1. My Funny Demon Valentine by Aurora Ascher
Asmodeus, Prince of Hell, just wants to play music. Jazz, specifically.
Unfortunately, he’s a demon, and he’s supposed to be evil. A career as a musician isn’t exactly an option.
And he’s cursed, to top it all off.
Sick of playing by the rules, Ash and his brothers escape Hell in search of freedom on Earth, only to discover it’s harder than they thought to keep their enemies off their tail. The four rogues quickly become the Underworld’s Most Wanted, and if they’re caught…
The consequences will be dire.
Everything changes for Ash when he meets a beautiful violinist who can see through his curse. It must be too good to be true, but he can’t resist the temptation.
No matter the risk, he has to have her.
Evangeline Gregory is just your average human. She works at a jazz bar, plays gigs on weekends…
And, apparently, hallucinates demons.
At least, that’s what she tells herself happens when, moments after she meets the man of her dreams, she sees him shift into a seven-foot-tall, red-skinned monster.
Not believing her own eyes, Eva decides to investigate and soon finds herself caught in the middle of a supernatural clusterf**k of epic proportions. But Ash isn’t the only one keeping secrets, and the search for answers reveals a shocking truth that will change the course of her life forever.
Or maybe just doom it.
My Funny Demon Valentine is a steamy paranormal romance about learning how to love (and what love is in the first place) with an HEA, clothes-ripping-hot love scenes, and a crew of devilish demon brothers who are supposed to be the bad guys.
There’s violence, graphic sex, and too much swearing. You’ve been warned.
2. Cupid by Demelza Carlton
As a Cupid, Orel has plenty of experience helping other people find love, even if he’s unlucky in that department. But when he ends up covering for another Cupid at a speed dating event for singles in the leadup to Valentine’s Day, he dares to hope.
Can a lonely Cupid find love?
Or will he fall victim to the Cupid curse, too?
3. The Love Monster by Jeanette Lynn
It all started with a cookie that said Be Mine.
Well, actually, it all started with a towering, horned, purple mountain of a male in a hurry, rushing through a detour on his way to work, nearly plowing down a small human woman, Mim, who was out trying to promote her little shop on The Port, decked out in a cute little heart print apron. The woman dressed like she’s Cupid incarnate? That’s Fran, Mim’s best friend. We’ll get to her later.
And with one well-meaning gift and a sweet love note to go with, addressed as if it was from Mim but actually written by Fran, the gifts start to show up and the fun really starts.
That little note and box of heart-shaped chocolates is just enough hope to give Juhntinor the courage to go for it, and he does, wholeheartedly, like only a demon-looking alien warrior male with a translator hiccup who is bound from the more aggressive courting traditions of his homeworld can.
And thus, the love monster is born.
4. Cookies for My Orc Neighbor by Michele Mills
The big green Orc living next door to me is so very mysterious.
He works from home and rarely goes outside. And when he does go out, he never wears a shirt buttoned over his massive chest, no matter the weather. Small children and senior citizens run screaming when he stomps to his truck, so I guess I understand his reticence?
But today is Valentine’s Day and I’m worried the big guy is sad and lonely. My neighbor is more angry-looking and growly than usual, despite that darling puppy he recently adopted.
And since I happen to be alone this Valentine’s Day too, I decide to bring him a plate of my famous sugar cookies.
Everyone warns me not to disturb him because Orcs always claim their Brides in the dark of winter.
But for some reason, this doesn’t worry me at all.

6. Cupcakes for My Orc Enemy by Honey Phillips
One very large orc. One very small human. Does size matter?
When Elara flees corporate life to open a coffee shop in the small southern town of Fairhaven Falls, the last thing she is looking for is a relationship. But when she meets Grondar, the gruff orc owner of the bakery next door, sparks fly. Literally.
Grondar has been burned by human females before. He has no intention of letting the feisty little female next door get under his skin – no matter how attractive he finds her. And it certainly doesn’t mean he’s going to let her get away with sabotaging his business.
Despite their disastrous first meeting, Elara still finds herself having inappropriately heated thoughts about the massive orc next door. The attraction seems to be completely one-sided – until he reluctantly comes to her rescue and she discovers a very different side to the grumpy male.
Can they overcome their initial animosity, their ongoing rivalry, and their very obvious differences to find a future together?

8. Her Monstrous Valentines by Honor St. Jean
I summoned a monster who can only be banished after he makes me feel good. Really good.
All I wanted was some tea after a hard day, but the recipe in my grandmother’s book turned out to be a spell. One minute I’m alone. The next, I’ve summoned a minotaur. The only way to send him back? He has to bring me to a screaming release.
When the family’s protective elf catches wind of all the noise we’re making and comes running, I quickly learn that three is not a crowd.
Unfortunately, I come from a long line of monster hunters and while I refuse to participate in the barbaric hunt, my family still practices it religiously. When they find out about my lovers, I’m forced to choose–find a way to protect them from my family or banish them from the human realm forever.
Her Monstrous Valentines is a fun and sexy MFM monster novella, with light BDSM, dark themes, and a guaranteed HEA.
9. Signs of Cupidity by Raven Kennedy
You’d think that basically being in charge of love would be an epic job, right? Wrong. Sure, I can blow some Lust into people’s faces and watch the show, but I can’t actually participate. It gets old, trust me. Same goes for love. I can pass it out like sugar-free lollipops at a dentist’s office, but I can’t get any love for myself. It totally sucks.
I used to consider myself a hopeless romantic, so why wouldn’t I choose to become a cupid? Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong again. They don’t call us stupid cupids for nothing. I’m stuck in this never-ending afterlife where I’m invisible, lonely, and bitter as hell. And yeah, I’m probably responsible for some terrible matchmaking out there. Sorry, not sorry.
All my bad cupid’ing might be why I was exiled from the human realm. You can only do so much before the cupid bosses get all huffy. Unfortunately, my bitterness carried over into the new realm, and then I attacked a fae prince with Love Arrows. Accidentally. Okay, not accidentally. But hey, he deserved it. What I didn’t expect was for him to retaliate and hit my ass with some crazy magic mojo strong enough to push me into the physical realm. Whoa.
That’s right. This cupid just got a real body. And you know what that means…Now, it’s my turn to get some. Love, I mean. Get your head out of the gutter. Wink, wink bitches.
Author’s Note: This is a slow-burn why choose fae-fantasy story, where the FMC will end up with multiple mates. It includes explicit language and sexual situations. Intended for audiences 18 years and older. This series is complete.
10. Stupid Cupid by Maeve Black
Val has never considered love real.
Not tangible, not attainable, nothing more than fiction.
Until he came along.
Pyro didn’t plan to fall in love.
He didn’t have time to until a stubborn cupid shot into his life like an arrow soaring through the sky.
Now, he wants to prove to Valentine that love is real and Pyro won’t give up on him no matter what.
