The Ocean God’s Oath, by AT Lander

Can his first love be his second chance?

Theocles, a mercenary in war-torn Ancient Greece, has lost faith in the gods, the world, and himself. Trapped in a cycle of violence that wears away his principles, he seems destined to lose his humanity… until his long-forgotten past resurfaces, and everything changes.

Hali, a minor god of the peaceful deep sea, has spent fifteen years on a quest to save his childhood sweetheart. A shapeshifter with bottomless compassion, he longs to embrace Theo with human arms and warm tentacles— to help his lost love finally find peace.

Taken by instant attraction for this familiar stranger, Theo finds himself torn between the love he longs for and the only life he knows. The scars of war cut deep, and Theo’ s only “ friend” whispers poison in his ear. With Theo’ s soul and Hali’ s life on the line, can this mercenary find redemption? Or will he truly become the monster he fears he is?

Red Heir, by Lisa Henry & Sarah Honey

Imprisoned pickpocket Loth isn’t sure why a bunch of idiots just broke into his cell claiming they’re here to rescue the lost prince of Aguillon, and he doesn’t really care. They’re looking for a redheaded prince, and he’s more than happy to play along if it means freedom. Then his cranky cellmate Grub complicates things by claiming to be the prince as well.

Now they’re fleeing across the country and Loth’s stuck sharing a horse and a bedroll with Grub while imitating royalty, eating eel porridge, and dodging swamp monsters and bandits.

Along the way, Loth discovers that there’s more to Grub than meets the eye. Under the dirt and bad attitude, Grub’s not completely awful. He might even be attractive. In fact, Loth has a terrible suspicion that he’s developing feelings, and he’s not sure what to do about that. He’d probably have more luck figuring it out if people would just stop trying to kill them.

Still, at least they’ve got a dragon, right?

Grind, by K.A. Merikan

“I won’t let anyone hurt him. Even if he can never be mine.”

Ezra. Escort. Cynical. Hunted by a killer. Needs a man capable of anything.

Frank. Client. Protective. Loyal. Wants to forget his violent past.

On his 40th birthday, Frank decides his chance for love has passed.

But when an old friend treats him to a night with a beautiful escort, Frank is not about to say no. In fact, Ezra proves to be so intoxicating, he doesn’t want to let go.

So he’ll pay. An easy solution to loneliness. No strings, no expectations, a clean transaction and a bit of extravagance in his otherwise frugal life.

That is, until one night Ezra arrives on his doorstep, desperate for protection from none other than Frank’s old buddy. A man as dangerous as Frank used to be.

Ezra has a very clear goal in life—make a load of money while he’s young and beautiful, then marry rich. His rules are just as simple: stay safe and don’t fall for clients.

Frank might be Ezra’s type: big, rough around the edges, and generous in bed, but Ezra is level-headed enough to know that a guy who works at a junkyard and doesn’t exactly own a yacht isn’t marriage material.

But Ezra is in danger, and he needs a man with massive fists, not deep pockets, so he will do everything in his power to secure Frank’s affection.

Only Frank never planned to get involved with his little treat. Because if Ezra knew his dark secrets, he’d be terrified of what kind of monster he’d let into his bed.

Make You Love Me, by Shae Michaels

My adoption made us brothers. My obsession makes him mine.

Love. Lust. Obsession. There’s no telling which of my feelings for Noah came first.
What do I have to do—who do I have to be—to make him feel the same? To want me. To love me.
Even though it will mean the destruction of our precariously constructed family, who the fuck cares? I certainly don’t. Not if I can make Noah mine.

The Moon Over The Oak, by CJ Ravenna

Childhood friends. Decades of hidden feelings. A bond never meant to break— until it shatters.

Ryan Kelly has known Zach DeShawn was his mate since they were kids. Just when Ryan is ready to finally tell Zach how he feels, he inherits his grandmother’s magic. If Ryan can’t learn to control his magic, how can he protect his friends from the danger his grandmother predicted with her dying breath?

All his life, Zach DeShawn could never scent his fated mate. Without a special scent to tell him who he is destined to be with, all Zach’s relationships have ended in heartbreak. Sparks ignite between him and Ryan, but Zach is terrified to take a chance and have his heart broken yet again.

When an ancient enemy’s curse shatters the pack bonds every werewolf needs to stay human and sane, the lifelong friends are faced with the nightmare of forgetting the ones they love. Ryan and Zach must finally put their hearts on the line, before all is consumed in feral madness.

The Moon Over The Oak is the fourth book in The Lycanthrope Protection Agency. It features childhood friends to lovers, fated mates, friends-with-benefits fun, and a Happily-Ever-After. This installment is an interconnected standalone, but is best enjoyed after reading To Hunt A Moonborn Beast and its sequels.

Love is Blind, by S.C. Wynne

Beau Dexter is a male escort with zero belief in love. He had a rough beginning in life, and he’s not looking for anything other than a full roster of satisfied clients.

Seth Fontaine is blind and grieving the loss of his lover five years ago. But even a broken-hearted man has needs, and that’s where Beau comes in.

Neither one of them is looking for anything other than a little superficial fun. But when these two damaged men connect on a much deeper level than expected, Beau’s extreme fear of emotional intimacy almost derails them before they even begin.

This heartwarming romantic Novella, originally called Kiss and Tell in 2015, has been redone and polished to flesh out the story more. I hope you fall in love with Seth and Beau just like I did all over again.

Green Light, by Lark Taylor

What is the true nature of the relationship between the guitarist and bassist of the world-famous rock band, Caffeine Daydreams?


I should be happy.

My childhood best friend and I are living our wildest dream—making music and touring the world as famous rock stars. I’ve got everything I could wish for.

Except him.

I’ll never have Silas. Not the way I want.

Our onstage behaviour gives fans a lot to speculate over, but it’s only an act.

The truth is, I die inside every time we touch. It might be pretend for Silas, but for me, it’s a constant reminder that I can’t have him the way I truly desire.

Then, a moment onstage leads me to a breaking point, and I can’t bear the heartache any longer.

I need to find a way to only see Silas as a friend before I lose our friendship, and him, forever.


My life is split into two chapters.

Before Kai and After Kai.

My childhood was a nightmare. A darkness I carried alone. But everything became brighter when I met Kai. He took me into his life, his family, his home.

Kai is more than my best friend. He’s my everything.

Some people think our relationship is odd…that it’s unusual for two friends to be as close as we are.

But everything about us makes sense.

At least, that’s what I believed.

When an onstage moment shines a light on the cracks in our foundation, my eyes are opened to a truth that’s been right in front of me the entire time.

A truth I want to explore.

But it’s too late. Just when I’m ready for more, Kai’s moving on.

One thing’s for sure; I’m not giving up.

No matter the risks.

Green Light is a bi-awakening, best friends-to-lovers MM rockstar romance. The second in the Caffeine Daydreams series, each book will follow a different couple as they find their HEA. Although better read in order, these books can stand alone.

Chained Omega, by Jay L. North

An Omega on the run
An Alpha chaining his catch
An attraction that won’t be denied
All the steam!

I can’t believe I was so careless that I managed to get myself caught. And not only that, but the unhinged Alpha a-hole has me chained to the Goddess-damned floor! I need to get free, no matter the cost. Even if it means bowing down to my captor and submitting to him in ways I’ve never allowed myself before. Only, the more I yield, the better it feels. Can captivity really be so wrong when it tastes so sweet?

When I found the Omega rummaging around in my home I knew my suspicions were correct, and that I couldn’t let him get away. But the longer I keep him, the more convinced I become that he’s not the spy I took him for and that he too is in danger. However, I won’t let him go. He’s mine and I won’t let anyone take him from me, no matter the consequences.

This is the third book in the series of the Black Creek Pack Omegas. The story takes place in an ABO, m-preg universe that isn’t kind to Omegas. There is also Wolf semi-shifting – i.e., no actual wolves are appearing anywhere.
Each book follows a new couple and their way to their happily ever after, but there’s an over-reaching story arc that stretches over the entire series meaning that for maximum enjoyment the first two books should be read before this book.

Terrible Lovely Demon, by Odessa Hywell

A decade ago, Maxton cheated death. Now, a twist of fate brings him face-to-face with his demonic savior.

Ten years ago Maxton Grant was a frail sixteen-year-old slowly being consumed by an aggressive form of childhood cancer and teetering on the brink of death. Until, suddenly, he wasn’t.

The doctors called it a miracle, but Maxton knew the truth. An act of divine intervention wasn’t what saved him. It was Beau Holland, his hot-as-sin night nurse—a demon in disguise who was willing to make a deal with a dying teenager that gave him a second chance at life.

Now, a decade later, a chance encounter reunites Maxton with the demon from his past. Neither can fight the questionable chemistry that has always existed between them, but they struck a bargain, and Maxton must pay the price.

Is it such a terrible fate to owe a lovely demon a favor?
