Blurb: After being cheated on twice, why would I ever put myself through that crap again? Marriage obviously isn’t in the cards for me. Actually, my trust in women and love has pretty much been obliterated. And if I’m being completely honest, I really want nothing to do with it ever again. Relationships? Possibly. Monogamy? Maybe. Love and marriage? Uh, hell no! If you could see me, you’d know I’m giving you the middle finger right now.
Then this little spitfire, who has plagued my dreams, waltzes back into my professional life. She hires me to investigate her dirtbag fiancé, whom she fears is cheating on her. When my findings are revealed, I offer her support and friendship…because I’m a nice guy like that.
Is it possible that she is the one who can heal my damaged heart? Or are the wounds too deep?
*Warning: For mature audiences only. Contains some sensitive situations and graphic sex scenes. Please remember that this is a work of fiction and comes from my own imagination.
***Please Note: This book may be read as a stand-alone, but will be better read within the series so that you could understand and appreciate the characters’ back stories. Also, Duke’s story is happening in the midst of Dennis and Tucker’s story, so when the third book in the trilogy is released, Duke will not have been with Arianna yet. NOT A CLIFFHANGER!

Fourteen years ago, on a sun-drenched summer day on the banks of Craving’s Creek, Ryde swore to his best friend, Alistair, he’d never be alone in the world. Though Alistair was destined for the priesthood, there was something beyond holy about the first kiss they shared.
But a fun camping trip went horribly wrong when Alistair was involved in a horrific incident.
Now, at age thirty-one, Ryde’s life is a mess of alcohol and the painful imprint of his last look into Alistair’s desperate eyes. Since the evil they encountered on that shore, his first love has been lost to him—until he learns a friend’s wedding is to be officiated by a priest named Father Alistair Genet.
Amid the rush of emotions, one thought crystallizes: Ryde’s love for Alistair not only has never died, it’s stronger than ever. Stronger than God. But it may be no match for the church…and the repressed memories that are slowly tearing Alistair’s mind apart.

He tells himself he’s moving miles away to find himself a bed partner, but he’s lying. He has to. Facing up to the real reason he’s leaving isn’t something he can handle. His last undercover job proved too much—his life was at risk—and if he stays in London he’ll likely end up dead. Nightmares plague him, his subconscious unable to switch the past off. So he moves to a ranch in America, thinking the new surroundings and different lifestyle will help him to heal—and to forget. What he soon realizes is he’s jumping from the frying pan into the fire…
Joe’s passion—that of caring for the horses—is the only thing that keeps him sane. He’s a surly man, and for good reason—a reason he hasn’t told a soul. Folks think he’s mean and unapproachable and suspect him of committing murder. More than once. Locals assume that Joe got let off the hook. Nothing could be further from the truth, but Joe lets people think what they will. He’s done with their speculation and sly looks.
When Ross and Joe meet, tension is rife. The air between them prickles with animosity as well as sexual tension. Both have a past they can’t get over. Both have skeletons in their closets they wish would turn to dust. And both have to make a decision. Can they cast their fears aside and trust each other, or have the terrors they’ve experienced ruined them for love?

Blurb: An incubus makes a terrible boyfriend. But then, so does a fairy.
David is the last of his family, the end result of a long proud line of fey. Left to the care of his thousand-year-old “grandmother,” David was raised to love the earth and value his fey heritage – and to despise the human blood destined to rob him of the near-immortality his ancestors enjoyed. Caught between two opposing natures, David has done his best to survive. He’s used his good fey looks to build a career for himself as a fashion model in the ultra-modern metropolis of New Berlin. But as he ages, that career begins to stumble. At twenty-six, David is terrified that his human blood is about to betray him, and he’s fighting that fear the only way he knows how.
With pills, booze, and denial. And with Connor Wroth, his lifelong best friend, who just happens to be a rock star and an incubus.
On one hand, Connor is flamboyantly famous, a demon who survives by consuming the lustful energy of others. On the other, he’s the one person David has always been able to depend on. And if their friendship happens to include great sex, well, that’s not hurting anyone.
The trouble is, Connor isn’t sure he wants to be friends anymore. He’s been head over heels for David since they were teens, and he’s tired of watching David throw himself away over a futile quest for perfection. Especially when Connor knows David is already perfect the way he is.
So Connor hatches the perfect plan to get himself invited into David’s home as a houseguest, to get closer than close and turn their friendship into something much more.
