Chad Parker, privileged son of a wealthy hotelier, has made the decision to transfer to Tekla Senior High for his graduating year. Events during the summer have made it far too dangerous for him to remain at his old school. But on the very first day, he meets Derek Steeple, and finds himself in exactly the same situation, except this time, the consequences of his actions will forever change the lives of those he loves.
What readers are saying:
"Loved it! Two Nights A Week is romantic, heart-breaking, and beautiful at the end."
"Just read Two Nights A Week and my lord I've not cried so much in so long. Like full on ugly sobs!"
Derek Lawrence is a player. There is no other way to phrase it. He's been unstoppable since coming out in high school. Guy after guy—conquest after conquest. He isn't looking for a commitment from anyone. His life is perfect the way it is.
Except for one rather significant exception. Derek has been in love with his best friend and business partner, Justin Leary, since the first day he set eyes on him over twenty years ago. Despite the daily agony of being in Justin's company, Derek has never shared his feelings with Justin, fearing it would ruin their friendship.
When an implication surfaces that Justin's feelings for Derek might also run deeper than friendship, Derek considers approaching Justin about it. But before he can, one targeted act of violence while camping with friends, followed by the aftermath of violation, challenges not only their friendship—but the strength of their love for one another.
Will they ever be able to find their way past what transpired in that tent?

Annie Luka has always been home-schooled, but she's convinced her mother to let her attend public school for her graduating year. When it is learned that Annie Luka is actually Attila Luka; a beautiful cross-gender guy struggling with his identity, it tears a small group of friends apart. Only when they all reunite ten years later is the full extent of Attila's deception revealed, bringing some of the group closer together, and pushing others further apart.
What transpires over the next few years after the reunion leaves Attila wondering if he'll ever find true love.
What readers are saying:
"As the story progressed I started to realize that the author chose to write about a serious topic in a very conflicted way. Many transgendered people struggle with body dysphoria and the answer to the eternal question of "who am I?"... Attila shows the angst that goes along with knowing that you don't fit into a predetermined role in life, that the people that you are attracted to can't love you the way you really are, and he struggles for years trying to find a way to live happily. Overall this story shows the struggle that members of our GLBTQ community go thru on a daily basis. It shows that sometimes life should just be fluidity in motion."
"I Loved loved loved this book. Attila really had a tough time in life but ended up where he should be. The message in that is very touching. I Loved reading about the group of friends and what they all went through. I really did not expect the end but I was so happy the way it ended. The people that deserved a happy ending got it. I would definitely recommend this book. I could not put it down. You won't be sorry."
"I dried my eyeballs crying, reading this book. I love Curtis with all his mental issues. Attila is a sensitive soul, but his slutty attitude is a bit overrated. One of the best books I've read. Well done Leigh Jarrett."
"Just finished the first three books in the Tekla High Series. OMG, emotionally drained right now! Leigh Jarrett, don't ever stop writing!"
Marc Tucker and Adam O'Neill typically wouldn't have crossed paths due to their vastly different career choices. Marc has been playing professional football for the past two years, straight out of college, while Adam has been honing his craft since he was nine years old when his mother bought him his first pair of ballet shoes.
Mandatory training for the offensive players on Marc's team finds him in a ballet studio for the very first time in his life. The coach has told them it will improve their flexibility and agility, but Marc isn't the least bit impressed with the idea until he catches sight of their new ballet master. Adam's beautiful lines and lean muscular presence have Marc's body warming up in all the right places.
But has Marc made a seriously misplaced assumption about Adam's potential interest in him? And will Adam's strict religious upbringing come between them before they've even completed a first down?
The unrelenting seduction of Oleander's cool, flawless skin—and deep, captivating eyes. The concern in his voice—the touch of his hand. The exhilaration and pride elicited by the sight of Oleander waiting for him after the visit with his family had left him feeling disappointed and unfulfilled.
Amidst the chaos of his sexual reckoning, Timothy is compelled to uphold an intimate pact struck between himself and Oleander, and chooses to follow him north to Drakkar Castle—the threat of war upon them. Grimmr Coven is advancing deep into Drakkar Coven territory, and only Oleander may know the reason why. He had lived amongst the Coven Grimmr for many decades with his human lover, Torkel, and fears that a far greater threat is coming, forcing Grimmr Coven south into Drakkar Coven territory.
Left behind while Oleander goes in search of answers, Timothy's inner turmoil becomes unbearable. His only company enroute to Drakkar Castle, Alexis, a vivacious, blue-eyed seductress with a secret, intent on stealing him away for reasons that would launch the already fractured family of Drakkar at each other's throats.
Come nightfall, the inhabitants of the ancient castle perched high on the mountain above their picturesque valley would awaken, and then no one left outside the village walls would be safe.
The torches set into the thick stone walls of the castle would be lit, the evening bells would toll—then Lord Callum would release his riders, led by his brother Oleander, an alabaster, screeching creature of nightmares; thundering through the night as he collected his victims.
After one of Oleander's raids unexpectedly breaches the walls of the village, Laramie finds himself face to face with Lord Callum—a dark, majestic beast like none he has ever seen before.
His first glimpse of Lord Callum sets his heart racing, partially out of fear, but mostly out of fascination—and something else, and Callum takes note of that, pleased to have found his next plaything.
What readers are saying:
"This is a very different take on the usual romantic, vampire story. It portrays them in the way that we expect 'real' vampires to behave, living as blood thirsty, lethal killers who view humans as prey. Despite being monsters, these guys can be capable of normal human emotions, they form attachments and fall in love. What makes this different, is the way that vampires of such standing were easily manipulated by their prey and could even be submissive to them once that bond had been formed. This isn't all lovey, dovey. It's gruesome with death for entertainment purposes, copious amounts of blood being consumed, bodies strewn around and a community of people who have been captured and await their fate. The sex scenes aren't too shabby either. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read the next instalment."
"I personally just finished this book last night,and frankly I can't get enough of it. What a magnificent and disgusting person Callum was,but still such a dark sexy character... I loved this book, it was well written and I had great difficulty putting it down. I truly cannot wait for the sequel to come out. I'm curious on how the author will continue Timothy and Oleander's evolving relationship, and where the story will take us next, will it stay in the castle or continue in Drumceda. Can't wait to find out!!!!"
"This is an unusual vampire story that doesn't flinch from portraying vampires as bloodthirsty monsters yet still managed to make me feel sympathetic towards the main character. I am going to have to look for more Drakker Coven books to find out what happens next and if the nasty vampire gets his come-uppence."
"It should have come with a bigger warning label than "these vampires do not sparkle". Seriously, it was so disturbing. I'm giving the author props for going there and putting a lot of gore and darkness in the story, but I had to force myself to finish it. I was like a deer caught in the headlights, I wanted to run, but I couldn't. lol."
Zarum's interest in him was more than E'lan had been expecting, given his preference—but then maybe Zarum had sensed something.
E'lan had been told all his life that he was the most beautiful and alluring "girl" and now "woman" anyone had ever set eyes on, and each time the clans gathered to seek mates for their younger clan members, E'lan enjoyed the admiration bestowed upon him, but the necessity to keep his true gender and sexuality a secret prevented him from finding a mate for himself.
As the healer of the Clan N'kip, E'lan was also their spiritual leader. A position passed down to him by his mother—strictly a woman's position within the clan. Only the elders knew of the deception his mother had strategically undertaken throughout E'lan's life.
This mating season, four spirits willing, he would be included in the celebrations. The elders would choose a suitable mate for him, and he'd be permitted to take that man back to his sleeping platform and fulfill his long-awaited desires.
As a man—not a woman.
