The Knights Club
Xavier Knight was starting his life over. A new city. A new club. The past was gone, and he had everything to look forward to… except… love. That ship had sailed, never to return. He was too old to play the games or stack up the one night stands. Until, an old enemy's son walked into his club and his heart.
Sebastian Brady was through. Through with hiding who he was. Through letting his brother officers dictate his life. And completely through, with his family telling him who he was. He turned his back on his badge and his family's heritage in the Atlanta police force. But, he never imagined that he'd be serving drinks in a gay bar and working for the hottest silver fox he had ever seen in his life.
Xavier and Seb have a lot to learn from each other. Hopefully, their growing love will survive Xavier's past, Seb's family, and a host of characters with secrets of their own, who all work at the Knights Club.
Calypso knew he looked good. He loved bright colors, makeup, and most of all, high heels. The higher the better. The sassy mouth and self-assured man he presented to the outside world wasn't how he felt on the inside. At the Knights Club he hide the self-doubt and depression. Until, Benedict Hart walked in bringing all his old demons back to life.
Benedict Hart was a high-priced gigolo. It's not what he started out in life to do but it paid the bills. Meeting Calypso at the Knights Club turned his world upside down. The man was sexy, smart mouthed and completely sure of himself. He made Benedict want things he hadn't thought about in years. Losing a dear friend spurs him into action, but will his past get in their way?
The Knights Club hosts a group of characters diverse in every way, but they are family. Xavier Knight watches over them as if they were his children. And, like most families, things don't always run smoothly.
Rio Garcia was not prepared to become a surrogate father to his seventeen year old brother, but he didn't have much choice in the matter. He did have a choice of them men he could have in his bed. Steve Coulter was on his two strikes and you're out list. Rio didn't trust anyone especially cops. So, why did the man get under his skin and make him sweat.
Steve Coulter had never wanted anything more than to be a cop. Being gay did not fit into his career choice. Keeping things on the down low he could have both, but there was no way he was coming out. He didn't trust anyone that much. Rio Garcia the hot bartender at the Knights Club made him want things he knew he couldn't have, so why did he keep going back.
Trust. It's a big thing. Can Rio and Steve overcome their past issues with trust to find a happily ever after that works for them? Life and family at the Knights Club is always a challenge.
Phillip Hapner was smart and good looking. He just had one problem. He liked to gamble, trouble was he wasn't very good at it. Now, he was trying to stay alive and convince the leader of the underground gambling syndicate, that he didn't know who was in charge. Well, he did have one other problem, Malachi Brady. The cop who was protecting him. Phillip wanted him, even though he knew the man was straight.
Malachi Brady had accepted that his brother was gay. He believed everyone was intitled to love whom they wanted. He knew he wasn't gay, but he was feeling things for Phillip Hapner he'd never felt before. When he was assigned to protect Phillip, the sexual tension between them exploded. Could he figure out what was going on in his head and his body and who was behind the gambling syndicate in Atlanta.
The people who worked at the Knights Club are a family. And like any family, there are times when things just don't go right.
Xavier Knight lied and now his past was catching up to him. Sebastian Brady meant everything to him. Losing him wasn't an option Xavier was ready to accept. Ghosts from his past threaten to open up a secret that needs to stay hidden. He wasn't going to let Zach Brady or anyone else take his happiness away from him.
Zachary Brady had lived in the shadow of his father his entire life. He'd lost his family, his job—everything. What happened between him and Xavier Knight was long ago and best forgotten. He wasn't going to allow it to sabotage his chance to be accepted by his brothers and sister as family again.
Neither man realizes that they don't hold the key to their peace of mind. And when the truth is revealed, it will shake their worlds. Family isn't always the one you are born into, sometimes it's the one you create for yourself.
