Mason

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.

New release!

Does the baddest boy in school need a tutor… or a Daddy?

I’ve spent my whole life needing absolutely nothing and getting exactly that. Love? No. Security? Yeah, right. Parental supervision? As if. I take care of myself. After graduation, my football scholarship and I are out of here and we’re never looking back.

Unless I screw it up.

Trying to study when I’m cold and hungry, that I’m used to. But throw in my mom’s sketchy new boyfriend and his shady side hustle, and my home life’s suddenly way more than just unbearable. Studying’s barely on my radar and I’m in danger of losing my future before it starts.

My one shot at turning things around is The Beast.

Caleb Heath is the smartest guy in school. And the biggest. A giant, quiet bookworm with no friends, and okay, maybe that’s partly my fault, but whatever. I hate him and he hates me, so why would he even offer to be my tutor?

Turns out there’s a reason. He doesn’t just want to save my grades. He doesn’t just want to save my season. He wants to save me.

Wants to wrap me up in his giant arms and rescue me. He wants to spoil me. Punish me. Take care of me. He wants me to call him Daddy.

Sure it’s hot. Sure it’s tempting to think anyone could ever really want me. But I’m way too old to believe in fairy tales.

Aren’t I?

Hurt Me, Daddy is book one in The Brat & The Beast duet, an angsty, kinky, grumpy epic MM romance about an angry, stubborn, bratty jock who won’t give an inch and a slightly stalky gentle giant with infinite patience. Get ready for steamy study sessions, unexpected attraction, hurt/comfort, daddy kink, spanking, fun sized candy bars, ugly gray sweaters, and all the feels.

This book ends on a satisfying but exciting cliffhanger. The second and final installment, Comfort Me, Daddy, contains a happily ever after for Logan and Caleb. It is available for preorder now.

**​Content Advisory for toxic/abusive/neglectful home life, drug and alcohol abuse/addiction (parental), additional mentions of both in the past, frank portrayal of poverty, and food insecurity.

Have You Been Chosen?

For the first time, Macy Blake’s two bestselling paranormal fantasy series are being published in a three-volume mega-verse box set!

Each volume will feature three full-length MM novels with dragons, hellhounds, vampires and more, with never before published bonus material. All in reader-requested chronological order.

Volume One:
Sweet Nothings: The Chosen One Prequel

Middle school teacher Sam Baker’s life is turned upside down when he learns Vaughn, his former high school crush, is actually an alpha werewolf. When they rescue six orphaned shifter children, Sam joins forces with Vaughn to protect the children placed in their care. The future they dreamed of is now within reach, but only if they survive the sinister force out to destroy everything they hold dear.

All or Nothing: The Chosen One Book One

Sawyer Smith is completing his master’s degree and preparing to take on the world, and he’s hoping to take his best friend Draco along for the ride. There’s only one problem: Draco has a big, scaly secret, and it’s about to change Sawyer’s life forever. Sawyer is plunged into a fantastical world he never knew existed, filled with creatures of legend who are destined to be guardians of The Chosen One. When he finds himself attracted to all the guardians, Sawyer wonders if he should really be guarding his heart from the men he’s growing closer to by the day, or if he should give in and risk losing it all.

Nothing Ventured: The Chosen One Book Two

As a magical null, Sawyer Smith is woefully unprepared for the dangers that come with being part of the supernatural world. He’s human and vulnerable, even with the powerful, sexy guardians who have claimed him as their own. When a simple visit turns deadly, Sawyer’s mates whisk him away to the clan of the rich and powerful griffins. Danger lurks in close quarters and a new guardian is revealed. If Sawyer hopes to discover the ancient enemy hunting The Chosen One, he must survive the newest tests facing him and the magical creatures he’s grown to love.

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.

New release!

Mason gives people too many chances, Hunter gives too few, but are they willing to take a chance on each other?

Mason’s always tried to believe the best in people, and for the most part, their sunshine attitude pays off. They love their friends, their family, and they’re determined to win over their broody, gorgeous coworker Hunter—especially when their car in the shop turns into carpooling to work together.

Hunter’s only seen the worst in people, and he doesn’t trust easily—not after growing up with a mom who ditched and an addict dad. However, perky, sweet, hot-as-hell Mason seems to win him over with every goofy comment or adorable smile, and before he can stop himself, he’s falling hard.

The more time Mase and Hunter spend together, the more their attraction flares until they’re both holding the hope for something real. However, when Hunter’s past collides with his present, the secret he’s been keeping threatens to destroy everything—the home he established, the friends who’ve become his new family, and any chance of a future with Mason.

Steal!

This season, I’ve got a lot to prove…

Terry King may have been born into kitesurfing royalty, but he’s been overlooked and overshadowed his entire life. Unlike his fame-starved father, Trenton ‘King of the Air’ King, or his two attention-grabbing older brothers, Terry doesn’t compete for fame, money, or power. He’s got much more ambitious goals than that.

Terry has his sights set on reuniting his dysfunctional family and finally landing his forever crush: Richie Brown. A six-foot-four, anxiety-riddled, ginger teddy bear who writes heart-melting poetry. Also, the one and only person who’s ever truly seen Terry.

Richie grew up next door to the King brothers in the sleepy coastal town of Airlie Beach, Australia. His childhood was marred by a tragedy that continues to invade every corner of his life twenty years later. Richie gave up on love a long time ago…until something unexpected happened the night of Terry’s victory last season.

Richie knows better than anyone why Terry King is strictly off-limits. They grew up together. They’re practically family. Richie’s seven years older. Terry is his best mate’s younger brother… But then there’s the biggest reason of all. A closely guarded secret Richie’s never revealed to a single soul.

Terry is determined to defend his world title and turn his dreams into reality. But when life throws a spanner into his season, and with the King family remaining as stubbornly dysfunctional as ever––will Terry be able to get Richie to see him as more than just the kid he grew up with?

Kings of Airlie is an exhilarating, action-packed MM sports romance trilogy about love, brotherhood, and resilience––with a powerful message that dreams don’t die, they just sometimes change.

Each book in the series features a new couple and a happily ever after. With continuing family and competition plots, the books do need to be read in order.

Grant didn’t know an omega could become Beta of his Bear Den, but that’s exactly what just happened.

Omega bear shifter Grant loves all of the positive changes that his den has seen since their new Alpha arrived. Now that he has food in his belly, a comfortable place to live, and a taste of the human world, he yearns to take another step and do what no one from his den has attempted—get a college education. If only he was brave enough to ask.

Alpha mountain lion shifter Kit enjoys his life in the city. Great food, fun nightlife, and best of all… no pack politics. That’s until his pack’s Alpha sends word he’s needed at home. Kit has no choice but to agree and decides to take a detour to the Bruin Ridge shifters to visit his old roommate, their new Alpha. Anything to delay the inevitable.

Kit’s short trip is complicated when he scents his true mate and doubly complicated when Grant, his fated, is named den Beta.

An Omega Bear for Kit is the second book in the Bruin Ridge Bear-ginning series, a sweet with knotty heat M/M Mpreg Shifter Romance by the popular writing team of Colbie Dunbar and Lorelei M. Hart.

I avoid him.

Every time Kepler Quinn steps into a room, I get the hell out.

He does . . . something to me. When those discerning gray eyes flick towards me, his brow rising in a silent greeting, there’s a tightening of my abs. A zapping hum quivering low along my spine.

There are about a million reasons it shouldn’t be what the little voice in the back of my head insists . . . a crush.

Because Kepler isn’t just some random guy. He’s my brother’s best friend. He’s also my TA for physics this semester. And also . . . a guy. I’ve never held strongly onto being straight, but I’ve also never had this sun-scorching need for another guy before.

But I can’t avoid him when we’re suddenly in the back stacks of the library—alone—nothing but the smell of old books and softly falling dust around us. And instead of walking away from him, I let out the two words that burn in my throat:

“Kiss me.”

My crown never weighed as heavy as when I had to leave the guy I love.

Mateo

My life is nothing like a fairytale. Weighed down by duty and constantly watched, I hope to find a little freedom at Highgate.

Nobody knows who I really am; the Andalonian Heir Apparent. Not even the embarrassingly handsome Joshua Sterling.
He makes living seem easy. He makes falling in love effortless. He makes me believe in fairytales.

But the price of falling in love with an American boy is steep. The duty I’ve carried my entire life — the duty that had kept me away from taking a risk and living my best — reminds me that we’re nothing but a passing fancy.

With every lie I speak, I bury myself deeper. Whenever I miss a chance to tell him who I am, I lose him a little more. And when I love him the most, a disaster strikes. My lies catch up with me and I risk losing more than just my crown. I risk losing the best guy I’ve ever met.

A prince should not need a knight in shining armor. But this prince wants nothing else.

Joshua

Trailed by his bodyguards and deliciously strange, Mateo Garcia is like nobody I’ve ever crossed paths with. My reputation isn’t exaggerated. I’ve crossed paths with plenty of hot guys. Not a single one of them looked past what I was ready to show. Not like Mateo.

His enigmatic presence tempts me to share my deepest fears and sweetest secrets. His innocence makes me want to be more than just a one-time fling.

Here’s a guy who could love me, I think. Here’s a guy I could love back just the same.

But when he touches my wildest desires and when the promise of a little happiness is too sweet to resist, I discover that he’s nothing like what he said. He is a prince suffocated by tradition and expectations. And what does that make me? A rebellious experiment and a college flame.

Mateo taught me how to fall in love. Then, he taught me how badly a heartbreak hurts.

Maybe I’m better off living the way I used to. Maybe a pretty face and a hot body is all I’m worth. But his departure rips a hole in my chest that no amount of hookups could fill.

The Royal Roommate Disaster is the second book in Frat Brats of Santa Barbara series. It features one bad-boy-turned-nice, one sweet, secret prince who wants to break free, all the steam you can handle, heart-melting sweetness, and a guaranteed happily ever after. It can be read on its own, but it’s just more fun to read it after The Fake Boyfriends Debacle.

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.

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.

Love, loyalty, and betrayal….

In the second installment of the hugely popular Ancient Blood series we have dueling stories.

On the one hand is Adam, struggling with his new life as a vampire but so much more. Adam is trying to take care of the nest left to him once Neku was turned to stone. They all felt their ancient maker’s absence, but for Adam, it was much deeper. They’d begun their love affair only a short time before Neku was taken from him, so he missed the life they’d been promised.

Jay asks for their help in finding a serial killer, and the nest jumps at the chance to take their minds from Neku’s absence, the possibility of Neku’s maker finding them, and more. Will hunting human killers be enough to keep their sorrow at bay?

In the other half of the story, Anna is finally in college, living her dream, but her new powers and responsibilities get in the way. She is looking for a lost girl, and fears a vampire has taken her life. Can the new witches she meets help her find the girl and discover her true power?

A sizzling M/M story about vampires; throw a coven of Medusa witches into the mix, and things may never be the same.

I’ve never let anyone see my true desires, but Shane makes me want to let go and finally let someone in. To let him take care of me the way I’ve always craved.

As much as I want to fight it, I can’t say no when he shows me who’s boss.

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.

Sebastian Howard is the best damn cornerback in the NFL.

Or at least he was.

Age and injuries have taken a toll, and while most people have written him off, Sebastian isn’t ready to acknowledge that at only thirty-two, he’s already in the twilight of his career.

He signs with the Miami Piranhas intending to prove everyone wrong.

Only to realize that the head coach’s son, out-and-proud Beau Dawson, doesn’t believe he can.

Beau is infuriating but brilliant, and when he offers to help him on the field, Sebastian wants to say yes, but there’s one thing stopping him: the unexpected, inconvenient, and all-consuming crush he doesn’t want to have on Beau.

But Beau isn’t interested in playing it safe, with football or with anything else, and soon they’re embroiled in a hot—and secret—affair that would finish Sebastian’s career if Coach Dawson found out.

As Sebastian falls harder for Beau, he begins to realize that actually the worst thing in the world isn’t getting benched, but losing the man he loves.

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.

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.

Book 1 of 5 | Romantic Suspense | Hurt/Comfort | Trauma | Age Difference
The Auctioned Series is a journey packed with action, nail-biting suspense, family, and love. In Gray and Darius’s fight for freedom and a future where they aren’t haunted by the ghosts of their pasts, they’ll make you laugh, cry, swoon just a little bit, and probably yell at your e-reader.

Gray Nolan was just another happy-go-lucky college dude when his ordinary existence got interrupted, and he became a human trafficking statistic. He didn’t know where in the US they kept him, or if he was even still there. Or if it mattered… He just wanted to die.

After several weeks of abuse, he and seven other young men were taken aboard a luxurious yacht where they were to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Beaten, shattered, and all but defeated, Gray watched his buyer step out of the shadows in a swirl of his own cigarette smoke.

Darius Quinn had vowed never again to find himself in a situation like this. His days as a private military contractor were over. No more missions, no more risks, no more personal attachments. Yet, here he was, after weeks of searching, face-to-face with his broken prize.

It was time to get the knucklehead back to his family. 

Quick and easy was Darius’s plan. Then everything went sideways.

This story takes place in Cara Dee’s Camassia Cove Universe, a fictional town where all books/series’ stand on their own, unless otherwise stated. The Auctioned Series should be read in the following order: Auctioned, Stranded, Deserted, Played, and Finished.
