And as that danger gets closer, Austen loses his heart to Kieron against his better judgement.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wildcat County collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Things are out of control for Austen. He loves his little sister something fierce, but the rest of the family could drop dead. His boss wants him to take over the shop but he has some conditions that Austen doesn’t like. Then a sexy cat ask him out, and he just wasn’t sure he wanted to try. His last mate left him and hooked up with a female. He just wasn’t to sure about love.

Kieron was working for the good guys while undercover with the bad guys. He has been given instructions on what to do, but a sexy feline has him tied into knots. Then he finds out that Austen’s family just might be involved. He was a hired killer for Logan, but he knows he will protect his mate. That is if he can get his mate to behave.

With this story you definitely have to read the previous books. The characters are so hard to follow and even though they are fighting for good, you just can’t tell. This story was actually a bit easier to follow but still ended up giving me a damn headache. I was glad for the ending and happy to see them together. The writing is well done and the story top rated, but like I said it is a bit confusing. It jumps from one spot to the next.

I can honestly say that I am on the line with this book. I don’t know if I like it or not. It has a darkness to it that I don’t really care for and very little humor to make up for it. I hate to admit that I might just give up on this series, since I have difficulties following it. Oh well we will see what the next one looks like.

Rocco and Dante Martone fell hard and fast for Dexter Chan, when they met him by chance. The younger man was intelligent, funny, and handsome. It wasn’t long before they realized they wanted him.

Review: Each book in the Men of Silver collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Dexter has a successful business, grooming pets. He owns his home, a plot of land by the lake, great family but the only thing he was missing was a man to come home to. The thing is, it just didn’t seem to matter with him. Then one emergency call and he finds himself the attention of twins.

Rocco and Dante have taken over their late uncle’s home and business. After find three cute kittens who had a little accident with some oil, they call in for some help. They had not expected the sexiest man to show up. And damn if they both didn’t know what to do but fall in love.

There is nothing more sexy then three men falling in love. They are the sweetest threesome you could come across. The problem was I didn’t see it. It came hard and fast, and it just felt off. The story just didn’t really catch my attention like it should have. It was cute and very sweet, the kittens were a great addition. I am not normally a fan of threesomes or even the brother part but it is still a cute story.

Other than my problems with the story it was an enjoyable read. I am afraid that this is not one of those books or series that will be read more than once. I will however keep my eye out for the next story.

I Knew Him

by

Abigail de Niverville

In his senior year of high school, Julian has one goal: be invisible. All he wants is to study hard, play basketball, and pretend he’s straight for one more year. Then, he can run away to university and finally tell the world he’s bisexual. And by “the world,” he means everyone but his mom and best friend. That’s two conversations he never wants to have.

When he’s talked into auditioning for the school’s production of Hamlet, Julian fears that veering off course will lead to assumptions he’s not ready to face. Despite that, he can’t help but feel a connection to this play. His absent father haunts him like a ghost, his ex is being difficult, and he’s overthinking everything. It’s driving him crazy.

The decision to audition leads Julian on an entirely different path. He’s cast as Hamlet, and the boy playing Horatio is unlike anyone Julian has met before. Mysterious and flirtatious, Sky draws Julian in, even though he fears his feelings at the same time. As the two grow closer, Julian begins to let out the secrets he’s never told—the ones that have paralyzed him for years. But what will he do if Sky feels the same way?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Many things are in upheaval in this addition of Out of Time. Qasim and Rhys lives are thrown for a loop when a jump turns bad. With time running out both men struggle finding out answers while seemingly growing closer to the other.

Interesting story with a lot of twists and turns around every corner. I was fascinated with how Rhys and Qasim handled different aspects of the questions as well as Qasim’s past.

I liked the story and the characters throughout as the story progressed. I felt as though I was there with the men as traversed through what was going on and the subsequent answers to some questions.

Good read.

He doesn’t have time for other distractions—no matter how sexy, independent, and compassionate that distraction might be. Besides, he’s not good enough for more than a fling—no one would ever take him home to meet their parents.

Adrien Darling has book smarts, but no street savvy—at least that’s what his family says. And after a heart-breaking betrayal by the man meant to love and protect him, Adrien believes them. But then a gorgeous guy with a defeated look in his eyes walks into Adrien’s coffee shop and makes him want to take a chance.

After years of living on the outside as two misfits looking in, both men are afraid to reach for more. But in each other’s arms, Micah and Adrien find out what it’s like to live on the inside. As their tender bond grows and blossoms, old insecurities bubble to the surface. Will their commitment crumble under the pressure? Or will the two find the strength to fight for each other.

The Holiday Home Hotel

Daren Novak and Gunny Schuler have known each other since freshmen days at the University of Washington, where they’d started a romance Daren assumed would last.

Meanwhile, Daren has built up his own life around managing a unique holiday venue, the Holiday Home Hotel, and performing for the guests in drag as “Dare.”

A decade has passed since they last saw each other, but now winter’s harsh weather brings them face to face—helped along by a minor goddess and powerful forest spirit. Too much hurt might lie between them now to fix things, but interfering supernatural beings are determined to force them to try.

Carole Cummings!

Comedy is hard!

We’ve all heard that one, and I’m not going to say it’s not true. I’m not even going to say that what I write is comedy—more like humor, and I don’t actually find it hard. It’s really kind of my default. A reader gets a better look inside my brain by reading my humor pieces than they do by reading my more serious things. That’s the part I find hard—not the writing part, but the letting people see it part.

You know that awkward kid who used to sit off to the side of the class and snort inelegantly at inappropriate times for what seemed like no reason? And everyone would kind of pause and look around to see where it came from, but all they’d see is that kid sinking down in their desk with their shoulders up around their ears and a “what?” look on their face? Yeah, that was me. I’m the giggle at a funeral, as the song goes. The “Oh, don’t cry, it’s not that—wait, are you laughing?” insensitive cretin. The “It’s not funny!” oblivious clod who just. Can’t. Help it.

And no, I don’t find funerals funny. I’m not actually insensitive, nor oblivious. It’s just… how my brain works. It ticks away without my permission, gathering input and free associating all over the place, and what it nearly always ends up spitting out is a giant pile of fluffy absurdity, like a pressure valve letting off a cloud of steam to prevent an explosion. As though somewhere back when I was wee and wide-eyed, some “wouldn’t it be funny if” switch got flipped to “on” and then just stayed that way.

That’s why letting people see the product of that mindset is difficult—because it’s as close a look as a person is going to get at the very core of me, and if they don’t like what they see…. :/

It stings. It’s a serious blow to not just the ego but the soul. Which, wow, this is creeping over into maudlin with a little bit of “OMG, love me!” on the side, but my point is that… it doesn’t matter. It can’t matter. Because yeah, maybe humor is hard in different ways for different writers, and putting it out there where people can see it is really hard for me personally, but it’s also important.

These days especially, we need fluff and nonsense. If we didn’t, rom-coms wouldn’t be a thing. Disney wouldn’t be a thing. Terry Pratchett wouldn’t be basically a god. We need lighthearted, we need amusing, we need ridiculous. We need to every now and then watch characters deal with absurd situations in absurd ways so we can let that little cloud of fluff escape through the pressure valve and give us maybe just a tiny reset so we can cope better with reality. Sometimes we need to read it, sometimes we need to write it, but either way, it’s a real need that I think is right up there with exercising and eating right. (Not that I actually do those things, but still.)

I’ve written a story that takes place at the North Pole. The North Pole, y’all. It’s got elves. It’s got witches. It’s got stirring cocoa with peppermint sticks, it’s got cherubs going on strike, it’s got office gnomes and cis Elf Privilege and annoyed penguins. And the only reason it doesn’t have even more ridiculous fluff is because the story isn’t long enough to cram it in there. It’s absurdity itself, and I won’t pretend I don’t love it like the odd little grinning weirdo it is. I love it because it makes me smile, and when I wrote it I absolutely needed that.

Some of the readers who give The Holiday Spirit a try will roll their eyes at the fluffy nonsense hijinks and put me on their “never again” list, because humor is such a subjective thing, and what works for one person won’t for another. And I won’t lie—it’ll hurt. But some will smirk as they read. Some will snort and sink down in their seats when everyone turns to look at them. Some will laugh outright. And some will sigh out a bit of pressure they didn’t even know was pushing at them and walk away smiling.

I write these things because I need to and they make me happy. I let them loose into the world because sometimes other people need them too.

Those are the ones who make the hard part worth it.

About the authors!

Kassandra Lea: I have my mom to thank for so much. First of all, she fostered a love of reading. According to her I’ve been reading since I could hold a book and I got my first library card at age 3. Growing up I used to read 100 books a year, but of course, that doesn’t happen as often since there’s writing to do and a day job.

Secondly, I have to thank her for always pushing me to keep chasing my dream of being an author. Who else am I going to bounce ideas off of, and she helps me when I get stuck. Suppose you could say she’s my biggest fan.

When I’m not writing I enjoy time with my dog, tending my garden, baking sweet treats, walking through crunchy fall leaves and blankets of cold snow, playing video games, and reading! I’ve a fondness for horses and blankets (is it possible to own too many?)

And yes, some days I still wish I was Batman.

J. Scott Coatsworth is the admin for the Queer Sci Fi site. He has been writing since elementary school, when he and won a University of Arizona writing contest in 4th grade for his first sci fi story (with illustrations!). He finished his first novel in his mid twenties, but after seeing it rejected by ten publishers, he gave up on writing for a while.

Over the ensuing years, he came back to it periodically, but it never stuck. Then one day, he was complaining to Mark, his husband, early last year about how he had been derailed yet again by the death of a family member, and Mark said to him “the only one stopping you from writing is you.”

Since then, Scott has gone back to writing in a big way, finishing more than a dozen short stories – some new, some that he had started years before – and seeing his first sale. He’s embarking on a new trilogy, and also runs a support group for writers of gay sci fi, fantasy, and supernatural fiction.

Evelyn Benvie is a wooly jumper from a family of black sheep and has always wanted to be a writer. She was raised on a steady diet of classic fantasy and science fiction but grew dissatisfied with the way people and relationships were often portrayed in mainstream books. Like, why does the princess have to get married at all? Why are aliens gender-coded? Why is every single person straight?

So she dreamed of writing sensible books with sensible characters who better reflected her own experiences as a queer woman. It’s taken a while, and fiction has gotten a lot more diverse since then (even as her own characters have gotten a whole lot less sensible), but it’s all good. “Something To Celebrate” is her first major publication; please continue to support the author in the future!

Rabi and Matthew

by

L.A. Witt

A queer retelling of Romeo & Juliet, except no one has to bury their gays.

A decades-old family rivalry is reaching a boiling point as the patriarchs vie for a seat in Congress. Democrat vs Republican, Muslim vs Christian, Hashmi vs Swain — the Midwestern town of Arbor Hills is one spark away from an explosion of violence. So when two men find themselves irresistibly drawn together at a party, only to discover they were born on opposite sides of a bloody battle line, Matthew Swain and Rabi Hashmi know they should leave well enough alone.

The pull between them is magnetic, though, and it’s too strong to ignore. Unable to resist, they meet again in secret. Generations of hatred can’t temper the passionate love growing between them, but two men falling for each other in the middle of a war zone can’t hold back the inevitable clash.

And when decades of political, religious, and personal strife finally come to a head, there will be blood.

Life Underwater

by

Matthew J. Metzger

Ashraf never thought he could fall in love. So when he falls hard and fast for marine biologist Jamie Singer, it’s a shock to the system—in more ways than one.

Even if he can wrap his head around what love is and how relationships work, Ashraf’s not sure this is viable. He’s hydrophobic. And Jamie’s entire world revolves around the sea. What’s the point of trying if so much of Jamie’s life is inaccessible to Ashraf?

But Ashraf has vastly underestimated the pull of loving Jamie. For the first time, he wants to face the water, rather than flee from it. He has underestimated the power of love in making people brave, stupid, or a little bit of both.

Maybe it’s time to take a leap—and sink or swim.

Blurb: When contact is lost with Mission Control, Commander John Dennington isn’t overly concerned. Such hiccups in communication are common. The first inkling of the larger problem occurs when he sees the very shape of the world change before his eyes.

John must ease his crew into a new mission and keep the Station together by any means necessary. The crew jeopardizes their chances by fighting his orders, but Jason Weiss, his mission specialist and the light of his life, makes John’s situation more bearable.

The smallest malfunction to Station or crew would spell the end for six astronauts trapped high above a ruined Earth. It’s their mission to carry on. Random chance of the universe hasn’t operated in their favor so far, but John is determined to see them all safely home.

ISBN: 9781634865913

Product Link: JMS Books | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: John and his crew of five are on a space station as the world below them implodes. They do all they can to take measures in making sure they can survive in space for as long as possible before trying to make it back to earth and seeing the damage caused.

At the same time John and his seconds, Jason, relationship comes out. This causes John to worry abut how the crew will react. But he worries for nothing as they take it all in stride. John almost dies during an outing outside the space station due to his suits oxygen gauge not working properly.

This story reminded me of the dangers of space travel and the need to survive at all costs. I thought the crew worked well together under duress as they each had a role to play in their survival. This first book spans the first year they are in space after the horrible events that took place on earth.

by

T.A. Creech

Sequel to Expedition 63 Book 2: Dark

Yakecen Sinohui can see the end in sight for the stranded crew of the Station. Each breath is a countdown until they’re able to return to Earth, until the poison clouds have cleared enough to leave. Though it’s a bad idea, Yakecen is drawn into the orbit of their resident biologist, Eli, someone who has kept Yakecen’s head in the game with his sunny presence.

The universe, however, has one last middle finger to give the weary crew.

Eli Palamo doesn’t object to Yakecen’s covert attention. He’s pined for his friend from the first moment they met, and isolation has strengthened their bond as the hardships forced them lean on each other completely. Yakecen is all he’s ever wanted. Nothing will be enough to tear them apart, if Eli has anything to say about it, not even Yakecen’s own demons. Definitely not the end of their disastrous mission and their fight for survival.

When he learns Jenner is a target, Logan knows he’s about to put a price on his own head because saving his mate was all that mattered.

ISBN: 978-64010-622-2

Product Link: Siren-BookStrand | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Peyton City’s collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in s
sequential order.

This is definitely one of those types of series that each story needs to be read back to back. The worlds are so twisted and the characters are completely complex. I have trouble keeping the good guys from the bad guys most of the time. It is a action packed story though with lots of excitement, adventure, twists and some hot sex scenes.

Logan was sent to find evidence against some shifters. To execute if need be, that is until he finds one of his targets to be his mate. Talk about a confusing situation for them both, because Jenner is not one of those tame pussy cats. He is all bite if need be, but he is falling for his sexy assassin mate. To bad someone wants them all dead.

Now normally I am all for books that are full of action, and assassins are majorly hot for me. The problems is trying to follow the pattern this author has put into her stories. For me a good story is remembered even if I am not reading it right then and there, and for me this was not that type of story. Now once I started reading it, I soon remembered the rest of the books. The characters however I did not. It is a difficult read to follow for me. Not so much that it took away from the story completely but I could not connect with the characters at all.

I had hoped with each book it would get easier, but when I read this one, the worlds just seem to collide with each other. I am still not completely sure of who is bad and who is good, but hey it will be interesting to figure it out in the end. Guess I will wait to see what this author makes for her readers in the future.

Emil knows Landyn is a man he needs in his life, but Landyn is so deep in the closet he won’t even accept a date from him. But he has no intentions of taking no for an answer.

When a chance meeting leads to a walk in the park, Landyn accidental marks Emil and the lion is more than up to the challenge of claiming his mate even if he has to stalk the jaguar with patience.

However, time might be the enemy as the conflict with the jackals heats up and lives are put on the line

Review: Each book in the Wildcat County collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

This series is actually connected to another series, Peyton City. You will get characters from both series mixing together. I will admit that this series is very complex and somewhat complicated. I will also admit that I sometimes get the guys mixed up. This is one of those stories that you must read in order and not as a stand alone type of story. The story is that complex and very fast pace. For me it is a must to read them right before I read a new one otherwise my butt gets real lost with all the characters. There is quite a bit of new characters as well as old ones and it can be a bit confusing to figure out who is who and what is what. The story is real complex for me, but still fun to read.

Landyn is a jaguar shifter who doesn’t want a mate. He is so far in the closet that he fears coming out. The thing is, his mate just so happens to be a powerful lion shifter who is going to go all out to get him. Well one night, one sweet walk, and his jaguar takes the decision out of his hands.

Emil protects those around him and wants his mate. He knows deep down his mate wants him, but getting him to admit it might be too much. To top it of the jackals are at it again.

It is a very action pact series and you never know what is going to happen next. However it is also very hard to follow also. I had trouble figuring out who was trying to cause problems but damn it was fun to figure it out.

I had a lot of fun with this book and can not wait to start the next one. I would definitely recommend it and the others.

Inside Darkness

by

Hudson Lin

He’s come in from the field, but the darkness has followed him home.

After a decade as an aid worker, Cameron Donnelly returns home jaded, tired, and with more than just a minor case of PTSD. Plagued by recurring nightmares but refusing to admit he has a problem, Cam quickly spirals into an alcohol-infused depression, and everyone around him is at a loss for how to help.

Journalist Tyler Ang met Cam on a reporting assignment in Kenya, and their first encounters were rife with hostility and sexual tension. Back in New York, their paths continually cross, and each time, Cam’s brokenness reminds Ty more and more of his own difficult childhood. Letting Cam in goes against Ty’s instinct to live life autonomously, but the damaged aid worker manages to sneak past his guard.

Their relationship is all sharp corners and rough edges, and just as they’re figuring out how to fit together, a life-threatening accident puts it all in jeopardy. If they want a future together, both will have to set aside their egos and learn to carry each other’s burdens.

Oops, Caught by Alli Reshi

Title: Oops, Caught

Series: Expanding Horizon 01

Author: Alli Reshi

Genre: Science Fiction

Length: Short Story (34 Pages)

Publisher: NineStar Press (January 2, 2017)

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Mark Noland can’t figure out how he got into such a fix. How does an ex-mercenary (okay, an almost-reformed mercenary) get himself caught, stuck in a holding cell, on a hostile alien planet? Held captive by strange bug-like creatures who’d just as soon eat him as look at him. How can a simple mission go so awry? To make matters worse, Noland’s not alone. His fellow prisoner, a certain high-ranking, elite Stella officer holds him responsible for their failed plan. Yeah, it was supposed to be a quick in and quick out sort of mission. But no… Officer Gavnson just can’t let it go.

It’s not so easy trying to plan an escape when Noland keeps getting distracted by how his mission partner so very nicely fills out his uniform. And he suspects Gavnson is hiding something, too. As tensions run high, secrets are revealed that will change the both of them. There’s nothing like gunfights and running for your life to make that special bond.

ISBN: 978-1-94595-235-7

Product Link: NineStar Press | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Mark was raised by mercenaries and became one. He is now, however an ex-mercenary. It would seem he does have a soul. To bad he is in a prison cell on a hostile planet. And guess what, his cell mate is none other than an high-ranking and very elite officer who he has the hots for. An officer who is blaming it all on him.

Short and very hot is what I would say this was. No sex, just kissing but hey you take what you can get. These two argue just like they are married so who knows. This author was new to me, so I wasn’t to sure what I was getting. However it was a fun little jolt to the system.

Although I do hope they manage to get some skin action in book two.

An Element of Surprise by E.A. Reynolds

Title: An Element of Surprise

Series: Peyton City 13

Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy

Length: Novel (133 Pages)

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Raiden is sent on what he thinks is a routine retrieval mission. When he arrives, he finds destruction and nearly dies as he finds his mate. Alimi is a soldier by profession with no intentions of settling down, but on a favor and an order from his alpha, he’s sent on a rescue mission. Little does he realize he’s on a collision course with his mate, who nearly dies on site.

Alimi isn’t in any hurry for a mate, but he’s not about to allow his one chance at happiness and love to pass him by. At the same time, he’s worried his mate could die on the front lines of the conflict. So, he gives him light duty until he has put him in harm’s way.

Raiden is more than eager to build a relationship with Alimi. Still, he questions Alimi’s decisions as a leader and that doubt just might prevent him from claiming his mate.

ISBN: 978-1-64242-054-7

Product Link: Siren-BookStrand | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Peyton City collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

The war is getting even harder to win, especially when the coyote’s and jackals get involved. Alimi is in charge of keeping one sectioned safe but even he knew that it was probably impossible. He was a hard core soldier and knew that death was the only way for those he is fighting. Then in walks his mate, and the things he once thought went out the window.

Raiden is not what I expected. He is not as hard core as his mate, but he is damn protective of his mate. What he thought was a routine mission has turned into a freaking nightmare. However he knows that the one person he wants the most had better survive.

The story and its previous ones are quite unique and surprising. It is a very complex story that involves not only the two characters you are reading about, but many more. This is one of those stories that you need to read the previous books right before you read the new one, because if not you will be lost. Half the time I had no clue who was who and what did they stand for. It is a very hard story to follow and does have a dark tone to it. Personally I don’t really care for it, but the story itself is pretty amazing. The sex is not the main focus of the story, but the war that is happening is.

For me this story is just too hard to focus on and is something more for a afternoon read. I like my stories to be a little bit more fun and sexy, which this definitely is not. I am glad to see that it might be reaching the end though. We will see what the next book brings.

Diego’s Secret

by

Bryan T. Clark

Can love conquer our deepest secrets and fears?

Are the challenges worth the struggle?

Eight years ago, at the age of seventeen, Diego Castillo came to the United States illegally from Mexico. Working long hours in the family landscaping business, he now shares a tiny apartment with his two machismo brothers in Southern California. Diego has worked hard to keep his desires for other men a secret from his brothers. He’s worked just as hard to keep his undocumented status a secret from the world he now lives in.

Thirty-two-year-old Winston Makena is beautiful, intelligent, and intimidating. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but no amount of money can relieve the enormous grief he is suffering from his husband’s sudden death. He is one of Diego’s best accounts and lives a life in stark contrast to his gardener’s. Winston’s wealthy upbringing has influenced his ideas, leading him to certain biases.

Winston believes he could never love again. Diego believes that his family’s lives depend on him keeping his secrets. What neither of them know is that the heart knows no such boundaries. Will social divisions, ideology, and secrets destroy both their chances for happiness?

Can love really conquer all?
