Then Howard Campbell is added to the mix, a man Don and Griff both love beyond words, and jealousy and mistrust threaten not just their bond, but even Don’s ability to keep his farm viable. Nearly losing Howard in an accident serves as a wakeup call. They begin to pull their relationship out of the muck and work to remember why they came together in the first place. If they can figure out how to help one another and make sure each man gets what he needs, the trio might build the loving future they’ve dared to hope for. They have to be brave enough to commit every resource they can muster—especially trust, understanding, and acceptance—and realize true love is never as easy as it looks.
A Bun in their Omega's Oven
Lorelei M. Hart - 2018
Chris is a lucky guy. Good things often fall into his lap, including the TV baking competition that jumpstarted his career. But he wants more than just money in the bank, a bit of fame, and a growing business. Chris wants a family—although he’d probably settle for a good lay with the one man who wants less than nothing to do with him. Adam’s life is all about dough—and not the kind that could get him out of his small-town rut. No, Adam’s stuck running the family bagel business and trying to out-bake the arrogant celebrity donut-maker and adopted town prince, Chris. If only he could get Chris out of his hot dreams. But the guy boasts the best donuts in the state and an ass you could bounce quarters off—and Adam’s subconscious just can’t ignore him. Then there’s Oliver. His life is fan-freaking-tastic—except it totally isn’t. Back home and living in his mother’s basement is the last place he expected to be at his age. Worse yet, the only job he can get is running a delivery route nobody wants. And for good reason. The last two bakery stops are made of evil—or so he’s been told. But his boss forgot to mention the bakeries are owned by the hottest men Oliver’s ever seen. Too bad they hate each other. Or do they? The longer Oliver spends between these two hot bakers, the more he flips their antagonism upside down, their attraction making their alpha instincts kick in, much to their surprise. Now if only they can figure out how to deal with the even bigger surprise that’s about to kick—in Oliver. A Bun in Their Omega’s Oven is a full-length, pun-filled, non-shifter, MMM, Mpreg romance featuring an omega who needs de-flouring, three men who make sure all things rise to the occasion, a chicken with more names than any critter needs, two stubborn bakers who know how to bring the knotty heat, and a special bun in the oven that will not be delivered via a truck.

Or the lover he’d thought was dead… but wasn’t.This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group's "Love’s Landscapes" event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.

X took Y into his house and X and his pet(s) have helped Y piece his life back together. X held Y as he mourned and watched as Y finally began to smile and enjoy his work again. X and Y have been part-time lovers for the last few months, but X fears he is not enough for Y to be completely happy.However, now Z has escaped from whatever hellhole prison he was in and is at the door, waiting to reclaim Y. X knows he should let Y go, that Y and Z still love each other. But how can X and pet(s) bear to let the man they have come to love go? Y has loved Z for many years— Z is his heart and inspiration— but X has become his rock. Z’s dreams of returning to Y kept him alive, but how does Z feel when he comes home after two years of worrying about Y to find him in the home of another man?Photo Description: Picture One: Two men stand outside in the rain. They hold each other in a tight embrace, the hard muscles of their bare arms straining as they cling to each other. Rain dampens the longish black hair of one of the men, drops trickling down his neck and leaving goose bumps in their path. The other’s lips are slightly parted, maybe hoping for a kiss from his lover in the rain.Picture Two: A dark haired man lounges in bed, his thumb rasping over the well-trimmed scruff of his beard. He’s relaxed, bare chested and only wearing sleep pants that sit low on his hips, revealing his toned, flat abs. But he’s still wearing his wire rimmed glasses as he peruses the work he’s brought with him to bed.This story may contain sexually explicit content and is intended for adult readers.
