A match as perfect as cold nights and cozy fireside heat. 

Gentle giant Matt Haskell and urbane teacher Mikah Cerullo are as opposite as the Teton Mountains and downtown Manhattan.  

Hardworking organic farmer Matt has little time to think about love, but when Mikah, a sexy and snarky New Yorker, arrives at his farm to buy a Christmas tree for the family’s Jackson Hole mansion, the attraction is immediate for both of them, and they agree to share a cozy cabin in the Idaho woods. The clock is ticking on their holiday fling, since Mikah is due to take a teaching position back in the city, but as the holiday magic envelops them, they wonder if their budding romance might withstand their differences.

Bad Influence

Bad in Baltimore | Book Four

A Bad in Baltimore Story
Bad in Baltimore: Book Four

Can a future be built from pieces of a broken past?

Jordan Barnett is dead, killed as much by the rejection of his first love at his moment of greatest need as by his ultraconservative parents’ effort to deprogram the gay away.

In his place is Silver, a streetwise survivor who’s spent the last three years becoming untouchable… except to those willing to pay for the privilege. He’s determined not to let betrayal find him again, and that means never forging bonds that can be broken.

No matter how hard he tried, Zebadiah Harris couldn’t outrun his guilt over abandoning his young lover—not even by leaving the country. Now, almost the moment he sets foot back in Baltimore, he discovers Silver on a street corner in a bad part of town. His effort to make amends lands them both in jail, where Silver plans a seductive form of vengeance. But using a heart as a stepping-stone is no way to move past the one man he can’t forgive, let alone forget….

Seguito di Il segreto del dottore
Copper Point Medical: Libro Due

Il  peggior partito dell’ospedale e il freddo direttore del personale si odiano… e allora perché fingono di stare insieme?

Il dottor Owen Gagnon e il direttore delle Risorse Umane, Erin Andreas, sono noti per i loro scontri accesi in corsia. Non è quindi difficile immaginare la sorpresa della città quando Erin offre un’ingente somma di denaro per vincere un appuntamento con Owen all’asta degli scapoli dell’ospedale… e il dottore dal canto suo alza la posta in gioco insistendo che Erin si trasferisca da lui.

Copper Point non avrà idea di cosa stia succedendo, ma nemmeno Erin e Owen ne sono tanto sicuri. Il gesto di Erin voleva essere un modo per esprimere interesse nei confronti del dottore, ma Owen sospetta un secondo fine: crede che Erin voglia approfittare di lui per sfuggire al padre dispotico.

Quando il direttore del personale si ritrova immischiato in una spiacevole indagine interna, Owen si mette in testa di aiutarlo e di essere l’eroe che l’altro non ha mai avuto. Erin, dal canto suo, preferisce spendere le proprie energie cercando di salvare il dottore dalle tenebre di un passato che l’uomo non vuole raccontare.

La loro relazione sarà anche finta, ma i sentimenti che provano sono reali. Tuttavia, quel legame non potrà durare se non riusciranno a mettere a tacere i demoni che li perseguitano. Per farlo non gli basterà lavorare insieme: dovranno avere fiducia l’uno nell’altro per guarire il proprio cuore.

415 Ink: Book Three

From the moment SFPD Detective Ruan Nicholls meets Ivo Rogers, he knows the tattoo artist is going to bring chaos to his neat, orderly life. A hellion down to the bone, Ivo is someone Ruan not only doesn’t understand, he’s not even sure he needs to. Everything about Ivo is vibrant, brash, cocky, and arrogant, and Ruan wants no part of him.

Or at least that’s the lie he tells himself when he damps down his desire for the social wild child life tosses into his path.

For Ivo Rogers, life revolves around two things—his family and 415 Ink, the tattoo shop he co-owns with his four brothers. His family might be stitched together by their battle scars from growing up in foster care, but their brotherhood is tight—and strong enough to hold Ivo together during the times when he falls apart.

Now Ivo faces a new challenge when he falls for a cop with an old-school mentality on how a man looks and acts. Ruan is the promise of a life Ivo thought he’d never have, but their clashing perspectives threaten any chance of a relationship. Being the family’s hellion makes it easy to be misunderstood, yet Ivo has faith Ruan will not only embrace who he is but love him as well.

A Coastal Carolina Novel

The first step is the hardest. After a scandal, New York political reporter Reed Barfield is lying low at the North Carolina coast, writing a story about the seafood industry. But it’s the harbor pilots on the Cape Fear River who capture his interest—men who jump across ten feet of open ocean to grab a rope ladder and guide huge container ships into port. Men like sexy but prickly Justin Vance. 

After surviving an abusive childhood and a tour in the Navy, Justin isn’t fazed by his dangerous job—it’s certainly easier to face than Reed’s annoying questions. Justin isn’t out at work, and he doesn’t need Reed digging into his personal life or his past. 

But Reed’s no stranger to using his considerable charm to get what he wants, and as he wears Justin down, they realize they have a lot in common—and that they like spending time together. Moving beyond that, though, will mean Justin confessing his sexuality and learning to trust Reed with his secrets—if Reed even decides to stay. Both men want a future together, but can they find the courage to take the first step?

Saving lives never used to be this complicated.

Gavin Montgomery does what’s expected of him by his wealthy and powerful family—look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves. When a friend takes a leap off a bridge, Gavin tries to save him, only to fall in with him. At least at the bottom of the river he won’t feel like such a disappointment to his family. But he’s pulled from the water by a man with an iron grip, a sexy mouth, and a chip on his shoulder the size of the national deficit.

Jamie Donnigan likes his life the way it is—though he could have done without losing his father and giving up smoking. But at least he’s managed to avoid his own ball and chain as he’s watched all his friends pair off. When Montgomery fame turns a simple rescue into a media circus, Jamie decides if he’s being punished for his good deed, he might as well treat himself to a hot and sweaty good time. It’s not like the elegant and charming Gavin is going to lure Jamie away from his bachelor lifestyle. Nobody’s that charming. Not even a Montgomery….

Luca ha trascorso tutta l’infanzia con James, il ragazzo d’oro dell’alta società californiana, così accecato dalla sua bellezza da non notare il pacato e tenebroso fascino del fratello maggiore, Dylan.

Ma ora Luca è tornato, e il suo nuovo charme sembra essere in grado di far dubitare James della sua eterosessualità, tanto da mettere a rischio il fidanzamento dell’uomo con una ricca e potente donna d’affari. La palese attrazione tra i due fa sì che Dylan si decida a fare la sua mossa: perché mentre Luca sognava James, Dylan sognava Luca. Quando Luca si trova incastrato in una disputa tra fratelli e viene addirittura accusato di spionaggio culinario, si prepara a cestinare il suo sogno d’amore, ma non sa che proprio Dylan potrebbe essere la chiave per realizzare i suoi sogni.
