Facebook & Social Media

Hi all,

In the light of recent events on Facebook, i.e. accounts being suspended / deleted unless the person is using their legal name, I would like to encourage you to use other ways to connect. While my name is legally recognised by local law, I'm not sure if the powers of FB will accept it as a legal name according to their standards. Here are a few places where you can find me and connect with me:

  • If you'd like to keep track of my book releases, the simplest way to do that is by signing up to receive blog posts by email. You'll find the box to the right, sign-up is simple and you won't miss anything important
  • Twitter
  • Google+ (Google + is becoming a real alternative to Facebook. A lot of my author friends are moving there). If you have a Google+ account, just add me to your circles +Sage Marlowe 


I hope to see you around the web!

Love as always,

Sage

New Release: Roses & Thorns


When bestselling author Chester Banning requires inside information on the life of a forensic pathologist, he comes across an enticing, yet unwilling study subject in the shape of sinfully attractive Dr Nicolas Sheridan.

After a hot and slightly unsettling one-night stand, Sheridan turns out to be as inapproachable as he is intriguing and clearly not interested in intensifying their liaison. Chester, however, is already falling head over heels in love and doesn’t rest until he’s succeeded in cracking Sheridan’s icy shell. What he discovers underneath is a man well capable of love and affection but caught up in a web of lies and domestic abuse that makes him seek punishment in self-harm.

Refusing to watch Sheridan go farther down the road to self-destruction, Chester gives him all the love and support he is capable of—but then he discovers the horrifying truth about Sheridan’s past.


Reader advisory: Suitable for adult readers only. Contains scenes of and references to domestic violence / abuse, self-harm and dubious consent in a non-erotic context.

This book was previously published with the title Knives & Feathers. This edition has been re-edited and extended.

Romeo & Julian - Series


A Thief on Christmas Eve (Romeo & Julian #1)

Sometimes to catch a thief is just the beginning…

When FBI special agent Julian Harris finally corners art thief and cat burglar Romeo, he's planning to put the man first in handcuffs and then behind bars. Instead, he finds himself first trapped in a house in the mountains by a blizzard and then captivated by Romeo's irresistible charm. One thing leads to another, and after a night spent together, Julian wakes up alone with his pride bruised and his heart stolen. Almost a year later, a twist of fate brings them back together and their mutual attraction sparks up again instantly, but events take on a dynamic that could have at least one of them wind up dead. Blackmailed into a precarious break-in, Romeo has to choose between Julian's life and his own safety while all the time, there are two questions on Julian's mind. Who is this slick and sexy thief really, and where does his true loyalty lie?

Some good boys are best when they’re bad...

Some good boys are best when they’re bad—and FBI-Agent Julian Harris knows that no one is better at being bad than his lover Romeo Paris Montague. They are assigned a new case, the high-profile Houdini-Heist. It leads them to France, Romeo’s country of origin, where he is supposed to play his role as an art thief to meet a contact person.

When events take a dramatic turn, more secrets from Romeo’s mysterious past are revealed, and some of them have the potential to get them killed. At the same time, the wish for a quieter life and a blast from the past leads Romeo into a temptation that is hard to resist.

But is running away from the only safe place he’s ever known and escaping to the dark side really the solution for Romeo? Or can Julian convince him that there is another way out?

An end has a start and sometimes, it’s the beginning to something new

When the ghost from his past finally reveals himself, Romeo Montague is more determined than ever to stop his enemy once and for all, no matter what it takes. His partner, FBI agent Julian Harris, is happy to tag along for a journey that not only leads them further into Romeo’s past, but may just help him solve one of his own cases, too. Julian has his partner’s back as always, but he discovers that, as usual, Romeo only reveals parts of his plans—the parts that suit him best. Julian however doesn’t hesitate to make his own plans when necessary and reveal only the parts that suit him best.

When Romeo crosses one line too many, he and Julian have to realise that every end has a start—but for them, the end of life as they know it is also the beginning to something new.

New release: Strawberries & Cream




“The gift of love is not always an easy one to accept, but it is a gift, and it should be accepted with appreciation.”

When efficient, self-controlled business man Ross bumps into a stranger on a crowded platform one morning, he doesn’t know that Cupid has been pulling the strings. And yet, he follows the leads to flamboyant Sebastian who, for all his outward flippancy, hides a shy and sensitive soul. Despite their opposing personalities and lifestyles, they become lovers, but Ross never quite manages to overcome the one thing that keeps him from fully accepting Sebastian—and his own past.

One day, a trip leads them to a secluded hotel on the coast of Scotland. With a little help from Aengus, the hotel’s kind but mysterious owner and his liquid happiness, Ross and Sebastian make another attempt at building a bridge—a bridge they will hopefully be able to cross together, hand in hand.
