Loving Loch

Check off the bucket list? Maybe Love should be added to the list?

David Rowan spends his days crunching numbers and his nights watching history or travel shows. He’d been out of school for four years when a note from a fraternity brother reminded him of his “Bucket List” that they’d made up one year for pledges at the fraternity as a ‘get to know the brothers’ activity. But maybe it was time for him to take his list and make it a reality.

Loch Gallagher—yes, his ma had a sense of humor—lives and swims in and around Loch Ness just a little south of Inverness, Scotland. Okay, every time he went for a swim in the Loch, he did cause a stir. Shite, with the inventions of the camera and the smartphone, a Loch Monster couldn’t even get in a swim without someone taking a picture.

When David decided to take his ‘trip of a lifetime’ to Loch Ness, how was he to know that everything he’d always known was going to be thrown out the window? Loch had always scoffed at his ma’s declarations that when he was least expecting it, his mate would show up on his doorstep. The unlikely pair discovers that maybe they’re not so unlikely at all. Can they find a balance between love and reality and make a life together?

Shift to Gray

Bryan is perfectly happy with his life. He has a best friend he can rely on, a tomcat he can’t but loves anyway, and neighborhood hellhounds that he spoils outrageously. But New Rialto can be dangerous, and when shadow wraiths cross his path, his life changes forever.

As a natural-born shifter Alpha, Dusty has gathered a pack of true gargoyles, magical creatures of stone and magic. His Pack has grown stronger as the gargoyles under his protection find their chosen ones, a binding that stabilizes their magic and transforms the chosen humans into shifters.

When Bryan tries to return a lost gargoyle, Dusty realizes that life has gotten a lot more complicated. He’ll need finesse and skill to convince Bryan to accept his role in the Pack - as a gargoyle shifter and as Dusty’s mate. And it’s starting to look like the hellhounds that follow Bryan like demented lapdogs are the least of Dusty’s worries, as a lethal new threat stalks the city.

Professional Courtesy - J.V. Speyer

by J. V. Speyer

Published:

Genre:

This is the story of two college professors who share an office and not much else – until the holiday season works its magic.

Eric’s semester hasn’t been going all that well. Not only have renovations to the English Department’s physical space forced him to share an office with the department’s newest faculty member, Mike Kistler, his mother showed up at the beginning of the semester with all her worldly possessions and a U-Haul. It’s not that he doesn’t care for his mother, but she’s disruptive. She keeps wanting to honor traditions they never cared about when he was growing up, starting with the giant antique advent calendar she dragged over from her parents’ house in Hamburg.

Eric has a solution, though. He might not have much interest in his mom’s traditions, but his irritating office mate does. He’ll bring Kistler over, and his mom will have someone who cares, and someone to speak German with, and Eric will be left alone to grade papers in peace.

Mike is the rising star of the English Department. He’s worked damn hard to get from homeless teen to young PhD, he’s proud of his accomplishment, and he loves to give back. He likes his work. He could live without his office mate, who’s attractive but stuffier than an overfull burrito. He’s shocked when Eric invites him to help his mother celebrate Advent, but intrigued by the old traditions. And it’s been more than ten years since he’s had anything like a family to celebrate anything with, so he agrees.

Moving from a cramped office to a family setting shifts things for Eric and Mike, and they start to see each other through different eyes. Can they find love, or will old family issues keep them apart forever?

Sugar Cookies and Computer Code

Tandy has never fit in with the others at the North Pole, whether it’s his size or love for computers. But he wants to contribute to the mission of making the world’s children happy. Every elf does. Taking time away from his baby — a new process for the Nice and Naughty lists — to do the yearly census on the Isle of Misfit Toys just doesn’t fit into his schedule.

It seemed like every time El turned around, there was another elf getting under foot for a census. Did the elves think that toys just disappeared from the Isle? And those that arrived were accounted for before they arrived. All El wanted at this point in his life was to become a baker at the North Pole. He’d had the love of a child already and Jack Frost did it hurt when he was no longer in his heart. Maybe if he avoided the elf this year, they’d just leave him to his cookies.

Can the magic of the holidays bring these two together? El and Tandy both need help healing and isn’t Christmas the season of miracles?

Genre:

When the right space pilot walks into his bar, a desperate bartender uses all his wiles (and tentacles) to talk the man into business and his bed--but the spacer is still enslaved by his past and isn't sure he can deal with a two-armed lover, much less one with six.

As the supply shipments stop coming, Teo Houdin needs all his tentacles to keep his waystation bar open. Facing a riot by thirsty miners stranded in the backwater of the galaxy, Teo helps a greenie space pilot buy a ship in return for a regular haul of liquor. But he longs for the courage to invite the enigmatic spacer to fill his lonely bed as well.

Still smarting from his newly implanted navigational ports, Jimenez knows owning his own ship will prevent him from ever being bought and sold again. For a former slave, transporting cargo through the emptiness of space sounds like paradise, but after meeting the compassionate and sexy Teo, his heart feels empty, too.

At the edge of the galaxy's spiral arm, can Teo convince Jimenez that the heart has its own tentacles and theirs should be entwined forever?
