First Swallow of Spring by Asta Idonea
The first swallow of spring draws Seanán back to the fae circle each year, where he dances with the handsome fae lord, Iorweth. He knows the four rules he must follow if he wishes to be free to leave at the end of the night; however, Iorweth is growing ever more inventive in his attempts to trick Seanán into breaking them.
First Swallow of Spring Excerpt:
No words were exchanged as they walked down the long, golden corridor. The only sound was the echo of their steps on the marble floor. As always on May Eve, the palace was deserted; all the Fae were above, enjoying their moonlit revels.
When they reached Iorweth’s chamber, the Fae lord drew Seanán inside and closed the door behind them. He led Seanán to the grand circular bed and guided him down. Even after all these visits, Seanán had no idea of the true nature of the material beneath him. It was akin to a silk sheet and yet so different from the fabrics of home. It was soft to the touch and iridescent. Like everything in the Fae realm, it beguiled him. He loved the feel of it against his bare skin.
His name on Iorweth’s lips, uttered in that breathy whisper, sent a thrill running through him, and Seanán trembled. Iorweth reached out and worked at the fastenings on his clothing with nimble fingers. In no time at all, he was stripped of jacket, T-shirt, and jeans, and lay naked upon the bed. The luxurious coverings caressed his back as Iorweth traced feather-light paths over his arms and chest. Then the Fae lord trailed kisses down Seanán’s torso. Every touch of those lips was an exquisite pleasure, and when Iorweth brushed a hand over his aching arousal, Seanán moaned and bucked.
“May I taste you, Seanán?”

How Hercules Got His Bruise by Eva Lefoy
Hercules might have completed his 12 labors and become immortal, but he's still not out to himself. Until he meets Sisyphus, a man who turns him on in ways not even a goddess can compete with. When Zeus threatens to destroy their new bond, Hercules must again rise to the challenge, this time to protect his right to love a man.
How Hercules Got His Bruise Excerpt:
Early morning found Hercules at the edge of the driest, least hospitable spot on Earth. A desert so far in the middle of nowhere, not many had ever passed through. As the sun beat down mercilessly on the parched dry soil, not a bird’s trill came to his ears. But he did hear one sound that repeated itself over and over. A scraping, rolling, and grunting came from up ahead. From this distance, he could just make out the figure of a man toiling with a giant rock at least ten times his size on a steep slope. Intrigued by the feat of strength, Hercules quickened his steps.
As he neared, the image enlarged, filing his vision with a sight so wondrous he dropped his parcel and watched, riveted. The man before him must be Sisyphus, but it wasn’t the Sisyphus he’d imagined. Far from a spindly, weak, lazy former ruler, the goliath pushing the boulder was neither pampered nor soft. He wore only a thin loincloth stretched across rounded tight buttocks. Underneath the fabric, thick muscles moved and bunched as Sisyphus bent to his task, both feet braced on the mountain. Above the finely sculpted ass, a narrow waist and sensuously curved back supported shoulders nearly as massive as Hercules’ own. The corded muscles in these quivered as Sisyphus wrapped his arms around the boulder and heaved. Hercules drew his breath and held it, mildly aware of a tingling low in his groin, as Sisyphus began his uphill journey.
Minutes stretched into hours as Hercules stood mesmerized, forgetting the heat, forgetting his thirst, focused only on Sisyphus’s supple grunting form as he pushed and rested, pushed and rested his way up the slope. About halfway up Sisyphus stopped, bracing the boulder against the side of the hill with a smaller rock that didn’t even appear large enough to hold its weight. But Sisyphus apparently knew what he was doing. He turned, leaned his back against the boulder, and wiped his brow. Then he lifted his face toward the sky.
For the first time, Hercules took in the full glory of Sisyphus. “Oh my god. He’s beautiful.” Pectorals swollen with work stood out proudly from his chest, leaving no flat planes from shoulder to shoulder. Effort-hardened biceps curved in muscular cascades from shoulder caps to elbows, tapering into thick forearms. Beneath his chest, six rows of abdominals rippled proudly with each breath and Hercules found his mouth watering at such perfection.
Even Sisyphus’ tree-trunk thighs were stunning. Each of his sculpted quadriceps bulged, competing with the others for space in a riot of masculine fervor. Hercules couldn’t help imagining those thunderous thighs trembling in passion, couldn’t stop himself from picturing what lay underneath Sisyphus’ loincloth nor what his groans of release might sound like. But the capping grace to the man’s beauty lay in his hair.
