Double Heat (Twin Ties #3) by

When Evan and Brennan moved in with their boyfriends, Alek and Luka, they knew things would be complicated, but as their privacy gets eroded, and people around them begin to notice the tangled nature of the four-way relationship, coping becomes a struggle. After Brennan leaves on a brief trip home, and Evan remains behind to enjoy the full attention of both Alek and Luka, the careful balance of things gets thrown off.

Ex-boyfriends surface, haunting Evan and Brennan in similar ways as regret for poor choices threatens their happiness, and the sexual freedom displayed earlier in their lives draws predators willing to use violence, coercion, mind-games and force to take what they want. Though Luka and Alek struggle to protect those they love, it soon becomes clear that the dangers surrounding them will find ways to rush in, trying to take what belongs to them. (M/M+)

Beneath the Faerie Tree by

When Isabella wept out her heartbreak over her arranged marriage at her favorite place, she never expected to be swept into the Faerie Tree.

Mariella by

Touched by Fire by

Rome sleeps, and the temple of Vesta tends to its fires in the night. It is time sweet Marcia was introduced to what truly kept the flames alive within the Vestal Virgins.

Touching Freedom by

Natalie hates living in Wesley House, where an infestation in the plumbing leads to tentacles boiling up from the shower drains and girls sighing suspiciously above the hiss of running water. She’s not one of the perverted Hentai girls—the ones who like living in Wesley—and there’s no place in her controlled life for that sort of pleasure or abandon. She focuses on her violin lessons, her marine biology studies, and her petition for a new room assignment. When a group of girls force her to encounter the tentacles, however, Natalie discovers a scientific puzzle. Instead of the rapacious beast she expected, she finds a vulnerable creature in need. Trying to help it leads to Natalie’s first taste of rebellion, her first experiences of being seen as a “hot girl,” and her first awakening to sexual pleasure.

Hera’s Punishment by

The marriage of Zeus, king of the gods, and Hera, his queen, has always been stormy. Eventually something had to give, for not even divine will could be tested so long and so cruelly without a reckoning. When Hera came to Zeus’ chambers, he suspected her passion was too good to be true. It was. Soon, Zeus was bound and helpless before his angry wife. When the king of Olympus got free, Hera’s Punishment would be legendary. (M/F)

 

Song of the Lonesome Cowboy by

Tucker Reynolds is a rising star in country music. The people from his record label tell him he’s destined to be one of the greats—but only if he fits the “good ol’ boy” image country fans expect from him. The trouble is, that’s not the kind of man’s man Tucker really wants to be. Forced into an unsavory relationship with a record executive and frustrated by his regrettably platonic relationship with his best friend and guitarist, Mags Palmer, Tucker turns to kinky sex with male prostitutes for release. Things hit Tucker’s limit when one of Tucker’s bandmates, Jess Grayville, begins to suspect what’s going on, and puts himself in danger to protect Tucker. Desperate for a way out of his troubles, Tucker realizes only honesty, love, and a true song can save himself and the man who stands by him. (M/M)

I See You by

For years, the shape-shifter Mariss had moved among the rich and powerful, changing face and body, re-inventing identity, always seeking the most unique erotic experiences.

The game, and possibly Mariss’ life, are put at risk when one beautiful young woman says three terrifying words: “I See You.” (F/M, F/F, F/GQ)
