Summary: Frank and Rand travel into the heart of New Orleans to solve the latest case. This should be the perfect opportunity to introduce Rand to the dangerous and sometimes dirty world of private investigating. But the case is riddled with complications and trouble A century-old ghost has taken two young boys into the seedy bowels of another realm for desecrating his grave. To add to Frank and Rand’s dilemma, gay-haters stalk the streets of New Orleans, intent on wreaking havoc among the community. With the assistance of a nun, Sister Francoise Genevieve, Frank must enter that other realm to rescue the missing young boys and dispense a little street justice in the human world to save the man he loves. The Crossroads series is scorchingly hot and blends mystery, suspense, romance and at times, the paranormal. RAVES "Diablo's Crossroads Shadowland was an incredible story. Rand & Frank are so well developed they feel like old friends. The plot leaves you with the chills as you experience true evil and, then, relief when good intervenes. Hot passion & spine-tingling danger combine with the gratification and sorrow of the ending to produce a tale that will continue to haunt you even after you're done reading. We can only urge Keta Diablo to finish Book Five so we can see what happens next." CataNetwork Reads, 5 Stars. TOP REVIEWER PICK ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Crossroads: Shadowland is Keta Diablo's 4th installment in a series of novellas. If you enjoy a dash of the paranormal along with some HOT M/M action this book is for you. Keta Diablo is a great author and Crossroads is a wonderful series. I just wish her stories were novel length because she always leaves me screaming for more!" Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Diablo writes gritty, emotional characters. Frank & Rand aren't on a sweet journey into love but one that leaves you a bit breathless and a bit abused. The sex is titillating and powerful. Their connection is palpable. I love how in each story, the author has upped the stakes for these 2 memorable men." Seriously Reviewed ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "The paranormal element in Crossroads: Shadowland is not just ghostly this time but takes on a slightly more frightening aspect. Diablo keeps her readers on their toes & takes Frank's experience to a new level with the haunting at the Hotel Provincial. I enjoyed the intensity of this novella & will be looking forward to any additional stories Diablo might pen that feature this mismatched pair of heroes." Book Wenches ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Another great addition to the Crossroads series. Keta tends to dish it out on a platter, serving it up to give you just a taste with an unexpected twist & leaves you dangling with want for the main course & you haven't even hit on the dessert yet. In this one Frank heads back to New Orleans with Rand to crack the case of two boys gone missing at a local cemetery, only to discover there's more to this that meets the naked eye. What will transpire in this book will get your temperature soaring to unhealthy levels and I'm not just talking about the steaming sex scenes." Four Stars Sidney, Goodreads ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Crossroads: Shadowland is the fourth story of the Crossroads series. Keta Diablo's characters are evolving with each new tale. Traveling to New Orleans for this story was a nice change of setting. I'm anxiously awaiting the next installment to get that answer and to see if the events have left Frank more protective or if he will see the error of his ways." Literary Nymphs ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I truly liked this story. The plot is well-developed; the story flows smoothly & the climax (pun intended) are clearly defined. The interactions between all characters are well-thought & very clear. Frank & Rand's relationship dynamics are also clear to the reader & people can easily identify with either and/or both." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Summary: The dreaded day had arrived. And this year, February 14th had a dual meaning. Since his breakup a month ago with his boyfriend, Valentine Giovanni, Deke’s life seemed meaningless. What had he expected? The moment Val found out he’d cheated on him, the shit hit the fan . . . and Deke’s shoes hit the pavement. He didn’t have time to explain why he cheated, and Val wouldn’t believe him. Val deserved better, a submissive that completely trusted him, who’d commit wholly to his rough sex and demands. So rather than talk over his fears and insecurities, Deke forced a breakup by admitting he’d cheated. It was a painful scene, an angry, gut-wrenching, debacle that ended in a screaming match. Deke thought he’d feel relief when it was over, but every day was more dismal than the last, and all he felt was emptiness. He’d never loved anyone like he loved Val. He realized that now. And tonight, he planned to grovel and beg for forgiveness, prove his love to the man. WARNING: Bondage, submission, spanking, domination, submission RAVES "Valentine's Vindication is a very entertaining story. Way steamier than I thought, which made it so much fun.
