Darke Accused: A Darke and Flare Mystery by Parker Avrile
An FBI agent goes undercover to catch a thief who turns out to be too hot to handle.
Darke Davis destroyed evidence to give his partner-in-crime time to flee with thirty-nine million dollars— and Special Agent Flare Greene is determined to get that money back. Hooking up with Darke at a popular gay roadhouse seems like a brilliant way to insinuate his way into Darke’s life.
Flare didn’t plan on the two of them stumbling over a body and finding themselves on the run from charges of first-degree murder. It’s the perfect opportunity to bond with Darke, but if they can’t work together to solve these crimes, they may find themselves locked up together for longer than just one night.
This 72,000-word romantic suspense mystery novel includes a troubled ex-cop, an undercover FBI agent, and a gay wedding resort town full of secrets beneath the cupcakes. This novel features gay male/male romantic and sexual relationships in a modern out-and-proud setting.
No cliffhangers, and you may expect the killer to find justice. However, because Darke and Flare are at the beginning of their journey together, they reach a happy for now ending with relationship challenges remaining ahead of them.

Nasu by Jet Lupin
Go to work. Come home. Repeat. Simple, uncomplicated, boring, but it was Phil’s love, and he liked it that way. So what if he sometimes woke up with an ache in his chest that wouldn’t go away because his ex broke up with him over cereal? He was a big boy. He moved on because he had to. But nosey friends and fate won’t let him be.
One night, when he’s forced to have fun, he meets Shige, who’s far too enigmatic to really be interested in him. There must be some catch…
50 years have passed outside while Shige’s kept himself locked away, tired of the worlds of humans and vampires. He just wanted to be left alone to collect dust. But all that changed when he ventured out on a whim and meets Phil, setting them on an arduous path that will change them both.
This love won’t be easy for either of them, rife with distrust and danger from without and within, but if they survive, they might be stronger for it.

Guarding his Desires by Jaylen Florian
A cleverly disguised stranger ambushes Zachary during a one-night stand.
To ever be safe again, Zachary must evade capture, discover who is hunting him, and determine who betrayed him.
Are his ruthless pursuers after revenge or ransom? Or are they seeking to destroy his soaring mixed martial arts fighting career?
Zachary is on the run with two thoughtful young men — Aleksey, his savvy bodyguard, and Gustavo, a reflective and talented artist with a collapsing career.
By inadvertently interrupting a clandestine criminal encounter, Gustavo appears to have acquired “the clairvoyant cobra” — the fabled and long lost bejeweled wand from Hollywood’s legendary Silent Era. Burdened with priceless treasure, Gustavo must decide where the riches belong and act before the jewels are re-captured by malevolent hands.
During their shocking missions each man grapples with life decisions about his career, home, and, most importantly, his personal fulfillment.

“Guarding His Desires” contains passionate and romantic themes intended for mature audiences. It is a stand-alone novel featuring recurring characters in Jaylen Florian’s “Passionate Security Series.” (You can begin the series with this book. The books do not need to be read in a specific order.)
River Home by Elle Keaton
If you don’t know what you want, would you recognize it if you found it?
Miguel Ramirez is the definition of pochos; a half-breed-white-washed Mexican–American who doesn’t speak Spanish (also unapologetically bisexual). Three years ago he arrived in Skagit a broken man having barely managed to escape an abusive relationship. Slowly, he’s rebuilt his life. He’s tried hard to discard his deepest desires and be happy with what life has doled out. Family feels out of his grasp, no one really wants to keep a stray after all. Except, maybe, a red-haired stranger with a galaxy of freckles covering his face who seems to encompass everything Miguel’s learned to avoid.
Nate Richardson; focused, solid, reliable, career-minded, Federal Agent. No time for relationships outside of work. Then he runs into Miguel with his crazy green eyes, rakish smile and outrageous sense of humor. Nate starts thinking about Miguel as more than just another guy. Nate was sure he didn’t care about sex and didn’t believe in love…he’d never met Miguel Ramirez before.
Things quickly heat up between Nate and Miguel. Crime is heating up in Skagit as well. Nate is sidelined when the case he is working on reaches a frustrating standstill. In the meantime, unnerving incidents transpire, some literally on Nate’s doorstep. Will outside forces—or their own baggage—keep Miguel and Nate apart? What exactly is family, and can Miguel and Nate make one of their own?
Captive Soul by April Kelley
Jules might be one of the only humans amongst a house full of paranormal being, but they’re his family, and he’s not giving them up for two mates who left him at the hands of a monster.
Jules Somerset has fought hard the past year to get his life on track after being kidnapped by an insane vampire. Since his rescue, he’s gained a family who loves him, has a job he’s good at, and has made friends with a lot of his fellow clansmen. He also holds a longing in his heart for two prejudiced jerks. Okay, to be fair, Hacen is the only one prejudiced. Tommy just goes along. Jules wants to be so over the whole mating thing already but can’t seem to stop wanting them both.
Warnings: M/M/M romance (as in, the story is about a polyamorous relationship between three males). Also, this book is a part of a series and is NOT a standalone. The author recommends reading the book in sequence.
