Amiri Campbell left New Zealand with his partner Graeme over a decade ago, and with good reason. He still carries the emotional scars of family abandonment, for all that Graeme tries to get him to reconcile. When Amiri’s beloved Auntie Moana dies, Amiri and Graeme have no choice but to head back to New Zealand to deal with her estate. They only mean for it to be a brief visit, but family matters involving his niece and nephew might turn this brief stay into something longer – and more permanent.
Even though Amiri has Graeme’s total support, does he have the strength to face his family? Even more, can he let go of the past enough to give his niece and nephew the home they both deserve?

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. When Tanner goes on vacation to get away from school and work, he learns this the hard way.
Though he hates water, Tanner agrees to join his older brother and friends away from home for two weeks at the beach. There he meets Chase, a gorgeous local who offers to show him the sights and introduce him to what he's been missing. Against his better judgment, Tanner agrees. He's given the gift of pearls, and his life is quickly turned upside-down as Tucker's friend (and Tanner's long-time crush) Jimmy starts acting strangely.
Tanner learns that there are things in the water that go beyond human understanding, and he's left with two major questions: What is a siren? And why is it hunting Tanner?
Pearls in the Darkness contains dark themes that some readers might find disturbing.
