Jake Bander lives alone and likes it that way. . . 

Jake is a bander, a type of shifter and a notoriously taciturn loner. As a boy, he was rescued by a man who ran an animal rescue preserve and now Jake runs the place. He's content keeping his secret, and accepts the truth: he'll always be a solitary creature. 

Vaughn Prentiss is a trust-fund baby--exactly the sort of summer visitor who gets on Jake's last nerve. Vaughn is only slightly shaken in his unruffled existence after an encounter with Jake, the cranky loner he's undeniably attracted to. 

Happy-go-lucky, rambling Vaughn plans to stay with his cousin at her beach house for a short time but his plans change forever when his cousin's husband leaves the country with the family fortune. 

When Jake offers the newly-poor Vaughn a job he immediately regrets his decision because he has trouble keeping his paws off his newest employee. To protect his shifter privacy, he needs Vaughn gone. And to help the man he's learning to admire, Jake takes on the job of tracking the lost fortune and danger. 

This is a reprint of a Samhain title.

A free read!

A Scent of Hope is a m/m historical about a man about to be hanged and the last letter he writes. . .

A FREE short story written as a part of the M/M Romance Group's "Love’s Landscapes" event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.

Dear Author,
I am getting really tired of the waiting. No one told me that waiting to die would be quite this boring. So to pass the time, I wrote a letter to my sister, but somehow my letter got to the wrong person. Who do I end up writing? Did I really commit the murder I will hang for? Can whoever my mysterious pen pal is get me out of the mess?

Photo Description:
A man in his early twenties looks scruffy in a bloodstained shirt covered by a dusty leather coat. His handsome face wears a slight smirk, which is odd, considering the very large noose around his neck.
