Horny (novellette in the My Haunted Blender’s Gay Love Affair anthology)
Ryan Caulfield is a devout avoider of risk, so it comes as a surprise when he agrees to help a group of supernatural law enforcers catch Zeus (the god voted Least Likely to Keep It in His Pants). But how could he say no? He’s nothing if not law-abiding, even if it’s a legal code from another plane of existence. Besides, it all seems harmless enough . . . at least until the half-naked and all-hot immortal with wings and horns shows up.
In his centuries as an investigator for the Olympic pantheon, Leander of the Eroté has solved a lot of cases and slept with a lot of humans. But on this investigation, it looks like he won’t be doing either. His assigned task is bogus, and the most alluring mortal he’s ever met is determined to avoid hooking up.
But the pull Leander feels toward Ryan the bartender won’t let him turn his attention away for long. Soon, he finds himself interested in much more than his usual dalliances with mortals. Now if only he can convince Ryan he’s worth the risk.
Billionaire with Benefits (Romancelandia #2)
This is the story of Tierney and Dalton, from Too Stupid to Live. Now, let me just say upfront that Tierney changes—a lot, and rather traumatically—in this story, so it’s not like Love, Hypothetically in that respect (i.e., he doesn’t manage to fall in love while remaining a douchebag). That’s because Tierney has serious, fatal character flaws of his own making, whereas Paul’s flaws, while serious and of his own making, weren’t fatal.
Or maybe I just didn’t want to write a guy that prickish. IDK, but that’s not how the story works out. As for Dalton, the boy’s got a past, and it’s not all pretty.
