bedfellowsIf politics makes for strange bedfellows, perhaps no bedfellows are stranger than Grant Lambert and Austin Peebles.

Austin Peebles is a professional politician with a problem: a prominent rightwing blogger has come into possession of a compromising cell phone photo of the congressional candidate…an image that could derail his campaign.

Enter Grant Lambert—a professional criminal who lives so far below society’s radar he’s never even registered to vote—and his partner in life and crime, Chase LaMarca. If Grant and Chase can make the picture disappear, they’ll make a cool $30,000. It sounds like easy money to the cash-strapped criminals, but then more pictures turn up, the double- and triple-crosses begin, and Grant, Chase, and their gang of gay and lesbian confederates find themselves immersed in the brutal sport of politics, as the stakes grow larger and the bedfellows get stranger and stranger…

sexyA Middlemark Mystery

Dr. Llewellyn Lewis leads a double life, as both an awkward but distinguished history professor and the more flamboyant Ramon Rondell, infamous writer of sensational historical theories. It’s Ramon who first sets eyes on a gorgeous young man dancing in a club, but Llewellyn who meets teaching assistant Blaise Arthur formally at an event held for wealthy socialite Anne de Vere, descendant of Edward de Vere, seventeenth Earl of Oxford—who some believe was the real Shakespeare. Anne wants Llewellyn to prove that claim, even though many have tried and failed. And she’s willing to offer a hefty donation to the university if he succeeds.

It also means a chance for Llewellyn to get to know Blaise much better.

Not everyone thinks Llewellyn should take the case—or the money. Between feuding siblings, rival patrons, jealous colleagues, and greedy administrators, almost anyone could be trying to thwart his work… and one of them is willing to kill to do it.

When Anne de Vere turns up dead, the police believe Blaise is the murderer. Only the shy, stuttering professor who has won his heart can prove otherwise….

He finds his way to Pennsylvania State University, longing for a rural experience, and ends up being lured into joining a frat by Micah Springfield, the hippest guy on campus.

Nothing in Sloane’s classes is as intriguing as Hank Springfield, Micah’s brother and fellow frat house member.

He’s presumably straight, but then why does Sloane feel such crazy chemistry whenever Hank is around? And why does Hank hate Sloane so much?

When Sloane ends up stuck on campus over Christmas, Micah invites him to spend the holidays at their family farm in Amish country. It’s a chance to experience a true Americana Christmas–and further investigate the mystery that is Hank Springfield.

Parents. Kids. The holiday season. Make that: estranged, haven’t-seen-them-in-twelve-years parents. And a three month old.

Rory has the family he always wanted and never dreamed he’d get: his husband Geo is both his best friend and his rock. Their daughter is definitely the smartest, most amazing infant on earth. It’s Thanksgiving, and Rory’s got a whole lot to be thankful for.

Inviting his parents out for a holiday reunion seemed like a good idea at the time. The reality is driving Rory to find hiding places all over the house. His dad hardly speaks, his mom keeps shooting weird looks at Geo, and their huge extended chosen family is bouncing off the walls.

The only thing keeping Rory tied to the moment is Geo. Well. Geo and the ball gag in his pocket.

rykerThis New Adult book is the first in the Owatonna U Series, a spin off from the best selling Harrisburg Railers Hockey Series.

Ryker is hockey royalty, Jacob is a poor country boy. Can two vastly different people find common ground and become the men they want to be?

Ryker comes from a long line of championship-winning hockey players. Playing college hockey to develop his game is his only focus, and nothing will stand in the way of him working to become the best player. He has no room for relationships, people who point out his flaws, or anyone who calls him on his dreams. He certainly has no place for love, and meeting Jacob is nothing but a useful distraction on the side. After all trying to get his Owatonna Eagles teammate into bed is less work and more play. When tragedy rocks his family, his charmed life crumbles, and the only person he can turn to is the same one who claims to hate him.

Jacob Benson has only known hard work and stifling conservative values his whole life. Born and raised in the small rural community of Eden Crossing, Minnesota, he’s the only son of a hard-working but struggling dairy farming family. Jacob is using his skills in hockey to finance his way to an agricultural science degree. These four years at Owatonna U. will probably be the only time he has to enjoy life, gain acceptance about his sexuality, and live openly before his inevitable return to the farm. Running into a pretty rich boy like Ryker Madsen is putting a damper on his enjoyment of life away from home. Ryker’s flip, conceited, carefree attitude grates on Jacob’s every nerve. So why, if Ryker is everything he dislikes, does he want nothing more than to explore the sinful dreams that his annoying teammate stars in every night?

deviate“Must read debut of 2019!”

Falling for him was not part of the plan. 

It was the perfect plan. I would marry one of my closest friends and reap the financial rewards. He needed a savior right when I showed up on my white horse. We’d been friends for years, so now we’d be glorified roommates. No one had to know two straight guys decided to tie the knot. We agreed nothing would change. We’d just go on with our normal lives.

That was the plan until I started to notice more about him than just his laid back vibe. I started to look forward to coming home. I lived to talk books, art, and love. Suddenly, we were both feeling things that didn’t make any sense. We didn’t date men. We had to make a decision – act on the attraction or try to pretend it wasn’t there.

One thing about perfect plans – sometimes you have to deviate.

Love in the City is a collection of standalone MM romances focused on the lives of men in and around New York City. It is intended for mature readers.

box set.jpgThis special edition, Gay Romance collection contains six novels.

1. Scars

Caleb always knew that his work was dangerous. For years, he’d thrived on the adrenaline rush, the danger thrumming under his skin, the tangible efforts of his labor a secondary reward when the flames flickered away to nothing and he was able to save a building, or save a life. He’d thought that the Johnson City Fire Station 10 was his home – until he got caught in a building with no way out.

Henry wasn’t always shy and meek. As a child he’d always been buoyant and vivacious; in university he was the life of the party. And then he met Pritchard, and before he knew it he was skipping classes, flunking out, and isolated from his friends and family on threat of Pritchard’s fists. Finally finding the courage to leave him was the best thing that Henry’s ever done for himself – and also the hardest.

Caleb and Henry are both trying to put their lives back together, both scarred in different and lingering ways. Henry’s bruises might have healed – but Pritchard’s fists had left their mark on his soul. And Caleb’s body is still healing from the burns and broken bones he’d suffered in that burning house. Neither of them are looking for love. Neither of them want someone to look beyond the surface. A quick jolt of pleasure is all they need before going their separate ways again… right?

2. Slander

Benedict d’Arcy has never had to worry about where his next meal was coming from, or whether he’d have enough to purchase the season’s latest fashions. Growing up in the prestigious d’Arcy family meant comfort, stability, and a certain amount of lavish opulence. But when his beloved father dies, leaving his stepmother in charge of the family’s assets, Benedict is demoted from shining star to suspicious freeloader.

Kota’s parents have always been wealthy, too, but Kota chose another path in life – becoming a police officer. He’s comfortable in his small home, knowing that he’s benefiting his community and making a difference in the world. He’s a simple man, with simple pleasures, and the only thing that’s missing from his life is a committed partnership with someone he loves.

When Benedict’s suspicions about his stepmother’s involvement in his father’s death begin to grow and manifest, he decides that it’s time for him to leave the family home – at least until he has concrete proof against his stepmother. But he mistimes his efforts, and something goes wrong – he’s being followed. When he stumbles into the next county’s annual Policeman’s Ball, he doesn’t expect for a man with kind eyes and gentle hands to help him to his feet and claim that they’re together. He doesn’t expect an immediate show of trust and willingness to get to the bottom of his situation.

And he sure as hell doesn’t expect their one night of pretending to be in a relationship to lead to something more – something authentic.

3. Secrets

Crew Turner didn’t make his decision to leave the military lightly. He’s always enjoyed being with his brothers in arms, even if it did mean traveling far from his home and family and seeing unspeakable horrors.

Mark Hartnett doesn’t go out much. Ashamed of the large birthmark that covers his upper body, and too nerdy to have much in common with the general public, he has few friends, preferring to live his life behind a computer monitor.

Crew makes Mark want all the things he never thought he’d have – but Crew is hiding something underneath his good old boy façade, and those secrets might just tear them apart.

razeSometimes the walls we build to save ourselves have to come tumbling down.

For the last ten years, Huey has built his life around his sobriety. If that means he doesn’t give a damn about finding love or companionship for himself, well, it’s probably better that way. After all, the last thing he wants is to hurt anyone else. Until Felix Rainey walks into his bar, fresh-faced, unbearably sweet–and, for some reason Huey can’t fathom, interested in him.

Now in his twenties, he’s still scrambling to make ends meet and wondering what the hell he’s doing with his life. When he meets Huey, he’s intimidated . . . and enamored. Huey’s strong and confident, he owns his own business–hell, he’s friends with rock stars. What could he ever see in Felix?

As Huey and Felix get closer, the spark catches and soon they can’t get enough of each other. But Huey’s worked hard to avoid intimacy, and Felix threatens his carefully constructed defenses. Huey realizes he needs to change if he wants to truly put his past behind him–and build a future with Felix.

rumspringaWhen two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?

In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he’ll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can’t name.

Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can’t put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.

Now that they’ve found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

This gay romance from Keira Andrews is the first book in a series of forbidden Amish love. It contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, Jane Austen levels of pining, family drama, and of course a happy ending.

And since he’s never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn’t a priority….

Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen’s life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other’s hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he’s harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.

If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he’ll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he’s worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.

matchmakingEndure the company of his rival…or suffer ghostly retaliation.

Emery Belmont is a snarky, uptight realist who likes his life ordinary. Like any skeptic, he’s content using mundane explanations to write off signs of paranormal activity. That’s no longer an option when the spirit haunting his house wrecks his new kitchen, forcing Emery closer to facing the supernatural truth. Desperate for a new handyman, he unknowingly hires his hot ex-rival from high school to fix it. Paxton Santos, Emery’s former lacrosse team captain, followed in his father’s footsteps to take over the family business. Annoyingly, Emery requires his talented hands more than he needs to keep Paxton out of his life. However, getting Paxton to leave after the repairs may prove difficult with the meddlesome ghost taking a shine to him, which Paxton seems to take in his grating, good-natured stride, remaining irritatingly unruffled by numerous weird occurrences.

Emery is bombarded by mysterious paranormal hijinks, keeping Paxton at arm’s length, and deciphering things that aren’t quiet what they seem. There’s nothing Emery hates more than an unfinished puzzle. In his determination to solve this one, Emery reluctantly opens himself up to new possibilities all while trying to remain firmly rooted in life the way he prefers it—orderly, logically explainable, and, above all else, ghost-free.

Join Emery and Paxton as they face off with a spirit that has no limits to how far it will go to push them together, enduring locked doors, faulty plumbing, and sharing a bed. Together they are determined to navigate their way out of this mess using any means necessary to send the ghost packing. Will they make it out of the traps awaiting them before their pesky tormenter gets any other ideas to make things worse and further blur the line between them?

Matchmaking Beyond the Veil is a 107k slow burn MM romance of rivals to friends to lovers told in single POV. Featuring a meddling ghost playing at matchmaker, forced proximity, bed sharing, ghost tours that totally aren’t dates, and tongue-in-cheek humor. This story ends on a HFN ending with a soft cliffhanger. Emery and Paxton’s story will continue in the next book of the series, Telltale Ghosts Book 2. This book contains denial, an unreliable narrator, two men experimenting with sex magic, fighting what the heart wants, steamy explicit sexual scenes and colorful language intended for adults 18 and older.

counting.jpgCounting: Book One

There are over two hundred thousand fence posts between Syracuse and Boston. Henry Auttenberg likes numbers—it’s his job—but he isn’t going to count them all, even if the view outside the rental car is less confounding than the driver, his attractive but oh so obnoxious colleague, Marcus Winnamore. It’s Christmas Eve, and Henry would much rather be home with his family. When the blizzard that grounded their flight forces them off the road, however, he’s stuck with Marc until the storm passes—or a plow digs them out.

As the temperature outside plummets, the atmosphere inside the car slowly heats up. Henry learns the true reason for Marc’s chilly distance—he’s not exactly straight… maybe… and he’s been fantasizing about Henry’s mouth, among other things. Confession laid out, Marc is all for sharing body heat… and more. Henry isn’t interested in being an experiment, but as the night and cold deepen, he could be convinced to balance certain risk against uncertain reward.

running offParris: I spent a lifetime in Umberland one weekend. That’s what it’s like in small towns, and also why I don’t come back too often. I never felt I fit in, until I left. Life as an international photographer suits me a lot better than life in this sleepy little town. But I promised to stay a few weeks to appease my mom. Things take a turn for the worse when I accidentally hit an off-leash dog, but when we get to the vet, I find out this dog’s owner is a hot mechanic. While I’m stuck here, I figure I’ll get to know him — wink wink — to stave off the inevitable boredom.

Once he forgives me, things with Caleb move fast. He’s tougher to let go of than I dreamed anyone or anything could be. But I’m here for a good time, not a long time. And it’s time for me to fly.

How come it doesn’t feel so good to run off and escape my hometown? Why do I miss him so much? And how is Umberland feeling less like a jail, and more like… my home?

Caleb: Umberland is my life. I’m a good son. I take care of my mom–she and her therapy dog need me. So when some playboy hotshot hits Mom’s dog with his car, I’m ready to blow. But then he turns out to be really kind, and… really s*xy. He makes me feel things I haven’t felt in, maybe, ever. We get close. And I start to dream of more.

But like I said, I’m a good son. I’m the only one who can take care of mom, so I won’t get involved with a player. But she likes Parris. And when she starts to push me out of the nest, it hurts to realize that I might be the one holding myself back.

Running Off is the fifth book in the Rainier Family series and can be read on its own. 55k words of heart-warming, star-crossed, meant-to-be love, growing up and out, busybody Rainiers, and a whole big, bustling, small-town family waiting for its HEA.

other half“Of course I’d end up owning a house with the stranger I tongue-kissed while high at a funeral. It’s like the only possible outcome with me.”

Chris Solomon has it all – a career, a New York apartment, a hot model fiancé, and a wedding to plan. Then there’s the house in New Hampshire, a historic farmhouse belonging to his childless Aunt Becky, a prize that Chris’s family always expected would be divided between Chris and his sister Josephine.

So comes as something of a shock when Aunt Becky dies and leaves Josephine’s half of the house to a pansexual male stripper named Jody Ohanian.

When Chris’s life and relationship explode in dramatic fashion, he heads for the peace and quiet of New Hampshire, only to find that the sexy, unconventional Jody has already moved into his half of the house. And that the place looks a cross between Grey Gardens and The Money Pit.

It’s the last place in the world Chris anticipates finding comfort or joy, but love has a habit of blooming where you least expect it.

The characters in this 80,000 word novel are far from perfect, so if all infidelity offends you, best skip this one.
