Acing The Game

 

Acing the Game
Carey PW
Publication date: February 10th 2023
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Romance

Is food really the way into a person’s heart?

Shep Lee thought he had it all. A successful restaurant, a loving husband who understood his asexuality, and most of all, the ability to be himself, a popular chef in the small town of Cloverleaf, Montana. That is, until his husband, Elmer Eshler, began pushing Shep more on sex.

Elmer doesn’t understand why he can’t turn his partner on—aren’t they perfect for each other? And Shep loves him, right? Shep, meanwhile, while confident with his body, is and forever will be sex indifferent. Why has Elmer suddenly changed his tune? But he doesn’t want to lose the man he loves so much. What can they do?

Shep convinces Elmer to try a polyamorous relationship. Elmer gets to have Shep and the sex life he’s always wanted. Shep gets a cooking buddy and a chance to experience a relationship and even try sex with a woman as his authentic gender. At first, Shep isn’t sure, but finds himself coming around—this feels safer than opening up the relationship. All three of them will be romantically involved, so that should ease any jealousy, right?

But when Willow Saint, a free-spirited, boisterous, and saucy young woman, comes into their lives, neither are prepared for the emotional and sexual rollercoaster that follows. Enthralled by Willow’s charm and kindness, Elmer and Shep struggle to understand what this means for their own bond. Can they become one happy family? Or will this ruin everything?

Series: Broken Crown Trilogy #1
Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Tropes: Bodyguard/Royal Romance
Cover Design: Tracy Kellam
Release Date: February 21, 2023


BLURB

All my life, every decision has been made for me. What to say. How to dress. And now, who I’m to marry. When you’re second in line to the throne, it’s just how things are. I’ve always gone along with it.

Until now.

I may not have a say in who I marry, but I refuse to let someone dictate who I give my v-card to.

So I offer it to the only man I trust not to go to the paparazzi.

Creed Lawson.
Body of an Adonis.
Strength of a warrior.
And my brother’s best friend.

It was only supposed to be one night. After all, we could never be together. To the outside world, I’m supposed to be in love with someone else. And Creed’s about to be sworn in as a member of the Royal Guard.

That doesn’t stop us from fantasizing about what could be. About ignoring our duty and following our hearts.

But when the consequences of our secret tryst become much more dangerous than either of us originally bargained for, can I find the courage to fight for what I want? Or will I always remain a pawn in the palace’s deadly game?

Title: THE SHAPE OF TIME (RYMWORLD ARCANA BOOK ONE)

Author: Ryan Calejo

Pub. Date: September 12, 2023

Publisher: Amulet Books

Formats:  Hardcover, eBook

Pages: 304

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Abrams 

Thirteen-year-old Antares De La Vega is a natural born adventurer. He dreams of journeying across burning deserts, trekking through wild and uncharted jungles, sailing the furthest reaches of the seas—and yet, he’s never even stepped foot outside of South Florida . . . But that all changes when strange creatures come leaping out of lightning bolts to kidnap him. Locked away in a secret prison in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle, Antares meets 13-year-old Magdavellía, a mysterious and iron-willed girl who opens his eyes to a shocking truth: that this world is a far different place than he’s been led to believe. He learns of the existence of The Flat Earth Society, an ancient secret order, whose main function is to keep the world beyond the great Ice Wall a mystery—a land known as Rymworld. But Rymworld is in trouble. Led by a nameless evil, a sinister group of mystics seek to seize control over its only truly resource: time itself.

Antares and Magdavellía must set out beyond the edges of any map to discover the undiscoverable: a lost and forgotten island where there is rumored to exist a legendary artifact: a mythical compass that just might hold the key to foiling the mystics’ plans. Following a series of intricately concealed clues left behind by Magdavellía’s parents (clues Antares seems to be the key to unlocking), they must wield both geometry and alchemy, outsmart molemen and mermaids, and outrun fiendish outer space aliens––all while attempting to solve a riddle as old and mystifying as the sun.

Title: Lock and Key
Series: Road Trip Romance #13
Author: A.K. Evans
Genre: Small Town Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 7, 2023


BLURB

Family is everything.

Dakota Blake should know, considering she doesn’t have any. That’s why it was so important to find one to call her own. But Dakota never expected the life she was intent on building would lead to such heartache.

Jack Spears knows all about loss. Having suffered through it, he can recognize the signs of it. The walls. The icy personality. The bitterness.

When Jack meets Dakota, he’s immediately drawn to her. Maybe it’s because she’s gorgeous; maybe it’s curiosity. Or, it might be the fact that he knows she’s suffering and can’t turn his back on her.

By herself in a cabin in the Teton Mountains of Wyoming, Dakota finds herself ill-prepared for the harsh winter following her bitter divorce.

That’s when Jack steps in, gives her what she’s needed, and makes it impossible to keep her heart where she thinks it’s safest, under lock and key.

Merciless Prince — arranged marriage, enemies to lovers, dark mafia romance

He was never going to be my Prince Charming…
Arrogant. Ruthless. Breathtaking. Aiden Kilpatrick is heir to the Irish mafia, and that’s bad news for me.
I’m the D’Ignoti princess, after all. Daughter of the Italian Don who once betrayed his family.
Forced to sign a marriage contract, I’m given to him. A deb repayment.
Suddenly, I’m his to possess. His to corrupt. His to rule.
Then, his to save.
Because the only thing more dangerous than falling for the devil,
Is going through hell without him by my side.

Brutal Savior — forced marriage, enemies to lovers, dark mafia romance

The Devil Killed My father… So I Stole His Daughter.
The Bratva princess is my key to revenge. The perfect bait to draw her father out of hiding.
So, I take her without mercy.
The only problem is, the more I take, the more I want.
Soon, she’s an addiction. An obsession.
And when the time comes to give her up. I’m not sure I can.
Even if it means war.

Cruel Knight — second chance, friends to enemies to lovers, dark mafia romance

The mafia is my life, but she is my obsession.
We used to be so close. The devil and his angel.
Inseparable. Until our demons tore us apart.
In this cruel world, there are no second chances.
But when I see Tara tied up on stage at a devil’s auction, no one is going to outbid me.
I’ve found her. I’ve bought her.
And I’m not letting her go until she understands that she’s mine.
Even if that means becoming the very monster she’s running from.

Wicked Master — virgin MMC, auction, captive, dark mafia romance

Her punishment is my reward.
She’s forced up on stage like a lamb to the slaughter.
The perfect captive… for a price.
I make sure I’m the highest bidder.
It’s that sandy blonde hair; those shimmering hazel eyes.
They remind me of an old life, before I become the monster I am today.
Oh, how weak I once was.
To reclaim my past, I will conquer her.
But first, I need to destroy her demons.
Because she doesn’t belong to them anymore.
She belongs to me.

Twisted Lover — forbidden, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers, dark mafia romance

My hate for her ignited a war. Our marriage could end it.
It started when I killed her father. His life was mine to take.
Now, his daughter is too.
For the sake of peace, our advisors suggest we marry.
As if she’d ever agree to that.
Still, one look at my enemy’s daughter, and I can’t think of anything else.
So, I steal the spoiled princess.
Every spank. Every bite. Every lash of my tongue. It’s an act of war.
But the more I take, the less I can control myself.
Turns out, Sophia Xiphias isn’t the girl I thought she was.
She’s the girl I need.

Savage Don — age gap, stalking, pregnancy, forced marriage, dark mafia romance

Corrupting her is how I conquer the underworld.
Step one — Knock up my enemy’s daughter.
Step two — Invade his mafia empire from the inside out.
That’s my sinister plan. Simple and delicious. And it all starts with her.
Francesca Galli.
Putting a baby in the innocent princess won’t just give me the control I demand,
It will forever tie me to the girl of my dirty dreams.
I’ve been stalking her. Studying her. Craving her.
Now, it’s time to teach her.
Because she was only ever meant to be one thing.
My queen.
