shardsHope can be a prism of scars from which light shines.

Twenty years ago, an infamous scientist created Liquid Onyx, a world-changing chemical which led to the rise of superheroes and supervillains.

Jack Roth is not a superhero. He’s an assassin, a killer, a lethal weapon forged and controlled by the evil organisation Obsidian Inc.

Leo Snow isn’t a superhero either. He’s a British secret agent who spends his life protecting the world and saving everyone he can.

When these two men’s lives collide on the streets of Danger City just as Obsidian Inc is gearing up for another cataclysmic scientific discovery, they’ll both need to reckon with their dark past, messy present and potentially hopeful future.

vampireBeta 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.

buoyAndrew: I’ve traveled the world as a yacht steward for the past year, trying to outrun a broken heart and a mountain of debt. Then a gig as a chief stew on board a yacht in the Caribbean comes my way. The timing is right, the weather is perfect, and the pay is desperately needed.
There’s just one problem…

My billionaire boss, Rowan Carter, is way too distracting. With his charming British accent and sarcastic quips, Rowan commands all my attention and none of it is focused on work. I prepare to meet another entitled jerk when I step on board his ship, but it turns out that Rowan is the exception to the billionaire rule. And I get a first-hand glimpse of the kindhearted man behind the money.

The professional line between us melts away but I’ve been badly burned by a workplace relationship gone wrong. And Rowan and I live in two very different worlds. I can’t – shouldn’t – fall for Rowan Carter.

Oh boy. Too late.

Rowan: I run a real estate empire but being in the top one percent isn’t all fun and caviar. The family business has struggled these past two years and now the one place that was my refuge may be taken away from me. Add to that, I’m a target for the paparazzi because of a former relationship. I’ve never felt so alone. Lonely. Unmoored…

Until a dreamy American named Andrew Slater walks aboard my ship and into my life. Andrew takes delight in answering my snark with sarcastic retorts and his wit is matched by quiet acts of kindness.

Falling in love is an unexpected voyage for both of us. Unless the press gets wind of our relationship, and then all bets are off.

But I fight to win, because Andrew is the most important deal of my life.

Oh Buoy is a boss-employee, friends to lovers, MM romance filled with tropical locations, spicy banter and swoony moments.

emissaryThe line between angel and demon is razor thin. No one knows this better than Kai.

As an Emissary of death, darkness follows Kai like a shadow, leaving him touch-starved and lonely. Tormented by the error in judgment that killed his only love, he accepts an assignment to redeem himself: hunting down the demons destroying the mortal realm. But fate takes a turn, and Kai finds himself drawn to one of his targets instead.

Demonic martial arts expert Byron Black has struggled to survive his entire life. He has fought for every breath he’s taken and each bite he’s eaten, yet in the instant when his demise finally seems inevitable, death incarnate steps forward and spares him. Kai is as beautiful as he is terrifying, and although Byron suspects the angel’s interest in him is more than it appears, he can’t stay away.

Together, the pair search for answers regarding who wants Byron dead—and why—but uncovering the truth might destroy them both in the process. Can Kai defeat his inner demons to save the one that has crawled into his bed?

Set in the Star-Crossed Celestials universe, Emissary is a standalone novel featuring an array of creepy crypts and crematoriums, train-top sword fighting, an excessive number of buckles and buttons, and (of course) a Happily Ever After. It can be read as a prequel or companion story to the Star-Crossed Celestials Duet.

calamityI hate his pretty lips. I hate how good they taste.

Theo

He’s the most infuriating, immature frat brat I’ve ever had the misfortune of coming across. Again.

He’s also the guy I dumped in high-school when I realized I was straight after all. And he just so happens to be the intern at his dad’s company; the very same one I work for.

A terrible misunderstanding puts Justin Lewis into my care. I’m supposed to teach him how his father’s business works. But he’s determined to do it the hard way.

Four years ago, after breaking his heart, I experienced what Justin’s hatred could do. He ruined the final weeks of high-school for me. He scared me into skipping my prom night.

No more.

I’m not that frightened kid anymore. I’ve come far without anyone’s help and I’m not letting one begrudging ex ruin all that I’ve achieved.

If only he wasn’t so irresistible when he pouted.

If only I could stop leaning in to catch his scent.

If only I wasn’t about to make the same mistake all over again.

Justin

It was supposed to be simple; do the internship, make Dad happy, and go away to lick my wounds. I’m sick of the way I live, but a terrible breakup from four years ago still haunts me.

Until I start my internship and discover there’s Theo Wright in my office. Or am I in his office? Depends on who you ask.
The guy hates me and I know why. But I hate him just as much. He wrecked me for good when he turned suddenly straight after one encounter and I never trusted another guy since.

If I’m going to earn my ticket out, I need to do this boring internship. And Theo just so happens to be the only thing to help me pass the time. Annoying him is my new, favorite hobby.

Until I take it a step too far.

And he blushes like a maiden.

And my heart nearly explodes.

Maybe there’s more to him than I let myself believe. The way he looks at me while we work is almost enough to give me a glimmer of hope. If I was foolish enough, I might try something that could burn down in flames again.

Oh, who am I kidding? I’ve always been foolish enough.

The Office Nemesis Calamity is the seventh novel in the Frat Brats of Santa Barbara series, but it can be read on its own. Expect hundreds of pages of grumpy-versus-grumpy banter, through-the-roof steam, two sworn enemies giving each other a second chance, and a sweet farewell to the Highgate Academy.

The problem with pop stars is…we have a short shelf life.

Since I started in the business a decade ago—as a dewy-eyed pre-teen—a clock has been ticking over my head, counting down the minutes until I faded into obscurity. I thought getting the guidance of Raymond Montaine, hit-maker extraordinaire, would catapult my career into the stratosphere. Instead, he scammed me out of money before moving on to his next target.

I want payback for all he cost me, and there’s only one person who can help. The only other artist I know who hates Mitchell as much as I do.

Mathis Reisner.

Sexy as sin, and a brilliant composer, Mathis could be so much more than he believes himself capable of. While my first goal is ruining Raymond, getting Mathis in front of the audience he deserves is quickly gaining ground.

Mathis

The problem with pop stars is… we’re disposable.

I burned bright for a year before the industry threw me out like old trash. Now, I’m a washed-up, former star who can only get work playing piano at a San Francisco tourist trap. I’m scraping to get by, and have Raymond Montaine to blame. He burned all my bridges before casting me aside.

When Iggy finds me at Melody’s Piano Bar and asks for help exposing Raymond for what he is, I tell him where to stuff it. It doesn’t take long before I reconsider.

Why not? I have nothing else to lose.

Smart, funny, and adorable to boot, Iggy fits into my life in ways I never dreamed. With him by my side, we’re heading to the Bremen Town Music Festival to expose Raymond to the world. I can’t help but hope that along the way Iggy realizes we can make our own beautiful music together.

Wanting him.

And if I can’t focus on the job, how can I keep Aidan safe when our enemies are closing in?

heistHeist rule number two? Never fall for a lone wolf.

A blast from Tuck’s circus past draws Tuck and the charming lone-wolf hacker, Leo, into a dizzying web of passion, secrets, and betrayal.

When the circus comes calling, Tuck is helpless to the lure, and this time, his old troupe’s in trouble. Their attempt to leave Reynauld Industries ended with a hit on them, courtesy of the deadly mercenary group, the Stockyard. Tuck can’t sit idly by, and as the resident stealth operator for the Outlaws, he’s in a unique position to help.

Leo’s a lone wolf hacker, and no amount of his best friend’s pleading, Tuck’s flirty smiles, or interesting jobs will sway him into working with the Outlaws. At least, until they land this one. After growing up in the hellish Stockyard, he’s wanted to take them down for years, and this is the Holy Grail of opportunities. Only problem? The Outlaws can never know about his history with them.

When Leo and Tuck start working together, a chemistry emerges that neither of them can deny. Leo’s mantra of “one and done” falters the moment Tuck shows him a care and steadfastness he’s never experienced before, and the more time they spend with each other, the more he doesn’t want to give up the first man he’s started to fall for. However, if the Outlaws discover his past or the Stockyard finds him first, Leo will end up one of the bloated corpses they’ve left lining the Chicago River.

Always have an exit strategy. That’s how I’ve lived my life for ten years, and so far things are going just fine. I know better than to get into a situation without knowing exactly when and how to get out. I don’t do commitments; not jobs, not social plans, and most definitely not relationships. I learned the hard way how bad the alternative can be.

Jackson

I’ve spent the last five years running from loneliness, and I’ve done a damn fine job. Now I’m ready to put down roots and make a home, somewhere other than Hollywood. I think I’ve found the right place, and I thought I found the right person. But I’m not sure I’m ready to burn all my bridges behind me, and I’m afraid that might be the only way I can prove how important he is to me.

From The Ground Up is a steamy M/M romance featuring hurt/comfort and sexual awakening themes. You’ll also find an A-list movie star, a sweet contractor, beautiful homes, loveable family, and of course a happy ending. Book One of the Hot Dam Homes series.

uneggsaltedRunning into your mate is one thing. Running into your chipmunk mate and watching them thrown into their first shift unexpectedly is quite another.

Alpha Dragon shifter Kirin never wanted a mate. He sees firsthand what the loss of a mate could do to a man each time he looks into his father’s eyes. No, the single life is exactly what he needs, and the odds are in his favor. Not a single dragon in his flight presented himself as his fated when Kirin shifted for the first time on his twenty-fifth birthday. He is in the clear…that is until he decides to represent his company at the upcoming trade show and everything changes in a flash…or is it a shift?

Omega Chipmunk shifter Aldo didn’t mind being latent. In fact, he kind of liked it. Being latent means he doesn’t need to take his father’s place as king of the chipmunks. What a pretentious title that is for a pack alpha, not that anyone asked Aldo’s opinion. Instead he gets to run his furniture store and be left out of politics completely. He loves it. That is, until he goes to the country’s largest furniture trade show and shifts for the first time—in public—after bumps into his true mate.

Aldo’s life turns upside down in an instant and, if it wasn’t for the smexy dragon who instantly went into protective mode, it could’ve been much worse. But, now what? He has a mate, his chipmunk is wanting to run around free —not once caring about human ways —and he’s expected to take his place as prince of his kingdom.

His UnEGGsalted Omega is a sweet with knotty heat MM Mpreg dragon shifter romance featuring an alpha who thought he was running away from finding a mate, an omega shifter who isn’t as latent as he thought, ridiculous politics neither want a part of, a hoard more valuable than gold, true love, fated mates, an unexpected clutch, a happily ever after, and an adorable baby.

wallsDylan
“Quirky.” Ugh, I hate that word. The PC term these days is ‘neuro-divergent’, but I prefer to be called autistic. It’s often a huge advantage to have a brain that works differently, but I sometimes wish it was easier to connect with other people. The things that make me different can make people want to keep their distance, and for a long time I’ve built walls around myself so no one wants to even try breaking through. Helping the sexy ER doctor renovate his house, I discover someone who wants to get closer instead of running away. I think Reed likes me because I’m a little different, not in spite of it. But the gorgeous doctor has a lot of baggage, and I worry that if he sees the parts of me I work so hard to keep under control, he’s going to turn tail and run.

Reed
I’ve overcome a lot to get to where I am as a doctor, including parents who loved their bigoted, homophobic church more than their child and an opioid addiction following years of self-loathing. I love my team in the ER, but in my personal life I prefer to fly solo. I’m comfortable behind the carefully built walls that no one, not even my best friend, gets through.
The old fixer-upper in a great neighborhood was supposed to be a side project, but I discovered pretty quickly that home renovations are not as easy as they look on TV. But when one of the sexiest men I’ve ever seen, who happens to be a contractor, shows up in my ER, he feels like the solution to all my problems. What I never expected was that while he was re-building my house, Dylan Campbell would be the first person who makes me want to take my walls down.

When The Walls Come Down is a steamy hurt/comfort MM Romance. It features an autistic home renovation expert, and a doctor scarred by a traumatic childhood. Two people who’ve always been outsiders figuring out how to let each other in.

The one Jamie has seen in his dreams for the past five years. Jamie doesn’t know much about the enigmatic man from his visions, but he doesn’t need to. He knows enough. He knows they belong together.

Lucien Volaire has been losing his mind for almost half a century, the monster within him steadily taking greater control over his thoughts and actions. He’s destroyed everything he’s touched, including the people he’s cared for. The one thing that could stop his final descent into madness? A mate. So when Luc meets a young man in the desert, one who smells like heaven and doesn’t run in fear, Luc knows he’s met his last chance at redemption.

But the more Lucien is enchanted by Jamie, the more reluctant he is to taint him with his own vampire curse. Can Lucien find a balance between love and obsession? Or will those that want Luc out of their territory step in before he has a chance?

Lucien is a heated, fated-mates MM paranormal romance with an HEA and no cliffhanger. It contains a morally grey, obsessive vampire with anger management issues and the bright, playful human who might just match him in possessive romantic tendencies. It also contains steamy scenes between two men, and the moderate violence (and mentions of blood) that one might expect from a vampire romance. This book can be read as a standalone, but the series is best enjoyed in order (it is especially recommended to read book one first).

starA M/M holiday romance novella about finding your way home.

Rhett Carpenter’s early fame ended with a crash. Sixteen years later, he’s working steadily: writing, producing, narrating, even acting. He’s made a decent life for himself. The trouble is, he never wanted a life that was only for himself, and he’s not sure he wants this one anymore.

Gabriel Aguilar didn’t know who Rhett was when they met on the train, but it didn’t take long to find out. They noticed each other around the neighborhood, as well as on the Metro. Months later, when Gabriel’s apartment burned down, Rhett offered the vacant studio behind his house.

They weren’t close, but they were friends. So when Rhett needed someone to reach out, Gabriel did. And before long, they were much more than friends.

jingleThe last thing an omega reindeer shifter wants to do is piss off his alpha flight instructor on the first day of school.

Alpha Jingle is the instructor at a magical version of a top gun flight school in the North Pole for reindeer shifters who can fly. His students are the best and brightest and all want jobs pulling one of dozens of the Santa Collective’s sleighs on Christmas Eve.

December, who prefers to be called Ember, is an omega with a keen mind for math and a talent for flight. But he’s one of the youngest students ever and is nervous and klutzy. His own youthful enthusiasm could be his undoing.

Jingle wants to see the young omega flourish, but Ember has a way of getting under his skin and irritating him, and he is not sure why.

Soon the two realize there is something happening between them that is more than teacher/student. Perhaps a bit of Arctic mysticism. Perhaps a little Christmas magic. Annoyance turns to attraction.

In this sweet, fairytale-esque Christmas novel, love finds its way toward two souls who need each other more than they realize, and soon even the coldest of northern winter nights melt under the twin heartbeats of fated mates.

MM, mpreg, flying reindeer shifters, Christmas romance, opposites attract, teacher/student, steamy heat, silly Christmas sweaters at the North Pole, a collective of real Santas, Christmas Eve magic, HEA.

mistlefoeThe only thing worse than Mingo not living out his Christmas rom-com fantasy is having his sworn enemy be the one to make all his holiday dreams come true.

I’d rather roast my chestnuts over an open fire than spend a single second around Marley. So when that grinch shows up at my apartment to hang out with my friends over Christmas break, I’m ready to deck his halls, if you know what I mean.

After he starts an argument with me, I take advantage of the mistletoe hanging above us to end it with an impulsive kiss to shut him up, once and for all. But I make one crucial miscalculation: Marley kisses to win, and I refuse to lose.

Now, I want to jingle his bells and make it a white Christmas. It must be a holiday miracle that I went from hating a guy to wishing he’d plow me like the snowy roads.

Can we call a truce long enough to make it a not-so-silent night?

Friend or Mistlefoe is a standalone novel in the Sunnyside universe. This comedic enemies to lovers gay romance is full of holiday cheer and naughty Christmas banter. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and no angst stories that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll enjoy this festive HEA without cliffhangers.

liesFinding ‘the one’ was the easy bit. The love story is how you keep it all together. This is not a romance. This is what happens when life goes on, when people grow and fall out of sync. Not out of love; some people are just meant to be. Thomas at least hopes that is the case, even though he sometimes feels like he’s clinging to his marriage by a brittle thread. Frank clutches to the scraps that are left, knowing he’s the root cause of Thomas’ grey hairs, their kids being hormonal monsters and his own sanity being questionable at the best of times. Gabriel needs to stop worrying and take control of his life, but with young kids and a body that refuses to do what it’s supposed to do—to sustain and nourish and build muscle to keep bones in place—his feels like a traitor, laughing in his face when he struggles to keep it together. He knows he is loved. His kids are everything. But his marriage feels like a distant memory, and he’s tumbling from one disaster into another. It’s just…life. Bruno thought this holiday would bring them closer together as a family. Isn’t that what a trip abroad is supposed to do? Four weeks in the Swedish mosquito-infested countryside, sharing a farm with strangers. He should have known better. Life is good. But the rest? Lies. All lies. Life is Good and Other Lies is the story of one messy holiday, two crumbling marriages, five bored kids and a farm full of secrets. This is not a romance, instead this is a tale of those happily ever afters. The ups and downs, the good and the downright ugly. The pitfalls of parenting, the laughter and tears, and the joy of simply fighting for the people you love. It’s also an ode to friendships, because sometimes the family you chose, is the one who will have your back when it truly matters.

Having feelings for a guy is new, and I’m in way over my head. My future’s been decided since I was in diapers, and falling for a boy in college wasn’t in my family’s master plan. But from our first curious kiss, everything about Leo feels right. Before I know it, I’m dying for our friendship to become something more before the semester ends. Screw the plan. I’m not going the rest of my life without him. Leo So much for not crushing on a straight boy. Only Clark’s not so straight, and it’s way more than a crush. It’s easy to lose myself in his kiss and hard to forget the way he makes me feel. To the rest of Honeywood, Clark is the untouchable campus king of Royal U. To me, he’s the boy who comes apart when we touch, the boy who wants me to put him back together, and the boy who stole my heart when I wasn’t looking. Clark is the muse who pulls poetry out of me. Can he also be the boy who teaches me what it’s like to fall in love? Heartthrob is a new adult low angst gay romance. Visit Royal U and the small town of Honeywood for a dreamy, steamy slice of life MM romance featuring explosive first times, fierce friendships, and curious college boys thinking with their bodies.
