Trinity Trespass by Val Kovalin
Gay paranormal romance
Cover Art by Justin James
A secret war rages throughout the southwestern USA and Mexico between demons and angels, all of whom are trying to pass for human. For Parnell, a demon living in Las Vegas NV, survival depends upon following orders and resisting the allure of any relationship that might bind him to another in sexual slavery.
In his competitive world, he regards other demons such as his lover Navarro as potential opponents. As for the angels, he knows them as the Enslavers whose evil nature compels them to exploit the drug trade in Mexico.
When Navarro and Parnell go to the no-man's land of New Mexico to capture a renegade angel-demon hybrid named Chavez, the three of them enter an uneasy triangle of sexual attraction. Chavez hopes to seize psychic power on the auspicious day of Easter and use it to kill his master. Parnell and Navarro must prevent this or face death and the return of their souls to Hell.
To save himself, Parnell must decide whom to trust, whom to kill, and whether he can find the strength to give his heart to another.

Review from Jenre at Reviews by Jessewave:
4.5 Stars out of 5. "I'm pleased to say that Trinity Trespass turned out to be a commendable first novel. [...] I was thrown into a breathless adventure. Alongside all the action sequences, was an intricate and emotional journey for the third person narrator Parnell, as he copes with the indignity of having less power than his lover, the temptations of the beautiful Chavez and his own growing feelings for Navarro. [...] There were other things I liked about the book too, such as the unusual New Mexico setting; the clever demon politics and hierarchy; the blow-your-mind sex scenes; the action sequences including chases, gun fights and a race for power; the little unusual touches to the world building, such as the 'religion' of the demons, which added flavour to the story; all finished off with excellent descriptive prose and characterisation."
Review from Feliz Faber at Goodreads.com:
5 Stars out of 5. "[Main characters] Parnell and Navarro take off like rockets. Those two are totally hot together, it was easy to buy the emotional passion which needed frequent release through wild sex (of which there is a lot from the very beginning). There was love and hate precariously balanced between them, underlined by Navarro's fierce loyality and Parnell's desperate need. [...] This book is more about the world and characters than about plot (although there IS plot!). I think the author did a great job, and hope she won't let all that work go to waste by NOT writing a sequel. This cries for one. An unusual, intriguing fantasy with speedy action and a lot of very passionate sex. Definitely recommended."
