SPOTLIGHT!! The Nature of the Game (Stick Side Book 2) by Amy Aislin
Six years ago, an ultimatum forced Dan Greyson to make a choice that cost him everything he loved most. One of those things? His boyfriend, hockey player Ashton Yager. Now that they’ve crossed paths again, Dan isn’t about to let the opportunity slip away. Ash’s reappearance in his life is just the catalyst Dan needs to escape the rut he’s fallen into…and win back Ash’s trust and love.
Ashton Yager, once burned and now a little bit shy, didn’t mean to publicly come out as bisexual. But now that he has, he’s got to deal with the consequences, including the fact that it might’ve cost him his NHL contract. With his job on the line, he needs to keep his head down, work hard, and play the best hockey of his life. Rekindling things with Dan? That’s not exactly keeping a low profile. It’s also never going to happen, not after Dan walked away once without an explanation.
When a hurricane forces Ash to seek shelter out-of-state, he and Dan find themselves in the same B&B, where old feelings resurface. But with everything Ash has on the line, does he dare play with fire again?

On the Ice (Stick Side Book 1) by Amy Aislin
For college sophomore Mitch Greyson, determination and persistence are the name of the game if he wants to make it as a professional hockey player. A busy schedule of practices, games, classes, homework, two part-time jobs—and now, working with a tutor to help him pass the class he’s failing so that he can keep his scholarship—shouldn’t leave him with enough time to flirt with the NHL player in town. But that doesn’t stop him.
Placed on the injured reserve list until his broken arm heals, NHL defenseman Alex Dean is using the time off to be with his ailing grandfather and get a head start on the book he’s been commissioned to write. He doesn’t expect to get roped into a tutoring gig, especially not for cocky, smart-ass Mitch.
But Alex soon discovers that there’s more to Mitch than meets the eye…and he really likes what he sees. Only Alex doesn’t dare risk his NHL career by coming out, and a relationship between them would jeopardize Mitch’s chances with the organization too.
It looks impossible. Then again, the best things usually do…

Fresh Start: A Contemporary Non-shifter Mpreg Romance (Orchard Ridge Omegas Book 3) by Braylon Black
Elias Baker has nowhere to turn. On the run from his abusive ex, the twenty year old omega is hungry, homeless, penniless… and pregnant. But hitching rides from strangers and sleeping outdoors every night is a vast improvement over spending one more minute with the monster ex who stole away his dignity and self-worth. When a handsome small town sheriff catches Elias trespassing, the older alpha offers him help instead of handcuffs, and a chance to get back on his feet.
Sheriff Jaxon Hughes is well-loved by the residents of Orchard Ridge. The tall, sandy haired alpha is kind, diplomatic, and forgiving with the community he serves. But his dry sense of humor and folksy charm mask a painful past and a deep loneliness. After wasting half his life trapped in a sham marriage, newly divorced Jaxon isn’t sure where to go from here, or even what he wants out of life. Plus, he’s bored to death policing this dully peaceful town, where nothing exciting ever seems to happen.
When Jaxon casts his eyes on the frightened, vulnerable Elias, Jaxon’s big heart compels him to help the young omega in whatever way he can. At first glance, Jaxon and Elias seem to have little in common, but their effortless chemistry and easy-going rapport soon leads to a deep, affectionate bond. Both are wounded, and both find their salvation in each other— but as their friendship grows, so does their undeniable, powerful attraction.
Being with Elias gives Jaxon clarity, stability, and purpose for the first time in his life. Elias feels he may have found the alpha of his dreams— the one man who truly loves and accepts him for who he is. But Elias’s baby bump is growing bigger, and soon he’ll no longer be able to hide the truth. He’s terrified to break the news to Jaxon. After all, what alpha wants to raise another man’s baby?
Fully preoccupied with their new romance, neither Jaxon nor Elias realize that a predator lurks in the shadows, ready and waiting for the perfect moment to strike, putting not only their relationship at dire risk— but also their lives.
Fresh Start is a 78k word May/December, non-shifter, small town mpreg romance and the third standalone installment of the Orchard Ridge Omegas series.

Chasing Fate: A Secret Relationship Male/Male Romance (The Chasing Series) by JP James
I’ve always wanted to be a writer covering LGBTQ+ affairs. As a member of the queer community, our issues don’t get enough press and I see it as my job to shine a light on the many amazing things we’ve achieved. To help me out, my dad sets me up with an internship at his best friend’s company, which is a place that puts out a weekly newsmagazine. It’s perfect because I can use this opportunity to write about gay-centric issues to my heart’s content. But the problem is that the boss doesn’t necessarily see it that way. Dane, my dad’s friend, is handsome, forbidding, and dare I say it? A little scary. He’s used to giving orders, taking risks, and making money hand over fist. Despite being gay himself, he doesn’t want me to use his paper as a platform for our community because he says quote-unquote: “It won’t sell.” Since when has everything become about money? Have we, as a society, lost our moral compass? Even more important, how can I change his mind? On the one hand, sparks fly whenever Dane and I clash. But on the other, can I really be with a man who won’t stand up for the cause closest to my heart?
I took on Chris as an intern as a favor to my oldest friend. After Nick begged, cajoled, and pleaded, I agreed on a three-month summer internship for his son. With an emphasis on temporary. Chris and I weren’t even supposed to cross paths because as the boss, I don’t really interact with newbie reporters. Yet the moment he walked into my office, I knew that Chris was going to be trouble. The young man is lively, forceful, and hell-bent on writing stories that highlight the achievements of the gay community. Of course I support him, at least on some level. After all, I’m a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, and proud of the discrimination we’ve overcome, not to mention the acceptance we’ve achieved. As a result, I have nothing against his ideas per se, except that they won’t sell very many papers. Does that make sense? As a player in capitalist society, we have to market our wares in order to survive. But why can’t Chris understand my point of view? Sure, everyone knows that the publishing industry is in jeopardy and facing a sea change in terms of how we do business. But how can I make the young man see this? How can I help him understand that the world is more complicated than it appears, and that sometimes, we work for many masters and wear many hats simultaneously? Most importantly, how can I convince Chris that I’m worthy of his love when his commitment to LGBTQ causes may outweigh his affection for me?
