Codename: Winger One

Theo Reese is just an average high school student with a passion for hockey and an uncanny talent when it comes to computers… at least on the surface.

What his teammates, fellow students, and even his boyfriend don’t realize is that Theo leads a double life. When he’s not putting up his facade of normal, Theo is working as an agent for Tactical Operational Support, where his technical genius is more than just a hobby. At sixteen he is responsible for helping agents in the field and keeping the TOS network secure.

It’s a secret he has to keep—from everyone.

But secrecy becomes even harder when a hacker compromises the system TOS uses to track its agents and Theo’s dad goes missing. Theo must find him and stop the hacker, which means leaving the comfort of his computer screen and venturing into a very real and very deadly world.

And if that’s not enough to deal with, all the secrecy is really putting a strain on Theo’s love life.

Fortsetzung zu Dirty Kiss

Ein Titel der Ein Cole-McGinnis-Krimi Serie

Kim Jae-Min zu lieben ist nicht immer leicht: Jae fürchtet sich davor, als offen schwuler Mann zu leben, während der zum Privatdetektiv gewordene ehemalige Polizist Cole McGinnis es nicht anders kennt. Auch wenn er Jaes Sorgen versteht. Koreaner aus traditionellen Familien sind nicht schwul – zumindest nicht dort, wo man sie sehen kann.

Doch Cole muss sich auch auf anderes als die Probleme seines Freundes konzentrieren. Er hat einen Auftrag. Als die Sängerin Scarlet ihn darum bittet, Park Dae-Hoon zu finden, einen schwulen Koreaner, der seit beinahe zwei Jahrzehnten verschwunden ist, versinkt Cole in der verworrenen Welt reicher koreanischer Familien, in denen Verpflichtungen und Politik dazu führen, dass persönliches Glück für den Erhalt des Geschäftsimperiums geopfert wird. Bald häufen sich scheinbar zusammenhanglos die Leichen an. Mit jedem Schritt zur Aufklärung von Dae-Hoons Schicksal segnet eine weitere Person das Zeitliche – und ein geliebter Mensch könnte als Nächstes auf der Liste des Mörders stehen.

Haven Investigations: Book Four

After being rescued by Ollie, Kade continues to suffer the aftermath of his ordeal, both physically and psychologically. Not knowing how else to clear his head, he pours his energy into Ollie—the love of his life—and Haven Investigations, but neither Ollie nor Kade can continue to ignore what they learned from their last case: Ollie’s brother, Nathan, might have betrayed Kade.

As they dig into Ollie’s past, secrets are revealed. Was Nathan’s death a suicide? Were Ollie’s parents much more than they seemed? Is someone out to kill Ollie, or is it Kade’s past coming back to haunt them again?

Amidst questions and uncertainties, one thing is clear: after everything they have been through together, Kade and Ollie have never been more in love and they want to get married. But first, they’ll have to deal with the continued threat of Kade’s past, the emotional wounds Kade fears are drowning him, and the possibility that everything Ollie believed about his family was a lie. A beautiful happily ever after awaits them—as long as they can survive long enough to make it to the altar.

Suite de Grandeur et décadence

THIRDS, tome 5

Ash Keeler, l’agent Défense le plus féroce du THIRDS au sein de l’Unité Destructive Delta, est grossier et a mauvais caractère, mais son approche musclée est toujours synonyme de résultats, comme le démontre sa récente infiltration au sein de la Coalition. Grâce à ses compétences et avec l’aide de son équipe, il met fin aux agissements du groupe extrémiste meurtrier, non sans prendre une balle pour sauver son coéquipier Cael Maddock. En conséquence de son geste, les secrets d’Ash refont surface et il ne peut ignorer plus longtemps ce qu’il a dans le cœur.

Cael Maddock n’est pas étranger aux peines de cœur. En tant qu’Agent Recon pour Destructive Delta, il a manœuvré avec succès dans la jungle urbaine qu’est la ville de New York, glanant ses propres cicatrices en cours de route. Pourtant, rien de ce qu’il a déjà affronté ne s’est révélé un plus grand défi que le cœur d’Ash Keeler, son coéquipier soi-disant hétéro. Être amoureux n’est pas le seul danger qu’Ash et lui affrontent alors que des blessures se rouvrent et que de nouveaux secrets émergent, les forçant à s’interroger sur de vieilles loyautés.

Riley Parker: temp, twink, geek… sleuth?

Maybe Riley isn’t living up to his full potential, but being a temp executive assistant suits him. He’s never bored at work, he’s got friends who let him geek out, and he’s got a carefully crafted twink exterior… which might be getting constrictive now that he’s on the other side of thirty. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s comfortable.

It all unravels when he takes a job working for a tea-obsessed cosmetics queen, the owner of Gautier Cosmetics. During the launch party for a new product, Riley finds his boss dead under suspicious circumstances, and the homicide detective is none other than Tadeo Martin, Riley’s high school obsession who never knew he was alive.

Tad drafts Riley to get the scoop on the inner workings of Gautier, and for Riley, it’s like a drug. His natural inquisitiveness is rewarded with more and more Tad. Unfortunately, his snooping puts him in the running for two other roles: suspect and victim. The killer doesn’t care which.

Als ehemaliger NSA-Mitarbeiter hat Dayton (Day) Ingram Erfahrungen als Hacker im Dienst der nationalen Sicherheit und arbeitet jetzt als technischer Analyst für Scorpion. Er sehnt sich nach dem Außendienst, und als er einen Angriff vereitelt bekommt er seine Chance. Er ist clever, mehrsprachig und ein Technologiemagier. Aber seine Chance hat einen Haken – einen Partner, Knighton (Knight), der ein echtes Rätsel ist. Trotz zahlloser Recherchestunden kann Day nichts über den Agenten finden, nicht einmal seinen Vornamen!

Der ehemalige Marine Knight hatte sich nach dem Verlust seiner Familie am Boden einer Flasche verkrochen. Nachdem er wieder trocken ist, bekommt er eine allerletzte Chance: zusammen mit Day eine terroristische Bedrohung aus Yucatàn auszuschalten. Um ohne Aufsehen zu erregen dorthin zu gelangen, machen Day und Knight eine Kreuzfahrt für Schwule mit, wo der, wenn es um seine sexuelle Orientierung geht, zutiefst verschwiegene Day und ein ebenso verschwiegener Knight als schwules Paar agieren müssen. Die Anspannung wächst, als Knight sich ausschweigt und Day sich gegen Knights unbarmherziges Verlangen nach Kontrolle sträubt.

Aber nach einer durchzechten Nacht wachen Day und Knight in einem Bett auf. Zusammen. Während sie ihrem Ziel näherkommen, müssen sie lernen, einander zu vertrauen und sich aufeinander zu verlassen. Nur so können sie das Terroristencamp infiltrieren und das Komplott gegen die technologische Infrastruktur der USA vereiteln. Nur dann können sie auf ein Leben nach der Mission hoffen.

Tramps and Thieves

Murder and Mayhem | Book Two

Murder and Mayhem: Book Two

Whoever said blood was thicker than water never stood in a pool of it.

Retiring from stealing priceless treasures seemed like a surefire way for Rook Stevens to stay on the right side of the law. The only cop in his life should have been his probably-boyfriend, Los Angeles Detective Dante Montoya, but that’s not how life—his life—is turning out. Instead, Rook ends up not only standing in a puddle of his cousin Harold’s blood but also being accused of Harold’s murder… and sleeping with Harold’s wife.

For Dante, loving the former thief means his once-normal life is now a sea of chaos, especially since Rook seems incapable of staying out of trouble—or keeping trouble from following him home. When Rook is tagged as a murder suspect by a narrow-focused West LA detective, Dante steps in to pull his lover out of the quagmire Rook’s landed in.

When the complicated investigation twists around on them, the dead begin to stack up, forcing the lovers to work together. Time isn’t on their side, and if they don’t find the killer before another murder, Dante will be visiting Rook in his prison cell—or at his grave.

Stalking Buffalo Bill

Shifter U
Dreamspun Beyond | #3

A Shifter U Tale

A smitten coyote isn’t the only one stalking Buffalo Bill.

A buffalo walks into a cafe. Sounds like the start of a bad joke, but for coyote shifter Donnie Granger, it’s the beginning of an obsession. Donnie is a little hyperactive and a lot distractible, except when it comes to William. He finally works up the nerve to approach William but is interrupted by a couple of violent humans.

While William—don’t call me Bill—is currently a professor, he once worked undercover against an international weapons-trafficking ring. Before he can settle into obscurity, he must find out who leaked his location and eliminate the thugs. He tries keeping his distance to protect Donnie, but the wily coyote won’t stay away.

It’ll take both Donnie’s skills as a stalker—er, hunter—and William’s super-spy expertise to neutralize the threat so they can discover if an excitable coyote and a placid-until-pissed buffalo have a future together.

Cloister Witte is a man with a dark past and a cute dog. He’s happy to talk about the dog all day, but after growing up in the shadow of a missing brother, a deadbeat dad, and a criminal stepfather, he’d rather leave the past back in Montana. These days he’s a K-9 officer in the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and pays a tithe to his ghosts by doing what no one was able to do for his brother—find the missing and bring them home.

He’s good at solving difficult mysteries. The dog is even better. 

This time the missing person is a ten-year-old boy who walked into the woods in the middle of the night and didn’t come back. With the antagonistic help of distractingly handsome FBI agent Javi Merlo, it quickly becomes clear that Drew Hartley didn’t run away. He was taken, and the evidence implies he’s not the kidnapper’s first victim. As the search intensifies, old grudges and tragedies are pulled into the light of day. But with each clue they uncover, it looks less and less likely that Drew will be found alive.

But the Knights are growing bolder, and a new threat has resurfaced after being buried in the ocean for decades.

As a bird shifter, he knows his duty is to protect the scroll, but he wants nothing to do with the war. He leads a quiet life and wants to keep it that way. But when agents come knocking on his door, he finds it difficult to resist the charms of Agent Pan, especially since this isn’t their first meeting.

Two years earlier they spent a passionate weekend together, neither aware of the other’s true identity. Viktor never really got over Pan. Now with sexual tension at its peak, they must learn to trust each other and work as a team to protect not only their loved ones, but every shifter in the world.

Fish Out of Water | Book Two

Fish Out of Water: Book Two

They must work together to stop a psychopath—and save each other. 

Two months ago Jackson Rivers got shot while trying to save Ellery Cramer’s life. Not only is Jackson still suffering from his wounds, the triggerman remains at large—and the body count is mounting.

Jackson and Ellery have been trying to track down Tim Owens since Jackson got out of the hospital, but Owens’s time as a member of the department makes the DA reluctant to turn over any stones. When Owens starts going after people Jackson knows, Ellery’s instincts hit red alert. Hurt in a scuffle with drug-dealing squatters and trying damned hard not to grieve for a childhood spent in hell, Jackson is weak and vulnerable when Owens strikes.

Jackson gets away, but the fallout from the encounter might kill him. It’s not doing Ellery any favors either. When a police detective is abducted—and Jackson and Ellery hold the key to finding her—Ellery finds out exactly what he’s made of. He’s not the corporate shark who believes in winning at all costs; he’s the frightened lover trying to keep the man he cares for from self-destructing in his own valor.
