BLURB:
Bear shifter Nathan loves his life. He has good friends, a job he loves, and lots of naps. He might be a little lonely sometimes, especially when he sees the deep love between a newly mated pair of friends, but his choices are limited in Glen Wood, at least until sweet wolf shifter Halian shows up.

Halian has been sent by his pack to find another shifter, one he thinks he might be a little in love with. When he finds out his friend has mated with another wolf, he’s wrecked, but that only lasts long enough for big bear Nathan to… sniff him. They fall for each other quickly, but no one is sure a wolf and bear can be mates, especially Nathan and Halian.

Firecracker by Kelly Jamieson

Will you give into the spark?
Firecracker by Kelly Jamieson releases on January 28th!

Arden Lennox’s charmed life may be in pieces, but she’d sooner get her hoohaw bleached than move back in with her parents. She’s no longer the prom-queen princess married to the football star. She’s a broke, penniless widow, and it’s time she stood on her own two feet.

An under-construction unit in a quaint Chicago brownstone is cheap (free), but it comes with an unexpected surprise. Tyler Ramirez, her brother’s gawky high school best friend, is now a smoking hot firefighter who spends most of his spare time in her unit hammering, drilling, and screwing. Usually with his shirt off—a temptation she has no intention of indulging.

Tyler can’t believe his high school crush is living right across the hall, or how fast his fierce lust for her comes blazing back. She’s still gorgeous—a little sadder, a little quieter, but still with the amazing smile and sweet body that fueled his awkward teenage fantasies.

Despite her best intentions, Arden can’t resist grown up Tyler but the sparks between them send her into full retreat. And by the time she realizes the heat between them could last a lifetime, it could be too late to tell him…

The Rebel and the Rogue by Grace Goodwin




Title: The Rebel and the Rogue
Series: Interstellar Brides #19
Author: Grace Goodwin
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2020



Blurb

Zenos, from the Astra Legion of Rogue 5, is on a mission to find an antidote to the deadly venom flowing through his body.  Without the antidote, one bite during mating will kill a Forsian’s chosen female. Zenos must acquire the serum at any cost, for like his Atlan cousins, his mating instinct will eventually consume him. The last thing he needs is a distraction, but one look at the defiant female bounty hunter and he can’t deny his body what she’s offering—a few wild hours of pleasure.

Ivy Birkeland’s entire ReCon unit was annihilated as a result of Quell, a mind-altering drug the pirates of Rogue 5 are known to distribute. A rebel to her core, her heart still broke when she was forced to walk away from her life as a Coalition fighter. Now she hunts a bounty that will allow her to catch the criminals selling Quell and avenge her dead friends. Free of the Coalition Fleet’s strict regulations, she makes a deal with an unknown Rogue 5 operative to gain access to his home planet and travels to Transport Station Zenith to meet him.

When Ivy’s smoking hot, one-night-stand turns out to be her Rogue 5 contact, every carefully-laid plan she’s made goes to hell. Because when a rebel and a rogue are forced to work together, sparks will fly. They don’t need the criminals to kill them, they just might finish each other…if they don’t fall in love first.

Wanting Her Stepdad by Sadie Baron

Title: Wanting Her Stepdad
Author: Sadie Baron
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2020
When Mom told me she was getting married again, I hated the idea of moving in with a strange man. Then I met muscular biker Gage, and I decided I liked him after all.
Way too much, actually.
With his big, clever hands, stormy eyes and strong, protective body, he keeps me safe from the vicious fights Mom picks with me. 
Now Mom’s left us and it’s just me and Gage. He has me purring like an engine whenever he’s close. The way his eyes caress me, I know he wants me, too.
We shouldn’t give in to our desires.
We really shouldn’t.
But I can’t help myself.
I’m burning up with need for Gage, and I’m going to show him just how much I’ve been wanting my stepdad.
Author’s note: With Mom out of the picture, this Daddy only wants his stepdaughter, and he’s going to protect her with everything he has. A short, steamy, over-the-top insta-love romance that will have you squirming beneath your plaid skirt!
His fingers tighten on my flesh. “We can’t, Hallow. You know that.”
He’s looking down at my breasts, and my nipples are standing out hard through my T-shirt. I still can’t read his expression but he’s breathing deeply and his body is getting hotter and hotter.
“I can’t be good for you?” I whimper.
Gage groans and his large hands grip my ass, his fingers pressing against the seams of my shorts. He pushes me against the garage wall and holds me there. He pins me with his hips, and I can feel his huge cock through his jeans against my clit. My eyes open wide as he thrusts up against me, rubbing back and forth, all the while his eyes on mine.
“You’re so fucking beautiful,” he growls.
The desire builds between us, our breaths synching, and I forget about everything else. The fact that he’s my stepdad, that this is wrong, that my mother could come home at any moment, it all disappears. I lick my pink glossy lips as I pant with desire, gazing into his eyes.
Gage leans in and bites my lip. I cry out loudly, and rub my pelvis hard against his. His cock is right over my sex and it’s making me crazy. I’m panting hard and rubbing faster and faster. It’s just like it is late at night in my bed except now it’s much better because it really is Gage I’m rubbing against, fast and intense through our clothes.
“Yes, babygirl. Come on my dick. Show me how good you are for me.”
As he thrusts, holding me there, one of his large hands slides up under my skirt and palms my breast. He groans as he feels my bare skin on his palm. His kisses grow deeper and his thrusts harder from the touch, sending my body into an ecstasy I have no power over.

Genre: Contemporary Western
Release Date: January 14, 2020



Blurb

When Dr. Samantha Smyth confuses the town’s sexy mechanic for a patient, she gets a lesson she’ll never forget…

Being a child genius might have made Sam a doctor by twenty-two, but she’s learned nothing about men. Her world is scalpels and scrubs, not silk and seduction. Sam is used to receiving attention for her brain, not her body, but when Mac and Hardin find out she needs tutoring between the sheets, they volunteer for the job. They’re diligent in their task, ensuring she’s an expert in pleasure… with them. Only them.

Mac knows he is nothing the beautiful doctor deserves. He works with his hands. He’s rough around the edges, tattooed and older, but he wants her anyway. So does his best friend, Hardin. They’ve spent years searching for a woman they can claim together. One taste of Sam and it’s not just passion they feel for their woman. It’s protectiveness. Possession.

When they discover Sam might be targeted by a murderer on the loose, they won’t let anything take her away. And their protective instinct reaches a new level when Hardin discovers he might just be related to the killer.

Beauty and the Beast, but with more daddy issues and violence.

Blurb When eighteen-year-old hacker Elias Stuyvesant ends up in a maximum security state prison, he’s woefully unprepared despite his time in juvie. On day one, he’s thrown in with a man known as the Santa Fe Slayer, Ambrose Hughes. Hughes is quiet, disfigured, and weirdly urbane. Elias was so young when Hughes committed his crimes that he has only the faintest idea what Hughes is in for. However, Hughes makes clear that Elias is his ideal victim type…and there’s no one to protect Elias from the much larger man with his prison-jacked body and that hard gleam in his dark eyes. Whoever paired them has it in for Elias; that much is obvious. Elias is terrified of Hughes, but he soon realizes the other prisoners are worse. If Elias is going to survive, he’ll have to choose the lesser of the evils: To preserve himself, he’ll need Hughes for his Daddy. And given Hughes’s skewed morality, they’ll have to fake it till they make it.  

  Excerpt Then the guard exhaled and stopped outside a heavily reinforced door set in a wall of solid concrete. It looked nothing like the cell blocks they’d passed earlier, with their steel bars or Plexiglas, open to the guards’ gazes and Elias’s curiosity. “This is…” Elias searched the guard’s face for clues, unable to finish articulating his question. “Yeah, this is it. You’re in with—” The guard licked his lips with what looked like legit nervousness. “Ambrose Hughes.” Elias blinked at him, not grasping the gravity invested in that name. Who the hell was that? The guard looked at Elias with visible pity. “The Santa Fe Slayer.” Shit. No. Shit shit shit. The Santa Fe Slayer was fucking crazy. Not that Elias knew precisely what Hughes had done beyond killing people, but if he’d been active in most other states, he’d be on Death Row. But motherfucking New Mexico abolished the death penalty, so Hughes was just waiting to die in prison, no hope of parole. Which meant, Elias quickly grasped, that he really had nothing motivating him to behave. What was one more murder to him? He was already serving like twelve consecutive life sentences. Was he one of those who ate people? Elias didn’t have time to collect his wits or steel his bladder before the guard knocked politely at the door and then unlocked it, pushing it open to reveal a windowless room thick with shadow. It was somehow even smaller than Elias had expected, with nothing to look at but a sink, a toilet, a little shelf built into the wall currently stocked with what looked like battered novels, and a bunk against the far wall, its bottom bed stripped bare, waiting for the bedding Elias carried. It took him a moment to realize the big shadow up by the ceiling was his cellmate. Hughes stretched languidly and started to slide off the top bunk with the predatory air of a panther. “Garcia, sweet man, who have you brought to visit me?” “New cellmate.” The guard—Garcia?—stepped back through the door and quickly removed Elias’s cuffs before shoving him forward toward the Santa Fe Slayer’s approach. Elias looked desperately back at the guard as the thick steel door clicked shut. It beeped as it locked. A small, barred hole at eye level revealed that Garcia had already turned away. “Hughes,” the man said, his voice pleasantly deep and drawling but edged with something unpredictable. Excitable. “Welcome to Hell.” Elias clutched the bedding to his chest as if it might ward off attack, or maybe just because he needed to hold something. This was why Edward Snowden ran. The government clearly sent Elias here to be murderated. Well, if he was lucky, he’d be murdered before this dude started to eat him. Though he wasn’t even conscious of moving backwards, his heels hit the closed door behind him, leaving him nowhere to run. In some ways, it reminded Elias of his first day in juvie, when he’d been so terrified, but at least then he was of comparable size and flexible enough sexuality to avoid becoming a target. Taking a deep breath, Elias tried to collect himself, put on a brave face, and lifted his chin proudly. “Do you prefer being called Hughes? I mean, if it was me, I’d want to be called Slayer. Or Hannibal or something. Not that you probably need a badass nickname, I guess.” Rambling. Fuck. Awkward since the man just kept watching him, Elias gathered his bedding in his left arm and offered his hand to shake. “I’m Elias or Stuyvesant, or, you know… whatever.” Hughes stared at him, dark eyes glinting dangerously in the low light. Something was wrong with his face, though it was hard to tell with how dim it was, but the texture was wrong, too reflective, scarred. He cocked his head to the side and said, “Maybe I’ll call you Bitch. Do you answer to that?” He didn’t take Elias’s hand. He just stood there, looming, radiating amused malice. “Um, well, I guess I could, but… um…” Great. So they were already going there. He was being fed to this Freddy Krueger motherfucker and there wasn’t a lot he could do about it. “I mean, this is prison. Won’t there already be a lot of people responding to that name? Wouldn’t want to step on any toes or cause confusion.” What am I saying? On the bright side, if he pissed this guy off, he might die quick. In the silence, Elias was aware of Hughes’s shoulders shaking as his breathing turned choppy. Then, with mingled relief and horror, he realized Hughes was laughing at him. With him? At him. “Stuyvesant then. No one else will carry that moniker surely.”  

About the Authors

Thursday Euclid

Thursday Euclid (he/him) is the m/m romance pen name of Rainbow Award winning author Will Craig, a thirtysomething disabled, fat, white, queer trans man from Houston, TX. For those who care, he is an Aquarius, and if you’ve met him, you probably can’t imagine him being anything else.

Proud da to two incredible queer, nonbinary kids aged 16 and 18 and honorary da to a 17-year-old black trans girl, Thursday spends a lot of time cooking vegetarian food in his Instant Pot while listening to Radiohead and dishing out advice and hugs to the younglings. Many of those scorching sex scenes were written or edited while obnoxiously loud teenagers danced to BTS in the living room.

When he’s not playing World of Warcraft with his handsome trans boyfriend, he’s probably watching horror movies or talking to his best friend and frequent collaborator Clancy Nacht.

Author Bio

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.

Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother. She currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, filling her empty nest with fur babies. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.
