When Lyle comes across a seductive, attractive stranger with a fascinating yet terrifying view of humanity, he's more than intrigued. It doesn't take Lyle long to realize that Arius isn't just playing games, though, and when Lyle runs across a secret in Arius' lair he has no choice but to flee, even knowing his actions will enrage Arius.
On the run, with only a psychic's second sight and his own instinct to help him, Lyle has nowhere to go but home. The only question is, will they have him when he shows up.

Troy lives and works in Las Vegas, Sin City itself, but he wants more than glitz and fun and sex.

Could his perfect match possibly be his good-looking long-time—and happily straight and married—friend, John? Or what about Brett, that attractive guy he just met? And there’s the model-perfect bad-boy-next-door who introduces himself as Remy Orleans, and yet whose real name is Sam Miller, as Troy learns when he goes to bail his sexy neighbor out of jail. Hmm.

Ennek Trilogy: Book One
Praesidium is the most prosperous city-state in the world, due not only to its location at the mouth of a great bay but also to its strict laws, stringently enforced. Ordinary criminals become bond-slaves, but the worst punishment—to be suspended in a dreamless frozen state known as Stasis—is doled out by the wizard and reserved for only the most serious of traitors.
Ennek is the youngest son of Praesidium’s strict Chief. Though now a successful portmaster, Ennek grew up without much of a purpose, unable to fulfill his true desires and always skating on the edge of the law. But he is also haunted by the plight of one man, Miner, a prisoner for whom Stasis appears to be a truly horrible fate. If Ennek is to save Miner, he must explore Praesidium’s deepest secrets as well as his own.

“Was I your art school dreamboat?”
“I lost it all overnight.”
Philadelphia artist Connor Banks has washed up, and he's only twenty-five. The sting hasn't faded after that night three months ago when his last art show bombed right before he was dumped. He designs t-shirts to pay the bills, but he's dateless and creatively uninspired now, hardly moving from the couch until a chatty Siamese cat invades his apartment. When his best friend drags him out to a gay bar to get him drawing people again, Connor's stunned to reunite with the last guy he'd expect behind that bar: Zach Stephens, the heartthrob of his first year in art school.
“That's when my parents kicked me out.”
It's been five years since bartender Zach Stephens had to drop out of engineering school and lost touch with his best friend from freshman year. After he was caught holding hands with another guy, Zach and his dog escaped his parents, and Zach's been struggling ever since to build a stable life. He just can't reconcile the hunky, tattooed Zach everyone else sees—and wants—with the little he feels like he has to offer. But Connor sees him for more than his abs, and falling into his first relationship with his old friend is the easiest thing in the world.
“I want to do something with my life.”
When Zach's boss tells them the bar's closing in sixty days unless he finds a buyer, Zach has a choice to make: move and find a proper career but lose Connor, his first boyfriend, stay in town but work in dead-end bartending jobs... or take the third option, the scariest of all, and secure a future for everyone. While Connor struggles with his fear of certain failure if he enters the next big art show, Zach has to decide what kind of man he wants to be. Can Connor and Zach screw up their courage and be brave, or will they only screw up the one good thing they had going?
Last Call is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers.
