A bottle of Powers; a case of Guinness; random relatives and friends dropping in in taxis to do shots and listen to Kelly's beloved Paddy Rock all night long. The clean-up would take days, but it was all worth it for their favorite holiday of the year. Then along came the babies. Rory and Shea are the apple of their dads' eyes, the center of their world... but not really party-friendly. Jamie and Kelly haven't had a night out in six months, though, so Jamie's mother offers to take the teething twins for St. Pat's. Except she turns up sick on the day of, and it looks like the idea of a super-dad date isn't in the cards after all. Not unless one of them finds a way, anyhow...

Ten years ago, Gabriel spent a summer alternately torturing and hooking up with Andrew as they tried to ignore their parents' embarrassing affair.

A covert game of betrayals ensues. Things start out complicated, with Gabriel using Andrew's open arms and attraction to him for all it's worth. Gabriel tells himself he doesn't reciprocate, and then that he can control it, but it's too violent for either of them to deny.

The stakes are much higher than just their livelihoods. Gabriel begins to fear it'll come down to a choice between everything he's ever believed in, wanted, and stood for--and the only love he's ever known.

Katey Hawthorne - The ​Dangers of Fairy Compacts
When ​Aeron heard the summons from the mortal realm, he couldn't resist. The voice, the one that had been echoing through his dreams since he was just a boy, the one everyone thought meant he was going mad just like his mother, was real. And it was mortal. Aeron stepped through the tear in the worldfabric to meet his destiny. Instead, he found a shy young forest-priest with halting speech and a ridiculous smile--who claimed to know absolutely nothing about why his voice had been stuck in Aeron's head for decades. Not to mention why they both have the strange feeling they've been bound, somehow, for a very long time. Fairy Compacts is the story of two men, one fae, one mortal, who share a terrible history of which neither is aware. Whether or not their budding affection for one another can overcome the shock of finding out the truth, only time will tell. But this is for certain: one should never make fairy compacts. They always end in tragedy. Usually for the mortal. But not always.

Katey Hawthorne - Riot ​Boy
Etienne ​never thought getting his pocket picked could lead to a first date. He knows the second he catches punk boy Brady's eye that the guy is pure trouble, but Et can't resist his wicked sense of humor, pretty face, cold hands -- and the "piss off" swagger when Brady's on stage with his band doesn't hurt, either. From Rimbaud to Buzzcocks to Malbec to handcuffs, they introduce each other to their favorite pleasures, and the chemistry is unstoppable. But Brady disappears in the night, won't give Etienne a phone number, doesn't talk about his past; Etienne's never known someone so hungry for affection but with so many trust issues. Et would give all he has, but he has the feeling Brady needs saving from something before he can take what Et offers. Then, the "something" shows up: Brady's dangerous family, all of them more than human -- including Brady, who has the ability to supercool matter with the slightest touch. Throw in the family talent for criminal activity, and it's an explosion waiting to happen. Et wants to help him escape his past, but if Brady keeps disappearing, he may not get the chance.

He's also an out gay man with an appetite for the quick and easy lay. It's tough to have a relationship when you're hiding off-the-charts electrical powers, but Jamie doesn't mind. Not until the prickly, paddy rocking, geeky-hot new guy at work shows him what he's been missing, anyhow. Kellan Shea's singular combination of dirty mouth and pure soul makes Jamie spark right from the beginning. To break through Kelly's defensive front and get to the gentle heart inside, Jamie will have to reconcile his split life: come to terms with his past, his family, his powers, even his nightmares. Easier said than done, but if Jamie doesn't step up and own the truth, he could lose his love before it gets off the ground.

Katey Hawthorne - The ​Playhouse
Summer ​has been Lily McBride’s favorite time of year since she was a kid, because that’s when the Brookesville Playhouse opens its doors. Now that she’s an adult and works as their tech director, Lily wants more for her beloved Playhouse: a larger audience, a longer season, and exciting shows to draw new patrons. This year, though, she also wants Genevieve Mason, a pretty starlet-in-the-making from the local university, recruited for the season’s tech crew. Genny throws her heart and soul into the place too, adding her own dreams of representation to the ‘must-have’ list, and using her sweet voice and surprising flare for pyrotechnics to draw the crowds in droves. They work so well together, it’s not long before their summer crush blossoms into a steamy affair. Lily’s falling hard, but always feels like Genny’s holding something back. And then there’s the dreaded Brookesville Arts Council—supposed to be a support system for all things cultural, instead dragging the Playhouse down with their old-fashioned stubbornness. There are a lot of hurdles to jump and egos to deflate before they can get what they want, both for the theater and from each other.
