Amazon Kindle: Delicious

“You’re exactly what I never knew I needed.”

“I don’t have time for love.”
Gavin Campbell has poured everything he has into starting up his bakery, Delicious. Its success has given him a sense of security that was sorely lacking in his childhood, and even if working round-the-clock hasn’t left him any time for a personal life, you can’t have it all, right?

“Maybe I just need something delicious in my life.”
Outgoing, successful, and with an ass to die for, Ben Edwards is everything a girl could want… and yet none of his exes have managed to tie him down. He knows the fault isn’t with them, though. No matter how great the girl, Ben just doesn’t seem wired to fall in love.

“I want to be the one who takes care of you.”
When an accident leaves Gavin unable to work, Ben steps in to help, inviting Gavin into his home, his life and, eventually, into his heart. Despite homophobic relatives, a jealous ex-boyfriend, and more sweet temptation than either man was prepared for, they’ll each discover that just because they didn’t know something was missing, doesn’t mean it can’t still be found.

Delicious is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. It is set in the same series-world as “Someday,” Danny and Mace’s story, and “Falling,” Jeremy and Nick’s story.

“If you can’t remember it, was it ever real at all?”

“How do I fall out of love?”
Cash Bennett enlisted in the Marines the day his boyfriend married someone else, but military life failed to numb the pain. After he got out, he relied on casual sex and the adrenaline rush of pushing his limits to distract himself from the inescapable truth: He’d lost his heart the first time he laid eyes on Robbie Logan, and he’s never going to get it back.

“I want a divorce.”
An accident on Robin Logan’s eighteenth birthday changed his life. He lost his memory but gained a best friend, a woman whose dreams were stolen when their lives collided. At the urging of his homophobic father, Robin married her out of guilt. But now he’s free… and not at all sure he’s got the courage to go after what he’s never admitted to wanting. Or whether he even deserves it.

“I love you. I don’t know how to do anything else.”
Robin doesn’t remember what they once were to each other, and Cash can’t forget the way they’d been. Sometimes, though, life gives you a second chance to do it all over again…

Again is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. It is set in the same series-world as “Someday,” Danny and Mace’s story, “Delicious,” Gavin and Ben’s story, and “Falling,” Jeremy and Nick’s story.

2016 Rainbow Awards: Engaged to Win by Aubrey Cullens (385-09-03-2016)

Engaged to Win by Aubrey Cullens
Gay Contemporary Romance
Publisher: LoveLight Press (December 23, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: Engaged to Win

Can he fix the biggest mistake of his life?

Dillon Cross is the anti-politician: honest, idealistic, and a true public servant. But he's got one huge blot on his conscience.

Matt Mitchell.

Dill thought he was straight until he met Matt in college. On the verge of coming out just as he launched his political career, Dill was pushed into the closet by his father. Persuaded that an openly gay politician could never win, he sacrificed love--and Matt--and married a woman.

Now, years later, he's single again after losing his wife ... and a chance encounter with Matt turns both their worlds upside down.

Dill has never stopped loving the openly-gay screenwriter, and this time he's not willing to give him up. He'll do anything to keep him close--even risk tarnishing his squeaky-clean image.

Matt has never forgiven Dill for walking away. He can't deny his feelings, but trust is another matter.

Can two good-hearted men survive gossip, scandal, scheming exes, and political machinations to win their second chance at love?

(Engaged To Win is a standalone m/m contemporary gay romance of approximately 55,000 words containing profanity, mature adult content, two men who deserve a second chance at love, and a happily ever after ending.)
