New Release/Freebie – A Tidal Series Short: Southampton Sea Breeze

image

If you’ve read the Tidal and Speakeasy books, you already know our characters Carter Hamilton and Riley Porter-Wright.

Their books, Wake and Calm, were published in the summer of 2017 and Brigham Vaughn and I put together Southampton Sea Breeze, a FREE short story to mark that anniversary.

This short story can be read on its own, but it certainly has ties to the Tidal books, “Behind the Stick,” and the other Speakeasy books, so we suggest you enjoy them all 😉

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

“Behind The Stick,” Speakeasy 3, is live!

BehindtheStick_9781786518323_Ebook_1500x2400

Brigham Vaughn and I are truly excited that Behind the Stick, the third book in the Speakeasy, is live.

I’ve always liked Kyle McKee –he’s a stand up kind of guy who, while unassuming, is absolutely confident in his abilities. I fell in love with Kyle and his firefighter, Luka, while writing Behind the Stick and I think you will, too.

Blog Tour:

Be sure to follow the blog tour from August 19- 28. There will be exclusive excerpts, interviews, blog posts, and you’ll have a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card.

 

Love, served behind the stick.

Summary

Kyle McKee lives a charmed life. He co-owns Under, an uptown speakeasy, where he is chief mixologist. Friends poke fun at Kyle’s tiny one-bed apartment in Chelsea, but they’re the best support system a man could ask for. Unfortunately, Kyle’s lackluster love life has led him to take a break from dating.

Harlem resident Luka Clarke is a lieutenant with Engine 47, the Pride of Morningside, where he carries on his father’s legacy with the FDNY. Luka, who is mixed race and bisexual, has his eye on Kyle, whom he met at a local burger joint and he just needs to make time to visit Kyle’s bar.

Before work one evening, Kyle is trapped inside the luncheonette when a fire breaks out. Luka’s firehouse answers the call and he connects with Kyle again under the most unexpected of circumstances. When Kyle gratefully invites Luka and the firehouse squad to Under, the flirting between the two men leads to a date.

Kyle and Luka quickly grow close, but Luka’s mother and sister distrust Kyle for being both white and gay. Luka believes his family will come around and accept Kyle in the end, but Kyle is not optimistic and hides his disquiet as attraction blossoms into love.

Kyle and Luka’s near-idyllic bubble is shattered one evening after a hate crime leaves them scarred, inside and out. Shaken, they put on a strong front but struggle inwardly against fear and personal demons. As the emotions seething beneath the surface finally come to a head, both men must decide if they have the strength to find love enough to conquer hate.

Pre-Order — “Behind The Stick,” Speakeasy 3

BehindtheStick_9781786518323_Ebook_1500x2400

I speak often about how much I enjoy writing The Speakeasy books with Brigham Vaughn; the characters and their world have come to mean a lot to me. Behind the Stick, the third book in the series, is no exception.

Kyle McKee first showed up in my head while we were writing Calm, the second Tidal book. A skilled mixologist, Kyle befriended Carter Hamilton and, by extension, Jesse Murtagh, with whom he got on like ‘a house on fire.’ Kyle was charming, funny, and sincere, and a Yin of sorts to Jesse’s Yang.  Like Jesse, Kyle asserted himself so much, he practically asked us to give him his own story and we were more than happy to oblige. We were also thrilled to get to know Luka Clarke, a Lieutenant with the FDNY who catches Kyle’s fancy and threatens to run away with his heart.

Behind The Stick is available for pre-order and will go into general release on August 20. There’s a delicious excerpt on the book’s page here on my blog.

Love, served behind the stick.

New Release: “Extra Dirty,” The Speakeasy #2, is live!

ExtraDirty_9781786517098_Ebook_1500x2400Extra Dirty, Book 2 in The Speakeasy series, is out today! Brigham Vaughn and I are so excited to share Jesse Murtagh’s story with you. And wait until you meet Cam Lewis 🔥🔥🔥

Blurb:

Jesse Murtagh loves his life as a wealthy bisexual businessman dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure. With a circle of friends he trusts implicitly, he enjoys a successful career in his family’s business and as co-owner of Under, an uptown speakeasy, with his friend with benefits, Kyle McKee.

Music teacher and part-time DJ Cameron Lewis lives modestly in a DUMBO loft and isn’t interested in serious relationships. However, he’s always up for some casual fun.

Doing a favor for his friend Carter Hamilton, Jesse meets Cam and is immediately charmed. When Jesse discovers Cam’s other life as a DJ, he is further intrigued. Viewing Cam as a challenge, Jesse pulls out all the stops, but his usual methods to avoid serious relationships fail. Though Cam has no intention of becoming attached, he begins to fall for Jesse, unaware that Jesse’s feelings are changing.

Afraid of heartbreak, Cam pulls away, leaving Jesse bewildered and hurt. They remain friends until a series of misunderstandings widens the rift to breaking point. When Cam steps in to help Jesse through a family crisis, they realize they care for each other more than they’ve been willing to admit. Jesse and Cam don’t want a traditional relationship, but can they build a future that makes them both happy?

Pre-Order — “Extra Dirty,” Speakeasy 2

ExtraDirty_9781786517098_Ebook_1500x2400

Brigham Vaughn and I have been writing together for some years now, but I get super jazzed every time a book we’ve crafted gets closer to its release date. I’m definitely excited about Extra Dirty, which is Book 2 in The Speakeasy series.

The book’s working title was “On the Rocks” but, as luck would have it, a book by almost the same title was accepted only days before our manuscript. Brigham and I were undaunted, however, because we knew we’d find and even better title. We engaged in a furious round of posting in our book’s Slack channel and happened upon Extra Dirty without much trouble. Once we’d stopped laughing, we realized that it really was the perfect title and that Jesse Murtagh, one of our main characters, would be thrilled beyond all belief.

Extra Dirty is available for pre-order and will go into general release on March 26. There’s a delicious excerpt on the book’s page here on my blog.

Spooky FREE Halloween Reads

To celebrate Halloween, I’m posting two paranormal short stories – Moonlight, which is a solo effort, and Inked in Blood, a co-written project with Brigham Vaughn.

Moonlight

Ryen Justice lives a quiet existence in Sequim, Washington, running a successful horse farm with his twin brother and sister-in-law. Still, something nameless in him yearns for more.

An old barn on the farm becomes Ryen’s haven where he spends evenings watching the moon and stars. With Halloween approaching, he volunteers to decorate the barn for a party, knowing the job will guarantee him more time alone.

One night as Ryen labors, a man walks out of the woods. Ryen knows he should feel apprehensive, but he is intrigued by the dark-haired stranger who calls himself called Kamer. What Ryen doesn’t know is that lurking beneath Kamer’s handsome face lies something that could prove dangerous to both Ryen’s body and soul.

Inked in Blood

Jeff Holloway  is a twenty-five-year-old skater with a killer smile and lots of free time on his hands. He’s also a vampire who prowls the dark corners of San Francisco looking for entertainment and his next meal. Lately, he’s been spending lots of time watching a tattoo parlor in the Mission District where someone tall, artistic, and handsome has caught his eye.

Santiago Alvarez, the forty-three-year-old owner of Iron & Ink, has a huge secret. He lives a quiet life, finding joy in his career and his friends, but it’s caused him to shut himself off from dating and getting close to anyone romantically. When he bumps into Jeff on the sidewalk near his shop, he’s intrigued but hesitant to let anyone get close.

An unexpected event one night will change everything for both men, and neither of their futures will ever be the same.
