Reactant, by Aurora Crane

When the chemistry between the five men explodes, the stakes get even higher.

Jericho Rowlands has spent most of his life living under different names, doing the dirty work required to keep Sydney safe. His time as Warren Boiler had put him on a collision course with Sebastian Devlin—the lawyer who kept him out of jail when it all went to hell in a handbasket—and also brings him into contact with the three men who are such an important part of Sebastian’s life. Jericho is only supposed to be keeping Sebastian alive; that’s easier said than done when chemistry like he’s never felt before flares between him and all four men—four men that he definitely shouldn’t want to touch so much.

Quinn, Peyton, Will, and Sebastian have the weight of history and mistakes and missed opportunities between all of them, making an already-complicated situation harder. None of them can deny the magnetic pull holding them together as they try to muddle through what their new normal will look like. Jericho isn’t supposed to be part of it, but they can’t ignore their instant connection with him when he falls into their orbit.

The past has led them to where they are, but the threats of the present could end any chance at a future they might have. Sebastian and “Warren’s” names are on a list, and everyone else on it is dying one by one. Quinn is racing against the clock, and unless he can figure out who’s gunning for them from the shadows, the future they’re fighting for could be out of reach. Quinn and Will are standing on one side of the law, Peyton and Jericho hold the other, but even that might not be enough to keep Sebastian out of the crosshairs.

Reactant is a 100,000-word MMMMM romance that ends in a HFN. It is Book 2 in an ongoing series that follows the same five men and their relationship.

Clean Slade, by Rhys Everly

“I told you I wouldn’t let anything happen to you and I intend to keep my promise”


Our first encounter took my breath away.
Ten years later, he’s acting as if we never met.
As if we never kissed.

But the past has other ideas.
The man I’ve been hiding from has found me and he will stop at nothing to exact his revenge.
And Slade is here to protect me.
I never forgot about him, but I can’t tell him that. I can’t let him in.
And he can’t find out the truth about me. No one can.

Welcome to Mayberry Holm, a small island in the Atlantic full of crime, secrets and happily-ever-afters, and the ex-Navy SEALs that come to deal with them all.

XOXO, by Christina Lee

Lark Levitt doesn’t belong at Roosevelt College, at least in theory. Most students who attend the private university come from wealthy families, and Lark is only a scholarship and a bus ride away from the trailer park where he lives. It’s also a dream come true because dance is his life, and their program is one of the most prestigious in the country. But there are bumps in the road, like running into someone from a difficult time in his childhood. Someone who now pretends he doesn’t exist.

Henry Albrecht survived childhood cancer and is now a Roosevelt quarterback and model student. His past is something his father insists Henry keep private, and though his dad has his reasons, it makes his remission feel like a dirty secret instead of a triumph. He has few precious memories from that time in his life, except for a kid from the hospital who made his recovery manageable. A kid who’s all grown up now and at Roosevelt, jeopardizing everything Henry’s carefully kept under wraps.

They decide the best course of action is to keep their distance. Easier said than done. Their renewed connection brings solace, clarity, and a raw intensity that awakens a spark between them. But hiding their history is exhausting, and soon enough their secret meetups are in danger of being exposed. Henry will need to face his fears—and his father—or lose the only person who’s ever understood the real him.

Garbage, by Reese Morrison

Evan isn’t brave.

But when he hears a group of Human Firsters attacking a garbage collection bot, he has to step in. He rescues an undiscovered SPARK, a self-aware robot who’s never experienced life outside of his collection route and the miserable, gray trash depot he’s assigned to.

Evan wants to help. But he might have underestimated just how cute Quincy can be. Or just how difficult it would be living with a sexy robot who’s exactly his type. But if Evan couldn’t get his crappy exes to stick around, how could he ever capture Quincy’s interest?

Quincy loves flowers growing in sidewalk cracks. He loves making food in Evan’s kitchen, even though he can’t eat it. Oh, and jokes. Quincy loves jokes. He’s kind of even getting good at them.

But most of all, he loves Evan.

As Quincy settles into his new life, he can’t escape from prejudice against SPARKs. Evan is everything he wants, if only he can stay off the Human Firsters’ radar long enough to win his love.

Garbage is a hurt/comfort story with a cuddliest android you’ve ever met and a sweet, submissive man who wishes he were good enough to deserve him. It has sloth jokes, a kidnapping, an android trying to figure out humanity (and paperclips!), body positivity, and kinky fun with some extra robot appendages…

The Stablemaster’s Heart, by Sarah Honey

Mother Jones has spent his life working hard, running the royal stables at Lilleforth, and watching on fondly as those around him fall in love and lust.
But nobody, man or woman, has ever stoked that fire for him—right until the new royal groom barrels into his life. Vasily is all sunshine smiles, golden hair and laughter. For the first time, Mother finds himself attracted to someone, and he can’t help wondering what it might be like to court—and bed—his handsome new groom.
But Mother is over thirty, rough around the edges, and hardly a catch.
Vasily couldn’t possibly return his affections—could he?

Vasily Petrov, the fourth son of the king of Koroslova, is travelling incognito for a year. In Koroslova the old ways are the only ways, and a man being attracted to another man is unthinkable—especially if you’re a prince. But in Lilleforth, Vasily has the chance to spread his wings and explore the side of himself that he can no longer deny, and he intends to make the most of it.
Except, he’s falling for his stablemaster—and worse, Mother doesn’t know he’s a prince, and Vasily doesn’t know how to tell him. And the longer he waits, the more he fears losing what they have when the truth comes out.

This was not the plan.

Fumbled Past, by Cecelia Storm

You missed the biggest goal of your life… How hard will you have to play to get him back?

The media are terrible. All I want to do is play football. I never knew going pro would be such a public pain in the ass. Speaking of asses, that annoying new team mascot looks familiar… or at least his body does. Wait, that can’t be who I think it is… uh oh. How am I going to focus on repairing my public image and playing the new season with my ex running around in a Seal outfit? And not just any ex… the one I never got over.

Being a professional NFL mascot has a lot of perks, but the sheer amount of sweat in that suit is not one of them. So when the entire team caught me in the buff struggling to get a seal mask off my head, I thought I would just lay down and die. But who’s that guy scowling at me from the back? No, no, please don’t tell me… This was supposed to be a stealth job so I could make some money while building my non-profit and social media following. Now the guy whose heart I broke is on the same team? I may not survive this…

Fumbled Past is a second chance MM sports romance and book 2 in the San Diego Seals series.

Just what did they do last night?

The Goldilocks Principle, by Hope Irving

One summer, two men chasing a fresh start, and three meddling Bears. What could go wrong?

Fairytales are overrated. At least, I’m tired of experiencing their dark side. Must be why I hate my nickname: Goldy.
My summer vacation is the perfect excuse for a fresh start. Sea. S*x. Sun.
The irony isn’t lost on me when I meet three burly, colorful, and furry men—known as Bears—who quickly become friends and confidants. Yet, it’s a bi-curious voyeur who piques my interest and provides the ideal distraction.
Spellbound, Tristan and I agree to give our insane attraction a try. I’m left wanting more, but we’re on borrowed time. I shouldn’t get my hopes up.
I know very little about him, and there’s no such thing as Prince Charming in my fairytale, right?

My fairytale life is a lie. I’m privileged, but everything the public thinks they know about me is a charade. I need a breather and flee the French Riviera to enjoy some anonymity and visit my American friends and relatives. There, a gorgeous blond male turns my life upside down, eliciting feelings that I’ve never allowed myself to acknowledge. We’re not meant to be for more reasons than I can count. Even if we were, dragging Eli into the limelight wouldn’t be fair. Some secrets are better left unsaid… unless he is worth the risk.
Can summer promises heal past wounds and lead to a lasting future—and our happily ever after?

Inspired by the classic fairytale Goldilocks & The Three BearsThe Goldilocks Principle is a contemporary bi-awakening M/M romance with low angst and a French flair.
It features:
– a lonely guy yearning for a fun vacation, and slightly impulsive tendencies
– a confused French-American celebrity hiding from the world and labels
– 3 protective and colorful Bears welcoming guests in Provincetown, Massachusetts
– a hot summer deal and a happily ever after fairytale ending!

The Goldilocks Principle is part of the Ever After series with stories inspired by classic fairytales. Each story can be read as a standalone, but why pick just one when you can experience a whole world of fairytales?

All the Queen’s Men, by Chara Croft & Harlow Hayes

When your bestie is too shy to go after what he needs, the obvious answer it to drag him along as your fake boyfriend when you’re hired as entertainment at a swanky London hotel. And no, bitch. That’s not just my way of sneaking in the chance to finally kiss his sweet lips before I find him the Daddy he needs.


I’m too much for most men, but their loss. If they can’t handle my fabulousness out of drag, meeting Miss Diva D. Light is guaranteed to send them running. The one man who adores all of me is my bestie, Isaac… and yes, bitch, I’ve thought of going there. I can’t do it to him, though. He’s shy and sweet and pure as the driven snow, if you catch my drift. He deserves someone who can take care of him, and that can’t be me. Not the way he needs.

What Isaac needs is a Daddy, and since he makes me want to be stupidly selfless like that, I’m going to make it happen for him… even if my inner Diva wants to throw a hissy fit of Drag Race proportions at the thought of giving him up.


Secretly being in love with your best friend isn’t just dumb, it’s hopeless. How do I know? First, because this is real life, not a romance novel. Second, because Jules is fabulous, and I most definitely am not. And third, because he’s trying to find me a Daddy. And Jules? Jules is definitely not Daddy material.

But even if the idea of a Daddy sounds perfect, nothing can be perfect if it means losing Jules.

The job offer from a rival finance firm would have been an automatic no for me if it hadn’t come from an old friend who understands what’s missing in my life. Hell, who am I kidding, it’s still a no. I’m happy where I’m at, content with my life in New York City, and have no interest in living in London. Still, I won’t say no to letting them fly me out there to take a look… at least, not after my friend—another Daddy—mentions that there will be an event relevant to our mutual interests while I’m in town.

And attending a weekend just for Daddies and boys, sponsored by the kinky dating app, Cuffd? I’ve just about given up on ever finding a boy who truly suits me, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still looking.

All the Queen’s Men is a fabulous m/m/m Daddy-kink romance with too many cherries, the perfect amount of boys, and an excessive number of platform boots. (Just kidding. Obviously, there’s no such thing as too many pairs of platform boots.)

This book is part of the Destination Daddies multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but there are so many destinations and Daddies to discover, why not grab them all?

The Human Pyke, by April Kelley

Taylor Kramer is out of options. If he wants to survive, he has to rely on the very people he once hunted—the paranormals. The government wants him dead and the paranormals scare him. The last thing he needs is a mate who shifts into a cougar.

Marshall Pyke isn’t looking for love. He comes back to his hometown because his family and clan are in deep trouble. Saint Lakes is in the center of a war with a man bent on destroying every paranormal in existence. When the new farmhand turns out to be his fated mate, sparks fly. Too bad he’s also the enemy.

When Taylor’s asked to work for the paranormal council, he knows he has a lot to prove, especially to Marshall. If Marshall wants to protect his mate, he’ll have to break a few rules.

The Human Pyke is the romantic eleventh book in the MM Paranormal Romance series Saint Lakes. If you like men with hearts of gold and hard-nosed cat shifter cops, then you’ll love this enemies-to-lovers novel.

Buy The Human Pyke and see just how sensual a cougar shifter can be.

Just when we think we have a new lead on the drug dealer targeting extraterrestrials on Earth, we run into a major roadblock. And the longer this mess of an investigation drags on without answers, the less I like it. Outside of work though, things are going amazingly well with my adorable mate–dear galactic gods, how did that happen? But with an ex back in my life wanting to be friends again, and the threat of a potential assassin looming, things are getting a little complicated. I love River with both my hearts—and all five tentacles—but even I’m worried I might not be able to protect him from the dangers ahead. Also, I need to figure out how the heck I’m going to propose to him. River deserves something “epic,” and I don’t want to let him down. Am I going to be able to deliver?

And possibly an epic proposal? This book has an HFN ending and no cheating. Never fear—there is a guaranteed HEA by the end of the series!
