A Sucker For Love Mystery

Private investigator Sloane Beaumont should be enjoying his recent engagement to eldritch god Azaethoth the Lesser, AKA Loch. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have time for a pre-honeymoon period.

The trouble starts with a deceptively simple missing persons case. That leads to the discovery of mass kidnappings, nefarious secret experiments, and the revelation that another ancient god is trying to bring about the end of the world by twisting humans into an evil army.

Just another day at the office.

Sloane does his best to juggle wedding planning, stopping his fiancé from turning the mailman inside out, and meeting his future godly in-laws while working the case, but they're also being hunted by a strange young man with incredible abilities. With the wedding date looming closer, Sloane and Loch must combine their powers to discover the truth—because it’s not just their own happy-ever-after at stake, but the fate of the world….

Session drummer Sage Nakamura puts his trust fund where his heart is and starts his own band in Japan—Kashi-sei, Japanese for “visibility.” Tired of his favorite J-pop bands imploding over even a hint of same-sex attraction, Sage decides to take sponsorship out of the equation. He hopes his band will become a safe haven that validates diversity in gender identity and orientation. But he’ll need some help to make his endeavor successful.

Mangaka Ikeda Daiki lives a comfortable, if lonely, life in Tokyo. When he gets the opportunity to work with a band as it is forming, developing the products from the beginning—starting with a manga—he leverages his platform for more creative freedom.

At Sage’s insistence, Daiki helps him choose band members and navigate the finer points of Japanese culture. But the two have more than business goals in common. Mutual admiration develops into friendship, attraction, and a relationship full of firsts for both of them.

But as the band prepares for their debut, Sage, who has never played before a live audience, gets debilitating stage fright. How can Daiki and the band help him through it and keep his dream alive?

Every Winter Solstice, the Emerald Kingdom sends the dreaded Ice King a sacrifice—a corrupt soul, a criminal, a deviant, or someone touched by magic. Prince Reardon has always loathed this tradition, partly because he dreams of love with another man instead of a future queen.

Then Reardon’s best friend is discovered as a witch and sent to the Frozen Kingdom as tribute.

Reardon sets out to rescue him, willing to battle and kill the Ice King if that’s what it takes. But nothing could prepare him for what he finds in the Frozen Kingdom—a cursed land filled with magic… and a camaraderie Reardon has never known. Over this strange, warm community presides the enigmatic Ice King himself, a man his subjects call Jack. A man with skin made of ice, whose very touch can stop a beating heart.

A man Reardon finds himself inexplicably drawn to.

Jack doesn’t trust Reardon. But when Reardon begins spending long days with him, vowing to prove himself and break the curse, Jack begins to hope. Can love and forgiveness melt the ice around Jack’s heart?

A Long Con Adventure

A true protector will guard your heart before his own.

Hunter Rutledge saw one too many people die in his life as mercenary muscle to go back to the job, so he was conveniently at loose ends when Josh Salinger offered him a place in his altruistic den of thieves.

Hunter is almost content having found a home with a group of people who want justice badly enough to steal it. If only one of them didn’t keep stealing his attention from the task at hand….

Superlative dancer and transcendent thief Dylan “Grace” Li lives in the moment. But when mobsters blackmail the people who gave him dance—and the means to save his own soul—Grace turns to Josh for help.

Unfortunately, working with Josh’s crew means working with Hunter Rutledge, and for Grace, that’s more dangerous than any heist.

Grace’s childhood left him thinking he was too difficult to love—so he’s better off not risking his love on anyone else. Avoiding commitment keeps him safe. But somehow Hunter’s solid, grounding presence makes him feel safer.  Can Grace trust that letting down his guard to a former mercenary doesn’t mean he’ll get shot in the heart?

Série Love’s Charter Tome 2

Pour atteindre le bonheur, ils devront trouver le courage d’être des hommes.

Second du capitaine d’un bateau de pêche, Billy Ray rencontre beaucoup de gens, mais personne ne l’a jamais mis aussi mal à l’aise que Skippy – parce qu’il est attiré par cet homme autant que la lune crée les marées, et il est presque aussi impuissant à lui résister. Billy Ray a passé sa vie à nier qui il était vraiment afin d’éviter les foudres de son religieux de père, et il ne peut permettre à personne de voir au travers de cette façade soigneusement construite.

Skippy n’est en ville que pour affaires et devra rentrer à Boston dès qu’il aura fini. Après tout, son père a certaines attentes le concernant, et son séjour en Floride n’en fait pas partie. Mais il n’avait pas compté sur le fait que Billy Ray puisse retenir son attention et toucher son cœur.

Billy Ray ne réalise pas tout ce que Skippy et lui ont en commun. Ils vivent tous les deux pour plaire à leurs pères au lieu de suivre leurs propres rêves – un fait qui devient douloureusement évident quand ils apprennent à se connaître et se rendent compte à quel point ils se sont privés des joies de la vie. Même s’ils ne peuvent pas changer le passé, ils peuvent se tourner vers un avenir ensemble et rattraper le temps perdu – à condition d’être prêts à faire face aux conséquences de choisir leurs propres voies.

For Jax Hall, all-but-dissertation in mathematics, slinging drinks and serenading patrons at a piano bar is the perfect remedy for months of pandemic anxiety. He doesn’t expect to end up improvising on stage with pop violinist Aria Darvish, but the attraction that sparks between them? That’s a mathematical certainty. If he can get Ari to act on it, even better.

Ari hasn’t written a note, and his album deadline is looming. Then he meets Jax, and suddenly he can’t stop the music. But Ari doesn’t know how to interpret Jax’s flirting—is making him a drink called Sex with the Bartender a serious overture?

Jax jumps in with both feet, the only way he knows how. Ari is wonderful, and Jax loves having a partner who’s on the same page. But Ari’s struggles with his parents’ expectations, and Jax’s with the wounds of his past, threaten to unbalance an otherwise perfect equation. Can they prove their double act has merit, or does it only work in theory?

When nerdy art student Noah Andrews turned his love of wine into a way to make money during grad school, he didn’t anticipate it would lead to a summer gig cataloguing the cellars at an aging Tuscan estate.

He definitely didn’t expect to be rooming with the hunky contractor fixing up the villa.

Ostensibly, Christian Caravalli is in Italy helping his grandfather run his restoration business. In reality, he’s avoiding his parents’ divorce and the fact that he has no direction in life. When Noah lands in his lap, his summer gets a lot more interesting.

Noah’s attracted to Christian, but the man tests his boundaries. He can’t cook, he walks around half-dressed, and Noah’s bathroom, which was supposed to be ready when he arrived, is still a shambles.

Unfortunately, this summer fling has an expiration date. Neither Christian nor Noah can afford to stay in the villa forever. Will their love grow into something lasting, or is it destined to be only a sweet memory?
