Title: Show Me Wonders

Series: Water, Air, Earth, Fire Book 3
Author: Riley Nash
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2022
Wait for me. Never let me go.

I fell in love with Jackson Moreno in hell, the only two survivors trapped in a catastrophic tunnel collapse. But when rescue comes, I discover he has secrets darker than I could have guessed. He disappears from my life as quickly as he came, and I can’t afford to chase after him when I have to raise my daughter alone.

I fell in love with Jackson Moreno six years later, on a bright summer afternoon, cleaning the lobby of a small-town bank. But he’s still running, and I’m struggling to keep my little family afloat.

I fell in love with Jackson Moreno in three feet of snow, in the middle of nowhere, after we lost everything. Because sometimes a tatted bad boy and a shy dad who loves knitting are destined to be together, no matter how many years and miles and memories pull us apart. No matter how many times we have to start over.

If we refuse to be broken, I believe someday we’ll find each other for the last time.

An epic, moving story of second chances and love that defies all odds, featuring a double gay for you relationship full of first times, hurt/comfort, a demisexual main character, and mental health representation!

Triggers (potential spoilers): includes a disaster situation with emotional distress, claustrophobia, darkness, and brief mentions of blood and dead bodies; also includes violence, drug dealing, mentions of suicide, and mental illness (depression, anxiety, panic)

 
 

Oliver takes a quick, ragged breath. “Would you like to go on a date with me?” he blurts, so fast it comes out as one word I have to piece together after the fact. As we stare at each other, I want it to be a ridiculous question, to be able to say what the hell are you on or what gave you that idea? But it’s not. I can only ask myself how could you let someone do this to you again?

And my only answer is the man in front of me, waiting with his chin up like he’s about to be decked. The mix of emotions on his face looks just as complicated as my own.

“Where do you want me to take you?” I listen to the words come out of my mouth like they don’t belong to me. I’m leaving. But not today.

His mouth opens and shuts a few times before anything comes out. “You want to be the one doing the taking?”

“I should probably buy you a drink first.” 

The man looks puzzled for a second, then laughs so loudly that he claps his hand over his mouth. He can’t stop smiling. “We have no idea what we’re doing, do we?”

I just shake my head, unable to take my eyes off him.

“There’s a bar about twenty minutes from here that’s having a band I like on Friday,” he offers tentatively.

“Okay then.”

“Well, alright.” He presses his hands to his flushed cheeks and huffs out a slow breath. “I guess that’s that.” Neither of us seem quite sure what just happened. It’s almost impossible to believe the moments that change your life can slip by so simply, in the breathless second between a question and an answer.

He picks up his bag. “I need to get back inside. See you later.”

“Uh-huh.” Before I can straighten up, he steps closer and pulls my hat off, setting it gently on the windowsill. His eyes flick between mine, the quiet look that holds more wisdom than he knows. Then he grabs one of my hands, wet paint and all, leans in, and pecks me on the cheek. Face burning, he steps back and makes a break for the door. 

Something tells me I won’t be seeing him again before Friday. Rubbing my sleeve roughly across my cheek, I go back to work.

 

Riley Nash, based in the rainy PNW, writes M/M romances about boys who fall hard, face the darkness, and never give up on each other.
Fueled by cute dogs, those weird Coke With Coffee drinks, and projecting my personal issues onto handsome men and making them fall in love.

Jackpot
Winning big has always been my thing. I grew up in Las Vegas in the harsh glare of the bright lights. I worked hard for everything I have, but winning at poker was my hobby. Learning to cater to the whales was my passion. Owning my own casino was my dream. But the reality is like the dead man’s hand. A jinx.
Until I saw her.
She’s everything I never knew I needed or wanted. She is sexy, tattooed, and not afraid of me. But she has no clue who I really am. She thinks I’m just a poker player. She doesn’t know that being my queen entails the royal flush. That I’ll take everything from her and more. I’ll take her dominance as my own and she will submit to me. I’ll make her mine permanently so she can’t ever leave me.
But she does and she doesn’t know the danger she’s in. What I’ll do to keep her safe. And what I’ll give up for a chance at the ultimate jackpot—her heart.

★★★★★ Amazon Review – “This book is hands down the best contemporary book I have read this year and I loved every word”

★★★★★  Goodreads Review – “I loved, loved, loved this book! I normally don’t read contemporary but being this from my main girl I had to!!!! And I got hooked from page one!”
 
Welcome to Prey Island. . .
 
Billie watches enough serial killer shows to know she’s in deep trouble when she finds herself kidnapped and shoved in a cage with dozens of other people. What she doesn’t expect is to be dropped off on a remote island, given weapons, and told to run.
The Hounds have been released and they say she’s the prey.
Now, Billie is being hunted just like everyone else on the island. Trapped with nowhere to go, she finds herself teaming up with others in order to survive. Four men set her ablaze with their touch and threaten to corrupt her every moral, each as dangerous as the Hounds who hunt them. She may not be built for Prey Island, but she won’t be going down without a fight.
This rabbit has teeth and the only way out is to
Play the Game.
Squid Games meets Predator in this thrilling WhyChoose romance. If you love K.A. Knight, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti, pick up Prey Island now!

 
Kendra Moreno is secretly a spy but when she’s not dealing in secrets and espionage, you can find her writing her latest adventure. She lives in Texas where the summer days will make you melt, and southern charm comes free with every meal. She’s a recovering Road Rager (kind of) and slowly overcoming her Star Wars addiction (nope!), and she definitely didn’t pass on her addiction to her son (she did). She has one hellhound named Mayhem who got tired of guarding the Gates of Hell and now guards her home against monsters. She’s a geek, a mother, a scuba diver, a tyrannosaurus rex, and a wordsmith who sometimes switches out her pen for a sword.
 
If you see Kendra on the streets, don’t worry: you can distract her with talks about Kylo Ren or Loki.

Title: Sin’s Betrayal

Series:  Ravage Riders MC
Author: Nikki Landis
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2022

Mack Ravage is an outlaw with a bad reputation.
I should know. I created him with every breath, bad decision, and regret I’ve made over the last twenty years. That’s why I shouldn’t want her – the sweet, pretty, young single mom that walks into my clubhouse. I promise her safety. I swear the club will protect her and her daughter. Hell, I even let her stay and give her a room.
She’s too wide-eyed, innocent, trusting, and too damn adorable for her own good. I’m not gonna touch her. I swear I’m gonna keep my distance. And then her eyes rake over me and burn like hot coals over my skin.
My Sergeant at Arms Valan thinks she wants him, but I know better. Her eyes only brighten when I’m in the room. Her smile grows broader when I look in her direction. And the heat – it cranks up a good ten degrees when our eyes meet.
None of this matters when the past decides to show up at our door. The Ravage Riders won’t be bullied. This is our town. We own it, and we damn well do as we please. Valan? Our enemies? The age difference? None of that matters.
I’m the president of this club. I take what I want, and I want Charlotte. Nothin’ is standing in my way.
 
*** Note: This book can be read as a standalone, but for best enjoyment should be read in order. It includes an age-gap, forced proximity romance, steamy scenes, biker slang, cursing, violence, dark content, a paranormal twist, and, of course, an HEA. If you like alpha males who take charge, this book is for you

Title: Flirting With the Enemy
Series: Harbor Highlands Series
Author: Gia Stevens
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 27, 2022
 
All is fair in love and promotions…
Until you flirt with the enemy.
Seth Taylor is a thorn in my side. I can’t stand his cocky smirk, know it all demeanor, but most of all, I can’t stand those ridiculous bow ties he wears.
But the number one reason I hate him…
He’s applying for my promotion.
Well, it’s not mine, yet, but he’s certainly ruined my shoo-in chance.
When we’re told interviews will be held during a conference in Colorado, I pray our hotel rooms are on different floors.
Of course, things never go according to plan.
A failed connecting flight, a road trip, and a blizzard force us to seek refuge at an isolated roadside motel in the mountains. When my only option is to share a room with Seth, I’m expecting the bow tie wearing, clean cut, black rim glasses Seth. Not this guy standing in front of me wearing only gray sweatpants that hang dangerously low on his hips and a cocky grin.
Maybe it’s the high altitude or perhaps it’s Seth who’s causing this lightheadedness.
Because when a game of twenty questions turns naughty, it doesn’t take long for the burning rage to turn into fiery passion.
All I know, the longer we stay here lines blur and feelings become real.
★★★★★ Let’s Read Romance – “The banter is witty, the dialogue delivered with a one-two punch that’ll have you laughing your ass off”
 
★★★★★ Goodreads Review – “If you enjoy romantic comedies, contemporary romance, a good amount of spice, AND getting emotional, this book is for you!”
 
★★★★★  Randi Reviews – “….boy did Gia Stevens deliver and then some.”
 
Gia Stevens resides in the up north of Minnesota. She lives for the warm, sunny days of summer and dreads the bitter cold of winter. A romantic comedy junkie at heart, she knew she wanted her own stories to encompass those same feelings.

When she’s not busy writing your next book boyfriend, Gia can be found playing in her vegetable garden, watching reruns of The OC and Gossip Girl, or curled up with a good book.

Title: Hate Games
Author: M Jameson
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: November 29, 2022

“I love everything by M Jameson and this book was no exception! I couldn’t put it down until I was through. Ryder and Ash were just gasoline together, chemistry off the charts. He was a perfect jealous/possessive alpha who loses his shit and can be an a-hole when he wants to.” – Goodreads Reviewer

I knew she was trouble. The kind of trouble you’ll never be able to run from. The good kind.
When Asher moves in with her aunt in the elite college town of Rothwell, all she wants to do is keep her head down and remain the wallflower she’s always been. But one encounter with the town’s badest playboy threatens to unravel her plans.
Ryder’s number one rule is ‘no connections’ but the new girl is getting under his skin. All his attempts to ruin her backfire when their hate games and sizzling chemistry collide.

“Does humiliating a woman make you feel like a big man, little boy?” 

“What did you say to me?” I tilt my head, annoyed and intrigued that the tiny thing has the balls to insult me. She frowns, and I’m irritated to find I like her frown. She repeats herself slowly, likely for emphasis.

“You have no idea who the fuck I am, do you?”

She scoffs at me. “Just ‘cause your daddy thinks he owns this town and donated some money to get a school named after him doesn’t make you special, Ryder Rothwell.” 

Oh, the girl has no fucking idea how many lines she’s crossing. I close the short distance between us in a few strides. The closer I get, the more frustrated I become. The girl doesn’t flinch. She just stands with her hands on her small hips, chin jutted out in defiance. My eyes roam down to the slim column of her neck, and my fingers ache to reach down and wrap around it.

She cocks a brow. “Boys like you don’t scare me, never have, and never fucking will.”

“You sure about that, sweetheart?”

“Oh, I’m all kinds of sure.” She stares me down, shoulders past me, and walks toward Cassandra, who stands watching our exchange with a stunned expression. 

“You alright?” Marcella’s cousin, A — something, asks Cassandra. I didn’t even catch the girl’s name when Dylan was begging me to invite her to my party, but now I want to know, so I can make her regret ever talking to me the way she did.

“I don’t need you to stand up for me,” Cassandra snaps.

“See there, kitten. Some girls know their place.”

She turns toward me. “Where’s that?”

“At my feet.” 

Her cheeks redden, and I turn away, climbing into my Wrangler. Oh, she’s going to be sorry. Nobody crosses me and gets away with it.

M Jameson enjoys writing steamy, taboo, and forbidden stories. Sometimes dark, sometimes angsty, but sexiness and HEA (albeit not conventional) guaranteed. Jameson loves to delve into the hard topics and pushing the limits, so if you’re looking for escapism and like your boundaries crushed, she’s your go-to.
