Mount Angus is a small Wisconsin town that would be boring if not for its many over-the-top holiday festivals. Kiko Cooper is a local owner of the niche egg-themed store Yolks on You. Dominic Grady is a tourist who finds himself suddenly single while on vacation. What starts with a bad break up quickly spirals into new romance, intrigue, and murder.
Neither Kiko nor Dom can resist the pull of a good mystery any more than they can resist the attraction they feel for each other. Surprising everyone in town, they make a cute couple, and a decent investigative team, too. Which is a good thing, because Mount Angus appears to have a small murder problem ...
Contains all five stories in the Yolks on You series, including:
Shell Shocked: When Dominic agreed to join his boyfriend for a weekend away at the annual Eggstravaganza in small town Wisconsin, he was expecting a boring experience. He was not expecting to discover his boyfriend had been cheating on him. He was not expecting to fall for Kiko, owner of the niche shop Yolks on You. And he certainly wasn’t expecting an exploding cow to drop him in the middle of a deadly mystery.
Egg Whites and Blue: Kiko and Dom are still getting used to each other, and with Mount Angus’ Knee High 4th of July Festival approaching, they anticipate spending quality time together, if only for a weekend. But with the arrival of Kiko’s ex and the discovery of a murdered body, they are drawn into another small-town mystery where dark secrets and a generous serving of danger could very well get them killed.
Deal with the Deviled Eggs: After a chaos-filled summer, Kiko and Dom are ready to ease into a more laid back autumn and really put in some quality time together. But with an old friend of Dom's crashing with them and causing tension and a sudden spree of murders, this could either be a Halloween for Kiko and Dom to remember, or their very last.
Egg the Halls: When local artist Cat asks Kiko and Dom to solve her vandalism problem, the two are only too happy for the distraction from holiday visitors. But when the property damage escalates to threats on Kiko's life, things get more serious than they'd hoped, and if they can't get to the bottom of the family drama fast, Kiko might never be home for the holidays again.
Eggs and Kisses: The annual Be Mount Valentine Heartstival has the whole town of Mount Angus on the lookout for relationship drama, and this year it seems everyone's most interested in whether Kiko and Dom are going to tie the knot. When a body is found rolled in a rug, though, it's up to the couple to unravel a deadly mystery before the celebration ends in more than just bruised egos and broken hearts.
EXCERPT FROM "Shell Shocked"
“I think I should thank you,” said Kiko, rubbing his damp mouth. He reached into his coat pocket for a plastic baggie, which he extended to Dom with the explanation, “For the condom. But I’ve been wanting to do that to you for too long now.”
“Like a day,” said Dom, peeling off the condom and sealing it in the baggie. As he bent to pull up his pants Kiko laughed.
“Oh, at least two.” And now he was stiff as that tree Dom was leaning against. “You mind if I slip off and take care of something?”
“The only place you’re going is back to the truck,” said Dom, straightening his jacket. “You’re driving me to your house.”
As much as that excited Kiko, he wasn’t sure he could make it that long. He was already dribbling excitement into his boxers.
“I’m not sure it can wait,” he said.
Dom bent, grabbed the box, and tossed the last five eggs Kiko hadn’t gotten to randomly between the trees, then straightened. He took Kiko’s hand.
“Truck. Now,” he said, and pulled at Kiko so that he was forced to helplessly follow. When they reached the vehicle Dom opened the driver’s door and shoved Kiko in, then moved around and got in the passenger side.
“Dom,” began Kiko, but he was leaning across now. Kiko met Dom’s lips with his own; the man’s kiss was hard, demanding. Kiko strained against the confines of his own pants, wondered how he was going to tolerate this. He pulled back somewhat. “Look, if you --”
He gasped as Dom placed his hand directly on his stiff bulge, very nearly going off right then.
“I can’t drive you home like this,” he hissed.
“It’s my turn to drive,” said Dom, leaning close to Kiko’s ear. “And I just so happen to know how to drive stick.” He punctuated that with another tantalizing push against Kiko’s pants. As Kiko leaned back, trying to steady his breathing, Dom slid his hand between his pants and boxers, gripping him and causing Kiko to nearly lose it.
“I can’t -- Dom, I really can’t last,” he said. Not after having seen Dom’s expression as he came. Not with how very nearly there he already was.
“Good,” said Dom, and covered Kiko’s mouth with his own.
Kiko struggled to last more than a few stokes, pressed back against the seat with Dom’s mouth against his own, his blood pounding so hard in his veins he couldn’t hear a thing. Very abruptly Dom let up pressure, disengaged his lips, turned. Kiko looked desperately at him, but his attention was focused outside the truck.
“Dom,” he hissed.
“It’s the person from last night,” said Dom, twisting around. Kiko gritted his teeth.
“I don’t care,” he snapped, grabbing Dom’s wrist to help him back into the rhythm. “Leave me like this and you’re never coming home with me again.”
