Patience, by Lark Taylor

I paid the ultimate price when I took the gamble to save my mate’s soul.


Ferryman. The Grim Reaper. La Muerte. La Pelona. Shinigami. Charon.

I’ve been called many names over the millennia, all thanks to my role in Hell.

Ferrying dead souls over the river Styx.

But few know the demon behind the legend, how I came to be here, or the freedom I sacrificed to save the man I love.

Now I’m free to find him again. The problem? He doesn’t remember me.

And he’s straight.

Leo fell madly in love with me once before. Will he fall again before it’s too late?


All my life, I’ve felt like something is missing. Neither my job as a firefighter, my brother Matty, nor my ex-girlfriends have been able to fill that hole.

When a mysterious stranger approaches me in a bar, I find myself captivated.

I’ve never been attracted to men before, but I can’t seem to resist him.

Why is it that spending time with Ferry feels so…right? So familiar?

Patience is a fated-mates, second-chance PNR romance. The first in the Damned Connections series, each book will follow a different couple as they find their HEA. Although better read in order, these books can stand alone.

Adverse Conditions, by Elle Keaton

Xavier swore he’d never move back to the flyspeck of a town he’d grown up in and he kept that promise for over twenty years. Now he’s back for good.

Vincent never left. After college, he stayed in town to be close to his elderly parents. These days he’s the single dad of a fifteen-year-old daughter and working two jobs to make ends meet. He’s perfectly happy with his life.

Can two lifelong enemies move from hate to something more?

Xavier’s new mission is to breathe life back into Cooper Springs, but his stodgy, straight-laced, rule-following neighbor, Vincent Barone–is getting in the way. Dark-eyed, broad-shouldered,muscly Vincent, who Xav stealthily ogles when the man toils in his front yard sans shirt. For a high school shop teacher, Vincent is too sexy. And he has a kid. And he infuriates Xavier. And anyway, love is for suckers.

Vincent doesn’t have time to date. And he certainly wouldn’t date his flashy, arrogant, neighbor whom he absolutely did not have a crush on back in high school. Who did Xavier think he was, moving back to town and throwing his weight around, causing butterflies in Vincent’s stomach, and making his stupid heart beat faster every time he saw him?

Cooper Springs has changed since they were kids, maybe two guys can move from hate to love. But are they ready? Will Vincent bend a few of his rules? Will Xavier reign in his chaotic tendencies? Is love in the air?

Then there’s the matter of the grisly discovery in the woods–murder is bad for business.

Welcome to Cooper Springs, home to UFO chasers, Sasquatch believers, conspiracy theorists, chainsaw artists, and regular folk just trying to make a living. And, quite possibly, a killer.

Adverse Conditions is the first in the Reclaimed Hearts series, set in the wilds of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, it is an opposites-attract, older lovers, silver fox, enemies to lovers, small-town romance, with a little murder. HEA guaranteed.

Grave Work, by Lia Sharpe


I have a dark secret and the Urso Family knows it.

Working as a mortician by day and a…different kind of mortician by night, the Ursos use my secret to blackmail me and my crematorium into working for them. My life is a haze of guilt and misery with one single bright spot: Francis Urso.

So what if he’s a dangerous mafia hitman? He’s a dangerous mafia hitman who wants me.


I’m the fourth son of the Urso Family. Shunned, disrespected, and relegated to “clean-up duty,” I want nothing more than to find my way back in—and I wouldn’t mind if I got to keep working with Dominic, the strange, handsome mortician who is just as much a pawn in this game as I am.

When we are attacked in Dominic’s crematorium, we strike off on our own, unsure who is on our tail. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him safe, but between the threat of a looming mafia war and the searing attraction between us that we’ve long ignored, can we find a way to band together and survive?

Grave Work is the first book in the Villainous Creatures series, a steamy MM mafia romance. For lovers of forced proximity, lovers on the run, slow burn, hookup-to-lovers, feral unhinged MCs, a cinnamon roll who could actually kill you, and a murderous hitman who is soft for his boyfriend. Read on if you love your dark-ish romance with a hint of humor and lots of action.
