Odin James would be willing to do just about anything to turn back time and change the outcome of one horrific night seven months ago.  He and his best friend Sebastian Norris were walking home from a bar when Bas was gunned down in front of Odin.  Barely managing to escape it’s been a nightmare ever since as first police and then the FBI were unable to protect Odin.  All because Bas was murdered by Warren Mortimer, the all powerful, influential Alpha of the dingo shifters.


Smoked again, Odin’s FBI handler Patric Charles hands his witness off to Tom Wylie.  Taciturn and withdrawn the former solider lives off the grid since he left his career behind.  Tom is also a wolf shifter beta in line to eventually lead the wolves.


What should have been a safe house where they could lay low is proven a dangerous trap.  Someone wants Odin badly and they’re willing to go to any lengths to capture him.  There must be more going on than the trial against Mortimer.  As far as Tom is concerned the moment he touched Odin ensured he’d give his life for him.  At long last the wolf has found his mate.  Whatever it takes Odin will survive and they will figure out what’s going on.  Whatever it takes.


A strong balance of tension, engaging characters, and action culminates in Lay Your Body Down.  Marked for death the shy witness isn’t sure who to trust until he lands in Tom’s capable hands.  Twists and turns are meagerly doled out as this story unfolds.  A multi layered tale, Lay Your Body Down works especially well because of the chemistry between the main characters.  Sit down, put your feet up, and enjoy the wild adventure of Lay Your Body Down.

The war on Earth ended after the Minders were banished to a colony on Mars where they could live with their own kind and no one else.  People were afraid of Minders.  No one wanted their thoughts read with a simple touch.  Then there’s the myth of a Sender who can actually manipulate others with thought.  Of course, Senders aren’t real.


So many years have passed since the war.  The Minders are able to negotiate a trial run allowing a handful of them to return to Earth by way of a stop on Titan.  A neural inhibitor will be placed on the volunteer’s temple which will render them harmless and normal.


The Inter-Sol Corp ship Elon Musk is chosen to bring the Minders.  Security chief Cal Hartland had to spend six weeks on Earth getting ready for this, yet nothing prepares Cal for their gorgeous leader Commander Zero.  Normally Cal ignores his sexual needs when he’s working, but he’s spending all his down time with Zero and even that’s not enough.


As the ship heads for Titan the unimaginable happens.  Someone is murdered.  Commander Zero offers his help to Cal who’s unaware that Zero was momentarily trapped in the killer’s mind.  As the body count rises so does Cal’s suspicions.  Zero knows too much, so either he’s the killer or his mind cannot be blocked.  Cal wishes he didn’t need to find the answer to his question.


Intrigue, seduction, and death are bound within the exciting In the Shadow of This Red Rock.  This intense whodunit romance pits a killer against a pair of intrepid pseudo detective lovers.  Solid characters, secrets, and a realistic feeling of drama will keep everyone entertained here.  Dive into In the Shadow of This Red Rock, a bold mystery twisted with love.
