Sweet and Spicy Deals for August 27, 2020

Embrace Him - Steve Milton

The only man I've ever wanted is way out of my league... and he's my dating coach.
I came out at thirty. Late bloomer. If being perpetually single can be called blooming.

Avi is supposed to make me sociable, acceptable, date-able. Whatever. I'm not wearing Daisy Dukes to work no matter what he says. This is Honey Bay, not Key West.

I go along with Avi's dating advice. It's the polite thing to do, even if I could never hope to attract a guy like Avi in real life. Who would ever date a nerdy car mechanic with a ten-dollar haircut and a pet hedgehog?

Avi gives me a style makeover. He teaches me how to flirt. He even tags along on every awkward date. But how can I learn to date when the only man I want is my coach?


Trust in Me - Quinn Ward

He desperately wants someone to care for him. Does he dare share his secret with the ideal man?

Sam is terrified of his own success. He may have set up a dream playroom at The Lodge for Daddies and their littles to play, but as a trans man, he struggles to believe anyone would want him. He feels an immediate connection with a handsome high school principal, but he can’t stand the thought of being rejected.

Now that he’s older, Theron’s missing that special someone to take care of. And the sexy college student who set up the playroom seems perfect – even if there are hurdles to overcome.

As the chemistry between them becomes white-hot, Sam’s reluctant to introduce his new lover to his family. And while Theron falls hard for the beautiful young man, he worries he’s too old to give his sweet boy a real future. Can Sam and Theron overcome their fears to embrace the love they both deserve?


Betrayal - Nikole Knight

Riley finally has love within his grasp, but the only way to protect it may be to let it go.

With no more rules standing in their way, Riley Shepard and his angels test the boundaries of their new and unconventional relationship. Jealousy and doubt lie in wait, threatening to ruin the tenuous ties connecting them. But some things are always worth fighting for.

As the forces of Hell conspire against them, their list of allies dwindles, and the question of who to trust becomes an issue of life and death. There is always more to give, and to protect what Riley loves most, he must make an impossible choice. If the price for their lives is breaking their hearts, then Riley will pay it.

There is no love without sacrifice.


The V- in 403C - Jess Bryant

A a doctoral candidate at age twenty-one, Jonah Monroe doesn’t fit in with his peers and lacks the social graces that would attract friends, let alone a lover. He’s resigned himself to his status as forever alone, until one bad decision turns his world upside down.

He shouldn’t have been in that club. He shouldn’t have let a sexy stranger buy him a drink. And he definitely shouldn’t have let the man kiss him like he’d never been kissed before.

Reed Matheson never would have guessed that kissing a stranger would be the best decision he ever made. He didn’t expect the intense connection he feels to linger long after he was gone. And he certainly never expected to see the cute guy the next morning, preparing to teach his class.

Reed is a student and Jonah is a TA. Nothing more can happen between them, at least that’s what Jonah keeps telling himself. But Reed has never been one to play by the rules and he’s not about to start now, when his heart is on the line.


Obsession - Beth Laycock

Someone’s waiting for Eli. Somebody’s watching his every move...

Eli is used to looking after himself. Single for longer than he’d care to admit, he doesn’t need a man for more than a hookup, not when he’s got his loyal dog, Zeus, by his side.

But one night changes the course of his life. He meets Dominic, an actual copper and not the stripper he thought his best friend had hired for his birthday. A copper that has relationship written all over him and Eli set in his sights.

After his night out celebrating, another gift awaits him at home—but not a pleasant one. His birthday may be over, but the threats keep coming. Keep escalating. Keep hurting those close to him. Just how far will the monster behind them go? And how much will Eli lose before he can stop them?


Beloved by the Boss - Leighton Greene

It’s good to be the Boss. That’s what I thought my whole life.

Now I am the Boss. I’ll shoulder that responsibility with my beloved husband beside me. As long as I have Finch, I can handle whatever life throws at me. But what they say is true: Be careful what you wish for.

My Family has been decimated. My allies are few. I’m holding onto power by a thread. And the truth is, my husband is more vulnerable than ever. He’s always been a lost soul, and now he’s suffered yet another crushing loss.

I can’t protect him from Fate’s cruel blows. But I’m determined to protect him from our enemies, no matter what it takes—as soon as I get my own house in order. Because I’m starting to wonder if there’s a traitor in the Morelli Family…

If I can't even trust my own men, how can I keep my beloved safe?

Protected by the Werewolf - Jules Monroe

“A trade for a trade.”

Leander Vanslow's vampire siblings covet both his blood and his brain. They want the highly intelligent children Leander can create for their army. Leander has already distanced himself from them but their pressure is building. He needs someone to protect him—and not just anyone will do.

He wants a strong, powerful werewolf warrior. In return, Leander has promised the leader of the local pack a cure to a disease affecting their children. The fact that the werewolf he chose as protector is so young is a minor issue—or so Leander thinks.

Takoda Billie has spent the last few years avoiding his pack responsibilities, so when his father assigns him the job of protecting a vampire, he’s angry. That is until he locks eyes with a creature who moves like wind and talks like he’s a hundred years old. Takoda’s caregiving instincts take over, and he finds himself invested in Leander’s safety.


Rugged Guard - Jason Collins

Parker was supposed to be off-limits. I wasn't prepared for romance, much less with a man, but he makes me want to break all the rules. It isn't easy being a bodyguard for a man I can't resist.
