Call the Coroner
A clash of wills between predators…
He’s been living underground for a long time, but the only thing guaranteed to bring Daniel Nieto back to the surface is the identity of his wife’s killer. With the whisper of one name, he puts it all on the line for vengeance. He’s got plans for Stavros Konstantinou.
The title of monster fits too well for Stavros to want to be anything other than what he is. Time spent in Daniel Nieto’s dungeon, chained and tortured, will never change that. Starved of food, sunlight and freedom, he waits for an opening to turn the tables on the only man who’s ever come close enough to scare him.
Somewhere between the slide of knife against skin, and the drip of blood on cold concrete, things change. Grief and hatred collide with lust and obsession, and this time Daniel and Stavros are on the same side. This time, they’re fighting a losing battle against a connection forged by much more than a love of violence and bloodshed.
In a war this bloodied, what do you do when the bodies start hitting the floor?

Kiss Your Scars
Being the king of Atlanta’s underworld used to have its perks, but lately all undercover agent Renzo Vega has seen is the downside. Someone is auctioning off women in his city, and he’s damn sure not about to let that offense stand. Just as he’s set to make a move, Renzo’s club is ambushed and he’s shot. Unsure of who to trust, he turns to the one man he definitely knows wants him dead.
Yanked from his bed, blindfolded and spirited away in the middle of the night, Lowell Scott is shocked to find the darkly gorgeous Renzo bleeding and in need of his help. The very last thing he wants is to heal the man who gunned down his cousin and shattered his family. But there’s a knife to his throat and the promise of death in the criminal’s eyes.
Close proximity doesn’t temper the hatred Low harbors for Renzo, it only brings up new problems. Like the vicious attraction Low struggles to control, and bullets that won’t stop flying. It’s a tough sell to believe there’s anything good in a man as unapologetically dangerous as Renzo. And even if Low can forgive the unforgivable, Renzo is still shadowed in secrets. When they’re exposed, those secrets will bring far-reaching consequences that could sever not just their shaky bond, but Low’s family ties as well.
Retired from a life as a gun for hire, Kyo is looking forward to finally settling down with the man waiting forever to make a life with him. He can be somebody’s lover, somebody’s partner, somebody’s safe place. His life is good, until he’s introduced to his lover’s best friend.
Sage “Priest” Salfadie is an expert at playing the field, taking full advantage of his bisexual lifestyle. Life is good, until he’s introduced to Kyo. It’s an immediate thing, their connection. One they’ll ignore, deny and fight, until they can’t.
Betrayal turns Kyo and Priest into thieves. Every touch, kiss and moment together stolen. Priest wants more. Kyo can’t leave, but staying where his heart no longer resides gets harder and harder to do. Then comes the day when someone else makes the choice for them. In the aftermath of heartbreak, guilt and anger become easier to handle than their feelings for each other. Feelings that—although tempered by bitter scars—refuse to stay buried.
