It’s quite a shock when Theo inherits his weird uncle’s mansion after the man dies unexpectedly. Sure, Uncle Harold cared for Theo, babysitting him when his parents couldn’t find anyone else to do it, but Theo doesn’t have many clear memories of that part of his childhood.

Regardless, he and his boyfriend, Jun, decide to move into the enormous house. But when Theo starts hearing odd noises coming from the study after a few months, he starts to think that the place is haunted.

The truth is much worse.

In a small hidden room, Theo finds a naked man behind bars…

Practice Makes Perfect: a free gay MM cross dressing short story by Ryder O. Cox

Mateo and Morgan have been great friends since their first year of college. They hang out any chance they get, from studying together or playing video games to confiding in each other about their struggles (most of which involve their consistent inability to keep girlfriends). So when Mateo gets dumped (again), of course it’s Morgan he goes to for support. But this time, Matty has an idea…

What if his problem is simply lack of practice? If he could just get past his nervousness, he’s sure he could get and keep a girlfriend. And who better to practice with than someone he’s comfortable with, like his best friend..? After all, Morg is totally Mateo’s type. If he were a girl, of course. But Matty has a good imagination, so a little change of clothes should do the trick. It’s all just for practice, right?

Too bad neither of them are prepared for how cute Morgan looks in that skirt and stockings…

Killer Love

by Ryder O. Cox & Kotori

Killer Love: a new m/m gay enemies to lovers romance novel by Ryder O. Cox free on kindle unlimited!

Harris McGuire and Dalton Gardener are both assassins utilized by the mafia. Dalton is one of the highest professionals on the totem pole, known for his precision and planning, who works for the top crime family in the area. Harris, on the other hand, is a brutal yet efficient freelancer who various mafia outfits have been known to contract. The two assassins’ paths cross on occasion and they enjoy a friendly rivalry, with Dalton teasing Harris for not ‘settling down’ to work with a single mafia family and Harris thinking that Dalton is the more stuck up and limited of the two due to the mafia’s rules which he must follow to a T.

But one day, unbeknownst to each other, they both receive peculiar assignments – to kill the other assassin. Dalton’s comes from his mafia boss, whereas Harris’ is from a strange anonymous (but wealthy) client.

Tainted Belief

Gay MM Romance between a demon succubus and catholic priest

Bad: An asexual Catholic priest falls for the choir director at his church.
Worse: That choir director just happens to be an incubus in disguise.
For as long as he’s been an adult, Father Nikolas has been a priest. He went from high school to seminary school and then found a flock to lead in a small suburb of London. He’s never needed or wanted anything else, really. But when he finds his eyes lingering on the choir director long after everyone else has left, Niko begins to question everything.
Leviathan was cast out from Heaven and he chose to become an incubus, pursuing the pleasures of mankind instead of their torment. He sees Father Nikolas as just another meal, someone to play with, seduce, nourish himself with, and leave. But all that changes when he finds himself growing feelings for the priest.
