Thrilled to now have all six covers for our Samhain books. The titles should be up at Amazon and elsewhere soon. It takes a little time because the writer has to show proof that this previously published content belongs to her or him.
Anyway, here are covers for Gent’s Madness and Shepherd and Solicitor:
Some readers may know that Samhain Publishing closed it’s doors after many good years of providing books to readers. All of my titles have been returned to me and bit by bit I will be self publishing them. If links on this site don’t work, it’s for the very good reason that these books are no longer available–for now.
Summer and I have begun the process of re-releasing our joint titles. By the end of this week, all of them should be available at Amazon.
Here is some of the NEW cover art. All books are marked previously published at Amazon:
Today I want to announce the release of The Mighty Have Fallen.
Theatre headliner Trevor Rowland is at the peak of his career when disaster strikes. In one fell swoop, he loses his eyesight, his fame, and his boyfriend, who absconds with most of his money. Trevor must take on a flatmate, hardworking East Ender Jack Burrows, to afford the rent. Anger and bitterness have taken up residence in his heart—but Jack shines light into the shadowy corners with his relentlessly sunny disposition.
Jack introduces Trevor to a local drag club and convinces him he can enjoy the stage again. Trevor’s defences slowly come down as Jack becomes much more than a barely tolerated roommate.
But will Trevor’s fragile trust be destroyed when it appears he’s been manipulated yet again by a man he’s come to care for? Will he reclaim his life or crawl back into a shell of defeat? Trevor must learn to trust not only a man, but himself, once more.
I haven’t written a gay contemporary since The Au Pair Affair. It was a pleasure taking a break from historical romance for a beat, but I am returning to period pieces with The Fortune Hunter and The Masterpiece, hopefully to be released sometime in the coming year.
Currently taking some days to heal from carpal tunnel surgery, which is a real PITA as it stops me from doing all the fine motor skills things I want to do. I’ve binge-watched a lot of TV from House of Cards (finally) to Amazon Originals’ Sneaky Pete, which I’m currently enjoying. I don’t know what my attraction is to stories about con artists. No wait. Yes I do. It all stems from my childhood fixation on the Artful Dodger and too many viewings of The Music Man. My story The Fortune Hunter is firmly rooted in the con artist tradition. Here’s hoping it gets contracted by a major publisher soon–or rejected all around so I can self publish it. Hate being in limbo.
In time for Christmas, the entire series of Victorian Holiday Hearts (4 books) is available in one volume. Pick up a copy for a loved one who enjoys gay romance and they’ll think of you all year through. There are stories for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter/Spring, and Halloween. Available at Amazon and everywhere today!
SIMON AND THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
The holiday spirit has forsaken Simon Harris. A recent reminder of the man who used then left him sends lonely Simon on a glum visit to his club to while away a few hours. A breath of fresh air in the form of Christopher Andrews is about to enter his stale life. Simon and Christopher enjoy a few hours of pleasure together, never expecting to see each other again, but Simon’s newfound resolution to change might just transform both their holidays.
WILL AND THE VALENTINE SAINT
Will Andrews wishes to escape the craziness of his bohemian family and create some order in his life. Hiding his eccentric theater background and presenting false letters of recommendation, he interviews for a position at a legal aid society. The last thing he expects is to fall hard for his genteel employer, Hugh St. John. As the pair plans a Valentine charity dinner, they grow ever closer to surrendering to Cupid’s arrow.
MIKE AND THE SPRING AWAKENING
Young Micah “Mike” Cordett’s blunders into a trap in a seamy part of London and endures months of abuse before escaping. But with the help of the Andrews family, he’s begun to climb out of his fear. Yet, when a reminder of his happier past erupts into his life in the form of Lucas Spring, Mike’s not certain he’s ready to face the remnants of the charmed life he’d once enjoyed. He’s certainly not ready for love.
DELANEY AND THE AUTUMN MASQUE
Delaney, former pickpocket and now a member of the Andrews theater clan, performs magic tricks at a fancy dress ball where he is struck by the dramatic figure of the Grim Reaper. He follows Death to a quiet room for a glorious, lustful encounter. With his identity hidden, impoverished gentleman Bartholomew Bancroft dares to indulge in an out-of-character moment to quench his forbidden yearning for another man’s touch. But in the light of day, he can’t dismiss his memories of the mysterious magician or a craving to see him again.
