The first time Henry Hughes and Cameron Jameson meet, it’s an unmitigated disaster. Cameron reminds Henry of all he left behind when he stopped making adult films, and he cruelly rejects Cameron. When Cameron discovers Henry’s porno-thespian past, he assumes he’s dodged a bullet.
But circumstances continue to throw the two together. Though the physical attraction between them grows, they cling to first impressions, even as a slow dance reveals just how good they could be.
Henry finally realizes how wrong he was, but Cameron can’t cope with “sleeping with the enemy.” It will take a confrontation for Cameron to realize just how wrong he’s been, but unfortunately, he may have lost his chance.


Can two people who annoy the crap out of each other, yet find one another irresistible defeat the odds and fall in love?  That is the question in this quirky romantic comedy novel.  If Hollywood made god romantic comedies for gay guys this would be a blockbuster!
Henry is a super stud former porn star who only wants to find Mr. Right, rather  than Mr. Right Now; Cameron is a somewhat twink link young man who has a far more serious personality and a determination to find a partner with substance and Henry Hughes makes every mistake in the book at every turn to show that he is not that man.
To add to the constant train wreck that is their romance is added Cameron’s roommates Van and Thad, two long in the tooth twinks who are more akin to Lucy and Ethel in their hijinks to get Henry and Cameron together.  Cameron’s nutcase mother and angsty nephew, Henry’s “Uncle” who happens to be a flamboyant drag queen, a Simon, Cameron’s best friend and long-time crush; round out this cast of cracked pots and each and every one will bring an emotion to you weather it is love, hate annoyance or just hilarity.
There is comedy, there is some hot sex, but above all there is romance and a good time to be had by the reader who takes the chance on this terrific novel.  If they make a movie of it I’ll be first in line to get my ticket, soda & popcorn!

Vanity Fair hired famous novelist Nick Thessalides to stay in a haunted country inn and write about it for their October issue. A weekend of secluded sun, fun, and sex sounds like paradise, so Nick is taking his lovers Andy and Oliver along. Nick’s best friend Serena, a celebrity photographer, and her bashful Irish setter Stubing, are accompanying the boys to document their escapades. What could go wrong?
It’s all fun and games until a serial killer’s knife appears embedded in the floor of the hotel’s foyer. Cut off from the outside world, they decide there’s no choice but to solve the mystery, and the five investigators uncover clues that lead them to construct a trap. But will they capture a serial killer’s ghost, a scam artist, or something else entirely?

I love a good horror story, a mystery or a haunted house book and this is a mix of those things with a good dose of humor and a little sexiness thrown is for fun.   
The characters are entertaining and charming in every way.  This is a short book, a novella really, so you can read it in a few hours so kick back and have a good time.

Brent is a tarot reader, a young man whose adopted family doesn’t like tarot readers or gays or Swedes or anything else that Brent can bring to the discussion.  One of his tarot readings is for a young Sioux man, and that’s where Brent’s old life stops. Brent’s finds a whole new life that is full of wonder and adventure, as he learns to read his own heart first.
Viking meets Sioux — fireworks.

BRENT: THE HEART READER is the tender and sexy story of self-awareness and acceptance as this wounded healer lets himself fall in love with a wonderful man.

I came to this book not really knowing what to expect as I had only read two other novels by Wynn Wagner from his Vamp Camp series, which I loved by the way.  This book is much different from either of those.  There is deep romance to be found here as well as some pretty amazing sex and a lot of pure comedy which I absolutely loved.
The book is also about family and how after he loses his mother his adopted family throws him out completely while the family of his new love, Takota, accept him and make him a part of their family with all the love support and sometimes nerve racking insanity that comes along with the privlidge.
Brent is an amazing young man who is terrific to get to know and funny in is many neurotic handlings and mishandlings of the events he has to deal with in escalating speed as the books moves forward.  I learned a great deal about the art of Tarot which was actually very interesting and a welcome addition to the book, it’s always nice to have a learning experience with my entertainment.
The book is set up for a sequel and I, for one pray and will endlessly annoy Wynn, until one shows up, be warned, mister!
