After summarily being escorted home from the beautiful and historic Dordogne region of France by several members of the FBI, and having been told to never divulge anything about what they’ve seen or done, David and Chris discover that they’ve not only inherited a great deal of money from the estate of the late Paul Maxwell, but along with the money, they’ve also come into possession of a simple, nondescript, brown paper parcel that Paul left for them as part of their inheritance. When David finally pushes Chris to open it, the contents, along with a strange and perplexing letter, send David on a circuitous quest to understand what it all means, never suspecting the outcome would end so frighteningly close to home.
Finn M'Coul, the hero of Irish mythology, is assigned a new case by his boss Viledark, a monstrous hoglike being and an immortal shapeshifter. Together they run a private detective agency on Capitol Hill in modern-day Washington, D.C. A retired general has hired them to find his missing nineteen-year-old son, who appears to be involved with a new drug. Shotweed increases the male orgasm many times, in both duration and intensity, and is on the rise in the local gay community. It is highly addictive and may be fatal, and it only works on gay men. Finn's search leads him to a psychotic supervillain who is unleashing deadly mischief for his own perverse entertainment. Drugs, monsters, and a man with a hook stand in Finn's way as he works to save a beautiful boy and others like him.
Vernon has a quest and Harold has a secret. They have gone to the desert in search of the source of the missile that destroyed the Diamond City. But this is no harmless expedition. As they go into the depths of the desert, they learn that not only are their love and lives at stake, but so is the fate of everything they hold dear.
As the sands blow them off course, Harold grapples with the knowledge that he has been changed by his experiences in the Diamond City. Infected with the technology of the Ancients, he feels himself changing, becoming something other than human. Does Harold have the courage to tell Vernon the truth about himself? Does Vernon love Harold enough to accept that he might no longer be human? They might not have time to find out as the sleeping Progenitors stir.
Joel Patterson should be happier than ever. He's just returned from a two-week vacation in London, where he met Philip, who might be the man of his dreams. Instead, Joel's heading to Maine for his mother's funeral. He quits his job to fulfill one last request for his mother: unload his parents' albatross of an RV by delivering it to an old family friend--in California.
Somehow, Joel's high school "friend" Lincoln has invited himself along on the ride--and into Joel's bed. The other person who's invited herself along? The ghost of his mother, who still has plenty to say about her son's judgment (or lack thereof). Joel has to get the RV to San Francisco, get rid of Lincoln, and get back to Philip. It would also make him feel better if he learned what's keeping his mother tied to this earthly plane. However Joel manages it, the route is likely to be anything but straight.
Welcome to Kremfort Cove, where the men are hot as hell...literally.
Burly bearded bear Deck Waxer is a private dick with an attraction to cases of the supernatural. He comes to the city as it is transforming from a ghetto into a gay mecca—and power struggles between the various sub-groups in the community are turning violent. Most horrific is the rash of gay men who are bursting into flames in broad daylight! Deck suspects it's an epidemic of spontaneous combustion. But trying to explain the inexplicable means getting into hot fetishistic encounters with sexy, eccentric locals. Deck is willing to jump into that fire. What he fears is getting scalded...by his burning desire for a troubled go-go boy with daddy issues. As hearts and hard-ons are exposed, blood-pumping organs become vulnerable to the real danger that threatens the gay men of the city they now call Cremation Cove...
