Balancing Act - Coming August 3 from Andrew Grey

Balancing Act is the follow up to Heavy Lifting, and the second title in the Jocks and Geeks series.  It releases August 3 and is inspired by the fact that I'm very much a geek at heart.  I think I always was, so it does my heart good to see these boys getting their happy ever after.  

Freelance computer genius Trent Marcus took a web development job he wishes he hadn’t, and now he’s in a world of hurt. With his safety threatened, he needs someone who can protect him from his client, who responds to “no” with threats and intimidation.

Personal trainer and silver fox Collin Fitzpatrick gave part of his leg for his country, and now his ex is selling his home, so he needs a place to live quickly. He hears from mutual friends that Trent has a room he can use and needs Collin’s help. Neither Trent nor Collin is looking for a relationship, but attraction ignites for Trent, and it’s returned, to Trent’s surprise.

The last thing Collin expects is for his protective instincts to blossom into something much more. Trent’s care and genuineness combine to heal the heart his ex left shattered. As the task of keeping Trent safe becomes more paramount, so does the realization that failing could cost both of them everything.

TRENT MARKUS glanced over his shoulder for the tenth time in the last few minutes. His heart pounded in his ears as he walked faster, trying to get to his friend’s apartment. Footsteps behind him made Trent jump and sweat break out on the back of his neck, and it took all his willpower not to break into a run. Not that it would do any good, because in these shoes, he wasn’t going anywhere. He loved them, but they were a little too small. It wasn’t enough to stop him—it just meant that if he wanted all his toes, he needed to walk. Though right about now, he might give up a toe or two to save his stupid neck.

He turned again and slowed down. It was only a man and a woman walking down the sidewalk. They were even holding hands and stuff. As he reached Marti’s apartment, he headed up the walk and reached the door just as his phone chimed. He pulled it out, then nearly dropped it between his fingers.

I’m still waiting. I already paid, and I expect what you promised me. You know what will happen if you don’t deliver.

The message was followed by a gif of an exploding bomb.

Trent rang the bell and put his phone back in his pocket. He had no idea what he was going to do, but he knew there was no way he could deliver what Soren wanted. Why in the hell had he gotten involved with a guy like that? He should have known the guy was bad by the money he offered, and now Soren was going to pull Trent and his hopes for the future of his business right down the toilet before it really had a chance to start.

He rang the bell again, glancing from side to side, shifting his weight and hating that he was standing under the light. It made him feel exposed and even more vulnerable. The hair on the back of his neck stood on end, as though someone were watching him. It was probably only his imagination, which had been running wild a lot lately with Milwaukee’s version of the son of the Godfather after him. Okay, maybe that was exaggerating, but only a little. Soren Severson wasn’t Italian, but that didn’t seem to be an impediment to his nastiness.

He rang once more, and this time the door buzzed. Trent pulled it open, hurried inside, and waited for it to click locked behind him before walking down the hall to the rear first-floor apartment of what had once been a block of stunning Victorian-era apartments. He knocked on the door, and Marti opened it. Trent raced in and stood, tense as hell, in the foyer. “I’m sorry for calling and everything, but I don’t know what to do.”

“Well, sit down,” Marti said. “You’re as jumpy as a cat. What’s going on?” He went to the tiny kitchen and returned with a couple beers, then motioned to the sofa. Marti sat and opened a beer, handing Trent the other one, and put his feet up on the old, scarred coffee table.

“You know I’m trying to get this business off the ground. Downsizing sucks, and I tried to get another job, but no one is hiring right now. So I thought that lots of people have websites, but they can’t keep them updated and the software current. I thought I’d start a web development and maintenance service. People would pay a flat rate per month, and I would support their website. I’ve already got about ten clients. I figured I could also do web design, photography work… all of that. I put up my own website and advertised on Facebook and stuff.” Trent took a sip of beer and set the bottle on the table. He thought he was going to throw it right back up.

Two Guardians meant for war are now given the permission to love. After the last battle had been fought, and any threats have been eliminated, the watcher decrees that the guardians should go forth and live as they would choose. A life of freedom and happiness. But without a mate some of them have no idea how to accomplish this.

Aasim helped Jashik through the mending of his broken wing and his feelings for the injured gargoyle grew during the time they spent together. Aasim does not trust easily, but he has complete faith in Jashik, so when they’re told they should go and enjoy any happiness they can, he’s eager, but also a little hesitant as they decide to begin a life together. Neither of them has a mate, so the prospect of not being alone for eternity is very appealing to him, but still, he’s afraid to open his heart to the other gargoyle.

They were promised a lifetime of peace, but the arrival of an old forgotten foe brings all the gargoyles together to fight against a force that is strong enough to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard for. Love or duty, now they’ll all need to choose.

(All three books in The Stone Series center around gargoyles who have been brought to life to serve as guardians. Their lives of service change when they are given the opportunity to love. Each book can be read as a standalone but best read in order.)

Now Available for Preorder: Never Underestimate an Omega -- Eden Winters

In the past, I've written bear shifters, fox shifters, possum shifters, and even elk shifters. It's been a while, though, since I've written wolf shifters. Now I have a brand-new book for you: Never Underestimate an Omega. It's currently available for preorder at Amazon, releasing August 1. So, if you're in the mood for some good, old-fashioned werewolf loving, look no further! 

An alpha leader must have an alpha mate, but Gray wants only one man.

And that man is an omega.

Wolf shifter Gray Collins returns to his home pack to avenge his father’s murder, never expecting to take on the role of leader. Gray is a loner with no desire to tackle the politics of being Pack Alpha. Worse yet, he falls for the man he’s come to depend on—omega Logan Richardson.

According to pack lore, omegas are inferior, nothing more than lowly servants. Or are they? Logan is far too cunning, fierce, and bold to be a low-ranking wolf. While he keeps his head down in public, when they’re alone, Logan stands toe-to-toe with Gray like no one else dares. Mutual respect grows into friendship, friendship into a white-hot desire neither can fight.

Despite the law and the odds, the two wolves form a tentative bond. Together they lead the pack through strife and threats, all while keeping a secret—a secret that could get them both killed, and plunge the pack back into the savage dark ages.

The entire Lycan world is on the brink of a hard-won lesson: Never underestimate the relentless force of an omega.

They start their trip and even though they think they’ve planned for every emergency, they can’t control what Mother Nature has in store for them.

When the car in front of them spins out in the newly fallen snow, they stop to help and soon find out that Caden’s not as alone in this world as he had originally thought. A few more planned surprises make for a special weekend for these hard-working guys who really deserve a weekend getaway. #vacationromance #mmromance #loveislove #truelove
