Boss in the Bedsheets by Kate Canterbary

Mr. Santillian. Despite the fact I’m currently living out of your guest room and sleeping with you most nights, I am writing to announce my resignation effective two weeks from today.

Fallow by Jordan L. Hawk

Between the threat of a world-ending invasion from the Outside and unwelcome revelations about his own nature, Percival Endicott Whyborne is under a great deal of strain. His husband, Griffin Flaherty, wants to help—but how can he, when Whyborne won’t tell him what’s wrong?

When a man from Griffin’s past murders a sorcerer, the situation grows even more dire. Once a simple farmer from Griffin’s hometown of Fallow, the assassin now bears a terrifying magical corruption, one whose nature even Whyborne can’t explain.

To keep Griffin’s estranged mother safe, they must travel to a dying town in Kansas. But as drought withers the crops of Fallow, a sinister cult sinks its roots deep into the arid soil. And if the cult’s foul harvest isn’t stopped in time, Fallow will be only the first city to fall.

Equilibrium by Joel Abernathy

Equilibrium by Joel Abernathy

Transforming before the harvest moon was once my biggest concern, but if the Family has their way, none of us will survive that long. Fighting back means resolving the war within, but with my memories intact, I’m no closer to choosing between the twins than I was.

Domination… Deceit… Decadence. They’re all just part of life at the Lodge. Life as the hybrid Prince.

Time is running out, and my divided soul is the only thing standing between the pack I love and the cosmic battle that’s coming to an end, once and for all.
