Blurb: Denton is a necromancer and his boyfriend Bran is a witch. It’s not as exciting as it sounds. They don’t even get to dress the part, unless it’s New Year’s Eve and they’ve been invited to a costume party. Denton is happy to let his hair down, but coaxing the reclusive Bran out of his shell is hard enough without a demonic spirit crashing the party.

Convincing the spirit to return whence it came from will call on Denton’s special skills, but not in necromancy.



Dead Man & the Lustful Spirit is a short freebie that follows Dead Man & the Restless Spirits. Its New Year’s Eve and Denton and Bran are attending a costume party…*cough* as a necromancer and a witch *cough*. When Spiderman gets a bit to handsy and glutenous, Denton is certain something supernatural is going on…and he needs Bran’s knowledge and expertise to save the poor soul. What happens next is…*cough* interesting.

Okay, I admit that I wasn’t as into the mystery here in this story as I was into the ones in Dead Man & the Restless Spirits. (Jeez, could I use ‘in’ any more?) But all the humor and chemistry that I know and love between Denton and Bran was there. I swear, at one point I could not stop laughing! Umm, yeah, Denton gets a little too interested in Bran’s leather cough…LMFAO. Anyway, this was fun and free and the perfect taste of a little more Denton and Bran.

Please let there be more Dead Man mysteries to come!

FYI: There are spoilers for Dead Man & the Restless Spirits

Overall Impression: I Liked It!
