Blurb:  Out of the Cage: When an enforcer goes on a task for the council, he discovers a duty that will impact the rest of his life.

Adisa Derringer has worked for the Shifter Council for over one hundred years. After refusing a councilman’s orders, he narrowly avoids losing his enforcer position. Accompanying another councilman as his security is a second chance. Unfortunately, Adisa doesn’t agree with why the shifter leader is visiting the pack–to assess the wolf shifter alpha’s activities and perhaps remove him as leader of his pack. Adisa approves of the wolf shifter’s actions–discreetly fighting the scientists experimenting on their kind. The Shifter Council doesn’t see it that way. When Adisa is shown one of the rescued shifters–a massive wolf seemingly driven to the brink of madness by the experiments done on him–he realizes the feral beast is his mate. If Adisa must again go against a councilman’s orders, it may not be only his job he’ll lose. Can Adisa nurture the tiny spark of humanity he spots in the wolf’s eyes, or will he lose out on both their futures…and maybe their lives?

For sixteen years, Quinn couldn’t stop remembering. He fell into addiction, found music, lost himself, and became a country music superstar. He never forgot.

Blurb:  Wade Maguire and Russ Paulson are in love. After a year of passion and happiness, they’re buying a home and moving in together. Everything is rosy for them—until a jealous and insane ex from Wade’s past puts all of that to the test.

After being kidnapped and tortured by his deranged former lover, Wade loses his ability to engage with his own sexuality or with Russ. With the help of a psychologist, EMDR therapy, and a sex plan, they work together to overcome the damage inflicted. In the process, they discover wells of love they’ve never known before.

As passion is reborn and their sex life reignited, Wade realizes a need to re-experience certain events in Russ’s loving arms. For Wade, the difference between pain and pleasure is love, and the difference between rape and rough sex is consent.

Dark, and yet ultimately hopeful, this book contains many emotional and graphic sex scenes, as well as some scenes of torture. This book deals with rape and rape recovery. Proceed with care.

Blurb:  Stepping out of the closet as a gay man may be a walk in the park, compared to coming out as a werewolf.

Why is a hot but odd mathematician stalking him? And how can half the things Alex Corwin says possibly be true, no matter how honest he seems?

Alex has a frightening dilemma. Dylan is attractive, appealing, out and proud. He’s also completely unaware that he’s a werewolf. It shouldn’t be Alex’s job to tell him, and warn him that gay wolves usually end up dead. But someone has to, before he finds out in blood and violence.

Chicago’s not Alex’s home town, but somehow he needs to protect Dylan from the local packs, protect the Packs from being outed by Dylan, and keep his cool around the first man to touch his own deeply-closeted heart.
