I have moved my blog to my website!
In the city of Nis, things often aren’t what they seem.
Derwin is a bounty hunter gifted with the Oddity of superhuman strength and agility—perfect for hunting down fugitives and demons who roam the streets. One killed his boyfriend two years ago, and Derwin won’t stop until he finds out who. Police suspect it was someone he sent to prison, but he can’t sha
ke the idea that they’re missing something.
Elliot is a rentboy who’s been living on the streets since his parents disowned him. He mistrusts everyone and, given his uncontrolled ability to Read Objects and a client list that includes a major gang boss, despairs of ever having a normal life.
Derwin and Elliot meet in a storm of lust. Derwin’s Oddity is fed by the pain of others, but he only wants what’s freely given. Elliot loves pain, but needs safety and a way off the streets before he can allow it. They may be able to solve each other’s problems . . . if they can survive long enough to work together.

Short, sexy and sweet—where a little love goes a long way.
That’s the best way to describe Jackie Nacht’s stories. I was introduced to M/M Romance through my sister, Stephani, and read it for years. Then, I thought it was time to put my own stories on paper. I began writing short and sweet stories that ended with a happily ever after…and sometimes more than one, in the case of my YA Fork in the Road series, which has interactive endings.
Thinking back to my own book addiction, where there were many nights I stayed up way too late so I could read just one more chapter—yeah, right—I decided to write short romances for young adults as well as adults. Hopefully, they will give high school and college students, or working men and women something they can read during their lunch hour, in between classes or just when they want to briefly get away from the daily stresses of everyday life.

When north meets south, sparks fly.
Adrian is a student from a northern college transferring to Georgia Tech. Used to seeing snowmobiles outnumbering the cars on campus, Adrian finds himself living in a state hotter than hell and feeling completely lost in the heart of Atlanta. A chance encounter introduces him to Davis who Adrian knows is trouble, but can’t help falling for.
Davis is the picture of big man on campus and oozes with confidence, at least until he meets Adrian. Something about Adrian has Davis’s usual charm flying out of the window and everything goes from smooth to hell as Davis tries to make Adrian his own.
Between awkward dates, second-degree burns, study sessions, and snow, the two stumble their way into a relationship neither had planned. Will Davis give up the bachelor life to take a chance at a relationship with Adrian, or will he walk away from something special just to stick to his original plan?
Ten minutes until kickoff and it was like every person in the student body had showed up. Adrian was squished next to Mark and a girl wearing glitter tattoos on her cheeks. She and her friend were taking selfies, and somehow, Adrian got tugged into one.
“What’s your name?” the girl hollered.
He leaned in, yelling, “Adrian.”
“Mara.” She smiled over at him.
“Mara!” a guy called from behind them, then he landed on Adrian’s back.
“Careful, Davis!” Mara yelled.
Bending over from the weight of the guy, Adrian would have face-planted into the person in front of him if it hadn’t been for Mark grabbing his shirt. The fucking game hadn’t started, and he was about to be on the injury list. And Adrian wasn’t even playing in the game!
“Whoa, whoa, whoa.” The guy on his back grabbed him and wrapped an arm around Adrian’s chest.
The person in front of him turned with a scowl on his face before he smirked at the man behind him and raised his hand. “Davis!”
Hands clapped over his head, and the damn bull in the china shop behind him still had his arm around Adrian.
The two chatted above him, and Adrian glanced over at Mark who was rolling his eyes. “That’s Davis.”
Oh yeah, because that explained everything. It’s Davis so it’s natural to start chatting it up with Adrian snuggled right in. Boundaries, people, boundaries. Apparently, tackle-boy Davis seemed to know everyone since people all around shouted his name. Adrian felt Davis’s deep chuckle and wondered why the hell he was still being held by him.
Adrian turned and glanced over his shoulder, then kind of wished he hadn’t. Davis was laughing while talking to the guy Adrian almost fell into before. Davis was hot… like hotter than Atlanta. Black hair and a five o’clock shadow around a strong jaw. Built enough to belong on the football field and damn, and he had light ice-blue eyes. Adrian had an urge to reach out and touch Davis’s face to make sure he was fucking real. The only thing that detracted from the model-perfect looks was a small scar on his bottom lip, which Adrian thought was sexy as hell. The white line bisected plump full lips, which made Adrian want to kiss it. And he shouldn’t be thinking that.
With a small twist of his arm, Adrian was free of Davis. He glanced back at him.
“Don’t trample the newb, Davis,” Luke hollered from down the row.
Davis’s blue eyes glinted in the noonday sun, and a crooked smile appeared on his face. Adrian felt like prey in the presence of a predator, trapped by a sea of fifty-five thousand people.
Title: Soaring Hearts
Author: A. L. Boyd
Release Date: September 25th 2016
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
Will hearts soar when pigs fly?
Alex’s job working for his family-owned radio station once took him all over the city reporting on major events—until the accident. His scars, both physical and emotional, cause him to withdraw into a self-imposed, semi-reclusive lifestyle. When his dad requests that he go to the world’s largest hot air balloon festival, he has to find the courage to break his isolation. Now he needs to find the courage to trust and love again.
Jeff had already been planning a move to Albuquerque when he lost his home, parents, and dog to a wildfire in California. To begin his new life, he agrees to help his sister and brother-in-law with their balloon at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Now he’s seen pigs fly and bees kissing, but will he find the love he’s been searching for?
The morning glow ended once the skies lightened up, and the pilots prepared for the mass ascension. He moved back to the outer edges of the field to get a better view and to reduce the noise levels on his sound bites. Well that’s what he said when people asked, but really, he needed to get out of the crowds before they started staring again. It was easier in the daylight to deal with people one on one instead of in the big crowds. Invariably, someone’s kid would pipe up and say something about the large scars running down his neck.
He walked through one of the crew parking areas, looking for participants to interview, when a blue Chevy truck with California plates pulled into a parking site. Great time to get an out-of-stater’s perspective on the Fiesta. It would make his family happy that he was willing to talk to strangers again, even though the acid in his stomach rose.
Alex hesitated when the tall, muscular man got out of the truck and walked to the back to pull out some camp chairs. The early morning light bounced off the guy’s sun-bleached brown hair as he set them up along with a small camp table. Alex took in the view of the well-fitting jeans hugging the perfect ass. Mr. California stood over six feet tall and looked like he worked out regularly. Alex could only hope that he wasn’t some homophobic jerk.
A chuckle escaped him when the man’s attention was drawn to his reflection in the tinted truck window. He ran a hand through his short curly hair, then reached into the truck for a ball cap to pull over his head. Then he grabbed a thermos and a travel mug.
Alex struggled to calm the rising panic racing through him as he prepared to approach. He’d dreamed of being a TV news anchor, but after his accident, he’d given up that dream to work for his family’s radio station. He was used to interviewing all sorts of people, famous or not, for the radio station. He loved meeting new people, but this gorgeous man before him was throwing him off his game. At least with the people who came into the radio station, he felt safe and didn’t need to worry about how they would react to his scars.
Alex waited until the man sat down and began to enjoy the show, before approaching from behind. Controlling the situation so that he wouldn’t have to expose his scars was the only way he could handle talking to the stranger. His insides burned and his breakfast threatened to come back up, but he needed this. He needed to get back into the game so he could continue his career as a broadcaster.

Title: Choosing Home
Author: Alexa Milne
Series: The Call of Home #1
Release Day: July 12th 2016
Genre: MM Contemporary Romance
You can never escape from yourself.
Zac McKenzie is an exprofessional footballer with a secret he gave up his career to protect. Several years ago, he fled to his home in the North East of Scotland to avoid being outed as gay. Now, he owns a successful hotel and restaurant, but is it time to finally come out into the open?
Seth Pritchard feels he is damaged goods. He comes to Scotland to escape memories of the accident that left him injured, his bullying stepbrothers and a life of lies.
For their whole lives, Zac and Seth have denied who they truly are to themselves as well as to others. When they meet, each man is forced to confront his fears and tear them down one by one.
Reader advisory: Dubious consent. Recollections of physical abuse, emotional/mental abuse, torture and drug abuse. Profanity.
“So what did you do before coming here, then?” Seth drank the excellent coffee and stretched his knee again to stop it from stiffening.
“I played professional football.”
“Oh, should I know you? I’ve always been more of a rugby fan, I’m afraid.” He scrutinized his landlord’s face. His stepbrothers would have had football on the TV twentyfourseven, so he’d been exposed to lots of games over the years.
“I retired six years ago with a back injury, but I was captain of Scotland and Glasgow Rovers. I guess I was well known at the time.”
Realization hit Seth between the eyes. “Hang on a minute—Magic McKenzie, that’s you, isn’t it? Didn’t you score the winning goal for Trentino when they beat Manchester United in the Champions’ League?”
Zac’s cheeks flushed red and he grinned. “Yeah, that was me—stupid nickname.” Seth noticed the way the skin around Zac’s eyes crinkled when he smiled and, oh my, his smile lit up a room.
Zac rose from the sofa and picked up the plates. “I’d better be on my way before Mina sends out a search party. No doubt she has a few jobs for me to do before tonight’s service. We’re nearly full, but can fit you in if you want to eat with us, or I’ll get someone to bring something over for you until you get organized.”
“Is Mina your wife?” Fuck. Idiot, where did that question come from?
There was the smile again. “Mina, good God, no. She’d eat me alive and spit me out. No, her husband plays in goal for Inverness Cally Thistle. We met when we both played in Italy. No, me… I’m not the marrying kind, not anymore.”
Seth watched Zac close the door then leaned back in his chair. So much for coming to the back of beyond to escape his problems. It looked like he might simply have found a whole lot more.
