Bless My Other Stepbrother

This is a sequel to my Bless My Stepbrother.

Jessi Delgato has been called back from her exile at her new Stepfather’s to help her famous father mount his presidential campaign. Senator Delgato has always kept his first family completely separate from Jessi. But Franco—the only son—will also be a critical part of Senator Delgato’s run for the White House. When Jessi and Franco meet for the first time, it feels as if they had both been missing a part of themselves. Now they’ve discovered a sense of completeness. 

Working under the supervision of one of Hollywood’s best known Directors means more and more time together as their attraction towards each other continues to grow. Jessi had lost her virginity to her new Stepfather’s son. Will a history of forbidden love repeat itself? 

(Bless My Other Stepbrother is the sequel to Bless My Stepbrother. It also introduces Franco, who is one of the main characters in How Bad Can A Cowboy Be? How Bad Can A Cowboy Be? takes place after Bless My Other Stepbrother.) 


“I just wanted to check on you. You weren’t in the best of moods when you left me and I didn’t want to think I had offended you in some way.” As he spoke, Franco came into the room and then shut the door quietly behind him. 

“I’m sorry,” she said, not looking at him. “I’ve just been under a lot of stress lately and the Senator keeps pressuring me about how I have to be the daughter that will get him elected.” She looked up at him through her thick eyelashes. “I hated living at my stepfather’s.” She paused and added, “I hated it most of the time. But I never felt the strain I do here. Maybe it was because I was sixteen when he started asking me to go with him to practice how to behave with him in public. Then it just felt like a game—I was pretending to be the fairy tale princess. But now I know it was never about pretending—it was always about trying—and failing-- to be the perfect child.” 

“Yeah,” sighed Franco as he sat beside her on the bed. He put his arm around her narrow shoulders. “Tell me about it. Never mattered what I did—what I won—how many A’s I achieved. I’ve spent my whole life listening to him explain to me how much I had disappointed him.” 

“He has really high expectations,” she said. She leaned on him, her head on his shoulder and she began to cry. 

“I won’t let him hurt you,” he said. He now had both arms around her and pulled her tightly against him. He felt his heart speed up. He had been hungering for her touch from the moment he had almost knocked her over in the hallway. When he had grabbed her to keep her from falling over he hadn’t wanted to let go. He put his forehead against hers. Then he kissed her.

I closed the door and listened a moment to the smooth jazz coming from the clock radio I had left on. When I put my head on my pillow I was gone before Fattburger had finished. In my dreams I was whole again. I could move without pain, and when I looked up, Kloe was there. It was a lucid dream again, and I was aware it was a dream because Honey should be here--not someone I had just met. 

“You’re a hero,” dream Kloe told me. “You’re just the one I want to be the father of my children.” She smiled, flashing that little space between her teeth at me. 

“I always wanted to be a father,” I told her honestly. There had been that slight fear when Honey thought she might be pregnant, but we weren’t ready for that. It was a false alarm, anyway. I tried to think of Honey, but she wouldn’t come. Dream Kloe reached out and traced my lips with her fingertip. She then leaned forward and kissed me lightly. 

“See--now we have a goal,” she growled. “Let’s work on it together.” Dream Kloe slowly began to unbutton her white blouse and again I knew this was a dream because she wasn’t wearing the bra I had been staring at earlier, obvious beneath her top.

McKay's Werewolf Ways (Gay Werewolf Romance) -- and a Big Box Set of Highland Shifters on the Way

First, I'd like to express my appreciation for the well wishes from so many of you. In June I was walking to the grocery store when a young driver pulled out a parking lot without looking and hit me. I'm told my body shattered his windshield when I was flipped over his hood. I spent a week in our regional trauma hospital with a fractured spine and a torn meniscus (kneecap). I was in extreme denial of how severely I was injured. I was relieved that for the second month anniversary of my accident, my new orthopedic surgeon allowed me to toss my hated back brace. He told me I should have no long term effects from the spinal fracture and that there's now no evidence I had a torn meniscus. I will say I'm aware that it was torn with every step. I need to go in for a new set of spine
x-rays in mid-September for (hopefully) my final exam on my third month anniversary and then I should get an "all clear."

I've tried to keep writing but the experience has been a very painful one and I lost a lot of time I had sorted out. I've regretted not being able to give my website the attention it needs. I'm hoping now that I'm definitely feeling better things can start getting back to normal.

Here's one of my latest works--McKay's Werewolf Ways (Gay Werewolf Romance). This is intended as a "prequel" to introduce my character McKay to the Supernatural Community. His story continues in my shared contribution to an upcoming Scottish Shifter Romance.

McKay’s world and heart shrank when his grandfather died. While settling his estate a chance meeting with Mahihkan, a hot and sexy Metis artist, is about to teach the red-headed professional model that the world is much larger—and more magical-- than he ever imagined. It’s also more dangerous as he discovers his new companion is really a Loup-Garou--what the Metis call a werewolf. In the U.S. to install a new art piece, Mahihkan is considered a “lone wolf” without a pack to depend on for protection. The arrangements he made with the local packs have just fallen apart when a werewolf has been left for dead in the Turtle Island Maze Mahihkan created. Now he fears not only for his own life but McKay’s as well. What happens when a human discovers the Supernatural is real? The policy is elimination of humans who know The Secret. 

(This gay werewolf romance introduces McKay in his first encounter with paranormal romance. His story will continue with Roots and Fangs: Scottish Shifter Romance, as he retraces the route his grandfather took from Scotland to arrive in America. This story is intended for an adult audience. It expresses a graphic same-sex loving relationship. All characters are over eighteen years old) 


Mahihkan sat silent for a moment and poured himself a second shot. In for a penny, in for a pound. You go from not telling humans anything to then just handing them the store when they finally find out The Secret. God, no wonder The Enforcers felt it was easiest to just kill everybody. “The average Garou needs the full moon to change shape. But there are members of the community who are, well, I guess you could say they’re more gifted than the others. These are the natural leaders. We call them Alphas. Technically an Alpha is someone who can change at any time—they don’t need the moon. I’m what’s called a potential Alpha. That means I have all the strength and abilities of an Alpha, but I’m not in a formal leadership position. I don’t need the moon to change. Obviously my guest can do it on his own as well.” 

Mahihkan looked up from his glass. As he stared into McKay’s eyes, his own eyes shifted into the strange golden color the other man—the other Garou-- had shown. “I thought I saw a flash of yellow in your eyes the first time I met you, but I had managed to convince myself I was just seeing things.”

“Unless we work hard to control it, our eyes change color if we’re aroused, excited, or scared. We slip up more than we should, but our greatest ally is an enduring belief by humans we don’t exist in the first place. Even when we do show our true eye color, most people will manage to instantly convince themselves they didn’t see what they thought they saw.” 

“What do we do now?” McKay was feeling the edge of the alcohol. He almost laughed when he thought about upgrading his Facebook status: Met this hot Garou who was helping a friend recover from attempted murder. Note to self: buy a bottle of Tito’s Vodka. It’s just the thing to have when your world goes bat-shit crazy. Who would even believe him? His only regular involvement with anything unusual was the modeling industry where all magic was done with Photoshop.


As a promotion for our upcoming Highland Shifters Big Box Set, I'm setting McKay's Werewolf Ways as a "freebie." You can download it for free on Apple/Itunes here:  I've asked Amazon to price match it so it should be free at any time, hopefully before you click on it: If Amazon is being slow about making it free, you can also pick it up at Kobo here: or at Smashwords here:  And B&N just came through with the price set at zero:

Here's a cover reveal of the further adventures of McKay: 

Roots & Fangs (Scottish Shifter Romance)

McKay enters into the dangerous world of the Supernatural once more as he searches for the steps his grandfather took from Scotland to the States. Little did he know Logan McKay had really escaped to the New World to avoid the wrath of the Daoine Sith, the Fair Folk of the Highlands. As generations repeat themselves, McKay takes Niall as his Sith lover, which triggers the deadly jealousy of the Pooka shape-shifter the Sith abandons. Legend says a Pooka will kill at a whim. It’s up to McKay not only to tame the wild magic of the Pooka, but to return what his grandfather took from the Sith forty years ago. Unfortunately he needs the power of the Pooka to do so. Can Love conquer all when only one of you is human? (A supernatural same-sex triangle calls to life Celtic legends and the Drawing Down the Moon Rite that will change the lives of those involved forever. This steamy paranormal romance is intended for adults only.)

When McKay takes a Sith lover it triggers the deadly jealousy of the Pooka shape-shifter the Sith abandons. Can love conquer all when only one of you is human?

New Paranormal Mega-Bundle: Shifters, Beasts, and Monsters!

Native American Teachings have always emphasized how everything is connected. For many of our Southwestern Native Nations, this is symbolized by the Web of Life—the symbol of Spider Woman. Spider Woman is the “Creatrix” of the World. Isn’t that a lovely word? It means the Female Creator. Native peoples know from long observation it doesn’t matter where you touch on a spider’s web—it sends a ripple throughout the entire web. Just so, whatever we do impacts everything and everyone around us. It also shows us that everything has a place on the Web of Life, and what may be seen as “evil” (or “good”) from one perspective, may be understood in a different way when you can see the behavior in a larger context.

Just so, I’m excited to announce a new Mega-Bundle that’s just gone live: Shifters, Beasts, and Monsters (The Alpha Paranormal Collection). My own contribution (Ravaged by the Rainbow) is based on traditional Navajo culture and the idea of how one’s belief system may cause misunderstandings when encountering a new life form from very far away. 

(This just in--the Collection has just received a "Best Seller" Award from one of the major bookselling vendors)

Dark Passions--And the Origin of Strawberries

Native Americans have always known the importance of Personal Interactions and Social Media--
There are some great Native American legends that deal with love and romance. Many people don't know how many foods we enjoy in the 21st century were contributed by Native American cultures. Corn is a given, but are you aware strawberries are also a Native gift? 

There's a legend that says a young Cherokee man was attracted to a beautiful young woman of his Tribal Nation.  But she behaved very politely and ignored him. He followed her but she would not even slow down--let alone pay attention to him. He prayed to the Creator to help him.  The Creator took pity on him and created strawberries.  The young woman slowed down to pick the berries, which allowed her suitor to catch up with her and begin to court her appropriately.

My story, "How Bad Can A Cowboy Be" features two curvy cousins and their relationships with various cowboys. One is Bree Cunningham who also appears in her own book, Romancing the Wolf. I went back to explore her earlier life while she was still in college and yet to meet the werewolf of her dreams. At that point she was running the computer lab on her grandmother's reservation. You'll be able to read all about Bree and her cousin Kathy in this spicy mega-collection about all sorts of other "bad boys"-- Dark Passions
You can find Dark Passions on Amazon here:, on B&N here:
