Cocky Cops & Cons
Jack Walden, "Wal," has it bad for Marco, the talented, sexy auto mechanic-slash-vintage car restorer he had a brief relationship with. So bad that he regularly fakes car damage just to have an excuse to be around the man. Wal can't muster the courage to tell Marco how he feels and that he wants another chance, even though watching Marco date drives him crazy with jealousy.
Marco Costa has tried getting over Wal by getting under other men, but it's useless--the aloof detective etched himself in Marco's heart. But Wal's too closed off and married to his job, and Marco wasn't satisfied with always being second in the man's life. They're better off as friends, or so he tries to convince himself.
When a missing persons case Wal is investigating strikes too close to home, Wal realizes nothing is what it seems...and protecting the man he loves becomes a high-stakes fight when he isn't sure who he can trust.
The fall of a powerful gangster is just the beginning…

A scared, lonely past and a dangerous secret follow Dr. Aiden Sharp to the peaceful town of Lake Cliff, Illinois, when he arrives to testify in a murder trial for the district attorney.

Blood spatter and exit wounds make more sense to Aiden than a casual remark or a quick wink. Living faces and expectations have always been more of a mystery to Aiden-being autistic-than the cases he handles for the FBI, but he's never let it stop him from getting what he wants. Aiden wants Lane as soon as their eyes meet, but Aiden gets a lot more than he expected when danger arrives.
Detective Lane West is prepared to protect the gorgeous but confusing forensic psychologist from himself and just about anything fate throws at them. But what about Lane's heart? Despite his best intentions, Lane can't keep his hands off Aiden.
Passion and pancakes bring two lonely hearts together and an errand for the district attorney turns Lake Cliff upside down.
