Bear Back Mountain by Artemis Wolffe

BBMsmallBear shifter Hunter Reed has never had much luck in the love department. As if his struggles weren’t enough, the pressure of his family’s tradition to be mated by their 30th birthday is wearing down on him. In an effort to appease his family and ensure a strong line of heirs, he joins a dating service as a last-ditch effort, not expecting it to lead anywhere.

Fitness trainer and former party-goer Alexander Gray only craves one thing now; the comfort of a lifelong relationship. When he meets Hunter at their gym, the smoldering tension between them is undeniable. Before either of them realize it, their relationship is moving to the next level, as secrets are revealed and mysteries solved. That is, until one day the dating service calls Hunter to notify him of his ‘match’.

Betrayed and broken, Alex writes off what he thought was something special as just another mistake in his life. When Hunter comes after him though, he isn’t taking no for an answer. For him, love is more important than rules, which are made to be broken. Armed with the power of a granted wish, Hunter tracks down his lover to claim him as his own and to provide his family with the heir they desire.

Ting Tang Tony and the Tale of the Little Erection That Could by Kat DeSalle & Kristin Leigh Jones

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00070]G-Strings, fake bodies, what lubricant to use, and which angle looks best on camera, these are all things Tony knows. What he doesn’t know is how to pursue a real relationship, one outside the industry that’s making him retire and leaving him behind. Tony DiMarco, aka Ting Tang Tony, made a big name for himself– regardless of being small–in an industry where size truly does matter. He’s had a long career hiding behind a camera lens where his shortcomings didn’t affect him at all. At 38 he’s forced to find a real life where hopefully size doesn’t matter. The last place he thought his life would change is in Florida.

Tripping over the gorgeous and upstanding, Emily Grant, snaps him out of the pity-pot he is just about to take a bath in. However, having never dated outside the industry has him second-guessing everything. How would someone possibly want his “little engine that could”? Can Tony open up about his playboy-style career, and more importantly, can he overcome the insecurities that he’s shoved aside his whole life?

Tony’s got his work cut out for him, he needs to penetrate the walls Emily’s built to protect herself and her own insecurities. Will she be able to handle Tony’s crazy double life he’s trying to hide from her, the one he lives back home in L.A.? There’s a small chance it might work, that it might fit—something Tony certainly isn’t used to. This may be his one opportunity to find that missing puzzle piece he’s only been able to fantasize about.

The whirlwind journey these two set out on will keep you rooting for the underdogs, and teach you that it’s not always the size of the package that’s important—it’s what’s inside that matters most.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Kat DeSalle is one half of the crazy writing duo that created the HAS BEEN SERIES.

Born and raised in California, she graduated with a degree in Fine Art, which introduced her to a number of creative outlets. She dabbled in various jobs ranging from teaching art, to working in the finance industry. Ultimately, she found her passion in writing. Now, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and children, where she follows her dream of writing romance novels.

KristinLeigh Jones is the wearer of many hats–not literally–although she does look good in one. From being a full-time mom, wife, chef, maid, dog walker, litter box scooper to owning a photography business and working as a freelance editor … She now adds writer to her long resume. Between juggling all these tasks she squeezes in as much time as possible for snuggling her babies, reading, and watching football on Sundays in the fall. Da Bears! Hailing from the Midwest her whole life, she fully appreciates the change of seasons but admits to really only enjoying it less than 5 months of the year.

Kristin is very thankful to have found another half of her brain in her dear friend Kat. Who, might be thousands of miles away, is never farther than a text or a phone call. Together they make up the dynamic duo writing and producing the hilariously romantic and sexy “Has-Been Series”.

Welcome to the Jungle. by Lauren Short

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was tired of reading romances where the woman is fragile and wilting. Rose isn’t like that, she is cunning and resourceful. And I wanted to place a ‘baddy’ that she helps to defeat, rather than just sitting back and waiting to be rescued.

Nathan tries out for the football team to impress her, but even though he doesn’t make the cut, he manages to get invited to one of Daniella’s famous parties.

Author Bio:
I first started writing stories online when I was 16 years old. A natural introvert, I felt it was difficult to find people who understood me. When I posted my first story, I suddenly felt like I had a way to connect with people that was punishingly elusive elsewhere. The passion of writing is a force that gives my life meaning, and I’ve never looked back.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve been interested in the genre of gender change themed romance/erotica for some time. It’s a genre that’s all about bucking traditional roles and allowing male characters to explore their feminine longings. This book is for every man who’s fantasized about becoming a woman,is book, as will for every woman who has dreamed of guiding a man through that journey.

My Fairy Godmother Must Be on a Strike by Maria Arca

indexAs it turns out, challenges can often reveal the greatest opportunities.

Ada Lee was perfectly content just being herself. Yes, was – then her boyfriend David suddenly got sick of her and broke off their relationship. To make things worse, the break-up was anything but graceful. Poor Ada overheard David trashing her to a “frenemy”, saying she had put on weight, become socially awkward, and was all-in-all incompetent at life. Ouch!

What band-aid could possibly heal this ailing heart? Ada’s friends think they have the magic cure and quickly swoop into action to help Ada patch her broken spirit with a beautiful exterior. Ada’s new makeover boosts her confidence to new heights as her friends encourage her to focus on the superficial and lose weight, dabble in make-up, obtain a new fashion sense (or get one, period), and touch up her social skills.

Ada’s new look turns heads and brings in all the attention she could ever want. So why does Ada feel strangely empty? Sometimes the most obvious things are the most difficult to see, and Ada may miss an important opportunity right under her nose. As she finds out, her new glitz and glamor have blinded her, and she is about to miss life-changing opportunities and hurt those she loves. Will she be able to get back to what really matters and fix things before it is too late?

Author Rebecca Moisio explores self discovery and what is really important in “My Fairy Godmother Must Be on a Strike”. Her highly-rated first novels are enjoyed by readers looking for fresh characters and entertaining plot twists. Be sure not to “pull an Ada”! Don’t miss the opportunity to read Moisio’s enthralling “Death at Penrose Hill” and “The Runner”.

I always thought office life would be so much more interesting if it involved a little less paper work and a little more sex on desks…. so that’s the story I decided to write.
