NEVER TOO LATE and CARLYLE'S CROSSING!

Never Too Late

Re-released under my Kouros Books label!***

Available from Amazon
and All Romance eBooks

The old sugar maple features strongly in Stuart's life. He'd first met Harry here, while he was completing a college project. He'd been eighteen, Harry twenty-one. They'd started dating soon after. Harry had proposed under the maple—down on one knee, the whole nine yards. Under its branches, they'd decided to buy a house together, and here, many years later, Stuart had scattered Harry's ashes.

For six years Stuart has been alone. He feels he's had his chance at love, and doesn't expect to find anyone else. Then he meets Tom. But Tom is twenty years his junior, and Stuart can't take that in his stride.

Their age difference is irrelevant to Tom. He knows Stuart is it for him, the one man who can give him everything he didn't know he needed, and he can offer the same to Stuart. All he has to do is convince Stuart to give them a chance. Once again Old Man Maple is witness to life-changing decisions.

***Previously published in the anthology Silver Presents... Love Is Love

Carlyle's Crossing

Released by Total E-Bound -
Preorder: 2nd August 2012
Prerelease: 16th August 2013

General Release: 13th September 2013 

Jubal is the last Carlyle, and lives near Seattle, far away from his Abenaki ancestors. A letter from a lawyer draws him and his best friend, Sal, to Vermont and the town of Whitewater. Soon they are right in the middle of the old conflict that drove Jubal's parents away just before his birth. 

Whitewater is suffering and not just from the economic downturn. Unleashed by one man's obsession to call back the spirit of his dead wife, and by the well-meaning but flawed actions of another, dark forces are bringing depression and hopelessness. 

Jubal's father had neither the talent nor the wish to attempt the task of driving back the incursion, but Jubal knows he has to try. He must find a way to reverse the process before the malaise spreads. But he has no knowledge, no training, just instinct - and Sal. Always Sal, who is rapidly becoming far more than a friend with benefits. The dangers they face are insidious, and more than their lives and sanity are at risk.

FANFARE! Two New Titles From Manifold Press!

Released today are two crackin' good novels from Manifold Press! First up is the debut novel from Cimorene Ross, her historical romance, THE EAGLE'S WING.


Roman Gaul: Lucius Valerius Carus isn’t naturally impulsive; when he suddenly and unexpectedly buys a slave at a market it’s because he feels sorry for a man who has obviously been maltreated in the past.  However he’s taken on far more than he bargained for with Keret – intelligent, educated, and a great deal stronger than he looks. Roman society wouldn’t think twice about Lucius using Keret for his sexual pleasure – indeed, it would be astonished if he didn’t – but it’s likely to be horrified if it ever learns that Lucius has started to respect his slave, and absolutely disgusted if it discovers that he’s gradually beginning to fall in love …

Then there is the latest offering from the much-praised Jane Elliot, her western MONTANA RED.

It’s out of the frying-pan and into the fire on the day Henry first meets Red. He’s happy enough at first to be having sex with a man – Heaven knows, it’s better than what he’s running away from! – but it isn’t too long before Red’s sexual extravagances are driving the two of them apart. It’s only when Henry’s trying to manage on his own again that he at last begins to achieve a little perspective – on inversion in general, on himself in particular, and even on his relationship with Red. That’s when he starts to wonder if maybe there isn’t a way back for them after all, but this time it will definitely have to be on his terms …
