Truth and lies. Captain Jamie Callahan knows the Metahuman Defense Force frowns on fraternization. For once in his life, he's breaking all the rules. Having Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan on his team and in his bed is worth the risk of being found out. When a mission comes down requiring Alpha Team to go undercover in order to infiltrate a criminal alliance, Jamie knows it won't be easy. Putting his family's name on the line is nothing compared to the role the MDF wants him to play-that of a billionaire's son, discharged from the military, with a lover on his arm, looking to make his own shady business deals. Dirty little secret. Kyle knows the only way to be with Jamie is to hide their relationship from their superiors. Waking up to Jamie at home is more important than being together in public, or so Kyle thought, until he comes face to face with what he's been missing. Pretending to be a couple on paper for the sake of the mission thrusts Kyle into a world of incredible wealth and a social status he's not sure he belongs in, but he'll do anything to stay by Jamie's side. Play the game to win. Surrounded by the enemy, Jamie and Kyle need to trust each other now more than ever. Their covers-and the life they're trying to build together-depend on it.

A Marine with honor. After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he's been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team-all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it's no surprise Jamie doesn't have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he's been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie's life gets complicated. A soldier with secrets. Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn't know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF's top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break. Two men trying to survive. Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can't escape-duty, or love?

Take a chance. Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin doesn't trust easily, and he most certainly doesn't trust spies. He'll work with them if ordered to, but that doesn't mean he has to like it. Except Agent Sean Delaney is proving to be the exception to the rule. There's something about Sean that gets under Alexei's skin and won't let go. Alexei would be lying if he said he wasn't interested in what lay beneath the agent's mask. When they're assigned together for a mission, Alexei vows to keep Sean safe all while trying to coax the hot agent into his bed. Hold onto hope. Agent Sean Delaney has spent his entire adult life living a lie for his country. When the MDF tasks him with finding evidence of criminal wrong-doing against the owner of a private military company, Sean knows exactly how to play the game to get what he wants. He just doesn't know how to handle Alexei's advances, nor his own attraction to the younger soldier. Being a spy is lonely work, and Sean knows he should keep his distance, but saying no to Alexei is impossible from the moment they first kiss. In a world of lies, the truth can be deadly. When the mission takes a turn for the worse, the only thing left to do is run. In the wake of betrayal, and in the path of danger, can their fragile trust survive the battle?

Marty is having a bad morning. Roused from slumber by a gang of polo mallet-wielding monkeys and a mysterious voice in his wardrobe, he must quickly come to terms with the fact that the world outside his door is now the world inside his head. Lying in wait amidst bleak, gloomy streets, deserted theme parks, and circus-themed nightclubs, lurks the oppressive shadow of a myriad of giggling, cackling pursuers, hell bent on throwing a custard pie or two into the works. Assisted by a string of half-cocked schemes, a troupe of tiny unlikely allies, and (literally) the girl of his dreams, Marty sets out on a heroic quest to wake up and get out of bed. Equal parts epic, funny and dark, The Forty First Wink plummets headlong into the realms of askew reality, adding elements of the macabre, and squeezing in an unlikely love story for good measure. It will take you on a journey where not even the sky is the limit, and literally anything could be around the next corner. The question is, do you have the guts (and the sanity) to find out?

Kyle knows in a situation like this the only way out is through. Together they can make it to the other side, but surviving that journey will take everything they have. One last chance. Agent Sean Delaney is learning what it means to be part of Alpha Team through trial by fire. He wouldn't change it for the world, nor would he give up the life he's building with Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin. But their time together is threatened by outside forces they can't outrun. Having put the nightmare of Boston behind him, Alexei is focused on keeping his family safe, but he can't have eyes on everyone. Alexei knows he can't ignore the danger on the horizon, and when it strikes, he is unprepared for the tragedy it leaves in its wake. Risking it all. The odds are stacked ever higher against Alpha Team, and outmaneuvering a precog is a daunting, almost impossible task. Jamie knows something has to give, and when it does, it just might break him the way nothing else in his life ever could.
