A mercenary and a disgraced pastor. The fire blazing inside their remote cabin just might melt the snowstorm raging outside.
Fresh off the death of a member of his team, all Roman wants is a quiet place to decompress. Which is why he’s at the cabin he hasn’t visited in ages. He expected some dust and a few cobwebs, not a stranger sleeping in his bed.
Tate Galvin just wants to lay low after the scandal of being publicly outed. His mentor’s cabin is the perfect place…until he opens his eyes to find two guns pointed at his head.
A mix-up has them snowed in with no one to talk to but each other and nothing to do but give in when attraction proves too intense to ignore. But snow eventually melts and fires burn themselves out. So what’s left for one man who’s commitment-averse and another whose heart already belongs to a higher power?
From the AWARD-WINNING author of the bestselling BROOKLYN SINNERS series comes a dark, twisted tale of pain, revenge, and the deadliest emotion of all...love.
A clash of wills between predators…
He’s been living underground for a long time, but the only thing guaranteed to bring Daniel Nieto back to the surface is the identity of his wife’s killer. With the whisper of one name, he puts it all on the line for vengeance. He’s got plans for Stavros Konstantinou.
The title of monster fits too well for Stavros to want to be anything other than what he is. Time spent in Daniel Nieto’s dungeon, chained and tortured, will never change that. Starved of food, sunlight, and freedom, he waits for an opening to turn the tables on the only man who’s ever come close enough to scare him.
Somewhere between the slide of knife against skin, and the drip of blood on cold concrete, things change. Grief and hatred collide with lust and obsession, and this time Daniel and Stavros are on the same side. This time, they’re fighting a losing battle against a connection forged by much more than a love of violence and bloodshed.
In a war this bloodied, what do you do when the bodies start hitting the floor?

There’s no guilt like knowing you’re the reason your best friend is dead…except maybe the guilt of falling for his fiancé.
Temple ran from Hadley Cove two years ago, chased by remorse and Vik’s harsh words of blame. He’s back, expecting more hostility from his dead best friend’s fiancé. Instead, he finds commiseration, apologies, and reciprocated attraction.
Somewhere between grief and loss lies hope and healing, but can what’s blossoming between them be real?
Does Temple want it to be?
His lover is gone. Taken by an unknown enemy, one who hasn’t yet realized that Daniel would willingly stride into hell to get his Diablo back. The pain of losing another person he loved would bring any other man to his knees, but Daniel only accepts carpet burns from one special Greek.
Too busy being in love, Stavros Konstantinou never even noticed the betrayal coming until it was too late. When the life he’s fought so hard to build is thrown into chaos, he finds himself scrambling to unmask his enemies. Now, with Daniel at his side, he’s out for revenge.
The hunt is on.
Bodies are piling up.
And they’re sending out a warning.
Before you even think to go up against us…
Dig Your Grave.
This is book two in Daniel and Stavros’ love story. It is strongly advised that you read book one, Call the Coroner, first.
Pretending came far too easily for Sullivan Black. One of the reasons he rejected his privileged family and joined the FBI. But those dangerous assignments take something from him every time, leaving him a mess, unfamiliar even to himself. As he struggles to shed the skin of his latest op, he finds solace in the most random of places.
Bar manager, Carter Renault’s only intention was to escort the lonely stranger out of his place before he locked up. Yet somehow they end up in an alley, Carter’s pants around his ankles. Their encounter is intense. A onetime thing. Except months later Sullivan is sneaking through Carter’s window, appearing and disappearing at random. The blistering-hot sex doesn’t hide the obvious torment Sullivan is going through, but Carter doesn’t want to be caught in the middle.
Just when he thinks he’s seen the end of that undercover life, Sullivan gets pulled back in. But this time, his identity is no longer a secret, and the aggressive need he has for Carter could get the other man killed. To set everything right, Sullivan has to face the one man he loves and hates in equal measure…his twin.
A former thief set on revenge. A younger man cut off by his wealthy family. This marriage is in name only.
Kannon Jeffers knows a thing or two about regret. Cut off from his powerful and influential family, he’s betrayed the last person he’d ever want to hurt. Now he’s alone, doing things he never thought he would for money. Focused on getting back into his family’s good graces, he doesn’t have time for anything else.
Until an enigmatic stranger blackmails him into marriage.
Preacher has been biding his time to carry out a death-bed promise. One look at Kannon and his plans shift into overdrive. Blackmailing him is easy enough, but living with Kannon, keeping secrets from him, is harder. Because despite the unflappable front he projects, Preacher has been craving his husband from the second their eyes met.
A former criminal and a spoiled rich kid shouldn’t have anything in common, but they do. A marriage neither man wanted morphs into something more as they find themselves helpless against the heat between them. It could all be real, if only Preacher can lay his past to rest without destroying himself and Kannon in the process.
Craving You is the second book in the Dread+Terrible series but can be read as a standalone. It’s light on angst, heavy on heat, and features an MC who loves makeup and feminine clothes, age-gap romance, enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, and sexy times in an elevator. Also, there are some naughty moments with high heels. As with any of Avril’s books, there is no cheating and you can always expect a Happily Ever After.
From the award-winning author of Call the Coroner comes a story of secrets and obsession...
A relationship built on one man’s obsession…
Theirs was a connection that began and ended in the shadows. A bullet stole it away, setting two men adrift. Bishop waits in the darkness for light to shine once more, while Eddie is left with no way to describe just what he needs when he has everything his heart should desire.
In the span of time between that gunshot and now, they’ll meet again and again. One oblivious, the other fighting his crooked nature to earn back the memories they made. And the life that should’ve been theirs.
Remember Me is a standalone M/M romance with stalking, amnesia, mental illness, and found family themes.
Theirs is a perfect marriage. Until a home invasion exposes secrets, lies, and shatters everything Elias and Lucky hold dear.
Too many bodies. Rivers of blood. Elias Kote sees them all in his sleep. Only the love of his husband and daughter keeps him alive and fighting. This contract killer is exhausted and weighed down by all the lies he tells every day. Who he is. What he does. How he came to have all he has. Elias can attest to nothing remaining hidden forever, but his secrets, when they do drop, shatters everything. Everyone. And leaves him scrambling to make his family whole again.
Ten years together. Three legally wed. One with their daughter. And in one night Lucky Mousasi’s world just…stops. What he thought was a random home invasion turns into way more. Masked men not only brutalize him, but they come armed with knowledge about Lucky, his husband, and the life he thought he knew. It seems nothing is coincidental, certainly not meeting and falling in love with Elias. Bruised, battered, heart ripped open, Lucky walks away.
An intimate rival will stop at nothing to neutralize the threat Elias poses, and the life he built out of guilt and desperation becomes collateral damage. When Lucky takes their daughter and disappears, Elias goes on a rampage. He will get his family back, but first, he’s on an elimination mission. One bullet at a time.
Features established couple, age-gap, angst.
The Rude Boys are back!
This short takes us back into the lives of Reggie Turner and Israel Storm. Partners in life and in business, these two lean on each other even more as they navigate a family crisis, betrayal in business, and a mother intent on weaponizing their relationship to fit her own ends.
NOT A STANDALONE. Israel and Reggie’s story begins in (Watch Me) Body You. It is strongly advised that you read that first, before starting Full Circle.
How long can they fight the forbidden?
It takes a tragedy to bring German back to town. A lot has changed since he ducked out in the middle of the night three years ago, leaving behind an ailing grandmother and a confused younger brother. He doesn’t expect forgiveness. He damn sure doesn’t plan to stick around long enough to acknowledge the unresolved feelings that sent him running in the first place.
That’s the lie he tells himself.
Serch is a good boy. The woman who raised him demanded nothing less and he refused to break her heart the way German did. But she’s gone now and German is at his doorstep, an apology on his lips, pain, and yearning bleeding from his fingertips. Nothing is the same, not even the forbidden connection they’ve always fought. Serch doesn’t know if he can trust his heart to the man who betrayed him with a smile on his face and love in his eyes, but it doesn’t matter.
This time, he’s taking everything that should have been his.

One man addicted to pain. Another all too willing to give it. Only one of them knows they’re supposed to be deadly enemies.
Dima Zhirkov’s usual vices of men, women, and drugs aren’t working. Newly-crowned head of Brooklyn’s Russian Mafia, he’s grasping at the flimsiest of straws to prove he’s strong enough to rule…until he finds himself drawn to a man as cold and dangerous as he is beautiful.
As the secret leader of a rival gang, Xavier “X” Storm is after what Dima holds closest, the Coney Island streets. He puts a hit out on the Russian, but Dima proves untouchable. When he forces his way into X’s life, tempting him to indulge in the dirtiest play, he finds Dima isn’t all that easy to shake, either. His cocky attitude and rough submission entice X to go where he’d vowed to never return and together they plunge into an affair fueled by their mutual love of pain and depravity.
Their connection is explosive, their games addictive, but by the time he realizes who X is and what he wants, Dima is raw and bullet-riddled. It’s run or fight and Dima doesn’t back down. Neither does X.
