Series In Progress
The novels of the Tarragon series are yaoi fantasy novels about two young men struggling to find their place in a world where ancient ritual and modern technology collide and dragons have been spotted in the shadows of the mountain behind the football field.
Tarragon Academy is a college at the foot of a smoldering volcano surrounded in mist and mystery. Graduates of the college are virtually guaranteed success in any field they pursue, but the first year exam can be a real killer.
First-year student Jamie Wendell made it into the college, but is having a hard time adapting to the teachers and other students until he meets an upperclassman named Scott. Will Scott help him thrive in his new school, or does Scott have his own reasons for helping the beautiful young freshman?
Jamie Wendell has successfully navigated the first year exam and emerged with a queen dragon, but he is finding that having the most powerful dragon on campus has made him a target for Tarragon Council. The council seeks to make him submit to their authority, but Jamie isn’t about to submit to anyone except his boyfriend, Scott, who has been taken from him by the council’s command.
With Jamie and the council at odds, other dragons and partners from across the country arrive to participate in what is becoming a dangerous power struggle that threatens the lives of more than just the people involved as the council’s full power is revealed. Will Jamie be able to control the council and negotiate new leadership, or will the council’s longstanding power be maintained?
In Tarragon War, Jamie has successfully hatched and bonded to a Queen dragon and survived his first summer with her by escaping with his boyfriend Scott into the hatching grounds, spending carefree days with nothing but his lover and recruiting for the upcoming war to fill his time. But the school year is starting again and Jamie and Scott must return to campus, where Ashton, the leader of the council who is determined to make Jamie his and the man they will be fighting against in the war, has complete authority over everyone and everything.
The school year is made more complex when Scott’s former lover Derek shows up and vies for Scott’s attentions, and Scott feels compelled to be kind to the man despite Jamie’s jealousy. Political and personal complications surround Jamie and his Queen dragon and war seems on the verge of breaking out. But the outcome is uncertain and there are no guarantees that victory will end the corruption they are fighting, since the entire society seems steeped in bloodshed and unnecessary sacrifice. Will Jamie and Scott be successful and put an end to Ashton and his minions, or does Ashton’s power extend beyond their wildest dreams?
In Tarragon Shadows, the villain Ashton has been killed and the campus is freed from his influence – or is it? His death has unlocked a powerful man known as the Elder who seeks revenge for Ashton’s death and has his sights set on Jamie, partnered to a Queen dragon and in command of Tarragon Academy.
But there is a new school now, and it is ruled by Ashton’s son, Derek, who finds himself teetering on the brink of becoming another villain or choosing his own path. Either way, he is determined to claim Jamie’s boyfriend as his own and the Elder may offer a way to ensure this. Will Derek follow in Ashton’s footsteps, or will he stay true to himself and find his own solutions to the problems he faces?
In Tarragon Desires, the Elder has firmly established himself in the new campus and life has settled into a new kind of normal, but just under the surface emotions are seething and revenge is being planned in any number of hidden corners.
As Jamie and Derek try to keep their respective campuses under control and avoid a war between them, they increasingly begin to find themselves divided when they should be united, and only Scott and a few select individuals have the chance to unite the two Queens again. Will the Queens be united and Tarragon society preserved, or will their differences be too great to overcome?
Tarragon World follows Jamie and Scott as they unravel the mysteries of how Tarragon society gains its power. Forced to rely on enemies for help and unable to turn to their allies, they must confront centuries of bloodshed as they struggle to fight for their own lives and the lives of those they love. The outside world threatens the safety of Tarragon society across the globe as uncontrolled greed and lust undermine the stability of their way of life.
Will Jamie be able to keep the Tarragon world united, or will they splinter forever as their only way of avoiding discovery? And of those seeming to help him in his quest, who are sincere and who are waiting for their chance to betray him?
