After a betrayal like Wickham's there's no hope for a second chance...


Will Darcy is in Dallas to close a merger, not rekindle an old flame. And there's no room left in his heart for George Wickham, his childhood friend and the man who squandered every opportunity ever given to him. It doesn't matter that he still feels all that old desire when they're in a room together. The past belongs in the past.


George Wickham has no idea of the secret merger planned between his company and Pemberley Industries—not until a last minute reassignment brings Wickham onto the transition team. Without warning, he's in face-to-face negotiations with the only man he's ever loved. Forgiveness is impossible after what he did a decade ago, but that doesn't mean he doesn't still want.


Their passionate encounters in the boardroom lead them to the bedroom, but is it just a fling? Or can Wickham prove he's a better man than he once was and gain Darcy's trust for good?


Darcy and Wickham steam up the pages of this modern day Pride and Prejudice interpretation.

When a European prince falls for the son of a U.S. senator, will their secret romance cause an international scandal? 
College sophomore Lucas grew up as the privileged son of a powerful senator. That all changed when Lucas’s indiscretion freshman year destroyed his father’s chance at reelection. Now his father is being sent into political exile as ambassador to a small Mediterranean island. Worse, his parents pull Lucas out of school, saying that living abroad will be a good experience. But he’s sure their real goal is to somehow “ungay” him. With embassy guards watching his every move, he’s practically in prison. 

As the younger son of the King of Kalyphos, Prince Nicolo has been called The Spare since birth—and feels every bit as useless as the name suggests. With his responsible older brother being groomed for leadership, twenty-five-year-old Nico struggles to find meaningful work to counter his reputation as Europe’s most wicked playboy prince. His rumored penchant for curvy fashion models hides a truth he doesn’t dare reveal. 

When Nico meets Lucas, the attraction between them is immediate and palpable. Nico offers to show Lucas the island’s sights, and they can’t resist the passion that soon burns between them. They both know discovery could lead to scandal and threaten the very existence of the monarchy of Kalyphos. Can they keep their affair secret? Or will their growing love destroy both their families? 

This sweet and steamy M/M romance has a happy ending and no cliffhanger.
 College Football 2-Book Set!In these two full-length M/M novels, friendship turns to love in the high-testosterone world of college sports. With the media circling and pro football contracts hanging in the balance, can these couples keep their personal lives private?

Up and Coming
An unexpected love could cost him his dreams.

Emmett Cross doesn't have time to date. A college quarterback on a path to turning pro, he can't afford distractions, especially with the academic challenges he faces. When he's blindsided by a growing attraction to his friend Jake, he fights it—rumors that he's bisexual could wreck his draft prospects. But he can't stop thinking about the cute blond with the warm heart and gentle smile.

Biochem major Jake Schott has had a straight-boy crush on Emmett since freshman year. Emmett's cool logic is the perfect complement to Jake’s sensitive nature. He’s sure nothing can come of his longing—until a scorching kiss turns desire into hope. Although the tall, sexy athlete with the trim waist and thick biceps denies that there’s a chance for them, his lustful looks and stolen touches tell a different story. Passion ignites between them, but Emmett insists on hiding the relationship.

When their secret is threatened, will Emmett give up Jake to protect his career? Or will he risk it all for love?

Coming Attraction
When teammates become lovers, sometimes coming out isn't an option. 

Fun-loving Waseem likes his freedom. The wide receiver for the Coastal College Pirates has never stayed with one guy for long. So why can't he put football teammate Brent out of his mind? Brent is straight—he's been dating the same girl for years. Waseem knows that the sexy blond with the chiseled pecs and rakish smile can't be more than a fantasy. 

Business major Brent has always played by the rules. But his vision of the future is shattered when his girlfriend dumps him without warning. Even more confusing, he's developing feelings for Waseem unlike anything he's ever known. Brent isn't gay. So why do his friend's dark, smoldering eyes and infectious laugh stir this strange, new desire in him? It's an attraction Brent can't deny—and a fire quickly blazes between them. 

But Brent's conservative family will never accept his orientation. When the truth comes out, Brent's world is thrown into chaos. Will he give in to the pressure to forget Waseem? Or will he give up everything to be with the man he loves? 

These steamy friends-to-lovers, straight-to-bi M/M romance novels are for a mature audience. They each have a happy ending and no cliffhanger.
“A satire of writerly ambition wrapped in a psychological thriller . . . An homage to Patricia Highsmith, Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe, but its execution is entirely Boyne’s own.”—Ron Charles, The Washington Post

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

Maurice Swift is handsome, charming, and hungry for fame. The one thing he doesn’t have is talent—but he’s not about to let a detail like that stand in his way. After all, a would-be writer can find stories anywhere. They don’t need to be his own.
 
Working as a waiter in a West Berlin hotel in 1988, Maurice engineers the perfect opportunity: a chance encounter with celebrated novelist Erich Ackermann. He quickly ingratiates himself with the powerful – but desperately lonely – older man, teasing out of Erich a terrible, long-held secret about his activities during the war. Perfect material for Maurice’s first novel.

Once Maurice has had a taste of literary fame, he knows he can stop at nothing in pursuit of that high. Moving from the Amalfi Coast, where he matches wits with Gore Vidal, to Manhattan and London, Maurice hones his talent for deceit and manipulation, preying on the talented and vulnerable in his cold-blooded climb to the top. But the higher he climbs, the further he has to fall. . . .
 
Sweeping across the late twentieth century, A Ladder to the Sky is a fascinating portrait of a relentlessly immoral man, a tour de force of storytelling, and the next great novel from an acclaimed literary virtuoso.

Praise for A Ladder to the Sky

“Boyne's mastery of perspective, last seen in The Heart's Invisible Furies, works beautifully here. . . . Boyne understands that it's far more interesting and satisfying for a reader to see that narcissist in action than to be told a catchall phrase. Each step Maurice Swift takes skyward reveals a new layer of calumny he's willing to engage in, and the desperation behind it . . . so dark it seems almost impossible to enjoy reading A Ladder to the Sky as much as you definitely will enjoy reading it.”—NPR

“Delicious . . . spins out over several decades with thrilling unpredictability, following Maurice as he masters the art of co-opting the stories of others in increasingly dubious ways. And while the book reads as a thriller with a body count that would make Highsmith proud, it is also an exploration of morality and art: Where is the line between inspiration and thievery? To whom does a story belong?”—Vanity Fair
