A Stud Games Novel

Surveillance, seduction, and extra-dirty politics.

Christian Chatsworth-Brandeis has a problem. A huge one. The US senator he works for has run away with his latest mistress on the eve of a make-or-break fundraising event, and it’s up to him to cover his irresponsible boss’s tracks.

Stone Jackson, Senator Lacey’s new bodyguard, looks enough like him that, with some extensive grooming, he might pass for the senator. Christian and Stone hatch a plan to substitute Stone for the senator, but Miami madness and the incendiary heat between them are throwing obstacles in their way. It’s a race to find the senator and pull off the con of the century before the attraction between them spins completely out of control.

Previously published by Dreamspinner Press as Ace in the Hole by Ava Drake, July 2016.

Martin Dance knows better than to get involved with a rent boy. After all, he’s been around the block a few times. And a few times after that. Still, there’s something about Johnny Cotton that catches his eye. And his heart.

When Johnny and his best friend find themselves in over their heads with the woman who owns them lock, stock, and barrel, Martin knows he has to step in.

Martin and his old buddy, Charlie Bass, might be retired from the Firm, but they still know how to manage a gunfight. And how to go underground with a couple of male hookers less than half their age. Just for the purpose of keeping them safe, you understand. No funny business intended.

Odd, though, how funny business tends to creep in when you least expect it.

It’s sort of like love that way, Martin decides. One minute you’re minding your own business, the next minute you’re in a world of hurt. Or, if you’re lucky, a world of happy.

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.

McGinnis Investigations: Book One

There are eight million stories in the City of Angels but only one man can stumble upon the body of a former client while being chased by a pair of Dobermans and a deranged psycho dressed as a sheep.

That man is Cole McGinnis.

Since his last life-threatening case years ago, McGinnis has married the love of his life, Jae-Min Kim, consulted for the LAPD, and investigated cases as a private detective for hire. Yet nothing could have prepared him for the shocking discovery of a dead, grandmotherly woman at his feet and the cascade of murders that follows, even if he should have been used to it by now.

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. As if the twisted case of a murdered grandmother isn’t complicated enough, Death is knocking on his door, and each time it opens, Death is wearing a new face, leaving McGinnis to wonder who he can actually trust.

A Novel of Plenty, California

As one of the top trauma surgeons in Plenty’s ER, Dr. Taggart Hayes knows how to fix broken things—fractured legs, ruptured spleens, allergies, and traumatic brain injuries. He can put them back together good as new. 

A broken heart, though? That’s a bit trickier. Especially when it’s his own. 

When Tag swipes on the photo of the hot man in the dating app, he just wants a distraction from the wreck that used to be his life. A one-night stand with a safely inappropriate stranger, no names, no feelings, and no complications. 

But the headless photo on the app belongs to a man who isn’t so easy to forget the next day... or the next week. And it becomes increasingly clear that Bass is neither safe nor uncomplicated. Drawn into the dark, criminal underworld his lover inhabits, Tag has to decide if the cure for his broken heart is worse than the disease.

Sequel to Truth Will Out

Many consider Naomi Teedle the village witch. Most people avoid her except when they have need of her herbs and potions. She lives alone on the outskirts of Merrychurch, and that’s fine by everyone—old Mrs. Teedle is not the most pleasant of people. But when she is found murdered, her mouth bulging with her own herbs and roots, suddenly no one has a bad word to say about her.

Jonathon de Mountford is adjusting to life up at the manor house, but it’s not a solitary life: pub landlord Mike Tattersall sees to that. Jonathon is both horrified to learn of the recent murder and confused by the sudden reversal of public opinion. Surely someone in the village had reason to want her dead? He and Mike decide it’s time for them to step in and “help” the local police with their investigation. Only problem is, their sleuthing uncovers more than one suspect—and the list is getting longer….

Jackson Rivers has always bucked the rules—and bucking the rules of recovery is no exception. Now that he and Ellery are starting their own law firm, there’s no reason he can’t rush into trouble and take the same risks as always, right?

Maybe not. Their first case is a doozy, involving porn stars, drug empires, and daddy issues, and their client, Henry Worrall, wants to be an active participant in his own defense. As Henry and Jackson fight the bad guys and each other to find out who dumped the porn star in the trash can, Jackson must reexamine his assumptions that four months of rest and a few good conversations have made him all better inside. 

Jackson keeps crashing his bicycle of self-care and a successful relationship, and Ellery wonders what’s going to give out first—Jackson’s health or Ellery’s patience. Jackson’s body hasn’t forgiven him for past crimes. Can Ellery forgive him for his current sins? And can they keep Henry from going to jail for sleeping with the wrong guy at the wrong time?

Being a fish out of water is tough—but if you give a fish a bicycle, how’s he going to swim?

Nous reformons le groupe.

À ces quatre mots, un frisson glacé dévala le long de la colonne vertébrale de Miki St John, surtout quand ils émanaient avec une ferveur presque religieuse de son frère en tout, sauf par le sang, Damien Mitchell. Cependant, ces mots n’étaient rien, comparés à ce qu’il ajouta.

Et nous partons en tournée.

Quand Crossroads Gin prend la route, Damien espère que cela les rapprochera. Il y a quelque chose de magique dans le fait d’être en tournée, surtout lorsque vous voyagez dans une fourgonnette où il n’y a pas de roadies, de gérants ou d’amants pour servir de tampon. Le groupe est déjà proche, mais Damien sait qu’ils peuvent l’être davantage… des sortes de frères, pas uniquement liés par des liens familiaux, mais aussi par leur intense amour de la musique.

Tandis qu’ils voyagent d’un concert à l’autre, le groupe est hanté par des erreurs du passé et des démons personnels, mais ils continuent. Pour Miki, Damie, Forest et Rafe, la scène est l’endroit où ils prennent véritablement vie et la musique qu’ils jouent est aussi importante pour eux que l’air qu’ils respirent.

Mais les démons et les problèmes ne les laisseront pas tranquilles, au cours des kilomètres parcourus, le groupe fera face à ses plus grands défis : dépasser ses défauts les plus profonds et ne pas s’entre-tuer les uns les autres.

Benvenuti al Dim Sum Asylum, il Manicomio dei Dim Sum, in una San Francisco dove un caso è noioso e banale quando la polizia deve inseguire una statuetta alta mezzo metro con degli impressionanti baffi alla Fu Manchu, che è scomparsa da un santuario e se ne corre in giro per Chinatown lasciandosi dietro una scia di magia sessuale e caos.

Roku MacCormick, ispettore della divisione Crimini Arcani di Chinatown, deve affrontare una quantità di sfide che vanno ben al di là del suo retaggio umano-faerie, dei draghi ringhianti che stanno a guardia dei portali di C-Town e dell’esplosione di una fabbrica di noodle. Infatti, oltre alle interferenze di una famiglia mafiosa che vuole tenere a distanza e a un serial killer esperto di incantesimi che deve assolutamente trovare, dopo un caso andato a rotoli, a Roku tocca accollarsi Trent Leonard, un nuovo partner di cui non si può ancora fidare.

Anche se preferirebbe restarsene a casa con Bob the Cat a riempirsi di whiskey fino ad addormentarsi, ogni giorno Roku indossa distintivo e pistola, deciso a servire e proteggere la città che ama. Quando l’oscuro e sotterraneo mondo magico di Chinatown rende la sua vita un inferno e il caso su cui lavora si rivela letale, è Trent che bada a coprirgli le spalle e, a detta del suo nuovo partner, anche a guarire il suo cuore. Per Roku, però, Trent è pericoloso quanto i mostri e i criminali che hanno giurato di abbattere.

Fische auf dem Trockenen: Buch Eins

Privatdetektiv Jackson Rivers wuchs auf den rauen Straßen von Del Paso Heights auf und traut Polizisten nicht – obwohl er einer war. Als der Mann, den er als seinen Bruder betrachtet, des Mordes an einem Polizisten beschuldigt wird, bei dem es eindeutig nicht mit rechten Dingen zuging, setzt er Himmel und Hölle in Bewegung, um Kaden und seiner Familie zu helfen.

Strafverteidiger Ellery Cramer stammt aus einer reichen Familie, was ihn nicht daran hindert, sich bereits seit sechs Jahren zum straßenerfahrenen, selbstbewussten Detektiv Jackson Rivers hingezogen zu fühlen. Doch als Jackson ihn um Hilfe bei der Verteidigung von Kaden Cameron bittet, ist er bald überfordert – und das nicht nur in Bezug auf den verschlossenen, unwirschen Detektiv. Kaden wurde nicht nur ein Mord angehängt, sondern er wurde ihm von korrupten Polizisten angehängt, wobei die Verschwörung weiter reicht, als Ellery sich vorwagt – und bis in Jacksons unschöne Vergangenheit.

Bald sind beide Männer tief in das Rätsel um den in der Tankstelle ermordeten Polizisten verstrickt und befinden sich in einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um Kadens Unschuld zu beweisen. Doch abseits der Ermittlungen und der fliegenden Kugeln müssen sie mit persönlichen Komplikationen umgehen … und einer gegenseitigen Anziehungskraft, die außer Kontrolle geraten ist.

L’avvocato divorzista Clayton Reynolds è un cinico felice che crede nel duro lavoro e nelle avventure di una notte. Crede anche che essere un ottimo avvocato significhi non dover mai più tornare al miserabile parcheggio per roulotte in cui è cresciuto e che fare volontariato in un rifugio per donne maltrattate serva a placare la sua coscienza che, di tanto in tanto, viene a tormentarlo. Così, quando Nadine Graham arriva con un braccio rotto e un figlio che desidera disperatamente proteggere, Clayton non può rifiutare la sua richiesta di aiuto.

Accettare il caso significa rivolgersi all’investigatore Chiamami-Kelly-e-basta. Il che non sarebbe tanto male, se Kelly non fosse un inguaribile romantico… nonché l’uomo più sexy che lui abbia mai incontrato.

Kelly ha sempre avuto una cotta per l’inarrivabile Clayton Reynolds e acconsente ad aiutarlo, anche se è già parecchio impegnato ad accudire il figlio del fratello rimasto vedovo.

Quando il caso di Nadine si fa pericoloso, i due uomini, all’apparenza agli antipodi, sono costretti a collaborare, scoprendo così di avere moltissime cose in comune… ma risolvere il caso e salvare la vita di Nadine potrebbe costare caro a Kelly.
