Obeying Him, by Rue Whitney

“You know what I love most about pleasure? It tears down all defenses.”

Whatever Morgan “Fitz” Fitzgerald wants is his, and he wants me. But he’s my boss. And one of my father’s oldest friends. And I thought I was straight before I met him. All of that should have stopped me from giving in to this ruthless, guarded man, but I found myself opening my broken heart to him, and now we’re trying to navigate a glamorous and toxic world of New York insiders, billionaires, socialites, and former lovers.

To help me find my place in it, Fitz wants to take charge, break me down, then remake me—but I don’t think I can handle being controlled by him at work, off work, and in a hedge maze of all places. I don’t want to be stuck in a cage wherever I go, obeying someone else’s every command. I want to lure Fitz out of the cage he built for himself, so we can roam free in any world.

Could this be the start of something real (my first relationship with a man and his first relationship ever)? Or will it just be the start of a hopeless addiction?

Luka and Fitz’s story continues in book two of this three-book bi awakening MM romance series. Each book should be read in order.

In His Sights, by K.C. Wells

Random letters belong on Scrabble tiles, not dead bodies. But when a demented serial killer targets Boston’s gay population, leaving cryptic messages carved into his victims, lead detective Gary Mitchell has no choice but to play along.

As the body count rises, Gary gets desperate enough to push aside his skepticism and accept the help of a psychic. Dan Porter says he can offer new clues, and Gary needs all the insight into the killer’s mind he can get.

Dan has lived with his gift–sometimes his curse–his entire life. He feels compelled to help, but only if he can keep his involvement secret. Experience has taught him to be cautious of the police and the press, but his growing connection to Gary distracts him from the real danger. As they edge closer to solving the puzzle, Dan finds himself in the killer’s sights….

Protecting His Pack, by Morgan Elektra

It’s been less than a year since Lane Perkins left his controlling ex and the big city behind for a new job and a new life in small town Watson Hollow. When he meets enigmatic widower Jared Atherton, Lane can’t deny he feels a pull, but there’s no way he’s getting involved with another man so soon.

Jared has enough on his plate as a single father and Alpha of the smallest pack in North America. He’s not interested in a relationship, especially not with the aggravating human teacher who knows nothing of his world.

Fate has other plans however, and when a threat to Lane’s life leads him within the walls of Jared’s estate, they’ll be forced to face their attraction once and for all. But will it be enough to save them both from the wrath of a bitter rival?

Seducing My Brother-in-Law, by Shae Michaels

Playing in the NHL is all I’ve ever wanted and I’ve worked hard my whole life to be able to professionally play the sport I love. I don’t even mind that I have to stay in the closet… much.

But when I wind up getting stranded by a freak snowstorm on the way to my twin brother’s wedding, I barely hesitate to invite the gorgeous young man I just met to spend the night with me. Then I find out I just had a night of fantastic, dirty sex with my new brother-in-law’s baby brother. Crap. Now that I do realize who TJ is… I just won’t let it happen again. Easy.

My life in Colorado… has not been going the greatest. So, when I serendipitously run into Sawyer Brzycki on the way back to Wisconsin for my older brother’s wedding and we wind up stranded together by a fortuitous snowstorm, I decide to give myself the gift of one night with the hot, older, boy-next-door turned professional hockey player, turned my new brother-in-law. The only problem is that it doesn’t feel like one night was enough. But how do I convince Sawyer that the fact that our brothers are married to each other, I live multiple states away from him, I’m so much younger than he is, and that he’s currently in the closet… aren’t really as big of an obstacle as he’s making them out to be? I guess it’ll just be up to me to have to keep seducing him until he changes his mind.

It Spells Trouble, by Andy Gallo

Mage Jannick Pederson thought it was a simple assignment: help the gryphon leader find some missing human children and then go home. A noble cause, even if he didn’t much like the abrasive jerk.

When his father orders him to work with a hot but arrogant mage to find missing human kids, all Conall sees is how it pushes back his graduation date. Again. And even if the mage unexpectedly turns out to be not so bad—and maybe even a little sweet—there’s still no future for them. Conall’s dad has plans for him and they don’t include getting involved with a sexy, infuriating mage.

But fate has other ideas.

It Spells Trouble is a 75K word fated mates romance with a hearty dose of steam and a guaranteed happily-ever-after. This book is part of the Mages and Mates series and includes a plot to destroy the world, a desperate decision with far-reaching consequences, and one pissed off gryphon father.

Garrett Steiner loves his grandmother.


But when she rents a billboard in the middle of Times Square, hoping to find him a husband, he isn’t so sure anymore. Bad enough everyone at the “Crossroads of the World” thinks he’s a joke—now his face is plastered all over the news. He’s already in enough trouble with the principal of his school, who isn’t thrilled to have a gay teacher. It might be two dateless years since his divorce, but no way is he going to answer any of the thousand emails he’s received.

Except….maybe one. The long-haired man with the soulful eyes.

After the devastating loss of his husband, rock star Remi Angel has hit rock bottom. His career is in shambles and he’s spiraling. Fast.
With the media ready for the next juicy scandal, he leaves the limelight behind to return to his roots and spend time with his beloved grandfather. Seeing Garrett’s billboard ad, Remi sends him an email, figuring nothing will come of it, but hey. At least he’s trying.

Except Garrett does answer, and when they meet, both feel that special spark. It’s terrifying yet wondrous, a combination of desire and hope mixed with fear.

The fear of loving again.
Of coming alive again.
This wasn’t supposed to happen.

But anything can happen in a New York minute…even love.
In a New York Minute is a slow burn, rock star, M/M romance filled with longing, doubt and swoony moments. There are love songs, a secret identity, a wise, bagel-loving grandpa, and an unrepentant bubbe who knows what’s best for her grandson.
It answers the question: once in a lifetime can’t happen twice…or can it?

Party of Three, by Alex Silver


My dreams of a career as an artist are too big to let a little thing like love derail them.

Funny how it takes a drag show to reach inside my soul, show me a glimpse of who I truly am, and bring my two best friends into my life. After a lifetime as collateral damage to Mom’s serial monogamy, I never thought I’d have room for the inevitable heartache of romance. Yet I can’t help myself when it comes to the two men who mean more to me than I ever imagined possible.


Coming out is never easy, but staying in the closet is crushing my soul.

I’ve known who I am for most of my life. Jewish, drag king, trans man, teacher, brother, son, uncle. But rejection and fear have kept my truth locked up inside for years. Drag gives me my one safe outlet to be myself, but it takes Pia and Gregor’s unwavering support to find the courage to embrace every part of myself. They give me the strength to step out of the closet and the drive to fight for love.


Some days, getting out of bed seems like more than I can manage.

My mom was my rock for most of my life. Single by choice, she showed me that family is who we choose. She is the reason I went into nursing, the reason I fell in love with drag. When I lost her, it seemed like my entire life fell apart. Depression consumed me. It isn’t until I meet my online best friends in person that I truly relearn how to live. Now I’m hoping the three of us can become the family I’ve longed to rebuild ever since I lost mine.

Party of Three is an M/M/X nerdy contemporary romance with two trans leads who have different experiences of what that means for them.

Where They Belong, by L.C. Chase

If they can’t put the past behind them, they won’t have any future.

Mason Hayes has a problem. A big one. Surprisingly, it’s not the death threats that have become increasingly serious since he turned his legacy Colorado cattle ranch into a wild horse sanctuary. No. It’s far worse. It’s torture in the form of one rugged cowboy turned personal bodyguard hired to be his shadow. A boy he loved now all grown-up gorgeous man. The one he’s never been able to forget.

Colt Stonebraker has a problem. Not only is he back at the ranch where his and his brothers’ whole lives were upended, but now he’s been hired to protect the same man who broke his young heart. With too many suspects out to get Mason, Colt won’t turn his back on him—like Mason had done to him—but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. Colt is there to do a job, and as soon as it’s done, he’s gone. So, what if being back at the ranch brings up all his youthful dreams and unwise temptation? It’s not like he’s going to fall for Mason again . . . right?

Blaze, by RM Neill

Whoever says money can solve all your problems is a damn liar. It only creates unnecessary headaches and does nothing to erase bitter memories.

Deep down, I’m still the same guy I’ve always been. No matter how many zeros are in my bank account. No matter how far I run, or how much richer I become. Where I came from will never change.

I’m tired of pretending. It’s why I’ve come back to my hometown. To the simple life, to clearing my mind and finding the balance that’s always just out of reach.
No suits, no city living, no cheats and liars, and definitely no complications.

But the funny thing is, there’s a situation I wasn’t prepared for. The ranch hand on my best friend’s farm with a shy smile and talented hands. River is easygoing, confident and carefree, my total opposite.

Maybe an unexpected complication is exactly what I need to make things easy again.
Maybe finding my way back to who I truly am is easier if I’m not alone.

I don’t need much to be happy.
I have my job at Broken Horn Ranch, my custom furniture building on the side, and a standing date to dinner with my dad every Friday night.

Life doesn’t need excitement or fancy adventures to be fulfilling. Things are completely good just the way they are. There’s no sense toppling my perfectly balanced apple cart.

But I wasn’t expecting the tall, dark, and handsome man who arrived at the ranch on horseback and sent my comfortable, ordinary world spinning.
Blaze is the boss’s best friend and a part owner of the ranch. His brilliant smile masks his hidden troubles, and if I had a few pennies to spare for his thoughts, I’d spend every last one.

Maybe I don’t have everything I need after all.
Maybe I need him.

Blaze is the second book in The Broken Ranch series and can be read as a standalone. Expect to find two men in their forties remembering what it’s like to be kids again while falling in love, a new hobby making spoons, an abundance of romantic gestures and a super swoony sleigh ride.

Never Have I Ever: Wanted my Brother’s Rival, by Willow Dixon

“Why is the one person I hate the only guy I can’t stop thinking about?”

West, my older brother’s high school rival. The rich kid who has it all. The guy who disappeared six years ago and destroyed my brother’s life.

I thought West and I were friends. I trusted him, but he showed me I was nothing more to him than a means to an end.

Being twenty and in my last year of college isn’t easy. Neither is being a virgin. I’ve never been normal or felt like I fit in, and I don’t feel what I’m supposed to.

My online job has given me the perfect way to solve my virginity problem, but then the last person I ever wanted to see again shows up on my doorstep. Not only has West learned what I do for a living, he’s essentially my landlord.

I hate him. So why can’t I stay away from him? Why is he the only person I’ve ever felt a connection with, who makes me feel like there’s something in me worth wanting?

Eli and West’s story is an enemies-to-friends-to-lovers romance between a former bad boy who seemingly has it all and an awkward genius who’s never felt like he fits in. Expect lots of banter and hot first times as these two try (and fail) to stay away from each other. It is the fourth novel in the steamy Never Have I Ever series but can be read as a standalone.

His, by Daniel May

Lucas Russo was never a child. He was raised like a soldier, trained like a dog to hunt his master’s enemies.

Shane Case was barely a man. Unraveled by grief, he kidnapped two children to follow in his footsteps, to shape in his image and continue his mission of vengeance.

Lucas never forgave Shane, because forgiveness is something reserved for the living. So is hate. With Shane gone, all Lucas has left are hot, guilty memories he denies to himself as he continues the hunt alongside his brother. Many things in Lucas died with Shane — desire was not one of them.

But Shane is not dead.

Now Lucas hunts his old warden, seeking Shane’s ghost in both dreams and waking world, haunted by memories of his fists, his mouth, his cruelty. And more than haunted, Lucas is hungry — hungry for answers. For a reckoning. Hungry for the love of the man who stole his childhood.

His is part one of a dark, age gap MM duet.

LonelyCollegeBoy, by J. Allen Grady

LonelyCollegeBoy: Yeah, that’s my profile name on a regionally popular LGBTQ+ dating (or hookup) site, CockyUnicorns. Kinda sad, right? Kinda is an understatement. And it’s weird for me, because I’ve always been the upbeat, optimistic one. A lot of people call me “sunshine,” either as a compliment or with a groan. I hope they don’t notice that’s not me right now. Ever since things started to go wrong, I’ve been losing hope, day by day. When I came out, my parents cut me off. My whole life I’ve been working toward this college degree. I don’t know where I’m going to live next semester or if I can afford to stay in school at all! And I can’t talk to anyone about it but my best friend BJ, but now she won’t stay out of my business. Maybe I can at least find some stress release on CockyUnicorns?

Alex: I’ve got the life I want. My job pays well, I’ve got a few close friends, and I’m in great shape for my age—which is creeping up there day by day. My daughter is awesome, doing well in school, and mostly stays out of trouble. Everything is going according to the plan, which is awesome. Right? So why do I feel every day like something is missing? Like my life plan is more of a trap than a path? Like there’s this hole in my heart I’ll never fill? I keep promising myself I’ll reexamine the plan and revise as necessary. I’ll put myself out there, and maybe even come out if I can find the guy to make it worth the trouble. Later. Always later. But when I get too lonely, there’s always my trusty app, CockyUnicorns.

As they each turn to CockyUnicorns to find a pleasant diversion, will they end up finding their missing pieces in each other? Or, as worlds collide, will opposites repel rather than attract. The meddling BJ may have something to say about that!

Brooks and His Bear Mechanic, by Lorelei M Hart and Colbie Dunbar

A hitman and a fae walk into a café…

Callum always gets the job done—whether he likes it or not—but this job isn’t like any other. The target’s too young and pretty for comfort, and the clients are offering more threats than cash. And either the target poisoned his hot chocolate or he’s going crazy, because magic trees are suddenly a thing. It’s really not his day.

Linden’s on the run, and the human realm’s a good place to hide from evil sorcerers who think he’s the answer to a prophecy. But his enemy has found a way to send a very human and very dangerous assassin after him—a man who could kill Linden with one hand. He should be terrified, but his knees go weak for all the wrong reasons.

When Linden’s family is taken hostage, Callum ought to be the last thing on his mind, but Linden can’t resist the chance to fulfill his deepest fantasies before sacrificing his own life. Callum knows he should walk away—it’s not his fight. But the beautiful fae is under his skin and now protecting Linden and his family feels more important than his own survival.

A human learning to feel. A fae learning to trust. Can two worlds merge into one true love?

This re-release of Brought to Light has a new cover and has been partially rewritten, but the characters and the ending are the same. This book contains explicit scenes, a magic flashlight, a prophecy that doesn’t quite work out the way anyone expects, and a guaranteed HEA.
