The continuation of A Reservoir Man


Michael's story continues from A Reservoir Man (2022) where we find him teaching at a university ready to retire. He unexpectedly meets a young man named Ron who becomes his protege and journeys in a haphazard adventure with him throughout America and Europe, each twist and turn of the road bringing unexpected adventures. The journey taken is one of joy, friendship and discovery.


They begin to move closer to Ron, a street light illuminating one of them for a moment; everything else was in darkness. He realized these were some of the kids from the shelter he used to be in. They had a fire in them, maybe it was jealousy that he got out and got on his feet. How did they know that much about Michael? He knew that they could hurt Michael, at his age that could kill him. They could hurt Carol, badly. They might have a knife. He knew how much danger they were in now.

Ron made a move towards the one he recognized, when suddenly all five pounced on Ron, beating on him, taking no break in their punches. One of them picked up Rhonda and threw her against a brick wall. Ron spit blood and, in between blows, tried to move to protect Rhonda. Carol ran to grab Rhonda. She tried to pick her up and saw she was hurt. Ron looked at the young men, spit blood at the closest of them, and screamed, “Fuck you! I hope you all die for what you did to her! Fuck you!”

The noise of this was so loud, a group of people leaving a bar saw the commotion. One of them yelled “Hey! What’s going on there? Hey!” Another woman was dialing for help on her phone. The young men ran away as quickly as possible, disappearing down a dark side street and into the blackness of the night.

They were nearing the back door of the house, Carol carrying Rhonda, with Ron limping on his own. As they approached the door, two of the young men were behind them again, taunting them. He asked Ron if he could meet his boyfriend. Ron lunged at one of them and  fell to the ground. They began to kick him. Carol screamed for help.

Goodreads / Amazon


I was walking along a peaceful path in the woods when a branch snapped beneath my barefoot. Birds flew away, shrieking in the distance. For some strange reason, I was not wearing any shoes. I wiggled my toes and continued my peaceful journey. But I came to a screeching halt when I noticed splotches of blood on the ground. My heart raced, and I thought about turning back. But my feet continued to carry me forward. The splotches were getting larger and becoming more frequent as I walked. And then I saw it. I saw him lying there on the ground in a pool of blood. Mateo. He was lying motionless with his eyes closed. Squealing louder than I’ve ever squealed in my life, I sprinted over to him. “No. No. Teo,” I screamed, rocking his body back and forth with force. I lifted his shirt to see where the blood was coming from. But there was no indication of where it was escaping. His body was intact. I checked his neck for a pulse. Pulse, pulse, where the heck was his pulse? I checked his inner wrist. I couldn’t feel it. “Where is it?” I sobbed, clasping his shirt. “Teo. Please. Please. Come back to me.”

 Welcome to the Nightwood Clan, where family is found.

They finally found each other. Will a trip back home put that all in danger?


At one hundred and fifty years old, Ian finally had everything he wanted. 

Becoming a vampire when he was eighteen, he viewed it as his chance to find his own fated mate, to explore the world, to live and see new things. He’s never regretted his choice, finding friends among paranormals and humans. When he finally meets his mate, he’s amazed that Fate brought him such a perfect fit. Berkley’s handsome, caring, creative. Everything Ian could have wanted in a partner. They settle into their life together, but when a fun outing takes a dangerous turn, will Ian and Berkley be able to save themselves, or will bigotry and hatred win?


Ian tilted his head, his mate bond letting him know that Berkley was close. “Berkley’s almost home. Did ye want to meet him?”

“What kind of question is that?” his aunt scoffed. “Of course, I want to meet him!”

A minute later, he heard the library door open and felt a kiss on his head as Berkley came to sit beside him.

“Aunt Agnes and Uncle Robert, this is my mate Berkley. Berkley, Aggie and Robert,” Ian said.

“Hi, it’s really nice to meet you,” Berkley said, threading his fingers through Ian’s. He was a little nervous about meeting Ian’s family. “I wanted to say thank you as well, for turning Ian and giving him the chance to be himself. I never would have met him otherwise.”

“It’s lovely to meet you as well,” Aggie replied, smiling. “I’m so happy Ian found his mate.”

Berkley leaned against Ian, relaxing as his aunt and uncle spoke to them. They felt like his family too by the time they got off the call.

“They seem nice,” Berkley said, resting his head on Ian’s shoulder. “Did they yell at you like you thought they would?”

“Eh, not as bad as I thought it would be,” Ian admitted. “They loved ye,” he added, giving Berkley a kiss. “Ye know what I just thought of?”


“Rolf is locked in his office working, Emma’s down at the clinic, Gawain never leaves his room, and the rest are still in town working. Want to head upstairs?” Ian asked, blinking flirtatiously.

“To help you get something out of your eye?” Berkley asked dryly.

“Shut up! I was going for flirty,” Ian laughed, shoving at Berkley’s shoulder before standing up.

“Don’t try that one again,” Berkley advised, keeping his face straight. He stood, grabbing his mate around the waist and pulling him close. “I would love to go upstairs with you, even if you don’t have an eyelash in your eye,” he said with a grin.

“Brat. Let’s go then. I want us naked on the bed, and me inside ye. Now,” Ian said, dragging Berkley out of the room.

They stumbled up the stairs, hands groping and stopping occasionally for kisses. Berkley reached out and fumbled for the doorknob, not willing to let go of Ian’s lips so that he could see. He finally got the door open and they fell inside, Ian kicking it shut behind them. As soon as he heard the click, Ian lifted Berkley, hands under his thighs, moving to hold him pinned against the door. Their cocks lined up perfectly and Ian rutted against him, the friction causing them both to moan. Berkley’s fingers tangled in Ian’s shorter red hair, pulling his head back so that he could lick his way down his neck, sucking a love mark near his collar bone.

Ian took a step away from the door, walking them over to the bed and letting Berkley slide down to sit on the edge of the mattress before stepping in closer between his legs.

About the Author 

I have loved reading since I was a child. I also enjoy baking, photography, and seeing new things. My favorite books are romances with a happily ever-after. The world is a crazy place. Sometimes escaping into a great book is the only way I can truly relax. Happily-ever-after is my favorite type of book, so my stories will end with a HEA, even if the road is a little bumpy getting there. I am also a wife, a mother, and a photographer.

Even time cannot stop love.


Even time cannot stop love.

University professor Matthew Richter hates complications. Planning his every day down to the second leaves no opportunity for a social life, which he doesn’t feel the need for anyway. Jian Wei helps run his family’s business. The only thing he enjoys more than tormenting his parents and siblings with endless pranks is plotting his next trick on a certain uptight customer.

Though so different, chance inexplicably draws them both to a World War II photography exhibit, and the aging photographer Milton Glass. Milton shares the story of two soldiers brutally cut down on the battlefield—which has haunted him for the better part of his life—and his suspicions that the soldiers shared a bond they never fully realized.

Now, in the twilight of his life, Milton can’t help but wonder if Matthew and Jian share a potential bond of their own. Could they possibly be the same men from so long ago, returned for a second chance at being together?

Milton can hope. 


Jian opened a cardboard container filled with lemon tea and grabbed two six-packs. Mister Important Professor could afford to buy two, especially since he’d inconvenienced Jian in the first place. He then checked the incoming produce, and when he didn’t find any lychee, grabbed a third six-pack of the tea.

Jian’s father was nowhere to be seen when he returned. So much the better.

“Here you go, Mister Important Man.” Jian transferred the tea from his arms to the arms of the object of his discontent. “Thank you for waiting so patiently while your humble servant retrieved what he could of your most profound wishes. No fresh lychee either.” He started to head away, then stopped. “Or is it Mister Important Professor?”

The professor’s face turned beet red. “I never said I was important.”

Thinking of the professor as the professor felt…odd. The name suggested someone much older, like in their fifties or sixties. This one didn’t look much over Jian’s age. Maybe he was an old soul acting like an old man in a younger man’s body. What a waste of good genetics.

“True. My father says you’re important.” Jian knew he could be accused of being rude, but he switched to speaking Cantonese to avoid insulting the professor in a language the man understood. “You almost never talk when you come in here, and you give off the impression you don’t want to talk to anybody, like they’re beneath you. You might even be handsome if you learned to smile and changed everything about your personality. Right now, you’re just another uptight white man. But, we do appreciate your business.

The professor stared at Jian for at least a solid ten seconds. While the man remained silent, he moved his lips, though almost imperceptivity. Jian swore the professor must be continuing the conversation in his head. Seriously? Who does something like that? Is he even human? The professor finally took a deep breath and exhaled. “Thank you for the items.”

Jian watched him start walking away. Much to his surprise, the professor paused and looked back over his shoulder.

“Oh, I don’t think I’m better than anyone else, and I’m not trying to be something I’m not,” the professor spoke in perfect Cantonese. “Also, I come here because I love the food. Finally, you don’t know me well enough to talk about my personality. That would be like me saying you come across as someone who enjoys annoying his father and the customers for no other reason than because you can, and you probably admire yourself in the mirror every morning, too.

Jian felt his jaw drop, which he then shut with a loud snap. “What? Seriously? You’ve been shopping here since we opened two years ago and you couldn’t mention you speak Cantonese? You’ve understood everything we’ve been saying about…I mean to you?” He decided to change tactics and switch to Mandarin. “You sure talk when you want to.” See how Mr. Important Professor liked that!

I only speak when I have something to say,” the professor replied back to him in Mandarin.

Jian felt his own face burn with the sudden rush of blood. “Don’t let my father hear you speak Mandarin! He’ll probably offer you my bedroom and I’ll wind up in the basement. Why are white people so weird?” He stormed off and caught a Caucasian woman glaring at him. “Not you. Him. He’s weird. You’re perfection. Have you tried the new Thai milk tea packets we just got in?”

Jian!” His father’s voice bellowed throughout the store.

“Huh.” Jian looked up at the ceiling. Had his father installed cameras he didn’t know about? “He doesn’t even have to see me do something wrong anymore to know I did.”
