Publisher: Coming Together Married only 3 short years, Roy adored Jess, but he also had the habit of 'screwing up' occasionally. This time, it was a little more serious. Away for the weekend, he'd forgotten to pick up her suitcase, leaving her absolutely nothing to wear, for real. Or had he? Leaving the safety of the house, his excitement grows. Being ordered naked outside, where anyone could see him, sent a chill down his spine. Was it a chill of terror or sexual thrill? And, what else could Jess possibly have in store for him?
Jason Black has dreams. He’s had them all his life. The only trouble with his dreams are they came during the day, while he was awake, and they came true.
Oh, and another thing, he sees a vampire, often. He’d seen the vampire bent over the body in an alley, and that’s when his life really took a hard left.
You think Jason is crazy?
Most people do. He’s not. But, he is in trouble and the only one who can save him is Ayden Devlin, the vampire. Together, they have to stop a drug lord and his henchmen from going on a killing spree.
Can the two men work together? Will Ayden’s blood lust prove too big a problem to surmount? Will their feelings get in the way?
A flash of two men fighting filled Jason’s mind. They were here, in the alley. One seemed much taller, slim and agile—the long flowing black hair so familiar it took his breath. The calf-length leather coat swirled around the man’s legs as he tossed his adversary around like a rag doll. The other man, while not nearly as agile or muscular as the first, tried to escape the beating, but couldn’t break free. Twice, Jason saw the taller man slam the other into the rough brick wall with bone jarring force. The second time, the slim man’s face looked right at him and that twinge of recognition flared. No, not again. You’re not real.
His vision of the alley vanished only to be replaced by one he’d experienced before, months ago. The man’s long silken hair draped like a veil of midnight satin over a good deal of his face. Only the man’s eyes shone brightly through the strands, his irises the most amazing shade of amber Jason had ever seen. Upon closer inspection, the incisors gleamed as well, long, slender, knife-like fangs. The man-beast was naked, his pale flesh and sleek limbs knifed towards Jason from somewhere above.

Colt Willing never expected to be a key player in a drug-running operation. Before he can get out, he's determined to release the hold the organization has on Jonathan, the man he's grown to love.

Sometimes, it's the uninvited guests that make a dinner party more memorable...
"Mark, that's the weirdest theory I've ever heard." Charles leaned back until the high-backed chair he was sitting on creaked with strain. "People getting abducted by flesh eating aliens...you're crazy, my friend." He chuckled and shifted to let June, his wife of twenty-two years, place his second piece of apple pie on the table in front of him.
"It'd explain why there'd been so many unsolved disappearances over the last hundred years," Mark said, feeling more defensive than he liked to admit. The theory was outrageous, but it really did provide answers. "I mean, think about it, there are records of births, education, marriages, jobs, and suddenly those people vanish, as if they'd never existed. Their families don't remember them, the schools where they had to have gone show nothing, they simply aren't around anymore." He held his hand out and took the pie June handed him, nodding his thanks but otherwise ignoring her.
From the kitchen, Susan, Marks slightly overweight wife, yelled, "Mark, that's the last piece of pie you get, you're stomach's hanging over your belt. You'll be moaning all night with indigestion."
Raising his head, he rolled his eyes and replied, "Yes, dear, I know." He scowled at Charles, who broke up laughing at the interchange. It was the same comment she made every Friday night when the couple joined them for their weekly dinner and card game.
"I wonder," Charles said, then paused and gazed blankly out the window for a moment before going on in a dull voice. "How would they, the aliens I mean, how would they get rid of all the history: school records, marriage licenses, and what about the memories of wives or husbands, friends, children of the missing?"
