Moving Toward the Light by Rick R. Reed

OUT NOW! Moving Toward the Light by Rick R. Reed

Sequel to Penance

Miranda had been through it all in her young life: homelessness, the victim of a crime that made national headlines, and losing those closest to her. Now, she barely gets by in a rat hole apartment in uptown Chicago, drowning her sorrows in alcohol she’s too young to buy, and making ends meet by turning tricks.

And, just when she thinks it can get no worse, it does. With the lure of easy cash before her, she blows off her shift at McDonald’s and heads home with an older guy she met in a bar. But when she gets there, she finds the guy has a party all set to go, when what Miranda had in mind was one-on-one. After a brutal assault and rape, Miranda winds up in the hospital, clinging to life.

In the half world between life and death, she finds Jimmy Fels, her dearest love, the boy who had died years before to save her. His appearance is enigmatic, but comforting and Miranda is just beginning to discover that he has returned to avenge her.

The men will pay. And Miranda finds, through her connection with a long-lost love, that vengeance is truly sweet.

Obsessed by Rick R. Reed

OUT NOW! Obsessed by Rick R. Reed

I kill, therefore I am …

Voices slam through the corridor of his wounded mind. The words of his dead sister cry out. His parents’ taunts fill the silent room where he sits and waits — waits for the murderous rage, filling him with strength, driving him to kill, to touch the cold flesh, taste the warm blood — to feel alive again …

A witness has seen him, but his killing only turns her on and now she wants to protect him. His wife suspects him, but the private detective she hired cannot stop him. Joe MacAree fears nothing — except that he may no longer be human. The thirst that drives him is relentless, moving deeper and deeper into his own shattering, private realm, where each murder is a delicious new gift of life, where revulsion is beauty, and the obsession will never let him go.

“A harrowing ride through cutting-edge psychological horror, this one’s got a vicious bite. Rick R. Reed’s Obsessed is a twisted nightmare.” — Douglas Clegg, bestselling author

Tortilla Pie by Rick R. Reed

OUT NOW! Tortilla Pie by Rick R. Reed

When Anderson, homeless on the streets of Seattle, first spies Josh, a volunteer at TeenCare, he immediately falls for him, even though TeenCare forbids client/volunteer interaction. Anderson thinks: “And speaking of noticed, I think I was, just a few minutes ago. One of the volunteers was coming by and we locked eyes. You know, the way two guys do. Two gay guys, anyway, who like what they see. It’s not like a casual glance — those only last for a second or maybe two at the most — but when two gay dudes notice each other, man, that eye-to-eye lingers. You know what I’m sayin’?

“And that boy? He was fine. Or to roll back to one of my mama’s expressions from back in her day — he was fly.”

In spite of the youth center’s policy of volunteers and clients interacting beyond the most superficial ways, will love discover a way around the policy, so Josh and Anderson can be together?
