I was the most sought-after concert pianist in the world. Now I barely leave my apartment. Injury and addiction have taken their toll, and I can't seem to get my life back on track.

My best friend wants to send me on a month-long vacation to the Moonlight Inn to get ready to play for his wedding. In New Jersey. The place where I almost died. My friends think I should get “hot and heavy” at the Jersey shore, but I just want to be able to perform again.

I didn’t anticipate meeting someone like Sean O’Neil, the owner of Moonlight Inn. He’s down-to-earth and kind, and when I’m with him, I feel unaccountably safe. His quiet encouragement helps me conquer my fears and get back in front of an audience.

As my confidence grows, the world I thought closed to me, opens once more. Word spreads of my return, and people from around the globe are asking me to play for them. At last, I can get back to doing what I love most.

But the luster of touring dulls when a tragedy in Sean’s life prevents him from joining me. Will I have to choose between the career I love and the man who holds my heart?

Six

by Paulina Ian-Kane

Oliver “Ollie” Truman

My purpose in life has always been to protect my little brother. And the only way to do that is to do what my dirtbag of a father says—easier said than done. So my plan is to save enough money to grab our backpacks and leave these miserable days behind us. There’s no harm in having a little fun in the meantime though, is there? And the growling beast who flattens his opponents with a single punch looks like a perfectly hot diversion to me.

The crowd calls him Hulk. Dark intense eyes, large hands, scarred back, huge rocky pecs, thick arms, and tree-trunk thighs. And the bulge in his pants is not a mirage, a very proportionate…appendage.

He growls, I snort. He rejects me, I stalk him. He threatens me, I kiss him. He orders me around, I…that depends, are we in or out of bed?

His broody, rough demeanor dares me to get closer, and his crude, hard words turn me on like nothing ever before. My sassy mouth has gotten me in trouble more times than I can count but he seems to have found a very delicious way to shut me up.

But when I discover his protective side? His possessiveness? The secrets? The rage and destruction?
Can two broken souls find their missing pieces among the dark, bloody, jagged ones?

WARNING-This is not a sci-fi angel story, unless you see eager vigilantes with a dark side as angels.

This is an action packed romance with an HEA and no cliffhangers. It features an over the top posses-sive mountain of a man, and a bratty, determined twunk with a sassy mouth. There’s violence, blood, torture (only of very bad people), dark humor, amazing side characters and very rough, spicy scenes. Morality’s grey area is quite stretched in this story. Please check the triggers at the beginning of the book.

This is book two in the Angels of Wrath Series. Each book follows a different couple.

The Reclusive Mountain Man

by Casey Cox

MARSH

Tal Bellamy is everything I'm not. A jet-setting playboy. A sexy silver fox. A guy who lives his life loudly and unapologetically.

We've been friends for almost twenty years. When he comes to town for a visit, I make a vow. There's something I need to get off my chest. Something I've been hiding.

Tal's the perfect guy to confide in because I know he won't judge me. The last thing I expect is to get plastered and hook up with him.

TAL

Marsh Duncan is a big, burly mountain man. A recluse. Grouchy at times. Or at least, that's what he wants people to think.

Not me. I know the man beneath the gruff exterior. When he's around his brothers or hanging out with me, his kindness and warmth shine through.

The truth is, Marsh is actually one giant marshmallow.

Another truth?… I'm all-out, head over heels, slap-me-sideways in love with him.

My plan is to confess my secret when I visit, not sleep with him. But it seems that I'm not the only one with something to reveal.

Now that we've both shared our truth, the question is: have we ruined our friendship, or are we on the brink of a forever love?

Healing the Twin

by Nora Phoenix

Everyone thinks they know me. Hell, I don’t even know who I am anymore.

We were at the top. Tomás and Tiago Banner, the most famous twins in the world. The sexiest men alive. My whole identity was rooted in being the older brother, in taking care of my twin, in being a model.

Until Tiago fell in love and left me on my own. Now I’m lost, drifting without an anchor. Hurting.

To remain close to my twin, I stay in Forestville, the small town we grew up in. I’ve got friends here, old ones and new. Like Fir, the adorable redhead who had a crush on me in high school. We reconnect, and I find myself sharing things with Fir I’ve never told anyone else.

When the budding friendship between us becomes more, I’m shocked. Fir is not the type for a fling, and I know nothing else.

Our lives couldn’t be further apart. I’m a celebrity, an eternal bachelor who’s always played the field. Fir is the local doctor, a single dad still grieving his deceased husband. He needs more than I could ever give him.

I have a choice to make. Can I become the man Fir deserves?

I’ve never wanted anything more.

Healing the Twin is the third book in the Forestville Silver Foxes series, a contemporary small-town MM romance series featuring hot silver foxes and the men who fall in love with them. Each book can be read as a standalone.

Curse of Dawn

by Richard Amos

I used to be a morning person.
The zombie apocalypse put a stop to that.

For the past two years, a virus aptly named Dawn rises every day at first light to kill any human it touches, turning them into ravenous zombies.
There’s no cure, no form of resistance against it, nothing to turn things around.

Most of the living humans are gone now. Only those of us with a different kind of blood are spared the killing blow of Dawn.

With the dead walking and eating their way across the lands, I fight every day to stay alive.

I’m fae and trapped here on Earth after a vacation gone wrong, wandering this doomed realm with only a virtual pet for company, pining for my homelands.

But then along comes Miko Reyes—yummy alpha werewolf with muscles for days. He’s moody, broody, and can kick some serious booty. After he helps me escape a deadly predicament, I find myself sticking with him and his pack of merry wolves.

Everything about Miko gets me hot under the collar. Seriously hot. And it might just be wishful thinking on my part, but is there something there between us?
Hmmm...

Regardless, the man is a warrior, a machine, a true leader, and he is determined to bring an end to the Curse of Dawn.

I just hope it can become a reality.

Curse of Dawn is the first book in a Post-Apocalyptic M/M Romance series packed with action, adventure, a virtual pet which never needs its batteries changed, and the undeniable attraction between a fae and an alpha werewolf.

This book is not a standalone.

Oh Buoy

by Ava Olsen

Andrew: 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. I prepare to meet another entitled jerk when I step on board his ship, but it turns out that Rowan is the exception to the billionaire rule. And I get a first-hand glimpse of the kindhearted man behind the money.

The professional line between us melts away but I’ve been badly burned by a workplace relationship gone wrong. And Rowan and I live in two very different worlds. I can’t – shouldn’t - fall for Rowan Carter.

Oh boy. Too late.

Rowan: I run a real estate empire but being in the top one percent isn’t all fun and caviar. The family business has struggled these past two years and now the one place that was my refuge may be taken away from me. Add to that, I’m a target for the paparazzi because of a former relationship. I’ve never felt so alone. Lonely. Unmoored…

Until a dreamy American named Andrew Slater walks aboard my ship and into my life. Andrew takes delight in answering my snark with sarcastic retorts and his wit is matched by quiet acts of kindness.

Falling in love is an unexpected voyage for both of us. Unless the press gets wind of our relationship, and then all bets are off.

But I fight to win, because Andrew is the most important deal of my life.

Oh Buoy is a boss-employee, friends to lovers, MM romance filled with tropical locations, spicy banter and swoony moments.

The Wild Within

by Gwen Martin

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.

But while Chance struggles to tame the wildness within himself, he watches Duncan silently push himself past the brink of exhaustion. In his desperate attempts to help find balance, has Chance caused Duncan to destroy his own?

Entangled

by Rebecca Quinn

These men killed mine, and for that, they have to die

Bristlebrook is up in smoke, my brutes are dead, and Sam’s camp is a powder keg begging for a flame.

Injured and furious over their losses, the surviving hunters are preoccupied with their own problems. Their factions and allegiances. Their internal wars and pissing contests. The new world they want to forge. They don’t look twice at their meek little captive.

They shattered my heart five ways when they killed my brutes, so I don’t care anymore. If I’m to stop the villains, I need to become one.

I need to be smart. I need to be ruthless.

Even if it means razing myself to the ground to do it . . .

We’re bringing her home, or we’re not coming home

They took our librarian from right under our noses—and with Lucky injured, Bristlebrook in flames, and our personal problems finally spilling over, we’re fracturing.

But we need to be better.

Bringing Eden home is the most important mission of our lives.

Followed closely by the second most important . . . building her a home worth returning to.

***
The Brutes of Bristlebrook is a dark(ish) post-apocalyptic, steamy romance series, and Eden will end up with three or more love interests after I’ve appropriately obliterated my readers’ nerves. Expect complex characters, 1st person present tense, multiple POVs, MM in the harem, angst, lots of laughs, and to encounter material that some readers may find sensitive.

This book is a big boy at over 180k words and deals with a lot of heavy content. I promise it gets brighter as it goes on (you know... mostly). Please see my website for TWs - your mental health matters.
