MATTY
Chad and I were childhood best friends, but we haven’t spoken for years.

I’ve been struggling, as an artist, as a single dad. But lately, I’ve needed something more.

Then, out of the blue, Chad messages me. Did I want to go away on a camping trip, like the old days? Is he forgetting what happened between us before? I haven’t.

CHAD
I just wanted some fun, the sun on my skin, now my marriage is over.

I’m a guy’s guy, a straight guy, a success. But when we go up to the mountains, things feel different.

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve never felt a connection like I have to Matty…

Punk-In, by Ava Olsen

Brodie: My rock band has reached the pinnacle of success but fame has its price. Sooner or later, people let you down or sell you out. Except Ivan Cross. My manager, my muse, my obsession. There’s nothing in this world that I want more than Van.
And I always get what I want.

Van: Four years ago, I was selected to manage a hot new band called Wayward Lane. I knew I was in for an exciting ride – and a world of trouble – and it’s all because of their lead singer, the provocative Brodie James. We’ve always butted heads but lately, that tension is higher. When Brodie insists on an impromptu concert in New Orleans at Halloween, I make it happen. The city, the food, the music, it’s intoxicating. So is Brodie, and I’m not sure I can resist his pull any longer.
Even though Brodie could have anyone he wants, all he seems to want is me.

Punk-In is a bi-awakening, age gap, workplace, MM romance filled with sizzling chemistry, an unforgettable Halloween concert, and a HEA fit for a rockstar.

Kicking it with my Fake Fiancé, by Riley Long

It’s going to take drastic measures to make my musical dreams come true and see my name in lights. As luck would have it, the opportunity of a lifetime just popped up. The trashy reality TV show Destination Love is holding auditions.

I can’t think of a better partner for this adventure than my best friend, Matty. He needs to earn his citizenship and further his career as a travel writer. I want fame and notoriety. Together we could be unstoppable.

Matty and I agree to fake a relationship and play up a passionate love affair for the cameras. Yet somewhere in the middle of the producer’s manufactured drama, we realize neither of us are pretending.

As things begin heating up behind the scenes, Matty and I find the happiness we’ve both been seeking in each other’s arms. Can our pretend love turn into something real? Or, will our opposing dreams tear us apart?

Too Hostile, by Nicole Dykes

Fletcher
I’m a total nerd, but I look like a jock. I had a perfect GPA in high school, and my GPA in college is perfect too. I smile when I’m supposed to smile. I have two loving parents and a brother and sister who are always by my side. I’m the perfect all-American guy.
But the only thing that actually defines me is the before. The things I keep hidden deep inside because I’m too afraid of losing what I have now.
The past lives deep inside me as I force the plastic smile on my face. And no one sees through it because I’m just that good.
No one except . . . him.

Ronan
Every day is like a dream. A dream I live, not knowing when I’ll wake and find I’m still living in a nightmare.
I never made it out, and these past few years have all been fake.
Then he walks into my classroom . . . with that cocky smile in place. Not a care in the world. I doubt he’s ever had to worry about a thing in his entire life.
He’s exactly like all of the entitled, spoiled brats I teach every day in my part of the college campus, but something about Fletcher Moore really rubs me the wrong way.
I shouldn’t let him get to me, but something about him makes me too angry. Too annoyed.
Just too damn . . . hostile.

Little Boy Toy, by Wendy Rathbone

A little who is rumored to be ace and a man who says he isn’t a daddy are drawn together by powers greater than the roles of the kink club where they meet. How in all the worlds can they make it work?

Kendry: I’m tired of the daddies who leer, who only want hookups, who don’t see the real me. I still want the social life of the kink club, but I decide to stop dating for a while. I enjoy dressing as a little and going to the club’s book corner to read. I can still have my juice and snacks and see other littles.

Then he walks in. I’ve never seen him before in the daddy/little playroom. He’s too big, too much leather, too much muscle. He comes straight to my corner and wiggles himself into a short, kid-sized chair right next to me. Staring straight ahead, hands folded over his chest, he looks so lonely. I start to read to him.

Zale: In all my years coming to the club, I’ve never bothered with the littles room. First of all, I’m not a daddy. Second, the bottles, the diapers, the pacifiers—all fine and good, just not for me. But I’m tired and need a break. My usual kinks aren’t doing anything for me. I don’t want hookups these days. I’m ready to settle down. I want someone just for me.

Now, looking into the littles playroom, it seems like a nice place to take a break. To relax. Here, there will be no expectations. No come-ons, no stupid pickup lines. I can just sit and watch the pretty boys play.

There’s a sweet little sitting in a corner quietly reading a book. Perfect. I’ll sit over there with him while I reassess my priorities and what I want from my life.

Alpha Dragon’s Ferret is a fun, sweet mpreg novel featuring a headstrong alpha dragon, a timid omega ferret, and twin shenanigans.Reading the series in order is recommended. No cheating, and fluffy HEA guaranteed!

Earth Boys Are Easy, by C. Rochelle

Micah

What’s a superhero to do when his own family sees his powers as unimpressive and he’s fifth in line for the throne?

Set my sights on getting space married to a hot alien, of course!

For science.

Ziggy Andromeda is a skinsuit-stealing mercenary who’s so far out of my league he might as well be in another galaxy, but there’s nothing I love more than a challenge.

And his spaceship has only one bed!

Unfortunately, a home planet conspiracy is threatening our besties-with-benefits situationship, along with my dream of putting a Saturn-sized ring on it and locking Ziggy down for good.

Rude.

I came for a deep space adventure with my hot-bod bodysnatcher, and I intend to complete my mission, no matter what.

For science!

Ziggy

Out of all the supes on this sad little floating rock, Micah Salah has impressed me the most.

I’ve never let anyone as close to me as he is—for their protection and mine—but I can’t seem to resist Micah’s gravitational pull.

Plus. he smells like goddamn candy.

He probably tastes like candy…

No. Bad Ziggy.

Unfortunately, this superpowered Earthling has not only joined me on assignment but in my bed. This wouldn’t be a problem if my true form hadn’t already claimed him as my mate, even though I suspect I’m nothing but a temporary detour on his intergalactic travels.

Too bad I’d rather live inside him.

Permanently.

I’m determined to respect Micah’s personal space, even if the forces conspiring against us make me want to tighten my tendrils and never let him go.

Because he’s mine.

Forever.

Blood and Bone, by  Patricia Logan

Aristotle Brown is starting to like his new job with the U.S. Marshals Interspecies Response unit. If anyone would have told him vampires, shifters, werewolves, and space aliens existed a few months ago, he would have called them crazy. But meeting his new partner has proven to be the best part of the I.S.R. He’s settling into the new job and the new man nicely. When he moved out to Los Angeles from Lexington, Kentucky a few months ago, he thought he might try finding a guy, but he never expected to feel that way about his new partner.

Eoghan Sapphire thinks Ari is beautiful and brilliant, and that’s probably a good thing since they spend a lot of time together. Very quickly, he realizes that the feelings he’s having for the man, aren’t purely professional. He wishes things would slow down but when work gets in the way, he realizes they can’t stop moving…not even for a minute. On the way to Northern California to help the local tribal police locate a fugitive shifter Eoghan once put behind bars, he and Ari drop in on a friend before coming face to face with a couple of unexpected predators. And if their life wasn’t crazy enough, a few insulted cephalopods give chase.

Better still, a case involving a vampire with a very unusual oral fixation, has both of them grateful for the blood-sucker’s restraint. Just when both men think things might settle down and there’ll be an end to the madness, they’re tasked to meet a couple of the scariest shifters they’ve ever heard of. And just to put a cherry on top of the assignment, it turns out these guys aren’t exactly the forgiving kind. As Eoghan and Ari enter a world neither could have prepared for, they come face to face with something thought to live only…in legend.

The Jock, by E.M. Denning

Colby Bennett is straight.

At twenty-five, he’s the middle of three boys raised by a single father. He’s always been a jock, so managing a gym feels like his calling. If only being a big brother were as easy. When Colby stumbles on his younger brother trying on feminine clothing, Taylor is angry and embarrassed. Looking for a way to make amends, Colby seeks the help of a new gym member whose eyeshadow and shimmering lips capture his attention.

Milo Kennedy is recently single.

Having broken up with his boyfriend, he’s trying to reclaim the person he used to be. Ashamed that he let someone take so much away from him, he’s determined to find himself again. The last thing he needs is another gym-bro in his life, but Colby seems sincere in his mission to help his brother and Milo can’t make himself say no.

Being around Milo has Colby questioning if he’s actually straight… or if there are things he still has left to learn about his own identity. But even though he can’t stop thinking about Milo, he knows better than to make a move. His little brother needs someone like Milo and Colby doesn’t want to do anything to jeopardize their budding friendship.

But as Colby is exploring and embracing his sexuality, and Milo reclaiming the pieces of himself that he lost to a bad relationship, they discover they might need each other despite their reasons for hesitating. Will they learn that the best things in life are worth taking a risk for?

Gatherdawn, by Lee Colgin

When the worlds of a prince and a gargoyle collide, the bond they forge is stronger than stone.

Zenith

I stand watch, cold as the rock encasing me, immortal, forgotten, lonely. Until one bright festival evening, when a young prince from a faraway land catches my gaze… and he sees me. My heart springs to life like a bloom in the early morning light. For the first time in centuries, someone knows I’m real. I’m here.

Prince Anash

My mother is a queen, but my father is an incubus brothel worker. Where does that leave me? Half-breed by blood, demon by nature, and a loner by necessity because no one, absolutely no one, will have me. In a last-ditch effort to find a suitable match, Mother drags me to the Gatherdawn, a spring festival of bounty and fertility—or bullies and frostbite, if you ask me. Which nobody ever does.

The trip is tedious, and I’m tempted to give up until I lay eyes on the most handsome creature I’ve ever seen. A gargoyle, standing guard in stone form, who keeps returning my stare, ogling me from across the ballroom so shamelessly it’s a wonder his overseer doesn’t scold him for being distracted.

But when I work up the courage to speak with him, he gives me the cold shoulder.

Just like everyone else.

* * *

Gatherdawn is a high fantasy gay romance set in Colgin’s Fae Realm of Luminia. It features a grumpy gargoyle and a lonely half-breed prince. Despite all odds, they might find comfort in each other. Add a dash of secrets, first time flying lessons, and spicy opposites-attract chemistry, and you’ve got a steamy gay romance carved in the very heart of stone!
