ONE MAN’S TRASH Available for Preorder

I don’t have a cover yet, but I do have a preorder link! One Man’s Trash is dark and angsty, very raw, and easily my most erotic contemporary novel to date. 

After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last twelve years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he likes. Fate intervenes when a favor for a friend leads him to a pretty young rentboy named Taylor Reynolds.

Taylor’s spent the last few years on his own, working as a hustler, going home with anybody who’ll give him a warm meal and a place to sleep. He enjoys having a bit of force used against him, and he makes Warren an offer he can’t refuse — all the sex he wants, as rough and dirty as he likes, in exchange for room and board.

At first, Warren thinks he’s struck gold. Taylor’s the perfect roommate — he cooks, he cleans, and he’s dynamite in the sack. But Taylor has some dark demons in his head and some even darker cravings. Falling for somebody as volatile as Taylor is dangerous enough, but when Taylor’s urges turn truly self-destructive, it’ll be up to Warren to decide just how far to let things go.

Now Available in Audio: The Well

Twenty years after prom queen Cassie Kennedy is brutally murdered, six teenagers break into the house where she was killed to hold a séance. Haven knows his cousin Elise only wants to scare the crap out of him and his friends, but he’s willing to put up with one of her pranks if it means a chance to spend a few hours with the new kid in town, Pierce Hunter.

But when morning comes, Elise has disappeared without a trace.

Twelve years later, Pierce and his twin brother Jordan are professional paranormal investigators, starring in their own ghost-hunting TV show. When Pierce calls Haven, insisting they return to the supposedly haunted building one last time, Haven reluctantly agrees. He’s nervous about seeing Pierce again, but he’s determined to get some answers. Did they really speak to Cassie’s ghost that night? What happened to Elise? And the biggest mystery of all – how did she know the secret of the well?

Available for Preorder: FAMILY MAN

At forty, Vincent “Vinnie” Fierro is still afraid to admit he might be gay—even to himself. It’ll be a problem for his big, fat Italian family. Still, after three failed marriages, it’s getting harder to ignore what he really wants.

Vinnie attempts some self-exploration in Chicago’s Boystown bars, far from anyone who knows him. Naturally, he runs smack into someone from the neighborhood.

Between working two jobs, going to school, taking care of his grandmother, and dealing with his mother’s ongoing substance abuse, Trey Giles has little time for fun, let alone dating someone who swears he’s straight. Yet after one night of dancing cheek-to-cheek, Trey agrees to let Vinnie court him and see if he truly belongs on this side of the fence—though Trey intends to keep his virginity intact.

It seems like a solid plan, but nothing is simple when family is involved. When Vinnie’s family finds out about their relationship, the situation is sticky enough, but when Trey’s mother goes critical, Vinnie and Trey must decide whose happiness is most important—their families’ or their own.

Coming September 11 from Dreamspinner Press.

FAMILY MAN – 2nd Edition Coming September 11

Family Man, which I co-wrote with Heidi Cullinan, was originally published back in 2013 by Samhain Publishing. Because Samhain is now defunct, Dreamspinner Press will release the 2nd edition* of Family Man on September 11, 2017. I’ll have a preorder link soon.

My Plans for 2017 (including upcoming releases)

I think I’m way overdue for a blog post. If you happen to be one of my sponsors on Patreon, none of this will be news, but for everybody else, I thought I’d let you know what’s going on, and share my plans for 2017.

Coming May 22

The Well

First of all, in case you missed it, my novel The Well will be released in just ten days! This book does have a romantic subplot, but it’s less romance, and more paranormal suspense.

It’s funny, because it seems like every single time I write a book that isn’t a traditional contemporary romance, some review site always says, “This is Marie’s first departure from contemporary romance.”

Seriously?

Just for the record, my first “departure” from contemporary romance was all the way back in 2010 when I published One More Soldier, which was set during the Vietnam War. My first “departure” into scifi/fantasy was Song of Oestend, in 2011, which was sort of like steampunk set in a paranormal AU Old West. So I’m a bit confounded when I see “professional” review sites claiming Winter Oranges or Release were my first “departure” from contemporary. They weren’t. Fully one-third of my backlist consists of “departures” from my supposed “norm.”

But, I digress. Let’s just say, The Well is yet ANOTHER departure from my “normal” contemporaries. It’s a contemporary setting, but it also involves a haunted house, a team of professional paranormal investigators, and an unsolved missing person case.

Don’t worry. It’s also a story of reunited first loves.  🙂

It’s available for preorder now. You can find all of those details here.

Sequels?

It’s possible (although not definite) that three other authors will be writing follow-up stories set in the same town as The Well. If that happens, you will undoubtedly see Haven, Pierce, and Jordan again. But… I can’t really say for sure yet whether that will happen or not.
