Quinn Matthew had everything. He had a good paying job that he loved. He lived in a loft that was the envy of everyone he knew. Most importantly, he was single and the hottest man in town. There wasn’t a bar in town, straight or gay, that he wouldn’t be lusted after and have his choice of men. His vanity and ego knew no bounds. Until one night, when his lust for sex became a lust for blood.

Can opposites attract, even when a secret may keep them apart? There’s nothing like having to sit through a series of educational corporate seminars and stay awake but in explicit detail the company men were given no choice. For Bryan Black, the educational class meant taking him away from selling, the one thing he knew he could do well, and he resented the intrusion. He was slowly rebuilding a life that held nothing but despair and he needed to concentrate in order to keep from falling into an abyss of depression. No one had been able to break him out of the wretched cloud hanging over his head. When he set his eyes on the trainer, he knew some kind of arrow slammed into his system. Julez Mendez was savvy, sexy and one smart guy. As he stood in front of the class of twenty men Julez became a tough taskmaster, refusing to allow any one of the crew to slack off. He also declined to socialize. Intrigued, Bryan decided to crack Julez’ hard shell, only to find the kind of man he could fall in love with. Terror wrenched his soul. Against his better judgment, they indulged in an uninhibited night of passion. Unfortunately the instructor held a secret close to his heart and one that threatened the very concept of sharing anything but a round of hot sex. On the morning after Bryan was incensed and bent on making his teacher pay, but a ghostly whisper reminded him - what if looks could be deceiving? Perhaps a snowy night could soothe two men who craved much more than they understood how to give.

FRET (The Rock Series Book 1) by Sandrine Gasq-Dion
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1XhDuQR
Former Navy SEAL Axel Blaze lives a solitary life. He doesn't do emotions, and he doesn't do babysitting. Used to being on his own, his job consists of Wetwork (a charming term coined by the KGB) for his former Master Chief, Mac. When an out-of-the-ordinary job lands on his doorstep, Axel heads down a path that includes a famous heavy metal rock band and one quiet, vulnerable, guitar-shredding virtuoso named Gareth Wolf.
Gareth Wolf's life changed in an instant when a car he was a passenger in crashed, hurting his brother's best friend and the band's lead guitarist. They created the band, Skull Blasters, as kids. Gareth had always been happy in the background, playing roadie. With the lead guitarist's injury, Gareth is suddenly thrust into the limelight and into a frenzied life he never imagined for himself. Finally fed up with living a lie, Gareth comes out as gay in a newspaper interview and finds himself in the bulls-eye of a crazed stalker. Somebody wants Gareth hurt - or worse - and Mac has been hired to be sure that doesn't happen. Babysitting duty is NOT Axel's strong suit, but Mac won't be budged.
Enter Axel Blaze.
Against his better judgment, the big man takes the job to protect the shy musician. The more time he spends with Gareth Wolf, the more he admires the man. Where's a simple assassination when you need one? The situation becomes more volatile for each man as the attempts on Gareth escalate just as Axel finds himself falling for the quiet lead guitarist.
Strong, funny, smart-ass -- and kinda sweet Axel is everything Gareth has ever wanted in a man. Too bad he's off limits. As the stalker grows bolder, Gareth and Axel move closer emotionally - but is it too late? All Axel knows is that they don't stand a chance if he can't find the maniac trying to kill the man he's come to care about. A lot.
Everyone knows that relationships that begin in pressured or volatile situations eventually fizzle out. Or do they?

Length: 205 pages
Darien Mackey wasn’t looking for an adventure. For ten years, he’d been happy living in Brooklyn, working as a butcher in the same job, living in the same apartment, dating some “nothing-special” guys. Until one night his buddy Jacob talked him into taking ayahuasca, the soul-changing drug. And Darien had a vision…of a wolf, its all-too-human eyes on him, its paws on his chest, its enquiring mind in his own…
Darien Mackey is changing. He’s more confident, more assertive, hungrier, hornier. And his world is changing around him – his job, his home, his beloved Mechanic’s Library all falling victim to the predations of unscrupulous developers, bent on demolishing the old Brooklyn he loves and replacing it with a forest of condos. But he’s no longer a passive observer of his own life, and as this thing, this power, grows inside of him, he resolves to fight back, to preserve the way of life he loves.
And he’s not alone in the fight. The Lipsius Preservation Society of Brooklyn stands ready to assist in the battle, even though it seems like a bit of a joke to Darien, with its King and its Duke, Marquess, Earl and Viscount.
But there’s nothing funny about his growing attraction to Albeus Finley, King of this mysterious Court. And when slumlords and condo-mongers start to die mysterious, violent deaths at the hands of savage animals, Darien begins to realize that something is afoot in Brooklyn – something supernatural.
And it’s afoot in him, too…

But Raphael is no stranger to sacrifice, and he’ll risk everything to save Brian and reunite with the man Raphael now loves. The question is—how?

Lovers in Arms by Osiris Brackhaus
The year is 1946, World War II is over, and the Nuremberg trials are underway. US Army Captain Frank Hawthorne is returning to Germany to testify in the military tribunal of former Nazi Officer Johann von Biehn. Despite explicit orders to the contrary, Frank is trying to save Johann's life.
Three years ago, at the height of the war, Frank had been sent to kill the very man he is now defending. Much to his surprise, instead of the Nazi monster he was sent to kill, Frank found a compassionate dissenter. Johann considered the handsome young American officer the answer to his desperate prayers to save his beloved Germany from the cancerous infection of Nazi rule. What really happened between the two men during those long summer days in von Biehn’s Spreewald mansion must be kept secret at any cost.
With his own government forbidding Frank to reveal anything political that happened during the war, and society forcing him to conceal their personal relationship, Frank will have to find something truly unexpected to prevent Johann's all-but-certain death sentence.
