Synopsis

Assured Elites pairs hot gay celebrities with their ideal match. But have they found the case that spoils their perfect record?
Pop singer Mikel loves brilliant older men. He's having trouble meeting his celebrity crush, but he knows the matchmaking service can put the two of them together. So why do they insist he try a date with the hot doctor instead? This Curt guy with the silken hands is miles out of his league.
Top-flight neurosurgeon Curt can save lives, but he can't seem to find that fabled work/life balance. His coworkers take matters into their own hands and sign him up with Assured Elites. A fun date or two with a young pop star could show Curt there's more to life than long hours in the emergency room.
Everybody knows Curt and Mikel are made for each other. Everybody except them.
A Hotter Fire is a steamy romance that features an age gap, a doctor with gifted hands, a million-dollar toy, and a mysterious store that can disappear in a cloud of fog at a moment's notice. Always a guaranteed happy ending, and absolutely no cheating or cliffhangers.
Each novel in the Assured Elites series deals with a different couple. Feel free to start anywhere and to read them in any order. The trilogy includes A Fiercer Heat (Book 1), A Higher Flame (Book 2), and A Hotter Fire (Book 3).

Synopsis

It takes more than a doctor to mend a broken heart.
Ollie Warne is fresh out of nursing school and working his dream job as a pediatric cardiology nurse at St Cross Children's Hospital, London. He wants to start the new year free of personal heartache after his track record of falling for the wrong man--his New Year's resolution is to live a life of carefree liaisons from now on.
He immediately meets Jacob, father of one of Ollie's patients and a man harboring more guilt and past demons than even Ollie, which is saying something...
Their growing attraction makes it hard for Ollie to keep his distance, but he has to. Not only do the ethics of his profession demand it, but Ollie is entangled with another man--a predatory doctor who has a huge personal and professional stake in Ollie's life.
Ollie risks more than his job by getting involved with a patient's father--and much more than just the success of his New Year's resolution, something that was supposed to ensure that, this time, he won't feel a thing.

The Oberon Cycle: Book Two

Sometimes the world needs saving twice.

In the sequel to the Rainbow-Award-winning Skythane, Xander and Jameson thought they’d fulfilled their destiny when they brought the worlds of Oberon and Titania back together, but their short-lived moment of triumph is over.

Reunification has thrown the world into chaos. A great storm ravaged Xander's kingdom of Gaelan, leaving the winged skythane people struggling to survive. Their old enemy, Obercorp, is biding its time, waiting to strike. And to the north, a dangerous new adversary gathers strength, while an unexpected ally awaits them.

In the midst of it all, Xander’s ex Alix returns, and Xander and Jameson discover that their love for each other may have been drug-induced.

Are they truly destined for each other, or is what they feel concocted? And can they face an even greater challenge when their world needs them most?
