School is back in session.
When undergrad student James Sheridan set out to seduce his way into a better grade, he had no idea what he was signing on for. Professor Evander Carson wasn’t about to trade a good grade for sexual favors, but he was definitely willing to tutor his wayward pupil in far more than history.
By the end of their tumultuous relationship, James not only excelled academically, his sexual horizons had expanded to include pleasures—and agonies—the likes of which he’d never dreamed. But enough was more than enough, and James fled from his...
Home is where the heart is.
The December holidays mean many things: food, presents, traditions, stress, peace, renewal. But most of all, they mean families—good and bad, biological and chosen—and finding our way home, whatever the definition and wherever it might be. The four holiday-set romances in Home for the Holidays all explore characters leaving home, finding home, returning home, and discovering what home means to them.
And to help people discover home in the real world, 20% of all proceeds from this...

Country mouse meets city cat.
Owen may be a bit of a country mouse, but he loves his vacation in London, even more so when he meets the sexy and arrogant Malcolm Kavanagh. But eighty-hour weeks at a trading desk don’t leave Malcolm much time for meaningful relationships. In his world, everything’s a competition—even sex.
Their vacation romance turns serious, but that’s just the first chapter in their story. Anyone who’s ever been in love knows that happy endings take a lot more work than declaring your feelings.
Malcolm has never been in love, or...
Josh Caplan is your average late-night convenience store clerk, but the Quik-Mart where he works is nothing like normal with that hell vortex in the parking lot.

Will Josh survive this retail nightmare? It's a Big Gulp of a chance, but between the hazard pay and the hottie with a sweet tooth for Josh's candy, it's a...

Some sins are worth the price.
Sexy male succubus Rael has an insatiable appetite for men that gets him into all kinds of trouble. And he’s just found his favorite flavor: hunky blond detective Lars Thornsson. When those cool Nordic looks combine with Rael’s smoldering dark charms, all Hell could break loose.
Lars’s job at the Paranormal Enforcement Agency means he’s supposed to be policing demons, not falling in lust—or love—with them. But there’s something about this feisty little sex demon that hits all his buttons.
Ancient Rome, a hotbed of decadence and political intrigue, profoundly influenced our modern world and has maintained an enduring hold on our imaginations. Though the Empire has fallen, its stories remain.
In this collection, we've gathered together two novels and two novellas that explore the breadth of the Roman Empire. From slave gladiators to senators, Roman sexuality to Roman politics, these stories reveal the lives and trials of those fighting for the Empire in one way or another—on the sands or in the villas, or even on the senate floor.
Love lights even the darkest soul.
A killer's moral compass rarely points true, and among made men, being gay is a capital crime. But Silvio Spadaro, deadly prodigy and heir to a Family fortune, is determined to find his own way—at the feet of the man he loves or by the barrel of a gun—no matter the dangers or costs.
Stefano Marino lives a comfortable—some might even say enviable—life. As a mob boss at the top of the food chain, he has it all: money, respect, a beautiful wife he loves as much now as the day they wed. But he also has a...
Hollywood A-lister Devon Turner and Brodway darling Nicky Avery are a match made in movies, but they're not your typical RomCom couple. For one, it's boy meets boy. For another, it's sadist meets masochist.
But Devon and Nicky are the perfect fit, heart to heart and kink to kink. And though they're more likely to walk hand in hand into the dungeon than the sunset, their Ever After is as happy as can be.
Sex for hire is among our naughtiest fantasies, be it with a $10 street rat or a $1,000-an-hour elite escort. As long as there’s been sex, there’s been sex for sale, and this collection explores the depth and breadth of the characters and the worlds in which you can find it.
In Where You Hurt the Most, a high-class escort and scarred young man find unexpected familiar ground. They soon learn that while it’s true that love can’t heal all wounds, it is the surest balm for where...
