May 4: New Releases, New Paperbacks, and Last Chance sales!

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

New this week! 

Fur, Feathers, and Claws Good Together

Check out this week's sweet hurt/comfort romances!

  • Fur, Feathers, and Claws by David Connor: Three young men, from very different homes, just coming into their own sexuality, bond at a time when information about homosexuality is scarce to the average teen. Their strong connection cannot survive high school and heartache, however, and their triangle collapses under the weight of prejudice and a need to escape. 

    Ten years later, Tucker is bitter and hurt by all the tragedy in his life since those long ago happier days. Reclusive, somewhat animalistic, and completely content to stay that way, he is brought up short by an unexpected confrontation with the past and feelings that won't stay buried.
     

  • Good Together by Valentina Heart: A legacy of bullying and insecurity has left its mark on Troy, affecting all his interactions in the present. Adam is an ex-hockey player turned tattoo artist who knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after it. But no matter how hard he tries, time and again he sends the easily scared Troy running.

    Though both are nearly convinced it could never work between them, they agree to give it one more try. But then bad luck and fate conspire to leave Adam floundering to reach Troy while Troy worries over losing touch with Adam.

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

New this week! 

Love vs. the Limelight To Terminator, With Love

Check out this week's fun, action-packed LGBTQA releases!

  • Love vs. the Limelight by Manda Olie: Rick Campbell is the Hollywood Heartthrob who has it all: a great career, an excellent agent, and fantastic friends. Unfortunately, he also has a secret that could potentially ruin his success. His reputation as a lady-killer is completely fabricated in order to ensure he keeps getting work. 

    His silence when it comes to the truth may cost him Christian, the love of his life, who's grown tired of being a dirty little secret and has issued Rick an ultimatum: tell the truth or lose Christian. Heartbroken and afraid, harassed by reporters and adrift in a world that's slowly changing, Rick has to choose between the life he's worked hard to build and the man he doesn't want to live without.

  • To Terminator, With Love by Wes Kennedy: Dexter Wu's life is hectic, but he's managing—mostly. He's on the verge of finishing grad school, and that means putting the final touches on his number one project: HAL, a social robot and children's storytelling companion. But his best friend is leaving the country for good, his birthday's coming up, he's swamped with studying for finals, and he hasn't slept in days.

    He's also going to destroy the world.

    At least, his robot is, according to the possibly untrustworthy Agency, an organization whose mission is to protect the world at all costs. After his birthday party turns into a fight for his life, Dexter's simple life of fast food and Netflix binges is replaced by a glitchy oracle, the world's douchiest secret agents, and an ever-increasing chain of conspiracies.

    With the help of Andre, a mysterious and disenchanted young agent turned rogue, Dexter sets out to plead his case to the Director in an effort to get his life back to what counts as normal—but he should know by now nothing is ever so easy.

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

New this week!

Fall Tantalus

Check out this week's amazing LGBTQA releases, including:

  • Fall by Michelle Chow: Jeremy's always looked after his little brother, Callum, to make sure he's safe. When Callum wanders too far into the woods, and finds himself at the mercy of two wolf shifters, Jeremy's forced to act quickly. It's not ideal waking up in a strange house, with two shifters that scare him more than he'll admit, but it's temporary. Or it should be, until Jeremy realizes getting rid of the wolves is far easier said than done. (Gay, Paranormal, Contemporary)
  • Tantalus by Albert Nothlit: In the aftermath of a nasty fight, Kyle is forced to leave home to take up an apprenticeship he doesn't want–on another planet. Upon arrival, he follows a strange compulsion, to leave the compound, only to nearly get himself killed. Kyle is told he's fit only for the mining colonies, where he'll be little more than a slave. Distraught but helpless, Kyle counts down the days until his departure. He's distracted from his misery, however, by the same compulsion that first drove him from the compound, a presence in his mind that seems to be coming from the local lifeform held in the lab… (Gay, Science Fiction)

Skeletons in the Closet It’s no secret that Riley used to practice dark magic, but he gave it up gladly when he fell in love with Landon. But Riley has spent the last year trying to shield Landon from just how dark his past really was, desperate to keep him safe and hold on to their fragile relationship.

Then Dyami, Riley’s old partner, returns to town and threatens to kill them both if Riley doesn’t return to his old ways…

Circus Games Nessie is overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done to manage the Mecha Mania business she now owns with her father.

    • What a Difference a Day Makes by B.A. Huntley
      A day can last an hour or an eternity, as three friends learn in the final moments leading up to wedding they'll be attending—one as the bride, two as the bridesmaids. Allison waits impatiently for her wedding night, the first night she and Jason will be together, worried that he won't trust her to see his body. Lane reconnects with her on again, off again girlfriend, and Slim meets Joy, who tempts her into the sort of fling that's never interested Slim before.
    • Where Loyalties Lie by Logan Taylor
      When his homeland is conquered by invading barbarians, Nessir winds up not dead, but instead serving the new kings much as he once served his own. Though at first he is terrified of what they will do, across the palace and through the kingdom, Abaidas and Ophion swiftly begin to make improvements their predecessor neglected. And though a married man should be off limits, Nessir finds himself falling for Abaidas anyway—and is astonished when the interest proves to be mutual, and to learn that Ophion has no objections to Abaidas taking a lover.

      But just as Nessir is settling into his strange, new life, he stumbles across an assassination plot—a plot he cannot speak of for fear of his sister's life, unless he can convey it in a way that will not get him caught. In an act of desperation, he throws himself at Ophion, and under guise of being lovers the two work to protect the man they both love. And all the while Nessir tries to ignore the growing wish that Ophion's affections were not merely a ruse…

    • Ruby Red Booty Shorts and a Louisville Slugger by Lexi Ander, Book 1 of I.O.N. – Eager to escape the shadows of a tragic loss, Diego built a new life with his best friend, Beck. When he finally decided one night to admit that he's in love with Beck, that new life takes a new, hot and happy turn. But happiness is easily shattered, as he's learned all too well, and this time it's ruined by the arrival of a mysterious package and then men bent on violence.

      Memories of a dead brother and an untouchable drug lord rise inevitably to the surface, and Diego dreads that the man he loves is mired in the world that Diego tried to escape. But Beck's secrets aren't so simple, and neither is the world in which Diego has been living…

    • Written in Stone by David Connor – After the end of a bad relationship and the death of his dog, Geoffrey is left with a choice: live the rest of his life alone or start over. But starting over is easier said than done, and alone in the woods one night Geoffrey writes those very words on a rock.

      To his surprise, when he returns later he discovers someone has replied. The lengthy written conversation that ensues over days leaves Geoffrey less lonely, and also quite hopeful and intrigued about the future and the identity of his mysterious new friend.

    • Pictures and Memories by Lauren E. Mitchell – Tim is finally enjoying his gap year at the age of thirty-three, starting out in Asia with plans to go from there to Europe. But his itinerary didn't account for Jaye, fresh out of high school and on his own gap year.
