The Slave Catcher by Lilia Ford


Rating: 8/10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 
Title: The Slave Catcher
Author: Lilia Ford
Genre: M/M Romance
URL: Amazon
Price: US $.99
Other Information/warnings: Explicit M/M erotic content, a master/slave dynamic, BDSM elements, and dubious consent
Summary [from the publisher]:
Star City, best known for its brothels and casinos, is one of the few planets in the quadrant that outlaws slavery—for everyone, that is, except the galaxy bullies, the Borathians. Telepaths and recent conquerors of a backwards planet named Earth, the Borathians are simply too powerful to refuse. A special treaty allows them to bring their pleasure slaves or “bonds” onto the planet, and if one escapes, they have five days to recover him.

Sam Beron, private locator, may have been born on a Maradi space cruiser, but Star City is his home now and he’d say he despises slavery as much as any native. Unfortunately, a run of bad luck at the casino tables leaves him flat broke and scavenging expired military rations out of a neighboring dumpster. Next thing he knows, the Borathians are offering him a fortune to track down one of their escaped bonds, a beautiful Earth boy named Liam. What’s a hungry locator to do?

The Trouble With Elves by Therese Woodson


Rating: 7/10 ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 
Title: The Trouble With Elves
Author: Therese Woodson
Genre: M/M Romance
URL: Dreamspinner Press
Price: US $3.99
Summary [from the publisher]:
Cal Martin loathes Christmas music, especially the clichéd carols pumped through the mall speakers on endless loop. Even worse is the holiday-themed hell of Santa’s Village that looms right in front of the sports store he manages. It’s yet another hurdle for Cal as he tries to survive the world of retail during the soul-sucking holiday season… until he catches a glimpse of one of Santa’s elves and becomes infatuated with the cheery, gorgeous guy dressed in candy-cane tights.

Of course, just walking up to the guy and asking him out isn’t easy, and a botched attempt at matchmaking ends up turning a simple courtship into a mess for the gossip page. What can Cal do to overcome his social ineptitude, correct erroneous assumptions, and maybe have a merry little Christmas of his own?
