Ozmosis Cover


Henry and Hatter are back in this sequel to Mad About the Hatter! They’ve fallen into a comfortable life together after the events in the first book. But on a day trip to visit the Tweedle Brothers, they happen across a wayward troop of flying monkeys from Oz who need them to help get the troop back home.

In Oz, Hatter reluctantly agrees to accompany Henry on a tour of the land. They soon find out Oz is in serious trouble, with the balance of Good and Evil upset after Dorothy killed the last wicked witch.

Henry and Hatter are drawn into a quest to find a new source of Evil for Oz to restore the balance and save Oz – and all the adjacent lands, including Wonderland – from destruction.

Morning dawned in Wonderland much the same as it did everywhere else—during an obscenely early hour of the day and heralded by the rising of a giant ball of flaming gas in the east.

Hatter wasn’t overly fond of mornings. He didn’t actively hate them, per se, not like he hated anchovy-and-pickled dodo-egg omelets, for example, but he didn’t like them nearly as much as he did cherry tartlets. He positively loved a good cherry tartlet. Just the thought of one, hot and bubbly, the crust golden brown, fresh from the oven, made his stomach growl with hunger.

He wondered briefly if the baker might have any today, but then remembered it was Tuesday, the day the baker stubbornly and incomprehensibly insisted on making pumpkin pies instead of tartlets, cherry, or otherwise. Feeling disheartened and not just a wee bit cranky, Hatter was tempted to pull the covers up to his chin and drift off to sleep again, except he couldn’t because it was morning, and that inconsiderate, irritatingly bright, giant ball of flaming gas was shining directly through his window.

Which was exactly the trouble with mornings, Hatter mused. They came far too early in the day. If they arrived at a decent hour, perhaps afternoon, or better still, after four o’clock tea time, he might like mornings much better, but since they insisted on inevitably arriving while decent folk were still sleeping, stealing into the world like a thief, and rudely waking people from their perfectly fine cherry-tartlet dreams, he found it practically impossible to like them at all. Not for the first time, he thought they oughtn’t to be allowed.

Henry, on the other hand, and rather foolishly in Hatter’s opinion, didn’t share Hatter’s views on the subject of mornings. Henry liked mornings, a fact that Hatter, should he live to be eleventy-thousand years old, would never understand. It was a character flaw on Henry’s part, Hatter reasoned. Perhaps a brain disorder of some kind.

Without fail, every morning, with as much precision as one of Rabbit’s clocks, Henry bounced out of bed, altogether far too bright and chipper than was decent.

“Good morning, Hatter!” Henry poked his head into Hatter’s room and grinned a horrifically sunny smile. “Rise and shine!”

There was an expression Hatter found thoroughly unlikeable. It was impolite enough to order someone to rise, but to command them to shine as well as simply discourteous, and quite presumptive, in his opinion. He simply refused to do it. He would drag himself from his warm comfortable bed, wash behind his ears, brush his teeth, dress, and make his way to the breakfast table, but he flatly refused to shine while doing so. Not so much as a glimmer of a glow, not even a twinkle, not even for Henry, of whom Hatter was even more fond than cherry tartlets.

This isn’t his sister’s Wonderland….

Henry never believed his older sister, Alice’s, fantastic tales about the world down the rabbit hole. When he’s whisked away to the bizarre land, his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the Mad Hatter. Hatter—an odd but strangely attractive fellow—just wants to avoid execution. If that means delivering “Boy Alice” to the Queen of Hearts at her Red Castle, Hatter will do what he has to do to stay alive. It doesn’t matter if Henry and Hatter find each other intolerable. They’re stuck with each other.

Along their journey, Henry and Hatter must confront what they’ve always accepted as truth. As dislike grows into tolerance and something like friendship, the young men see the chance for a closer relationship. But Wonderland is a dangerous place, and they first have to get away with their lives.

Alistair Cover


Alistair falls down the rabbit hole and becomes the new Alice. Can he save Wonderland’s magic by falling in love with his fated mate?

My life sucks until Bianco shows up. He’s a gorgeous albino who promises me a fun adventure while looking like a handsome prince from a fairy tale. I happily follow him down the rabbit hole in the hopes of getting up to some sexy shenanigans.

Imagine my shock when I discover he’s the famous White Rabbit from the books and one of the last shifters left in Wonderland! Even more surprising is finding out I’m a descendant of the original Alice, which means I’m the only person who can bring the missing magic back to their world.

That’s all well and good, but our incredible chemistry is highly distracting. It’s impossible to resist our intense attraction when I’m his fated mate, so why bother trying? But maybe there’s a way to have it all.

What if forming a mating bond with Bianco is the way to make all my dreams come true and save Wonderland at the same time?

Alistair in Wonderland is the first book in the Wonderland Ever After series. This sweet-with-heat MM paranormal fantasy romance features affectionate shifters, fated mates, and a magical gay romance. These books have hilarious characters to adore, a lot of sexy fun times, and no angst love stories that make you laugh and swoon. Escape into this Wonderland full of whimsy, where everyone gets a HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed in order.

Chapter 1: Alistair Hargreaves

The sudden feeling of a man pressing close against my back made me stiffen in surprise. His deep voice had my dick’s immediate attention as he murmured in my ear, “You look like you want to run away.” His sexy British accent got me all hot and bothered, which outweighed my outrage at being manhandled by some entitled billionaire looking for a new boy toy.

His cologne was a dark, woodsy scent that stirred desire within me. The romantic in me wanted to breathe him in deep and give myself over to whatever sinful pleasures he wished to bestow upon me. The horny-virgin part of my brain was ready for him to bend me over the nearest table and fuck me in front of everyone until I screamed his name while I came harder than I ever had in my life. I had never experienced such a visceral reaction to a person before. It was a little disorienting.

When I didn’t react, he reached out and wrapped an arm around my waist. He pulled me flush against his firm body as his lips ghosted over the tip of my ear in a way that made me go weak in the knees as my cock grew rock hard.

My gaze darted around the room to make sure everyone was ignoring us. Somehow, the world had gone into slow motion, as if I was a step outside of time, with the man pressed against my back. Satisfied that no one was paying attention, I finally found my voice. “Can you blame me?”

His dark chuckle reverberated through me, filling me with a lustful need to ride his cock until I came all over his stomach. “Not at all. It’s so dreadfully dull here.” I stiffened with a startled noise when he traced the shell of my ear with his tongue, putting me at risk of coming in my pants like a teenager with no self-control. “Shall we entertain ourselves with an adventure somewhere a little more private?”

My cock was desperately interested in what was being offered. I had never done more than kiss a guy before, but if the man was even half as hot as his voice sounded, I’d be down to let him do anything he wanted to me. Hell, if he was only a tenth as sexy as the fantasy version of him in my head, he could buy me with his millions for his personal collection. Screw having morals. At least I’d finally have sex.

Curious about the handsome stranger, I turned to face him. I had been prepared to see a gross ogre of a skeezy rich guy ogling me, but he was the most beautiful man I had ever seen in my life. He appeared to have been born from moonlight, stardust, and dreams come true. Dressed in a white suit with a metallic pink vest and tie, he resembled a prince who had stepped out of the pages of a fairy tale. His hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes were pure white, giving him a striking appearance. He had the most unusual dark pink eyes, which were bright with amusement at my stunned expression. Although they were probably contacts, they looked startlingly real.

The combined effect of his appearance and scent sparked my arousal into a roaring blaze. I didn’t disguise the fact that I was fully erect because when someone was that sexy, he was probably used to it. I swallowed hard as I gazed up at him in awe. “What kind of adventure?”

Hopelessly Hooked Cover


Sail in, sail out. Steal a man’s heart and plenty of his art.

Warren, darling

Try as I may, I can’t get the voice of the Jolly Roger’s captain out of my head. Captain Hook believes my magic keeps him safe, but in truth I’m pushing him out to sea.

We are destined to be together, but what Hook doesn’t know can’t hurt me. Can’t tempt me away from the sanctuary I’m trying to build on land. No matter how badly I want to taste the salt water on his skin.

Captain Hook

The difference between a curse and a blessing is perspective. What was meant as a punishment has given me a wonderful life of piracy. The only cost is I’m bound to the mage who cast the spell.

Warren is a darling artist who claims to get seasick with black hair, and one sky-blue eye that captivates me like only the ocean can. If he’s as uninterested as he claims, why does he say my real name like my heart is the only treasure that matters?

Hopelessly Hooked is a standalone gay fantasy romance featuring a fated mates trope, an art loving pirate, scorching sexy magic, and a guaranteed a happily ever after!

IG Sized HH Teaser 1


Men who lived at sea always looked like rough trade. But their captain had a duality around all those hard muscular edges with black curls flowing down to his shoulders.

My first brush with fate had been when his crew searched the town for a healer and brought me onto their docked ship. The Captain’s hand was completely missing, and blood-soaked rags covered where the limb should have been.

Given the extent of the injury, it was no surprise they wanted a mage instead of a regular doctor. This hadn’t been the only time I’ve bore witness to the end result of a sharp cleave. But being alone in a room with a pirate captain while his crew waited outside blocking off any escape made my hands sweat.

“I can’t reattach limbs.” My words came out in a panic, weaker than they had been in years. Strangers in town often grew upset when I couldn’t do the impossible after their trip to the castle. What would bloody pirates do?

The Captain looked at me with amusement in his sharp, beautiful eyes marked by heterochromia. The mismatch made one brown and the other blue. “What’s your name?” The voice was friendly despite the amount of pain he must have been holding back.


“Well, Warren,” he said with a confident smile before his voice dropped to a near whisper that I instinctively leaned closer to hear. “My name is James, and I don’t need you to return the hand. Heal me as I am.”

My face flushed, and I realized how rare and precious that specific truth was. “Why would you tell me that?” I blurted out, my voice stronger now. “Don’t you know the power a true name has with a mage?”

“Aye,” James said, giving the vulnerability a beat. “But you seem more scared than I. No one fears a pirate with a commonplace name.” He offered his wounded arm out as if to remind me he needed care. “If you’d please.”
