When he meets auto mechanic Bruno Ross, Slade finally finds a man who desires a dedicated relationship as much as he does. But Slade’s thirteen-year-old son Kent is spiraling out of control as he struggles through the emotional fallout from the divorce. It’s too bad Bruno doesn’t like kids, and isn’t at all sure he wants to be around a hostile boy who blames his gay dad for tearing his family apart.
Bruno has baggage of his own. He broke up with Davis, his partner of eleven years, only five months before he met Slade.

As he starts to realize that even a predator can become prey, he runs into Garangjas – another man who drinks blood.

Kulani Mahikoa is “The Orchid,” a young, insecure, pro surfer from a rough background on the Big Island of Hawai’i. He’s Beau Toyama’s cousin from Hawaiian Lei and a healer with a heart as deep as the ocean he’s part of. Like many of the great Hawaiians, Kulani epitomizes the spirit of aloha and love. Kulani’s healing his own wounds, and “The Lost Boys”--young, homeless abandoned and abused gay boys he cares for.
He meets the lone and lonely New Zealand widower, Rob Masterson--a wounded psychologist who’s trying to come to terms with his husband’s death. When he died, they were separated but still living together. Rob needs to reconcile all the pieces of guilt and love to heal before he can fall in love again.
The age difference raises one barrier, and besides that, Kulani has more layers than Rob--with his own New Zealand heritage and tangled knot of emotion--ever bargained for. Traveling between the South Sea Islands of beautiful New Zealand and the exotic Hawaiian Islands, they forge a bond--two wounded men find a home for their shrapnel-laced souls.

Johann considered the handsome young American officer the answer to his desperate prayers to save his beloved Germany from the cancerous infection of Nazi rule. What really happened between the two men during those long summer days in von Biehn’s Spreewald mansion must be kept secret at any cost.
With his own government forbidding Frank to reveal anything political that happened during the war, and society forcing him to conceal their personal relationship, Frank will have to find something truly unexpected to prevent Johann's all-but-certain death sentence.
