Hoarfrost (Whyborne & Griffin #6)
by Jordan L. Hawk
Our Q and A with Jordan L. Hawk, on her Whyborne & Griffin series and much more…
Do you see children in Whyborne & Griffin’s future?
Griffin would be a fabulous father from day one, and love every minute of it. Whyborne would have no idea what to do with a baby, but once it started talking he would probably be okay. Given the time period, I don’t see any children of their own as feasible, but that’s not to say they wouldn’t be amazing godfathers to any friends of theirs who happen to procreate at some point. *shifty eyes*
How do you figure out between the two whose story is it time to tell?
A lot of it has to do with where the characters are in their relationships with each other and themselves. Widdershins was very much Whyborne’s story to kick things off, and Threshold was critical in negotiating the parameters of Whyborne and Griffin’s relationship so that they could move forward. So it felt natural to have Stormhaven focus largely on Griffin’s issues, since we’d already tackled some of Whyborne’s, and then Necropolis is about Whyborne’s relationship with Christine. Of course during all of this Whyborne’s character arc has been ticking along, so Bloodline mirrors Widdershins in some ways, in that it’s about Whyborne deciding who he’s going to be.
In Hoarfrost we’re very much back to “this is Griffin’s story” just as Stormhaven was. He has deep issues with family, both in the reality of what his family is and what he dreams of it being, and it was definitely time to tackle those. I’d go on, but I don’t want to give too much away! 😀
How many books do you see in this series?
My criteria for a series is twofold: 1) there’s more story to tell (and I want to tell it) and 2) readers want to read it. At this point, I’ve ideas through book 9. Which does not mean 9 is the limit, only that’s what I have a solid plot for. After that, we’ll see!
Do you ever see yourself writing a modern/contemporary male male romance novel? If so, when would it be out?
Well, I already write contemporary paranormal with my SPECTR series and Hainted. As far as pure contemporary romance without paranormal elements, I don’t see myself ever writing it. My first love will always be for the fantastic, and it’s deeply engrained in everything I write.
Will Whyborne & Griffin ever cross paths with Henry & Vincent?
Alas, they live in two completely universes, so no. And I think Whyborne had his fill of ghost hunters when he and Griffin encountered KJ Charles’s Simon and Robert in “Remnant.” 😉

Previous Book: Bloodline
Sorcerer Percival Endicott Whyborne and his husband Griffin Flaherty have enjoyed an unprecedented stretch of peace and quiet. Unfortunately, the calm is shattered by the arrival of a package from Griffin’s brother Jack, who has uncovered a strange artifact while digging for gold in Alaska. The discovery of a previously unknown civilization could revive the career of their friend Dr. Christine Putnam—or it might kill them all, if the hints of dark sorcery surrounding the find are true.
With Christine and her fiancé Iskander, Whyborne and Griffin must journey to the farthest reaches of the arctic to stop an ancient evil from claiming the life of Griffin’s brother. But in the rough mining camp of Hoarfrost, secrets fly as thickly as the snow, and Whyborne isn’t the only sorcerer drawn by the rumors of magic. Amidst a wilderness of ice and stone, Griffin must either face his greatest fear—or lose everyone he loves.
