In his sizzling debut novel, Daytime Drama, Dave Benbow took readers inside the sexy, catty world of soaps. Now he goes behind the seams--and under the covers--of LA's fashion district, where a man's body is his business, and one man's exquisite face and form are about to take him straight to the top, into the arms of an unlikely lover. . .and into the crosshairs of a deranged killer. . .
Male Model
Designing window displays for the glamorous Cameron Fuller USA store on Rodeo Drive is Blake Jackson's passion. After all, handsome, elegant designer Cameron Fuller is an icon of chic style. With his Vogue-thin wife, Suzette, he's one-half of "America's Couple." But rumors have swirled around him for years--whispers that his wife is a vicious, drunken shrew who holds Cameron's assets in her tight fist. . .that their relationship is like one of the store's many displays: luxurious, beautiful, and completely for show. . .and that Cameron's real passion is for the men he takes discreetly to his bed.
Blake has often fantasized about Cameron, but he's completely unprepared to meet him in the flesh--or to have him offer to help with a last-minute window change during a surprise visit to the store late one night. Working side by side, the two men experience an overpowering attraction, and soon, they're engaged in a whirlwind secret affair, played out on private planes, in New York penthouses, behind office doors and in a remote, exotic beach house. For Blake, life with Cameron has its drawbacks--the secrecy and sneaking around--but it's sexier and more tender than he ever could have hoped. . .and it's about to get hotter.
In need of a fresh look to launch his new cologne, Cameron finds it in his lover's chiseled cheekbones, ice-blue eyes, long, dark hair and hunky, six-pack abs. It's an offer Blake can't refuse, and within weeks, he's gone from shop-boy to poster god. A billboard of Blake romping in the California surf wearing only a pair of skin-tight leather low-riders stops traffic in Times Square and Hollywood. Suddenly, he's the "it" boy, wanted and feted from coast to coast, yet having to keep his feelings for Cameron in the shadows. But someone is unhappy about Blake's sudden rise to fame, and the growing love between the designer and his model. . .someone who knows their secrets. . .someone determined to make them pay dearly. And as the days tick down until the celebrity-packed party that will launch Blake's star, it's clear that the only way Cameron and Blake can hold on to what they have is to let go of everything else. . .
Riveting and compulsively entertaining, Male Model is a wickedly revealing glimpse into the rarified world of fashion--the conniving stylists and creative directors who'd step on anyone to get ahead, the insecure models who swing both ways, the temperamental diva directors, the jaded wives living on couture shows and kinky boudoir habits, the barely concealed rage and need, lust and envy, desperation and dreams they all share. . .and the secrets they'd all kill to keep under (stylish) wraps.
From the author of Make it Count comes the first novel in the In Focus series…
 
With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend Landry— and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother’s controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.
 
As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father’s memory than to scatter his ashes at the sites he held sacred. And there’s no one Justin would rather share the experience with more than Landry.
 
But Justin knows he can’t escape forever. Eventually he’ll have to return home and join his mother’s Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is, and the fact that he’s in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.

Admitting what he wants could hurt his mother’s conservative political career. But with every click of his shutter and every sprinkle of ash, Justin can’t resist Landry’s pull. And when the truth comes into focus, neither is prepared for the secrets the other is hiding.

Megan Erickson worked as a journalist covering real-life dramas before she decided she liked writing her own endings better and switched to fiction. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. When she's not tapping away on her laptop, she's probably listening to the characters in her head who won't stop talking.
From the bestselling author of The Rosie Project comes a romantic novel about true love, second chances, and decades of great music.

Two decades ago, Adam Sharp’s piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, an intelligent and strong-willed actress. They had a chance at something more—but Adam didn’t take it.

Now, on the cusp of turning fifty, Adam likes his life. He’s happy with his partner Claire, he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, he looks after his mother, and he does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been. And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?

Set to the soundtrack of our lives, The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion follows along with emotion and humor as one man looks back on his past and decides if having a second chance is worth the risk.

Her search leads Jane to a young woman named Nell, a woman with a scarred past and a strange power, a woman who may hold the key to saving the missing vampire, if Jane can convince her to assist.
