Trustworthy | Astrid Amara

Trustworthy

Ten years ago, lovers and best friends Ivo Toreli and Robert Mackenzie were separated by death.

But sometimes life gives you second chances. Life…and a lot of cybernetic enhancements.

Trust Agent 505 may not remember who he was before he worked security for Trust Insurance, but now his prisoner thinks he knows him. This revolutionary named “Mack,” who has stolen one of Trust’s prized possessions, seems to think Agent 505 is named “Ivo,” someone from his past. Someone he once loved more than anyone on any of the inhabited worlds.

Ivo doesn’t remember any of it, of course. But if he’s going to get Trust’s property back from the revolutionaries, he’s going to have to play along.

And if playing along also means sleeping with a handsome, humorous, and slightly dangerous ex-soldier, all the better, right?

Barloc | E.L. Esch

Barloc

Through blurry eyes, Noah Barloc stares out at a world torn asunder by chaos and war. He’s been wandering in it far too long, alone and starving. He slumps down beside the rubble of some building, prepared to accept the end. The shadowy figure of a man appears on the horizon right before Noah’s world goes dark. Noah awakens in this man’s home, and learns the world is not so broken as he thought. Mankind has built cities underground and is thriving. Noah looks to his savior, Ban Reed, for guidance in this new world.

Ban is a hardened survivor of the Last War. He makes his living building bionic limbs for other survivors who, like him, lost limbs to the War, and hides his true, caring nature behind a cold, sarcastic facade. But for reasons unknown to Noah and Ban’s friends, Ban invites Noah into his home to recuperate, and then teaches Noah the trade of building exceptional bionics so that he can support himself.

A recent bad breakup turns Ban from a one-man show into a loose cannon that brings home a new sexual partner every night. Noah has come to care for Ban, to see past his cold exterior into that warm, caramel center. Noah can’t stand hearing the sounds of Ban’s nightly sexual romps, and can’t help wondering why Ban refuses him when he’s the one willing to give Ban the love and devotion he knows deep down that Ban wants.

Croft Holidays E-Boxed Set

Ceri Grenelle’s holiday trilogy, the Croft Holiday series, is now available in a convenient e-boxed set!

Trick or Treat or Kiss Me
Nettie Croft works tirelessly making sure people like and appreciate her, but her world is thrown off balance when she meets her sexy but rude new neighbor. She’s determined to get him to like her, but the more time they spend together, the more they argue. Nettie has to admit the dashing man might be the first she can’t win over, a thought she can’t get enough of, just like she can’t get enough of him.

Josh Dellinger just moved to a small Connecticut town to escape big city living and his nightmare of an ex-wife. He needs time and space to be himself, a plan that is thrown away the second he meets his determined new neighbor. She brings him cookies. No decent man can say no to a woman with cookies, especially one as gorgeous and thrilling as Nettie.

Nosy neighbors, a ridiculously sexy Zorro costume, and an old fashioned high school dance bring Josh and Nettie together, but will the shadows of Josh’s divorce and Nettie’s need for approval spook them for good, or will the romantic atmosphere of toilet papered trees and egged houses be enough to make them choose treats and kisses?

Soon after laughing at Mitch’s soaking wet clothes, and double checking to make sure Armie is alive and well, a steamy connection is forged between the three acquaintances.

Mitch wants to hide their ménage from the public, much to Armie and Leighanne’s dismay, but he negotiates and asks they at least have the week leading to the first night of Hanukkah to themselves.
