The Muse, by Emma Scott

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Emma Scott, comes an emotional, paranormal love story of sacrifice, redemption, and the power of love over darkness.


Cole Matheson didn’t think the road to being a successful painter would be paved in gold, but he hoped there’d be a few less potholes. Insidious self-doubt that whispers that he’s no good, talentless, hopeless has him on the brink of despair. Maybe it would be better to just give up.

A midnight visitation by a beautiful creature of darkness changes everything…

Ambrosius Edward Meade-Finch surrendered to darkness centuries ago after knowing only pain and suffering during his short life. Now, Ambri makes humans dance on his strings, feeding on their desire for his own pleasure. But his liege lord questions his loyalty and commands him to bring a human soul into their dark realm.

Cole Matheson seems like an easy mark, but Ambri didn’t count on his goodness, or the depth of his generous soul that wants Ambri just as he is. And Cole never expected to find in Ambri a muse who unlocks his talent and might also be who his lonely heart has been searching for. Something fragile yet powerful grows between them, and the possibility of soul-deep love hangs in the balance, if only they have the courage to reach for it.

But fairy tale endings don’t come without a price. The dark forces Ambri answers to have been promised a soul, and they’re coming to collect…

Climbing to Believe, by F.A. Ray

You’re going to be the death of me.”
“Then I better make it worth it.”

Ty never planned on sleeping with his biggest climbing idol, but when he gets the chance, is he really going to say no?

As a teen, Ty idolized Elijah Reed for coming out publicly. Now Elijah is here watching Ty climb, and it’s everything Ty fantasized about as a young climber searching for his place in the sport. Elijah might be older than him, but Ty won’t let this man slip away that easily.

When Ty invites Elijah out to dinner, Elijah actually says yes, and Ty knows this is his chance. Elijah could be a lot more than a distant climbing idol if he’d just let Ty get close. But the mere mention of competitive climbing seems to open an old wound. Elijah clearly wishes he was still competing.

Why can’t he?

They could have it all — climbing, each other, even a relationship. That is, if Elijah will let Ty in.

Climbing to Believe is a high heat, low angst MM sports romance with an age gap, rock climbing adventures, an idol/fan dynamic, spicy open door scenes and a HEA.

“Bless me Father, for I’m about to sin…” When a bodyguard and a Catholic priest fall in love, is it destiny or the devil at work?

Zayn: From the moment I laid eyes on Carlos Lopez, I was his. Completely and utterly his. If only I’d known then that Carlos would crawl under my skin, sink into my heart, and tether himself to my soul forever maybe…maybe I wouldn’t have allowed myself to fall in love with a Catholic priest.

It’s a sin. The devil at work. And yet…I can’t stay away from him.
Forgive me Father, for I’m about to sin.


Carlos: From the moment I laid eyes on Zayn Brewer, I was in trouble. Serious, life-altering trouble. The second our eyes met I knew it was destiny.

Now I’m questioning if it really was destiny or the work of the devil.
I never should have let myself be tempted. Never should have allowed myself to feel these things. Not when it meant I had to keep a secret.

But Zayn is the most tempting thing I’ve ever known.
Forgive me God, for I’m about to give in.

Zayn’s sin is book #4 in TheDark Reserves series. This book contains a wild & carefree bodyguard dealing with family illness, a sexy but shy priest overcome with loneliness, secrets and lies, lust and longing, and a love that refuses to end.

Demon, by Joel Abernathy

Falling in love with an obsessive serial killer was the last thing on my to-do list.

I was born into a world of villains, so it came as no great surprise when my brothers fell for the most twisted monsters of all. A sociopathic fixer. A psycho sadistic cop whose name belongs in the dictionary next to corruption.

Maybe I’m the one who’s crazy, thinking I could have any semblance of a normal life. The worst part is, I can’t even blame them for my not-so-perfect marriage crashing and burning, or my struggles as a single father. When my young son goes missing and a ransom note turns up demanding a trade for the serial killer my brothers-in-law keep locked in a basement, though?

Yeah, I’m blaming them for that. And I’ll tear the world apart to get my kid back–even if it means keeping Demon leashed at my side.

James is something far more dangerous than Silas and Malcolm. He’s an unhinged, self-righteous killer who’s on a mission to punish the sinners who broke him in the first place.

He’s also my only hope of ever seeing my son again. When you embark on a journey through hell, you want a demon on your team.

It’s when he ends up in my bed that it’s a whole different problem.
