Blurb: It seemed like they had everything, but they didn't have Jack.

Without question Spencer Hartley burns hot for his girlfriend, Rory, but his other desires are hidden down deep. He might blow things up for a living and climb mountains for kicks, but the scariest thing in his life is the truth about his sexuality.

Jack Rothman works hard and plays dirty. After long, demanding days in his family's engineering firm, he indulges in the pleasures of silk restraints and fine wine. Lots of hot meaningless sex helps him forget that he's suffocating, with no one to give him a reason to breathe.

When a catastrophic accident traps Spencer in a flooded subway tunnel with Jack, they need each other to survive. But something strong stirs down there in the darkness, and it's more than their desperation to live. There's a spark between them that's impossible to ignore.

Rory Campbell would love to give Spencer the one thing he doesn't have, the freedom to explore his secret desires. But how does that fit into her picture-perfect relationship? When Jack invites the couple to his sprawling Hamptons beach house, Rory realizes that she has secret desires of her own—the kind only Jack's Dominant hand across her bare bottom can satisfy...

Blurb: Two hockey players. One woman. Secret crushes. Three hearts are on the line.

True love isn’t a game. Games have rules, and this romance breaks them all.

Scott Sharpe has a secret. Starting a new life in Chicago is going to help him leave his past in the dust, right beside his life-long dream of being a superstar hockey player. Ever since his career-ending knee injury sidelined him, Scott was left drifting and aimless. He’s never been the type of guy to settle down. Love? That doesn’t happen for players like him. Falling for his best friend’s girlfriend is not an option. Neither is falling for his best friend.

Life is on track for Blake Hawkins. He’s starting a great career with the Chicago Stormers, he’s just bought his first home, and he’s moving in with his girlfriend. His best friend coming to town should be icing on the cake. But when Scott shows up, he rocks Blake’s world in ways he never saw coming. Blake will do almost anything to protect what he has going for him. But this time, following the rules might the riskiest move he could make.

Lora Berry is all about stability. Her relationship with her long-term boyfriend is going well. Finally moving in with Blake is a big step in the right direction. She knows where they’re heading as a couple. Until Scott comes to stay and everything changes. 

After one hot night that she’ll never forget, Lora is determined not to lose the kind of love she didn’t even know she was missing. But it’s not that easy when you have two very stubborn guys on your hands. When she tries to get everyone together, three hearts are on the line.

This is a standalone mmf bisexual romance without a cliffhanger.

Blurb: The Montgomery Ink series continues with a forbidden love between three friends and a past that they can’t escape.

Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him—it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he’d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he’s falling for someone else...or at least he thinks he is.

Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can’t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake’s past shows up at their door, she’s forced to admit that if she doesn’t take the risk of a lifetime, she’ll regret it for the rest of her days.

Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he’s back and ready to see what he’s missed. He’s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they’re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take.
It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it’s not only their hearts on the line…but also their lives.

On the run, her car disastrously breaks down in at the top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere.

The Bearclaw brothers are descendants of the ancient Anikota tribe of Indians. Their beast spirit and blessing from the Maker allows them the ability to sense the one who will complete their soul.

As guardian of the shifter territory, Calum McGregor wields the power of life and death over his people. When a pretty human female arrives in their wilderness town, he and his littermate become increasingly concerned.

Her hopes are crushed when a deadly enemy follows her from the city, and the shifters discover she knows their secret. Now nobody is safe—least of all Victoria.

BlurbThe Courtland Chronicles - Books One - Three (Boxed Set) (Courtland Chronicles) by Cat Grant - Romance > Anthology / Bundle eBook

Eric. Nick. Ally. Three lives destined to be intertwined…

By Chance – A life of wealth and privilege doesn’t equal happiness—just ask Eric Courtland. Growing up with a cold, unfeeling father and unstable mother has taught him exactly what he doesn’t want out of life or love. Popular, wholesome, straight Nick Thompson is far more temptation than Eric’s prepared for, but Nick’s warm manner gradually cracks through Eric’s prickly protective shell.

Independent Eric doesn't know the first thing about being in a relationship, much less with a lover who can't even admit he's gay. But conservative Nick can't seem to find his way out of his own personal closet.

Rock, meet hard place.

Strictly Business – Eric Courtland is hungry for revenge against the cold, unfeeling father who never loved him, and who drove his mother to an early grave. Tossed headfirst into the shark-tank world of big business, Eric soon learns it’s eat or be eaten, and has no choice but to throw in his lot with ruthless titan of industry Branford Crane.

Still reeling from his mother’s death, Eric plunges into a dark spiral of self-destruction, rejecting his longtime partner Nick’s love and support in favor of the harsh tutelage Bran offers him, in and out of the bedroom.

But one night, when Bran finally pushes Eric beyond any reasonable limit, Eric realizes how far he’s fallen—and how desperately he needs Nick to help pull him back from the edge.

Complications – Tired of taking a backseat to Eric’s burgeoning political career, Nick calls it quits. A devastated Eric seeks consolation in liquor—and the arms of college friend Ally Taylor.

Their passionate rebound affair deepens into something more. Still, Ally’s thrown when Eric proposes marriage, with no mention of love. His wealth and connections would certainly help her career, but is their intense physical connection and Eric’s promise of fidelity enough?

But the growing bond between the newlyweds is threatened when Nick re-enters the picture. Secrets, lies and betrayal will add up to heartbreak for everyone—unless Eric can bring himself to choose between the man he’s loved for over a decade, or the wife he can’t bear to hurt.

Follow Eric, Nick and Ally’s story in these three exciting novellas—the prelude to a lifelong love affair that continues in The Arrangement and Triad!

Dylan Wade is no fan of Claire's, but no way can he leave the jilted bride in her time of need. Bringing her home seems like a good idea--until he remembers his new roommate. Dylan's relationship with Aidan is...complicated. And with Claire thrown into the mix, life becomes even more...complicated.

Claire is blindsided by her attraction not only to Dylan, but also to Aidan, a man she's just met. Soon they're caught up in an all-consuming sexual storm they can't fight even if they wanted to. Yet Claire wonders if it can last, or if she's just setting herself up for more heartache.

Lord Oliver Morewell was perfectly happy living in Amsterdam with the love of his life. However, Lord Alden Swenson has been summoned to England for at least the next twenty years, and Oliver is committed to his lover. He also won't deny what his soul knows to be true. Alden is his past, present and future, but Fiona belongs there, too. Lord Alden can cope with the disapprobation of Oliver's family and the whispers of society, but Fiona is a complication he did not expect, despite the vivid fantasies he and Oliver have had about finding a woman to make their relationship complete.

Once Fiona is in residence, wild horses can't keep him away, despite her stubborn streak of independence and outright refusal to explain her mysterious absences, late night disappearances and male companions. Alden and Oliver will have to conquer Fiona's distrust, her secrets, but most of all her heart in their search for perfect, if unconventional, love.

When his own father seeks to banish him and deny him his right to a mate, Prince Nial takes matters into his own hands. Accompanied by a battle-tested warrior who volunteers as his second, he sets out for Earth to take what is his, but upon his arrival he quickly discovers that the same horrifying enemies who once took him captive now hunt his mate as well.

Though believing she has been rejected by a mate she never even met stings more deeply than she would like to admit, Jessica does her best to focus on the dangerous task of bringing down the people who framed her. But before long, her world is turned upside down all over again when two huge, handsome aliens save her life and then inform her that she is their matched mate and they have come to Earth to claim her.

Jessica is far from ready to meekly submit, but she soon learns that her new mates expect to be obeyed and defiance will result in a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom.

When Wyatt catches some thugs harassing the pretty daughter of his bosses, he doesn’t hesitate to call on his partner Clayton to kick some asses. But then he realizes what a temptation the sweet, sheltered Hope presents. Especially her naughty wish to unleash her inner vixen—with both of them.

Hope has no doubt her playmates want to fulfill her every desire, but something’s holding them back. She has an idea what those somethings are. With luck, and a little help from her Compass cousins to hold her fathers off, she’ll find what she needs in the shadows of the past—and convince them she’s found two men of her own who are worthy of her love.

Warning: Compass books bring love in every direction and every season. But not all of life’s moments are filled with joy. Take the good with the bad, and the steamy.

Notes For some reason I was thinking that this was a series of standalones. It seems I'm mistaken and they have to be read in sequence. The first book is The Sex,  and the second book is The Game. I think I might have had these on the regular Reading Radar posts.

Blurb: (From ARe) Prisoner of their whims, it was impossible to resist them further. With a shock of pleasure, she realized they were her masters--not just one, but both--to which she surrendered herself, body first, juggled upward and sideways, until she had no choice but to ride their tide, swept along with their passion, swelling uncontrollably as they drove her into bliss, her convulsions sucking them to the balls and squeezing them dry.

(From Amazon)Virtus Saga's chapter 3 continues the dark fantasy story of Prince DuncanCaldwell, now Leader of the High Council, Lord Templeton, his lover, and Ylianor Meyer, their woman. The tale started in The Sex, Virtus #1, with Duncan and Ylianor meeting again after ten years' estrangement. Then it continues in The Game, Virtus #2, The Leader, Virtus #4, and The Pledge, Virtus #5, each picking up from where the previous one leaves off. Given the saga nature of this ongoing fantasy series, it is advisable to read each book in sequence.

Blurb: Three best friends.
Two lovers.
One death.

Maximus hadn’t grown up surrounded with any love in his life, but he didn’t allow that to stop him from falling madly in love…with two people. Morgan and Samantha were already in love with one another, so he forced himself to be content with his role as best friend and protector to both of them. It wasn’t a difficult task. Morgan was carefree, full of life, and suffered from a serious case of hero-worship where Maximus was concerned; Samantha was a delicious mix of sweet and sassy and could easily put both men in their place.

Maximus swore friendship would be enough … had to be enough because he would never do anything that would destroy the love Morgan and Samantha felt for one another. But when tragedy strikes and takes Morgan away, will he step up and confess his feelings to Samantha? Can Samantha ever love Maximus the way she loved Morgan? And what happens when they find out Morgan isn't really dead after all?

What's On The Reading Radar #TBR #WishList

What am I doing posting a Reading Radar on a Wednesday?? 

Well, I haven't had the chance to put one of these together in a couple of weeks. I'm working to get a few posts put together and scheduled so that I have something up every week. With Molly being sick, my schedule will revolve around my visits with her--which might be spur of the moment decisions. Since the blogger app is terrible, I need to get the more complicated posts scheduled when I have the time. 

So here we are, playing catch up. The Reading Radar Menage edition will be up this coming Saturday and then hopefully I'll have a more regular schedule again. :)

Under the conflicting mentorships of one of lucha libre’s famed gay exótico wrestlers and an ambitious young luchador whose star is on the rise, Gabriel must choose between traditions, which ground him but may limit his future, and the lure of sex and success, which may compromise his independence.

BlurbWhere there’s smoke, there’s fire… Tired cliché or true story? Jones Hudson can't wait to touch Tru and find out. 

Growing up in Ember Peak, Colorado, Jones nurtured dreams as big as the Rockies. Why else would a flat-broke college student believe he has a shot with Truitt Larkin, the billionaire CEO of Larkin Corp? And, sure, Tru might own the fab, five-thousand-acre Ember Peak Ranch, where Jones is just the son of a ranch employee, but that doesn’t mean a future with Tru is doomed, does it? When he finally, finally convinces Tru to break his chiseled-in-rock no-sex-ever policy, Jones is sure smoke will never shroud Tru’s silver-flame eyes again.

But fire burns and dreams crash. And when Tru shuts down Jones’s hopes, Jones leaves Ember Peak—and a big chunk of his heart—for good.

Tru knows he’s responsible for fracturing his valued friendship with Jones. Indulging his attraction to the younger man was selfish and destructive—something he’ll always regret. When Jones returns to Ember Peak for a family wedding, Tru wants a chance to heal their friendship and give back to Jones the comfort of coming home. But sparks fly the moment they reunite, and they scramble to douse the passion that’s burned them both before. Yet a flicker of hope glows brightly, and soon they need all their courage to see their way to a future together.

BlurbGavin Ryder, an owl shifter, is not only an ADA for the human justice system, he is also the head counsel for The Paranormal Council. He is called in to prosecute Avery Madison and his father Carver Jinx for crimes against the paranormals of Crystal, Colorado. Although Ryder is used to threats in his line of work, he never thought that his life would be endangered twice in under forty-eight hours. First, someone tries to actually kill him by forcing him off a mountain road, second, by placing a bomb in his car. Thank the Gods for Detective Paul Malone, his mate.

Paul is a phoenix shifter who has worked as a detective for Crystal for many years, but he is not used to working with others besides his long-time friend Angelo. So when his Captain informs him that the prosecuting attorney will be joining him to uncover more evidence in both Avery and Jinx’s cases, Pauly is not too thrilled.

While taking a flight in his phoenix form to let his beast out, Pauly watches in horror as a truck tries to force a small car off the road and over a cliff. Pauly dives down to see what he can do to help, where he witnesses the driver shift into an owl. Pauly quickly jumps in to rescue the shifter and is not only shocked, but happy to find that the man is his mate. But someone is out to kill Ryder.

The two must work together to save Ryder, and find the evidence needed to put Avery and Jinx away for a long time. But what they don’t know is the true depth of the evil that surrounds them and to what length that force will go to stop Ryder and Pauly from finding the truth.

Blurb"You ain't gonna like what I have to tell you, but I'm gonna tell you anyway. See, my name is Karen Memery, like memory only spelt with an e, and I'm one of the girls what works in the Hôtel Mon Cherie on Amity Street. Hôtel has a little hat over the o like that. It's French, so Beatrice tells me."

Set in the late 19th century—when the city we now call Seattle Underground was the whole town (and still on the surface), when airships plied the trade routes, would-be gold miners were heading to the gold fields of Alaska, and steam-powered mechanicals stalked the waterfront, Karen is a young woman on her own, is making the best of her orphaned state by working in Madame Damnable's high-quality bordello. Through Karen's eyes we get to know the other girls in the house—a resourceful group—and the poor and the powerful of the town. Trouble erupts one night when a badly injured girl arrives at their door, beggin sanctuary, followed by the man who holds her indenture, and who has a machine that can take over anyone's mind and control their actions. And as if that wasn't bad enough, the next night brings a body dumped in their rubbish heap—a streetwalker who has been brutally murdered.

Bear brings alive this Jack-the-Ripper yarn of the old west with a light touch in Karen's own memorable voice, and a mesmerizing evocation of classic steam-powered science.
