Showing Him the Ropes (Champions of Desire Book 1)

#GAY #Sports
When a Gruff Veteran Meets an Irrepressible Rookie, Who Will Come Out on Top?

Chance “The Chancellor” Gerhardt – multi-time champion and respected veteran of the locker room – worries he’s entering the twilight of his professional wrestling career. All he wants is one more shot at a championship title run. Instead, his boss saddles him with mentoring a hot, young rookie, Devin Jacobs.

Devin has admired The Chancellor for years, and he’s thrilled to work up close and personal with the steely eyed older wrestler. But while Devin learns from his mentor, he can’t resist admiring the man’s deliciously burly physique.

Trapped together in the intimacy of late-night road trips and shared hotel rooms, longing glances lead to whispered confessions of desire. Devin would love to bring a little warmth and sexiness to his hero’s cold and solitary life. Unfortunately, Chance refuses the rookie’s flirting. After years in the business, he knows their careers will be ruined if their relationship is discovered by the fans. But Devin won’t let that fear stop him from going after everything he wants – championship gold and the man he desires.

Can Devin find a way to prove to Chance that they can have it all? Or will their shot at love be defeated 1-2-3?

Warden (Elemental Paladins Book 1) by #MontanaAsh


Warden (Elemental Paladins Book 1)

Book one in the Elemental Paladins series

“Really? You want me? Come and get me, big man.” She taunted right before she turned and fled.
She made it one step.
One step, before she found herself sandwiched between two hard surfaces. The one at her front was hard and unyielding, cold and smooth against her palms. The one at her back was also hard, but dipped and yielded in the most interesting places. It was also hot. Very, very hot.

Planet Noglion by #OliviaBlack



AVAILABLE: Friday, May 4th


Eric Wilson volunteered to leave Earth to get away from his homophobic family. The only way he’d ever be able to have a life and fall in love was for him to start over somewhere far away. From the start, Eric knew there was no guarantee which planet he would live on. But, he never expected to go to the desert planet of Noglion. Eric doesn’t know much about the alien world. The only thing he’s heard are rumors, and those rumors terrify him.

Commander Gru Poez’iq knew he wanted Eric as soon as the beautiful human boarded his starship. But, in order to claim a pet, Gru has to get permission from his older brother, Finn. On Noglion, the males of the same bloodline share a mate. With his brother’s blessing, Gru goes to the arena and fights for Eric. After claiming the human’s body, Gru and his brothers, Khaun and Finn, must love and protect their pet, even if it’s from other Noglions, jealous that they claimed a human. .



Eric Wilson pressed his chin to his chest. He kept his gaze directed at the floor, afraid to look up, scared to make eye contact with any of the Noglion males on the starship. Eric shook, fear consuming him. He glanced over at the trembling young man next to him, Dennis Osborne. The poor guy was young, maybe twenty, and more scared than Eric, if that were possible.

“I’m not worth it,” Georgie said, his voice breaking the silence. “I’m sorry. I made a mistake. A terrible mistake, but you can’t trade them for me. It’s not right. Take them back to the ship. I’ll go to Noglion.”

Relief poured through Eric. In truth, he didn’t want to go to the alien planet of Noglion, not after everything he’d heard. The rumors about the males were enough to make his skin crawl. It was said that they kept their human pets naked, except for a collar and leash. And although Eric had volunteered to leave Earth to find a mate on a faraway planet, he wasn’t interested in being anyone’s pet.

“It’s too late for that, little human,” a deep, gravelly voice replied.

Eric pulled his lower lip into his mouth and bit down. The male’s voice affected Eric more than he cared to admit. Goosebumps broke out on his arms, and he shivered involuntarily, even though the temperature on this ship was quite warm. He’d barely caught a glance at these males before averting his gaze. But now, he had to admit that he was curious. Eric took a deep breath, steeling his nerves, before glancing up. When he saw the huge males, he let out a shocked gasp and his eyes widened.

The Noglion males were enormous humanoid-looking aliens. Their bodies were thickly muscled and massive, and they were all tall. Each stood at nearly seven feet tall and wore tan-colored loincloths, brown leather sandals that laced up their thick calves, and there were bronze bands wrapped tightly around their muscular biceps. Their skin looked as though it were covered in scales, from the top of their bald heads down to their feet.

The scales on each male were different, the diamond-shaped markings in various colors—greenish gray, olive green, and tones of brown. Their muscles were on display, massive and intimidating. And their eyes were yellow with thin elliptical-shaped pupils and bony brow ridges, pronounced and sticking out. But the most frightening thing about the Noglion males was their claw-tipped hands. The nails looked like sharp blades.

As Eric took in the sight before him, he quickly realized that the Noglion males shared similar traits with reptiles. It was slightly terrifying.

“You have a mate, and he wants you back. You don’t need to worry about these humans. They will be well cared for.”

Eric started shaking his head. He didn’t want to be cared for by these males. He didn’t want to go to Noglion. Eric took a step back. He wanted to run away, but he quickly realized that he couldn’t go anywhere. The Glecerian ambassador, Rett T’Rul, was blocking the pathway back to the ship and in front of him stood several rows of Noglion males. There was nowhere to run.

His heart started pounding rapidly, and his world spun. Eric’s knees weakened. Dennis seemed to understand. The other human reached out and grabbed hold of Eric’s arm, steadying him before he could fall.

“Go to your mate.”

The Noglion male gave Georgie a little push, coaxing him to move. Georgie stumbled forward. He looked a little worried as he walked toward his mate, Rett. They silently stared at one another and Eric held his breath, waiting. When Georgie reached Rett’s side, a Noglion male moved toward Eric and Dennis. He tilted his head to the side, a signal for them to follow.

Eric opened his mouth, ready to object, but one fierce look from the Noglion male and he remained silent. The words froze on his tongue, and his throat closed up, preventing him from speaking. Fear, unlike anything Eric had ever felt before, sang through his veins, making him shake uncontrollably. Dennis, the man beside him, held Eric’s arm as they were led away. Eric glanced at Dennis and quickly realized that the other man was wearing a similar expression. It was one of absolute dread. It seemed as though neither of them wanted to go to Noglion.

Length: 67,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Black Jazz Design

Everyone deserves a second chance.

Nate and his teenage daughter need a fresh start, so they move back to the village where he grew up. Nate’s transgender, and not used to disclosing his history, so it’s hard living where people knew him before. When Nate reconnects with Jack–his best friend from school and unrequited crush–his feelings return as strong as ever.

Jack’s returned home to get his life in order after an addiction to alcohol caused him to lose everything: his job, his driver’s licence, and nearly his life. He’s living with his parents, which is less than ideal, but rekindling his friendship with Nate–or Nat as Jack once knew him–is an unexpected benefit of being back home. Jack is amazed by Nate’s transformation, and can’t deny his attraction. Trying for more than friendship might ruin what they already have, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.

Doubting his feelings are reciprocated, Nate fears he’s risking heartbreak. Jack’s reluctance to tell his parents about their relationship only reinforces Nate’s misgivings. With both their hearts on the line and their happiness at stake, Jack needs to make things right, and Nate has to be prepared to give him a second chance.


A hint of cigarette smoke carried on the wind caught Nate’s attention, and he realised he wasn’t alone. A hunched figure sat on a bench by the church. Wearing a heavy coat with the hood up, their head hung low staring at the grass between their feet rather than at the landscape stretched out before them. A cigarette hung from bony fingers that protruded from black fingerless gloves. As Nate watched, the man—because Nate could see his face now—raised his head to take a long drag before stubbing the cigarette out on the bench.

A shock of recognition made Nate’s heart jump, thudding erratically.


Torn between conflicting urges to approach and flee, Nate stared at him, powerless to move.

How many years had it been since Nate had seen him? At forty-five Nate found each year passed faster than the one before. It must have been twenty years at least since he’d seen Jack, maybe more, and longer still since they’d spoken properly. Their last meeting had been nothing more than an awkward exchange of greetings when they ran into each other in the village pub one Christmas. The distance between them had cut Nate like a knife, so different to their teenage years when they’d been best friends, and almost inseparable.

Jack slumped forward again, letting the cigarette butt fall from his fingers. He put his hands over his face and Nate recognised despair and hopelessness, because they’d been his companions in the past. Acting on instinct, he approached.

“Sorry to intrude,” he said, pausing in front of Jack. “But are you okay? Is there anything I can do?”

Jack jerked his head up in surprise. His pale cheeks flushed as he shook his head. “Not really. Just having a bad day. You know how it is… or maybe you don’t.”

“I do.”

Nate studied him. The years had changed Jack, of course, but the essence of him was still the same. Sharp features, the strong nose Jack had always hated, even more defined with age, but more balanced now with dark stubble and the lines that the years were beginning to carve around his eyes and mouth.

As Jack stared back, Nate realised there was no recognition dawning on Jack’s face. To Jack, Nate was a stranger. Five years on testosterone had changed Nate to a point where Jack couldn’t see the person Nate had been before. Normally this was something Nate was glad about, but now he felt a pang of regret.

Our relationship was a sin, they said, but how can it be a sin to love so deeply?

She shouldn’t have listened to them.
Shouldn’t have left us behind.
You can’t help whom you love, and without Silvina, I didn’t give a damn.

A mafia prince without a cause is a rebel with nothing to lose.

My brother owned an adult entertainment studio.
He wanted me nowhere near it. Thankfully, his competition did.
I auditioned. Landed a contract.
It’s how I took my sins to a new level, my up-yours to la famiglia.

Until Silvina was kidnapped, and my world was thrown upside down.

About the Author:

I’m a lover of everything beautifully written no matter the genre.

As an author, I pen flawed characters. I seek the flip side where the soul hides, and once there, I want to be pulled out of my comfort zone by stories that take on a life of their own.

I’ve committed paranormal and young adult books. I’ve done contemporary romance verging on erotica, and I’ve dabbled in supernatural mystery. But my heart is anchored in new adult of the true kind: unapologetic young adult that’s all grown up, with conflicts and passions familiar to college-aged readers and people who remember those days like they happened last night.

Exclusive White Room Excerpt from USA Today Bestselling Author C.M. Albert
“Stand for me, Wendy,” he commanded. Her sundress dropped to the ground and Asher took in the shape and delicate curves of her body as she stood before him, completely bare except for her long double strand of pearls. “My God, you are beautiful.”
Vironica stepped out of her sundress and kicked it gently to the side. She ran her hands down her chest, over her pert breasts, and to her stomach. It was slightly curved from the birth of her daughter, but she was trim, fit for her age. Her legs were long, and made to look longer in her high-heeled wedge sandals with complicated straps running up her taut calf muscles.
“Dear God, please leave those on,” Asher said, pulling her close. “Those, the pearls, and that fucking sexy braid are going to give way to many fantasies long after today,” he growled.
Her lips curved into a knowing smile. “A woman has to have a secret weapon or two,” she murmured. “But one of us is overdressed,” she said, wetting her mouth with her soft pink tongue as it slid over her full lips.
She tugged at Asher’s baby blue tie, loosening it and sliding it out from under the starched white collar of his button-up shirt. “Don’t you look adorable in your derby finest,” she said, eyeing his frame appreciatively. “You come from good stock.”
She smoothed her fingers up and down his biceps after she dropped his tie to the sofa. He leaned over to pick it up. “Not so fast, Wendy. I have something in mind for this.”
She rubbed her naked body against him and shivered. “Tell me what you want to do with it,” she whispered before finding his mouth. She bit playfully at his lower lip, her hands trailing up the hard muscles that lay beneath his crisp white dress shirt.
He grabbed both of her wrists and held them in one of his large hands. “First,” he said slowly, wrapping the tie around her wrists and securing them, “I am going to tie this so your hands are bound.” He yanked the tie to tighten the knot he’d formed. Her wrists weren’t going anywhere. “Then, I’m going to pick you up, bring you to the bed, and have my dirty way with you. Do you understand me, Mrs. Mason?”
