BLURB
Axton
I’d hated Ford Bennett when he was my step-father. Hate isn’t a strong enough word, and yet, after divorcing my mom, he’s back in my life. It takes years of maturity to understand he only wanted to love me when I was a kid. As an adult, my own affections and desires for him aren’t childlike. In the darkness of the night, we fall in love, but it’s not enough. I want to love him in the light of the day and take the last name he had wanted to give me so long ago, this time, as his partner.
Ford
The marriage to a woman who can give Satan a run for her money gave me one good thing, her son. He hated me, unable to trust anyone. My love for him has always been unconditional. But he’s a grown man, and my passion has changed for the child who once was my stepson. We meet in the middle of the night, in the darkness, expressing our desires, never speaking of them in the light of the day. But hiding is not enough when I realize I’ll never give Axton Styles up.

Genre: Dark MM Romance
Release Date: May 25, 2022
BLURB
Ezra Hamilton hasn’t felt the warm spurt of blood flow through his fingers or the indescribable feeling of pushing a knife deep into someone’s flesh in a long time. Too long.
He’s been watching a man stalk women, curious as to what he’s doing with them. Ezra’s never encountered someone with similar dark tendencies before, and what starts off as genuine curiosity turns into much more when Kaspian turns the tables on him.
As their chemistry builds, so does the mistrust. They both know you can’t trust a killer, but their inner demons call to each other anyway.
When Kaspian’s impulsivity threatens to ruin Ezra’s freedom, he knows he has to stop him. Kas appears to be fixated on Willow—a woman Ezra works with. In an effort to not have to worry about her disappearance bringing heat on him, he tracks Kaspian as Kaspian follows Willow into a cabin in the mountains.
There, in the middle of a blizzard, secrets will be revealed and revelations made, but the chances of everybody making it out alive are slim.

When the lines blur, can they fight their attraction?
Max
Hot cover model. The one everyone lusts after. The one that makes both women and men drool. That’s me.
Except that doesn’t apply to him. The one taking my photographs. Seductive pose after seductive pose, and he doesn’t blink an eye.
Why? Minor issue. He doesn’t swing my way, and I’ve dealt with enough rejection in my life.
Corey
I want him. How could I not? Max is stunning. I’ve never wanted anything more in my life. But I can’t afford to take what I want. I’m raising two kids and trying to survive the aftermath of my ex-wife–another model.
I need someone serious in my life. And that’s not Max–he’ll never settle down. Plus, he’s not into me. Or men. Or whatever.
Never mind. It doesn’t matter. Coming out is not an option.
Except, the more time I spend with him, the more the lines blur. And suddenly, our photo sessions become fire, the kind that could ignite a forest fire in a hurricane.
But my baggage will destroy anything in its path.
The Redemption is a standalone male/male, opposites attract, steamy contemporary romance set in Alexia Chase’s Sinfully Addictive World.

Author: Felice Stevens
Genre: MM Small Town/Big City Romance

Release Date: April 11, 2022

 

BLURB
A MILLION LIKES vs. ONE TRUE LOVE
Bryce Bauman is one half of a famous influencer couple…until his boyfriend dumps him and puts the whole ugly scene online.

Several months later, Bryce is at the end of his rope—he’s lost all his endorsements, along with his so-called friends. Licking his wounds, he escapes to the tiny town of Serenity, Pennsylvania, where he’s surrounded by too much nature and quiet. And…the hot as hell owner of the bed-and-breakfast who makes him think there might be life beyond what’s on a screen.

Matty Wilcox has no time for spoiled brats or social media. He must keep the business running, his grumpy grandfather healthy, and himself deep in the closet. In his little town, there’s no way to come out to his friends and family and have things stay the same, so he’s better off alone.
Except life is complicated now that Bryce is staying at the bed and breakfast—he’s entirely too tempting and not as silly and shallow as Matty first thought. Giving in to his desire could only muddy the waters of the life he’s so carefully built. Any slipup would be dangerous for his business, his friendships, and most importantly, his heart. Besides, there’s no place for small-town Matty in Bryce’s big-city life. The two of them, together, don’t make sense.
Then again, since when does anything make sense when it comes to love—the greatest influencer of all?

“The path to paradise begins in hell.”
― Dante Alighieri
On a small path leading to nowhere sits a looming cathedral, once-abandoned, now hosting the most dangerous of pleasures.
And Stone Brice is the most dangerous of all: Lust. A former acrobat, Stone’s life was changed dramatically after an accident, and now he runs The Carnal Tower, a place where people can go to have their deepest and sometimes darkest fantasies realized.
Stone is a man who is rarely taken by surprise, so when he meets the artist, August Ashley, he doesn’t expect to trip and fall at his feet—literally. But there’s something about the quiet stranger in the park that Stone wants to take apart, and that feeling only gets worse the more Stone gets to know him.
Stone is well aware he can’t mix business and pleasure, but when August comes to him with a proposal for a trade—seven paintings for seven nights with Lust—he can’t say no. Not when it means he’ll be able to have August exactly the way he wants him—even if it’s just for a week.
Stone has every plan to strip August down to his very soul, but the longer the week goes on, the more Stone comes to realize that August might very well be his undoing.
Shades of Lust is the first book in a new series. It features a bi-awakening, high heat, low angst, and the human embodiment of a seven deadly sin whose sole purpose is to make sure his client never forgets their week at The Carnal Tower. Each book in the series can stand on their own, and all contain no cheating, and a happily ever after.

As a Christian counselor, I strive for integrity in helping guide others in God’s will for their lives.
Until a young man walks into my office for premarital counseling—the stranger who ensnared my soul eight months earlier with his bewitching green eyes.
Levi Townson.
The one whose addictive, luscious mouth I can’t cleanse from my memory.
My hunger for another taste of him should assure me of my need for a savior, not shepherd me down the rabbit hole toward depravity.
Levi’s yearnings mirror mine, the kind that dominates my will. Incinerates and leaves me powerless against my sinful nature.
But if we fall from grace, neither of us will escape unscathed.
