FBI agent Axel Bates is supposed to have a week off work, but when his best friend calls and begs him to protect his twin brother, how can he say no? But saving Maze turns into more than a simple rescue mission. There’s nothing in the rulebook about living with a mobster and certainly nothing about falling in love with one.
Maze Romero is a powerful and dangerous man. Finding out that someone wants him dead doesn’t come as a surprise to him. He took over the family business to protect his brother, but when he’s the one in need of protection, the enigmatic man coming to his rescue is not what he was expecting. Neither are the emotions Axel stirs up in him.
Maze pushes a lot of Axel’s buttons and being stuck in close quarters together leads to unexpected things. Axel knows it’s dangerous to want Maze, but the sexy, alluring man is everything he’s ever wanted. Can they work together to stop those who want Maze dead, or will the fling that’s only supposed to be temporary get in the way?
“This urban fantasy series follows psychic detective Victor Bayne and partner Jacob Marks in a world where psychic ability is accepted, if still a bit creepy. … Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake books would enjoy this series with paranormal activity as well as romance.” – Library Journal
Once upon a time if you told doctors you heard voices, they’d diagnose you as schizophrenic, put you on heavy drugs, and lock you away in a cozy state institution to keep you from hurting yourself or others. Nowadays they test you first to see if you’re psychic.
Victor Bayne, the psychic half of a PsyCop team, is a gay medium who’s more concerned with flying under the radar than making waves.
He hooks up with handsome Jacob Marks, a non-psychic (or “Stiff”) from an adjacent precinct at his ex-partner’s retirement party, and it seems like his dubious luck has taken a turn for the better. But then a serial killer surfaces who can change his appearance to match any witness’ idea of the world’s hottest guy.
Solving murders is a snap when you can ask the victims whodunit, but this killer’s not leaving any spirits behind.
Jonah Beckett has been in love with his older brother’s best friend, George “Laurie” DeWitt, since he was thirteen-years-old. When his boyfriend, Dirk, breaks up with him for refusing to put out, Jonah uses his heartbreak over the situation as an excuse to ask Laurie to teach him all about sex before he starts college in the fall. Problem is, he made Dirk up, and Jonah has no idea what will happen when Laurie finally finds out the truth.

“Reed was an experiment. A good time I needed to leave behind to focus on my music.”
Zac was once Bobby, a small-town boy raised by his grandparents in a mountain cabin. But he had to leave Bobby– and Bobby’s best friend Reed– far behind if he wanted to claw his way to the top of the charts. Ten years later, bounced from the band he founded, he has nowhere else to go except back home.
“Zac says we’re friends with benefits, but I wonder if I’m just a substitute for his old flame.”
Reed hasn’t seen Bobby for ten years after making the hard choice to leave music to study medicine. When cult musician Zac moves into the old Mason cabin, Reed didn’t expect him to turn out to be his Bobby from way back when. And the freshly minted doctor certainly didn’t plan on so much attention from tabloid gossip sites who keep insisting Zac and his ex are going to be reunited at any moment.

I swore I’d never set foot in this town again. But Abingdon needs me. And Kendall Vincent is giving me a damn good reason to stay.
Gil: I was tired of working the police beat in Northern Cali. Exhausted—my whole body was yearning for a place I hadn’t been in years, my old home. When my mama died, I knew I had to come back, and a pay bump and new job as police chief sealed the deal.
I got away from heartbreak. From being so tired. From the constant, never-ending world of crime I’d come to know.
In Abingdon, I can relax, see all my old friends from Jackson Academy. Maybe I can even change this place a little, make it better for all the kids like me. The ones who were different, who always needed a place a little bigger and broader than a small mountain town could provide.
I always promised myself I wouldn’t come back.
But Kendall Vincent—he might just get me to stay for good. When I’m in his arms, I feel complete, whole again, like a man reborn to the world.
Everything seems perfect, right up until the moment that it’s not.
When two gay kids get hurt bad by a gang of thugs, I realize that Abingdon needs me far more than I thought.
And I’m here to protect the town—and the man—that I’m growing to love.
Kendall: I’ve survived everything this world has tossed my way—ignorant parents, falling for men who want to play straight, and running a food truck in a town that likes its men butch and its hot dogs bland as all hell.
I even got through chemo and three bone marrow transplants when I was a kid.
But nothing prepared me for meeting Gilman Steele.
Six feet of pure muscle with eyes that shine like gold and a smile I’d like to see every morning for the rest of my life.
I know I’m crazy, but I swear to God almighty that I fell in love with that man of Steele from the moment I laid eyes on him.
There’s a secret I know that could change my relationship with Gil, a lie I’ve been hiding for over a year.
It could threaten Gil’s life here, everything he’s worked for. But justice is justice, and I believe in the Abingdon that Gil wants to create.
When the drama gets worse than I ever imagined, I realize that Gil’s not the only one in danger.
I’m toppling off a bridge and getting sucked down into the murky water of Holston Lake when I know for sure—this isn’t the day I die.
I didn’t survive everything I’ve been through just to die at the hands of an evil man with a secret far darker than my own.
I’ll make my way back to Gil. He’s mine, and I plan to let him know it.
This town might not be ready for us, but I am. And I plan to let the world know it.

What would you do to save your most important friendship?
Theo’s a dedicated charity worker alpha in Hong Kong who guides the city’s alphas and omegas through a maze of legal tangles.
His friend from college, an omega named Oliver, is a wealthy antique dealer whose family fled northern China in the late 1940s.
Whether eating noodles on the street, rubbing elbows with the well-to-do on Victoria Peak or shuffling mahjong tiles, the pair share a strong bond—but it’s always been platonic apart from a messy, drunken hook up.
When winds from four directions blow through the hills named after dragons and create chaos, the alpha grapples with his feelings.
But Oliver hopes for something romantic. And that something terrifies Theo and threatens to tear them apart.
The pair wrestle with doubt, fear and uncertainty, and then face a more tangible threat. But the once-fragrant harbor refuses to disclose its secrets until an unexpected source uncovers Theo and Oliver’s future. Are they destined to be?
On the heels of a painful and long overdue breakup, what Victor Nelson needs is time to lick his wounds. What he doesn’t need is everyone in his family trying to play matchmaker so he can find someone new… which is exactly what they’ll do at the three stupid weddings he has to attend this summer.
Fortunately, it’s Dominic Lowe to the rescue. Dom is more than willing to come along to all the weddings as his best friend’s “boyfriend”… even if he’d much rather be there as Vic’s real boyfriend.
Convincing people they’re a couple is easy. The charade is miserable for Dom, though, after years of being madly in love with Vic. But maybe those three weddings are a rehearsal for the relationship he knows they could have for real.
This asexual M/M romance is approximately 38,000 words long.

“He was like if water caught fire—a beautiful anomaly. It was gorgeous. Danny wanted to exist inside that explosion and let himself be consumed by it.”
With his life upended at the sight of his cheating boyfriend, Danny Zhou flees across the country with two million dollars in his bank account, and a broken heart to mend.

Uncertain where his future lies, Danny hopes to start over.

Will working together lead to a happy ending, or will Danny find that true love just isn’t in his cards?
