I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted. Since then, I rarely read anything else, unless it’s high fantasy, which often tends to be gender neutral. I’m a sucker for a good romance, hot guys and lots of trouble! Throw one or all at me and I’m very likely to fall in love with the story. Unless there is something that seriously turns me off a story, I’m unlikely to go below 3 stars.

Recipe for a Curse, by Lissa Kasey

Recipe for love: Take one chef, add a veteran with a curse, mix gently with a pinch of snowstorm, add a dash of gourmet food, and some sweet snuggles.

When a blizzard leads Montana to the home of local recluse and military veteran, Rio, he discovers the man he's been fawning over is food insecure and practically homeless. He’s determined to help, even if it means bringing Rio home with him.

But Rio is more than just shy and afraid to be around people. He’s cursed. He knows Montana doesn’t see the monster inside him, but Rio is afraid of losing control.

Montana doesn’t understand why Rio’s always hungry but he doesn’t care. The fact that he loves to cook and Rio needs to eat means they are a match made in heaven, right?

Heir to a Curse, by Lissa Kasey

Zach is running out of time to save the man fated to be his.

After losing a friend and inheriting her million-dollar home riddled with repair issues, Zach has his hands full. As a construction contractor he plans to make it the home she always wanted it to be. Except every time he fixes one thing, something else happens: fire, damage to the garden, and even mysterious lights making the staff whisper about ghosts. All linked to a historic Chinese shrine on the property.

When Zach catches a glimpse of a mystery man near the shrine, then dreams of monsters, he wonders if grief has driven him mad. But when a kiss awakens him to his past lives with an exiled lover, he begins to realize the only way out is to break the curse.

A Death in Bloomsbury, by David C. Dawson

Everyone has secrets… but some are fatal.

1932, London. Late one December night Simon Sampson stumbles across the body of a woman in an alleyway. Her death is linked to a plot by right-wing extremists to assassinate the King on Christmas Day. Simon resolves to do his patriotic duty and unmask the traitors.
But Simon Sampson lives a double life. Not only is he a highly respected BBC radio announcer, but he’s also a man who loves men, and as such must live a secret life. His investigation risks revealing his other life and with that imprisonment under Britain’s draconian homophobic laws of the time. He faces a stark choice: his loyalty to the King or his freedom.

This is the first in a new series from award-winning author David C. Dawson. A richly atmospheric novel set in the shadowy world of 1930s London, where secrets are commonplace, and no one is quite who they seem.

Dublin Bay by John Patrick

In 1939, the world tumbles toward war and the lives of two young men will be forever changed.

James Brennan grew up in the poorest of Dublin’s tenements, turning adversity to advantage wherever he could. But he’s nearly a man now—with a good education at that—and wants more from life than what he can get as a day laborer, or following his father into the factory.

Otto Werner is the privileged son of a German diplomat stationed in Dublin. Otto is destined for great things in the new Europe sure to arise after Germany’s victory in the war. But he’s a lonely young man, living in Ireland with only his father for company, cut off from friends and family back home.

The two teens meet by chance, and each sees in the other a means to advance his own interests. But they quickly become friends, and then—surprisingly, dangerously—more. As the globe spirals deeper into chaos, the love between the young men deepens; but their world is not a hospitable place for forbidden love.

As war comes closer and closer to home, everything they believe—about themselves, about each other, about the world around them—will be shattered. Will their love for each other survive the pull toward destruction in a world gone mad?

The Heir of Westmacott Hall by Gillian St. Kevern

A mystery science can’t solve.

Newt Grimshaw lives by the scientific method. His current hypothesis is that transforming his former family home, Westmacott Hall, into a school will:

A) remove him from poverty

B) restore the ruined reputation of his chemist parents, and:

C) silence the rumours connected to Westmacott Hall for good.

But Westmacott Hall contains even more secrets than cobwebs. Someone is determined to prevent Newt from claiming his inheritance—and then Newt witnesses a dead man walking the halls of his family estate.

Alive, Griffin Winsor was determined to destroy the credibility of the Grimshaw name. Sudden death but an end to his campaign—or has his desire for revenge brought him back from beyond the grave? Newt doesn’t believe in ghosts, but Griffin is his only hope of uncovering the truth behind his parents’ tragic deaths.

To make his school a success, Newt must solve the mysteries of Westmacott, or risk becoming a failed experiment himself. As Newt grapples with the facts, will his adherence to science save him—or will Westmacott Hall claim another victim?
