Cut To The Feeling: The Complete Series, by Noah Steele

Cut to the feeling with this complete collection of low-angst, steamy instalove MM romance!

This box set features all four original Cut To The Feeling stories, plus a bonus novella, and three shorts that were previously exclusive to newsletter subscribers.

Racing into Love: Aiden’s relationship rut ends when pro racer Derrek speeds into his cozy bookstore and crashes the end of a disastrous date. After just one kiss, they can’t ignore the sparks — or the risks that come with Derrek’s fame. Opposites attract as Aiden and Derrek’s lives collide in a steamy instalove romance speeding toward a happily ever after.

Fighting for Love: Seth is a muscular mystery Oliver is dying to solve, but Seth’s jealous, jilted boss Nik is standing in the way. As they begin to explore every part of each other, Seth discovers a love strong enough to tear down the walls around his heart. Together, they’ll fight to free Seth from Nik’s dangerous grasp.

Acts of Love: Popular jock Alex jumps at the chance to act in a love scene with shy theater nerd Beckett to pass his class and keep his scholarship. When Beckett refuses, Alex convinces him with a blistering kiss that leaves the reserved boy wanting more. When these college boys take center stage, it’s not long before they realize their love isn’t just an act.

Visions of Love: Marc has been living in black and white since the sudden loss of his ex. Flirty Scottish artist Connor is an explosion of color that reminds Marc of the man he loved. But is he in love with the ghost of his feelings, or can Marc stop living in the past long enough to chase his second chance at love?

This box set also includes the following bonuses:

Sounds Like Love: College musician Theo writes an epic love song for sleepy-eyed florist Gael in this flirty, fluffy instalove novella.

Hot Halloween: Oliver and Seth have some steamy fun in costume while getting ready for a Halloween party.

Anniversary: Beckett walks in on Alex practicing for a steamy surprise with a toy and decides to join in the fun with his boyfriend.

Through Connor’s Eyes: Chapter one of Visions of Love told from Connor’s point of view.

This is a collection of low-angst gay instalove romances promising plenty of steam, swoony moments, and a found family of loyal friends finding love in the big city. Each book can be read as a standalone with their own happily ever afters, but the series is better read in order as presented in the box set.

Hold the Door, by Vinni George

One hidden crush.
One bunch of plastic mistletoe.
One alcohol-fueled kiss.
One set of taillights as Max Martino left town.

Sixteen years later…

Sam Addison hates change, and his company’s new merger is stretching him to his limit. When Sam finds out an older, hotter, and amazingly talented Max Martino is part of the acquisition, he knows the only way to protect his heart is to avoid Max—and their history—at any cost.

Max never planned to settle down, but recently he’s been pining for roots. A new job, a new city, and a second chance with Sam makes the thought of staying in one place exciting for the first time ever.
But the harder Max pushes, the farther Sam runs, sometimes literally, and Max begins to wonder if Sam can ever let go of the biggest mistake Max ever made—leaving.

But maybe a second chance at forever is as simple as holding the door open for love.

Hold the Door is the first full-length novel in the Open Doors series and features an accountant who’s uptight unless he’s on the beach, a globetrotting travel photographer who never realized he wanted to settle down, and surfing lessons that often lead to more.

Daddy’s Little Artist, by M.A. Innes

When getting unexpectedly sold in a charity auction is the most interesting thing that’s happened lately, Gray knows something has to change. Unfortunately, he first has to figure out why he’s been purchased and if the crayons around the cutie’s house and ABC chicken nuggets he’s served for dinner have anything to do with it.

Camden’s pretty sure he didn’t order the attractive, slightly frustrated man online, but with him standing on his front porch and glaring so strikingly, he can’t rule it out. He knows he’s slightly disorganized and easily distracted, but he would remember ordering Gray to be delivered, right?

When two meddling family members butt in where they don’t belong, a new Daddy and a sweet little with a passion for junk food and crayons might find true love…but they’re still hoping to drop a house or two on some meddling busybodies.

Daddy’s Little Artist is part of Daddies for Dollars multi-author series, where every book features a swoon-worthy Daddy, a boy he adores, and a happily ever after helped along by a fundraiser event. Brought to you by six popular M/M authors, each book stands alone, but with so many delicious Daddy pairings to choose from, why not read them all?

Defender, by Nicole Dykes

Travis Wyatt
All I’ve ever wanted was to go to college and get out of Kensley.That small town is all I’ve ever known. I want to be free to be myself, not stifled by small minds in the football-loving town where I grew up.
And then I blew my one and only chance.
So now, I’m just stuck. Stuck in small-town life, with the same small-town people I’ve always known. Stuck where I don’t want to be. Constantly on the defense and hiding secrets about myself. To never be the real me.
I’m lost, and I’m angry. But those people I was desperate to get away from, they don’t stop. They insist on showing me that maybe it’s not about my location.
That maybe I can be free right where I am.


Oakley Easton
Travis is way too uptight. I don’t know why. He has everything a guy could want—a steady job and friends who would do anything for him. A great simple, small-town life. But I guess that’s not what he wants.
He’s always been different. Better. Smarter. Stronger.
Still, I find myself wanting to show him everything he’s dreamed of is within his grasp. That he doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. That he can be himself wherever he is, and I’ll back him up.
Because that’s what I’m good at—on and off the field. I’ll always be his defender.
If he’d only let me.

How to Love Thine Enemy, by Eli Easton

Can a forbidden love heal the rift between two enemy tribes?

Legend says that, centuries ago, the sled dogs and the Inuit were so deeply bonded that the dogs rose up on two legs and became men. The Qimmig and the People lived together happily until one of the Inuit betrayed the dog-men. The Qimmig fled, vowing never to return.

Taq figured that was just another story elders told around the campfire. But when he witnesses two guys survive a polar bear attack by shifting into dogs, he has to rethink everything. Could the Qimmig really exist? And could they have anything to do with the special, golden-eyed boy he’d played with as a child?

Cupun has missed his old friend, Taq. But it is forbidden for the Qimmig to have anything to do with one-skinned Inupiat. When a series of events brings Taq back into his life, the feelings of protectiveness and joy awakened in his dog’s heart tell him that Taq is his soul’s mate.

But neither the Qimmig nor the Inuit are prepared to accept this bond. Are the boys fated for tragedy? Or will their love find a way?

How to Love Thine Enemy is a star-crossed lovers/Romeo and Juliet trope set in Alaska. Friends-to-lovers, doggie shifters, and destined romance with a little wilderness adventure.

And that’s not the only mystery he’s dealing with. The new chief of police is, by turns, giving him heart palpitations and homicidal thoughts. Xander can’t decide if the gorgeous yet infuriating Lorne MacBain is on his side, or trying to drive him insane. Added to that, the man doesn’t believe in magic, and since that’s who Xander is, their future looks anything but bright.

But Lorne is not the unimaginative, stick-in-the-mud Xander thinks he is. And a rock to anchor him as his life is turning upside down is just the thing Xander needs. Now if only the two of them can stay alive…

Dickathlon, by Finn Dixon

It was a new feeling, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the hunk I met at the Olympics.

Ty

When Declan Moore knew who I was at the Brisbane Olympics, I was speechless. Embarrassingly so. It took a lesson in sexuality from my bestie Luke and his secret boyfriend to blow the doors off my entire identity. They referred to it as a bisexual awakening, but it felt more like a bisexual slap-in-the-face.

My strength and reflexes rewarded me with Declan’s phone number by the pool, and it’s all I could think about when I got back to the states. Despite multiple tries – more times than I should’ve – he never texted back.

According to everyone, I’m supposed to get out there and explore the world of other dudes and their junk. There’s just one problem.

None of them are Declan Moore.

Declan

Returning from Brisbane with a gold medal in the decathlon was a dream come true, and I’d do anything to repeat it. But four years is a long time, and for now, all I can think about is the muscular blond gymnast that caught my eye and then caught me in his arms, saving me from a likely career-ending disaster.

I complimented his pommel horse routine – perfect – I flashed him my smile – also perfect – and I gave him my number. Was I supposed to lift him onto my shoulder and carry him back to my room?

Because it’s been months with no texts and no response on social media, and I can only last so long against my mother’s attempts at setting me up with “nice boys.”

I don’t want a nice boy. I want Tyler Hale.

Dickathlon is a full-length gay romance novel about two men who felt an instant connection trying to find their way back to each other. It features a made-up sexploratory checklist, the educational misuse of produce, a pants-tearing Santa, and a brat that doesn’t know how to spell ‘chastity cage’. As part of the Champions Series, it takes place between Rings of Lust and Floored by Love. While it’s not a requirement to have read those books first, it would enhance one’s Dickathlon experience.
