Taking a deep breath and girding his loins, so to speak, Forest Tilden walks into his very first BDSM club Head n’ Tails.  Years of secret yearnings, reading and watching videos have given Forest the courage to finally accept his sexual desires. It may be baby steps but it’s certainly a start.

Watching consensual acts within the club; Forest is equally uncomfortable and turned on.  When an overbearing Dom is too force full the young submissive isn’t quite sure what he should do.  

Dom Quarry Light is part owner of Heads n’ Tails. He feels strongly about the ‘lifestyle’ and the rules that bind them within the BDSM community. Watching a pushy Dom make a move on the sub he’s had his eye on Quar feels doubly obligated to step in and save Forest.  

The sub is sweet and naïve with very little sexual experience.  Quar on the other hand has several failed relationships under his belt so he’s soured on anything that lasts more than a single night.  Saving Forest from a persistent Dom proves highly satisfying. There’s something about the sexy sub that draws Quar’s attention. Maybe both their lives are about to change.  All it takes is a little faith, in each other.
Dominate treats the reader to a refreshingly adorable and spicy introduction between opposites.  Engaging main characters steal the story with ease. This fast paced slice of BDSM ‘lite’ style works.  Enjoy Dominate as Forest and Quar gently explore the beginnings of a wonderful life together.

More than a thousand years ago beings from another world crash landed on Earth.  The crew survived in part because of superior genetics. When they realized there would be no rescue it was decided they would quietly live alongside humans.  Unfortunately, there was a mutiny lead by crewmember Dracul whose one goal is to rule over alleveryone. Over time the Ccaptain and his loyal crew were forced to fight off Dracul’s machinations of world dominance.

Club Lux in Boston is owned and operated by Alex Stelalux and his family.  The Ccaptain and his crew are fully assimilated in human culture. Alex is kept busy with the club and his human lover Quinn.  Second-in-command Valerius opened his heart long ago to a human. When the young man and his son died in childbirth Val vowed to never fall in love again.  

Homophobic parents drove Mackenzie ‘Mackie’ Frasier from his home.  Without skills he chose to sell his body on the streets in order to survive.  Eventually he became a pole dancer at Club Lux. His need for submission is met by Val, a Dom.  Knowing exactly what Val truly is hasn’t deterred the bratty sub from wanting a permanent relationship.  When Val backs off from Mackie, the young human is hurt and can’t understand why the alien won’t commit.

Suddenly people begin dying from a new street drug called vamp.  The aliens realize Dracul is making another bid for domination. They need to find where this killer drug is being made. Val feels torn in two, he must assist his Ccaptain but at the same time he’s twisted up about Mackie, the twenty-something has his emotions in knots.  Somehow Mackie has to break through Val’s thick hide and reach his heart – to prove their relationship is worthwhile. And, stop Dracul in his tracks before more die.
Dangerous Dance is a dark emotional drama with depth.  Heinous villains and honorable heroe’s engage in a battle of wits with humanity as the prize.  The fast paced, detailed plotline gives the characters room to develop and grow. Val and Mackie’s complicated relationship runs the gamut – sacrifice and then love the ultimate winner.  There’s some unpleasant violence in Dangerous Dance but it does fit within the storyline.  All in all, a thrilling, fascinating tale.

Evrain Brookes is possibly the most powerful new warlock the world has ever seen.  He wouldn’t be as strong however without his lover Dominic Castine, a human gardener who Evrain needs as a conduit to channel his gift.  Their relationship is growing by leaps and bounds alongside their ability to work magic.


Recently they were able to stop an evil warlock whose thirst for domination endangered everyone.  Unfortunately, the Octis Coven, a group of witches are now aware of Evrain and they will stop at nothing to acquire the young warlock’s blood for their own use.


Word has reached the lovers that the warlock they already battled and the Octis Coven have joined forces.  Getting a hold of either Evrain or Dominic would be very bad.  Capturing them both could prove deadly.  Being smart and being safe may be asking too much of the cocky young warlock.  Hopefully Evrain’s desire to protect Dominic will keep them safe from harm.


Passion and drama go hand in hand in Elemental Hope, the second book in the Warlocks series.  Intense romance explodes from the pages as Evrain and Dominic further explore the bounds of their love.  Suspense from the get go, twists and turns throughout treat readers to a wonderful story.  Elemental Hope can easily be read as a standalone tale, yet the intricate plotline benefits from firsthand knowledge of book one.  A potent brew of magical love, Elemental Hope absolutely satisfies the reader’s thirst for a great story.
