It was supposed to be a simple job...

Aaron Reuter catches a lucky break when the house he has been casing is suddenly vacated. He has to pull off this job to get back in his dad's good graces.

But the moment he breaks in, he knows something is wrong.

As he searches for the loot, he learns that someone in the house is dying from the same thing that killed his mother. On this, the anniversary of her death, he can't let that happen. Not when there's a shred of hope. But he also can't let down the only family he has left.

About the Authors

D.G. Carothers

D.G. Carothers is actually a dragon very cleverly disguised as a human. They are a non-binary author of LGBTQI Romance and Urban Fantasy, who enjoys writing original and entertaining stories. They are very excited to share the worlds they've created with you.

D.G. is committed to writing the stories they see in their head without restrictions. Love is blind and doesn't see gender, race, or sexuality.

D.G. currently lives in Tennessee with their platonic life partner, who is not a dragon. They yearn to live back in Europe and will some day. In their spare time they are addicted to losing themselves in the lovely worlds created by other authors.

G.R. Lyons

G.R. Lyons stumbled into writing as a form of trauma recovery when traditional therapy wasn't working.

Then the story ideas just kept on coming.

Pulling from a vivid imagination as well as real-life experience as a trans man, a sexual assault survivor, and a person living with mental illness, Lyons has written multiple, interconnected series set within his fictional world of the Shifting Isles.

When not writing, Lyons can be found belly dancing around the house, studying anarcho-capitalist philosophy, buried in his never-ending TBR pile, or working out at the local CrossFit gym.
