People-driven stories.
slightly broken boys.



Angelique Jurd

Tattooed queer chick who swears, drinks coffee, talks to cats, and writes books.



Join Alex and Ben as they build a life together in San Capistrano, spend some time in a shop where people are more important than products, or lose yourself in the fantasy word of magic and mischief in Edelweiss Grove. My series are for everyone who loves recurring boys and (a bit more than) a touch of heat.


Alex is a shy, dedicated nurse who is used to rejection. Ben is a confident, up-and-coming lawyer who loves life. An ongoing series, San Capistrano tracks the pair as they build a life together.

What people are saying about Angelique’s books:

“This was a wonderful book. I teared up several times. What a touching love story of two guys who fit together so perfectly. I loved it and wanted to keep reading about them when the book was done.”

“It’s been a while since I’ve read a book where I actually sobbed as I was reading it.  Although it was a short book, it didn’t skip on the depth of emotion and of character building which why I’m giving it 5 well deserved stars.

Douglas Scott Merrell
Belkin Lake

“Her FIRST book? This was her first book? Ms Jurd, I loved it. I have no idea why I waited so long to get to this series, but I’m reading it now, and like a lot of other readers, have fallen hard for these guys and their extended family . Seriously, thank you.”

Slowing down as self-care

It’s just gone 11pm here in Auckland, New Zealand. I’m sitting at my desk in my very messy, and about to be redesigned, office, listening to Radio Company  and musing about slowing down and self-care. My PA has taken care of promotional posts, the week’s work has been scheduled and transferred to Trello and my physical planner.  The rest of the household – those with four paws and those with two – sleeps already.   Today, […]
