Malcolm Tate hung up his flogger when his submissive sought out another Dom and landed in the hands of a serial killer. Convinced his lack of dominance sent his sub away, Mal has spent two years blaming himself for what happened. But when his best friend finally convinces him to go back to the local dungeon, Mal’s grateful. Especially when he wins beautiful, submissive, firmly closeted Kyle Bingham in a charity slave auction.

College grad Kyle hasn’t earned enough to move out of the loft his conservative, homophobic parents bought, much less to buy any of the other things still in their name. When he’s won at auction by the hot, amazing Mal, he’s shocked that anyone would want him. No one else seemed to—not his parents, his former Doms, or any of his disastrous dates.

But Mal does want him and Kyle lets his guard down, only to be … [Read More ...]

At eighteen, Ashley seems to have everything: looks, talent, and even a girlfriend. What more could a young man want? Yet something is missing, and he has to come to terms with his sexuality and the possible implications for his career in the public eye. He begins dating Chris but isn’t sure he’s head over heels in love. It’s not the knight-in-shining-armor feeling he always imagined.

When Ashley is offered a big modeling job, he leaves his university in small-town Canada for a very different life in sunny Los Angeles, California. There he meets a slightly older man who makes him feel like he’s in a storybook romance. But is Ashley ready for real love, or is it just infatuation? The world is spread out before him, at once limitless and daunting, full of endless possibilities one moment and opportunities cut short the next.

Ashley floats between certainty and confusion … [Read More ...]

Brett Malone has been working for Tampa Fire Department for over three years and the last thing he needs or wants is a rookie who can’t follow orders on a scene. He doesn’t need to be attracted to the rookie either, especially since his closet door at work is firmly welded shut.

All Evan Carmichael ever wanted to be was a fireman. He graduated top of his class at the Fire Academy, but nothing he learned there prepared him for the harsh reality of the job. Back to back shifts of one trauma call after another send him quickly to his breaking point.

Thankfully, support from his co-workers and the attention from the one fireman he thought hated him, helps him survive his first few brutal shifts. However, it’s attention of another sort that he may not survive at all.

Twenty Words to Describe My Reading

 

Recently I read an article that encouraged authors to list twenty words that describe their writing. This exercise is supposed to help an author pull what they do into focus. Thing is, I don’t believe an author is the best person to describe their writing. I should also mention much of my writing is a direct result of being pulled whole from my unconscious, kind of like Athena emerging full-blown from the brow of Zeus.

 

Describing my writing to myself would be wonderfully indulgent, and probably not even close to what I really want to know. I’m far more interested in how readers would describe it.

Life hasn’t been good to Francis Murphy. He’s survived twenty-one years of homelessness by hooking and taking handouts where he can find them. When the local shelter is vandalized, he’s forced to seek food at the Grace and Light Church, where he runs into the pastor’s son, Randy.

Randy Wright believes the best in others. He’s immediately drawn to Francis, even though Francis is hardened and wary. When Francis is attacked by one of his johns, Randy and his family take him in and offer him temporary work. Randy always thought he was straight, but something about Francis has him yearning for more than just friendship, and realizing he might be bisexual.

Francis is attracted to Randy too, and Randy and his parents say they’ve always believed in gay rights. But talk is cheap. What are the odds that these Christian parents will remain open-minded when it’s their own son … [Read More ...]

Edge of Control

Edge of Control

Riordan is a ruthless warrior whose foes tremble before him in his drowned and ruined world. The last thing he wants to do is go undercover as a weakling to spy on his clan’s enemies. Much less with Eiryn – a fierce warrior in her own right and the only woman Riordan’s never been able to forget. He knows that a single touch will throw them straight back into that same old uncontrollable fire. But this time, he might just let them burn.

Eiryn has been betrayed too many times. An escape into a dangerous mission where she can pretend to be the soft, biddable female she’s not seems like the perfect solution.

At the beginning of this book it is pure heartbreaking sorrow.  Mira is so close to true death that after all she has been through it seems almost cruel to bring her back, yet to lose her is to lose Stryker her mate.  But she is so broken in her mind that she doesn’t know who the people are that surround her.  As they all fight for her sanity, all she sees is the torture … [Read More ...]

Ian and Bull Westerfield have spent years loving each other in all the ways the law said they shouldn’t. When they come across a drifter looking for work, the brothers invite the stranger into their home, and eventually, to their bed.

Their love will be put to the test—a piece of land or the safety of each other?

Corbin’s Bend is perfect for Marilyn and Lizzy Mayfield. They’re surrounded by friends and peace. Except for when Calbert Jolly comes around. From the moment they met, Lizzy and Calbert had fought with one another. Usually able to get along with anyone, no matter how contrary, Calbert is a thorn in Lizzy’s side.

When she’s asked to manage a committee Calbert’s in charge of, sparks fly. It’s up to her wife Marilyn and his wife Jenna to bring the two together. One dinner. Two intense adversaries. By the end of the night, they will either be on working terms, or have killed one another.

When all’s said and done, sometimes wrongs can turn out all right on their own, and sometimes they have to be righted.

Corbin’s Bend Vignettes are shorter stories, chronicling the lives of secondary characters we don’t see as much of. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Angela_s PonderingsTAG

A desperate dragon. A lonely necromancer. A marriage neither wants.

When he is summoned to the royal castle, Rochus anticipates nothing more than a particularly difficult assignment. The bothersome journey is almost made worthwhile when he is propositioned by a young, beautiful dragon, Tilo, who seems untroubled by the fact that Rochus is a necromancer.

When Rochus arrives at the castle he is ordered to marry the very same dragon he spent the night with. Though Rochus would rather sign papers and return home, he is helpless against Tilo’s pleas for help, even if it means spending more time around a man he is desperately drawn to but who doesn’t seem to want him.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16April's Showering Words

In this business, it gets hot under the spotlight…

Once a teen idol, Gabby Randall now spends her time behind the camera. With her show Danse Macabre scripted and a greenlit for a popular streaming site, she has everything she wants…except her star. Deadlines are looming and she’s desperate to cast the role of a modern-day, motorcycle-riding Grim Reaper.

WILD AT HEART

Faith Mendes needs to get her life in order and get a job–yesterday. Thankfully, the live-in house-keeper position at the King brothers’ ranch is up for grabs. Problem is, she’d be working with her old childhood crush, Nate King. He’s sexy, wealthy, and his Texas-sized charms are legendary…and, clearly, impossible to resist.

Nate never thought twice about his best friend’s little sister. Back then, Faith was off-limits. But now that she’s all grown up, Nate’s whole world has turned upside-down. Razor-sharp, down-to-earth, and hotter-than-heck, Faith is everything Nate has ever dreamed of in a woman…and maybe even in a wife. But Faith has loved and lost enough already to risk it all on another known bad-boy. How can Nate convince her that he is the real deal–and that he’s ready to rein it in and never look back?
