Summary: Michelin Empyrean, a rare white raven, has lived for centuries and he’s tired of loneliness. What makes life more burdensome is increasing responsibility and leadership of socially inclined corvid shifters. Preventing his kind, ravens, and especially crows, from robbing and menacing humans who remain unaware of their existence takes its toll. When one wayward creature’s thieving antics come to his attention, Mich decides to personally take the man to task. Terrel Slade is a crow. Practically everything he owns is stolen. His stash of pretties, and the fact he’s never been caught, makes him proud as a peacock. As much as he’d like to be the beautiful bird he struts around imitating, he believes his crow is sexier. Terre is no more than an omnivorous crow shifter with a penchant for shiny objects. A cunning bird, his existence is crammed with innovative ways to irritate his archenemy, the raven. That’s about to change. When Michelin halts Terrel’s lifestyle, more than sparks fly—the whole damn forest might burn to the ground. #darkfantasy #drama #enemiestolovers #gay #HEA #paranormal #religerotica #romance #shifters #travel #violence

Summary: When a change in collective conscious sends the Outsiders, a group of aliens, to the shadows below the city, humans reason that the demonization of their peers is simply more “humane.” There’s no question, nor doubt. Just acceptance. Lydia had embraced that sense of “truth” for as long as she can remember. The daughter of a powerful governor, she has been able to live her life with more comforts than most. Comforts can be suffocating, though, and when the opportunity to teach Outsider children in their private, “humane” community becomes available, she takes it. What she finds beneath the city is far from the truth she had grown to know. There she meets Alessia, an Outsider with the knowledge and will to shake the foundation of all those who walk above ground. The two find a new and unexpected connection despite a complete disconnect from the technological world. Or perhaps in spite of it. Still, it takes a lot more than an immutable connection to change the world. Lydia, Alessia, and a small group of Outsiders must navigate a system of corruption, falsehoods, and twists none of them ever saw coming, all while holding on to the hope to come out alive in the end. But it’s a risk worth taking, and a future worth fighting for.

Summary: From the outside looking in, John leads a boring life by day as a professor at a small liberal arts school in San Francisco. His nights are saucy, sinful even, when he services clients as a sex worker. He’s damned good at it, too, for reasons far surpassing simple technique, whether he’s entertaining super-hunky coeds or fulfilling the fantasies of married men on the down-low. Because John has a secret. It’s not that he’s thirty-five and feeling washed-up or that he’s got a crush on one of his clients. His secret could be he’s buried his rural, Southern roots, or that Paul, his first lover and preacher from back home, still preoccupies his thoughts. Maybe it’s the terrors he faced in conversion therapy as a teenager…but it’s none of those things. John’s secret is the Fountain, a mysterious well of energy within him he cannot control. Paul knows about the Fountain. So do John’s parents. Despite their best efforts to protect their dogma, it will all come out now that Paul has called John home to Georgia. To Bethesda.
