Dedication of a Lifetime by Tamsen Parker

School counselor Sean wants to fix the world. No social justice slouch himself, Sean’s chemist husband Isaiah is exhausted.

Personal Proposal by Ainsley Booth

Brianne can’t afford a crush on her boss. Thanks to a storm of media attention, she’s fled her old life and needs to please the demanding Astrid. So she ignores the zing every time they touch, and the ache inside as she tumbles into a lonely bed. But as their work gets harder, and their days longer, boundaries crumble and Astrid puts forth an unexpected proposal.

Work of Heart by Olivia Dade

Artist Jenny Meyers may need money, but when a politician tries to pay for his portrait with charity funds, she balks…and contacts David Redi, the most trusted investigative reporter around. David knows a romance with his source would wreck his credibility, but Jenny is one lead he can’t refuse to follow. Soon it’s not only truth, justice, and liberty at stake–it’s love.

The President’s Protector by Kris Ripper

Miriam West is a good president–though she’d say she’s never good enough. Ram Ruiz is a Secret Service agent who garners some side-eye because he’s trans, but in this administration, that doesn’t stop him from being part of the president’s protective detail. She’s the president. He’s her bodyguard. Nothing can happen between them. Until it does.

Fallacies and Flirtations by Amy Jo Cousins

She’s an ex-chain mail bikini-wearing actress-turned-mayor of a major city, and I’m a speechwriter still paying off student loans. She’s my boss, nothing can happen. But somehow it’s always Anna and me in the office at 2 a.m., and I’m starting to think I’m not imagining the heat between us…

The Fourth Estate by Emma Barry

Reporter Drew Orlov wants to write about the corrupt president, but readers only care about the bombshells penned by his rival Brynn Allen. But when he goes after Brynn’s source, he finds himself snagged on more complicated feelings. Brynn doesn’t have time for Drew, even if he’s sexy when he smolders, and they’re soon tussling over the truth with their hearts on the line.

Such Great Heights by Adriana Anders

Reporter O’Neal Jones is a sucker for a good story. Which is why she can’t resist following high school crush Kurt Anderson on his trip up a North Cascades peak. But when it’s time to come down, she’s not sure she can go back to real life. Could one night with a man on a mountain change everything?

Dissent and Desire by Kelly Maher

With her future crumbling, Frankie focuses on one thing she can do: help fight in the war against science. PhD candidate Rafe is unsure about continuing his career with the EPA. Neither expects to see their crush at a meeting, but networking turns into dinner, which turns into more. Hope in the future may be possible after all.

Mr. Klein Goes to Albany by Stacey Agdern

When the Canadian government–via hockey player-turned-diplomat Adam Klein–proposes a work around to the president, legislative aide Tamara Schneider knows she needs to set them straight. She arranges a trip to show Adam the state, tricky business given their history. Can she give Adam a second chance?

Take a Knee by Jane Lee Blair
After police kill her cousin, Rochelle Morris turns to her high-school crush turned NFL player Jack Murphy to bring attention to the cause. Jack just wants to play football, so he refuses. But as Rochelle’s passion continues to affect him, he realizes justice and the heart of the woman he loves are worth the struggle.

Follow Me Into Darkness: Five Tales of Carnivale Romance

Carnivale is a time for decadence, for revelry, and for mischief. A time when we shed the figurative masks we wear in everyday life in favor of new ones… ones that allow us to be a little bolder, a little more adventurous, and perhaps a little truer to ourselves. Follow Me Into Darkness is a compilation of original tales of queer romance by five of the premier authors of contemporary romance.

The Queen’s Reflection by Kris Ripper

Isah plays the role everyone expects: malleable and cautious, a true queen. But what others see as a queen’s appropriate modesty is really just a disguise for what Isah has never told anyone, the thing no one can ever know.

This body, dressed in the queen’s gowns, is a lie.

Once a year, at carnival, Isah dons someone else’s clothes and becomes them for a night. A young cook in stained whites, or a stableboy in worn breeches. As long as no one gets too close the pretense holds.

Until two strangers look past all the characters and Isah finally exposes the person behind the mask.

Boyfriends in the Boneyard by Kris Ripper

In a perfect world, Truman Jennings would be spending Halloween with both his husband and his boyfriend; alas, in this one he’s on a ghost tour with his husband, and his boyfriend is probably watching scary movies and eating pizza rolls.

The cemetery is appropriately creepy, their tour guide weaves a good yarn, and Hugh’s in a very odd (but utterly delightful) mood. When Hugh leads him away from the group Truman doesn’t know what to think, but considering his husband’s filthy, kinky mind, he’s more than willing to find out.

As usual, Hugh has both tricks and treats up his sleeve.
