A feel-good, heartwarming, sexy story unlike any other story that you’ve read with Christmas in the title.
Christmas is a really big deal in Britain. The parties and preparations begin in November, at the latest. In the construction industry, Christmas means two weeks off work for Connor and Lee. Yes, two weeks. They’ve only been dating since September. In secret.
They just want to spend the holiday time together, like any other gay guys in love. Alone and mostly naked. And we all know the true meaning of Christmas is explaining and justifying to friends and family how you are spending the holiday and who with.
This is another Sky High Scaffolders story, written mostly in British but with American spelling. An M/M story of 44,000 words. A long novella, not quite long enough to be a novel when size matters.
Our Secret Christmas is a companion to Our Secret Wedding.
Forgetting them was near impossible, but choosing one was harder.
Declan had kept his secret for so long; its revelation could destroy his family. Being gay wasn’t it. The truth was far worse—he’d fallen for his stepbrother, Ollie.
Returning home for the holidays wasn’t something he did very often, but his mom insisted on it that year. His trip home didn’t turn out as he expected; Declan’s world was flipped on its head by a sexy stranger. Now he was torn, unable to get Batman out of his head and Ollie out of his heart.
Note: this story was originally published in the Tempting Scrooge anthology, but has been substantially revised, reedited and additional content added.
The closeted sports star and a straight paramedic, the heli-skiing trip that traps the two men on a mountain and a game of twenty questions. What could go wrong? Or will it be the moment they get all they’ve ever wanted? In discovering their bisexuality, will Reef and Ford be brave enough to reach for each other?
Pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid, is at the peak of his career. He has it all. Except the one thing he desperately wants: a lover, the white picket fence and his happily ever after. Disillusioned and exhausted, he flees to a tropical paradise to defrost.
But a ticketing mishap lands him in the ski village of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace loves the ladies, but rarely sticks around longer than a night. Falling for a man wasn’t on the cards, but everything he knows is flipped on its head when the enigmatic Reef Reid literally drops out of the sky.
When a whiteout traps them on a mountaintop neither expects sparks to ignite. They’re unable to resist each other, but will they give into temptation? Or will the avalanche that tears through the mountain end them?
Whiteout is book one in Ann Grech’s international hit male/male romance series, Unexpected. Books 2 and 3 continue Reef and Ford’s story through the highs and lows of the pro-snowboarding circuit. You’ll fall in love, want to slap a certain someone or two and swoon over these two men who are made for each other.
All they want for Christmas is…love!

The Billionaire’s Son by Clancy Nacht & Thursday Euclid
Reckless and handsome Dane Peters is a good-for-nothing trust fund baby: listless, indecisive, and better known on campus for being a wild ride than a smart student. Desperate to stay in college and out of the real world, Dane changes his major once again—this time to English, whose department dean is a Peters family friend.
To keep party boy Dane on the straight and narrow, the dean assigns penniless lit geek and grad student Hugh Halberstadt to mentor Dane so he can graduate and take his place as heir to the family empire. Unfortunately for everyone, Dane isn’t ready to grow up, and as much as the reserved Hugh wants to help, Dane could be a dangerous distraction from the thesis paper Hugh can’t afford to put off.
Awkward with their growing affection, the pair are forced to contend with their radically contrasting lifestyles as the end of semester—and Christmas—approaches.
Will Hugh teach Dane to be a responsible adult? Can Dane convince Hugh that spontaneity and fun aren’t a bad thing? Will this odd couple overcome their differences, or will the end of the semester be the end of their time together?

Behind These Doors by Jude Lucens
Lucien Saxby is a journalist, writing for the society pages. The Honourable Aubrey Fanshawe, second son of an earl, is Society. They have nothing in common, until a casual encounter leads to a crisis.
Aubrey isn’t looking for love. He already has it, in his long-term clandestine relationship with Lord and Lady Hernedale. And Lucien is the last man Aubrey should want.

Aubrey can’t afford to trust him when arrest and disgrace are just a breath away.
Lucien doesn’t trust nobs. Painful experience has taught him that working people simply don’t count to them. Years ago, he turned his back on a life of luxury so his future wouldn’t depend on an aristocrat’s whim. Now, thanks to Aubrey, he’s becoming entangled in the risky affairs of the upper classes, antagonising people who could destroy him with a word.
Aubrey and Lucien have too much to hide—and too much between them to ignore. Rejecting the strict rules and closed doors of Edwardian society might lead them both to ruin… but happiness and integrity alike demand it.
