"Soft Bronze" is book number two in the Celestial Mates m/m paranormal romance series by a new to me author. I enjoyed this book as a stand alone, but its a good idea to read the first in the series (Soft Marble). This second book is the story between Zelus the god of Jealousy and Camden a security guard who works for Zelus' brother Kratos. I had fun reading the book as it had a lot of humorous parts. The chemistry between Zelus and Camden was off the charts HOT and the story had a smooth flow to it. So yes, I would say this one is a good gay paranormal romance story. Thank you Megan Slayer.
Celestial Mates, 2
Zelus, the god of jealousy, has been imprisoned in solid bronze for the last two millennia. A simple kiss can break the spell and free him from the metal—if his lover is willing to believe.
Camden Crowe isn’t a specialist in ancient artifacts, but he does know how to guard them. He spends his days working as a security guard in charge of keeping the bronze statue of Zelus safe. He can’t contain his attraction to the nude god. What will happen when the security geek finds out he’s stronger than he ever believed and can harness the power of the gods?
Be Warned: m/m sex
This is a previously published work. It has been revised and edited for Evernight Publishing.
Zelus placed his hands on the lid of the box. They couldn’t cover him. They couldn’t sell him. He was real. His heart hammered. This bastard couldn’t steal him or make money from him. No way.
Finally, he had his heart back. If he screamed, they’d know the curse had been broken, or at least they’d have him sent away from his guard. He’d have to bide his time and wait until someone opened the lid. He wasn’t sticking around for Gus to use him. Even if it took magic or begging his father, he’d get out of Gus’s clutches, then he’d find Camden.
He couldn’t believe his luck. He had finally found the person to break the curse, but now he was stuck in a crate, headed for a store’s window display.
What a time to not have his powers!
He’d wait. There wasn’t much else he could do. Zelus closed his eyes. Camden broke the spell once. With another kiss and a declaration of love, he could destroy the curse forever.
All Zelus had to do was hold on.
