When Raleigh's family demands his return, he must figure out a way to save the man he loves.


Joey Santiago works for his uncle, the de facto leader of the Santiago Crime family. His usual job is to drive the escorts to and from their clients. He likes it well enough. He doesn't judge the escorts for making money off sex. When his uncle asks him to go check on Raleigh Patterson, one of the older escorts, Joey does as he's ordered.


Raleigh Patterson has been an escort for the Santiagos since he turned eighteen. They treat him well and he's been able to put himself through college. But he knows getting older doesn't help when a lot of clients are looking for young twinks. Plus Raleigh's having problems with his family demanding he return home and take his place at the head of the coven.


As the attraction between Raleigh and Joey flares, they have to figure out a way to save Raleigh from the plots of his mother's coven or Raleigh could lose everything he'd come to cherish.

Unsafe Exposure
Hidden Wolves #4
By Kaje Harper

covers/KH_Unsafe_Exposure.jpg

Stepping out of the closet as a gay man may be a walk in the park, compared to coming out as a werewolf.


From the moment artist Dylan Shore arrives in Chicago, his life gets twisted like a kaleidoscope. Why does a street gang he's never met want him dead? Why is a hot but odd mathematician stalking him? And how can half the things Alex Corwin says possibly be true, no matter how honest he seems?


Alex has a frightening dilemma. Dylan is attractive, appealing, out and proud. He's also completely unaware that he's a werewolf. It shouldn't be Alex's job to tell him, and warn him that gay wolves usually end up dead. But someone has to, before he finds out in blood and violence.


Chicago's not Alex's home town, but somehow he needs to protect Dylan from the local packs, protect the Packs from being outed by Dylan, and keep his cool around the first man to touch his own deeply-closeted heart.
