THIRDS: Book Seven

Life for Dexter J. Daley has never been easy, but he’s always found a way to pick himself back up with a smile on his face. Taken from his home and the arms of Sloane Brodie, his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, Dex finds himself in a situation as mysterious and lethal as the Therian interrogating him. Dex learns what he’s secretly believed all along: his parents’ death wasn’t an accident.

Discovering the whole truth about John and Gina Daley’s homicide sets off a series of events that will change Dex and Sloane’s life forever. As buried secrets rise to the surface and new truths are revealed, Dex and Sloane’s love for each other is put to the test, with more than their relationship on the line. If traversing the waters of murder and secret government agencies wasn’t enough, something inexplicable has been happening to Dex—and nothing will ever be the same.

Locke and Keyes Agency: Book One

Former Army Ranger turned government assassin Álvaro Montero and CIA Officer Caiden Cardosa crossed paths two years ago in Vienna, where their encounter ended less than amicably—despite the explosive sexual chemistry between them. 

Now Caiden is riding a desk at Langley after his cover is blown. And Álvaro—who was “killed”—has a new identity and purpose as Delta/D, an operative for the Locke and Keyes Agency, under the leadership of the mysterious Alpha Orion.

When D and Caiden team up in a deadly black ops mission, the urge to kill each other will have to take a back seat to the desire for revenge against the man who betrayed them both. Surviving the mission won’t be easy. Resisting the passion between them—that might be impossible.

Serie Marshals, Libro 3

Miro Jones sta vivendo la vita dei suoi sogni: ha un lavoro appassionante e gratificante come vicesceriffo federale, una bella casa alla periferia di Chicago, una splendida famiglia adottiva e soprattutto ha l’uomo che ha catturato il suo cuore, Ian Doyle. Il problema è che Ian non è solo uno sceriffo: è anche un soldato, e questo lo costringe ad assentarsi spesso e all’improvviso, gettando così un’ombra su quella che per Miro potrebbe essere una vita perfetta.

Senza Ian, la casa e il lavoro non sono gli stessi, e Miro deve fronteggiare le sue paure da solo: mantenere la calma in ufficio, sopravvivere a minacce provenienti dal passato e andare avanti tutti i giorni senza la presenza rassicurante di Ian al suo fianco. La sua vita sembra essere a un punto morto, e forse per sbloccarla dovrà prendere una decisione drastica. Ma cosa comporterebbe quello per lui e Ian? Le scelte che si prospettano a Miro sono difficili, ma a volte l’unico modo per trovare scampo non è sciogliere il nodo, ma tagliarlo.

That man is Cole McGinnis.

Now he’s back in the dark world of murder and intrigue where every bullet appears to have his name on it and every answer he digs up seems to only create more questions. Hired by the dead woman’s husband, McGinnis has to figure out who is behind the crime spree.
