Virgil is in trouble when he flees to the badlands of New Mexico, and he’s pretty sure the desert is going to kill him before the posse does. He’s running from his past, from a forbidden love. What he finds is half Native-American blacksmith Asa, who happens to be the stuff of dreams.
Asa isn’t about to let the skinny man he finds in the desert die. And when Virgil recovers, Asa thinks maybe he’s found a soul mate, just like his friends Tak and Loko have found in each other. Through everyday life and a series of erotic lessons, Asa thinks he can teach Virgil that love shouldn’t have boundaries. Can Virgil accept the plans that Asa, with the help of his friends, have for his future?

Cort Strang is a homicide detective called to a scene where a man has been strangled with the cord from a keyboard -- not a pretty way to die. The man who found the body, Patrick Gallagher, is pretty, though. He's also an off duty detective from Computer Crimes. The two connect almost instantly, and as Strang gets to work on finding out what led to the death of poor Mr. Dinsmore, Gallagher never seems to be very far away.
With a wealth of computer data to wade through Strang welcomes Gallagher into his case and into his bed. Can Strang balance work and pleasure, or is his mind too divided to make either be successful?
Originally published in To Serve and Protect.

Doting Uncle Leo is happy to give his niece anything she wants, and what she wants for the Fourth is lots of "real" fireworks. When he arrives for the family celebration, Leo meets his brother-in-law John's side of the family, including John's sister's ex-husband, Rick, half-naked and hot.
As the day gets warmer, Leo's and Rick's fuses get shorter, and other things get longer and harder. The night ends with a bonfire, camping in tents by the lake, and -- for Leo and Rick -- the best fireworks display ever.
