Free spirited Ian Coulter works hard and plays harder. An ex-cop turned private investigator, Ian enjoys meeting new men and making new friends. A night out ends up with one man on the floor at his feet, and another asking for his help. Big trouble’s brewing in little Amethyst Cove, and Ian’s a step behind. He’s quick to see Rick Mohr is the man holding the flare at the end a long, dark tunnel. 
Undercover agent Rick Mohr walks a fine line, serving two masters. Insider trading, counterfeit printing plates, and a blown-up yacht have Rick stuck between two Federal agencies, one of which has been compromised. Rick has to discover the mole before it’s too late. When Ian Coulter walks into his life, Rick grabs the chance to salvage his assignment with both hands. 
It doesn’t take Ian and Rick long to discover joining forces, and sharing resources, has definite perks - ones not found in any departmental manual.

“And yet, here you sit across from me.” 
"For one thing, this is the first time I’ve actually gotten a look at you. No one ever said you were so…” He paused and blinked at me. 
I helped him out. “Hot?” 
Rick grinned. “The very word I was searching for.” 
“You’re full of it, Rick Mohr. What do you really want?” 
“I’ve heard you like to have fun—safe fun. Was I misinformed?” 
And they called me a slut. Rick had me beat for moving in on a guy fast. “I love to have ‘fun—safe fun,’ but I don’t know you. I haven’t seen you around at any of the local haunts.” 
“Well, you know how it is. Boy meets boy. Boy falls in love. Boy gets dumped after eleven years and has to work hard to get back into the swing of things.” 
I tapped the wide silver band he wore on his left ring finger. “Hmm. I’ve heard of that. Some weird word that starts with an ‘R.’” 
I snapped my fingers. “That’s the one! Can’t say as I have any first-hand experience with it.” 
Rick sighed. “I actually liked it, although I thought it would have a longer shelf-life.” 
I sipped the lemony drink I’d had such a craving for. That craving, and another stronger one, was about to land me in trouble, I just knew it. 
“I’ll tell you something, Rick. I don’t like men who cheat on their partners.” 
His level gaze met mine. “I don’t have a partner. I have an ex-partner.” 
“Why not take off the ring?” 
“Truth? I’m not quite ready to have guys hitting on me. Maybe you can help me get over the hump.” 
Years of cruising men, of reading their body language and looking into lots of pretty eyes gave me a good read on him. He wasn’t being honest with me about something, but it had nothing to do with the ring, the ex-partner, or the fact he liked to have control of the situation. The little voice inside, the one that never steered me wrong when it was time to cut and run, was silent, and I wanted to learn more about him.

    Love lights even the darkest soul. 
    Stefano Marino is a made man, a happily married West Coast Mafia boss who travels east to await the death of a family patriarch. All the old hands have gathered—of course sharks will circle when there’s blood in the water—but it’s a new hand that draws Stefano’s eye.  
    Silvio “the Barracuda” Spadaro is protetto and heir to retired consigliere Gianbattista Falchi, and a made man in his own right. Among his underworld family, being gay is a capital crime, but the young killer has never much cared for rules. The only orders he follows are Battista’s, whether on the killing field or in his bed. 
    But Silvio has needs Battista can’t fill, and he’s cast his black-eyed gaze on Stefano, as he drives the older mafioso toward urges he’s spent his whole life repressing. As much as Stefano resists, when the Russian mob invades his territory and forces him to seek aid, Gianbattista’s price brings Stefano face to face once more with Silvio—and his darkest desires.

    Broke and getting nowhere in life as a genetic scientist, a short research trip to Lake Tahoe is just what Hunter Pierce needs to recharge his batteries. 
    As an omega who’s unable to shift due to a genetic defect, his family has never failed to let him know how worthless he is. When he finds his mate in Mitch Carnelian, the sexy hotelier at The Pines Resort, he questions his beliefs about his own weakness and his fear of love. 
    Bad-boy, black-bear shifter, and now hotel owner. Mitch Carnelian vowed never to return to his childhood hometown, but the death of his parents in a car accident forced Mitch and his brother to take over the family business. When he meets Hunter, the scientist who infuriates him as much as he and intrigues him, Mitch sees that there is more to life than work and ambition. For the first time in his life, he begins to think of a future with a mate and cubs of his own. 
    The race is on for Hunter and Mitch to find a way to overcome their prejudices and save the shifter community of the Sierra Nevada Mountains for an important reason—they’re expecting a baby. 
    This is a standalone story with a happy ending and no cliffhangers. This story includes explicit love scenes and violence.

    Martin David, an eager but inexperienced financial analyst, is the newest member of the investment team at Skeiron Capital Partners in London. His boss is an avowed financial genius, but he’s also overbearing and intense. Despite his erratic behaviour, Martin can’t help being drawn to him both professionally and personally. 
    Too bad his boss doesn’t seem to feel the same. In a firm where pedigree and connections mean far more than Martin’s newly-minted business degree, Martin feels desperately inadequate—at least until he meets the enigmatic investment manager Alec Berger, who promises to help Martin establish himself in the financial community. Martin is so charmed by Alec’s sophistication and wit that he gives him data that should have stayed confidential. 
    Then the financial crisis hits. Banks burn, companies teeter on the brink, and Skeiron’s survival is at stake. Martin is pushed into the middle of the fight for Skeiron—against both the tanking economy and a ruthless enemy who’s stepped out of the shadows to collect the spoils. 
    Return on Investment is the new gay financial thriller from EPIC Award winner and Lambda Award finalist Aleksandr Voinov.
