brutalDevante is a vicious hitman. Micah is a pawn in a deadly quest. Kiss or kill? Devante faces the toughest choice of his life… Another day, another hit. Only this time, Devante’s orders don’t follow the typical script. How did he, the most brutal killer on the payroll of the powerful Zakarian family, get stuck escorting a nerdy ancient artifacts expert around the world? The sooner they can locate the priceless treasure his boss craves, the sooner Devante can dispatch his charge and move on with his life. If only the sweet young thing weren’t so damn cute and sexy. Such perfect boy material. Despite the curious circumstances of his mission, Micah is thrilled to be chosen to hunt down an unattainable—ancient artifacts that are one of a kind, believed to be either myth or forever lost. The mere thought that he could be the one to unearth the crown jewel of Atlantis makes Micah shove good sense to the side. Unfortunately, the brutish bodyguard who’s been assigned to accompany him is rude, pushy, snarly and too effing hot for words. No way would Micah ever hand over his V-card to such a jerk. Nope. It’ll never happen. The hunt intensifies and danger surrounds them at every turn. No one can be trusted. Ultimately, will Devante kill Micah, or protect and keep him? Either way he loses. If Devante doesn’t complete his mission he’ll be the next target. Note: Brutal is part of the Ruthless Daddies multi-author collab and a complete standalone. Expect to find a murderous Daddy with an unrelenting protective urge, a nerdy boy who hasn’t a clue he’s about to be owned, plus action, adventure, plenty of steam and a satisfying HEA. Check out the Look Inside feature for potentially strong triggers. Want more deliciously morally gray Daddies and boys? Grab the whole series!

Alpha of the Penhul pack with a human mate? Never going to happen.6A649FAF-652E-4B94-8F3B-5AFB72CA0BB2

Addison knows grief can do strange things to people, but when he’s wandering Pendle Hill and witnesses a dog leap out of thin air, he thinks he must be going crazy. When the border collie morphs into a man—a very naked man—he has to be dreaming. Only when he wakes to find himself cold and alone, locked inside a bare stone room does he wonder if it was the start of a nightmare. As the youngest alpha the Penhul pack has ever had, Drake knows he has a lot to prove. Increasing their dwindling numbers is hard enough but convincing his pack they can do so by working alongside humans is like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. He was taught, as all familiars are, that humans can’t be trusted, especially not with their secret. It’s no surprise, then, that he has no idea what to do when a member of his own pack brings a human prisoner to their den. But he’s definitely not prepared for the reaction the human elicits from him. Can Drake put aside their differences, and Addison come to accept their similarities, to save the Penhul pack from danger? A threat that may end up costing Drake not only his life but that of his fated mate? This M/M romance from Beth Laycock features enemies to lovers, forced proximity, fated mates, sexy men that shift into adorable dogs, and of course a happy ending. Book 1 of the Penhul pack series.

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?

painHe’s unleashed. Unprepared. And thoroughly screwed. Dylan’s life in the spellster tower has everything he should want: magical knowledge, safety from the King’s Hounds and frequent clandestine affairs with women. All at the cost of his freedom. So when the chance to leave the tower—even as a leashed weapon for the King’s Army—arises, he seizes it. When his first scouting mission goes awry, Dylan is left alone in a hostile world with the tower a distant beacon of safety. Only the flirtatious Tracker, an elven man whose very presence awakens Dylan’s long-repressed desire, can help him return to his old life before the crown discovers his unleashed status.

Life, such as his can be called one, has become predictable. Humans are predictable. Add in the fact he’d rather not feed from them, and a visit with a witch friend of his clan is a welcome distraction. But when he meets Benedict, it’s anything but predictable, especially when he stumbles across the man transforming into a dog before his eyes. And never in an eternity did he think he would find himself wanting to drink the mutt’s blood. As beta of the Penhul pack, Benedict knows pack comes first, like having to spend weeks away in the Lake District on pack business. But the last thing Benedict expects to find when he returns is his brother having found his fated mate, or worse, a vampire feeding from his witch.

Can Benedict see past their differences and put aside his prejudices of vampires? Or will his choice of mate cost him his pack?

winterIt’s been a long, cold winter at Riverside Ranch, where Robbie has lived alone since his brothers moved away. Alone, that is, except for his three devious cats, four saddle horses, and the forty-eight mustangs that roam the ranch. Robbie is preparing for yet another snowfall when he gets the last call he expected—a plea to pick up Lance Taylor from the county jail. Lance wasn’t just his little brother’s best friend, he was a part of the family. Then, one night, after Lance asked Robbie for something Robbie couldn’t give, he ran away and never came back. Lance was sixteen and heartbroken when he left his middle-of-nowhere hometown. Six years later, he’s at rock bottom with nowhere else to go, and no one to turn to but Robbie, the man Lance has been inconveniently in love with for most of his life. When Robbie offers Lance a place to stay, Lance expects a guest bedroom and awkward silences. Instead, he finds himself sharing Robbie’s one-room hayloft apartment and its single bed, while realizing that the old flame he carries for Robbie might not be so hopeless, after all.

Book of the week!

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.

I fell in love with the enemy. Twice.

Hudson

For my twenty-first, I threw a masquerade party and met the most exciting guy on the planet, dressed as a fallen angel. Then, I never saw him again.

And just when I think my life is perfect, in walks my nemesis, Tate Anderson.

The guy’s got no finesse. He looks down on everyone, especially me. So, when the mischievous wannabe matchmaker of a professor forces me into a project with none other than Tate, I seriously consider dropping out.

Except, the more time I spend with him, and the more we growl and bark at each other, the tighter my chest feels around him.

To put him out of my mind and escape the feelings I’d kept at bay for so long, I keep throwing the biggest parties in the city. Like some modern version of Jay Gatsby, I hope to run into my mysterious fallen angel, but he’s ever so elusive.

Until he shows up again.

And I take his mask off…

Tate

My life sucks but don’t make a mistake thinking I would let anyone know. Especially not Hudson Blackwood. That guy’s gloating enough already. Ugh… He laughs too much, pretends he’s so cool, nothing really bothers him.

Well, except the fact he’s stuck with me on a semester-long project. But I’m stuck with him just as much. He’s also hot as hell and knows it, which makes him infinitely more annoying.

And if that’s not enough, my stepmother is spending the last of my late dad’s fortune on her two sons and I have to study every waking moment to keep my scholarship.

The only escape I’ve had since coming to Santa Barbara were the masquerade parties a tall, handsome guy dressed as The Phantom keeps throwing.

Before I know it, I am hurtling into love and I hate it. I know my stepmother will uproot me again before the year is done. Besides, I don’t even know who this smoking hot Phantom is. This can only end one way, and it’s not good.

It’s just better for everyone if the masks stay on.

The Bitter Rivals Fiasco is an enemies-to-lovers story featuring one certified player, his moody, lifelong rival, and a Cinderella-meets-Great-Gatsby storyline. This is the fourth book in the Frat Brats of Santa Barbara series. While it can be read on its own, it’s just more fun to read them in order, since the series follows a group of friends as they grow and mature at a prestigious, boys-only business school, Highgate Academy.

Once upon a time if you told doctors you heard voices,
they’d diagnose you as schizophrenic, put you on heavy drugs,
and lock you away in a cozy state institution
to keep you from hurting yourself or others.
Nowadays they test you first to see if you’re psychic.

Victor Bayne, the psychic half of a PsyCop team, is a gay medium who’s more concerned with flying under the radar than making waves.

He hooks up with handsome Jacob Marks, a non-psychic (or “Stiff”) from an adjacent precinct at his ex-partner’s retirement party, and it seems like his dubious luck has taken a turn for the better. But then a serial killer surfaces who can change his appearance to match any witness’ idea of the world’s hottest guy.

Solving murders is a snap when you can ask the victims whodunit, but this killer’s not leaving any spirits behind.

Among the Living is book 1 of PsyCop, an ongoing M/M Urban Fantasy series featuring steamy love scenes, astonishing psychic talents, gruesome murders, and a slew of creepy otherworldly creatures.

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.

An emotional, sexy, forbidden romance! Scoring with Him is the first novel in the utterly addictive Men of Summer Series!

I’m a rookie, in every sense of the word. But even though I have a wicked crush on the sexy shortstop on my baseball team, I won’t give in to my fantasies about him.

I’m here in the majors for the first time to play ball. Not to experience my first time with a man.

Trouble is, Declan Steele is sexy, flirty and now he’s my new workout partner. We’re spending mornings together in the gym, getting to know each other. Our connection is powerful – maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars. Ones we’ll both fight to protect.

I’ve got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present, no matter how much I long to sneak into his room at night and ask him a question.

But soon I can’t keep all this desire under wraps.

I take chances for a living, so I take the biggest chance one night at spring training when I send him the world’s sexiest selfie.

Right along with a question – would you be my first?

But falling for my teammate wasn’t part of the plan.

Omega wolf shifter Mac has always dreamed of bigger and better things–or more specifically, anything that isn’t pack life. He yearns for bright lights, loud music, excitement, and a wide variety of people… but instead, he’s been stuck in the woods, in his brother’s shadow for his entire life. And even worse, everyone still treats him like a pup needing supervision. But he’s been working hard and saving his money, and at long last, his moment of freedom has arrived. It’s time to rebel.

When human alpha Giles finishes his construction job in Dusk Fall, the last thing he expects is to be handed a babysitting gig. But when he learns that his job is to show Mac a good time in the city, all while keeping him safe, he finds he doesn’t mind the responsibility. Everyone sees Mac as the pack darling, in need of coddling, and who can blame him for wanting to stretch his legs. And if anyone knows how to have a good time, it’s Giles.

Neither of them intend to act on their physical attraction. After all, they’re all kinds of opposite: shifter and human, big city and small town, and more importantly, alpha and omega. But when it comes right down to it, maybe they’re not as different as they first thought. In fact… they might just be the right kind of wrong.

Harper B. Cole, Colbie Dunbar, and Trisha Linde bring you Rebel, the fourth book in the Fairest of Them All series. This fairytale retelling of The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse features an omega wolf looking for his place in the world, an alpha willing to show him the way, electric chemistry impossible for them to ignore, an unexpected pregnancy, an adorable baby, and an HEA. If you love stories about when opposites attract, grab your copy today.

Alec

I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. What I do is tour with my band and enjoy the life we worked so hard to earn. When I’m home, my favorite escort is always happy to join me in bed.

Except he’s not an escort anymore. He has, however, hand-picked someone to replace him. I’m dubious because I hate change, but I’ll give this new guy a chance.

And I will not fall in love with him.

Bryce

This escort gig is seriously intimidating, and the last thing I expect is for my first client to be a literal rock star.

No, scratch that—it’s the second to last thing I expect.

The last thing?

How fast and hard I’m falling for him.

Gentlemen of the Emerald City Bryce is Book 3 of Gentlemen of the Emerald City, a sexy series centered around the high class, high-dollar Gentlemen of Seattle’s most exclusive escort service. Each book is full of snark, sass, and sweetness, and like any Emerald City client, you’re guaranteed a happy ending.

Finding my ex-fiancé beneath the man we invited into our relationship jaded my heart, and I refuse to share lovers ever again.

The dating app Missing Link offers me the chance to fulfill my desire of having two men love on me at the same time—without the crossing of swords.

Fate plays her games, and I end up separately dating two men at the same time, who as a whole, would be my dream come true.

The problem?

They’re roommates. Best friends. And neither knows the girl they claim to have fallen for is one and the same.

When the truth is uncovered, I perceive the unrequited love in one’s gaze and unrecognized feelings in the others.

But the fear of being set aside a second time comes too late.

I’m already in too deep.

*Trigger Warning: Contains a mention of past child abuse and sexual assault.

Faking their way through Christmas…

This year, Cooper Kincaid finds his perfect Christmas gift on the side of the road: Jonathan Ashe. So perfect, in fact, that he can’t resist unwrapping the gorgeous present and playing with him a little early, after taking Jon back to his cabin to recover from a minor car accident.

Jon seems to bring out something deep inside Cooper…something he’s tried to keep hidden from previous boyfriends. But their merrymaking is complicated when Cooper lies to his meddling mother, and tells her he’s dating Jon.

Jon has no interest in a new relationship after getting his heart broken. Definitely no interest in the heir to the Kincaid estate, where Jon is working for the holidays. And especially no interest in a guy who’s so new to finding his bossy side in bed.

Still, maybe a fake relationship could be fun, just for the holidays?

But Cooper has made up his mind: it’s his Christmas mission to heal Jon’s heart. He’s determined to work out exactly what Jon wants, and give it to him.

Meanwhile, Cooper’s disapproving mother not only invites his ex to their Christmas Eve event, she digs into Jon’s past to prove to Cooper that they’re totally unsuited.

Can Cooper and Jon admit that they might be each other’s winter wonderful, or will their differences and outside interference prove too much?

Winter Wonders is a standalone holiday romance novel with humor, just a dash of angst, and west-coast cool versus east-coast class. HFN/HEA guaranteed, and no cliffhangers.

Featuring: Snowed In, There’s Only One Bed, Hurt/Comfort, Fake Dating, Mistletoe Kisses and (naturally!) some naughty fun.

What happens when a prickly travel journalist falls for his fake boyfriend?

Oscar Moore has two problems. One, he’s accidentally managed to convince his boss, the legendary editor of The Traveller, that he has a boyfriend. And two, he now has to persuade photographer and casual acquaintance, Ilias Verrati, to play along for a weeklong couples retreat in Hawaii.

Ilias is full of sass and sunshine, but his constant flirting grates on Oscar. Unfortunately, unless Oscar wants to confess and risk his job, he has to keep up the ruse. He can manage a week, and if he can pull this off, then editorial glory awaits.

Oscar and Ilias both have their own reasons for avoiding relationships—even if they desperately want one—and their work makes finding love even more difficult, but maybe a fake relationship is just what they need to give them a nudge in the right direction.

Under the Hawaiian sun, Oscar discovers there’s more to Ilias than meets the eye. But before Ilias will risk his heart, Oscar will have to find a way to open it.

Oh So Oscar is a 78,000-word, contemporary MM romance featuring fake dating, luxurious hotel rooms, stargazing, and delicious food. It also contains discussions of grief including the past loss of a parent and the past loss of a partner.

Beta of the Penhul pack with a vampire? Over his dead body.

Lucian is bored. After a century of being a vampire, nothing surprises him anymore. Life, such as his can be called one, has become predictable. Humans are predictable. Add in the fact he’d rather not feed from them, and a visit with a witch friend of his clan is a welcome distraction. But when he meets Benedict, it’s anything but predictable, especially when he stumbles across the man transforming into a dog before his eyes. And never in an eternity did he think he would find himself wanting to drink the mutt’s blood.

As beta of the Penhul pack, Benedict knows pack comes first, like having to spend weeks away in the Lake District on pack business. But the last thing Benedict expects to find when he returns is his brother having found his fated mate, or worse, a vampire feeding from his witch. His homecoming definitely won’t go down as his finest moment, and he’s certainly not prepared for his reaction to the bloodsucker.

Can Benedict see past their differences and put aside his prejudices of vampires? Or will his choice of mate cost him his pack?

This MM romance from Beth Laycock features enemies to lovers, fated mates, a vampire with an aversion to feeding on humans, a sexy man that can shift into an adorable dog, and of course a HEA. The Beta’s Vampire is the second book in the Penhul pack series and should be read in order.

Book of the week!

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.

A temptation too hot to resist…

Alpha Lowell is a grumpy wolf shifter. Isolated, independent, and he doesn’t need anyone’s help. Except… he kind of needs some help. In this day and age, as big-city society encroaches on the wild, a lone wolf roaming the woods is more likely to get shot by a hunter—or worse. Lowell needs a pack. And it just so happens that the Dusk Fall pack is accepting new members. And even better, they love his baking enough to pay for it.

When omega human Hank and his alpha twin sister Greer are gifted with a wilderness scavenger hunt, they feel obligated to participate, no matter how much they don’t mesh with the woods. Things go exactly as you would expect for a couple city slickers without any experience with the outdoors. Hungry, tired, and lost, they stumble on a cabin filled with the most delicious scent. Pies of every flavor! Surely it wouldn’t hurt to take a bite…

When Lowell comes home to find a whole batch of pies ruined, he demands the twins make things right. It’s a good thing Hank knows his way around a kitchen. Alone all night with a sexy omega makes Lowell’s temperature rise, and it’s not only the oven that gets hot. There’s no question they have great chemistry, but is this bitter wolf sweet enough? Or will their attempt at a relationship fall flat?

Iason’s known worldwide for his romantic lyrics, but he never thought he’d fall in love. Will his luck change when the stars align to bring Orion into his life?

Iason Leyland

My love songs may have made me famous, but they were beautifully written lies that hid the fact I’ve never loved anyone. I had almost given up hope of finding true love, but then I meet him. Orion is all my wishes on stars who can make my dreams come true. He’s my perfect partner in every way except one: he’s straight. Why, universe? Why?

But the cosmic force that brought us together apparently knows what it’s doing based on the sweet way Orion blushes every time we’re together. Can I convince him that we could make beautiful music together that will be worthy of my most romantic ballad yet?

Orion Donati

I’ve been a fan of Iason and his beautiful voice and lyrics for years. I never expected him to know I even exist, let alone fall in love with me. But regardless of that impossibility, he looks at me like I’m the sun, the moon, and all the stars in his universe. As a straight man, I probably shouldn’t be interested, much less tempted by his flirtations. But despite that, everything in me wants a chance to be his magical muse for the songs I love so much.

Meeting him makes me realize that I’m not quite as straight as I thought. The most unbelievable thing of all is that someone as amazingly famous as him could ever want a shy nobody like me. But I don’t want to doubt his sincerity. I want to be brave enough to believe he’s interested in me for real.

Maybe I don’t have to settle for being a fan who adores him from afar. What if I dare to dream that I could be his boyfriend who loves him with all my heart instead?

Play By Heart is the first book in the Harmony of Hearts series and part of the Sunnyside universe. This novel features a bi awakening, insta love, rock star, shy/flirt, gay romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and no angst stories that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll enjoy this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone or as part of the series in order.

Alpha of the Penhul pack with a human mate? Never going to happen.

Addison knows grief can do strange things to people, but when he’s wandering Pendle Hill and witnesses a dog leap out of thin air, he thinks he must be going crazy. When the border collie morphs into a man—a very naked man—he has to be dreaming. Only when he wakes to find himself cold and alone, locked inside a bare stone room does he wonder if it was the start of a nightmare.

As the youngest alpha the Penhul pack has ever had, Drake knows he has a lot to prove. Increasing their dwindling numbers is hard enough but convincing his pack they can do so by working alongside humans is like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. He was taught, as all familiars are, that humans can’t be trusted, especially not with their secret. It’s no surprise, then, that he has no idea what to do when a member of his own pack brings a human prisoner to their den. But he’s definitely not prepared for the reaction the human elicits from him.

Can Drake put aside their differences, and Addison come to accept their similarities, to save the Penhul pack from danger? A threat that may end up costing Drake not only his life but that of his fated mate?

This M/M romance from Beth Laycock features enemies to lovers, forced proximity, fated mates, sexy men that shift into adorable dogs, and of course a happy ending. Book 1 of the Penhul pack series.
