Their sweaty, gym-hardened bodies do battle in the arena for our entertainment and admiration. They are gladiators fighting to be the best at their chosen sport, putting their muscles on the line for the cheers of the crowd. And once the battle’s done, they strip down and get down to the serious business of giving and receiving pleasure. They are modern day gods to be worshipped, admired, touched, and loved. Here are their stories—stories of desire, lust, passion, and raw, animalistic pleasure that will blow your mind and stimulate your libido. You will never look at an athlete the same way again.

Who says crime doesn’t pay? Luca Bennett makes her living looking for people, but her sights aren’t set on lost children separated from their parents at a busy mall or elderly Alzheimer’s patients who wandered from the nursing home. She’s a bounty hunter paid to apprehend fugitives on the lam. Luca caught her latest job from new-in-town, criminal defense attorney, Veronica “Ronnie” Moreno. Ronnie’s client, seedy local businessman Jed Quitman, failed to show up for court, and Ronnie’s boss, who secured the bond, wants him found right away. With Jed’s mug smiling from dozens of billboards and low-budget, late night television commercials, Luca figures finding him will be a breeze. It doesn’t take long for Luca to realize there’s nothing simple about this job, from a stranger threatening her to stay away, to the fiery hot woman who has Luca looking for more than the usual one-night stand. The hunt for Jed quickly turns complicated, and the pursuit is fraught with danger, as is her attraction to the elusive Ronnie Moreno. In a case loaded with twists and turns, can Luca find everything she’s looking for?

Amazon: Deranged by Murray Sexton: Twenty Song Parodies for Gay Cabaret

Poking fun at twenty of the best songs ever, Murray Sexton s cabaret-style song parodies (or derangements ) are by turns hilarious, clever, precise, gay, leathery, sentimental, deep and whimsical. Sexton leaves no sacred cow unmilked as he takes unflinching aim at love, jealousy, open relationships, loan sharks, the Red Velvet Armadillo Groom's Cake from Steel Magnolias, and what folks call beer goggles (or as he phrases it, the Cosmopolitan Eye ). Also: celebrities who died of drug overdoses (provided their names rhyme).

Give me six months, and I'll give you the world. Brandon McKinney is a man reborn. Newly awakened to the notion of consensual power exchange and the submissive urges inside him, he begs for a second chance from the man who opened his eyes to this world: Silicon Valley superstar Jonathan Watkins. But no birth is absent pain, and Brandon’s is no exception. He fears he’s not strong enough to see it through. Jonathan knows better. He’s seen the iron core inside his new submissive, and the wounded heart inside him too. He means to teach Brandon to heal the one with the other. They have five months left on their contract, after all, and Jonathan has done more with less before. It’s tough to stay objective, though, when you’re falling in love. Shame Brandon doesn’t feel the same. He’s only there for the three-million-dollar payout at contract’s end—a fact that Jonathan, nursing his own wounded heart, reminds himself of each day. For even as Brandon’s barriers break and his mind expands, even as he grows to love his place at Jonathan’s feet, he’ll never love life with a sadist—especially one who cannot escape the public eye.
