When Denver’s long-term partner breaks up with him, he flees his life, his career, and his bright future as one of the country’s leading trauma surgeons. Ditching everything but his dog, Denver returns to the quiet town of Cooper’s Ridge and his parents’ ranch.
Leaving twelve years earlier, Denver knew he would never be accepted as a gay man in an unaccepting town. So, when he meets Kes—an old school friend—in the bar he owns, he is shocked to find him in an openly gay relationship. Something he never thought would happen here.
What surprises him even more is the instant, mutual attraction the three men have. Accepting a job in Kes’ bar, they dance around each other, wanting them but not believing he would ever fit in with a couple so obviously in love. But, they want him. And they are not prepared to let him go.
Denver takes a risk and accepts their offer of a night out, finding a side of himself he never knew existed. Not trusting himself to be enough for the two men, the desire blooming in him is unprecedented and he can’t deny it: he wants them as much.
He finds his life falling into place, all because of two men. Is it possible he found his forever in a place he never expected it?
My head is in a spin, I can’t get Denver out of it. His scent, as he sat next to me, was intoxicating: the pure man essence made my mouth water. But the reaction from him with every touch, not just from me but from East, too, has had my dick hard all afternoon. I’m prepping some food for tonight, keeping it simple with some homemade pizza and a few beers that are already in the fridge.
East will be home soon, Ellie won’t keep him there too long. She simply likes to spend an hour or so, a couple of times during the week, then spend time together at the weekend; I’ve got used to it now but it was a shock at first. I was surprised when East mentioned her this afternoon but Denver didn’t pick up on it, or at least he didn’t question it. Maybe he knows, his parents and brother will have filled him in on all the town news when he got back here. And Cal definitely knows.
The door opens and I turn to see East walk through, he looks tired but his smile brightens up his face as he sees me.
“Everything okay?” I ask as I wipe my hands on a towel and walk towards him. I lean in and capture his lips with mine.
“Yeah, Ellie is good. She’s got a school dance this Friday and wanted to show me her outfit. She’s growing up way too fast.” East chuckles. “I’m gonna grab a shower then I’ll come and help.”
“It’s all done; take your time, baby. Do you want me to come and scrub your back?” I waggle my eyebrows.
“I don’t think there’s time for that.” East smirks, and heads down the hallway to our bedroom. It’s a large home, all on one level but there’s plenty of space; East did an awesome job on renovating and restoring the old building. I follow him and sit on the window seat as he strips off his clothes. He looks over at me. “What do you think of Denver then?”
“Now there’s a loaded question, baby.” I lean forward and rest my arms on my knees.
“You know what I mean. Shit, Kes, the reactions we get from him are hot as hell! He’s sexy as fuck and he seems to be interested.” East wanders to our bathroom, making me get up and follow him.
“I get that feeling, too, but he does seem confused and I’m not surprised: he must be getting some very mixed signals from the two of us. On one hand, we are affectionate to each other and then we are casually flirting with him. But fuck, East, the smell of him this afternoon as I drove him back home had me fucking hard.”

I owe everything to Levi. Everything. So when I fell for his girl, I did the only thing a good mate would do. I left. Ran. Six years in that hell hole trying to forget, trying to let them live and love each other. But I couldn’t stay away any longer.
And now I’m realising it wasn’t just her I’d fallen for.
He left us—spent years defending our country. He’s far more honourable than me. While I was living in paradise, happy, and in love with my gorgeous girl, he’s been facing horrors I can’t even imagine. It nearly broke me knowing he was there, and Katy and I were here.
Twenty years we’ve known each other. I’ve grown a lot in those years. But one thing hasn’t changed from the first day we met: we’re still inseparable.
Now I’m beginning to understand how, in another life, we could have been so much more.
Levi’s the love of my life, my soulmate. And life is good. We’re so damn lucky… blessed to have found each other. But there’s a “but”. There always is.
We’ve spent six years waiting, in limbo. Connor was fighting to make the world a better place, and we were incomplete without him. When he left, he took a piece of my heart.
Now he’s back.
Two’s a couple, three’s perfection ~ Amazon Reviewer
I have read all of Ann’s books and she is one of my favorite authors.
Delectable didn’t disappoint although it’s hard to get past Reef and Ford from her m/m series.
I loved Katy’s feistiness and unwavering support of ‘her men’
Con and Levi are delicious.
The writing is excellent as you expect from Ann.
My only criticism is the title, it really had little to do with the overall story but that is personal opinion.
Great story, great read. Highly recommend.
By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. With her quirky glasses and shiny leather briefcase, she has the librarian look nailed. All laced up tight in her pencil skirts and killer heels, her students can only fantasize about what she gets up to in her spare time. If only they could see those tattoos! Oh, and those notepads of story ideas tucked away in odd places that would be sure to have them fanning themselves!
By night she’s a wife and mum and a purveyor of saucy stories that are filled with lust, raunchy scenes and ultimately love. Ann’s an avid reader of anything sexy and firmly believes in the motto ‘leave mummy alone, she’s reading or writing.’ Because of that, she is pretty hopeless when it comes to getting dinner on the table on time or cleaning the house.

HER LIE, HIS TRUTH
by Monika Summerville
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Thriller
Seven years ago, as a parishioner of The Sanctuary of the Prophet, Kara King was asked by the administrators to help set up a journalist who’d been writing slanderous articles about their organization. They told her that the man had drug problems and abused women. At the age of twenty, Kara agreed to assist.
Seven years later she sees Jim Hollis, again. He just got out of prison for a rape and beating he didn’t commit. All he wants is the truth and will pull out all the stops to get it. Even lie to Kara.
With his brother’s help, Jim kidnaps Kara and begins trying to convince her that The Sanctuary has lied to her. Their Prophet is dead and they used her as a puppet.
Kara comes around and tells Jim everything that happened seven years ago. She also knows the administrators kept a file about what went on and if she can get that it would clear Jim’s name and overturn his conviction.
Will Jim be able to get Kara to tell the truth or will the lies mess up any chance for them at life?
“I know you lied.”
Kara heard a male voice behind her and turned. He stood only a foot away from her, but she’d know him anywhere. His face looked different now that he wore a beard, but she still recognized him.
Moving her chin up, she felt a frown on her lips. “I’m sorry, can I help you?”
The dark haired, blue-eyed man stared at her. “Come now, Kara. Let’s not play games.”
“Do I know you?”
“Only in the Biblical way. Your hair color is different, but I know it’s you because your green eyes haven’t changed. I spent seven years in prison because of you.”
She took a step back from the man. “I’m sorry, but I don’t know you.”
“You were a liar then and you’re still lying now. We can’t change what happened seven years ago, but I can get you to tell the truth now.”

She has written The Risky Dance series – A Risky Dance, A Lost Dance, and A Flame Dance and Midnight Weary for Siren BookStrand.
This story isn’t about love, like, lust, or a happily ever after. This story, my story, is about struggle, pain and suffering. Fighting to stay afloat while being pulled under by what feels like the murky and powerful undertow of the ocean. Fighting for strength I so desperately need when all I am feeling is desolate and weak. I’m a girl who exudes hatred when a normal girl of my age and pedigree should be the picture perfect portrait of love.
Alcohol consumes me. Drugs numb me. Sex for money feeds the hollow abyss deep within me. How does a soon-to-be twenty-five year old escort turn her life around when the last several years of her life has been spent traveling down a very dark path?
She became my obsession, my every thought. She is the reason I wake up in the morning, plotting, scheming, exacting a revenge she so desperately deserves. But will she take my offer once she learns my true identity; sees the darkness within me, or will she hate me for lying to her all of these years, leading her to lose herself to the drugs and alcohol that have kept her ghosts at bay? Will she be my Precious?
T. R. Cupak was born and raised in the California Bay Area. She now lives in a quiet town south of where she grew up with her husband and their shih tzu Harley. She is obsessed with cars, especially fast ones, and enjoys her music louder than anyone should. When she’s not at work or busy writing, you can find her curled up, reading and enjoying a fabulous glass of wine or a Dirty Shirley.
Despite her lifelong love of literature, Cupak lost touch with her creative side in her early twenties. Her passion for reading was rekindled six years ago, however, and in 2013 she started journaling. This practice helped Cupak hone her creative aspirations, and soon she saw her characters come to life. She has rediscovered her passion for storytelling and wants to share her words with everyone who wants to read them.
