Book 1 in the Underground Elves Series
Please note: This is a revised version of a previously released title.
Denny is a top secret agent on a mission to protect London from Ethereal Beings – elves – who are seen as dangerous mind-reading parasites who prey on human emotions.
Kit is an elf on the run, misunderstood and persecuted by humans. When Denny catches him, he shatters everything Denny’s been taught about elves. He’s gorgeous and funny and claims he’s been searching a long time for a guy like Denny. He shares Denny’s kinks and now he needs Denny’s love to survive.
But if Denny doesn’t take Kit to jail, he’s in big trouble. Dare Denny break the law and gamble his life to save the Ethereal Being in his bed
Catching Kit is a delightful, surprisingly cute but quite kinky story. I loved it when I first read it two years ago, and it’s just as wonderful now.
Denny is an elf catcher, his job is to apprehend the EBs (Ethereal Beings) that leach emotions from humans. He works for the government who believe the EB’s are dangerous and need to be destroyed.
Denny’s not a particularly happy man, separated from his wife and daughter, living alone, Denny is a closet bisexual with a side kink in cross dressing, all he wants, all he yearns for, is someone who could like him just as he is, someone to love him. When he first sees Kit, busking on the London Tube, Denny is drawn to him, he’s slight and beautiful, just Denny’s type, if only he wasn’t an EB.
Unable to deliver Kit to the lockup Denny ends up looking after Kit overnight. As he does so he finds himself falling for the elf, although at first he puts his developing feelings down to Kit feeding him emotions, trying to weaken him so he’ll let him go. But as they spend more time together, which involves some very hot sex, Denny begins to realise there’s much more to the EBs, and to Kit, than he ever imagined. Denny is faced with an impossible dilemma, what does he do about Kit. They fit so well together, Kit shares Denny’s kinks and they are good in bed, but Denny is duty bound to turn Kit over to the government. Or is he?
I loved the whole background behind the EBs, how when they fade they don’t die, they just sleep until they wake up again, years, decades, centuries later. Kit has seen so much, The Crusades, Shakespeare, The Blitz, but he’s only actually lived for 37 years. Kit needs Denny to ground him just as much as Denny needs him. They are perfect together, and I loved the cross dressing, especially as it was by both characters. I adored both Denny and Kit but I must admit Kit was my favourite, he was vulnerable but also stronger than he appeared at first, he was quite an alluring mix. Denny was perfect as he struggles to make sense of not only his feelings for Kit but also the way everything he ever knew and understood is turned completely upside down. He’s a good man, a dutiful father, but he gradually realises he works for a government that destroys those they don’t understand and he’s not sure he can carry on doing that.
As with any good stories I did wish Catching Kit was longer, it’s only a novella, and now it’s been re-released I’d love to read a sequel, find out how Denny and Kit are getting on, did they ever get EB rights? And I just have to mention the new gorgeous cover designed by Meredith Russell. The first one was lovely but this one is just perfect, showing the two characters exactly as I imagined them to be.
If you love adorable sweet elves, the paranormal, and crave happy endings don’t miss Catching Kit, it will leave you warm and fussy inside.
