Deal in Divinity, by Chely Penn

Lots of people have demons, but they’re not usually literal.

Heaven and Hell are warring on Earth, and Ander Castillo is stuck in the middle. Ever since demons broke through the gates of Hell and decimated humanity, Ander, along with other “blends”—humans with angelic blood—has been hiding in Gardners, one of the few remaining sanctuaries. The decrepit city is watched over by strange, distant angels, who protect its residents but offer no advice or comfort.

Leaving Gardners is a death sentence, but love drives Ander to attempt the impossible and set out beyond the walls to find the foster brother he lost long ago. Yet Ander’s no true angel, and a few feathers on his neck can’t save him from the monsters running wild over Earth. Soon enough he faces an impossible choice: a vicious death or making a deal that will tie him to a bloodthirsty demon. Forever.

Everything is not as it seems, though. Ander’s left wondering if evil can wear an angel’s face or love can hide in a demon’s luminous eyes. As he and his new deal-bound “partner” are drawn into the affairs of entities far beyond them, Ander’s strength and resolve are tested, and only love and loyalty will give him a chance at a future worth living.

The Deliverance of Marek Sommers, by Ashlyn Drewek

Marek Sommers is everything Misha Chernyshevsky shouldn’t want—young, angry at the world, and, worst of all, a man. The fact Marek is dealing drugs for a competitor is the icing on the cake. None of that deters the Russian mafia boss, though.

From the moment he lays eyes on the surly bartender, Misha is captivated. Learning about Marek’s troubled past and fearing for his future, Misha is certain that Marek needs his help—whether he wants it or not.

Convincing Marek to trust him, however, proves to be a more formidable task than Misha anticipates. But if they have any chance of surviving the brutal world of the Russian mafia, Misha needs Marek to trust him before it’s too late.

THE DELIVERANCE OF MAREK SOMMERS is a slow-burn MM romance about a down-and-out bartender with a harrowing past and the Russian mafia boss determined to save him from it all. Violence and heartache make the tender moments that much sweeter, HEA guaranteed. It is intended for a mature audience and reader discretion is advised. A full list of triggers can be found in the front matter of the book and at my website under Tropes & Triggers.

This book can be read as a standalone. However, it is a spinoff from the Solnyshko Duet and contains spoilers for those books if you haven’t read them.

Baby Blue: A Stick Handling Novella, by Shae Michaels

Wearing an oversized foam head and being the mascot of an NHL team might not have been his childhood dream, but Miles Gillespie likes his job with the Bangor Blue Bangers. He just wished that, occasionally, people would remember his name isn’t actually Blue.

A PR executive with the Bangers, Scott Delgado feels a certain responsibility to monitor all of Blue’s activities and appearances, even if he isn’t possibly, technically, his boss. And it must be that sense of responsibility that has him flying across the country when Miles gets injured.

As Scott gets to know the man inside the suit, will he be able to handle falling for the man with eyes as blue as the synthetic hair of the mascot he plays or will he let their work roles get in the way?

This is a 35K word novella, set within the hockey world of Shae Michaels’ Stick Handling series. There are mentions of other characters and events from the series, but this can be read as a complete stand-alone work.

Wrapped in Wishes, by J.H. Knight

After moving around most of his life, Sean Ellis is finally putting down some roots in the friendly little town of Sterling Hollow. But those roots might be ripped out from under him after his ex-roommate leaves him high and dry. With the bills mounting and a car that barely runs, what he really needs is a Christmas miracle. And maybe a boyfriend. Luckily for him, Santa’s big day is just around the corner, and despite the spate of bad luck and unfortunate circumstances, Sean has been a good boy all year.


Bruce Cafferty hasn’t felt the Christmas spirit in a long time, and he’s pretty sure those days are behind him. Until he meets Sean, who might as well be an elf from the North Pole. Can Sean’s relentless cheer heal the ache in Bruce’s heart and show him that love is always worth a chance?


Wrapped in Wishes is a heartfelt, heat-filled small-town romance with a handful of elderly neighbors, a lot of found family, a few dogs, a secret Santa, and a drag queen named Stella.

Tell No Tales, by Edie Montreux

When love’s compass spins, will it steer Vadim and Klaus toward mutual ruin or redemption?

Vadim has made peace with his former crew. He’s convinced them their emperor is in danger, but he’s still at war with himself. He’s certain his relationship with Klaus is irreparable. Besides, he’s already loved and lost twice. He doesn’t deserve a third chance with a man who is his better in every way.

Klaus sees Vadim only as an enemy. He craves a normal life of laughter and love, but no matter how much he desires it, he’ll never be normal. His ability to detect magic users and his skill as a pleasure house worker makes that impossible. Vadim only cares about the former, not the latter, but Klaus wishes to ensnare him with both.

Vadim handles Klaus with kid gloves, while Klaus snaps at him with bratty responses and underhanded actions. He might have gone too far by sabotaging Vadim’s sail bed, forcing them to share a mattress in the ship’s hold.

When Vadim’s gloves come off, he could kill Klaus once and for all, or his touch could drive them both to recklessness.

If you loved Vadim’s “touch him and die,” and “you called, I came” stance toward Klaus in Take No Prisoners, the magic continues in Tell No Tales. While each book has a separate happily ever after with new main characters, it is best to read the Romancing the High Seas series in order. Tell No Tales, book 2, is a male/male romance between two versatile consenting adults. It has a grumpy death weaver and a bratty former prostitute dealing with their feelings now that they don’t hate each other as much as they once did, all while trying to rescue their naive emperor from his evil general.

Cowboys Don’t Come Out, by Tara Lain

Is the closet big enough to hold two cowboys?

Rand McIntyre stays in the closet to protect what he’s built – his small California horse ranch and the privilege of teaching kids to ride.

Kai Kealoha, a genuine Hawaiian cowboy, stays closeted to protect his “kids”, the siblings he raises with no official approval.

Add in one detested holiday with parents at Hana Ranch on Maui and the two cowboys bond over a love of dancing, a nude beach, and each other’s beautiful butts.

But vacation sex doesn’t count, and nobody gives up real life for a few hot minutes in a bamboo forest.

Unless they do.

When Rand braves his paralyzing fear of flying, his relationship with his parents, and his beloved business to respond to a call for help from Kai’s brother and sister, both men have to re-revaluate what it means to be family – and who’d make it worth it to come out.

COWBOYS DON’T COME OUT is a coming out, single dad, must-love-kids, custody battle, fear-of-flying, cowboy-sexy, two-step dancing, Hawaii-for-the-holidays, MM romance.

Festive Friends With Benefits, by Annabelle Jacobs

All Vic wants for Christmas is a second chance at love…he just doesn’t know it yet.

When Vic Marlow agrees to spend December helping out his best friend, he doesn’t expect to run into an old flame. He’s there to work and be with family, not take a trip—albeit a tall, built, sexy one—down memory lane.

Sean Richmond left his past behind nineteen years ago. He’s worked hard at putting that life behind him, so it’s a shock when it suddenly shows up in the little Peak District village he calls home.

With the magic of Christmas in the air, the festive spirit sparks a fire that never quite died. Maybe this is their chance to explore what fate stole from them all those years ago.

Festive Friends is an MM second chance holiday romance, with overly supportive friends and family, awesome pets, and all the snuggly holiday feels.

Heal Me, by Beck Grey

A lawyer and an architect walk into a bar…

Jocelin:

What do you do when your boss’s pushy nephew repeatedly asks you out and won’t take no for an answer? You create a fake boyfriend. One who works a lot, so he never comes to office functions or meets you for lunch. It works well until le salaud calls my bluff.

So that’s how I find myself at a client event, practically begging a handsome stranger to play said boyfriend. Only after I calm down do I realize le bel homme in the bespoke suit is no stranger at all. He’s my best friend’s brother, and mon Dieu, he cleans up well!

When Gunnar volunteers to keep up the ruse beyond one night, of course, I say yes. I’m no fool. But fake love can have very real consequences…

Gunnar:

Being accosted by the attractive, if slightly flustered, Jocelin Allard before I even make it out of the parking lot isn’t how I expect to start my evening. But pretending to be his boyfriend for a few hours seems like a harmless way to liven up an otherwise painful social event.

And as far as dates go, fake or otherwise, I could do a lot worse. He’s smart, gorgeous, and has a sexy accent. Plus, my sister would kill me if I left her bestie hanging.

When the evening goes shockingly well, almost effortlessly, our relationship turns real, and for a while, it’s total bliss. Until I unintentionally take a wrecking ball to my life. Again.

Heal Me is a low-medium angst, MM fake boyfriend, sister’s best friend, contemporary romance about bad decisions, past trauma, and loving someone including their flaws. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA

It’s here that David meets and falls in love with fellow freshman, Connor Pfeif. Connor is handsome, a gifted composer, and the biggest flake in school. He’s everything the studious, hard-working David isn’t, and no matter how David feels about him, it seems Connor would never return that affection.

This all changes when the truth comes out after a wild party and David and Connor form a deeper bond than either of them has ever known.

But with this newfound love comes a dark side as he learns terrible truths about his new boyfriend—unfinished relationships, a history of reckless behavior, and suicidal tendencies. Things turn tragic and ugly, putting David to the ultimate test as he must decide if he can stand with the greatest love of his life.

Blaze, by RM Neill

Blaze
Whoever says money can solve all your problems is a damn liar. It only creates unnecessary headaches and does nothing to erase bitter memories.

Deep down, I’m still the same guy I’ve always been. No matter how many zeros are in my bank account. No matter how far I run, or how much richer I become. Where I came from will never change.

I’m tired of pretending. It’s why I’ve come back to my hometown. To the simple life, to clearing my mind and finding the balance that’s always just out of reach.
No suits, no city living, no cheats and liars, and definitely no complications.

But the funny thing is, there’s a situation I wasn’t prepared for. The ranch hand on my best friend’s farm with a shy smile and talented hands. River is easygoing, confident and carefree, my total opposite.

Maybe an unexpected complication is exactly what I need to make things easy again.
Maybe finding my way back to who I truly am is easier if I’m not alone.

River
I don’t need much to be happy.
I have my job at Broken Horn Ranch, my custom furniture building on the side, and a standing date to dinner with my dad every Friday night.

Life doesn’t need excitement or fancy adventures to be fulfilling. Things are completely good just the way they are. There’s no sense toppling my perfectly balanced apple cart.

But I wasn’t expecting the tall, dark, and handsome man who arrived at the ranch on horseback and sent my comfortable, ordinary world spinning.
Blaze is the boss’s best friend and a part owner of the ranch. His brilliant smile masks his hidden troubles, and if I had a few pennies to spare for his thoughts, I’d spend every last one.

Maybe I don’t have everything I need after all.
Maybe I need him.

Blaze is the second book in The Broken Ranch series and can be read as a standalone. Expect to find two men in their forties remembering what it’s like to be kids again while falling in love, a new hobby making spoons, an abundance of romantic gestures and a super swoony sleigh ride.

Forever After, by Marie Sinclair

Alex Toler specializes in saving old houses, but he couldn’t salvage his marriage after a disastrous game of “Never Have I Ever” outed him as not as straight as his wife wanted. Fortunately, a friend’s spare beach house in San Francisco gives him a quiet place to pull his life together.

As a counselor at a queer youth center, Diego Alcaraz is adept at handling the crisis du jour. But after a devastating fire destroys almost everything he owns, he’s not dealing with the fallout as well as he’d hoped. And the only place he could find to live has him sharing it with the one man who completely fooled his gaydar, and seems to hate him on principle.

Every clash between them makes Diego suspect his instincts weren’t so far off, after all, but Alex is having none of the guy whose attempted hook-up at a mutual friend’s wedding had him reacting with an unequivocal “Never Will I Ever.” Between the divorce’s bitter aftermath and one of his kids coming out as trans, Alex has enough on his plate without the added complication of figuring out his own sexuality or falling in love with his housemate.

When it comes to love, both men are in uncharted waters. And it’s about to get a lot stormier…

NoteForever After can be read as a standalone, but characters from previous books in the series appear. Weaving threads of queer history into the fabric of Alex and Diego’s present-day love story, this book contains a messy vs. neat-freak relationship, a mystery from the past, and decadent mac-and-cheese peace offerings.
