“SMITTEN”  By Maris Black (SSU BOYS BOOK #2)

Two boys. One house.

Something’s bound to happen.

Coming Soon – Late May 2014

Dan Fisher is a fun-loving slacker from SSU with a passion for partying and dancing. When rich girl Avery Wakefield offers him a brand new designer wardrobe in exchange for posing as her boyfriend, he reluctantly agrees. He hates lying, but it’s hard to turn down nice clothes and a chance to live in a historic mansion in Savannah for two weeks. What he doesn’t count on is falling hard for her mysterious, straight brother.

Julian Wakefield is as tortured as he is handsome. He keeps a secret close to his heart, and everyone else at a distance. But now his sister’s new boyfriend is stirring up feelings he’s always been able to deny. Like an angel and the devil all rolled into one, he tempts him to take chances he never would have taken before. Too bad Dan belongs to his sister, whom he would never dream of betraying.

But… put two hot boys with an irresistible attraction in the same house for long enough, something is bound to happen.



INITIATION By Maris Black (An SSU Boys Short)

Approx. 70 pages

Latino linebacker Emilio Madero has a huge crush on the new backup quarterback. He’s perfection in motion with his lean, muscled body and rich boy good looks. But there’s no way in hell Emilio is going to do anything about it. He’ll just have to be content with fantasizing about the guy of his dreams and watching him from afar, because hitting on another player is out of the question.

That is, until Andrew turns the tables and makes the first move. Then all bets are off as the two of them drift into uncharted territory.




PINNED By Maris Black  (SSU BOYS BOOK #1)

Two hot college wrestlers take it off the mat. One is afraid to risk his future… the other, his heart. When outside forces threaten to take them down, who will risk everything?

All Jeremy Miller can think about is getting away from his abusive home life, making the wrestling team, and finally getting a real boyfriend. He’s sick of being used by high school football players who are too afraid to admit they like guys. What he doesn’t count on is losing his heart to the gorgeous, golden-eyed captain of the wrestling team…

Or having to keep their hot, sweaty nights a secret at all costs.

With a wrestling scholarship, a shot at a national title, and a guaranteed spot in an elite sports medicine program, Beck has got it made. Yeah, he’s gay and wishing he didn’t have to hide it, but there will be plenty of time for dating after graduation. Until then, he doesn’t need anything to get in the way of his big plans. Not even the adorable freshman wrestler he can’t stop pinning to the mattress every chance he gets.

It just feels so right when they’re together… How could they ever imagine the horrific turn of events that will rip them apart, body and soul?



About the Author

Maris Black lives in the Southern United States. In college, she majored in English and discovered the joys of creative writing and literary interpretation. After honing her skills discovering hidden meanings authors probably never intended, she collected her English degree and got a job at a newspaper. But she soon figured out that small town reporting wasn’t going to pay the bills, so she went to work in the medical field. Logical progression, right? But no matter what she did, the self-proclaimed compulsive plotter couldn’t stop writing fiction.

“The M/M genre feels sort of like coming home,” she says. “I can’t quite explain it. I’ve always had openly gay and bisexual friends and relatives, the rights and acceptance of whom are very important to me, so it feels great to celebrate that. But there’s also something so pure and honest about the love between two men that appeals to me and inspires me to write.”
