|New Books and Stories from Neil S. Plakcy|
|Love on Stage|
|This is the second in my "Love on" series, which began
with last year's Love on Site. Manny's roommate and fellow FU grad,
Gavin Kaczmarek is a golden boy, desired by all. But though he's handsome
and talented, Gavin is drifting -- working as a barista at a funky, Fair
Trade coffee shop on South Beach and modeling for print ads. But when he
sings for music producer Miles Goodwin while serving his coffee, a whole
new world of opportunity opens for him. |
The obvious attraction between Gavin and Miles takes them to bed, and then on an adventure that leads to performance and YouTube fame--but when insecurity arises on both their parts, can their budding romance survive the summer heat and blossom, or die with the falling autumn leaves? If you liked Love on Site, I hope you'll enjoy Gavin's story -- and there are more stories of these college frat brothers to come. Buy it here from Loose Id, here from ibooks, or here from Amazon.com.
|From murderers to missing babies to a shaggy dog with
an unusual appetite, Kimo has his hands full in this selection of ten short
investigations in the Aloha State. Sun-drenched streets hide bodies in their
shadows and clues lurk in the most unusual places, from a hearse to flowering
hedge to a psychic who provides Kimo with an unexpected revelation. These
sexy, smart and satisfying stories will please new readers and fans of the
Mahu series as well. |

|The Noblest Vengeance|
La mas noble vengansa es el perdon (A Ladino proverb meaning "The noblest vengeance is forgiveness.)
Bodyguard partners Aidan and Liam are deeply in love, living as expatriates in Nice, France. When Aidan's distant cousins in Istanbul need protection from dangerous adversaries he and Liam are on the next plane to Turkey - but the real danger to their relationship may come from their very different ideas about family connections.
Can their love withstand assassins with a deadly secret to keep hidden - and Liam's foul-mouthed mother? Have Body Will Guard #6, The Noblest Vengeance, is now available as an ebook from Loose Id as well as from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ibooks and other retailers.
|Whom Dog Hath Joined|
|Reformed computer hacker Steve Levitan still gets a thrill from snooping into places online where he shouldn't be.
When his golden retriever Rochester discovers a human bone at the Friends Meeting during the Harvest Days festival, these two unlikely
sleuths are plunged into another investigation.
They will uncover uncomfortable secrets about their small town's past as they dig deep into the Vietnam War era, when local Quakers helped draft resisters move through Stewart's Crossing on their way to Canada. Does that bone Rochester found belong to one of those young men fleeing conscription? Or to someone who knew the secrets that lurked behind those whitewashed walls?
|Steve's got other problems, too. His girlfriend Lili wants to move in with him, and his matchmaking
efforts among his friends all seem to be going haywire.
Whether the death was due to natural causes, or murder, someone in the present wants to keep those secrets hidden. And Steve and Rochester may end up in the crosshairs of a very antique rifle if they can't dig up the clues quickly enough. Amazon has the ebook and print versions, while Barnes & Noble, ibooks, and Smashwords sell the ebook.
|Genie for Hire|
| An ancient genie in a modern, buff body,
Biff Andromeda can't use his magical powers for his own benefit, so he
opens a detective agency in a Miami suburb. A damsel in distress, photographer
Sveta Pshkov, hires him to retrieve a stolen set of boudoir photos she
took of a Russian mobster's wife-snapped for her boyfriend's pleasure,
not her husband's.
Biff's investigation into the spreading tentacles of the Russian mafia turns personal when he realizes that the dangerous female genie he has loved and lost over centuries has a desperate stake in the outcome. Now available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, ibooks, and Smashwords, and in print from CreateSpace.
