A Collection of Gay Erotic Romance

Available now at

Just one night can change a life.

Mix misty evenings out on the town with four men in need of second chances, and let the night make its move to bring them together. Night Moves - two stories about finding love when it’s least expected.

Tango in the Night

Jubal Graham is back on the job after a shooter took the life of his long-time partner, and sent him into a coma followed by months of rehab. Determined to have justice, Jubal is focused on finding a killer, not a new romantic entanglement. Ellis Banks, with his smoldering blue eyes and denim-clad swagger is a distraction Jubal can’t afford – or ignore.

Ellis Banks came to Philadelphia to bust a drug operation; one that connects to the same case agency legend Kentuckian Jubal Graham is working. Ellis finds himself drawn to Jubal, but Jubal holds him off. Sure that Jubal is interested, even though he wears his slain lover’s ring, Ellis mounts a determined siege.

Jubal’s surprise at having a suitor develops into a growing affection for Ellis, one clouded with old fears. Fate ripped one lover from his arms, and now Ellis is in the line of fire. Jubal’s courage can protect Ellis, but is it powerful enough to love him?

Give Me One Night

Brody O’Connor joins the revelry of the yearly pub crawl hunting a like-minded man for night of fun and frolic with no strings attached. When a mystery man in an emerald shirt engages Brody’s interest, it doesn’t take long for the hunter to become the prey.

Well-matched with his mystery man, Brody regrets his ‘no strings’ approach to a night of shared passion that leaves him hungry for more. The morning after, Evan is gone as agreed. Brody knows it was a mistake to let him go, and vows to find him.

Evan never expected to meet someone like Brody. Now Brody wants to change the rules, and Evan agrees. He’ll give Brody one more night to convince him to stay.

A close run thing

To start the new year, I got a Bluetooth headset thingee. It's actually pretty cool, and has already proven to be a timesaver in the evenings. I can yak with friends and still have my fingers on the keys. Not that I can work on a story while talking, because I can't, but I can blog or check in at one of the numerous Yahoo lists. It's a tool, and it has its place.

We had "January thaw" weather today, so we took the opportunity to take down the Christmas wreaths and tidy up the yard. Since we worked so hard, our reward was dinner out.

Over coffee, my wonderful guy informed me he wanted his own Bluetooth.

I knew he wouldn't be able to stand it that I had a toy he didn't. He likes toys as much, if not more, than I do. How he lasted two whole weeks with me having a gizmo he didn't, I really don't know.

Well, I do love him, and so managed not to laugh.

But it was a close run thing.

At the Southern Cross paperback at Amazon

**5/17/2016 update - this paperback is currently out of print**

Having an old-fashioned rural mailbox on a post is like having a magic box. When I pull up to it after long hours at the day job, I never know what I'll find. Years ago, when my grandparents were alive and lived down the lane from me, my mailbox contained all manner of goodies.

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, green beans, tomatoes, cantaloupe - summers brought a trip around their garden. Sometimes the magic box contained a simple note. "Stop in before you go home." I knew what that meant. Homemade jelly, pies, canned soups, sometimes a complete dinner, all from the garden that day.

My old black mailbox isn't quite as magic now. My grandparents are gone, and the postal service frowns on cucumbers in "their" mailboxes. All I find in the box these days is junk mail. Almost.

Today my mailbox yielded the first copies of At the Southern Cross, the paperback compilation that contains Netting Neptune, Taming Triton, and Poseidon's Pleasure. Even though the bulk of my book buying and reading is in ebooks now, I'm still thrilled to get my hands on a hard copy of a book that I wrote.

It might be a little silly because, let's face it, I know all the words already. I've loved books all my life. Books take you to far away places and introduce you to characters you won't meet anywhere else, and that holds true for paper book or ebook. It really is about the story, not the medium.

Except for tonight. I'm off to the quiet of my bedroom and the guilty pleasure of reading my own book. A flashback to days gone by? Yes, it is, but I'm content to move along with the times. It's time to abandon my trusty laptop and invest in a Kindle.

What the heck is a Bluetooth?

Bluetooth? I'm not sure I want to know where that name came from, but I'm about to embrace the technology. Talking with a long-winded girlfriend last night tipped the balance. I love her, I really do, but my fingers could have been busy while I listened to her talk. And talk. And talk.

One thing is certain, though. I'm not going to walk around the grocery store talking to myself.

Yeah, I know. Gimme a week, two at the outside.

Starting the New Year with a new review for Tango in the Night

January 1, 2010

New Year's Day. Having survived the top of an icy mountain last night in pursuit of a fancy steak dinner, I am staying home today. Home, where it's safe, warm and dry. So what if I'll have to (maybe) do laundry?

I enjoyed the fancy dining last night. Dressing up and going out once a year is a good thing. Sequins, cashmere, pearls - deep inside, that is the real me. Most days, though, it's jeans and sweaters - and yes, pearls. At least pearl earrings.

Traditionally, in my family, New Year's Day is when the Christmas decorations are taken down and packed away until next year. When I first moved into my own home, I followed that tradition for a few years, then decided I'd wait until the Saturday after the holiday. It wasn't long until De-Decorating Day became the Saturday after Epiphany. This year, thanks to my cat, the tree came down (literally!) early, so this morning I packed up everything else and stowed the boxes up on the cold attic.

Part of me feels sad that all that bright finery is religated to endure winter cold and summer heat in darkness. Some tiny part of me is in those boxes every year, and yet perhaps the only way to really enjoy the sparkle and glitter is to be without it for a time. The new year will fly by fast enough, and in the blink of an eye, it will be Thanksgiving, and I'll be up in the cold attic sliding the boxes down the ladder for my partner to catch.

This new year of 2010, or 2K10 as some call it, started out with a new review of Tango in the Night. Literary Nymphs gave the story 4.5 Nymphs, and a sparkling review. What kind words from Mystical Nymph! She closed the review with this: "Read this one and enjoy. I know I did." Read the full review here. My warmest thanks go to Mystical Nymph for helping me start the new year on a high note.

So now I've blogged and told everyone about the new review. I guess that means it's time to come back down to earth and do my household chores - wearing my pearl earrings, of course.
