Their hunt for the terrorist Renaud seems to be nearing an end, until a fire allows him to slip through their fingers—and puts Jamie’s life in danger. When Jamie is nearly killed, Aidan learns how many forms loss can take.

Aidan says I love you just moments before learning that Jamie’s been keeping a devastating secret about Aidan’s late husband. How quickly trust and love can go up in flames. When Aidan requests a solo undercover assignment, Jamie hopes Aidan will find a way to forgive him.

But the explosions are far from over. Aidan’s cover lands him in the heart of the terrorist’s conspiracy, and Jamie will have to put his life, his career and his freedom on the line to save the man who has become his entire world. Partners, always is a promise he intends to keep.

Three Player Game

(Bluewater Bay)
by

Jaime Samms

Vince’s life has improved immeasurably since he moved to Bluewater Bay two years ago. He’s gone from working for a man he hated, to helping found a company he believes in. And he and his boyfriend, Pete, have built a delicate balance of power between them that keeps them both grounded and thriving.

Almost, anyway.

Pete’s job on the set of Wolf’s Landing is demanding. He needs lots of downtime off set, and that’s where Vince’s firm but gentle control isn’t always enough. And for Vince, Pete’s constant high-energy needs are turning out to be more than he can handle alone.

It’s no surprise to either of them, then, that sparks fly when Vince’s coworker Lee enters the picture. Outwardly, Lee is tough and confident, but when a bad back confines him to Pete and Vince’s spare room, the cracks start to show and his desire for connection begins to peek through.

Pete and Vince both like what they see under Lee’s prickly outside, but now the three men must learn that love isn’t about beating the game—it’s about balance, trust, and letting each other in.

(Love in Laguna 05)

Tara Lain

The unlikeliest of lovers. The sweetest of loves.

Merle Justice wants to reach for the stars, but it’s tough to get respect when playing a teenybopper vampire on TV. Then he meets a famous director anxious to give him all he thinks he wants—and maybe a bit more. Everything’s looking up until a life-threatening encounter with some homophobes on Main Beach puts Merle face-to-face with a Sasquatch-sized hero in a pink puffer coat.

Tom Henry defies description. As unsophisticated and simple as an angel, he walks through life content with who he is and asking for very little except to care for his sister, Lily, and the dogs he loves. Then he meets Merle, the embodiment of dreams he barely knows he has. Merle knows the people who hold his future in their hands might love Tom—but they’ll never understand Merle and Tom together. Tom knows it too. With lives this far apart, who’s really the fool of Main Beach?

Ebb and Flow

(Love’s Charter 02)
by

Andrew Grey

To achieve happiness, they’ll have to find the courage to be their own men.

As first mate on a charter fishing boat, Billy Ray meets a lot of people, but not one of them has made him as uncomfortable as Skippy—because he’s drawn to Skippy as surely as the moon pulls the tides, and he’s almost as powerless to resist. Billy Ray has spent his life denying who he is to avoid the wrath of his religious father, and he can’t allow anyone to see through his carefully built façade.

Skippy is only in town on business and will have to return to Boston once he’s through. But he doesn’t count on Billy Ray capturing his attention and touching his heart. After all, his father has certain expectations, and one of them is not him staying in Florida.

Billy Ray doesn’t realize just how much he and Skippy have in common, though. They’re both living to please their fathers instead of following their own dreams—a fact that becomes painfully obvious when they get to know each other and realize how much joy they’ve denied themselves. While they can’t change the past, they can begin a future together and make up for lost time—as long as they’re willing to face the consequences of charting their own course.

(The Second Legacy)
by

R.J. Scott

Trapped in darkness, can an escort find a man to help him into the light?

Gabriel Reyes never gave in. He fought and was hurt, was abused but escaped with his life. He made his way in the world using the one thing he was good at: sex. He earned a place with a man who controls everything but Gabriel is safe; he’s made it.

Cameron Stafford hires Gabriel for a night, needing nothing more than a pretend boyfriend to get his dysfunctional family off his back. With the money he has in the bank and his own hotel, why won’t they just leave him alone? It doesn’t matter that a degenerative disease has stolen his vision, or that his last boyfriend was a bastard who tried to steal from him; for now he has purpose.

When Gabriel and Cam fall for each other, can they find real happiness and, maybe, a forever that will save them both?

A new story set in the world of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes and the Double D Ranch, Texas.

Blurb: Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? 

Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera. 

Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch. 

Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to a real-life chance of romance?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Ken sits back and watches the camera wishing for some action.  Something to help him get through each day at work.  Well he gets more then he bargains for, when a sexy waiter keeps putting on a show for him.  

This is a cute little story that makes for a nice hot read.  However for me, it is just a very short story that gives just a taste of what could be.  In a way it is a slow telling story, but for this story it could also be said to be fast paced.  I am afraid that for me, it just seemed to be too slow. The name of the book is actually right on and makes it funny as hell.  I enjoyed reading it, but wished it was a longer book with a bit more to it.  Other than my issues it is well told, pretty detailed and is a pretty good story. 

 I would recommend it to those who love a long time love story that neither party knew they had.  I will let you figure that one out on your own.

Review: Cameron is nearly blind and while he can manage his life just fine, his family have a different opinion and are forever plaguing him with their thoughtless comments and trying to manage his life. When he decides he needs a date to his half-brother and half-sister’s engagement party he decides to hire an escort to help him out.

Gabriel accepts the life he has as the best that he can get and thinks that being controlled and beaten is all he can get. With his past still haunting him he can’t accept the help that he’s offered from Legacy Ranch turning his back on it and staying with an abusive, controlling asshole. When he’s approached by a man in a life with an escort offer he begrudgingly accepts and it leads him to finding acceptance and hope for the future.

This story is an amazing addition to the Legacy series. We are introduced to Gabriel who was one of the poor men who were systematically abused at Bar Five Ranch; Gabriel is now living as an escort under the thumb of the thoroughly controlling and nasty Stefan. His situation is much more dire than he leads himself to believe, but you can understand why he’s terrified of rocking the boat.

Cameron is such a lovely character; he’s losing his sight but is determined to live his life his way without interference from his family. When he resorts to hiring Gabriel he discovers a young man who he feels a connection to and he’s determined not to let Gabriel push him away.

Both Gabriel and Cam are excellent characters, we watch as they get to know each other and both become more to each other as their strange relationship progresses. Gabriel opens Cam’s eyes to something going on within his own family and Cam supports Gabriel as Gabriel finally accepts the help he desperately needs.

I really enjoyed this story, we are given a treat as we follow Gabriel and Cam’s story because not only do we get their building love but we also see into some troubles in Cam’s life which adds to the overall story. R.J. Scott has yet again created a wonderful love story that emerges from tragic circumstances. There are some harrowing moments for Gabriel that can cause triggers to readers affected by sexual and physical abuse but those moments are important to the story.

I recommend this to those who love damaged characters who emerge from the ashes to rebuild their lives, who love men who are determined to hold onto love, who love a dash of trouble that is firmly smoothed over, and who love having their hearts filled with love as they read the last pages.
