One Small Step Jared has had a secret crush for months. But it’s not like publishing genius and gay activist Jensen Ackles is going to notice the tall, weird guy pushing the mail cart. So when Jared’s best friend and Jensen’s assistant, Sandy, tells him that Jensen is getting married in one month to a fellow activist – something about being the first gay couple to get married in the state – Jared knows some things just aren’t meant to be. And now Sandy is insisting that Jared help her plan the wedding. She thinks it’s a good idea. Jared thinks she’s nuts. Because the only thing this could lead to is heartbreak. Right?

Let it be Jensen is an ER nurse who is trying to survive a tragedy. Jared is a firefighter with his own tragic story. Jared’s teenage son’s accident brings them together - but can they overcome their heartbreaking pasts and find happiness together?

Waking Up Married   It’s the morning after his cousin’s bachelor party in Vegas and Jared Padalecki wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, he’s in a stranger’s penthouse having woken up with something else as well—a funny, arrogant, sexy…husband!  Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible—been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few (dozen) drinks and a a couple of body shots with Jason…no, Jensen Ackles and he’s gone from first meet to marriage in one night! When Jared accidentally tells Jensen’s boss they’re married, Jensen’s life becomes a chaotic mess.

Terms of Engagement  This wedding was pretty much guaranteed to be a clusterfuck of monumental proportions even before Jared decided that it would be a good idea to convince a ridiculously good-looking spy to pretend to be his fiancé. Especially when Mr. Hot Spy has his own reasons for being at the resort. Sometimes, Jared makes really bad life choices.

Sometimes It’s Hard to Keep on Running  Jensen’s running from a past he doesn’t want to face. Jared’s moving on in his life, doing what he can for his daughter. What happens when Jensen stops running away from what he wants, and turns toward his future?

My New Life is Waiting  Jared and his daughter Hannah are used to depending only on each other. Their life at the cabin on the lake isn’t exciting, but it’s safe. Until the night Hannah goes outside, drawn by the soft sounds of a guitar. While Jared is drawn to the music, the guitar player is too close for comfort. But something in music inexorably attracts Jared and his little girl, and they finally reach out to their new neighbor. Jensen seems like the perfect guy, and he is the perfect guy. But like Jared, he has secrets to keep and reasons not to trust. Can they move beyond their pasts to make a life together, away from the isolated shores of the lake?

The One That Got Away  Jared was in love with Jensen and things didn’t go as planned. Jensen was closed off and things fell apart. Jared started his life over again, got a great job, a wonderful best friend and finally bought a new condo. When he moved in he was surprised to find out that the building super was, none other than, Jensen.

Laughing Down Lonely Canyons   Jared’s entire life centers around the rodeo, until an injury sidelines him for the rest of the season. And then to complicate things more, he gets guardianship of four-year Cody. Meanwhile, world-weary businessman Jensen heads to his Montana ranch to escape the pressure of his life for a couple of weeks. What he’s not expecting is a bout with pneumonia or falling for his foreman’s little brother.

Pom Poms and Circumstance~EBOOKS   Jared Padalecki and Chad Michael Murray ditch their friends so they can spend the summer surrounded by beautiful girls at cheer camp. The plan works perfectly until Jared realizes he is falling for the gorgeous, and very male head cheerleader, Jensen. Loosely based on Fired Up.

Another Start  This was supposed to be their happily ever after, but life turned out a little differently than they planned. Despite how painful it is, Jared decides to try and reclaim his life and Jensen … well, Jensen just wants Jared back.

The Slow and Steady Rush  Jensen spends his days on the family ranch, bitter and lonely after his stint in the air force. When the friendly stranger Jared arrives as the new ranch hand, can Jensen learn to move past his brooding nature and let Jared in? And more importantly, what secret is Jared hiding that could ruin Jensen’s family forever?

Love at First Fight Jensen Ackles was not what department store owner Jared Padalecki expected his newest security guard to look like. He was obviously far too young and, well…not exactly blessed in the height department. Surely there were far more suitable jobs for the pretty young man to be doing. Jared had an opening for a pool boy…  Jensen couldn’t believe his bad luck. Not only had he acted like a blithering idiot in front of the most gorgeous man he’d ever laid eyes on, but that man had just turned out to be his boss. Things surely couldn’t get any worse

Cherish Many years before six boys had sworn they would always be together, despite differing backgrounds and outside pressures, but one summer something happened to change that. Jared, Tom and Steve had eventually left Cherish, Texas to follow their dreams - but not their hearts - and Jensen, Mike and Chris had settled in to make what lives they could for themselves in a town that didn’t want them but that they couldn’t leave. Now the past is rearing its ugly head and three men are coming home to find answers that had been denied them and to claim the men that they’d never stopped believing belonged with them. Cherish’s most beloved sons have been out in the wide world for a long time and they’ve got a few tricks up their sleeves - and no intention of taking no for any answer this time. Jensen, Mike and Chris - and Cherish - aren’t going to know what’s hit them!

Awaiting on You  Shy, awkward Jensen Ackles attends his sister’s debut party and is saved from the unwanted advances of Lady Jessica Alba by the dashing Jared Padalecki. He is grateful, especially when Jared makes an effort to befriend him and bring him out of his shell. Little does he suspect that Jared has an agenda of his own.

You Can’t Quantify Love  Jared Padalecki has started a new life as a Ph.D. student, hoping it will help him forget how Jensen Ackles broke his heart. It seems to be working until Jensen shows up where Jared least expects it.

Sunshine and Raindrops  Jensen is sort of oblivious, Jared a good guy and Mike is just too greedy.

If You’ll Say You’re Mine, I’ll Say I’m Yours  At a charity auction, Jensen Ackles wins a date with Jared Padalecki, the head nurse at the county hospital, the winning bid a birthday present from his closest friends. Jensen is shy, but Jared’s dimpled smile and earnest eyes charm him effortlessly, and a simple date leads to more than either expected.

You Can Help Yourself, But Don’t Take Too Much  Coming to the rescue of handsome nurse Jared Padalecki when someone tried to murder him wasn’t the encounter Dr. Jensen Ackles had in mind when he first set eyes on him. Given that he recognized Jared’s attackers, coupled with the chilling death threats, he knew the attack wasn’t random. Although Jensen was an expert at covering up his tragic past, clues proved Jared’s attack was connected to Jensen’s former life. But as much as he wanted the sexy brunet in his bed, Jensen didn’t want to admit he was connected in any way to who or what was endangering Jared’s life. Will either of them live long enough to pursue their new romance?

In the Eye of the Beholder  Excerpts from the baby book of Felicity Jaide Ackles. He gained a daughter and lost a wife. He gained a daughter and found a family.

Where the Heart Is   Chicago cop Jensen Ackles returns to his Oklahoma hometown after the death of his father, with his young son in tow and a chip on his shoulder about all things love. But his work isn’t so easily left behind, and love isn’t so easily dismissed when Jared Padalecki comes back into his life.

The Wedding Planner’s Best Man Wedding Planner Jared takes on his high school crush, Jensen Ackles’ best friends’ wedding in which he’s the best man. When they see each other again, old feelings are stirred up and couture, cake and confusion ensue.

Lazarus Rising  On his way to order wedding announcements for his and his partner’s upcoming nuptials, Jared come face-to-face with his past–in the form of devilish good looks and deep green eyes. There’s no mistaking it. He is Jared’s Jensen; the same Jensen who had died 10 years ago, and had taken a piece of Jared’s heart with him.

It’s so easy loving you (There’s nothing else I wanna do)  Jensen looks up then and stares. Open mouthed and all that. He must look quite idiotic, sitting on the stairs with a kitten hanging from his little finger, mouth open and eyes wide. Because, holy hell, is that really Jared Padalecki standing there?

Making Opportunities LA event planner Jared doesn’t take many trips back to his small, Midwestern hometown these days, but when his first crush, Jensen, is in need of his services, Jared can’t resist the urge to drop everything and drive half way across the country. Now he has one week to raise thousands of dollars, save a youth center, and show Jensen exactly what he missed out on all those years ago.

Home Is Where the Hurt Is  Librarian Jensen Ackles has been secretly in love with cattle rancher Jared Padalecki since high school, but Jared’s been pining after the Big Oil socialite that got away. When said socialite returns to their small town newly single, Jared decides to finally woo her by having Jensen teach him how to be a proper gentleman. Jensen never could say no to those stupid dimples.

Off the Menu Jared is an injured kid wandering down the side of the road the first time Jensen meets him. He brings Jared back to Baby’s, his father’s diner, to help. As they grow up, they become close friends, but just when Jensen is beginning to realize his feelings for Jared may be more than friendly, Jared disappears. Years later, Jared returns to his diner, but he’s not alone. Every night, he comes in escorted by a different john, and Jensen quietly aches for the boy he fell in love with.

Real Slow  The stripteasing on stage at conventions is a joke, until Jensen gets drunk and sends a private video to Jared. Then it’s not so funny anymore.

Deception Bay While trying to enjoy his honeymoon-turned-solo-vacation, Jensen’s party for one is literally crashed by a handsome, mysterious stranger who saves his life. Before he knows it, he’s thrown into a world of danger…and passion like he’s never dreamed.

Some Things Stay the Same It just feels like more bad luck when Jared’s car breaks down in the middle of a thunderstorm. But when the Good Samaritan who brings him in from the rain turns out to be Jensen, his best friend from childhood, things start to look up. For Jensen, seeing Jared again after so many years could be the best chance he’s had yet to get everything he’s ever wanted.

Love Burns Jensen is a firefighter with a close knit group of friends. One night, he’s called to fight a fire at a friend’s house and he witnesses a murder. Only he doesn’t remember. His best friend, Detective Jared Padalecki, decides Jensen needs his protection. Over the course of the investigation, Jared and Jensen realize their feelings for each other have changed. They are growing closer, but will a murderer intent on killing Jensen halt their burgeoning relationship in its tracks?

That a Broken Bone in Your Pocket, Or You Just Happy to See Me? Jensen Ackles is a physical therapist who couldn’t give less of a crap when he’s assigned to help Chicago’s hottest basketball player recover from a wrecked knee.

Perfect (For You)   Jared forgot about his high-school crush long ago. At least he thought he did, until fate and his best friend Gen conspire to throw him in now-movie-star Jensen’s path once more. Transforming his geeky persona into a well-built, somewhat-less-geeky one, Jared quickly wins the attention of the one man he never thought would be interested in him. But Jared doesn’t know if it’s the real him that Jensen sees, or just an illusion.

Love In Plain Sight  Former bounty hunter Jensen Ackles is not the guy social worker Jared Padalecki wants helping him. But finding a kid who’s been missing for a long time takes priority over his personal preferences. And if anyone help Jared can locate the child, Jensen can—even with his injury. So Jared is willing to overlook Jensen’s attitude… and the fact that he’s the most attractive guy he’s come across in long time.

I Think I Love You (But I Don’t Even Know You)  After five years away on his mating quest, Jensen is forced to return home mateless and marry his best friend so he can become Alpha of his pride.  In an ironic twist of fate, it is back at home that he finally finds his mate in the least acceptable person possible: Jared Padalecki, an outcast and half-breed.

When Worlds Collide  Jensen didn’t trust the Teeg, mankind’s ‘Salvation’ and he certainly didn’t trust their Enforcers. Then Jared enters his life, an oddity, a human Enforcer in a mostly Teeg dominated profession. Is this Enforcer any different, and can Jensen trust him with the dangerous knowledge he is carrying? More importantly, can he trust him with his heart?

«The kiss started out clumsy, messy, and rough, more teeth and force than lips and tongue. Jared’s mind was throbbing red, anger and passion mixing and making him dizzy with lust, frantic with need. Jared grabbed Jensen by the shoulders and dragged him up against his chest, Jensen yielded and let Jared take control of the kiss. He licked into Jensen’s mouth, tongue sweeping over Jensen’s and flicking up to tease the roof of his mouth. Jensen’s short beard was softer than expected as it rasped over Jared’s five o’clock shadow, a delicious contrast against the full, plush wetness of Jensen’s lips. » I was drooling over this scene SO MUCH hahahahaha

Just. LOOK AT IT.
