Fourth Down, by Cecelia Storm

Coaching in the NFL is a complex game… but it’s nothing compared to falling for your best friend.

I worked hard to become the Head Coach of the San Diego Seals. Long hours, exhausting games, never-ending practices, and don’t get me started on the politics. But Dallas has always been there for me, my best friend and colleague. He’s my rock. I can’t help feeling, though, that there’s an emptiness in my chest – something missing… someone missing. Why, all of a sudden, does my heart leap when I look at Dallas?

Working for the Seals is stressful, but at least I don’t have Simon’s gig. I wouldn’t be able to handle it. I’m glad to be there and support him through the playing seasons. Why, then, do I feel like I can’t trust him or anyone else? My best friend doesn’t even know I have a son, but he’s going to find out soon because I just won sole custody. How will this affect our relationship? Will he hate me for hiding this secret for so long? Or will we become closer? Somehow I like that idea. Closer… much closer.

Fourth Down is a Single Dad Friends to Lovers MM Sports romance and the third book in the San Diego Seals series.

The Dragon and His Knight, by Adara Wolf & R. Phoenix

Opal desperately wants to fall in love and have a whirlwind romance, preferably with a human. So when he’s rescued by a dashing knight, he thinks his day has finally come. There’s just one problem: Tristan hates dragons. Opal isn’t going to let something silly like that get in the way of his true love, though. Surely with a bit of wooing, some aphrodisiac dragon fluids, and an epic journey together, Tristan will see the error of his ways, and they can have their happily ever after.

Lost in grief, Tristan’s only goal in life is to eradicate the monsters that killed his brother. He doesn’t really want to babysit delicate Opal, who wears skirts and makeup and dreams of romance. Opal is strange, his stories don’t make sense, and he’s weirdly shy and lustful at the same time… yet he’s sweet, and his kisses are addictive, and he makes Tristan’s heart flutter.

Opal is sure theirs is a romantic story for the ages–but his secret might drive them apart for good.

The Dragon and His Knight is a standalone set in the Monster’s Pet universe. It is not necessary to read The Monster’s Pet trilogy before diving in to Opal’s story!

There are certain unwritten rules in the Lakeview Trailer Park, and number five is clear—No Gay Stuff.

It isn’t an easy task to pretend to be the son they want, and when his best friend tells the truth to Jonas’s parents, he’s sure his life is over. Until Ethan. Ethan gives him hope and makes him smile, and Jonas wants to be with him, even if it means saying goodbye to the only life he knows.

Castiel, by Taylor Rylan

They were supposed to be colleagues. Fate had other plans for them.

Dr. Castiel Bennett has been alone a very long time. The oldest son of one of an original eight, he’s seen a lot in his long life. As a gargoyle, he doesn’t mind living a solitary life, but he knows it would be so much better with his fated mate by his side. He’s given up finding them and has focused on helping others with the paranormal council. But when he’s told the new doctor to help with the rescued paranormals has arrived, he gets quite a surprise from the dragon omega.

Dr. Garin Braun was asked by his uncle if he’d be willing to relocate to Montana and work for the paranormal council. With a possessive ex that still badgers him every so often, he is more than willing to return to the mountains he often visited when he was younger. Expecting life to continue on as it had in France, he’s surprised to discover that his new partner at the clinic is much more than just a fellow doctor.

Garin has had a controlling ex before, and that’s the last thing he wants in a fated mate. But Castiel has warned that he can’t help but be a bit possessive where his fated mate is concerned. Can they accept each other for how they are while trying to balance life and work?

Castiel is Book Ten in the Paranormal Council Enforcers series. Each book in this series will focus on a different couple, but these books are not standalones and should be read in order as there is an ongoing backstory that won’t be resolved quickly. This is a fated mate story in an MPreg world, and there will be babies in this story. You should expect all the normal shenanigans, heats, biting, knotting, and remember that sometimes even fated mates need a little help.

His Daddy Omega, by Raiven Matthews

Asher Pierce

Being an omega Daddy was frustrating, to say the least. But I had never met a challenge I couldn’t conquer, and Gabe Carmichael would be no different. From the first moment I had laid eyes on him sporting the cutest pair of little pajamas, I knew I wanted him. He called to both sides of me; to protect him as his Daddy, and to claim me as my alpha. I had to have both, even as my little bear ignored my flirtatious advances. When an injury makes it clear to us that Fate is on my side, I hope it’s the opportunity I need to convince my stubborn alpha little that he’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more.

Gabe Carmichael

As an alpha and a little, my dating life was a joke. Finding a Daddy? Impossible. No one wanted an alpha bear as a little! The thought of giving up my little side for a mate nearly brought me to tears. After a bad experience, hookups with strangers and playtime with my bestie were what I had left to fill the gap. Enter Asher Pierce. He turns my world upside down. Too pretty, too confident, and way too bossy for my liking. Better to avoid temptation than be hurt again. When I’m hurt saving a wolf cub, Fate steps in. Now Asher is everywhere I turn. Smelling like the sweetest omega, and spouting orders like the Daddy Dom he is. I don’t know what to do about any of it.

Could he be the Daddy I needed, while still allowing me to be the Alpha I was?

“His Daddy Omega” is book five in the Sweet Alps Mates series and can be read as a standalone. While it is not necessary to have read the previous books, some readers find it more enjoyable since a few favorite characters make appearances. This book contains fated mates, opposites attract, Daddy/little (no ABDL), size difference, shifters, knotting, Mpreg, a shy bear with an alpha heart, and an overly assertive cheetah who likes to top from the bottom.
