New Release

So, This Happened

ace

 

I can’t believe it. Ace was a year old at the end of September, and I decided to run a promotion. Those who bought a copy, thank you! It was an incredible couple of days, and making #1 LGBT book on Amazon.com was such a thrill.

TheSlave-horzComing 27 October – The Slave and The Soldier, books 1 and 2 in my Free Men series. Book 3, The Master, is coming 24 November.

The Slave is available for pre-order now from Amazon, iTunes, and Barnes&Noble.

On release day both titles will also be available from Smashwords and AllRomance.

The first review of The Slave is in, courtesy of the awesome Kazza at On Top Down Under (warning, link images NSFW). She gave it five glorious stars, saying, “Fantastic fantasy and sexy as sin, The Slave is just that little bit different and highly addictive.”

Coming October 2014 ~ Free Men

Proudly announcing the forthcoming release of a new trilogy: Free Men, an AU slaveworld menage. Below are the first two covers. The third novel, The Master, is remaining elusive for a little while longer.

slave free men cover

THE SLAVE

At twenty-seven, Tamelik has been a slave more than half his life, having witnessed his family being murdered in front of him when he was just a child. Naturally submissive, although with a petulant streak, he can’t help but fall in love with the master who treats him kindly.

Tam’s dreams come true when his mistress walks out, leaving her husband behind. For six glorious months, he and his master get to be together. Then Tam is ordered to purchase another slave.

He wants to hate Kai for being unruly and ungrateful. For being of the same race as the men who murdered his family. For being his eventual replacement in their master’s bed. But it’s hard to hate a man who cries himself to sleep, flinches at the slightest touch, and blushes beautifully when he’s kissed.

Seducing Kai has suddenly become more challenge than chore, and with his master’s encouragement, Tam finds himself falling for his new companion. Except… nobody can be in love with two people at once, can they?

soldier free men cover THE SOLDIER

Three months. That’s all it took for Kai to forsake freedom and learn to love his new life as pleasureslave to a wealthy Thirskan Underlord.

Finding himself surrounded by his own people once more, Kai should have been happy: relieved to be rescued from slavery, and out of the clutches of a man who was the sworn enemy of his people. Yet his people are not how he remembers them. Distrustful of Kai, and disgusted by his relationship with not one man but two, they make it abundantly clear he no longer fits in.

Beaten, starved, and tortured, when the chance comes to escape, Kai is barely strong enough to make the journey. Even if he succeeds, how could anybody ever love the thing he’s become in order to survive? His only hope is to save his companions, even if it means throwing himself on the mercy of the wife of the man he’s grown to love.

Now Available — The Coward’s Way #mmromance

cowards way cover

Two months after the discovery of a murderer in their midst, life for the inhabitants of Puddledown has settled back to normal for everybody except Hugo Wainwright. Having accepted his feelings for groundskeeper Tommy Granger, for Hugo, everything has changed. 

Hugo wants nothing more than to make his friend happy, but the voices in his head won’t let him. If he can’t bring himself to tell Tommy he’s having nightmares about the evening the killer came for him, how can he possibly explain the panic he feels every time Tommy tries to take their fledgling relationship further? 

When the local Viscount’s daughter goes missing after a ball from which Hugo and Tommy were the only guests to leave early, suspicion falls firmly on them. But the police inspector isn’t the only one keeping a close eye on the cabin in the woods, and as the net closes, Hugo has a decision to make. Will he be brave, or will he take the coward’s way out? 

Available now from Amazon.


 

REMINDER: To celebrate the release of The Coward’s WayThe Dead Past is available for the bargain price of $0.99 for a limited time only. Available from Amazon.

THE DEAD PAST ~ Release Day and a #SALE

dead past puddledown mysteries kate aaron gay mm romance cozy

 

Puddledown, England

The year is 1948, the war is over and the evacuees have gone home, although rationing continues. For Hugo Wainwright, who escaped conscription and never had to fight for his country, very little has changed. He lives a quiet life away from the big cities, knowing his desires for other men will lead to disaster if he ever acts on them.

Tommy Granger spent his service on the battlefields of France. He experienced it all: the bloody horrors of war, and the chaos of Dunkirk. Finding employment as groundskeeper in the woods on the outskirts of Puddledown, he lives in solitude, trying to forget all the terrible things he’s seen.

When Hugo stumbles over a body not far from Tommy’s cabin, both men’s lives change forever. There’s a killer in the woods, and the townsfolk are sure Tommy is the culprit. Can Hugo unmask the murderer and prove the innocence of the man he’s falling for, or are the deadly consequences of Tommy’s past about to catch up to him and separate the two men forever?

Available now from Amazon, ARe, and Smashwords. Coming soon to B&N, iTunes, and in paperback.

 Squee! Match is now available from Amazon, AllRomance, and Smashwords. Coming everywhere else soon!

MATCH cover

 

Whatever happened to Brian Scagill? 

A year after his dramatic exit from England’s Grand Slam tournament, Brian has all but disappeared from the world of professional tennis, and doesn’t intend to return. He’s made a life for himself with fellow athlete Lexi Horvat, far removed from the dual pressures of fame and family.

A surprise wildcard might be his last chance to play on an international stage, and Brian’s life is thrown into tumult once again. This time, however, he’s not alone. Lexi has secured himself a place in the tournament, as has Jared, a young player the two men have been coaching. With his loved ones accompanying him, Brian agrees to play. Lexi promises they’ll take on the tournament together, as a team, but Brian knows better than anyone that on the grass, it’s every man for himself.
