Truth on Fire by Zach Jenkins

“Coming out was supposed to fix everything.”

Once firefighter David Newsome found the courage to admit his sexuality, he expected life to get better. Instead, studying to become an arson investigator is kicking his ass, his father’s critical voice plays relentlessly on his mind, and he still can’t get to first base with another man. Scoring a date at a charity auction might have meant things were looking up… if only the man who’d won him was gay.

“Love is guaranteed to break your heart.”

After losing his wife to a drunk driver, Quinn Harper only has two concerns: raising his son, and finding a job. When his sister pawns off the “date” she won at a charity auction, he’s definitely not looking for love. Especially not with a man.

“The holidays add stress I don’t need right now.”

With the holidays bearing down on them, the two concoct a plan to fake a relationship together. Keeping well-intentioned, matchmaking friends and family off their backs seems like a great idea… but will the lie they’ve trapped themselves in deny them the chance for true happiness?

A sudden turn of events sees Mac and Jason mated and expecting, but Jason’s old pack isn’t done with them yet.

Novelist Troy Steele has an axe to grind against Hollywood heartbreaker types. Transforming Joey into a gorgeous, unobtainable hunk would be payback worthy of Troy’s poison pen.

Omega Closet by Noah Harris

Everyone has secrets. For some, it might be a report card that they “forgot” to bring home. For others, it might be an illness with which they don’t wish to burden their loved ones. For Tracey Collins, it’s his entire existence.

In a world where one’s place in society is determined by orientation in a dynamic of Alphas, Betas, and Omegas, masquerading as a Beta is the one security that a closeted-Omega has at his arsenal. With a widowed, athletic legend Alpha for a father — and the judgement of an entire community nipping at his heels — the LAST thing Tracey can afford to do is reveal himself to someone like dreamy, all-star soccer captain Aaron Harper.

Caught between his duty to his prestigious father and his forbidden, innermost desires, Tracey is faced with a difficult choice: (1) continue to hide behind pheromone dampeners and omissions, cementing his father’s reputation, or (2) take that leap of faith, where a particular green-eyed Alpha may or may not catch him.
