The Strength of Love | Serena Akeroyd

The Strength of Love

Forced apart by society’s inability to handle the admittedly unusual relationship Gia Jefferson has with Luke Gray and Josh Henderson, she’s the one left to deal with the consequences of being unorthodox. Rather than pout, she bravely decides to deal with the aftermath of her past. An aftermath that has to remain secret, even from the men she adores and trusts with her very life. Such secrets can destroy the foundations of any partnership, but one as finely tuned as their throuple is even more delicate and more susceptible to strain.

Secrets are a way of life for Gia, but they’re a hard limit for a man like Josh, whose career has made him paranoid. With her mother’s life on the line, Gia is left with few options, putting their relationship straight on the tipping point.

When revelations from Josh’s past slither in from out of nowhere, and with Luke’s appeal still up in the air, Gia’s men flounder in the face of her sudden need for secrecy. Can the trio make it work or will life’s curveball decimate the strength of their love?

A Little Bedtime Story 1: A Little Indulgence | Roxy Harte

A Little Bedtime Story 1: A Little Indulgence

Koko is a Lolita J-Pop mega star, facing a Eurasian Tour after the death of her guardian. Mentally, physically, and emotionally not ready to face a grueling road trip, her doctors insist she renege on her professional obligations, but an attempt to delay the tour results in threats from her record label’s owner.

Julian Van Zant is an aging rock star, who had one great experience in his life that outshone all others: an age-play relationship with a woman named Angélique. However, she fled for a normal vanilla life.

A chance encounter with a woman he knows only by reputation leaves him worried about her safety. When she offers him the chance of a lifetime to be both her travel companion and Daddy, it seems like he’s finally been given a second chance.

Will Koko’s learning that Julian and his brother Liam are a package deal ruin everything? And will once burnt and far less-forgiving Liam be willing to risk his heart to the little who has the power to rip him to shreds?

  • Note: Although the protagonist, Koko, is well beyond the age of consent, she presents part time as a “little”; that is, she acts like a young girl. The sex in this series takes place between consenting adults, but those with a history of childhood sexual abuse or incest may find this triggering.

The Moonlight Market | Aidee Ladnier

Moonlight Market

College senior Cory Long tracked his missing sister to the magical Moonlight Market to bring her home. Instead, he found a disorienting world of performers and hawkers, bizarre sights and sounds, and one very familiar showman, Sanderson Beets. Like a drowning man, he latched onto Sanderson, trusting him to navigate the twists and turns of the Market as unerringly as he had steered Cory to passion in their furtive trysts on campus.

But Sanderson was tired of being the quickie in the alley.

Sanderson Beets had escaped the Moonlight Market to attend college, hoping to settle into a normal life, maybe meet someone and fall in love. To obtain that new life he made a dangerous bargain. And when the sinister woman known as the Weaver of Dreams is involved, second chances always come with strings attached…and sacrifices. Sanderson’s debt has come due, and the only payment he has to offer is Cory, and their chance at a relationship.

Portland's Men 3: Ascend | Michelle King

Portland’s Men 3: Ascend

Bohai Bradley Tran. Illegally imported and placed into service by a ring of pedophiles when his mother conveniently vanished, and who aged up enough to fight his way out before a cull. Since then he’s been living the only way he knows how: using his body as a commodity.

Diego Villanueva. College student, tattoo artist, judoka and younger brother of a vice cop. Ideally, life should be interesting, but lately he’s been a glorified shuttle driver for visiting extended family on their visits to Portland, Oregon.

Three lives converge, an assembly born of violence and hate. One wants to destroy, one wants to heal, and one wants to live. The balance of power is poised on a knife’s edge—the very knife clutched in the hands of a killer.

  • Note: Ascend was previously released under another title by another publisher, but has been revised and re-edited in this version.
