Nicknamed ‘Cowboy’ for the boots and hat he favors Hugh MacPherson has worked at UNLV as an assistant track coach for the past five years. An itch that couldn’t be scratched has grabbed hold, so during a semester break in school Hugh books a tour to the land of his ancestors in Scotland.

 

A small time forgotten castle is home to Laird Graeme Guthrie.  The significance of his home are the Pictish standing stones within the castle grounds.  Periodically Graeme allows a group of tourist to invade his home and gaze at the stones as a way to keep the taxman at bay.

 

Coming to Scotland, exploring his roots Hugh is looking for something he isn’t sure of.  As for Graeme he has a long standing responsibility to his home and a legend taught down the ages to each laird of the Guthrie stones.  Fate brings them together at the winter solstice to fulfill a destiny kept waiting long enough.

 

Kindred spirits are joined in mystery.  An American greenhorn lends a hand to a Scottish laird in need in Cowboys and Kilts.  A dangerous puzzle unfolds for the fated lovers to explore and ultimately find answers.  Each piece of the mystery slowly comes to light, but unfortunately the answer is somewhat anti-climatic.  Cowboys and Kilts features engaging characters, smoldering passions, and a mystery that isn’t as great as Hugh and Graeme’s romance.

Veterinarian technician Carlton ‘Carl’ Donahue absolutely loves the job he does at San Mirabal Zoo, especially when he works with the big cats. The only downside to his career choice is the extreme allergies he deals with each and every day.

 

What the zoo considers a male cheetah in the enclosure is actually Zyl, a Were-Kind.  He is there at the zoo to investigate rumors that a protest group plans to stage an intervention by letting the wild creatures free.  That would be disastrous for the public and animals on so many levels.

 

When Carl and Zyl cross paths all bets are off, the magnetism is instant.  They will need each other’s help to divert a disaster and Zyl is certain that he can help Carl with his allergy issues in a way the human never expects.  Human, Were-Kind, and protestors are about to clash.  Secrets will come out and lives will change forever.

 

Catastrophe pops with excitement and mysteries.  Carl is stunned by one surprise after another, personal and professional.  Zyl is an enigma until Carl breaks through.  A fast, energetic read, Catastrophe is simply and perfectly entertaining.

A hostage situation went beyond sour and police officer Ray Nixs is haunted by the tragic outcome.  Even with therapy Ray isn’t sure he’s ever going to get past the nightmare and return to the force.

In an attempt to get Ray doing something worthwhile with his time his partner on the force sets up a babysitting/security job for him with an out and proud rock star.  Funny thing is – Ray knew rock god Lautrel Jennings when he was Laurence Jennings and they both went to Luther High school.  And, it seems Lautrel remembers the cop as well.

The rock star isn’t convinced he’s got a stalker but he’s thrilled to spend more time with Ray.  Even admits to Ray that he had a thing for the jock and would love to get to know him better now that they’re both adults.  As teens they never stood a chance, maybe now they do.  Lautrel’s stalker doesn’t like Ray…at all.

Burning Up the Sheets offers readers an entertaining story that has more and more layers as the chapters fly.  The witty dialogue, realistic characters, and their sexual encounters make Burning Up the Sheets truly sizzle.  Ray is dealing with understandable demons, he needs Lautrel’s unfettered personality in order to get some much needed perspective.  Add in a dash of suspense and watch Burning Up the Sheets ignite.

It has been almost a year since Ricky Marcel struck out from Bourbon, Kansas for the bright lights of stardom in Hollywood.  A low paying server job and a pair of sweet roommates have kept Ricky from calling it quits so far, though it is getting harder to believe he’s going to someday make it.

Ricky finally gets his big break when his agent sends him to an audition for a new gay gigolo reality series called Bought and Sold.  He seals the deal with his innate, naïve charm and then catches the eye of the show’s producer Drake Hardy.  From a recently struggling single, Ricky is thrust into the limelight with a rich and powerful Dom at his side.  Keeping true to his values or selling his soul to the devil that is tinsel town is the choice Ricky faces.

Eroticism and the price of fame is the name of the game in Just a Gigolo by multi-talented author A.J. Llewellyn. Sizzling hot sexual encounters are matter of fact when auditioning or filming a gay reality show which is a real eye opener for a tender mid-westerner.  Watch as Ricky is taken in hand by a strong Dom.  Just a Gigolo features plenty of sexual hijinks that luckily balance with a character who ensnares your heart with his integrity and charm.  Hot, heavy, and a big pinch of sweetness.
