Rock Bay and Friends

It’s not always easy to start over where everyone knows you… especially when the hottest guy you’ve ever seen already hates your guts.

Tallis Carrington ruled Rock Bay with his gang of jocks and an iron fist—until a scandal destroyed his family’s name. Ten years later Tallis is dead broke, newly homeless, and on the walk of shame to end all walks of shame.

 He needs money and needs it fast, and Rock Bay is the only home he knows. But the people of Rock Bay haven’t forgotten him—or the antics of a spoiled brat who’d had everything handed to him.

The only person in town willing to overlook his past is Lex, the new coffee shop owner, who offers Tally a job even though he appears to despise Tally based on his reputation alone. When Tally discovers his gorgeous boss is the kid he tortured back in high school, Lex’s hot and cold routine finally makes sense. Now Tally has to pull out all the stops to prove he was never really the jerk he seemed to be.

After all, if he can win Lex’s heart, the rest of the town should be a piece of coffee cake.

If you’re drowning in expectations, fears, and the weight of trying to make everyone around you happy… sometimes the only way to find your way to love is to simply let go.

Drew McAuliffe has lived in the small town of Rock Bay most of his adult life. He’d like to be happy, but not at the cost of having his private life under his nosy townspeople’s judgy microscopes. He’s spent thirty plus years, hiding a big part of who he is… the part that very much likes men.

Especially one man. One beautiful, elusive man who’s trying to escape from his own romantic past in a small town where nobody knows him.

Drew and Mason were meant to meet. They’re meant to be together. The long looks and awkward half hellos were never going to be enough for them. But with Drew’s fears and Mason’s past, it’s going to take a lot of trust and a few second chances to turn their chemistry into anything more than a dream.

If you’re running away from a horrible past, or the loss of a future you’d once put all your hopes in… maybe all it takes to find a new home is a little bit of falling in love.

Justin Grant has nineteen years of nothing but trouble behind him. After escaping his controlling and abusive father, he finds himself in Rock Bay, Washington, with his cousin Travis. Justin is bruised and has a hard time trusting, but with the help of his family and the small town, he might be able to heal.

And then he meets Logan — his cousin’s gorgeous friend who is very, very unavailable to Justin.


Justin is beyond attracted to Logan, but he’s also wary. Logan is hot and straight and an awful lot like the boys who used to beat him up after class. It takes months of friendship and one awkwardly amazing kiss for him to realize Logan isn’t anything like he’d imagined.

In fact, Logan’s love, faith, and stubbornness are just what Justin needs to believe he’s worth it. To believe they are worth it.

Welcome to Rock Bay, Washington. The last place anyone means to go… but the one place they can call home.

In Coming Home, Tally has to navigate life and love in the town where his name is practically a curseword after the mess he and his family made over a decade ago.

In Letting Go Drew has to come to terms with who he is and who he’s falling in love with in a town where he’s never fit in…until now.

In Finding Shelter Justin has to find a new home and new love in Rock Bay after he escaped a bad situation in the town he grew up in.

A Rock Bay Short Story…

Emmett has always loved it in Lola’s garden — from the first time his mother had brought him over when he was barely able to toddle between the thick clusters of flowers. It smells alive and earthy and wet and everything glitters like some sort of blurry, magical fairy realm.

But the garden holds memories… of a gentle, grandmotherly woman who Emmett would miss every day for the rest of his life. And of Jay. The first boy he’d kissed. The first boy he’d loved.

The garden holds hope too. When Jay comes back to Rock Bay for the first time in years, he finds Emmett in Lola’s garden, almost like he’d never left. As the days go by, Jay and Emmett start to wonder if their love is meant to be buried in hazy days long gone past… or if it’s finally time for it to take root and grow.

Sometimes it takes miles of open road and your real life in the rearview mirror to figure out what was right in front of you all along…

Angus had been with the same guy for ten years. When his boyfriend breaks up with him the night of his thirtieth birthday party and announces his engagement to a twenty-two-year-old less than ten hours later…

Angus is …. a mess. To put it lightly.

He spends days in bed, drinks himself into a stupor every night, and ends up losing his job and his apartment. His best and oldest friend, Reece, decides it’s time for an intervention. And a change of scenery.

Reece and Angus take off on a trip across the US. They don’t have much of a plan. They just start driving. it takes Angus a couple of days to do much more than grunt when Reece talks to him, but slowly he opens up.

They drive, talk, heal, shout, dance, meet new friends… and somewhere between Portland, Oregon, and Portland, Maine, they fall in love.

Which was the last thing in the world Angus expected.
