Throughout the restaurant industry, Chef Bastian Aquino is a notorious control freak. For two very long years, Kian Reynolds has worked for Bastian as his special assistant, doing whatever he and his restaurant needs. The toughest part isn’t even all the impossible tasks he expects Kian to complete flawlessly—it’s the hopeless, endless love he feels for his older boss.
Falling for someone so far above him might be agonizing, but at least his feelings aren’t unrequited. Bastian fell in love right alongside him, but at the very beginning, they made the choice to abstain for logical, smart, professional reasons.
But love isn’t logical, it isn’t smart, and it definitely isn’t professional. It defies containment, even by Bastian. While he watches Bastian struggle with their attraction, Kian finally comes to the conclusion that he’s done.
He’s done standing off the side, done not getting any of the credit, done letting Bastian define the boundaries of their relationship. Most of all, he’s done waiting.
Indulge Me is an 85,000 word contemporary romance, featuring an enormous amount of pining, a boss/employee relationship, an age gap and very delicious risotto. It is the fourth and final book in the Kitchen Gods series, and to receive a fuller, more enjoyable reading experience, I would recommend reading at least one other book in the series first.
Skylar Orion’s life has been complicated ever since his mother abandoned him and his sister Evie. Making ends meet seemed impossible until Tate Chandler took them in — his knight in shining armor who promised to make life about more than just surviving. But Tate is not the man he seemed to be, and even his whispered I love yous and generous gifts do little to soothe the pain he causes. Knowing he can’t give his sister all that she deserves without Tate, Skylar stays with him, relying on bad puns and a worse sense of humor to keep up the charade.
He will do anything for his sister, even if that means acting the responsible adult and going back to his old high school to meet Dexter Weston, the hot math teacher who can make even algebra interesting. Sparks fly between the two of them, but with his dependence on Tate, Skylar isn’t free to follow his heart. He wants what is best for Evie, but can he pass up the chance to find love that heals instead of harms?
Warning: This book contains scenes of domestic violence/abuse that some may find triggering to read.
Necropolis, a city of mythical creatures, magic, and the occasional miracle, is host to a vicious power struggle between two prominent families.
The only solution is an alliance—an arranged marriage—uniting two men born to hate one another.
Thanos Right, the heir to the Moroii empire, agrees to wed Everett Dawson, the youngest son of the Vârcolac Clan, in place of his sister Sophia. A fragile trust builds between the young couple, but even as they explore their relationship the possibility of treachery is never far away.
In this high stakes game of love and hate, peace and war, loyalty and betrayal, Thanos and Everett will need more than a signed wedding certificate and an amicable introduction if they expect their marriage to end the centuries of bloodshed.
Sacrifices must be made on the altar of peace. The question isn’t when or what—but who?
Ben’s life appears perfect. He has a career to shine in and a beautiful family. But his marriage is over, and being a small-town cop is turning into a dead-end job.
Hot-headed troublemaker Donnie is used to being side-eyed by the fuzz. Getting dragged into the station for a crime he didn’t commit is no big surprise – but a cop who gives a damn sure is.
Ben has no clue how much a second encounter with the secretive redneck will shake up his life. Donnie’s sullen vulnerability arouses a passion Ben hasn’t felt for a long time. Soon, nothing matters but helping Donnie fight his demons. Can they carve a new life together out of the ashes?
Beto Hernandez’s objective: Break the human trafficking ring plaguing Skagit once and for all. He’s not in Skagit to make friends—he’s kicking ass first and taking names later. Maybe. He crosses paths with an intriguing and sexy man, the first in years to spark Beto’s interest. It’s ultimate bad timing, though; no one in Skagit can be trusted.
Who is Carsten Quinn, and where does he fit in Beto’s investigation? Beto tries to stay away from Carsten but their undeniable chemistry keeps him close.
Carsten Quinn survived years in hell to return to “normal life,” and he has his own mission in Skagit. The only problem is he’s hiding, not living anything like a normal life. When his closest friend is severely injured it’s up to Carsten to finish gathering evidence to put some very bad people behind bars and he knows all too well he can’t trust anyone, especially not the law.
Ironically, the law appears anyway, in the form of a sexy cop he can’t stop thinking about; when Carsten’s past comes back with a vengeance, he has no one else to turn to.
Is happiness too much to hope for? Are Beto and Carsten too different and too broken to trust anyone, much less each other?
Terry and Phil’s D/s journey begins in Role Play:
Some like it rough…
Hollywood photographer, Terry Patterson, loves his job. But when it comes to romance, there is none – at least not anymore. Ever since producer, Phil Watts, abruptly left for a high-paying job in Toronto, Terry’s been determined to move on with his life.
Phil has learned the hard way that work and career is one thing, having someone by your side to love and cherish is another. Now that’s he’s back in town, Phil is ready to take the knowledge he gained while being trained as a lifestyle Master, and is determined to claim his boy.
As they discuss whether or not Terry is willing to try a relationship as a sub to Phil’s Dom, one thing in particular piques Terry’s curiosity. Phil mentions role play, and there’s a fantasy Terry has always had, but been way too embarrassed to ever confess. Will Phil agree to satisfy Terry’s darkest fantasy?
Their connection deepens in Bondage Play:
Phil needs to show Terry some restraint…
Terry and Phil have begun what promises to be a very satisfying D/s journey together. Their rough role play was a success, and Terry is ready to allow Phil to have more control over him in all ways. But even Masters have doubts, and when things take an unexpected turn in Phil’s film production career, he worries that he’s not properly taking care of his boy.
Terry craves his Master’s control…
Terry now knows that being submissive answers a need within himself he’d never realized existed. Then Phil takes their scenes to the next level as he introduces Terry to more extreme bondage. But will the return of an old nemesis from Master Gerard’s BDSM gatherings spell real danger to Terry? Right as the Dom and sub decide to play with Master Gerard and his boy, Marco, the danger becomes even more frightening than they all could’ve imagined.
In Pain Play, Terry is ready for some pain that brings him pleasure:
The deeper Terry becomes immersed in a 24/7 dynamic with Phil, the more he realizes that he’s ready for them to be fulltime. Phil couldn’t be more thrilled when Terry confesses his desire for them to take the next step in their Master/sub relationship, and he decides to explore some of Terry’s soft limits regarding pain. Adding to his joy are the approaching holidays that include celebrating with their friends.
Surprises are revealed, forbidden desires are shared, and their New Year begins with a bang—which not only brings them closer to each other—but to their friends, Master Gerard and his boy Marco.

Meet Vincent, aspiring sugar. He’s scrappy, he’s mouthy, but he gets the job done. Vincent has big dreams, and he’s aiming for the richest men in Los Angeles to make them come true.

And Don likes Vincent.
And Don? Don has a lot of mansions.

The only problem is, Vincent gets a special stirring when he sees Elliot, and Elliot can’t stop thinking about Vincent’s infuriating hotness. And now that Don seems to enjoy both of their company, it’s not so easy to avoid those feelings, or what those feelings might mean.

Sugar for Two is an Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy. At 60,000+ words, it is the first novel in the Sugar Mansion series, featuring impassioned arguments, high fashion luxury, and one dominant real estate mogul. A Happy-for-Now MM novel in a Happily-Ever-After MMM series, this book has heart, lots of heat, and a little bit of kink.
I’m straight, single, and divorced. Two of those might change.
Being accidentally kidnapped could be worse. I get a trip to the Hamptons, a seat at a luxury wedding, and a week with the hottest man I’ve ever laid eyes on. Maybe I ought to fly private more often.
Zach’s no snobby millionaire, though. He’s got a good heart, and a body that makes it hard to see straight anymore. At this rate, it won’t be long before we’re tearing into each other like it’s our own honeymoon.
He’s a groomsman for his brother, but he needs some support of his own—the kind he can only get behind closed doors. He comes from money, and his family wants things to be perfect. But we don’t have time for perfection, and if we can’t bring this family together, Groomzilla might call the whole thing off.
The bouquet’s in the air, but I’m reaching for Zach.
Who hasn’t accidentally kidnapped a date every now and then?
My brother’s getting married in the Hamptons, and I need a plus-one. But I didn’t expect it to be a stranger who unintentionally boarded the plane. I’m sharing a flight with Barrett, but it feels a lot like a first date. He’s agreed to be my companion, and that means a week of chaotic pre-wedding events.
A straight, divorced EMT isn’t the kind of date my family is expecting, but then, I wasn’t expecting him to start sizing me up for more than just a wedding tux. Not only is he charming my relatives, he’s also making me think about jumping for the bouquet.
My family of wealthy hoteliers can be a handful. Barrett’s from a different world, but I’m hoping they’ll accept him—if this week doesn’t kill us first.
This wedding needs Barrett, and he’s the best man for the job.
Note to readers: This is an extra spicy standalone MM romance, heat level 10. Readers can expect several steamy scenes that will leave you breathless.

What happens when the person who changes your life is not only an alpha, but also a vampire?
Alexander is keeping watch over a special someone. But Declan, the omega he’s guarding, is human, and the alpha is undead. Declan wants nothing to do with the vampire, but Alexander is present for major changes in his life, and the omega can’t ignore him.
While the alpha mourns his lost humanity, the omega also grieves for something he can’t get back, and they form an unlikely friendship.
After a catastrophic event, the pair are forced together, emotionally wounded and unsure of their feelings. And when Alexander proposes a solution, his brother, Ambrose, a rich and powerful vampire and head of their coven, pushes Declan to make a decision.
Deceiving the rest of the world, they struggle with their past and avoid thinking about the future, until the omega learns the truth and fears losing what he already has. Craving emotional and physical intimacy, the changes allow both human and vampire to explore new possibilities.
Against the backdrop of a society where vampires administer the law are unexplained disappearances and kidnappings, missed opportunities, a troubled teen and a baby.
But when Alexander and Declan witness something they weren’t supposed to, it threatens the life they’d hoped for.
This is a 35,000-word, mpreg novel, and it’s the first of three books in the Flickering Shadows Series.
There are moments in your life that become part of you. They become so ingrained in your memory that you can’t let them go, no matter how hard you try. Some may seem small and insignificant when they happen. Others are so big and important that you know, even while you’re in the moment, that your life will be forever changed. For me, almost all those moments—both the small and insignificant as well as the big and important—were moments I shared with Chance Wyrick.
If I were in a support group for hopelessly pathetic gays, I’d have to introduce myself by saying, “Hi, I’m Andy Michaelson and I can’t stop myself from thinking about Chance Wyrick.”
From the time we met, when we were only six years old, and for the next twelve years, he was my best friend. I fell in love with him along the way. I couldn’t say exactly when it happened, only that it happened.
Words of advice:
Never fall in love with your best friend, especially if he’s one of the most popular kids at school, the best high school quarterback in the state, or if he happens to be your next-door neighbor.
But most of all…
Never, I repeat never, fall in love with your best friend if he’s straight. Nothing good can come of it. Trust me.
Our friendship was over before we finished our last year of high school. My best friend became my ex-best friend. I hoped to forget about him when I went off to college. But Chance followed me there. So did all the memories.
I tried to forget him. I did. But he was more beautiful than ever. He was the starting quarterback for Gilcrest University. He was larger than life. He was impossible to ignore. We hadn’t spoken in years, but the memories still hit me out of nowhere, and they still hurt.
By the time I started my third year at Gilcrest, I was beginning to think I’d never be over him.
As it turns out, I was right…
Chasing Chance is the first book in the Gilcrest University Guys series. It’s a full-length, “friends to lovers” romance novel. It has “coming out” and “first-time gay” themes, is stocked full of STEAM, heartache, and laughter, and it has a guaranteed happy ending. The series will follow the love stories of four college friends. Chasing Chance is the first of two books that will tell Andy and Chance’s love story. Look for book two, Catching Chance, to come out next month!
