The location’s not quite as accessible as it was supposed to be, but there’s a ramp down an alley and a door his wheelchair fits through, so he’s definitely seen worse. Also, there’s a no dating rule, but since Paul has a bad habit of rushing into things and steamrolling every obstacle in his path, that’s not such a bad thing.
Then he meets Ally Jennings. And all bets are off.
Ally loves the workshop, even if she feels like the least experienced person in the room. Meeting Paul is the icing on the cake. When he looks at her, she feels like he gets her, and that’s…never happened before.
He’s dominant, she’s submissive, and everything from kissing to talking about their families feels perfect. But when Paul pushes for commitment, Ally hesitates, and each of them feels betrayed.
They’ve only known each other for two weeks. They should probably just write the whole thing off and go their separate ways, except they can’t stop thinking about each other. Falling in love was the easy part. Building a relationship takes a hell of a lot of work.
Dillon Aldham loves being on his computer. He’s a little bit awkward and most of his relationships have been online. When a pipe explodes in his apartment, he holes up in the local bar for a few days waiting for repairs to be done. He figures the hot redheaded bartender is just being polite, but every now and then he thinks they might have a spark. (And Gage's tone of command is pretty... evocative.)
Gage Maher isn't in the closet, he's just private. At least, he's private until he meets Dillon. But Dillon, and his fun mix of awkward and fearless, really gets under his skin. Between an inheritance he never asked for, the feud that comes along with it, and New Halliday's first gay wedding, Gage could use a little fun.
Can a computer geek and a small town bartender really hit it off? Is a love for kink, a healthy fear of gossip, and a huge helping of sexual chemistry enough to build a life on?
When the boyfriends finally decide to get married, they ask Will to be their best man. Makes sense in theory. But getting through the ceremony and the reception without accidentally forgetting himself and doing something not-very-best-man-like? Yeah, that might be a problem.
Molly Evans is back in California for good, but instead of feeling settled, she’s restless. She’s trying to finish writing a book, trying to decide what to do with it, and oh yeah, she should probably find a more permanent place to live than someone’s couch.
And then, into the weird chaos of not knowing what the future holds, she gets a text. From Will.
Sure, she’ll go to the wedding. Keeping Will on a leash sounds like fun. But god, Will in a suit? Molly doesn’t know how she’s gonna keep her own hands off him, let alone keep him from mauling the boyfriends. Who's going to keep Molly on good behavior?
Warnings: The Boyfriends Tie the Knot may inspire a powerful intimacy kink. Wedding cake does not contain nuts.
Singer and Lisa Thurman did everything right for their entire childhood. Their mother wanted a perfect life, and they knew how to fit that vision.
Then they grew up. Singer came out of the closet and Lisa joined a cult.
Singer and his partner are adopting a son. Unfortunately, all that practice being the perfect child didn't prepare Singer to be a merely adequate father. Lisa's just trying to get through the day. After three years in a cult, it’s almost impossible to leave her bedroom, so redemption is going to have to wait.
What does it mean to be a family?
When their mother shows up and attempts to reclaim the illusion of her perfect family, old lives clash with new ones.
Recovering from perfection is messy, complicated, and fraught, but the riotous clan that rises from the ashes is full of joy—and the best kind of trouble.
A groundbreaking, honest, and provocative novel, Kith and Kin is contemporary family drama that grafts an entirely new species of family tree.
Family is what you make of it.

Sometimes all it takes is a new angle on an old idea to change everything you thought you wanted. Hugh Reynolds holds the world at arm's length. He lives alone, works alone, and he thinks he's as happy as he'll ever be. But Will gets under his skin and once he's gone, Hugh realizes he doesn’t want to go it alone forever.
Sometimes all it takes is a random encounter to open your mind (and your heart). Truman Jennings hits on a cute guy at a conference and he’s smitten by the end of their first date. Hugh's not the kindest or the easiest boyfriend Truman's ever had, but he brings one thing to their relationship that no one else could: kinky, adventurous, sweetly submissive Will.
