When a casual hookup turns into the potential for love, staid Spencer realizes he wants to build a life with vibrant Emilio.

When twenty-two-year-old Emilio Sanchez sees handsome Spencer Derdinger walking by his construction site, Emilio makes it his goal to seduce the shy professor. Getting Spencer into bed isn’t difficult, but Emilio soon learns that earning the trust of a man deeply hurt will take time and patience. With a prize like brilliant, sweet Spencer on the line, Emilio decides he is strong enough to face the challenge.

Spencer is surprised when he’s approached by the gorgeous construction worker he’s admired from the safety of his office window. Acting spontaneously for the first time in his thirty-eight years, Spencer takes Emilio home. When the casual hookup turns into the potential for love, Spencer realizes that if he wants to build a life with Emilio, he’ll need to be strong enough to slay his personal demons and learn to trust again.

Love at First Sight

Listen to a clip!

The moment naïve, optimistic Jonathan Doyle glimpses a gorgeous blue-eyed stranger from afar, he believes in love at first sight. Unfortunately, he loses sight of the man before they meet and then spends years desperately trying to find him. Just as he is about to give up, Jonathan gets a break and finally encounters David Miller face to face.
Successful, confident David turns Jonathan’s previously lonely life into a fairy tale, giving him more than he ever imagined. But the years spent searching were hard on Jonathan, and he’s terrified his young son and scandalous past will destroy his blossoming relationship. For David and Jonathan to build a future together, they’ll both have to dig deep: David for the courage to share himself in a way he’s never considered and Jonathan for the strength to tell the truth.

    10 bits of random trivia, with narrator Greg Tremblay   I actually studied acting in college, along with opera; but got a degree in Computer Science. My recording booth itself is only 3’ x 5’ x 6’ . . . so when I read MM romance, I go INTO the closet.  Ironic, no? It takes between 5 and 7 hours of total production time with the finished manuscript to create 1 hour of final audio.  Fiction Audio reads at about 9800 words per hour. In addition to voice acting, I have been a Whale Watching guide, a Paramedic, and a Farrier (shoeing horses) I rarely, if ever, listen to a complete book again once the production is finished.  By the time I am […]


Not Quite So Strange! Strange Bedfellows by Cardeno C.

Not Quite So Strange! Strange Bedfellows by Cardeno C.

    Ford Hollingsworth, Republican congressman from Missouri and from a family with a long political history, is coming to terms with his sexuality. When he has a chance encounter one night with Trevor Moga, Ford begins a relationship for the first time that will radically change his life. See, Trevor’s the son of the President of the United States and Dad’s a Democrat.   I expected Trevor and Ford to have the usual dilemmas associated with two powerful political families on opposite sides of the aisle but it wasn’t that kind of story. The focus was on their developing relationship from a more personal perspective. Being in a committed relationship was new for Trevor and Ford hadn’t come out to anyone yet.   Ford […]

    Sometimes you just need a good, short, insta-love story and this one works. Hawk Black’s a unique-styled Alpha, one who’s not beating his chest, just stepping up and taking control of a new relationship to move it forward, and fast! Clint Rivera is a nice guy who’s ready for a committed, romantic relationship but, until Hawk, has settled for lonely or the last jerkwad who was only interested in closeted sex. Loved Clint and was utterly charmed by Hawk. Yes, it was a bit fast but it was SO feel good. It’s steamy yet romantic and just the perfect interlude I was looking for in the moment. No angst, no misunderstandings…just two people who were lucky to find each other at the right […]

Simon Moorehead is an exiled Omega wolf without a pack who returns to Blue Mountain after many years. Alpha wolf Mitch Grant recognizes him as his mate and prevents him from being attacked for being on pack territory and brings him to his home. This was an incredibly endearing story. Mitch is an Alpha wolf, twin of the pack Alpha Frederick, and chooses to support his brother rather than lead his own. He’s led a lonely, solitary existence and his excitement at finding his mate is short lived when Simon rejects him out of fear. Mitch spends the next few weeks subordinating his nature while waiting for Simon to heal and learn to trust him. The lengths to which Mitch went to care and nurture […]

Quick summary Heart surgeon Jason Garcia doesn’t believe in relationships. After his divorce (when he finally had to acknowledge he was gay), he’s only subscribed to sexual hookups, one-nighters as a means to reduce stress. That is until he connects with Abe Green, a sensitive man whose values and ideals are almost polar opposite of Jason’s.   What I really liked Abe! I just adored him. He was the perfect opposite of Jason, who at least had enough sense to recognize his special qualities and sweet nature. I also loved the strong family themes that were pervasive in this story…Abe’s relationship with his family, Jason’s with his ex-wife and children, and the new relationships formed when they became a couple. Jason wasn’t all that likable […]

Welcome Cardeno C. to The Book Nympho! CC is the talented romance author of several series, including Home, Mates and Family. Today, the first book in the new Hope series is being released. Jonetta: Before we go further, what’s in a name…why did you decide to use an initial for your last name? Has it presented any unique challenges? CC: I probably should have put more thought into my name, but it was pretty spontaneous. It’s a combination of something from my childhood, something I generally like, and [these two were really the key factors:] something with an available website and gmail address. So there you have the dirty secret to my pen name: availability. And as far as the letter for the last name, […]


You’ll Fall for Jared in McFarland’s Farm by Cardeno C.

Quick summary Lucas Reitz is a party boy who tested his wealthy restaurateur father one time too many. Dad gave him the ultimatum of losing access to his money or going to Jared McFarland’s farm, his organic produce supplier in Arizona. See, the thing is, Lucas has always lusted after Jared, unbeknownst to anyone, including Jared…and vice versa.   What I adored about this story Jared. How could you not? He’s a big, red-haired, lovable guy who was hard working, a little lonely and respectful of everyone. Even when faced with Lucas’s rudeness and bad behavior, Jared still found a way to deal with dignity and humbleness. Lest I paint too nasty a picture of Lucas (which he earned), just know that once you read […]
