The Quidell Brothers started as a way for me to push my writing boundaries. I am, at my core, a writer of high-intensity speculative fiction: My stories usually buzz with Fates and dragons, witches and shifters, spaceships and pulse-pounding time travel. I write tales of good people fighting the apocalyptic ends of multiple worlds and, for me, the erotic love scenes and daily life battles of the Quidell family represented a way to grow beyond my “familiar.”
Turned out that I fell in love with the kind of storytelling the Quidells offered. The brothers will be pulling me back into their deliciously hot, utterly romantic world and I hope that you, dear reader, will be pulled right along with me.
In 2017, join me as I explore the stories of the men on the periphery of the Quidell family—Andy, Jason, and Mack—with Andrew's Kiss in late 2017, and a return to Dan and Camille with Daniel's Vows, in 2018.
Book One: Thomas's Muse
As an undergrad, Sammie Singleton became the muse of an artist she didn’t know. But the connection vanished, and now Sammie drowns in the colorless drudgery of corporate America. Lost and abandoned, Sammie longs for the scent of paints, the vibrancy of reds, the soft stroking of a feather brush…
Her world flashes alive the moment she meets Thomas Quidell. Sammie quickly realizes the brilliant and talented Tom is her long-lost artist—and the man she's been fantasizing about all these years.
Tom’s touch awakens needs Sammie thought long dead. When he offers a lifeline out of her soul-killing life, Sammie doubts pull her under. Is she strong enough to find her way back to love?
Book Two: Daniel's Fire
The blaze that destroyed Daniel Quidell’s firefighting career scarred more than his body. Court cases, therapy, and five pins in his bones later, he’s a divorced single father working himself ragged to provide a good life for his son. But the strain leaves him exhausted—and overwhelmed.
Until Camille Frasier walks into his life.
Beautiful and empathic, Camille soothes Dan’s mind and eases the pains of his body. But she desires more than a gentle hand to help her body to find its fire. And she hopes Dan will give her what she needs.
But some wounds don’t heal correctly. And no matter how much heat Camille offers, Dan feels trapped inside the cold box of his past. Is he strong enough to find his way out?
Book Three: Robert's Soul
Robert Quidell understands the side effects of his bad boy behavior: No bonds. No commitment. No connection. He gives his goddesses one night of wish fulfillment and supernova sex. But he always wakes up alone.
Isolde Wellington understands the life of a photographer: She’s outside. Always moving. Always documenting the world. She creates brilliant, soul-melting photos. But she, too, always wakes up alone.
Graduate school promises Rob the opportunity to shed his bad boy reputation. For Isa, the opportunity to crash in her brother’s apartment offers a moment of stability.
They never expected to find each other.
But connection means sacrifice. Commitment-free lives offer ease—but no touch. No brilliantly fulfilled wishes. Will Rob and Isa fall into their old ways again, or will they fight for their souls’ desires?
THE QUIDELL BROTHERS BOX SET includes: THOMAS'S MUSE, DANIEL'S FIRE, and ROBERT'S SOUL
Subscriber Only Short Story: Samantha's Touch
A short story prequel to Thomas’s Need, Quidell Brothers book 4 and the sequel to Thomas’s Muse.
Book Four: Thomas's Need
It’s been a year since a whirlwind affair brought Thomas Quidell and Samantha Singleton together. Good jobs and wedding plans now swirl around them—as do a mortgage and the stress of Tom’s blossoming art career. It’s tough, but a strong relationship can weather any storm, and Tom and Sammie believe theirs to be among the strongest.
When a job vanishes and a parent becomes ill, the trauma pulls them in opposite directions. Separated by distance and desperation, they must come to terms with what it means to be apart—and how to work as a team to stay together. Sacrifice may be their only route forward. Will their love survive?
