Out now - The Poison Bottle
There's no antidote to the malignant craving for power and wealth.
Landry Carran should know better than to get involved in yet another murder mystery, but it was hardly his fault that someone dumped a dead body on the doorstep of Treasure Trove Antiques. He can't resist recruiting his friends to help him play detective.
Meanwhile, Landry's partner and Dom, Gage Roskham is doing real detective work that proves hazardous to his health and brings with it the assistance of an annoying Englishman who Gage believes should be behind bars.
The case twists and turns across Seattle's antique trade and the bodies multiply. As clues are solved, it becomes apparent that those closest to Gage are in grave danger. He'll need to control his errant sub, deal with the most irritating Brit ever born and solve the case if he wants to prevent more death.

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.
