Familiar Love | Book Two

Familiar Love: Book Two

For over a century, Edward Youngblood has been the logical one in a family of temperamental magical beings. But reason has not made him immune to passion, and Edward’s passion for Mullins, the family’s demon instructor, has only grown.

Mullins was lured into hell through desperation—and a fatal mistake. He’s done his best to hang onto his soul in the twisted realm of the underworld, and serving the Youngblood family when summoned has been his only joy. Edward concocts a plan to spring Mullins by collecting a series of items to perform an ancient ritual—an idea that terrifies Mullins. He can’t bear the thought of losing Edward and his brothers to a dangerous quest. 

But every item in their collection is an adventure in brotherhood and magic, and as Mullins watches from the sidelines, he becomes more and more hopeful that they will succeed. When the time comes for Mullins to join the mission, can he find enough faith and hope to redeem himself and allow himself happiness in the arms of a man who would literally go to hell and back—and beyond—to have Mullins by his side?

Bad in Baltimore | Book Six

Bad in Baltimore: Book Six

Life is always looking for ways to screw you over. Scott McDermott survived the foster care system and knows better than to let anyone close, but Liam Walsh is his one vulnerability. 

Twice Scott let down his guard, and twice Liam vanished from Scott’s life. 

So when Scott comes face-to-face with Liam for the first time in six years, he punches Liam in the nose. Only after Scott’s friend—and Baltimore County police officer—Jamie reads him the riot act does Scott discover that in the intervening years Liam has been to war and lost his leg. 

Liam hasn’t had the easiest life either. He took care of his drug-addicted mom when she was unable to take care of herself. He’s fallen in love with Scott twice, but when Liam saw Scott going down the same path as his mother, he left. The lesson that he can’t save everyone has been a painful one for Liam to learn. Maybe what he and Scott had can’t ever be fixed. 

Scott and Liam have never fallen out of love—which becomes obvious when they start working together—but what will make this time any different from all the others? Will the third time really be a charm?

Second Hand

Tucker Springs

A Tucker Springs Novel

Paul Hannon flunked out of vet school. His fiancée left him. He can barely afford his rent, and he hates his house. About the only things he has left are a pantry full of his ex’s kitchen gadgets and a lot of emotional baggage. He could really use a win—and that’s when he meets El.

Pawnbroker El Rozal is a cynic. His own family’s dysfunction has taught him that love and relationships lead to misery. Despite that belief, he keeps making up excuses to see Paul again. Paul, who doesn’t seem to realize that he’s talented and kind and worthy. Paul, who’s not over his ex-fiancée and is probably straight anyway. Paul, who’s so blind to El’s growing attraction, even asking him out on dates doesn’t seem to tip him off.

El may not do relationships, but something has to give. If he wants to keep Paul, he’ll have to convince him he’s worthy of love—and he’ll have to admit that attachment might not be so bad after all.

Can a computer program understand love better than the human heart?

Archer, the AI at the dating service Q*pid, realizes humans don’t always make the best choices, so it begins making some unconventional choices for them.

Fox Kincade is the last of his group of friends to be single, so he’s delighted when he discovers a new match in his Q*pid app—one that, according to the new AI wizardry, should be the love of his life. Instead of the woman he’s expecting, he’s paired with Drew Larsen, a shy, somewhat nerdy PhD student who has also grown discouraged with romance.

Drew and Fox have little in common—aside from the fact that they’re both straight. Or so they thought. But as the guys get to know each other, they realize Archer might have the right idea. Their path isn’t smooth, because both need to overcome every idea they have about themselves and what true love might look like. But with the help of Archer—and some friends who have stuck with Fox and Drew through the thick and thin of their relationship trials—they might find their way into each other’s hearts.

Kann es sein, dass ein Computerprogramm mehr von der Liebe versteht als das menschliche Herz?

Archer, die künstliche Intelligenz hinter der Partnervermittlung Q*pid, stellt fest, dass Menschen nicht immer die besten Entscheidungen treffen. Deshalb mischt er sich ein und übernimmt es für sie, einige wirklich unkonventionelle Entscheidungen zu treffen.

Fox Kincade ist der letzte Single in seinem Freundeskreis. Deshalb freut er sich besonders, als seine Q*pid-App ihm einen Vorschlag präsentiert, mit dem er – wenn man den Hexenkünsten der AI glauben darf – die Liebe seines Lebens finden wird. Doch zu Fox’ Überraschung handelt es sich bei diesem Idealpartner nicht um eine Frau, sondern um Drew Larsen, einen schüchternen und manchmal sonderlichen Doktoranden, der ebenfalls nicht an die wahre Liebe glaubt.

Drew und Fox haben wenig gemeinsam – wenn man von der Tatsache absieht, dass sie beide nicht schwul sind. Jedenfalls dachten sie das bisher. Aber je besser sie sich kennenlernen, umso mehr dämmert ihnen, dass Archer vielleicht gar nicht so falsch lag mit seinem Vorschlag. Es ist kein leichter Weg, denn sie müssen beide ihr althergebrachtes Selbstverständnis aufgeben und sich mit einem neuen Konzept von Liebe vertraut machen. Mit Archers Hilfe und der Unterstützung einiger Freunde, die Fox und Drew durch dick und dünn zur Seite stehen, gelingt es ihnen schließlich, alle Hindernisse aus dem Weg zu räumen.

Il programma di un computer può comprendere l’amore meglio del cuore umano?

Archer, l’intelligenza artificiale del servizio di incontri online Q*pid, è consapevole che gli esseri umani non prendono sempre le decisioni migliori, e per questo motivo comincia a prenderne di bizzarre al posto loro. 

Fox Kincade è l’ultimo scapolo superstite nel suo gruppo di amici ed è al settimo cielo quando scopre di avere un nuovo match sulla sua app di incontri Q*pid: quel match, secondo l’avanzata stregoneria di Archer, dovrebbe essere l’amore della sua vita. Si aspettava una donna, ma si ritrova abbinato a Drew Larsen, un timido dottorando dall’aria un po’ nerd, che come lui ha cominciato a perdere le speranze in amore. 

Drew e Fox hanno poco in comune, a parte il fatto di essere entrambi etero. O così hanno sempre creduto. Tuttavia, mentre imparano a conoscersi, si rendono conto che Archer potrebbe aver avuto l’idea giusta. Il loro percorso non è facile: hanno bisogno di lasciarsi alle spalle l’immagine che hanno sempre avuto di loro stessi e del vero amore, ma con l’aiuto di Archer – e di alcuni amici che sono rimasti loro fedeli durante gli alti e bassi di quella nuova relazione – forse troveranno il modo di intrufolarsi l’uno nel cuore dell’altro.

Un logiciel peut-il mieux comprendre l’amour que le cœur humain ?

Archer, l’intelligence artificielle du site de rencontre Q*pidon, sait que les humains ne prennent pas toujours les meilleures décisions. Il commence alors à en prendre à leur place, même si elles ne sont pas très conventionnelles.

Fox Kincade est le dernier célibataire de son groupe d’amis. Il est ravi de découvrir que l’application Q*pidon a trouvé une personne qui lui correspond – une personne qui, selon la magie de cette nouvelle intelligence artificielle, serait son âme sœur. Quelle n’est pas sa surprise lorsqu’il découvre qu’au lieu de la femme qu’il attendait, il est associé avec Drew Larsen, un doctorant timide et assez geek qui ne croit plus en la romance.

Drew et Fox ont peu de choses en commun – si ce n’est le fait d’être hétérosexuel. Du moins, c’est ce qu’ils ont toujours cru. En apprenant à se connaître, ils se rendent compte qu’Archer ne les a peut-être pas associés par hasard. Le chemin ne sera pas sans embûches puisqu’ils devront dépasser l’image qu’ils se sont construite d’eux-mêmes et de ce que doit être le véritable amour. Mais avec l’aide d’Archer – et de quelques amis qui encourageront Fox et Drew à travers les hauts et les bas de leur relation –, ils pourraient trouver leur chemin vers le cœur de l’autre.
