Edward Kendrick
gay mystery romance
36140 words, 181 pages
$3.99 in ebook


Gideon Monahan is a man dedicated to what he does--recovering stolen art--to the exclusion of anything else, including a personal life. There's a reason for that, something that happened in his past that he can't forget.

Cole Newell is an archaeologist with a problem. He needs to find out who looted a dig he worked the previous summer. When an artifact from that dig shows up at his gallery, Cole calls on Gideon to lend his expertise.

One of the looters is murdered, so they set out to find answers with the help of Detective Quint Hawk. In the process, Cole realizes he's attracted to Gideon, even though he's certain the man is straight--but is he?

Cole helps Gideon open up about--and accept--his past. But once they overcome the myriad of problems facing them, can the two men become more than friends?

$3.99 in ebook


Diego and Colby think they're having a quick fling, but life--like moonlight--brings surprises. Can they ever be together, for real?

Diego Champagne, Sergeant in Arms for the Louisiana Banni motorcycle gang, has grown up tough--half French, half Creole, and all male. Diego loves men, but keeps his sex life on the down-low...until he meets Colby Young, that is.

Colby carries his own baggage. He has his own reasons for not believing in love--reasons he doesn't share--and he sure as the devil doesn't like it when he's forced to accept help from anyone.

When Diego intervenes in a bar brawl during a motorbike rally and saves Colby and his best friend, Spider McGraw, leader of the rival gang Death Proof, it begins to look as if Colby and Diego are going to be joined at the hip. Somebody puts a hit out on Colby, and Spider's up to his neck in mayhem. When the Banni offer their protection to advance their own game, Colby begins to wonder: is love like artificial moonlight, seductive yet false? Or is it powerful and true, something for which he might risk everything...maybe even his life?

For law abiding New Jersey citizens, Hurricane Sandy caused billions in property damage. For heroin junkie and college dropout Sean Cody, the night of the storm destroyed everything.

Returning home from a last minute drug run, Sean finds his lover, Alexa Castiglione, dead from an apparent overdose. But where did she get the dope that killed her? As Sean searches for answers, he finds himself trapped between unlikely allies on both sides of the resurgent East Coast heroin epidemic.

Chris Anders is a local detective obsessed with the deadly brand of dope that killed Alexa. FBI Special Agent Vanessa Coleridge has Anders pegged as her prime suspect in a series of bizarre gangland slayings. Meanwhile, the Castiglione crime family, led by Alexa's father, operates in the shadows to capitalize on the chaos. Will Sean discover the truth behind Alexa's death, or will he become another casualty of America's newest drug war?

When Geoffrey arrives, he finds the accused is new to town, and none of the usual signs of an incubus. But four people have disappeared recently, and he refuses to leave until he finds out why. There is evil in the village, but not in the form Geoffrey imagines.

What secrets does Raul hide?

Can Geoffrey defeat the darkness that threatens?

NEW REVIEW IN!



Plumbers and Other Lovers: Four Short Tales of Love, Lust, and Leaky Pipes
by Spencer Dryden 

"Here we have four cute little stories about blue collar lovers, which I quite enjoyed. They are all too short to summarize, but suffice it to say, that each is quite different, & we get a HEA ending for each. The sex is volcanic, & just right for cottage or beach, as long as you have a cold drink & a fan handy."

NEW RELEASE! It pays to be relentless!



Relentless Passion (Relentless Series #1) by AJ Llewellyn
gay contemporary erotic romance
27158 words, 143 pages
$2.99 in ebook


On a sun-kissed Italian island, twins Zeca and Alex learn that in order to love, they need to become relentless.

Twins Alex and Zeca love to switch identities. It's harmless fun until Alex wants to date a hot tourist visiting their home of Capri, and asks Zeca to take his place on a date with Alex's current beau, Antonio.

After a day in Antonio's arms--followed by a long, lusty weekend in his bed during a trip to Naples--Zeca discovers switching places with Alex isn't so harmless after all. Especially when he realizes he's falling hard for his brother's boyfriend.

While struggling with his feelings for Antonio, consoling his semi-celebrity father (who's having woman troubles) and trying not to upset Alex (who might be in love with Antonio...or his tourist tryst...or maybe the neighbor lady), Zeca wonders how any of them will make it through all the relationship woes with hearts intact. As Antonio says, "Love has a way of fixing things itself."

$3.99 in ebook

My name is Brannon "Bran" Walker. I'm a private investigator, hired by Millicent Ashley's father to do a background check on her fiance, Tom Grant. Then Millie dies under suspicious circumstances during the engagement party for her and Tom--a party I attended. Murder? I think so, and I intend to prove it.

Duncan "Dunc" Raines, the lead detective in the case--and my ex-lover--tells me to keep my nose out of his investigation. No surprise, I ignore his order--and try to ignore him--as I begin digging into who might have decided a dead fiancee is preferable to a living bride. Suspects are numerous, and someone wants me to stop looking for the murderer, if they have to kill me to make that happen. As if. I intend to show Dunc that a PI can be just as good as a cop at uncovering a killer.

NEW REVIEWS for Fireborn books!



It Takes an Artist... (Quint and Clay Art Crimes #2) by Edward Kendrick

"If you like the idea of getting to witness the process of hunting criminals out to make money by using forged art as part of their nefarious plans, if you want to know more about two men who start out as patient and doctor only to discover they want a relationship, and if you're looking for a read with wonderful characters, interesting twists and turns in the process of solving a crime, and a suspenseful story, then you will probably like this novella."
Serena Yates for Rainbow Book Reviews


It Takes a Forger... (Quint and Clay Art Crimes #3) by Edward Kendrick

"With each book in this series, I am becoming more convinced that art crimes are my new passion! Yes, there have also been murders (which I find more difficult to deal with), but mostly the stories have been focused on the different types of art, the artists who produced the works, and the things that can go wrong when criminals get their hands on the more valuable pieces. This third book is a case in point--it's all about forged art that is used to take greedy collectors for a ride.

"If you like the idea of watching the process of setting a clever trap for an art forger, if you want to know more about two men who think they can't like each other only to discover they may be very well suited, and if you're looking for a read with all kinds or art and the men who produce it, some twists and turns in the capture of a criminal, and a happy ending, then you will probably like this novella."
Serena Yates for Rainbow Book Reviews


The Match Boy and the Inventor (A Once Upon a Future Story) by Pelaam

"Like many fairy tales, the original version of this story, 'The Little Girl with the Matchsticks' by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen, is a very sad affair. It was first published in 1845, and that is roughly when this newer version takes place as well. However, 'The Match Boy and the Inventor' is set in an alternative, Steampunk-ish universe and has a far, far happier outcome. It is written with the period and its "mechanical wonders" in mind, but left me feeling as though I'd read a true fairy tale.

"If you like sweet fairy tales whose happy ending makes up for the initial angst, if you enjoy reading about men who are an unlikely match at first glance, yet fit together perfectly once they focus on what's important to them, and if you're looking for a sweet read with the slightly otherworldly feel of a Steampunk story, then you will probably like this novella."
Serena Yates for Rainbow Book Reviews


Slayer (Demonica Origins #1) by Pelaam
"This first book in a new series about the origins of the Demonica Universe goes back into an alternate version of the seventeenth century to tell the story of Alessandro, a slayer hired by the church to eliminate preternatural threats, and his secret lover, apothecary Jose. If you like creepy stories with hellish fiends threatening the very existence of anyone within their reach, if you want to see how two men who have to hide their love triumph over their enemies, and if you're looking for a read that is as scary and brutal as it is suspenseful, then you will probably enjoy this novella."
