New release - a sexy action filled romp - "Evan Sent"


 Fiction and reality become intertwined when a young movie actor playing the role of a detective finds himself in a real-life drama that threatens to bring a sudden end to his career.

Evan Ericson is young and beautiful, a former fashion model and a gifted actor. When he is offered the role of a detective in a new film noir indie movie, he jumps at the chance, certain that this is his opportunity to leave behind the notoriety of appearing in porn movies, and his dependence on drugs.

Mark Henderson is an out-of-work actor searching for his big break. When, by sheer chance, he lands a part in a new indie movie, he can’t believe his luck. Nor can he believe it when he meets Evan Ericson. Sparks fly at their first encounter. When rehearsing their roles, Mark’s world is rocked by Evan’s kiss and a new Hollywood romance is born.

But things thought long buried in the past have a nasty habit of rearing their ugly heads, and being stalked and threatened by a manic drug dealer is not something either Evan or Mark envisaged in their future together. Will Hollywood magic be enough to keep them safe or will Evan’s bad-boy reputation tear them apart?

The Vampire and the G.I.

Here is the blurb for The Vampire and the G.I. - a new and very sexy Vampire tale...

A future world where vampires are an accepted part of society is not a world that war veteran Cole Everett finds acceptable, until...

The Middle East War is finally over and veteran, Cole Everett, is trying to build a new life in Los Angeles and reconnect with his cousin, Sean Martin, a private investigator. His hopes stall when he learns that Sean's mate, Arturo, is a vampire.

Taking a job as a security guard for a high-tech company, Cole becomes suspicious when all is not what it seems with so-called 'government contracts.

Celebrating a re-release!

After the sad demise of Wilde City Press, The Vampire and the P.I. was looking for a home. We found it with MLR Press. Publisher Lara Baumbach and Senior Editor Kris Jacen most graciously accepted it without hesitation - Hooray!
So to celebrate all comments will be entered for a free copy of the ebook - name your format, and please leave your email addy so I can send the copy should you win.

The Vampire and the P.I.

When Sean Martin was shot in the hip he thought his days in law enforcement were over. Leaving the force he opened up his own private investigative business, and for a while enjoyed success until a homophobic ex-colleague spread a story about Sean assaulting an underage boy, the son of an influential congressman.


Overnight, Sean's business tanked, leaving him broke and with zero clients. Then Master Vampire, Rafael Barrantes, hires him to find the murderer of Julian Hunter, a young male escort. Sean isn't crazy about working for a vampire--but all that changes when he meets Arturo Menendez, Rafael's private secretary who immediately tries, and succeeds in seducing Sean. In between bouts of the most amazing sex Sean has ever had, he discovers that the facts surrounding Julian's murder have been swept under the carpet.

In the process of his investigation Sean is beaten, kidnapped by a bad cop, and bitten by a rogue vampire. With the odds stacked against him, can he possibly ever solve the mystery of Julian's murder, and can Arturo, even with his vampire powers, save Sean from a grisly death?

Valentine's Day Giveaway!

It's almost here - the day of loving the one you love even more - if that's possible.
If you're single and don't have a date for Valentine's Day, don't despair. Sometimes Fate has a way of fixing that - just as Kyle Ballantine discovered when he went on a blind date as a favor to a friend.
See? One good turn deserves another...

A Mate for Valentine's Day

Kyle Ballantine is not looking forward to Valentine’s Day. Even though he’s been invited to a party, he feels intimidated as he’ll have to go on his own. He’s been dateless for the past six months, so when his best friend Paul asks him to go on an online date with a man he’d arranged to meet but now can’t because of a family commitment, Kyle figures he has nothing to lose but time.

Meeting someone as gorgeous as Erik Kelemen was not what Kyle expected, nor the whirlwind romance that follows. Kyle and Erik seem like the perfect match, but there’s something different about Erik, something Kyle can’t quite put his finger on—until a stranger arrives at Kyle’s apartment with a revelation that has him questioning the man’s sanity.

But if the stranger is telling the truth, then Kyle and Erik’s future together is doomed, along with Kyle’s dream of finding that perfect, but elusive, Valentine.

First New Release of 2017

TRUST ME is the story of a young man, Scott Riley, who is violated by an older, much bigger man in the workplace. His story is not unique, even though there are many of the mindset that this couldn't really happen to a man. Sadly, it does, and the shame and humiliation that goes with it, is hard to overcome. There are counseling organizations to help, but what Scott dreads most is that if he seeks that kind of help, there may be a chance his parents would find out Scott loves his parents too much to have them share in his humiliation.

Blurb:


Scott Riley is living with a terrible secret — one he dares not share with his family or friends. Who can he turn to… who can he trust? 
After losing his job because of one man’s actions and lies, Scott Riley is desperately seeking employment or he will have to give up his car and his apartment, perhaps even return home. Being the victim of rape, he feels shame, humiliation and a deep seated anger that he cannot bring his attacker to justice because of what he thinks it might do to his parents. Rather than have them live with the knowledge of what happened to their only son, he does everything in his power to spare them, even at a cost to his own happiness. 

When Ross Nelson offers Scott a position in his software company, Scott feels that this change in his luck may prove to be the turning point where he can put his painful memories behind him. Although aware of the obstacles inherent in an office romance, Scott and Ross soon find themselves irresistibly drawn to one another. But Scott’s nemesis refuses to stop tormenting him with texts and phone messages, some obscene, others that contain threats and derision.Can their love for each other overcome the ravings of a deranged stalker, or will they be torn apart by the clear and present danger this man represents?

Highland Hearts - a paranormal romance

Callum Robertson has inherited his grandfather’s mansion in northern Scotland, but the house comes with a history he knew nothing about—should he be thrilled, or feel threatened as the house seems to lure him in?
 

When Callum Robertson first sees the old Scottish country mansion his grandfather bequeathed him, his immediate instinct is to sell the antiquated pile for whatever he can get for it—admittedly not much in a downturned market. Then he meets Craig MacPherson, a local farmer with auburn curls and sparkling gray eyes, and suddenly the gloomy old house doesn’t look quite the white elephant it first appeared to be.
 

Craig tells Callum that it’s rumored the house is haunted but by what or whom no one seems to know. Books flying off shelves then being mysteriously replaced give Callum pause to reconsider his rejection of the idea of an actual ghost haunting the place. When he finds a journal relating to the history of his family, he is, by turn, intrigued then fascinated as the saga unfolds through the writings of his ancestors.
 

An encounter with what he feels must be the spirit of his great-great-great-uncle Alistair makes him change his mind not only about selling the house, but also about his future with Craig.

Winter Kills/Seasons of Murder



Winter Kills


Simon Harris is down on his luck in New York City after a show he’d auditioned for and won a place in folds, during rehearsals. Working as a stripper in a seedy club is not his idea of Broadway, but it keeps the wolf from the door – even if it is the door of a homeless shelter.


When one of the strippers is murdered and his body found in a dumpster, Simon is questioned by handsome detective Tom Holt, and his partner Brenda Brennigan. Both Tom and Simon feel the pull of sexual attraction, and when Tom finds out that Simon is sleeping in a homeless shelter, he offers him a room in his apartment until he gets back on his feet. It isn’t long before they are sharing more than just kitchen duties.

During his investigation, Tom discovers that the murdered stripper, Andy Summers, was being paid large sums of money by an older man, Al Cohen. Al tells Tom that he blames Andy’s death on the club owner Frank Costello,  but Tom isn’t convinced especially when he’s told that Frank had the hots for Andy and considered him his best dancer.

When another stripper is brutally attacked and left for dead in a dumpster, Tom fears for Simon’s safety – a fear that is borne out when Simon is held hostage by the murderer during a face-off with the police and a SWAT team.

Can Tom reach Simon in time before the murderer adds him to his list of victims?
