Snowmancer by Olivia Helling
A future king. A slave’s last hope. Can a sacrifice become something more?
Ilyas wants someone he can trust. As the heir to a great kingdom, all he can count on is the treachery of his younger brothers as he protects his future throne. When he receives his latest spoils of war, he meets a slave who’s different. A slave with a hidden agenda…
Jem is the last chance for his people. Shunned by his brethren, he yearns to save them with an impossible task: kidnap Prince Ilyas and sacrifice him to Jem’s Dark God. Against all odds, he captures the prince and carts him across the frozen wasteland.
Now Jem must keep Ilyas safe for the sacrifice and push down his urges to do more than protect the heir to the throne. Ilyas knows he can’t trust the slave, but he feels like he’s finally found a man he can love. As their attraction builds, they grow closer to a god that could destroy them both.
Snowmancer is an LGBT dark fantasy novella set in a far-off kingdom. If you like unpredictable plot twists, rich descriptions, and tantalizing chemistry, then you’ll love Olivia Helling’s incredible tale of adventure, sacrifice, and love.
Escorting the Escort by Lyssa Dering
Eden is a high-end escort who never has sex off the job. But that changes when he meets Greer, his scrappy, tatted-up new driver whose harsh exterior hides a tender heart. Greer’s naked honesty and instant, obvious crush on Eden spur Eden to have a little fun playing with him, but quicker than either of them expected, that play turns into something real.
One-sided sexual encounters are no big deal to Eden. But Greer demands more: he wants to bring Eden true pleasure. For Eden, who has only been attracted to one man he never got to touch, this feels impossible. He’s trained himself to get hard during appointments, but what if he can’t with Greer?
Greer, who isn’t out as bisexual to his friends, is used to one-night stands via hookup apps. But Eden is something special. Greer is willing to do whatever it takes for the chance to get Eden off—and make him happy.
