lgbtrd-alittlesinaudioA Little Sin by Sionnach Wintergreen. Narrated by Anton Rush. [4h18m]

Sheriff Avery O’Rourke has tried to obey his strict Christian faith and lead a “normal” life. In 1923, in a rural East Texas town, “normal” means heterosexual. A cholera outbreak has made Avery a young widower, so he is married to his job. When a murder investigation forces him to confront his truth, will he finally be able to accept being gay?

Veterinarian Garland Sands has returned from Europe to take over his father’s practice. Struggling with shell shock (PTSD) and heartbroken by the suicide of his French lover, he resigns himself to a quiet, solitary life as a country vet. But the murder of the town doctor brings the sheriff to Garland’s doorstep looking for help with the investigation. Seeing Avery awakens dormant feelings. Can he love a man who hates who he is?

This isn’t the lavish 1920s of The Great Gatsby. This is the flip side of that coin – rural East Texas. No electricity. No indoor plumbing. No flappers. In 1923, the timber barons have left and racism, homophobia, and sexism thrive. A Little Sin is a realistic mystery with unlikely heroes and a timeless romance between lovers caught in a world where their love is forbidden.

lgbtrd-alwaysthreeAlways Three: A MMM Menage Coming Out of the Closet Romance (The Always Series Book 7) by JP James

I was left at the altar by my fiancée, but my two groomsmen are only too happy to comfort me.

Ricky:

I thought I was in love with Janine. She’s beautiful, sweet, and we’ve been dating since freshman year of college. It was the best day of my life when I asked her to marry me, and she said yes. But then Janine jilts me at the altar and leaves me like a fool before three hundred guests. I want to cry. I want to break down, and sob like a baby while sitting on the church steps. Good thing my groomsmen Hudson and Hayden are on hand to comfort me. But when their comfort goes beyond mere friendship, suddenly I’m forced to come face to face with the real Ricky who’s been hiding in the closet his whole life.

Hayden:

My twin Hudson and I have been friends with Ricky since we were tots. We defended him against kindergarten bullies and did our best to shield him from the ups and downs of life. But now, Ricky’s been left at the altar by his long-time sweetheart. We never thought it was going to work with a woman, but it wasn’t our place to question his sexuality.

Now Ricky tells us he has feelings. For us. Real feelings that run deep and strong, not to mention a magnetic physical attraction that pulses in the air. However, he’s conflicted because after a lifetime of living as a hetero man, the adjustment is difficult. He questions himself, thinking that his attraction to men might just be a reflexive reaction to his recent trauma of being jilted at the altar. How can we help him find himself and see the light? Living as a gay man is never easy, but Ricky’s emotional conflict is taking a toll and breaking our hearts. How do we help Ricky accept himself, when he’s afraid to batter down the closet doors for good?

When a damaged man stumbles on a second chance, it’s all too easy to turn and run. It takes a determined photographer to convince him risk is worth it all.

People deserve a second chance, right? How about a third or fourth?

But what if I can’t even admit to myself who I am? I was truthful once before. I came out to one other person, and he left me broken and scarred. He destroyed the boy I was. I don’t even use the same name anymore; I go by Trent now. But I survived the streets. I got lucky and I made something of myself. I’m happy, sort of.

It’s Angelo who lights up my life. He’s my world. My rock and my family. He’s always there for me. But I keep hurting him. I say stupid things, and I always keep him at a distance. Still, he knows me better than anyone.

And I want him. But I can’t let myself go there. Not again.

I’ve lived in denial for so long and it’s killing me. In my weakest moments, I reach for Angelo and when he slips into my arms, I can breathe. He’s my solace.

I’m not sure I want to anymore.

Rule one of hiring a handyman: don’t fall in love with him.

My new house needs some renovations, and I’ve got my eye on Ted. He’s a contractor from my support group with a hands-on approach and a million-dollar smile, and I’m thrilled when he agrees to help. As it turns out, this renovation isn’t the only thing he’s got in hand.

Every time he’s around, I go weak in the knees. But I can’t let just anyone into my life—I have a daughter to think about, and family always comes first. If Ted can respect that, then I might let him put his hands on more than just my house.

Ted may be the perfect guy for the job, but falling for him wasn’t in the contract.

TED:

If this professor wants to get his hands dirty, I’ll help him roll up his sleeves.

Can he build his dreams with a destroyer?

Beautiful young Elarhe, crown prince of Ayklinn, leaves his homeland disguised in rags because he wants to learn how to use his magic. He travels to a border city in the Grandimanderian Empire, where magic isn’t forbidden. But that land isn’t fond of immigrants; fear permeates its streets, and cruel things lurk in its shadows. One of these cruel things is a man who commands a terrible magic that—instead of healing or mending—deals only in death…. And Elarhe wants to rule his heart.

Maddox was drawn to Bryan the first time they met…but something was missing.

Best friends, maybe more, they did almost everything together. They had classes together…studied together…hung out together…They were inseparable. But as close as they were, Maddox knew he was missing something about Bryan. Some kind of missing piece that would explain so much. If Bryan wasn’t in the closet, why was he so quiet about his sexuality? If he was out, why didn’t he date?

Why couldn’t he see Maddox as more than just a friend?

Bryan had no idea what to do. As much as he felt for Maddox, he’d never be able to tell him because that would mean letting him in on Bryan’s deepest secret. Maddox is the best but he’d never understand what Bryan needed…how he wanted to be loved. Right now he has Maddox’s friendship and that will have to be enough. If Maddox finds out what Bryan really wants in a relationship, he might lose even that.

Oral Arguments: A Secret Relationship by Ian Finn

Am I falling for the enemy?

Matt

I was crushed when I found out my long-term boyfriend Gage had been cheating on me for years. All I can do now is try to put that relationship behind me and focus on my future career goals.

At my law firm’s outreach event, I meet Calvin, a quirky, cute artist, and sparks immediately fly. Things are going great between us and I’m starting to think, “Gage who?!”

Then I’m assigned at work to represent Gage, of all people, in a lawsuit his ex-filed against him. Gage is such a manipulative jerk that he specifically requested me, just to screw with me. And my boss won’t take no for an answer.

Imagine my surprise when I find out that the person suing Gage is my new flame, Calvin. Yep. I’ve been falling in love with the guy Gage cheated on me with! But Calvin swears he was just as wronged, as he hadn’t known Gage was with me.

We were both played— and are still being played— by Gage. And now I’m being forced to choose between love and career.

Can Calvin and I find a way through this legal and personal drama to our own happy ever after?

Calvin

I moved all the way from San Francisco to New York City to be with my boyfriend Gage. But after I arrived, I found out he had had a boyfriend here all along!

I want nothing to do with him and I give myself a year to see if I can make it as an artist in NYC. My only solace is in meeting Matt, a sweet, handsome lawyer.

When I find out that Gage is selling the paintings I left at his place on eBay, I see red. I have no choice but to sue him, which falls right into his evil trap to keep messing with me.

Imagine my surprise when I find out that his lawyer is my new flame, Matt! We didn’t know we had the same ex, just as we hadn’t known he had been cheating. And now we have to stay on the downlow so as not to mess up the case. Not to mention the fact that Matt’s boss doesn’t even know that he’s gay.

I can’t understand why Matt is representing the ex he swears he’s over as much as I am. I tell myself he was just a fling and that I don’t need him in my life. But I can’t seem to let him go, so maybe I should let my paintings and the lawsuit go, instead.

Will our love for each other destroy both of our careers?
Or is there a way to come out as a real couple and find lasting happiness?

Oral Argumentsis an opposites attract, enemies to lovers, coming out, secret relationship steamy male/male romance. Part of the Legally Yoursseries, it is a full-length standalone novel of over 60,000 words with no cliffhanger, it combines humor, heat, heart, and a very happy ever after.

At the Corner of Rock Bottom & Nowhere by L.A. Witt

Blackjack dealer and stripper Adrian West has lived in Las Vegas long enough to be numb to beggars on the Strip. Their destitution is a sad, ugly part of reality in a city where people win or lose it all at the tables every single day.

When a last second epiphany keeps him from finishing the job, he’s ready to live again… but he doesn’t have a dime to his name. He has nothing.

That is until a stranger takes him in off the street. Max may have hit rock bottom, but now he has a glimmer of hope and an unexpected friendship.

A friendship that just might turn into everything neither man knew he was missing.

— One day you’ll be pumping my gas —

Mike Miller’s life has gone to shit. The formerly popular high school quarterback now works at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. The last thing he needs is meeting the guy he used to bully at school and seeing him all sorts of polished up. James is now the proud owner of an amazing silver Jaguar and a self-made millionaire. It seems that the day couldn’t get any worse for Mike, but James ‘Lovelace’ Austin might just turn out to be his golden ticket out of the job he hates.

When James Austin meets Mike Miller, his high school crush and tormentor all in one, working at an old, dirty gas station, it feels as if the stars have finally aligned in his favor. He wants to finally get his revenge on the guy, but when Mike turns out to be gay, the whole afternoon takes a turn for the surreal. Instead of just humiliating Mike at his workplace, James decides to hire him for a weekend at a conference he’s attending. A hot guy by his side is the only accessory James needs to rub his success in the faces of his frenemies.

Only problem is, a gay Mike Miller might be too much of a blast from the past than James ever expected. If James wants his nerdy heart safe from the hunky jock, he needs to keep Mike at arms length.

When fifteen-year-old Romeo’s mother leaves one day and doesn’t return, he finds himself homeless and trying to survive on the streets.

Julian is barely two years older than Romeo. After running away from an increasingly violent homelife, he makes some difficult choices and ends up selling himself on the street to survive.

This is the story of their struggle to find a way off the streets and stay together at all costs. But when events threaten to tear them apart, Romeo knows he must find the strength within himself to help Julian (and not let their love story turn into a tragedy).

lgbtrd-dadswithbenefitsDads with Benefits (Fairview Single Dads Book 1) by Jason Collins

ELLIS:

There’s a new single dad in the group, and he wants more than just support.

I’ve got problems on the job, but I’m in luck: the new dad at my support group is exactly who I need. James is sympathetic when I tell him my boss won’t stop coming on to me. I’m up for a huge promotion, and I need help. Maybe a fake relationship will make my boss back off.

But when James offers to be my pretend boyfriend, I’m forced to start thinking about romance again. Acting is one thing, but I don’t do real relationships, and besides, he’s straight—or so he says. This relationship was supposed to be just one dinner, but we’re getting closer than I expected.

Straight men make the perfect fake boyfriends, but this romance doesn’t feel fictional.

JAMES:

It’s my first day in the single dad support group, and the single part is already at risk.

I came to this group for advice on single parenting, but Ellis has more to offer. He’s a good dad being harassed by his all-too-forward boss, so naturally I want to help. I’m straight, so it doesn’t bother me that he needs a pretend boyfriend.

But faking it turns out to be harder than I realized, especially when I get to know him better. He’s completely charming, and irresistible to boot. I want to veer off the straight and narrow with Ellis, but his past is holding him back. I’m falling for him, and I’m not sure how much longer I can pretend.

Our kids are playing matchmakers, and this fake relationship is starting to feel real.

This is the first book in the Fairview Single Dads series. It can be enjoyed as a standalone with no cliffhanger. Readers can expect a spicy MM romance with several steamy scenes.

lgbtrd-xesXes | Warrior Monks of Lehaviin 1 by Charon Stavros

Eric Lyle leads a rather unremarkable and lonely life. His journalism degree fails to land him a choice job, forcing him to carve out his existence writing outlandish stories for a rag newspaper. He is about as low as one man can go. When he stumbles on the story of a lifetime, and the smoking hot blue alien warrior who completely upends his life, Eric is not ready for the effect the knee-melting golden eyes have on him.

Xes of the Lehaviin Order is on a mission to bring back a bounty, dead or alive. After a crash landing strands both Xes and his bounty on a small world at the edges of known Galactic space, he is drawn toward the intriguingly attractive Terran. At first, his interest is out of curiosity. It develops deeper by Eric’s resilience under trying circumstances. Xes is powerless in the face of his strong attraction to Eric, wanting to claim the Terran as his own. For a warrior-monk, feelings are not an option. His life has no room for a mate.

With an alien criminal still on the loose, they don’t stand a chance to be together. Once Xes completes his mission, he will return to his Order. Between hunting down the criminal, potential discovery by the men in black, and the arrival of Xes’ Order to extract him when the job is done, there’s no time to discuss their options and time is running out. When Xes is gone, Eric will be alone once more.

Provided Xes can keep Eric alive, of course.

Xes | Warrior Monks of Lehaviin is a 30K, unapologetically steamy instalove 30k length novella with a hot, blue bounty hunter from another planet, a cute and scrappy Terran in the middle of an existential crisis, raw macaroni and time running out before the men in black show up to haul everyone away.

lgbtrd-complementarycolorsComplementary Colors by Adrienne Wilder

My sister Julia manipulated my life into a prison to keep me silent about our dirty family secret. Her greed made me a slave and circumstance left me with no way to escape.

Trapped, the only way I could silence the nightmares driving me to insanity was to wrap them in color, hold them with shadow, and stitch them to negative space with line.

But no matter how bright the pigments, no one could see my confession.

Except for Roy Callahan.

I thought he was just another nameless one-night stand in a long line of many.
But I was wrong. Roy could see past the façade of my life and through the veil color over the canvas. He could see what the world couldn’t.

And with him I’d find the courage to tell the truth about the boy.

The boy who kissed me.
The boy who loved me.
The boy whose name I couldn’t remember.
