Secrets: Book Four

When a Dom invites a shy bookstore owner to live out his fantasies, more than one life will be transformed.

Words are Heath Snow’s life. He can’t remember a time when he didn’t have his nose buried in a book. He couldn’t make a living as a writer, so he did the next best thing—he bought a bookstore. But when he’s not selling books, he’s living vicariously through the characters he encounters. Real men can’t hold a candle to the hot men in his favorite genre.

The Pride display in the bookstore window may be what captured Xavier James’s attention, but the man enthusing about books interests him more. The BDSM book lying next to the cash register is a pleasant surprise, and when he draws attention to it, Heath’s flushed cheeks and bright eyes pique Xavier’s curiosity even further.

Xavier is about to learn that some things are more important than work, and Heath is about to step out of his comfort zone, into a place where fantasy and real life coexist.

Sequel to Truth Will Out
A Merrychurch Mysteries Case

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….

They never knew what hit them.

A hooker with a heart, falling for a Vice cop? This is no Hollywood movie, and if they want a happily ever after, it's not going to be easy. 

Detective Randy Michaels is back with Vice, working to help NYC crack down on its prostitution problem.

Recent events have forced Randy to question his sexuality, and a shocking encounter with Jesse plunges him into a crisis of conscience. 

Jesse didn’t think his life could get any worse. His family cut all support, his education is on hold, and he’s surviving the only way he knows—selling himself on the streets. Of all the people who could have offered him a helping hand, why did it have to be Randy? 

Two men carrying their own personal burdens: How long will it take them to realize that what they really need is each other?


Sto per fare qualcosa di straordinario che potrebbe cambiare… tutto.

Ho conosciuto Matt in seconda elementare, e da allora siamo inseparabili. Abbiamo frequentato le stesse scuole, abbiamo studiato allo stesso college. Abbiamo trovato lavoro nella stessa città e condiviso un appartamento. E quando la mia vita ha preso una svolta inaspettata, Matt era lì accanto a me. In ogni momento importante della mia vita, lui c’era. E la cosa più meravigliosa è che, dopo tutti questi anni, siamo ancora migliori amici.

Il che mi porta a questo momento, in cui tutto potrebbe finire: vorrei dirgli che lo amo, che lo amo davvero, ma ho paura di come reagirà. Devo trovare il modo giusto per farlo, perché rischio di perderlo… per sempre.

Ein befreundeter Dom aus einem anderen Club in Manchester bittet Thomas um Hilfe bei der Rettung eines misshandelten Submissiven, Peter Nicholson.

Jonathon de Mountford a décidé de se rendre au village de Merrychurch pour passer un peu de temps avec son oncle Dominic, mais son séjour commence mal quand celui-ci oublie de venir le récupérer à la gare. Quand Jonathon retrouve le corps de son oncle sans vie dans son bureau, à la suite de ce qui semble être une chute, son monde se retrouve bouleversé. D’une part, il est l’héritier du manoir. D’autre part, il n’est pas si sûr que ce soit un simple accident. Il se met en tête de prouver sa théorie avec l’aide de Mike Tattersall, propriétaire du pub local – si tant est qu’il puisse se concentrer assez longtemps sans être distrait par la beauté de cet homme.

Ensemble, ils établissent une liste – de plus en plus longue – rassemblant les personnes qui avaient une raison d’en vouloir à Dominic. Quand la situation prend un tournant inattendu, les détectives amateurs restent perplexes. Pour compliquer les choses, l’inspecteur de police qui est envoyé pour résoudre cette affaire est la dernière personne que Mike a envie de voir, surtout quand il leur demande de ne pas fourrer leur nez dans cette enquête.

Autant dresser un drap rouge devant un taureau…


Truth Will Out

Merrychurch Mysteries

A Merrychurch Mysteries Case

Jonathon de Mountford’s visit to Merrychurch village to stay with his uncle Dominic gets off to a bad start when Dominic fails to appear at the railway station. But when Jonathon finds him dead in his study, apparently as the result of a fall, everything changes. For one thing, Jonathon is the next in line to inherit the manor house. For another, he’s not so sure it was an accident, and with the help of Mike Tattersall, the owner of the village pub, Jonathon sets out to prove his theory—if he can concentrate long enough without getting distracted by the handsome Mike.

They discover an increasingly long list of people who had reason to want Dominic dead. And when events take an unexpected turn, the amateur sleuths are left bewildered. It doesn’t help that the police inspector brought in to solve the case is the last person Mike wants to see, especially when they are told to keep their noses out of police business.

In Jonathon’s case, that’s like a red rag to a bull….

La situazione economica di Jamie è un vero disastro, anche se non è colpa sua, e l’ultima persona che si aspetta d’incontrare per caso in biblioteca è un buon samaritano. Malgrado la sua iniziale diffidenza circa le vere motivazioni di Guy, Jamie capisce in fretta che il suo salvatore è un uomo buono e generoso che, dopo aver avuto fortuna nella vita, non desidera altro che aiutare qualcuno in difficoltà. Il fatto che l’uomo sia gay non è un problema visto che Jamie non è interessato… o almeno così pensa.

Guy è felice di poter aiutare Jamie e i due sembrano andare d’accordo, fino a quando la curiosità del ragazzo non trasforma la loro relazione e Guy si ritrova a guardarlo con occhi diversi. Quella che era iniziata come un’offerta d’aiuto diventa qualcosa di completamente inaspettato…


I’m about to do something huge, and it could change... everything.

I met Matt in second grade, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We went to the same schools, studied at the same college. When we both got jobs in the same town, we shared an apartment. And when my life took an unexpected turn, Matt was there for me. Every milestone in my life, he was there to share it. And what’s really amazing? After all these years, we’re still the best of friends.

Which brings me to this fragile, heart-stopping moment: I want to tell him I love him, really love him, but I’m scared to death of what he’ll say. If I’ve got this all wrong, I’ll lose him—forever.


Jamies Leben ist eine einzige finanzielle Katastrophe, was aber nicht seine Schuld ist. Dass er in der Bibliothek einen Wohltäter finden würde, ist das Letzte, womit er gerechnet hätte. Auch wenn er anfangs misstrauisch ist, was Guys Motive betrifft, wird schnell klar, dass sein Retter ein guter Mann ist, der im Leben Glück hatte und das nun weitergeben will. Dass Guy schwul ist, ist kein Problem. Jamie hat ohnehin kein Interesse … glaubt er zumindest.

Die beiden kommen gut miteinander aus und Guy freut sich, dass er Jamie unterstützen kann. Aber als Jamie seiner Neugierde nachgibt, sieht Guy den jungen Mann plötzlich mit anderen Augen. Was als Hilfestellung begann, ist nun etwas völlig anderes …


Le secret du sénateur

Dreamspun Desires (Français)

Lorsque son adversaire du parti républicain publie une photo qui révèle son homosexualité sur Facebook, le sénateur Samuel Dalton n’a pas beaucoup de solutions. Peu importe que la photo soit complètement innocente. Il doit avouer la vérité… Puis son équipe de campagne propose un rebondissement inattendu.

Oui, cela lui accorderait la sympathie des électeurs, particulièrement celle de la communauté LGBT, mais la solution semble un peu drastique. 

Et puis, il faut convaincre Gary, l’autre homme sur la photo, de jouer le jeu. Cela ne paraît pas difficile de faire croire à toute la Caroline du Nord que Sam et lui sont fiancés.

Pas difficile, sauf qu’ils viennent tout juste de se rencontrer…
