On the Ranger - Raleigh Ruebins
Shane Aarons is going to ruin my national park...And he may also ruin me.
Micah: The best thing about being a park ranger is having the forest to myself. The last thing I need is this new hire Shane getting in my way. He’s thin. He’s clumsy. His head is in the clouds... And sometimes I want to touch him. So, so bad.
I’m not gay. At least… I didn’t think I was. But now my mind won’t shut up about Shane. When he hurts himself hauling a wood pile and I have to take care of him, I hardly know what to do. Because now he’s in my house, letting slip that he wants me, too. How could I say no to that?
Shane: I swear, I wasn’t trying to get a park ranger job just to drool over Micah the whole time. But that’s kind of how I’ve been spending all my time. I’m not a great park ranger, but I’m trying. And when Micah bosses me around, I can’t help but fall for him.
But I never expected that one night, in the dark, he’d want to kiss me, too. And now that it’s happened, it’s getting harder and harder to control myself around him. Am I just falling for another straight guy who will leave me in the dust? Or could he be my ranger for real?

Oral Arguments - Ian Finn
Am I falling for the enemy? I was crushed when I found out my long-term boyfriend Gage had been cheating on me for years. All I can do now is try to put that relationship behind me and focus on my future career goals. At my law firm’s outreach event, I meet Calvin, a quirky, cute artist, and sparks immediately fly. Things are going great between us and I’m starting to think, “Gage who?!”
Then I’m assigned at work to represent Gage, of all people, in a lawsuit his ex filed against him. Gage is such a manipulative jerk that he specifically requested me, just to screw with me. And my boss won’t take no for an answer. Imagine my surprise when I find out that the person suing Gage is my new flame, Calvin. Yep. I’ve been falling in love with the guy Gage cheated on me with!
But Calvin swears he was just as wronged, as he hadn’t known Gage was with me. We were both played— and are still being played— by Gage. And now I’m being forced to choose between love and career.

Window Watcher - Matt Converse
Murder is in the eye of the beholder. In this M/M nod to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, Heston is a writer who spends most of his life alone in his own little world. One spring day he pulls up his window shades and sees more than he ever imagined.
The gorgeous and younger Icarus wants Heston to commit to love. To prove himself, he ends up trying to solve a murder without either of them becoming the next victim. A peek into a stranger’s life can turn from sexy to deadly in the blink of an eye. What you see isn’t always what you get.
Temporary Bliss - Kiska Gray
Mika: It was only supposed to be temporary. I just needed a cute guy to take home for Thanksgiving so I could convince my overbearing mother that I had my shit together. How was I supposed to know that the hottie I picked up at the club was a rockstar?
Gideon: It was only supposed to be temporary. When I woke up with a tow-headed twink in my bed, all i could focus on was his bubble butt. So when he asked me to fake being his boyfriend for a family dinner, I figured why not? What did I have to lose?
Apparently, my heart.
And for a playboy like me, that's just asking for trouble.
Pendulum - Joel Abernathy
Torn between brothers, torn between worlds...
All I wanted was a fresh start when I left my abusive ex-boyfriend behind in Austin. What I got? A den of wolves.
No, I mean literal wolves--moon worship, fangs and all.
Sebastian and Victor? One’s troubled and dangerous, the other’s as overprotective as he is overpowered, and they’re both alpha males. Speaking of alphas, each of them thinks I’m his “omega.” Or /fleur/.
If I wanted anything to do with the wolf pack or its super-exclusive “gentleman’s club,” I’d be flattered that the twins are fighting over me like a scrap of meat, but I’m not that kind of guy no matter what they insist I am and there’s nothing gentlemanly about the wolves who run the Lodge.
Problem is, they’re not the only ones who are after me. Keeping the wolves at bay is hard enough, but when a vampire from my past comes calling, I’ll have to choose sides--and a mate--just to survive.
Not His Man - Victoria Light
Ford: It’s my first time doing this kind of thing. I even gave him a fake name. After all, I’m never going to see him again.
Virgil is nothing like my ex, and that's exactly what I want in a one-night stand. He’s alpha-as-hell, an ex-Marine, and when he takes me to his bedroom he checks off boxes I didn’t even know were there. Maybe I’m not as broken as I believed.
Virgil: I don’t usually go for stuck-up nerdy guys, but Ford is full of surprises. He seems reserved at first, but that all changes once I have him on his knees. Now, I can’t get him out of my head.
I don’t mind taking him home for another night or three, but anything more than that? No way. If a decade in the Marines has taught me anything it’s that life’s too short not to live it on the edge. I’m not going to be tied down.
The problem is, the more I’m forced to see him, the more I realize he makes me feel alive in a way that nothing else does.
