Summary

"'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

 
A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

 
All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

 
A runner-up in the Rainbow Awards 2014, the book bundle "Mercy's Prisoner" can be read on its own or as the first volume in the Life Prison series. Friendship, desire between men, and the costs of corruption and integrity are examined in this multicultural speculative fiction series, which is inspired by prison life at the end of the nineteenth century.



 
VOLUME CONTENTS



 
"Life Prison." In the unmerciful world of Mercy Prison, there is no rule but unending pain. For Merrick, the arrival of his new guard provides hope that he may break beyond the boundaries of his life prison. But appearances can be deceptive, and Merrick does not yet recognize the danger this guard poses to his future.

 
"Men and Lads." Two guards. Two prisoners. A multitude of problems.

 
"Milord." He was the model prisoner, respectful to his guards and loyal to his fellow prisoners. What no one knew was that he held the key to destruction.

 
"Isolation." Being locked in a prison cell can cause a man to re-examine his priorities. Especially when the door never opens.

 
"Curious." His job is to guard the prisoners. But against what?

 
"Mercy's Prisoner: Epilogue."

 
"Mercy's Prisoner: Historical Note."

    My friends say I take the mating business too seriously. I’m Dick Keys, a  young, decent-looking virgin Omega. The jackpot dominant wolves like to hit—so to speak, and I have all the time in the world to pick the perfect mate. Until the dead ringer that is. Time’s running out and I need one perfect male specimen to give me gorgeous pups before I return to the dirt. 
    My target? Gordon Wells, lone wolf, Greek God in human skin and an Alpha without a pack. I figure a man like Gordon doesn’t do commitments. He’s perfect, because I only need Gordon for one little thing. I didn’t expect to fall head-over-heels for one dominant and growly Alpha. 
    Note: The book is approximately 17,000 words, has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone.

    Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh and Caleb called it home. 
    In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.  
    But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.  
    It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret. 
    Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.  
    Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?  
    Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord's name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. Previously published as: In Front of God & Everyone.
