Poison at the Bake Sale


Poison at the Bake Sale
by Hollis Shiloh

Abe has an awful premonition that something will go wrong during a local baking contest. Of course it's his silly imagination; he's just jumpy these days, after that murder last year. But when the day of the competition means running into his abusive ex, who later turns up dead, Abe wishes that he'd paid more attention to his anxieties, not less.

Now it's up to Abe and Gregory to figure out who could have done in the awful man. Because the authorities are looking awfully close to home, and there's only so much strain that even the best relationship can take.

My Fox Mate



He wasn't expecting to meet his mate yet. He also wasn't expecting his mate to be a fox shifter—or a man.

Marlow's childhood was a nightmare, as an orphaned wolf shifter trying to survive a hostile pack and protect his younger brother. At twenty-three, he's finally in a good place, with a great job working with the police and a partner he trusts. But is he ready for a mate?

Even if he can wrap his head and his heart around this, is there any chance for a good outcome? Marlow has no idea how to even begin talking to a pretty fox shifter. It would help if Frankie didn't hate him already...

I'm Your Guy (Shifters and Partners)



I'm Your Guy
by Hollis Shiloh

Harris and James served in the military together, back in the day. Now one is a cop and one is a private eye, but they're both barely making it.

James, half-wolf and secretive about it, has had confused feelings for Harris for a long time. Figuring out he was gay was pretty damned painful, and the only guy he has any real interest in is never going to feel the same way.

As for Harris? Definitely straight. It's odd that he notices guys sometimes, but he's always dated girls. Maybe a little desperately. It's not something he thinks about much — except for when he does.

These days, they try to stay away from each other, but that's not always possible. Throw a sassy fox shifter into the mix, and the things they've both tried to hide might come out after all.

Love Like A Poem




Love Like A Poem
by Hollis Shiloh

    John spends his days travelling from town to town, a lonely trader who's accepted his loneliness and expects nothing more from life. Then one day he meets an odd, sweet man wandering the lane, a man who's forgotten who he is but who loves books as much as John. John knows it's a bad idea to get involved, but the gentle, clever man is nearly irresistible—and Harris is attracted to John, too. Soon it doesn't matter who he used to be, or what happened in his past, as long as it can't take Harris away from him.

A Husband for Steel and Blood


A Husband for Steel and Blood 
by Hollis Shiloh

When a young girl implores Edgar Finch to marry her older brother because "Charlie is unhappy," Edgar is at first amused. But Charlie is nephew to the horribly abusive Lord Fitzhannon, whom Edgar has set himself against, and the lad is suffering under Fitzhannon's cruelty.

Marriage is not in Edgar's plans, but he'll save the lad if he can—and marriage may be his one shot. Charlie is nineteen, wild and wounded, and extraordinarily beautiful. The marriage of convenience to Edgar is just what he needs to get free of his awful uncle, and to protect his innocent little sisters.

A rocky alliance between Edgar and Charlie grows into something more companionable, from reluctantly relying on one another to trusting and warm. But Edgar's heart is set on revenge against Fitzhannon, who is responsible for the death of the only man he ever loved. Nothing must get in his way.

He would rather not drag his young husband down with him, much less develop feelings for the brat. Now, if only Charlie would have the good sense not to fall in love with him...
