Yakuza

Guns and Roses: Book 1

(Tawano Arc: Book 1)

Lilia Blanc

College Student Hiroshi finds himself swept into a risky romance by yakuza leader Kazuo, who plays to all of his darkest fantasies—and finds real danger when an old enemy returns to Tawano.

The people of Tawano are used to the yakuza. They know to avoid them, to get off the streets when fights are brewing. At least, most of them do.

When college student Hiroshi makes a fatal mistake, and finds himself held at knifepoint, there's only one person who can help him: Kazuo, the yakuza who controls Tawano, and the one who started the fight in the first place.

They're completely different, and as their paths keep crossing, neither of them can understand the other—but it's clear they’ll have to, or the dangers that follow Kazuo could claim more than just the lives of a few city-folk.

Yakuza is a 75,000-word bittersweet romance.

Raven's Touch

House of Tannin #1

Siryn Sueng & Jessica Collins

After the raven-haired Rhys washes upon Lord Cadeon’s shore, neither man can deny their desire for each other. Or their shared love, Imogen. When a powerful enemy emerges, the three risk losing more than just their lives. They risk losing…each other.

Washed upon a foreign shore, Rhys Kelstai finds himself in the company of the very handsome Lord Cadeon of Tannin. With nothing other than vague memories of being thrown to the mercy of the sea—and a gaping hole in his side—Rhys offers servitude to Lord Cadeon as gratitude for saving his life.  Servitude in any way the lord desires.

Cadeon of Tannin has been heartbroken, left by his love, Imogen, months earlier. Since then, Cadeon has thrown himself into the protection of his subjects, ignoring his own carnal desires. Nevertheless, it seems the raven-haired Rhys is determined to melt the ice surrounding Cadeon’s heart, a notion Cadeon finds himself not only warming to…but craving.

When Imogen returns to his lands only a few weeks after the hedonistic Rhys appears, they are determined to show Cadeon the truth—three are better than two. Yet, when a dangerous witch, hell-bent on destroying Imogen, descends upon Cadeon’s land, the trio know this will be the fight of their life.  When she finds the only way to defeat Imogen is through her greatest threat—Lord Cadeon—she turns her sorcery elsewhere: Rhys Kelstai.

When lust, love, and danger collide there is only one truth—they will either all live together.... or die together.

True gay love is a fairy tale and the closet is comfier, until you meet the man of your dreams.

True gay love is a fairy tale. No matter what everyone says, that’s what Dustin firmly believes. As he starts his first year of university, Dustin is happy in the closet, where he can meet his gay needs secretly through anonymous hookups.

But when Dustin has his first hookup of the university term, with a muscular dark-eyed jock in the library men’s room, he can’t help notice the deep and immediate connection he feels, one that seems almost like love. It’s over as quickly as it begins and, as all anonymous hookups go, Dustin never expects to see him again.

The term gets difficult, especially when his math class begins. Dustin destresses with more hookups, but they don’t sate him the way they used to, and he finds he cannot stop thinking about his start-of-term encounter. Soon, his academic needs outweigh the sexual, and Dustin caves in and gets a tutor.

Attractive, well-built, dark-eyed…and a jock, his new tutor, Kyle, is none other than his anonymous hookup from the men’s room. Fate seems to have connected him to the man of his dreams.

Or maybe not, since Kyle is even more in the closet than Dustin is.
