SPOTLIGHT!! Trust the Connection by Brigham Vaughn
NOTE: This story was previously published as a two-volume serial under the titles of “Connection” and “Trust”. Minor updates have been made but the story is essentially unchanged. This is a re-release.
Scars run deep but run loves even deeper.
After a lifetime of being told he’s worthless, Evan Harris is forced out of the closet and the only home he’s ever known. Jobless and homeless, he makes a desperate call to a couple he barely knows. They give him a place to stay at their place in Atlanta while he gets back on his feet. But he’s too shy to explore the big city and go after what he wants: a relationship.
Physically and emotionally scarred from a devastating car accident, Jeremy Lewis struggles to reconcile the brash, outgoing man he used to be with the social recluse he’s become. He’s resigned himself to being alone, but an encounter with an ex-boyfriend shakes up his dull existence and brings Evan into his life.
Loneliness draws Evan and Jeremy to each other, but a strong mutual attraction isn’t enough. At thirty-six, Jeremy is convinced a relationship would be holding twenty-one-year-old Evan back.
Evan must be strong enough to fight for what he wants and Jeremy must let someone close enough to see his scars. Otherwise, they’ll miss out on the love of a lifetime.
‘Tis the night before the night before Christmas and there’s only one Bright Light Beauty Shoppe left in all of Connecticut. When Mitch and Jackson make a simultaneous grab for it, they make a connection that goes deeper than a brush of hands over a gaudy pink-and-purple box.
Mitch is shopping for his youngest sister, who he hasn’t seen since he came out to his parents a year and a half ago. This will be his first Christmas back with the family he’s not sure he can forgive.
Jackson is shopping for a new boyfriend. No! Bad Jackson. He’s supposed to be on a relationship break. His ex-boyfriend only moved out a month ago and his best friend tells him he’s too quick to jump into commitments. The plan is to enjoy some uncommitted sex, so why not enjoy it with Mitch?
As the final days of Christmas count down, Mitch and Jackson find that all they have to do to get everything they want this year is give love a chance.
Giving Chances is an M/M standalone Christmas novella with a happy ending.
The Alpha Highwayman by Colbie Dunbar
How can an aristocrat who’s turned to a life of crime find love?
Baron Christopher ‘Kit’ Conroy is an alpha who spends his days in taverns and his nights robbing carriages traveling dark, country roads. His lifestyle’s precarious, but the thrill of getting away with his misdeeds is addictive.
Lord Aquilla ‘Quill’ Wentworth, is an omega who lives at the magnificent Riverside Hall with servants who have been loyal to him since his birth.
Neither alpha nor omega is searching for a mate, but on a fateful night when Quill is returning from an engagement, and Kit is desperate for funds, the pair meet. But not before the alpha chases the omega’s carriage across the countryside.
Despite less that promising first impressions, the mismatched pair cannot ignore their attraction to one another. But Kit has a price on his head, and Quill cannot leave home. Both are torn between wanting to be together and needing to stay apart.
But the alpha cannot keep running forever because the past is about to catch up to him. Is there a noose with his name on it?
Comply by Lee Manarte
“The world is a cruel place…”
No one believes that more than I do. My name is Declan Forester, and I am a Zedian. Part of a different species born with miraculous gifts from the gods, only the humans don’t see it that way. They see us as something to be tamed.
After being captured by the humans and stripped of my abilities, I have little left. With my life in shambles, my thoughts are haunted by my human tormenter. Dr. Adam Davenport. A human male that is everything nightmares are made of.
Now, his unwilling captive in a government-run facility, I am forced to obey his every demand, or be punished. Caught up in a web of lies about gods, the push to help a hot redhead, my high running desires and, oh yeah, the pending apocalypse, I find myself falling apart. And Adam may be the only one to save me…if I comply.
Hot, needy, alluring… No other words can describe Clent’s encounter with the devil.
‘Lucifer’s hand tightened around him. “You can’t come yet, boy. I want to play with you more.”
No one said getting your college degree would be easy. Clent knows that better than anyone. He has been working himself ragged for a while, so when his roommate suggests a night off, Clent is all for it. A night to party, to forget all worries, and just be free. Except that’s not how Clent’s night goes.
Who in their right mind would try and face the devil? Clent obviously isn’t in his right mind because that’s exactly what he plans to do. Easier said than done. Isn’t the devil suppose to be scary and hellish? So why can’t Clent get Lucifer out of his head? The devil is sex on two legs and he knows it.
Deals will be made and wishes granted. How do you beat the devil at his own game?
