Men Like Us




Men Like Us
by Hollis Shiloh

Ollie Boyd enjoys Jack Finley's company, likes to make him laugh, and wants to work with him...and maybe something more than that. It sure is confusing to have these feelings for another guy, and in the homophobic 1950s, it's not really safe.

Jack Finley finds time for Ollie, sure, but he's just humoring a friend. He's a tough private eye. He's certainly not indulging secretly in a crush, no matter how attractive or charming Ollie might be. Jack's smart and careful, and he's been around the block. It's hard enough to be who he is without taking on extra trouble.

But now Jack needs some help, after a botched Good Samaritan act leaves him broken in body and spirit. Ollie wants to be the one who's there for him. He also wants to figure out these feelings—even if they mean he's in pretty deep trouble.

A whole lot of bumps in the road—including blackmail and murder—might take these two down more dangerous streets than they'd guess...together.

You're Worth It



You're Worth It
by Hollis Shiloh
shifters & partners #24


Will is gay, a sweet but forgetful wolf shifter who doesn't seem to have any standards for who he "dates." That bothers his partner far more than it should.

Elliot (who is definitely, definitely not gay) was deeply traumatized by growing up in a strict belief system. In his mind, there's nothing to be gained from examining too closely who he might be. Nothing but pain, heartbreak, maybe even damnation.

An overly-friendly fox shifter, a fat orange housecat, and a lot of soul-searching may end up changing his mind.

Because sometimes secrets won't stay buried. And at some point, he has to tell the truth, to himself—and to Will.

How to Hire A Vampire Consultant
by Hollis Shiloh

Steve isn't used to being the responsible party. He's not even a real agent at the Paranormal Research Agency—he's here on parole. But right now, a lot of the PRA's people are missing, and Steve and the librarian might be the only ones who can save them. While she researches like her life depends on it, Steve's running around mopping up monstrous messes. He needs all the help he can get—even from a sassy vampire. Barnaby the vampire is kind of hot (for a twink), and not nearly as badass as he likes to think. Even if he did save Steve's life. Between the three of them, they might just have what it takes to save the day.

Wolf at the Door


Wolf at the Door
by Hollis Shiloh

Devin has a lot to prove.  

Rickey is just here for the free food.  

Devin's here to get a wolf shifter as a partner.  The short, loud redhead intends to be the best cop in his class and doesn't care if he gets on everyone's nerves in the process.  He loves fancy sports cars and has a competitive nature.

Rickey likes the van life and living by his own terms.  But times have been tight for the wolf shifter lately, and signing up for this course seems like an easy way to keep the wolf from the door.  All the free food he can eat, if he sits through some classes.  What could go wrong?

The two guys have chemistry, despite being so different.  They could be friends at least, maybe partners.  But there's an underlying sexual chemistry that's getting harder and harder to ignore...

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.
