Did you hear the one about the rich parents who sent their kid to conversion therapy? You didn’t? Well, that’s because it’s not funny. And it didn’t work.
I’m a trust fund baby. The boy with the summer trips to France, the Mercedes for his sixteenth birthday, and the fancy degree from Georgetown. I have everything. But my family didn't believe me when I came out. I've lived my truth for years, but they just don't get it.
The moment I see Jesse Boatwright, though, I start forming a plan. Jesse needs cash, and I need a date for my sister's debutante ball. But Jesse dislikes everything about me. He says I’m rich and spoiled, and I was born with a silver spoon shoved straight down my throat. That's fine. He's just my date.
But when Jesse kisses me, his lips tell a different tale. I can feel the depth of his need, the desire in his veins. I wish I could block out the world and hold him forever, but he keeps pushing me away. He tells me he’s a freak, a screw-up, a liar, that we could never be together. There are secrets Jesse is keeping; I just don’t know what they are yet.
When I finally discover the terrors that lie in his past, Jesse is already part of my story. I’m head over heels, falling hard, and ready to show Jesse that he’s exactly the man I need.
I lied to get a job. Well, it’s bigger than that. I lied copiously to get a job, and my boss is the hottest guy I’ve ever seen.
Will Marshall is everything I never wanted. His blood is Confederate blue, and his parents own the Country Club of Virginia. His money dates back to Queen Victoria, and I’d rather not imagine his family’s history when it comes to civil rights.
But Will is kind and strong, and those bedroom eyes make me want to drop out of my office chair. He’s beautiful, and not just physically. Every inch of him is good and pure, and I’m filled with lies.
I haven’t been with a guy since my ex gave me a black eye, burned all my stuff, and stole my cat. I don’t have money to pay rent, and I don’t have a degree from anywhere, let alone a doctorate in physical therapy. I’m not half the person Will thinks I am.
But I’m falling in love with him. I can’t let him know that. After the deb ball, I need to quit this job and leave town before he finds out what I really am.
When he holds me, though, I feel real again, like a person worth loving. When danger is on the horizon, I just have to decide if Will Marshall is worth the risk.

Hector gifts a Word to Owen—one that he claims can not only take life, but also restore it.

Jacek’s worst fears are soon realized when he learns that Owen is not only his avowed enemy, but something infinitely worse—a devil in human form, with the power to take life with a mere word. When Jacek can’t bring himself to destroy the man with whom he is falling deeply in love, he is forced to confront his flawed understanding of good and evil.

They have eyes for each other. But someone is eyeing them for murder. An erotic gay romance mystery.
In the Junior students’ dormitory at Oakschott Hall, a heavy gaslight falls from the ceiling, crushing the head of a student sleeping beneath it. Was it simply a tragic accident? To avoid publicity, the Headmaster asks Colin Revell, a young Oxford University graduate and former Oakschott student, to quietly investigate.
While interviewing the faculty and staff, Colin meets Max Lambourne, a handsome don who was wounded and gassed in WWI. When Colin tries to help Max overcome his trauma and depression, the two men fall in love and begin an erotic affair.
But when another student dies—diving at night into an empty swimming pool—murder is suspected. Students and faculty all come under suspicion, and rumors proliferate when Scotland Yard intervenes. Meanwhile, during all this confusion and wild theories, the murderer sees Colin and Max as threats. Unbeknownst to the two lovers, their lives are now in danger.
The night of my high school graduation, I broke my first love's heart. Despite our innocence, I didn’t believe a happily-ever-after would be possible for me. I was convinced I had to be straight. Since then I made my life picture-perfect through sheer force of will—I built a billion-dollar company, married a good girl and even gave her a child. People think I'm a cut-throat as$hole, but my attitude got me exactly where I wanted to go.
Until it all came crashing down. The company fired me for bad behavior, the wife left, and the worst part of all, she took my daughter with her. Now the only place I want to go is Abingdon, the home I left two decades back. My first night in town, I run right into the six-foot-four, sculpted vision of perfection that is Zane Chase—the same boy I loved all those years ago.
Zane is an artist, a damn good one. I offer him a few million to work with my new business, and he accepts. I’ve never really been with a man before, other than those few kisses I stole from Zane. But Zane is patient and kind, and when we’re together, anything seems possible--even a happy ever after. Until my ex drops my daughter with me and disappears from both of our lives.
Now I’m not just an unemployed as$hole in a small town, I’m also a single dad to a traumatized kid whose mom has vanished. My sweet girl doesn’t trust me, and I desperately need a crash course how to be the parent she really deserves. I thought Zane might give me a second chance, but he's too good to drag into this mess I've created.
Elias Spaulding is a total d*ck. He’s abrupt, rude, presumptuous--seems he never learned any damn manners. From the perfectly tailored suits to the wild business ideas and fast cars, he’s everything I should hate. Instead he’s the most fascinating man I’ve encountered in years—and deep down, he’s the same boy who stole that first kiss from me in the darkness of my dorm room.
The more I get to know him, the more I realize that his gruff personality is just a façade. Beneath all of his bluster is a man who wants a real life—a home, a family, and someone to love. I was never the kind to settle down, not since I left Abingdon for New York. But there’s something telling me that Elias might just be worth all the trouble he causes.
I’m falling in love with Elias, whether I like it or not. And I can see myself here, in Abingdon, building a life with him and his daughter.
Just when things start going well, a dangerous ghost from Elias’ past appears, threatening everything we’ve built together. Elias keeps trying to push me away in the midst of all this drama, but this time, I’m not leaving.
Elias Spaulding was my first love, and now he is my home. I won't let him go without a fight.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE
When a string of young queer men turn up dead in grisly murders, all signs point to the ex-boyfriend—but what should be an open-and-shut case is fraught with tension when BPD homicide detective Malcolm Khalaji joins up with a partner he never wanted. Rigid, ice-cold, and a stickler for the rules, Seong-Jae Yoon is a watchful presence whose obstinacy and unpredictability constantly remind Malcolm why he prefers to work alone. Seong-Jae may be stunningly attractive, a man who moves like a graceful, lethal bird of prey...but he's as impossible to decipher as this case.
And if Malcolm doesn't find the key to unravel both in time, another vulnerable young victim may end up dead.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Baltimore homicide detective Malcolm Khalaji has his own way of doing things: quiet, methodical, logical, effective, not always particularly legal. He’s used to working alone—and the last thing he needs is a new partner ten years his junior.
Especially one like Seong-Jae Yoon.
Icy. Willful. Detached. Stubborn. Seong-Jae is all that and more, impossible to work with and headstrong enough to get them both killed…if they don’t kill each other first. Foxlike and sullen, Seong-Jae’s disdainful beauty conceals a smoldering and ferocious temper, and as he and Malcolm clash the sparks between them build until neither can tell the difference between loathing and desire.
But as bodies pile up at their feet a string of strange, seemingly unrelated murders takes a bizarre turn, leading them deeper and deeper into Baltimore’s criminal underworld. Every death carries a dangerous message, another in a trail of breadcrumbs that can only end in blood.
Malcolm and Seong-Jae must combine their wits against an unseen killer and trace the unsettling murders to their source. Together, they’ll descend the darkest pathways of a twisted mind—and discover just how deep the rabbit hole goes. And if they can’t learn to trust each other?
Neither will make it out alive.
