About the author

Santino Hassell was raised in Brooklyn by a strict Catholic family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school-cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.
 
Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

Assured Elites faces its toughest challenge yet. Is this the case that spoils their perfect record of pairing gay celebrities with their ideal match?

Pop singer Mikel loves brilliant older men. He's having trouble getting to his celebrity crush, but he knows the matchmaking service can put the two of them together. So why do they insist he try a date with the hot doctor instead? This Curt guy is miles out of his league.

Topflight neurosurgeon Curt can save lives, but he can't seem to find that fabled work/life balance. There's never time for love. His coworkers take matters into their own hands and sign him up with Assured Elites. A fun date or two with a young pop star could show Curt there's more to life than long hours in the emergency room.

Everybody knows Curt and Mikel are made for each other. Everybody except them.

A Hotter Flame is a steamy romance that features an age gap, a doctor with gifted hands, and a mysterious store that can disappear in a cloud of fog at a moment's notice. Always a guaranteed happy ending, and absolutely no cheating or cliffhangers.

Each novel in the Assured Elites series deals with a different couple. Feel free to start anywhere and to read them in any order:

*A Fiercer Heat (Book #1)

*A Higher Flame (Book #2)

*A Hotter Fire (Book #3)
