Rule #1: Don’t fall in love with the coach
Gabriel Theriault’s been skating on thin ice for the past two seasons with Toronto but his arrest following an off-ice fight is the final straw.
His only shot at redemption is to start over in Evanston and prove that he still has what it takes to be a pro player.
No more fights. No more drinking. No more random hookups.
Rule #2: The team always comes first
Years ago, Lance Tate’s on-ice injury ended his career and marriage.
His long road to recovery led to a job he loves as assistant coach with the Evanston Otters, and he wouldn’t dream of giving that up.
Until he meets Gabriel.
The French-Canadian is nineteen years younger, burdened by too much responsibility, and the most intriguing man Lance has ever met.
He’s also the absolute last man Lance should get involved with.
The draw between them is impossible to resist—even if it could cost them the game they love.
Their only chance at winning it all is to change the rules.

Once upon a forgotten dream …
“His name is Al. He will call you Denny. That’s all you need to know.”
Velden’s been waiting for his true bond for over six centuries. Finally, after the “helpful” intervention of his goddess, he has suppressed his true dream and accepted his supporting role in the prophecy. When the worst blood mage in the land crashes a wedding before the final vows, Velden faces a tough choice: follow his assassin’s mark or some elf he vaguely recognizes.
Even though Alvarick’s skin burns in the healing sun and he’s been tested twice with no sign of power, it’s clear he won’t make it through a third harvest festival. He must be married and gone by the harvest moon or a blood mage will claim him as a plaything, prophecy or not.
An acerbic mercenary and a naïve son of a goddess must join in a fight against fate. Even if they escape, it’s only a matter of time before the mages uncover Alvarick’s lineage and his role in the prophecy: his blood will either save the realm or destroy it. Can they heal the curse on Alvarick’s skin without losing him to the mages, or will Velden make the ultimate sacrifice and hope for better results in the next life?

The heart wants what it wants…
My life is a carefully constructed lie. I’m in love with my best friend, but the way I feel could get us both killed. So as long as we stay here on the dusty ranch, I can never tell him how I feel. And if we leave, we’ll have nothing but the shirts on our backs.
But when Josh is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, fate forces my hand. I steal him away, where it’s just the two of us against the world. I will do anything to keep him safe. I’ll steal. I’ll fight. I’ll tell lies.
Yet I can’t tell Josh how I feel.
I can’t tell him that this is all my fault.
And kissing him in the back of a stranger’s truck wasn’t exactly part of the plan…
Contains: first times, impossible choices, awkward confessions and love up against the kitchen counter.

In 1846 London, respectable young men do not fall for street thieves. This is the love story of Oliver Twist and the Artful Dodger.
Oliver Twist has one desire: to own a bookshop and live a simple, middle-class life, far away from his workhouse-shadowed past. One thing stands in his way: Jack Dawkins–The Artful Dodger–who’s just returned to London and is looking for Fagin’s old gang.
Jack’s visits cause Oliver nothing but trouble, but he finds himself drawn, time and again, to their shared past, Jack’s unguarded honesty, and those bright, green eyes.
Oliver craves respectability, which he won’t find with a forbidden love. Can Jack convince Oliver that having one doesn’t mean losing the other?
A gay, m/m Victorian-era romance with grumpy/sunshine, hurt/comfort, opposites attract, emotional scars, and pure, sweet love. A little sweet, a little steamy, with a guaranteed HEA.
