20 February 2012 - Always Hope
Ash Watts has his life exactly how he wants it: burgeoning career, gorgeous boyfriend, and an apartment with a fabulous view of LA. But his perfect world comes crashing down around his ears when learns of his only sister's untimely death. A small town isn't all he finds when he lands in Freedom, Alabama for Annie's funeral. This small town is brimming with secrets; secrets that could change Ash's life forever.
Kaleb Gibson, honest-to-God cowboy, and native of Freedom, born and bred, found his best friend the moment Annie Watts breezed into town. Her death left a gaping hole in his heart, and while Annie's brother may have her same dark hair and green eyes, Kaleb refuses to lose his heart all over again, and he can’t forgive the man for neglecting his sister when she needed him most.
Revelations from Annie's Will throw Kaleb and Ash together in ways they never imagined. Will Kaleb be able to carry out Annie’s last wishes without killing her beloved brother and without revealing a secret from his own past that could destroy everything? And will Ash stick around long enough to see that Freedom may hold an even more perfect life than he could have imagined?
5 March 2012 - Continental Divide (co-written with Laura Harner)
Detective Remington fuckin' hates the missing persons detail, but a cold fury builds in the pit of his stomach when he realizes that six boys have disappeared from the smaller communities that surround the greater Phoenix area over the past three months. Runaways looking for a way out of their shitty lives. He's starting to put together a picture and he doesn't like it one damn bit.
Inspector Mainwaring stars at the six reports, wiling them to make sense. Six boys, six months, six different parts of the city, six different investigators. All between the ages of ten and thirteen, all runaways, all from dysfunctional families.
There are always runaways. Every small town loses them, every big city collects them. Kids looking for freedom and discover they have more to lose than they ever thought possible. London and Phoenix, culture and cowboys, nothing linking these two sprawling metropolitan areas. Nothing except a hit on a computer data search.
Two cops, one a cowboy, the other a Lord. A secret government agency and human trafficking.
What the hell have Remington and Mainwaring got themselves into? And will they be able to fight the bad guys while fighting their attraction to each other?
10 March 2012 - Laurel Heights
A shot rings out in the dead of night and leaves two residents dead in the exclusive, gay gated housing community of Laurel Heights, an apparent murder/suicide, but not everyone is convinced.
Detectives Scott Turner and Will Harrison are sent undercover to dig beneath the surface and discover answers. There’s only one problem: Scott and Will are not out of the closet at work. Now they are two gay men, pretending to be straight, who must pretend to be gay in order to stop a murderer.
Will the two closeted officers be able to hide their attraction while believing the other is straight? And is the killer living among them waiting to claim his next victim?
WORKS IN PROGRESS:
Before Sundown - a story of love between two cowboys in the 1870's. Samuel is being forced into a marriage by his father, believing his lover, Ely, is dead - murdered by his own father to bring him into line. Unbeknownst to Samuel, Ely is desperately trying to get back to him, scarred by Samuel's father, but determined to stop the sham wedding and take Samuel away as they'd planned.
Barty Bear, Me & Daddy Makes Three - Evan left Texas for LA with ambitions of seeing his name in lights and he has succeeded, sort of. He plays Barty Bear, Dreamland Theme Park's star attraction. When he meets Casey, a pretty little lost seven year old, he doesn't expect to end up locked in a cell, accused of kidnapping by the girl's father. And he certainly doesn't expect the man to be the most gorgeous thing he has ever seen.
When Dean loses Casey at the theme park, he is beside himself, every true movie he's ever seen playing in his head as he searches for her. On seeing her being led away by a big muscled brut of a man, he does what any self-respecting father would do, he chases him down and has him arrested. The only thing is... the following morning he is told by the police that the muscled brut was telling the truth... he not only works at Dreamland, but he's Barty Bear, the star of the show. How the hell is he going to get Evan to forgive him?
(Barty Bear, Me & Daddy Makes Three - is told in a three book series, with three novellas within each book, with titles such as... Barty Bear & Cotton Candy, Barty Bear's First Date, Barty Bear Get's Laid... Hopefully - and so on)
