Duncan Maxwell’s days revolve around helping others, so when his best friend needs Duncan to drive his younger brother around, he doesn’t hesitate to say yes. A little less sleep is an easy price to pay to improve someone else’s life, and many of Chance’s appointments are at The Collective, where he volunteers. It also doesn’t hurt that Chance is charming, funny, and...attractive.⁠ ⁠


Chance’s world spirals into a blur of adjusted medications and support groups and therapy appointments after his recent bipolar diagnosis. He can’t complain, though, because most people don’t have the support that his brother affords him. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, he focuses on not being a burden and searches for life beyond his diagnosis—maybe even a life with Duncan.⁠ ⁠

Baby Blue

by Shae Michaels

Wearing an oversized foam head and being the mascot of an NHL team might not have been his childhood dream, but Miles Gillespie likes his job with the Bangor Blue Bangers. He just wished that, occasionally, people would remember his name isn’t actually Blue.

A PR executive with the Bangers, Scott Delgado feels a certain responsibility to monitor all of Blue’s activities and appearances, even if he isn’t possibly, technically, his boss. And it must be that sense of responsibility that has him flying across the country when Miles gets injured.

As Scott gets to know the man inside the suit, will he be able to handle falling for the man with eyes as blue as the synthetic hair of the mascot he plays or will he let their work roles get in the way?



The Kite & Tallowwood

Christmas Crossover

by NR Walker

Harry and Asher are living peacefully on the North Coast of NSW. Life is quiet, boring, and utterly perfect. Though coming from a life of danger and excitement, Harry worries that Asher will grow bored of the “normal” life. He misses the adrenaline, the action, and most of all, he misses his “baby.”

So Harry goes against his own better judgement and organises a special Christmas gift for Asher.

Life has been picture-perfect in the sleepy little town of Tallowwood. Since the horrors of the murder trial ended, Jake and August couldn’t be happier. Tallowwood was unassuming and uneventful—just how they liked it.

Even the town’s newest residents are decidedly normal. On paper, that is. In person, August isn’t so sure. He’d done background checks on them when they’d first arrived and found nothing, but something about them was off.

But when the Coffs Coast Gun Club sends an application for a Christmas gala day and a familiar name catches his eye, August is determined to meet the newcomers in an official capacity. He wants to see if his hunch is correct.

What was a surprise Christmas gift for Asher, might just unbox a whole can of worms.


Pucking Wild

by Zack Wish

Connor Valley is a true fighter, a wild-man whose reputation as the Ice Bears’ enforcer precedes him wherever he goes… for better and for worse.

Connor grew up in the forests that surrounded his family’s mountain cabin. He was never meant to make it in the big leagues – but thanks to a never say die attitude, he did.

Corey Hales was born and raised in LA into a life of money and privilege. Corey could have been anyone or done anything he wanted – but he chose hockey. Corey is fast, skilful, and plays with a smile on his face – but does he have the killer instinct to make his undoubted talent count?

The Mafia men who run the Ice Bears are concerned that Corey will be targeted by malignant forces looking to dent the Ice Bears’ run to the playoffs and designate Connor to be Corey’s guardian, mentor, and shadow – both on and off the ice.

Connor and Corey soon realize that they might have more in common than they realize and sparks fly, but when a deadly threat presents itself, Connor decides that it’s time to let his wild side out once more and do whatever it takes to protect his boy – no matter the cost.

Pucking Wild is a standalone MM Age Gap, high heat hockey & mafia romance featuring found family, spanking, gruff hockey Daddies and sassy Littles, and it comes with a pucktastic and ice-melting HEA.

The Deadly Puck Daddies are here – and hockey will never be the same again.

The Player's Lounge

by Dan Calley

Quint has a secret – he’s a Player: a reincarnated soul walking amongst the living with his past life memories intact, with all the heartache over remembering his loves and losses.

Society knows Players like Quint as the One Percent, but only seems to hear about the bad ones, not understanding the burdens and knowledge that most have to carry.

This is Quint’s first time as a Player and he’s living it, using his past life’s knowledge to find his way in a new world, but he still hasn’t found what he came here for – Leo.

In their previous lives, Quint and Leo declared their love right before they died, and made a simple pact: in the next lifetime, they’d find each other.

Only Leo isn’t keeping to his promise.

Needing to understand why, Quint has one option left to try to find Leo: The Player’s Lounge…. A mysterious app where the lost souls of the One Percent can reconnect.

Land of Lightning & Liars

by LP Cowling

The world is shrinking.

Lithan is the scheming King of Winterhold, trying to step out of his father’s shadow, and rebuild after losing the Battle of Winterhold. He and his people are scrambling to defend themselves from the encroaching Arvandorians, who wish to rule the entire human realm.

Thae’lenal is the Warchief of the Elves, who are abandoning their ancestral home of the Stardust Isle, in order to flee the desolation that their kind had wrought on the land. They will bring their steel and magic to the human realm, to carve out a new life for their people, by force.

Their struggles will become one in a tale of promise, betrayal, and hope, to decide the fate of the north, and the entire elven race.


Deal In Divinity

by Chely Penn

Lots of people have demons, but they’re not usually literal.

Heaven and Hell are warring on Earth, and Ander Castillo is stuck in the middle. Ever since demons broke through the gates of Hell and decimated humanity, Ander, along with other “blends”—humans with angelic blood—has been hiding in Gardners, one of the few remaining sanctuaries. The decrepit city is watched over by strange, distant angels, who protect its residents but offer no advice or comfort.

Leaving Gardners is a death sentence, but love drives Ander to attempt the impossible and set out beyond the walls to find the foster brother he lost long ago. Yet Ander’s no true angel, and a few feathers on his neck can’t save him from the monsters running wild over Earth. Soon enough he faces an impossible choice: a vicious death or making a deal that will tie him to a bloodthirsty demon. Forever.

Everything is not as it seems, though. Ander’s left wondering if evil can wear an angel’s face or love can hide in a demon’s luminous eyes. As he and his new deal-bound “partner” are drawn into the affairs of entities far beyond them, Ander’s strength and resolve are tested, and only love and loyalty will give him a chance at a future worth living.


Never Getting Over You

by Aria Brennan

What if you only ever get one shot at love?

I had my chance. A chance at a love so complete, so pure, so all-consuming that when it was gone I was shattered.
It’s been five years since the love of my life walked away from me, his promises to love me forever becoming little more than a pretty lie.

Jade Rosewood was always destined for a life far bigger than mine. The son and heir to the global Rosewood media empire, I was never more than a distraction to be crushed. Besides, he has moved on, lives a glamorous life in New York city. He even went and married a woman.

I have never moved on.

But then a gay cheating scandal has Jade Rosewood’s marriage imploding, splashed about the news like it’s everyone’s business and I am spiralling. Then, a knock at my front door sees my life flipped upside down and a chance at maybe, just maybe, finding that once-in-a-lifetime love again before it slips away forever.


Most of You

by E.M. Lindsey

There he was…

Wearing glasses.
Chopping wood like some kind of fantasy lumberjack.

And Emil was officially helpless.

Moving to the East Coast, Emil was there for two things exactly: to become a better person, and to face the part of his past he’d spent his entire life avoiding.

He most certainly hadn't planned on falling in love.

It was one thing to sleep with his absurdly hot neighbor for a single, steamy one-night-stand, but it was quite another to become friends. And the longer Emil knows Renzo, the harder it is to walk away.

However, Emil has no faith in his ability to change, no matter how hard he tries, and he just wishes Renzo would believe him. He just wishes the man would stop giving him hope that behind those soft kisses was everything he’d ever wanted, and more.


The Wind Will Guide Us

by Sasha M. Valerio

When forever is a harsh reality, how long would you live for the one you love?

After a forbidden romance ends in tragedy, a powerful deity offers a chance to defy mortality.

But every gift comes with a price.

Cursed with repeating cycles of death and rebirth, and driven by a power they can’t contain, the star-crossed lovers traverse the world in search of a place to call home. From the blood-soaked battlefields of Caledonia to the sun-kissed islands of Greece, they watch as civilisations rise and fall, their souls forever bound to the chilling voice on the wind.

With sprawling landscapes, vivid imagery and richly layered characters, “The Wind Will Guide Us” is a novella that blends history and mythology into a haunting tale of love through the ages and souls that never die.



The Unexpected Mr. Smith

by Jesse Bond

Island-born Kimo Malala prided himself on his dazzling display of sexuality and polished drag persona. He lived a self-proclaimed, carefree, no-strings-attached lifestyle. When his best friend and number one wingman found the love of his life, Kimo was determined not to allow unwelcome emotions affect him or the frequency of his hot hookups. The trouble was that they always wanted to stick around when Kimo was definitely not relationship material.

John Smith just wanted to get through the day. If only his neighbor would stop bringing obnoxious guys around the apartment complex, he could live in the peaceful existence he'd chosen. John's two young daughters were his world, the last pieces of his past that he held onto after losing nearly everything.

What neither man expected was to embark on a new friendship together. Could Kimo keep John tucked safely in the friend zone? Or would John change everything?

This novel is a best friend to lovers, pansexual-awakening, gay romance with low angst, medium steam, and plenty of good times.
