After his parents die in a tragic car accident, dragon shifter Caerwyn Lewis doesn’t know how to grieve properly, not that he really has time.

What are readers saying about The Legend of Nyx?
★★★★★ This is not your normal shifter read! A shifter who gets bit by a vampire and now cannot shift so is stuck in the last body they shifted to!! Nyx / Nicky is a strong and snarky character who you can’t help but like. The author has done an incredible job building this world and the storyline draws you in and keeps hold of you. (Amazon Reviewer)
★★★★★ The thing I just love about this literary universe is the characters. They’re all REAL. They’re all relatable, humans. They have personalities, wants and, desires. They make mistakes and atone for them. They blunder and then have to apologize for it. Characters you think are unredeemable later show their humanity and you realize they weren’t as bad as you initially thought. (Amazon Reviewer)
★★★★★ Theo did it again! I'm impressed with the characters as always. I've read the entire series this card and can't wait to continue reading. Though I'm a strong Christian, I enjoy reading fantasy. This subject was not my favorite, but after finishing the book & reading the Notes from Author, I took a different view, more thought provoking. Excellently done! (Amazon Reviewer, Scared Shiftless)
The Legend of Nyx is a paranormal enemies-to-lovers, closed door, slow burn LGBTQ+ romance and an edgy urban fantasy story featuring a vampire slayer and shapeshifter. It is a standalone adventure but also situated within Monroe's Gates of Eden Universe.

Book 1 of 5 | Romantic Suspense | Hurt/Comfort | Trauma | Age Difference
The Auctioned Series is a journey packed with action, nail-biting suspense, family, and love. In Gray and Darius’s fight for freedom and a future where they aren’t haunted by the ghosts of their pasts, they’ll make you laugh, cry, swoon just a little bit, and probably yell at your e-reader.
Gray Nolan was just another happy-go-lucky college dude when his ordinary existence got interrupted, and he became a human trafficking statistic. He didn’t know where in the US they kept him, or if he was even still there. Or if it mattered… He just wanted to die.
After several weeks of abuse, he and seven other young men were taken aboard a luxurious yacht where they were to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Beaten, shattered, and all but defeated, Gray watched his buyer step out of the shadows in a swirl of his own cigarette smoke.
Darius Quinn had vowed never again to find himself in a situation like this. His days as a private military contractor were over. No more missions, no more risks, no more personal attachments. Yet, here he was, after weeks of searching, face-to-face with his broken prize.
It was time to get the knucklehead back to his family.
Quick and easy was Darius’s plan. Then everything went sideways.
This story takes place in Cara Dee’s Camassia Cove Universe, a fictional town where all books/series’ stand on their own, unless otherwise stated. The Auctioned Series should be read in the following order: Auctioned, Stranded, Deserted, Played, and Finished.
In this witty and heartfelt rom-com debut for fans of Jasmine Guillory, Emily Henry, and Tessa Bailey, an Indian American woman signs herself and her boyfriend up for a matchmaking site to prove they're a perfect match, only to be paired with her ex instead.
High school sweethearts Rita Chitniss and Milan Rao were the golden couple, until the day he broke her heart. Now, six years later, Rita has turned her passion for furniture restoration into a career and has an almost-perfect boyfriend, Neil. The last thing she needs is for Milan to re-enter her life, but that's exactly what happens when her mother, an unfailing believer in second chances, sets them up. Milan is just as charming, cocky, and confident as he was back in school. Only this time, he actually needs her business expertise, not her heart, to flip a hard-to-sell house for his realty agency.
While Rita begrudgingly agrees to help, she's not taking any risks. To prove she's definitely over him, she signs herself and Neil up on MyShaadi.com, a Desi matchmaking site famous for its success stories and trustworthy enough to convince everyone that she and Neil are the new and improved couple. Instead, she's shocked when MyShaadi's perfect match for her isn't Neil...it's Milan. Ignoring the website and her mother is one thing, but ignoring Milan proves much more difficult, especially when she promises to help him renovate the beach house of her dreams. And as the two of them dive deeper into work—and their pasts—Rita begins to wonder if maybe her match wasn't so wrong after all....
Love is cheap. Love is cruel. Love can’t save us.
Victor Lang had everything—looks, money, fame. A chance to become the greatest swimmer in history. Until a failed dope test brought him crashing down.
According to the rumors, he turned into a recluse, a drug addict, a whore. Broken beyond repair. Incapable of love.
And for some reason, he’s set his sights on me.
A freak accident in his pool throws me into a world of wealth and status and people who are willing to do anything to get what they want. Before I know it, I’m being paid to fly to Italy and pose as his boyfriend. Trapped at his side, I learn what it means to truly hate someone.
Turns out, that’s exactly what he wants.
I can’t save him, and I can’t love him. But as things fall apart and I discover the truths he’s hiding, I learn that hate can be greater than love—an obsession, a prayer, dark days and darker nights, a need to be the only one who hurts him. Hate can heal the worst wounds love leaves behind.
But I have problems of my own, a broken spirit and loved ones to protect. And I’m scared to face the things he’s waking up inside of me.
A gritty, emotional, epic hate-to-love slow burn with an inexperienced top and his bratty bottom, hurt/comfort, obsession, and healing.
**Contains dark themes, adult content, and potential triggers, though every effort was made to portray them thoughtfully and sensitively.

The Game Series #1
In a perfect world, Lucas West would meet someone in one of the BDSM communities he was active in, someone who ached for a Daddy Dom as much as Lucas longed for a Little to care for. They would date, play, build something that was just for them, and share a future together.
In a perfect world, Colt Carter would get through his next deployment and then move closer to DC where he could create at least a semblance of a personal life. He wanted something outside of the Air Force, something kinky, something worth leaving everything behind for eventually. For years, he’d kept his inner Sadist and Daddy Dom locked up, only letting him out to play on rare occasions.
In a perfect world…
In reality, Lucas and Colt met each other.
The Game Series is a BDSM series where romance meets the reality of kink. Sometimes we fall for someone we don’t match with, sometimes vanilla business gets in the way of kinky pleasure, and sometimes we have to compromise and push ourselves to overcome trauma and insecurities. No matter what, one thing is certain. This is not a perfect world—and maybe that’s why the happily ever after feels so good.
"The way the tale was written is riveting and creates a gamut of emotions as we go through what the main characters are experiencing. Ms. Jay Hogan is an amazing find for me this year. I love the way she weaves her stories and the details in every scene and emotion. You will fall in love, experience fear and anger, be annoyed, hope and dream in different parts of this love story." -Love Bytes, 5-stars
Two years ago, I made a mistake, a big one. Then I added a couple more just for good measure. I screwed up my life, but I survived. Now I have the opportunity for a fresh start. Two years in NZ. Away from the LA gossip, a chance to breathe, to rebuild my life. But I’m taking a new set of rules with me.
I don’t do relationships.
I don’t do commitment.
I don’t do white picket fences.
And I especially don’t do arrogant, holier-than-thou, smoking hot K9 officers who walk into my ER and rock my world.
One thing for certain, Dr. Michael Oliver is an arrogant, untrustworthy player, and I barely survived the last one of those. He might be gorgeous, but my daughter takes number one priority. I won’t risk her being hurt, again. I’m a solo dad, a K9 cop and a son to pain-in-the-ass parents.
I don’t have time for games.
I don’t have time for taking chances.
I don’t have time for more complications in my life.
And I sure as hell don’t have time for the infuriating Dr. Michael Oliver, however damn sexy he is.
EVERYTHING IS CALM AND QUIET IN THE SLEEPY LITTLE TOWN OF SAINT LAKES. THAT IS, UNTIL THE WITCH COMES TO TOWN AND STIRS THE POT, MIXING IN DANGER.
Lucas wanted to be a normal human being, but normal isn't possible when balls of light come out of his hands and he's fated to mate a dragon shifter.
Lucas Speck had been a guy who worked at an office supply store and house-sat for his snowbird parents. He was nobody special. Or that’s what he thought until the headaches and other weird things begin to happen. When people start chasing him his whole life gets turned upside down.
Bennett Somerset is a dragon shifter who likes his quiet life in his quiet town. He isn’t looking for complications. He already has a family that defines the words weird and crazy to perfection. Good thing they live in a small town where nothing ever happens. That is until he smells the most delicious thing in the world and realizes it’s his mate. His little witch of a mate complicates things in ways no one is prepared for, least of all Bennett.
Leave it All is the first book in the Saint Lakes. An Action & Adventure Paranormal Romance with dragon shifter and witch fated mates.
I’ve never been a strings-free sex type of guy, but when my best friend encourages me to have my first ever anonymous hookup, I figure, why not? One night of steamy sex with a stranger and then I’ll focus back on recovering from my toxic break-up.
Only I’m not prepared for how incredibly hot the sex is.
Nor am I prepared to run into him again.
Because it turns out my anonymous hookup might not be so anonymous after all…
This low-angst 29,000-word MM romantic novella is full of fun banter, steamy times, sweet times and contains a few surprises along the way.
"Intriguing, ambitious, and pretty damn delightful...written with passionate conviction and without compromise. 'Hugh' has the flavour of a queer Tom Jones or a queerer Tristram Shandy. This is a genuinely impressive accomplishment, as is the satirical tone, and the archness of dialogue.” – Alexis Hall, author of Boyfriend Material
This romp through 18th century England is like nothing told in the era of Tom Jones – a sparkling, humorous, and poetical coming-of-age 242 years in the making.
From an old family trunk comes a manuscript which never saw the light of day. Its pages tell of the life, times, and blackmail of a young queer aristocrat stepping into 1768 Society…
A time of wig powder and heeled slippers.
Duels and social climbers, when the most popular member of the government is declared an outlaw. Hugh Entwistle enters this world wealthy, witty, and well-connected. Everything to be a success – everything, except that thing stuck to the bottom of his heeled slipper.
Hugh’s is a story of secret encounters and significant looks. Hushed separations and sobriquets. But if he dares define Liberty, he might be asked to confront a blackmailer. Asked to confront a father. And before he can make a marriage proposal, follow his heart, and accept one.
Hugh is a rollicking tale of comic angst, and a celebration of the wit, beauty, and absurdities of a glorious age.
Praise for Hugh: A Hero without a Novel:
“...I found it absolutely fascinating…Sui generis, thoroughly interesting, fabulously vivid in place and time, and I’m glad I read it.”– K.J. Charles, author The Magpie Lord
“...a work of queer historical archiving that’s as admirable and remarkable as its hero.”– Kirkus Reviews

"Salem Burning" is a fast-paced, brand-new take on the Salem witch trials.
"The characters yank, twist, and shatter your heartstrings."
"I don't think I've ever read such an incredibly sexy yet tortured pair."
"If you're looking for sweet and sexy M/M romance, this ain't it, folks... move along. If, however, you're looking for prolonged emotional and physical hurt/comfort against a rich fantasy backdrop... DING DING DING!"
"I would expect this series to appeal to fans of CS Pacat's Captive Prince and Jex Lane's Beautiful Monsters."

Levin and his companions crisscross the globe in a race to obtain the diamonds before the spurned financier and an approaching hurricane can disrupt their efforts.
