Vicious Waltz, by JS Harker

How long can Zack pretend to belong to Roger’s world?

Zack Wright should be happy. He has a hot boyfriend and a mission that will turn him into a vampire hunting legend. All he has to do is put his training into practice. But his charmed life is rife with problems, the greatest of which is Roger’s reluctance to form a plan to tackle their target.

Roger is stronger than he’s ever been. Months of recuperation in Taliville have given him a freedom he hasn’t known in centuries. The prospect of taking on his sire is suddenly daunting, but his time in paradise is running out. If Roger doesn’t take control of the coven, he’ll have to endure his sire’s cruelty. And so will Zack and countless others.

At the last moment, a new addition is made to their conspiracy. Takashi Sato is a polished vampire who has a history with Roger. Seeing a charming man cozy up to Roger, Zack wonders if he truly belongs at Roger’s side. Can he keep up his masquerade as Roger’s pet? Will Roger find the courage to face his nightmares? Or will both misstep into a destructive oblivion?

Vicious Waltz is 128k novel featuring a hunter out to prove himself and an angst-ridden vampire. Also included: hurt/comfort three hundred years in the making, a slow-burn poly relationship, spicy vampire bites, and villains that are as hot as they are evil. Though the novel follows parameters typical in stories of its genre, readers may want to review the content discretion page at the front of the book. Reading in order is strongly recommended as the story follows the same lead characters and is designed to unravel in a rewarding way, but hey, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life.

Voir Dear, by Marie Sinclair

Who says jury duty has to be a bore?
Cameron:

Jury duty is a complete waste of time. One, unfortunately, I have already had to endure four times in the past nine years because I am one of those lucky people who gets summoned every two years like clockwork. Do not get me wrong, I think jury duty is an important part of the judicial process which is why I am prepared to report for my fifth summons. Even if I still think it’s a waste of time. My mood isn’t improved by the dreary February weather in which I’m forced to wait, nor by someone bumping into me and sending my coffee flying. But when I turn to vent some of my frustrations on the idiot, I’m met with the biggest, bluest eyes I’ve ever seen.

Tyler:
I’m hurrying up Bryant Street outside the Hall of Justice when I get hit by the most amazing idea for my webcomic and have to write it down. Which explains why I end up blundering into the back of someone already waiting in line and sending his travel mug right into the oncoming path of a truck. My attempts to apologize only deepen my embarrassment, and I slink to the back of the line. But then we not only end up on the same jury, we end up seated right next to each other. I can’t hep but think fate is playing a role in our meeting, especially when it looks like the trial is going to end on Valentine’s Day.

Author’s Note: for the benefit of my readers who may be unfamiliar with the American jury system, the title – Voir Dear – is a play on “voir dire” which is the process by which potential jurors are questioned to determine their suitability for a particular trial. It translates to “speak the truth.”

Are You There, Moriarty?, by AE Lister

Welcome to Maverick Molly’s— for the Victorian sex rebel in all of us.

Toby Dunn has a fun job.

As a server-slash-performer at a newish establishment called Maverick Molly’s— a gaming parlor and kink club in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada— he dons bloomers and a corset to serve drinks and perform burlesque skits for the men who frequent the place. Maverick Molly’s hearkens back to a darker time, when sodomy was illegal and men who loved other men could be thrown in jail, or worse, for daring to be true to themselves and each other. Maverick Molly’s brings all the positives from that period— the daring dress and ribald performances, the joy in safe spaces and the resilience of people who didn’ t let anything stop them— and leaves the negatives in the past, where they belong.

Toby’s life isn’ t all fun, and he’ s determined to move out of the home he shares with his alcoholic mother and keep up his average in his BA program at the University of Ottawa. Oh, and he’ s going to quit smoking… eventually.

But everything changes when charming Alastair Kenney walks up the stairs to the club and invites Toby for a casual hookup at the most prestigious hotel in Ottawa, surprising them both with the intensity of their chemistry.

What happens after that is up to them.

To Catch a Firefly, by Emmy Sanders

He was my beginning. And my never-ending.

Ellis

There’s a lot I’ve never told my best friend. The fact that I love him. That I miss him every day he’s gone. That, sometimes, I ache for him with a ferocity that leaves me breathless.

Lucky Buchanan tore into my life as a boy, wild and daring, my opposite in every way. He drew me in, stole my heart without trying. He hears me, even though I rarely speak a word. But I always knew this place wouldn’t be enough for my free-spirited friend. I knew he wasn’t mine to keep.

So why, when I finally try to get over him, does he sweep back into town? Why is he upset? Why is there tension between us for the first time in years?

I never saw a future where Lucky could be mine. But now, unless I want to lose my friend, I might not have a choice but to tell the truth. My heart belongs to him. It has from the start.

If only I knew how to hold onto a creature that’s meant to fly.

To Catch a Firefly is a standalone, childhood friends-to-lovers romance told in dual POV. There’s epic levels of pining, a neurodivergent MC with selective mutism, two friends who always come back to one another, glass hearts and romantic declarations, and a HEA beneath the night sky.

Noah Wolfe has a secret, and that secret just rode back into town for the first time in five years.

Gabriel Bark was Noah’s first crush—and his best friend’s straight older brother. Maybe it’s the motorcycle, or the tattoos, or the kindness hiding beneath the simmering blackness of his eyes. But it doesn’t matter, because Noah can’t have him.

He thought he’d squashed those feelings down deep, but when Gabe returns to spend the summer back on Harlow Mountain, Noah has to admit the truth. He’s not over Gabriel, even if Gabriel doesn’t know his kid brother’s best friend even exists.

A Mountain Man Walks into His Brother’s Best Friend is a novella for lovers of awkward pining and strong silent types who are slowly worn down by their crush’s nervous chatter. With bi-awakening and demisexual rep.

Phoenix King, by TJ Nichols

Kill the King of Mont de Leucoy, and his siblings will be released.
It should be an easy job for Malcolm Forrest. He’s ex-army, and hiking through snow doesn’t bother him because he’s a snow leopard shifter. He enters the country on four feet, his plan not formed beyond reaching the castle and getting eyes on the king.

Seeing a phoenix flying through the trees is unexpected, but his curiosity has been awakened, and so has the firebird’s. He follows, but what he finds is a man standing by a fire. A man he believes to be a shifter living wild and in need of some company, which, after days of living as a snow leopard, is rather too tempting.

Escaping his security to shift and fly is one of the reasons Gerrit likes to visit his remote mountain estate. The only shifters he ever finds are those in trouble, so when he sees the snow leopard, he’s happy to share his fire.

When the leopard shifts, Gerrit wants more than words. He’s tired of being alone and unable to connect because of who he is and the secret he needs to keep. He doesn’t expect to see the snow leopard again.

The next time they meet, Malcolm realizes who the phoenix is and how he missed his chance. With a magic-fueled blizzard closing in and no means of escape, he fails to act again. Instead, when Gerrit offers him shelter on his estate and in his bed, he accepts. Even though the lie eats him up. How can he kill a man who cares about his country, his family, his staff, and a stranger so much?

With lives on the line and too many secrets being kept, revealing the truth may be the only way out of the mess…but it will cost him more than his heart.

Explore the hidden kingdom of Mont de Leucoy in Book 2 of the Brothers of Fire series. This book has a lonely king, a desperate assassin, a snowstorm, spies, lies, and plenty of steam created by the phoenix and the snow leopard.
