Crema - Steve Milton
Clark is a straight guy who only loves coffee. Zeke shows him something new. Clark came back to Amelia Island for his aunt. He keeps to himself mostly, other than running his coffeeshop, Crema. Zeke walks in on opening day. He could use a cup of coffee after a gym workout.
Clark is straight, but he has to admit: Zeke is gorgeous. Clark wouldn't mind having a friend. For friend stuff. They can drive their Ferraris around. Jump off of casino boats. Stuff like that.
Zeke grew up in Amelia Island. He's back now. There's nobody to date around Amelia Island, and that's a good thing. He doesn't need any more pain, especially with "straight" guys who use him.
And Clark? His childhood buddy, now the goofy, gray-eyed nerd who makes his coffee? Clark is great. Zeke loves to spend time with him. But Clark is straight. Or so he says. And Zeke doesn't want love. Or so he thinks.
Unlawful Entry - Rachel Kane
Wyatt: Jesse McLain lives on the wrong side of the law. I've had to arrest him more times than I can count.
But something's different about this time. He's different. I think, for once in his life, he might be innocent. But there's nothing innocent about the way he stares at me during the strip search. And after one forbidden night with him in his cell, I realize... I'm guilty as sin.
Jesse: All I feel is rage, the injustice of life coming out in pure fury. I need someone to hold me back, hold me down. Overpower me. Tell me it's okay.
Sheriff Wyatt Locke can't be the man who does that. We're from opposite sides of the track. Opposite sides of the law. But when the cuffs go on, I'm his. I can tell him almost anything. Almost. The one thing I can't tell him could tear us apart.
Chasing Fate - J.P. James
I’ve always wanted to be a writer covering LGBTQ+ affairs. As a member of the queer community, our issues don’t get enough press and I see it as my job to shine a light on the many amazing things we’ve achieved. To help me out, my dad sets me up with an internship at his best friend’s company, which is a place that puts out a weekly newsmagazine. It’s perfect because I can use this opportunity to write about gay-centric issues to my heart’s content.
But the problem is that the boss doesn’t necessarily see it that way. Dane, my dad’s friend, is handsome, forbidding, and dare I say it? A little scary. He’s used to giving orders, taking risks, and making money hand over fist. Despite being gay himself, he doesn’t want me to use his paper as a platform for our community because he says quote-unquote: “It won’t sell.”
Since when has everything become about money? Have we, as a society, lost our moral compass? Even more important, can we overcome our differences when the attraction is so strong?

Dante refuses to find his mate and lose him in the same night. Dante will fight tooth and talon to protect Gabriel, and doesn't care what stands in his way.
