Ministry of Alien Relations, by Rebecca Cohen

Devlin Taylor is Head of Settlement and Relocation for the British Government’s Ministry of Alien Relations. He’s more used to helping recently arrived aliens find new homes and pay their utility bills than babysitting extraterrestrial socialites, but he’s been assigned to look after Zal Catenmir, son of the Chroalian ambassador, during their diplomatic visit to Earth.

Devlin is the perfect host and tour guide, and Zal loves the fuzziness of human males, while Devlin can’t seem to get enough of Zal’s scales and tail. But with only two weeks together before Zal leaves, they need to make the most of their time.

Zal was just out for a bit of fun, trying to relive his wilder youth after a break-up, but Devlin is wonderful and they both wish they could find a way to stay together. The Earth Ambassador Programme is under development, but it doesn’t look likely Devlin will get the job, and the lovers may need to say their goodbyes forever.

A Crown for a Fox, by Cleo Nitz

A witch swears to protect the throne. A fox familiar vows to kill the king.

When Siel unearths the bones of villagers massacred on his fiance’s orders, his heart breaks. His fiance: the king. A monster, and the man who saved Siel from the depth of melancholia. The man Siel loves.

But some loves have to die, and Siel will kill this one. With no army, his only weapon is his secret ability to change into a fox—he’s a familiar.

Caius, an awkward witch, feels accepted at last when he joins the royal guard. For once, his rigid moral code is admired; the king too is an austere man who follows his head over his heart.

Caius swears to protect the throne with his life. But soon, an assassin fox shows up and leaves a trail of bodies. The palace is shrouded in fear; Caius chases a ghost, always ahead, always taunting. Frustrated by Caius’ failures, the king turns on him—criticism, followed by insults, followed by pain.

Chasing and evading each other, Siel and Caius’ dance brings them closer. Soon, they see the similarities: both wounded by the same man, both holding the same principles. And the same fascination for magic, a power neither can have on his own, but that can only be shared.

Choose Me, by Beck Grey 

Narrated by Gary Furlong

Jules:
I’ve been in love with my brother’s best friend since I was twelve, and twenty years later, Erik Osouf is still so far out of my league, we aren’t even playing the same sport. Not that I play sports. That means talking to people, and my social anxiety makes that all but impossible.

It also makes my brother incredibly overprotective, and while I love that Stef always has my back, it’s why I still can’t tell Erik how I feel. It would wreck their friendship, and after everything Stef’s done for me, I won’t ever be the cause of that. I just wish my heart would get that memo.

Erik:
For years I thought of Jules Evans as the quiet, sweet kid who regularly crushed me at Mario Kart, and let fireflies loose in our camping tent. Then he accidentally admits he’s in love with me. He doesn’t remember saying anything, and I’d never embarrass him by mentioning it, but since then I can’t stop thinking about kissing him.

If it was anyone else, I’d probably have told them how I feel by now. But he’s my best friend’s younger brother. The same best friend who told me Jules is off-limits. That makes this all kinds of impossible. Unless I can convince them both I’m the right man for Jules.

Choose Me is a 70,000 word low angst, brother’s best friend, contemporary MM romance about flawed but devoted families, taking chances, and sweet cinnamon roll Vikings. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.

A Vision of Air, by Nicole Silver

The only seer born to the bird folk in seven generations, Fionn has spent his entire life in an impenetrable, remote abbey, learning to control his visions and to heal the sick. He has never met his parents, has never even seen another of his people, and has never known anything beyond the strict order within the abbey walls.

When Kiernan, the half-human son of the forest Sidhe, is sent on a secret mission to the abbey, he finds himself trapped within the walls. He is blinded, weakened, and stripped of his magic—and forced to rely on seer-healer Fionn for everything. To the Sidhe, the bird folk are lesser beings, thought to be barbaric and barely civilized. But Kier doesn’t know Fionn is one of them, and he finds himself attracted the gentle young man he can’t even see.

When Kier remembers his mission to foil a plot that threatens both his life and Fionn’s he has to choose: save the young man he is coming to care about, or carry out the vital mission he was sent for, even if it means losing Fionn

Rocking Karma, by Kaje Harper

Dax

I’ve cut and run on my life more than once in my thirty-one years, leaving everything behind, even my name. Now I’m Dax Crow, long lost half-brother and mixing technician for Jameson Crow, the lead singer of Corvus Rising. I’m using my hard-won skills to help my brother make it big. The rest of the band are incidental to me, although new bass player Lane Bennett is a hot mess of young talent who urgently needs someone to take him under their wing. Not my job. I never get close to anyone. Until some douche of a boyfriend begins jerking the kid around, and I’ve been there, done that. Maybe I can at least give him some advice.

Lane

Playing with Corvus Rising is my dream come true, and I can’t believe in October we’ll play for sixty thousand fans at Rocktoberfest. I just hope I can measure up. The last six months have been a steep learning curve, but I have my secret boyfriend to encourage and direct me whenever he’s around. I wish we could go public, but he’s with the record label and it wouldn’t look good. I also have my secret joy— performing drag as Ms. Fox, when I get the chance. It’s hard juggling everything while touring with the band, but I think I have it under control. Then my worlds collide and my boyfriend shows his true face. I find myself getting surprising advice and support from Dax, the gorgeous, secretive guy behind Corvus’s sound. But I doubt even Dax can turn this disaster into a triumph.

In the Pink, by Virginia Kelly (Lynn Van Dorn)

You’d think winning the Powerball would be the most exciting thing to happen in a poor flamingo shifter’s life, and it was, until my family moved from Florida swampland to glamorous Valleywood. Swimming pools, movie stars, and every flavor of supernatural you can think of. Where a family of shifters can live in a huge pink mansion and not worry about normal human riffraff.

Unfortunately, the famous actor next door, Dmitri Barlovski, is not only the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen, but also turns out to be a territorial swan shifter. When my little brother gets caught playing in the swan’s koi pond, things escalate between me and Dmitri until I punch him in the face and he threatens to have me put in jail. Fun times.

As Dmitri and I get to know each other, different kinds of sparks start flying between us despite a ton of reasons why we don’t belong together. His dad, a goose mafia kingpin, hates me. I’m not Dmitri’s type—at all. We’re not even the same species.

None of that matters because Dmitri and I belong together and no one will stand in our way. Not Dmitri’s homicidal father, two terrifying cassowary bodyguards, or my well-meaning but crazy relatives. Not even Dmitri himself when he tells me over and over he’ll never have a mate.

In the Pink is #23 in the multi-author series Valleywood. It’s an urban fantasy MM romance with a redneck flamingo shifter, a Valleywood movie star swan shifter with stabby tendencies, gangster geese, massive Australian murder birds, a flamboyance of nosy—and noisy—flamingos, a sex demon, and really excellent shrimp salad.

But helping them means giving up so much. I have a family now—a pride—and I don’t want to put them at risk. Luckily for me, my mate wants to be a part of the revolution, too, but that still leaves everyone else.
