Shadowfall, by Iris Foxglove

It is said the demon in the well will give you your heart’s desire…for a price.

When Declan’s prince and best friend, Arwyn, goes seeking the demon for himself, he surprises Declan by leaping into the demon’s well. But when Declan pulls him out, it isn’t Arwyn he rescued, but a demon wearing his skin. No one believes Declan that Arwyn’s soul has been corrupted by the shadow in the well, and with Arwyn taking up arms against the king’s fleet by becoming a pirate, all that matters is stopping him.

When Arwyn offers him a terrible bargain, Declan agrees, hoping it will finally give him the truth about what happened to his prince…and a chance to find the man he’d loved since childhood.

But Arwyn isn’t a demon. He’s a god, and he is very, very good at knowing what people really want. He is convinced that for Declan, it isn’t the prince who went into the water that has captivated him…but the shadow that came out of it.

One for the Road, by Kate Hawthorne

Max

I left St. Jack’s Bay ten years ago and haven’t looked back once. Unless you count all the times I close my eyes and think about Rome Anderson kissing me on the water tower or all of the firsts we shared in my cramped teenage bedroom. Being in love with Rome as a teenager was serious and scary, so I did the only thing I knew how to do—I ran.

I should have known it would only be a matter of time before life called me back to the small town we grew up in, and also back to Rome who’s never left. I’m only home for a week and the two of us are fresh out of firsts, but neither of us seems to be against the idea of sharing some last times together instead.

Rome

I’ve never stopped loving Max, but over the years, I’ve definitely started to hate him. At seventeen, I got left behind, but it worked out okay in the end. I own the only bar in town, I date when I want to, and Max’s twin sister Lydia is my best friend. Life isn’t what it was supposed to be, but it’s not horrible.

Max is back now and taking him to bed was a terrible idea because it’s not long before I don’t hate him at all. I love Max and I want him to be mine, but we’ve both been here before. I know it’s only a matter of time before he breaks my heart and heads back on the road, leaving me—and our future—behind once again.

One for the Road is a small town, second chance romance that proves sometimes absence does make the heart grow fonder.

Reigniting Chase, by Jeanne St. James (Jack Calihan and Lance Greenfield, narrators)

An unexpected collaboration between two authors that’s hot enough to spark a fire…

Chase

After an excruciating loss, I’m desperate for a fresh start.
Away from the painful memories.
Away from everyone I know and anyone who knows my story.
That’s how I end up in Eagle’s Landing, Pennsylvania.
As a bestselling author, my main reason for moving to a remote mountain cabin is to overcome the writer’s block that crushed my creativity for the past two years. My hope is to rediscover my words in the quiet, small town where no one knows me. Or my past.
A place where I can blend in enough that I become invisible.

Rett

Even though Chase, one of my favorite authors, insists he wants to be left alone, I refuse to let him wallow in whatever’s drowning him.
As a local bookstore owner and author myself, I’m intrigued by the man who’s a master of the written word. Unfortunately, his social skills could use a lot of work.
Even so, I’m determined to pull the irritable and frustrating man out of the dark pit he’s fallen into and back to the surface, no matter how hard he fights it. I only hope dragging Chase down that fiery path just might reignite his spark and that I don’t get burned in the process.

Infinite, by Charlie Godwyne

I’m on the run, leaving behind everything I’ve ever known.
I’m on the run, on a blessed path that leads me straight into their arms.

In 2026, Oliver Smith emigrates from the United States to Austria, to start a job as an editor for Boutique Press. Anxious, tired and broken, he hallucinates an angel comforting him on the plane. Ollie assumes it was a dream, but the Catholic contract lawyer Moritz who picks him up at the airport assures him that angels are real.

As Ollie builds a new life on the other side of the world, working his job while trying to keep himself together and hold his shadows at bay, he meets Bryn, a young man who practices a secret magic and sings gentle prayers to the sunset. Bryn is married to Moritz, the same contract lawyer who helped Ollie settle in and who keeps showing up and cooking for him in the evenings. But things have gone wrong: Bryn and Moritz are separated, pending divorce.

Ollie and Bryn fall fast together, becoming best friends, and as Ollie gets to know Moritz’s caring heart he realizes he has feelings for this beautiful man, too. It’s clear that Bryn and Moritz still love each other. As Ollie works to bring them back together, he finds himself being healed in return and drawn into their loving embrace.

Infinite is the first book in the Sky Nymph series and is a 50,000-word MMM romance with magical realism, patient angels, typewriters on bicycles, and lots of espresso. Although Infinite takes place in the magical Vienna of the Augarten series, it can be read as a standalone.

Oh Buoy, by Ava Olsen

Andrew: I’ve traveled the world as a yacht steward for the past year, trying to outrun a broken heart and a mountain of debt. Then a gig as a chief stew on board a yacht in the Caribbean comes my way. The timing is right, the weather is perfect, and the pay is desperately needed.
There’s just one problem…

My billionaire boss, Rowan Carter, is way too distracting. With his charming British accent and sarcastic quips, Rowan commands all my attention and none of it is focused on work. I prepare to meet another entitled jerk when I step on board his ship, but it turns out that Rowan is the exception to the billionaire rule. And I get a first-hand glimpse of the kindhearted man behind the money.

The professional line between us melts away but I’ve been badly burned by a workplace relationship gone wrong. And Rowan and I live in two very different worlds. I can’t – shouldn’t – fall for Rowan Carter.

Oh boy. Too late.

Rowan: I run a real estate empire but being in the top one percent isn’t all fun and caviar. The family business has struggled these past two years and now the one place that was my refuge may be taken away from me. Add to that, I’m a target for the paparazzi because of a former relationship. I’ve never felt so alone. Lonely. Unmoored…

Until a dreamy American named Andrew Slater walks aboard my ship and into my life. Andrew takes delight in answering my snark with sarcastic retorts and his wit is matched by quiet acts of kindness.

Falling in love is an unexpected voyage for both of us. Unless the press gets wind of our relationship, and then all bets are off.

But I fight to win, because Andrew is the most important deal of my life.

Oh Buoy is a boss-employee, friends to lovers, MM romance filled with tropical locations, spicy banter and swoony moments.

Apex Predator, by Cara Dee

The Game Series • Book 11 • Primal Play • MMMM • D/s • Second Chances • Hurt Comfort • Vacation Romance
Pack your sunscreen and strap in for a wild ride and a kinky vacation that doesn’t go as planned.

Lane Sawyer had no complaints. Not really, anyway. After all, he’d just been invited to spend a week down in sunny Florida with his amazing boyfriend Macklin and some of his kinkster buddies. That was exactly what Lane needed. Uncomplicated fun and the promise of no drama—and hopefully a close encounter or two with the apex predator of the Everglades, the Burmese python. He loved, loved, loved reptiles.

But Florida was home to more than one apex predator. When Lane arrived, he found himself face-to-face with their host for the week, his high school girlfriend’s dad. The man who’d once made Lane realize he was into men.

Macklin McKenna couldn’t wait to get away. The problem was, he needed a vacation from himself more than DC. But maybe a week in South Florida with his friends and his adoring boyfriend Lane could distract him from the fact that he was never getting over the man he was still technically married to.

Unfortunately, Macklin’s friends were fed up with his personal agony, and they’d ensured another apex predator was on his way down South.

The Game Series is a BDSM series where romance meets the reality of kink. Sometimes we fall for someone we don’t match with, sometimes vanilla business gets in the way of kinky pleasure, and sometimes we have to compromise and push ourselves to overcome trauma and insecurities. No matter what, one thing is certain. This is not a perfect world—and maybe that’s why the happily ever after feels so good.

The characters in the Game Series cross over in multiple books, as we follow not only new love interests but the background friendships and dynamics of a thriving kink community. The story of Lane, Ty, Macklin, and Walker begins here—but if you’re interested in secondary characters and the Mclean House journey, you won’t regret starting at the beginning.

Unicorns are supposed to sparkle.

Alpha Roscoe works from home creating jingles for ads. It’s a lucrative business, and he works as much or as little as he wants. But recently, he’s taken to doodling on scraps of paper, and without giving it much thought, each time he’s drawn a unicorn.

Intrigued, he heads to the local library to research the mythical beasts where he meets an elderly man named Mr. Lucas and his blue-haired nephew, Harry, who regale him with tales of unicorns.

Harley is an omega unicorn shifter. He lives a solitary life because unlike wolves, bears, and lions, his mythical beast sets him apart from others. Until he meets a dragon shifter and his nephew and they get to talking.

Intending to meet his new friends at the local library, Harley wanders around checking out books. But neither the elderly man nor the younger one with blue hair turns up. Instead, Harley bumps into an alpha and everything falls out of the alpha’s bag, including his unicorn sketches.

Harley takes fright, and it’s up to Roscoe to convince the omega it was an accident. But was it, the alpha asks himself.

Make Mine A Unicorn is the sixth book in the M/M mpreg shifter, sweet-with-knotty-heat series. It features an alpha who can’t stop thinking of unicorns, an omega unicorn shifter wanting to connect with people, a pair of matchmakers who use unusual methods to achieve their matches, a cute baby, and a happy ending.

Old School Discipline, by Misha Horne

A slacker with a record and a bad attitude. A possessive bully with a very firm hand. A dorm room that can barely contain the heat.

I never planned on continuing my pointless education. But then I got arrested. Again. Hey, if those laptops weren’t meant to be stolen, they should have been locked up better.

Somehow, my latest stunt and lousy attitude landed me in Redwood Academy. An exclusive university where they’re supposed to turn screw ups like me into upstanding citizens. Or some crap like that. But, okay, fine, whatever. Still sounded better than jail.

So, what’s the problem?

Well, let me name a few. The dean’s got it out for me, because I might have broken a fairly big rule on day one. Gotta make an impression, right?

The troublemaking twink across the hall is obsessed with me, and his overprotective boyfriend doesn’t like that very much. What can I say? It’s hard looking this damn good.

And then there’s Bax.

My obnoxious new roommate has a vicious sneer and massive biceps, and a past no one will talk about. I hate him like hell. Except when I don’t. When he uses those strong hands to punish me in ways I’ve never dreamed of, hate is the last thing on my mind.

Oh, did I forget to mention the spanking?

See, Redwood’s all about the old school discipline. And, apparently, so am I. Because getting bent over and spanked by my roommate is pushing buttons I never knew I had. 

Any normal person would be planning a jailbreak, I guess. Believe me, I’m tempted. But I’m starting to think I might actually belong here. Even worse, I think I might want to belong. 

To Bax. 

And that’s definitely a problem.

———-

Old School Discipline is an enemies-to-lovers college romance with lots of steam, lots of kink discovery, and lots of spanking. This book includes angry, annoyed action between roommates who can’t stand each other and absolutely refuse to believe they could be perfect for each other. No matter how much they like fooling around.

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…
