“I learned a long time ago that nothing is free, not even help.” ~ Blaze

Almost getting killed in a gay bashing should have been one of the worst moments of my life, but with everything I've been through, it was just another day, except for the gorgeous man who stepped in to save me. There is something about Galen that draws me in and makes me want know him, and the more time I spend with him, the more I feel free to be myself. Galen doesn't seem to know what he wants, but I'm a man who stays true to himself, and Galen seems to be someone worth taking a chance on.

"Then you happened and all you have to do is touch me and I lose myself." ~ Galen

I never thought I'd stumble on an attempted murder, but that's exactly what happened one night while I was trying to get home. After chasing away the assailants and helping the enigmatic young victim home I tried to put the incident out of my mind, but I couldn't get him out of my head. I might not have ever thought about being with a man before, but the more time I spend with Blaze, the more I learn about who I really am. Blaze has scars that run deep, but as he opens up to me I find myself questioning everything I thought I wanted, and wondering if I'm a good enough man to give him what he needs.

“I hated that I was like this, but after years of trying to work through it I was beginning to feel like I’d never be normal.” ~ Cody

Hiding the fact that I was in love with my best friend Isaac used to be the most complicated part of my day, until a chance meeting with a handsome stranger named Jonah sent my life into a tailspin. Scars from my past have stopped me from giving in to my desires for so long, but I’m done being afraid. I want both men. I just don’t know if I’ll be able to trust that anyone can love me.

“I knew it was a bit messed up, but there was no jealousy or envy when I thought of my men together.” ~ Isaac

I’ve loved Cody for as long as I’ve known him, but have always held back because of his past. Then I met Jonah and I knew there was no way I could choose between them. I want it all—the man I’ve loved for so long, and the one I’m quickly falling for. It’s not going to be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

“I wanted to believe it was all true, but I couldn’t push aside the fear that I was just a distraction until the two of them got together.” ~ Jonah

After having my heart broken I never thought I’d find love again. I wasn’t looking for anything real, and then I met not one, but two men I can’t resist.

After seeing Zander in the crowd while I was dancing, I knew I had to meet the handsome stranger who took my breath away.

"It didn't matter what I wanted. My life had never been about me or my wants. Why would that change now?" ~ Rhys

Three years ago I lost my sister to cancer, and my life was shattered. I lost everything I loved and have been existing ever since. It wasn't until I met my new family at The Den that I began to feel whole again, but there was always something missing.

It isn't until a chance meeting with shy and sweet Caleb that I'm finally able to open up and let someone see the real me.

“Keeping my bisexuality a secret hasn’t been easy, but after years of hiding who I am, the thought of coming out terrifies me.” – Noah

Being the shy, introverted twin hasn’t always been easy. I don’t make friends easily, or deal with crowds well. I’d come to terms with being alone, until Jesse was hired on at The Den.

I wanted him. He was the most beautiful person I’d ever seen, but as the token “straight” guy at the bar, there was no way that could happen without me having to disclose the fact that I was bisexual.

The more I get to know Jesse, the more I realize that I can’t keep living a lie. I want to be with Jesse, but in order to do that I not only had to come out, but also tell him that I'd never been in a relationship, and I was still a virgin.

“I was tired of running, but it had been my life for so long I wasn’t sure how to stop.” – Jesse

For years all I wanted was a normal life, but even after being banished from the polygamist cult I’d grown up in, it wasn’t meant to be.

Since escaping an abusive situation I’d been on the run, desperately trying to stay ahead of my past. Then I found myself working at a bar and suddenly things didn’t seem so bad. I loved the little family my coworkers had created. And then there was Noah.

There was something about him that drew me in, and it wasn’t his rock-hard body or intense brown eyes. He was sweet and kind, and very shy. He made me feel safe, and that was dangerous when this was supposed to be a temporary stop before I moved on.


***Holding on is a slower burn, 72k word opposites attract, hurt/comfort story featuring a workplace courtship, an MC who appreciates makeup and femme clothes, a bisexual virgin, only one bed, and some unexpected lingerie. It is book 5 of The Den Boys but can be read as a standalone.

I’ve been in a fog for the past year. Haven’t really felt like myself in the last six. ~ Tristan

Losing my best friend in a war I hadn’t understood, fighting for a military that had cast me out when I’d outlived my usefulness, had sent me on a path of self-destruction. Now, four years later, I had my life back on track. Or so it would seem. I had a job I liked at a bar where my coworkers had become my family, but there was always something missing that kept me from ever feeling true happiness. A trip back to my hometown to try and find closure was supposed to have been a promise I kept to a friend, but it turned into so much more the moment I met my best friend’s brother.

Max is the opposite of what I’d pictured and exactly what I’ve always wanted. I know I needed to keep my distance to keep him safe, but when he offers me a job at his family’s inn, I'm powerless to do anything other than agree.

It didn’t matter how hard I worked or how much I tried, I was always second best. ~ Max

After spending the last eighteen years living and working as a chef in New York City, I was back in my tiny hometown trying to restore and reopen my family’s inn. It was supposed to be a new chapter for me, a way to finally realize my dream of having my own kitchen, but coming back to the place I’d fled at seventeen wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Especially after I ran into my little brother’s best friend and impulsively asked him to help me with the renovations while he was still in town.

It’s obvious Tristan is grappling with demons few people could understand, but there’s something about the handsome and enigmatic man that makes me want to know what those demons are, and to help him chase them away

“I might have been part of my makeshift family, but I’ve always felt separate from them.” ~ Evan

On the outside it looks like I have it all. I own a successful business where my staff has become my family, and I’m able to give back to my community the way I’ve always wanted to. What people don’t see is how lonely my life is, or how much I yearn for a real connection.

At forty-four, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll never have my own family and am happy playing uncle to my best friend Dex’s kids. I’ve also accepted that Dex is straight, so we’ll only ever be friends. I may have been in love with him for over thirty years, but he was never mine to have.

“I’m not sure what I’m ready for, but I know I want this.” ~ Dex

Life as a single dad isn’t easy, and losing my wife in an accident two years ago has left a hole in my heart that no woman could ever fill. Between my responsibilities as a parent and my job as a detective, I’ve got my hands full.

But, it isn’t all bad. I’ve got my best friend Evan by my side, same as he’s been since we were eleven years old. He’s always been my rock, but lately I’ve started seeing him in a new light. I don’t understand my reactions to him, or the directions my thoughts have taken. I never thought I was anything but straight, or imagined Evan would be more than my best friend, until now.
