Monster by Soren Summers
Bloodied corridors. Mangled bodies. Deranged test subjects. Just another day at Vertex, a corporation devoted to perfecting humanity by any means necessary. It’s up to Jarod Samuels to keep the hallways pristine and safe, but scrubbing bloodstains and bagging bodies is losing its luster.
Then someone new joins his department, this man with a huge ego and an even huger mouth. Gabriel Anderson is infuriating but intriguing, as brash as he is beautiful, and almost enough to keep Jarod preoccupied. Almost.
But between workplace hazards, psychic sociopaths, and a mysterious formula that alters the human body, Jarod’s doubts are surging. Should he stay with the corporation, or run like hell? This is Vertex, after all, where the walls watch with glass eyes, the laboratories groan with secrets – and employee termination ends more than just careers.
This romantic horror story is approximately 88,000 words in length.
Growing Desires (A Serrano Novel) by Bryce Winters
Royce Thompson has been working his whole life toward his goal of making a difference in the world. Now, the only thing standing in the way of his research and earning his doctorate degree is money. When the university partners with Serrano Investments to fund Royce’s research, Royce finds himself looking into a very familiar pair of dark eyes, eyes that have been haunting his dreams for the past two years. Not that he has told anybody, especially his best friend, Landon. As far as Royce is concerned, he’s straight. Very straight. Isn’t he?
Isaac Serrano remembers feeling drawn to Royce the second he saw him almost two years ago. But he also knew he could never allow it to grow into anything more. He has his own responsibilities to consider, both to his career and his family. If he had his way, he would never see Royce again. But when a coworker and friend begs Isaac to take his place at an upcoming meeting for a new investment opportunity, Isaac finds himself rushing into a conference room occupied by none other than Royce Thompson.
As their business relationship develops, Royce struggles with his new desires directed toward Isaac. Isaac tries to keep his distance, as they both know their affair would not only put Isaac’s career at risk, but would halt any funding for Royce’s research. Helpless against their growing desire for one another, will they lose everything?
Growing Desires is a gay romance novel of approximately 60,000 words full of stubborn, smart protagonists, a meddling professor, Landon and Derek’s wedding, a farm in the middle of nowhere, and two men who want to be together but don’t know if they can. It does have a Happily Ever After (complete with epilogue), no cliffhangers, and can be read as a standalone (though a few minor things will make more sense if you’ve read Making Music first).

One moment changed my life forever.
Her big green eyes looked at me and I knew I would never be the same.
But sometimes in life, the things you want are the ones that stand just out of reach.
The pain her loss in my life caused was indescribable.
Hot, piercing pain that in all of my twenty years of living, I had never experienced.
I remembered her.
Every bad date my friends pushed me into.
Every lonely holiday I spent without her to talk to.
Until we met once more.
And I found her all over again.
My father always told me that love snuck up on you when you were least expecting it.
That’s what happened with her.
Charlie was my girl from that moment on and I would do anything to protect her.
Dare To Love is an installment of The Beautifully Broken Series but can be read as a standalone.
