In 1846 London, respectable young men do not fall for street thieves. This is the love story of Oliver Twist and the Artful Dodger.
Oliver Twist has one desire: to own a bookshop and live a simple, middle-class life, far away from his workhouse-shadowed past. One thing stands in his way: Jack Dawkins–The Artful Dodger–who’s just returned to London and is looking for Fagin’s old gang.
Jack’s visits cause Oliver nothing but trouble, but he finds himself drawn, time and again, to their shared past, Jack’s unguarded honesty, and those bright, green eyes.
Oliver craves respectability, which he won’t find with a forbidden love. Can Jack convince Oliver that having one doesn’t mean losing the other?
A gay, m/m Victorian-era romance with grumpy/sunshine, hurt/comfort, opposites attract, emotional scars, and pure, sweet love. A little sweet, a little steamy, with a guaranteed HEA.

A temptation too hot to resist…
Alpha Lowell is a grumpy wolf shifter. Isolated, independent, and he doesn’t need anyone’s help. Except… he kind of needs some help. In this day and age, as big-city society encroaches on the wild, a lone wolf roaming the woods is more likely to get shot by a hunter—or worse. Lowell needs a pack. And it just so happens that the Dusk Fall pack is accepting new members. And even better, they love his baking enough to pay for it.
When omega human Hank and his alpha twin sister Greer are gifted with a wilderness scavenger hunt, they feel obligated to participate, no matter how much they don’t mesh with the woods. Things go exactly as you would expect for a couple city slickers without any experience with the outdoors. Hungry, tired, and lost, they stumble on a cabin filled with the most delicious scent. Pies of every flavor! Surely it wouldn’t hurt to take a bite…
When Lowell comes home to find a whole batch of pies ruined, he demands the twins make things right. It’s a good thing Hank knows his way around a kitchen. Alone all night with a sexy omega makes Lowell’s temperature rise, and it’s not only the oven that gets hot. There’s no question they have great chemistry, but is this bitter wolf sweet enough? Or will their attempt at a relationship fall flat?
Harper B. Cole, Colbie Dunbar, and Trisha Linde bring you Seared, the third book in the Fairest of Them All series. The novel features an alpha wolf learning what it means to belong, an omega willing to take a leap of faith, a lucky encounter at just the right time to save them both, an unexpected pregnancy, an adorable baby, and a most scrumptious HEA. If you love stories featuring a couple determined to beat the odds to find their happily ever after, grab your copy today.

After Emery Hazard loses his job as a detective in Saint Louis, he heads back to his hometown–and to the local police force there. Home, though, brings no happy memories, and the ghosts of old pain are very much alive in Wahredua. Hazard’s new partner, John-Henry Somerset, had been one of the worst tormentors, and Hazard still wonders what Somerset’s role was in the death of Jeff Langham, Hazard’s first boyfriend.
When a severely burned body is discovered, Hazard finds himself drawn deeper into the case than he expects. Determining the identity of the dead man proves impossible, and solving the murder grows more and more unlikely. But as the city’s only gay police officer, Hazard is placed at the center of a growing battle between powerful political forces. To his surprise, Hazard finds an unlikely ally in his partner, the former bully. And as they spend more time together, something starts to happen between them, something that Hazard can’t–and doesn’t want–to explain.
The discovery of a second mutilated corpse, though, reveals clues that the two murders are linked, and as Hazard gets closer to answers, he uncovers a conspiracy of murder and betrayal that goes deeper–and closer to home–than he could ever expect.

Penn from Adelaide. That’s all I knew.
We shared a single kiss over a year ago, and I can still remember every toe-curling second of it. He thought I was too young for him. I thought he was running scared. But that kiss was the first time I’d felt alive in a long time, and I’ve been chasing the feeling ever since—doing my research, a lot of research, a lot of men. Something my protective older brother isn’t too happy about.
I’ve been through more than most guys my age, and I still bear the scars. My head’s not always my best friend, but I’m building a life, PTSD be damned. I can’t turn back the clock, and I’m not sure I want to.
Except maybe to that moment when Penn kissed me. I mean, the odds of us ever meeting again were slim to none, right?
Yeah, about that.
But this time I’m ready. I’m a year older, an ocean of therapy wiser, and I know exactly what I want.
Triggers: One of the main characters in this book lives with PTSD as a result of a fire, and within the story there are flashbacks and descriptions of triggering events. There are also themes of loss and grief.
