Everyone should be safe in a liberal country like Sweden.
But, Peter Andreasson, a police officer with the Gothenburg Police, knows that isn’t always the case. The day he walks into the hospital emergency room and meets a badly beaten woman, Ayla Aydin, he is heartbroken but drawn to her strength.
Ayla knows who she is.
She’s proud of the person she has become.
It’s her third generation Swedish family that cannot accept her transformation from male to female and she is not prepared for what comes next. She has dishonoured them, and for this, she must pay the ultimate price.
When two cultures collide, Ayla’s life is put at risk, will she run or stay and fight? Will she escape their wrath even with Peter by her side?

Scarred has set the standard for the Interracial Transgender genre! Your favourite bestselling author has done it again. Scarred, by Mia Kerick is a compelling page turner. It will take you down the dark and narrow street into a place where only the strongest survive. Scarred won’t let you come up for air until you’ve read the last page, and then it will linger in your brain for a long, long time. It is an important book. It does for Interracial Transgender novels, what Patricia Nel Warren did for Gay Fiction in general – it has set the standard.
In Scarred, Matthew North has waited ten years to heal from the devastating wounds inflicted by the man who abducted and abused him as a child. Living reclusively on a tropical island—with no company but his four cats—he merely avoids the lingering pain.
Wearing twisted ropes of mutilated skin on his back, Matt struggles with a profound hindrance—the scars that deaden his soul. However, on the night he meets lively Vedie Wilson, a local restaurant busboy who expresses his gender by wearing lip-gloss and eyeliner along with his three-day beard, things change.
Gradually, Vedie and Matt unite in friendship. Through a series of awkward encounters, the pair learns each other’s secrets. Vedie learns that an angelic face can front for a scarred soul. Matthew learns that the line between one’s masculine and feminine sides is blurred.
Can they embrace the painful stories behind each other’s scars if they’re to find everlasting love?
Or will surrendered love come to be yet another blemish on their souls?

A CoolDudes Publishing Gay Romance.
They could hardly have been less alike. David is a wannabe fiction writer. 21 and a virgin with an ice-melting smile. Wyatt is as plain as paper, a celebrated oil painter. He is single and he is out. But, he is a lonely man seeking the comfort and love he so desperately needs.
The day they arrive on Puffin Island, little do they realize how much their lives are about to change.
The bond between David and Wyatt increases. But, David’s heart struggles with his imbedded childhood dogma and lethally homophobic parents. Eventually, he is propelled to establish an unthinkable bond of love with Wyatt. When destiny intervenes, and Wyatt is once more left alone, he turns to the most unlikeliest of characters to fill the void, a person who will teach him an important lesson; that love is all about choice, and it has always been within touching distance.
But what of David? Will he watch from afar? Will he approve of Wyatt’s choice? Or will he come between them and make it impossible for Wyatt to ever love again?

has been writing for decades. He is a businessman and journalist by trade, a man up at 3:45 every weekday morning for a stint on the news desk; a little earlier on weekends to write fiction in his man cave.
An upstate New Yorker by birth, he now lives in the most rural area of far Maine, USA, on 54-acres of land: wooded, lawns, driveways, and a few buildings including his four thousand square foot home which he calls the white house; because it is.
His property is home to moose, deer, rabbits, raccoons, porcupines, fox, weasels, black bears, and one Bard owl. He loves reading gay romances among other forms of fiction; non-fiction; and memoirs most of which he considers to be fictional. Traveling, dining out, boat riding are among his passions; that and flying his own single engine airplane when he was younger.
Message from CoolDudes Publishing CEO:
When I first read The Island Keepers, I fell in love with the leviathan scope of the novel. It took me to places I have never been. It enthralled me. Blew me away. The book has been five years in the making and during that time it has been through several edits. Without giving too much away, you have my assurance that the characters and the Island itself will leave you with a lingering sense of joy, and above all, Hope. There is such a thing as True Love.
