Bedside Manner by DJ Jamison
Dr. Paul Johnston can’t get a set of dark, somber eyes out of his head, and the timing couldn’t be worse.
The last thing he needs is to fall for a patient. Not now, when he’s been put on paid leave pending review of a formal complaint. One that accuses him of sexual impropriety of some kind. It’s possible he let his newfound freedom as a divorced, out-of-the-closet gay man go to his head, but he’s certain — mostly — he didn’t do anything wrong. Now, he’s struggling to handle the reality that his job is in danger and the only guy he wants should be off-limits.
Zane Kavanaugh is floundering, and there’s only one man who soothes the storm inside him.
Reeling from an assault that landed him in the hospital and the painful estrangement from his family since coming out, Zane is trying to get his feet under him and find his independence. He moves in with a roommate and searches for a job, all while recovering from a fractured arm and cracked ribs. None of that hurts as much as the emotional damage he’s suffered. When he connects with Dr. Paul Johnston outside of the ER, he’s drawn to the man’s calm, collected manner. It doesn’t hurt that Paul’s lack of experience with men is sexy as hell, and so are his over-the-top responses when Zane gets his lips on him.
There’s no right time to fall in love.
Paul is afraid to start a relationship, and Zane can only handle so much more rejection. Will these two find their perfect moment, or will they realize you can’t choose when and how you fall in love? If Paul can’t take a risk, he may have to choose: the career he loves or the first man to capture his heart.
This is a m/m romance. It can be read as a standalone, although the characters appear in secondary roles in Heart Trouble.
Be Loved by Stella Starling
“How do you fall out of love with your best friend?”
Police Officer Brandon Byrne has carried a torch for his best friend since the day they first met. He’s mastered the art of keeping his feelings to himself as Shane, a serial monogamist, falls out of one bad relationship and right into another, again… and again… and again. But now, after ten long years, it’s finally time to face reality.
Shane’s getting married, and what Brandon once thought was his destiny is just never going to happen.
On the cusp of saying yes to his boyfriend’s marriage proposal, Shane Allen is getting cold feet. He’s always wanted a happily-ever-after… so shouldn’t he be more excited at the thought that it’s finally about to happen? But when he takes a compatibility quiz on the popular gay dating app, bLoved, it does more than just help him answer that question, it opens his eyes to some scary truths.
Maybe it’s not just cold feet. Maybe it’s time to get out.
Brandon might finally get his chance at the one thing he’s always wanted, but only if he can protect Shane long enough to take it… because when Shane’s rejection exposes his ex’s true nature, it starts to look a lot like that of a psychopath.
Be Loved is a gay romance novel of approximately 75,000 words that features a nice guy who carries a gun, jewelry filled with the kind of magic that can only come from the heart, fun facts about Uranus, and an emotionally battered man who finally gets what he’s always deserved: love. It has a happily-ever-after ending, no pesky cliffhangers, and can be read as a standalone… but if you enjoy Brandon and Shane’s story, be sure to check out the other books in the series! Enjoy!
Taming War by Charlie Richards
When the Horseman of War decides to have a little fun and he accompanies a favored demon into the human realm to join in a skirmish, he never expects to meet a vampire that jumpstarts his libido. A romp with Monte Hanover would be fun, passionate, and maybe even worthy of a repeat…after they finish the battle, of course. To his surprise, he helps rescue a prairie dog shifter that brings out protective instincts he didn’t even know he was capable of. Unfortunately, little Xerxes turns out to be Monte’s beloved. Scratching his itch with either man seems unlikely. Then, the unthinkable happens, and he realizes without his intervention, it would mean the death of both men. Can he take that leap? Or will War decide two lives, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t really worth the changes he’d need to make?
Work Of Art by Rachel Cane
Private eye Derek Marlowe wishes he’d never agreed to hunt down this stolen painting for a wealthy client. He can’t tell a Van Gogh from a Picasso. Fortunately, he finds art historian (and sometimes nude model) Theo Stanton, who’s the expert he needs. Unfortunately, from the second they meet, Derek finds himself hopelessly attracted to the younger man.
Theo is frightened. The truth is, he’s the thief who stole the painting, and he has plans to steal another. The last thing he needs now is to get close to the detective who is hunting him down. And yet he can’t get Derek out of his mind. As they work together, he realizes how much of an emotional connection is growing between them…a connection that could be destroyed if Derek ever found out the truth.
Derek knows he shouldn’t say anything about his feelings. He knows Theo is too cultured, too hot, and too young for him. But if he doesn’t take the chance and tell Theo how he feels, he might never get another chance.
Torn by trust issues in their pasts, can Derek and Theo’s budding relationship survive the deep secret that lurks between them?
Work of Art is a steamy May-December gay romance with hurt/comfort themes.
