The Cowboy and the Hoodlum, by Jackie North

Bad boy, bad boy, whatcha gonna do when I fall for you?

A job in the valley provides the break Royce so desperately needs from his regular life. Fresh air, plenty of sunshine, and hard work? That’s the ticket. Evenings around a campfire? Sign him up.

But when a new group of ex-cons arrives, ex-cons he’s responsible for, Royce realizes he is woefully unprepared. Not for the task of being team lead, he’s fully capable of that. No, it’s the bad in one particular bad boy that he is drawn to. The challenging mind beneath that messy dark hair, the insouciant slouch, and the long legs in grease-stained blue jeans and disreputable black motorcycle boots.

It’s more than Royce is prepared to resist.

The bad boy in question, Jonah, has a telling I-don’t-care shrug that reveals a heart-stopping vulnerability—and now all is lost as Royce falls hopelessly in love.

A gay m/m cowboy romance with opposites attract, fish out of water, first time, falling for the bad boy, slow burn, endless flirting, birdwatching, and s’mores around the campfire. A little sweet, a little steamy, with a guaranteed HEA.

Rapture, by E.M. Lindsey

It starts with a mugging, and ends with me being saved by the love of my life.

In short, my uncle died and left me everything—which is to say a barely surviving pub with no staff and thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs I can’t afford. It also seemed to come with some strange men, dressed in black, who won’t tell me what they’re looking for—or why they seem so interested in who I am.

But when the tall stranger who walked with a cane and talked with an accent literally saved my life, things got a bit more…interesting.

And a lot more complicated.

I’ve lived in the city long enough to know some secrets are best left buried, but the longer Alonso is around, the harder I fall for those dark eyes and jagged scars. I want to believe that the past is the past, but is there a future with a man who won’t let me in? And if he does open up, will I be able to accept who he was, and everything he’s done?

Rapture is a stand-alone, age-gap, friends to lovers romance featuring dark pasts, bright futures, an alley cat who thinks it’s a ghost, sleepovers, possessive lovers, praise, hurt/comfort, and a sweet, steamy happily ever after.

Sebastian, by Linden Bell

When your wildest fantasies come to life.

Chris Preacher is my idol, my inspiration, my reason for becoming a camboy. He is a legendary adult entertainer, and the last place I expect to run into him is at my new gym, working as a personal trainer.

From the moment we lock eyes, our chemistry is hot enough to burn. I’m drawn to him like a moth to a flame and it feels like we were meant to cross paths.

Only one video—that’s all we agree to do. But as we work together, he becomes so much more than just a silly teenage crush. He’s the missing piece I never knew I needed. Fate brought us together and I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him.

Sebastian is an age gap, nerd/jock, feel-good MM romance between an industry veteran dipping his toe back into the game and an anxiety-ridden workaholic. Expect camera-melting sex, candle-lit dinners, gentle hand caresses, and endless staring into each other’s eyes.

Drowning in You, by Camden Jess

How can a face so punchable suddenly look so… kissable?


Swim in your own lane—that’s the mantra I train by. But then my new college roommate and my rival for our swim team’s relay spot are one and the same: loudmouth playboy Rainer Caraway. I can’t stand him. I can’t escape him. I can’t resist the urge to pummel him off his mega-rich-boy pedestal…

And into my bed.

I’m straight, but labels don’t stick around Rainer. Not even academics, training, and my unprocessed grief can separate us. Soon, hate and lust give way to deeper feelings. Rainer-sized feelings.

Feelings that convince me to swim against the currents of my past. And my pain.


A family name is a legacy—a burden I dodge with every faceless hookup and delirious party. No amount of winning in the pool can wash away the Caraway reputation. Until I’m challenged by one broody, hard-muscled Cloud Stearns.

If this hot-bodied hothead wants to sink my chlorine dreams of being the fastest freshman ever, I’ll give him a chance… If it gets me under his skin. And into his speedo.

Then I go too deep. Deeper than fun times and quick releases. Now, I’m swimming for something more important than the milliseconds between victory and defeat.

I’m swimming for another man’s heart. But am I willing to drown for it?

Drowning in You is a steamy MM college romance of epic enemies-to-lovers proportions with a blend of angst and banter, hurt/comfort, and forced proximity. It is the first in a series of standalones following the Neptune State University men’s swim team and all their HEAs.

I want to keep Griffin for myself, but I have a long way to go before I’m worthy of a man as generous and authentic as him.

Can I convince him I’m the man he’s been waiting for?

Griffin Clarke

I’m just a hopeless romantic searching for my happily ever after. I dream of the perfect romantic night, straight out of one of my favorite steamy novels.

If every other guy I dated for the rest of my life was a total disappointment, I wanted to remember my first time as being everything I’d dreamed of. I was aiming to set the bar high, right from the start. So, I hired a professional to get the job done right. But Cyan isn’t the playboy I expected. He’s so much more.

Underneath his suave swagger and smooth charm is a man I could fall in love with. Will he ever choose me over a life of escorting?

Hopeless For You is a gay male escort romance with an HEA. This sweet heat, friends to lovers story features spicy love lessons, first times, well-meaning friends with terrible advice, and found family.

When a Man Loves an Alien, by Chloe Archer

A grumpy-sexy alien and his (mostly) human mate are just trying to get married for goodness sake! But the road to matrimony is riddled with obstacles that could prove deadly…


Being engaged to my adorable alien boo is a dream come true. Too bad there’s a target painted on my back. Come on universe, quit messing with true love! For reals. Kai and I need to plan our wedding—which is going to be hella quirky and fun, because I say so.

Cue Shilgar the Deadly, who’s screwing up everything—what with trying to kill me and all. My life is becoming even more unbelievable than my fictional characters, Lord Vardox and Captain Starblade.

There’s no way I’m not walking down the aisle with Kai, so help me! I fully intend to ‘get me to the church’—I mean Vegas wedding chapel—on time. This fool of an assassin thinks he can mess with my dreams of wedded bliss? I don’t think so. He’s about to learn he’s met his match in River Sullivan!


My relationship with River is solid and wedding bells are in the air. Unfortunately, other parts of my life are…less stable. Between juggling a highly inconvenient Mating Fever that can strike at any time, and dealing with an investigator from Intergalactic Alliance Headquarters, I’m finding it hard to hold onto my usual equilibrium.

When Shilgar the Deadly finally shows up on Earth, gunning for River, the control I cling to is stretched razor thin. I’m desperate to do whatever I can to keep my mate safe—but I’m not sure if I can.

Yet things aren’t all that they seem. New secrets come to light and we’re all left reeling. Apparently, that famous Earthling playwright was correct when he wrote, “the course of true love never did run smooth….”

When a Man Loves an Alien (Tentacular Tales #3) is a (100k words) M/M sci-fi rom com and the third book in the series. It should be read in chronological order. This installment features an assassin who just won’t quit, little old ladies at slot machines who should NOT be messed with, a zipline action-hero moment, shocking secrets and revelations, a death-defying climax, and just maybe…a zany Vegas wedding? This book has an HFN ending and no cheating. Never fear—there is a guaranteed HEA by the end of the series!

War, by Sienna Moreau

The second Horseman, an Archangel, and a forbidden love. Everything hangs in the balance.

As second Horseman of the Apocalypse, it is War’s duty to fan the flames of destruction started by Conquest. But the answer to a profound mystery about himself—proof of a connection that goes to the very heart of who he is—changes everything.

Uriel, the Archangel of Diligence, must defeat War and stop the Apocalypse from coming to fruition. He won’t allow anything to throw him off course, especially not the Horseman he’d always thought was his opposite—and his enemy—in every way.

Thrown together by circumstances beyond their control, War and Uriel are forced to confront a past they’d both been running from. Faced with challenges, betrayal, and the war brewing between Heaven and Hell, they have a choice to make. Fire and ice were never meant to fall in love, but it isn’t only the bond between them at stake: their very existence—and the existence of the world—hangs in the balance.

War is the second book in the Four Horsemen series. This book is not a standalone and must be read in order.

Content Warnings: Religious themes, extreme violence, gore, and others.

Arachnophobia warning: There is also a dog-sized pet spider named Paul who just wants to be loved.

War is an approximately 90,000-word paranormal, enemies-to-lovers, MM romance filled with snark and morally questionable characters. It ends with a HFN and a mild plot cliffhanger.

Out of Reach, by Rebecca James

Jude English spent his childhood in the foster care system and then on the streets, never having a plan in mind other than where his next meal would come from. When he first laid eyes on Hawk Sterling tending bar at a nightclub, Jude immediately wanted the handsome Navy SEAL. But all he got that night was kicked out of the bar for being underage. Jude was persistent, though, and eventually, he and Hawk became a couple.

Hawk Sterling remembers the day that Jude told him their relationship was over as the worst day of his life. Up to that point, he never realized how much he depended on Jude always being there. It took many sleepless nights and a lot of therapy for Hawk to come to terms with the fact that he’d lost the man he loved through his own blind selfishness.

Four years have passed since Jude abruptly left, and Hawk has come to grips with never seeing Jude again. So, it takes a moment for him to believe what he’s seeing when his boss hands him his next assignment. Hawk knew that Jude had achieved his dream of becoming a model, but he didn’t realize that, until recently, Jude had been dating Sam Prescott–a suspected crime boss. And now, Prescott has put a hit out on Jude.

The smart thing to do would be to hand over the assignment to one of his coworkers at Falcon Security, but Hawk doesn’t trust anyone except himself to keep Jude safe. He might not be able to resurrect the past, but he can save Jude’s life and get him out of the mess he’s gotten himself into. Hawk is determined to do so–even if it costs him his job.

Out of Reach is the third book in the Balls and Brawn Security Series. Books can be read on their own but are best read in order.

Explicit Transactions, by Hayden Hall

I’m the prince of the night; the fulfillment of every one of your desires; the human form of every dirty thought you’ve ever had.

If you can afford me, of course.

Luca DiMarco can afford me. The flashy socialite and the hottest face of the upper echelon, he’s loaded enough that entire weekends with me are nothing more than pocket change.

Luca is relentless. I gave him something in our encounters which he can’t live without. And he’s doing everything in his near-infinite power to keep it. He’s going out of his way to make me feel good.

It almost feels like he cares. And he’s making it really hard to resist the attention.

Boys like me don’t go around falling in love with their clients. They don’t expect a Prince Charming to carry them away. Yet both of those things seem to be happening to me.

But there are greater forces at work trying to tear us apart. And I’m not brave enough to face them.

Explicit Transactions is the third standalone installment in the Destined to Fail series. It features a strictly transactional relationship between one very independent contractor (cough, cough) and one wealthy crime empire princeling who has more in common with his escort than either imagines. Get ready for a rags-to-riches, forbidden romance full of heat and heart, with a guaranteed happy ending.

A Kitten for Daddy, by Wendy Rathbone

Real love comes when you least expect it…


My name is Kolly which is the perfect name for a puppy, but that doesn’t fit who I am. I’m a Cat with a capital C. I never come when I’m called. I love a good scratching behind my ears and just above my coccyx—not what you think; it’s the tailbone. And I’m super flexible and have been able to do the splits since age three.

I want to find someone who is more than a hookup, who will treat me well, but I know it will never happen. Not if I continue the way I am, going to kink parties with my friends and meeting guys who aren’t looking to commit.

I want to live my role, not play it. My deepest secret is, though I’m not a virgin, I’ve never had much satisfaction during sex. Something must be wrong with me. Will I ever find that special one who makes me come alive?


Since my twenties, I’ve always had a daddy thing deep inside me. It’s about control but it’s not about me, it’s about my boy, my pet.

Most boys don’t understand my desire to provide on levels other than materialistic and sex, and see me only as a rich sugar daddy—nothing wrong with that, but those types tend to stray.

I’ve never been in a relationship of total trust and honesty. I’m a man resigned to settling for less than my full needs as a daddy and master and dominant in the relationship, convinced I’ll never meet the right one and be fulfilled.


Can a forlorn and lonely kitten longing for a master and daddy find just the right owner for his needs?

Can a daddy who loves boys and pet play but has never found “the one” succeed in catching the eye of the shy but cutest kitten he’s ever seen?

MM romance, age gap, kitten pet play with accessories, daddy kink, praise kink, super steamy, edging, sweet aftercare, HEA.

A Kitten For Daddy is part of the Pride Pet Play 2023 multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not check them all out? If you like playful pets who are sometimes naughty, Pride parades, and daddies who love their boys unconditionally, you’ll fall in love with our pack!

Chance Encounter, by Luna David

Tate isn’t a savior. And Chance doesn’t need to be saved. Turns out they’re both wrong.

For Tate McKenna, Navy SEAL sniper turned assassin, rescue missions are part of a past he prefers to forget. But the target in his scope isn’t supposed to be choking someone to death right before his eyes. Saving some kid isn’t part of the job and derails his meticulous plans. Disruptions to his schedule make Tate a grumpy bastard and unforeseen complications just piss him off.

To Chance Forester, being forced into a blacked out SUV isn’t much of a surprise. He figures this trip to see his father is just like all the others until the usual beatdown becomes attempted murder. Turns out, the secrets he thought he’d been keeping from his father, weren’t secrets at all and might end up getting him killed.

When the heat of Tate’s anger morphs into a desire to protect and care for Chance, will Chance allow himself to let his guard down? And will Tate be able to keep his boy safe like a good Daddy should while they’re on the run from those who may want them both permanently silenced?

Chance Encounter is a part of the multi-author series The Elite. Each book can be read as a standalone and in any order. What links these books together is The Anonymous, a club beneath the gritty city where only the elite are welcome.

Cuffs & Carnations, by Nikole Knight (narrated by Kirt Graves)

It took one day to strip an Archangel of everything he held dear.

On the battlefield of Heaven, Uriel lost more than his left ear. He lost his Committeds and his will to live. Decades later, he’s drowning himself at the bottom of a bottle, with no escape in sight. He tried to end his misery, but death didn’t take. Resigned to suffering eternity alone with only the ghosts of the ones he lost as company, the last thing Uriel wants is a new love.

It took one day for a hybrid to fall in love with a broken, lost Archangel.

As the hybrid spawn of Lucifer, Jesse isn’t exactly popular with angels; carrying the face of a monster tends to have that effect. So, he keeps his head down and secretly prays for the day someone can see past his golden eyes to the soul inside—the soul desperate for the solace only surrender can provide.

A grieving Archangel searching for hope and a reason to live. A hybrid yearning for a firm, loving hand, and a place to belong. Join Uriel and Jesse as they test the boundaries of love and the infinite limits of grace.

Cuffs & Carnations is a spin-off story within the Fire & Brimstone universe. It can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed after reading the completed Fire & Brimstone Scrolls series. Trigger warnings include: non-graphic mentions of attempted suicide/suicidal thoughts, cavalier commentary/dark jokes about suicide, self-destructive abuse of alcohol and the resulting withdrawal symptoms, and elements of BDSM and kink, including bondage, impact play, power exchange, and light breath play.

Deadly Desire, by Silvana Falcon

A dragon shifter finds his fated mate… in the assassin sent to kill him.

But there’s a deadly catch. Blake is no ordinary man—he’s the familiar of a powerful wizard who owns half his soul, and this wizard isn’t going to let him go. Blake’s master relies on him to execute assassinations for his own gain… and Lachlan is next on the hit list.

Washed Up Former Child Star Ryan Lee, by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock

Ryan Lee is a hot mess.

In another lifetime, Ryan had it all. He was a child star in one of the biggest sitcoms on the planet. Now he’s an adult, unemployed, and a poster child for bad decisions. Okay, so he hasn’t robbed a convenience store yet, but only because he’s always either too high or too hungover. When the opportunity to film a reunion show comes up, Ryan jumps at the chance. He needs the money, but more than that, it might be what he needs to drag his career—and himself—out of the gutter.

Back when Ryan believed in fairytales, he thought he was in love with Chase, and the reunion brings all those old feelings racing back. But it drags up old secrets too. Ryan’s about to learn that, when it comes to Hollywood, the only happy endings are the ones that take place on screen.

Then again, maybe it isn’t a happy ending Ryan needs. Maybe it’s a new beginning.
