Asking for a friend Cover


Lando writes about romance for a living yet shuns it in his life.

After too many failed relationships, Lando Hardwick has enough. No more dates for him. His taste in men is abysmal. He always falls for the ones who are only looking for fun.

Hesketh Trent has stopped searching for a boyfriend. They only see him as a walking cash machine, only care what he can buy them. What has happened to romance, love?

Getting soaked by scolding coffee is the worst way to start the day, but hell’s bells, the man is divine. Even though the man ticks all his boxes, no way is Lando giving him his phone number. He’ll be like all the rest: one hot night and he kicks him out the door.

But Hesketh doesn’t give up so easily. The cute redhead with no brain-to-mouth filter intrigues him as no man has ever done.

A cat and mouse chase is on, with Lando as the mouse. Once Lando is caught, they can’t stay away from one another.

Until Hesketh makes a mistake.

Thank god for mutual friends who won’t give up on them and push them together when they’re both too stubborn to take the next step.

Asking For a Friend is a stand-alone MM novel with a group of sassy men, a larger-than-life ginger cat called Flanaghan, a stubborn writer, and a man who can plan events but not his own life.

I pass the cute twink who’s already hanging off another guy’s arm. Too late again. I don’t bother looking around. I just want to get home. Lando can carry on with his life without any more interactions with me.

As I step outside, I flip the collar of my leather jacket up around my neck. I look up and down the street for a cab. I’d rather do that than get the tube, but of course not a single orange light shows on the road. Fuck it and fuck tonight.


I stop and turn. But instead of Dylan ready to give me a talking to, it’s Lando. He hovers in the doorway, but I don’t make a move. I’m not going to him. I’ve done nothing but try to get him to talk to me all week. He looks cute, though. God, why do I always have to do the chasing?

I storm up to him. “What?” He flinches back, but I’ve got no fucks left to give. “What do you want? You’ve had plenty of opportunities this week to call me and tell me to stop, that you’re not interested, but nothing. Not even a fuck-off at the counter. I’ve been in that shop twice a day, every bloody day this week. I’m a nice guy. I don’t fuck about or play games. I just thought I’d do something nice, something you might like, but you’ve done sweet sod all about it.”

He blinks a couple of times, opens his mouth, and snaps it shut again. “You didn’t leave me your number,” he says quietly.

“I did. Have you actually opened the tea caddy or unwrapped the cellophane off the other things?” I cross my arms over my chest. He’s looking a little embarrassed and doesn’t make eye contact. He slicks his tongue over his lower lip. “You haven’t opened them. Okay, I’m going to make this simple for you. I like you, and I’d like to have your number so I can ask you out on a date. If you’re interested, that is.”

MurderMostLovely_Book 1


A killer at a small-town literary festival. Bumbling drug dealers. A kidnapped cat. Starting a romance among all this chaos might be the death of them.

Michael Fleishman is excited to meet his favorite mystery writer, Russell Withingham, at Lacetown’s Literary Fest. He is not expecting to cross paths with sexy hairdresser Jasper “Jazz” Dilworth―or become embroiled in a real-life mystery. As Lacetown’s only mortician and the county coroner, Michael is called to his first murder scene and is shocked to recognize the victim―Russell’s young lover.

Jazz only wanted to confront his ex, Russell, over his cheating. Instead, he meets the adorably awkward Michael and becomes a murder suspect. Soon Jazz is teaming up with Michael to clear his name. Along the way, they are helped and hindered by Michael’s sassy assistant, Kitty, the grumpy Sheriff Musgrave, Russell’s creepy PR rep, Norbert, and Michael’s lothario grandfather, who likes his manhattans strong and his women saucy. And of course, Mr. Pickles Furryton the Third…

MurderMostDeserving_Book 2


An acoustic music festival comes to Lacetown, and with it, another dead body―this one found at Fleishman’s Funeral Home. Michael recuses himself from the autopsy, handing the job over to his arch-nemesis from a neighboring county.

Luckily Michael and local hairstylist Jazz are closer than ever. Between a trio of funerals, a blowout BBQ, and a couple of trips on Beulah, Jazz’s beloved scooter, Michael and Jazz do some sleuthing of their own. With the first gruesome murder still fresh in their memories, they can’t help but wonder if notorious murderer and famous author Russell Withingham might be targeting them from jail, where he’s awaiting trial.

The festival, however, brings in a veritable lineup of potential killers, including a familiar―and most unwelcome―figure from their past. As the murderer circles ever closer to Jazz and Michael, Sheriff Musgrave is quick to remind them that everyone’s a suspect until Sheriff Musgrave says they’re not!
