Being thrown together in extreme circumstances is not the best foundation for a relationship. Alex and Conor must juggle the demands of their jobs as police detectives with their personal lives. With Alex as demanding in the bedroom as he is at work, will Conor be able to accept that submission is not weakness. Finding out will be the most important investigation of their lives.
Rasputin’s Kiss:
What if the last thing you felt was the kiss of a knife?
Rasputin’s kiss is lethal. He’s a ghost—killing and disappearing into the night. With few leads and four bodies on his conscience, Detective Inspector Alex Courtney and his team are running on empty and it’s only a matter of time before Rasputin strikes again.
When Alex recruits a young detective to play the part of his boyfriend and provide a tempting target for a killer, he knows he is taking a huge risk. He doesn’t expect Conor Trethuan to be a perfect potential submissive. When their mutual attraction becomes more, Alex has to face the conflict between his possessive instincts and the need to push his young lover into danger.
Investigating their feelings has to come second to investigating the case. There’s no time to decide if what they feel for each other is real. With Rasputin closing in, they may not live to find out. 
Evil’s Embrace:
Never underestimate the power of obsession.
After the trauma of the Rasputin case, Detective Inspector Alex Courtney and his boyfriend, Detective Constable Conor Trethuan, are in desperate need of a holiday.
The peace and tranquillity of Cornwall can’t eradicate Conor’s nightmares, though, and the unbearable prospect of losing Alex drives him to confess feelings that he isn’t sure are reciprocated. Alex responds in the best way he knows how—by issuing orders and claiming Conor’s body as well as his heart.
Prematurely recalled to work, they are thrown into a dangerous trafficking case focused on a leather bar with a hardcore reputation, Spikes. Conor is sent in undercover, not knowing that he is only a decoy. When Alex learns that the motivation behind his team’s involvement in the case might not be as straightforward as it seems, he realises that his actions might jeopardise not just their relationship, but Conor’s life, too. A shadowy figure from Conor’s past is about to step into the light.
Tarot’s Touch:
Can truth be found in the cards?
DI Alex Courtney and his lover, DC Conor Trethuan are under enormous pressure as their team investigates an arson case and a murder.
It soon becomes apparent that the two cases are linked and the race is on to find a vicious killer. A tarot card is left with the first victim and the detectives are left to interpret the clues it provides. When Conor receives a note from the killer making reference to another card, the whole team is shaken. Their worst fears are realised when a second body is discovered, along with another tarot card.
Conor suspects he has been followed, then a hit and run leaves him injured. Alex wants nothing more than to wrap his lover up in cotton wool and protect him from the world. But is Conor the killer’s target or just a pawn in a much more sinister game? As the clues come together it seems that the motive for murder might be revenge.


From ‘Evil’s Embrace’


Alex looked at him and his heart pounded. Even in faded, ripped jeans and an old navy sweater, Conor was stunning. “The stars have got nothing on you.” He gathered Conor into his arms and cuddled him close. “You’re cold.”

“You worry about me too much.” Conor nuzzled his neck and sucked lightly. He pushed back until Alex’s thighs met the table then slid through his grasp and knelt in front of him. As he tackled the button on Alex’s jeans Conor looked up, seeking reassurance. Alex bit his lip hard, the planes of his face tight with tension, but he managed a brief nod of encouragement.

Conor pulled Alex’s jeans down to his knees, revealing that Alex wasn’t wearing underwear and that his body was speaking volumes about what he wanted to happen next. Conor licked delicately along the join between thigh and hip. He stroked Alex’s taut stomach muscles before tweaking the soft blond hair that ran down towards Alex’s pulsing cock. Conor brushed his fingers through the gradually thickening hair then ran them down the front of Alex’s thigh. As Conor took Alex’s hard cock into his mouth, he cupped his arse, pulling him closer. At the same time his balls were fondled and squeezed gently. The last thing Alex remembered thinking before sensation overcame his ability to process information was how the hell Conor managed to coordinate the three actions so proficiently.

Conor took Alex fully, despite his size, and was alternating between hard sucking and gentler twirls of his tongue. Alex groaned—it was absolute torture as he repeatedly came to the brink only for the pressure to ease slightly. Slender fingers dug into his arse as Conor worked miracles with his mouth.

“Do you want me to beg Conor? Please… You have to let me… Aagh!”

Alex grabbed Conor’s hair and pressed him hard into his groin as he was finally allowed his release. His body spasmed, again and again, as Conor continued to lick and swallow before finally pulling away. Alex shuddered, eyes closed in bliss, then finally relaxed. Conor licked him clean before letting Alex’s cock slide free of his lips.

It was a few moments later before Alex gathered enough brain cells together to remember to pull up his jeans. “Was that your way of telling me that you’re hungry?”

“Mmm.” Conor licked his lips. “Well you are quite tasty, but not that filling.”

Alex grabbed him in a forceful hug. “I can think of several ways to fill you up, none of which have anything to do with food.” He sighed as his stomach rumbled letting him know that any plans he might have been formulating would have to wait until he’d been fed.
