Software billionaire Marc Julian’s orderly life is shattered one night by a cyber-intrusion into his company’s servers. He’s always surrounded himself with the best people, but finding the culprit behind this might require a real expert…and sometimes it takes a thief to catch a thief.
Jesse Winchester and his team of “grey hat” hackers are suddenly available to Marc. Marc doesn’t know if he should trust Jesse with the keys to his company’s kingdom. After all, Jesse’s a convicted felon, sent to prison for violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. A felon sentenced to thirty-five years in prison, who mysteriously served only three years before being released…
Marc’s first company, his whole life, was shattered because he trusted the wrong person. This time there’s even more at stake, but few other options. Especially when his evil enemies, the billionaire industrialist Krom brothers, are revealed to be the source of the intrusion.
Is Jesse there to help Marc, or does he have his own history with the Kroms, his own score to settle? As Jesse and Marc spend more time together, their growing intimacy is at war with their need to win their respective battles. Soon the game they start to play with each other, against each other, becomes more exciting, more exquisitely frustrating…and more dangerous.

He’d made a mistake with Marc. He’d thought they could play a game together, to pass the time, let off steam, release stress. Marc was smart enough to know that that’s all it was.
But the look on his face, when Jesse said goodbye… The shock. The disappointment. The…
Say it. The hurt. That was when Jesse knew that for Marc, it had been more.
That was when Jesse knew that it had been more for him, too.
1 – Which was the hardest to write?
The hardest books for me are the most emotional – the one where I really put the characters through the wringer. I’d say “The Worst Best Luck” was the hardest because Peter had a hard childhood, lost his mother, then ended up with an abusive boyfriend. Man, talk about angst! I’ve had that kind of relationship, and really digging deep and bringing all that up again to put it on paper…ugh. I’m so glad that “Would I Lie to You?” doesn’t have all that darkness!
2 – Which one are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of “A Little Too Broken.” It’s enabled me to donate $3,600 to veteran support organizations, including Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. And since one of the MCs is a Afghanistan veteran who lost his lower legs, I burst into tears when I get reviews that say, “I work with these guys and you nailed it.” It was the hardest story to write – a guy who’s lost his legs and an HIV+ guy, who fall in love. OMG it could have been insanely awful if it had gone wrong, like the worst Lifetime movie ever, but it didn’t.
3 – Which one do you wish more people knew about?
“Apollo’s Curse.” It really is the best book I’ve ever written, and probably the best book I ever will write. It’s about being a writer, about the romance industry, it’s got myth, fairy tale, a literary-meta undertone and yes, romance… I should be on the cover of the NY Times Book Review for that one! But it’s a gay novel, and it’s a gay romance novel, and worst of all it’s self-published, so, that’s that.
4 – Which one is your favorite cover?
Oh, that’s tough. I just “remastered” all my novel covers to have the same look and feel, the same font. But I’m gonna go with “Apollo’s Curse” again, that picture of Francesco Cura as “Paul/Apollo” …sigh. Is it any wonder I wrote a whole novel with him as the main character’s muse?
5 – Which was the most controversial?
Well, the one that got me blocked at Amazon was for “Kyle’s New Stepbrother II,” which to my eyes, was pretty tame, but OMG TWO MEN IN BED TOUCHING OMG! Some bluenose in Arkansas will have our heads! [I’m attaching a copy, it’s so stupid.] So many gayroms have two dudes in soft focus looking in opposite directions like U2 album covers, and now I know why – heavens forfend they touch each other on the cover… So I ended up with all these innocuous covers on some of the dirtiest, filthiest stories I ever wrote, and now Amazon’s happy!
