I feel like I've been waiting forever to share this first book in the Zero Hour series with you. Royce Locke and Sawyer Key have so many layers, and I love peeling them back one by one to see what's beneath.

I so hope you'll take this journey with me. What's not to love about two reluctant partners, sexual tension galore, and a city on the verge of chaos? Need more convincing? Here are some teasers.

Until next time, happy reading...

New M/M Romantic Suspense Series Announcement

The Zero Hour is upon us! 

For those of you who aren’t in my Facebook reader’s group or don’t follow me on Facebook, I have exciting news. I decided to take a very brief detour back to writing romantic suspense because it is my passion. Those are the books I want to read, and they are the books I write from my soul.

Zero Hour is a trilogy featuring Royce Locke and Sawyer Key—two very different men who become partners on the Savannah Police Department. Both men are in various phases of grief in their lives, and their reluctant partnership will turn into something quite beautiful. Newsletter and blog subscribers are the first to see the cover for the first book, Ground Zero. Both the cover and logo are courtesy of Jay Aheer with Simply Defined Art and the image is courtesy of Wander Aguiar.


Ground zero, noun: the center or origin of rapid, intense, or violent activity or change.

Heat, humidity, and homicide are things veteran detective Sawyer Key expects to encounter on his first day with the Savannah Police Department, but the hostile reception from his new partner catches him by surprise. Sawyer isn’t a stranger to heartache and recognizes that Royce Locke is a wounded man who’s reeling from a devastating loss. Relentless and patient in all things, Sawyer is determined to make the new partnership work.

Savannah, Georgia is known for her quirky people, oak trees draped in Spanish moss, and antebellum architecture. Beneath the Southern charm and hospitality, festering hatred and violence is soaring with the summer temperatures. Locke and Key find themselves at the epicenter when their first case involves the death of a former shock jock who appears to be the victim of vigilante justice.

Opposites in nearly every way, the two detectives set aside their differences to take back their city and restore law and order. From this reluctant truce, an intense attraction grows that will either tighten or shatter their tenuous bond. Falling for his partner spells inevitable disaster, but Sawyer’s always been a sucker for wounded things. Sawyer could be the key to the life Royce has always wanted, if he’s brave enough to trust him. The fuse is lit, the clock is running, and the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock.

Ground Zero is the first book in the Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. Ground Zero has a happy-for-now ending with no cliffhanger. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.

Here’s my promise to you: each book in the series will have a happy-for-now ending as Royce and Sawyer’s relationship evolves. NO cliffhangers. I know most of you hate them, and I’m listening. I decided to shake things up a bit and challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone. Book one is told entirely from Sawyer's point of view, which is something I've never done. Book two will be told from Royce's point of view, and book three will be told from both points of view. I hope you’re as excited as I am for this series.

Ground Zero will release around September 21st. I’m rolling out teasers and opportunities to win copies of the book in my Facebook reader’s group. Below is my linktree site that has all my social media links in one place. We’d love to have you join the reading group. I do have screening questions because it’s a judgment-free zone. You can name a book of mine you’ve read or let me know you’ve found the group through the newsletter or blog.

Until next time, happy reading!

Blissville, Rogues, and Audiobooks...Oh My!

I could possibly be the worst author when it comes to updating their blog and sending out newsletters. Or, I wisely jam pack each update with lots of goodies. I’ll let you decide. 😉

Latest Blissville News:
In case you missed it (because I didn’t send a newsletter), Prescription for Love featuring Dr. Trent Love and hunky fireman Tucker Garrison is now available to buy or download through KU.

Here’s the link to check them out.

Latest Queen City Rogues News:
I just revealed the cover and blurb for book three on my other social media platforms. I’d like to point out that the handsome cover model for Beautiful Trauma is none other than Joel Leslie, who is the most talented audiobook narrator on the planet. That’s my opinion, and I’m sticking with it. More about Joel in the audiobook news section. I’m looking at a mid-July release, most likely the 18th.
Does trauma define or motivate a person?

Homeless and rejected, Henry Sullivan arrived on the doorstep of Ryan’s Place with nothing but the clothes on his back. Life as he knew it was over. Within those walls, Henry found the encouragement and love needed to turn hopeless into hopeful. Enrolling for summer classes at his community college was the first step toward achieving the dreams he thought were lost to him. There was just one little snag: the professor standing in the front of the room taught Henry the true meaning of human sexuality.

After a crushing breakup, Professor Ezra Meyer moved to the Queen City for a fresh start where everything was new—job, home, and friends. His first challenge: prove the benefits of his biology of human sexuality course outweighed the controversy. Ezra agreed to teach the class during the summer semester at a community college associated with his university to gauge interest. There was just one little problem: Ezra had personally demonstrated the unit on Sexual Technique and Behaviors with one of his students.

Random or Fate?

It was supposed to be a harmless hookup on a night when Henry was celebrating his birthday and Ezra was trying to ease his loneliness. Fast forward six months later, the attraction blazed hotter than ever, but acting on it could have dire consequences neither man was willing to risk. Or were they? Could true love be Henry and Ezra’s ultimate reward, or were they destined to become just another sad lesson learned?

Beautiful Trauma is a story about triumph over tragedy, embracing the unexpected, and a reminder that family is more than biology. Are you looking for a feel-good romance with witty banter, toe-curling passion, and a story that stays with you long after the final page? Look no further. Beautiful Trauma is the third book in the Queen City Rogues series but reads as a standalone book. It contains sexually explicit material and colorful language and is intended for adults 18 and over.

Latest Audiobook News:
The latest audiobook release is Circle of Darkness co-written with Nicholas Bella and narrated by Joel Leslie:

The second book in the series, Circle of Truth, also co-written with Nicholas Bella and narrated by Joel Leslie releases later this month, but can be pre-ordered here:

Big announcement! I have signed a contract with Tantor Audio to produce the audiobooks for the rest of the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries and Road to Blissville books. Currently, the first two books in both series are available on audible. I’m honored to work with a company like Tantor and so excited to get these books to the fans faster than I could do this on my own. Thank you so much, Tantor.

I’m excited to announce that I’m a featured author with the Gay Romance Readers Club. You can check out all the details right here:

Broken Halos, the first book in the Queen City Rogues series is now live!

Oliver Knight’s past is shrouded by sorrow and tragedy, but instead of hiding from it, Ollie owns his truth and uses his experiences to uplift others. As an out and proud pastor, he provides a safe place for LGBTQ Christians to gather and worship, and as a recovering addict, he counsels those pursuing sobriety. Ollie’s life is fulfilling but also a little lonely. He may not have a hard time meeting men, but he does have a hard time getting them to stick around once they discover his vocation.

Archie White is a former drag queen who hung up his stilettos to start an HIV transition home in the memory of someone he held near and dear to his heart. All work and no play has made Archie a very dull man, but he thinks his luck is about to change when a friend introduces him to a dark-eyed stranger. That is until he learns the man is a pastor. Archie detests anything to do with religion, and for very good reasons.

Archie’s gut tells him to run, and Ollie’s heart tells him to pursue. What can a pastor and a sometimes-queen possibly have in common? A desire to find unconditional love with someone who truly sees them. What happens next is the poignant, sweet, and sexy journey for two resilient hearts. Ollie and Archie ’s halos might be battered and a little tarnished, but they’re definitely not broken.

Broken Halos is a charming story with heart, heat, and humor. Warning: these characters and their quirky sidekicks may take up permanent residence in your heart, so proceed with caution. Each book in the Queen City Rogues series can be read as part of the series or as a standalone novel. This book contains sexually explicit material and colorful language intended for adults 18 and older.

I know some of you aren't too sure you want to read a book with a pastor as the main character. Please believe me when I say that Ollie isn't preachy. The themes in this book are love, acceptance, forgiveness, having faith in yourself when you've lost it in the world, and honoring the chosen family. Who among us can't relate to those themes?

These guys might sound familiar but you can't quite place them. Ollie and Archie were both introduced in This Time Around. Some are asking if it's necessary to read my Blissville books before starting this series and the answer is a resounding no. This series can definitely be read on its own merits. I hope you'll give Ollie and Archie a chance because their love warms my heart as no other couple has before them. Still unsure? Check out the free sample feature through Amazon to see if the book appeals to you.

Willing to give it a go? Click here to purchase or read on Kindle Unlimited:

I'm back in my office hard at work on the next Road to Blissville book for Romeo, the silver fox superintendent, and  Julius, the much younger chemistry teacher. I'm planning for a January 2019 release and will provide more details once they're available.

Smoke in the Mirror releasing July 12, 2018!

I am so excited for Memphis to get his happily ever after on July 12th. He was one of those characters that came out of nowhere and stole my heart. He deserves a love as beautiful as his soul, and the right guy finally showed up in Blissville.

Here’s the blurb…

Memphis Sullivan thought he was coming to Blissville to help his cousin out, but instead, he gained three meddlesome females, a tribe, and a permanent home. More than a year later, he owns a popular comic book and vinyl record store and doesn’t think his life could get any better. That all changes when the star of his favorite television show and bad-boy fantasies rides into town and spices up his vanilla world.

Lyric Willows’ decision to visit an old friend in Blissville will change his life in ways he never dreamed possible. The paranormal investigator is immediately drawn to the mysterious disappearance of the town’s founder in 1850 and rumors that his former home is haunted. More alluring to Lyric than the history of Bliss House is the immediate connection he feels to the adorably geeky owner of Vinyl and Villains, who also happens to be his friend’s cousin.

Lyric becomes Memphis’s houseguest when he decides to stay in town to conduct a paranormal investigation. Tight spaces lead to sexy encounters, and before long, ghosts aren’t the only things that go bump in the night. The more they unravel about Anthony Bliss’s disappearance, the more tangled in one another they become. How is it possible for two virtual strangers to feel like they’ve known each other for their entire lives? Was their love written in the stars, or is it nothing more than an illusion?

Smoke in the Mirror is the fifth book in the Road to Blissville series. Each book can be read as a standalone book or part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.

Need more enticement? Check out these teasers…

Are you ready to get your hands on this book? Here is the universal preorder/buy link: 

I hope you will love Lyric and Memphis as much as I do!
