But that is about to change. On a dare from his brother, twenty-three-year-old Dev Pierson breaks into the mansion's basement.

Much to Dev's surprise, after he explains why he's there, Laird invites him upstairs for a drink.

Slowly, a friendship develops between the two men. Then the question becomes, can Dev convince Laird to face his fears and end his reclusive existence? And if he makes the attempt, will Laird survive emotionally?

Written in the Stars by Brenna Lyons
Includes: Written in the Stars & The Master's Lover
61045 words, 276 pages
$12.99 ($10.39 on CreateSpace with coupon code)

On the world of Terra Set, where the night is twice as long as the day and the moon more powerful than the sun, live the Star Mages. Essential to supporting the crops that feed the masses, they are protected men, revered, yet still mistrusted.

An ancient myth tells of a female mage born at the Silver Minute. She holds a magic that, shared with a mate, will be unequaled. Riena is that mage.

A ruthless king will stop at nothing to force Riena to take his son as mate. Her life and freedom depend on one challenge--hide as a man.

Includes: The Master's Lover!

Mages' Law states that a Star Mage must reproduce, if he is able. King's Law allows a mage any sexual partners he wishes. The life of a male mage who prefers the company of other men on the sheets is far from easy, but what starts as a hard lesson in survival, ends up as a hard lesson of another sort.

Sons of Heaven by Brenna Lyons
Includes: Beldon & Unexpected Mates
118102 words, 566 pages
$21.49 ($17.19 on CreateSpace with coupon code)

We've talked about them for millennia. The Sons of Heaven came to Earth and lay with the Daughters of Man, spawning the heroes of old (or the monsters of old, depending on your mythos). They have been called angels. They have been called demons, the fallen, the devil... Somewhere behind the myths, there were men, winged men who came from the stars and took simple human women as mate. It is time for one modern human woman to discover who and what the Sons of Heaven were, and that discovery will change her life forever.

When Jannie Reynolds goes down the line into the deeper caverns in search of more artifacts depicting the winged god-man, she doesn't know a team member with a thirst for fame intends to cut her ropes. She doesn't know her life will be saved by alien technology or that she will stumble upon a five-thousand-year old winged alien in a stasis tube who doesn't know his colony has been destroyed. And she certainly doesn't know she's an alien crossbreed, as well.

The consulates on Earth have been established, but life is far from smooth and easy. Some days it seems that anything that CAN go wrong, does. Between legal problems with the Earth governments, chance encounters with unexpected results, and the tensions inherent in a male-heavy race fleeing extinction, there's rarely a dull moment in the consulate.

Meredith has been advocating for foster children for her entire career, so when the courts and child services conspire to remove an Earth-born Sakk child's wings, she'll risk jail to keep that from happening. She goes to the Sakk consulate seeking asylum for Alice and finds herself partaking of the same.

Hayley and Holly are as different as night and day, but the sisters have never been apart. When Hayley decides to indulge one of her younger sister's flights of fancy, little does she know they are going to become the belles of the Sakk ball.

When Beldon and Jannie return to Sakk, Sakkra (the younger Sakk prince) becomes emissary to the humans. Little does he know how difficult the job will be. Between armed attacks and political nightmares, it seems the prince can't even eat a meal without interruption. Enter Amy. She doesn't want to test as a match; she's happily engaged and happily human. She's only at the consulate to offer support to a friend who is testing, but when her friend turns out to be very human and Amy turns out not to be, her life falls apart.

When Amy's other cousins tested as too human to be matches, Jolene didn't bother. A one-night stand with Rietin (a wingless Sakk tracker and Amy's personal guard) ends with an unexpected pregnancy, but can Jo overcome her belief that Sakk men see all women as alike and find happiness with him?

Sandy has had a lousy year. Her POS boyfriend dumped her when she got pregnant. Her step-father kicked her out of the house, leaving her homeless. The shelter has only let her stay as long as she has, because she's pregnant. And now...the final straw. Her sonogram shows the baby she's carrying has wings. Her last chance for safety and stability is finding a home with the Sakk.

Last Chance for Love by Brenna Lyons
Includes: Last Chance for Love, In Her Ladyship's Service, Graham: Training the Earth-Born Lord, & Earth-Born Lord
137778 words, 622 pages
$23.49 ($18.79 on CreateSpace with coupon code)

Welcome to Kegin, a world dying from genetic decay. Every move to counter it has been a stop-gap measure...until now, Jole hopes.

Susan Braedan has no idea when she goes to bed one spring night that she will never see her home on Earth again. Susan is not a normal woman. She is not quite Human, not Human enough to reproduce with Human men. Susan is the last desperate attempt to save a dying world, and she has been chosen as Cross-Mate to Prince Jole. Raised by his Cross-Mate mother, Jole knows better than any man on Kegin how an Earth woman should be treated to win her love and respect, but can he accomplish that before his younger brother, Mik, can claim her for his own?

Mik has been raised with all Kell's hate and misinformation. He doesn't want to be that man anymore, but can he overcome his many mistakes, hold tight to his sanity, and start anew in a society that sees him as nothing but a madman and a criminal?

When Susan was taken through the gateway, she performed the most stunning disappearing act in history. Only signs of a struggle, strange boot-prints, and a smear of her blood were left behind, and no one had emerged from her apartment. Believing Susan is a pure-blood alien, the government searches her family for more of the same...and finds her cousin Alex, another third-generation Keen rebred. Held in captivity for two years, everything changes when the government finds another of their kind...a female...and puts Alex in close proximity with Lyssa.

Jelise is a child by Keen law, Prince Michael's ward. Jace's life is forfeit if he dares pursue her. On all of Kegin, he's her perfect match. He's stolen her from Earth and captured her heart. Now, she has two months to learn the laws that will bind them together.

Thanks to the assistance of Queen Susan, the Earth-Born males are coming home to Kegin to mate. Raised on Earth, these lords have never fit in with humans. They are about to find out why. They are not human but nearly perfect Keen men ready to father the children that will reverse centuries of genetic decay.

Justin was born on Earth, a misfit with a past he doesn't know about. When Hugam was discovered and the Earth authorities started persecuting Earth-born Keen, six Keen lords were brought home. On Justin's contract day, his real education begins. Renna married the Earth-born lord to bring children to Kegin and she wants those children--now.

Rites of Mating by Brenna Lyons
62609 words, 288 pages
$13.49 ($10.79 on CreateSpace with coupon code)

Twenty-one years ago, Jole and Susan had a set of twins. A year into maturity, the race is on. Keen nobles will go to almost any lengths to be the chosen mates of the re-bred royals. All either of them wants is to find a mate who will see him/her as a person and not a re-bred. Finding that is only half the fun.

Pushed by his family to form an advantageous re-bred marriage, Tirin has decided that the last thing he wants is a pampered princess in his life...until another suitor goes too far in pursuit of Princess Jenneane. Dragged into the insanity and intensity of her world, Tirin finds he wants nothing more than to claim his MAIDEN BRIDE, and Jenneane is that bride.

Berel has been raised as servant sister to the royal children, but her feelings for Joseph are anything but sisterly. She's been warned off by the nobles and has long since given up hope of having Joseph for her own. Can he change her mind by convincing her to a TRIAL MOON?

Matchmaker's Misery by Brenna Lyons
60919 words, 288 pages
$13.49 ($10.79 on CreateSpace with coupon code)

Cored's attempt to capture Pilar as his re-bred mate goes completely awry, leaving him exiled from Braeden Home and barred from pursuing Pilar, forcing him to re-examine his quest to regain his title and fortune. When Pilar pursues him, his life only gets more complicated. Will a Trial Moon save his neck or cook his goose?

Jearsen, damaged at birth, has been pampered and hidden away, an embarrassment to his noble family. Eve challenges him to stop accepting the assumptions about himself, to pursue the truth of his existence. But will those truths cause heartache or bliss for the two of them?

It's rare, but it happens--anaphylactic responses to the drop of the first egg. Kyra has sworn off men for life. Though Steden has always wanted her, he's been relegated to 'safe, male friend' for a decade. Then Kyra makes a startling request; she wants him to be the father of her child. Can a woman scarred to the act of love claim the man of her dreams?

He Loved Me by Carol Holland March
sensual contemporary horror MF/FF
5951 words, 33 pages
$0.99 in ebook

Jen is eighteen, lonely, and working as a waitress when handsome, charismatic Nick enters her life. They are drawn together like twin flames and begin an erotic affair that fulfills all Jen's sexual fantasies.

After Nick becomes obsessively jealous, Jen's world shrinks and she despairs of recovering her freedom. When she lets slip the name of her previous lover, a woman she left because Jen feared being initiated into the dark arts, Nick sets out to find and punish Marnie for daring to love Jen.

The hunt ends unexpectedly and Jen thinks she's finally free, but then she's haunted by a shape shifting creature howling outside her window. For the first time, Jen must decide if she will take charge of her future or remain bound to the dark side of erotic obsession.


Six months after I broke up with Marnie and two months after graduation, I found a job waiting tables at the Route 10 Diner. I had no experience waitressing, but the boss, Chuck, gave me the once-over, squinted his beady little eyes, smacked his lips a couple of times, and said he'd take me on a trial basis. It didn't pay much, but at least I made tips, and it trumped sitting at home trying to fill out college applications.

I'd been working there a couple months and was getting the hang of how to maximize my tips when the stranger sauntered into the diner a half-hour before closing. I changed my mind about leaving early as he draped himself over the green stool that had the hole I'd covered with black tape. When I smiled at him, his eyes crinkled and he raised his eyebrows as if he wanted to ask me something, but maybe felt a little shy. He took a long time with his peach pie, pushing it around the plate while he kept glancing at the mirror behind the counter. He was way too cute for me, and his gaze felt like sunburn on the back of my neck.

Chuck almost had a stroke when I offered to stay to clean the coffee pot. I snuck looks at my customer as I worked. Dark, curly hair I wanted to run my fingers through. Deep-set green eyes. Kind eyes, which showed what kind of judgment I had.

He asked my name.

"I'm Jen," I said.

"Nick." He offered his hand. Strong and calloused. A grip with authority. "Just moved here from the city." A deep voice that sent chills up my back. "Started work at the auto body shop down the street." He squeezed my fingers. "Guess I've found the best place in town for lunch."

He left without asking for my number, but the next day at noon, he showed up again with a big smile for me. While I loitered by the coffee pot as Chuck fixed three specials for table two, Nick asked if I got off for dinner. I pretended I had to think about it, but gave him my answer pretty quick. He was the best thing to come along that I could remember.

He took me to the roadhouse on the highway. The waitress took a long look at Nick and didn't even ask me for ID. We had a few drinks before the steaks came and afterwards, we started making out in the booth. We had trouble keeping our hands off each other, so no surprise we ended up in his apartment that turned out to be in a dreary building on the edge of town.

Two skinny shadows in hoodies hanging around the parking lot made me jittery as we walked up the dark stairs and down a long hall. I clung to Nick's arm. Inside his place, I found myself in an almost-empty room, which didn't reduce the hot and cold shivers in my chest; they should have been a warning about what I was doing. Deciding they were a sign of passion, I ignored them. After we got going again, I forgot the lack of furnishings and pretty much everything else. It had been so long since anyone had touched me, I practically burst into flames.

He found places in me I didn't know I had. The evening unfolded like a night one might read about in novels. I loved how he tangled his fingers in my hair, the way his eyes softened when we kissed, how he lingered over my aching breasts. Under his hands, my body dissolved into molten flesh.

I imagined myself a courtesan of ancient times, eyes outlined in kohl, ostrich feathers in my ebony hair. Golden silk hung from my shoulders as my lover's head floated down my belly, hands gripping my hips so hard my knees buckled. We cascaded onto the floor, moaning because we were still separate. I loved his hardness, teasing and opening me, filling me until I screamed to heaven for release. He took me higher than I had ever been. I forgot modesty, shame, everything my mother taught me. Afterward, we pressed ourselves against each other as if we were two people meant to be born as one.

He said he loved me and I believed him.

I was young.
