T.C. MillT.C. Mill lives in Washington, D.C. She works as a freelance editor and is currently at a placid stage of life, although she’s done such interesting things as facing down a baboon (and winning) and being kissed by the Eighth Doctor (Doctor Who, that is). She'd recommend the latter experience over the former, not least because she's since learned baboons are responsible for the deaths of several small children in parts of the world. Stay safe, friends.
She writes romantic science fiction and fantasy, and her work has appeared from Dreamspinner, Circlet, Storm Moon Press, and Carina. Look out for a piece in Cleis Press' The Darker Edge of Desire later in 2014.

A returning hero, a prisoner of his past
Renad Amdarien's daring escape from the brutal confines of a sorcerer's dungeon has made him a legend throughout the land. Now trusted without question, Renad suffers the truth alone: his former master's sorcery rules him still. Broken both in body and mind, he finds brief solace only in the Gardens, lush sanctuaries of sex and secrets staffed by willing, skilled companions.
Nemaran, a most unusual Garden servant, recognizes Renad's pain and offers easy comfort. What begins as erotic exploration soon grows into more, with Nemaran's gentle attentions inspiring Renad to cross the physical and emotional boundaries society had long ago set in place.
When forces beyond his control compel Renad to commit the ultimate betrayal, the new lovers must band together outside of the Gardens' walls…for only Nemaran can help Renad become his own man once more.
Gardens Where No One Will See is my first erotic romance novella from Carina Press. I'm making it available in EPUB and PDF (if the winner would prefer a MOBI or PRC file, just let me know).
