Love on Fire is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with no cliffhangers.
In most packs, an Omega, even one who couldn’t breed, was treasured and would be revered and protected; not cast aside, but our pack was not like most packs, and I was not like most Omegas. I was human, so I understood why I was being sent to the auction. I didn’t like it, but I understood it. Even if there had been affection for me, even if they had been willing to keep me as a pet (neither of these was the case, but an Omega could dream), Cal couldn’t afford not to sell me.
Omegas were hard to come by worldwide. While I would have preferred to mate for love, it didn’t seem that it was in the cards for me. I had taken over as pack Alpha five years earlier, and it was high time that I started adding to the pack population. Granted my pack is run less rigidly than some; the Betas in my pack are not just allowed to breed but actively encouraged to. Unfortunately, only a small number of Beta females are fertile enough to get pregnant, and I’ll be damned if I am going to hump my way through the pack until I find the ones who are. Which brought me full circle to why I was standing in line to pick up the bidding paddle at the auction house.
Less, even, than a marriage of convenience, purchasing an Omega at the auction was more of a long-term service contract; a means to an end, so what was an Alpha to do when he found his soul mate on the auction block?
Pete’s the kind of guy who gets on people’s nerves. He can’t sit still. He talks too much. He doesn’t know when to shut up. And he always knows when people are lying.
While his talent wasn’t strong enough to get an empath rating from the ESRB, he now has a second chance with the new testing system they’re using. If he makes it, he’ll have some well-paying job offers from people who actually appreciate his gifts.
Maybe this time things will work out. Maybe his life will finally take a turn for the better. With some hot guys in it, too.

My days are numbered, so why do I feel like I could live forever in his arms?
After receiving a life-shattering diagnosis Liam wants nothing more than to enjoy what time he has left. Emboldened by his impending fate he asks his hot new doctor on a date, all while leaving out the details of his grim fate. The last thing he expects is to have his every notion of how the world works altered by a surprise pregnancy. With a baby in the mix will his secret bring them together or tear them apart?
Ritter Lehman is Miami’s most successful orthopedic surgeon, but despite his model looks and his hard body, Ritter’s reputation scares away potential boyfriends.
Alissa introduces Ritter to a willowy young man who doesn’t know enough of Ritter’s reputation to be scared away, but Ritter doesn’t want to date a mere “wrench monkey,” and Joshua doesn’t want to be just another notch on Ritter’s scalpel.
Recently widowed, he takes his pups and flees his pack to avoid a new mate who wants him—but not his babies. At Mercy Hills, he finds the help he’d hoped for, but also a man who both attracts and unnerves him. He doesn’t want another alpha mate, or even any mate, though he knows that an omega has to have one. But Abel is unlike any other alpha he’s ever met, and the hope that had been crushed out of him begins to grow again in the warmth of Abel’s kindness and strength.
Bax is a dream come true for Abel—smart, loyal, strong, and loving. Everything Abel’s ever looked for in a mate. Except the independent omega has no reason to trust an alpha and Abel’s going to have to work his way through layers of hurt if he wants to convince Bax he’s safe opening his heart.
But to keep him, he’ll have to fight for him.
The years since Xavier and Jared were best friends have been filled with success for them both. Jared has made a living for himself as a professional surfer and is on the cusp of glory, but never likes to get attached romantically. Meanwhile, Xavier is working his way to the top of the MMA world, and is about to be married. The only problem is, Xavier’s fiance feels more like a best friend than someone he can commit to.
Calling the wedding off is the only right thing to do, and that’s exactly what Xavier does. After, there’s only one place in the whole world that Xavier can imagine going.
There’s someone that has been on Xavier’s mind ever since they parted ways, and he has an offer for Jared. For one night only, Xavier wants to try things he’s never done before, and there’s no one he wants or trusts more than his gorgeous, laid back best friend.
For Jared, a night with scorchingly hot, but tragically straight Xavier sounds like a dream come true. Neither of them can possibly know that one night will change their lives forever, or just what the consequences of that one night will be.
Now I’m out of the military, I want a quiet life. A nearby forest where my wolf can run and hunt, and a wood-shop where I can work with the timber I feel an affinity for.
I definitely don’t want a mate. And if I did, it wouldn’t be an omega. It definitely wouldn’t be a hunted young man who doesn’t know which way is up.
But fate can play cruel jokes.
I’ve spent my life hidden away at the Academy, being prepared to be traded to a pack alpha. Apart from breeding, we’re no use to anyone.
But when I’m chosen, I know I have to run.
And I run straight into a savior — a muscled, tattooed wolf shifter who clearly doesn’t want to know.
A family at risk
But when our budding family is ripped apart by my past, I can do nothing to help myself. I don’t even have hope.
How can Jude ever find us?
Sam Hurley learned a long time ago to handle his problems on his own. He found success as a behind-the-scenes computer genius working for a huge company, but he never found love or belonging until he met his alpha werewolf mate, Rusty. Three months in, Sam is up to his old tricks, trying to deal with his worries on his own and shutting out his pack–including his alpha.
Rusty Jamison hasn’t been alpha of his own pack for long. Still, he thought everything was going well, right up until his omega, Sam, stopped coming home from work. He’s not about to let Sam stay away for a third night in a row, or to let Sam think he can get away with this kind of human-style relationship drama. It seems he still has some things to teach his very clever omega about how wolves solve their conflicts, but will Sam understand what Rusty is trying to tell him?
