Royally Screwed by Lynn Van Dorn

 

lvd-rs-eBook

 

Take one betrothal gone awry…

Prince Angelo is destined to marry Prince Yuri. Never mind that Angelo isn’t gay and didn’t choose to be saddled with a moony-eyed princeling who is determined to ruin Angelo’s life. Then one day Yuri goes too far and Angelo has to take matters into his own hands.

Add one doomed arranged marriage…

Prince Yuri is destined forever to pine after Prince Angelo. Arranged marriages are archaic and awful enough without being stuck for life with someone you want who will never, ever in a million years want you back. Still, for someone who claims to want nothing to do with Yuri, Angelo is surprisingly possessive.

And you just might get one unexpected romance.

Two men, thrown together by fate and scheming parents, shouldn’t have a prayer of finding a happy ever after. But fate can be fickle, and love can exist where you never thought it could.

Royally Screwed is a 75,000-word M/M novel featuring royalty, a poorly-thought-out betrothal, one prince in need of a firm hand, a second prince who isn’t as straight as he always thought, drunken texting, bickering, practice kissing, odious British nobility, and falling in love despite all the reasons why you shouldn’t.

Teaser 1

Excerpt:

“I’m going to be your husband,” Angelo said, “sooner or later, like it or not. What’s the point in putting it all off?”

Yuri raised one finely shaped brown eyebrow. “So you’re cool with not having sex again for like… ever? Or kissing or holding hands, even? Because I’m not. I’ll go mad. I’m not ready yet. It’s way too soon.” He looked at Angelo like he was an animal caught in a trap, terrified and half-crazed to escape in any way it could, even if that meant chewing through a limb.

Angelo rubbed Yuri’s shoulder tentatively. “I know,” he said soberly. “I’ve been thinking about it for days.”

The idea of Yuri putting himself again into the hands of Francis, or someone like him, terrified Angelo. It didn’t matter that Yuri was gay and Angelo wasn’t. Someone needed to protect Yuri and that someone was Angelo. Would always be Angelo. Yuri was his curse and his cross to bear and his inevitable destiny. And despite years of resentment and irritation and anger, that still made Yuri his.

Yuri relaxed his stiffened posture enough to slump against Angelo. “Angel, it’s a really stupid idea. We’ll keep going on as we are. We’ve got years to date and ‘fall in love.’ No point rushing it. You’ll have to pretend your whole life. Be discreet when you need to fuck someone. You won’t be allowed to fall in love, and if you do, you’ll never be able to act on it. I get you’re feeling overprotective and cave mannish, but you don’t need to be. I’ll be way more careful next time. I’ll find someone who can hurt me, but not hurt me. Those men exist. I know they do. Let me find one and live before my freedom is completely gone.”

Nervous fear dumped adrenaline into Angelo’s bloodstream. It made him want to do something—anything—to make things better. “I can do that,” Angelo burst out, licking his dry lips. “I can be that man. For you. For this.”

“Do what, be what?” Yuri put his mobile aside and gave Angelo his full attention, spearing him with crystalline blue eyes. “You’re. Not. Gay.”

“Um. I can hold your hand. In public.”

Yuri rolled his eyes. “Seriously? I can see you sweat from just the thought of it. What about the rest? Can you really kiss me in front of others? Pretend for the rest of your life to be in love with me? Do you have any clue what this’ll mean? I don’t think you do. You don’t have to protect me. I’m fine. Francis was a huge mistake, but I’m fine. Go home to your college and your girlfriend and forget about me for a few years. I don’t want this, you big idiot!”

Yuri was angry and impatient, that was clear enough, but under that, Angelo thought he sensed fear as well. And he caught the use of Angel. Yuri called him that so seldom he felt he could count the times on one hand, but tonight he’d used it twice.

“It doesn’t matter what we want, does it, though? What if I say, ‘Fine, go find some perfect guy to spank and fuck you. I’ll see you in five years,’ and then you fall in love? What’re you going to do then? Break your heart and his? There’s no way waiting will make things better, or easier. I can’t… be everything you need and you’re not what I want, either, but I can do my best to try. If it means I have to learn to kiss you, then I’ll learn to kiss you, but damn it, princess, I’m not going to let anyone hurt you like this anymore.”

Yuri crossed his arms over his chest. “I don’t believe you. I don’t think you have the stomach for it.”

Part of Angelo knew he was being goaded but he didn’t care. He cupped Yuri’s face and looked into eyes that were panicky, but something else as well. Yuri’s gaze felt like it could bore holes into his soul. “Relax, princess. I can’t do this if you won’t relax.”

“Fuck me,” Yuri said. “This isn’t real. And I didn’t mean that literally. Don’t get your straight-boy hopes up.”

“I wouldn’t dream of it,” Angelo said, leaning closer to whisper in Yuri’s ear. He dropped a light, experimental kiss on the side of Yuri’s jaw. Under his fingers, the prince shuddered.

There. That hadn’t been so bad. This would be easier than Angelo had thought. With his cupped hands, he positioned Yuri’s face exactly where he wanted it, then kissed him. It was… unexpected. It wasn’t at all the disgusting thing he’d thought it might be. This he could definitely do. Everything would be fine. And just to prove it, he kissed Yuri again. And again. And again. Because practice made perfect.

Throne Together By Zoe Dawn

Rosavia Royals, Book 3


RR-3-ThroneTogether-Dawn-Medium
A pining prince needs a second chance at love.

Prince Julius has only ever wanted one man. Raised alongside Prince Dante of Thedes, the two were inseparable until their unspoken mutual attraction ignited into a single passionate encounter. Convinced that it ruined their friendship, Julius retreated to his duties in Rosavia, where he daydreams of another chance to win Dante’s heart.

After four years apart, fate brings Prince Julius back to Thedes. He offers Dante a coveted invitation: return to the Rosavian palace for ten days, and be his plus-one to the Royal Ball of the century. Before long, they realize one night of passion wasn’t enough, and they can’t imagine losing each other again.

As the clock ticks down to the ball, Julius catches wind of Dante’s family meddling, and he must decide if their feelings are real or if they’ve both been played. Were they always meant for each other, or is it all an illusion that will melt away at midnight?

Exclusive from Zoe & the Inspirations behind her Prince:

Throne Together


How did you become a part of this project/world?

It was pure luck! My first trilogy (Best Men, Inc.) which was going to be my debut is structured like their Men of Hidden Creek books because they all take place at the same time and overlap heavily. They wanted to help a new author get started and I made myself available to drop everything and write a book with them! Now I’m debuting with Rosavia instead (and I’m incorporating the lessons I’ve learned into Best Men, Inc.). A dream come true!

 

Where did your story’s inspiration come from?
The title was already decided when I entered the Rosavian world. Throne Together was obviously going to be about two princes. It made sense for them to know each other their whole life and even be raised together for diplomacy reasons. I lurrrrve a slow burn, yearning, childhood-friends-to-lovers story! The Royal Ball gave me the perfect excuse to throw these two star-crossed lovers together to uncross their stars, untangle their feelings and fall madly in love with a time limit ticking down!

 

How did you create your Prince?
I have the only two-princes story! I wanted these two princes to be raised together so they would speak both Rosavian and Thedian, know each other inside-out-and-upside-down from birth, be totally comfortable around each other… until the big world-changing event, of course… 😉

Julius, the Rosavian prince, had to be a LITTLE bit of a himbo—big and sweet but emotionally clueless about what his best friend has always felt for him. He’s even kind of clueless about whether he’s attracted to men or women since he hasn’t realized that it’s only ever been Dante for him. Meanwhile Dante, the Thedian prince, is totally aware he’s been pining for Julius ever since he left for his own country and adult responsibilities.

The most fun part was all the research involved in creating my own little country. I wanted Thedes to be its own place, yet feel familiar to anyone who’s been to the Mediterranean. Lazy hot days, white stones, airy halls, shimmering harbors… Dante finding out his love for painting made sense! Meanwhile, Julius is from a world of alpine lakes and lush green fields, steep red roofs and narrow cobbled streets. His family also played a big role in shaping him, of course.

Book 1: Up for Heir By Stella Starling

1

A playboy heir needs a man to marry, right now.

After spending half his life dodging his duty to the crown, the rebel heir to the Rosavian throne has been told in no uncertain terms that it’s time to settle down. Crown Prince Leopold has one month and a vetted list of suitable princesses, and he will announce his engagement during Rosavia’s Royal Ball. But Leo’s got his own ideas about what really suits him…

Royal Librarian Edvin Blom is good at not attracting attention. Shy and self-conscious of his stutter, he’s used to being overlooked and more than happy to stay in the background. At least, until the crown prince with a wild reputation shows up at the library’s new opening and decides to flirt with Edvin’s sister…

Edvin isn’t at all what Leo thought he wanted, but turns out to be everything he can’t stay away from. Edvin’s been burned by falling for someone out of his league before, though. And believing that Leo has really fallen for him? While Edvin’s drowning in his own doubts and insecurities, that might prove impossible… unless love gives them both a reason to come up for air.

Book 2: Reign or Shine By HJ Welch

A secret prince needs a lost tourist to save.

Prince Cassander is on vacation from his overdeveloped sense of duty. While hiding out as simply ‘Cas’ in the Rosavian capital, he rescues a gorgeous, distressed American tourist. Matty has no idea that Cas is second in line to the throne. And with only two weeks together to explore the sparks between them, he doesn’t need to ever find out.

New Yorker Matty Doyle is a fish out of water, taking care of his niece and mending his broken heart. When Cas rescues him, the handsome stranger coaxes Matty out of his shell and he throws caution to the wind. Nobody knows him here. Would it hurt to live a little for once?

But a prince can’t stay secret in his own country for long. Cas would give anything to protect Matty from reality, but how can this fantasy together continue when they belong in different worlds?

Book 4: In His Court By Max Rowan

4

A spy prince needs a man who sees through his disguise.

Prince Benedict is not what he seems. His image as a lazy playboy is carefully constructed to hide the truth. Trained since childhood to become Rosavia’s top spy, he spends his life in disguise—and danger—to protect his country. Nobody sees the loneliness in his heart.

Felix Wright is a genius with four degrees, no real-world experience, and a top-secret job… and he’s never even been kissed. A lifetime of being alienated for his most valuable assets has left him reluctant to trust the charming prince who thrusts him into fieldwork for the very first time.

When the Crown Jewels are stolen two weeks before the royal ball, it’s their job to save the country’s reputation. Benedict helps Felix believe in himself, while Felix slowly coaxes the real prince out of hiding. But can they find the jewels and rescue the most priceless treasures of all: each other?

Book 5: Barely Regal By E. Davies

5
A bratty boy prince needs a firm but fair Daddy.

Prince Renford is a royal brat. Nineteen and last in line for the throne, Wren hates his made-up job: Commander of Roses. Good thing his long-time valet has a firm hand—if only Wren could tempt him to break all palace protocol and use it.

Thom Pierce is sixteen years older. Old enough to know he should ignore his prince’s less-than-subtle flirtation. He’s been burned by a higher-ranked boy before. His job and reputation are at stake if the palace catches a scandal unfolding under their noses.

Wren needs the part of Thom that he’s kept locked away for years. If the young prince wants to be taken as seriously as his older brothers, he has to grow up fast. Thom’s rules could help Wren become the man Thom knows he can be in time for the Royal Ball… or they could attract the very attention that forces them apart forever.

Clean Up On Aisle Mine by Patricia Logan

Clean up on Aisle Mine Amazon 1867-x-2800

A Spy Like Me, Book 1

Former CIA operative, Damon Thorne, is a fixer. He cleans up messes other people make of their lives to forget the wreckage his own has become. Whether it means retrieving a drug addict whose family is being blackmailed or rescuing a furball who’s the subject of a custody dispute, Damon just gets things done.

When the job means kidnapping the wild son of a prominent Senator in an election year, it should come with hazard pay.

From the day Jude Chenoweth was born into wealth and position, his father has groomed him to follow in his footsteps. Jude has other plans. Openly gay and infamous, all he wants to do is live his life, create his art, and never settle down.

Life has a way of kicking butts, even the sexy ones. Thrown together in a situation neither wanted, Damon and Jude must now decide how to move forward. Jude knows something is wrong when he gazes into Damon’s haunted brown eyes and Damon recognizes there’s much more to Jude than the caricature he shows the world.

This might be the beginning of a journey… or an incredibly stupid mistake. Perhaps working together will help them process their own demons. Whatever happens, neither of them believes Damon’s assignments will always come with a heaping helping of bad guys.

Not always… right?

Excerpt:

Valentina scrambled to her feet and launched herself at Damon’s midsection. He caught her easily up in a bearhug as she struggled to get free, flailing arms and kicking legs notwithstanding. She screamed at him as he fastened the handcuffs around both wrists in record time.

“Who are you?” she screamed as he bent and lifted her, throwing her over his shoulder in a fireman’s carry. She oomphed her outrage, leveling a litany of curses in Russian.

“My name is Damon Thorne. I was sent here by your family,” Damon replied in the same language.

“My family?” Valentina shouted. From her tone, she was clearly shocked that he spoke her language but continued protesting as Damon walked down the stairs and began striding across the lot as quickly as he could.

“Your family hired me to take you to rehab,” Damon said in English.

“My family is assholes!” Valentina protested in her broken English. “Put me down! You kidnap me! I call police!”

Damon reached the front fence, wishing he was doing this under the cover of night but realizing there wasn’t much he could do about the situation. If he had to stop and explain himself to a passing policeman, things were going to get ugly. Once again, he cursed the timing on this job. If Trixie had given it to him yesterday afternoon, the abduction could have been over and done with last night. He strode through the open gate to the Taurus and leaned down, setting Valentina on the ground and hanging on to her with one arm as he opened the rear door before tossing her onto the back seat. He quickly grabbed up a length of duct tape and slapped it over her mouth before hooking the handcuffs onto a carabiner system screwed into the floor. This forced Valentina to lie on the floor of the small car as he threw a painter’s tarp over her kicking form.

He really was going to have to invest in a better car for daylight abductions.

Damon quickly slammed the back door, climbed behind the wheel, and locked Glen’s gun into the glove compartment. He glanced around as he started the car. When he saw Glen charging across the lot carrying only a baseball bat, he pulled away from the curb. As Glen reached the sidewalk, Damon glanced into the rearview mirror to check his progress… just in time to see the man’s boxers slide down over his bony hips to his ankles. Glen took two steps forward before the underwear bunched around his ankles stopped his forward progress. He fell face-first onto the sidewalk and let go of the bat. The last thing Damon saw before looking back through the windshield was Glen’s bony white ass as his body went limp.

That’s right, little tweaker. Go to sleep.

Prancing of a Papillon by Tara Lain

 

Prancing of a Papillon for Kindle 1500 x 2500


Fuzzy Love, Book 2

Opposites attracting, billionaires getting kidnapped, a Papillon who’s smarter than you are, and near-death at a dog show….

Jericho Jones is giving up on social life. What social life? Six-foot-five and packed with muscles he barely earned, Jericho looks like an alpha top, when he’s actually a gentle bottom who teaches first grade and lives with his hypochondriac mother. When Jericho’s friends, Finn and Em, suggest he accompany Finn to a dog show as the handler for their Papillon, Batshit, he decides, while he might be the world’s least likely Papillon prancer, he’d be grateful for a new experience and a few days away from Mama.

Jericho’s prepared to take dog handling seriously, but he’s not prepared for the pure lust he feels for wealthy dog owner, Brees Apollonia, a guy totally out of Jericho’s league. But Brees’s family issues make Jericho’s look tame – his father wants to marry him to the daughter of a prospective business partner. When Brees starts being followed by unknown guys, he thinks his father’s trying to scare him and uses it as an excuse to be “protected” by big, hunky Jericho. But pretend gets way out of control, and suddenly the only thing between Brees and possible death is a smart dog with big ears, three intrepid women, and gentle wimp, Jericho Jones.

Special Release Blitz Excerpt:

Jericho walked forward and Batshit fell in beside him like she’d been born there, which was funny, because when he took her for potty walks, she chewed grass, smelled every bush, and barked at all the butterflies. This was clearly something different.

“Increase your speed a little, Jericho.” Ichiko waved a hand.

He sped up and Bat followed right along, tail curled over her back, head up, and a bounce in her step. He gave a little chuckle. This was fun. He almost felt like that word that Finn had used—graceful. Batshit seemed to be enjoying herself too.

“Excellent, Jericho. I’ve never seen Marisol having so much fun. Keep it up.”

A couple of the others stopped to watch him and a little spark of joy and pride warmed Jericho’s chest. I’m doing it. I’m doing it well.

Suddenly, the side gate opened, a flash of black-and-white fur raced into the yard, heading for Ichiko, barking at the top of its lungs, just as Jericho trotted past the gate. The little beast yipped and leaped to the side, Jericho swerved to miss it, tripped himself on Batshit’s leash, and tumbled straight to the ground in a heap of arms and legs.

Ichiko yelled, “Oh my God, Jericho, are you okay?”

“Woof, woof!” Batshit appeared in front of Jericho, licked his face, and barked like a loon as Jericho tried to sort out his extra-long appendages, while the leash wrapped itself around him, tighter and tighter with every move by Batshit.

A soft, smooth voice said, “I’m so sorry. Rodolfo got away from me. May I help you in some way?”

Jericho, who at that moment was lying face downward, but with his hips turned up and legs crossed while the leash bound his arms to his chest, raised his eyes to look at the most gorgeous man he’d ever seen. Medium height and as delicate-featured as a Papillon, his longish, dark hair contrasted with brilliant blue eyes that, at that moment, sparkled. His voice sounded very sincere, but his lips seemed to be fighting to turn up, and oh what lips they were, full and slightly rosy.

Since the guy, soaking wet, couldn’t be half Jericho’s size, Jericho said, “I, uh, better get myself out of this.”

“Woof. Woof.”

“Werf.”

Where a second before he’d had one dog licking him, there were suddenly two, as the little black-and-white critter that turned out to be a Papillon, too, joined the fun of lick the stupid klutz.

Jericho sputtered, “Batshit, come on. Give me a break, please.” The little black-and-white dog ran, and Bat tried to follow, but the leash was wrapped around Jericho’s chest.

The gorgeous man knelt beside him, the smile almost breaking through, and said, “Hold still. I’ll help.” He must have unfastened the collar from Bat, because she ran off, apparently to play with the other Papillon. Beautiful One pulled on the leash until it slid out from under Jericho’s body and he was finally free.

But free to do what? He was still lying in a heap, looking what had to be indescribably foolish in front of a man so stunning he would have made Jericho tongue-tied without benefit of dogs and leash.

The guy stood and extended a hand. Without thinking, Jericho took it and clambered to his feet. The man’s eyes widened as Jericho kept stretching up and up. About halfway to standing, the man’s hand ran out of leverage and he grinned. “Oh my, I didn’t quite realize I’d bitten off more than I can chew.”

The Solution Audio Cover

Single Dad Support Group, Book 3

Length: 9 hrs and 30 mins

Vincent’s past threatens to overthrow his future. The solution? He’s about to find it in the storage closet at his friend’s wedding.


Independent, introverted, and eager to please, all single dad Vincent is expecting when he flies in to attend his friend’s wedding is a good time… not an irresistible older omega who slips into his heart as quickly as he slips into his bed. With a job relocation to the city on the horizon, a relationship isn’t off the table, but there’s a catch.

There’s something about Vincent’s past his prospective lover needs to know—something he’d rather leave behind.

Can he jeopardize his fresh start for a chance at love?

Alone his entire life, all Mal wants is to have a family. The solution? Take matters into his own hands…

Always a babysitter, never a dad, Mal has struggled with issues of self-worth his entire life, and at his age, he’s come to accept that he’s meant to be alone. Eager to have a family he can love, and who will love him back, he decides to pursue IVF and start a family on his own. But when his path intersects Vincent’s, he finds himself questioning whether love really is possible.

Mal is no stranger to the evil in men’s hearts. The only one he can trust is himself, isn’t it? But with kind and thoughtful Vincent, imagining a brighter future is a temptation that might prove too good to resist.

When life reunites their paths in unexpected ways after a sizzling one-night stand, Vincent and Mal are faced with a choice—let their forbidden connection keep them apart, or indulge in love and lust like they’ve never known it before.

The Solution is a 90,000 word contemporary omegaverse mpreg novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, fabulous revenge, an ice-cold shower that will leave you hot beneath the collar, and a unique take on Daddy kink perfect for two men who don’t quite fit the mold.

Excerpt:

“Synecta is a fantastic pharmaceutical company,” Dr. Biernacki said as he turned and proceeded down the hallway, deeper into the clinic. Mal followed him, letting the door close behind him. “I’m always very pleased with the work they do. It’s thorough and detailed, and for the most part, they stick to a stricter code than is mandated by law. It’s very commendable.”

Mal watched Dr. Biernacki’s lab coat swish around his slacks as he walked. Ethics were fine, but Mal was less concerned with them than the study’s results.

“And we’re here.” Dr. Biernacki knocked on the second to last door to the right, then twisted the knob and entered the room. Mal followed him inside, but stopped abruptly a few paces into the room. His eyes had fallen on the doctor hunched over a counter across the room—the one with brown hair that was long on the top and short on the sides, whose body was leanly muscular.

“Your attending physicians,” Dr. Biernacki announced joyfully. “Dr. Peterman, our esteemed pharmakineticist, and Dr. Heaney, the overseeing medical officer.” But Mal couldn’t bring himself to focus on the other doctors in the room—not when his heart was in his throat and his thoughts were running themselves in circles. “And, of course, the man of the hour—the talented reproductive endocrinologist and IVF specialist, Dr. Rhyne.”

Dr. Rhyne’s kind brown eyes met Mal’s. The color drained from his handsome face, and his lips tightened into a thin, emotionless line.

Mal stared back.

Vincent Wasserman, the man Mal had spent his heat with at Alex and Laurence’s wedding, stood no more than six feet away. He was the doctor who would monitor Mal’s progress and retrieve his eggs. The one who’d fertilize them and implant them once all was said and done.

Vincent Wasserman, who it seemed also went by Dr. Rhyne.

Mal’s knees went weak.

The man who’d called him Daddy was going to make him one.

The Problem by Piper Scott

Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo

51ZflznkPYL._SL500_

Single Dads Support Group, Book 1

Length: 8 hrs and 27 mins

Laurence’s new lover is half his age. The problem? His relationship is about to make his life a lot more complicated…

Successful, sensible, and settled in his ways, single dad Laurence isn’t looking for love when he runs into the young man who sweeps him off his feet… and onto his knees. With an upcoming raise on the line and a son to care for, he can’t let an unconventional relationship jeopardize the future of his family. He’s a parent first and a lover second, and that’s the way it has to be.

Right?

The only thing Alex loves more than older men is being filthy with them. The problem? Sometimes, it backfires in the worst ways.

Up-and-coming painter Alex is broken in ways others can’t see, and he copes with the pain by drowning himself in experience—especially experienced men. But when he crosses paths with Laurence, he finds himself drawn down an avenue of life he’s sworn he’ll never visit again.

Men are meant to be disposable, and Laurence is only supposed to be a hookup… so why does Alex feel so safe whenever he’s around?

When a matter of concealed identity threatens Laurence and Alex’s bond, they have a choice—rise above the forces that seek to divide them and find happiness with each other, or let their problems grow too great to conquer.

The Problem is an 81,000 word contemporary omegaverse mpreg novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, the naughtiest lace panties you’ll ever read about, and the gradual development of a relationship between a Daddy and his boy.

The Proposal by Piper Scott

Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo

51bv0FgwjrL._SL500_


Single Dad Support Group, Book 2

Length: 7 hrs and 22 mins

After four years spent apart, Aaron is on his way home to marry the love of his life—his best friend. The proposal? It’s about to end in disaster.

Dedicated, determined, and head-over-heels in love, Aaron is ready to settle down with the man of his dreams—his best friend, Gage. With a prestigious degree under his belt, a promising career ahead of him, and a loving boyfriend to pamper and spoil for the rest of their lives, the future is brighter than it’s ever been.

Isn’t it?

The lie Gage has been living for the last four years is about to fall apart, and there’s only one way he can see himself holding it together. The proposal? It’s everything he’s ever wanted, but something he might never be able to have…

When the steamiest summer of Gage’s life leaves him pregnant with Aaron’s child, Gage knows what he has to do. He’s made Aaron a promise, and the future of their family depends on it.

Forced to keep his son a secret from everyone—even Aaron—Gage does whatever it takes in order to keep a roof over their heads. But when his child gets sick and Gage can’t afford medical treatment, he has a difficult choice to make.

How far will he go to keep his future family together?

When an unexpected reunion brings Aaron and Gage back together, they’re faced with a choice: overcome the obstacles standing in their way to becoming a happy family, or accept that the proposal they’ve both been dreaming of is never going to happen.

The Proposal is a 70,000 word contemporary omegaverse mpreg novel featuring a quirky group of single dads, a live stream you’re never going to forget, pretty pearls in naughty places, and a love that neither time nor distance can tear apart.

Back to You by Kiska Gray

back to you ebook-2

I’m in love with Dane Fisher.

Not only is he my best friend, but he’s the one to pick up the broken pieces when my life falls apart. We’re partners-in-crime. He’s the peanut butter to my jelly, and I’ve loved him for as long as I can remember.

But he can never find out. It would kill me to lose him.

And then I lose him anyway.

Yet, the universe has a way of bringing us together again—and this time, I’m not giving up on us.

It will always come back to him…

Universal Link

Excerpt:

“Thanks for tonight,” I said, turning to him. “It was really—”

Like a heat-seeking missile, Dane’s lips crushed against mine. I groaned. His hand found the back of my neck. Mine were already fisted in his leather jacket. Dragging him closer, I inhaled the spicy mint aroma on Dane’s breath, then parted my lips to welcome him in. We weren’t clueless kids anymore. That much was obvious by the way his mouth plundered mine.

Yes, yes, yes.

I forgot how to breathe. I forgot everything but the warm, familiar taste of Dane as we shared the same space, one soul with two heartbeats. The world kept turning, but we were frozen in this moment. Wrapped up in each other. Desperate to make up for lost time.

When we finally broke apart, our chests were heaving. My heart was doing the tango, and I could see his pulse beating rapidly in his throat. His eyes sparked with heat. It did all sorts of things to my nether regions. I really wanted to climb on top of him, grind myself against him, and kiss him until my lips were bruised and we were both sweaty and spent.

Instead, I settled on a rather chaste peck on the lips. His eyes widened. He knew I was teasing him, so I smirked and walked my fingers up his chest. “Good things come to those who wait. Call me,” I said before letting myself out. Dane honked the horn. I exhaled a laugh and flipped him the bird.

I’d only been inside long enough to shuck my coat and boots and grab a bottle of water from the fridge, when my phone went off. I knew it was Dane before I ever pulled it out of my pocket. 

“What? Miss me already?”

“Come out to lunch with me tomorrow,” he said, still sounding a little breathless. “I’ll bring my Switch and we can table-top Smash Ultimate. What do you say?”

My face hurt from grinning so big. “I dunno…”

“Say yes.”

Pull my leg, why dont you?

“Yes,” I agreed. “I’d like that.”

“Good.”

Excerpt:

Lucas nodded and stood, ready to follow Nick just about anywhere. The guy was hot, with his husky voice and his muscular arms, and his confidence was magnetic, drawing Lucas in. The way he’d touched Lucas’s thigh made his whole body scream out for more. Lucas didn’t see any red flags or hear any warning bells. He’d had a handful of hookups with varying degrees of satisfaction, though usually not with strangers. Something about this guy felt right. And just like moving to LA, just like taking off to find the bar, when something felt right, Lucas felt compelled to go with it.

Outside of the bar, Nick led the way, guiding Lucas several blocks farther into the city. They soon arrived at a hotel that was … well, not what Lucas had expected. He’d figured Nick would guide him to a cheap, anonymous motel with questionable cleanliness. That’s what usually happened with his one-night stands, right? Instead, they’d arrived at a shiny new building, several stories high, the front modern glass and metal, everything very angular. Lucas raised his eyebrows, mentally reassessing the situation. Who are you, Nick, to take a stranger to such a nice hotel for a hook-up?

Nick didn’t hesitate when they entered the brightly lit lobby. He led Lucas over to the elevator and hit the button firmly. The moment they were inside, Nick was on Lucas, placing his strong hands on either side of Lucas’s face. He pressed their bodies together and then their mouths. He had Lucas pinned against the wall, and Lucas’s heart pounded, his dick getting harder with every passing second. Nick’s hands gripped him firmly, rough fingers stroking his jawline as his hot mouth captured Lucas’s, tasting of gin.

They kissed frantically, Lucas tugging at Nick’s clothes, already desperate for the feel of skin, which he was rewarded with briefly before the elevator dinged softly and the doors slid open. Nick pulled away, cleared his throat, and adjusted his shirt, standing straighter in an effort to look composed. Lucas couldn’t help but grin. Luckily, there was nobody waiting to board.

Nick grabbed Lucas’s hand. “This way.” The hall branched in several directions and Nick put a hand on Lucas’s lower back. The touch sent sparks up Lucas’s spine as Nick guided Lucas to a room a few doors down.

The beep of the door lock sent a twist through Lucas’s stomach and he licked his lips to moisten his suddenly dry mouth. I’m really doing this—hooking up with a sexy stranger my first night in LA. He fought to suppress a bubble of laughter. What a cliché.

But really, Nick was sexy. As they entered the room, the dimly lit lamp in the corner illuminated Nick’s strong, square jaw and the high cheekbones that made him look like a model. Broad shoulders stretched his t-shirt to its limits. Lucas could hardly wait to be wrapped in Nick’s muscular arms.

Rosavia Royals, Book 2

RR-2-ReignorShine-Welch-Medium

A secret prince needs: a lost tourist to save.

Prince Cassander is on vacation from his overdeveloped sense of duty. While hiding out as simply ‘Cas’ in the Rosavian capital, he rescues a gorgeous, distressed American tourist. Matty has no idea that Cas is second in line to the throne. And with only two weeks together to explore the sparks between them, he doesn’t need to ever find out.

New Yorker Matty Doyle is a fish out of water, taking care of his niece and mending his broken heart. When Cas rescues him, the handsome stranger coaxes Matty out of his shell and he throws caution to the wind. Nobody knows him here. Would it hurt to live a little for once?

But a prince can’t stay secret in his own country for long. Cas would give anything to protect Matty from reality, but how can this fantasy together continue when they belong in different worlds?

Exclusive from Helen & the Inspirations behind her Prince:

Reign or Shine


How did you become a part of this project/world?

Fun fact! The covers came first! Our incredible designer, AngstyG, did a pre-mades sale, and our princes were the pièce de résistance. Ed and I just happened to be online at the right time, and as soon as I saw them, I started screaming at him over messenger that we HAD TO HAVE THEM lol. We had loved working on Hidden Creek so much, but after 24 books we knew that we’d said goodbye to Texas. Suddenly, a chance to create a brand new shared universe dropped into our laps, and there wasn’t even a moment of hesitation.

After that, I felt like we were assembling the Avengers! We reached out to a variety of authors and editors, and the stars aligned to give us the incredible line up we have today. We used what we’d learned from Hidden Creek and I know our shared universe is better than ever. We all beta read each other’s books as we worked, and I swear to you Rosavia is a real place now that I want to go on holiday!!

 

Where did your story’s inspiration come from?

I am a huge fan of cheesy romantic films – I wish we had the Hallmark channel in the UK!! I feel like I was heavily influenced by films like The Princess Diaries, A Crown For Christmas, The Princess Switch etc… The idea of the American tourist and the secret prince popped immediately into my mind and I knew it would be so fun and fluffy to write! I also knew early on that these guys needed to save each other from their own pasts, and it was obvious that a holiday romance would soon blossom into a tender love before Matty had a chance to get back on that plane to New York!

 

How did you create your Prince?

As the covers were already made, we got a sense of who all the princes would be very quickly. The rebel heir, the secret spy, and the bratty baby all came right away, and Throne Together just had to be two princes. So that left Book #2, and I knew that was Cassander and had to be mine. With those explosive personalities all around him, I figured Cas was the long-suffering responsible one, trying to keep the family together. He compares himself to Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice at one point, and I think I was channeling a lot of my favourite classic literary heroine into him. But by taking a vacation from his real life at the start of the book, he soon realizes what he craves is to love and be loved, to have something that just his, not for crown or country. That’s where Matty came in! I loved the dynamic between these two, and how they end up saving each other. They have a very beautiful, gentle relationship that was a joy to capture.

Book 1: Up for Heir By Stella Starling

 

1

 

A playboy heir needs: a man to marry, right now.

After spending half his life dodging his duty to the crown, the rebel heir to the Rosavian throne has been told in no uncertain terms that it’s time to settle down. Crown Prince Leopold has one month and a vetted list of suitable princesses, and he will announce his engagement during Rosavia’s Royal Ball. But Leo’s got his own ideas about what really suits him…

Royal Librarian Edvin Blom is good at not attracting attention. Shy and self-conscious of his stutter, he’s used to being overlooked and more than happy to stay in the background. At least, until the crown prince with a wild reputation shows up at the library’s new opening and decides to flirt with Edvin’s sister…

Edvin isn’t at all what Leo thought he wanted, but turns out to be everything he can’t stay away from. Edvin’s been burned by falling for someone out of his league before, though. And believing that Leo has really fallen for him? While Edvin’s drowning in his own doubts and insecurities, that might prove impossible… unless love gives them both a reason to come up for air.

Book 3: Throne Together By Zoe Dawn

A pining prince needs: a second chance at love.

Prince Julius has only ever wanted one man. Raised alongside Prince Dante of Thedes, the two were inseparable until their unspoken mutual attraction ignited into a single passionate encounter. Convinced that it ruined their friendship, Julius retreated to his duties in Rosavia, where he daydreams of another chance to win Dante’s heart.

After four years apart, fate brings Prince Julius back to Thedes. He offers Dante a coveted invitation: return to the Rosavian palace for ten days, and be his plus-one to the Royal Ball of the century. Before long, they realize one night of passion wasn’t enough, and they can’t imagine losing each other again.

As the clock ticks down to the ball, Julius catches wind of Dante’s family meddling, and he must decide if their feelings are real or if they’ve both been played. Were they always meant for each other, or is it all an illusion that will melt away at midnight?

Book 4: In His Court By Max Rowan

A spy prince needs: a man who sees through his disguise.

Prince Benedict is not what he seems. His image as a lazy playboy is carefully constructed to hide the truth. Trained since childhood to become Rosavia’s top spy, he spends his life in disguise—and danger—to protect his country. Nobody sees the loneliness in his heart.

Felix Wright is a genius with four degrees, no real-world experience, and a top-secret job… and he’s never even been kissed. A lifetime of being alienated for his most valuable assets has left him reluctant to trust the charming prince who thrusts him into fieldwork for the very first time.

When the Crown Jewels are stolen two weeks before the royal ball, it’s their job to save the country’s reputation. Benedict helps Felix believe in himself, while Felix slowly coaxes the real prince out of hiding. But can they find the jewels and rescue the most priceless treasures of all: each other?

Book 5: Barely Regal By E. Davies

A bratty boy prince needs: a firm but fair Daddy.

Prince Renford is a royal brat. Nineteen and last in line for the throne, Wren hates his made-up job: Commander of Roses. Good thing his long-time valet has a firm hand—if only Wren could tempt him to break all palace protocol and use it.

Thom Pierce is sixteen years older. Old enough to know he should ignore his prince’s less-than-subtle flirtation. He’s been burned by a higher-ranked boy before. His job and reputation are at stake if the palace catches a scandal unfolding under their noses.

Wren needs the part of Thom that he’s kept locked away for years. If the young prince wants to be taken as seriously as his older brothers, he has to grow up fast. Thom’s rules could help Wren become the man Thom knows he can be in time for the Royal Ball… or they could attract the very attention that forces them apart forever.

Heart2Heart: A Charity Anthology, Volume 4

Copy of Heart2Heart-Anthology-4-Medum

A Paranormal Collection Supporting LGBT Charity

This collection will be available for only 90 days before it’s gone forever.

Once upon a time, a bunch of authors wondered…
Why should Heart2Heart – the phenomenally successful dating app – only work its magic in the human world when lonely lycans, dejected dragons, and jilted jackalopes need love, too?

In this new paranormal universe, mages and shifters, vampires, psychics, and even humans, will reach out to Heart2Heart podcast host Gene E. Del’Amp for help finding a magical match… and they just might find that talking about their woes helps their wishes come true.

Eighteen of your favorite gay romance authors have come together to bring you brand-new paranormal and urban fantasy stories inspired by reader suggestions!

Once again, all proceeds from this collection will go to the authors’ favorite LGBTQ charities, to ensure that love in all its forms will be celebrated and protected every single day of the year!

What is Heart2Heart?

H2H is a passion project that began as nothing more than a “what if” said among friends. Since then, across three volumes and with the involvement of twenty-six incredible authors of gay romance, the Heart2Heart anthologies have raised over $80k for LGBTQ charities around the world.

Because Heart2Heart is a charity project, all of the work involved in creating and promoting each volume is donated. From the author’s creative work, to the editing and formatting, to cover design and promotion, all donation efforts by the Heart2Heart team contribute to the project’s ability to donate as much as possible to the chosen charities for each volume.

Heart2Heart is a unique anthology project in the way each story is brand new content that’s inspired by reader suggestions and fits within an overall theme. H2H volume 4 is no exception. In December 2019 we received more than 350 suggestions from readers that our authors then used to inspire their characters and the wishes that would come true thanks to the Heart2Heart podcast.

To shake things up with this new collection, the decision was made to bring together some of the best and brightest authors of paranormal and urban fantasy gay romance for an alternate reality experience. Working within the classic elements of shifters, vampires, mages, and more, we’re excited to present sixteen brand new stories with all of the humor, feels, and spice you would expect from Heart2Heart.

 


A Special Excerpt from the opening and closing Heart2Heart Story by Jeff Adams & Will Knauss:


Story title: A Caller from Grand Rapids

A brief description of your story: Former hockey player Noah McCarthy has a good life in Grand Rapids as a newspaper reporter. His alter ego, Gene E. Del’Amp is the host of the popular podcast Wish of Your Heart. Noah enjoys helping humans, lycans, vampires, witches and anyone else with a good wish. What happens if the genie is suddenly the subject of a wish?  


Excerpt:

Noah

“Okay, ready to head into the last segment?” I asked my producer slash assistant Marc.

Recording the podcast was my favorite part of the week because I got to unleash a side of me I kept tucked away the rest of the time. Wish of Your Heart had developed a good, and still growing, following since it premiered just over a year ago. The show filled a niche for humans and those with some kind of extra talent to talk out their fears and hopes about making a connection. Offering your heart to someone was never easy, even between two humans. But it could be more daunting if you were matching between different shifter species or a vampire with a human or… any other combination. Wrapping up romantic desires into a wish seemed to work for those who called in. 

Listeners really loved—or really hated, there was no middle ground—the host I created with Gene E. Del’Amp. The name was ridiculous as was the unidentifiable European-esque accent I used for him. All of that was deliberate because I didn’t want anyone to figure out that Gene and I, former pro hockey player Noah McCarthy, were the same person. That would cause far more trouble than it’s worth. Only Marc knew my secret identity.

“Let’s do it,” I said, still sounding like myself. I only pulled Gene out when we were actually recording.

“And we’re back recording in three, two, one.” Marc hit a button on his computer and the voicemail played in my headphones.

“Hi. This is Thomas. So, um, here’s the thing, Gene, I’ve fallen for the guy I work with. I know it’s a mistake. You’re not supposed to be into the boss. And I really love my job, so I don’t want to fuck it up. What people don’t know is the boss is super sweet. He’s got a facade that’s snarky, but it’s all show. We work closely, and it’s a great relationship. I know he’s gay. Hell, we’ve even shared stories about guys we’ve dated.

“I’ve known him for over a year now, and I think we’d be good together. Every now and then, I’ll see a glint in his eye, like when I bring him his favorite latte or we talk about something we both like. It’s true, we even have a couple of shared hobbies. I wish I had the balls to ask him. What do you think, Gene? Can you grant me this so I take the leap? I’m willing to risk the job. I know you hate workplace relationships because of all the extra variables, but I listen all the time and sometimes wishes on the job come true.”

“Wow, Marc, you didn’t hold back for the last call, did you?” I spoke into the mic as Gene. Across the desk, Marc’s eyes danced with mischief along with a little something I couldn’t identify. He knew how to pick good voicemails. This one had potential workplace drama, a boss that might be too much of a friend, and the amount of pining in the voice that listeners would eat up. “You should see the look he’s giving me right now, waiting to see what I’m going to say.”

“Look? What look?” Marc added a smirk, one that even reflected in the tone of his voice. “I just want you to answer so we can wrap this thing up.”

What are your thoughts on being part of Heart2Heart volume 4? 
After reading the stories in the previous three volumes, it was great to be asked to his particular cool kids’ table. Of course, since we have a podcast, it was a lot of fun writing the podcaster’s story.

Founded in 2004 by Dr. André P.

🌈 – QMUNITY (local services, BC)

“A non-profit organization based in Vancouver, BC that works to improve queer, trans, and Two-Spirit lives.

F-Word Series, Book 5

Agoraphobe Jaden has barely left the house in years. Being dragged to a gay bar by his big brother to bid on a blind date is not his idea of a good time. But then the unthinkable happens: he wins. Sure, he was just about ready to push his boundaries–but on his own time. Not with a probably-gorgeous stranger watching his every move.

Henry hasn’t been on a date in the last year–ever since he finished with lower surgery. He works as a nature guide now in the great outdoors, and his new life suits him just fine. Just one thing’s missing: a man to share it with. Jaden is sweet, accepting, yet terrified by everything about the date that isn’t Henry. But he sees something in Jaden–in his courage for showing up, and his hope and vulnerability along the way.

Back home, when he’s in Denver in between guiding trips, Henry quickly becomes a staple in Jaden’s home. With Jaden’s understanding, Henry grows confident in his own skin. And with Henry’s support, the walls of Jaden’s sheltered life open up. But every step forward seems like it comes with two steps back. Can they take a deep breath and step into the wide open future–together?

This novel is based on “Denver” — a short story from the Heart2Heart 2 anthology. It has been revised and significantly expanded. It is now a standalone gay romance novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger.

Excerpt:

“Hi yourself,” Henry answered, his voice a low, smooth shiver straight to Jaden’s toes. Then he straightened up and smiled, hefting the bags. “I have Chinese. And I bought groceries on the way, too. Hope you don’t mind.”

Oh, God. Jaden’s cheeks burned with surprise as he opened his mouth and failed to come up with words. When he did, he squeaked and cleared his throat. “Um—no. I mean, thank you. That’s really… super sweet of you.”

Henry chuckled softly. “It’s my pleasure.” The distinctive smell of fried rice made Jaden’s stomach grumble again. He blushed, but Henry just laughed. “Shall we eat?”

“Let’s,” Jaden agreed. He beamed and led Henry to the kitchen to grab plates and utensils.

He took the grocery bags from him and then hesitated, spotting the red mark on Henry’s hand. “Are you okay?”

“Oh, that? I’m fine,” Henry said with a laugh and kissed Jaden’s cheek. “Thanks. I’ll get these to the table.”

Watching Henry covertly check out the place made Jaden see it with fresh eyes—as much as he could when he knew every inch of the apartment better than anywhere else.

It was cozy, but the view was gorgeous. Green parkland rolled into hills and then the mountains that always hovered on the edge of the Denver consciousness. It more than made up for the cramped living room space.

Jaden dipped into the kitchen, which was tucked away in an alcove off the living room, to put away groceries. He found himself smiling at Henry’s choices. He’d filled one bag with fresh veggies and a bottle of juice, and another with milk, butter, cheese, and pasta. The third had eggs, bacon, and chicken breasts.

Oh, man. There was easily enough for a week, but Henry hadn’t broken the bank on gourmet groceries, either. It told Jaden so much about Henry: he was sensible and frugal, exactly the sort of practical man he wanted in his life.

Okay, stop mooning over cheddar cheese and get the damn plates, Jaden told himself, grinning and shaking his head.

When he got to the table and set down the plates and utensils, Henry already had the cartons arranged and open in the middle of the table. He dropped into his seat and grinned as Jaden sat, too. “Come on, dish up what you want.”

“But what I want isn’t on the menu.” Jaden’s eyes sparkled as he beamed over the table at Henry, his heart already flip-flopping with the tension in the room between them.

One sweet kiss was nice. But he wanted a lot more. The last few nights, he’d missed Henry’s company—to a ridiculous degree, considering they’d only ever spent that one night together.

Henry grinned back at him and held his gaze. “I haven’t shown you the dessert menu.”
