A lost lordling, a farm boy, and a tale of mystery, magic, and murder!
After a traumatic event, Winter Aeling finds himself destitute and penniless in the backwater town of Mallowick. He needs to travel to the city of Serein and impart grave news that will bring war to the Empire, but without a horse, money, and with not a soul willing to help him, he has no choice but to line up with the common folk seeking paid work on the harvest.
As wagons roll into the market square and farmers choose day laborers, Winter is singled out for abuse by a brute of a farmer. The only man who stands up for him is the farmer’s beguiling son, Adam, and on locking eyes with the swarthy young man Winter feels the immediate spark of attraction.
Winter soon realizes there is a reason he has been drawn to Blackdown Farm. The farmer possesses a precious item that was stolen long ago from Winter’s family, and he determines to retrieve it. He also cannot take his eyes off Adam, and as the young man opens up Winter can’t help wondering if Adam is just kind or his kind!

Although Ambrose doesn’t wish to be with anyone long term, he must find a spouse immediately. According to the rules, no one inherits the throne unless they’re married. Additionally, his father wishes for Ambrose to seek a human. Despite not being elated with the decision, Ambrose figures doing the necessary requirement of mating and impregnating will be enough.

Relationships aren’t even on their list of things to strive for, and they don’t want to change. Unless the person is a certain Hollywood star they have a crush on, Max isn’t interested.
When Ambrose meets Max at their place of employment, Max refuses to give the alien king-in-waiting the time of day.
Little does Max know Ambrose’s calm exterior is a cover up for the monster willing to go great lengths to claim them for a partner.
This title is a standalone dark romance with forced mating, dub-con, MPreg, and smartass aliens who hate to be wrong. On page violence, rough sex, and knotting are included.
Stalking the attractive son of a European dealer at an art and antiques convention can be pretty futile. Art expert Norm, however, pursued the young Dane−more as an entertaining diversion than expecting anything sexual, after all Norm at thirty-five was at least ten years older than Gil. Imagine Norm’s surprise when Gil attended one of the expert’s seminars.
A short time later, both were back in New York City where Norm’s gallery was located and where Gil managed a satellite venue for his father’s business. A friendly dinner was followed by the extension of an invitation for Gil to use a spare bedroom in Norm’s condo until the young Dane could find affordable accommodations on his own. Norm’s motives were definitely not totally altruistic, but he soon concluded Gil was straight, even though the younger man was affable and even supportive at Norm’s gay soirées.
The Platonic relationship was disrupted by two ostensibly unrelated events. First, Norm inadvertently witnessed a cozy tête-à-tête between Gil and an East European actor Norm recognized from a spread in a gay magazine. After Gil departed from the bar, Tomek, the actor, was joined by a tall man who, after warily glancing around the space, quickly ushered the actor from the bar. Second, the FBI appears at Norm’s door while Gil is away at work. The agent expresses concerns about a conspiracy involving a devious Gil, Tomek, and the tall man. Norm is convinced by the FBI agent to allow surveillance equipment in Gil’s bedroom, and given access to the video feed on his personal computer.
The images and sounds captured by the hidden camera entice Norm and he becomes addicted to self-abuse while watching Gil and Tomek frolic on the Dane’s bed. Norm is conflicted between his perceived responsibility as a concerned citizen and his lust-filled desire to continue watching in effect, a live porn flick.

Dominus by JP Kenwood
In AD 107, after a grueling campaign against Rome’s fierce enemy, the kingdom of Dacia, Gaius Fabius returns home in triumph. With the bloody battles over, the commander of the Lucky IV Legion now craves life’s simple pleasures: leisurely soaks in fragrant baths, over-flowing cups of wine, and a long holiday at his seaside villa to savor his pleasure slaves. On a whim, he purchases a spirited young Dacian captive and unwittingly sparks a fresh outbreak of the Dacian war; an intimate struggle between two sworn enemies with love and honor at stake.
Allerix survived the wars against Rome, but now he is a sex slave rather than a victor. Worse, the handsome general who led the destruction of his people now commands his body. When escape appears impossible, Alle struggles to find a way to preserve his dignity and exact vengeance upon the hated Romans. Revenge will be his, that is, if he doesn’t lose his heart to his lusty Roman master.
Dominus is a plot-packed erotic m/m fantasy that transports readers back to ancient Rome during the reign of the Emperor Trajan (98-117). This is the first book in an alternate history series—a tumultuous journey filled with forbidden love, humor, sex, friendship, political intrigue, deception and murder.
