Jude might have met Mr. Forever, but first he has to clear his name of murder. All Alone in a Sea of Romance by B.G. Thomas, available from Dreamspinner Press.
I’m Jude Parks, writer of gay romances. Even though I’m good at what I do, the irony is that I haven’t exactly been lucky in love. My friend Jeannie says it’s because I settle for Mr. Right Now instead of holding out for Mr. Forever. I say I’d rather regret what I have done than what I haven’t.
I only came to Romantic Voyages, the biggest romance convention in the country, for business. Yet in no time I got mixed up with a gorgeous cover model, weeping artists, drag queens, and crazy housewives—and became the prime suspect in a murder investigation. Well, they say any press is good press.
Maybe I should’ve stayed home. But then I never would’ve met Tommy Smith, the craziest, most outrageous, silly, sexy man I’ve ever known—a man who makes me wonder if it may be worth holding out for Mr. Forever. A man who might turn my rotten luck around. But only if we survive the weekend and I clear my name….

Jaymes and Drue must band together if they want to survive the wilderness and claim their rights as human beings. Human After All by Connie Bailey, available from Dreamspinner Press.
In the future, corporations buy the life contracts of infants and raise them for specific careers. Jaymes, aka The Prince, is Erotic Bioware, Thoroughbred Class, trained to seduce and give pleasure in the highest tiers of society. But his latest client involves him in a political assassination, and Jaymes must flee the comforts of the city for the barbaric outlands.
With Drue the Fox, Bioware, Exotic Class, Jaymes struggles through the last wilderness on his world in his quest to return to civilization and his pampered life. The ruthless corporate mercenary on their trail should make them want to work together—but Jaymes and Drue are diametrically opposed in personality, class, and ideology and can’t stop bickering about Bioware inequality.
Eventually, Jaymes’s dislike of Drue evolves into something else as Jaymes wakes up to the reality of his place in society and admits that Drue is right. It will take great courage, a band of ex-military outcasts, and a sympathetic politician to clear Jaymes’s name and bring about lasting changes for all Bioware. Only then can he and Drue have a life together with all the rights a human deserves.

When human couple Javier and Robin have a relationship-threatening disagreement about raising a family, the benevolent Felan Council dispatches newly trained Rilke to help them sort it out. But the Felan Council doesn’t know Rilke has problems of her own.
Somehow Rilke has developed a psychic bond to Gimle, the founder of the bond on which the Felan culture is based. Thousands of years ago, he bonded with a human man named Isa. Now Rilke sees their passionate love story firsthand through her dreams—but the dreams differ greatly from the Felan teachings. Convinced she must be crazy, Rilke flounders in her quest to help Javier and Robin communicate and struggles to find the confidence to tell the Felan Council what she’s learned.

A child sick with cancer brings Ken and Patrick together, but new beginnings are not as easy as anyone would like. Love Comes Silently by Andrew Grey, available from Dreamspinner Press.
Caring for a loved one with cancer is tough. Doing it alone is overwhelming—especially when that loved one is a child. But ever since Ken Brighton’s partner left him, Ken has spent his days at the hospital with his daughter, Hanna, hoping for a miracle. Maybe the mysterious care packages that appear for Hanna don’t qualify, but they bring a spark of hope into his and Hanna’s tired life—and so does Ken’s neighbor, former singer Patrick Flaherty.
For two years Patrick hasn’t been able to focus on anything but the life he should have had. An injury robbed him of his voice, and the idea of introducing himself to new people intimidates him. But over the past months, he’s watched as his neighbor nursed his sick child, and once he meets Ken, Patrick starts to crave a life with him—a life he isn’t sure he can have.
Ken doesn’t realize he’s fallen in love until the doctors send Hanna home, saying there’s nothing more they can do: Hanna will either recover or succumb. Ken’s heart is set on a new beginning—with both Patrick and Hanna. But Patrick’s silence leaves Ken wondering what Patrick wants.

Can Dex let go of his own painful past to give Kane the future they both deserve? Dex in Blue by Amy Lane, available from Dreamspinner Press.
Ten years ago David Worral had plans to go to college and the potential for a beautiful future in front of him. One tragic accident later, he fled to California and reinvented himself as Dex, top porn model of Johnnies.
Dex’s life is a tangled mess now, but the guys he works with only see the man who makes them believe even porn stars can lead normal lives. When Kane, one of Dex’s coworkers, gets kicked out of his house, the least Dex can do is give him a place to stay. Kane may be a hyperactive muscle-bound psycho, but he’s also a really nice guy. What could be the harm?
Except nothing is simple—not sex, not love, and not the goofy kid with the big dick and bigger heart who moves his life into Dex’s guest room. When they start negotiating fractured pasts and broken friends, Dex wonders if Kane’s honest nature can untangle the sadness that stalled his once-promising future. With Kane by his side, Dex just might be able to reclaim the boy he once was—and if he can do that, he can give Kane the home and the family he deserves.
