    Three years ago, Jory Harcourt changed his name and shut the door on a past full of pain, only to emerge stronger on the other side. He has a new career, a great working partner, and a satisfying life - except for the hole in his chest left behind when police Detective Sam Kage walked out with his heart. Now Sam's back and he knows what he wants... and what he wants is Jory. Jory, who doesn't know if he can survive another breakup or losing Sam to his dangerous job, resists returning to the arms of the only man he has ever truly loved. But when a serial killer with a score to settle targets Jory, he will have to decide if love is worth the danger.

    Keisha Beale, a street-wise Chicago south-sider two years out of DePaul University, is a quarter million dollars in start-up capital away from realizing her dream of owning a recording studio/record store. Tristan White is the devastatingly handsome, 32-year-old CEO of White Enterprises, the firm he built using only the inheritance his mother left him to prove to his father he had the mettle to do it alone. When Keisha and Tristan's worlds collide, sparks fly, and a fever is ignited in them both that they have never experienced before.

    An unexpected clue to the Order of Ananke's diabolical scheme rattles Jolie Benoit, and she turns to Sargent Wesley Haukton for comfort. It's been years since Hauk took comfort from the touch of another person, though his love for Jolie is deep and powerful. Uncomfortable in his skin, scarred by a terrible fire, he is unable to give in to the pleasures that Jolie so desperately wants to grant him. Meanwhile, the Order is lurking in the shadows - and when they strike, the blow is swift and terrible.

    It's business as usual for Trey du Bois. Of course, the 'business' might seem straight forward enough: a trip to New York must be made for negotiations on behalf of Trey's clients, Michel and Gabriel. But 'usual' is a relative term. In this case, it means traveling with a vampire bodyguard and trying to make sense of the voices in his head. Back in Europe, Michel and Gabriel travel from place to place, meeting with contacts, trying to understand exactly who is double-crossing them and whom they can count on.

    Xander Karcek has only wanted two things in his life: Christian Edwards and basketball—the man he loves and the game that let him escape a childhood he’d rather forget. His two obsessions have served him well. He and Chris beat the odds and stayed together through high school, college, and right on to the NBA. But life under fame’s microscope isn’t easy, especially when two men are pretending to be frat-buddies so the world doesn’t know they’re the next best thing to married.

    Jory Harcourt doesn't have to go looking for trouble. Wherever he goes, it seems to find him - particularly when his partner, Sam Kage, is working undercover on a federal task force. After the recession forces him to close his business, Jory goes to work as a matchmaker and event planner. From there, it's only a matter of time before his big mouth and up-front attitude make him the rope in a tug-of-war between a trust-fund baby and a drug-smuggling criminal.
