Menage for the Holidays


 Detective Aldo Nash could almost hear his brain humming as it worked to categorize the myriad scents tingeing the cool night air: cedar and sea spray, dry asphalt, cooling car engine, and most potent of all, the warm, aroused flesh of the man Aldo had pinned beneath him.

Aldo slid practiced hands over the slim, partially clad form, and the man moaned softly in response, his whole body writhing instinctively closer as he arched into Aldo’s touch. Aldo pulled in another heady lungful and smiled in contentment. On nights like these, he purely loved his job.

Those are the opening lines of  Finders Keepers, my alternative world, sci-fi menage releasing this week from Loose Id. I know sci-fi and menage are probably not the first words that spring to mind when most people think Holiday Story, but that's how I like to describe the book that came to me in a dream.

I mean that literally, by the way. I woke up one morning with the entire premise clear in my head--including the characters' names, the first three chapters and the title. I didn't know how it would end, exactly, other than in the very vaguest of ways. It was a romance. I was pretty sure that meant it would have to have an HEA. With three characters, however, getting everybody there took a little more work than I's expected. To get to their happy-ever-after all three of them will have to admit to and overcome their feelings of guilt and grief, jealousy and despair, love and anger and loss.


While I tend to find each new release just as exciting as the first, I'm especially excited about this one. I hope you'll enjoy it too.



Sometimes finding what you want is the easy part.  

Caleb is a bionic soldier with little-to-no memory of his past. He's seeking the truth about himself and those missing memories.

Aldo's an undercover cop who just might have the answers to Caleb's questions. But if Caleb's the man Aldo thinks he is, how can he let him get away a second time?

Then there's Sally; she's an ER physician who used to be married to Aldo's late partner, Davis. Sally's not dealing with widowhood very well. In fact, it's getting harder, every day, just to find a reason to keep getting out of bed. If the truth about the men's shared past comes to light, she could lose them both. Along with her last, best reason to go on living.

This holiday season, chance will bring them together and give them an opportunity to help one another find what they each want most. But every gift comes with a price. And keeping what they've found once they've found it? Yeah, that's gonna be the hard part.
