— Draconus
An earth dragon, long-lived and skilled in the ways of magic, Magnus Silverclaw has hunted relentlessly for his errant human lover.  He is furious and bitter over what he considers Leida’s betrayal and seeks retribution by having her sentenced to four years of enforced servitude to him–in a position far below the one she once occupied as his mistress.  He does not anticipate her horrified reaction to the punishment or the reason for it, and her revelation leaves him reeling with shock and jealousy.  After nearly four years of evading capture, Leida of the Glimmer South stands bound before a tribunal of dragon judges, accused of theft and the illicit use of dragon magic.  Once the favorite of the dragon lord, Magnus Silverclaw, she faces punishment for a crime considered high treason among dragons.  Leida is still deeply in love with Magnus but refuses to divulge her reasons for why she stole from him and left without warning four years earlier.  Only the threat of enslavement makes her reveal a carefully guarded secret, one that can either reunite her with Magnus or tear her from him forever…
— Wyvern
Elsbeth Weaver, a talented fiddler, gave up the man she loved to care for her ailing grandfather.  Now, eight years later, she must risk her life to save her grandfather from a lynching, by playing for the wyvern that has terrorized her village throughout the summer.  When she comes face-to-face with the beast at the haunted cliffs of Maldoza, she is both terrified and fascinated.  Something about the creature reminds her of her long-lost lover, something more than just a shared name.  Alaric has never forgotten nor stopped loving the human woman he left in a dusty village almost a decade earlier.  So when he meets her again on the cliffs, wearing old dragon armor and playing her fiddle as if her heart would break, he is overjoyed.  But Elsbeth never knew the man to whom she had given herself was only an illusion for the wyvern.  Alaric must convince her that the heart of the beast is no less devoted than the heart of the man, and that leaving her a second time will not last another decade.

Paperback (70k words / 198 paperback pages)
Description: From M. L. Rhodes, award-winning and best-selling author of gay fiction……Now merged together in one paperback volume, readers can enjoy the first two parts of Jesse McIntyre’s and Robert Bauer’s love story!
— Passion
As the owner and CEO of his own company, Robert Bauer has spent the past fifteen years building his business into a multi-million-dollar corporation.  It’s taken all his time and energy, which hasn’t left much room for a personal life, especially a love life.  That’s fine with Robert because he doesn’t believe in the “L word” anyway.  Lately, however, every time he goes to his favorite bar, he can’t keep his eyes and thoughts off Jesse McIntyre, the gorgeous bartender with the soulful blue eyes.  Even though Robert’s not looking for a relationship, and tries to shake the attraction, he can’t get the younger man out of his system.  There’s just one problem…he believes Jesse’s straight.  Jesse’s been on the run from his old life for the past two and a half years.  Even though he slings drinks at a gay bar, he has a hard and fast rule about never hooking up with customers.  He’s been down that road before, and though his physical wounds have healed, the emotional ones aren’t so easy to forget.  He lets his customers assume he’s straight because it makes it easier to keep his distance.  That is, until the businessman with the sexy smile starts coming into the bar.  Jesse’s drawn to Robert, even though he knows there’s no way a wealthy, powerful man like that would ever be interested in a tattooed, college drop-out bad boy like him.  But even if Robert weren’t his opposite, it wouldn’t matter anyway, because Jesse’s determined not to break his rules for anyone.  When fate throws them together, and they find themselves alone for a weekend, the passion that has silently simmered for months ignites a firestorm that leaves them both shaken.  Will it be enough, though, to convince Robert, who’s sworn to never fall in love, that he might be pushing away the best thing that’s ever happened to him?  Or to force Jesse to face his fears once and for all and learn to trust his heart?
— Satisfaction
Five months later, though the fire’s still burning sinfully hot between Robert and Jesse, the realities of their opposite lifestyles begin to take a toll.  Robert’s constant business travel weighs heavily on Jesse.  When he realizes they’re having more phone sex than real sex, and he’s sleeping alone the majority of the time despite the fact he and Robert are supposedly living together, he worries there’s more behind Robert’s trips than just business.  Jesse’s sure Robert’s avoiding him, avoiding them, but through the years his lover has built so many thick, protective walls to guard his emotions, Jesse finds it tough to get past them and discover why.  He loves the man like crazy, and doesn’t doubt Robert loves him, too, yet will love be enough to overcome whatever is haunting Robert and heal the rift that’s slowly tearing them apart?
