Heaven has a master plan.

And it’s not what you think.

When it comes to angels, Teriel’s the equivalent of a bookkeeper. He catalogues data–and that data details every petty crime, cruelty, and hatred humanity has been guilty of since the dawn of time. Every little white lie, every selfish thought, every dark deed, every murder; they’re all another weight tipping the scale toward humanity’s impending destruction and Heaven’s final mission to raze Earth to the ground and start over fresh.

Until he meets September.

Kind, sweet, and plagued by prophetic dreams, September should be nothing more than the owner of the cafe where Teriel logs his observations. But when September asks Teriel out on a date, he plunges the angel into a singular, terrifying, and utterly beautiful experience:
Humanity.

With every moment Teriel spends with September, he discovers the beauty of humanity in all its flaws.

And the beauty of September, a man who inspires Teriel not to cataclysmic destruction…but to the desperate need to love, protect, and shelter September from the massacre to come.

Saving September could doom Teriel as one of the fallen.

But can he bear to kill the man he loves, in a world of visitors and gods?

Yet where Alexander’s heart is made of ice…it’s the fire in Johann’s that could be the key to bringing Kai home. 

Johann never wanted to let Kai go on this mission. And now a fatal misstep could mean losing the only man he’s ever loved. Only Johann can break the spell entangling Kai’s heart in thorns of darkest glass. 

Before the dark prince’s corruption claims him completely, and Kai is lost forever.

What’s worse than having a crush on your boss?

Having a crush on your boss when you’re best friends with the boss’s daughter.

When Oscar Guerrero signs on to mayoral’s candidate Evan De Marco’s campaign, he knows almost nothing about him. Only that he’s gorgeous, single, kind yet frustratingly aloof…and one of the few politicians in the city to run on an openly gay platform. As an intern, all Oscar should be concerned with is politics, optics, and navigating a Luddite like Evan through the pitfalls of social media.

Yet it’s impossible to get Evan off his mind. The older man’s hot-and-cold behavior leaves Oscar aching for more, yet one reckless, drunken kiss makes him fear he’s ruined not only his job, but the rapport and trust he’d built with both Evan and his daughter. But it’s not Oscar holding Evan back–not his youth, not his impulsiveness, not even the boundaries of professionalism.

It’s the long-held memory of his dead husband, and a loyalty that has kept him trapped in the past for so many years.

It’s that loyalty that Oscar admires so much–yet that same sense of honor and faithfulness may keep them both from moving forward. Oscar wants to help Evan start again…but does Oscar have what it takes to win the stubborn politician over?

So you’ve just been caught committing a crime by one of your most attractive employees, and if he opens his mouth you’ll lose everything you’ve worked to build.

You could bribe him. You could threaten him. You could fire him, and open yourself up to a lawsuit if you even survive the criminal trial.

One marriage of convenience. A hefty payoff that would solve so many problems for Bryn and his family. Only Bryn isn’t sure he can keep it strictly business when his boss is bisexual, gorgeous, always there—and completely out of his league.

Despite how attracted he is to him, Dallas finds himself having to turn him away from the inn because he doesn’t have a credit card to check in. The gorgeous stranger offers $10,000 in cash to stay for the week and Dallas, who should know better, takes the money and checks him in under a fake name. 

He spends the next few days wondering who his guest is, whether he’s a criminal, until Dallas finds himself rescuing his sketchy guest from a drunken club situation. Soon, he’s learning his guest’s secrets—and they’re much bigger than he expected.

Maxx Neon

To say that things are going well for Max would be an understatement. He is living his dream, touring around the country with his band, playing music to hordes of adoring fans. But his dream turns out to be more difficult and exhausting than he expected. In his daydreams, Max never expected to have to wear eight inch heels for six hours as he performed or how much the exhaustion would add to his relatively well managed back pain. Regardless of the difficulty, Max is grateful. 
With everything else going on in his life, he rarely has time to think about how lonely it is to be on the road with a band of amazing musicians whose names he barely knows. He doesn’t think that’s going to change—in truth, he doesn’t care if it doesn’t, he has enough to worry about. After a grueling performance, however, he meets Eli backstage during a meet and greet. 

Drawn to him in a way that he can’t explain, Max ends up inviting him back to his hotel. The two of them have a night together that neither one of them is bound to forget any time soon. For the first time in a long time, though, Max is starting to realize that he might want more than his current life provides. 

Maybe not all of his dreams have come true yet.
