Diego

Volume 2 of Endangered Fae

Building a solid relationship between a human and a Irish fairy was never going to be easy. When Diego misinterprets a situation he finds Finn in, his anger opens a hole in the veil which has kept the human and fae worlds separate for hundreds of years. Diego is plunged into a world he has no knowledge, or at least no recollection, of, and Finn finds himself still an outcast among his own people. First, the two have to find each other, then they have to work out their differences, and finally they have to figure out how to get back to the human world, although they're unaware of what waits for them there.

A Prince's Hostage

Elliyan is a thief. A very good thief. He has a bit of advantage in that he can see and penetrate the magical spells that the aristocrats use to protect their precious baubles. He's supposed to be lying low in the provinces when he spots Prince Rayne in the market place, wearing an irresistible gold medallion with a giant blue stone. Elliyan is bored and ready to take risks he should know better than to take. But Rayne is not the fool Elliyan takes him for and catches Elliyan before he can get away. The thief seems to be just what Rayne needs to help him avert a war with their neighbors, but can he convince Elliyan to help him? More...

Finn

Volume 1 of Endangered Fae

Irish fairy (pooka) Finn wakes from a centuries-long slepp to a very unfamiliar modern world.

Diego is someone who just can't help trying to make other people's lives better. Fearing that Finn might harm himself, and with no idea what he really is, Diego takes him home. Although both of them have reasons to not be interested in any kind of relationship, a natural attraction forms between them, but how long can it last? More...

Natural Beauty

Volume 5 of The Cubi

While plans proceed for Daniel's investiture as king of the North American cubi, the young man himself still isn't completely sure he will be up to the task. The prospect would be daunting enough, without the added responsibility of being practically in a state of war with rogue elements of the human military. Meanwhile, freed “breeder” Alex is having trouble adjusting to life outside the cubi world. He felt used as a sex slave by the cubi, but now that he's home with his homophobic parents and working a thankless job in a stock room, he begins to see his former life in a new light. More...

When the king of Kenta dies without an heir, his ward Naxar steps into the vacuum to reunite the kingdom, a task which requires him to be ruthless.
