Victim of Love by Darien Cox

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1MoQsVK

Synopsis

Young lab scientist Olsen Westergard has worked long and hard to create order and stability in his life, and believes he’s finally content. But when he goes on a summer holiday trip with his friends, they try to rouse him from his customary caution, urging him to remedy his extended sexual dry spell. Their fumbled efforts to hook him up validate Olsen’s guess that he likely won’t meet the type of guy he’s looking for on this trip. Or rather, the type of guy he thinks he’s looking for.
But when a solo late night beach walk leads to a heated encounter with a drunken stranger, Olsen unexpectedly finds himself overwhelmed with turbulent desires—made worse when he later discovers the stranger’s surprising identity, and that ready or not, they’re about to get to know each other a whole lot better.

Where There’s Fire (Ponopolis #2) by Cari Z

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1NZwIIM

Synopsis

Making a name for myself as a Villain in Panopolis is hard work. Six months ago, my boyfriend broke me out of jail. Now he’s spending most of his time defending our turf against other Villains he accidentally freed along with me. And my new psychic powers are not only impossible to control, but they’re also giving me migraines.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. My skills are improving every day, and Raul—aka the Mad Bombardier—and I have never been happier. That is, until my first solo job is interrupted by a mysterious woman who tells me that Raul has been kidnapped by a ruthless new Villain. The only way to free him is to do a job for Maggot, a man with scary ideas and an even scarier superpower.

I can’t go to the cops or a Hero for help. Odds are they wouldn’t listen to me anyway. If I fail, Raul will be killed. If I succeed, we’ll both be bound to a man who’ll stop at nothing to put Panopolis on the path to civil war.

It looks like the only way to win is to take out the competition.

This is the second book in the Panopolis series

When Blake Raleigh’s favorite rentboys retire from Market Garden, they’re sure their friend Jason will be a perfect replacement. Though Tristan and Jared are a tough act to follow, Blake returns to London to test out their recommendation.

The more time they spend together, the more Blake wants, and not just sex and transactions. But Jason’s been burned before by men who thought they were in love with him, and he’s not making that mistake again. When the lines between personal and professional start to blur, it’s going to take more than money, jewelry, and sports cars to keep Jason from clocking out and walking away.

Synopsis

THE EPIC ROMANCE, back in print in a new revised edition! Before he was “Brad Vance,” Brad published under the name Orland Outland. “We” are pleased to make this novel available again!
Cal Hewitt and Eric Hamilton grew up just across the street from each other, but far across a cultural divide. Both young men are gay, but where Eric has been raised in a happy, sunny, liberal household, Cal has grown up in a conservative, religious family for whom being gay is anathema. But their attraction to each other is not to be denied, not over the span of a decade or a continent. Their lives will intersect again and again as each lives through their own version of gay life – AIDS, drugs, activism, the pain of loss and the solace of family.
This is also the story of two strong women, Carol Hewitt and Emma Hamilton. Both their journeys as mothers will take them far from where they began, far from where they expected to end up. It’s the story of families, broken and healed, the story of an era that ends with the promise of a new millennium…

Real Vampires Don’t Sparkle by Amy Fecteau

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1HXQLr0

Length: 386 pages

Synopsis

Matheus Taylor didn’t ask to be murdered.
To be fair, the percentage of people actually asking to be murdered is probably small enough to be safely ignored, but he felt it was worth stating regardless. His life might have been ordinary, but it was his life and he wasn’t done with it yet.
Quin didn’t care.
A seventeen-hundred old Roman, Quintus Livius Saturnius had a different view of morality than most people. Killing Matheus and hijacking his undead existence seemed perfectly acceptable to him.
Now, Matheus spends his nights running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation, and defying a mysterious new threat to the vampires within his city.
Not that he set out to do any defying; he just wanted to be left alone.
Unfortunately, that was never going to happen.
