A Word From K.A. Merikan
Many of the characters I wrote wouldn’t even get as far as the friendzone in real life, but I do love my book boyfriends rough, tough, and dangerous. Domenico is like that. Tooth was like that. And so is Red Jack, the main character of our newest book, Red Hot. He is one scary guy-- all tattooed, with a bushy beard, a member of an outlaw motorcycle club, won’t stop pushing until he gets what he wants. In fact, the moment the reader first meets him, Jack is freezing his butt off in front of a strip club, waiting for a girl he’s obsessed with.
He will be a bit of a changed man at the end of the book, all thanks to Loki, who’s also stalking someone. That someone is Jack. Loki is no innocent, but he is desperate after receiving a bad diagnosis. With a painfully short time left to live, he is desperate to be loved for once, and after a brief encounter in a public toilet, he becomes convinced the person fate meant for him is the handsome, redheaded biker. And without much to lose, he is prepared to go to great lengths to secure the affection he so desperately craves.
The relationship between the two protagonists of Red Hot isn’t equal, with Jack being physically stronger, but that doesn’t mean Loki is weak. He is a character who doesn’t hesitate to use all his assets, up to the point of destruction. And while both those men are not good people, I believe they are sympathetic, and relatable on several levels. They really do care about the things that are important to them, and the true affection that eventually blossoms between them is redeeming for both of them.
Loki and Jack were made for each other, like two twisted, dark pieces of a puzzle :)

Publisher ~ Acerbi & Villani ltd.
Genre ~ Contemporary homoerotic dark M/M romance

--- Live fast. Die young. Fuck hard.---
Red Jack. Rude. Crude. Horny ginger mess. In love with… himself.
Loki. Deadbeat. Volatile. Stalker. Terminally ill. Fatally in love.
When it comes to men, Red Jack has three rules. The guy has to be hot, out of town, and not up for repeats. It’s a good way to keep the gay flings far away from the eyes of his brothers in the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club, and he will make damn sure it stays that way. When a hookup takes an ominous turn, and the sexy stranger turns up at his house, the heat is on. Loki invades his life and just won’t leave, wreaking havoc wherever he follows Jack, but getting rid of him becomes harder with every kiss.
The world crumbles around Loki when he finds out he has cancer. As if his life wasn’t shit enough already. With only a few months left, he decides to live to the fullest and get every last wish on his bucket list fulfilled. One of those is fucking the hot bearded biker he meets the same night he got the bad news. Big, confident, and dangerous, Red Jack is all Loki ever wanted in a man. After all, he deserves one last shot at love. Who cares if Red Jack is a stubborn, closeted asshole? Loki knows what he wants, and he won’t settle for anything less. Even if it kills him.

Meet K.A. Merikan
K.A. Merikan is a joint project of Kat and Agnes Merikan, who jokingly claim to share one mind. They finish each other's sentences and simultaneously come up with the same ideas. Kat and Agnes enjoy writing various kinds of stories, from light-hearted romance to thrillers. They love creating characters that are not easy to classify as good or evil, and firmly believe that even some villains deserve their happy endings. It is easiest to find them in galleries, restaurants and historical sites, always with a computer or notebook, because for Kat and Agnes, every day is a writing day. Future plans include lots of travel, and a villa on the coast of Italy or a flat in Paris where they could retire after yet another crazy venture, only to write more hot homoerotic stories.
As K.A. Merikan, Kat and Agnes have published a number of books, which cross genres while always staying homoerotic.
