Blurb: “You’re dead.”

“No one knows the real Cori Archontis. All anyone ever cares about is that I’m the lead singer from that band.”

Five years have passed since Cori Archontis traded dirty money for fame and skyrocketed his band, Love & Deceptions, into stardom – five years spent drowning his past in narcotics, dating women to stay publicly closeted, and running from his mistakes. But Cori’s time is up. The Hollywood based crime syndicate who pushed him to the top of the charts is done waiting for him to pay back his debt.

And they’ve sent the most handsome man Cori’s ever seen to collect what Cori owes them – his life.

“No matter what, I’ll never let myself be like my father.”

The job is simple. Get in, put a bullet through the kid’s skull, and get out. Nero’s done it before. He’s been a member of crime syndicate The Mad Royals for twenty years, and as crime lord Caligula’s right hand man, he’s as unsympathetic as he is ruthless.

And it’s cocky, gorgeous, arrogant flirts like Cori that Nero hates most of all.

But there’s a vibrancy in Cori’s voice and a sincerity in his song that makes Nero’s finger pause before he pulls the trigger – and it fills him with dread. He’s been sworn off men for longer than he’s been a Royal, and there’s no way he’d ever stoop so low as to go down the path he followed.

“I’m ready to give it all up – for you.”

But fate has other plans.

When two troubled pasts collide and expose a threat far more urgent than a simple debt, Cori and Nero’s lives are thrust onto parallel tracks. Forced to trust one another while the world unravels at their feet and old scars open fresh, if they want to survive, they’ll have to learn to conquer their differences and find middle ground.

Or maybe somewhere even closer than that.

Blurb:  Byron is tall, handsome, well spoken, wealthy, and has outstanding taste in wine and food. You’ll be impressed by his impeccable attire and eloquence in conversation, ranging from Baroque art to the newest advances in pharmacology. With his charming smile and elegant manners, Byron truly is the perfect date… and who doesn’t love a man who appreciates opera?

What’s the catch, you ask?

Just this: if Byron finds you suitable, he will subject you to utterly depraved forms of torture.

No, I’m not talking about S&M.

Byron will mutilate, rape, and then kill you. Don’t think that you will survive the encounter, because you won’t. He has a perfect record.

Intrigued? Would you like me to arrange a rendezvous? It has to be in the next few days because he’s leaving on a trip south to much warmer climes, and his calendar will be completely full.

Yes? Very good. I will make a reservation for two under the name of Smith.

Who am I? I’m Gloria, his personal assistant.

Blurb: When Evan and Brennan moved in with their boyfriends, Alek and Luka, they knew things would be complicated, but as their privacy gets eroded, and people around them begin to notice the tangled nature of the four-way relationship, coping becomes a struggle. After Brennan leaves on a brief trip home, and Evan remains behind to enjoy the full attention of both Alek and Luka, the careful balance of things gets thrown off.

Ex-boyfriends surface, haunting Evan and Brennan in similar ways as regret for poor choices threatens their happiness, and the sexual freedom displayed earlier in their lives draws predators willing to use violence, coercion, mind-games and force to take what they want. Though Luka and Alek struggle to protect those they love, it soon becomes clear that the dangers surrounding them will find ways to rush in, trying to take what belongs to them.
