Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can't even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling? Former Queen's Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn't think his life could get any worse: he's been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he's not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he's going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree hugger is really a druid, he's certain the gods have it in for him--after all, there's always a catch with druids. Then he's magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101. All right, now things couldn't possibly get worse. Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he's lost--for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce's life forever. Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won't survive the week anyway.

Rimmon may be an eagle warrior, but he’s never known war, and he’s never known love—until his kingdom’s army is destroyed by Ekari, the demon of winds, and he is captured by Melkor, one of the Iron Horde that has been killing off the world's gods. Those gods have cursed Melkor and his brothers to be conquerors and never to be loved, but Melkor, hoping to overcome his fate, carries Rimmon off to his island. There, he heals Rimmon’s wounds and teaches him about sexual pleasure, earning the young warrior’s trust and fanning the flames of an attraction both men yearn to embrace. But the curses of vengeful gods are difficult to break, especially when Rimmon discovers Melkor is the demon who destroyed his home.

Besides, romance is so not a priority for him right now.

Apparently, an office build-out can lay the foundation for a new relationship. Who knew? But before Alex can trust Gideon with the truth about his fragile family, he has to believe that Gideon's capable of caring about more than appearances. And Gideon must learn that when it comes to the heart, it's content--not presentation--that matters.
