Love In The Mediterranean, by RJ Peterson

Neil Watkins isn’t too surprised to receive an invitation to Rob Asher and Ben Rockingham’s wedding. After all, he’s been best friends with Ben’s son Kyle for several years. But he is excited to be invited to join them on the honeymoon – a party for a select group of family and friends on an all-expense paid Mediterranean cruise. He’s hesitant at first, but Kyle convinces him to go. Well, his own love life sucks at the moment. Maybe he’ll have better luck in the Med.

When he receives an invitation to their wedding and honeymoon party, Matthew Palmer balks at the idea of joining Rob and Ben on their honeymoon cruise. The master jeweler, a friend to both men, thinks the offer is way too generous, but Rob’s best friend Samantha persuades him to rethink his decision. His last relationship really knocked him for a loop, and maybe Sam was right and he should think about himself for a change.

When Neil and Matthew meet, unexpected and undeniable sparks fly. Has their luck finally changed? Can this really be their second chance at love in the Mediterranean?

The Lady Under the Lake, by E.J. Russell (Greg Boudreaux, narrator)

This client is all wet…

After receiving a hot tip on the whereabouts of my almost-boyfriend’s nearly-ex-husband (hey, I told you—it’s complicated!), I thought my love life was finally coming up for air. But when we stake out the remote lake, it’s not the ex who surfaces.

It’s the Faerie King’s long-missing mother (and I mean really long, as in double-digit centuries), and she wants to hire Quest Investigations. Since one of my bosses is the king’s brother, he has a tsunami of…feelings about her as a potential client, and refuses to take the case. Instead, he passes it to me.

Yes! However…

Should I be thrilled at the vote of confidence or suspicious that he’s tossing me in the deep end without a life preserver, the better to punish the woman who abandoned her kid all those years ago?

You know what? It doesn’t matter. I may be Quest’s token human, but I’ve proven I can get the job done, so I dive right in. Then the lady explains what she wants me to do: find her missing child.

Seriously? I expected more of a challenge. All I have to do is introduce her to the king and bingo, case closed. But when she says, “Not that one,” this little family drama threatens to send ripples throughout the supernatural community—especially with my boss in over his head as the prime suspect in a fae kidnapping.

As if things weren’t complicated enough… Remember that nearly-ex? When he shows up and muddies the waters, I’m faced with a choice: I can solve this case or I can finally hook my almost-boyfriend.


The Lady Under the Lake is the third in the Quest Investigations M/M mystery series, a spinoff of E.J. Russell’s Mythmatched paranormal rom-com story world. It contains no on-page sex or violence, and although there is a romantic subplot, it is not a romance. The series is best read in order.

Detonate, by Reese Knightley

The love of a lifetime hasn’t always been easy…

Stefano – Phoenix Commander
He’d waited around long enough.
They’d known each other for over thirty years, been together for a good portion of those years, and had lived in the same house for the past two.
And still, Giovanni Rossi wouldn’t tell people they were a couple. Of course, several of their family and friends suspected they were together, but nothing had ever been confirmed. And frankly, Stefano hated all the secrecy.
Maybe Rossi didn’t want to make it official between them. Or maybe it was as simple as, Rossi wanted to live a straight life for the public.

Bottom line?
Stefano is tired of living in Rossi’s closet.

Rossi – Phoenix Chief
How the hell had he gotten into this predicament?
His boyfriend, who on all accounts should have been his husband years ago, had left him.

And Rossi had only himself to blame.
Now he had to use his elite team of operatives to find the man who held his heart. If he had to, he’d toss Stefano over his shoulder and carry him home. But what if that didn’t work? Well then… he would have to come up with something else to convince Stefano to give him another chance.

Because there’s no way in hell Rossi is going to live without him.

*Come along for a wild ride in Detonate (Out for Justice book seven) as the men of Phoenix help Rossi track down Stefano!

**While it is not necessary to read the series to enjoy Detonate, previous couples are involved and do have opinions.


Christmas Bizarre, by Jodi Payne & BA Tortuga

Charlotte Miller is tired of feeling like a failure. She may have gotten herself fired, her love life has imploded…so when she gets the call that the annual Summit Springs Christmas Bazaar, which helps support her family’s farm, is in trouble, she heads home to try to save the day. Maybe her luck will change and she will be happier for the holidays. Too bad her car decides to break down on the way.

Naomi “Lars” Beckett is too busy with the tree farm she runs and Christmastime to worry about a stranded hottie like Charlotte, but when they get snowed in together at an old cabin, she figures that’s what she gets for trying to help. On the surface these two seem to have nothing in common, but opposites do attract, especially with the magic of the season, and they find they have more in common than they think.

Once they’re back in the crazy mix of family, well-meaning town folk, and trying to make things just right for Christmas though, will they be able to make something together that lasts longer than old wrapping paper and holiday leftovers?

Christmas Bizarre is a small town, opposites attract, lesbian romance set in fictional Summit Springs, Colorado.

Omega for Sale, by Beau Brown

Omega Atlas Payne never imagined he’d be at The Auction being ogled by rich alphas. He had bigger plans for his life that didn’t include being an incubator to some alpha’s offspring. But when his father disgraces his family name, it’s either sell himself to the highest bidder or starvation.

Alpha Dante Stone is still grieving the loss of his omega a decade later. He has zero interest in taking a new omega. Still, he’s inexplicably drawn to the young omega who seems completely out of place at The Auction.
When it looks as if the nastiest alpha at The Auction is about to win Atlas, something inside Dante snaps, and he buys Atlas himself.

But once he has Atlas in his home, he has no idea what to do with him. He craves Atlas but is too guilt-ridden to give either of them what they instinctively want.

Then fate steps in.

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.*

A Daddy for Kinkmas, by Reese Morrison

Naftali doesn’t want a Daddy.

Naftali has tried depending on a Dom before, and it didn’t work. He’s too messy and irresponsible to be a full-time sub, so it’s much safer to stick to hook-ups and scenes.

Even if it’s never quite enough.

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. He’s too awkward and insecure to practice with just anyone, but when the compelling and submissive teacher of his first workshop appears in his life again, maybe he can finally test out being the Daddy Dom he was always meant to be.

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?
