Heart of the Wolf
What happens when a veterinarian ends up a patient in his own animal clinic?
Dr. Dae Anderson needs to lose the deadbeat boyfriend who is holding him back, but Jack is determined to hang on to Dae—even if he has to resort to violence.
Dae has worked hard to fit in among humans, and if his secret gets out, he’ll lose everything. His veterinary assistant, Sean, might be just the man to stand with Dae… against Jack and the world.
Courage of the Wolf
The most painful changes don’t involve the shape of the body, but of the heart….
Just as Dae and Sean are settling in to life as a couple, Dae is contacted by his brother, who still lives with his former pack and who exiled him for being gay.
If he refuses to return to Wyoming, a sociopathic alpha will slaughter Dae’s family one member at a time. And deep down, Dae knows he must confront his past before he can truly have a loving future with Sean. First, they have to stay alive.

When an irresistable man offers Christian a job that sounds too good to be true, he finds out the proposal comes with sharp teeth and the loss of his immortal soul.

That is until one night when Theron walked into the bar and turned his world upside down. Theron, a mesmerizing stranger with the ability to turn Christian on with a single look, makes Christian an offer he can't refuse, but in hindsight, probably should have - a job at Theron's ultra trendy club.

Doctor Tentacles and the Pheromone Incident by Liz Brooks shows Carter playing the mad scientist, Dr. Tentacle, but no one draws his eye -- or his nose -- like the new intern, David. In Frog, Kiernan Kelly presents George, a college student with a brilliant mind. When a cutting edge experiment goes wrong, he’s left with an unusual result that tests the strength of his relationship with his lover. In Aidee Ladnier’s The Applicant, Dr. Forbes Pohle knows interviewing lab assistants can be a tedious process -- luckily the malfunctioning robot bear in the other room helps liven things up. Meanwhile, in Kevinium by Diane Sheridan, Matt lusts for hunky housemate Kevin, who sees Matt only as a buddy. Then Kevin invents a new gas that has surprising sexual side effects.
In Test Subjects by M. Durango, An ESP project introduces grad student Evan to sexy professor Marcus, but an equipment glitch may lead to more than they bargain for. GS Wiley gives us Love Potion 3.5, where diner cook Tony loves Marilyn Monroe and his Chrysler New Yorker, but can't figure out why he's a flop with chicks until scientist Frank moves in downstairs. Jade Astor's A Meeting of the Minds, finds Dane, a neuroscientist, studying ESP when he meets Jesse, who claims to be psychic, and seems to know exactly what is on Dane’s mind. Wrapping up the anthology is Bronze by Alexis Hall, where a shy watchmaker turns his talents to the creation of an ideal lover, but where does love begin and programming end?
Over the course of his very long existence, vampire Raven has shed blood and taken it. Life has gotten dull, until the only excitement he can find is in racing the deadly sunrise, fearing it, and hoping at the same time that he might someday lose the race.
He was a Roman once, proud and strong, and shared the love of Valerian, a fellow gladiator. He thought their love would last a lifetime, until the night they were brought low, not by the bite of iron in the arena, but by the bite of a woman.
That night changed everything, and Raven spent the next fifteen hundred years trying to forget. When an antique ring arrives for him, he's plunged back into the very memories he's been trying to outrun. From ancient Rome and the gladiator games, to the crashing waves of modern day Malibu, Raven's past is about to take a bite out of his heart.
Vyper is a dashing pirate whose name strikes fear in the hearts of blackguards and civilians alike. A fortuitous message in a bottle leads Vyper to the island of Jamaica, but soon entangles him in a web of lies, deceit, and double-crosses, and introduces him to the man who may plunder Vyper's heart and destroy his world.
Byron Caldwell is a handsome, titled British landowner, whose holdings include a thriving plantation on the island of Jamaica. The only shadow on his otherwise brilliant future is his shrew of a sister, Elizabeth. It's his intention to marry her off as soon as possible, if only he can find someone willing to take her off his hands.
Elizabeth wants one thing and one thing only, the key to the Caldwell fortune, and she'll stop at nothing to get it, including arranging the kidnapping and eventual death of her brother by hiring the most ferocious pirate she can find.
The events spurred by a seemingly innocuous message found in a bottle washed ashore on a tiny island in the Caribbean soon set Vyper's life on its ear, and may ultimately bring about his demise.
When wishing for a way to save yourself from drowning under a deluge of personal disasters, remember that the old adage, "be careful what you wish for" applies doubly during the holidays. Robert Hanley finds this out the hard way when he books himself a time-travelling penny saver vacation that lands him knee deep in danger of losing not only his mind, but his heart.
Ares, the Greek god of War, has fallen on hard times. Modern technology has left him a proverbial fish out of water, relegated to finding battle of a sort in rough biker bars. When Hermes shows up with an offer from Zeus, king of the gods, Ares thinks he’s finally found a way to regain his past glory. A godling on Earth has come into his powers, and they’re strong enough to send a ripple through Olympus. Zeus needs the fledgling god dead. Dion, the godling in question, has no idea of his Olympian roots until he wakes up to find Ares there to kill him. But Dion isn’t totally defenseless, and Ares soon discovers he’s caught in a web of lies that only the Fates will be able to untangle.
