Welcome to the landing page for my mystery/romance series with a wicked edge, the Daddy P.I. Casefiles.
Negotiation: Daddy P.I. Book 0.5
A first date like no other – dinner and a tawse!
Private investigator James Logan is a man on a mission: to find a submissive who can be his cover on an upcoming investigation. Barred from his usual hunting grounds by a predatory ex, Logan heads to the Salt City kink expo.
Little submissive Emily Martin is no stranger to the lifestyle. She’s had her fill of emotionally unavailable Masters and see-you-later sadists. Her display at the expo makes it clear from the start: she wants a real Daddy Dom, but permanent attachments are off the table.
Logan and Emily have an immediate connection, but with such different agendas, do they have any hope of a future? The only way to find out is an audition, and Logan knows just where to hold it: at his exclusive NYC club. Armed with his favorite tawse, Logan takes Emily over his knee to see if the baby girl can stand up to his brand of dominance. Emily immediately realises that Logan is no “weekend Dom.” But he’s never been a daddy before. Can Logan become the daddy she’s been looking for?
Here’s an excerpt:
I pull her a little closer as a tangle of bodies careens around the corner.
It’s the hounds: six men stripped down to their kecks, skins oiled, ankles chained together, running on all fours, unpracticed, uncoordinated, skidding and slipping on the smooth parquet floor. One of them loses his balance and crashes into the corner a few feet from where Emily’s standing. I shift her out of the way as he scrambles up, only to be flattened to the floor again by the crack of a horse-whip across his shoulders.
“Ow, fuck!” The whipped hound yells. “That’s not the way this is supposed to go! I thought I was going to get to do the whipping!”
“You thought wrong,” Ryan says, stalking smoothly around the corner on polished black boots. “I might let you give our fox a little spanking, if you ever manage to catch her.” Ryan catches sight of me and grins. “Master Logan, are you joining the hunt?”
“Master Ryan,” I acknowledge. “Not tonight. Just watching. This is my date, Emily. Emily, this is Master Ryan.”

And a Daddy Dom to the rescue.
After Emily passes Logan’s audition with flying colors (and a colorful behind), Logan and Emily head west for sun, sand, and spanking. A passenger has died under suspicious circumstances on the kinky, Mexican Sunset cruise. The cruise line has just two weeks to determine the cause of death and hires Logan to be their man on the inside.
With Emily as his cover, Logan races to find the culprit. When he catches up to the killer, and the chase turns lethal, Emily must call on every ounce of courage to save her daddy.
But will she be a Little too late?
Here’s an excerpt from the first chapter:
Widows are the worst part of my job.
Worse than the pain in a client’s eyes when I tell them it’s a family member who has fucked them over. Worse than the three times I’ve been shot at. It’s the uncomprehending grief of the recently widowed that always threatens to rip the heart out of my chest. Their loved one was there yesterday, or two days ago, or ten. Now they’re not. It makes no sense. After being there for years, sometimes decades, the person is simply gone, and the widower has to keep on living as though their world hasn’t just dived headfirst into an empty concrete pool.
Regina Black, or “Reggie” as she asks me to call her, is the same as every other widow I’ve met. She looks hollowed out by grief. Scoured by it. She’s still tan and put-together in a dark brown linen skirt suit. She goes through the motions of being okay. But it’s there in her empty eyes, the pallor under her tan.
I want to hug her. Stroke her artfully tousled bottle-blonde hair. The way I would comfort my babydoll, or any bottom who came to me hurting and needy.
But Reggie Black’s a stranger, a stranger who is threatening a lawsuit against my client. So instead, I shake her hand and show her to the circular couch in the suite the cruise line has booked for me at the M Hollywood Hotel. I offer her bottled water, which she takes and sips with a trembling hand.

Daddy P.I. 2.0
(Book 2 of the Daddy P.I. Casefiles)
A movie star.
And a Daddy Dom to the rescue.
Back in NYC, Logan’s client, Rick Errol, has been accused of rape after a scene gone very wrong. Rick wants Emily kept out of the investigation but can Logan hope to solve the case without his insightful sub?
When Rick’s troubles escalate and an online flame-war turns into a deadly stalking, Logan must catch the stalker before a drunken mistake costs Rick not just his liberty, but his life.
Here’s an excerpt:
Rick’s got the penthouse of a low-rise apartment block in Murray Hill. With the glass lobby on the ground floor and the concrete tower above it, the building looks top-heavy. I think the architectural style is called “brutalist,” and if it’s not, it should be because the squat gray-white building is brutally fucking ugly.
At the moment, the setting fits my mood. Miranda’s impending arrival feels like a doomsday count-down if there ever was one. And I told Rick that stalkers escalate; he didn’t want to hear it. He knows our security procedures and he broke them. He’ll be lucky if he wasn’t exposed to something. Acids, contact poisons, nerve agents. Plenty of harmful crap can be sent through the post, and even more via courier. Sure, most of what can really hurt you is hard for the average civilian to get their hands on, but fucking pool chlorinator can cause serious burns, as I know from experience. Rick makes his living off his face and he stuck it in front of a suspicious package like we’ve never had the “don’t open something that hasn’t been vetted by security” talk.
He’ll be lucky if I don’t lock him his own damn safe room with just Manny for company until I find this stalker.
Focusing on Emily keeps me calm through the taxi ride and on the way up to Rick’s apartment. She doesn’t need either the concentrated attention or the rules I’m heaping on her. Despite Pence’s bullying last night, Caddy’s kink-shaming this morning, and Miranda arriving in a few hours, she seems relaxed. She’s dealing with everything far better than I am.
While we’re waiting for the elevator, I put her in High Protocol. She’ll stay on her feet until we’re inside Rick’s apartment. Once we’re inside, she’ll be on her knees. Neither Manny nor Rick have seen her in High Protocol before. Manny won’t twitch. I’ve never once seen the guy seriously lose his cool, not even during the unplanned home-birth of his second kid, which is why I trust him so much. But I’ll have to keep a close eye on Rick to make sure he doesn’t say or do anything to humiliate Emily.
Ironic that of the two of them, the one I have to watch is the damn Dom.

A bad tattoo.
And a Forever-Dom to the rescue.
After a lifetime serving his country, Logan’s former commanding officer, Mike “Mac” McNally, is trying to adjust to civilian life. Adrift and despairing of rebuilding his relationship with his estranged daughter, Mac accepts Logan’s offer of a couch to crash on.
But Logan’s not going to let his best mate and kinky mentor wallow for long. Logan draws Mac not just into the investigation of a series of thefts, but also into the steamy nightlife of Logan’s kink club, Blunts.
As a Blunts house submissive, Brenna “DirtyGurl” Truelove has known plenty of Doms. They only ever want her wild-child side. When she needs a Dom for something serious, they run back to the dungeon. And DirtyGurl has a very serious problem: Missing Ink, the business she’s put her heart and soul into, is being destroyed by a mysterious rival. When her safety is threatened, she turns to Logan and Mac.
Can Mac convince DirtyGurl to give a Dom a second chance, while catching the thief before Missing Ink has to close its doors?
Here’s an excerpt:
“I’m guessing from the name, and the outfit, that you’re part of Logan and Theo’s club,” Mac says as he cuts into his short stack of pancakes. He pours maple syrup around the edge of his plate, dips the forkful in the puddle, and pops the bite into his mouth. His smile as he chews sends another flutter through me.
“Yes, sir. I’m one of the house submissives.”
He probably could have guessed that just from my day-collar, which I’m wearing along with one of Logan’s t-shirts, since Emily was right about the no-clothes-in-the-house-for-submissives rule. Logan’s let me wear a shirt while I’m cooking and eating, but the rest of the time, I’ve been running around naked. Which I don’t even do at home.
It’s kind of freeing.
“Do I have to be a member to do a scene with you?”
“No, sir. I do scenes with guests.”
“Could I interest you in a scene tonight?”
“She’s busy,” Theo interjects.
“Because we’re watching the X-Men movies tonight,” Emily says.
Very sure I didn’t promise that. “We are?”
“You said you’d stay the weekend. Sunday night is X-Men night.”
“You invited me for the weekend. I didn’t say I’d stay.”
Emily turns to Logan and bats her eyes. “Can’t you make her stay, Daddy?”
Logan covers his mouth with his hand and I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s hiding a smile. “If DirtyGurl doesn’t have to work tonight, then I’ll encourage her to stay another night. Outside of scenes, we don’t force other people to do things they don’t want to do, do we, baby?”
She screws up her face and peers at him. “Don’t we? Even if it’s for their own good?”
“No, little girl. There has to be consent, always.”
He chuckles and drops his hand. “What are you like, little girl?”
I reach over and take Emily’s hand. “She’s like a really good friend. Sorry.” I look at both Theo and Mac. “I’m busy tonight.” And then my tongue does something my brain definitely didn’t tell it to do. “But I’ll take a rain-check.”
Fuck, I did not just say that.
Mac salutes me with a forkful of pancake. “I’ll hold you to that.”
“Me, too,” Theo says.

(A Novel of the Daddy P.I. World)
A scared little.
And an Alpha Daddy to the rescue.
Max Bateman desperately wants what his best friend and business partner, Logan, has in abundance: the love of a good little. But reclusive, IT guru Max has never even tried his hand at dominance. Is he ready to shoulder the responsibilities of being a daddy?
Cynthia Kwan is drowning under the weight of her family’s expectations. Engaged to the son of her father’s business associate, she’s given up marrying for love. Working in the family medical illustration business, she’s abandoned her dreams of illustrating children’s books. But when a saboteur undermines her position not just in the company but with her beloved parents, Cynnie is a little at the breaking point.
Can Max rise to the challenges of being Cynnie’s daddy in time to save both her and her family business?
Here’s an excerpt:
She looks like a golden rose with the color in her cheeks. I want to touch her skin so badly, feel with my fingertips whether her cheeks are as soft and heated as they look, as soft and warm as a rose in the sun. I plunge my hands in to the dough to keep from reaching to her.
She lowers her eyes to the bowl and her lower lip trembles. Is she embarrassed? Over such a tiny slip? She should hear some of my conversational gaffes.
“It’s nice to meet you, Cynnie,” I say gently. “What kind of pizza are you making?”
“Cinnamon,” she murmurs in a tiny voice.
Cinnamon pizza sounds disgusting; I will eat cinnamon pizza all day if it makes her smile.
“Cinnamon is my favorite,” I tell her. “Do you like it with pepperoni?”
I’m going to need a defibrillator in a minute here. I pull at the collar of my shirt, realizing too late that I have flour all over my hands. The white handprint on my black T-shirt makes her giggle again
