New Holiday Story Out Today!

Our our holiday romantic comedy, “Holiday Hootenanny”, is out today atΒ Torquere Books! Josh and Clint are lovers thinking about taking their relationship to a new level, but that means meeting each others families – and Josh has a family that would try the patience of a saint! As crazy and weird as home life is, though, Josh adores his family, and he couldn’t bear it if Clint couldn’t get along with them. He reluctantly takes Clint home for Christmas, and chaos ensues. Will Clint be able to handle it, or will Josh lose the man he loves?

Check it out! πŸ˜€


Works in progress

As everyone knows, we have a “Coming Soon” widget on here to keep everyone apprised of what’s coming out in the near future. But I thought I’d give folks a little taste of what’s beyond that, things that we have in the works which haven’t been submitted yet but which we will (hopefully!) have accepted by our publishers. If anyone is excited about these, we’d love to hear from you! πŸ™‚

The second Blood Bathory novel is completed and we’re doing our edits before submission. This one is pretty cool, featuring several new characters in addition to Will and Ian. Elizabeth isn’t out of the picture yet, and we reveal more of her backstory – as well as a new villain who is possibly even more frightening.

We’ve started the first of what we hope will end up being a new series of novellas, centered around men who served together in a paramilitary outfit and are now working together in civilian life. Dangerous situations and action are featured in addition to romance!

Speaking of novellas, we have plans for a few more stories in the Recipe for Romance series, so if you love Stephen, Robert, and some of their friends from Montgomery House, you haven’t seen the last of them! Stephen and Robert may have gotten their chance at happiness at last, but Stephen still has Things To Say about how other people should live their lives, and Robert is right there with him to try to smooth things over when the situation gets rough. Our snarky chef and ninja-cupid take to the road, and Mouth of the South starts its first season – but will disaster strike when the very first episode features rival cooks who have carried a grudge against each other since high school, and who both are determined to win the title of Best Barbecue in the South?

We also have a stand-alone novel in the works, where a gay man who is suddenly thrust into fatherhood finds that coping is tough – at least until a handsome pediatrician decides to step in and lend an unexpected hand.

Beyond those, we have Blood Bathory 3, which is shaping up to be a wild ride, and we’re currently tossing around ideas for another stand-alone novel, this one in an unusual setting. And of course we have a list of plot bunnies a mile long!

There is much more to come from Ari McKay in the future – and we hope everyone will be as happy to read our new works as we are to write them!

Robert Logan has been in love with his boss, Executive Chef Stephen Pierce, for years, but Stephen has never indicated being interested in Robert – or anyone else. With his birthday approaching, Robert starts to feel that life is passing him by, and his friends urge him to start dating other men. Yet Rhys, Clay, Darius, and Max have a plan to get Stephen to notice Robert as a man – can they manage to bring Robert and Stephen together at last, or will their scheme backfire and make Stephen’s volatile temper explode?

We’re very excited about telling Stephen and Robert’s story at last. Much of the feedback we’ve received on the previous three books in the series has contained an appeal for us to tell their story. So our snarky Executive Chef and his loyal PA are finally taking center stage.

On the surface, Robert Logan seems like nothing more than the perfect personal assistant, but there are hidden depths to him that he hasn’t wanted anyone else to see. His loyalty to Stephen seems absolute, but Robert is a man with needs, and in the six years he’s worked for Stephen, the irascible chef hasn’t shown any sign of being aware of Robert as a man.

Stephen Pierce has issues with a capital “I” – anyone who’s been around him for more than five minutes can figure that out. Everyone knows that Robert is the only one who can keep Stephen in line – even Stephen! For six years Robert has been his touchstone, his conscience, the one person Stephen is truly worried about driving away. Yet Stephen is hiding something as well, something not even Robert suspects.

Enter Rhys, Clay, Max, and Darius. The four men know that they owe their happiness to Robert (and even Stephen!) helping them to get past misunderstandings and insecurity. They want to help Robert and Stephen find their own happiness… but will their efforts bring the two men together, or push Stephen past his breaking point and ruin Robert’s chances forever?

Please enter the giveaway! We hope everyone will be as excited about this story as we are!
