honeymoonRemember not to get drunk married to your best friend. It’s not rocket science. Stefan It was supposed to be a fun weekend trip with all my friends. The next thing I know, a splitting headache is waking me up on a plane to who knows where and there’s a ring on my finger. What?! Next to me is Marco, my best friend in the world, my favorite person, and… My husband? His ring matches mine and the marriage certificate in my handbag definitely has both our names on it. But this is ridiculous. I’ve seen a marriage go sideways; I’ve seen my parents destroy each other with hatred. And I swore never to be like them. Never marry, never fall in love. Especially not to the best guy ever because he doesn’t deserve to get hurt like that. Marco and I have a perfectly functional arrangement. We do whatever we feel like, but we never ever become boyfriends. It’s just safer to separate a relationship from having fun with each other. And, as we find ourselves on a romantic – and fake – honeymoon, I start to ask myself: have we been dating all along? Marco Stefan made me promise never to fall in love with him. And the thing about me is that I always keep a promise. We have a deal; we fool around, but we don’t let our feelings get involved. And it’s better that way. Stefan doesn’t believe in happy endings and I don’t deserve him. Or anyone. I’d already lucked out once in my life when a wealthy family adopted me. How much more could I ask for? Except, having to spend a week with him in the most romantic place on the planet is making all the lines blurry. Are we just messing around like we always do or is there something more? Is one week enough to convince Stefan that not all relationships end in flames? And is a week enough to convince myself that I should love myself before letting someone else love me, too? The more I think, the more I see: this marriage is a total joke.

underdogLife in foster care wasn’t easy. Life after prison? Unforgiving. But I’m determined to stay out of trouble, and I’m gaining a foothold on the closest I’ve ever known to normal. Then, thanks to a pair of escape artist dogs from the sanctuary where I’ve found work, I cross paths with my boss’s neighbor, Ty Adams. He’s a horse trainer, and winter is his quiet season. It’s also the season when he gets restless and lonely—two things I know all about. He’s not interested in love or romance. I’m just happy someone’s interested in me at all, even if emotions are strictly forbidden. When we’re not together, I’m thinking about him. When we are together… Well, I’m definitely thinking about what he does to me and what I want to do with him. As we keep each other warm through the Vermont winter, this feels a lot more than physical. Somehow he soothes my pain, and I wonder if I’m touching something deep inside him too. But Ty won’t let himself love anyone. I never had a chance. And now, with my past closing in, I could lose the one man I hoped I could count on. The one I thought might be different. When his present and my history collide, is it too much to hope he’ll choose me?

Falling for my childhood sweetheart wasn’t part of the plan.

Moving back to Heather Bay wasn’t on Oliver’s agenda for the summer, but after inheriting a cottage in dire need of renovation, he doesn’t have much choice. Supervising the builders should be easy…except the man in charge is Oliver’s childhood best friend and ex-boyfriend.

Lane’s spent nine years desperately trying to forget his first love, but that doesn’t stop him from fantasizing about Oliver in every spare moment once he discovers Oliver’s back in town. Falling into bed together isn’t supposed to mean anything, even if Lane’s emotions feel too big to be ignored.

Being drawn to each other is one thing, but being stuck together after disaster strikes the renovations is another. The pull of the past is strong, but Oliver and Lane have been down this road before. This time they’ll need to learn from their mistakes so they can finally keep their promises.

Like I Promised is a steamy second-chance contemporary MM romance featuring former childhood sweethearts, interfering friends, questionable barbecues, a very lazy Collie, cozy coffee shops, and secret beaches.

A sly fox has me chasing his, ahem, tail. I hate that I love it, but there’s no way I’m falling in love. Is there?

Omega fox Duncan Dougherty is a laid-back, fun-loving guy. A little too laid back. After a blow-up argument with his family, Duncan takes off, looking for adventure and freedom. He stumbles onto the Bolder territory, where he takes one look at grumpy alpha wolf Jorik and makes it his life’s mission to rile him up and make him smile. The chase is on, and it leads to a blistering heat. Duncan doesn’t want to be tied down. Or does he?

Alpha wolf Jorik Bolder doesn’t want to fall in love. He’s too short-tempered and too busy with his extended family to think about a mate and pups of his own. That is, until a wily fox appears on his territory and teases him until he has no choice but to give chase. When he catches the fox, there are fireworks. The problem is, Jorik’s still hurting from a tragedy is his past, and doesn’t know how to open up. Will he let his dream fox leave?

What happens when the big bad wolf catches the mischievous fox? Can the lovers open up enough to share their love for one another? What about the little surprise that comes from Duncan’s heat?

This is the third book in the Seven Corner Shifters series. It can be read as a standalone, but is best enjoyed in series order. This book has a HEA and contains occasional strong language, MPREG, and hot, spicy grownup stuff. The omegas are heating up and the alphas are very knotty boys.

It’ll be a piece of cake.

Alpha Ambrose is supposed to be out of town for the weekend, but his plans fall through. Instead, a colleague asks him to take his place at the Bachelor Cake Auction. Ambrose protests because he can’t cook, but his friend provides the baked goodie—a pavlova of meringue slathered with cream and tropical fruit—saying no one will find out he can’t boil water.

Omega Leyland and a friend’s vacation is ruined when a computer glitch grounds their plane and postpones their trip for a week. There’s more bad news when his friend can’t change his vacation days. Though he’s not in the mood to celebrate, Leyland attends the Bake Sale Auction because the money raised is for a children’s wing at the local hospital.

After a winning bid and confusion about the date package Ambrose is supposed to have arranged, Leyland takes charge and suggests the alpha accompany him on his tropical vacation because his friend can’t make it. They’ll have separate rooms, of course, because they’ll be staying in a villa.

The omega describes a holiday filled with warm sunny days on the beach, balmy nights outdoors eating seafood delicacies, along with midnight swims in their private pool, set against a backdrop of tropical scents and the soft lapping of ocean waves.

How can Ambrose refuse?

Pavlova Passion is the fourth book in the Bake Sale Bachelors Season Four series. It features an alpha who rarely makes spur-of-the-moment decisions,an omega who isn’t content to sit still,eccentric guests at the resort who’ll entertain you with their antics, an adorable baby, and a summer vacation filled with tropical flowers, passion, and love.

All four bestselling Geek Ink books together in one box set—the complete M/M romance series featuring geeks and bad boys!

Geek Tattoo

Stone is straight. That’s the first reason the brooding tattoo artist can’t be the one for geeky animator Matty. But when the two men enter into a fake relationship, cuddling up close starts to feel far, far too real.

Crave Me

Dedicated botanist Milo is a babbling sweetheart. Tattoos are not his style, but when his friends convince him to get some ink, he ends up in the chair of Joey, a silent, troubled artist. In the quiet drone of the shop, desire bubbles beneath the surface until a fateful blizzard blows through town, and their surprising connection ignites into something neither man expected.

Just a Kiss

Alexander has always been secretly in love with his best friend and roommate Rafael, who remains blissfully oblivious. When Rafael starts an apprenticeship at the tattoo shop, his confidence grows, and Alexander’s pining spikes. Rafael doesn’t do relationships, and Alexander doesn’t do casual. But that’s no reason to turn down the friends-with-benefits arrangement that Rafael proposes, right?

Gruff Touch

Drew comes to town seeking to learn more about the father he’s never met, and grumpy tattoo artist Caesar is his only lead. Caesar pushes the bright young man away. He doesn’t want to revisit his past, and especially not with a stranger half his age. But something deep inside Drew insists that Caesar should be his, if only he can get the old grump to see it, too.

After years of cruelty, how do you learn to trust? To love?

It’s 2022 and I live in the world of the British nobility, a secret society of magic, mages and vessels.

I’m just a vessel. A person who grows and absorbs magic within them, but cannot wield it.

On my eighteenth birthday, they gave me to a mage. From that day onwards, every seven days for four long years, he took my body to take my magic.

Until someone stole me away and gave me to Archie. The Earl of Hathbury.

Archie is kind, yet giving him my body, and my magic is daunting. But it is my duty, and a necessity. As a vessel, I need a mage to regularly empty me or I could die.

Archie is understanding and gentle, and it’s not long before I fall for him. Finding my duty more of a pleasure.

Archie also seems to enjoy our time together more than is proper, and I am hopeful.

But can I trust him? Am I really safe? Can I ever be truly free?

High angst. Medium heat. Happy ever after guaranteed.

Center Logan Banks didn’t come to Miami looking for a best friend.

He came for football and for a chance at freedom—the freedom to live out of the closet.

But after a water main break, he lands an unexpected roommate, the new Piranhas kicker, Dylan Leonard. Between practices, games, and too many late nights on the couch, a best friend is exactly what he gets.

When Logan’s past rears its ugly head and threatens to destroy the freedom he’s hoped for, Dylan becomes more than just a friend. He becomes a lifeline.

But then their friendship gets incorrectly labeled as something more, and Dylan shocks Logan by suggesting they play along with a fake relationship.

Logan knows it’s off limits to fall in love with Dylan. He’s supposed to be straight, he’s his best friend, his roommate, and his teammate. But the closer they grow, and the more he and Dylan fake falling in love, the more real it feels.

The more real Logan wants it to be.

Making a play for love is the biggest risk he’s ever taken, but he wants it all and he wants it with Dylan.

Rule #1: Never give up on love.

Hockey is Noah Boucher’s life. He even walked away from a chance at a relationship for a career as a star goaltender. But when an injury sidelines him and he crosses paths with the man he left behind, everything changes.

Noah is determined to have it all: a return to the ice, one final season to lead the Toronto Fisher Cats to the Cup—and a future with Simon Lawrence.

Simon is stunned to see Noah again, and all of his old feelings come rushing back, along with off-the charts chemistry. But Simon has been burned by relationships in the past, and his own career as a photographer and gallery owner is at a turning point. Trusting Noah to put him first—even while struggling to reconnect with his team and dealing with media scrutiny—is a tall order.

When catastrophe strikes just as the playoffs are heating up, Noah will have to make a choice: risk the man he loves or bend the rules to prove this time, Simon comes first.

Divorced. Beaten down. A failure. Until a ray of sunshine comes into my life…

People call me Officer Grumpypants, but wouldn’t you be if life kept knocking you down?

My life is an endless sh*t list that I can’t even begin to unravel.

It all started when my parents died.

It continued when I was forced to sell my house.

And it all came to an epic conclusion when my wife walked out on me.

What I need is to get my mind in order and my life back on track.

So when my old commander offers me a job in Mayberry Holm, I grab the opportunity by the balls.

I’m ready to put my head down and my hands to work.

What I wasn’t planning though was becoming pet food for crows by this infuriating little man who throws seeds at my face.

Or being hired to help said man with his new store.

Or having to protect him from a bunch of criminals that prey on his softness and sweetness.

Even though he drives me insane, I can’t stop thinking of him. And even though he’s annoyingly cheerful, I can’t help but smile around him.

Or fantasize about him doing… naughty things to me.

What the hell is happening to me? Am I falling for the young, bubbly, pink-haired man? And is it too late to stop it?

Welcome to Mayberry Holm, a small island in the Atlantic full of crime, secrets and happily-ever-afters, and the ex-Navy SEALs that come to deal with them all.

My fated mate leads our rival pack. Can our forbidden love flourish, or will a terrible secret rip us apart?

Omega wolf Larkin Bolder was raised by his much-older brothers after a tragedy rocked the family. Back home from college, he’s all grown up, but they still treat him like a pup. Then Larkin meets his fated mate, Tracer Ramirez. He’s handsome, older, tough, doting and…the lead alpha of the rival pack, with whom the Bolder pack has a barely-stabilized feud. Larkin isn’t afraid of love. He’s ready to walk in, eyes and heart open. The problem is, Tracer’s keeping something from him. Something related to the feud. When the secret’s revealed, will it tear them apart?

Tracer Ramirez is lead alpha of his territory, and he keeps his bachelor pack well in line. Now in his late thirties, he never thought he’d find love, get mated, or have babies. When it turns out that Larkin Bolder, the sweet, brave, much-younger brother of the rival Bolder pack is his fated mate, Tracer does his best to stay away. He can’t resist an omega like Larkin for long, though, and the two begin a sweet love affair, but in the back of Tracer’s mind looms the secret that just might doom them, and turn the lives of their packs and everyone on their territory’s lives upside-down.

Will Larkin and Tracer’s bond start an all-out war? What happens when Larkin finds out the secret everyone’s been keeping from him? How will Larkin and Tracer find a way to stay together?

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.

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?

Circles of Light is 75,000 words of M/M Romantic Fantasy goodness with a happy-for-now ending. This can be read as the first book of the Farbonnur Elves series. (Check out the prequel, Stone of Power, for more delicious backstory, and read Hives of Sorrow next!) CoL has experienced grump/virgin sunshine fated mates, a misunderstood prophecy, interference from a goddess, a failed blood mage, an elven sidekick still looking for a tree of legend, a cuddly giant enby with wings, and blood mages controlling armies of Empty (zombies).

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.

Someone’s waiting for Eli. Somebody’s watching his every move…

 Eli is used to looking after himself. Single for longer than he’d care to admit, he doesn’t need a man for more than a hookup, not when he’s got his loyal dog, Zeus, by his side.

But one night changes the course of his life. He meets Dominic, an actual copper and not the stripper he thought his best friend had hired for his birthday. A copper that has relationship written all over him and Eli set in his sights.

After his night out celebrating, another gift awaits him at home—but not a pleasant one. His birthday may be over, but the threats keep coming. Keep escalating. Keep hurting those close to him. Just how far will the monster behind them go? And how much will Eli lose before he can stop them?

What happens when a quiet boy with a secret falls for his best friend? 

Finn has always kept people at arm’s length. Being quiet and shy doesn’t get you many friends outside your family, and it’s even harder when you’re running a spicy, secret side project.

But Gem might be the exception to the rule. The game designer is clever, self-deprecating, and appreciates Finn’s affection for all things nerdy. He’s the one man who can find the real Finn…if Finn lets him in.

When Gem asks for Finn’s help opening a new board game store, it brings the two of them closer than ever before. Soon things become complicated as lines of friendship blur between them, and Finn begins to worry Gem will find out his secret.

But maybe that wouldn’t be as bad as it seems. Maybe Gem already knows the secret Finn’s keeping. All he has to do is convince Finn to share….

Finding Finn is a 78,000-word contemporary MM romance featuring late-night shop shenanigans, far too many nosy siblings with no boundaries, two best friends, and some steamy audio fantasies. It contains no love triangle, no cheating, and no angst.

We think we’re fooling everyone with our fake relationship, but maybe we are the only fools around.

Caleb

Nobody ever looks past the mask I wear. Nobody bothers to scratch the surface. Not until I meet Jayden Harris, the adorably bossy scholarship student with a razor-sharp focus and an unbreakable determination to be the best of us all.

He says he doesn’t have time for dating. He says I’m just a player. Yet every chance we get, we orbit one another. If I could prove to him that I’m worth falling in love with, he might change his mind.

But asking him to be my fake boyfriend for a massive family gathering probably wasn’t my greatest idea. Dad is tearing us apart and my will to fight for control over my life is fading. My plan is ruined.

We’re a lost cause, but I just…can’t…let him go.

Jayden

It was just a one-time thing. And then a two-time thing. And a three-time thing… Before I know it, I’m in his fancy car, heading to the Wine Country for an extended weekend. My mission? Be the loving boyfriend you bring home to meet the parents.

I’m risking my scholarship and my future at the elite Highgate Academy for a charming stranger in need of a boyfriend. Why? I wish I could tell you. All I know is that Caleb’s funny, hot as hell, and has the most adorable secret ever.

But there’s more to him than I imagined. The wealth he enjoys traps him; his father controls him. And he thinks I’m the key to his freedom.

I’m doing my best to convince everyone that we’re a couple.

But maybe I’d be wise to remind myself that we are not.

The Fake Boyfriends Debacle is the first installment of the Frat Brats of Santa Barbara series. It features two strangers falling head over heels for each other, a big, crazy family, an elite private school bustling with hot, adventurous guys, steam to make you sweat, and a grand happy ending that’ll make you swoon. You know you want it.

Where one dream ends, another begins.

Alpha lion shifter Cormac always dreamed of opening his own restaurant. It wasn’t until he came across an auction listing for a rundown house near the shore that he believed it was possible. Now he’s living his best life, converting the old mansion into everything he ever wanted—almost everything, anyway.

Omega wolf shifter Vaughn is back in town with his tail between his legs. His perfect job in the big city turned out to be anything but after his boss was arrested for running a ponzi scheme leaving Vaughn blackballed.

At least he can couch surf and he has a job lined up at the hardware store.

When Vaughn is convinced to try the dating app Love and Hate, he expects to find more than a date and possibly a friend. Is he in for a surprise?

Matched to His Lion is the eleventh book in the sweet with knotty heat Dates of Our Lives series, an M/M mpreg shifter dating app romance brought to you by the popular co-writing duo of Lorelei M Hart and Colbie Dunbar. It features a lion shifter finally realizing his life-long dream, a wolf shifter starting over after his world was shattered, fated mates, true love, an adorable baby, and a guaranteed happy ever after.

In a distant future, in a world ravaged by a toxic war, mechanics are now the ruling class. Taliesin is a peaceful fisherman on the isle of Ethia, bearing only a large scar on his forearm from the toxic rains that ravage the planet.

One day, he is caught up in a toxic storm and saved by the renegade mechanic Merrick. They fall in love and find a tropical paradise they name “Paradise Island”. Merrick then brings Taliesin back to Ethia, promising to return after fixing his mechanical sailboat. If they were to be separated, they vow to meet again on “Paradise Island”, but Merrick never returns.

After hearing that Merrick may have been arrested for piracy, Taliesin attempts to board a mechanical galleon to the city and a mysterious man offers him to play the role of the lost prince and pretend to marry his own son in exchange for Merrick’s freedom. Little does Taliesin know that memories will resurface, confirming he was actually the lost prince, the son of the man who ordered the kidnapping of Merrick as a child and the murder of his mother…

Once upon a time, I moved to Vermont… and wound up accidentally sort of married.

Webb Sunday is the straight single dad next door.

He’s lumberjack-gorgeous,

Strong and steady as the trees in his family orchard,

A grumpy fairytale prince…

And entirely off-limits.

Or so I thought.

Until the drunken night the two of us walked into a bar…

And landed ourselves in the middle of small-town history.

Who knew hand-fasting was still a thing?

The town of Little Pippin Hollow did.

And once this bunch of meddling Vermonters gets wind of our accidental betrothal, they are determined to see us seal the deal.

But while the chemistry between us is hot enough to melt the winter cold, Webb isn’t interested in a relationship…

And I’m not sure how long I can keep pretending I don’t want our hand-fasting to be real.

Because while the man might not be the happily ever after I came to Vermont for…

He’s looking more and more like the one who’s been hand-picked for me.

Is it worth taking a chance on love?

Alpha dragon shifter Seymour is a successful artist with his own gallery. His lifestyle is hectic as, apart from creating his paintings, there are always openings and charity functions to attend, as well as preparing exhibitions. He takes his first vacation in years, and after hearing about a small town on the coast, he heads to the beach.

Omega Irvin is an aspiring painter, but in order to pay the bills, he’s a waiter in a small but well-known restaurant at the beach. When he’s not painting or working, he’s cycling along the coast or watching soap operas with his elderly landlady.

On two different days, at different times—or perhaps it’s the same time on the same day—Seymour and Irvin encounter Mr. Lucas and his nephew, Harry, on the beach. The tide brings a message in a bottle for each man, and Mr. Lucas insists they read it. Irvin isn’t impressed with the note he receives, but Seymour ends up at Irvin’s restaurant where the omega is his assigned waiter.

Two artists. One striving to make a name for himself in the art universe, while the other is taking a break from the same world. Is their meeting destined to be only career-related or something else?

Make Mine A Dragon is the fourth book in the M/M mpreg shifter, sweet-with-knotty-heat series. It features an alpha dragon who’s suffering career burnout, an omega who juggles earning money with his passion for creating stunning paintings, a pair of matchmakers who achieve their matches in a roundabout way, a baby—of course—and a happy ever after.

Venomous snakes for hair.
A glare that will cast people to stone.
Beheaded by the tragic Greek hero, Perseus.

It’s a safe assumption that we all know the basic facts about one of Greek Mythology’s most famous monsters, Medusa; the beautiful maiden cursed and turned into a Gorgon. Her tragic story and death at the hands of the hero, Perseus, has been told countless times for thousands of years.

But the thing with Greek Mythology is just that. They are myths. Narrated, fictional legends as old as time that have been passed down from generation to generation. Time has a way of changing the original tale. So, how can we be sure that the myths we think we know are the real story?

What if important aspects of these myths have been altered? What if the monster wasn’t really a monster at all? What if Medusa wasn’t actually Medusa? What if her name was Meduso? And what if she wasn’t a her, but a him? This is the tale of Meduso and his death at the hands of the hero Perseus’ sword. It is a tale of innocence, love, betrayal, and tragedy.

I was only looking to grow my business, now I’m stuck dealing with a baker whose sunshine and lollipop outlook proves to be a monumental pain in my butt. Friends say I need to learn to have fun, and Parker could be the one to teach me. The more time I spend with him, the more I feel they may be right. Now, I want forever, but I don’t know how to ask for it.

Aleron Eastaughffe is a billionaire griffin who knows what he wants…

Namely, a gorgeous city penthouse, a life of luxury, and the respect and admiration of his peers-–all the things he’s come to expect as one of the Eastaughffes. But when Aleron finds himself connected to a rag-tag group of shifters and forced to work alongside the most awkward yet utterly captivating human witch in all the realms… he realizes he might want something very different after all.

Spencer Walsh is a witch who knows where he belongs…

And that is alone, in his remote cabin, where there are no annoying people around to give him strange looks when he spends his days reading, or to complain when he gets hyper-focused on research and forgets they exist. But when an old friend needs help researching a mysterious set of runes, Spencer joins forces with a group of shifters–and one gorgeous, provoking griffin–and learns that the world might just be more accepting than he thought… and more dangerous than he ever dreamed.

If Aleron and Spencer want a chance at a future together, they’ll have to let go of what they think they know, and face some hard truths together…

The truth about the runes and the magic they hold.

The truth about what love and belonging really mean.

And the truth about how much they’ll compromise to make each other happy… and how hard they’ll fight to keep each other safe.

Beheaded by the tragic Greek hero, Perseus.

It’s a safe assumption that we all know the basic facts about one of Greek Mythology’s most famous monsters, Medusa; the beautiful maiden cursed and turned into a Gorgon. Her tragic story and death at the hands of the hero, Perseus, has been told countless times for thousands of years.

But the thing with Greek Mythology is just that. They are myths. Narrated, fictional legends as old as time that have been passed down from generation to generation. Time has a way of changing the original tale. So, how can we be sure that the myths we think we know are the real story?

What if important aspects of these myths have been altered? What if the monster wasn’t really a monster at all? What if Medusa wasn’t actually Medusa? What if her name was Meduso? And what if she wasn’t a her, but a him? This is the tale of Meduso and his death at the hands of the hero Perseus’ sword. It is a tale of innocence, love, betrayal, and tragedy.

When Bryant breaks into the ship of a powerful Qeshian emissary, he knows he might get caught. But he needs the money to save his daughter, and for her anything is worth the risk.

People fall in love with their best friends all the time. But for me, the circumstances of this unrequited attraction are even more agonizing.

I am gay.

My best friend, Sawyer, is not.

Since we were fifteen, I’ve harbored this torturous crush. Now, as we both enter our thirties, it seems time to resign myself to the fact that nothing is going to come of it. Ever.

Or so I thought…

One night, a bottle of gin and a little uncharacteristic self-pity were all the inspiration I needed to launch into a ramble about being alone because I’m bad at everything – even kissing. Determined to prove me wrong, Sawyer decided to shut me up with a kiss.

I know he meant for it to be innocent.

Turns out it was anything but.

Sparks flew as we unlocked a side of Sawyer he never knew existed. Now, more than anything, he wants me by his side forever. But this realization comes with its own set of obstacles. Can we learn to lean on each other as we build a future together? Or will the stresses of our day to day lives tear us apart?

Scarred lips resting on polished tusks…horned eyebrows over electric orange eyes… He was breathtaking.

Oliver Turner has been given one last chance to regain his rightful position by his father’s side, running the family corporation, but he can’t keep his eyes off his klah’eel bodyguard. Oliver wants the man with an intensity that both scares and shocks him, and he’s terrified of letting the desire pass him by after being so afraid for so long that he’d never desire a man again. But Oliver has spent his whole life chasing the love and approval of his father, and he can’t let that slip through his fingers when he’s so close.

Captain Mal’ik can’t believe that the yearning, longing scent pouring from the beautiful human man he’s been assigned to protect is for him. Mal’ik has been a soldier for decades and bears the proof of it in his mangled face and metal arm. Surely the prissy, brilliant young man can’t want him of all people. And yet, the way Oliver Turner looks at Mal’ik makes him feel like he could be so much more than just the scarred tool of an empire.

As Oliver and Mal’ik wrestle with their surprising and unfamiliar feelings, the tense political situation surrounding them explodes into chaos. They will both be forced to make choices they never thought they’d make. Is it even possible for them to choose each other?

The Alien Bodyguard is a steamy M/M romance with an HEA ending, set directly after the events of The Alien Emissary. Reading Emissary isn’t required, but it is highly encouraged, as Bodyguard contains spoilers for Emissary and includes Emissary’s main characters.
