Today author is Hank Edwards: Hank Edwards has been called "silly" and "irreverent" and "a dirty old man," and all of these descriptions are true. He was born and still lives in a northwest suburb of Detroit, MI, and has been fortunate enough to see a number of novels published, including the Charlie Heggensford series of funny sexed up adventures available from Lethe Press: "Fluffers, Inc.," "Carnal Cruise," and Lambda Literary Finalist "Vancouver Nights." Another five books are available from Loose Id, LLC, including the suspense novella "Holed Up," and sequels "Shacked Up" and "Roughed Up," the medieval time-travel romance "Destiny's Bastard," and the contemporary romantic comedy "Plus Ones." His self-published novels, "Bounty" and "Bait," the first books in the Venom Valley Series, a gay romance, vampire/zombie mash up set in the American Old West, have been acquired by a newly established publisher and will be re-released with new titles and covers in 2013.

FBI Special Agent Aaron Pearce and his lover Mark Beecher are taking a well-deserved vacation relaxing on the beaches of Barbados Island. They spend lazy days in the sun, on scooters seeing the sites, or in their room making love.
When Mark sees a young girl in a bar who may be in danger, he begins an informal investigation into her situation, even as Pearce reminds him they are not citizens and have no legal power on the island. Mark is determined, however, and, while investigating on his own, is taken captive by a sex slavery ring.
Pearce panics when Mark goes missing. He has a good idea what happened to Mark and who has taken him, but he cannot prove it. While working with the Barbados Royal Police Force, Pearce realizes he has become the detective's prime suspect, and understands he needs to conduct his own personal investigation if he has any chance of finding Mark before his lover either sold into sex slavery or murdered.
