A Matter of Disagreement

The rise of mechanical animation, and its popularity at court, is threatening to end Andrea’s scholarly pursuits of spell craft and literature—and force him to let go of his assistants, who depend on him to support their families. In retaliation against the field that is ruining his life, Andrea begins to campaign against it. The efforts gain him notoriety, but do not solve his financial dilemmas.

When he is dragged to a party by his brother, he comes face to face with the man who pioneered mechanical animation: Leon Gregory de la Marche VI, Marquis de la Marche. And he is not at all what Andrea expected.

Body Option by Talya Andor

Body Option

For five years, Grant Badu has been part of a solid fighting team with the Gemini Suit called Trefoil Argent. Together, they fly and fight so effectively, their combat record so impressive, that they’ve become informally known as the Infallible Duo.

When a case containing classified military innovations is stolen and shot down in the foothills of disputed border territory, Grant and Argent are tapped for its swift recovery. But the mission requires pilot Argent to take on the one cybernetic option he’s been avoiding, for reasons even Grant doesn’t know.

Nessie dreams of escaping her sheltered life to become a mechanical engineer with mechas. But wanting and doing are two very different things, and outer confidence hides inner fears—until she meets Joy.

Fire and Soul by Siobhan Crosslin

Fire and Soul

As children, Temsha and his twin brother were kidnapped, their parents murdered, and forced to become sky force pilots for the notorious Lord Jheghda. Their younger brother was sold off to become an anam, a companion and power source for pilots, and if they are lucky they get to see him every three years.

After he nearly kills their latest anam, Temsha is at his limit. He is tired of being a slave, tired of worrying constantly about the brother he has not seen for six years, and tired of burning out anams. When they are assigned a new anam, Temsha tries to resist getting close, because one more loss will be the one that breaks him.

Note: While there is no incest, the brothers do share a lover.

Gabe Dumas and Dave Cortez are officers in the Mech Enforcer Division of the NYPD. If Gabe wishes they did more than work together, well, that’s his problem. He’d rather have him as a friend and partner than nothing at all, and there’s no one better to have at his back when the streets get ugly.

During a raid on the Diamondbacks, a notorious and dangerous gang tearing up the city, everything goes sideways and it’s Gabe who comes out the worse for it. Furious, devastated, Dave is determined to have revenge on the men who nearly killed Gabe.

Wings of the Stars

After a horrific accident during a mecha showcase event, Tarle is shunned by the robotics community and forced into hiding. Unable to abandon mecha entirely, he starts building a new robot in secret.

Starr is a porn star. He’s used to the open admiration of his fans and the derision of his detractors, but the bombing of his house is more than he can take. Desperate to escape, he runs away to a dead-end town at the edge of space, where he is taken in by Tarle.

On a return trip to Earth, Peter collapses from illness right as he touches down, the unwitting victim of the illegal actions of a scientist who was part of the Phobos Initiative.

Though the gamble succeeds, one of the leviathans vanishes with a valuable human, straining an already tenuous alliance. Her caretaker Nils needs to find her as quickly as possible to redeem himself before his superiors. His search is further burdened by Dastyaf, a furious human warlord and liability in the marine realm.

Then the treaty is stolen, and time is rapidly running out, and it will take all the ingenuity Axel can muster to prevent a war.

With Pride

When his sister falls ill, Kristof is ordered to assume a duty never meant for him: become the Duke of Stehlmore and marry a notorious Prince of the Blood. It is one of the oldest honors and duties undertaken by his family, but Kristof feels only resentment that he must leave behind all he knows to serve an arrogant half-demon.

His resentment must be set aside, however, when evil is found lurking far too close to the castle—an evil that has many pieces, controlled by someone they cannot find and who always seems one step ahead of them. Someone who seems to think that demons are little more than toys …

With Pride is Book 2 of the Princes of the Blood series. Book 1, Of Last Resort, is also on sale for 15% off until 8:00 p.m Eastern Time on April 15.

In the Gutter, there are only two ways for a girl to earn a living—among the trash or on her back. When Hart decides that’s not good enough for her, she takes on the high stakes world of no-holds-barred fighting. There’s just one problem: women aren’t allowed in the ring.

Hair cut short and dressed in her father’s old clothes, Hart ventures into the Alley and the world of arena fighting. There she meets Ruby, the daughter of the Arena owner and a brilliant fighter in her own right. When she offers Hart the chance for friendship, Hart cannot resist.

But Ruby thinks Hart is a man, and as she and Ruby grow closer, it gets harder and harder to maintain the façade…

Scorpion Blues The Calm Before If You're Reading This... Rocking Hard: Volume 02 Second Star to the Right Of Last Resort

Now Available! The Oracle’s Hatchling by Mell Eight

The Oracle's Hatchling

Ling is hated because his birth killed his mother. He hopes that testing will ease his troubles—either his rank will be so low that everyone forgets about him, or it will be so high they’ll be forced to respect him. What he doesn’t expect is to walk out of the testing chamber with an egg emblazoned on his back. Laughed out of the Monastery, Ling hides himself in Altnoia, where he becomes embroiled in a plot to overthrow King Edan and the Oracle who supports him.

The ringleader behind the plot is Prince Damarion, son of the evil despot who forced King Edan to flee in the first place—but his motives are not anything that Ling could have anticipated. Neither could he anticipate a friendship, or what that friendship could become, and the choices it would force him to make.

Rights of Inheritance

When Junior Scribe Gareth is given the unenviable task of tracking down Keiran to inform him that he and his street performers are not to make themselves known during an important trade visit, he expects the task to be unpleasant. He does not expect to be intrigued by the mysterious, elusive man that is rumored to be a bastard prince, and whom many say would make a better king.

Neither does he expect that one frustrating meeting in the city slums would send him and Keiran stumbling into the path of a murder—and a conspiracy to kill the king.

Hair cut short and dressed in her father’s old clothes, Hart ventures into the Alley and the world of arena fighting. There she meets Ruby, the daughter of the Arena owner and a brilliant fighter in her own right. When she offers Hart the chance for friendship, Hart cannot resist.

But Ruby thinks Hart is a man, and as she and Ruby grow closer, it gets harder and harder to maintain the façade…

A Matter of Disagreement

The rise of mechanical animation, and its popularity at court, is threatening to end Andrea’s scholarly pursuits of spell craft and literature—and force him to let go of his assistants, who depend on him to support their families. In retaliation against the field that is ruining his life, Andrea begins to campaign against it. The efforts gain him notoriety, but do not solve his financial dilemmas.

When he is dragged to a party by his brother, he comes face to face with the man who pioneered mechanical animation: Leon Gregory de la Marche VI, Marquis de la Marche. And he is not at all what Andrea expected.

Now Available! Second Star to the Right by A.F. Henley

Second Star to the Right

Be it unrequited fascination with his straight best friend or impossible fantasies of rekindled interest with his heartbreaking ex, Mason has no clue why the perfect connection seems to keep slipping through his fingers. When another lonely holiday seems like too much weight to shoulder, Mason gives up on romance and seeks out the next best thing—rented company. Jack is everything a person could want in an escort: willing, hot, and built like an angel.

Mason can’t resist. After all, who wouldn’t be interested in a guy who loves kid’s movies, is a self-professed Peter Pan, and has no problem throwing caution to the wind at a moment’s notice. But then interest quickly blooms into a whole new emotion—an emotion that Mason knows far too well, especially when Jack has no interest in returning it, preferring to keep his heart safely tucked away in Neverland.

Of Last Resort

In a kingdom ravaged by the beasts and terrors of an ancient war, the only hope against them is the army of mixed-blood beings known as the King’s Legion: dragoons, shadowmarch, sorcerers, titans … and the Princes of the Blood, nigh-invincible warriors of fearsome magic and strength, their only weakness a need for pure human blood.

When his brother runs away, Raffé agrees to undergo the Blooding, but he is a pale imitation of his strong, capable brother. No one expects him to survive and become a Prince, merely to die to save the rest of his family and preserve honor.

But runaways and weaklings are the least of the kingdom’s concerns when an ancient evil returns with new tricks, and their only hope lies with knowledge long lost and a fierce bond forged in darkness …

Fallen Angel | Kayla Bain-Vrba
When Jackson lands a job to join his favorite band on tour for a few weeks, he think he’s finally gotten his chance. An unexpected attraction to the band’s frontman, however, adds complications to the tour that neither of them wants. Trying to work through it only seems to heap more problems upon their head, and Jackson starts to wonder if he’s finally gotten his big break, or if he’s just going to be left broken.

My Truest Love | Mell Eight
By day, Cole is the lead singer of popular band The Four Kings, traveling the galaxies to sing to their adoring fans. Though a glamorous life on the surface, it’s far from easy and even more dangerous than some would guess, because his real job title isn’t lead vocals—it’s spy.

Capsicum Head | L.J. LaBarthe
Determined to get their band’s name out there, Jon, his lover Pete, and their bandmates decide that taking gigs in other towns and cities is the way to do it. Their first attempt, however, is a complete and total disaster, leaving them all leery of a second attempt. If nothing else, it will be an adventure.

Song of the Soul | Cassandra Pierce
Centuries ago, Hawk performed for a King so impressed he turned Hawk into an immortal monster. In the fall out, Hawk lost his lover forever. In present day Hawk is still a performer, though the music and the audience have greatly changed.

Koby is a graduate student specializing in the cohabitation of dead and living cells in a single body, a course of study that requires he spend two years working in the labs at the parium mines in Antarctica, where he will assist in experiments conducted on the vampire prisoners kept there.

Expecting little more than a tedious assignment, despite the dangers of the environment and the dangerous vampires sentenced to the mines for life, Koby instead discovers a dome of horrors, where the persons in charge cannot be trusted and the greatest victims are the prisoners—and the most incongruous place to discover a new love. If he cannot solve the problems destroying the dome from the inside, the vampires won’t be the only ones to die.

Small town life in the 1950s wasn’t easy for Roger, born into a rigid family headed by a preaching father, struggling to balance expectations with his growing feelings for his best friend, Billy.

Rocking Hard: Volume 2

Less Than Three Press presents the second of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Fallen Angel | Kayla Bain-Vrba
When Jackson lands a job to join his favorite band on tour for a few weeks, he think he’s finally gotten his chance. An unexpected attraction to the band’s frontman, however, adds complications to the tour that neither of them wants. Trying to work through it only seems to heap more problems upon their head, and Jackson starts to wonder if he’s finally gotten his big break, or if he’s just going to be left broken.

My Truest Love | Mell Eight
By day, Cole is the lead singer of popular band The Four Kings, traveling the galaxies to sing to their adoring fans. Though a glamorous life on the surface, it’s far from easy and even more dangerous than some would guess, because his real job title isn’t lead vocals—it’s spy.

Capsicum Head | L.J. LaBarthe
Determined to get their band’s name out there, Jon, his lover Pete, and their bandmates decide that taking gigs in other towns and cities is the way to do it. Their first attempt, however, is a complete and total disaster, leaving them all leery of a second attempt. If nothing else, it will be an adventure.

Song of the Soul | Cassandra Pierce
Centuries ago, Hawk performed for a King so impressed he turned Hawk into an immortal monster. In the fall out, Hawk lost his lover forever. In present day Hawk is still a performer, though the music and the audience have greatly changed. When he sees his old lover in the crowd, Hawk dares to hope—but hope turns to despair when the man claims no knowledge of him, and new information from his past comes to light, threatening to truly keep the lovers apart forever.

Acceptance | Alessandra Ebulu
One year ago Phil lost his brother, and since then he has faltered in his position as lead vocals and guitarist for his band. When he finally collapses on stage, he is made to take time off. One night in a bar he meets Lars, a student and songwriter of amazing talent—and on the receiving end of a heartbreak and ultimatum that need the changes and hope that Phil wants to provide.

Second Star to the Right

Be it unrequited fascination with his straight best friend or impossible fantasies of rekindled interest with his heartbreaking ex, Mason has no clue why the perfect connection seems to keep slipping through his fingers. When another lonely holiday seems like too much weight to shoulder, Mason gives up on romance and seeks out the next best thing—rented company. Jack is everything a person could want in an escort: willing, hot, and built like an angel.

Mason can’t resist. After all, who wouldn’t be interested in a guy who loves kid’s movies, is a self-professed Peter Pan, and has no problem throwing caution to the wind at a moment’s notice. But then interest quickly blooms into a whole new emotion—an emotion that Mason knows far too well, especially when Jack has no interest in returning it, preferring to keep his heart safely tucked away in Neverland.

Of Last Resort

In a kingdom ravaged by the beasts and terrors of an ancient war, the only hope against them is the army of mixed-blood beings known as the King’s Legion: dragoons, shadowmarch, sorcerers, titans … and the Princes of the Blood, nigh-invincible warriors of fearsome magic and strength, their only weakness a need for pure human blood.

When his brother runs away, Raffé agrees to undergo the Blooding, but he is a pale imitation of his strong, capable brother. No one expects him to survive and become a Prince, merely to die to save the rest of his family and preserve honor.

But runaways and weaklings are the least of the kingdom’s concerns when an ancient evil returns with new tricks, and their only hope lies with knowledge long lost and a fierce bond forged in darkness …

The elven city-state of Airgead abounds with modern, magic-based technology, but has not overcome its antiquated views of race and class. Riagan refused to let such outdated views stop him in his climb from the streets all the way to the top of society—but that climb has brought more than a few enemies with it.

Seduced by Riagan at a party, Elisedd soon realizes he’s just one more pawn, one more toy, and he refuses to be hurt ever again. But try as he might, he cannot seem to escape Riagan’s hold, and instead finds himself dragged deeper into a world of passion, scheming, and a growing anger that threatens to tear Airgead apart…

Hired to help look for prime minister’s missing son, Gabriel ‘Scorpion’ Kelly quickly realizes the job is not going to be an easy one—not long after they enter the deadly wastelands skirting the edge of civilization, all of the search party is killed, save for Scorpion and one other man, the frustrating Love Ferrier.

Despite the ominous start, and the fact they can’t seem to get along for more than minutes at a time, Scorpion and Love press on in search of the missing boy and the ruthless killers who took him. But even as they strive to navigate their miserable surroundings—and their personal differences—outside forces threaten to keep them permanently apart.
