New release! The Quality of Mercy

I’m a little late making this announcement because life has been a little hectic lately, but better late than never! Ari and I are pleased to announce the second book in our Bent Oak saga, The Quality of Mercy.

Gil Porter and Matt Grayson’s Bent Oak Ranch in Mercy, Texas, is a rare haven for gay men in the nineteenth century, and their friend Carlos Hernandez will need it when a man from his past unexpectedly comes back into his life.

Jules Wingate hopes to start over in Mercy as the schoolmaster after a scandal sent him and his son fleeing their former home. But he discovers he’s left one bad situation for another when he encounters his former student and lover, Carlos. No matter how Jules tries to resist, he yearns for the passionate connection they once shared… before Carlos broke his heart.

Carlos knows his foolish, immature actions hurt Jules, but he desperately wants a second chance and to show Jules he’s changed. But trust so badly broken is hard to repair. While he works to earn Jules’s forgiveness, someone else at the ranch has his sights set on Carlos—and he doesn’t care how many lives he has to ruin to make Carlos his and his alone.

This is a sequel to Finding Forgiveness.

Happy New Year!

We hope 2018 brings happiness and good health to all our readers!

Here’s what’s coming up for us in the new year. In January (tomorrow, in fact!), Dreamspinner Press will release our new historical Western, The Quality of Mercy.

In February, we’ll release the seventh book in the Herc’s Mercs series. Herc’s Mercs: No Pain, No Gain will feature Hunter “Able” Callahan, a merc from Lawson & Greer who worked with D-Day when he tackled a truck with a nuke in it in Bloody But Unbowed, and Payne “PITA” Gibson, one of Herc’s men who appears in the revised version of The Bigger They Come.

In March, Dreamspinner Press will release Heart of Glass, which is the brand new third book in the Lawyers in Love trilogy. Asher Caldwell is known for being a workholic and commitment-phobic, but can a case of mistaken identity lead him to true love?

In May, Dreamspinner Press will release Asheville Arcana: Forged in Fire, the sequel to Out of the Ashes. Whimsy Hickes is a mage who finds himself the recipient of a one-sided bond with werewolf Harlan Edgewood. Navigating that kind of relationship is difficult enough, but Whimsy has possessed shapeshifters and invading demons to worry about as well!

In July, Dreamspinner Press will release Knitting a Broken Heart Back Together (2nd edition), a standalone romance about finding a second chance at love after heartbreak.

And later in 2018, Dreamspinner Press will release Seeking Solace, the third book in the Walker Boys series. Paul Mercer is heir to Triton Cruises, and he’s not looking for a shipboard romance when he embarks on a cruise under an assumed name to learn the ins and outs of a Triton ship, but he finds it with bartender Devon Walker. Will their romance survive Paul’s deception?

In the meantime, Ari and I will be working on the third Asheville Arcana book, the first book of a new series called Locksley Limited, and a fourth Walker Boys book!

Happy new year and happy reading!

Out of the Ashes is now available as an audiobook!

In their differences, they’ll find strength – and love.

Alpha werewolf Eli Hammond returns from a fishing trip to discover a nasty surprise – five members of his pack murdered and the rest missing. He needs help locating and rescuing his pack mates, but the supernatural council in Asheville, North Carolina, turns him away.

Except for one man.

As they work together, Eli is stunned – and not especially thrilled – to discover half-elf Arden Gilmarin is his destined mate. But as Arden and his friends struggle to help Eli in his quest, Eli surrenders to the demands of his body – and his heart. They’ll need to bond together, because the forces opposing them are stronger and more sinister than anyone predicted. The evil has its sights set on Arden, and if Eli wants to save his mate and the people he is entrusted with protecting, he’s in for the fight of his life.

Available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

The Candy Cane Club: His to Serve is now available on Amazon!

Cameron Ward is an actor from Atlanta. After a stint in New York, he returns home to find work in Georgia’s growing film and TV industry. He lands a lead role in a film, playing a submissive, but he doesn’t know anything about the lifestyle. Wanting to make sure his portrayal isbelievable, Cameron goes to the Candy Cane Club, a BDSM dungeon, where he meets Anton Albright, a Dom. Cameron loosens up enough to do a scene with Anton, but he discovers a side of himself he’d never suspected. But Cameron had enough difficulty coming out as gay, and he’s not ready to admit he’s a submissive as well.

Dr. Anton Albright has a reputation for being good with new subs. What he’d really like, though, is a sub of his own. Cameron is the kind of man Anton wants, and once Cameron accepts his need to serve — and, especially, to serve Anton — they explore the possibilities of a relationship that will give them both everything they want and need.

But when fame comes calling at Cameron’s door, their private, intimate world is threatened. Anton’s medical practice won’t survive his private life being held up to public display, and Cameron finds it difficult to adjust to extended periods away from his Sir. Can they find a compromise that will make them both happy, or will Cameron’s rising star force him to leave Anton behind?

Fortune’s Slings and Cupid’s Arrows is now available!

You can buy Santa’s Naughty Helper at this low price today as part of Dreamspinner Press’s Daily Deals program.

Successful attorneys Dane Coulter and Cal Monroe are rivals in the courtroom and friends behind the scenes. But can they be more?

Cal’s always carried a torch for Dane, but Dane is so deep in the closet, he can’t even admit that he might be gay. His father, a raging homophobe who rules the family with an iron fist, forces Dane into an engagement—to a woman. Dane goes along with it to keep the peace and protect his mother, but for Cal, it’s the last straw.

He can’t let Dane make a mistake that could ruin the rest of his life, and he only knows one surefire way to make Dane admit what’s in his heart. But confessing his feelings to his friend could backfire, driving a wedge between them. And even then, the choice must be Dane’s—to live the life his father wants, or to give up everything he has for a chance at happiness in Cal’s arms.
