Out now - The Gilded Mirror

Life would be simpler if X marked the spot.

When Landry Carran buys an antique mirror from a pop-up flea market, he doesn’t expect it to set him on a treasure hunt originating in the Second World War. He can’t resist tracking down the clues even knowing that every step brings him closer to danger.

Landry’s partner and Dom, Detective Gage Roskam, has his own problems handling a money laundering case that twists and turns as much as Landry’s treasure trail.

As a decades-old mystery collides with modern-day crime, Landry and Roskam must juggle work, friendships and their relationship to solve both puzzles. It’ll be a miracle if nothing gets broken along the way.


Coming soon - Finding Him


Sometimes, using a safe word gets you exactly what you want.


Canadian Zac Denman is young, rich and submissive. He’s also a kidnap risk who’s grown up in the shadow of bodyguards and security precautions. All he wants is to work out what kind of submissive he is in a safe environment and thanks to his very understanding father, he’s getting the chance to do exactly that. The Retreat in England is safe, discrete and willing to provide a selection of Doms for Zac to play with – a great way of discovering what he is, and isn’t, into.

Dale Gastrell is a friend of The Retreat’s owner, a member of the Underground BDSM club and a soldier turned landscape gardener thanks to an inconvenient bullet. Two weeks providing covert protection to a wealthy client who won’t even know he’s there seems like a perfect break from city life.

But life is never simple and when Dale and Zac are thrown together, Dale has to fight his attraction. Zac is from a whole different world of wealth and privilege, he’s not for the likes of Dale who has to watch as Doms arrive at The Retreat to give Zac a taste of submission.

Excited and nervous, Zac tries to make the most of all The Retreat has to offer but he can’t get a certain gardener out of his head. Dale is sending mixed signals which Zac is too inexperienced to interpret. The Retreat’s dungeon proves to be overwhelming, but will Zac find the courage to use his safe word to get what he wants?
