Summary: From the outside looking in, John leads a boring life by day as a professor at a small liberal arts school in San Francisco. His nights are saucy, sinful even, when he services clients as a sex worker. He’s damned good at it, too, for reasons far surpassing simple technique, whether he’s entertaining super-hunky coeds or fulfilling the fantasies of married men on the down-low. Because John has a secret. It’s not that he’s thirty-five and feeling washed-up or that he’s got a crush on one of his clients. His secret could be he’s buried his rural, Southern roots, or that Paul, his first lover and preacher from back home, still preoccupies his thoughts. Maybe it’s the terrors he faced in conversion therapy as a teenager…but it’s none of those things. John’s secret is the Fountain, a mysterious well of energy within him he cannot control. Paul knows about the Fountain. So do John’s parents. Despite their best efforts to protect their dogma, it will all come out now that Paul has called John home to Georgia. To Bethesda.

But I played the game, and no one needed to know what I did on my time away from the bar and community of trailers we lived in. No one needed to know about her. She treated me like I was normal, but friends was all she'd offer and I could deal…maybe.

A daughter and a sister, a mother, yet she was best known as a killer. When she finally meets her end, Amora will have hundreds, maybe thousands of lives to answer for. Her only wish is to find one moment of peace. She denies her need as much as she fights to protect it. When the one woman who can bring her serenity comes into her life: can Amora destroy century old walls to let her in? Lies and conspiracies tear at the fabric of sanity—of what’s right. Can truths come to light that change the reality of a family who’s known only the taste of revenge and loss?

Summary: Welcome to Brawlers Bar… A quick pit stop for a comfortable bed to sleep turned into an eight-year stay. Vincent “Crave” Butler hit the road the day after college graduation and hadn’t looked behind him since. He’d swore to never stop moving, but the night he drove into Powers, Georgia changed the course of his life. He’d hit a bar called Brawlers with its rundown exterior and pride flag beside the door, the next day he had a job. Second in command to the Head of Brawler security, Crave found the place he didn’t have to run from. No one would call Crave sane. He lived to make people as uncomfortable as possible just for his own twisted amusement. That all changed when a certain cute as fuck bartender walked in for an interview. No one wanted Twitch Harrison around. He was small, femme and annoying on his best days, downright abhorrent on his bad ones. When college turned out to be a no-go, and the parents canceled his credit cards he’d needed a job. Walking into Brawlers, the roughest gay bar in his hometown, was like a game of pick the thing that didn’t belong—him. The two owners, Scary and Tank, hired him on and four years later he was still that thing that didn’t belong. No one made it more apparent than bouncer Crave Butler who didn’t hide the fact he barely tolerated Twitch’s presence. Crave threatened every man who thought they’d get the pretty Twitch but would Twitch rather be in their beds than his? Only one way to find out and he hoped Twitch was ready for forever because that’s what Crave was determined to have.

Summary: A disgraced Scot... a misplaced Quaker (The Renegade and the Runaway 3) The story that began with Unkilted and Unbroken concludes in this novel. Gregory and David—a Highland Scot outlaw and a Quaker-trained Philadelphia native—are seeking a future together, in a place where they can live and love far from the censure of society. But the men learn that they cannot pull free from the forces that have shaped this new land called America, and from the past that has shaped each of them as individuals. A dissatisfied trainer of warriors and a would-be healer of men find more than they could ever have imagined—a famous trapper with a rifle and a guilty conscience… native Indians as complex as their enemies…a former slave who forgives his tormenters…a bounty hunter whose reward becomes more than money—all this and more, in the wilderness of America’s blue-ridged mountains. Can two men who love each other be happy in a land where retribution and violence seem to be the answer to every unacceptable question? Frontier Highlanders and its two companion novels really tell a love story. You’ll find explicit sex, adventure, humor, and a smattering of history—but above all you’ll unravel a unique romance.
