Who’s also his ex—and his best player’s father.

Pierce Langley-Brown has a lot of regrets. The biggest? Leaving Matt behind two years ago when his son needed him. Now, with his son on Matt’s hockey team, there’s no avoiding the man who once owned his heart.

Salacious Park Avenue Prince, by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Who are we? Like you even need to ask. We’re the seven richer-than-sin legacies causing debauchery at the prestigious Astor University in Manhattan.
Some call us spoiled.
Some call us trouble.
But everyone calls us the Park Avenue Princes.

Travis McKinney
“The Outrageous One”

Or, as some of my fellow Park Avenue Princes like to call me, the Manwhore of Manhattan.
Act like a sex god, dress like a sex god, be a sex god. In my opinion, these are fantastic life goals. I have no idea why my parents think I have no direction.

I’m the fun one. Easygoing. A massive flirt. I get along with just about everyone, except…


Caleb Reeves.
Also known as “the Bane of My Existence”

He’s everything I’m not: Focused, effortlessly sexy but straight, and an ex-Park Avenue Prince. Or the “Pricks,” as he likes to call us now.

Our rivalry is legendary. Putting us within a hundred feet of each other is just asking for trouble. But no one other than the two of us knows why or how it began, and we plan to keep it that way.

The unspoken agreement is that Caleb keeps to his side of the city, I keep to mine, and we avoid each other at all costs.

Which would be great, except we have to see each once a month at family dinner.

Because Caleb isn’t only my arch-nemesis, he also happens to be…my stepbrother.
Salacious Park Avenue Prince is the fifth standalone novel in the Park Avenue Princes world.

Meet You In The Waves, by Aria Brennan

AJAY
No one expects to be abandoned the day before Christmas but that is exactly where I find myself when my mum cancels our summer holiday to be with her new husband. Not wanting to spend the break alone, I jump at my best friend’s offer to join him at his family’s beach house.
The only potential hiccup? Dane’s lazy, beach bum older brother, Nick, will also be there.
Except Nick is like nothing his younger brother has represented. He’s a welcome breath of fresh air, a man who lives life to the fullest and who calls to me in ways nobody else has ever done before. Oh, and did I mention how good he looks on the back of a surfboard?
As far as I know I’m totally straight and it’s easy to mistake attraction for admiration. But then the lightbulb suddenly flicks and I can no longer deny how much I want him.
I’m hooked and falling fast but we both have exes – my manipulative, slightly stalkerish high school sweetheart and his devastatingly beautiful supermodel ex who just so happens to be Nick’s best friend – who aren’t quite so thrilled about letting us have our happily ever after. Besides, this was only meant to be a summer fling. Right?

Meet You In The Waves is a light hearted, low angst, bi-awakening love story featuring one sweet music student and one maybe not-so-sweet best friend’s brother and an explosive love found on a hot and humid Australian beach. Come for a dip and stay for a while.

“You will remain here until you learn what love is.”

Trapped in the light court’s prison, Doyle will never know the meaning of love. When luck summons him to the human realm to “take care of” Parker, he grasps at the possibility to finally escape.

This isn’t the first attempt on Parker’s life, but it’s the most creative. His ex tried to summon a demon and landed a fae prince instead. Too bad the prince is trapped in a glass cage for eternity. When Doyle drags Parker to prison with him, the death threats don’t stop with the location change. Now everyone in the fae realm wants Parker dead, too!

Parker’s not into Doyle, or anyone for that matter. The coin must have been unlucky-side-up when it paired them together. Still, Doyle is desperate to honor his promise to take care of Parker. Only true love will free them both from the fae menagerie.

The Fae Menagerie is a male/male high romantasy between an imprisoned fae prince playboy and a demisexual human virgin. This forced-proximity slow burn romance features versatile characters, fated mates, lots of hurt/comfort, snark, spice, and a happily ever after!

The Fae Menagerie is a part of the multi-author series, Fortune Favors the Fae. From spicy to sweet, zany romps to epic adventures, there’s something for everyone in this mystical series. Discover destiny and true love and follow the coin on its fickle journey to the next world and a new magical adventure. Each book can be read as a standalone and in any order.

Pippin & Nacho, by Courtney W. Dixon

He was my very survival. Without him, I was nothing.

Pippin (Sampson)

I’m broken, hiding my pain behind fake smiles and pretend joy. Inside, I’m a mental mess between being tossed into conversion therapy and foster care as a kid. I struggle to focus and suffer anxiety, panic attacks, and nightmares. My passions for skateboarding and bartending make me happy enough. But only Nate, my former foster brother and best friend, calms me and keeps me going forward. I’m not sure what I would do without him. Even worse, I secretly love him. Loving him could mean losing him.

Nacho (Nate)

I’d been in and out of foster care for as long as I could remember. My last home was with Sam. We quickly became friends, and I instantly went into protective mode. After Sam got hurt by our foster father, I took Sam out of there and watched over him for two years while living on the streets. When you spend a lifetime not being wanted by anyone, you crave being needed, and Sam needs me. But I secretly love him. I’ve told my friends I don’t want to ruin my friendship with Sam. The truth is if we don’t work out, I won’t be there to take care of him. Sam’s needs are more important than my feelings.

White Rabbit, Silver Fox, by Rowan Amaris and Theo Behr

Twenty years of longing. One night of passion. What could go wrong?

Twenty years ago, rabbit-shifter Wyte was trapped in the fae realm as punishment for taking a human lover. He didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to the human, Tommy. Since then, he’s drifted through the years, telling himself he’s silly and rootless and not heartbroken at all. But when Wyte gets a chance to return to Tommy for a single night, he takes it. One perfect night, and he’ll be over it.

Wyte has one problem. Tommy thinks he’s dead. And Wyte turning up on his couch, having not aged a day, isn’t helping. Still, Wyte’s determined, and Tommy always was a sucker for his pout. Surely they can get back to how things always were. Only, Tommy isn’t the closeted, immature man of Wyte’s memories. Oh, he kisses with the same rough passion. But there’s silver in his hair and new warmth in his smile. And his kindness, the way he treats Wyte with indulgence and understanding, is more than Wyte can bear.

Because this is just one night. Come sunrise, the fae realm will be waiting. And Wyte will never see Tommy again.

White Rabbit, Silver Fox is a second-chance HFN romp with no cliffhangers. It features an indulgent former tough guy turned retired softie and a silly, playful rabbit fae with far more depth than he’s entirely comfortable with. There’s snark and dry humor out the ears, enough spice to make the eyes water, and reconciliation after too long apart. This is a standalone novella in the Fallen for a Fae series. Each book follows a different couple (though we do love cameos).

Capricorn Faces Scorpio, by Anyta Sunday

On a quest for long-lasting love, Capricorn? It may be just over the rainbow.

Grappling with a storm in his heart and feeling like a general failure, Carl Birch flees his problems at home and swaps lives with his ‘successful’ twin brother. Stepping into the shoes of an accomplished professional pianist adored by the locals feels like a breath of fresh air: he’s revered, admired, and described as ‘talented’ for the first time ever.
It feels good, but it’s also complicated. He can’t actually play the piano to save himself, and everyone he meets wants him to play, and teach, and tune, and give motivational speeches at school assembly . . .
If that’s not enough, the local heartbreaker has his dark, judgy eyes on him—eyes that seem to know. But also to understand. And, vexingly, to suspect Carl has joined the hordes of groupies swooning after him!
To get out of this spiraling mess, Carl will have to face things—both at home, and in his heart.

Buckle up, Capricorn. You’re about to undertake a journey of heart, mind, and courageous spirit.

Free Me, by Beck Grey

Narrated by Gary Furlong

A gender-fluid cutie, a workaholic hottie, and a hookup gone right.


Blake

No romantic relationship could ever compete with my dream job. Sure, it gets lonely, but that’s what occasional hookups are for. Work-life balance? Who cares? I certainly don’t. Until chest pains bring me to my knees and land me in the emergency room.

It’s a wake-up call I can’t afford to ignore.

When my well-meaning family encourages me to make some major life changes, like hiring a meditation and physiotherapy coach, whatever that is, I’m worried enough to agree.

Imagine my surprise when my practitioner turns out to be the hookup I haven’t been able to forget.

Stef

What’s a fabulously vivacious gender-fluid beauty to do when stress is high and Prince Charmings aren’t lined up at their door? Head to the club to recharge my sparkle on the dance floor. I have no intention of hooking up with anyone. Hookups are not my thing.

Then I see the slightly older hottie in the Tom Ford suit, and all my self-restraint goes up in a blast of glitter.

When it turns out he’s my new meditation client and my friend’s older brother, I’m sure the universe is messing with me.

Because mixing business with pleasure is a huge no-no.

So why does my heart keep shouting yes?

Free Me is a low-angst, opposites attract, worlds collide, contemporary LGBTQ romance about a hookup gone right. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA

Christmas Lane, by Amy Aislin

It’s recent college graduate Zach Greenfeld’s favorite time of the year and he’s just received a temporary gig planning Lighthouse Bay’s Christmas parade.

But his new job starts off in disaster when the most important float—Santa’s sleigh—gets damaged.

Holland needs to win the Lighthouse Bay Christmas parade float competition in order to grow his new dollhouse-making business. The prize is an article in a major city newspaper, and nothing beats free advertising. Except, eager to help the adorable parade organizer, he volunteers to help fix Santa’s sleigh, leaving no time to work on his own float, and putting his prize at risk.

Damaged floats, snowstorms, and a last-minute parade emergency force Zach and Holland closer than ever. All they need is a little bit of Christmas magic to help them realize they belong together.

*Christmas Lane is a sweet, May/December, small-town Christmas romance with an HEA!*

Silent Partner, by Morgan Brice

A psychic moose shifter. A handsome guy who is psychically silent. The chance for a fresh start, and a threat from the past that might get in the way.

Brandon Davis is a psychic and a moose shifter. He makes his living as a wilderness guide in Fox Hollow, NY—a town that is a haven for misfit shifters and psychics. Brandon has a profitable business, a found family of close friends, and a cozy cabin in the woods. Life is good, but he wishes he could find a special someone to share it with. Then he picks up the unmistakable scent of his fated mate–a handsome man who isn’t a shifter of any kind and whose thoughts he can’t read. The chemistry is undeniable, but can he fall for a silent partner?

Riley Henderson escaped a bad relationship with an ex-boyfriend he suspects is a psi-vamp. He left town and got a scholarship to the Fox Institute to explore his rare ability—his thoughts are mostly closed to being read by psychics. Getting away from his ex was worth being studied for his unusual silence as a “nil” or an “immune.” Especially since the situation comes with a stipend, an apartment, and a regular gig as a musician at one of the local hotels. Riley intends to go boy-sober until he meets a tall, dark-haired stranger with whom he has a sudden, intense connection. When he realizes Brandon is both a psychic and a shifter, Riley needs to figure out how they can overcome those differences to be together. And in the back of his mind, Riley worries—what if his ex shows up to ruin everything?

Silent Partner is a MM shifter romance filled with found family, a snarky moose, a soulful musician, sexy shifters, small town winter fun, fated mates, helpful psychics, lots of snow and a very happy ending.

Service Before Self, by J.L. Gribble

The biggest threat to their love story isn’t just military regulations. It’s their own history.

As Alex counts down the days to a massive promotion, he hopes it will allow him to improve the life he shares with his sister and finally make up for her sacrifices during his childhood. The two of them have lost enough to know they are the only family they need.

Falling for an officer might screw up all his carefully laid plans.

A year after leaving his ex, Finn still struggles to live life on his terms. One unexpected hookup changes everything. Seeing the sergeant in uniform the morning after should have been the end of it, but their tentative friendship soon turns into something more.

That Alex sees the best in everything may be a feature, not a bug, but Finn has been burned by military relationships before. When Finn’s ex-husband discovers their connection and threatens their future together, they’re forced to decide whether their growing bond is worth upending the lives they’ve worked so hard to build.

Alex already has one foot out the door, and Finn is trapped by his past.

They’ll have to challenge family, uncertainty, and the U.S. Air Force to make this work.

Service Before Self is an M/M contemporary romance featuring grumpy/sunshine vibes, a forbidden(ish) relationship, and unconventional heroes—because the other 99% of the military deserves love, too. This is a standalone novel with a happily ever after and no cliffhanger.

Hammering Hearts, by Alex Danvers

It’s been years since Jake Rasmussen and the Pine Point Fixer Uppers crew worked a job together. What used to be a successful project now brings in little more than coffee money. Years of drifting apart, moving away, and at least one messy breakup split them all apart. It would have taken a literal miracle to get them all back together in the same room…or a juicy offer to host their own home renovation show.

Quinn Benson has a house full of grief. After his grandfather passes away, he inherits the property where he grew up, along with his grandpa’s overwhelming hoard. When he stumbles into a call from a new show, looking to fix up people’s houses, he seizes the opportunity. It’s only when the crew shows up and they dive head-first into the problem that reality slams down onto him. Sorting through a lifetime of memories is one thing. Doing it with a hunky, blond carpenter over his shoulder is more than he bargained for.

Jake isn’t a permanent fixture. The show will whisk him off to another city in a few meager weeks. Quinn’s not ready to open himself up to a relationship with an obvious expiration date. Yet each time they try to keep a reasonable distance, they crash back into each other. Jake is light and goofy and always ready to lend an ear. Quinn is stark and serious, and just like fixing up a house, Jake can’t resist trying to dive in and help. As they tear open the walls and expose everything, they’re either going to find something sturdy, or see that there’s too much rot to build anything.

Furious, Luca returns to New York intending to eliminate every single one of their enemies. Then – at last – Finch will be safe.

But with a mole spilling secrets and shadows from the past creeping up behind Finch, can they ever truly be safe?

Secrets & Sake, by CJ Ravenna

Jinta
He’s a yakuza with secrets. I’m the reporter determined to bring them to light.

When people start going missing, I sense a story that could make my whole career. I even have the perfect suspect: Raiden Noboru, enforcer for the most powerful yakuza organization in Japan.

The plan is simple: go undercover as “Hiro” the photographer, cozy up to Raiden, and discover all he knows about the disappearances.

Problem is? Raiden isn’t the monster I thought he was. The beast beneath his skin is fiercely protective of what’s his, but he worships my body and soul, showing me a tender side of himself he hides from the rest of the world.

But I’ve got a story to tell. All I have to do… is betray the man I’m falling for.

Raiden
I stopped believing in fated mates long ago. Love only ends in heartbreak.

Ever since I was a boy, my only purpose has been to serve the Namikawa-kai.

Until him. The minute I see Hiro smile like a sunbeam and catch his cherry blossom scent, I’ve got to have him. What I thought would be a casual fling becomes so much more. Hiro is mine. Mine to care for, mine to protect. No one else can have him.

Before I realize it, I’m beginning to dream of a life outside the yakuza, a life with Hiro. Too bad that’s all it’ll ever be. A dream. I’ll never make someone as innocent as Hiro happy. I’m a criminal, and I’m no good for him…

…But I can’t stay away from him.

Secrets & Sake is book 1 in A Paranormal Yakuza Duet. It features insta-love, fated mates and wolf shifters, a sunshine undercover reporter and the grumpy yakuza soft only for him, loads of possessive touch-him-and-die vibes, plenty of searingly hot spice, and a Happy-For-Now conclusion.

Searching for Shelter, by Morticia Knight

Rich aches for more than a book boyfriend to love. But is the mysterious, rugged admirer he serves at the coffee shop too dangerous to consider?

After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for romance?

Diego enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue at The Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport-climbing spots, and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.

Rich isn’t so sure about the rough-looking Diego, no matter how hot the guy is. But once he gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary events begin to happen.

After Rich is injured in a bizarre accident, it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.
