Henley's Liebe by Nora Phoenix
German edition of Press
Henley ist tabu für Levar. Also warum kann er sich nicht fernhalten?

Fünf Jahre zuvor überlebte Levar einen Terroranschlag. Der Bombenanschlag hat seine Narben hinterlassen, aber er hat sein Leben wieder in den Griff bekommen. Er liebt es, für den Vizepräsidenten – der offen bisexuell ist – als sein Pressesekretär zu arbeiten.

Levar kann sich eine lästige Anziehungskraft, die sich als frustrierend hartnäckig erweist, nicht leisten. Schlimmer noch, diese hochentzündlichen Funken sind mit der allerletzten Person, in die er sich verlieben sollte: Henley Platt, ein bekannter Reporter für das Weiße Haus.

Henley mag nicht Levars Feind sein, aber er ist definitiv nicht sein Freund. Das kann er nicht sein, nicht, wenn sie durch ihre Jobs auf entgegengesetzter Seite stehen. Es ist unmöglich, auch wenn Henley seine Wertschätzung für die sexy Dessous zeigt, die Levar zu tragen liebt.

Als die Terroristen mit einem verheerenden Anschlag auf das Weiße Haus erneut zuschlagen, suchen Levar und Henley Kraft und Unterstützung beieinander. Die Funken werden zu einem tosenden Feuer, das sich nicht löschen lässt, aber was passiert, wenn sie auffliegen?
Henleys Liebe ist das erste Buch der Liebe im Weißen Haus-Serie, einer romantischen, spannenden Gay Romance -Serie, die im Weißen Haus spielt. Jedes Buch hat eine neue Liebesgeschichte mit einem Happy End, aber die spannungsgeladene Handlung endet mit einem Cliffhanger und wird im Rest der Serie fortgesetzt, also muss die Serie in der Reihenfolge gelesen werden. Trigger-Warnung wegen der Beschreibung eines Terroranschlags.
S'more to Love by Lila Wilde and Andi James
Kinky glamping? No thanks. Hudson would rather sleep on the ground, and Rory prefers designer sheets. Can they still find a way to connect under the stars?

A little too loud, a little too opinionated, and a little too chubby, Rory is used to being overlooked. In his experience, Doms prefer their men small, quiet, and agreeable — everything Rory is not. So when his cute, twinky best friend drags him on a fancy camping trip for kinky singles, Rory doesn’t expect to be noticed by anyone, let alone the most handsome man he’s ever laid eyes on.

After several lackluster attempts at Daddying, nature-loving Hudson is excited to find a like-minded boy and give it another try during a camping getaway… until he realizes his rustic tent is actually a three-room cabin with a Sleep Number bed and satellite TV. Hudson is ready to cut his losses and head back to Denver when the cute bear cub next door catches his eye and his nurturing instinct.

Will charming, steady Hudson convince stubborn Rory he adores him just the way he is and become the Daddy Rory thought he’d never find? Or will they continue hiking separate paths?

Falling in love was not part of the deal Ren made with me. When I'm back on my feet, will Daddy let me go or call me his own?

Third, a certain Enforcer with an enticing scent and scarred face is not to be stared at, drooled over, and/or daydreamed about.

And fourth, human hunters are never, ever mate material—no matter what their smiles or Southern drawls do to him.

But what if his own rules are preventing Jamie from finding something unique and magical and hotter than he could ever imagine? Because being caught between a grumpy cougar and a dangerous hunter was the last place Jamie thought he should be… but it might just be exactly where he needs to be to find both of his fated mates.

Logan Shaw is a divorced dominant with a bag full of toys and no one to play with. He loves the construction company he built from the ground up, but he’s been longing for a submissive to make his life complete.

Tony Christensen hates running the family towing business but his father's illness left him in charge of the company with no time to follow his dreams or find a Dom to love and praise him.

On the surface, chef Jude Maddox leads a charmed life, but his restaurant renovation is a mess and he can't find another switch to make his kinky dreams come true. Jude is smitten with the perfect sub he met through a kinky hook up app, but he knows he can't be the full time Dom Tony needs. When he meets a sexy older dominant on that same app, he never dreams it's his father's best friend—or what it will mean for the three of them.

As a switch, Jude can finally indulge in both sides of himself. Logan has two subs to guide, tease, and torment. And Tony? He's about to get all the domination and praise he yearns for. But when their explosive chemistry turns to love, will what they've built together be strong enough to withstand the forces that would tear them apart?

Pouring his all into his business, Elijah is perfectly content running his bar. With its prime location and its infamous drag shows, Bar QK is the place to be.

While kindness runs through his veins, Seb doesn’t believe in fairy tales. He has a past he’d rather forget and has no real expectations for his future. He believes it’s safer to not make assumptions about anything or anyone; that way, he’ll remain safe.

It takes his elusive, aloof boss, whose mixed messages are more confusing than IKEA furniture instructions, to show Seb that opening his heart can be worth the risk.

When Elijah and Seb find themselves working on a common goal, the high stakes may be just the nudge they need.

When the border collie morphs into a man—a very naked man—he has to be dreaming. Only when he wakes to find himself cold and alone, locked inside a bare stone room does he wonder if it was the start of a nightmare.

As the youngest alpha the Penhul pack has ever had, Drake knows he has a lot to prove. Increasing their dwindling numbers is hard enough but convincing his pack they can do so by working alongside humans is like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. He was taught, as all familiars are, that humans can’t be trusted, especially not with their secret. It’s no surprise, then, that he has no idea what to do when a member of his own pack brings a human prisoner to their den. But he’s definitely not prepared for the reaction the human elicits from him.

Can Drake put aside their differences, and Addison come to accept their similarities, to save the Penhul pack from danger? A threat that may end up costing Drake not only his life but that of his fated mate?

Moon Flower by Christina Lee
When Galen flees his home and travels to Lunar’s Reach, he does what he needs to survive. But trading his body for food in his belly is always a risky undertaking. After he’s found injured in an alleyway, his new friends take him to Moon Flower apothecary, where the madam in charge offers him the proposition of a lifetime.

Little does he know that the Moon Flower flourishes at night—in more ways than one. Gentlemen gather in secret, yearning for an evening with Galen and the others, where they offer pleasure willingly while exploring their desires.

But Galen’s eye is continually drawn to the most unassuming man in the room—Azriel, the resident healer, who has the most unusual aura Galen has ever seen. There’s an understated melancholy in him that Galen longs to soothe, and the more time they spend together, the more he craves to know Azriel’s touch.

But security is only a threadbare veneer for those like him, and soon danger is upon their doorstep. Galen has only ever needed to protect himself, but now he belongs to an ensemble of unlikely characters who’ve become the family he never had. So he’ll put himself on the line, along with his heart, if it means keeping them safe—especially Azriel, the man who quiets his restless soul.

Please note: Moon Flower is set in an imaginary world reminiscent of our nineteenth century, with some fantastical elements such as potions and fated mates, but without explicit rules. Some liberties were taken for the sake of fiction—and, of course, romance.
