Void Dancer, by Amanda Meuwissen

A brilliant inventor, Enzo Dragonbane has plenty to hide, including his secret identity as the recently deceased king’s bastard son. But he’s not half as mysterious as Cullen, the man he finds in the caverns. Cullen has no memories at all.

Cullen doesn’t know who he is or how he got there, and he certainly doesn’t know anything about his strange shadow powers. But he soon learns that memories or not, magic or not, the Ruby Kingdom stands on the brink of civil war. A lower-class group called the Ashen is poised to take advantage of the power vacuum caused by the king’s death to fight for equality.

Soon Enzo and Cullen find themselves in the midst of a revolution. As they untangle Cullen’s past, they discover they have much in common. But if they’re to have any hope of a peaceful life together, they’ll have to discover the secret of controlling Cullen’s abilities, take sides in the coming fight, and face up to the truth of who they really are.

Finding Mr. Fabulous, by Con Riley

Featuring a duke-to-be with a problem and a thief who could be his solution. Expect fake dates and fiery first-time love in this standalone contemporary MM romance set in London and Cornwall.

Rex Heligan might be known as Mr. Fabulous in the bedroom, but he doesn’t want a boyfriend. In truth, he doesn’t have time between his London banker lifestyle and the Cornish dukedom he’ll inherit. What he needs is someone to watch over his grandfather while he’s away on business.

Rex’s shortlist of caretakers shouldn’t include a thief he once caught stealing, but Devesh Singh-Smith is more than a cat burglar.

Much more.

He’s the only one-night stand Rex hasn’t forgotten.

Rex convinces his grandfather that Devesh is the first boyfriend he’s ever wanted to bring home to their castle where their sizzling spark rekindles. He doesn’t expect the explosiveness of their connection. He also doesn’t expect Devesh to steal his heart by sharing secrets or to leave before their fake relationship is over.

There’s only one way for Rex to steal his heart back.

He’ll have to catch his thief twice and share his own secrets with him, even if it costs Rex his dukedom.

Finding Mr. Fabulous is set in Con Riley’s extended Cornish romance world. New readers can start right here and expect a story rich in heartstring-tugging emotion, and to swoon over a guaranteed HEA, while previous readers might enjoy glimpsing a few old friends.

Secret Fire, by Morticia Knight

The last time Fire Marshal Daryl gave his heart away it was stomped on and destroyed. Can a sweet and sexy younger cop inspire him to risk all for love?

Romance is not on Daryl’s list of things to do. As a matter of fact, the less people he’s forced to deal with, the better. Social interaction is overrated anyway, right? Too bad he can’t get the hot cop from his weekend softball league out of his dirty little fantasies.

Zach just sailed past thirty and is sick of meaningless hook-ups. But finding a decent guy he can click with seems impossible. When a friend suggests he give the surly fire marshal a try, Zach wonders if his buddy has been standing out in the Arizona sun for too long. No way is the ruggedly handsome, cranky Daryl potential relationship material.

Apparently, opposites really do attract, and after a bumpy start it seems as if the road to love is paved with sunshine and rainbows. Or is it? A tragic fire, Daryl’s emotional fortress and a whole lot of danger conspire to keep them apart, but Zach won’t give up without a fight.

But first, he has to survive the threat of death staring him down…

Note: Secret Fire is the first novel in the steamy and exciting Uniform Encounters series. It was previously published under the same title with a different publisher as Book Five in the series. This second edition has been revised and re-edited, but the story remains the same. You can expect a grumpy/sunshine romance between a cop and fire marshal, a ten-year age gap, some kinky smexy times and a dose of mystery/suspense. Please check the Look Inside feature for possible triggers.

Cherry Picked, by May Archer

Never ask your brother’s best friend to… pick your cherry.

When I asked Jack Wyatt to help me lose my pesky v-card, I didn’t expect him to keel over in shocked disapproval and nearly tumble us down a mountain.

You might think a guy who’s been reading romance novels his whole life would’ve figured out a smoother way to broach the subject, but in my defense, I’ve been pining for Jack for seven long years, just waiting for him to notice me.

Jack sees me as sweet, shy Hawk Sunday: his Pride and Prejudice-obsessed hiking buddy; his dependable employee; the honorary little brother he’s determined to protect, not…deflower.

But to me, Jack is everything a romantic hero should be: tall, gorgeous, kind, and brilliant.

Or at least I thought he was brilliant… until he started getting so many things so boneheadedly wrong.

Like refusing to do the deflowering himself, but also, erm… blocking any other potential plant-lovers from getting all up in my garden.

And like continuing to see me as someone who needs protecting, rather than a man who needs possessing

A man who’s determined to get his cherry well and truly picked this summer, whether Jack Wyatt likes it or not.

Vodka And Virtue, by Raquel Riley

When a virtuous buttoned-up bar manager is seduced by a tough-as-nails bouncer almost twice his age, can they find a way to overcome their differences?

Rory MacGregor
During the years I spent overseas, my best friend’s nephew grew up. Now that I’m home, my priorities have shifted, moving Carlisle Carrick to the top of my ’to-do’ list. He is exactly the type of man I dreamed of settling down with, but every time I get close to him, he runs away.

How can I convince him we’d make a perfect match?

Carlisle Carrick

Rory is seventeen years older than me, wears leather, and rides a motorcycle for kicks. I don’t see how we have anything in common. The hunger and determination in his eyes when he stares at me is . . . unnerving! Avoiding him is hopeless – those eyes are everywhere – and I want to give in, I really do, but choosing him as the first man I’ve ever dated would be a disaster.

So why do I still burn up every time I catch him watching me?

Vodka And Virtue is the second book in the Love And Libations series. It features a seventeen year age gap, opposites attract, uncles’s best friend, steamy bisexual/gay romance with a male auction, beach dates, motorcycles, and a sweet HEA.

Legend, by Isla Olsen & Willow Thomas


Legend of the Game. That’s me, apparently. I suppose it’s meant to be a compliment, but to me it just sounds like one of those labels people slap on you when you’re on your way out.

Legend. Stalwart. Dinosaur. It all sounds the same to me.

I’ve been in the Premier League for over twenty years and I’m not ready to leave. I’m definitely not about to let myself get pushed out by a flashy upstart like Archie Milligan.

The kid is way too shiny, way too bouncy…and way too attractive. And if I have to spend any more time training one-on-one with him, I’m going to go insane.


Playing for Croydon Pride has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid. The circumstances that led to me switching clubs weren’t ideal, but I’ve always been a bright side kind of guy, so I plan to make the most of it.

There’s just one problem. Tom Whitford—AKA the not-so-secret object of all my youthful fantasies, and my current training partner—is a total arsehole.

He thinks we’re rivals, but all I want is to be mates. Okay, maybe that’s not all I want, but it’s what I’ll take…after all, what are the odds the legendary player I’ve been swooning over for years is not only secretly attracted to men, but to me in particular?
Legend is book one of the Pride F.C. series. Expect soccer (ahem, football!), shenanigans, sexytimes, British humour, British slang, British spelling, and men falling hopelessly in love.

Change My Ticket, by Zarah Detand

Hollywood heartthrob meets med school dropout in this contemporary British MM romance.

When your key credential is looking good in spandex, your first serious role matters. Too bad that Gabe Duke can’t seem to get a proper handle on the molecular biologist he’s meant to portray. A chance meeting with a young researcher feels like the perfect opportunity to learn more about life in a lab, especially when that researcher seems blessedly ignorant of Gabe’s spot on lists like Hollywood’s Hottest Men Under 25.

Ray Fadil should learn how to refuse a dare. Being caught with his hand in the till—or appropriating university property for an early Halloween display, as the case may be—isn’t how he wanted his Sunday to go. But rather than landing in hot water, he finds himself with an unlikely ally who’s more interested in Ray’s experience with cell proliferation than in ratting him out. Meeting the guy for a coffee seems like a fair trade, especially since he’s rather easy on the eyes.

It’s the fast start of an unlikely friendship. There’s attraction too, though famous Gabe is hesitant to admit that Ray just might be boyfriend material—he’s not about to give an industry outsider a guided tour of his closet.

At least not until a forced outing pushes him to take shelter at Ray’s flat.

True love trumps fame in this smart, slow-burn gay romance featuring secrets, twists and turns, picnicking skeletons, a family Christmas, meddling friends, and two guys from different worlds who, with a little nudge in the right direction, may just find their happily ever after.

The Minotaur’s Mate, by Delaney Rain

Can a bull-headed man and a marshmallow-hearted bull unite to prevent a war and save a people?

All his life, Nat Konstantinidis has watched helplessly as his people sacrificed their own to the Minotaurs who dominate this planet. Are they killed? Are they eaten? No one knows what happens to the captives, but Nat is determined that this is the year it finally ends. Whatever it takes, he’s going to stop the sacrifices.

But from the first moment he’s handed over to one of the beasts, nothing is what he thought it would be. Now Nat doesn’t know what to believe, but he might know whom to trust—the Minotaur prince Nat might not hate as much as he thought he did.

What’s a virgin to do when a big brute looks at him with hearts in his eyes while making promises about saving the world together? And did he just propose?

This novella has an enemies-to-lovers, virgin hero, size difference story with sci-fi elements, a bull-headed human and a marshmallow-hearted bull, spying on your neighbors, shopping for sex toys, one heck of a history lesson, monster-sized anatomy, megalomaniacs fighting to stay in control, and a little stabbing, but there’s a wedding and a HEA ending.

Aisle Be There, by Charlie Cochet

They say your wedding day is the beginning of your happily ever after.

But I’m pretty sure they never stood on a sweltering Florida beach getting ready to promise forever… only to change their mind at the last minute and be assaulted by a crustacean while fleeing the scene.

Once upon a time, I was a respected Navy officer. A guy who made a career out of managing chaos.

Now, I am the chaos, a groom on the run from my ex-fiance and his dad’s goons. Oh, and the guy driving the getaway car? That would be my ex-boyfriend, Jett.

Gorgeous. Brilliant. A guy I couldn’t help falling in love with twelve years ago.

The guy I realize I’ve always loved.

Did I mention he’s also a famous rock star on a sold-out summer tour?

This situation has disaster written all over it. But if I can manage the chaos, maybe I’ll get my happy ending after all.

So what if he can’t remember the last time he took real time to himself? He’s good at working over willing people—with either deep tissue or a flogger—and when he meets an attractive younger man at his favorite club, there’s even the promise of romance in his quiet, settled life.

A hard-working lawyer searching for what’s been missing in his life, Troy wants more than just a few kinky dates. He sees the upcoming Pet Play by the Lake as the perfect opportunity for Dale to explore the submissive side of his switch personality, and for Troy to learn what it means to be a trainer to an eager, if older, boy.

Dale’s not sure he’ll even make it through their week of play together, though. As a sloth surrounded by puppies and ponies, Dale is devastated when it’s clear others don’t see him as a real pet. He already sticks out like a sore thumb, and it seems like one angry pup in particular wants nothing more than to make Dale doubt himself at every turn.

Troy’s determined to show Dale that he doesn’t have to be a boy in order to be a pet worthy of love and acceptance. But when the strain of trying too hard and doubting himself means that not even their favorite punishments are enough to keep Dale with him, can the two of them dig deeper to find the kind of connection they’ve both been craving all along?

Cuddle up with this sloth-out-of-rainforest romance full of unusual pets, awesome hugs, and two workaholics about to discover that love doesn’t have to be an endangered species if they’re willing to slow down and take the time.
