Fantasy, Fantasy romance

Chloe and Angela only have two months left to find a cure for Angela's biting problem - because if they don't, they'll have to break up, or risk Chloe's life . . .

Is love stronger than death?

It's hard to hold down a functioning relationship at the best of times - but it's harder still when one half of the couple is on the wrong side of dead, and the other's just discovered they possess powers that are definitely not of natural origin.

To be together at all, Angela and Chloe have had to overcome almost impossible odds, but their final obstacle might be insurmountable.

In the last ten months, they've searched high and low for a cure to Angela's biting problem, and if they don't find one soon, the chances grow higher and higher that Chloe might die.

Is there a solution, or is the divide between the living and the dead too wide for them to cross?

Praise for Bleeding Hearts

  • A compelling and involving fantasy romance . . . a very affirming book, with people, in their diversity, finding a way despite human - or supernatural - obstacles to express their love - BLUE BOOK BALLOON on BLEEDING HEARTS

  • Bleeding Hearts feels like a larger novel. The stakes are higher but Herman is able to retain the wry sense of humour . . . Herman proves that thrills are also a forte. The potential for the series is as vast as Herman's imagination - SF BOOK REVIEWS on BLEEDING HEARTS

  • Fun, well-written queer vampire romantic comedy. It's got a lovely retro vibe that channels Sunglasses After Dark, whilst also brimming with literary and writery jokes amidst the deeper issues - HORROR WRITERS'ASSOCIATION on LOVE BITES

  • A terrific, vibrant, emotional and funny read - THERESA DERWIN on LOVE BITES

  • The perfect romcom - BOOK NERD CAFE on LOVE BITES

  • Love Bites is about finding love and relearning trust after abuse, even as the characters still struggle with fear and guilt: this creates two main characters who are realistically flawed, incredibly multi-faceted. This is a story with sharp wit, writing that has you laughing one moment and deep in empathy the next - CHLOE MUSES on LOVE BITES

  • This book maybe about vampires, but it all felt very human to me - SF BOOK REVIEWS on LOVE BITES

  • Its depictions of depression and trauma are heartfelt, and its message of hope is hard to resist. If you've grown out of Twilight but still fancy some monsters in your comfort reads, this could be just the sweet, emotionally literate, non-sparkly love story you're looking for - SFX on LOVE BITES
