Closer Than Blood

Forbidden passion, blackmail and murderous intent in the cold, glittering heart of Manhattan. 

Against his better judgement, slick, pansexual hitman Frank Mancini falls for the sultry sister of his latest client. He is hiding a dark secret, and intends to seduce her before his past is revealed.

Tony Freemantle is desperate. His last wish is to seek vengeance on the half-brother he blames for his misfortunes. He’s never met him. He doesn’t even know what he looks like. All he knows is that he wants him dead. 

Pagan Freemantle is the innocent woman unwillingly caught up in her sibling’s deadly plan.When she discovers she has to pay for the hit, her attempts to make a deal throws her headlong into a dangerous attraction with a man who is patently bad news. 

And can she trust Richard Mason, the elusive millionaire half-brother who is just a seductive voice at the end of a telephone? When a road trip to California ends with shocking revelations, it seems she can trust no-one but herself.


It might take the arrival of an alien being to remind an isolated man what it means to be human.   With a stressful job, his boss breathing down his neck for profitable results, and an estranged wife and daughter, scientist Kurt Lomax doesn’t think life can get much harder, until a nonbinary extraterrestrial with an otherworldly beauty inconveniently shows up at his apartment.  

Vardam watched the destruction of their own world, and they don’t want to see the same thing happen on Earth. They are lonely, and feelings soon develop between them and the supposedly straight scientist–feelings Kurt reciprocates, much to his confusion.  

The arrival of amateur interpreter Tom Soames–whose Goth appearance belies a gentle heart–is like a ray of sunshine in the somber lab. He acts as matchmaker for man and tentacled extraterrestrial, unwittingly instigating a national crisis when the news breaks out.  

But will a misunderstanding ruin Kurt and Vardam’s chances for happiness together–along with the hope for salvation for humanity?

Going Down

Full of filth and high-octane frolics, Going Down is a work of pulp fiction, the first in Lady Jaguar’s Pulp Reads series.

Tino Santini is offered the role of Personal Assistant to his wealthy CEO, after being trapped with him in an elevator just before Thanksgiving. It seems a night of scorching sex can do wonders for a flagging career.

Maverick pansexual businessman, Richard Mason, seems to have it all, but a former female lover, a New York gangster and a murky past all threaten to destroy his chance of happiness. Now Richard wants more of Tino’s talented mouth as well as his organisational skills.

Neither of them expect their professional relationship and private arrangement to be anything other than business, until a personal tragedy means that Richard needs Tino more than ever. 

Author’s Note: This was originally a standalone short story on Wattpad but due to reader demand, I’ve extended it to a full-length erotic fiction novel. This Amazon publication has bonus content not found on the Wattpad edition. Richard Mason first appeared in my first novel, Closer Than Blood. Whilst some elements of that story are mentioned in this book, this is not a sequel, but an alternative story.

Lexington Black

With a life marred with tragedy and disappointment, Rob Martyn has found it hard take risks or trust anyone. Yet after being asked on a date by a suave stranger, he discovers his daring side.

Lexington Black is the wealthy New Yorker who rocks Rob’s world. A ruthless businessman, Lex is accustomed to getting what he wants, and he wastes no time in luring Rob to his Manhattan penthouse for a month, on the pretext of rebooting his writing career.

As Rob is introduced to gay Manhattan by Lex’s colourful friends, he is unaware that years before, Lex was a student at the college where Rob’s father was Headmaster. A brief encounter between them may have resulted in the tragedy that Rob has been unable to forget. With this secret hanging between them, it is only a matter of time before Rob and Lex’s relationship is balanced on a knife edge.
