Hope and the Patient Man

A Novel of the Gryphon Clerks

by Mike Reeves-McMillan

Book Cover: Hope and the Patient Man
Pages: 217

When a promising date ends in head trauma and ruined trousers, Hope must confront the curse she accidentally placed on herself at the end of her first relationship. But can she do so while also qualifying as a Senior Mage, solving the mystery of her parents' toxic marriage, and helping two awkward friends communicate - all while periodically blacking out?

A love story, with engineering. About - and for - smart, nerdy women and the men who adore them.

Content warning: While it does not depict sex directly, this book does contain "adult situations" and what one reader has described as "delicate eroticism". If you are uncomfortable with these elements, this isn't the book for you.

Place in the series: This is a direct sequel to Hope and the Clever Man and picks up where that book leaves off, but it can be read as a standalone.
