Ten years ago Steven’s life crashed around him when he found out his lover, Andy, had died in a car crash.  So he is stunned and suspicious when he comes across a man that is eerily familiar and claims to be Andy.  But once he is convinced that this man is his Andy, nothing will stop Steven from claiming Andy again as his own – not even Andy himself!

 

When Andy woke up from a coma to find his body broken, almost beyond repair he was flabbergasted to find out that his lover, Steven, who had professed undying love, walked away from him.  But Andy slowly recovered and his anger at Steven was a great motivator.  So when he comes across Steven again he is still hurt when Steven doesn’t recognize him but also stunned to learn that Steven had thought him dead all these years.

 

Now, to make this work Andy will need to let go of his anger at Steven and Steven will have to work at proving to Andy that his love for him never died.

 

Out of the Past is a heartwarming story about love lost and found, while also proving that true love will survive even after death.  Steven and Andy are men that have been damaged by the actions of their families and the lies they were told to keep them apart.  However, when they come together and choose to forget the past and its hurts in order to build a future, it is a quick, yet beautiful thing to see.  As readers have come to expect Sean Michael delivers a story with well-drawn characters and passion hot enough to singe your fingers.  Out of the Past is a great read full of love and passion perfect for readers who like their romance with a spice of angst ending in the perfect HEA.

Corbin Ford is following in the career path of his family as an international jewel thief.  His father was known as the Nightwatchman and never caught.  Corbin’s mother is still pulling off elaborate heists when boredom sets in.  She has no plans to retire at the moment like dear old dad.  Though Corbin has more than enough tucked away he’s not ready to walk away either.  In truth he’s recently resurrected the Nightwatchman to stump the police in Europe.

 

American Luke Eldridge joined Interpol’s Art Crimes Unit several years ago and calls a flat in London home.  Luke’s been assigned to a recent rash of high stakes break-ins all over Europe.  It has all the earmarks of the legendary Nightwatchman, yet there’s no way the thief could be the original after so many years.  He’s dubbed the criminal NW2 and been frustrated time and again because they’ve got nothing to go on.

 

The only positive in his life right now is Corbin.  It was supposed to be a simple hookup after a visit to his favorite gay pub, but day after day the two grow closer.  Neither is aware they are both lying about their jobs.  Luke and Corbin are playing a cat and mouse game of international drama without either being the wiser.  The truth will be a bitter pill to swallow.

 

A rich, intricate drama unfolds in Family Jewels.  Their intimate and detailed storyline will capture and hold the reader from the first page to the last.  Corbin and Luke breathe life into Family Jewels.  Doomed one way or another it’s a fascinating journey to the truth.  Family Jewels has strong, complex characters who honestly love each other and no way out.  Witty and agonizing throughout.   A real page turner.

It was the break Nikolai Vetrov dreamed for when the Chicago Wolves hockey team offered the enforcer a place in their lineup.  Nik’s abusive father moved the entire family from the Ukraine to Toronto hoping the enforcer would get noticed somewhere in the West.  His father was hanging his success on his son.

 

Olympic hopeful Emory Lowe is riding high from his U.S. National Figure Skating Championship win.  The out and proud flamboyant skater is looking forward to chasing the gold at the games in Russia.  Emory’’s parents have always been in his corner, loving him no matter his lifestyle choices.

 

Meeting Emory as a new neighbor the enforcer isn’t quite sure what to make of the flirtatious skater.  The Olympic hopeful on the other hand is absolutely certain that Nik is the guy for him.  Teasing and toying with Nik at every encounter Emory opens the hockey player’s eyes, as well as his body to something special.  Neither can afford to let their feelings interfere with their goals.  The consequences could ruin them.  Worse would be Nik’s father finding out.  Ending things is the smart way to go if only they could.

 

With the backdrop of competitive sports Enforcing Emory comes to life.  A difficult yet tender romance is at the heart of this family drama.  The main characters are polar opposites.  Emory is certain of his parent’s love and his skills on the ice.  Nik on the other hand only knows of abuse and fulfilling his father’s dreams.  The well written intense plotline allows Emory and Nik to shine.  You don’t have to know hockey or skating to enjoy this love story.

In a world where magic is an everyday part of life graduate student Aiden Lobo is at a strict disadvantage.  It is sometimes embarrassing to admit that he has absolutely no magical talent to work with.  His best friends and fellow grad students, Cassandra Koo and Greg Petran luckily have enough power between them to help Aiden whenever necessary.

 

Over time Aiden has fallen in love with his friend’s roommate Tanner.  It would be so awkward if things didn’t work between them so they’ve taken it slow.  Thinking it’s finally time to take their relationship to the next level Aiden invites Tanner back to his apartment.

 

While taking a short cut through the forest Aiden is horrified to find Tanner’s interest in him has more to do with demon rites than love.  Tanner intends to use Aiden as a sacrifice to the demon of war, Aeshma, which will then cause the death of millions upon millions of people.

 

Divine intervention in the form of a guardian angel saves Aiden during the rites, but not before a Crack in his heart forms.  His healing is a temporary measure at best.  Aiden names his savior Eskander and learns that he’s been loved from the moment of his birth.  Embracing that love and the sacrifice he must make for the greater good of all is much easier than knowing how his decision will affect Eskander.  If only they had more time.

 

The edgy thriller Aiden’s Angel explores the darkness and the power of the light, or love that one holds inside.  A world of magic, divine light, and demons comes to life in this original alternate reality storyline.  Aiden’s relationship with Eskander will pull every single heartstring taut.  Tensions ratchet higher and higher.  Emotions build and explode at the overwhelming climax that is Aiden’s Angel.  Tissue box necessary.
