Free Spirit - Spencer Spears
He’s my fake boyfriend and I’m straight. So why do I suddenly want more?
Tate: I’m everything people hate. Spoiled, arrogant heir to a billion-dollar fortune. Scion of a family that made its name opposing LGBTQ+ rights. The last thing I expected to develop was a conscience.
I blame Emory Murphy—the golden-haired mess of a dreamer who turned my life upside down. Somehow, I agree to pretend be Em’s boyfriend for his brother’s wedding. Somehow, I find myself kissing him. More than kissing him. And liking it.
How do you go back to being friends after that? Hey, wanna grab some beers and forget about the time I had my mouth around your— Yeah. Not happening.
He has no idea that I’m really falling for him. And my family has no idea who I really am. I just want to feel free for once in my life—but am I brave enough to tell either of them the truth?

I was living in darkness. Cold and alone, I was gripped by the agony of loss and grieving for an existence I no longer believed I could have. Then he appeared in my life and I thought that maybe, just maybe, I’d been gifted with another chance at happiness. That I might be allowed the privilege of loving and caring for another man.
That I could have my very own boy…

Winter Wonders - Leighton Greene
Faking their way through Christmas...
This holiday season, Cooper Kincaid finds his perfect Christmas gift on the side of the road: Jonathan Ashe. So perfect, in fact, that he can't resist unwrapping the gorgeous present and playing with him a little early, after taking Jon back to his cabin to recover from a minor car accident.
Jon seems to bring out something deep inside Cooper...something he's tried to keep hidden from previous boyfriends. But their merrymaking is complicated when Cooper lies to his meddling mother, and tells her he's dating Jon.
Jon has no interest in a new relationship after getting his heart broken. Definitely no interest in the heir to the Kincaid estate, where Jon is working for the holidays. And especially no interest in a guy who's so new to finding his dominant side in bed. Still, maybe a fake relationship could be fun, just for the holidays?
Meanwhile, Cooper's disapproving mother digs into Jon's past to prove to Cooper that they're totally unsuited. Can Cooper and Jon admit they might be each other's winter wonderful, or will their differences and outside interference prove too much?

Gifting Dylan - Anders Grey
Nash: I hate Christmas. I hate festive cheer. I hate getting snowed in. Most of all, I hate my annoyingly adorable neighbor who keeps trying to convince me I should love the holidays. But no matter how cute he is, there’s no way he’ll melt my icy heart—especially since I've never been into men before and I don't plan on starting now.
Dylan: When my smokin’ but surly neighbor gets snowed in, I rush gallantly to his rescue. After all, helping others is what the holidays are all about. But after glimpsing the sweet man beneath Nash's prickly holiday-hating exterior, I’m determined to find out why Nash doesn't think he's worthy of love—and if anyone can prove him wrong, it's me.
Home for Christmas - Tatum West
I don’t do Christmas magic. Or kids. Or second chances. I do facts and figures, logic and reason, dividends and bank accounts and holidays spent alone.
That’s what I keep telling myself when I wake up in a shabby bed, in an unfamiliar life, next to a man I haven’t seen for twelve years—with a daughter I never had.
I'm clearly losing my mind. I didn’t stay in Abingdon. I didn’t stay with Van Narron, the love of my life. We gave up on that dream a long time ago.
But Van’s lips on mine, the warm touch of his fingertips, the Christmas carols and the decked out tree, and holiday cards lining the dusty mantle… and this sweet little girl calling me ‘Dad’…
This life feels far more real than anything I know. I'm dreaming. Things like this don’t happen. And they sure as hell don’t last.
Second Chance for Christmas - Avery Ford
The last thing Toby Carver wants for Christmas is to fall in love. His life in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas, might not be flashy or exciting, but it suits him just fine. And even if there was a hot guy within a fifty mile radius, (spoiler: there isn’t) Toby wouldn’t be interested. He learned the hard way a long time ago that love only leads to one thing—a broken heart.
There is nothing for Blake Rivers in Cottonwood Falls. Nothing he hasn’t already ruined for himself, anyway. He left town ten years ago after graduation and hasn’t looked back since. But after a messy breakup and a mostly unsuccessful slog trying to make it as an actor in L.A., Blake is back home in Kansas to get his life together.
When Toby and Blake meet again after so many years apart, it’s obvious that the chemistry and attraction between them is still as strong as ever. Will the magic of Christmas be enough for them to overcome a decade of hard feelings and take a second chance on love?
