Tempted by Danger by Endiya Carter

Rule #1
‘No Fraternizing’

Turn Me Out by BriAnn Danae

Physical touch. 

I didn’t know how or when that became my love language, but it was. Especially when warm kisses and hugs that felt like home turned into core-quivering orgasms. I craved his caress like a feen and wasn’t ashamed to admit it. 

Thanks to Phallon and his generosity in helping me expand my sexual experiences, I was now turned out in the best way possible.  


No Longer Afraid by Christina C Jones


A name – a definition – that was never supposed to be triumph, but a condemnation. A reminder of a certain place in the world – of a responsibility to the other living beings in the ecosystem.

As second-in-command of the Predators MC, Tatiana Tate is well-versed in both the expectations and reality of sustaining her way of life. In the wake of a tragedy that shook the whole organization, she’s had no issues stepping into power beside her lifelong friend – her brother. But even in the midst of their efforts to rebuild, the need for revenge against an unknown hunter looms in the shadows.

Good thing the shadows are more than familiar to Onyx – he thrives there on the fringes, with no place to truly call home. Orphaned by cruel decisions made before he was born, he’s the perfect secret weapon in the club’s struggle against an unidentified foe with a mostly ambiguous agenda.

They want the Predators wiped out.

That much is clear.

But nobody with Predator ink goes down without a fight.

Even the strongest prey isn’t immune to a determined predator.

But wise prey studies, until they are no longer afraid.


Mister Librarian by B. Love

Honey Williams doesn’t trust men. Between her father and last lover, a part of her struggles with resenting the entire species. She’s spent the past six months hidden in the safety of her parents’ home hoping her kind heart will never be the cause of pain and misfortune again. That seems possible until a cranky client causes chaos… which leads to her meeting Mr. Librarian.

A natural protector, Kahlil Roberts feels like less of a man if he can’t serve those in need. When he finds the honey complexioned beauty sobbing in his library, there’s no question of if he should help her or not. What Kahlil doesn’t expect is for her presence to help him as well. For years, Kahlil has struggled with feeling guilt over not being able to save the person who needed him most. Finally, he believes he has a chance to make things right.

While both Honey and Kahlil have voids the other can fill, there are also reservations and past fears keeping them apart. As easy as their connection was, it proves to be a bit more difficult to keep their secrets and skeletons from ripping them apart. Throughout their journey for one another’s hearts, an enemy from Kahlil’s past threatens their lives. Will Mr. Librarian be able to save Honey again, or will she become another person he fails when they need him most?
