I have two, two books up for pre-order!
The first is a brand new book, Outside the Lines, which will be released on October 16th. It’s up for pre-order at Riptide publishing. (There will also be a cover reveal soooooon. And the cover is lovely.)
If you’ll be at GayRomLit, I’m pretty sure Riptide will have paper copies for sale there.
Here’s the Blurb:
Miniature artist Ian Meyer has one week to rebuild his damaged set. Needing help, he goes to End o’ Earth, the local comic and gaming shop. Owner Simon Derry pushes all of Ian’s buttons, and he also has steady hands and the skills Ian needs.
Before they can even grab a beer, Ian meets Lydia Derry, Simon’s wife. If Ian had any interest in women, he’d suggest a threesome, but then Simon explains that he and Lydia are polyamorous, and if Ian wants Simon, neither of them will complain. If anything, Lydia encourages the relationship.
Ian’s all in, and it’s fantastic working with Simon to piece together his set and then take each other apart at night. His friendship with Lydia grows too. The only problem is, the more time he spends with Simon, the more he wants everything Simon already has with Lydia: A house. A cat. A commitment. So Ian runs, and shatters the trust he has with them both—right when they need him the most. Piecing their relationships back together might prove harder than a smashed set.
Outside the Lines is part of Riptide Publishing’s Bluewater Bay series, (and some favorite characters show up) but it can be read as a standalone with no issues whatsoever. It’s fun and campy and geeky and sweet and really hot, kinda all rolled into one. I had a lot of fun writing the book and I really hope people enjoy it. It’s a little different of a take on what “happy ever after” means, but it’s one that’s true for a lot of people.
The second pre-order is the re-release of my erotic paranormal romance Close Quarter! I’m releasing that on August 15th.
On a transatlantic cruise to New York, sculptor Rhys Matherton struggles to piece his life back together after losing his mother, inheriting a fortune, and finding out his father isn’t his father after all. He spills a tray of drinks on a handsome stranger, then he finds himself up against a wall getting the best hand-job he’s ever had. And for the first time in his life, he feels whole.
Rhys enjoys the company of Silas Quint, but for the eerie way no one pays attention to them even while they kiss in a crowded bar. Silas explains he’s a forest fae able to glamor the room around them—and more importantly, that he’s on the cruise to hunt vampires. Rhys thinks Silas is full of it, until he discovers vampires are real, and he’s part of their main course.
Silas Quint can’t be distracted by a human lover, even one as lovely as Rhys. Stuck in the middle of the ocean, he has barely enough of energy to hunt the vampires he’s been sent to destroy. Rhys is full of the one thing Silas needs needs most—the element of living plants. Only sucking energy from Rhys would make Silas as soulless as the creatures he hunts. How can he keep Rhys safe, without becoming like the very monsters he hunts?
I’m in the process of setting up a paperback copy, but I’ll need to order a proof and all that, so I’m not sure when that’ll go live, but I should have copies in time for GayRomLit, too!
