Sweet Romantic Comedy

The only thing worse than being stuck in an RV with your enemy? Having to pretend you’re madly in love.

Lance Blakeman is an up-and-coming literary agent with a chance to represent the biggest horror writer since Stephen King. Unfortunately, the client doesn’t want to work with a bachelor. Lance needs a fiancée—fast.

Lainey Fredrickson is a struggling artist making ends meet by waitressing at a local diner. Or, she had been, until pretty boy Lance got her fired for accidentally spilling a beer on him. The way he carried on, you’d think she had deliberately doused him with radioactive waste. Now, she has exactly $4.23 to her name—not enough for an iced latte, let alone rent.

When Lance offers Lainey cash to pose as his fiancée, she can’t afford to say no, even if it means spending a week in a cramped RV with him. But can they fool the client without fooling themselves? There’s a fine line between love and hate. And with kisses this sweet, the line is bound to get blurred.

Gay Romance

Mischief, thou art afoot.

Special Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness is having a rough week. Not only is he on a new diet, but he’s also been tasked with keeping Henry Page — the world’s most irritating witness — alive. Which is tough when Mac’s a breath away from killing the Shakespeare-quoting, ethically-challenged, egg-obsessed Henry himself. Unless killing isn’t really what Mac wants to do to him.

Con man Henry Page prefers to keep his distance from the law . . . though he wouldn’t mind getting a little closer to uptight, handsome Agent McGuinness. As the sole witness to a mob hit, Henry’s a valuable asset to the FBI. But he’s got his own agenda, and it doesn’t involve testifying.

When evidence surfaces of a mole in the FBI office, Mac and Henry are forced to go into hiding. Holed up in a fishing cabin, they’re surprised to discover that their feelings run more than skin deep. But as the mob closes in, Henry has to make his escape. And Mac has to decide how far he’s willing to go to keep Henry by his side.

Hard-Boiled Mysteries

Private Investigator, Earl Town, is hired by a beautiful young professional to find her boss, a financial executive who disappeared amid negotiations on a billion-dollar merger. The case presents Earl with no shortage of possibilities. Is someone trying to scuttle the deal? Did the man with a notorious wandering eye get bumped off by an angry husband or jealous rival? Or perhaps, the stressed-out playboy simply headed off to a warm beach with a sizzling beach bunny.

The mystery leads the PI from Boston to Indian Head, a historic yacht club on the Long Island Sound, and the upper East Side of Manhattan. High society views Town as a rube, an assumption that the “wily sleuth protagonist” (Kirkus Reviews) cultivates and uses to his advantage. When Earl determines foul play is at hand, his chief suspects are the man’s co-workers and fellow yachters, all of whom are proud members of America’s modern-day aristocracy. They don’t much like the PI interfering in their business, and along the way, they’ll mock, bludgeon, and even seduce him, but perhaps their gravest error will be to underestimate him.

Have you ever had a goodbye lasting more than four hours? Do you lack the emotional capacity to say “I love you” so you just tell your loved ones to “watch out for deer”? Have you apologized to a stranger because she stepped on your foot? If you answered yes to any of these questions, there’s a good chance you’re a Midwesterner—or a Midwesterner at heart.

Even if you answered no, you probably know someone who held the door for you from two football fields away. He likely waved at you and said, “Hey there,” like you organized the church bar crawl together. That was a Midwesterner in the wild. We understand that your interaction was strange—but it’s likely to get stranger. Don’t wait until they stick their head in your second-floor window to invite you over for a perch fry because they climbed on your roof to clean your gutters. There’s no need to pull the pepper spray; this species is helpful by nature. And the relationship could be very symbiotic—but only if you let it happen. And that’s where this book comes into play.
