Mercs & Strippers, by Meraki P. Lyhne

The mob is threatening to take over not only Black Ryder but other prominent businesses in North-Hub.


Ethan has been paired with his dad as the Corporation’s chosen lawyer, and that in itself causes both old ghosts and new challenges to be resolved.

In the meantime, Ryder tries to be the supportive boyfriend and the capable boss. But he’s in way over his head, and he knows it. When all else fails for Ryder, he at least has the dance…and a trump card on the payroll he wasn’t aware of.

Hayden had danced himself to the honor of the last dance, yet the troubles he had in his wake were more than he, or anyone else, had anticipated. Once Ryder was made aware of it, Hayden found himself encapsulated in a protective shield of Brutus and his brothers.

But the mob isn’t giving up without a fight, and their methods are many and dirty.

Iced Out, by CE Ricci

All’s fair in hate and hockey.


My path to success never included an enemy as a teammate, especially one as infuriating as Quinton de Haas.

Clawing under my skin is his favorite pastime, only feeding the animosity between us as the years pass.

We’re as completely opposite as two people can be; the golden boy and the black sheep.

Constantly at odds or at each other’s throats.

The only thing we can agree on is hockey is our true love, and we’ll do whatever it takes to come out on top.

I never imagined that drive would lead me to do the unthinkable: falling into bed with my not-so-straight rival.

But athletes are a superstitious bunch, and when our hook-ups lead to victories, we tell ourselves we can’t stop.

Besides, it’s all for the sake of the team, right?


*Iced Out is the first in a five book standalone college sports romance series featuring two misunderstood rival teammates, pages of snarky banter, and more secret spicy times than any book should be filled with. Not suitable for anyone under 18 years of age.*

Maybe her luck will change and she will be happier for the holidays. Too bad her car decides to break down on the way.

Choose Me, by Beck Grey

Jules:

I’ve been in love with my brother’s best friend since I was twelve, and twenty years later, Erik Osouf is still so far out of my league, we aren’t even playing the same sport. Not that I play sports. That means talking to people, and my social anxiety makes that all but impossible.

It also makes my brother incredibly overprotective, and while I love that Stef always has my back, it’s why I still can’t tell Erik how I feel. It would wreck their friendship, and after everything Stef’s done for me, I won’t ever be the cause of that. I just wish my heart would get that memo.

Erik:

For years I thought of Jules Evans as the quiet, sweet kid who regularly crushed me at Mario Kart, and let fireflies loose in our camping tent. Then he accidentally admits he’s in love with me. He doesn’t remember saying anything, and I’d never embarrass him by mentioning it, but since then I can’t stop thinking about kissing him.

If it was anyone else, I’d probably have told them how I feel by now. But he’s my best friend’s younger brother. The same best friend who told me Jules is off-limits. That makes this all kinds of impossible. Unless I can convince them both I’m the right man for Jules.

Choose Me is a 70,000 word low angst, brother’s best friend, contemporary MM romance about flawed but devoted families, taking chances, and sweet cinnamon roll Vikings. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.

David doesn’t want to embarrass himself. He just wants to become a good Dom.

David has spent a lot of time denying what he wants. And now he’s ready… mostly. He just needs to learn all the skills and get it right.

A week-long ski trip with a Cuffd Kinkmas event seems like a dream come true for both of them. David slowly gets to try out everything he imagined. And Naftali gets the pampering and care he never knew he wanted.

But will that be enough to stay together when the vacation is over?

A Daddy for Kinkmas has two neurodivergent trans characters, a happy-go-lucky boy with hidden insecurities, a shy Daddy with a lot to offer, a naughty Christmukkuh, and plenty of heat! It’s part of the Naughty or Nice Season Three multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but with so many Daddies and boys finding their happily-ever-afters, why not grab them all?
