He is just going to end it all because he is just too damn tired of trying to survive.


Thirty year old Donte Womac has it all...a comfy townhouse in Chelsea, an active social life, a stable of cars and a cushy job. Then tragedy strikes and a young man lay dying in his arms. Then Donte discovers that all the money in the world can't help a person who wants to kill himself.

What's more, le scandale has outed him to the world, including his highly conservative Papa, Mark Jackson.


But ironically, mysteriously, Papa has invited him home for Christmas, insisting that he bring his live-in lover, porn star turned restaurateur, Cameron Cody.


Grant can't help but wonder: Why would Papa extend the invitation, and what awaits in Selma, now that everyone knows that I am gay, a one-time gay adult film actor, and a former prostitute?


So he ponders: Under these circumstances, can I survive being home for the holiday, or will Christmas in Selma, California, be yet one more debacle?

By Morgan Elektra

covers/ME_A_Single_Heartbeat.jpg

Nature made them adversaries, but one glance ignites a lust stronger than the need for blood.


After 200 years, the nightlife has lost its allure for Reese. A leader among his kind, owner of a nightclub that serves as a banquet of nubile flesh and hot blood, he is bored out of his mind.


His heart hasn't stirred in over a century.


Born to a line of vampire hunters, Will ventures out every day after dark to track down those creatures who have crossed the line from feeding to murder, and destroy them.


All he wants is one night off to drink and dance and maybe get laid.


Too bad it's not his lucky night. Or maybe it is?


Not even witnessing Will stake one of his brethren is enough to quell the lust that Reese feels from his first glimpse of the gorgeous hunter. And though Will knows how dangerous it could be to take the sensual invitation in Reese's dark eyes, he can't resist.


Why fight when they could fuck instead?
