Here's what it's about:


Chemistry off the charts—but is that enough?

Tom Langley and Sean Goods work together in a human-and-wolf shifter partnership, assisting the police, rushing in to solve crimes wherever their bosses send them. They're a great team, and they have fun together, too: joking and enjoying each other's company in a way that doesn't happen every day. 

Tom is also a married man. And his husband hates the wolf shifter with a passion. Tom tries to balance the sides of his life—one minute on a high-pressure chase with Sean, the next placating his husband Lowell. 

Then the unthinkable happens: his marriage ends. Heartbroken, he's not expecting to ever get over Lowell's betrayal or to be able to love again. 

Sean offers a solution: sex as friends. They have chemistry, and they trust each other. 

But can they change their partnership that much? And is Sean secretly harboring feelings for him—expecting more than just sex? 

Sean is a loveable, funny, strong, and protective. He's the best buddy a guy could have. But Tom might not be able to keep from breaking his heart—if Sean is in love with him, and Tom can't love him back.

Excerpt: 

I walked up to him and dug my hand into the ruff of his neck, grounding him. He'd started to shake from the tension. The whole case, the little girl's life, it all rested on his shoulders right now, and there was no escaping that in any form. 

"C'mon, bud. You'll be all right. Want a drink?" 

He hesitated. 

I nudged him with my knee. "While the air clears." I started to reach into the backpack for a bottle of water. I always brought some with us, especially in the heat. He could get dehydrated if he wasn't careful. 

He shook his head, pushing past me, moving on, at first without any assurance, and then more confidently. He was moving off the road now, casting around in the grass on the verge and the bushes. I couldn't see any tire marks. 

All of a sudden he gave off an arf that told me to hurry up, and off he dashed into the undergrowth. 

What the hell? Well, I wasn't going to doubt him. 

I looked back at the men. "We're close. Radio for backup. And remember we're probably dealing with a hostage situation." 

We could all hope the girl was alive, anyway. He'd damned well better hope she was. Whoever he was. 

I saw one of them lifting the radio to call in more people. Then I charged into the undergrowth after Sean.

Wes and Kit





Wes and Kit


Wes has a soft heart—even if it is a gear heart from when he was mechanicalized during the war. Now close to homeless and in desperate straits, he still finds himself taking on a stray dog—and helping out an injured man he stumbles across in an alleyway.


That's how he meets Kit. A harmless, gentle clock repairman with a heart condition of his own, Kit is in danger…because he's working on a certain clock.

He hires Wes to protect him until the danger is past…whatever its cause. But they find their feelings for each other are becoming too strong to ignore, despite the danger.

When a chance to solve the mystery presents itself, Wes finds he might just lose the man he's come to love…if he can't find Kit in time.

My steampunk stories

They are, perhaps more accurately, "steampunk related."  The steampunk elements are somewhat light compared to the romance.  :-)







Like A One-Eyed Cat

Jimmy's not good at trusting people. He grew up a chimney sweep and starving alleyway scruff. Even now, fully grown and an army veteran to boot, he's half-wild and only trusts one man, "the boss," a gentle man he works for occasionally. Jim certainly never intends to trust anyone else, but then he ends up working an investigation job for the boss next to a scarred ex-soldier with surprisingly gentle ways.


A touch of mystery, low sexiness, light steampunk elements.

Gear Heart

Living with a gear heart made from magic and machinery, Auden knows his lifespan will be shortened. Now a second-class citizen, he's part of the household of Dr. Gregory—the man who stitched him back to life years ago during the war. And now Dr. Gregory is being threatened.

A friendly (sometimes too friendly) police officer named Owen is assigned to help protect the aging doctor. Auden could resent the policeman who's come to help with security. Instead, he finds himself drawn to the attractive, flirtatious Owen, who somehow doesn't let Auden's cold nature scare him away. And that holds a different kind of danger for Auden's heart.

His Kind of Home



Jack hates the new gardener. Matt was hired by the wizard to repair Jack's hacking efforts. He's also blond and perfect, with good looks that make Jack feel uglier than dirt—and fill him with a strange longing. 

Jack has never fit in anywhere, belonged anywhere. Hired straight from the orphanage, used to fighting for survival, he's always longed for family and love. 

Now gentle, magical Matt seems willing to be his friend—or more than a friend? 

The arrival of caravan travelers turns Jack's life upside down. They might just be his true family—a family that actually wants him. 

Could this be his first real chance at belonging? And if so, where does Matt fit in his new life?
