    Summary

    “We could dance like lovers now, out on the street?”

    “Not everywhere,” Nicky said. Joe stretched his hand out over the space between their beds, and Nicky took it and laced their fingers together. “Cities are safer, but there is still danger.”

    Joe sighed. Nicky had rubbed his thumb over Joe’s knuckles and wished that Joe had not suffered for so long only to be reborn into a world that was still steeped in prejudice, in the same intolerance and hatred that caused all his pain. “I would like to dance with you like that one day,” Joe told him, and Nicky had to press a kiss to their tangled fingers.

    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    Alpha Sheriff Steve Rogers doesn’t know what to think of the new school teacher in his small town.

    Omega Tony Carbonell is a quick witted, sharp tongued, sarcastic Omega with a butt that won’t quit– and a temper that won’t quit either.

    Every attempt the Sheriff makes to get close is met with rolled eyes and snarkiness, but finally Tony gives in a little bit and the pair spends a few moments together that leaves the Alpha panting, desperate for more.

    But there’s a layer of secrets beneath the Omega’s attitude, and the more Steve pushes, the more Tony pulls away.

    When Tony’s past comes back in a terrifying way, Steve learns more about the Omega than he ever thought he would, secrets that make him rage, stories that break his heart, and when Tony is kidnapped, the Sheriff saddles up to bring his Omega home.

    But Tony doesn’t consider Wildrock home, and he certainly doesn’t consider Steve his Alpha.

    How can the Stetson wearing Sheriff convince the stubborn Schoolteacher that they are meant to be?

    Summary

    Patrick Brewer of all people sliding into his DM's is intriguing.

    Because just two days ago, David stumbled across Patrick Brewer's Raya profile.

    He remembers a single black-and-white photo of a clean-cut looking guy, wearing a baseball cap and laughing, his face turned away from the camera so it's seen mostly in profile. He had a great smile. David was struck by the way his eyes crinkled in the corners, by how genuine he looked.

    PATRICK, 30
    @patrickbrewer
    Lives In: Toronto, ON
    From: Toronto, ON
    Work: MLB Baseball

    David swiped right without reading further.

    PROFILE NOT FOUND.

    Okay...

    ---

    Patrick Brewer, the MVP of last year's World Series and a viral social media star, has a bit of a crush on David Rose, a gallerist living in New York City and occasional guest star on his sister's reality show. He convinces himself to do something about it - after all, he's only in town to play the Yankees for a few nights.
