Hesitant Heart (The Hampton Road Club 1) by Morticia Knight
Sam might be innocent, but the Roaring Twenties aren’t…
Sam is used to living with lots of secrets. He’s always had to hide who he is or else incur the wrath of his strict and abusive father. After he’s faced with a horrible ultimatum, he flees to Hollywood where he hopes he can escape the specter of his miserable upbringing.
Aaron is a wealthy, sophisticated man who loses himself in painting portraits of bound men to stave off his loneliness and despair. Unable to find a lasting connection with anyone, he has resorted to paying lovers so he can indulge in his darker passions. Aaron’s only respite is the Hampton Road sadomasochism club where he’s a respected Dominant.
Naïve in the ways men can please one another, Sam takes a job at a bathhouse where he first glimpses a handsome older man. Aaron has his interest sparked when he spies a shy towel boy watching him whenever he patronizes the Temple of Eros. When a traumatic event triggers Aaron’s protective nature, he rescues the gentle Sam from the clutches of the disreputable establishment’s manager.
As their bond deepens and Sam is trained for his first night at the Hampton Road Club, an unknown danger lurks. Will Aaron’s heart be crushed once again?

Not Destiny (Rules to Break Book 1) by N.J. Lysk
An alpha who won’t dominate
A beta who won’t surrender
A passion that…
breaks all the rules.
Thomas knows that as a beta he cannot expect to recognize his soulmate. He’s no monk, but he’s too busy with his hockey career and helping make his sisters’ lives with his overbearing parents a little easier.
Uriel is an alpha but he knows he cannot bear the responsibility of bonding an omega. He has his work as a lawyer and also volunteers at an orphanage trying to help the children there any way he can. He’s dated, but he is not willing to enter the kind of relationship an omega expects and betas never believe he will stay.
Except that betas cannot tell if someone is an alpha… And Uriel has no reason to mention it to a one-night-stand. But the fire between them might not be fated, but it’s undeniable, and neither can stop at just once.
Are they brave enough to defy the world’s expectations and strong enough to overcome the limitations of their own biology?
“Not Destiny” is a standalone forbidden A/B/O romance with a side of hockey and courtrooms and a sprinkle of social justice.
Steele My Heart (Bridge to Abingdon Book 1) by Tatum West
I survived cancer. I started my own business from scratch. And I’ve put up with hate and small town politics. But nothing prepared me for love at first sight…Gil Steele melted my heart and set my soul on fire the first time I saw him. And, God help me, he’s caught up in a dangerous game–trying to change this town. It might get me killed. Might get us both killed. But Gil, he might just be worth it.
Gil: I was tired of working the police beat in Northern Cali. Exhausted–my whole body was yearning for a place I hadn’t been in years, my old home. When my mama died, I knew I had to come back, and my new job as police chief sealed the deal.
I got away from heartbreak. From being so tired. From the constant, never-ending world of crime I’d come to know. In Abingdon, I can relax, see all my old friends from Jackson Academy. Maybe I can even change this place and make it better for all the kids like me. The ones who were different, who needed a place a little bigger and broader than a small mountain town could provide. I always promised myself I wouldn’t come back. But Kendall Vincent–he might get me to stay for good. When I’m in his arms, I feel complete, whole again, like a man reborn to the world.
Everything seems perfect, right up until the moment that it’s not. When two gay kids get hurt bad by a gang of thugs, I realize that Abingdon needs me far more than I thought. And I’m here to protect the town–and the man–that I’m growing to love.
Kendall: I’ve survived everything this world has tossed my way–ignorant parents, falling for men who want to play straight, and running a food truck in a town that likes its men butch and its hot dogs bland as all hell. I even got through chemo and three bone marrow transplants when I was a kid. But nothing prepared me for meeting Gilman Steele. Six feet of pure muscle with eyes that shine like gold and a smile I’d like to see every morning for the rest of my life. I know I’m crazy, but I swear to God almighty that I fell in love with that man of Steele from the first second I laid eyes on him.
There’s a secret I know that could change my relationship with Gil, a lie I’ve been hiding for over a year. It could threaten Gil’s life here, everything he’s worked for. But justice is justice, and I believe in the Abingdon that Gil wants to create. When the drama gets worse than I ever imagined, I realize that Gil’s not the only one in danger. I’m toppling off a bridge and getting sucked down into the murky water of Holston Lake when I know for sure–this isn’t the day I meet my maker. I didn’t survive everything I’ve been through just to die at the hands of an evil man with a secret far darker than my own. I’ll make my way back to Gil. He’s mine, now and forever. This town might not be ready for us, but I am. And I plan to let the world know it.
Steele My Heart is the first book in the Bridge to Abingdon series. Each book focuses on one amazing couple, and each can be read as a total standalone.There’s lots of steam, a heaping dose of mystery, a dash of insta-love, and a happy ending that’s guaranteed to make your heart melt. There are a few chilling scenes and some ignorant jerks who meet justice in every sense of the word. Gil Steele and Kendall Vincent are the future of Abingdon, and the men who set up the story for the rest of our lovers. Enjoy!

Of All the Odds by R. Phoenix
When the fae play such deadly games, falling in love with one of them can have devastating consequences…
Fickle and capricious, the fae lack a true understanding of human emotions. Though they can masquerade as human, their behavior inevitably betrays them as something utterly other. When Ichabod bested him at a card game, Sebastian abandoned his human lover, leaving him only with a cursed deck to keep him alive.
For a century, Ichabod has waited for his fae lover to return to him. Every day to prolong his life, he must trick an oblivious outsider into choosing a card from a cursed deck — a card that spells everything from a stomach full of bees to a full body swap… to death. Having their deaths on his conscience weighs on him, but to fail would mean the end of his existence… and he isn’t ready to let go when Sebastian might return…
Their reunion is as erotic and dangerous as their time together, with the two exploring the depths of dominance and submission, of pleasure and pain, of sadism and masochism. But can one of the fae truly care for a human? Or will Ichabod’s ferocious love for Sebastian prove to be the end of him?
Of All the Odds is a non-traditional love story and modern-day fairy tale of the Grimm variety. Warnings/Temptations: unsafe BDSM (in all senses of the phrase), a Master/slave style-relationship, and consensual breath play.
