Archie survived The Change, when the sky turned red and rocks rained down on Earth, destroying one half of London. He lost everyone in his family—and his job as a fireman. Now he works in an office, his life filled with uncertainty and terror. Something isn’t right. Infomercials on the TV tell him how to live, how to dress, and how to conduct himself. He has no friends, his world reduced to loneliness and confusion.

More confusion is on the way in the form of Dan, a man from The Other Side, the part of London where people live like rats and harbour disease. When Dan tells Archie what’s really going on, life is even more sinister than Archie thought. The government have been lying, and everyone on Earth has no choice but to comply with their wishes.

The two men strike up a friendship, and together they plan to do as they’re told and live as best they can. But the government has other ideas; Archie and Dan once again face a frightening and heart-wrenching experience. One they are supposed to forget…

Dominic Hurley is presented with a mission—by a lion who changes into a man. Can he fulfill destiny's wishes without bringing himself harm?

Dom is an average guy, working in a book packing company and getting through his boring life the best way he knows how. One Friday night, after sinking one too many beers, he finds an animal on his apartment balcony window—an animal that changes his life.

Levian Brooke is that animal, although he’s also one sexy-as-hell man. He has arrived in London to make Dominic his mate—and to get Dom’s help in a quest to free one of Levian’s family members from London zoo.

Dominic is drawn into the seedier parts of his beloved London in his search for someone to create fake passports so Levian can return to where he came from. A sinister element find out his involvement in Levian’s quest and come after him.

It’s a race against time and a fight for his life as Dominic finds inner strength to do things he’d never even dreamed about.

Ke’ja has been stolen from Earth and taken to the planet Mezdon. He’s a sex slave, living in a hovel while his master, Vor’trev, lives next door in a modern house. This is the way of Mezdon, where every master has a slave and sex is considered something that can be done anywhere, anytime. Thrown by this reality, Ke’ja has to adapt—or find a way to return to Earth. The problem is, he’s already falling for his master and is fighting his emotions. He wants to go home but at the same time doesn’t want to leave the man who lights him up inside.

Vor’trev is not only a master but a judge, a man who has the power to return slaves to Earth if he feels they’ve been abducted unfairly. He’s broken the law for his previous slaves and engineered it so that their return to Earth went unnoticed by other members of Mezdon authority. But Ke’ja… No, he can’t bring himself to set the slave free. He’s Vor’trev’s, the only slave that has touched his heart, the only man he’s wanted as a life partner. Letting him go isn’t an option.

Two men, both wanting each other but unable to get past what they have to do to be together. Which one of them will break first?

Loving your best friend is easy. Telling him you do…well, that’s the hard part.

Michael and Steven grew up together—just them, no girls allowed. They’d always planned to join the military, but when it came time to sign up, Michael couldn’t do it. For years, Michael has worried every time Steven is out in the desert, risking his life to serve and protect. He dreads the day Steven won’t come home.

Steven has been through a dreadful ordeal on duty, and while in the hospital, he’s had time to think about what’s important in life. He misses Michael—needs to get back home to be with him—and he has something he wishes to say, something he’s held inside as far back as he can remember…

When the two men reunite, revelations are the name of the game. There is no question they’ve always loved each other, but now that they have the chance to express that love, will they?

Sometimes, trusting your instincts leads to happiness and love.

After coming out, life took a turn for the worse. I knew people would view me differently, of course I did, but… See, here’s the thing. How does a person cope when a few of their work colleagues play such a cruel trick that it leaves them wondering if they’ll ever trust anyone again? It happened to me, and trusting isn’t something I do easily now.

Until James came along. He’s a work colleague too, but my issue is, I keep thinking he’s playing another trick. You know, reeling me in, making me think he’s a good bloke.

He’s asked me to go out with him, and, although I should maybe get to know him a bit better first, I’ve said I’ll go. I need to get back out there, live a little. And if I get hurt? Well, I’ll just have to deal with it. Again.

But maybe he won’t hurt me. Break my heart and all that. Please God.

You can run but you can’t hide. Problems have a habit of following you, even if it’s only inside your head.

Ross decides to start a new life away from the grim belly of London, England, unable to stomach being a cop any longer. He tells himself he’s moving miles away to find himself a bed partner, but he’s lying. He has to. Facing up to the real reason he’s leaving isn’t something he can handle. His last undercover job proved too much—his life was at risk—and if he stays in London he’ll likely end up dead. Nightmares plague him, his subconscious unable to switch the past off. So he moves to a ranch in America, thinking the new surroundings and different lifestyle will help him to heal—and to forget. What he soon realizes is he’s jumping from the frying pan into the fire…

Joe’s passion—that of caring for the horses—is the only thing that keeps him sane. He’s a surly man, and for good reason—a reason he hasn’t told a soul. Folks think he’s mean and unapproachable and suspect him of committing murder. More than once. Locals assume that Joe got let off the hook. Nothing could be further from the truth, but Joe lets people think what they will. He’s done with their speculation and sly looks.

When Ross and Joe meet, tension is rife. The air between them prickles with animosity as well as sexual tension. Both have a past they can’t get over. Both have skeletons in their closets they wish would turn to dust. And both have to make a decision. Can they cast their fears aside and trust each other, or have the terrors they’ve experienced ruined them for love?

Just when they thought the nightmares couldn’t get worse, they realized they weren’t sleeping.

Barry and Tag hoped that even with Barry’s Dreams still keeping them on the hunt for murderous criminals, they might find some peace in their new home together. The rest of the Team has their backs and they all have their assigned roles—whether they like it or not—so it should be easy.

With Tag away on business and newest Team member, Jason, emotionally shattered after his break up with long-time lover Daniel, they soon find that if the wicked don’t rest, neither do those tasked with bringing them to justice. When the Dreams start to go on the fritz and Jason seeks out the company of a vicious and sinister Dom named Karrick, it seems all hell is about to break loose.

It will be up to the Team to sort out friend from foe on their own. The veterans of The Dreaming are forced to follow and their untried partners are thrust into the lead. They will have to learn how to get along, and how to use their talents without otherworldly help if they hope to stay alive long enough to figure out what’s going on.

Ten years after Charlie’s death, Ben still hasn’t faced the fact his first love is gone. Unable to grieve, he’s acted the office clown and made his life so busy he never has time to think. Upon a return to the home he once shared with Charlie, Ben finally admits that Charlie is gone. Then a black panther appears and chases him through the forest, changing his life forever.

That panther is Francois, a mesmerising man who breaks Ben’s self-imposed celibacy and shows him it’s time to move on. Ben visits Francois at his secluded cabin, and a fever overtakes him, compelling him to have sex with the alluring man. Ben finds he wants to live again, but although the sexual attraction between himself and Francois is strong, he knows Francois isn’t the man for him. He’s just a stepping stone on the path of grief, encouraging him to embrace a new life.

When Ben visits a gay club that caters to people who have fantasies he’s never been able to act out, he meets Dave. There is no instant spark like there was with Francois, no immediate falling in lust or love, but an easy camaraderie and sense of wellbeing makes Ben realise you can love someone over time. Knowing something otherworldy has been involved in his transition, Ben is finally forced to think, to accept that everything happens for a reason. Now all he has left to do is say goodbye to Charlie, something he never thought he would do…


Oliver gets calls from the dead, imploring him to help them find their killers. He’s heard them since he was a child and now assists the police in their investigations. He works closely with Detective Langham—and has steadily fallen more in love with him every day of the six months he’s known him. But does Langham feel the same? Is Langham even gay?

When Oliver answers the call of a dead woman, he finds himself standing in a remote field, gazing down at her corpse. Someone else is out there with him, though, watching, waiting to cause him harm. After he’s run off the road, Oliver has no choice but to aid Langham in finding her killer—no choice because more people are killed and more people call out to him…he’s unable to ignore their pleas.

As the body count grows and the investigation becomes more complex, Oliver realises that Langham is indeed very gay—and out to make Oliver his.

Oliver and Langham have the huge task of finding more than twenty men who have committed a murder—one where the victim is gay and has been used and abused in a sexual rite. Upon viewing the first victim, Oliver knows this is the first of many, and he’s dreading the bodies piling up.

Adam is sick of hiding. He’s secreted himself away since he was attacked by a violent gang and knows he needs to sort himself out before his boyfriend, Dane, gets tired of looking after his every need. After he’s exposed to another frightening episode in the mini-mart where Dane works, they both realise something’s got to give. They move away to Lower Repton, a small hamlet that recently hit the news due to the Sugar Strands case.

What should have been a shelter from the evil of city life becomes another nightmare. Adam is forced to face his fears when he and Dane find a dead body—and Adam starts hearing voices in his head. The two men meet Oliver and Langham, and together they are drawn into a web of deceit.


With a serial killer on the loose, Langham and Oliver have their work cut out finding him before he kills again…

Detective Langham has had a case on his desk for a while, but there have been no clues, no leads, and no damn break to help him find a serial killer. That is, until his psychic lover, Oliver, hears the voice of someone he knows—a woman he works with at the local newspaper who has been abducted. When the woman is dumped in the stream, with the readers thinking she’s dead, Langham decides to goad the killer via a press release and put one of his female sergeants out there as bait. He can only hope his team remain vigilant as the time draws near for them to catch the killer…

David is that killer. After growing up in a dysfunctional household, he has very important reasons for abducting then killing women. He’s on a personal journey, intent on understanding why he does what he does—why he enjoys dressing in women’s clothing sometimes and why he doesn’t have sexual feelings for either gender. With his doll, Sally, by his side, David is convinced he will find the answers he seeks…


Can they open up to one another and explain exactly what they want in the bedroom?

Oliver and Langham are on the hunt for another killer—one who befriends women then kills them because he thinks God told him to. He uses a roulette wheel to determine their manner of death, and the result is never pretty.

During their investigation, Oliver and Langham have to visit a BDSM club, knowing the killer will be there. However, Oliver’s senses are messed up—too many people around, and the stage show is a little too interesting—so the man they seek gets away. After the show, the two men have questions about what they want in the bedroom. Can they open up to one another and explain exactly what they want?

Through messages from the dead, Oliver knows the killer will lure another woman away very soon. The question is, will Oliver and Langham reach her in time before the roulette wheel spins again?


Oliver and Langham take a much-needed break to get away from crime—but it follows them, ensuring they’re pulled into another murder case.

Oliver and Langham take two weeks off so they can rest after a string of murder cases has left them worn out. On the way to their destination, Langham spots two criminals driving in the same remote area. His mind goes into overdrive. What are they doing out here? Known for being hitmen, surely they can only be on a job. Unable to quell his hunch, Langham is further on edge after their arrival at a small village pub where they’re staying. There’s something about the place—and the woman who runs it.

A mile or so away, a hitman, Jackson, is readying himself to kill a killer who is coming after his millionaire client, Randall. Jackson has an immediate attraction to Randall, and the pair discover more about one another in one evening than Jackson’s revealed to anyone in a long time. He’s been hurt before and has shied away from love—but there’s something about Randall he can’t ignore.

Lorie runs the pub where Oliver and Langham are staying. Colin is the butler at Randall’s mansion. They have known one another since they were children but were destined to spend their lives apart. They have both followed similar paths. How will their actions impact on Oliver, Langham, Jackson and Randall?

Murder. It’s everywhere…

Their holiday should mean freedom and fun. Murder has other ideas…

After a murder case ruined their last break away, Oliver and Langham try again by going to the Caribbean. Surely by flying so far from home, they’ll get a few days of peace and quiet where crime doesn’t mar their holiday. Unfortunately, like murder, fate has other ideas…

They rent an idyllic vacation hut that stands on struts in a turquoise sea—so perfect, so tranquil… Until a body floats past and Langham rushes out to save their life. He’s too late, though, and after going to the police station to give a statement, Langham and Oliver are dragged into the seedy underbelly of the seemingly quiet little town.

There’s a war going on between two gangs, and with a spirit telling Oliver he must complete a request to save someone else’s life, he and Langham find themselves too close to one gang for comfort. Murder has once again dogged them—but if they’re not careful, it might actually claim them as victims.

Being kidnapped isn’t their idea of a fun holiday activity, but neither is returning home to discover the nightmare isn’t over after all…

While working undercover, Langham thought he’d catch some kind of break. He thought wrong.

Years ago, Langham was on a case where missing men were being buried in other people’s graves. He’s now working undercover at a cemetery, trying to glean information. Is someone who works at the graveyard involved? Will new bodies be dumped there now that men have started going missing again? He isn’t sure, but when a man starts staring at him through the railings, Langham’s instinct kicks in. Something isn’t right.

Before he can do anything about it, he’s kidnapped and bundled into a van. Later, his lover Oliver is shoved into the van, too, and they’re taken on a long journey. With the dead remaining silent and not giving Oliver anything to go on that will help them in their dilemma, the pair realise they’re on their own.

Left hanging by their wrists from a cellar ceiling, the two men acknowledge that maybe this time their luck really has run out. But what they don’t see is what’s going on in the big house they’re incarcerated in, and that maybe, just maybe, someone might be on their side…

Sometimes you have to suffer in order to make the one you love happy…

Steve eavesdrops on a phone conversation—and his whole world crashes around him. He hears something he’d never wanted to hear and knows his lover, Christopher, will be giving him some bad news. Two weeks go by, and with no news, no devastating upset coming his way, Steve decides to end their relationship…to save Christopher the guilt of doing it himself.

Lost in a sea of confusion, Steve tries to push himself back into the single game, only to find memories and his love for Christopher just won’t go away. Alcohol and bars only make his loneliness more apparent and, shoving his pride aside, he visits Christopher in order to make things right between them again.

However, there’s more to that phone call than Steve had imagined, and even though he’d caused their break up to save Christopher hurting, he begins to realise that he’s caused them both more pain than they could have ever imagined.

One cop. One killer. Both dreamwalkers. Not every dream should see the light of day...

Three very different people have one thing in common-a dreamscape steeped in horror. Barry has had dreams of violent death all his life, and as a cop, he now works to solve the crimes his dreams tell him about in hopes he can save at least one victim from suffering the fate he faces every time he lays his head on his pillow. His ex-lover, Tag—now his boss—has no idea how to help him cope other than to protect his job...and try to protect their hearts from the dreams that could end up killing them both.

Leyton welcomes the dream state that shows him his next victim. He's been a killer for as long as he can remember, and the land where he walks in shadow beside the horn-headed man who guides him feels more like home than the waking world. Now, in addition to seeking out those who would kill the innocent and ending their lives in his own special reign of terror, Leyton is promised a bride—someone to love him forever. It seems everything he's ever dreamed is about to come true.

Jessica just wants to get her life back after her boyfriend is murdered and she is abducted. Twice. Finding herself at Leyton's mercy is a nightmare she soon finds is only the very beginning. When the horn-headed man visits her, she knows nothing will ever be the same again.

The four of them now have to find a way to navigate the real world while the dream state dictates their very lives and threatens everything they hold dear. If they manage to catch a few killers and save a few innocent lives along the way, that will have to be their compensation for the "gifts" given by The Dreaming.
