People talk about the marriage of true minds, but Alexander doesn’t think this is what they meant.

After a cruel experiment binds him to the soul of Rota, an old god, Alexander has one mission: find Rota’s body. Having a godly boyfriend is great, but it would be better to have one that he could actually touch. Unfortunately, even Alexander’s ability to command Rota’s divine power hasn’t helped.

A rare book of poetry may finally provide the answer. The expertise they need translating it brings them to Oleander Logue, a young man with plenty of problems that seem at odds with his cheerful nature. Ollie is happy to help, but he’s in trouble with a gangster who demands that Alexander and Rota solve a series of murders first.

Desperate, Alexander and Rota accept the case… but it’s not that simple. The gangster’s threats to Ollie’s safety disturb them both, but is that because they’re both growing more attracted to Ollie… or because he’s a potential host for Rota? If they can’t solve these murders, they may never find out.

Lions & Tigers & Bears: Book Two

As part of a military team, Crank needs to keep his head on straight. His unit depends on it. So the recurring sensual dreams he’s having—the ones featuring a shark shifter with dark brown hair and eyes—really screw with his focus. Especially since the shifter is a guy.

Greenland shark shifter Vic can’t stop thinking about Crank, a human military guy he met when Vic got called in for a consult. Crank seems handy with anything that flies, and Vic would be happy to have him at his back, in more ways than one. And that’s a problem—firstly because Vic’s in love with his boyfriend, Saul, but also because Crank is sarcastic, irreverent… and straight.

The problem comes to a head when Saul discovers Vic has been dreaming about a man who isn’t him. Saul does not share. But when Crank starts invading Saul’s dreams too, he has to reassess his feelings. His life may depend on it.

Exploring the growing connection between the three of them will have to wait, though. The upcoming mission demands the team’s full attention. They’re about to discover something huge, and they have badly underestimated the enemy….

Sucker For Love Mysteries | Book 5

Newlyweds Sloane and Loch are eagerly expecting their first child, though for Sloane that excitement is tempered by pregnancy side effects. Carrying a god’s baby would be enough to deal with, especially with the whole accelerated gestation thing, but it’s not like Sloane can take maternity leave. He works for himself as a private investigator. Which leads him to his next case.

At least this strange new mystery distracts him from the stress of constant puking.

When two priests are murdered within hours of each other, a woman named Daphne hires Sloane and Loch to track down the prime suspect—her brother—before the police do. Between untangling a conspiracy of lies and greed, going toe-to-toe with a gangster, and stealing a cat, they hardly have time to decorate a nursery….

Amour tentaqueulaire

L'amour, toujours

Rien ne rapproche aussi bien deux hommes – ou plutôt un homme et un immortel – que la vengeance.

Sloane, détective privé, a sacrifié sa carrière dans les Forces de l’Ordre pour traquer le meurtrier de ses parents. Comme eux, il croit en des dieux oubliés, il pratique leur magie et leur offre ses prières… sans jamais obtenir de réponse.

Jusqu’ici.

Azaethoth le Petit, dieu des voleurs et des escrocs, prend soin des siens. Il vient sur terre pour venger le meurtre d’un de ses favoris et peut-être séduire le très tentant détective que le destin a mis sur son chemin. S’il réussit dans ses projets, il ne s’agira pas seulement d’attraper un tueur pour le remettre à la justice. En fait, Azaethoth est sûr d’avoir enfin trouvé celui avec lequel il aimerait passer sa vie éternelle.

La résistance initiale de Sloane cède devant la tendresse inattendue d’Azaethoth, et les tentacules qu’il aperçoit parfois sous l’apparence humaine du dieu enflamment son imagination. Mais leur enquête devient de plus en plus étrange et dangereuse. Pour survivre à la bataille finale, le couple aura besoin d’un peu de foi… et beaucoup de lumière mystique.

Professor Victor Itoua has two passions: the legend of Philli-philli… and PhD candidate Jordan Harris. But while ethics rules and his own doubts keep him from admitting, much less acting on, his feelings for Jordan, nothing can stop him from researching the Philli-philli.

For Jordan, with his history of abuse and abandonment, Victor is the one good, constant thing in his life. When Victor asks him to come to Peru, Jordan packs his bag, prepared to follow Victor anywhere the legends take them.
 
Then, in a remote village, Jordan and Victor meet T’ukri.

T’ukri is shaken when he realizes who the outsiders are and what they are looking for. Though he agrees to guide them on their quest, he is drawn by a deeper calling. But the more he shares with Victor and Jordan, the more questions they have—questions whose answers require him to reveal secrets that could mean his death should the men he is falling in love with betray his trust….
