This seven-book series follows a young new Second Lieutenant who is fresh out of officer training with the Army Regiment of Shifters, or ShiftARS for short.

Harlow never planned to join the military, but when the Army Regiment of Shifters saved his life, joining them seemed the right thing to do. Although technically a shifter, he does not shift like most, shifting for him comes at a sacrifice. He is unique, and not necessarily in a good way.

He watched as the other recruits on his officer training course shifted, their bodies changing from human to beast. So many beasts, so much freedom to be themselves. Harlow watched them enviously, but some secrets must be kept at all costs.

Fortunately, he scored top of his class in every subject that didn't involve shifting, so he earned himself a passing grade. Now with graduation complete, and a new promotion, Harlow is ready for whatever comes next. Or at least he thought he was.

The Army Regiment of Shifters have plans for this very unique soldier and a series of well-timed events result in Harlow meeting his fated mates. Riley, Beckett and Troy, a sharp team with over one hundred years military experience, soon learn there is more to Harlow than meets the eye. Dealing with loss and secrets leads to a rocky start in their relationship, but the shifters' mate bonds are stronger.

When they finally discover Harlow's shift form is more than the demented eagle he says, and that his eyeball eating habits are real, and gross, they are drawn into Harlow’s world of mystery, betrayal and lies. Trusting fate has them protecting Harlow from the world around him and also from himself.

When Harlow’s secrets start to come out, it becomes obvious that there is more to this young soldier than even he knows. With his mates at his side it's time to find out just what makes him so special. Once they begin, ready or not, the truth will be revealed.

There is so much more to Harlow than any of them could ever imagine. Life as they knew it will never be the same.

Book 1: Phoenix Rise

My name is Harlow, I'm 23 and I've just graduated from officer training with a shiny new title, Second Lieutenant. Now it's time I get my posting assignment and start my new life with a ShiftARS unit.

Unfortunately for me, meeting my new team and arriving at my new base went a little sideways. Don't worry though, I have everything under control now. Except that's a lie. My rank may be higher than the three guys on my team, but never has anything been more obvious than my lack of experience compared to them. They treat me like a newbie, a rookie, not their commanding officer. Then there's the fact that the three of them are gay and lovers, so the team dynamics are off. Is it odd if I notice how these guys look at me like a conquest and want to welcome me in? They are huge men with solid muscle and tower at least 6 inches above me. Despite coming top of my class in fitness, martial arts, and target shooting, to them my 5'10 frame makes me seem like a delicate flower. They think I'm straight, I think I'm straight, so I won't tell them I've been tempted by their perfect bodies. Just like I won't tell them everything about my shift beast. Honestly, their eyeballs should thank me.

But sometimes secrets are not meant to be kept. The good, the bad, the ugly and the crazy is all at risk of coming out. What can I do when these guys so easily peel away my layers until they reveal my broken core? Will they ever be able to look at me again? And when the ruler of the criminal underworld comes calling, will any of it matter anyway?

This is a full-length M/MMM harem novel suitable for those over 18 due to sexual content. There are scenes that some may consider cheating, though the status of the relationship is questionable.

This book ends on a cliff-hanger, but don’t worry, you can get your teeth straight into book 2 now

My Phoenix is out, along with my visions. I’ve been sent into hiding, but everything about this feels wrong. Maybe I’m just out of my depth? My mates may be with me but I feel like I'm losing my connection with the world. This isn't real. Not only am I plagued by doubt, I'm also hounded by visions from my phoenix, sitting on her waterfall. My rank means I lead my team but when my lieutenant bars come off, these men own me body and soul, and they are as hard to ignore as the damn bird.

When the truth comes out, turns out I was right, but I'm not sure I have enough sanity left to come back from this. Not when every repressed memory is thrown back at me. There is a damn good reason why I shut my past out.

Will my mates stick with me through it all, or am I destined to mess up the only good thing that ever happened to me?

Book 3: Phoenix Fall

This is the second edition of book three in the Phoenix shiftARS series.

I once heard someone say the phrase "let sleeping dogs lie." I'm not sure that I ever truly understood it before. The key word in that sentence is "before" as I now have a much better understanding of it.

After the disaster of my first posting, and ending up back where I started, everything begins to fall apart. Realising I was never meant to join my mates, and shifting into something new, leaves me not sleeping well. I’m having nightmares as my past bombards me with forgotten and repressed memories.

Wrath, Rage and Ruin.

Somehow I have to get them back in the box, somewhere they have been shut away for far too long and now that they are out, they are in no hurry to go back.

Why can things never be easy?

How much more can I take before I just let go?

This is a full length M/MMM harem novel suitable for those over 18 due to the sexual content.

Book 4: Dragon's Woe

My mates are the only people I can trust. Even my grandfather has to earn the loyalty he wants. But he’s right about us needing to get away from it all, some familiar faces from my mates' past give us a place to lay low and regroup. Yet our group has never been more divided. Hopefully a nice holiday in the snowy alps is just what the doctor ordered.

Nope. The doctor ordered a heavy dose of anti-psychotics, and with the voices getting louder, I need to decide if I want to silence them.


I was dead. Not near death, or gone for a few minutes. I died. I was buried. There was a funeral and everyone came. My mates mourned me.

Then the darkness of nothing lifted and now I'm back.

But I've changed; my mates have changed. And I've just met the most amazing person. Harlow is a blast from the past and a missing piece in my life. But... he is part of something huge, and, I'm not sure if anyone realises, but this young man is insane.

Utterly round the bend, bonkers, fell down the rabbit hole kind of crazy. But my heart say sign me up anyway.


It’s Christmas, and my mates want to show me that this time of year can be fun. My experiences have been less than convincing so far and I’d rather forget the whole thing. A couple of visitors from my mates past soon become welcome friends in an increasingly difficult world. My voices are getting harder to hide. I think I’m going crazy. You know what they say; crazy attracts crazy. I just wasn’t expecting it to be in the form of the Krampus.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and only one thing can save this from becoming another year of disappointment. One little red box that’s always under the tree. No matter where I am or what I’m doing, that one small, unlabelled present is my only constant.

Book 5: Kelpie's Ruin


I’ve lost my hippo shift beast, and part of my body that makes me who I am, my tattoos. As much as I’m looking forward to a fresh start, some of us are dragging too much baggage with us. Whatever happened in Harlow’s past, isn’t going to leave us alone, no matter where we go. I need to focus on who I am. How much of the old Thomas Beckett am I, and will I ever regain my ability to shift after Harlow saved me?


We need answers. They are all there, in our pasts, we just need to find them. Just because my past spans less years, doesn't mean there is less there to find. But I buried my issues deep in my messed up sub-conscience. A trip to the prophet from my mates' past is dangerously close to my own. We could kill two birds with one stone here. Is that the right phrase? All I know is people are going to die, and memories are going to rise.

Book 6: Gryphon's Rage


Harlow is missing, and Pletcher won't let the four of us, his own mates, in on the search. All they know is that James Harvey doesn't know where his son is. Well screw Pletcher and the ShiftARS. It's time we walk away from everything we ever knew. Harlow needs us and his safe return is the only thing that matters, he is all that matters. We will find him, and we will devote the rest of our lives to our crazy amazing mate. Hold on Harlow, we're coming for you.


Death is supposed to be a rest. Well, I'll tell you, they are lying.

The phrase 'live while I'm alive and sleep when I'm dead' doesn't apply to me.

I'm dead, and for some reason, that means trekking up the side of a mountain to find my beasts.

I'll make my own phrase then. Sex when I'm alive. Epic journey of discovery when I'm dead. And sleep when hell freezes over.

Or when I burn the world.

Instead a stranger at the door threatens to expose everything we have.

Our happy ever after has never felt so close and yet seemed so far away.


A nice house with my family, out in the middle of nowhere, no one to bother us.

That was what I dreamt of as a child.

Now I have my mates, we have the house. We're in the middle of nowhere.

People need to stop bothering us.

Stopping my dad is the only way to make that happen.

Easier said than done. I have a feeling things are going to get worse before they get better.

Oh, and now my mum is gone, so is the waterfall.

Dying just got a HELL of a lot more complicated.
