After demon elementals kill the good folks Sheriff Cali McCade has sworn to protect, the last place she expects to find herself is the future.

Cali McCade is happy being the only female sheriff in the West until evil destroys her town of Oblivion and everyone in it. But when a magical creature sends her forward in time, Cali gets a chance for justice—and to stop history from repeating itself.

Now, on the set of Harsh Reality, a television show that challenges average people to survive in historical settings, Cali isn’t just the sheriff of Oblivion—she also plays herself on TV. It isn’t easy to find her path in this new world, but at least she knows what her “character” would do… even if it’s a little strange to be navigating a blooming romance with the woman playing Arlene, her long-lost love.

When the elementals show up to destroy Oblivion all over again, can Cali find a way to defeat the demons, keep her cover, and still ride off into the sunset?

Fish in a Barrel

Fish Out of Water | Book Seven

Jackson and Ellery face their toughest case yet—against the criminal justice system itself.

Jackson Rivers and Ellery Cramer have worked difficult jobs before, but usually it’s getting the facts that’s the problem. For their newest client, the trouble isn’t finding the truth—it’s corruption at the highest levels of the justice system. It isn’t enough to find the actual perpetrator and unveil a heartless plot—not when the DA is the bad guy and he’s using cops as his goons. Keeping their vulnerable client alive and out of jail takes blood, sweat, and tears.

When one of their major antagonists is killed and the DA tries to pin the death on Jackson, he’ll need every ounce of luck and all his resources to clear his name—and to find the perpetrator before the DA can use the murder to further his own agenda. They soon find that it’s easier to spot an honest man in a field of thieves than it is to shoot fish in a barrel—and both the man and the fish will be lucky to survive….

People talk about the marriage of true minds, but Alexander doesn’t think this is what they meant.

After a cruel experiment binds him to the soul of Rota, an old god, Alexander has one mission: find Rota’s body. Having a godly boyfriend is great, but it would be better to have one that he could actually touch. Unfortunately, even Alexander’s ability to command Rota’s divine power hasn’t helped.

A rare book of poetry may finally provide the answer. The expertise they need translating it brings them to Oleander Logue, a young man with plenty of problems that seem at odds with his cheerful nature. Ollie is happy to help, but he’s in trouble with a gangster who demands that Alexander and Rota solve a series of murders first.

Desperate, Alexander and Rota accept the case… but it’s not that simple. The gangster’s threats to Ollie’s safety disturb them both, but is that because they’re both growing more attracted to Ollie… or because he’s a potential host for Rota? If they can’t solve these murders, they may never find out.

Er hatte nur zufällig Glück, als sein Bruder und er vor zehn Jahren nach Lang Downs kamen. Hier fand er den nötigen Halt, um die Schule abzuschließen und ein Studium zu beginnen. Aber er hätte nie gedacht, dass Lang Downs für ihn der sichere Hafen werden könnte wie für so viele der anderen, die hier ein Zuhause gefunden hatten. Dazu hatte er zu viel mitgemacht. Und seine Vergangenheit hatte Schäden hinterlassen. Niemand würde einen Mann mit seinen Problemen akzeptieren.

Den Rest seiner Zeit wollte er als Jackaroo arbeiten. Und er freute sich darauf, gelegentlich seinen Freund Seth zu sehen, auch wenn seine Träume von einer gemeinsamen Zukunft hoffnungslos waren. Seth war nicht schwul.

Seths überraschende Rückkehr nach Lang Downs ist für Jason ein zusätzliches Geschenk.

Long Con Adventures

A Long Con Adventure

Two and a half years ago, Michael Carmody made the biggest mistake of his life. Thanks to the Salinger crew, he has a second chance. Now he’s working as their mechanic and nursing a starry-eyed crush on the crew’s stoic suit, insurance investigator and spin doctor Carl Cox.

Carl has always been an almost-ran, so Michael’s crush baffles him. When it comes to the Salingers, he’s the designated wet blanket. But watching Michael forge the life he wants instead of the one he fell into inspires him. In Michael’s eyes, he isn’t an almost-ran—he just hasn’t found the right person to run with. And while the mechanic and the suit shouldn’t have much to talk about, suddenly they’re seeking out each other’s company.

Then the Salingers take a case from their past, and it’s all hands on deck. For once, behind-the-scenes guys Michael and Carl find themselves front and center. Between monster trucks, missing women, and murder birds, the case is a jigsaw puzzle with a lot of missing pieces—but confronting the unknown is a hell of a lot easier when they’re side by side.

Domestic Do-over: Nicht öffentlich

Restoration Channel (Deutsch) | Book 1

Kann ein kratzbürstiger Zimmermann einem Reality-TV Moderator einen Weg zum Coming Out bauen?

Immobilienguru Brandon Chase weiß, was „familienfreundlich” in der Branche bedeutet, nämlich nicht offen über seine Sexualität zu sein.

Das Aus von Brandons Ehe ist immer noch in den Schlagzeilen, als der Restoration Channel ihm ein Angebot macht: Er soll eine Serie über den Verkauf von Häusern auf dem riskanten Markt von New York City moderieren. Brandon, der immer noch unter der schlechten Presse leidet, zögert, sich darauf einzulassen – bis er sich in ein altes viktorianisches Haus verliebt.

Doch das Haus ist nicht das einzige, das ihm ins Auge fällt.

Der Bauauftragsnehmer Travis Rogers hat die Aufgabe, all die Dinge aufzulisten, die beim Umbau und der Renovierung eines Hauses schiefgehen können, was zu einer Menge Streitereien am Set und zu beiderseitigem Frust führt. Doch als die unter der Oberfläche schwelende Anziehungskraft zwischen den beiden Männern auflodert, stehen die Sendung und ihre Beziehung auf dem Spiel.

Travis hasst das Medieninteresse, das Brandon verfolgt und der Sender hat in der Vergangenheit immer wieder LGBTQ-Persönlichkeiten entlassen. Wie die Häuser, die Brandon zum Verkauf renoviert, hat auch diese Beziehung Potenzial. Aber wenn Brandon Travis nicht überzeugen kann, ein Risiko einzugehen, bleibt die Chemie zwischen ihnen wohl nur auf der Leinwand.

As part of a military team, Crank needs to keep his head on straight. His unit depends on it. So the recurring sensual dreams he’s having—the ones featuring a shark shifter with dark brown hair and eyes—really screw with his focus. Especially since the shifter is a guy.

Exploring the growing connection between the three of them will have to wait, though. The upcoming mission demands the team’s full attention. They’re about to discover something huge, and they have badly underestimated the enemy….
