Available Now-Daddio (Horizons #3)

The third book in the Horizons Series is once again available at Amazon and a free read with your Kindle Unlimited Subscription.


Six months after meeting at the Taste of Chicago, Lil Lampert and Grier Dilorio have moved in together. Their love glows brighter than ever, but the couple soon realizes that it takes more than three magic words and outstanding sex to make a partnership work.

Grier’s problems should have ended when Jillian acknowledged him as Luca’s biological father and he began to pursue a career in interior design. Instead, he’s hampered by old fears and bad habits that are hard to let go.

Adjusting to a small apartment in a four-season state—with a much younger man and his eight-year-old son—is a challenge for Lil. His position as Luca’s “Daddio” is a delicate balancing act between doing what he thinks is right and deferring to Grier’s experience.

Life is stressed enough, but now Lil and Grier also face an unexpected complication from their son’s parochial school. Suddenly Luca’s safety—and their happiness as an emerging family—depends on Lil’s keen understanding of human nature and Grier’s willingness to learn.

New Re-release: Horizons (Book # 1 in the 5 book series)

Golden boy Clark Stevens is on the verge of realizing his NFL dreams when he breaks his arm during a scrimmage. The injury is minor, but his attraction to the doctor who patches him up is not.

Dr. Jody Williams lost his heart to a man he buried five years ago. Still grieving, he’s not looking for love. But the patient who’s part Nordic God, part lost soul, ticks all his boxes, leaving him with feelings he didn’t know he was still capable of having.

Beneath the flawless jock exterior, Clark is hiding not just his sexual identity, but a challenging disorder. His controlling father won’t allow him to take meds to manage his ADD, fearing they’ll affect his performance on the football field. Now his academic struggles have put his entire future in jeopardy, and Jody is more than happy to ride to the rescue as a tutor. But playing white knight quickly turns to more and the wild attraction between them can’t be contained.

Athletes have started coming out, but it’s always a gamble, especially without family support. Now Clark must decide. Should he hide his true self or risk it all for the man he loves?
