— His Very Own
Adam Roper packs his car and leaves his home in New York City to start a new life in Miami, Florida.  After a full day of driving, he stops in a small town to buy food at the local grocery store.  He offers to help an old woman with her groceries, and before he knows it, he’s eating dinner at her home with her son and his wife, the two most attractive people Adam has ever met-Scott Emerson and his wife, Sasha. Scott and Sasha once ran wild together, but settled down when they had their daughter, Colette.  Now Sasha works as the town’s only doctor, and Scott spends his days raising Colette and struggling to write.  Both of them long for a taste of their former lives, and they think a night spent with Adam will scratch that itch.   But Adam is just more than a random one-night-stand.  Can the three of them arrange a more permanent solution and give Adam a place of his very own?
— A Little Bit Bewitched
It’s nearly love at first sight for Professor Daniel Meyers when he meets his associate’s American assistant, Lucy Hensen.  Not only does she enchant him, but he soon learns that when it comes to Lucy, enchanting is not merely hyperbole.  A very powerful witch, she’s more than just Charles Cowling’s assistant.  She’s his initiate in his coven…and his lover.  If that wasn’t complicated enough for Daniel, he also finds himself fantasizing about Charles–and Charles’ mouth–at the strangest times.  When Lucy and Charles invite Daniel to a coven meeting, his curiosity compels him to attend.  There, he discovers his own latent magical abilities, yet he also wants more from Lucy and Charles than a night of magic.  In fact, he’s more than a little bit bewitched by both of them…

Description: From award-winning and best-selling gay-fiction author M. L. Rhodes……Now merged together in one paperback volume, readers can enjoy the first two stories in The Vertigo Chronicles series!

In Vertigo……With a mysterious past he can’t remember, and special powers he can’t explain, Simon Saint-Saëns hunts the creatures of darkness others fear-beings that come through dimensional rifts into this world from a world called Vertigo.  It’s a dangerous, desolate existence, and with only one exception from long ago that left him broken-hearted and riddled with guilt, Simon’s chosen to isolate himself and fight alone.  But when the man he’d once loved and thought dead makes a sudden and shocking appearance, Simon finds himself torn between his self-imposed duty and the deeply entrenched feelings he still has for Jaden Cole.  Enslaved in Vertigo since childhood, Jade was one of the innocent lives Simon saved when he first began hunting.  Simon took him in and nursed him back to health, but when their friendship grew into something deeper, he sent Jade away and cut him out of his life.  Nine years later, when a new evil stirs to life in Vertigo and targets Simon as its enemy, Jade returns.  He’s not the same innocent he was when he and Simon first met, though.  The years as a slave in Vertigo left him with a permanent and savage affliction, one he must battle constantly in order to keep a tentative grip on his humanity.  But even though he’s now a creature of darkness, he’s never stopped loving Simon and will risk everything to protect him.
And the story continues in Shattered……After a battle in which Simon is almost killed, Jade knows there’s only one being powerful enough to help them.  He and Simon journey into the dark caverns beneath the city to an ancient realm of magic and illusion.  There, Jade makes a deal that will help ensure Simon’s protection from the wraith that wants him dead.  In a world where human inhibitions are stolen at the door, however, and primal passions reign, Jade quickly finds himself losing control not only of the beast that lives within him, but a dark, dangerous secret he’s yet to share with Simon…one that could shatter everything.
