Endurance by Anni Scotson

“A heart-stopping moment when I didn’t know what was going to happen.”

Jaxon has endured two years of agony. Physical pain the and mental anguish from knowing it was his fault. If he hadn’t come out as gay, it would all be different.

He decides to break away from his overprotective aunt and uncle. He’s going to cycle across America. And if it kills him? Maybe that’s for the best.

“I let myself enjoy each exquisite tingle of sensation.”

Matt’s given up everything for love. The training, the camaraderie, and all that make him an Ironman triathlete. But when his girlfriend dumps him, he flees back to his past, knowing that grueling activity is the best cure for his broken heart.

An irresistible offer sends him cycling four thousand miles — a guide and safety net for a damaged young man who is trouble and attraction rolled into one scarred but delicious body.

“He wants me, he wants me not …”

Thrown together for one summer, tension and chemistry rise as both men struggle with their demons within.

How can love last, when neither dares tell the other how he feels? When they finally say goodbye, will it be forever?

Hold That Pose by Devyn Morgan

Suave, well-traveled, and French, 22 year old Etienne Devaux transferred to Rochester Institute of Technology for his last two years as a photography major.

John Hart studies business on a wrestling scholarship, and is being groomed to work in his family’s paper mill business. The tall, dark, and handsome roommate presents an unexpected complication. John hoped for privacy. It’s bad enough to get hard from all that adrenaline while wrestling guys – and now he’ll have to watch himself even in his own room!

Except it’s impossible to hate Etienne. In fact, it’s impossible not to love him.

Jack of Thorns by Amelia Faulkner

Taking Chances by S.K. Grayson

It’s easier to take a chance when someone’s holding your hand.

Jake Marsden has been going to the anxiety support group meeting for months. He’s made some progress, but coming to grips with his fear is a slow, frustrating journey. Then a shy glance from a gorgeous newcomer across the room promises to make him forget about his problems for a while.

When the handsome, dark-haired man across the circle stands and talks, Chance can barely look away. He daydreams of something he doesn’t believe he’ll ever have because he’s afraid to take that kind of a risk. Jake worries that dating will be a challenge until he makes more progress, but there’s no way he can see this man every week and not ask him out.

Drawn to each other from the moment their gazes lock, they may be able to overcome the past and move on, together.

Up and Coming by Andrea Dalling

An unexpected love could cost him his dreams.

Emmett Cross doesn’t have time to date. A college quarterback on a path to turning pro, he can’t afford distractions, especially with the academic challenges he faces. When he’s blindsided by a growing attraction to his friend Jake, he fights it—rumors that he’s bisexual could wreck his draft prospects. But he can’t stop thinking about the cute blond twink with the warm heart and gentle smile.

Biochem major Jake Schott has had a straight-boy crush on Emmett since freshman year. Emmett’s cool logic is the perfect complement to Jake’s sensitive nature. He’s sure nothing can come of his longing—until a scorching kiss turns desire into hope. Although the tall, sexy athlete with the trim waist and thick biceps denies that there’s a chance for them, his lustful looks and stolen touches tell a different story. Passion ignites between them, but Emmett insists on hiding the relationship.

When their secret threatens to come out, will Emmett give up Jake to protect his career? Or will he risk everything for love?

Stray Hearts by Harper Logan

“Out of the frying pan, into the fire.”

Chris Seitz just can’t catch a break. Driving west to escape the flooding that rocked his Georgia hometown, he finds himself stranded during a record monsoon in a rural Arizona town with a bag of clothes and Henry, the cat he rescued four days prior. Now Henry has gotten lost, and Chris is nearing the end of his rope.

“What good was an artist if he couldn’t make his art?”

Wandering around during a thunderstorm in the hopes of finding inspiration to cure his crippling creative block, master potter Lucas Duncan is surprised to find something else—a terrified and lost cat. He’s even more surprised to discover who the owner is: the handsome newcomer to town.

“I didn’t want to believe that I could feel that way about another man…”

Deep in the closet and ten years Chris’s senior, Lucas wouldn’t normally have a reason to associate with the young wanderer… if not for Henry the cat, and the unyielding magnetism of fate. Can the undeniable connection between the two lost souls bring their stray hearts home?

If Not For Charlie by Carol Davis

Jeremy Cole is a success, by anyone’s standards: he runs a popular online magazine, and two of his books have hit the best-seller lists. Though he’s quiet and a little clumsy, his family and friends adore him. But throughout his life, he’s known there was something missing – the person who would make him complete. Someone he met years ago, during a summer he spent at the lake with his grandparents. Someone who sent him postcards and dozens of little gifts, someone who led him on great adventures… and then disappeared from his life, only to return a decade later. Someone who comes and goes on a whim, chasing a goal Jeremy can’t begin to understand.

After his grandmother’s death, Jeremy is faced with selling his family’s treasured summer home – and with deciding, once and for all, what to do about Charlie, the only man he’s ever loved.

Roughing the Passer by Alison Hendricks

Garrett Barnes is no stranger to overcoming the odds. Forced to walk away from a Division I scholarship, Garrett was sure he’d never play football again. When an offer comes in from the ESC Mavericks, it seems like a dream come true. There’s only one catch: he’s expected to single-handedly save the worst team in the state.

Diego Ruiz has known his whole life that the deck is stacked against him. The harder he tries to fight it, the more it hurts when it knocks him back down. He’s stopped trying for anything more than mediocrity, both on and off the football field. If not for a promise he made, he’d probably just be some nobody in a nowhere job.

When Coach brings in some “hero” to save the team, Diego is determined to show him exactly where hard work gets you–nowhere. Despite this, Garrett’s optimism starts to get under Diego’s skin. Caught on the verge of giving in, he relies on the one thing that’s never failed him: his ability to get curious straight boys into bed.

Wrecked by Sierra Riley

“The best gifts are the ones you never knew you needed.”

“Wedding party tradition: everyone gets laid.”
Roger “Beck” Beckworth grew up with a strict, homophobic father who was always changing the rules just to keep Beck on his toes, but now he’s made a well-ordered, predictable life for himself that he’s perfectly happy with. Perfectly. The last thing he expects when he shows up at a friend’s wedding is a second chance at first love.

“Surprises are some of my favorite things.”
Liam Hart goes wherever the wind blows him. He’s practically allergic to the idea of being tied down. That had been different, once, but Beck was half a lifetime ago. The pain of losing him taught Liam about the risk of love. Finding him again might just teach Liam something else altogether, though.

“You have to believe. Love will never let you down.”
When fate brings them together again, their differences seem destined to pull them apart… unless Beck can finally learn to let go, and Liam figures out that love really is worth holding onto.
