New Gay Science-Fiction Detective Novel Series

I’m excited to announce that I have the first three books in my new m/m series for release over the next three months.  “No One Likes Humans (Detectives in Space 1)” is available for pre-order now at Amazon for just £0.99/$0.99, with a release date of 21 April and, by the time that’s released, the second book, “Ensnared“,  will also be available for pre-order.

The series will have a slow-burn gay romance that will develop gradually over the first two books but the mysteries will be the main plot, set on various planets and space stations.  So far, in these three books, there is a murder, a kidnapping and a theft to solve, plus a hidden mystery and the Ensnared (Detectives in Space 2)secrets that both the main characters are hiding, so there will be plenty of excitement and intrigue.

Here is the description for the first book:-

He can’t trust the murder suspects he’s investigating, but he thought he could at least trust the people he works with.

Nick Thomson has been having a bad day for the last four years. As part of the Prince Detective Agency he and his sister Poppy frequently risk their lives to solve cases across the galaxy, only to have Captain Prince take all the credit.

Everyone Has Secrets (Detectives in Space 3)Nick ends up stranded alone on an alien planet, in danger of freezing to death, being enslaved by slavers or trodden on by a giant sea monster. When the most handsome man he’s ever seen shows up he’s certain his luck is improving. He’s wrong.

Reese Zail Kintore is smart and resourceful but he has secrets upon secrets and helping Nick is just the first step in a larger plan.

Discover excitement, danger, humour and a touch of romance with the first book in this science-fiction mystery series.
