Releasing October 6, 2021


It was supposed to be a fling.
A one-night stand.
Then Jordan Kovacs asked for more.
A date. I don't date—I f*ck.
While he showered, I left.
The end.
Or so I thought. I have a problem.
My ex-f*ck buddy is getting married.
And I can't get out of going—long story.
I need an arrangement I can understand from a man who only had me for a night.
But Jordan has other plans for me.
Things that will tip the scales in his favor.


A tryst was what she was looking for.
A date was what I wanted.
A chance.
I understand Maria Tavares.
She's a beautiful lie.
Now she needs something from me: a favor.
So I'll function in a way she can understand: an arrangement.
Three months.
All in. Strings attached. No interferences. Titles exchanged.
The plan is simple, with only one rule—veritas.
Let's see if Maria's ex-f*ck buddy understands that, too.

Never Really Over by Jennifer Van Wyk

Title: Never Really Over Author: Jennifer Van Wyk Genre: Small Town, Single Parent, Second Chance, Blue collar hero (Farmer), Contemporary Romance Release Date: September 30

Cover designed by Kate at Y’all That Graphic


Jennifer Van Wyk’s Never Really Over will leave you searching for your own farm boy. This small town single dad romance is about forgiveness and a love that stands the test of time. With one phone call, Colt’s life turned completely upside down, inside out, backwards, spiraled out of control… however you want to say it. He was used to life not going as planned, but this little detour changed his life forever and completely terrified him. But he didn’t have time to dwell on the fact he was now this toddler’s one and only parent. His little niece Poppy needed him and he was determined not to fail her. But life continued to throw him curve balls. While trying to learn his new normal, Layla, his first and only love, breezed back into his life. That might have excited him, but he hadn’t counted on the fact that she’d changed over the years. Gone was the girl he fell in love with, replaced with someone he could barely stand to be around. Colt didn’t have time to deal with a snobby, bitter grump when he had a farm to run and a toddler to raise. She may still be the most gorgeous person he’d ever laid eyes on, but to him, beauty was about more than what was on the surface. The problem was, he was starting to wonder if the new Layla wasn’t really who she was. He tried to resist her but sometimes love is never really over.

Forged in Magical Fire by Brenda Trim is NOW LIVE!
Read it #free with your #KindleUnlimited subscription.


Guess who just discovered her Phoenix lineage? I’d rather go back to just being cursed. Hot flashes have nothing on bursting into flames…

Imps are taking over Cottlehill Wilds, wreaking havoc at every turn. Chasing them around my store with unreliable magic, while not alerting the mundies, is harder than raising twins.

To make matters worse, the target on my back has never been bigger since I killed the demon our resident psychopath summoned. Car bombs and ambush hoards? Someone really wants me out of the picture.

And wouldn’t you know that Fate has decided to mess with whatever is developing between me and Thanos just as I finally decided to open up to him.

Bad news for all the haters: it’s going to take more than a car bomb, a trip to the Underworld, and a dip in the River Lethe to get under my lightly wrinkled skin. With a top-of-the-line moisturizer and a fully charged fire extinguisher, I’ve got this too.

A Touch of Brimstone by McKenzie Hunter

A Touch of Brimstone
McKenzie Hunter
(Magic of the Damned, #1)
Publication date: August 19th 2021
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, New Adult

They say you should never make a deal with the devil, but what about with the Prince of the Underworld?

Fresh off a breakup and an eviction, I started my day like any other: a book in one hand, a coffee in the other, and faking that can-do attitude inspirational memes are made of. I was ready to take on the world—and I did.
Unfortunately, it was the Underworld.

One freak accident later, Im standing face to face with the sexy-as-sin and dangerously powerful Prince of the Underworld. He has a few burning questions for me—like how a mere human unlocked the door to the Underworlds prison and released its prisoners.

Id sure as hell like to know, too, because I have no freaking clue.

Now, instead of a forgettable bookstore clerk, Im newly famous for doing the impossible. The wrong people want to thank me, and the rest want me dead. Spoiler alert: The Dark Prince definitely doesnt want to thank me.

Ill do anything to get my life back to normal and hell do anything to recapture the escapees. We make a deal: Hell keep my enemies at bay, and Ill find a way to return the prisoners.

What could possibly go wrong?

Goodreads / Amazon


Ive been pulled into something that I definitely dont want to be in, dealing with people I hope to never encounter again. I want it to be over. I want to have nothing to do with this situation or you dreadful people.” I lifted my hand, presenting the markings. If working with you is the only way, then Im in. If we are working together, no more threats. I dont care how thinly veiled they are. You will not bully me. Are we clear?”

His expression changed but it was still indecipherable. Understanding? I dont think that was it. Amusement? Definitely. Portentous? It better not be.

His lips curled slightly into a small, tight, mirthless smile. He looked over his shoulder at Anand who flashed a grin. Ive been commanded to behave,” Dominic said to him. The laughter in his voice made its way to his eyes.

Little Luna.”

Its just Luna,” I shot back.

Luna. You are correct. I want to find the person behind this, especially if it is a Dark Caster. I know their history and the chaos and destruction they enjoy. It needs to be stopped. And to do so, we will have to work together.”

Id been abducted and attacked by a vampire, sniffed by a lion, interrogated by a witch, and nearly devoured—or whatever his intentions were—by a wolf. I had every right to be overly cautious and I didnt like the subtle undertones in his response. A limited alliance.

Author Bio:

McKenzie, as a child, discovered that her life could be a whirlwind of adventures by simply opening a book. To this day, reading is still her favorite activity. She has a fondness for fantasy and mystery, which is probably why she writes urban fantasy.

When McKenzie isn’t working on her next book she is usually binge-watching paranormal and comedy shows, maintaining her title as “favorite auntie”, or trying to create a tasty low-calorie pizza. McKenzie loves to hear from her readers. Feel free to contact her via her website, Facebook, or email.

A Barbarian SciFi Romance
Series: Xiveri Mates #7
Author: Elizabeth Stephens
Genre: Barbarian Warlord/Sci-Fi Alien Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2021


I’m wrenched from a five thousand year sleep into a new world. It was supposed to be uninhabited. Humans were supposed to have died off. Those of us preserved in the stasis tanks were supposed to rebuild.

But there were survivors. And now those survivors have formed factions. The leading tribes enslave those weaker and language keeps them apart.

Funny, because in my past life I was the interpreter and I intend to bridge the gaps so that when we escape, we do it together. But I have to get past the warlord watching me first.

Communication between tribes is unheard of. Forbidden. A death sentence. I should kill the little slave that dares defy this edict.

But the signs suggest something unthinkable. That this little creature is mine.

I need to find a way to get rid of her before she dismantles everything, escapes, liberates slaves, brings warring tribes to my doorstep…but to do that, I’ll have rid myself of this pesky little thing called want.

She makes me want her.

Taken by the Pikosa Warlord is a barbarian SciFi romance that is a complete standalone within the Xiveri Mates series. It features a dark, savage warlord and the brilliant interpreter who defies him, action, steam and a guaranteed HEA.

Ero hisses, “Halima.”
“Halima.” I blink and see waves, but they don’t belong to the river. They belong to the ocean. I look up and a man is smiling at me. He has my eyes and my stubborn chin, at least, that’s what my mother tells me. I’m crying but he’s chuckling lightly as he reaches forward and pulls the plastic bag out of my hand.
I’d been devastated to see so much trash on the beach, but my father just grins gently and says, “It resists. That’s how the ocean survives, despite all the harm we do to it. It resists, remaining unbroken. And though it is unbroken by us, it can break us so easily. There are too many droplets and, when they gather, they are capable of magnificent violence. Its calm now is just an illusion so be careful, habibty, with the ocean.
“Respect it, but know that if it can remain unbroken by us, then you should not be broken by this.” He holds up the plastic bag and stuffs it into his pocket. “Now come. Let’s catch up to your mother, aunt and uncle, and all your cousins. The family is waiting.”
“Halima.” I look up. Ero is frowning at me and the entire room falls away.
I waver as I come out of the dream and my slick leather sandal slips on a couple of the rocks. I fall back onto my butt, quickly pulling my toes out of the stream. When I look up, Ero is perched forward on the edge of his seat, veins in his forehead popping proudly. I can see his tension even from here. He opens his mouth, but doesn’t say anything, so I use the opportunity.
“You shouldn’t have done that to Haddock. It was my betrayal. I wanted you to sleep, not to die. I don’t want anyone to die.”
Leaning his elbows onto his knees, he sneers, “It is a bit late for that now, don’t you think?”

Elizabeth Stephens writes romance of the SciFi, paranormal and suspenseful varieties. Her favorite trope is enemies-to-lovers and she loves to world-build so much so that she sometimes gets lost in places that don’t exist.

One year into her author journey, she’s been shocked to see her books listed among Amazon’s bestsellers in their categories. Still, her favorite pieces of fanmail are from BIPOC women expressing surprise and gratitude that they’ve found an author who looks like them and (does her very best!) to write books that make them feel included.

Other than writing, Elizabeth also likes to throw very exciting-looking pottery on her balcony in Berlin where she lives with her loving husband (who bought her said pottery wheel for her last birthday) and her doggo, King Louis. Though she’s lived over half her life abroad, she still calls Seattle home.

Playing it Safe by Amy Andrews 

Playing it Safe
Amy Andrews
(Sydney Smoke Rugby, #7)
Published by: Entangled: Brazen
Publication date: September 6th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Sports

Donovan Bane loves playing rugby for the Sydney Smoke. And if that means he has to keep his sexuality a secret, thats a sacrifice hes prepared to make. At least until after he retires, anyway. He doesnt want to be the first pro rugby player in Australia to officially come out while still playing. The team doesnt need the media shit storm and hed rather be known for his footy skills. Which means no dating, no relationships, no sex. Nothing but playing ball.

Until one man suddenly changes everything…

Beckett Stanton is out and proud—and not looking for a guy who isnt. Been there, done that, complete disaster. Unfortunately, on the first day of his new job working for the Sydney Smoke, he locks eyes with Donovan Bane and hes a goner. Big, gruff, and athletic isnt usually Becks type, but for some reason this man is ticking all his boxes. And its clear the feeling is mutual. Its also clear that Donovan is not out, and doesnt plan to be anytime soon. Still, Beck cant resist being the man to show Donovan everything hes been missing.

For the first time, Donovan doesnt play it safe and allows himself to indulge in things with Beck he knows he cant have. But when their relationship gets serious, he knows he has to choose between the career he loves and the man he loves, because how can he possibly have both?

Why are you giving yourself early wrinkles?” He lifted his hand then, smoothing a finger along the furrows in Donovans forehead.

It was such a light touch yet Donovan felt it everywhere. Just as he felt the spicy accents of Becketts cologne wafting over him on a warm pillow of pheromone-laden air.

Because…I dont know how to…do this.”

This?” Becketts hand fell to his side.

I dont know how to do gay.”

Donovan…” Becketts warm chuckle, the way he always called him by his full name, set up home inside Donovans belly and lit a fire. Being gay isnt something you do. Its something you are.” Beckett tapped his chest lightly, right above his heart. So, however you do your life is fine. Really.”

Fine?” Donovan stared at him. Ive been ignoring this”—he tapped his chest in the exact spot Beckett had tapped—“since I was fifteen.”

Yeah, but not anymore, right? So you start from today.”

How? When I have to stay in this damn closet?”

Hey.” He lifted his hand and cupped Donovans jaw, and the tangle of emotions that were threatening to overwhelm him hushed at the touch. The first step is always the hardest. Finally accepting who you are, saying it out loud, often takes place in the closet, youre not on your lonesome there. Dont underestimate how far youve come.”

Donovan wished Becketts hand didnt feel so fucking good cradling him like that. Wished his voice wasnt so soothing and his words so damn sensible. Wished he didnt want to shut his eyes and just lean into all that calm rationality. It made him believe everything could be alright, that he could actually step out of the closet with this man and everything would be okay.

But it wouldnt be.

And now you get to choose what you want to do.” Beckett waggled his eyebrows suggestively as his hand slid down to rest against a bicep decorated in swirls of dark ink. What do you want to do, Donovan Bane?” he asked, a smile hovering on lips that had introduced him to a whole new world.

One that was still frustratingly out of reach.

Donovan shook his head as the weight of the unknown threatened to crush him. He backed up a step or two, and Becketts hand slid from his arm. He turned and paced into the living area. It was easy for Beckett—hed been living a full life as a gay man for a lot longer. He knew all the rules. All the dos and donts. The…conventions.

Donovan was utterly clueless.

Standing near the couch, he turned and faced the other man. “I dont know. Thats the thing…I dont know how it works with two gay men.”

Beckett gave a crooked smile. Pretty much the same as two straight people.”

No, I mean…” Fuck. Absently, he started cracking his knuckles. What did he mean?

Donovan,” Beckett said quietly, his smile gentle. Is this about the sex stuff?”

No. Yes.” Donovan stopped cracking his knuckles. Maybe.” He started to pace from the couch to the bean bag and back again. I mean…I dont even know how to do the sex stuff.”

A low chuckle slid from Becketts lips. “Oh, trust me, you know how to do the sex stuff.”

Donovan stopped pacing and glanced at Beckett. What? That thing just now? Thats what it is?”

Sure.” He shrugged. Sometimes.”

See, I dont know any of this. Im just a…big…gay…virgin. In every sense of the word. This is my first rodeo.”

Beckett laughed full and throaty. A gay virgin?”

Well, I dont know, do I?” He started to pace again, cracking his knuckles in time with the falls of his feet. I mean, is there such a thing? Because, I have had sex before, so Im technically not a virgin? Does sex with a woman count in—” Christ, he didnt know…some mental ledger?

The land of the gays?”

Donovan shot Beckett—who was clearly enjoying himself a little too much—an exasperated glare. He just grinned bigger as Donovan paced.

Do gay men consider other gay men who havent had sex with a man a virgin?” he continued.

Wow, you really do overthink things, dont you?”
