Book one in the Noir Nights series

Having a secret admirer can be deadly.

Ricky Morris, private investigator on New York’s elite Upper East Side, has forged a shady yet profitable life as a gumshoe for wealthy Manhattanites after burning the bridge to his law enforcement past. When women in the city are targeted by a sweet-toothed murderer in the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, the last thing Ricky expects is to be hired by the younger brother of the man who ruined his life.

Timothy Ward, young, fresh patrolman for the N.Y.P.D. who never thought he’d have to step outside the law, finds himself in desperate need of Ricky’s help when he fears his brother, James Ward, the Deputy Chief, could be behind the killing spree.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, both men will have to work in the shadows, putting their careers and lives on the line to get to the bottom of the murderer’s sickly sweet and cruel plans. That is, if the burning heat of undeniable—and very forbidden—lust between them doesn’t consume them in the flames of reckless desire first…

Reader advisory: This book contains period-typical attitudes including slurs. There are mentions of on-page gunplay, and a slow-burn between the main characters over the course of the series.



October 1943. Manhattan, New York.

Peter Corcoran has been a Friday night regular at the Starling Club for so long that he has his own seat at a back table. From here, he watches the battalion of stunning single ladies take turns dancing with the most handsome man in the whole establishment. That attractive man is not only his best friend but also his roommate—and it won’t be one of the drop-dead-gorgeous women who Daniel Bennet goes home with at the end of the night.

When the closed apartment door cuts off the rest of the world, Danny gives him the first of a series of burning kisses—kisses that never cease to shatter Peter’s universe. But the tiny, cynical voice in the back of his head has him doubting their strange, secret charade and wondering if their romance could ever be more than just an indulgence at the end of the week, when prying eyes aren’t looking…

Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of homophobia.



“Your heart may speak true,” the man said, “but that still changes nothing.”
“My heart?”
“Yes. I can hear it from all the way over here,” he explained. “If I were to lay my hand upon you again, I would be able to hear it as if it was whispering directly in my ear.”

Sven, a handsome young man living with his cousin in a quaint village deep in the woods, is in desperate need of help—of something that folks say only the secretive woman living at the top of the mountain’s path can provide for him. The only problem is, the woman isn’t just a hermit on the edge of town, but supposedly a witch—one who practices deals with the Devil and can perform miraculous feats because of it, but she’s Sven’s only hope.

His idea doesn’t go according to plan however when he walks straight into a trap, his throat at blade’s edge. There is no witch, but instead a young man, Darius, who moves like a shadow and threatens Sven at knife-point to leave. The pair of them reach a dark compromise; Darius will help, but only if Sven dares to assist him with his mysterious, supernatural ritual in the dead of night.

The tasks won’t be easy, or painless, but that won’t stop Sven from saving his cousin’s life. He’ll do whatever it takes. However, the more he gets to know Darius, the more he finds out about the curious, fascinating ability Darius has and the hardship he faces with his ritual. Darius’ secrets begin to unravel and the more they do, the more Sven can’t bring himself to leave…

From number-one fan to number-one threat.

Ricky Morris, ex-cop turned private investigator for the elite Manhattanites of New York’ s Upper East Side, came close to ending up on the slab when the St. Valentine’ s Day murderer had him staring point-blank down the barrel of their gun.

Thankfully, NYPD officer Timothy Ward was there to save his neck and bring the murderer down. While Ricky and Timothy proved they could work well together in the shadows, their undeniable and dangerous passion for each other is leading to a forbidden relationship— the kind that Ricky promised himself he would never get tangled up in again.

Breaking it off with Timothy is hard to do though, and Ricky finds himself needing his help once again in a new case. The most famous burlesque dancer in Manhattan, Ms. Faye Fontaine— the Parisian Princess— has been receiving letters from a secret admirer… increasingly sinister letters, and Ricky knows all too well how these things play out.

Will Ricky and Timothy be able to work together and find out whose obsession has become deadly, or will the rampant heat of their forbidden feelings bring them down in flames before they can save the girl?
