His fated mate, who doesn’t want to let him walk away, or the prince who can only offer him a place in the shadows, not by his side.

Discover the world of the Familiar Mates mm fated mates paranormal romance series. The Spy’s Familiar has a snarly Komodo dragon shifter, a jaded spy who’d give up the job for the right person, and a prince who might one day make a good agent. There is no MMM and no cheating.

Take Shelter With Me, by RM Neill

One thrives off order.
The other lets his heart guide him.
Together they are perfectly balanced.

All elements of my life are controlled and measured. My days filled with check lists and colour-coded columns. With an animal and a youth shelter to run and people counting on me, I have no time for distractions.
Yet I can’t get the man I spent one fiery night with out of my head.
He has me acting on impulses I didn’t know I had and tossing my responsibilities aside.

I want to be with him and find the perfect balance between my personal and professional life. But how is that possible with us forced into a long-distance relationship as he travels with his hockey team?
Just when I think we can follow our hearts and make this work, a face from my past reappears, threatening to destroy all I’ve built.

I hoped returning to the NHL would fill the void in my life and restore my sense of purpose. Instead I felt that same emptiness.
Until I met Jacob.
After the anonymous night of passion we spent together, I’m elated to see him again at a fundraiser.

He’s my teammate’s little brother and he thinks it’s wrong to put his happiness first.
But I’m willing to do whatever it takes to prove our lives will be more fulfilling and complete together.
One way or another, I will convince him happiness is worth the risk.

This is book three in the Sheltered Connections series of stand alones. This 74k word story includes two men with giant hearts working towards healing themselves, off the charts sexual attraction, an obsession with lavender and the swooniest of grand gestures. A true tale of love always finding a way.

All’s Fair in Love & Dare, by Rikki Leighton

If all’s fair in love and dare, someone’s heart will have to give, but how can we survive the fallout?

Being a virgin is my well kept secret.

Being straight is the lie I’ve hid behind for the last twenty-one years. The truth is, I don’t know what I am. But when my best friend dares me to sleep with a guy, the floodgates of foreign desire open and threaten to bury me under their current.

Messages sent in secret to a stranger wake up my heart and libido in newfound ways, and while we trade scorchingly dirty texts, the person I pretend is on the other side of the screen has my conscience in a tailspin: my best friend’s brother.

Blair Novak has been our protector for years, taking his father’s harsh words and harsher hands in stride as long as it meant me and his brother were safe. He’s always given us his everything and somehow, I never realized it.

I see it now. In the shake of his hands as he pulls me close with a white-knuckled grip. In the ink that he wears on his skin like armor, like patches to the wounds he’s spent his whole life healing.

Blair has given up so much of himself for his brother. I want to be his balm, not the final shard that rips him apart. Our connection has bloomed from words on a screen to a galaxy of emotions I can never rein in, and I’m not sure I want to.

Even at the expense of my best friend’s heart.

You, Again, by Lane Hayes

The hometown hockey hero and his best friend’s brother…


Hockey is in my blood. I learned to skate before I learned how to ride a bike. I’ve been on a wild ride, playing at the highest level for some of the biggest and best teams in the league. But now it’s over, and I’m not sure what to do with myself.

So I’m going home to Elmwood.

But I’ll tell you what I’m not gonna do—I’m not going to coach my buddy’s junior hockey league. No chance. I don’t know how to deal with kids, and besides, the other coach—who happens to be my best friend’s brother—hates me. With reason.

That may be old news, yet something tells me we’re going to have to deal with the past.

And that’s almost as scary as coaching teens.


No, I don’t hate Vinnie, but he drives me nuts.

He’s cocky, goofy, selfish, and yeah…after all these years, I’m still attracted to him. But I’m a responsible adult now. I run my family’s business, and with the help of my ex, I’ve made Elmwood Diner into a New England institution.

So maybe my life isn’t particularly exciting at the moment, and maybe Vinnie isn’t the worst. Nonetheless, I have no desire to rekindle a friendship with the hockey hero who no doubt will be on the first flight out of town the second he gets bored or gets a better offer.

And I’m not coaching with him. No way.


I can’t believe I’m doing this again.

You, Again is an MM bisexual, best friend’s brother, frenemies to lovers romance featuring old friends, a new quest, and a little hockey HEA!

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.

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!

Xavier, by Gabbi Grey

When my wife died five years ago, leaving me alone to raise our three young daughters, only my duty to them and my work as a psychiatrist kept me from losing myself in grief. I did my best to be a good father through the darkest days, but now I can see I’ve been distant and cold. Things need to change. I’ve pledged to my daughters that I’ll start doing better. Be more involved. Show them what a great dad looks like. If that means soccer practice, violin lessons, and sitting through a dozen dance recitals, then I’m all-in.

Pliés, pas-de-deux, cheerleading practice, and enough tutus to last a lifetime— how is this my life? I’m a fisherman up in the Bering Sea. In the offseason, I travel through Alaska and, on rare occasions, drop in to see my sister and her four sons in Gaynor Beach, California. This year? She’s laid up with an injury. Suddenly I’m running her dance studio, and I’m a fish waaaay out of water. Then I meet another guy who’s equally uncomfortable. He’s working so hard to be a good dad, and I keep hoping he’ll notice me. Except, when my sister’s healed and fishing season starts, I’m out of here. Right?

This gay romance is a slow burn, mid-angst, age-gap, opposites-attract, instalove story with a fisherman who needs the ocean, a counselor who needs therapy, three young girls in need of love, and a found family that’ll change their lives forever.

You Can Do Magic, by R.L. Merrill

From the author of Foreword Indies Finalist Summer of Hush and BookLife Prize Quarterfinalist Brains and Brawn comes a new installment in the series, a contemporary gay romance with a side of time travel and magic.

Musical prodigy Kallos Alexandrou has played his calliope for countless visitors at Errante Ame’s Carnival of Mysteries, but his one-year residency has come to an end. Scars from a terrible tragedy in his past are the only explanation he has for his loss of speech and memory, but it’s time to move on, so when a music festival sets up next to the carnival, Mr. Ame sends him off with identification, a bottomless billfold, and a set of new clothes. Outside the carnival’s perimeter, Kal finds himself in an unfamiliar world surrounded by strange instruments and vibrant people like nothing he’s ever seen.

Ryan Wells is the troubled and celebrated lead singer of the metal band Backdrop Silhouette. He’s brought more than his share of baggage on the last cross-country Warped Tour, including harsh restrictions placed on him by his parole officer and the band’s label, but it’s the treatment from his bandmates that have him feeling unsettled. After a tough morning, he spots a strange young man playing carnival music on a keyboard backstage, and the sound takes him back to a particularly vulnerable time in his youth. Intrigued, Ryan asks the young man’s name, but he flees only to appear later as a replacement stagehand for the tour.

An invitation from the band Hush to ride on their bus gives Ryan and Kal a welcome distraction. They find the camaraderie and support they’ve both been craving…as well as a little magic and a fresh new romance. But personal secrets and the music business make relationships difficult to maintain, and when the tour ends, Ryan and Kal will have to make a choice: move forward together on an uncertain path, or let fear keep them from trusting that sometimes you really can have everything you desire.

You Can Do Magic is part of the multi-author Carnival of Mysteries Series. Each book stands alone, but each one includes at least one visit to Errante Ame’s Carnival of Mysteries, a magical, multiverse traveling show full of unusual acts, games, and rides. The Carnival changes to suit the world it’s on, so each visit is unique and special. This book contains a Depression-era calliaphone, a Ouija board with a purpose, and tour bus hijinks that will warm your heart and make you gigglesnort. Reading Summer of Hush and Brains and Brawn before this book will give you the full Warped Tour experience, but You Can Do Magic can be read as a standalone as well as the other books in the shared universe. Recommended 18+

A Matcha Made in Hell, by F.A. Ray

Who would have guessed my high school bully could be such a good boy?


The worst day of my life was my first day of high school – the day I met him. Spencer Marsh. The guy who would shove me into lockers for the next four years.

I never expected to reunite with him in college. I definitely didn’t predict that sparks would fly. This new and improved Spencer is subverting all my expectations, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing.

Hooking up with a guy I used to hate is turning into more than just a shameful secret. I should put a stop to it. I should want to put a stop to it. So why don’t I?


I’ve been trying since graduation to be different from the guy I was in high school, but seeing Rhett again stirs up old emotions – and an overwhelming desire to atone.

Nevermind that that atonement seems to be happening in some … compromising positions.

My frat brothers and father would never accept what I’m doing, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to stop me. I’m finally the man I want to be, the person I’ve been repressing for most of my life. And it’s all thanks to the guy who used to be the target of my worst impulses.

I only hope Rhett will give me a chance to prove I’m not who I used to be.

A Matcha Made in Hell is an MM enemies-to-lovers romance with first time gay experiences, found family, a bully who just wants to show he’s changed his ways, and spicy open door scenes.

The Holiday Boyfriend, by Rye Cox

Can love develop from a situationship? Asking for a friend.

Austin Wood
There is nothing worse than being in love with your best friend. Scratch that. There is nothing worse than living with your best friend whom you are madly in love with and had an accidental one night stand with. What is even more confusing is the fact that Jim seems to not understand what a one night stand is. He thinks we’re in some kind of friends with benefits situation, and I don’t know if I’m in heaven or hell.

Jim Walker
I love my best friend. Not in that way, but I consider him one of the most important people in my life. I’ll do anything for him, even helping him relieve some tension when he needs it. Now, I just have to ignore the weird pang in my chest every time he leaves right after.

The Holiday Boyfriend is a situationship-to-lovers, MM romance about two best friends who are a bit clueless. It features a ton of sweet moments, sneaky kisses, and a holiday love that will break the bounds of friendships. It is the second book of the Doves of Destiny series and can be read as a standalone but will be more enjoyable when read as a series.

Tequila And Tattoos, by Raquel Riley

There’s an old Latin phrase – omne trium perfectum – meaning everything that comes in threes is perfect.


We all have choices to make and consequences to suffer. Two decades ago, I chose Shannon. But Shannon didn’t choose me. He chose my family instead. And when he broke my heart, my consequence was an addiction to food. I spent years overcoming my struggles, all while my anger and hurt multiplied. I swore to myself I would never make the same mistake twice, until I met Aries. I fell hard for my best friend. Unfortunately, so had Shannon.

Were the mistakes of my past doomed to repeat themselves?


I chose to have a family, over the love of one man. Their warmth and acceptance were commodities I yearned for my entire life. But nothing comes without cost, and the price I paid to become a Carrick was too high. I lost my best friend, the only man I’d ever loved, and was convinced I’d never have it again. Until Aries.

I vowed never to hurt Gordy again. How was I going to find the strength to walk away from love a second time?


My bromance with Gordy had quickly bloomed into a full-fledged romance, while my crush on Shannon had ignited from a spark into a raging inferno. I was in love with two men at the same time. Two men who hated each other. Did I mention they were also cousins? Choosing one was impossible. My only option was to make them see how good the three of us could be together.

Are love and hate really two sides of the same coin?

Tequila And Tattoos is the fourth and final book in the Love And Libations series. This MMM romance features feuding cousins, a piercing fetish, issues with an eating disorder and body dysmorphia, and three guys who couldn’t be more opposite; a hippie tattoo artist, a flirty bar owner, and a grumpy chef.

Bellamy, by Linden Bell

Where’s the line between love and hate?

I don’t know how we ended up as rivals, but I couldn’t have asked for a better nemesis than Noel. It’s fun throwing insults and watching him lose his shit in public. He’s cute when he’s angry.

The world thinks he’s a grumpy bad boy, but I’m not sold. The more I get to know him, the more I’m convinced there’s a squishy marshmallow center underneath his hard shell.

Golden boy Bellamy drives me up the freaking wall. All I want to do is wipe that smug, arrogant grin off his face–not necessarily with my hand.

I hate him, but the truth is I can’t keep my hands off him. Our rivalry has always been explosive, and it turns out, so are we.

Bellamy is an enemies-to-lovers, grumpy/sunshine, opposites attract MM romance between two camboys, each vying for the top spot. Expect secret hotel rendezvous, hate f*cking, and oiled-up wrestling. It is the second book in The Camboy Network series and can be read as a stand-alone.
