A witch, a human, and a werewolf. Three men connected by love, but two of them have never met, until now.

After losing his family and coven six years ago, Felix was finally happy again. He has a job he‘s good at, two boyfriends who love him, friends, and a place to call home. That is, until a mysterious stranger brings a job into the Assassins Guild where he and his lover, Ryder, work.

On paper the job is simple, take out the sorcerer who heads the most powerful dark magic church in the country. But magic is never simple, and Ryder and Felix enlist the help of a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, including Felix’s other boyfriend Luka, to complete the job before time runs out.

Will Luka and Ryder see what Felix has always suspected? And more importantly, will they be able to accept it, and each other?

Special Cover Reveal Excerpt:

Luka was confused when it came to Ryder. He’d never had a problem with Ryder per se. He just hadn’t understood how Felix could feel so connected to someone who was part of the same community that oppressed and hunted them. But now that he’d met him, he could tell Ryder wasn’t like other citizens.

That morning, when Ryder had walked into Felix’s apartment, it had taken everything inside him to not outwardly react to Ryder’s presence. The man was beautiful but in a rugged way. Felix was beautiful with his nearly elfin features and soft skin and smaller body. Ryder was pretty much the opposite, although his skin had been soft when he’d shaken the other man’s hand. And the little arcs of electricity that detonated against his flesh as they’d touched had been unsettling, to say the least.

He’d also had the strangest urges to reach out and offer Ryder physical comfort as they’d spent the morning planning. He’d hated seeing the other man struggle, and instead of feeling jealousy or envy when Felix had touched and caressed Ryder in an attempt to soothe him, he’d been glad Ryder had someone, and a little sad that he couldn’t do the same.

It was madness. He wasn’t a tactile person. He didn’t touch anyone unless he was completely comfortable with them and trusted them. Hell, he’d waited two years with Felix before moving from their first kiss to when they’d lost their virginities to each other. He trusted Felix with his life, had since he was a kid, but it had still taken time for him to be able to accept that Felix wanted his touch.

“It’s okay.” Felix gave Ryder’s arm a comforting squeeze. “We’re not going to let you down.”

“He’s right, man.” Zane nodded. “Rivers is going down today.”

“We’ve got this,” Luka added, his voice rough.

He really needed to get his head in the game and stop thinking about whatever the hell was going on with him when it came to Ryder. They had a job to do. Then all this would be over, and he could go back to his solitary life with his pack and Felix.

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:

“Have you heard from your father?” Cooper’s father was Brad’s campaign manager and had been since he started out in California politics over twenty years ago.

Cooper’s face lost its smile immediately as he nodded. “I did. He says the family is expecting you to play much more of a role in the campaign as we draw closer to November. Next week there’s supposed to be an interview after his campaign rally in Sacramento.”

Jude’s lips thinned. If there was one thing he could point to that he hated more than anything in this world, it was playing a role in his father’s political campaigns.

“Right. I’m certain Brad’s republican colleagues would just love it if I showed up on stage with my father and told them what I really think of their platform. Holt should do the interview.”

Cooper popped another handful of edamame into his mouth, chewing. He swallowed and grinned at him. “The interview is with the leader of the Log Cabin Republicans. They want an idea of the republican platform from a gay man’s point of view.”

Jude’s jaw dropped open and he folded his arms. “Like hell! Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean I’m going to kowtow to those guys.”

Cooper grinned wider. “Look at it this way. You’re like a zoo animal. The gay son of a republican senator from a Liberal state. Who knew you’d be popular enough to be interviewed by Sally Sly? Just think of the “cause”, Jude.” Cooper batted his eyelashes in a pleading way that made Jude burst out laughing.

“Fuck Sally Sly. I’m not sitting in a room with that republican shrew for one minute. Did you see her article on marriage equality before SCOTUS ruled on Obergefell v. Hodges? Her views are just short of Fascist.”

“Maybe an interview with Sally Sly will have its benefits,” Cooper said with a little shrug. “I’ll tell dad to write into the contract that you like getting pegged. Maybe you’ll enjoy a strap-on. You’ll never know until you try, babe.”

Jude was still laughing when the waitress walked over with a tray and began setting down the obscene number of rolls that Cooper had ordered. He accepted his own volcano roll and seafood salad, leaning over to take a long whiff of it. It smelled lovely and his own stomach rumbled the moment he caught the delicious scent. They both dug into their food and ate for a few minutes before Jude brought the subject up again.

“Your dad asked you to tell me about it, right? My father was too afraid to ask me himself?” Jude pinned Cooper with a hard stare and his best friend shrugged.

Winsford Green Stories, Book 2

Arthur Fitch clawed his way out of the violence and poverty of the slums of London to become a valet to the aristocracy. His ambition to secure a higher position led him to a disastrous appointment with a cold, brutal man, and when things come to a head, Arthur is forced to flee into a snowstorm to find safety.

Joseph Wilkinson is the Winsford Green blacksmith. He has a good life, good friends, owns a thriving business, but at the end of the day when he goes home, loneliness consumes him. When he stumbles upon a small man determinedly trudging through the snowstorm, he invites him into his home to shelter.

Arthur Fitch is older, smart-mouthed, and as prickly as hell. But, as Joe peels back the layers, he discovers a warm, funny, vulnerable man whose tastes in the bedchamber leave Joe gasping and desperate for more. Trouble is, having found the real Arthur Fitch, how can he convince him that life in a small town can be infinitely better than working for an Earl? That love really is possible for people like them? Particularly when Arthur’s past catches up with him in horrifying fashion.

Excerpt:

Arthur Fitch drifted into awareness slowly. He was warm. Deliciously warm. He rubbed his face against the pillow, sighed, and the warm body behind him shifted with him. He smiled and hummed happily as he eased his way up through the layers of sleep. When he moved, he groaned. Every part of him seemed to ache. Including his head. He stretched out his legs and the body behind him moved again.

Arthur froze. Body? Body behind him? Body in bed with him…?

His eyes shot open, blinking rapidly. Where in God’s name was he? It was a completely unfamiliar room, unfamiliar bed, and … and … he swallowed and turned his head to the side. A completely unfamiliar man. Who, at that moment, opened outrageously blue eyes and looked at him.

Arthur let out a wild yell and leaped from the bed.

“Who the hell are you?” he demanded as he stumbled to his feet. His legs were like water. He grabbed his swimming head with one hand and clutched at the bed post with another as he almost overbalanced.

His blue-eyed bed companion sat up. Dear… sweet …. God. He was magnificent. Huge, muscled shoulders. Pronounced collar bones peeping through the open neck of his night shirt. Shaggy hair the colour of autumn, and an untamed beard.

And he was young.

The man threw back the covers and stood on the opposite side of the bed. “Don’t you remember?” His voice was deep, husky rumble.

“Remember what?” His own voice had become a shriek. “What did you do to me?”

The man took a step back, wariness edging into his blue gaze. Christ, they were so blue.

“I didn’t do anything. I rescued you from the snow.”

Arthur looked around with his mouth open. He was used to being surrounded by the finest things money could buy. Working with the most respected and envied men of the upper ten thousand. Why the hell was he in some poky, rustic, shabby … Did that man have an erection? He stared at the man’s groin. There was definitely some stirring visible. He looked at him and raised a quelling brow. The man flushed, put a hand over himself, and glared at him. Dark brows pulling down.

“You walked from the Abbey in the snow. I brought you in and warmed you up. That’s all. Don’t flatter yourself.”

“My good man, I …” Arthur began, at his most haughty, then hesitated. Memories crowded in. Snow. Cold. More snow and so cold he thought he might die. He held onto his head as it all came flooding back. The giant had indeed saved him from the snow and probably saved his life.

He cleared his throat.

Dances Long Forgotten

Dances Cover


On Christmas Eve, Dylan, the man of James Pell-Charnley’s dreams, is on the point of walking out. Then they hear the faint strains of a waltz in the library of the empty abbey. The music is said to be heard only by those truly in love, and it gives James the courage to tell Dylan the story.

In December 1841, Lord Hugo Pell-Charnley is in a terrible mess. The youngest son of the late Marquis, youngest brother of the incumbent, never felt to fit. When his life comes crashing down, and his life and his family are threatened, he is forced to face his elder brother and confess his deepest secret. When he arrives at Winsford Abbey he finds he must also confront the shame from his past in the form of Lyndon Cross. The boy he’d loved but betrayed in school.

As they clear the ghosts from the past, they dance in each other’s arms in the library to the soft strains of the waltz, but long buried secrets threaten to destroy their happiness.
Two hundred years later, can those dances long forgotten give James and Dylan the courage to hold on to love?

About the Author:

My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal. I decided to write gay romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre, so am really thrilled to have my work published here. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare moment finds me writing or reading. I live in the north west of England with my husband who thinks that I live in two worlds. The real world and in the world in my head…he probably has a point!

A Paranormal Collection Supporting LGBT Charity

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

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!

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 Pandora Pine’s Heart2Heart Story “A Caller From Boston“:

 

A brief description of your story
A man wishing for true love bumps into a blind psychic.

~~~

Excerpt:

When I reached for the handle to the door, something very large and hard slammed into me. “Oof!” I grunted, feeling my body bounce off whatever hit me. Everything happened in slow motion. My arms stretched forward to cushion the fall my brain knew was coming. They were no use against the ice-cold concrete of the sidewalk. The side of my face hit the ground. I was trying to get my bearings when something large landed on my back.

“Oh, Jesus Christ! I’m so sorry!” a man’s voice cried out. “Here, let me help you.”

Havoc yelped and hovered over me, his doggie breath washing my face with the odor of rawhide and something foul I didn’t want identified. With raw hands I had a feeling were bloody, I pushed myself up to my knees.

“I’ve got you. Here I am acting like the king of the world, talking on my phone and not watching where I’m going.” The clumsy stranger took a ragged breath. “Oh my God, you’re blind.”

Did I forget to mention I’m blind? My bad. Usually, it’s the first thing people notice about me, what with the dark sunglasses, and my service dog. Mr. King of the World must have been so busy with his call, he hadn’t seen me.

Large hands enveloped my own. My entire body jolted with the contact. Electricity skittered down my spine, fanning out to the rest of my body. My slumbering cock woke with a vengeance, snaking up my lower abdomen. “Yeah, I’m blind, thanks for—”

Nausea roiled through my stomach. I gripped the stranger’s hand tighter and held on for the ride.

In my mind’s eye, I saw Mr. King of the World. He was tall and thin like a redwood. Christ, no wonder he’d slammed into me. I’m five foot five wearing a good pair of shoes. This guy had to be a foot taller than me and then some. His green eyes were set off by his auburn hair and scraggly beard, which sent another bolt of electricity through my body. Oh, the way his scruff would feel against my thighs as he sucked my cock. Sweet Jesus in heels.

The last thing I saw was an image of the genie from Aladdin. Shit, that had been my favorite movie as a child. I had such a crush on him with his larger-than-life personality. In this context, it made absolutely no sense.

“Hey? Hey? Are you okay?” His voice sounded underwater. My hearing wasn’t usually affected when I was having one of my psychic visions.

Did I also forget to mention in addition to my golden voice, and being blind, I’m also psychic? My bad again. This wasn’t my day. “I think so.” The remnants of my sight faded along with the vision. I was only able to see when my gift kicked into gear. The way it worked was kind of messed up, but I’d learned to live with it over the years.

~~~

What are your thoughts on being part of Heart2Heart volume 4? 
It’s an honor to be part of a project raising money for LGBT charities. I’m excited to bring my brand of magic to the paranormal edition.

His Ranch Hand by Deanna Wadsworth

Releasing: August 17th

His Ranch Hand_color

Western Passions, Book 1

Cowboys don’t cry.

West of the Pecos, if a man shows a vulnerable side, his last glimpse of this life might be at the end of a barrel.

Cowboy and drifter, Myron Poste shrouds his life in mystery, carefully following a strict code to stay alive. Fellow ranch hand Cade Buchanan is big, hairy, and strong—not the sort of man to trifle with.

One fateful night while driving a herd of Longhorns north to Santa Fe, Cade confronts Myron. With the swiftness of a West Texas wind, desire seizes control and a passionate affair begins. Pride has always held Myron back, but he can no longer deny his submissive nature when Cade gives him just what he craves—pure, lustful dominance.

When the drive ends, they must part ways. Will the memories of their untamed passion under the big Texas sky be powerful enough to reunite them?

Pre-Order: Universal Link

kiss me sweetly


Special Cover Reveal Excerpt:

“Is this what you really want?” Myron asked.

“Yes,” Cade insisted. “I want you to come live with me, build a home and a life with me. We could have a chance there, like you said. No one will bother us if we’re careful.”

“You can’t know that.” Myron wanted to give in to this dream, but there were realities, and things he needed written in stone before he let his mind accept this, though he feared his heart already had. “What if someone finds out?”

“Then we head to north or father west if we have to. We’ll protect each other.”

The determination in Cade’s tone gave him pause. “You won’t cut and run on me?”

“I don’t think so,” Cade said honestly. “At least, I don’t wanna. But we can’t predict the future. You might cut and run on me.”

Myron grabbed his hand. “Never. I might’ve been planning to get an itch scratched, but I wasn’t going to give away a kiss.”

“You wasn’t?”

“No.” He glanced around before whispering, “Those are all yours.”

Cade’s gaze locked on Myron’s lips, his breathing as heavy as Myron’s groin. He stepped closer, and Myron clung to his squeezing hand. “All mine.”

Myron trembled from the intensity in his expression. “I want to believe you, but this is dangerous for my heart. After everything…”

“I won’t hurt you.”

Myron let out a weary sigh. “You already have and now… well?” He studied his boots, not releasing his hand, but disliking how torn up he felt inside. Laying his heart open was much harder than giving away his body. “You’ve made a habit of changing your mind on me. I can’t go through that again, not after you’ve promised me a dream. If you mean this, that you want to build a life with me, then you can’t go back on your word, Buchanan. I can’t go through this heartache again.”

Cade cupped his cheek, and Myron knew he would never tire of such tender touches. “I can’t deny I still got doubts and worries in my head. All I can do is promise to work on quieting them every day. ’Cause even though I’m afraid of what could happen, I want you in my life, Myron. I don’t ever wanna lose you again. My heart’s been achin’ too.”

Myron closed his eyes and melted into the moment, Cade’s touch the only thing keeping him upright. Before—when he doubted men could ever share more than lust—he’d told himself men loving each other had to be fiction. A fanciful notion. Now he realized he’d convinced himself of that because he never thought he’d get to savor the devotion and love of another man.

Yet now, against all odds, Cade wanted him, wanted to build a life together.

Cade stroked Myron’s freshly shaven face with his thumb until Myron opened his eyes. He was so close his eyes crossed a little looking at him. Cade offered an encouraging smile, caressing his jaw. “Maybe we should go up to the loft. Someone could come by.”

Myron nodded, the risk of discovery more powerful than his need to have all Cade’s intentions laid bare just then. “Yes, let’s.”

They extinguished the lantern, and then gathered his bedroll and climbed the ladder to the hayloft. He wondered if and hoped Cade was looking at his ass as he climbed up in front of him. When they reached the top, Cade smartly pulled the ladder up with them.

You’re a fool, Poste. He’s saying everything you want to hear, but he’ll run tomorrow.

In the secluded, straw-littered loft, the moonlight snuck in from a tiny window and illuminated Cade’s face. His gaze was open, honest like it had been on the riverbank when he’d gazed deep into Myron’s soul as he laid claim and mastery over his body.

Still unable to believe Cade had completely changed his mind, he licked and rolled his lips. His heart and body were ready to bet everything on this gamble, but his mind had to check his hand.

“Cade?” He hesitated, wringing his hands and looking over their surroundings. A few bales of hay created a nook where they could lay and indulge, but before he accepted this wild unbelievable plan, he had something he needed to say.

How can I say this?

Cade offered a smile. “If you have something you need to get off your chest, I’ll listen.”

He took a deep breath. Best to start at the beginning. “That night by the fire, made me realize how much I like… certain things. Actually, how much I might, um… need them.”

He cocked his head to the side. “What do you mean, Poste?”

The use of his surname brought a level of seriousness into the conversation, and the ardor cooled. Myron’s heart pounded. “This isn’t easy to say,” he began, slipping his hat off and rubbing the back of his neck. “But it’s mighty important, I think.”

“Since when do you have trouble telling me exactly what you want?” He stepped closer and cupped Myron’s face with both hands, the touch so tender. “You were very specific on that night.”

He closed his eyes and savored the feel of Cade’s calloused thumbs brushing across his cheek bones. He’d never been so plain and open with a man as he’d been with Cade, but he’d yet to clarify his deepest desires, exposing his truest self.

“I like you without a beard,” Cade said. Then he trailed a finger down the bridge of his nose. “So much.”

Myron trembled, remembering how much Cade liked his freckles too. “I like you with and without.” He placed his hands on Cade’s strong arms, willing some of that strength to imbibe him with courage. He trembled and his cock stirred as he soaked up Cade’s nearness. Myron’s mouth parted for a kiss….

Stay focused! He took a deep, steadying breath.

“Tell me what it is you want, Myron. I promise to give it to you, if I can.”

“Sometimes I feel like I need a firm hand,” he finally whispered, eyes still closed and face down, the confession easier without being under the scrutiny of those piercing blue eyes.

“A firm hand? What do you mean?”

“I think you know.” Myron kneaded his arms, and risked a glance up. “Least I hope you do. And, I think, that you like to take a firm hand.”

Cade’s eyes widened, seeming bigger and brighter without the beard.

Myron bravely forged ahead. “What we’ve done so far… well? It’s been wonderful, and I liked it… very much. But sometimes I dream about being held down and… um… taken rough.” As he whispered the last word, his face flamed.

“You do,” Cade stated rather than asked.

“A-and… the way you struck me. I needed that too.”

Cade cocked his head to the side. “You needed it?”

“Yes, and I don’t rightly understand why myself,” he admitted, grateful for the dark. “But I do remember when I first discovered I might want… something like that.”

“Tell me?”

He mustered his courage and looked up, adoring how he had to crane his neck when they stood this close. “When I was young, I saw a boy punished once, spanked on his bare ass. He was so humiliated, but it roused my blood. That may have been when it all started,” he said hesitantly, and the openness in Cade’s expression urged him to press on. “Then just after the war, I saw a whore being spanked on a stage. At first, I was afraid for her.” He shifted his hands to Cade’s chest, kneading lightly. “The man doing it was very big, and she was so helpless. She was bound so she couldn’t get away. Everyone was cheering, but she was crying. Our eyes met across the crowd, a-and she smiled at me. I suddenly realized she wanted to be treated that way.” He closed his eyes, seeing it all again, blood pounding. “Then this queer notion came over me that I wanted to be her, I wanted that man to put me over his lap and spank me, but harder. Maybe tie me down then fuck me…” His voice choked off and it surprised him when Cade’s chapped lips claimed his.

Cade drew back from the kiss, stroking his cheeks, down his neck to massage his shoulders. A great weight of shame lifted off Myron at the gentle touch, but not so much as when Cade whispered, “I understand. I do. Because I wanna be that man, just as much as you wanna be that whore.”

Just Like Heaven & True Faith
By T.L. Bradford

Just Like Heaven Cover

Just Like Heaven

The Young Americans Series, Book 1

Noah Sinclair is best described as an egotistical, pompous, anal retentive, asshat. And those are his better qualities. Lately, Noah has lost touch with his playboy character “Jace” on the show Americana and can’t quite put his finger on why. The studio decides it is time to shake up his character by making him an offer he can’t refuse, literally. They will introduce a new love interest for his character “Jace.” Only this time, there’s a twist.

Josh Hill is up a creek and sinking fast. He’s got no job, no money, no credit and is about to be kicked out of his apartment. Opportunity comes in the form of a job offer from the show Americana. Everything should be perfect; only there is one hitch. He will be the new love interest for Noah Sinclair’s character on the beloved show.

So, opposites are supposed to attract, right? Not so fast. No one said life was that easy. Both actors find themselves in untested waters. Will they be able to play a same-sex couple with no prior experience authentically? Well, they say practice makes perfect.

Carefree, fun-loving Josh and uptight, overbearing Noah, realize they need to make the best of their bad situation and are forced to find common ground. Over time, their roles in each other’s lives become blurred. Is their attraction fake, or is it real? To top it off, Noah has a dark skeleton in his closet that can prevent them from ever moving forward.

Can they get on the same page and save both of their careers and their relationship?

Or will they end up yesterday’s tabloid fodder?

(Just Like Heaven is a full-length, slow-burn love story. It contains a cast of fully-developed characters that encounter romance, heartache, laughter, and life lessons. The book has darker themes that may act as triggers to some readers. It contains adult language, mature themes, and is best enjoyed by those over the age of 18.)

Excerpt from True Faith:

“How much was the Uber Eats? I’ll pay for it. I’m the one that dragged you out here,” Josh says.

“No, don’t worry about it. I got it. Here’s your veggie curry.”

“It smells good.”

“How’s it taste?” Noah asks.

“Alright. It’s not as good as the one we used to go to, but okay.”

“Oh shit, that’s right. Thai Mondays. I forgot about that.”

“I didn’t. I’ll still stop over and grab some when I get a chance,” Josh says.

“Hand me that sriracha sauce. It’s not truly Thai until I’ve burned the roof of my mouth.”

“Here you go. Hey, you remember that place we ate at on Fiji? What was it called, Chanatos?”

“Oh, wait, no it was Chantaro!” Noah remembers.

“Yeah! That’s the place! You had that Massaman curry and doused it in chili sauce?”

“Ugh. Don’t remind me. That chili sauce was hotter than Satan’s asshole, I swear. I paid dearly for that one, both coming and going.”

“Bwhaahhaa!”

“Why are you laughing, Josh? As I recall, you had a life ruining moment as well.”

“Yeah, that was the day I discovered you never take a shart for granted.”

“Let’s toast to that one and never eat there again,” Noah says.

“Never again,” says Josh, finishing the toast.

“We’ve had a lot of crazy firsts,” Noah reminisces.

“Remember our first zip line adventure in Fiji?” asks Josh.

“Yeah. I screamed the entire way down, then passed out.”

“Then there was our first trip to Italy.”

“I was heavily medicated on Dramamine,” Noah says, sipping his beer.

“And who could forget our first ski trip in Colorado?”

“Yeah, I got drunk off brandy to stay warm,” chuckles Noah.

“Why do most of our memorable activities revolve around you being unconscious in some way?” Josh says.

“I can think of one first where I was completely lucid.”

“What’s that?”

“Our first kiss,” Noah says.

“There were like 20 or more people staring at us, I would call that less memorable and more anxiety ridden.”

“No, not that kiss. Our first real kiss.”

“In the gazebo?” asks Josh.

“Yep.” Noah smiles.

“I was so nervous. I thought I was going to swallow my tongue.”

“I’m glad you didn’t. It would have made for an awkward good-night kiss,” Noah jokes.

“I never told you this before, but that day on the bunny slope, when you were all tangled up in your skis and falling over, was the day I realized how much I was in love with you.”

“You’re kidding, right?” A small grin trickles over Noah’s lips.

“No, I was freaking out in the van on the ride back, thinking about how to tell you.”

“That’s why you were so quiet? I thought you were busy thinking about making out with Archer.”

“Like you would’ve noticed! You spent the day practically dating my brothers! I couldn’t pry them off you. Chloe made that super lame excuse to get them out of the house so we could be alone together.”

Noah says, “Yep. I remember. The gazebo was the perfect setting with the Christmas lights and the decorations. Damn, all we needed was a Michael Bublé song and we would’ve had our own Hallmark Christmas romance movie.”

“No, that would be too PG-Rated for us.”

“We were PG. Until we got back to LA, where you corrupted me,” Noah teases.

I corrupted you? Uh, excuse me. I believe you have that backwards. I remember someone dragging me into the house and then having their wicked way.”

“That time I was the scared one.”

“We’d never gone that far before,” Josh says.

“It felt right. Like we belonged together.” Noah sighs.

“It did. We always fit together, like puzzle pieces.” Josh pauses a moment. “You fit me perfectly our first time. I wasn’t scared or nervous. You were so tender and loving.”

“Josh, I’d have done just about anything to be with you. To have you.”

“I would have let you,” Josh says, repeating that line from so long ago…

“Can I kiss you?” asks Noah.

“Please.”

Noah moves in to taste his lips, gently at first, then nipping his upper lip. “You taste so good.”

“So do you,” says Josh, reluctantly pulling his lips away.

“Again?” breathes Noah, heavily.

“Yes…mmm…how do you always do this to me?” Josh’s eyes roll back in his head in pleasure. “Noah, we can’t use sex to solve our problems all the time.”

“You’re right.”

“Is this a bad idea?” Josh says.

“Absolutely.”

“That’s what I thought. Just checking.”

About T.L.:

T.L. always hated math, so it was a good thing she had a way with words.  Since she was a shy and quirky kid; words were her best friends.  She would imagine entire worlds in her head and talk to herself endlessly.  Her mother wondered if she was speaking with ghosts for a while.

Her older sister was a voracious reader of trashy romance novels and would pass them down to her after she had finished them.  T.L. was the only 10-year-old kid sitting in class reading “The Stud” by Jackie Collins during reading time.  Oddly enough, she never got called out on it.

As she grew older, her tastes evolved, but one thing held fast; her undying attachment to love stories. One day out of the blue, she decided to write the love stories she always wanted to read instead of searching for her story.  Since then, writing has been a dream fulfilled for her and she could not be happier.

She enjoys writing about love, regardless of gender and is a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community.

T.L. calls the Pacific Northwest her home and enjoys the quiet rural life of her little oceanside home with her playful/crazy husband and their giant dog Noah.

Barely Regal by E. Davies

Rosavia Royals, Book 5

RR-5-BarelyRegal-Davies-Medium
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.

Exclusive from Ed & the Inspirations behind his Prince

 

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

Funny story, actually! The covers came first—they started out as premade covers from our wonderful cover designer, AngstyG. The time zones happened to work out perfectly: I was on vacation and Helen (HJ Welch) was awake late, so we saw them straight away. Helen said, “We HAVE to do an MM royalty shared universe!” and that was it!

We’d already learned how to build a shared world while working together to run Men of Hidden Creek (I herd the cats and set up and Helen cheerleads). So we quickly set about recruiting our shared beta reader, editor, etc, and reaching out to authors as we started collaboratively building the world of Rosavia. This time, we’ve really focused on getting all the authors to beta-read for each other as we wrote so that we could nail as many crossovers as possible. And I’ve also been the main series organizer post-draft-completion, so I feel like I’ve been living in Rosavia since late February! It’s very weird but incredibly exciting to finally share it with the rest of the world.

 

Where did your story’s inspiration come from?

The title of Barely Regal came to me first; I knew I wanted to write the story of the youngest prince, and as a youngest child myself, I knew that he was going to be a feisty little rebel who hadn’t yet learned the importance of his own duties. Muddy little Renford (or Wren, for short) came to life in a flash. I also knew from the very start that I wanted to write his valet, Thom Pierce, experiencing a conflict of interest between his palace duties and the pull he feels to fulfil Wren’s needs.

Also, on the cover, Wren has mud streaked across his neck. I decided that he’s learning to garden, and that the roses in Rosavia represent each family. Each royal family member has their own rose created for them at birth, so when they marry, another rose is created by crossing the couple’s varieties. Of course, when you’re marrying someone you were never expected to end up with, this creates complications…

 

How did you create your Prince?

Once I realized that Wren had to be the youngest prince, his bratty, flirtatious nature was obvious. And every brat needs a Daddy! The obvious man for the job was Thom, the quiet valet who has guided and steered him for the last decade. These two just came to life at the same moment, because they’re so made-for-each-other.

I really wanted to tell the story of Wren growing into his duties. Through the course of the story, Wren starts off feeling like he’s not taken seriously. I think last-born kids can relate to that feeling of being babied for too long, and it’s not helped by his own bratty nature! But luckily someone’s there to see what’s immaturity and what’s Wren’s need for a strong guiding hand. Over the story, Wren comes to realize that he’s actually playing an important role in telling the royal family’s story, and his unique talents matter.

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.

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.

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

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.

Teaser 1


Excerpt:

A soft voice from behind him said, “Mr. Jones? Uh, Jericho?”

Jericho started to shiver before he even turned around. That voice was unmistakable. Looking only confirmed that his goosebumps barely covered the situation. Holy crap. In a couple days, the impact of that face and slender body had faded in Jericho’s busy brain to something approaching attractive humanity. Clearly, his brain was nuts. This guy belonged in the realm of the gods. Jericho smiled. “Hello, uh, Brees, right?” As in gentle breezes of lilac-scented heaven?

Brees stuck out that slim hand. “Right. Brees Apollonia.”

Jericho shook Brees’s hand. Or rather totally engulfed it so that no evidence of anything but the tips of his fingers showed. Swallowing up other folk’s hands wasn’t a new experience for Jericho, but in this case, he could think of other things he might like to swallow and that image wasn’t doing anything for the fit of his jeans. He might have decided to give up dating, but his body had other ideas.

Batshit whined. Jericho dragged his focus from inappropriate things and glanced down at Brees’s Papillon wiggling at his feet looking up at Batshit with enthusiastic interest. “Oh hi.” He put Bat on the floor, and the two dogs immediately touched noses and went in for a butt sniff.

Just then, Ichiko arrived behind Brees. “I have the keys. Fourteenth floor.”

From behind Jericho, Finn said, “I’ve got our rooms, Jericho.”

Jericho chuckled, just as he felt the leash he was holding pull tight against his legs and yank him toward Brees. Both dogs had managed to circle themselves, Jericho, and Brees, tying all of them into a bundle. Of all the parts of the burrito the dogs had created, Jericho stood the tallest and had the furthest to fall—and he did. As if there was some cosmic law saying Jericho would always make a total ass of himself around Brees Apollonia, his knees locked together inside the leashes and he started to tip.

Brees’s eyes widened and he put up his hands, and fortunately, Finn, who was smaller than Jericho, but still a pretty big guy, stepped in to shore up the bulwark. Together, they managed to prop up Jericho as Ichiko scampered around unfastening leashes and unwrapping Brees and Jericho, which Jericho had to admit was a tiny bit disappointing.

The problem was that as they were unfastened from their leashes, Batshit and Rodolfo took off around the lobby on a mad Papillon chase. They weren’t trying to enlist other dogs, but that was the effect, as several of the show dogs including a greyhound and an old English sheepdog, decided that somebody was having a lot of fun without them and proceeded to pull their handlers off their feet and take off as part of the race, scattering people in the lobby like bowling pins.

The lady who’d been criticizing Jericho outside, shrieked, “Will you get control of your dogs, for God’s sake!”

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 Hailey Turner’s Heart2Heart Story “A Caller From San Francisco“:

 

A brief description of your story: As a selkie, Ethan knows to keep his seal skin safe and never give it away. With his clan on the other side of the country, he’s lonely and wishes constantly for someone to come home to. Everything changes when a fire ravages through his home, and he has to put his trust in a complete stranger.

~~~

Excerpt:
Life would be easier if he’d chosen an apartment in Berkeley, but the San Francisco Bay was a heavily trafficked body of water, and Ethan hadn’t wanted to deal with all the boats. Plus, many of the shoreline parks closed overnight, and Ethan preferred swimming at night where no one could see him change form. Living in San Francisco meant easier access to the beach, even if he didn’t go as often as he’d like.

Ethan was willing to make the sacrifice for the good of his clan, but sometimes it was isolating, even with what friends he’d managed to make in the Bay Area. Sighing, he unzipped his jacket a little while he waited on the underground platform. It was warmer in the station than up on the street, and he was feeling a bit overheated suddenly.

March was cool in parts of the Bay Area, but it got chilly during the night. Usually, Ethan could regulate his body temperature better than his human friends simply because he was a selkie. Tonight though, he stayed a little too warm even when he finally got on the first train. He thought it was a car where the heating was broken and perpetually on, but even when he switched cars, Ethan still found himself sweating.

He tried to ignore how uncomfortable he was on the trek home. He turned up the music a little and zoned out, trying not to fidget so much. He was definitely going to change forms and sleep in the tub tonight. Soaking in water would make him feel a lot better.

Then he made it home and realized nothing would be right again.

The flashing lights of multiple firetrucks up ahead on Sutter Street caught Ethan’s attention. The bus braked to a stop on the wrong side of the intersection since two police cars were blocking the way forward. Ethan turned off his music as the bus driver opened the doors.

“If you’re getting off, you need to get off here,” she said.

Ethan scrambled off the bus, heart pounding in his chest as he rushed across the street, barely cognizant of the lights changing. A police barricade had been set across the sidewalk, and Ethan’s sneakers skidded over wet cement. Smoke hung heavy on the air, stinging his nose as he finally caught sight of the devastation that used to be his apartment building—and where he’d left his seal skin, as he always did when venturing out into the world.

Ethan didn’t know he was crying until he tasted tears on his lips.

“Camp fYrefly is a summer camp and leadership retreat designed for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-identified, two-spirited, intersexed, queer, and questioning youth, (LGBTQ2S+) and planned in part by a committee of the same youth it seeks to serve. Founded in 2004 by Dr. André P. Grace and Dr. Kristopher Wells, Camp fYrefly is designed to help youth develop the leadership skills and personal resiliency necessary for them to become agents for positive change in their schools, families, and communities.”

“Project 10 works to promote the personal, social, sexual and mental well being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersexed and questioning youth and adults 14-25.

Through advocacy and education, using a harm reduction approach, Project 10 aims to facilitate the empowerment of youth at individual, community, and institutional levels with a particular emphasis on supporting individuals and groups who experience multiple and intersecting oppressions.

Services are free of charge, confidential and anonymous, and are offered in English and French.”


🌈 – QMUNITY (local services, BC)

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