My Saintly Demon by R.M. Neill

The only thing better than church lady made food is a good joint and a better orgasm.
And when all three are delivered by a sexy priest?
Talk about a holy trifecta.

I know demons are supposed to be terrifying and evil. Some might even say cruel and heartless.
But the thing is, I don't like it.

The constant scowling and the raining of fire on people, it really isn't good for my mental health. Give me fluffy bunnies and a good cuddle after a long day and I'm a happy guy.

The problem is, I am a demon and I'm really freaking bad at it.

When my dad sent me to earth for a week to learn from humans how easy it is to be horrible, it sounded like a crap trip to me.

But I met a man there and he's not just any man. He's a priest, and he's as bad at his job as I am.

We're gonna help each other out. He'll teach me how to be bad and I'll... ah, dammit.

The only thing he's going to teach me is that I can fall in love with a human.

What could be scarier than that?

My Saintly Demon is an MM romance that features a marshmallow demon and a jaded priest who make an unlikely pair in this thought provoking and steamy novella about a demon who just can't be bad and seeks comfort, and a priest who needs balance between his want for the forbidden and a desire to find acceptance for who he really is.

Spellbound Omega by Aries France

Spellbound Omega

by Aries France

An omega with magical amnesia. An Alpha betrothed to another. Disruption in the Seelie Court.

Lycan is an omega hurt and on the run from . . .well he doesn’t even know that. He knows little to nothing, except that he’s lucky Seath is the one who finds him. Seath is the Pack Legate, the next Alpha of the NorthWest Pack; a rich and powerful pack full of humans, witches, shifters, and even a vampire, among a few other magical creatures. They take the abused omega in, and it starts to feel as if Lycan is exactly where he is supposed to be, even if he still has to put together who he actually is.

Betrothed by fate to another, Seath struggles with the intense attraction he feels pulling him toward the little wolf who needs to heal a lot more than just his broken bones. Of course, there are a million other things to keep him busy and keep the Pack thriving, not the least of which is a Pack Alpha with other duties, leaving Seath in charge of the Pack more often than not—even in the beginning of a mysterious unrest among the Fae.

But Fate wants her say, too, and as the spell-induced bonds on Lycan’s mind start to unravel, Seath and Lycan have to decide if they choose each other.

All's Fair in Love & Dare

by Rikki Leighton

If all's fair in love and dare, someone's heart will have to give, but how can we survive the fallout?

Being a virgin is my well kept secret.

Being straight is the lie I've hid behind for the last twenty-one years. The truth is, I don't know what I am. But when my best friend dares me to sleep with a guy, the floodgates of foreign desire open and threaten to bury me under their current.

Messages sent in secret to a stranger wake up my heart and libido in newfound ways, and while we trade scorchingly dirty texts, the person I pretend is on the other side of the screen has my conscience in a tailspin: my best friend's brother.

Blair Novak has been our protector for years, taking his father’s harsh words and harsher hands in stride as long as it meant me and his brother were safe. He’s always given us his everything and somehow, I never realized it.

I see it now. In the shake of his hands as he pulls me close with a white-knuckled grip. In the ink that he wears on his skin like armor, like patches to the wounds he’s spent his whole life healing.

Blair has given up so much of himself for his brother. I want to be his balm, not the final shard that rips him apart. Our connection has bloomed from words on a screen to a galaxy of emotions I can never rein in, and I'm not sure I want to.

Even at the expense of my best friend's heart.

Never Giving You Up y Aria Brennan

Never Giving You Up

by Aria Brennan

JESSE
Uprooting my life from my tiny coastal town on the southern edge of Australia to the dazzling endless sunshine of Southern California was meant to be simple. I had a job lined up at Zimmers surfboards and a room to stay with my bestie and his boyfriend. Simple.


Yet finding my feet in a foreign country whilst simultaneously dealing with why I was so, shall we say, stimulated by the nightly acoustics from my loved up roomies was something I wasn’t prepared for.


Which might explain why I can’t seem to take my eyes off the sexy, smooth talking barista who makes my morning coffees just the way I like them and who sets my pulse racing.


Angel is unlike any guy I have ever met and I am quickly addicted to more than just the daily shot of caffeine. But a love like ours never could run as smooth as Angel’s espressos, especially with my chaotic family and a much-loved baby brother who needs me now more than ever.

Now, Maddox is fighting for his life, and Jake is fighting for his sanity as an unknown magic challenges everything they thought they knew about their world.

A race across the country, a quirky, reclusive mage, and a new kind of magic may be their only hope of survival and a chance at lasting love.

Tequila and Tattoos

by Raquel Riley

There’s an old Latin phrase - omne trium perfectum – meaning everything that comes in threes is perfect.

Gordy-

We all have choices to make and consequences to suffer. Two decades ago, I chose Shannon. But Shannon didn’t choose me. He chose my family instead. And when he broke my heart, my consequence was an addiction to food. I spent years overcoming my struggles, all while my anger and hurt multiplied. I swore to myself I would never make the same mistake twice, until I met Aries. I fell hard for my best friend. Unfortunately, so had Shannon.

Were the mistakes of my past doomed to repeat themselves?

Shannon-

I chose to have a family, over the love of one man. Their warmth and acceptance were commodities I yearned for my entire life. But nothing comes without cost, and the price I paid to become a Carrick was too high. I lost my best friend, the only man I’d ever loved, and was convinced I’d never have it again. Until Aries.

I vowed never to hurt Gordy again. How was I going to find the strength to walk away from love a second time?

Aries-

My bromance with Gordy had quickly bloomed into a full-fledged romance, while my crush on Shannon had ignited from a spark into a raging inferno. I was in love with two men at the same time. Two men who hated each other. Did I mention they were also cousins? Choosing one was impossible. My only option was to make them see how good the three of us could be together.

Are love and hate really two sides of the same coin?

Scoring The Keeper by Hayden Hall

Scoring The Keeper

By Hayden Hall

Sawyer Price is the broodiest, most stubborn guy I ever had the joy of tutoring. He is also the sexiest, most irresistible jock at Northwood U. His hockey scholarship depends on passing the general courses and I’m the cleverest physics cog on campus.

I’m kind of brilliant. Not that I’m bragging. But the line of students in need of my help has got to mean something, right? And because I can’t tutor them all, I’m forced to choose my students another way.

The thing is, no matter how smart I might be, I’m a total dating disaster. So when Sawyer and I find a mutually beneficial arrangement, I have no way out. He’s going to teach me how to score a guy. And I would be mad to refuse. After all, everyone is dying to hang out with Sawyer Price.

The problem with having no dating experience whatsoever is that my tutor quickly becomes my newest obsession. But a guy like that would never want to have me for real, right? I’m just a hopeless nerd trying to trade my V-card and he’s the star goalie for Arctic Titans.

We are polar opposites in every way. Even if we take things a step further, we can never really be together.

It seems like the final dating lesson I must learn is on the subject of heartbreak.

Blurred Lines by Andi Jaxon

Blurred Lines

by Andi Jaxon

I’ve been in love with my best friend for years. 

The problem?

He thinks I’m straight.

And now that I share a dorm with him, his insistent need to cuddle -and lack of clothes- are blurring the careful lines I’ve drawn.

I'm struggling to keep my defenses up.

I love him but I’m afraid. 

Afraid I’m not enough to make him stay.

Afraid he’ll rip my heart out.

Afraid he won’t love me back.

But I see a side of him no one else does.

In the security of our room, he lets his mask fall. 

Let's me hold him. 

Something lurks in the dark recesses of his mind that keeps him from going all in. 

He’s just as hesitant about this as I am, but I don’t understand why.

 

Can I convince him to let me love him the way he deserves…

or will he take my heart and run away with it?

Mr. Blue Sky

Suits & Sevens Series

By Isla Olsen

If I could snap my fingers and suddenly be attracted to him, I’d do it without question. But I know that’s not a realistic option. I’ve never been attracted to men. Truthfully, I’ve never been attracted to anyone… Not in that way, at least.

Love, on the other hand? That’s something I know a hell of a lot about.
