OUT NOW! Bring Your Sub to Work Day by K.S. Murphy
After being in both a romantic and D/s relationship for more than three years, Royce Cunningham and Jack Parker have decided to take the next step and move in together. What neither of them could have ever predicted was a global pandemic complete with a quarantine and social distancing to happen around the same time.
Now they’re struggling to navigate through these trying times while also dealing with the normal stresses of learning to live together. In doing so, they’ve unintentionally let a few cracks run through part of the foundation of their relationship.
It’ll be up to the both of them to recognize what they need, and maybe a special quarantine-edition playdate or two, to patch up those cracks and remind themselves that even in a world of new normals, they can still be the same to each other as they’ve always been.
OUT NOW! One Night in London: Dalton and Edward by K.S. Murphy
No one’s ever expected much from Dalton Irving, the reserved, sheltered, and bookish heir to the family fortune. So in order to secure their place in London’s society, the Irvings have arranged for Dalton to marry the brother of a viscount. A man who comes from a family with a title and with quite the scandalous reputation. A man Dalton doesn’t know. A man who’s very publicly announced that he doesn’t want to get married, least of all to Dalton, right in the middle of their engagement ball.
In an attempt to flee whispered words and sudden gossip and unexpected hurt from venomous words, Dalton finds comfort from the very last person he would have expected — the wry, reclusive, and unsocial Edward Whitman, Duke of Wellingham.
Edward Whitman doesn’t like most people on his best days. They’re dull and predictable and care only about money and status. Tonight, however, is the engagement ball for his best friend’s brother, so he’ll make an appearance to assure the night’s success even if the idea of anyone marrying young Dalton Irving puts a strange ache in the pit of his stomach.
But after Dalton’s intended makes a mess of the ball, Edward suddenly finds himself alone with the young man, drawn to his wide-eyed curiosity and kindhearted generosity, his rambling and odd musings. Neither of them can imagine what this evening has in store for anyone, and all it takes is one night in London to change everything.
JMS Books’ Trios are themed collections of three gay romance stories by a trio of authors. Each story is available separately, but readers can get all three for a discounted bundle price.
One Night in London contains three M/M historical romances. Contains the stories:
James and Nicholas by Shelly Greene: Widowed viscount James Thorne insists he will never remarry — not because he could never love again, but because he secretly already does. His late wife’s brother, Nicholas, is too closely related by law; James’s love is unseemly, violating honor and propriety. When Nicholas is badly injured in an accident, will James be shaken into confessing his feelings? Or will he lose Nicholas forever?
Dalton and Edward by K.S. Murphy: Tonight’s ball announces Dalton Irving’s engagement to a man his parents chose for him. But Dalton’s intended has made it clear that he wants nothing to do with being married to Dalton. When disaster strikes, and Dalton finds himself alone with Duke Edward Whitman, who has little patience for people and even less for discourtesy, anything can happen during this one night in London.
Robert and Anthony by K.L. Noone: Tonight’s ball celebrates Robert’s engagement and his intended’s fortune. But Robert’s in love with someone he can’t have: his secretary Anthony. Anthony’s family once was wealthy, though now he works for a living. But he’s had some success as a secret lurid novelist, and he’s hopelessly in love with Robert. When disaster strikes, secrets are revealed, and everything changes.
Hello there! I’m so pleased to be a part of JMS’s 10th Anniversary. It’s been an absolute joy working with everyone at JMS. For my blog post, I’d like to share an excerpt of a work in progress tentatively called Into the Endless Night, Forever, a high fantasy tale of revenge, redemption, and a love that never dies.
OUT NOW! Pretend You Are for Five More Minutes by K.S. Murphy
Henry Kato is in a really bad mood. One of his rude, annoying, and mildly offensive co-workers has been bugging him for weeks about the upcoming office party. To get him off his back, Henry enlists the help of his best friend Luke to go with him as his plus one.
What Henry doesn’t expect is for Luke to blurt out that they’re engaged. Which they’re most decidedly not. Even if Henry wishes it were true.
Do they have what it takes to convince everyone the engagement is real? Or will they burn up in smoke before the night even gets started?
