About The Runaway Model Trilogy

Want a big, meaty series jammed full of glitz, good-looking male models, angsty rock stars, and international intrigue? Check out the Runaway Model series– the debut trilogy I dreamed of writing for years.

It all begins with The Runaway Model, a 75,000-word novel about the rise of Kyle from street kid to top model. Kyle’s music blog gets a boost from rumors about his affair with a closeted rock star, but his followers have no idea of the reality of his life on the streets of Vegas. Men? He only lets them get close enough to pick their pockets.

Until Bryce– a wildcatter who struck it rich in North Dakota. He wants one last wild weekend without the bodyguards hovering. The hustler with the sexy English accent seems perfect for no-strings sex. But now Bryce can’t get Kyle out of his head. Especially since that tempting smile is suddenly on every other magazine cover… There are twists and turns, but it comes complete with a Happy For Now ending.

Kyle and Bryce’s big, international love story continues with Runaway Model Book 2, The Runaway Millions.

I originally wrote The Runaway Model and The Runaway Millions as a single honkin’ ginormous oversized beach read of over 150,00 words. Since the story was too big for a newbie novelist to attract editors, I had to break up the novel into two books, but one day I woke up and I knew the perfect opening for The Runaway Millions.— that awkward moment when the jet gets repossessed. Kyle and Bryce have a daunting fight ahead of them, especially after Kyle is deported from America for being an undocumented immigrant, while Bryce is trapped back home fighting to save his company.

In The Runaway Model, they face one real villain– Kyle’s stalker. In The Runaway Millions, it sometimes seems as if the entire world is out to separate them, but they’re going to fight for what they deserve– their place at the top, together.

Can love survive when one man is on his way up while the other is on his way down? Especially when the gossip columns can’t help stirring the pot? The Runaway Millions is a 78,000-word full-length novel that gets Kyle and Bryce to their Happy Ever After– but not before they experience personal tragedy.

There are some trigger warnings for Millions, so check the look inside. There is NO cheating, but since Kyle is a model and close to other models, he does experience tragedy when a close friend is impacted by abuse, eating disorders, and depression. I wanted to be respectful of the fact that not all problems are easily overcome and wrapped up in a bow, but I admit I cried tears while writing one of the later chapters.

The Runaway Father, Runaway Model Book #3, is for the readers who asked to see troubled rock star Stoney find his own happy ending with a younger musician. It’s love at first sight… and then Stoney learns he’s the father to a son he never knew he had. Can Carlin cope with the seemingly endless secrets that shadow Stoney’s life? Is tragedy more difficult to overcome when you’re rich and famous and in the public eye? Perhaps, but Carlin and Stoney will find their happy ending in this 74,000-word action-packed novel. Kyle and Bryce make guest appearances.

Again, check the Look Inside for trigger warnings for Father, because Stoney is not one of these rock stars who parties just to party. He has a genuine struggle to overcome because of abuse he experienced as a child. There’s no cheating and no on-page depiction of abuse, but some readers may find this story disturbing.

There are several bonuses and extras set in this universe…

The prequel to Carlin and Stoney’s story, with all the details of how they first met, is Blackmail Boy, my first published short story on Amazon and one of my most popular. My readers love musicians, and so do I! This story is free everywhere I can figure out how to make it free, so enjoy!

The science fiction/alternative universe short story where Kyle and Stoney end up together is called “Infinity in Blue.” This is a universe where Bryce does not exist, or at least Kyle never runs away to America to meet him. This is the multiverse where anything can happen. Including dragons and spaceships. It won’t be for everybody, but if you like AUs, give it a whirl.

“Unfreezing” is a 27,000-word novella about Kyle’s agent Chance and the story of the real super-agent behind the mask. When Chance emerges as a top screenwriter, he must overcome the trauma in his past so he can achieve his dream of attending the Academy Awards. And then the brilliant younger man he hires to help him turns out to be Chance’s last opportunity to find love. Although there’s no onscreen violence, there are brief references to traumatic events. Kyle has seen only the light, superficial side of Chance, but you’ll see another side in this story.

“Next Time: A Gay Time Travel Romance”

Get it while the introductory 99 cent deal is still available! Releases September 13, and already available for pre-order at Amazon, Apple iTunes, and Kobo.

Coming soon to Barnes & Noble/Nook and Google Play. Also available in souvenir paperback copies.

And… here’s what it’s all about…

This is a famous urban legend. The hitchhiker who vanishes. I literally picked up a ghost.

There’s a problem with that. Two problems.

I don’t believe in ghosts.

And I especially don’t believe in sexy, slinky ghosts who carry big-eyed floof dogs.

Bobby’s real. And I’m going to find a way to make him stay in my world.

Next Time is a 21,000-word 85-page gay romance novella about what happens when a small-town sheriff picks up a hitchhiker who isn’t what he seems. Bobby says he’s traveling to our time from decades in the past– a past that keeps reaching ahead to snatch him back. How can Loren and Bobby find a way to be together if the fabric of time itself stands against them? This steamy gay time travel romance story features an adorable Pomeranian, lots of lemon pie, and two men who fight spacetime itself to find their happily ever after. No cheating, no cliffhangers. Some swears and sizzle for the reader who enjoys hot men who keep it real.

Choice of Cages: A BDSM Gay Romance (with Alec Stark)

Hold onto your hats! The cover reveal and paperback of my new BDSM romance collaboration with Alec Stark is here, soon to be followed by the ebook. There’s a story behind this one. Actually, “Choice of Cages” was started first, but the complexity of the criminal vs. prosecutor enemies-to-lovers theme meant we needed to pull back. Ultimately, we decided to work out the kinks and publish “Club” first.

But now “Choice of Cages” is finally ready! Grab it now at the pre-order/new release sale price of 99cents before you forget. It would be very rare for me to do future sales on a niche BDSM release, so… don’t miss out.

Our first kinky collaboration was “Club,” which you can totally grab on Amazon or as a paperback on Createspace right now— and it will be coming to all distributors in mid to late September. People are really responding well to Club, which inspired us to push through the final research and finish up with Choice of Cages. If you like BDSM, enemies to lovers, cops and slinky cat burglars… I think you’re going to get a kick out of Choice of Cages.

PS. I know everybody isn’t into kink, and I have plenty of non-BDSM solo projects coming. One of them is a gay romantic suspense mystery I think you’ll love that demands a lot of careful plotting and research so it’ll be a few more weeks before I can tell you a lot about that… I hope to be teasing some chapters soon so don’t touch that dial.

Club, A BDSM Romance Novel

Something tells me it’s going to be a hot summer. I’ve been working on a couple of kinky collaborations with Alec Stark, and the first novel is now available for preorder.

Club: A BDSM Romance is a BDSM college romance with a twist.

The new release sale is 99 cents for a VERY limited time. Order now before you forget, and the book will be delivered to your Kindle immediately.

Rich kid Nick has always longed for something deeper than the empty, easy way, but somehow he has reached senior year in college without finding what he’s looking for. When he decides to investigate the hidden world of underground fight clubs for his senior thesis, he encounters the mysterious Professor Brayden Brent.

Nick wants to be tested, but is he ready for the truth about Brayden’s kinky community of BDSM?

No cheating, no swapping around. All activity by the characters is safe, sane, and consensual. Expect a lot of mindgames and several steamy scenes with a BDSM focus. Enjoy! If you like it, hold onto your hat, because Alec and I have a second collaboration coming in July.

PS. If you’re not into BDSM or kink, no worries. I have a new romantic suspense trilogy coming up that I think you’re going to love. More about that in a few weeks…

Scripted– When Gay Romance Meets Reality TV

Hit the cover image above to read Scripted — the reviewers are loving it, don’t miss out.

A gay marriage of convenience plays out on reality TV…

Lifelong friends Noah and Brenner are determined to make it to the top in Hollywood. When they learn the new reality TV show only accepts married couples, wedding bells are in their future.

Brenner can’t shoot for second place. Only the top prize pays enough to cover his mother’s medical bills. He can’t be choosy about the roles he accepts– and he can’t tell anyone how tough it is to play the happy hubby of the guy he’s had a crush on for years.

Noah has screwed up on social media one time too many. Playing Brenner’s husband on the new show might be the only way to cash in on his bad boy image. Trouble is, he has a secret– and he doesn’t know how long he can keep it from Brenner when they’re sharing the same bed.

“Scripted” is a full-length standalone 60,000 word contemporary gay romance novel with NO cheating, NO cliffhangers, and a guaranteed Happily Ever After. Expect a tropical island where clothes mysteriously disappear, best friends are destined to become lovers, and somebody is determined to hog all the cupcakes.
