A search for true love and self-acceptance
Annie Luka has always been home-schooled, but she's convinced her mother to let her attend public school for her graduating year. When it is learned that Annie Luka is actually Attila Luka; a beautiful cross-gender guy struggling with his identity, it tears a small group of friends apart. Only when they all reunite ten years later is the full extent of Attila's deception revealed, bringing some of the group closer together, and pushing others further apart.
What transpires over the next few years after the reunion leaves Attila wondering if he'll ever find true love.
What readers are saying:
"As the story progressed I started to realize that the author chose to write about a serious topic in a very conflicted way. Many transgendered people struggle with body dysphoria and the answer to the eternal question of "who am I?"... Attila shows the angst that goes along with knowing that you don't fit into a predetermined role in life, that the people that you are attracted to can't love you the way you really are, and he struggles for years trying to find a way to live happily. Overall this story shows the struggle that members of our GLBTQ community go thru on a daily basis. It shows that sometimes life should just be fluidity in motion."
"I Loved loved loved this book. Attila really had a tough time in life but ended up where he should be. The message in that is very touching. I Loved reading about the group of friends and what they all went through. I really did not expect the end but I was so happy the way it ended. The people that deserved a happy ending got it. I would definitely recommend this book. I could not put it down. You won't be sorry."
"I dried my eyeballs crying, reading this book. I love Curtis with all his mental issues. Attila is a sensitive soul, but his slutty attitude is a bit overrated. One of the best books I've read. Well done Leigh Jarrett."
"Just finished the first three books in the Tekla High Series. OMG, emotionally drained right now! Leigh Jarrett, don't ever stop writing!"

But for a few short days every year, the heat takes over and the undeniable urge to mate draws him to San Francisco and out of his self-imposed solitude.

Computer programmer Peter Callaghan likes his quiet, boring life. But like every year since his seventeenth birthday, a rampaging need to screw every guy with a heartbeat takes over. During this time, he finds he can climb out of his shell and be a normal, horny and slightly sarcastic twenty-five-year-old. Peter knows the hulking man with a biker's name will go down in history as his hottest bang, but Peter gets more than he bargained for. When the man shows up several weeks later, raving about pregnancies and mythological creatures, Peter realizes he's being held captive by a crazy person.
Except, things start to get weirder. After escaping, Peter is chased down by a rabid wolf, and Nitro pops out of nowhere to rescue him sporting fur, fangs and claws. As Peter witnesses the unimaginable, he realizes Nitro might be telling the truth about more than him being a shape-changing beast. Having been thrust into a mysterious and bizarre world, Peter is forced to rely on Nitro and something long buried inside Peter begins to awaken.
But could they possibly have a future together?

Paul, finally secure enough to stay and put down roots, must convince Danny that there is more to them than a broken promise. Not only does he want to be friends again, he wants love. He wants forever. And he wants it all with Danny.

When the two men meet at a club one night, Peter ends up in Rafe’s bed. While Peter may not necessarily like Rafe, he can’t deny how attracted he is to the alpha. Rafe is equally drawn to the younger omega, and finds Peter’s infertility a plus in his book. He’s not interested in having kids.

Mike is an eighteen-year-old high school student in 1960s Hollywood when he's picked up by Glen, who offers him money for casual sex. Mike needs the cash to take his girl to the prom, so he agrees; for him, it's just another casual encounter. But when his girl jilts him for a jock, he swears off women, leaves home, and goes into business for himself by becoming a full-time hustler of gay men.
And then he encounters Glen again, and finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. Mike's journey--from love back to hustling, from hustling to the degradation of nude modeling and porn flicks, from the slimy world of modeling and porn to becoming the sex slave of a wealthy patron, and finally, the return to true romance once more--when he finds Glen for the third time--is the inspiring story of a young man who finally comes to understand himself and his place in the world, to accept himself for who and what he really is.
