Something Undeniable, by Rory Maxwell

Micah Avery has called Split Rock Ranch home for most of his life—it’s one of the few places he can be totally himself without worry or judgment. The ranch, the horses, and the people are Micah’s future, and he couldn’t be happier. The fact that it’s also home to the ranch manager he’s determined to marry one day is icing on the cake . . . all he needs is for Ryan to notice him.

Ryan Astor came to Split Rock Ranch at a time when he was desperate to start over. It was just supposed to be a stop on the road, but instead he found a home and a family—that family includes Micah, the sweet kid who’s been the ranch mascot since before he was tall enough to see over the stall doors. Ryan’s finally found his place, and he can’t imagine wanting anything to change.

Then little Micah Avery grows up. And Ryan’s suddenly confronted with a whole mess of feelings and desires he never expected. Now he needs to decide if he can give in to what they both want without jeopardizing everything they have.

Something Undeniable is a slow-burn, 37k-word novella with an age gap, mutual pining, and plenty of heat. It’s the first book in the Split Rock Ranch series, but can be read as a stand-alone story. However, book two follows the same characters and is MMM. Book three will follow different characters.

Sweat Connection, by Katherine McIntyre

One disaster bi single dad. One sexy plumber on a house call. One hot-as-hell romance….


If I was a hot mess before becoming a single dad, my life’s pretty much an on-fire garbage can now.

Okay, maybe that’s a tad melodramatic—my bestie/baby momma/ex-girlfriend is still awesome, currently in the throuple of her dreams. And my kiddo Sammy’s amazing, albeit exhausting. I’m the one who’s too intense and rambling, too obsessed with random trivia, too liable to set dinner on fire. Essentially, too much for any relationship.

However, when a hottie plumber drops by to fix our toilet—thanks, Sammy—and gives me his number? My luck might just be turning around.


After my dad moved to a retirement community, he left me with the big, old house I grew up in and a whole lot of loneliness.

I thought by now I’d be settled down, but no one’s looking for the guy who likes long hikes with his dog, stargazing, and fixing shit around the house. They want fun, entertaining, flashy—not me.

Except when I give Rhys my private line for an emergency house call, I show up for the job to discover it’s a date. It seems like I might’ve met the one man on earth who’s just as interested as I am—if only we can find the guts to admit it.

Sweat Connection is a high heat, low angst M/M single dad romance with trivia nights, Star Wars rants, and light primal kink that reads as a standalone.

The Boyfriend Game, by Stella Starling

Fake boyfriends for a week? Yes, please.

Carter Olson never expected he’d get a chance to date his older brother’s best friend, Rip Taylor.
Wished for it? Yes.
Fantasized about it? Possibly too much.
But ever thought it would actually happen? Not in a million years, since Rip is straight. But even if it’s just to try and win a gay game show, having Rip for a boyfriend—even a temporary/pretend one—is still the best thing to happen to Carter in… well, ever.
Especially because Rip’s so good at it.
Amazingly good, actually.
So good that Carter starts to hope that maybe it won’t have to end once the show’s over…

If there are two things Rip Taylor lives for, they’re having fun and being there for his friends, so a trip to Vegas to help surprise his best friend’s girlfriend with a big, flashy proposal sounds awesome. And even more fun? His bestie’s plan to try and win some prize money for the wedding by signing the two of them up as contestants on the The Boyfriend Game.
The game show is sponsored by the gay dating app bLoved, and Rip is all in. He may be straight, but he’s never been narrow, and when circumstances (a.k.a. a best friend who can’t hold his tequila) mean that little Carter Olson gets roped into being Rip’s fake boyfriend instead, that’s almost better… because who wouldn’t be able to be a convincing boyfriend to Carter?
After all, Carter’s hella sweet.
Kind of adorable, actually.
And really, really easy to get into character with…

Winning The Boyfriend Game? Rip and Carter have it in the bag.

The Boyfriend Game is a gay romance novel of approximately 75,000 words that contains some confusion about tops and bottoms, a straight guy who realizes he isn’t, an ice cube that melts much too fast, and the kind of luck that can only be found in Vegas. Every Stella Starling romance takes place in the same interconnected, contemporary world. The Boyfriend Game is a standalone book with cameos from other Stella Starling stories, a #boyfriendsbybLoved spinoff that takes place around the time of the epilogue from Ready For Love (Book One of the Semper Fi series).

On the 2, by Felice Stevens

First rule of riding the subway:
Don’t talk to strangers.
Don’t even look at anyone.

But what if they’re grouchy and gorgeous and you’re sitting right next to them?
I always did like a challenge.
I want to turn that frown upside down, but he barely looks at me.
I take a chance and poke the bear, and to my shock, he plays along and growls back.
The more we meet on the train, the more I realize he’s not the uptight grump I first thought. Then one night, there he is—in my world, in my space…his tongue in my mouth.

Mind blown.

But I’m no fool. A man like Nash Roman doesn’t date a guy who sells suits at Macy’s.
Nash is prep school and Ivy League, and I’m night school while working two jobs to pay bills. Nash is fine wine, expensive restaurants and handmade suits, and I’m beer, corner takeout, and a lucky find at Goodwill.

What am I—street-smart Ethan Moreno—doing, playing in his world? This man is older than me, way richer than me, and has already made it clear he doesn’t believe in love. I should walk away. Instead, I’m falling for him. Hard.

Nash couldn’t care less if his father doesn’t think I’m good enough or if people gossip because we’re so different. I need to trust in him and us, but I’ve been burned before.

And just like the Uptown Number 2, sometimes you have to travel a different route to get to the final destination:

Enemy Combatant, by Cara Dee

The Renegades #2 • Romantic Suspense • Stockholm Syndrome • Hurt Comfort • Action • MM
“The best intelligence is the knowledge that your enemy doesn’t know you have.”

Crew Finlay’s ego had taken a hit or two. He couldn’t lie. As a Marine, he’d been one of the best. As a private military contractor, he’d…messed up a bit. Or failed spectacularly. Whatever. And now? A year into his new gig, working in private security for Elliott Jones, Crew had a lot to prove. He refused to screw this up too. They had people to bring home. So when he found himself holding a cartel freelancer hostage, he steeled himself and vowed not to fall for the bastard’s lies. As if Crew would believe this man was an undercover Fed. Come on.

Nah, this tall, older drink of water was full of it. Adrien Mercier, or whatever his real name might be, was going down. Until one day, when Adrien turned the tables, and then Crew was the one sitting with his hands cuffed behind his back.

Darkness Falling, by Bria Ferguson

When the world goes dark, can true love light the way?


I seem like the luckiest witch in the world. Despite him being a straight and human mage, the love of my life, my soulmate, Mike, has agreed to ritually bind our lives together. As excited as I am to join the elite Magic Corps with him, I’m terrified we’ll be dragged into a brewing war between humans and supernaturals. How can I ask for more than friendship from Mike when he’s already given up his family and his whole world for me?


Choosing Lex over the human world is easy. Even if our soulbond is a platonic one, I’ve never doubted that my place in life is by his side. I always thought magic and friendship would be enough to see us through, even against my dad’s homophobia and hatred of supernaturals. Then again, I didn’t expect to start wanting Lex or that “us against the world” would be so literal.

And that’s before the explosions start.

We’ve always known we have a third soulmate somewhere in the world, looking for us. As the world ends, the only way we can survive is to stick closer together and hope our missing piece can join us before it’s too late.

Cue lots of pining from badass cinnamon rolls, fluffy wolf shifters Lex wants to adopt (or keep as a pet), one terrifying snake Mike wishes Lex would forget, precocious princesses, and a pack of witches and shifters touring the Holy Land. From the music-filled streets of New Orleans to the deserts of Afghanistan and Iraq, follow Lex and Mike as they discover just what it means to fall in love with your best friend. Stay tuned for Book 2 in the trilogy, Darkness Creeping, for the full throuple experience, coming Fall 2023!

Caught Stealing, by CE Ricci

It’s not stealing if he’s meant to be mine.

Let me tell you how Holden Sykes operates.

As the campus playboy and one-and-done king, he doesn’t do strings.

Or repeats.

Or names, for that matter.

So when he tries making my best friend the next notch on his bedpost, I react poorly.

Some would call it jealousy or an unrequited crush, but friends protect each other from making mistakes.

The same ones I’ve already made.

Which is why driving Holden away seems like my only option.

Too bad he’s not giving up without a fight.

Each prank leads to another until he turns this into a game far more precarious than intended.

One filled with stolen moments and heated glances, drawing me into his orbit.

But the undeniable attraction simmering between us leaves me caught in the crosshairs of an impossible decision.

Loyalty…or love.

*Caught Stealing is the second in a five book standalone college sports romance series featuring a road-tripping rubber ducky, two guys fighting for the upper hand, and enough cock-blocking shenanigans to make your cheeks flush.

As Above, by Julie Mannino

He lowered his lips to Riley’s ear. “All you have to do is be a good little pet.”

When Riley’s secret friend, Eren, vanishes from the woods where he hides, Riley starts to think he imagined him. After all, what little boy would have fangs, a red, pointed tail like a devil, and no need for food?

Over thirty years later, Riley is taken prisoner in the Fallen realm where angels and demons have been locked in a war for centuries. The demons keep humans and cambions as slaves to fuel their magic, there’s no way out, and their horned, winged leader, Lord Erebus, looks like Eren.

At the age of forty, Lord Erebus is foul, lethal, and has a taste for dark fun. He denies their past friendship and has no time for the imaginings of a slave. All he needs is his army, his scythe, and the energy from his pet, but some glimmer of the old him is still buried under the cruelty. Even if he can’t remember their past, Riley does, and maybe they can have something more even though no one else has ever earned the affection of the demon lord.

But as he uncovers more secrets about himself and Eren, Riley will learn that it never pays to love and submit to a demon.

Regular, Smegular!, by Becca Seymour

A cheesy game of spin the bottle grabs my interest, but it’s the hot guy with sexy piercings and delectable ink who keeps it.

Have I kissed a man before? That’ll be a no.

But I’m definitely interested, and by the way Tiller can’t take his gaze off me, he’s hoping the bottle lands on him.

Spoiler alert: it does.

And holy crap, it’s the hottest kiss I’ve shared with anyone.

Now there’s one slight problem.

That I’m bi isn’t the issue. I’m embracing that new development with eagerness.

It’s the fact that Tiller is my basketball coach’s son that makes my attraction complicated. Add in how Tiller’s joined the coaching team and is instructed to work directly with me, and it’s quite possible there’s going to be nothing regular about this college season.

This book was previously available in the BABE Charity Anthology for three months. This new version is now a full-length novel—doubled in size—with a brand-new conflict, scorching-hot scenes, and more from your loveable Brixham U college basketball team.

Nicky, by Willow Thomas

Falling in love with my stepbrother wasn’t on my bingo card for this year.


My parents lying to me for years isn’t really that shocking. So when they tell me that my actual father is a biker, I decide to track him down. All I’ve ever wanted is a loving family.

Except I can’t stop thinking about him.

When I meet my dad’s family and spot a familiar confident smile, I realise that the hot guy from the bar is my stepbrother.

Do I choose the family I’ve always wanted or the man who makes me feel things no one else has?

While on a job for the MC, I stop off in a bar and meet a man that captivates me straight away. He says no names, but I decide to get it out of him in the morning.

Except he leaves before I wake.

It may have been one night, but I vow to find him.

LonelyCollegeBoy, by J. Allen Grady

LonelyCollegeBoy: Yeah, that’s my profile name on a regionally popular LGBTQ+ dating (or hookup) site, CockyUnicorns. Kinda sad, right? Kinda is an understatement. And it’s weird for me, because I’ve always been the upbeat, optimistic one. A lot of people call me “sunshine,” either as a compliment or with a groan. I hope they don’t notice that’s not me right now. Ever since things started to go wrong, I’ve been losing hope, day by day. When I came out, my parents cut me off. My whole life I’ve been working toward this college degree. I don’t know where I’m going to live next semester or if I can afford to stay in school at all! And I can’t talk to anyone about it but my best friend BJ, but now she won’t stay out of my business. Maybe I can at least find some stress release on CockyUnicorns?

Thomas: I’ve got the life I want. My job pays well, I’ve got a few close friends, and I’m in great shape for my age—which is creeping up there day by day. My daughter is awesome, doing well in school, and mostly stays out of trouble. Everything is going according to the plan, which is awesome. Right? So why do I feel every day like something is missing? Like my life plan is more of a trap than a path? Like there’s this hole in my heart I’ll never fill? I keep promising myself I’ll reexamine the plan and revise as necessary. I’ll put myself out there, and maybe even come out if I can find the guy to make it worth the trouble. Later. Always later. But when I get too lonely, there’s always my trusty app, CockyUnicorns.

As they each turn to CockyUnicorns to find a pleasant diversion, will they end up finding their missing pieces in each other? Or, as worlds collide, will opposites repel rather than attract. The meddling BJ may have something to say about that!

Warren, by Shaw Montgomery

Sometimes you have to decide between a nice guy and your kink…at least, that’s how it feels to Warren.

He knew they were meant to be together from the first time they met, but something is keeping them from taking their relationship to the next level.
