the one he’s searched for through many lifetimes.


Dreams turn into reality when both men come face to face in the real world. Can Abraham find it within himself to let go of his past and embrace his future with Ethan, or will his doubts and fears of who and what he really is cause him to lose the only one who could ever complete him heart and soul?

Got your attention now, don’t we? 😉  Here’s the first thirteen sentences. It’s from the opening dream sequence through Abraham’s eyes.

“Come to me, Abe. Together we’ll save our people.”

Abraham scanned the shoreline for the source of the deep, haunting voice. He walked up and down the trails in the woods surrounding the lake and so far he turned up nothing. That is, nothing but the bald eagles soaring high in the sky. 

As he watched the aerial display, one of the largest birds of the group broke away from the trio circling overhead. Abraham’s eyes followed the majestic creature through every dive and swoop back up toward the treetops. His breath caught in his chest each time the free fall began. “So beautiful.”

“Join me now, my Chosen. Together the Thunderbirds will bring peace and hope to all our people.”


Abraham’s heart raced and goose bumps immediately covered his bare arms.


Sorry folks. That’s all you get for now. If you want to read more of the story, you can get your very own copy today from SmashwordsAll Romance ebooks and Amazon.   I’ve already got my copy in my hot little hands. What’s taking you so long? Go on. If you’re over 18 years old and enjoy M/M erotic paranormal romances, this one’s for you.

About the Author

Lia Michaels is the alter ego of bestselling poet and erotic romance author Tammy Dennings Maggy. With so many characters clamoring for their stories to be told, the job became a bit overwhelming for one sassy vixen to handle. Lia “volunteered” to explore the world of M/M erotic romance as well as menage. Tammy will still tell the M/F and F/F stories but don’t be surprised if the two of them collaborate from time to time. With Lia, very few topics will be taboo so look for more fantasy and paranormal tales from her. She’ll leave the more contemporary stuff to Tammy but still encourage her to push the limits!

Until next time

I’m hosting at Sassy Vixen Publishing!

Hello everyone! I’ve been away for a bit helping out my alter egos with their projects as well as my own. My alter ego Tammy Dennings Maggy aka The Vixen, turned over Sassy Vixen Blog hosting duties to  me for the last two of our guests. It was so exciting! Both authors wrote about vampires and both stories couldn’t be more different from each other. Just when you think you know everything there is to know about vampires and vampire lore, another author comes along and puts a fresh twist on things and I’m taken in once again.

My first interview was with Victoria Embers. She’s writing a series of short novellas that make up her My Vampire Lover series. We decided that an Oh My! Monday feature with her interview was the best way to showcase Victoria’s work and still give her a chance to share a steamy adult excerpt. While I’m keeping Through Stephanie’s Eyes at no more than a PG rating, Sassy Vixen allows the very explicit material. So please be forewarned that if you click on the following link, you will be taken to an Adults ONLY site and it does contain material that some people will find objectionable.  With that being said here is the LINK to Victoria’s spot on Sassy Vixen.

My second interview is yet to go live. It’s scheduled to go up on Monday March 11th with Tyler Robbins. This author visits Sassy Vixen just two days after her Saturday Spotlight interview with another of my alter egos, Lia Michaels. For those of you who’ve never visited Lia’s blog The House of Taboo, well, let’s just say it’s a party over there 24/7. The guests are hot and the excerpts even hotter. As with Sassy Vixen, The House of Taboo is an adults only site.  For Tyler’s spot on Sassy Vixen she shared an ADULT excerpt from her M/M/M erotic romance Immortal Thirst. Click on this LINK to learn more on March 11th.

I hope you enjoy my interview and blog hosting over at Sassy Vixen! I’ve opened up my blog for guests now too. So if you’re an author and would like a spot here, please check out the Guest Author Guidelines Tab at the top of the blog. There you will find the three features I have available. My blog is the only one of my alter egos that will continue to offer the Thursday Thirteen feature.

As always, take care and keep on reading!
