Ava Callaghan…A woman working in a male-dominated field. Organized, strong, and tenacious. That’s how she has to be to succeed. Hunter Owens…A loner. He needs no one, has no ties, and his future is an unanswered question mark. It’s all he knows. Until the day their lives intersect. He sees the woman she hides from the world. She nurtures the part of him he lost long ago. But they both agree—their connection is temporary. They are only for now. Can their stubborn natures allow them to bend and accept that maybe, just maybe, there is more to life than they believed? That love can heal. That happiness can exist. That for now can be forever.
Warren Gonzalez thinks he’s a player—the worst kind of player. Twelve years ago, he was a high school All-American athlete and prom king. Eight years ago, he was president of his fraternity and the big man on campus. When he arrived in Manhattan with a coveted job on Wall Street, he expected to take the Big Apple by storm and have hordes of beautiful ladies falling for his Texas charm. Warren was wrong. One bad experience after another have made him bitter and turned him into a world-class jerk. He’s in desperate need of a wake-up call— someone to come along and dropkick his overinflated ego before he hurts himself. Lacey Dillon is that someone. Lacey might be fresh out of college, but she’s not naïve in the ways of the world. When she signed up to work for Digby Financial Services, she expected to work side by side with men like Warren. Wall Street is crawling with his ilk. No matter how many times he swears he’s turned over a new leaf, she refuses every cheesy advance and puts him in his place. She wasn’t born yesterday. Players love a challenge. Lacey’s convinced he wants revenge for his daily rejection, and she’s got no time for shenanigans. But Warren’s just getting started. For the first time in his life, he knows what he wants, and he can’t give up without a fight. (Read the full blurb on Amazon)
When Brian strode away and climbed into his car, never looking back, and drove north to his hometown of Nevermore, he knew in an instant that he’d live to regret his decision. Brian: “I had promised everyone who cared about me, that I wouldn’t give in to my passion and urges to take care of young men ever again. After all, I’d turned forty, and what did I have to show for it? A husband who’d tired of me, my finances dwindling, and no one to share a life with. I drove away leaving Valentine standing at a truck stop, begging for cigarettes and a light. When I turned and he had gone, I knew I’d made a mistake, and I’d never see his sexy, beautiful, sad face again.” This is a heartfelt M/m romance, age play, hurt/comfort with humor.
It’s bad enough that a girl was taken from her hometown. But by a ship full of pirates? It’s actually the best thing that has ever happened to a charming young lady who yearns for freedom. Captain Maddox: We were trading more than thieving lately, as we tried to become more respectable. Pirates or not, taking a young lady aboard our vessel without her permission is the last thing we’d ever do. Yet now that Maggie was here and begging to be kept on board, I found myself needing to change for the better. Her auburn-tinged hair and wide blue eyes were captivating, but it was her sweetness that melted my heart. I needed to protect her, to show her that there were good men in this world. Hopefully, I could find a way to keep her safe in my arms forever. In my mind, she was already mine. Maggie: Being torn from my horrible old life was a blessing, of sorts. Yet learning the ways of a sailing vessel filled with men was strange indeed. The Captain seemed to be fine with letting me stay aboard… at first. He made me feel things I’d never dared to dream of. Strange, powerful feelings that roiled in my belly. Every time he touched me, I wanted to give myself to him completely. But the tides and the winds are fickle, and life isn’t always smooth sailing. I didn’t know what I would do if he didn’t feel the same way.
