Une Nuit avec le Capitaine by Nora Phoenix
French edition of Captain Silver Fox
Ce moment où votre spectaculaire coup d’un soir s’avère être votre nouveau patron plus âgé et sexy…

Brantley Phipps ne veut pas de petit ami. Son métier rend les relations amoureuses impossibles. Il veut simplement s’amuser une nuit avant de passer dix semaines en mer en tant qu’assistant de l’hôtel manager d’un navire de croisière.

Il touche le gros lot avec un gars plus âgé sexy qui coche toutes ses cases et veut la même chose que lui. Leur alchimie est explosive ! Quelle nuit inoubliable ! Cela devrait l’aider à tenir un moment…

Jusqu’à ce qu’il découvre que son coup d’un soir est le légendaire capitaine Silver Fox, son nouveau patron. Oups !

Cependant, cela ne devrait pas poser de problèmes, car Brantley ne se tape pas ses collègues et Fox est connu pour ne jamais sortir avec ses subalternes. Cela devrait être simple, mais c’était sans compter l’attirance qui met le feu à leur sang chaque fois qu’ils sont dans la même pièce. Ou sur le même bateau. Comment vont-ils s’en débarrasser ?

Ces trois mois vont être très longs…

Preston Graves is a household name among the TV-watching masses. Handsome, accessible, relatable. But when his not-so-vanilla personal life goes public, he high-tails it back to his home state of Michigan for the holidays—to the man he once loved.

Blake Aldrich tried love, twice. When it didn’t work, he retreated to focus on his pottery. He finds success but he’s never forgotten what he lost. His lover. His best friend. Now Preston is back, invoking a childhood pact and dragging a Hollywood-sized mess into Blake’s tidy life.

The lure of Preston in Blake’s woodland retreat tempts him and the lacy surprises under his clothes are a present he can’t resist unwrapping. The heat between them ignites and their old feelings come rushing back, but Tinseltown is still calling Preston’s name.

Blake will have to choose whether to follow the man he’s always loved, or be left out in the cold.

12 Days of Gay by Ana Byrde
He's arrogant, aloof, and his smirk makes me want to punch him. I shouldn't let him get to me, but he's always known how to push my buttons.

12 days of gay. That's the name of the video contest my boss wants to host this Christmas. Three couples, four short videos, each inspired by a line of the famous song. I signed up to be part of one of the couples competing, only then my friend dropped out.

Now my boss wants me to form a couple with her nephew—who happens to be the hottest man alive. Too bad he's also a jerk.

Thing is, he might be my best shot at winning this contest and getting myself he money I need to start college. I can suffer through a few filming sessions with him for that, can't I? Put him in some really ridiculous outfits so I can forget how firm his abs are.

It almost works too. Almost. Until I have to touch him. Kiss him.

Lord help me.

I don't know how I'm going to get through this holiday season with my sanity intact.
Domestic Service by Ella Fenn
An inexperienced executive. A penniless grad student. An unconventional offer.

Colin Caldwell clawed his way out of a rough childhood to put himself through college, and now grad school. Broke, stressed-out, and struggling to stay afloat after he loses his regular ridesharing gig, he’s willing to do anything that pays the bills.

Simon Vessey is the total package—a handsome, wealthy, and successful executive who, at thirty-seven, seems to have it all. But behind closed doors, Simon is shy, lonely, and so inexperienced as a dominant that he might as well be a virgin. Limited by his fears, but craving companionship beyond an occasional escort, what he really wants is someone he can come home to, even if he’s paying for the privilege.

When a mutual acquaintance suggests that Colin could be the perfect fit for Simon’s live-in submissive dreams, it seems like the perfect solution for them both. But when their connection begins to run deeper than their business contract, and old demons rear their heads, will they find a way to persevere?

The first book in the Living Situations series, Domestic Service is a gay romance featuring an age gap, light BDSM, and two broken people fixing each other in service of their happy ending. If you like steamy situations, compelling characters, and forced proximity, then you’ll love Ella Fenn’s debut novel.

The Holiday List by Lane Hayes
The Mars maestro, the single dad, and a wish list…

Chet-

Boy, am I lucky! Finding a living situation with a houseful of passionate scientists just before the holidays is ideal in every possible way. As the newest member of the Script Club, I feel it’s important to step up and tackle the to-do list my friends would prefer to avoid. Item one, address the tutoring request from the neighborhood-hottie-slash-single-dad on the next block. I’ve got this!

Or do I?

Handsome, older, sporty gentlemen intimidate me. And Mr. McSwoony doesn’t like the holidays. This may be a daunting task.

Sam-

What do you do when a new neighbor shows up on your doorstep with cookies and a wacky plan to spread holiday cheer? I don’t need cheer, but I could use help with some of the experiments my son wants to try. I know football, not science. Hopefully, I can talk Chet into a mutually beneficial trade. The only snag is that I’m seriously attracted to my local Mars expert. He’s unintentionally charming…in the very best way.

Don’t quote me, but maybe this holiday elf with thick glasses and a mile-long list might be exactly what I need.

Filthy Bromance by R. Cayden
It’s totally normal for two straight guys to do this when they’re alone, right?

That’s what I keep telling myself after I meet Reggie.
I’m a pro tennis player, and I usually spend my life on the court. But an embarrassing injury in the middle of the US Open sidelined my career, landing me in the hands of my new athletic trainer.
Reggie is a big old jock with an easy smile, and my grumpy butt has never met anyone like him.

We start hanging—at the gym and at his place, on the tennis court and out at the bar.
I haven’t had a real friend in years, and Reggie’s big heart warms me deep inside.
He finds something I’ve tried to keep buried, and when we end up sweaty in a hotel bed one night, my world turns upside down.

Then comes the cabin weekend, and all the long massages at the gym…
Reggie gets his big hands all over me, and I can’t stop thinking about him.

It’s chill, though, because we’re a couple of straight guys, and this is just a bromance.
A sweaty, grunty, sticky bromance.
It can’t be more than that, not with my tennis career waiting—
and no matter what my heart insists.

All I Want by Stella Starling
“All I want for Christmas is someone to love.”


Shy retail clerk Elliott Gaffney’s Christmas wish isn’t something Santa can grant him, but that doesn’t stop it from being his favorite time of year. Especially since he gets to work at Chicago’s prestigious Ashby’s department store in “the North Pole,” doing his part to make the magic of Christmas come alive for others.

All Bennett “Ash” Ashby wants for Christmas is to forget about it. Unfortunately, his father is forcing him to pay penance for the media frenzy caused by his latest public sex scandal. The Ashby heir, working as a lowly department store Santa? Only the fact that no one will know it’s really him can save Ash the embarrassment of being stuck in a fat suit instead of partying with his friends.

But when Elliott catches Ash’s eye, Christmas starts to look a whole lot brighter. And even though Elliott would never have the guts to say yes if he knew who Ash really was, falling for “Ben,” the new Santa, is another story all together…

But choices must be made, and the truth has consequences. And hearts and reputations are on the line and need to be protected.
Edge of Nowhere by Felicia Davin
Kit Jackson has two talents in life. He can navigate the void known as the Nowhere to teleport himself across long distances and he can keep his mouth shut. These talents have earned him a reputation as a discreet, reliable Nowhere runner—he’ll smuggle anything for the right price—and that’s how Kit likes it. Morals don’t earn money, and neither do friends. When the private research firm Quint Services makes Kit an astounding offer for a mystery delivery, he says yes.

When something monstrous attacks them in the Nowhere and throws them into an unknown wilderness, Kit and this stranger, a man named Emil, have to rely on each other. Kit just wants to make his delivery and get paid, but he finds himself increasingly entangled in Quint Services’ dangerous research—and his own attraction to Emil.

Emil Singh left his career in the Orbit Guard to work at Quint Services Facility 17, a base hidden in an asteroid, to prepare a team to cross the Nowhere into other worlds. It’s the chance of a lifetime and he can’t wait to explore the universe. But then Emil witnesses a terrible accident in a Facility 17 lab and gets sent to Earth for questioning. Something isn’t right, but before Emil can investigate, he and the Nowhere runner hired to transport him are knocked off course. Is the monster that attacks them a creation of Quint Services? What else is the corporation hiding? He has to get back to Facility 17 to protect his team and he needs Kit’s help. Can he trust the cynical young smuggler?
To Touch the Light by E.M. Lindsey
“I see them…In you, I see them.”

Estranged from his family and locked in a demanding job which monopolizes all of his time, Head Chef, Mario Garcia, doesn’t exactly have holiday spirit. He spends all season creating magic for others, and for himself, he’s resigned to another lonely winter. There’s a reason he’s known as the Devil in Fairfield Resort’s high-end kitchen, and he has no plans to change that. What most people don’t realize, however, is that Chef Garcia has a soft spot for one man—a half-blind, Russian dishwasher who is the first person in years to make Mario feel.

Viktor Popov's life is full of secrets and lies. He showed up in Fairfield with a handful of suspicious papers, no past, and secured a job in the bowels of a resort kitchen. He spends his waking hours washing dishes and trying his best to manage his failing eyesight without anyone taking notice. Once upon a time, he was a man of wealth and reputation, and now he’s living day-to-day, hoping no one will ever take notice.

It's been forever since Vitya believed in anything, and these long years of loneliness only proved to him that miracles didn’t exist. At least, until the night when warm hands pulled him out of the cold, and a soft voice whispered in his ear that he mattered.

Life isn’t easy, and both men have never expected any different. But maybe, by the soft light of the menorah, both men will finally be able to see that for each other, they’re exactly what they need.
Cursed by by X. Aratare
Sensitive, aspiring photographer Nick Fairfax wants nothing to do with his family's corporate business, or their vicious, cold-blooded lifestyle. Intending to give up his inheritance and pursue his art, he arrives at his father's office, only to find that Fairfax Industries has fallen to a scarred man in a hooded cloak.

The man is the reclusive billionaire Lord Bane Dunsaney, and he is bent on destroying the Fairfaxes. But when he sees Nick, everything changes. Bane offers the Fairfaxes the chance to regain their fortune if Nick will reside at Moon Shadow, his secluded mansion, and do whatever the billionaire wants for a whole year. Nick has no real choice other than to agree to Bane’s terms.

At Moon Shadow, Bane lords his power over Nick, going even so far as to take Nick’s phone, computer and beloved camera away. The billionaire claims such measures are to protect his privacy, but Nick is convinced they are so Bane can control him.

Each is determined to see the worst in each other. But as time passes, Nick glimpses a Bane that is much more than the cold-hearted figure that he met in his father's office. He discovers that Bane is a man betrayed by love and no longer believes in it.

But what Nick comes to know about Bane is nothing compared to the man’s true secret. Bane is cursed. He is a tiger-shifter who has no control over his beast. And that beast wants Nick.

Learn the Rules by Leighton Greene
