Sometimes you have to see yourself through someone else’s eyes to understand who you really are.

Colt – Life tackled me when I wasn’t looking. One minute I’m in the zone, preparing for what I hope will be another winning season, and the next I’m struggling to keep my focus on the game instead of the prim and proper beauty my agent hired to help me plan for life after football. Usually women flock to me, but this one I have to chase, and I can tell she won’t be easy to win. That doesn’t scare me. It terrifies me. I’ve disappointed every woman I’ve ever known by putting the game first, and now that I found something I want more than another ring, I’m not sure I’m man enough to win off the field.

Samantha – I’m no stranger to alpha males. In my line of work they come with the territory, and I’ve been around long enough to hold my own. That’s why the cocky football player with a reputation for scoring on and off the field is such a surprise. On the surface he’s the kind of guy who could ruin my credibility, but when he sets his focus on me, he lets me see the person behind the persona, and it’s someone I respect. Like even. I swore never to mix business with pleasure, but the perfectly imperfect ball player is hard to resist, which begs the question; is he worth breaking my one and only rule?

Is love any less real when it’s illicit?

Sawyer – I thought my life was over when my mom moved us in with her boyfriend, the father of the hottest guy in school. I mean, could there be a worse scenario than being forced to live across the hall from the object of your first major crush? Turns out there is. Falling in love with him and getting my heart broken was worse. As if once wasn’t enough, he’s back in my life, trying to do it again.

Wes – Senior year of high school, instead of living it up, enjoying those last few months with my friends and teammates, I pined away for the girl across the hall, who I absolutely couldn’t have. Aside from the fact that she was two years younger, she was my future stepsister. The ramifications were endless; disappointing our parents, being ridiculed at school, messing up my full ride. Did I mention she was my future stepsister? I knew it couldn’t work, but I tried anyway, and failed just as spectacularly as I predicted. I should have learned my lesson then. Guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was.

Emotional demons abound in this small-town, enemies-to-lovers romance by bestselling romance author Michele Lenard.

You don’t have to forget the past to live in the present.

Ryder – They say memories last forever, which is why I’m doing my best to drown them out. If I can’t remember them, they can’t hurt, right? That’s my theory, and I’ve done such a good job at proving it that I’ve landed myself in community service. No matter, I’ll just drown this out, too. Or I would, if my pesky new supervisor wasn’t lurking over me, thwarting me at every turn. Funny thing is, as much as she infuriates me, she’s the only thing I sort of want to remember.

Hailey – When my boss dumps a charity case in my lap, I can’t help but question whether he wants me to fail. After all, my job is hard enough without having to play babysitter, and I shouldn’t have to be responsible for a guy who’s given up on life. Especially not this one, who’s method of surrender could trigger the very people our mission helps. Then I learn why he’s given up, and against my better judgment, I start to wonder if there’s a way we can help each other. If the guy he’s buried deep is one I could actually like.

Friends become lovers in this small-town romance by bestselling romance author, Michele Lenard.

What do you do when you realize the person you need most has been in front of you all along?

Tiff – Each day is more of the same. I smile and wave, playing the role of the bubbly girl next door the town expects me to be. But deep down, I’m suffocating under the weight of their perception. I don’t want to be the cheery good girl. I want to be adventurous. Reckless. Desired. When the town player moves in across the hall, I see my opportunity. I know he’s always up for a good time, and he’d have just as much incentive as me to keep things a secret.

Deacon – Relationships aren’t my thing, but I love women and they love me. That’s why I moved to this tiny ski town in Colorado. My cousin promised a veritable buffet of female tourists and assured me I’d never get bored. He was wrong though. Now that I’m the lone single guy among all our friends, I’m starting to see the appeal in having a girl. One girl. And I know the one I want. Too bad I wasn’t more discreet about my extracurricular activities, because now it’s unlikely she, or the town, will ever think I’m worthy of her.

Now I have to choose between exposing not one—but two—of my secrets, or living a lie the rest of my life.

Becca – After a bad breakup, I welcomed the opportunity for a fresh start. Unfortunately, it’s not as fresh as I intended. The two guys I rebounded with before relocating both live here, and while I’d gladly try for something more with either of them, I can’t choose…I wish I didn’t have to.

Happiness is redefined in this small-town romance by bestselling romance author, Michele Lenard.

Not all who wander are loveless.

Axel –Exotic travel, beautiful women, and adoring fans make it sound like I’m living the dream. Getting paid to race my dirt bike is a good life, no question, but after a while, it stops being fun and starts being work.  Nothing scares me more than getting burned out on the one thing that’s always brought me peace. That’s why I brought my crew to this tiny, tourist town in the deep woods of Colorado. They think we’re here to film on the local trails, but I’m hoping to scope out a place to rest. Then I see her…and it makes me think that this is a place I can call home.

Lennon – I know his type. Cocky. Carefree. Beautiful. Usually, that holds no appeal, but there’s something about his bold stare and his determined pursuit that I find irresistible. I’m not one to swoon over a man, but I’ve been known to indulge in one from time to time…When I allow myself a break. Then it’s back to grind with my true love, my restaurant, and the big plans I have in store. Unfortunately, the hotshot doesn’t get the message, and continually tries to steal my affection…as if it could be that simple. I’m not the falling in love type.

Carter – People call me privileged. They’re not wrong, but my life isn’t as easy as they make it out to be.

Paradise. Most of the time we assume it’s a place, but location isn’t everything.

Cade – Having my life mapped out for me means I don’t have much say in my future, so I figure I’ll enjoy the present. That’s why I’m squeezing in everything life has to offer before I take over the family business. My days are spent chasing an adrenaline rush on the mountain, and my nights with the endless buffet of tourists who pass through town. Perfect, right? I thought so, until Ms. PhD landed in front of me—literally—and looked at me like I’m more than just a tourist attraction. I liked that a lot, which means I need to keep my distance, so I don’t trap her in this town with me.

Cora – I’m not the kind of girl who’s easily distracted, which is what makes my interest in the town playboy so uncharacteristic. He’s never serious, and I don’t know any other way to be. Still, there’s something about his carefree, live in the moment attitude I find appealing. Freeing. It makes me want to follow his example and…have fun. He thinks he’ll be a bad influence on me, but what’s the harm in taking a page out of his playbook, just for the summer.

 This small-town, opposites attract romance will have you lusting after the guy who’s more than just a pretty face, and falling in love with his quirky hometown.

Bad Pucking Influence

Bad Pucking Influence

Author:
Series: Colorado Bulldogs, Book 2
Genre: M/M

Publicly, I'm a sports hero. Privately…

On the surface, I’ve got it all. I’m the starting goalie and Captain of the Colorado Bulldogs hockey team. I’ve got more money than I know what to do with. I can count an entire team of elite athletes as my friends. And according to the pundits, I’m an eligible bachelor.

That's the image everyone sees, but it’s just a role I play. A part dictated by my career. So, those questions I have about why I don’t crave sexual contact the way my teammates do–questions I’m afraid to ask with the world watching… I decided a long time ago it didn’t make sense to look for answers until after I retire.

Then I ran into him.

Tripp is loud, obnoxious, and full of confidence. Some people find his sass off-putting, but not me. I find it intriguing, and I admire his ability to be himself, consequences be damned. Apparently, I also admire the way he looks, since my eyes seem to linger on him longer than they should, and when he sets his sights on me…

Waiting for retirement to explore who I am seems like too big a sacrifice, so when Tripp offers to help me answer some of those questions about myself, I jump.

I'm tired of pretending to be Mr. Perfect… Tripp and his playboy antics might be just the thing I need to figure out who I am outside of hockey. The only problem is, everyone–including our mutual friends–see him as a bad pucking influence.

Thor meets Tony Hawk in this bi-awakening MM romance about a serious hockey goalie, a bratty skateboarder, a dare involving cake, and a lesson in how to use joysticks-for video games of course.

Author's Note: Bad Pucking Influence is a queer romance featuring hockey players, not a hockey book featuring lgbtq+ love. Fans of snarky playboys and gentle giants will enjoy this light-hearted, steamy yet touching love story. This spicy journey contains gay characters, same-sex romance, and themes of acceptance. It’s written as book two in the Colorado Bulldogs MM hockey series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s suggested you read book one first.

Bad Pucking Roommate

Bad Pucking Roommate

Author:
Series: Colorado Bulldogs, Book 3
Genre: M/M

Superstition. su·per·sti·tion. noun.

A belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation. An irrational abject attitude of mind toward the supernatural, nature or God.A notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary.

Athletes are notoriously superstitious. Some don’t wash their gear. Others sleep with it. I’ve even heard of a guy that peed on the field to ward off evil spirits. But as far as I’m aware, my teammate Luca is the only guy whose ritual requires a more intimate activity.

I wouldn’t know that if I hadn’t stumbled into it by accident, and even then, I wouldn’t have thought my presence had any effect. But the next day he got on the ice and had one of the most spectacular games I've seen him play.

One of his best ever.

And it gives me an idea.

At first Luca objects. He’s embarrassed by the things he has to do to play well and doesn’t want to involve me in his sordid activities. But when he realizes there’s no other option he relents, and we become roommates to make things…convenient.

It was supposed to be a means to an end. A way to prolong his career. Things don’t go according to plan.

Now I’m harboring two secrets, both of which could hurt Luca and the team, and there’s no telling how deep the consequences will run if they come out. But one thing is certain—as the veteran player, he’s the one they’ll accuse of being a bad pucking roommate.

Fans of Loving the Legend will enjoy this double bi-awakening, MM romance about two teammates who have chemistry that extends beyond the ice, an unconventional roommate agreement, and a not-safe-for-work pair of dice. Bad Pucking Roommate is a romance featuring hockey players, not a hockey book featuring a romance. It's written as book three in the Colorado Bulldogs series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it's recommended you read the other books first.
