“Would you just admit you can’t see in the dark?” Toshiro snapped in pure frustration. “Mack. Are you listening to me?”
“I’m fine. My ears work perfectly.”
Fine, my arse.
Well, my arse is fine.
“You walked into the table.” Toshiro watched in the darkened room through the night vision on his camera while his stubborn husband stumbled around. “And into the sofa—oh, and the wall. Classic. You’re supposed to crack the safe, not take a header into it.”
“Toshi,” Mack whispered his nickname sharply. “Couldn’t you yell at me in Cantonese or Japanese or any one of the hundred languages you speak? It would still be distracting, but I wouldn’t understand a word of it.”
“I speak thirty languages—not a hundred.” Toshiro grinned even though Mack couldn’t see it. “I suppose the point of a timed run-through of cracking the safe might require your full attention. Oh, look, you tripped over the carpet again.”
“Gregor Tempest Mackay Ueda-Easton. Fine, fine. I’ll be quiet. Continue walking into the wall, but I’m not explaining your concussion to the others.” Toshiro continued to ramble about the idiotic stubbornness of his husband in Portuguese, one of the many languages he’d picked up over the years. “Idiota.”
“I understood that one.” Mack tossed one of the drill bits of his safe-drilling rig in his husband’s general direction—missing him completely. “Keep cussing me out in Spanish.”

“I loved this book so much, I am reading it again. Truly, Dahlia Donovan is one of my favorite indy authors. Her ability to weave plot lines together as well as giving the characters such growth and personality is my idea of perfection. I have many favorites, but this one is at the top. Toshi and Mack are probably the best and most well written couple. They work together, their personalities play off one another, the romance, sex, trust, literally everything between them just works… and works well.” ~ 5 stars from RJ on Amazon
Join Mack and Toshiro as they attempt to pull off one more heist before their lives are forever changed.

I thought it might be fun to do character sketches of some of the people in my upcoming release, One Last Heist. Up first is Mack, who’s visual inspiration is featured in the cover (the lovely Stuart Reardon.) So, here we go.
Full Name: Gregor Tempest McKay Ueda-Easton
He was named for several family heroes–all unsavoury pirate figures from the 1800s.
Several. All pirate-related–an old ship, antique compass/map.
Outside of his husband Toshiro? Jude is definitely his closest friend.
What is he afraid of?
Losing his sight.
He has an inherited degenerative disease which has slowly been stealing his vision and will eventually cause him to be at least legally blind if not fully so. He’s terrified of being unable to do what he loves most–planning and complete grand heists.
What motivates him?
The thrilling of successfully stealing. Mack particularly enjoys being able to return war plunder to their original owners (or their families.) It makes him feel like Robin Hood.
He also strives to honour the pirate legacy that goes back for generations in his family.
What does he like to do?
Short answer: His husband.
Long answer: His husband up against a wall, across a bed, over a couch, etc.
You get the idea.
Where has he been?
All over the world.
What does he lie to himself about?
That his sight isn’t being to deteriorate.
