Un tueur en série a pris pour cible la communauté homosexuelle, s’attaquant à eux dans les bars populaires et les parcs. Assigné à cette affaire, la nouvelle recrue Pat Saint James se sent un peu trop proche des victimes. Il est gay, mais aucun de ses collègues ne le sait. Le fait qu’on lui demande de réaliser une mission d’infiltration en se faisant passer pour un homoseuel ne manque pas d’ironie.

Pat et son collègue, Hank, passent leurs soirées dans les bars afin d’obtenir des informations sur le tueur. Parallèlement, Pat est à la recherche de l’homme parfait et jongle entre trois hommes, espérant trouver le partenaire idéal. Il a rencontré Bill dans un bar, Dean est un ami de longue date… et autre ironie du sort : Hank, son partenaire, est également gay et sur la liste de ses prétendants.

Comme le tueur continue à sévir, étranglant et violant ses victimes, Pat doit se concentrer sur son travail en espérant que sa vie personnelle survive à ce train de vie complètement dingue. Mais quand ses espoirs de trouver le bonheur et l’enquête se chevauchent, Pat pourrait bien foncer droit vers les problèmes.

Seventeen years ago, Forge Reynolds fell in love… and had his heart broken. When Staff Sergeant Gage Livingston was brought into Forge’s Army field hospital, temporarily paralyzed, Forge sat with him, read his letters, answered his mail, and formed a connection he thought would last. But Gage was sent home, Forge transferred to a new post, and his letters to Gage went unanswered. 

Now in the middle of a bitter divorce, Forge is sick and tired of his husband’s manipulation. He's almost ready to make any sacrifice to get closure—then he finds Granger murdered execution-style in their home. Forge had no idea about Granger’s illicit activities, but the killers don’t believe that. They think Forge has something they want, and they’re coming after him. 

When Forge’s lawyer arranges for professional protection, the last face Forge expects to see is Gage’s. Can he even contemplate a second chance for them after almost two decades, or will hoping only lead to more heartache? Before they can explore the possibilities, they must figure out what information Granger had—that others are willing to kill for—or that possible heartache could become a certainty.

Kindred Truths

The Shifters | Book Twelve

The Shifters: Book Twelve

Agent Poe loves being part of the Agency—an organization devoted to protecting shape-shifters—and he especially loves his mate of only a couple of months, Nordik, the nigh immortal master bear shifter. He has the best of both worlds—the man he loves and the job he loves. But when Nordik reveals he’s ready to rejoin society and accompany Poe on his missions, Poe must take the next step and make them a full partnership.

After the Agency intercepts a message from Arcas, the leader of the Knights of the Dawn—a cult bent on the annihilation of shifters—meant for his followers, their job gets a whole lot harder. The Knights don’t bother keeping their activities hidden anymore, stretching the Agency’s resources thinner than ever.

After a near-fatal mission almost costs Poe his life, Nordik insists on a break for both of them. They visit Poe’s family in Ireland and learn that true danger lies not without, but within. There’s no greater betrayal than that of a loved one.

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.

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.

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.

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.
