A Picture Perfect Holiday by Z. A. Maxfield
Contemporary M/M Holiday
“Then Christian snatches that camera from them while it’s in midair, one handed, like a snake” —Caleb’s hand shot out to demonstrate— “and throws his arm around my shoulders. He doesn’t smile at me or anything.”
“Aw.” Erin, having heard all this before, is texting with someone. “So sweet.”
“But he says, ‘Don’t let those clowns get to you. They’re just jealous because you have something nice and you’re not afraid of what people will say.’”
“And you say, ‘But now I am afraid.’” Erin looked up at him.
“And he says to me, “Don’t be. I got your back.’”

Contemporary Historical M/M, Holiday
Rafe Colman's likes his life. He has a nice home, a good job, and a wonderful dog. But he's exhausted by living a lie. When his home is vandalized because of his perceived German ancestry, he can't even share the irony with friends.
Officer Ben Morgan falls for Rafe's dog first, but it isn't long before he's giving her owner the eye. He thinks they have more in common than the search for Rafe's vandals, and he's willing to take a chance and find out.
If life in 1955 is tough on a cop in the closet, it's even tougher on a refugee who's desperate to hide his roots and fit in. Rafe knows from tragic experience how vicious prejudice can be. Every second with Ben is stolen, every kiss fraught with danger.
When Ben's partner threatens to ruin everything, Rafe and Ben have to fight to protect what they have, in Secret Light...

A Crossing Borders Story
Loose Id Publsihing
Contemporary M/M, Holiday
Michael and Tristan are finally taking that much needed weekend away for Christmas. They’ve been working so hard at their respective careers there hasn’t been time for a breather, much less a chance to reconnect and see if they’ve been working toward what they both want.
Like always, Michael’s well-laid plan is derailed by a phone call from Apple House. Three of their charges have gone missing and while Michael is worried, it’s not unusual for the young adults who stay at the shelter for homeless LGBT teens to come and go.
But when one of them calls Michael and asks if – hypothetically speaking – it’s considered kidnapping to keep a baby who’s been abandoned, Michael and Tristan head home with all speed to sort things out.
I Heard Him Exclaim by Z. A. Maxfield

Who Likes a Skinny Santa?
Steve Adams’s heart hasn’t been in the Christmas spirit ever since doctors put a stent in it and ordered him to clean up his act. No longer filling out his Santa suit or allowed to make merry, he’s forgoing the holidays this year and heading to Vegas to indulge in the few vices left to him: gambling and anonymous sex.
His road trip takes a detour when he encounters Chandler Tracey, who’s just inherited guardianship of his five-year-old niece. Overwhelmed, Chandler’s on his way to deliver Poppy to his parents. But fate has other plans and, after car trouble, Chandler and Poppy accept a ride home with Steve. Though the heat between the two men is obvious, they put it on simmer while they band together to make Poppy’s Christmas as perfect as possible.
Steve soon comes to believe that while Chandler is the right person to look after Poppy, Someone needs to look after Chandler. Fortunatly, Steve knows just the man for the job.
