Michele Notaro Ebook.jpgI can’t really complain about my life; I have a job I love and a best friend that fills the void of my nonexistent family, but sometimes I’m lonelier than I like to admit. Especially with the holiday season approaching, I can’t help but wish I had someone special to share it with.

My friend gives me a snow globe with a man and a snowy owl inside, and for some bizarre reason, this man starts showing up every night when I close my eyes. It’s… not real, but I can’t seem to get the guy out of my head. It probably shouldn’t surprise me that my brain conjures up the perfect man in my dreams… well, almost perfect if he’d stop claiming to be a warlock. But the crazy thing is that all of it—that he—feels so real.

When I start falling for the man, the warlock, I can’t help but wish that what we have in my dreams could be a reality. I know it can’t, but at least when I’m asleep, I can be with him—with Alaric.

hensley manorCole hates Christmas. He finds it all ridiculous; the decorations, music, and the obsession with spending a fortune just to show people you care about them. He used to love the holiday season. But that was before his world came crashing down around him.

Now, the happy families and Christmas cheer only remind him of things he’d rather forget.
Everything changes when he visits Treasures of Old Antiques. The snow globe on the dusty shelf was just a silly trinket. So why did Cole feel an overwhelming sense of peace when he picked it up?

When he wakes up the next morning in a strange manor with no recollection of how he got there, he thinks he’s officially lost his mind. And then he meets Ian Hensley, the sexy Bed & Breakfast owner. There’s an instant connection between the two men; powerful and almost…magical. Though it’s snowing outside, Cole and Ian stay warm and cozy between the sheets.
But what happens when Cole’s stay comes to an end? He can’t stay in the snowy, charming town of Evergreen Valley forever.

Welcome to Hensley Manor.
Breakfast is at 7:30 and lunch is at noon. Warm yourself by the fire and enjoy your stay. And be careful, you might just find what you’re looking for this Christmas.

villainDespite growing up in a family of villains, I’d rather curl up and read than commit crimes. When I get coerced by my brother into helping him rob a bank, I run into August, my childhood crush—also known as Chrono, the city’s greatest superhero. He’s sexy, sweet, and suddenly he’s asking me to Thanksgiving with his parents. It’s probably because he doesn’t realize that I’m Leviathan, a villain with the power of telekinesis. And I can’t tell him because he’d never forgive me and would stop doing things like cooking for me—wait, maybe that would be a good thing, since he’s a terrible cook. It doesn’t help that my parents think they’re the ultimate villains and won’t stop getting in my way, although they can’t even steal toilet paper without getting caught.

But when real supervillains (not the wannabe kind that I grew up with) start targeting August, I might be forced to show everyone who I truly am: a slightly warped and snarky man who’d really rather read a book than save anything… besides August. I’ll tear this world apart just to get another glimpse of him in those glasses and spandex suit. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him safe, even though it means exposing my true identity. Luckily, August still cares about me, proving that even a villain and a hero can fall in love. Hopefully, we’ll be able to save the world in time for Christmas.

This ridiculous and snarky holiday novel is 92,000 words and contains a villain turned unlikely hero (even if he’s a manager’s worst nightmare), a superhero with a fondness for suckers who absolutely does NOT use his powers to cheat on board games, a hairless cat with an unfortunate name, bumbling family members that try to be evil but are mostly just embarrassing, a snow globe with mysterious powers, betrayal, true love, a risqué Santa suit, and the saltiest chicken ever.

Wendy Rathbone Ebook.jpgA blizzard. A Christmas rescue. A man with the heart of an angel.

Hayden

Hayden knows it was stupid to think he could walk home from the office and beat the blizzard. So what if he worked out all the time until he was big and strong. So what if he hated to ever ask for help. Loners who think they can do everything themselves are just as vulnerable as anyone. His only consolation is if he dies there will be very few people who will miss him.

Matthew

The half-frozen man falling through the door to Matthew’s coffee shop is more than alarming, but it’s a good thing he’d forgotten to lock that front entrance or the beautiful guy covered in snow might have died in the cold.

The man is gorgeous, soft-spoken, helpful, maybe even a bit old-fashioned in his manners. Just the type Matthew always wished for but never met. Sharing a fire and a snowed-in night with him will be no hardship.

When the storm lasts more than a day, attraction blooms. But when it is over, will Hayden and Matthew’s feelings fade? Or will holiday charm and a heart-warming miracle draw them together again?

Rescue, forced proximity, overwhelming attraction, blizzards, and a heart-warming Christmas miracle.

image0.jpegThe most wonderful time of year?

Maybe for others—but definitely not for me. Peppermint is disgusting, and don’t even get me started on how creepy I think nutcrackers are.

While others have visions of sugar plums doing some weird dancing in their heads, Christmas only pulls up memories I’d rather soon forget. But how can I do that when Christmas is being thrown at me from every direction? Especially now that I’m giving my Christmas loving co-worker Troy rides to and from work when he has car trouble.

When the gifts start to appear on my desk, the tiny burdens make it hard to forget about the date that is rapidly approaching on the calendar. And the more time I spend with Troy, the more I begin to realize that despite the bad memories, Christmas isn’t really so terrible, especially when it’s spent with someone I can’t seem to walk away from.

Will I finally be saying ho ho ho instead of telling Santa to bite me? Or will I forever remain the man who hates Christmas?

lights camera christmas.jpegWhat happens in those Christmas movies doesn’t happen in real life… right?

When Blake Sunday, an actor well known for his super fluffy roles in made-for-television movies, comes to the small but bustling town of Hidden Springs, Missouri to film a Christmas movie, he knows immediately that it’s where he wants to put down roots. His restless, energetic nature gets him sent on a coffee run where he steps inside Knick-Knack Patty-Cakes and meets its adorable owner.

Declan Alexander is chubby, clumsy, has wild curly blonde hair that can only be tamed with a stocking cap and has an unnatural obsession with made-for-TV Christmas movies.… And Blake Sunday. So, when the gorgeous actor comes waltzing into his bakery, naturally Declan becomes a force of destruction on feet.

Blake is completely smitten by the shy man, and does everything he can to get the guy’s attention, but Declan continues to treat his flirting like a joke, and he starts to think it might be Declan’s way of turning him down nicely.

Declan knows Blake is one of those guys who flirt as naturally as they breathe, but it’s getting harder and harder to laugh off the high heat on when Blake calls him Angel Eyes or brushes his cheek when he reaches out to tug on one of his curls. How could he wish the man would stop and wish he wouldn’t at the same time?

When Blake nearly mows down a little boy carrying a snow globe with two men kissing in the middle of a frozen lake, he notices some striking similarities between him and one of the men, and it doesn’t escape his notice that the other looks a lot like Declan, or that the globe has Knick-Knack Patty-Cakes’ logo on the bottom.

Maybe the gorgeous little baker with the sweet eyes and blush isn’t turning him down. Maybe Blake just needs to figure out how to prove how serious he is about taking him home and never letting him leave.

Brandon's Very Merry cover.jpgWhen Brandon Havili gets recruited by the FBI, he’s immediately assigned to shadow his brother and the psychic Donovan’s anchored to. Brandon doesn’t mind this in the slightest. He loves his brother, Jon seems cool, and it’s a great way to learn how to be an anchor, which is what the FBI wants him for. It’s supposedly three weeks of just following people around and observing.

But there’s a hitch in the plans three days in. Brandon accidentally picks up a hitchhiker of the ghostly variety. Donovan is NOT pleased. Jon is amused no end.

Dealing with the ghost means going back to the place that Brandon accidentally got it from, Eureka Springs, Arkansas. They expect to meet up with an FBI medium, exorcise said ghost, and go home again.

FBI Medium Mackenzie Lafayette is not at all what Brandon expects. And for once, he’s quite happy to ditch the plan. Returning to Nashville could wait. He’s got a sexy medium to figure out first.

Donovan’s not so romantic Christmas, he does not approve, Brandon took over the little snot, I have no idea how that happened, exorcisms, ghosts not being spooky, ghost busting, healthy relationships, Mack figures out how to seduce a Havili very quickly, bisexual character, gay characters, mothers being awesome, is it possible for something to be sappy and horrifying at the same time, because that’s what we’re going for here

mysterySnow & Winter: Book Three

It’s summer in New York City, and antique shop owner Sebastian Snow is taking the next big step in his relationship with NYPD homicide detective, Calvin Winter: they’re moving in together. What should have been a wonderful week of playing house and celebrating Calvin’s birthday comes to an abrupt end when a mysterious package arrives at the Emporium.

Inside is a Thomas Edison Kinetoscope, a movie viewer from the nineteenth century, invented by the grandfather of modern cinema, W. K. L. Dickson. And along with it, footage of a murder that took place over a hundred years ago.

Sebastian resists the urge to start sleuthing, even if the culprit is long dead and there’s no apparent danger. But break-ins at the Emporium, a robbery, and dead bodies aren’t as easy to ignore, and Sebastian soon realizes that the century-old murder will lead him to a modern-day killer.

However, even with Sebastian’s vast knowledge of Victorian America and his unrelenting perseverance in the face of danger, this may be the one mystery he won’t survive.

overwriteWho better to play fake boyfriend than his business partner?

OLIVER
Oliver has carved out a good life for himself with his business partner and best friend from college, Micah. It might not be the life Oliver’s snobby family planned for him, but it’s all his and that’s what matters. Oliver and Micah’s dating assistance app is doing well, primed for expansion. But then the invitation—the summons—to a family event comes and throws Oliver’s carefully cultivated balance into chaos.

One thing is certain: Oliver can’t face his family alone. Not when he’s been feeding his family a story about having a boyfriend to keep them out of his hair. He’s screwed if he doesn’t find a guy to bring with him to the event, risking an opening for his family to pick at after he built up his shield against them.

The one person he trusts to play his pretend boyfriend is the only one that’s off-limits, but Oliver ignores the voice of reason. Oliver needs Micah’s help in order to survive this event.

MICAH
Micah’s been crushing on Oliver since their college days.

It’s never been a big deal. Micah refuses to let his feelings jeopardize anything between them. He hides it well enough from Oliver, especially after they launched their indie startup and Oliver turned into a quieter, more serious version of the guy Micah befriended in college. While Oliver handles the boring parts of their business, Micah spends his days subsisting on far too much coffee, tending to his collection of office plants, and losing himself in lines of code.

But then Oliver proposes something Micah never expected: the chance to play boyfriends for one night. It’s too tempting to resist and Micah is always willing to help Oliver. Can he keep his emotions in check or will their business partnership suffer the strain?

[Love] Overwrite Command is a fast-paced MM friends-to-lovers romance featuring fake dating, pining business partners, an overabundance of plants, interesting flavor combinations, a moat, and a HEA. This 19,000 word standalone novella contains explicit sex and strong language intended for 18+ readers.

thiefQuinn Waverly is desperate to find his missing twin brother, Jayce. He’s so desperate that he’s willing to risk his reputation – and everything else – to extract information from the one source who might be able to help: a mysterious figure in London’s elite party scene, Roman Carlisle.

For a straight-laced nanny and caretaker like Quinn, nothing could be more unsettling than the raw, animal magnetism that Roman uses to ensnare countless men. Roman agrees to help, but Quinn soon discovers that “helping” means letting Roman into every aspect of his life. The charismatic socialite is only too happy play fixer, as long as he pulls all the strings.

As the trail turns darker and more dangerous, Quinn has little choice but to trust Roman. Hopefully, when it’s over, he’ll have control over his emotions again and won’t be completely under Roman’s spell…

Roman Carlisle is a ruthless master thief with a scandalous and notorious reputation, so it’s not often he finds himself keeping company with a gorgeous man who isn’t willing to fall into his bed. Quinn is a delightfully fresh character in Roman’s world and a welcome distraction from the groupies who worship at his feet. Intrigued, Roman agrees to hunt for Jayce in order to pursue Quinn.

But the path to finding Jayce leads further and further into the seedy underbelly of the city, implicating those who work outside the bounds of the law entirely. Roman will have to use all of his skills to exact justice for Quinn if he wants to achieve his true objective: to steal Quinn’s heart.

The omega, Nate, is an artist but subsidizes his work by swindling squires – though his evenings involve darker pursuits.

From their first meeting, the alpha and omega’s lives are upended by lust, grief, dread and euphoria that hover and swirl around them.

northlandThe North Novels, #2.

Two years ago, Logan Ward got the surprise of his life when he discovered he was the father of a two-year-old little boy. Professionally and romantically adrift, he devoted all his time and energy to caring for his son. But now he’s searching for more, and accepting a job in Alaska will give him a fresh start. Along the way, he can only hope work out the rest. Minor things, really. Like how to create a home for him and his boy, figuring out whether or not he’s into men, and how to find his place in a new culture where a young girl is better with a rifle than he is.

Kyle Shaw has been living off the land his whole life, very comfortable with nature and the challenges of surviving in the Alaskan wilderness. He particularly enjoys his seasonal work at the O’Connor Adventure Retreat, and for this year’s stint, he’s bringing his niece. He’s not in the market for anything other than hard work, good friends, and—fingers crossed—reasonably priced milk. Then some guy from the South puts his foot in his mouth, and Kyle steps up to teach Logan a lesson.

Stray cover amazonTrae is openly laughing now, and it lights up his face like magic. He’s laughing at me.

“You don’t have to prove anything to me, Aryn,” he says softly. “I’m not one of your alpha cronies you have to outshine. Or an actual mate you’d need to convince he made the right choice. Am I?”

Aryn Greyson needs a fake mate, and fast. The alpha college sophomore has told his pack leader he found his omega, and now Braedan wants to welcome the new Greyson into the family.

Trae “Stray” Vagorien, omega fourth-year student, has no pack, no money, and supposedly no morals. He’s definitely got no need for a stupid, arrogant alpha in his life. When college heartthrob Aryn Greyson offers him a thousand dollars for posing as his mate for a night, including family dinner and sharing a double room in a five-star hotel, Trae finds his views on alphaholes confirmed—and accepts. Nothing is going to happen in that king-size bed. That’s the deal. Aryn is determined to behave honorably and stand by his promise, and Trae has enough pride and attitude to make sure that he will.

But what if their hormones and hearts have other ideas?

Can a relationship that started with an insult and a lie ever turn into something real?

STRAY is a non-shifter omegaverse gay romance and the first installment of the FENNYS DEN COLLEGE SERIES. It contains a sweet alpha who needs to grow up, a snarky omega with a fear of thunderstorms, hurt/comfort, a night of knotting, lots of fluff and heartbreak, and a solid happy ending. 35 000 words.

where nerves endWelcome to Tucker Springs, Colorado. Population, 70-something-thousand. Home to beautiful mountain views, two respected universities, and a ridiculously high cost of living.

Acupuncturist Michael Whitman is a single dad struggling to make ends meet. When a mutual friend refers Jason as a patient, and Jason suggests a roommate arrangement to alleviate their respective financial strains, Michael jumps at the opportunity.

Living together should be easy, and it would be if not for Jason’s undeniable attraction to his new roommate. The temptation to act on those feelings is strong, but Michael is straight.

Or at least, that’s what their mutual friend claims…
