Home to Cedarwood

Colin Baker owns a book store and he’s back in Cedarwood with his son. He’s looking for a new start after a bad breakup, but he never expected that start to include his old crush, Officer Jordan Hargrove. Jordan hasn’t come out, but if he can score with Colin, then he’s all in. He’s dreamed of hot nights with the quiet man.

After a speeding ticket and some hurt feelings, sparks fly between the bookstore owner and the police officer, but Cedarwood is a small town with small town values, and a gay couple isn’t what the town expects. Colin’s created a support group for single gay fathers and he feels he’s making some difference in Cedarwood. Some folks in Cedarwood are fine with these two men reconnecting, but some aren’t.

Will the naysayers be enough to drive Colin and Jordan apart, or will they make their way together in this small town.

The Deal

How far would you go to help the person you cared about most? Would it matter if that person literally didn’t know you existed? Sierra is an Angel and she’s the talk of the immortal world. After years of watching him from afar she gives up heaven and strikes a deal to earn twelve weeks of humanity so she can help Steve. Steven O’Rourke is an incarcerated inmate, war veteran and a drug addict. She is simply unwilling to watch him self-destruct any longer and is prepared to risk everything for the chance to help him.

What she originally believes will be a relatively easy task is far more complex and complicated than she ever could have predicted. She’ll need all of her talents and abilities as an immortal to save Steve and even then she fears it won’t be enough. In the end it’s not her immortal abilities that help her get through to Steve, but her womanly charms.

Offering herself to him is not only an attempt to complete her objective, it’s also a chance to fulfill a fantasy of hers. She can only hope that once his body is satisfied he’ll be more agreeable, but even if he isn’t, she’ll have the memories to hold on to and she won’t have to wonder what his lips taste like anymore.

Will she be able to save someone so hell-bent on ruin or are there some things that even a committed and dedicated Angel can’t accomplish? Eternity is a very long time to wish things could be different.

Superpowered Love 7: The Playhouse | Katey Hawthorne

Superpowered Love 7: The Playhouse

Summer has been Lily McBride’s favorite time of year since she was a kid, because that’s when the Brookesville Playhouse opens its doors. Now that she’s an adult and works as their tech director, Lily wants more for her beloved Playhouse: a larger audience, a longer season, and exciting shows to draw new patrons.

This year, though, she also wants Genevieve Mason, a pretty starlet-in-the-making from the local university, recruited for the season’s tech crew. Genny throws her heart and soul into the place too, adding her own dreams of representation to the ‘must-have’ list, and using her sweet voice and surprising flare for pyrotechnics to draw the crowds in droves. They work so well together, it’s not long before their summer crush blossoms into a steamy affair.

Lily’s falling hard, but always feels like Genny’s holding something back. And then there’s the dreaded Brookesville Arts Council—supposed to be a support system for all things cultural, instead dragging the Playhouse down with their old-fashioned stubbornness. There are a lot of hurdles to jump and egos to deflate before they can get what they want, both for the theater and from each other.

Begin Again | Brien Michaels

Begin Again

Ever since her husband left her, Anna Pearson has devoted her entire life to her children, leaving little time for anything else. It’s a quiet, sexless life, but one Anna has grown used to over the last decade. But now that her sexy neighbor is back in town for Spring Break, all of that is about to change.

Wyatt McCray has wanted to sleep with Anna since high school. The problem has always been that she was too old for him, and what woman wants a younger man? But everything about her—from her impressive height, down to the way she can take control of practically any situation—turns him on. He can’t help it.

Making your dreams come true takes time, and Wyatt only has a week. A week to make Anna see him as the man he is. A week to break through the walls she’s put up to protect herself. It won’t be easy, but he knows he can do it. He’s nothing if not persistent, and he knows Anna can’t resist him forever.
