What happens when you call your rival opponent Daddy?
Erik’s whole life is indoor volleyball. He wasn’t born a talented player, but through hard work he has honed himself into a great one. With a competitive streak a mile wide, he’ll go to any length to win—even flirt with his opponents to rile them up.
After losing the chance to compete in nationals, Erik enters college with a stronger drive, throwing himself into his passion for the sport. Head back in the game, he will follow his dreams all the way. He trains harder than he ever has before, pushes himself to the limit, and spares no time for distractions.
But summer break from college brings a surprise run-in with his old rival, Sam. Seeing him forces every bitter feeling about losing to Sam’s team to the surface and Erik can’t resist the opportunity to get some revenge. It’s only meant to be a joke, something to get under Sam’s skin and fluster him. Erik doesn’t expect interest to reflect in his rival’s eyes, or for the flirtatious prank to stir a serious need inside of him. It would be one thing if it happened once, but Erik and Sam’s paths keep crossing, making it impossible for Erik to ignore these urges.
Erik has no idea they are both playing with fire and if he isn’t careful, it may get him burned.

A mixed-blood Catholic seminarian struggles to discern his true calling: the priesthood or his ex-lover, a proud but damaged Ojibway man.
It’s been ten years since Emery Matawapit sinned, having succumbed to temptation for the one thing in his life that felt right, another man. In six months he’ll make a life-changing decision that will bar him from sexual relationships for the rest of his life.
Darryl Keejik has a decade-long chip on his shoulder, and he holds Emery’s father, the church deacon, responsible for what he’s suffered: the loss of his family and a chance at true love with Emery.

Hoping to save the church, Emery races home. But stopping Darryl is harder than expected when their sizzling chemistry threatens to consume Emery. Now he is faced with the toughest decision of his life: please his devout parents and fulfill his call to the priesthood, or remain true to his heart and marry the man created for him.
He shivered at the breeze. Even so, he felt hot, anxious even. He remembered the man’s touch, when he slipped his fingers underneath his clothes, and how comforting it was, for the man to warm him up despite the upcoming storm. For Luke to simply relish in someone else’s touch, though the world he trapped himself in was cold to the touch. It was, at the moment, the first time he felt human. In a really, really long while.
However, just before he drifted off, he felt something envelop him in the dark. It was familiar, and though he heard a voice, Luke couldn’t place where. Something light touched his forehead, but just as he was about to see who it was, he fell asleep.
The next morning, that presence was gone. Luke was left staring at the empty, a quiet heartbreak resting within his chest. A tear slip out from his eyes, but nevertheless, he stood. No matter what, he had to keep going.
‘The two stared out at the sky. Alex reminisced on what could have been, what he’d already achieved. He thought about Alice, about the lovers he abandoned, the dreams he built for himself. And as the sun kept rising, he couldn’t help but turn to Erin then. He titled his chin up, and kissed him once more, their hands still intertwined.
‘Light filled the sky, and just like that, everything faded to white.’
We fell in love within the veil. Our arms caressed our lovers, as we spoke our promises in the dark. We made our vows, and made them ours, no matter what anyone else may think. Our hearts called out to our lovers, and when Death finally comes for us, we’ll fall asleep softly, gently.
