Jenna Lynn Brown

Jenna Lynn Brown is a hopeless romantic and writer of M/M erotic romance, resulting in over two dozen short stories, novellas, and novels originally published under the name Jenna Jones. She has also been a radio announcer on a classical music station, a janitor, a copy editor, a retail worker, and a cubicle slave. Writing is her favorite profession. (Radio announcer is a close second.)

She is a long-time romance reader, cutting her teeth on novels like Jane Eyre and Maurice.

Her first novel, Chiaroscuro, was nominated for an EPPIE in 2008. She loves writing about men being vulnerable, talking about their feelings, and falling in love without fear. Bonus points if she can use any of the bits of trivia taking up space in her brain.

She has degrees in history and the humanities, specializing in English literature and film as an art form. She lives in the Wasatch Mountains with a lot of books and a funny-faced dog. She is always on the lookout for places friendly to scribblers, especially if they provide coffee.

Her website (“the mothership”) is where you may find news about her new and republished books as well as sign up for a very sporadic newsletter.

Fidele (Nostalgic M/M romance, Contemporary M/M romance, LGBTQ)

A house full of ghosts is no place to fall in love.

Malcolm Carmichael has been coping with his post-war trauma by taking lovers, teaching art to schoolboys, and trying to ignore the ghosts he sees everywhere. After the death of his mother, he realizes he wants more than just to coast through the rest of his life and leaves the exclusive school in search of something more.

Caleb Thibodeaux was so traumatized by the death of his parents in a fire that he hasn’t spoken a word since. His uncle Noel hires Malcolm to be his tutor, and Malcolm discovers that Caleb is not the only Thibodeaux son with secrets. The plantation house Fidele is beautiful but haunted, and Noel is much the same.

Soon Malcolm is absorbed in protecting Caleb and Noel from threats both living and dead, and in uncovering the story of Fidele.
