Sandrine Gasq-Dion - 2016
    Years ago, sensitive Jude Brooks got tired of watching junior high life through the vents in his locker. Unfortunately, handsome Hayden Cox’s favorite pastime was putting him in there. When Jude’s werewolf friends torment Hayden for being human, he takes it out on distractingly beautiful Jude. A lot. Tired of having his son picked on, pack member Henry Cox moves his family away. “Cox the cock” is gone – so why does Jude feel disappointment mixed with his exhilaration? In another city, Hayden is finally being accepted – so why is he constantly haunted by the memory of mesmerizing violet eyes? Fast-forward to a meeting as adults, and the air is so thick with tension and anger that it can be grabbed and shaped into adorable animals. Jude’s rage toward his nemesis has boiled over and nothing Hayden can do or say will make it go away. Hayden’s efforts to make peace convince everyone but Jude he’s a changed man. In fact, he’s a werewolf now and he wants nothing more than for Jude to forgive him. Jude wants nothing more than to ignore Cox the cock and be taken seriously as a protector of the pack. If longing looks and lustful thoughts are anything to go by, this situation is far from resolved. Is Jude’s best friend really dating Hayden? And why does he care? Can he ever completely trust the person who spent years treating him like an algebra book? Will a survival test in Siberia and a stunning revelation bring them together or tear them farther apart? Maybe they’ll both be taught a lesson about love. BROKEN BONDS: For years, Jackson Murphy and Jonas Brooks have been dancing around each other in a waltz of uncertainty and longing. One unexpected kiss meant to comfort rattles the two alphas, but neither is willing to make the first move. Now, their meddling packs are conniving to force the two alphas to see what they truly share — a bond of love. A reconnaissance mission to Siberia brings more confusion as Jonas’ deepest secret is revealed, and a startling revelation threatens to destroy their relationship before it even starts. John Quinton has been without a wife for more than twenty years, still grieving her sudden death. An assignment to Siberia to find a missing alpha plants him squarely in the path of one of the most feared feral female werewolves in the Siberian enclosure. But things aren't always as they seem. Just as John dares to care again, his hopes and dreams are smashed. By a simple bond. FORBIDDEN:Jesse Salvatore has had it. He's the youngest of three brothers -- and the only one born without the werewolf gene. Because he's human, his brothers, Jaxon and Justice, treat him like he's helpless. They constantly battle deadly rogue wolves and won't let him anywhere near the fight. When he meets Noah King, he knows he's found his soulmate in the werewolf and soldier. Just as life seems to be brightening, big brother Justice forbids Jesse to see Noah. The two men sneak time together when they can, but it's not enough. More than a year later, the rogues have targeted Jesse and Justice has no choice but to let Noah protect him. Noah King has never been in love. One-night stands are more his style. But the first time he sees Jesse Salvatore, his world is flipped upside down by the hot blond-haired, green-eyed human. What's not to love? Jesse is sweet, smart, gorgeous and bad-ass. Only one thing stands in their way: Justice Salvatore. When Jesse's life is threatened, Noah is entrusted with keeping him safe. Of course, no plan is ever fool-proof, and a mission to protect one man changes the lives of many.

Whatever. He’s still a creep and not worth your time. “Wonderful. Feel free to forget the whole thing happened,” he said and Truman snorted. “I’m sure that won’t be a problem for you. Just pretend I’m another groupie or desperate fan you hooked up with,” he said and Lex laughed in disbelief. “You don’t know a thing about me!” He said and Truman gave him a bored look as he waited. Lex pushed away from the desk and halted Truman before he could pace down the aisle. “I don’t think I could count on one hand how many times I’ve hooked up with guys I wasn’t actually dating,” he said and Truman shrugged. “You’re a rock star with morals or a romantic. That’s kind of surprising but that doesn’t make this any less messed up,” he said and Lex couldn’t tear his eyes away from Truman’s lips or stop smelling him. His body felt like it was being pulled closer to Truman’s and his hands reached for his face on their own. Truman’s eyelids fell and a soft moan slipped from his throat as his head tilted. Their lips brushed and they were still as time stopped. Truman’s chest pressed against Lex’s as he pulled in a shaking breath then they both gasped as their lips collided. Their teeth crashed as their tongues dueled and Lex’s hands gripped at Truman’s shoulders and neck and swept through his hair as he greedily tried to pull him closer. Truman’s hands fisted in the back of his shirt and locked around his ass and Lex groaned as his hard-on pressed against Truman’s. Lex licked and sucked, desperate for the soft, minty warmth of Truman’s lips and tongue as they clawed and ground against each other. “Oh, God! Stop!” Truman rasped as he pulled his head back. His eyes were large and panicked as his chest heaved. “I can’t do this to Violet,” he whispered and he held onto Lex’s shoulders as he stepped back.

Hottie Scotty and Mr. Porter


R. Cooper - 2016

He spends a lot of time working out to look good, and from the slow way he talks and the frat house atmosphere at the fire station where he works, it’s easy to assume he’s stupid. Most people are happy to admire his body and assume that’s all he wants from them, and deep down, Scott is too afraid to try asking for more. Which is why sweet, romantic Scott has been secretly pining after Cole for months when some of the town’s nosier residents decide Cole has been single long enough. They have a plan to throw every successful, smart, professional gay man in a thirty-mile radius Cole’s way, whether he likes it or not. Their list of candidates doesn’t include Scott, and Scott’s insecurities prevent him from stepping forward—even when it seems as though Cole is asking him to.
