It was supposed to be a fun-filled night at the arena, cheering on the Harrison Hawks, ogling the blond Acadian god/goalie in the crease, and maybe, if he was really lucky, catching an airborne puck with his hands and not his face.
Unfortunately for Daryl Hamilton, his first minor league ice hockey game ends with him catching something with his face, but it’s not a puck. It’s the fist of his dream goalie, Ryan Amirault. But while his nose may not be thankful for the badly timed autograph request, Daryl can’t say that the rest of him isn’t pleased with how things are turning out.
Not only is Ryan turning himself inside out to make things right with Daryl, the spark of attraction between the two men is slowly blazing up into a roaring inferno. The only problem – aside from two black eyes – is that Ryan isn’t out, there’s a viral video of the nose-crunching encounter, and a rather curious sports reporter is snooping around the daycare center where Daryl works. If their new love can survive all that, it will survive anything.More info →
The south side of Colchester has a reputation: if it’s illegal and makes you feel good, you can find it here. The same can be said about Gems, the scandalous little secret that hides deep in the heart of that gritty urban maze. Gems is the hottest gay bordello to be found east of the Mississippi. Its clientele includes some of the most affluent men in the world; bored men with money to burn and certain elite tastes. There is no price tag too high, no scruple too low, no fantasy that cannot be lived once you’re through the door at Gems. As long as your money is good, there are only two rules that need to be followed:
One is never touch the beautiful jewels until your credit card has cleared.
Two is never to fall in love with the clients or the precious gems.
Tonight, one of those rules is about to be broken…

With Gems now under new management, change is certain to be coming. As the men grapple with the upheaval, legalities, and updated rules, certain things never change: the clientele, the soft beep of a credit card being scanned, and the beauty that the men of Gems are known for.
When Garnet is employed to escort a client to a charity fundraiser, he catches the eye of Colchester Colts star quarterback Sterling Vesco, and is instantly attracted to the tall, dark, handsome, and incredibly aloof footballer.
Try as he may, Sterling can’t ignore the captivating ginger on the arm of another man. A chance encounter in the men’s room leads Garnet and Sterling into a passionate but hidden affair that just might end up ruining a career or ending a life.
Or perhaps both…

Gems has come a long way under its new management. The modernized business is now one of the Midwest’s most popular and elite gay escort services, and the men of Gems some of the most sought-after escorts in the eastern United States. Despite the glamour, cash, and prestige, it can be a lonely life when all you are is a pretty ornament on someone’s arm…
Diamond has lived a life that has forged him into a man as tough as the gem he’s named after. Beautiful and in command, his looks are blinding, his heart padlocked and safely tucked away in a glittery cold lockbox.
Amber has loved Diamond from afar for ages now, but the shy young man is warm, golden honey while the man he loves is cold, clear ice. There’s no way possible for a tender, bouncy puppy to win the heart of a jaded junkyard dog without being bitten …is there?
(Diamond and Amber’s story picks up six months after the end of Garnet.)More info →
It started as toddlers covered in glitter and became years of friendship. The story of Cody and Regen, and how the best things in life are worth waiting for.
Cody first met Regen when they were three and covered in glitter after a Christmas decoration project went disastrously wrong. After bonding over the taste of glue, and eating all the chocolate on the tree, the two became best friends. Living in a small Canadian town outside of Calgary, they grew up together, went to the same school, played on the Chipmunks peewee hockey team, and shared a passion for both the Calgary Cobras and chocolate. While Cody stayed at home, went to a local college, and became a teacher, Regen was on a very different path.
Regen and Cody. Their names had become inseparable over the years, just as they had. Through good times and bad, the two boys were thick as thieves and close as brothers. When the boys became men, life tried its best to pry them apart, sending Regen to LA to play professional hockey while Cody remained in Canada and pursued his dream of becoming a teacher. Even with thousands of miles between them, Regen and Cody remained best friends.
Cody is in love with his best friend, and Regen is in love with hockey, and it seems that it will take the magic of Christmas to bring the waiting to an end.More info →
