Summary

In the Queendom of Yclau lies an underground royal prison that embraces the worst of the past and the best of the future. The Eternal Dungeon is old-fashioned in its equipment and ahead of its time in its treatment of prisoners, seeking to put their best welfare above all else. Torture is part of the process of assisting the prisoners. 
The High Seeker, Layle Smith, embodies this contradictory institution: a man of deadly impulses, the head torturer binds himself strictly by the dungeon's code of conduct. His efforts to maintain this delicate balance are altered, though, by the introduction into his life of Elsdon Taylor, a vulnerable prisoner who is coming to terms with his own darkness. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards, this 2016 edition of the omnibus on love and adventure is 460,000 words long, containing the first four volumes in the Eternal Dungeon series, as well as the prequel novella "The Unanswered Question." 
The Eternal Dungeon is a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. The series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Young Toughs, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    A star-crossed Omega holds the key to defeating the Conquest... 
     
    When Rozel crash-landed in the tiny town of Roston, he was looking for a respite from the horrors he faced at the hands of the Conquest. He didn't bargain on being thrust into the middle of an intergalactic war. He also didn't bargain on finding his fated mate on this backwater planet, either. 
     
    "Dane felt blessed, that this beautiful stranger was meant for him and him alone." 
     
    After joining the Green Leaf pack, Dane found himself yearning for the touch of his own Omega. But he didn't think it would be Rozel, the clever, adorable, alien from a planet he never even heard of. When Rozel gets pregnant and has to help fight off killer aliens, Dane finds he needs to be the Alpha his mate and baby need. 
     
    This novella has a HEA. No cheating, no cliffhangers. Each book in the Star Crossed Shifters series focuses on a different couple while expanding the overarching plot. It is recommended to read the books in order.

    With ingenuity and luck, a wilderness mishap turns into a romantic adventure where love has room to bloom! 
    NOW ON AUDIO. Though he lives as an openly gay man in DC, Nick decides to revert to his closeted alter ego when he returns home to Colorado. Someday he’d come out to his family – in six months, maybe. Or six years. Now he steels himself to survive a back-country camping and hunting trip with his brother and friends. But Nick forgets he isn’t out East anymore when he kisses his hot skiing instructor just as his brother arrives! If the awkward silence on the drive up is bad, the constant stream of gay jokes by his brother’s friends is even worse. 
    Clay likes his skiing student a lot – enough to exchange phone numbers despite his sulking brother and the pile of hunting gear in the back of their truck. Nick is smart and funny and incredibly cute. Clay texts to invite him to dinner, only to find Nick is still out on the mountain and at the mercy of the elements. When a winter storm threatens, Clay resolves to rescue Nick personally. He thinks Nick is “the one” – but only if their new relationship survives the close quarters of a cozy snow cave. 
    BODY HEAT is a contemporary gay romance with a happy ending.
