SPOTLIGHT!! Apple Boy by Isobel Starling
A NEW LGBT FANTASY SERIES FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR ISOBEL STARLING
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!

Like all centaur shifters, Sheriff Calhoun is the epitome of honor. He protects his small town of Stallion Ridge and its people from any threat large or small.
When word comes in that the notorious Iron Bandits are making a play for a train in his territory he’s both livid and invigorated. If anyone can bring these thieves to justice it’s him and his crew.
What he did not expect was having a charming, whiskey-eyed outlaw dumped in his lap that challenged everything he thought he knew.
When a former pro-snowboarder finds himself caught between two men who have stolen his heart, it takes heartbreak and a hit of reality for him to start believing love is truly all he needs.
I didn’t think it’d turn out this way: my life story in a nutshell. Life, Karma, whatever—it was testing me. Pushing me to the limit of what I could endure and beyond.
But in the steaming pile my life had become, I felt it. The spark. Like my soul met its counterparts, or whatever the corny saying was. I didn’t think it was possible. For a closeted guy, falling for not one but two men was never going to be easy, but I couldn’t deny its truth. Mace and Rick were….
Then I had to leave. My sister needed me. Having a baby alone was out of the question and I couldn’t wait to be an uncle. But going to stay with her in Florida meant leaving them. New Zealand and the USA couldn’t be further apart.
I’m not a saint. I’ve screwed up more times than I can count. But I was trying to redeem myself. Gracie, my niece, needed me to be a better man. If only there was a way I could have both—men to love and a family close by.
This is my truth, and this is all I need.

Neither knows that Oberon is facing imminent destruction. Even as the world starts to fall apart around them, they have no idea what’s coming—or the bond that will develop between them as they race to avert a cataclysm.

One closed off alpha, two emotionally scarred omegas…three men who make a beautiful discovery and will do anything to make it work.
All they have is each other…
Perry and Roberto both survived terrible childhoods. They found refuge in each other but swore off real love, because real love only brings heartbreak. But one night at a swingers party, they catch a scent that neither of them can believe: a fated-mate alpha–for both of them?
All he has is himself…
Free of his ex, Jedrik vowed to never let himself get hurt that again. He keeps his head down and works hard at his own custom furniture business. But when his assistant invites him to a “munchin” (aka. a swingers part) he decides to finally let himself have some fun. But he never expected to run into two scents that would change his life.
But maybe they can find love together…
Jedrik blows off the party and takes the omegas home with him for a mind blowing night. Fated-mates. None of them even believed it was a real thing–until now.
But the next morning, Jedrik’s crazy ex, Sasha, shows up. Having stalked Jedrik for months, he’s furious to see him moving on with not just one, but two omegas at his side. He and his new criminal friends vow to get revenge, and Jedrik realizes his new family is in terrible danger, but having found his miracles, Jedrik will do anything he can to make sure they are safe, but will he be able to protect them while completely outnumbered, and can the three of them make their unconventional relationship as beautiful as they know it can be?
