What’s the only Christmas surprise better than a prince in disguise? Two of them.
Even though Christmas is fast-approaching, Prince Alaister is having trouble getting into the holiday spirit. A member of Parliament has been stealing and laundering public funds, and Alaister can’t rest until he solves the crime. When he tracks the stolen money from his country, Alstadia, through the Caribbean, all the way to a sleepy little town in New England, he knows he needs to follow the lead. So he books himself a holiday trip to America.
The town of Yuletide, Maine is a veritable winter wonderland, full of Christmas-themed shops, light displays, and cookie baking contests. Since no one knows he is a prince, it is tempting to dive into the celebrations. But Alaister is not here to celebrate; he is here to investigate. Which becomes difficult when he meets Ama, a handsome commoner visiting the town…or so he thinks.
But Ama is not a tourist on a Christmas vacation. He is Prince Jean-Michel Amadou Musa Des Rois, younger brother to the King of Port des Rois, a small island nation in the Caribbean. Like Alaister, Amadou has come to Yuletide following threads of corruption. An international company is laundering money through his country, and he wants to find out why. Both men are clever in their investigations, but their efforts thwart each other in a comedy of errors as their identities get tangled and their intentions get steamy.
It will take a Christmas miracle to untangle this royal ruse!

It’s totally normal for two straight guys to do this when they’re alone, right?
That’s what I keep telling myself after I meet Reggie.
I’m a pro tennis player, and I usually spend my life on the court. But an embarrassing injury in the middle of the US Open sidelined my career, landing me in the hands of my new athletic trainer.
Reggie is a big old jock with an easy smile, and my grumpy butt has never met anyone like him.
We start hanging—at the gym and at his place, on the tennis court and out at the bar.
I haven’t had a real friend in years, and Reggie’s big heart warms me deep inside.
He finds something I’ve tried to keep buried, and when we end up sweaty in a hotel bed one night, my world turns upside down.
Then comes the cabin weekend, and all the long massages at the gym…
Reggie gets his big hands all over me, and I can’t stop thinking about him.
It’s chill, though, because we’re a couple of straight guys, and this is just a bromance.
A sweaty, grunty, sticky bromance.
It can’t be more than that, not with my tennis career waiting—
and no matter what my heart insists.
Filthy Bromance is a friends-to-lovers romance with a grumpy tennis star, his big-hearted athletic trainer, and a mess of unexpected feelings. It features dirty talk and exploration on the way to a well-earned HEA. Book two of Love Unexpected, it can be enjoyed as a standalone or read along with the series.

The lure of Preston in Blake’s woodland retreat tempts him and the lacy surprises under his clothes are a present he can’t resist unwrapping. The heat between them ignites and their old feelings come rushing back, but Tinseltown is still calling Preston’s name.
Blake will have to choose whether to follow the man he’s always loved, or be left out in the cold.
Preston’s Christmas Escape contains predicament play, lingerie, paparazzi, and a second chance at love. Although set in the Pendleton Bay world, this book can be read as a standalone story.

The chase is on, and it leads to a blistering heat. Duncan doesn’t want to be tied down. Or does he?

That is, until a wily fox appears on his territory and teases him until he has no choice but to give chase. When he catches the fox, there are fireworks. The problem is, Jorik’s still hurting from a tragedy is his past, and doesn’t know how to open up. Will he let his dream fox leave?

Kidnapping with benefits.
Karis is the arrogant young prodigy of the Radiant Order, and his talent gets him plenty of attention but very few friends. Under the order’s prying eyes, there’s one secret Karis has to hide at all costs: the meddling, un-paladin-like voice in his head. Sometimes the voice is helpful. Sometimes it gets him into trouble.
This time, trouble’s name is Ronan.
Ronan does the dirty work. Anything for the trickster god he serves, no matter how tired he’s getting. He’s so used to deception, he wouldn’t recognize real love if it bit him. When he’s captured by the Radiant Order, he doesn’t think twice before kidnapping a cute little squire to cover his escape.
His new hostage is a lot more complicated than he expected.
Between escape attempts and counterspells, Karis keeps getting under Ronan’s skin, and Ronan keeps getting inside Karis’s head. And the longer they stay together, Karis starts thinking less about escaping, and more about how Ronan might taste.
But the conspiracy they’re tangled in is far deadlier than they know.
The Paladin’s Shadow is a gay fantasy romance, with enemies to lovers, hurt/comfort, and Very Inconvenient divine intervention. Book Two in the Radiance series; events from The Necromancer’s Light are referenced, but the romance arc can stand alone. 65,000 words, HEA guaranteed.
