Our creative output has been a little low in 2015 because of various Life Obstacles arising for both of us, but we’re already making progress toward increasing our publications in 2016!
The next book in the Herc’s Mercs series will be released on January 6 from Torquere Press! Herc’s Mercs: The Harder They Fall is the first story to feature two employees of Hercules Security. Jason Hekili is a former actor/model/EMT turned merc and Chris Hardison is the west coast branch’s IT specialist. Jason and Chris meet at the anniversary party of Alec “Red” Davis and Jon Baldwin and sparks fly, but Chris’ bad relationship experiences cause him not to trust that hot, hunky Jason will remain interested in a geeky guy like him. When Chris is targeted by corrupt men who want to stop him from testifying against them, Jason is assigned to Chris’ protection detail, and they are thrown together in a safe house where the proximity forces them both to face the doubts and fears that have kept them apart.
A Taste of Honey tells the story of two best friends who could find love with each other — if they can figure out they’re perfect for one another. Rob “Honey” Coombs is a successful graphic artist who performs as a drag queen in his off-time. Boone Phillips is his best friend who needs a big favor: a fake girlfriend to keep his well-meaning mother from matchmaking at the upcoming Phillips family reunion. Honey seems like the perfect choice until Boone’s attraction to Honey makes him realize his feelings for Rob aren’t as platonic as he thought. A Taste of Honey will be released on March 9 from Torquere Press!
And on December 15, we have Striking Sparks, #24 in Dreamspinner Press’ new Dreamspun line! Jake Parnell and Beau Walker have been rivals since high school, but their animosity covered a mutual attraction. The death of his brother brings Jake back to Buffalo Lick, Texas, to help take care of his sister-in-law and her kids, and he and Beau renew their old rivalry for a televised barbecue competition. But ratings and the success of their rival restaurants aren’t the only things at stake; their hearts are on the line as well.
We don’t have a new holiday story this year, alas, but we do have some older ones that are still available!
Happy holidays to all our readers! 😀
