Apidae, by Xenia Melzer

No good deed—or good record of solving crimes—goes unpunished.

Detectives Andi Hayes and George Donovan of the Charleston PD are on vacation. Or at least they are until they are called back for an emergency: find Chief Norris’s missing son.

Fortunately, Andi’s insect spies lead him right to little Tyler Norris, who is safe and sound.

Unfortunately, along with the chief’s son, they find twenty-five corpses, victims of a serial killer who’s gone unnoticed for over a decade.

Chief Norris promptly cancels Andi and George’s vacation and assigns them as lead detectives on the case. Physical evidence leads them to a mental health facility where some of the victims received treatment, but Andi’s gift—his usual secret weapon—fails him. Promising leads and shady suspects all turn out to be dead ends, and they’re running out of time. Because the killer isn’t going to stop at twenty-five victims—and Tyler Norris has just gone missing again….

Professor Platonic, by Lucy Lennox

I’ve had a very bad day and could really use a hug. Male ISO male for platonic but affectionate sleepover. No nookie or commitments. I don’t want to talk about it, just hold me all night and tell me it’s going to be okay.

When my grad school application to join the Raintree Arctic Expedition gets unexpectedly denied, I know exactly who to blame. Professor River Henry has always had it out for me. For some reason, he holds me to a higher standard than everyone else in the evolutionary biology department which means he probably failed to recommend me for the research expedition and he’s most likely going to give my final exam a big, fat F.

All I want to do is drown my sorrows in some platonic cuddles and pretend I haven’t hit rock bottom before my scientific career has even had a chance to get off the ground.

But when Professor Henry is the one standing on the other side of the hotel room door in response to my add for comfort, I suddenly realize with breath-stealing horror, just how far I have left to fall.

Professor Platonic first appeared in the Nightingale Charity Anthology.

Of Love and Shadows, by M.A. Church

Kage: I may be powerful. I may be the darkness. But it turns out I’m not the only monster who lurks in the shadows. The silence has been broken, and a secret from long ago has been unearthed with devastating consequences. The past has come back to haunt me, and everything I thought I knew has been turned on its head.

Danger strikes at everything I hold dear, and death stalks my mate and me.

Austin: Not all monsters have wings, horns, and a tail. And sometimes monsters really are monsters. I know exactly how far someone will go to hide toxic secrets, but even I am shocked by the latest revelations. Pandora’s box has been opened, and now we’re dealing with the aftermath. My monster grieves, and I ache for him.

But blood isn’t thicker than water, and found family is everything.

Chaos reigns as the attacks from the mimic escalate, and the daemon clan of San DeLain goes on high alert. But violence is never far away, and when the past doesn’t stay buried, the answers will lead to even more questions.

Death is coming, and the end is near. But for whom?

Drawn into a web of Solarian politics, Soren finds himself at the center of a storm of his own making, unwilling to break free if it means losing the man he loves.

His eliXXir, by L J Harris

A temptation like no other.
And for Noah, that was the scariest part of all.

Spring Fakers, by Catherine Cloverdale

Theo Ward is the hot, popular jock who’s never once looked my way. Until he asks me to play his fake boyfriend over spring break… and discovers he can’t look away.


Studying is what I’m best at; not partying or awkward socializing. So when I finally let my only friend drag me out, of course I manage to spill a drink on a handsome athlete named Theo.

He finds me a week later with the craziest of suggestions. He wants us to fake date. Embarrassing as it is, it’ll give me at least some relationship experience, and for him? He’s tired of his friends trying to hook him up all the time.

A simple enough arrangement… until we go on a spring break road trip where I have to spend every minute with my new boyfriend. I know someone like Theo would never be into a nerd like me. But as we spend every day pretending and every night in the same bed, it’s getting hard to remember that fact.


I may be a party boy, but I’m not interested in hooking up with everything that moves. My friends don’t seem to get that. So when fate pushes the cute-but-nerdy Charlie into my path, I come up with a wild idea–maybe too wild.

Fake dating seemed simple enough, but I should know even the best laid plans go awry. Our road trip lands us in bed together, and waking up with him in my arms is starting to feel…right. I’m not looking for a relationship, and teaching Charlie how to be in one is as far as I’m willing to go.

We’re too different for anything lasting between us, and Charlie deserves far better than me. Even if the idea of letting him go is getting more painful by the day.

Spring Fakers is a steamy college m/m romance and is the first book in the Summerville University series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but is more fun when read in order. Guaranteed happy ending.

Raiden, by Taylor Rylan

Can a sweet omega wolf tame the beast of a gargoyle? Will he accept all that his mate has to offer and need?

Raiden Mason is the serious twin. He’s gone through life watching and observing, and when his ability is needed by the council, he is only too happy to do his duty. But when he scents something amazing, he and his beast are suddenly focused on making the sweet omega wolf theirs, despite the warnings from his mate’s cousin. But will Alexander feel the same?

Alexander Fabré was orphaned at fifteen, and although his cousin and the new pack alpha took responsibility for him, he often feels stifled by his overbearing cousin. He’s grateful, but he longs for something that he lost at such a young age—a family that understands and accepts him without question. He moved to Timber Valley in hopes of finding both, and when he scents his mate, his hope is finally restored. But does he ask too much of the sexy gargoyle that fate has deemed his?

Meshing their lives together is easy enough, despite the discovery of a truly dirty pack that keeps pulling Raiden away on assignment and Alexander suffering from a difficult pregnancy. Can they survive everything life is throwing at them? Will Alexander finally have the family that he has desired for so long? Will Raiden?

Raiden is Book Seven in the Paranormal Council Enforcers series. Each book in this series will focus on a different couple, but these books are not standalones and should be read in order as there is an ongoing backstory that won’t be resolved quickly. This is a fated mate story in an MPreg world, and there will be babies in this story. You should expect all the normal shenanigans, heats, biting, and remember that sometimes even fated mates need a little help.

StrangeLove, by TL Bradford (Narrated by Corey H. Bennson)

The year began great for me.

Became the starting quarterback for an NFL team – check.
Secured a multi-million-dollar contract – check.
Moved to LA and lived the glamorous life – check.

What could possibly cause me any issues?
Oh yeah, one more thing. I’m gay.

I was outed a couple of years ago to my former team and my family, but it hasn’t been made public knowledge yet. Well, that is, until now. I’ll be known as the first LGBTQ+ active player in the league’s history. And if I stick to the conditions of my contract, it won’t be a problem. The thing is, I’m not really a guy known for playing by the rules.

Most people think of my personality as the three B’s: bold, brash, and blunt. My mouth has gotten me into more predicaments than I can count. Even my best friends have told me I’m stubborn as a mule and have the delicacy of a bull in a china shop. This presents a big problem for me because I have my eyes set on winning over the guy who stole my heart years ago, only he doesn’t know it yet.

Getting his attention is going to be challenging. It’s a good thing I’m tenacious.
Unfortunately, it’s not great timing and could get me into a whole mess of trouble.
Why does falling for a guy need to be anyone’s business but mine?

The past couple of years were a whirlwind of activity. My career took off after my guest shot appearance in Americana. I appeared in a few indie features and finally got a shot at my first major motion picture release. The work came as a great distraction from my personal life, which took a further nosedive after I found out the guy I was falling for had already fallen for someone else.

Why should I be surprised? He was another in a string of failed relationship attempts. I swore I wouldn’t get involved with anyone else, choosing to stay focused on my career instead. That is, until the force of nature known as Archer McMillan came storming into my life.

To be the pursued instead of the pursuer was not in the cards. To top it off, he’s everything I’m not. Yet, there’s something to be said for a guy who can make you laugh when it’s the last thing you want to be doing. I’ll admit he’s got a playful and determined spirit. Archer also has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I’ve ever known. Not the mention the cute way he… Hold on. What am I doing? We cannot be a thing. Nope. Not gonna happen. Ever. Right?


Follow Kai and Archer as they cross the lines as friends, partners-in-crime, and confidants, to discover a love beyond boundaries that needs no definition.

The Scars That Bind Us, by Michele Notaro

What kind of mage would be crazy enough to crush on a shifter? Me. Apparently me.

The world is a messed-up place. Especially for those of us who have magic, and I know just how terrible it can be firsthand. Which is one of the reasons I try to stay away from people… humans and shifters especially.

Unfortunately, the NHSO forces magi to work alongside shifters to help protect the humans from taragorians—scary beasts from another realm. Which means I’m thrown onto a new team and forced to work with Cosmo Ono-Nai, a lion shifter.

And for some reason, I can’t keep my eyes off him.

The Scars That Bind Us is a 115K word novel and the first book in the MM urban fantasy series, The Magi Accounts.

Unless Max is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
