Throwback Thursday – An Endless Sea of Stars

Stars cover small

For Throwback Thursday I’m showing some love to An Endless Sea of Stars, my first foray into writing an m/m science fiction story. Though I’d call it sci-fi “lite” as it’s Earth-based and heavier on the romance instead of spaceships. 🙂

AN ENDLESS SEA OF STARS:
23,375 words

BLURB:
The year is 2121. While Earth has conquered exploration of the Milky Way, we have yet to develop an interstellar engine to take us beyond our own galaxy. Thus the Intergalactic Exploration Alliance and the Gemini Project were formed.
Lieutenant Tobias Dekker is fresh out of the IEA academy and determined to be assigned to the Gemini engineering team. Putting career above all else. He knows from experience that relationships have no place in the Alliance.

Commander Caden Flynn is equally determined to see the Gemini prototype take flight to uncharted space. The engine is his late father’s design and he wants nothing more than to be the test pilot that breaks the next light speed barrier.
Two men dreaming of a sea of stars find that it’s instead an ocean here on Earth that brings them together.

Can Cade convince Toby to open up his heart and take a chance on love and explore the universe with him, side by side?

4 STARS for Broken Soldier!

Broken cover 6x9 SMALL

4 STARS! Many thanks to April at Crystal’s Many Reviewers!

“When Shawn is called to go undercover in a gun runners house as his new boy toy he is up for the job.  What they don’t know is that this particular bad guy does to make sure his toys stay loyal is to get them hooked on drugs.

Connor is not only Shawn’s partner at work, he is also his other half.  So when Connor is called to get a job in security at one of the establishments owned by said bad guy. It’s the job and that’s what they do, make the world a safer place.

Yet when Shawn shows all the signs of addiction within the first few days, Connor wants him pulled.  He is worried that they will find him dead of an overdose.   Shawn being the professional that he is demands to finish the mission.  Yet when he gets the information needed, he still goes back in. Says if he disappears now they will just change the meeting time and it will all be for nothing.

When everything is said and done, Shawn is hooked up to machines, with Connor holding his hand.  Can Connor bring Shawn back to the man he was before this mission started?  Will their relationship survive Shawn’s guilt of what happened?

This is a graphic story that deals with raw and dangerous sex and drugs.  It’s a good solid read but not if you want a light fluffy happy story.  I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a more dark criminal story, with sex and love not always at the same time!”

Throwback Thursday – Memory’s Prisoner

Memory's Prisoner final cover

For Throwback Thursday I’m showing some love to Memory’s Prisoner. This book was a big step for me. I hadn’t written anything in several years and my previous publisher had closed their doors. I challenged myself to get back in the game and find a new publisher. And I completed my goal, writing the book and landing at Dreamspinner Press. 🙂  And I’ve continued to write steadily ever since! (Available at Amazon, ARe, B&N, Kobo, Scribd and the DSP store)

They both survive, but Joey’s long-term coma and memory loss will change their lives – and love – forever.

For Throwback Thursday I’m showing some love to His Fragile Heart. It was a year ago yesterday that it was first published in the Finding Love anthology Carly Rose put together to benefit The Trevor Project.

Throwback Thursday – Out of the Shadows

1819782

For Throwback Thursday I’m showing some love to Out of the Shadows. This book means a lot to me as it was born out of my Citizen Police Academy classes, where I spent time with the K-9 Unit and also learned how under-reported cases of male/male domestic abuse are. An idea took shape in my head and suddenly Shane and Tyler came to life. 🙂

OUT OF THE SHADOWS:

45,000 words

BLURB:

For K-9 Officer Shane Walker, transferring from the Tulsa police department to the elite L.A.P.D. was a dream come true. He nearly forgets he’s in Hollywood until he responds to a 911 call that brings him to the home of actor Tyler Donovan.

It appears that Tyler has it all – a career that’s on fire and a loving, long-term relationship with his partner, Alex. But then Shane uncovers the truth that Tyler had been trying to hide, and the illusion comes crashing down.

Can Shane help Tyler break free of a life he’s convinced he deserves before it’s too late, and in the process help them both find love?
