Through ten wonderful years Griff Diamond and Clint Bishop weathered good times and bad together. Lately they haven’t spent as much time together as they’d like, and their physical relationship is suffering. Then Clint loses his job at the steel mill. Instead of worrying, he sees it as an opportunity to lean on his steady partner, start his writing career, and rekindle the passion they’ve lost.
But a friendly relationship with another author turns to obsession, putting Clint’s life in danger. Taken against his will to the Jewel Cave system in South Dakota, Clint must rely on the skills he’s learned from Griff to survive.
Fearing the worst, Griff tracks Clint across the country. As a US Marshall, Griff’s always been the man who keeps everyone safe, but he doesn’t know how he and Clint will survive this.
Categories: Contemporary, Crime Fiction, Gay Fiction, Mystery, Romance
Clint nearly jumped out of his skin when someone’s strong arm snaked around his waist and pulled him back against a firm body. Warm breath blew in his ear along with the words, “You left the door unlocked again. I could be the neighborhood whack job here to bludgeon you to death after defiling you.”
“You scared the crap out of me!” Clint yelped, trying to squirm away, but it was useless. “You’re the guy on this street with all the big guns.” Behind him Griff chuckled and used one finger to move Clint’s hair away from his neck. He pressed a soft kiss to the spot. Clint glared down at the dogs. “And you two! You need watchdog lessons.”
Griff let go of Clint, turned him, and shook him by the shoulders for a second. “Lock the goddamn doors. Even if someone smashes through the storm door, you’ll at least hear them.” He raised his eyebrows and leaned away from Clint, letting him go. “For me. Please.”
“What you really don’t want is some moron busting up the storm door since you’d have to help me replace it,” Clint muttered.
Griff pointed up. “Hey, I happen to have a deep appreciation for that door. Notice I’m tactfully not mentioning how delightful you are when you work on a construction project?” Clint burst out laughing. Griff’s blue-gray eyes twinkled, and the corners crinkled in the way Clint loved when Griff smiled. “Sorry I’m late,” Griff said, leaning down to pet the dogs.
Whenever I get asked this question I really don't have to give much thought to the answer. I like men, their relationships with one another have always fascinated me. Men really do come at life from a different angle than women and I love exploring every little aspect. In general men tend more toward actions than words. Being able to take a couple of guys and look how they affect one another and love one another is delightful.
How do you come up with your titles?
I don't really know. Most of the time the title is something that just comes to me and feels right. In the case of Jewel Cave it's named after a real place that plays an important part in the story.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I tend to like action (in the bed and out) packed books. Mysteries, scifi and urban fantasy commonly have a lot of adventure in their plots, so I prefer those genres.
Favorite subject in school? Why?
Any of the science classes. I liked learning how the universe around us works.
Besides a writer, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Being a writer was what I've always wanted to do professionally. My other goal when I was younger was to do something that allowed me to work with horses and dogs. I'm a veterinary nurse and have had positions caring for and training horses.

Clint and Griff have been together for 10 years. They haven't all been great. They have had their ups and downs, but are in a loving and committed relationship.
Griff is a US Marshall, Clint worked at a Steel Mill for years, but when he loses his job, Griff encourages him to try his had at writing. Clint makes a good career out of it, but one of his fellow authors is a little too obsessed with Clint, and kidnaps him. Griff, along with his team of co-workers have to scour for clues to find him. Will having a boyfriend that's a US Marshall help Clint? Can he apply everything he has learned to keep himself alive until Griff can get to him?
This was an excellent written book. Very Criminal Minds like(one of my favorite shows). It was exciting and action packed. I loved watching Griff solve the mystery. I also loved that Ms. Noble handled the aftermath of the kidnapping in such a realistic fashion.
I highly recommend this book. It had mystery, suspense, and even a steamy love scene. This book was well written, it flowed well and moved at an excellent pace. This is my first book by this author, but I'll definitely be looking at more!
About The Author:Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.
Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess named Rosie, and two cats, Murphy and Yeti. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter and summer sports (go Tribe!). When she's not writing she's working as a veterinary nurse, so don't be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.
Two of Elizabeth's books have received Honorable Mentions in the Rainbow Awards.
