Chaos reigns in The Sleepless City, and it’s really beginning to piss Detective Jonas Forge off. He’s got inner demons to battle and a life to build with his new soul mate, Blair Turner. Nothing is going right, and he already feels the universe is conspiring against him when a turn of events he never saw coming flips his world upside down.
Hallucinations grip the town and everyone in it, threatening to tear their precariously built family apart, and the only way forward is to bare all to each other. This means Declan and Blair need to learn to accept one another. Lucas Coate has to move forward without ties to his werewolf pack and live a monogamous life with Declan.
But while Forge and Declan confront horrors from their shared past, Simon learns a terrible truth about vampires—one he couldn’t have imagined in his worst nightmares.

1. Tell us three things about yourself that are not in you author bio.
I taught one of my horses to respond to a dog whistle for a psychology class. I love mornings as long as I don't have to be anywhere at a certain time. Big, plumy tails on dogs are the best!

2. Anyone can buy the rights to name a star. What would you name a star bought for you?
As it happens a few years back my children bought me a star for Mother's Day. It's name is Laura. 

3. Do you buy a book because of the cover, the blurb, or some other reason?

Covers and blurbs are good draws but what I do when purchasing a book is open it up and read some of it. If I like the writing style and something on a page or two that I read sparks my interest, then I buy it. 

4. If you could go anywhere, all expenses paid, where would you go?
I think Alaska 

5. List three books you have recently read and would recommend.
The Wool Trilogy by Hugh Howey (cheating I know). 

6. What bores you in a book?
Plots without challenges. I don't like things to be too easily fixed and I do want them explained. 

7. What do you always order in a favorite restaurant?
I love a good burger! 

8. What do you hope to accomplish in the next 12 months?
Career wise I plan to have a book submitted every four months. Next year two of those books will move away from romance and more into LGBT mainstream. Personally I'm hoping to have more time with my family and friends. 

9. What does the word "romantic" mean to you?
Working through the day to day challenges of sharing your life with another person. 

10. What is the most satisfying thing about being a writer?
I love doing research and always learn something new. Taking that research and spinning it into a story is extremely satisfying. 

“What happened?” Blair asked. He turned his head toward the back door. A second later Moose was running to the back of the house.
Jonas strode in, jerked his jacket off, and tossed it down beside Ben’s helmet, muttering as he went. He stopped and faced them. “Those fools have decided I must be head detective.”
Lucas came to a stop behind Jonas, grinning.
“Wait, you’ve been pissed off all day because you got a promotion?” Blair asked.
Ben lunged forward and threw his arms around Jonas’s neck. “Sweet as! We have to celebrate. It’s about time they recognized you like this. I think it’s crappy you haven’t been promoted until now.”
Jonas pulled in a breath and stepped back from Ben. “I thank you, but it’s a fucking disaster.”
“Another of the Council’s tricks,” Declan added.
“They can’t do this, can they?” Simon said and sat down abruptly on the couch. “That’s against the Council rules.”
“What’s wrong with all of you?” Ben turned in a circle, glaring at each of them in turn.
“I can’t be the head detective.” Jonas took a DVD from the shelf under the television and put it in the player. He grabbed the remote control, aimed, and pointed. “This”—he waved at the scene appearing on the TV—”is why I can’t have this job.”
An image of Stewie in relation to some incident that, by the looks of it, had happened a few years ago appeared on the screen. Underneath were the words “Flint, Ohio, Head Detective Stewart Belle,” and Stewie was speaking to a reporter.
“Oh crap,” Blair said. He and Ben stood side by side.
“Yes. Oh crap covers it nicely. The head detective must be a human, has always been a human. You know, someone who can be seen by a camera and is available during the full moon,” Jonas said. “Before Stewie there was some dick by the name of Felton, and before that we had the oh-so-delightful Smyth.”
Ben nudged Blair and waved one hand between Declan and Jonas. “Have you noticed that between the thief and the cop, the cop is the one with the problems with authority?”

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.
