Crash Pad

Physician Remy Marshall has two loves: Emergency Medicine and running. Work doesn’t leave much time to meet guys, and most seem more interested in his bank account than him. With a week off to train for a marathon, Remy plans to make the most of his precious vacation. The last thing he needs is a distraction.

Jamie Sutton is new to the area. He hopes to make a fresh start after leaving an abusive relationship with an orthopedic surgeon. He’s got a new job as a massage therapist and wants to meet some nice guys. Against his better judgment, Jamie decides the best way to meet a cute rollerblader he’s seen in the park is on wheels.

With attention on his watch and not where he’s going, Remy crashes into Jamie and fractures the first-time rollerblader’s ankle. Jamie has no one to help him after the injury; Remy proposes Jamie stay with him. Jamie is reluctant, but it’s a better option than staying with the odd guy in the neighboring motel room. As the two get acquainted, Jamie’s past comes calling. Remy discovers the prize he really wants isn’t a medal in a marathon, but the man right in front of him.

 

In the Middle of Nowhere

be_inthemiddleofnowhere

Homeless, plagued by nightmares from an abusive childhood, nineteen-year-old Tyler Bishop does whatever he can to escape his pain. Drugs, alcohol, everything’s game—at least until handsome Dean Henderson struts into his life and shows him a better way. For two years, Dean’s love and friendship give Tyler the strength to face his demons instead of running.

Then tragedy strikes.

When a drunk driver kills his parents and severely injures his eleven-year-old sister, Emily, Dean panics. With Emily facing years of extensive—not to mention expensive—rehabilitation, he needs health insurance fast. Forcing himself back into the closet, Dean drops out of college and enlists in the Army. For two years, he plays the perfect soldier, but the pressure of pretending to be someone he’s not is suffocating.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed.

Out on walkabout after a painful emotional setback, Tyler isn’t prepared for the backlash of seeing Dean again. Face to face for the first time in five years, sparks—and tempers!—fly. Before sanity catches up with them, they’re locked in a fierce kiss. But with Dean about to deploy and Tyler wrestling new demons is a reconciliation possible? Or is their reunion doomed before it even begins?

Author’s Note: 
Every individual deserves to be respected for who they are, but unfortunately, not everyone shares this belief. Far too many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth report they’ve been harassed or assaulted because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and as a mom of a girl who’s not like the other girls her age, that breaks my heart. So in her honor, I’m donating 10 percent of the royalties from this book to The Trevor Project, a 24-hour suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth, with the hope that, one day, organizations like this will no longer be needed.

Reining Him In

Perry Jameson begins his new job as a ranch manager at the Wright Stables with the goal of returning the place to its original glory. He throws all of his effort into building a home and establishing a career. Being seduced by the ranch owner’s grandson could throw a serious wrench in the works.

Cory Matthews is a world champion in horse reining. Well known for his arrogance and talent, he can train any horse to win, and he knows he’s turned the sexy older hunk’s head, but he can’t seem to get Perry come around.

The two men butt heads on more than one occasion, the way two stubborn, proud studs will do. Maybe looking past their differences to work together will give them a new perspective on each other. Maybe, just maybe, it’ll help Cory rein Perry in.

 

The Roommate Situation

zr_theroommatesituation

College freshman Shane Hahn finds himself unexpectedly shuffled to a new dorm room—which is fine by him, but his over-involved mother takes one look at toothpick-chewing, motorcycle-riding Derek McClain, his new roommate, and gets on the phone with the school. The school requires that Shane be the one to file the room-change paperwork, but Shane’s reluctant.

He’s attracted to Derek’s independence, even though that independence means Derek has to pay his own way through college, which he does by making leather products (you know: belts, wallets… bondage gear) and selling it online. Shane isn’t even allowed to work while he’s in school, much less join a band, which is what he really wants to do with his life. Unfortunately, his parents are holding his guitar hostage until he can prove he’s taking his future seriously.

When he decides he needs a way to come up with cash—the kind his parents won’t find out about—so he can buy a guitar his parents can’t take away from him, he turns to Derek with what sounds like a win-win solution: he’ll model bondage gear for Derek’s ebay photos, Derek will get more sales, and Shane will get a cut. The one thing he doesn’t factor into his plan is the giddy stomach-flip feeling Derek McClain causes whenever he walks in the room—and what that might mean for them when Derek starts locking leather cuffs on his wrists.
