Second Chances, by RB Bartels

Within one year, Danny lost everyone. His husband, his parents, and his birth mother. No way was he ready to jump into another relationship, but he longed for a friend, and Andrew appeared at just the right time. Then his dead husband’s brother shows up and demands the estate, saying, “you ain’t family.”

As a teen, Andrew spent several years on the streets, homeless and hungry. If it weren’t for his best friend Amber, he wouldn’t have made it. When Amber got pregnant, he helped her through the birth and care for a newborn baby boy. Then she died. He placed the baby in foster care, cleaned up his life, finished his education, and looked for the happiness and security he missed as a teen.

Phil’s bad luck was always the fault of everyone else. He was determined to get his dead brother’s estate from Danny in any way he could. Then he discovered his old street buddy Andrew was part of the picture.

How could Danny and Andrew thwart Phil’s plans and keep themselves safe, especially with two little boys in the picture?

The Nature of the Game, by Amy Aislin

Six years ago, an ultimatum forced Dan Greyson to make a choice that cost him everything he loved most. One of those things? His boyfriend, hockey player Ashton Yager. Now that they’ve crossed paths again, Dan isn’t about to let the opportunity slip away. Ash’s reappearance in his life is just the catalyst Dan needs to escape the rut he’s fallen into…and win back Ash’s trust and love.

Ashton Yager, once burned and now a little bit shy, didn’t mean to publicly come out as bisexual. But now that he has, he’s got to deal with the consequences, including the fact that it might’ve cost him his NHL contract. With his job on the line, he needs to keep his head down, work hard, and play the best hockey of his life. Rekindling things with Dan? That’s not exactly keeping a low profile. It’s also never going to happen, not after Dan walked away once without an explanation.

When a hurricane forces Ash to seek shelter out-of-state, he and Dan find themselves in the same B&B, where old feelings resurface. But with everything Ash has on the line, does he dare play with fire again?

Baby Blue, 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.

Friend or Mistlefoe, by Ariella Zoelle

The only thing worse than Mingo not living out his Christmas rom-com fantasy is having his sworn enemy be the one to make all his holiday dreams come true.

Creekside Township Rivals, by JT Fader

Three HEA stories set in Creekside, a sleepy little town, where rivalries don’t generally occur due to the leadership of the East Creekside pack. This boxed set follows the love stories of three brothers, dedicating a book to each. Lots of knotting, MPreg, and of course love.

Lucas’ Omega: A small town offers more than an opportunity to start again.

Adam is running from a bad breakup, severing bonds with the pack of his birth. He heads to the small town of Creekside to set down new roots. There are two wolf packs in the area, but Adam has no intention of joining either one. That is until he catches the scent of his fated mate lingering on a new friend. He struggles against the need he feels for him. He wants to run to him but doesn’t want a mate. Especially this one.

Lucas is reeling from the loss of his chosen mate and unborn pup. He’s the leader of his pack and he needs to make sure his family’s electrical business continues to thrive. An Omega interloper threatens to disrupt the customer relationships they’ve been nurturing for three generations.

As the Alpha leader, Lucas knows he needs to chase the Omega wolf out of town. The business will suffer if he stays in Creekside. Only one problem. He wants him. He fights the urge to go after him and claim him even though his inner wolf is screaming, “Fated mate!”

Will two rivals be able to put their differences aside and submit to their fate?

Jonas’ Alpha: A new rival comes into Creekside with a business that threatens to impact the success of Jonas’ restaurant. And the owner is human. How will Jonas and his pack react to this latest interloper?

Jonas is plagued by sadness. His life has left him feeling unfulfilled. He puts on a brave face but inside, he has given up on ever being truly happy. He distracts himself by rutting with every willing male wolf or human. As an Omega, he’s convinced that’s all he’s good for.

His other distraction is his restaurant. It’s the only one in town. He serves humans and wolves alike, the menu offering full human meals and wolf meat-only options. His hackles go up when a rival moves into town and sets up a bistro right across the street from him.

Damon drove through Creekside once years ago and the peaceful town called to him. After spending a couple of years more in the city, he feels it’s time to make the move.

Unfortunately, the president of the town council lied to him when he told Damon there were no other restaurants in Creekside. The owner of the other restaurant is rightly upset. Damon isn’t deterred. He wants his business to succeed. And he’s willing to compete.

There’s only one problem.

Will the draw they feel to each other disrupt the rivalry they need to keep their businesses afloat?

Alphas’ Omega: When the world holds prejudice against your love, how do you move forward?

Bryant finally has his pack and his family back but he hasn’t returned to Creekside alone. He’s brought a friend he’s been traveling with in wolf form for the past 5 years. Unsure if Adam has truly forgiven him for what he did to him, Bryant attempts to set down new roots.

Grayson has been without a pack for most of his life. Deciding to follow Bryant for 5 years felt like having a pack. Two Alpha males living together has peaked some eyebrows over those years. Rightly so. It’s Grayson’s unrequited heart that keeps him at Bryant’s side.

Hunter has never mated before. He has a fantasy of having two Alphas at once break his virginity. As an Omega, he also dreams of finding his mate someday and having pups. Encountering two Alphas who appear to be close sets his fantasy in motion.

Is this going to be a one-night stand or has fate got other plans?

The Siren’s Song, by Crista Crown

Ever since Len realized most people are more in love with the idea of having sex with a siren than who he is as a person, he’s given up on love. Hook ups, friends with benefits—that’s fine. But romance is definitely off the table.

It’s too bad he didn’t tell Max that before they slept together—for both of them. Hot, nerdy, human Max who captured Len’s interest with just a glance. Because Max doesn’t do meaningless sex. It’s all or nothing for him. So in spite of it being one of the hottest nights of Len’s life, there will be no repeats.

It’s also too bad Havenwood is very small and they share a friend group. Because it’s not like they can just ignore each other and pretend it never happened when they’re constantly running into each other.

And it’s not like Len can just stand back and watch when Aria, a vampire who’s been alive far too long to not have removed the stick from her behind, starts trying to stir anti-human prejudice with Max as her main target.

Even so, Len is determined to keep Max at arm’s length. Or at least at shoulder’s length. Though really he just wants to be pressed up against the human with as little between them as possible.

Len can totally be friends with Max without benefits. He has plenty of friends without benefits! Just not ones he can’t stop thinking about in bed…

Oh rivers, this is going to be a problem…

Obeying Orders, by Matthew Dante

Rian Lassalle

42, Muscle Daddy, enjoys putting Brody in his place and showing him who the real alpha dog is on this crew.

Running from your past can be painful. I moved to Jersey, hoping to find some peace and perspective. Instead, all I found was an annoying man-child who thinks that he’s God’s gift to women. Seriously, the arrogance of this man is astounding. If he thinks he can continue to disrespect people while I’m around, the boy clearly doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. There’s a new Alpha in town, and I’m about to show Brody what I do to those who misbehave.

Brody O’Connell

32, work for the O’Brien Crew and have my own auto shop. Oh, yeah, and I’m tough, muscular, and sexy as sin.

Don’t hate me cus I’m hot, and my biceps are bigger than your head. I’m an Alpha. A top dog. Women want to lay with me, and guys want to be me. It’s a simple fact. Some of us have it, some of us… well, that’s not my issue to worry about. Everything was going great until my boss decided I needed a… partner? A boss? A glorified babysitter? I don’t exactly know what Rian’s role is supposed to be. All I know is that he thinks he’s the top dog. Just because his muscles are slightly bigger than mine, and he happens to be a head taller, he seems to think that I’m going to lay down on my back and let him take me… any way he wants… ordering me around. Come to think about it, why do I keep getting turned on whenever he gives me an order? Perhaps, I’ll keep that last bit of information to myself…

This is an MM Dark Romance involving bad men doing bad things.

The Trust, by C. Azzo and M. Grano

A dirty cop full of daddy issues falls for his criminal handler. Could this cruel hitman – 22 years his senior – be the one to fix him? And can they protect each other from the dangerous cartel they work for?

Jacob Rossi is a skilled young officer with the Ladena Police Department, but his moral ambiguity and lack of care for the job drew him into a world of crime years ago. Riddled with self-hatred, he exists in a state of perpetual numbness, until he starts working more closely with the cold, seemingly emotionless Dimitri Moreno, a sadistic enforcer of a criminal organisation called The Trust.

Dimitri is an expert in detachment, which has made him capable of doing unspeakable things, but he soon realises that he cannot detach from his feelings for Jacob. The clever, guarded cop unearths things inside him he never thought possible and never thought he could want. After years of feeling like a monster, Dimitri suddenly feels painfully human.

Can their intense, highly irregular love survive the demons that surround them? Can they?

The Trust contains an age gap, mature scenes, a lot of angst and fluff, and a HFN ending.

***
