Perfect Flaw

Blurb

A superficial scar that ran six feet deep…

When newly-minted Dr. Angelo Perrotta joins an exclusive concierge medical practice, he believes he has found success.

But this dream job spirals into a nightmare when he becomes entangled with charismatic colleague, Demetre Kostas. Harmless office flirtation turns to lust and Angelo quickly finds himself subsumed by a series of tragic events that could jeopardize his career and destroy all hope of winning handsome, but troubled cop Jason Murphy.

Excerpt

“The way Angelo saw it, everyone deserved a miracle. He wasn’t likely to win the lottery or discover a cure for cancer or learn to fly. But by some divine intervention, he had been chosen to join the Manhattan practice of Dr. Anthony Stanzione—New York magazine’s top rated HIV specialist.

Sweaty. Shaky. Thinking he was going to pass out, Angelo assured himself he was ready. And why not? He had graduated medical school and completed an internal medicine residency. He had missed out on parties, holidays, vacations, and fun while he studied in the library, reviewed slides in the lab, and treated patients for years. He had worked long hours on hardly any sleep and stood for stretches at a time—swaying in a trance of boredom—rounding with his attending physicians each day, knowing it would all be worth it once he got that dream job.

Standing in front of Dr. Stanzione’s office that morning, staring at the black wrought iron gate and the white marble entrance, Angelo thought things couldn’t possibly get better. That’s when he saw it.

A bronze plaque on the exterior wall bearing his name: Angelo Perrotta, M.D.

Deep breath, he said to[…]”

Against Fate Ebook

Blurb

Hopeless romantic Luis wants to write a love story, but he’s never even kissed a man. Luckily, his hunky mentor can teach him much more than just how to write a book. Too bad it all comes with a price.

By the age of twenty-three, I’ve read enough romance novels to fill up a library. My own love life is yet to start, but I’m in no rush. True love comes to those who wait, and I won’t settle for less than Happy Ever After. So what’s the point in kissing any frogs?

But when my clairvoyant grandmother sees heartbreak looming in my future, I learn that life is rarely that simple. And when bestselling author Adam Allister offers to help me write my first novel, I’d be a fool to say no, even if every cell in my body warns me to stay away.

After all, as long as I don’t fall for him, I’m safe. And, with a man as cynical and unromantic as Adam, that shouldn’t be a difficult task.

Is he hotter than all the cover models of my favorite novels combined? Yeah.

Do I sometimes forget to breathe if he looks at me a certain way? I guess…

Is one smile from him enough to fill my mind up with pulse-quickening daydreams of unknown pleasures? Um, I’d rather not answer that.

None of this matters, anyway. Now that I know what fate’s got in store for me, I won’t be foolish enough to put myself in harm’s way. Not when my heart is on the line.

Against Fate is the slow-burn, heart-warming story of two men who learn to put their conflicting ideas of love aside in order to discover the real thing together. Peppered with extra-steamy scenes, the book is guaranteed to make you blush and swoon all the way to the Happy Ever After. This is the first book in the Prince Castle series, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

BSide Cover

Blurb

Chance
When I read the roommate wanted ad, I thought my sister was encouraging me to live with an insane person. As it turns out, he isn’t insane, he’s sexy and one hundred percent my type. Living with him will be the ultimate test of my self control.

When the combination of our love of music and my overwhelming need to take care of him meets jealousy, sparks fly. His heart may be damaged, but nothing is beyond repair.

Now all I have to do is convince him that I’m in this for the long haul, not just this moment.

Tyler
I may look like the happy-go-lucky gay guy with a big smile and more punny tees than one person should probably own. But it’s just a shield to protect my heart, the one that has been torn apart by the people who were meant to love me most.

The last thing I’m willing to do is risk the tattered shreds on my new – straight- roommate. Sure, he’s sexy as sin and has a love of music that rivals my own, but all that is just grounds for a new friendship. Nothing more. Right?

Yet, every moment we spend together tests a little bit more of my self control. When it turns out my roommate is not as straight as I once thought, I have to decide if this is one playlist I should listen to.

Will we have our own love song, or will this just be another broken-hearted ballad?

The B-Side is a low-angst, roommates-to-lovers, MM Romance novel. Featuring punny t-shirts for every occasion, killer playlists, meddling family and friends, and a happily ever after.

Teaser 2

Excerpt

“Chance.”

My hand is on the door handle, so I turn towards his voice. Only Tyler is standing much closer than I expected. He’s in my personal space, with only inches between us, an uncertain but determined look on his face.

I gulp. “Yeah?” That came out softer and raspier than I expected.

Tyler reaches out and grabs my wrist gently, pulling my hand off the door to turn me towards him. Then, he just stares up into my eyes from beneath his lashes, his eyes speaking so loudly it’s as if he’s screaming at me. He’s not saying anything, but my body is responding to his unspoken words the way lyrics intersect and wrap around a melody.

He sways towards me a little more and whispers, “I’m glad you said yes.”

Fuck it. This is either going to go up in a ball of flames and burn down to ashes or be one of the best moments of my life. My hand cups the back of Tyler’s neck and brings him closer to me and our mouths fuse together.

Tyler’s lips are soft and hesitant. Probably from the shock of me initiating the first move. Let’s be honest; we’re both surprised over that. But after a few seconds of gentle coaxing, Tyler lets out an almost imperceptible whimper and goes from a passive to an active participant.

He parts his mouth, and I dive in to caress his tongue with my own. Tyler releases my wrist and wraps his arms around my shoulders, trying to pull me closer. Our bodies are closely connected, and I can feel every inch of him against me.

Our kiss is fierce but gentle, dancing tongues and slight nips at each other’s lips. With my other hand on Tyler’s lower back, I push his hips towards mine, aligning our fronts together. I can feel his erection pressing into me through my jeans, and my dick is painfully hard trying to find its own escape.

I pull my head back just slightly to take a breath. Rather than separate from him fully, I press a kiss to the side of his mouth. We’re both breathing hard, and I’ve never been more turned on in my life. I move my lips down his cheek towards his jawline.
