savor meWhen Chef Xander Bridges leaves the warmth and safety of his car on a cold, stormy night and approaches a stranger, the last thing he expects to find is a future. He’s wanted to leave his job for awhile, but with no good opportunities on the horizon, he’s been stuck in a long, painful rut. But when he befriends the stranger viciously tearing up his own vineyard, Xander discovers something inexplicable. Maybe he’s not the bitter, sarcastic man that everyone, including himself, has endured for years.

Maybe, with someone like Damon in his life, he could be something more. Something better.

Damon Hess doesn’t just want more, he demands it. With his alcoholic past, there are no gray areas for him. Only black and white. In love or not. Sober or drunk. But the chance meeting with Xander opens Damon’s eyes, and gives him a vision full of something he hasn’t experienced in years: hope.

Hope that he can expect companionship and affection, hope that he doesn’t have to grapple with his family’s questionable Napa legacy any longer, and most importantly, hope that there’s a future worth believing in. But the longer he and Xander spend cultivating that future, the more Damon realizes that the key is so much simpler than he ever imagined–it’s Xander.

Savor Me is an 80,000 word contemporary m/m romance starring an irascible man with a soft, gooey marshmallow center and another who knows he likes men, but has never been with one before. It is third in the Kitchen Gods series, but can be read as a standalone.

Synopsis

Charlie Rourke is an ultra fabulous human whirlwind on a mission to launch the next biggest band in the world. However, he might have taken on more than he could handle when he signed on to manage Zero. Promoting a rock band and finding gigs shouldn’t be hard. They’re a talented group with a ton of star power. If Charlie can find the right record label, he’s sure he can help them get to the next level. The only problem is the skater boy slash bassist with a quirky sense of humor. He’s annoying and silly, and he’s exactly Charlie’s type. Except he’s straight.

Ky Baldwin isn’t afraid to switch things up. He loves a challenge as much as anyone, but Charlie doesn’t make things easy. Zero’s manager is a force of nature with a razor sharp tongue, a quick wit, and a no-nonsense attitude. Ky can’t stop thinking about him. Winning over Charlie becomes Ky’s pet project. But when the ice between them thaws, neither is prepared for the intensity of going from enemies to lovers. They’ll have to decide if they’re willing to start from scratch and take a chance on the unexpected.

Excerpt

“I know that was random, but it’s not a bad idea if you think about it. Want something to drink?” Charlie asked as he moved toward the kitchen.

I grabbed his wrist before he got anywhere. “Hang on. What are you doing?”

He cocked his head curiously but didn’t pull away. “I’m being practical. If you read any further about Virgos you probably found out we’re known for being sensible. And polite. So, I’m politely asking if you’d like a beverage while sensibly suggesting that I help out with your skating lessons.”

“Okay. First up…I don’t want a fuckin’ snack and second, it’s not a skating lesson. We’re skateboarding,” I said, glowering at him.

“I’ve heard it said both ways. Skating, skateboarding. I looked it up in Urban Dictionary too, so I’m pretty sure I’m right.”

“No. There’s something in your tone that makes it all wrong. Like you’re purposely trying to sabotage this.”

Charlie opened his mouth in a perfect O. “Gasp! I wouldn’t do that!”

“Cut the crap. You’re doing it now. You don’t want to learn, and you don’t want Oliver to either. It’s a control thing. But you can’t control what you don’t fuckin’ get. So take a seat and let me teach him without you freaking out or—why are you looking at me like that?”

“Like what?”

“I don’t know. You’re doing something weird with your eyes, though. You look spaced out.”

“Mmm. I’m trying not to swoon. You look so fierce and you’re holding my hand, Ky. You should feel my heart. It’s beating out of my chest. Seriously.” He fluttered his lashes a few times and bit his bottom lip.

I chuckled softly and stepped closer. “Are you flirting with me, Char?”

“No, it’s the other way around. You’re flirting with me. Big macho displays really get my motor running. Medium-sized ones do too. I love it when…”

Okay, so I lost myself. I tuned out the sound of his voice and concentrated on him. The mischievous glint in his eyes, the proud set of his shoulders, and the way his mouth curled at the corner. He was doing it again. Owning the moment. Taking it over. Charlie looked for weakness in any form, then slyly made adjustments before moving in for the kill. No doubt he thought I’d back down fast and run away. I wasn’t going anywhere.

I fixated on his bottom lip and inched closer. He kept talking…something about dick size or muscles…I wasn’t sure, but I liked the cadence of his voice. The teasing lilt and easy humor. I let go of his wrist, brushing his fingers before setting my hand on his hip. He went perfectly still.

Before he could ask me what the fuck I was doing, I kissed him.

It was more of a press of lips than a grand gesture. And though it might not rank as the kind of kiss that would change the world, I immediately knew it would change mine.

Everything in me went on high alert. I’d never been so in tune with a moment. The flutter of his eyelashes, the brush of his nose, and the soft sweetness of his lips against mine. Fuck, it was amazing. Like mind-blowing amazing. He tasted like cherries and smelled like sunshine mixed with something exotic.

I couldn’t be sure over the roar of my heart attempting to beat its way out of my chest, but I thought he hummed in approval, so I angled my head slightly to deepen the connection and pulled him closer. If he was anyone else, I probably would have stuck my tongue between his lips and let my hands roam all over his body. I wanted to, but I didn’t want to scare either of us. So I stayed where I was until the need for oxygen became an issue.

Then I jumped back two feet and stared at him with my eyes bugged out. “Holy fuck.”

Charlie set his fingers on his bottom lip and blinked like he was coming out of a daze. “You kissed me,” he said softly.

Book blurb

 

Movie star 101: A smile hides all pain.

Quellcrist King has been playing a part his entire life. The more famous he becomes, the more he hides. The only person he ever let see the real him rose with him from nothing to the very top.

They were the king and queen of Hollywood— and then she wanted a divorce. The only way to survive his depression is to bury himself in work. If he can be a character, maybe he won’t have to remember himself. A gay role can’t be any different than playing a straight one, can it?

But instead of finding solace in the character, he finds it in his costar. Hale becomes his best friend, his lifeline, the light in his darkness. Quell is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about himself while filming intimate scenes with Hale that feel more real than anything ever has before.

He’s lived his entire life following the script. What would life be like unscripted?

 

Chapter One Sneak Peek!

 

Quell

“You’re serious about this?” Mel sat with the television script in front of him at my rented Malibu house. He’d flown in from a project he’d been working on in Vancouver because I’d begged him to.

I knew he’d read it. He’d probably read the first draft the minute it landed in his in box. He was one of those people who couldn’t leave any alerts on his phone.

“I’m serious. I paid cash for the rights,” I said.

Mel slowly blinked. “You actors have too much cash and not enough sense. Who are you going to sell this to?”

“You don’t think with both our names attached I’ll be able to sell it?” I knew if I got him on board, I’d be able to make the project happen.

“It’s gay. And not ‘dip your toe in the gay waters and queer bait the fans’, this is like ‘in your face with a big gay dick’ gay. I should know.” Mel was perfect for this. A queer director for a queer project was something  I wholly believed in. I had to sell him on it.

“So are you, which is why I want you to be the other show runner with me.” I grinned. “I know you’ll do it right. The queer people will know you won’t bait them.”

He rolled his eyes. “Honey, you want me to make space in my schedule to do something you’re not even sure if you can sell?”

“With both our names attached, it will sell,” I said, sure he was going to do it already.

Mel scowled but he had to know I was right. “You remember you’re straight, right? Who are you going to play? There is no fucking way you’re going to be a bisexual pirate.”

“No, I’m going to be the gay prince.” I grinned because I knew he wasn’t expecting it.

“Flint.” Mel threw his head back and shook it as he spun in a slow circle in his office chair. “I googled the book on the way here after I read the script.”

“And?” I asked.

“There is explicit gay sex in it.” Mel pointed out like I hadn’t read the books.

“And?” What he didn’t know is I’d been reading the books for three years and I couldn’t stop. I couldn’t get them out of my mind. They were top of the New York Times Bestseller List and the latest had debuted at number one. That’s when I knew I had to buy the project and now.

“You’re straight,” Mel said.

“So?” I stared into his eyes.

“Who the fuck are you going to sell it to? We can’t do this shit on a network.” Mel was pointing out all the things I’d already gone over in my head.

“Good thing streaming services are all the rage. We’ll have our pick.” I was way ahead of him. He just didn’t know it yet.

He righted himself planting both feet on the ground. “Can you afford to fund a pilot? There’s a reason people like us don’t produce this stuff. Because it’s a massive investment without a promise of return. Think about it, Quell. You’re comfortable. You have a nice house. How many millions are you going to sink into this with the risk of it not selling?”

“I’m not selling a pilot. I already have meetings lined up with all the big streamers. I’m selling the season outright. The book has a track record. And with our names I’m going to sell the whole first season, maybe two.”

“The balls on you. Are they golden, Q? Are they like the size of grapefruits?” He held up his hands like he was holding a small melon.

“Tell me I can’t do it.”

“Fuck no because then you’ll do it and rub it in my face for the next fifty years.” He scrubbed a hand over his face. “Who are you going to get as writers?”

“I have a list of names. You can give me a list of names and we’ll get it together after I sell it.”

“I’ll take that drink now.”

I stood to get us both drinks, setting the aged whiskey on the table in front of him. I held up my glass and he picked his up. “To making magic and gay ass pirates.”

He clinked his glass with mine. “I didn’t say I was in yet.”

“You didn’t have to.” I sipped the whiskey, welcoming the burn in my throat.

I needed the distraction, a project to pour all my time into. My life was in shambles, but I wasn’t about to tell him that. If he thought I was doing this for anything other than love for the project, he wouldn’t do it. And I did love it. I’d been obsessed with the books from the first pages. I wanted to lose myself in this world to forget my reality and I had the ability to make it a reality for a little while.

“Are you really going to be able to shoot the sex? You’re straight.”

“You’ve said that. How many times have you seen me film straight sex scenes with someone I wasn’t attracted to?”

“Onion breath was bad. She used to come stand behind me.”

I shuddered. “Michael Bay always picks the weirdest people to be obsessed with.”

“No shit.” He set his glass in front of himself and spun it in place. “Is Rachael okay with you doing this?”

It didn’t matter what Rachael was okay with anymore, but I wasn’t allowed to tell him that. We were going to pretend to be happy until her next movie was out. Because happy Hollywood couples sold movies.

“She told me to do what makes me happy.” Which was more like a fuck off when she’d said it, but it still amounted to the same thing.

“You giving her a part on it?”

“No, she’s booked solid.” Or so I was going to tell people.

“What? She always comes with you to shoots.” He tilted his head and stared at me.

“I know.” I faked a smile. Sometimes being an actor saved my life. “But we can’t work it out. It will be fine. I’ll have way more to do with this project being the show runner.”

“No shit. I don’t think you know what you’re getting yourself into.”

I did know and I needed it. I needed to not be in my head for a little while because I couldn’t sit home another day watching my life falling apart around me and not lose it.

“Do you realize I’m going to enjoy every minute of you awkwardly having to make gay sex convincing?”

“You’re going to have to give me all the pointers then.”

“I could show you.” He wagged his brows at me.

And we both cringed then laughed.

“Can you imagine?” I asked.

“It would be like fucking my brother. No thanks. But that won’t stop me from staring at your ass.”

“Like you haven’t seen it.” I scoffed. “And my balls when we were filming in New Zealand and we had that wardrobe thing.”

He slapped his thigh and whiskey came out of his nose. “Fuck me. I’d forgotten about that. Who the fuck is going to let the two of us loose in charge?”

“They will.”

“I know. It’s the scary part, yeah?”

I slid papers over the table.

He picked them up. “I’ll have my lawyer go over them and send them back.”

“Better do it quick. I have meetings Monday to sell it.”

Mel’s mouth dropped open. Exactly what I’d been hoping he’d do. “You dog.”

“And when I say you’ve joined on, it will make the deal what much sweeter.”

“How far is this along?”

“I’ve been busy, and I wanted you to join on because you thought it was a good idea not because you thought it was already sold,” I admitted.

“You know I wouldn’t do anything I didn’t think was a good idea.” He crossed his arms over his chest and I was worried I’d offended him.

“I know but still. I wanted to sell you on it.”

He nodded. “I guess I’m extending through Monday.”

A grin spread across my face. “Can you afford to?”

“My assistant director can do what needs to be done for the weekend. Most everyone is off anyway.”

“Good. It will be better to have you there.” It was all coming together.

“Where’s Rachael?” Mel glanced around my office like he hadn’t noticed she wasn’t in the house before.

“Filming. They needed to fix a scene they found an issue with in post-production.”

“You didn’t go with her?” I felt like my excuses were Swiss cheese and if Mel saw through me already, maybe everyone else would too.

“No, I was taking care of this. It’s just for a few days.”

“Do you really have the time in your schedule to go right into this?”

“Yeah, Rachael and I talked about it. She starts her new movie and I didn’t want to let this go. It’s all about timing. She’ll be finishing up by the time we go to film and she can come up to Vancouver when she’s done.”

He nodded, satisfied. Maybe I could do this. Maybe I could carry the secret that was slowly killing me. If I didn’t say it out loud, it wasn’t real.

fall deepAlex:
Nobody knows the real me. I didn’t choose to be famous or wealthy, and I’ve seen firsthand how the media ruins lives–including mine. So I keep everything secret, controlled, and undisclosed. Especially the fact that I’m attracted to men.

And then Landon Luna breaks right through my shell. He’s a whirling tornado of flirtation, blond hair, and irresistible lips. He’s a ray of sunshine in my lonely life, and I desperately need to keep him close. But he refuses to sign my contract. And now every time his lips touch mine, it’s dangerous. So why can’t I stop?

With a reporter following my every move, the pressure is on. I need to keep things locked down. Need to keep myself under control. But I also need Landon–body and soul.

And no matter the danger, no matter the risk, I get what I want.
Even if it costs me everything.

Landon:
I’ve spent my whole life falling in love too fast. It’s the same story every time: I meet hot guys, I fall so deep, I give them everything… and then they run away.

But then I meet Alex Aldridge. Alex is everything I’ve daydreamed about since boyhood–wicked hot, brooding, and secretly passionate as hell. He’s an heir to a technology empire, but behind all his money, he’s got an ocean of secrets. Like the fact that he’s into men. And the fact that he wants me.

There’s just one catch: Alex forbids me from telling a single soul that I’m seeing him. And he offers me an exorbitant sum of money to ensure my silence. The offer stings–but the thought of losing him hurts even more. Because after falling into bed with him, I’ve started falling in love.

I’ve never been good at secrets.
Especially ones that hurt.
But I don’t think I can let him go.

threeI was left at the altar by my fiancée, but my two groomsmen are only too happy to comfort me.

Ricky:

I thought I was in love with Janine. She’s beautiful, sweet, and we’ve been dating since freshman year of college. It was the best day of my life when I asked her to marry me, and she said yes. But then Janine jilts me at the altar and leaves me like a fool before three hundred guests. I want to cry. I want to break down, and sob like a baby while sitting on the church steps. Good thing my groomsmen Hudson and Hayden are on hand to comfort me. But when their comfort goes beyond mere friendship, suddenly I’m forced to come face to face with the real Ricky who’s been hiding in the closet his whole life.

Hayden:

My twin Hudson and I have been friends with Ricky since we were tots. We defended him against kindergarten bullies and did our best to shield him from the ups and downs of life. But now, Ricky’s been left at the altar by his long-time sweetheart. We never thought it was going to work with a woman, but it wasn’t our place to question his sexuality.

Now Ricky tells us he has feelings. For us. Real feelings that run deep and strong, not to mention a magnetic physical attraction that pulses in the air. However, he’s conflicted because after a lifetime of living as a hetero man, the adjustment is difficult. He questions himself, thinking that his attraction to men might just be a reflexive reaction to his recent trauma of being jilted at the altar. How can we help him find himself and see the light? Living as a gay man is never easy, but Ricky’s emotional conflict is taking a toll and breaking our hearts. How do we help Ricky accept himself, when he’s afraid to batter down the closet doors for good?

camp howl.jpgA Camp H.O.W.L. Novel

Moonmates exist, but getting together is going to be a beast….

When Adrian Rothschild skipped his “werewolf puberty,” he assumed he was, somehow, human. But he was wrong, and he’s about to go through his Turn with a country between him and his Pack—scared, alone, and eight years late.

Dr. Tate Lewis’s werewolf supremacist father made his Turn miserable, and now Tate works for Camp H.O.W.L. to ease the transition for young werewolves. He isn’t expecting to offer guidance to a grown man—or find his moonmate in Adrian. Tate doesn’t even believe in the legendary bond; after all, his polygamist father claimed five. But it’s clear Adrian needs him, and if Tate can let his guard down, he might discover he needs Adrian too.

A moonmate is a wolf’s missing piece, and Tate is missing a lot of pieces. But is Adrian up to the challenge?

outI’m used to acting, but can falling in love with the man of my dreams help me take off my mask and face reality?

Wherever I go, it seems I never fit in. I’m a Broadway actor, but I was just offered what most people would think is the opportunity of a lifetime: the starring role of detective on a new TV drama series. At first, I’m not sure if I should take it, because I know it involves not only acting on set, but also playing a role in real life that doesn’t let me be true to myself.

Nigel, the nerdy-but-hot law school student who frequents the coffee shop I work at when I’m not acting, is the only guy who seems to truly get me. He understands that more than money or fame, I just want the chance to pursue my passion for acting.

A romance soon heats up between us, and I have finally found the place where I belong: with him, and his friends at the law firm he works at part-time while going to school. This handsome, smart, funny man knows not only how to turn me on in the bedroom but also how to strut his stuff in polyester skin-tight disco pants and four-inch platform shoes on Christopher Street when we go out with the tribe that has accepted me as one of their own now.

But will Nigel and I be pulled apart by my agent Ethan’s desire to keep me closeted so that the show’s mostly female audience will still have a reason to swoon over me?

Or, when I realize that Ethan has evil intentions, will Nigel and his lawyer friends help me not only come out of the closet professionally but also to out-maneuver Ethan and the studio in the courtroom?

Out Maneuvered is an opposites-attract, coming out/ out for you steamy male/male romance with a bit of legal drama and a hefty dose of comedy thrown in. Part of the Legally Yours series, it is a full-length novel of approximately 70,000 words with no cliffhanger, it combines humor, heat, heart, and a very happy ever after.
