SPOTLIGHT!! Love over Gold by Talaith Gladvert
Love and Ambition.
The Drive to succeed, to be the best you can.
Every Olympian needs such a drive, needs to be obsessed with winning in order to have a chance of doing so. In many ways, it’s like Love: It dominates your life, your feelings, your perception of the world. It’s impossible to win Gold without it.
But what if Love and Ambition clash? What if the person you loved was also your opponent? What if your euphoria could only come at the cost of your beloved’s angst? Or vice versa?
Would you choose Love over Gold? Should you? Could you achieve the highest pinnacle of your career, the moment you’ve always dreamed of – if the cost was to crush your lover’s dreams? And, if you did, could your love survive?
Diane is a hockey player with a secret – she’s autistic. Travelling to the Netherlands to hone her hockey skills, she meets Katrien, a Dutch hockey player with secrets of her own. Seemingly unalike, the quiet, introverted, autistic English goalkeeper and the extroverted Dutch forward strike up a friendship which, after their first victory, becomes something more than friendship.
As their careers progress, they get closer and closer, their relationship deepening and blossoming. The difficulties of a NT-autistic relationship become obvious, especially when secrets from Katrien’s past are revealed. And then, when they are selected for their national teams, they’re both set on a collision course, which climaxes when the Tokyo Olympics rolls around, in 2020. Will Love win out over Gold?

Toby MacMillan lives for baseball and loves his hometown Atlanta team, which is owned by his grandfather, Ray.

Toby quickly calls things off, afraid of the ramifications of their tryst, but the two men develop a friendship that soon becomes more. After Caleb takes a fastball to the head, thought, their budding romance hits the news—and Toby’s grandfather hits the roof. When Ray MacMillan demands Toby deny the relationship, Toby must choose between the team he’s loved all his life and the man he could love for the rest of it.

Sometimes you have to leap before you look.
At least, that’s Austin’s philosophy on life. He knows better than anyone that looks are sometimes deceiving, but when he thinks he meets Mr. Right—who appears to also be Mr. Tall, Sexy, and Dominant—he’s ready to jump in headfirst. It isn’t every day that an alpha Dom falls from the sky and drops right into his lap, and he’s not going to question fate.
Looking twice at every situation has always been Silas’s motto, but he’s ready to make an exception for the firecracker omega who holds nothing back. Austin is outrageous, has no filter, and is utterly devoted to his friends. The fact that he’s also a submissive who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it makes him almost perfect. But when perfection comes with millions of dollars and paparazzi, maybe they could both use some caution.
Sometimes it’s just chemistry, but sometimes when the right person comes into your life it just might be fate. Figuring out the difference isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the effort if it brings you everything you always dreamed of.

Two omegas in love. A lonely alpha billionaire. And one hell of a blizzard.
Felix Valdez and Ollie O’ Connor are omega lovers who don’t need an alpha to complete them. Not even the handsome billionaire, Wolff Walker, who takes them in and cares for them when they find themselves stranded in the wilderness during a freak blizzard.
Sure, the alluring, enigmatic older man seems to have a heart of gold—but the jaded Felix knows better. He doesn’t trust alphas as far as he can throw them. It doesn’t matter that happy-go-lucky Ollie gushes over Wolff. It doesn’t matter that Wolff makes Felix’s heart race, either. Felix just isn’t open to a triad with an alpha. Ever.
Thanks to the blizzard, the three are snowed in, and become trapped in Wolff’s cozy log cabin indefinitely. In close proximity, soon their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist, and they find they can’t keep their hands off each other. None of them are looking for love, but a little bit of no-strings-attached fun couldn’t hurt, could it?
But as the snow melts, all three must come to terms with the fact that their winter fling is anything but casual. In the wake of the blizzard, real feelings remain, and Felix and Ollie must make a choice.
Is gambling their hearts on Wolff Walker worth the risk?

A Gay Christmas Romance!
David Cooper did not believe in happily ever after. He thought he’d let his chance at that pass him by—between work, being a single father and planning a Christmas party for his mother’s charity, his life was complicated enough. And then he has to ask Alex Capili, an old friend who just returned from the big city, to help run the charity event. Spending weeks working closely together, old feelings come up and David wonders if fairy tales really do come true.
Alex came home to help sell off his family’s restaurant. He was not looking for love, and happy endings only happen in movies. But nothing about this return trip home town is quite what he had expected, and David is still the best man he’s ever known: a good father, with a heart as big as all outdoors… and disarmingly handsome.

It’s not stealing if you’re stealing it back….
Ari had a game plan for life. Shoot people. Get money. Hang out with fellow criminal friends. He saw absolutely no reason to change that plan until one dark night in Memphis, when a little girl reached out to him with pocket change and a desperate plea for him to help her.
Adopting an abused little girl off the streets was, needless to say, not part of the plan. Ari had no idea what he was doing with an eight year old. He especially didn’t know how to juggle taking contracts and raising a little girl.
Things get more complicated when the mercenary, Carter Harrison, approaches him with a job. He needs Ari’s expertise to get into the very high-security museum, Knowles, and steal back Monet’s Water Lily Pond. The job isn’t an easy one. He’d need more than the two of them to make it happen. It’s further complicated because Ari’s not sure what to do with his new daughter while working this job.
And for that matter, how’s he supposed to handle the sexy mercenary?
Not child safe but child approved, children know best, Remi approves this book, idiots in love, but Remi loves them anyway, criminals make the best uncles, family of choice, Ari acknowledges Remi as the smarter one, Carter admits his own insanity, nothing blows up, Ivan is very disappointed by this, Kyou has PLANS for Remi, licking solves all problems, bedsheets, lifeskills, children should come with warning labels, it’s not stealing if you’re stealing it BACK, right?, the author once again regrets nothing
From A Menacing Tempest: When it came to defense, or offense when needed, Cullen McIntyre thought he was prepared. It wasn’t until he watched as monsters he’d never knew existed walked out of thin air to kill members of his family, twice, that Cullen realized how wrong he’d been. By the third time he’d come face to face with those determined to kill him and the rest of his family for doing their duty, Cullen knew he needed help, and lots of it.
The moment Ulf laid eyes on Cullen, he’d been enthralled by the man’s resolve to protect what was left of his family. Being shot and left for dead by Cullen should have cooled his desire for the fiery man, but it only made him want him more. By the time he caught up to Cullen, Ulf knew, without a doubt, the druid was destined to be his. Now he just needed to convince Cullen of that.
As Cullen and Ulf join their friends to fight the monsters from the realm of the Fae, they find there is a new threat waiting to get through the Veil. A threat they might not be able to defeat. Will Ulf & Cullen get their chance at happily ever after, or will the Fae finally succeed in their quest to destroy the veil?
