As former NSA, Dayton (Day) Ingram has national security chops and now works as a technical analyst for Scorpion. He longs for field work, and scuttling an attack gives his chance. He’s smart, multilingual, and a technological wizard. But his opportunity comes with a hitch—a partner, Knighton (Knight), who is a real mystery. Despite countless hours of research, Day can find nothing on the agent, including his first name!
Former Marine Knight crawled into a bottle after losing his family. After drying out, he’s offered one last chance: along with Day, stop a terrorist threat from the Yucatan. To get there without drawing suspicion, Day and Knight board a gay cruise, where the deeply closeted Day and equally closeted Knight must pose as a couple. Tensions run high as Knight communicates very little and Day bristles at Knight’s heavy-handed need for control.
But after drinking too much, Day and Knight wake up in bed. Together. As they near their destination, they must learn to trust and rely on each other to infiltrate the terrorist camp and neutralize the plot aimed at the US’s technological infrastructure, if they hope to have a life after the mission.  One that might include each other.

Guest Post 

Talk about three other writers who inspire you.

Clive Cussler.  I absolutely love his adventure stories and his characters are a great deal of fun.  His hero, Dirk Pitt, is where I stole my first name.  (Can you tell?)    What I did with my stories was include action, but I also added the romantic tension.
Ken Follett.  He writes amazing, sometimes epic stories that take place over decades and even change continents.  His characters are amazing and he knows how to add romance and emotion to his stories.  Even though they aren’t romances, he knows how to use love to tie into the human condition. 
Ariel Tachna – Ariel was one of the first authors that I got personally close to. I’ve read all her work and she helped me realize very early on what I wanted to write and what made me happy.  I am very lucky to have met her when I did.   
(I also want to give a shout out to my writing sisters, Amy Lane and Mary Calmes.  I love both of them and they’ve helped and supported me during hard times in ways they’ll never know)

Dirk is very much an outside kind of man.  He loves travel and seeing new things.  Dirk worked in corporate America for way too long and now spends his days writing, gardening, and taking care of the home he shares with his partner of more than two decades.  He has a Master’s Degree and all the other accessories that go with a corporate job.  But he is most proud of the stories he tells and the life he's built.  Dirk lives in Pennsylvania in a century old home and is blessed with an amazing circle of friends.
