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.

Buch 1 in der Serie – Day und Knight

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.

Ein gemeinsames Leben.

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.

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.

Digging Up Bones: Book One

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.

Agent Pan has spent most of his adult life protecting shape-shifters from the Knights—an organization bent on their annihilation—and keeping the secret war in the shadows where it belongs. But the Knights are growing bolder, and a new threat has resurfaced after being buried in the ocean for decades.

An ancient scroll, a key to a devastating weapon, is now in the hands of a recalcitrant Russian hawk shifter named Viktor. 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.

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.

La sua missione attuale prevede che si avvicini a Riley Drapeau, un trafficante di esseri umani messo all’angolo dall’FBI e diventato un informatore. Connor deve spremerlo per raccogliere prove che riguardano la sua organizzazione, ma nel farlo scopre un Riley del tutto diverso da quello che si aspettava.

Colto alla sprovvista, Connor si appoggia a Lucas, il suo contatto col mondo esterno, ma viene travolto da Riley e dal tentativo dell’uomo di ripulire il proprio nome e provare che i suoi soci hanno fabbricato prove contro di lui.

Immerso nel buio mondo dei traffici illegali, Connor trova più facile credere a Riley che a quello che dice l’FBI, soprattutto quando c’è una fuga di notizie all’interno del Bureau. La scelta che Connor deve affrontare diventa ancora più difficile quando Lucas ammette i suoi sentimenti per lui e gli promette una vita al sicuro, lontano dai pericoli. Ma Connor non può negare che l’unico uomo con cui vuole stare è Riley. Ed è costretto a chiedersi se la sua dipendenza dal pericolo lo possa portare ad amare un criminale.
