The Pinkerton Man Series
The Pinkerton Man
Stiles Langberry leaves England under the dark cloud of blackmail.

In the course of his investigation, he becomes involved with Paul, one of the prostitutes. Complicating matters, one of the suspects draws Stiles like no man before him. Stiles knows he must stop the killer before he strikes again.
Murder in New York
Home on the Range
Pinkerton Agent Stiles Long is sent to the Circle W Ranch to uncover who is killing the ranch's cattle. In order to discover the truth about the goings on at the ranch, Stiles has to prove to the ranchers he's more than a good-looking city slicker.
Savage Beare, the head ranch foreman, is far from happy that Stiles is there to check things out. He has secrets of his own.
Stiles finds Savage incredibly good-looking, but cold and aloof.
He's also a suspect. One of many.
When Stiles' best friend and partner, Lizzie Ferguson, is kidnapped things begin to shake apart.
Stiles doesn't trust anyone and he needs to find Lizzie before it's too late.
Coming back to New York to see her ailing father, Lizzie Ferguson did not expect to find him healthy and newly married to a much younger woman. She, also, didn't expect to connect with an old lover and childhood friend or be accused of killing her father. But, life has a way of knocking you to your knees when you least expect it.
Stiles Long had always regretted that the killer, from his first case as a Pinkerton Agent, had got away. Now, in New York it was happening again. The Hotel Astor Bar was a meeting place for men who enjoyed the company of men. And, some of them were being brutally murdered. When one of the suspects from the original case appears at the hotel, Stiles is torn between his desire to stop a killer and kiss the man senseless.
Two different cases, but some of the faces overlap from one to the other. Stiles and Lizzie are in a race to discover who the killers are before another body gets added to the count.
Stiles Long emphatically did not want his lover, Michael O'Leary to go on the assignment he had been given. He didn't care that Michael was an amazing poker player or that his commander thought Michael was the perfect man for the job. He almost lost Michael once. He couldn't go through that again.
Michael needed this. He needed to prove that he was able to take care of himself. He didn't need Stiles to take care of him. He needed to be Stiles' equal. The poker game in Durango, Colorado was his chance to prove that. The fact that Stiles didn't want him to go didn't matter. Michael had to do this.
Lizzie Ferguson was Stiles partner in the Pinkerton Agency. She was a good agent. That didn't mean, she had to like being dressed in satin and lace, showing way too much of her body to total strangers. Lizzie knew there was more going on at Maverick's Saloon, and it might just cost her life.
None of them suspected that a simple poker game would turn into a deadly nightmare. If the three of them weren't careful, one of them might just end up the next victim.
Deep as the Ocean
What started as a vacation for Stiles Long, Michael O’Leary, and Lizzie Ferguson, soon turns to murder?
