Rarely Pure and Never Simple (Variant Configurations #1) by Angel Marinez
Rarely Pure & Never Simple
In the not too distant future, a new genetic breakthrough has eliminated most diseases and congenital disorders. But in an unanticipated side effect, some children are born with special talents, like the ability to find people or create fireballs. Many of these ‘variants’ join The Guild, which cultivates and makes use of their powers. However, these powers also seems to come with their own drawbacks, from psychological to political.
Damien Hazelwood is an extreme example of the double-edged sword of being a vari. His special talent is being able to find people, especially lost children. But he was so traumatized in his youth that he has a severe case of OCD, which is so bad he can’t stand to be around people. He refuses to be part of the Guild, but he still agrees to work for them from time to time. Read more ›

Catch Me If You Can: Romano and Albright, Book 1 by LB Gregg
Catch Me If You Can
Things are looking up for Caesar Romano. The opening party for the new show at the gallery where he works is looking to be a huge success. With that under his belt, he can quit his low-paying job and apply for a much better paying job at a much more prestigious gallery uptown. The only fly in the ointment is the presence of his former boyfriend Shep, a closeted actor who can’t seem to stay away. On the plus side, there’s a hunky though apparently straight detective on the scene who seems more than a little interested in Caesar.
The picture isn’t quite as rosy the next morning, when Caesar arrives at the gallery to find Shep passed out, naked, in the bathroom, and one of the centerpiece busts from the show missing. The stolen artwork is just the tip of the iceberg, as Caesar and his friends are drawn into a web of strange alliances and blackmail. Along the way he finds out that Detective Dan isn’t what he seems. Read more ›
