I kept today's list short and simple. :D
Title: Nothing Gained
Series: The Chosen One, 4
Author: Macy Blake
Length: 254 pages
Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Fantasy / Poly / Gay / #read
Notes: Another great addition to the series. Sawyer finally gains his last two guardians and along with it, revelations that aren't comfortable. I really look forward to the next book. If it's the last one for Sawyer's group, I will be really sad.
Blurb: Sawyer Smith’s life is a hot mess.
Hot, because he’s found six of his eight mates. To say things are heating up between them is putting it mildly.
A mess, because he’s the Chosen One, the son of a goddess with no powers of his own, tasked with fixing the broken magic in his world... and he has no clue how to do it.
With every new layer of mystery that's revealed, Sawyer's doubts about his abilities get stronger. To complicate matters, Sawyer is growing weaker by the day. Meanwhile, his newest guardian, the one he’s calling Yellow Eyes, refuses to reveal himself.
With time running out, Sawyer's desperate enough to make a daring move -- one that's potentially deadly for him and his mates. Because at the end of the day, if there’s nothing ventured… there’s Nothing Gained.
Title: Stand in Place
Author: Mary Calmes
Length: 311 pages

Blurb: One summer won’t be enough….
Kaenon Geary was done fighting the small minds in his sleepy Texas town when he made his escape and never looked back. But now, for the first time in more than a decade, he’s returned to Braxton to spend the summer with his beloved grandmother—her final summer—and no longer recognizes the home he’d left behind all those years ago.
Everything has changed.
Everything but the man he’s never stopped wanting.
Brody Scott was the local football hero who became a gridiron champ, but he retired from the fast lane to forge a new life as the Chief Constable of Braxton. He longs to put down roots in the community he is now sworn to protect. Though he’s not at all sure he can protect his heart from the quiet, earnest boy he once knew. The boy who has come back a man.
Starting something would be a mistake. Kaenon plans to fly away at summer’s end, but his love is something Brody desperately wants to have…and to keep. Their days together are numbered. Unless some simple hometown magic can make all the right things bloom and show them the true definition of love.

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Sci-Fi / Gay / #WishList
Notes: This sounds fun.
Blurb: (This is a paranormal short story and the start of a new series. The first part of this story appeared on Stormy Glenn’s ManLove Fantasies Blog of Summer 2019.)
Vraylar is a dragon shifter of royal blood, who calls Xenos his home. Xenos is a planet light years away from Earth whose inhabitants are shifters of all types. Xenos is usually a peaceful planet, but in an effort to seize the throne, a war has been waged. When an assassination attempt is made on Vraylar and the unborn child of the now deceased King and Queen, Vraylar makes a decision to send the child away, in the hopes that it will be protected until the war is over and it’s safe to return.
Vladislav Dracula, Slava to his friends, is the first vampire ever created and the current lord of the North American covens. Being centuries old, makes him a force to be reckoned with as he gains a new power as each century passes. When Slava wakes up in an alley with a briefcase cuffed to his wrist and no recollection of how it got there, he has to work at getting his memories to return, because without them, he has no idea what to do with the case or its contents. And not knowing can be a dangerous thing.
Vraylar has to end the war before the case protecting the heir opens. If he doesn’t, the enemy will stop at nothing to end the child’s life. With Slava’s memory on the fritz, he’ll be a sitting duck if Vraylar fails. Meeting your mate in the middle of a war is not how either thought things would go, but if they’re to stop what’s coming, they’ll have to work together to protect innocent lives.
