Pirate of Fathoms Deep (Tales of the High Court #2) by Megan Derr
High Commander Lesto Arseni is the most feared man in the Harken Empire. None but the High King dares risk his wrath—and a pirate who once punched him in the middle of the imperial pavilion. A pirate who later snuck away with Lesto to an empty room, touched him in ways far more memorable. And then immediately bolted like a man who'd gotten what he wanted.
Shemal just wants to live a normal life, leave his pirating days behind him and prove that he's respectable now. The last thing he needs is the two idiots who show up wanting his help with the noble they've kidnapped—the very man Shemal had been hoping to prove himself to, the man he hasn't forgotten since Shemal punched him a year and a half ago.
Dinner for One by Meg Harding
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/2aabagn
Bastien isn’t used to bad reviews. His French restaurant is the toast of the town, and when a well-known critic insults it, he’s left off-kilter. Luckily for him he’s found a distraction. He’s just met an attractive writer at his niece’s school bake sale. He’s into food, into Bastien and the touch of kink they share, and there’s a chemistry between them that might make the perfect recipe.
James isn’t expecting to meet a good-looking French chef at a bake sale, but he’s not going to let the chance slide. It comes as a surprise when the chef turns out to be the owner of a place he knows—and has reviewed—and it puts James in a sticky situation. So he might have to omit some pertinent information to make it work… at least for now.

Xavi doesn’t believe in love anymore. Love has never changed the outcome of anything. It has only hurt him.
Sam is sick, and he wants one last thing. He wants Xavi to be with him, to stay with him until the end. Xavi drops everything and promises Sam he will be there.
As they travel across the countryside in a stolen sea-green Cadillac, they search for something neither has the courage to admit he’s looking for. But as the days slip away, Xavi isn’t sure he can keep his promise; he isn’t sure about anything. He can’t help Sam do this. He can’t stand by and watch Sam suffer, can’t be content to let Sam give up.
Saving Sam becomes the only thing that makes any sense, the only thing Xavi wants. Loving Sam becomes the most important promise he will ever make. Now he just has to convince Sam that life—and love—are worth fighting for.

Nineteen-year-old Jake is one of the more popular and good-looking jocks at his high school. However, despite what others might think, he really doesn't have it all. Derek, a geeky guy with a loud taste in shirts, isn’t sporty but has regular practice in ducking slurs and jokes about his homosexuality.
When Derek is assigned to tutor Jake to stop him failing Chemistry, neither is initially ecstatic about it. Derek’s wary of dumb jocks who laugh at nerds, especially gay nerds, and Jake’s confused about the chemical reaction taking place. Oh, not the ones in the school lab, but the personal reaction between him and Derek that sparks during their library study sessions. He’s confused...but not resistant and the two come to understand how much in common they really have.
But between the pressures of senior year and their families threatening to tear them apart, they have only a short time to bond together and find solutions to the problems they face or they'll be over before they've even begun.

Zmeij by Jason Stanley
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/29SMfyl
Available on Kindle Unlimited
From the creative mind of the writer of the Ashes of the Fallen Series of Books comes a tale of court intrigue, addiction, romance, and sorcery.
"Two hundred years ago the Zmeij Wars nearly encompassed the entire planet of Erdo. Emperor Perion The Fourth used the Zmeij war to assert full control over all Eight Kingdoms. Before the Zmeij War he had only dominion over five of the Eight Kingdoms on Erdo. Emperor Perion the Fourth backed the growing Sorcere Guild against The Spice Cartels. For fifty years Emperor Perion the Fourth had been granted sanction to use Zmeij without license as well as being granted a thirty percent discount in purchase of further Zmeij. His heir, Crown Prince Wolknor, saw the dangers in the overdose of Zmeij and Sorspawn. On the death of Perion the Fourth, newly inaugurated Emperor Wolknor unofficially cut as many ties with The Sorcere Guild as possible without causing offense. He even went so far as to surround himself with bodyguards that were addiction free of The Spice, and cut the Council of Sorcerer Generals from eighteen down to eight." - History of the Empire of Eight Kingdoms by the Scholar Kali of House Hameln.
Trey’s Partner by Hollis Shiloh
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/29SPiqA
Trey's life has been one of protection and privation. Facing a hungry winter, he leaves his mountain home and family and goes looking for work in the human world. The "wolf school" seems like a good choice. He might not know much about the modern world, but if he can learn to work with a human, he'll earn a good living, never go hungry again, and help his family survive, too.
It's just a job, and he doesn't understand why some shifters are so fussy about who they team up with. Finding the perfect partner is a no-brainer for Trey. He just needs someone he trusts and can work with — someone who isn't overly emotional. Trey easily finds the right partner — as long as his choice agrees to it. As long as no emotions get involved.

Softpaw by Beryll & Osiris Brackhaus
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/29QKjcW
Connor’s life used to be the dream of any cultured werecat. He spent his days in Paris’ gay quarter with comfortably little real work, playing the piano, surrounded by art, fine food and good friends. Now, a feral vampire preys on the prostitutes of ‘his’ quarter, killing the boys of the Marais one by one.
When Connor invites a newly arrived hooker to stay on his houseboat, the last thing he expects is Michel to be a member of the Brigade Criminelle - a troubled, hunky rookie cop sent undercover to explore Connor’s connection to the murders, picked mostly because he had been a boy of the Marais himself, not so long ago.
Hiding their true natures becomes a problem for both when their initial attraction becomes much more than they ever thought possible. But in order to bring down the serial killer and maybe have a chance at making their relationship work out, one of them will have to take the first, critical leap...

Hundreds of years into the future, there are two species of wolf shifters: the Licanos and the Amarot, each controlling vast areas of space. The two species have had a rivalry for milennia, and right now they’re in the middle of the fiercest war they’ve ever had.
Caught up in the conflict is Vidal. Vidal is a feral, a type of traditional shifter who spent most of his life growing up as a wolf in the wilds of Chera. After his family is violently taken by Amarot soldiers, he has no choice but to join the Licano space cadets. Vidal just wants to keep his head down and survive the war. What he isn’t expecting is Diogo Câmara, the caption of La Cicatriz de Batalla, to take a special interest in him.
Captain Câmara soon catches on to Vidal’s past, and subjects him to various ‘punishments’ to keep him in line, which have Vidal begging for more. Vidal can’t figure out the captain’s intentions: does he care for him, or is he just one in a line of omegas who serve him?
Meanwhile, the threat of the Amarot forces looms ever nearer, as they are poised to win the war. When Vidal ends up pregnant from Diogo, their bond is tested, as well as the lengths Diogo will go to to protect his future child. They’ll both have to fight for their love, navigating the murky political waters of the conflict, as well as the darkness of space.
