At first glance, Derek seems to have everything. He is married to the love of his life, Aaron, and it’s as if they are perfect for each other. But Derek has a secret...a secret he has kept hidden from his husband for years. Derek wakes up every morning hoping his past doesn’t catch up to him. But when the followers of The Dark Lord rise again, and the world is threatened, Derek finds himself forcefully pulled back into the life he swore never to return to…a life of magic, and danger at every corner.

Excerpt:
It was nearing midnight and a man hurriedly walked through a dark corridor holding a burning candle in his hand, excited to tell the Dark Lord of his success. The most loyal followers of the Dark Lord had been waiting for this moment for years. The man stopped at a huge wooden door, placed the candle on a stone shelf, and took out a knife from inside his black cloak. He placed the blade of the knife on his right hand and pressed down. A sharp pain entered his body as the blade dug into his skin and blood poured out. Placing his bloody palm onto the wooden door, he felt a surge of energy enter his body. His offering to the Dark Lord had been accepted.
The door creaked as the man entered the giant room where he saw three hooded figures standing in front of a huge statue of a serpent. He bowed his head in front of the statue in respect. The room was silent, save for the sound of a blue flame burning at the base of the statue.
“What brings you here, Dmitri?” asked the leader of the coven…a coven made entirely of followers loyal to the Dark Lord.
“I bring you news, great one,” Dmitri answered.
Dmitri looked up at the hooded figures. “I have finally found the being you seek,” said Dmitri. “I have found the one you require to summon the Darati.”
Dmitri’s heart started to race as his news was received by silence. He had expected them to bestow him with power. “Are you sure?”
“Yes,” Dmitri nodded his head.
“Where is he?”
“Outside,” Dmitri answered.
“Bring him here this instant!”
The door opened again and Dmitri entered the room with a handsome man wearing a white robe. He had red hair down to his waist, and his pale skin seemed to glow in the firelight. His piercing green eyes looked at the hooded figures standing in front of the serpent statue. He knew why he was here and he wanted to please the Dark Lord.
“How did you find him?”
“I came to him,” the man answered before Dmitri could say a word. “I was curious to know about his intentions.”
“You shall be rewarded for your work, Dmitri. The Dark Lord always rewards those who are loyal.”

COWBOY KEEPER

Blaecleah Brothers 2

Billy Thornton is a known troublemaker. He's spent the better part of his life doing whatever his brother Clem wanted him to--from intimidating people to stealing from them. The consequences if he resists are life-threatening. Billy has spent more than one night healing after his brother got pissed at him.

The one thing Billy can't do is allow Rourke Blaecleah to be hurt. Billy has loved Rourke for as long as he can remember, even though he knows it is wrong. The only way he can deal with it is to do everything in his power to keep Clem away from Rourke, and that means putting himself in harm's way more than once.

When Rourke corners Billy one night and kisses him, things come to a head. Rourke realizes that the man he has been looking for all of his life is right under his nose. Billy finds that he might actually be able to experience what loving Rourke is like in real life and not just his fantasies. And both men realize that what they have found together has put their lives in danger because Clem is coming for them, and he's not happy.

On Kindle only! Not According to Plan by J.M. Snyder

Not According to Plan by J.M. Snyder is now available on the Kindle!

Blurb:

Jonathan Banks and Peter Giles have worked together for five years, business partners in a planning firm that bears both their names. From the moment Jonathan was hired, the attraction between the two men was instantaneous and mutual, but he was dating someone else at the time and turned down Peter’s advances.

Now Jonathan’s boyfriend is out of the picture, and he’d love nothing more than for Peter to ask him out again, but he knows his partner all too well. Peter doesn’t take rejection easily. He likes flirting with Jonathan, sure, but doesn’t want to take the chance of getting turned down a second time. He's satisfied with the way their friendship is, and fears anything more intimate might ruin what they already have.

But everything both men have planned and worked for together is threatened on a cold, wintry evening when Peter’s car won’t start and Jonathan has to give him a lift home. Can the two friends move past their own fears and trepidations, and begin to build a future together as partners outside the office?

Punk Rock-A-Bye Baby (Radical Rock Stars – Book Five)


She rocks my world.
He sets my soul on fire.
We’ve traveled down a bumpy road, but we’ve finally found the balance.
It’s time to bring a new little rock star into our lives.
I’m Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is the next chapter in our story.

Loving two people is never easy, and Tommy Blade fights every day to ensure that his wife and his lover know that he loves them both equally. A commitment ceremony solidifies their pledge to one another and brings them closer together.

Jessi Blade is a lucky girl. With animosity behind them, she and Angel share a more intimate relationship and their lives flourish. She has everything she ever wanted – except a baby.

Angel Garcia never thought he’d share his life with a woman, no less marry one in a commitment ceremony. When a baby joins their family, it makes him realize how much Jessi really means to him.

The road Tommy, Jessi and Angel travel is never an easy one. Just when they’re at their happiest, an accident may very well change the course of their lives.

This book is for mature audiences only.

“Punk Rock-A-Bye Baby,” Book Five in the Radical Rock Stars series, and a MUST READ by Jenna Galicki, is available from Amazon (Kindle Unlimited). Also available in print from Amazon.

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER: Flying High (Pacific Cove 2)


FLYING HIGH

Pacific Cove 2
AVAILABLE: Thursday, February 4th
Erotic Alternative Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, shape-shifters, HEA
When Joseph and Samuel Lake spot their mate while running through the woods, they know they can't leave without him. They have been looking for him their entire lives, but convincing the gorgeous man that they want him was turning out to be a lot harder than finding him.
Matthew Brooks knows he isn't the world's best catch. He's a little more plump than he'd like and has a very boring life as a paralegal. Finding two men that seem interested in him at the same time thrusts him firmly into fantasy land.
When someone starts coming after Matt, getting him to Pacific Cove seems like the safest idea, but to do that, they will have to explain to the man about bear shifters and mates and all that entails...and that might cause them to lose their mate faster than an assassin's bullet. 
Note: This book contains double anal penetration.
