Former go-go boy turned detective Scotty Bradley is back!
When an old family friend apparently commits suicide from his French Quarter balcony, Scotty’s life accelerates from boring to exciting again in a nanosecond. Why would anyone want the old man dead, and what were they looking for in his ransacked apartment? It’s up to Scotty, Frank, his crazy family, and friends to get to the bottom of this bizarre mystery—and when an old, all-too-familiar face turns up, it’s not just Scotty’s life that’s in danger, but his heart.

Miguel Reyes is not only the first openly gay governor of Florida, he’s also the man behind Referendum 65. If passed, Florida will be the first Southern state in the U.S. to include marriage equality. When the governor’s fourteen-year-old son, Alejandro, is kidnapped, the message is clear: Kill the bill or we kill the boy!
Agent Buck 98 is given only one week to find and rescue Alejandro. It’s a race against time, and his opposition includes: the boy’s tutor who has suddenly fled the scene, an anti-gay reverend leading protests against the governor, a countess with a rifle and three annoying dogs, and then there’s the romantic pitfalls with a very handsome security guard.
Buck is back on another case, and the alligators aren’t the only things snapping at his heels.
