Summary

Ainslon O’Neil is co-owner of Turn the Page, the most popular children’s and comic bookstore in Garriety. Her life revolves around her business and family. Romance is far from her mind, until one day Lauren Millán walks into her store and commissions Ainslon to find a first edition of Mary Poppins. Ainslon can’t stop thinking about Lauren and, as fate would have it, the two seem to frequently run into each other. The one rule Ainslon made for herself was never to mix business with pleasure. The two agree to be friends. But, Ainslon finds she yearns for more with Lauren. Should Ainslon stick to the rules? Or follow her heart?
 
Lauren Millán, owner of the successful candy store, C and C, is content with running her business and spending time with family and friends. While Lauren’s not averse to finding Ms. Right, she’s not searching for her either. When she walks into Turn the Page, a pair of green eyes and an Irish accent ambushes her heart. Yet, as much as she would like to pursue more than a friendship with Ainslon, their ten-year age difference gives her pause. Then there’s Ainslon’s promise never to mix business with pleasure.
 
Welcome back to Garriety, where the food is plentiful, the people are always willing to lend an ear, and meeting the love of your life is just around the corner. Join Ainslon and Lauren, along with the characters from Add Romance and Mix and Blueprint for Romance, while they navigate the ups and downs of falling in love.

    NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK! Handsome cowboy, meet ravishing ballet dancer. 
    Hunky cowboy Clyde Walker grew up on a horse ranch working side by side with the rough and tough men that ran the place. When Clyde moved east for grad school, he didn't expect to find romance with the type of guy more comfortable in tights and ballet slippers than in jeans and workboots. 
     
    Bonaventure “Bonnie” Rinaldi is jaded to pretty boys. However, as a favor to his best friend during an event at a snotty country club, the stunning Bonaventure becomes Clyde’s guide and dinner companion. Bonaventure discovers that chaperoning the smoldering stranger through the event is a nicer duty than most – Clyde is genuine, magnetic, refreshing. 
     
    Sparks fly, passions ignite. Except Clyde is Boston bound, and Bonnie’s the premier danseur with the Manhattan Contemporary Ballet Company. Twenty-four amazing hours together and endless weeks of a long-distance relationship can’t form a basis for life-changing decisions. Or can they? To make this work, they'd have to be Bonnie and Clyde... 
     
    Bonaventure and Clyde is a gay romance with happy ending, no cliff hangers, and explicit material.

    With ingenuity and luck, a wilderness mishap turns into a romantic adventure where love has room to bloom! 
    NOW ON AUDIO. Though he lives as an openly gay man in DC, Nick decides to revert to his closeted alter ego when he returns home to Colorado. Someday he’d come out to his family – in six months, maybe. Or six years. Now he steels himself to survive a back-country camping and hunting trip with his brother and friends. But Nick forgets he isn’t out East anymore when he kisses his hot skiing instructor just as his brother arrives! If the awkward silence on the drive up is bad, the constant stream of gay jokes by his brother’s friends is even worse. 
    Clay likes his skiing student a lot – enough to exchange phone numbers despite his sulking brother and the pile of hunting gear in the back of their truck. Nick is smart and funny and incredibly cute. Clay texts to invite him to dinner, only to find Nick is still out on the mountain and at the mercy of the elements. When a winter storm threatens, Clay resolves to rescue Nick personally. He thinks Nick is “the one” – but only if their new relationship survives the close quarters of a cozy snow cave. 
    BODY HEAT is a contemporary gay romance with a happy ending.
