BFFThis is the story of two men widely separated in age, one American and one British, with very different educational backgrounds, who became as close as any two friends could be. There were ups and downs in their relationship over the years, but overall it was an amazing adventure that brought great happiness to both of them. Their first meeting was in a hotel room in central London. Brian was looking for sex and Lee was looking for money, but each of them had a deeper need. Each needed a friend, a true friend. Brian needed a friend who would fulfill his physical needs but still would remain his friend. Lee needed a friend who would provide the financial support that he needed without making excessive demands and more important, would always show him respect. This memoir, which they wrote together, tells of the life of each man up to the time when they met and of how their lives changed afterwards.

killerIt’s my job to protect the Morelli men when the law is after them.
But now their most dangerous Capo has killed to protect me.

My law firm has two unbreakable rules.

1. Never get personally involved with a client.

Nick Fontana was only ever supposed to be a booty call, but he’s had me cross-examining my heart since we started hooking up.

2. Never let the Morellis do you a favor.

I can’t stop thinking about his talented hands on my body…but those hands just took the wrong life to save mine.

I helped Nick cover up what he did, because if anyone finds out, it would start a Mob War that could destroy us all.

But someone knows our deadly secret.

I’ve kept my mouth shut. So can I really trust the killer I’ve been kissing?

Kissed by a Killer is best enjoyed as part of the Morelli Family mafia romance series. Characters and events from previous books are referenced. This book ends with an HEA/HFN but there is a cliffhanger for the overarching series plot.

psyncTouch.

It’s what most of us crave. A source of comfort, companionship, and desire.

For Eli, it’s a source of terror.

Branded by the trauma of his past, Eli is struggling in his freshman year of college. He might be afraid of just about everything, but in his heart of hearts, he’s nobody’s bitch.

Yet it’s at his lowest point, that he first hears it. Him

The voice.

Wet feet, a frozen ass – this guy likes to complain, but why would Eli care about any of that, when he’s got his own problems? The bigger question is what, or rather who, the voice is.

Afraid it’s a sign of his fragile psyche’s demise, Eli is torn between hunting down the source to prove it’s real, and ignoring it in case it isn’t.

His eventual quest will see him grappling with geese, battling burritos, and dodging deities – all in the search for his sanity.

And maybe, just maybe, finding love.

Psync is a steamy, 18+ 94,000 word MM romance with the following tropes: Fated mates, touch aversion turned to bliss when touching your mate, hurt/comfort, yandere main character, and meddling gods.

Content warning: Trauma-related mental illness, mentions of past childhood trauma.

Xander’s parents were devastated when he decided to go into teaching instead of medicine like they’d hoped. To appease some of their heartache, he worked hard for his doctorate. With his degree in hand, he began teaching at the local community college until a spot opened at the larger university.

What Xander never told anyone was that he’d taken a side job teaching young children in foreign countries online. He created fun videos and sing-a-long songs for them to learn to. It’s where his heart flourished most.

When a student of his discovers his secret, he worries the young man will tell everyone. He didn’t expect the student to be excited for him, nor did he think the encouragement from someone else would make such a big difference in his life.

This story features a clumsy Little who is obsessed with all things water and a first-time Daddy who finds himself on the other side of the student-teacher dynamic.

This is an ABDL, MM Romance designed for readers 18+.

ruse*Finalist in the 2020 Independent Author Network Book of the Year Award for LGBTQ Fiction and Non-Fiction*

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!

Content Note: This book contains explicit sexual content and mature language. This book contains depiction and discussion of depression/seasonal affective disorder, which may be sensitive for some readers.

kyPartners in every sense of the word, Sawyer and Jackson have been a unit since they were young teenagers. Growing up together in the same foster home, they learned they could depend only on each other. But when Kyler—a boy barely half their age—arrived heartbroken and scared, the young men took him under their wings, vowing to take care of him and protect him.

But then an unimaginable nightmare tears their world apart, separating Sawyer and Jackson from Kyler. Doing their best to keep their vow, even after disaster strikes, Sawyer and Jackson try to ensure Kyler is safe as he grows up without them.

Kyler always thought running from his past was his only option, until his past catches up with him in the form of Sawyer and Jackson. He finally realizes, maybe the only way forward is to go back to the past. But in doing so, the three of them find themselves embroiled in a family vendetta that spans decades, threatening to upend their world once again.

Will Sawyer and Jackson finally be able to fulfill their promise to keep Kyler safe— while proving they accept and love him for who he is—or will the odds always be stacked against them?

Author’s Note: Kyler is genderfluid, for more specifics and/or if you prefer trigger warnings, please use the “Look Inside” feature to find them within the first several pages of the book. Ignore them, otherwise. Happy reading!
