"Huck Cassidy is a cowboy at the Lazy L dude ranch. He’s a reformed bully trying to turn his life around and find redemption. One day Huck spots odd animal tracks by the perimeter fence. They’re massive in size. The discovery is soon proved dangerous when dead animals start appearing on the grounds and in the woods.

Séraphin Deschamps is a swan shifter, an exotic dancer, and a guest of the pariah pack. He’s sent to safety at the ranch where he encounters a handsome cowboy—who happens to be his mate.

This is a contemporary M/M novella, and the themes are friends-to-lovers, slice-of-life, and new adult. This is the third book in a series of standalone stories called Before… and After.

description

Here's the blurb:

"It was only a game. Wasn’t it?

At a party one night, Charlie Dean’s childhood friend Will Tucker accepts a dare and dresses up as a girl: clothes, hair, makeup. Seeing Will that way incites a riot of confused emotions in Charlie—and he responds by lashing out. He never meant to hurt Will, and now he must do some serious damage control.

During a school trip by train, Charlie and Will share a sleeper cabin. Charlie intends to mend fences, while Will figures it’s as good a time as any to broach the subjects of attraction and sexuality. They want to get their relationship back on track. But after the secrets they both reveal, their friendship can never be the same."

Happy readings, and enjoy :)

QUIET WOLF AND HIS ROWDY ROOSTER is now available for pre-order in e-book formats by Siren BookStrand, and it's 25% off. The actual release date is Sep 6, 2017. This is a paranormal M/M novella about wolf and rooster shifters.

description

Here's the blurb:

"Sean Cameron is a pint-sized rooster shifter, but he’s got the sassy attitude of a much larger animal. He has a knack for getting into mischief, namely bar brawls.

Then revolts aimed at paranormals shift into high gear, and Sean is forced to seek shelter out in the boondocks. There he meets Ty Atwater, the Delta wolf of the Pariah Pack, an accountant who enjoys the quiet life. He’s the sweetest and shyest guy in the world—and Sean’s mate.

But Sean harbors a dangerous secret that could get everyone around him killed.

Add to that a tempting cowboy, a bunch of violent bullies, and a pinch of voodoo magic, and an explosive cocktail of epic proportions is ready to stir up trouble—with Sean the troublemaker at its heart holding a lit match.

AN ISLAND IN THE STARS is now available for pre-order in e-book and paperback formats by Dreamspinner Press. The actual release date is June 12, 2017. This is a standalone new adult and science fiction (contemporary) erotic M/M novel. The cover art is by Anna Sikorska <3

description

Here's the blurb:

"Sam, a geeky college freshman, has bigger problems than lusting after Marcus, sexy jock, college junior, and his big brother’s best friend. Chasing after a beanie caught in the winter wind turns into a tumble down the rabbit hole for them both—science fiction style.

Sam and Marcus find themselves trapped on a tropical island in the middle of a strange ocean on an alien moon. The sole structure is a ruined temple devoted to the art of love. Flustered, confused, and unable to return home, they need to figure out a means of escape from a hostile jungle teeming with dangerous life-forms.

In this tale where opposites attract and secret crushes are revealed, two very dissimilar young men discover they actually have a lot in common after all, but it will take their differences as much as their points of connection to survive on an island in the stars."

TRADEOFF is now available for pre-order in e-book formats by Siren BookStrand, and it's 25% off for three weeks. The actual release date is May 18, 2017. This is a contemporary friends to lovers and new adult M/M novella.

description

Here's the blurb:

"Milo Blake is a college freshman with his best friend, Jasper Reed. Their shared passion is cars. Milo will build them, Jasper will drive them. That’s been their post-college plan since they were kids.

Until the day Milo gives Jasper a chance to test drive a new sports car—and Jasper, in a daze, smacks a grateful kiss on Milo’s lips. That single spontaneous act changes everything. At least it does for Milo. Now, he sees his best friend in a different light.

So, he devises a new plan. He offers Jasper a mutually beneficial tradeoff: the perfect car for Jasper, the full gay experience for Milo. Essential car parts in exchange for a wide range of sensual acts—and zero emotional complications. When Jasper surprises them both and agrees to the audacious proposition, he and Milo are in for the ride of their lives."

Happy readings, and enjoy :)
