“You think you can go gay for the summer?”
“I’m the bad egg in Team Gay.”
Gay romance author Aaron Douglas has almost everything going for him: a successful career, fun friends, and loving parents who live just far enough away. Unfortunately, he’s earned a love ’em and leave ’em reputation, though. Finding a gorgeous gay romance author in this little Colorado town is a thrill, even if Conor says he’s straight. When Aaron’s landlord kicks him out, the solution is obvious: Aaron can stay with Conor, they can write and fix up Conor’s cute farmhouse together, and they can pretend to date. That’s all. Aaron won’t fall for another straight guy again…even one as amazing as Conor.
“What do I know about gay romance?”
Conor Kennedy just wants to renovate and sell his old farmhouse, escape this small town, and find a nice girlfriend. His novels don’t sell, though, and his repairs are taking forever. Everything feels broken until Aaron jokingly offers the perfect solution. Why not pose as a cute gay couple for the summer? Both of their careers will benefit and they’ll both get the company of a great new friend… plus Hope, the stray golden retriever who’s chosen to live with them. But all Conor can think about is the most illogical thing of all: he wants to do more with his gay co-author than write romance novels.
“Will you sweep me under the rug again?”
Living in tight quarters during the renovation while writing a book together challenges both men to stick to the terms of their deal. They’re opposites in almost every way, and the tension is thick. As their fake relationship deadline approaches, questions loom over them both: were they only faking, or has something real blossomed between them? When the internet learns of Conor’s past, will their love be strong enough to keep them together?
Just a Summer Deal is a steamy, stand-alone GFY gay romance novel with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.

Alex has a frightening dilemma. Dylan is attractive, appealing, out and proud. He’s also completely unaware that he’s a werewolf. It shouldn’t be Alex’s job to tell him, and warn him that gay wolves usually end up dead. But someone has to, before he finds out in blood and violence.
Chicago’s not Alex’s home town, but somehow he needs to protect Dylan from the local packs, protect the Packs from being outed by Dylan, and keep his cool around the first man to touch his own deeply-closeted heart.
