waylonWaylon had plans for his life… plans that came to a screeching halt when his father named him Alpha of the Council.

Alpha snow leopard Waylon loves living among humans and away from the shifter politics that surrounded him growing up. He has friends and an apartment he loves, and is about to begin his first year of law school. And then the call comes, the one that changes everything.

Omega snow leopard Daxon is one of the lucky ones… or so he’d been told his entire life. Born to two wolves, his beast was born out of the genetic crap shoot and a pair of recessive genes. He doesn’t need to follow the laws of his kind… as long as he can go without the council knowing he exists. If only it were that easy.

After a no-show employee ruins his day off, Daxon ends up delivering an order to one of his coffee shop’s biggest customers. When he enters the hotel conference room, he’s instantly hit with the scent of another snow leopard… and not just any snow leopard… his true mate.

An Omega for Waylon is the first book in the highly anticipated Council of the Snow Leopards shifter series by the popular co-writing team of Colbie Dunbar and Lorelei M Hart. It’s a sweet with knotty heat M/M Mpreg Shifter Romance featuring an alpha snow leopard thrown into a role he is woefully unprepared for, a coffee shop owner whose plans for the future didn’t include becoming their kind’s Alpha Omega, shifters whose beasts were on the verge of extinction, the compromise that changes everything, true love, fated mates, and of course, an adorable baby. If you love your shifters hawt, your omegas strong, and your mpreg with heart, download your copy of An Omega For Waylon today.

roomsOne kiss tore them apart. Will a second bring them back together?

Knox Townsend can hardly believe it when he walks into Playgroundz Café to find his old high school crush, Trevor Channing, working the cash register. Once upon a time, the two shared a smoldering, passionate kiss while their prom dates were passed out … and never spoke of it again. Now Knox is back in town for the next week to upgrade the café’s coffee machines. But the only thing he really wants to upgrade are his feelings for Trevor, long simmering and now reignited. This time, hopefully for good!

Trevor hasn’t seen Knox since he left town right after graduation without so much as a backward glance. Suddenly he’s Trevor’s boss and staying at the same hotel where they’d shared their first, and only, kiss. One of the front desk clerks is Trevor’s regular customer and, for a few gift cards, Trevor checks into the room next door to Knox’s. The room with the adjoining doors he plans to keep unlocked all week, just in case!

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.

My monster grieves, and I ache for him.

But blood isn’t thicker than water, and found family is everything.

Chaos reigns as the attacks from the mimic escalate, and the daemon clan of San DeLain goes on high alert. But violence is never far away, and when the past doesn’t stay buried, the answers will lead to even more questions.

Death is coming, and the end is near. But for whom?

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.

6A649FAF-652E-4B94-8F3B-5AFB72CA0BB2Alpha 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.

braidA M/M/F romance novel about finding the balance between freedom and commitment.

Janis and Niall were best friends almost from their first day working together on tour. Over the years, that friendship grew stronger. Her troubled long-distance relationship and his slow recovery from losing the love of his life gave them more points of connection, not fewer. And almost three years in, they had to face it: they were in love. There was only one problem. Janis was straight, and Niall wasn’t.

They didn’t know what to do. As a woman and a man, certain combinations were, technically, possible. But there are some things you don’t ask even your best friend to do. If a day arrived when one of them found a person to meet that unmet need, what would happen to them?

And then they met Geoffrey. A man who enjoyed women and men. A man they both found attractive and charming; a man attracted in turn to each of them; a man whose particular circumstances made the experiment possible. Now the question was, would their unique combination be the catalyst for a new, indissoluble element … or would it blow up in all their faces?

After fifteen years in the military, Eli Reynolds has returned to San Francisco with broken dreams and a broken heart, courtesy of his now ex-boyfriend. He’s determined to avoid anyone like his cheating ex—which means steering clear of Tabletop Tavern’s resident flirt, Arjun Gupta.

On top of his job as chef at Tabletop Tavern, he’s been stripping at nights to cover the extra costs. She’s worth every sleepless hour, but he’s desperate for relief—of any sort. Too bad Tabby’s cousin Eli is too high and mighty for a fling.

Eli and Arjun can’t seem to avoid each other, and with each collision they realize more and more that they might have misjudged—especially when all those sparks spill over into something hot and unforgettable. However, when Eli’s folks decide to move across the country, Eli needs to choose: remain in the place that reminds him of his failures or start over fresh—and if Arjun isn’t here for keeps, Eli can’t risk his heart to stay.

Life is never dull as an agent of P.I.S. but Tristan James didn’t expect his fourth week as a newly turned phoenix shifter and federal agent to be spent hunting for the person who was dissecting paranormals.

Maddox Smith was going monogamous. If that weren’t shocking enough, Tristan was also moving in with him.

riseSometimes it’s not just bats in the belfry.

Omega phoenix shifter Cyrus is running out of time—in this life, anyway. Unless he finds his warlock mate, he will burn to ashes, regenerate, and hatch once again, the memories of this life fleeting at best. He has all but given up hope when a down-on-his-luck warlock comes rolling down his driveway.

Warlock and fox shifter Bas needs a place to call home. When he stumbles upon a tiny, nearly abandoned town, he finds himself wanting to stay. Decent at casting spells, horrible at shifting—and entirely too smitten with Cyrus for his own good—Bas isn’t sure what his future holds, but he sure knows who he wants in his future. The problem is Cyrus may have very little future left to share.

Will Cyrus’s warlock be strong enough to bind the two together, or is their relationship on borrowed time?

Rise is the second book in the sweet with knotty heat M/M Mpreg shifter romance series The Phoenix Omega Trilogy by the popular writing team of Colbie Dunbar and Lorelei M. Hart. It features an alpha warlock/shifter who’s not so good at the shifting part, a phoenix omega who’s just about given up hope of finding his mate, muffins and pie galore, an electrical connection, a not-so-welcome blast from the past, true love, fated mates, meggs, a sweet baby, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

foreverJake and Micah met at eighteen and formed a deep connection the instant they saw each other. That was the easy part.

Nothing Like Forever is a soul mates-to-partners, can’t-live-with-him/can’t-live-without-him unconventional love story in which Jake doesn’t want romance or a happily-ever-after, and Micah wants it all. With Jake. For twenty years they’ve been in and out of each other’s lives trying to get it right. They fail, retreat, disappear from each other’s lives for years at a time, and then fate (or a friend’s wedding) brings them back together for another attempt at making it work. Their connection always runs deep, but no matter what it takes for them to stay together, one thing’s certain: these guys have a unique path to finding their HEA, and when they get there, it might not look the way either of them expect.

This novel is about learning what you can and can’t expect from your partner and what you can and can’t accept for yourself in a relationship, what lines you’re willing to cross, what compromises you’re willing to make, and where you have to stay true to who you are no matter how you feel about the other person. It features an aromantic MC and a guaranteed HEA that’s as unique as these two men and the journey it takes them to find forever.

ownersAll it took was one look for Ben to know he’d found his forever.

He just needs to figure out how to get the enchanting man to come down from his gilded cage and see what is waiting for him down below. But when the stunning dancer in the cage spends more time hiding from the world than embracing it, Ben knows he’s going to have to get creative if he wants to catch the pretty bird’s attention.

All it took was one look for Conner to know the man standing in front of him was insane.

It also only took one look for Conner to realize he might have a thing for crazy men with big dreams. Something about the passion in the bold man’s eyes pulls him in, but what captures Conner’s imagination are the tempting promises and the way the man sees more than just a naughty bird dancing high above the crowd.

**Author’s Note** This is a standalone novella that shows the start of the relationship between Ben and Conner, the owners of the Bound & Controlled club that have appeared in several of my books. You do not have to read those books to enjoy this story.

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.

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.

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 learned the hard way how bad the alternative can be.

But when an unbelievably hot, strangely intense man saves him from a mugging, Danny has a feeling everything is about to change. Especially when that man suddenly pops out a pair of fangs.

Roman Mourier has been wandering aimlessly for decades, waiting for the inevitable day when the last of his humanity leaves him, and the demon inside him takes permanent control.

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.

It is the fifth book in the Farbonnur Elves series and is best read after Tower of Lies and before Demon of Darkness. ToS has an enemies to lovers relationship with a happily ever after (for now – there’s still a blood demon!), more Al and Denny sunshine/grumpy sweetness, a hive of baby lubarikin and an exhausted new parent, #GetWerlAGirlfriend (I heard you) and more spicy ritual goodness!

experimentWanted: Single, hot, young man to sweep…my best friend’s brother off his feet.

Enzo After failing big in Boston, I’m back home with my tail between my legs. And then somehow I rope myself into getting Carson’s dating life in order. We make a bet. Get him a boyfriend before Christmas or I lose and I have to do what he says. Only considering the feelings I still harbor for him, losing may not be such a bad idea.

Carson Everyone tells me I’m a workaholic. What I really am is a man with a broken heart. Until I get the wind knocked off my feet by my brother’s best friend. Under the mistletoe. Because apparently my life is anything but subtle. He’s hell bent on getting me a boyfriend that is not him, but he’s all I can think about. This little holiday experiment between us is going to end up in disaster. I know it. I just hope it doesn’t leave me with more pieces to pick up.

The Holiday Experiment is a Christmas standalone and contains a young musician trying to find his place in the world, an almost forty-year-old workaholic that can’t catch a break, an adorable goddaughter that seems to repeat all the bad words and a witchy mom that loves to bake magical cakes and solve problems.

save me“Save me, Santa. Please. I’ve been very good this year and I haven’t bought any toys in months.” (Shh…white lies are okay when spiders are involved.)

When a Christmas wish has a Secret Santa showing up to save the day, Brady knows he’s found the man, or possibly elf, of his dreams…until he gets accidentally poisoned and can’t remember his Christmas savior. But Santa comes to his rescue again when his Secret Santa rewards his good behavior with a new toy and a sweet letter. However, the one thing the note doesn’t tell him is the name of the man who saved the day.

Thin walls make for weird neighbors.

When open windows have Jude heading upstairs to save his neighbors from the biggest spider he’s ever seen, he’s just a bit frustrated. Well, he’s frustrated until the cutest little he’s ever seen kisses his cheek and thanks him for saving the day. Now the biggest problem is his cute little’s lack of memory and the fact that they’d never actually spoken before the great spider invasion.

Sometimes the holidays are stressful…and sometimes they’re magic.

hellAction. Comedy. Romance. And that one weird guy.

When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences – and the media frenzy – aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father – a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron otherwise known as the THIRDS – pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.

Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three HumaniTherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer – and every bit as dangerous.
