- Educating Parker by Eve Surrey
Coming to Tuscany for a holiday and some perspective on her failing marriage, Jo expected sun, art, history, and cultured conversation, not a nineteen-year-old Apollo named Parker reminding her that she is not the sensible, decorous middle-aged woman everybody—including herself—takes her for. Jo finds many things she could learn from Parker’s zest for life and thirst for experience, but Parker has a thing or two to learn from Jo; namely, how to really satisfy a lover. As they dare each other to get bolder and wilder, there’s no telling how their affair will end.
- Gentleman Warlock by Peter C. Manning
The city of Santa Elena, California, is under siege, and the general public has no idea. Strange creatures are stalking the shadows of the city, the places normal people don’t know about, hunting anyone with an aptitude for magic. Those who can’t escape die messy, with a piece of their souls torn out.
Danni Gideon, a genderqueer person who inherited some of their grandmother’s magical talent, has had better days. In addition to losing their job and their girlfriend, now Danni also has to deal with attacks by soul-sucking monsters. When Benjamin Clancy, the magical enforcer known as the gentleman warlock, shows up on the doorstep, Danni trades a life of workaholic tech entrepreneurs and lesbian heiresses for one with horny dragons, seductive faerie women, and the mystery of who controls the monsters trying to kill them.
