All you need is love. And a strong alibi. A plane crash brought me to the cabin in the woods with the stranger, but love keeps me here. Nothing can take me from his arms, not even a man from my past. But after a body is found nearby, the police have questions for me. For us. All I’ve ever wanted is to stay with the stranger, the man I crave and need but my secrets are starting to unravel. 

 Escape is what the stranger demands and I’ll do anything for him, including leaving the cabin and creating a new identity. I’ll do whatever he tells me to do- with my body, my heart, my soul. The last time I loved, I lost. I won’t let that happen again. 

HIDE is the follow up to the bestselling erotic thriller, CRASH, with the series conclusion, EXPOSE (the stranger’s story), releasing in late 2016. For mature readers only. The greatest love stories start with blood…

A Web photo of a dominatrix sends a man mired in midlife crisis on a last-ditch attempt to feel truly alive one more time, even if it kills him.

"There are multiple ways to view success in life, and Kit's journey through sexuality is not about preservation of the body, but of the soul... A remarkable investigation of a man attempting to save himself from stagnation." - IndieReader

"... a stylish piece of literary fiction... intellectually engaging throughout. A finely drawn portrait of desire in its fall and winter seasons."- BlueInk Review

"...All in all, this is a delectable novel about a man exploring his unknown sexual fantasies at the price of possibly losing his true self along the way."- Red City Review

Growing numb to life, to his on-and-off girlfriend of many years, his career, even Scotch, a man turns fifty. He is a translator who can no longer dream of translating beautiful works of fiction. He is an amateur musician who can no longer dream of expressing his life on a higher plane, without words. As he glares inside himself he sees little but his declining sexuality, his crumbling hold on life, a growing list of failed relationships, and a darkening well of loneliness.

Stumbling upon an image on the Internet one night, he suddenly hears cell doors sliding open. He stares at a young woman, in profile, beautiful, unblinking, regal. Instinctively he knows that by lingering on that image he will shatter a relationship that has kept him on the sane side of loneliness as surely as if he stepped in front of a speeding eighteen-wheeler. But desperate to feel alive again before time runs out, he knows he must see the stranger behind the pixels on his laptop screen.

Although it is her image that first transfixes him, his eye afterwards chances on a handful of words on the Internet page. She is a dominatrix. The word triggers something inside him, blows the dust off fantasies trickling back to adolescence, and slowly begins to re-choreograph his decades of sexual memories. Was he ever really the dominant male he thought he was? Did he have a sexual alter-ego? Was this the last card he had to play in life? The face on the screen held the answer. He would find out even if it killed him.
The greatest love stories begin with blood…
Read all three novels in the compelling CRASH series (Crash, Hide, and Expose), including a bonus short story from The Stranger’s point of view!

CRASH…
There is blood.  There is pain.  And there is him.  These are the first things I register when I wake up, the lone survivor in an Alaskan plane crash.  He carries me to safety over rough terrain and brings me to his cabin in the woods.  He has no name.  Or none he will tell me. 

As snow creeps across the harsh and isolated landscape, he is my only company.  My protector, my caretaker.  A fascinating enigma, with mysterious eyes, gentle hands, and a rough voice that demands more from me than I ever expected to give.  I make up different stories, different names for him depending on his mood, because I know nothing about him except that he is my only connection to the real world I want to return to.  So I work to please him, plotting my escape, yet all the while I start to crave him and every touch of his dominating body.   

He has saved me from the cold.  From death.  But in taking me and my body, will he destroy me?

HIDE…
A plane crash brought me to the cabin in the woods with the stranger, but love and sex keeps me here, as his willing captive. Nothing can take me from his arms, not even a man from my past. But the police have questions for me. For us.

All I’ve ever wanted is to stay with the stranger, the man I crave and need, but my secrets are starting to unravel. Escape is what the stranger demands and I’ll do anything for him, including leaving the cabin and creating a new identity. I’ll do whatever he tells me to do- with my body, my heart, my soul.

The last time I loved, I lost. I won’t let that happen again. 

Expose…
The thrilling conclusion to the CRASH trilogy is told from The Stranger’s point of view.

The first time I saw Laney I thought she was dead in the wreckage of that plane crash. She was still and pale, her hair tumbled around her face as she slumped slightly to the side. Like a perfect porcelain doll on a little chair, and I thought it was a waste of such a beautiful face. But then her eyes popped open and they were filled with pain and fear.

I knew that look. It was the look of every animal that has been hunted and hasn’t died yet. She was the fox with her leg in the trap, and I freed her from the seat crushing her foot, picked her up and took her home.

I am the hunter. She is the prey.

No one can trap her but me, her captor, but danger is coming. She thinks she is love with me, and maybe she is. I hope she is. Because I love her too, even if I have a strange way of showing it…

All his secrets are exposed as he and Laney’s erotic relationship reaches its climax in the Alaskan tundra.

"A masterwork of horror."— Time

Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be.

Charles Talent Manx has a gift of his own. He likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the vanity plate NOS4A2. In the Wraith, he and his innocent guests can slip out of the everyday world and onto hidden roads that lead to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. The journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor.

Then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble...and finds her way to Charlie. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. On the road again, he won't slow down until he's taken his revenge. He's after something very special—something Vic can never replace.

As a life-and-death battle of wills builds, Vic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all—or die trying.
