When a wager goes wrong … Painfully shy Jane Huxley is the furthest thing from a diamond of the first water. Bookish, bespectacled, and, well, plain, she never expected to befriend a dissolute charmer like Colin Lacey, much less agree to help him retrieve a lost family heirloom. Fortunately, he is nothing like his cold, rigid older brother. Unfortunately, he is not above deception if it means winning a wager. And that puts Jane in a most precarious position. A formidable duke will marry a plain Jane … For Harrison Lacey, the Duke of Blackmore, protecting his family honor is not a choice, it is a necessity. So, when his cad of a brother humiliates the unwitting Lady Jane, Harrison must make it right, even if it means marrying the chit himself. And a marriage of convenience will become so much more … Her reputation hanging by a thread, Jane agrees to wed the arrogant Duke of Blackmore, although she’s convinced it will result in frostbite. Only after lingering glances lead to devastating kisses does she begin to suspect the truth: Perhaps—just perhaps—her duke is not as cold as he appears.

When his boyfriend of two years kicks him out because he just can’t get pregnant, Adrian is heartbroken. Coming from a broken home, all he’s ever wanted was to start a family of his own. But now it’s starting to look like that’s never going to happen. Worse yet, he has to move in with his brother to keep from living on the street, and the prevalent bias against men with the ability to carry children keeps him from finding a job of his own. He’s about ready to give up hope when he finds a job offer in the newspaper searching for someone to produce an heir for a rich dragon shifter. Having a baby with a stranger, even if he’s enigmatic and hot as hell, is not Adrian’s definition of happiness, but he figures he’s got nothing left to lose. Dragon shifter Tyrel has no interest in mating, but if he doesn’t become a parent by the age he’s thirty, his family’s considerable wealth will fall to his brother. To prevent that from happening, he plays along when his mother invites several omegas to their mansion for him to pick a partner, even though he believes all humans to be fools. His opinion on this only changes when he meets Adrian and he hears fate whisper in his ear. But Adrian has trouble conceiving, and even when he does, carrying a dragon’s child comes with its own set of complications.

Their relationship might be fake, but their love is real. Roger likes to play, but he also likes to play it safe. He has two rules—don’t get pregnant and don’t give your heart away. He’s been through too much shit to trust any guy to treat him right and, besides, he’s too busy. A trip to Canada to see your favorite hockey team in action doesn’t happen, unless you work for it. And that’s just one of the many things on Roger’s bucket list. He has his life all planned out, and relationships have no place in it. Zed used to believe fated mates only existed in fairy tales, so when his overbearing mother arranges a mating for him, he doesn’t mind. One dragon’s as good as another, and these things have a long tradition in dragon culture. To sweeten the pot, his show-biz icon parents have offered to help his band hit the big time in exchange for his vows. Everything looks good until Zed runs into Roger one night after a show—and the attraction between them is undeniable. Could the stories of fated mates actually be true? If so, he needs to find a way out of his arranged mating and a way to keep Roger around long enough to give them a shot. In his desperation, the only solution Zed can think of is to hire Roger to play his boyfriend so he can convince his mother that he’s found his true mate. Because that couldn’t possibly go wrong.

An unbonded omega in his mid-thirties, he's long since given up hope that he'll meet a compatible alpha, let alone his destined mate. He's fulfilled by his career, his poetry, his cat, and his friends. When Jason Sabel, a much younger alpha, imprints on Vale in a shocking and public way, longings are ignited that can't be ignored. Fighting their strong sexual urges, Jason and Vale must agree to contract with each other before they can consummate their passion.

He isn't sure it's worth it. But Jason isn't giving up his destined mate without a fight. This is a stand alone gay romance novel, 118,000 words, with a strong HFN ending, as well as a well-crafted, non-shifter omegaverse, with alphas, betas, omegas, male pregnancy, heat, and knotting.
