Mathias Bastholm has never felt close to his family. His father, a former pastor, is dead after throwing himself from the church belltower, and his widowed mother is now an alcoholic, threatening to disown her son for coming out as gay. A prospective ear, nose, and throat doctor, Mathias simply wants to get on with his specialist training and marry his boyfriend, Kamal, as the two share a passionate connection that transcends their different cultural backgrounds.
However, just as the couple settle into a routine, establishing the foundations of their relationship while sharing a home and working at the same hospital in rural West Jutland, their lives are upended by tragedy. Although Mathias has reconciled himself to his mother’s estrangement, he and Kamal now find themselves building a different kind of family, forced to come to terms with a completely new plan for their future together.
But every marriage has its obstacles. Kamal, an Iranian immigrant still struggling with the Danish language, faces questions about his own identity, including how to reconcile his faith with his husband’s disdain for religion. Meanwhile, Mathias wrestles not only with conflicting emotions about his family but also with romantic temptations that could shake his relationship with Kamal.
In turns philosophical, absurdist, and romantic, Amongst Fools and Fundamentalists explores the meanings of family and love in a changing world.

It’s a classic story: Boy meets girl, girl breaks boy’s heart, boy pretends to be gay to get back at girl, girl outs boy to everyone on Facebook…
Okay, maybe it’s not that classic. But it’s what happened to me.
When I bump into my cheating ex and catch sight of the moon-sized rock on her finger, there’s only one option to save face: pretend to be dating my gay best friend, Declan.
And when she outs me on Facebook and everyone I know sees it, there’s still only one option: keep pretending to be dating Declan.
And when Declan and I have to kiss to keep up the ruse and it turns out there’s actually a spark between us (more like a blazing inferno, if truth be told) there’s once again only one option…
Warning: this book is not appropriate for anyone who doesn’t like laughing, anyone who doesn’t like dogs, or anyone who doesn’t like hot men having a lot of sex…with each other.

Where He Ends & I Begin: For best friends Jake and Nate the question isn’t how they ended up in bed together but how they stay there.
Aggressive, physical, and brave, Jake Owens is a small town football hero turned big city cop who passes his time with meaningless encounters believing he can’t have who he really wants: Nate Richardson, his best friend since before forever. Thoughtful, quiet, and kind, Nate is a brilliant doctor who has always known who he is and has never been able to shake his crush on loyal, courageous, straight Jake.
After a passionate night together, Nate realizes Jake isn’t as straight as he assumed, but he worries that what they shared was a fluke, a result of too much closeness for too long. For Jake, the question isn’t how they ended up in bed together because he has always known that Nate holds his heart, it’s how he’ll convince Nate that he wants and needs to stay there.
Love at First Sight: David must find the courage to share himself and Jonathan must find the strength to tell the truth.
The moment naïve, optimistic Jonathan Doyle glimpses a gorgeous blue-eyed stranger from afar, he believes in love at first sight.

Just as he is about to give up, Jonathan gets a break and finally encounters David Miller face to face.
Successful, confident David turns Jonathan’s previously lonely life into a fairy tale, giving him more than he ever imagined. But the years spent searching were hard on Jonathan, and he’s terrified his young son and scandalous past will destroy his blossoming relationship. For David and Jonathan to build a future together, they’ll both have to dig deep: David for the courage to share himself in a way he’s never considered and Jonathan for the strength to tell the truth.
He Completes Me: Aaron has waited years for a man who can share his heart and he insists it’s party boy Zach.
Not even his mother’s funeral can convince self-proclaimed party boy Zach Johnson to tone down his snark or think about settling down. He is who he is, and he refuses to change for anyone. When straight-laced, compassionate Aaron Paulson claims he’s falling for him, Zach is certain Aaron sees him as another project, one more lost soul for the idealistic Aaron to save. But Zach doesn’t need to be fixed and he refuses to be with someone who sees him as broken.
Patience is one of Aaron’s many virtues. He has waited years for a man who can share his heart and complete his life and he insists Zach is the one. Pride, fear, and old hurts wither in the wake of Aaron’s adoring loyalty, and as Zach reevaluates his perceptions of love and family, he finds himself tempted to believe in the impossible: a happily-ever-after.
