Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance

Garrett Steiner loves his grandmother.
Really.
But when she rents a billboard in the middle of Times Square, hoping to find him a husband, he isn’t so sure anymore. Bad enough everyone at the “Crossroads of the World” thinks he’s a joke—now his face is plastered all over the news. He’s already in enough trouble with the principal of his school, who isn’t thrilled to have a gay teacher. It might be two dateless years since his divorce, but no way is he going to answer any of the thousand emails he’s received.
Except….maybe one. The long-haired man with the soulful eyes.
After the devastating loss of his husband, rock star Remi Angel has hit rock bottom. His career is in shambles and he’s spiraling. Fast.
With the media ready for the next juicy scandal, he leaves the limelight behind to return to his roots and spend time with his beloved grandfather. Seeing Garrett’s billboard ad, Remi sends him an email, figuring nothing will come of it, but hey. At least he’s trying.
Except Garrett does answer, and when they meet, both feel that special spark. It’s terrifying yet wondrous, a combination of desire and hope mixed with fear.
The fear of loving again.
Of coming alive again.
This wasn’t supposed to happen.
But anything can happen in a New York minute…even love.
In a New York Minute is a slow burn, rockstar, M/M romance filled with longing, doubt and swoony moments. There are love songs, a secret identity, a wise, bagel-loving grandpa, and an unrepentant bubbe who knows what’s best for her grandson.
It answers the question: once in a lifetime can’t happen twice…or can it?

Title: Let It Rein
Series: A Blue Series Story (standalone)
Author: D.P. Denman
Genre: M/M Romance, Gay Rom, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 17, 2023
The riskiest games are played from the heart.
According to the tabloids, Kasper Rein is a player on the prowl. Sturdy and sexy, with a voice of pure seduction, he’s seldom alone. The fans love him. Men and women want him. The paparazzi stalks him. He’s living a rock star’s dream — until someone wants him out of the spotlight.
The new man in Kasper’s life wants more than his fame. Mat wants his heart. He’s willing to battle his own trust issues for a chance at real love, but someone else wants Kasper out of the way. Cryptic threats and attempts on his life leave Kasper with a charred house, too many visits from the paramedics, and no answers. Kasper must uncover the person behind the violence before it’s too late — and they’re closer than he thinks.
By popular demand! Get your copy today and meet the newest obsession of Blue Series fans.

Alone in their booth, Kasper continued the conversation about favorite hobbies and interests. They didn’t have much in common, but it didn’t matter. Every layer Mat revealed was a fascinating surprise that made it obvious Kasper had been dating the wrong people for too long.

Mat hadn’t mentioned anything about status all night. No jealous comments or bitterness over a rival. Nothing about social media. Not even an interruption to take a picture of his food. Kasper had forgotten what it was like to be with someone who wasn’t driven by ambition or obsession. It was his own fault. 

He didn’t want a serious relationship, so he dated people too preoccupied to consider love a priority. Until that night, he hadn’t realized what he was sacrificing to keep romance at a distance. Instead of enjoying the conversation and what it revealed, he’d been with people who made him want to rush through dinner and get to fucking so they would stop talking. 

“This has been fun.” Mat wiped his mouth with his napkin.

“Yes, it has.” Kasper leaned back to let the server remove his plate. 

“You make me glad I chose to give up anonymous sex. I can’t remember the last time I had this good a time with someone. Of course, hookups never involved this much talking.”

“I’m happy the experiment is working so far. Are you ready to go?”

“Sure.” Mat scooted to the end of the bench on his side of the table.

“Coffee at my place?” Kasper did the same.

“Sounds great.” 

Kasper walked through the restaurant debating whether to take Mat’s hand. He considered it all the way out to the parking lot before deciding he was overthinking. He caught Mat’s arm a step from the car door and tugged him to a stop. Releasing his brief hold, he took Mat’s face in his hands and kissed him, slowly, tenderly. Mat kissed him back, pulling him closer by the belt loops in his jeans.

Kasper kept the hunger on a leash despite the sparks that lit an instant fire inside, warming his cock. He didn’t want to rush that moment. The romance of a first kiss was too important to neglect, no matter how badly he wanted to strip Mat naked. They’d get to that. Later.

“Wow,” Mat whispered with dazed eyes, making Kasper want to kiss him all over again.

“I’ve wanted to do that for days,” Kasper admitted.

“Me, too. Though, I’ll admit, my fantasy didn’t quite match that.”

“You know how it is with us rebellious types. We don’t conform to expectations.”

“I’ll try to remember that.” The dimples reappeared. “I hope your house isn’t too far because I’m ready to jump you right here.”

“I had the same thought, but someone is bound to notice if we don’t make it out of the parking lot.”

“We can always put the top up.”

Kasper looked over his shoulder at the confines of his two-seat sports car. “You’ll get bonus points for difficulty if you can pull off anything more than a blow job in there,” he joked before opening the door to let Mat in.

Award-winning author DP Denman writes addictive, character-driven MM romance from a soggy, moss-covered neighborhood in the Pacific Northwest. Her stories are dramatic and intense, guaranteed to pull you in and hold you hostage to the last word.

Title: Show Me Wonders

Author: Riley Nash
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2022
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Just when I thought Riley Nash’s writing could get any better, she went and produced this masterpiece! I knew from the very beginning I was going to have to forget life all around me and devote my time to completing Jackson and Oliver’s story because there was no way I could put it down! It contained absolutely everything I wanted in a book and more, with it being a beautifully done second chance that was emotion-charged and angst filled.” -Goodreads Reviewer

“It’s overwhelming, raw, and absolutely brilliant. Riley Nash is phenomenal when it comes to writing emotional rollercoasters and heartbreak, and I honestly wasn’t sure my heart would survive this story.” -Goodreads Reviewer
 
 
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.

Title: Secret Santa
Author: Deanna Wadsworth
Genre: MM Christmas Erotica
Release Date: November 15, 2022
 
 
It’s Christmas Eve and Adam has a special gift for his boyfriend—himself, wrapped in a big red bow.
 
Blindfolded and ready for a magical holiday night, Adam anxiously waits for his boyfriend to come and unwrap him. Just when he thinks their date has been forgotten, the door bursts open and his lover arrives. They have the best sex of Adam’s life, but afterward his man disappears before Adam can catch his breath or even remove the blindfold.
 
Left with only the memory of a passionate kisses kiss, a mysterious Santa hat, and a tray of half-eaten cookies, Adam soon discovers his lover was not who he thought it was…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Adam expelled his breath in relief. He hadn’t realized how hard his blood had been pounding just then. He had no clue why Paul was so late, but he didn’t really care. He was here now. Tremors of gratitude and anticipation rippled down his spine, prickling the skin with goosebumps. The scent of something unexpectedly wonderful he couldn’t identify still lingered near him, and he wondered if Kathy had bought new candles.
“I’m glad you’re here. Hold on.” Adam hastily repositioned his elbows on the edge of the couch and spread his legs wide, once again sticking his ass up in the air. The self-imposed vulnerability made his stomach tremble, and his dick snapped back to attention.
Damn, it had been too long since they’d fucked.
“Merry Christmas, baby,” Adam said in a low, husky tone. He shifted a little, just to tease. “Wanna open your present?”
Paul didn’t respond with his usual cocky quip, rather he let out a low groan that sounded almost painful. Adam’s head jerked toward the fireplace in shock at the closeness of his lover’s voice. Paul was already standing beside him?
“Jeez,” he chuckled. “You’re quick when you’re horny.”
Another soft moan was the only reply.

Author: Felice Stevens
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
Release Date: November 2, 2022
In the rough and tumble world of New York City, these men don’t mind getting down and dirty—in business or each other.
It isn’t every day a gorgeous stranger shows up in my bedroom wearing not much more than an arrogant smile. When I discover he’s a high-priced escort and a surprise birthday present from my sister…now she’s gone too far.
Except I haven’t been able to stop kissing him long enough to tell him to leave.
No one has to know he’s spent the night. And when we’re done, he’s gone and out the door. Never to be seen again.
Well, not exactly.
Because for some crazy reason, I can’t quite forget Archer Strong.
It’s a job like all the others. Another evening of million-dollar seduction and fake desire that’s made me the most exclusive escort in New York City.
But after one kiss from billionaire real-estate mogul Madden Steele, I’m not pretending anything.
And when he wants to see me a second time, I break my rule of one and done.
Because just one night with Madden isn’t enough. I want to see him again.
And again.
Now he’s asking for something more. Something that could solve all my problems, and his. But it’s something I can’t give him.
Or can I?
With an enemy from inside Madden’s family scheming to take control of his company and destroy me, we’re in for a fight. Holding on to each other might be the biggest risk of our lives, but it’s the only way to reap the greatest reward—love.
