Opposites Series, book 1
In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.
In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.
Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

Opposites Series, Book 2
Appearances can be deceiving.
Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis issues with his own past could prove to be more than their fragile relationship can handle. Is their love for each other strong enough to weather the oncoming storm?
Aiya and Sawyer have fought hard to be together in a world where Opposite relationships are generally forbidden. Yet, they are still forced to keep their relationship a secret while they are outside the walls of House Gaeland.
Everyone assumes that the only threat lies outside their walls, the group of rebels led by Cillian. But something is happening within House Gaeland, something that hasn’t happened since GWI. And with all the attention focused on that, their guard is down. An evil that was under their nose all along strikes, and someone will make the ultimate sacrifice to save another.
Just as hot and heavy as book 1, Appearances follows the story of the couples and extended families now all twined together in House Devi, House Orion, and House Gaeland. As the young heirs and their parents get to know each other better and fall deeper in love, the conflicts generated by their realities, past and present, fester till they reach the point of no return and explosions happen.
Aiyan and Kaden have to deal with what has happened to them and the aftermath, Aiyan’s bottled up feelings and his husband’s nightmares. Sawyer and Aiya have to figure out their Opposites relationship and prepare for a new baby, while still figuring out the way Aiya’s marriage and deep friendship with Maeve works into the relationship. Tanis and Raven have to fight their own demons as Tanis’ less than pristine pasts is thrown at his fiance.
The journeys the characters take will open up new worlds. The homes of House Devi and House Orion in India and Greece are the new settings for the complicated plot where the obvious threat is not always the biggest, hate and bitterness can hurt deeply, but so can weapons, and the future looks more uncertain as ever as all threads unravel and are wound up together again in a complicated knot.
Peppered with a few erotic scenes in every chapter, Appearances explores all manners of love and conflict in a dystopian future where the human race does not seem to have learned all that much from its past transgressions, yet they are stumbling on their way to evolving and accepting nature as it is. Definitely an interesting read for all those who like science fiction, adventure, and highly erotic scenarios.
Opposites Series, Book 2.5
It’s time to learn the truth about what happened that day in The Cellar.
Taryn and Thanos are the formidable Ambassadors of House Orion. Taryn was born into power, bred from birth to lead the people of Greece along with his sister Theresa, Thanos was never a part of his mother’s plan. The son of a fisherman was not a suitable match for the son of Greece as far as their mother was concerned, but Taryn always takes what he wants.
The Cellar is the story of how these two men met and fell in love, and what lengths Taryn went to, to ensure he kept his man. This novella also contains a more detailed accounting of what happened the night Raven and Tanis went for a walk on the beach, and the adult version of Mistletoe and Mayhem that was initially released as a free short through Goodreads.
