When amateur sleuth Jonty Stewart comes home with a new case to investigate, his partner Orlando Coppersmith always feels his day has been made. Although, can there be anything to solve in the apparent mercy killing of a disabled man by a doctor who then kills himself, especially when everything takes place in a locked room?
But things are never straightforward where the Cambridge fellows are concerned, so when they discover that more than one person has a motive to kill the dead men -- motives linked to another double death -- their wits get stretched to the breaking point.
And when the case disinters long buried memories for Jonty, memories about a promise he made and hasn't kept, their emotions get pulled apart as well. This time, Jonty and Orlando will have to separate fact from fiction -- and truth from emotion -- to get to the bottom of things..

On the outside, I am perfect.
On the inside, something sinister lurks.
I am sick and I cannot be cured.
I use them, abuse them, then sell them to the highest bidder.
Everything I have, I fought for, especially my sister.
She's my drug, my obsession, my reason for revenge.
But there's Glen. He's mine.
My addiction, my sanity, my destruction.
His touch calms the monster that lurks beneath my skin.
If I continue on this path, I could lose him, and I refuse to let that happen.
In my world, some people find hope.
Some find hell.
And some... find me.
My Name is Tryst is a spin off from the novel Love Lost Her Way, but can be read as a complete stand alone. This M/M novel is not a romance and also contains M/F scenes.

On an unrelenting road to self-destruction, she meets a local girl who throws her a lifeline. Grasping it desperately with both hands, Madeline begins to rediscover her spirit. But nothing is what it seems, and she finds herself plunged into an intricate game of emotional chess, the queen's pawn in what becomes a nightmare far worse than the one she left behind.
*Just so you know... Red Mist Phoenix contains scenes of a sexual nature.
This runaway might want to get caught.
El Glasse's mother controls her life. What she does, who she dates, even what she's allowed to say. El only has two ways of holding onto her freedom. One is her popular anonymous blog, hidden from Mama Glasse. The other is what she so often blogs about: her feelings for Riley, the girl who works at the ice cream parlor. Riley is fierce, free, and rides a killer motorcycle, and El cannot help but love her. But Mama Glasse can never find out about her sexuality -- unless El is willing to rebel.
When El runs away, Riley feels responsible. She knows what it's like to be alone, and she can't deny her deep desire to learn El's story. In a move she might end up regretting, she makes a devil's bargain with Mama Glasse to hunt El down.
Riley isn't trying to bring her home though, because she knows an evil spell when she sees one -- a spell of fear and shame El is finally starting to break. This huntress might lose her own heart, but it's a risk she's willing to take.
