Heat Level: 3
Published By: Evernight Publishing


Dakota thought moving to a new town for his new job would be easy. He gets to live with his best friend Leo, far from the machinations of his mother and the witches who want his genes. Unfortunately, his new boss keeps hitting on him. Is there nowhere a nice guy can hide from women who want his body?

Leo thinks pretending to be his best friend’s lover will be hilarious. He loves a good joke, and he’s delighted that Dakota finally lives close enough for them to hang out again like they did as kids. So what if they’re not gay? It’s all for a good cause: keep Dakota out of the clutches of a crazy woman.

Neither of them expects their charade to feel so real. How were they supposed to know that one kiss would lead to sex, or that true power comes from love?

Click here for an excerpt.

Knox is a killer hired to catch a thief: what happens when the thief catches the assassin instead, and chains him up? Nothing good. Nothing … sane.

Knox Calvin has spent his life repressing his sexuality. When Mick Lannon picks at his carefully constructed mental cage with a knife, he isn’t prepared for the fallout. Unfortunately, Knox isn’t the kind of man who can be bound for long, and Mick has his own demons to wrestle into submission. When Mick’s vendetta against his aunt’s killer spirals into all out war, Knox escapes to watch the carnage from a distance.

Mick likes his sex casual, his partners breathing, and doesn’t much care about anything else. Knox wasn’t interested in sex at all until Mick shackled him to a wall. What happens when one moment’s slip into darkness wakes up the monster in both men?


What are people saying about Caged Killer?

GGR-Review — 5 stars!

“The writing is stellar and believable, and it absolutely answers the question: do Knox and Mick deserve each other? … There’s a tight plot, engrossing characters who chew the scenery and give lust a run for its money, some surprise twists and turns, and a satisfying ending. Oh, and excellent editing.”

Love Bytes Reviews — 4.5 stars!

“Caged Killer isn’t a light and fluffy love story it’s a dark, twisted road to love so deep and abiding you will wish you’re the one on the receiving end!”

The TBR Pile — 4 stars!

“This is different and fun and dark. I really love the way the author thought out of the box with this plot.”

What if you met your soul-mates on the beach and didn’t realize it? How many chance encounters would it take before you risked everything and let yourself fall in love with not one, but two men?

For Carrie, losing her bikini top in the ocean leads to an erotic encounter with two gorgeous guys. For Eric and Zeke, the steamy kiss they share with her is an amusing interlude on a sunny, summer day, but when the three of them meet again at the art museum, attraction turns into passion. Zeke and Eric realize their feelings for each other are just as potent as their desire for Carrie. Will they risk everything and choose love? Will Carrie be willing to take that leap with them when loving two men means goodbye to her safe, conventional existence?

Reclusive artist Rufus Ward’s house needs repair, but he hates demolition and dust. However, when handyman Harry Hande rings his doorbell, Rufus lets him in—he’s everything the famous painter likes in a man: young, sexy, and somewhat confused about his sexuality. Rufus thought he was done with dating, but Harry is hot enough to push him from loneliness into love.

Harry’s sensible demeanor disguises desperation. His brother is a jerk and he needs to move out, but his fledgling business isn’t quite ready to support him. Rufus is supposed to be just another client, but when they meet, all of Harry’s preconceived notions of attraction are demolished. Lust launches him into the dare of a lifetime. Will letting Rufus draw him nude destroy him, or will his true nature come out?

DUSK by Erin M. Leaf


First Kiss:

“I should have called you sooner,” he said, surprising her. He put a hand on her arm, tilting her away from the office window. “Earlier this summer.”

“Why would you?” she asked him, floundering. He didn’t owe her anything. In fact, she owed him, for saving her life.

He looked at her for a long moment. Lucy was about to step back, but then he reached up and cupped her cheek. Her heart knocked against her ribs.

“The moment I touched you to heal you, I knew,” he murmured, eyes soft.

Lucy swallowed, trying to breathe past her panic. “Knew what?” she whispered. Heat washed through her in a wave. He smelled like fresh air and sun-baked stone. She couldn’t help it—she leaned into his palm.

He frowned and dropped his hand, suddenly staring at the door. He looked abruptly unapproachable. “I must go.”

Lucy stepped back, cursing herself for letting him get so close. “You confuse me,” she said past the lump in her throat. You’re just a silly girl to him, she told herself, embarrassed. She stepped back further. He’s hundreds of years older than you.

He turned back to her, his eyes dark and worried. “I’m sorry,” he murmured, then to her shock, he cupped her face with both hands and quickly kissed her.

Lucy stood there like an idiot. Do I kiss him back? she wondered, and then before she could do anything, he moved away, head tilting once more as if he was listening to something only he could hear.


His hands fell away from her as he stared at the door. “Stay here,” he said, frowning. “Something is wrong.”

“What?” she asked, but he was already outside. She touched her mouth, dazed. “What just happened?” Her lips tingled.

Round 1:

Hero’s name: 
Sentry Solomon Dusk

Hero’s profession: 
Sentry and scientist, protector of Earth

Physical description of hero: 
Solomon is tall, dark, and handsome with brown hair and stubble. His light brown eyes have silver specks within the iris, designating his status as a Sentry. He is nearly immortal and is 245 years old, but is incredibly strong. He needs to be extremely fit so he can power the Stronghold network with his personal energy, along with his three brothers.

Special skills:
Solomon has a natural immunity to the alien Spiders, and mental strength that gives his empathy power. He can sense the emotions of others and harness his energy to heal them, as well as interface with the technology he creates to fight the alien invaders of Earth. His ability to create new hybrid technology demonstrates his extreme intelligence.

“I am going to make love to you until you can’t remember your own name.”
