He recovers under the tender ministrations of Jack, an Australian ex-pat who works nights at a pineapple cannery. Together they search for clues to Patrick’s identity, but without success. Soon that forgotten past seems less and less important as Jack and Patrick—now known as Buddy—build a new life together.

But the past comes crashing in when Patrick’s brother travels to Thailand looking for him… and demands Patrick return to Los Angeles, away from Jack and the only world familiar to him. The attention also causes trouble for Jack, and to make their way back to each other, Patrick will need to find not only himself, but Jack as well, before everything is lost….

When a series of personal crises prompt risk-averse research librarian Aaron Templeton to apply for a job on the other side of the country, nobody is more surprised than he is. He nearly runs home before the final interview except for one little problem: he has no home anymore. He put his condo on the market before he left California and it’s already sold. Only an encounter with free-spirited Connecticut native Cody Brown at the Mystic Seaport Museum staves off Aaron’s incipient panic attack.

Cody loves nothing better than introducing newcomers to the great features of his beloved home state, and when the newbie in question is a rumpled professorial type with the saddest blue eyes on the planet? Score! The attraction between the two men deepens as they explore Cody’s favorite spots, but when difficulties arise and Aaron’s insecurities threaten to overwhelm him, will Cody’s love be enough to keep him in Mystic?

 

States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

But the last thing Tommy wants is to go alone, so he invites Grayson and his son, Petey, along.

Beautiful Bonaire lends itself to romance, and along with close quarters, relaxing on the water, and a matchmaking kid, Tommy and Grayson soon find themselves closer than ever… and considering more, much to Grayson’s delight.

A Harmony Ink Press Title

Tired of being the butt of jokes about his biracial heritage and his mother’s alcoholism, fifteen-year-old Brodie isolates himself from most of the other kids in his school. Often at odds with his father following his parents’ divorce, Brodie’s entire support network consists of his girlfriend, Fawn, and best friend, Abel. Things begin to look up for him after he is transferred to the classroom of a charismatic, handsome young English teacher, Mr. Dakota.

Unfortunate circumstances temporarily take Fawn and Abel out of Brodie's life. With few others to turn to, Brodie forms a bond with the kind and intelligent Mr. Dakota—a man who has experienced his own share of pain and rejection. But feelings of friendship gradually evolve into unrequited emotions and desires Brodie doesn’t understand and isn’t sure how to handle. Acting on his feelings will lead to catastrophic consequences for both him and Mr. Dakota… if Brodie cannot learn to move on with his life before it’s too late.

Bad in Baltimore: Book Four

Can a future be built from pieces of a broken past?

Jordan Barnett is dead, killed as much by the rejection of his first love at his moment of greatest need as by his ultraconservative parents’ effort to deprogram the gay away.

In his place is Silver, a streetwise survivor who’s spent the last three years becoming untouchable… except to those willing to pay for the privilege. He’s determined not to let betrayal find him again, and that means never forging bonds that can be broken.

No matter how hard he tried, Zebadiah Harris couldn’t outrun his guilt over abandoning his young lover—not even by leaving the country. Now, almost the moment he sets foot back in Baltimore, he discovers Silver on a street corner in a bad part of town. His effort to make amends lands them both in jail, where Silver plans a seductive form of vengeance. But using a heart as a stepping-stone is no way to move past the one man he can’t forgive, let alone forget….

Un libro della serie Storie dalla contea di Lancaster

Eddie Graber sogna di fondare un rifugio per animali bisognosi, ma quel sogno è messo a rischio quando il suo partner lo pianta in asso. Ora Eddie rischia di perdere la fattoria che ha appena comprato nella contea di Lancaster e di veder sfumare le sue speranze prima ancora di aver avviato il progetto. Ha bisogno di aiuto, ha bisogno di soldi ma, più di ogni altra cosa, ha bisogno di ritrovare la fede in quel fine superiore che lo aveva motivato fin dall’inizio. 

Malgrado la propria disabilità fisica, Samuel Miller si è spezzato la schiena per integrarsi nella comunità amish in cui vive. Quando suo padre scopre che è gay, lo frusta e lo caccia via. Con nient’altro che una manciata di banconote in tasca, Samuel risponde a un annuncio e si ritrova in una fattoria gestita da un forestiero. L’uomo tratta gli animali in modo bizzarro, non ha la minima idea di come si mandi avanti una fattoria ma possiede un cuore grande e gentile.

Samuel non è l’unica anima sperduta che il destino ha condotto alla Meadow Lake Farm. Ci sono anche le mucche Fred e Ginger – che vivevano rinchiuse in un garage – un gruppetto di pecore e un maialino di nome Benny, che potrebbe dare una lezioncina agli umani sul segreto della vita, dell’amore e della felicità. E potrebbe essere proprio lui a mostrare a Eddie e a Samuel la via per il lieto fine.

On dit que les opposés s’attirent, mais est ce qu’il est intelligent de céder à cette attraction ?

Le bibliothécaire Tristan Cooper n’arrive pas à rester à l'écart de Phillip, motard rebelle et sexy – l’homme est splendide –, mais Phillip le trouve forcément studieux et ennuyeux, comme tous les petits amis de Tristan. Pourtant, il rêve d’explorer son côté sauvage, cette part de lui même qu’il ne s’autorise à vivre que dans ses fantasmes, et peut être que Phillip le débauché est exactement la personne qu’il lui faut pour se sentir libre.

Phillip, coiffeur, et sexuellement expérimenté, croit aux fins heureuses plutôt qu’aux fins heureuses jusqu’à la fin de ses jours. L’expérience lui a appris à ne pas espérer plus, jusqu’à ce qu’il rencontre le doux et vulnérable Tristan, qui semble sincèrement s’intéresser à son cœur. Mais Phillip ne se fait pas suffisamment confiance pour être l’homme que Tristan voudrait plus d’une nuit.

Avec l’aide d’un couple de grands pères cupidons, Tristan et Phillip pourraient trouver le courage de sortir de leur zone de confort pour découvrir ce qui leur a manqué toute leur vie.

A Collaborations Novel

Texas artist Tucker Williams arrives in New York City for a gallery showing of his work and finds the city blanketed in snow. He meets free-spirited underwear model Calvin McIntire on the steps of the Midtown library and is captivated by a wild beauty that manages to compete with the demons that occupy his soul and fuel his work with their lust for blood and erotic imagery.

Unable to deny a new inspiration, Tucker sublets a studio and finds the city’s energy almost as addictive as Calvin.

Tucker is obsessive, barely holding on to sanity as his art consumes him, and Calvin is dealing with demons of his own, trying desperately to protect his soul in a business where only his appearance has value. They each prove to be the perfect remedy for the other’s personal brand of crazy until, in the midst of stress and exhaustion, they discover that a promise Calvin needs is the one thing Tucker can’t give him, and their heaven turns to purgatory.

Can both men find a path toward wholeness in Tucker’s beautiful but chaotic Texas home? In order for them—and their passionate relationship—to thrive, they’ll need to adapt, share their psychoses, and find a true balance between New York City and rural Texas.

Buch 2 in der Serie – Verschlungene Träume

Der Missbrauch durch einen Dom hat Orion Gordon jede Freude an BDSM geraubt und sein Selbstvertrauen zerstört. Er bezweifelt, dass er je wieder Frieden durch Unterwerfung finden wird. Doch tief in seinem Innern lebt die Sehnsucht weiter.

Marcus Sadir liebt Hunter Dixon, jedoch kann er das eine nicht sein, was Hunter sich wirklich wünscht: ein Sub, der sich von ihm beherrschen lässt. Hunter wiederum findet in den sadistischen Aspekten von BDSM keine Befriedigung, während Marcus nichts mehr genießt, als Schmerzen zuzufügen und zu teilen. Marcus ist überzeugt, dass sie sich einen Dritten für eine dauerhafte Dreierbeziehung suchen sollten. Und als Hunter seinem Drängen schließlich nachgibt, stellen sie fest, dass Orion der Schlüssel zur Überbrückung ihrer Differenzen sein und sie auf einer tieferen Ebene miteinander vereinen könnte.

Aber zuerst müssen sie Orion helfen, sein Trauma so weit zu überwinden, dass er neue Facetten von BDSM wieder genießen kann. Ihr Weg zu einem gemeinsamen Ganzen wird nicht ohne Herausforderungen sein. Kann Orion genug Vertrauen aufbauen, um den Versuch zu wagen?

Mike Gauliet could be a world-class swimmer if he took better care of himself. He’s too good to let go, so his team coach calls in a private trainer, up-and-coming hardass Jessy Turner. Jessy locks Mike down, putting him on a strict regimen of diet and exercise that Mike resents a lot until he realizes the changes are making him a better swimmer.

Jessy finds Mike all but irresistible but keeps his distance and remains professional, focusing all his attention on what’s best for Mike and his career. The two of them resist their attraction to each other for as long as they can, but eventually they have to give into the heat between them.

When things go wrong, though, can they, and their sports careers, survive the strain?

I’m about to do something huge, and it could change... everything.

I met Matt in second grade, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We went to the same schools, studied at the same college. When we both got jobs in the same town, we shared an apartment. And when my life took an unexpected turn, Matt was there for me. Every milestone in my life, he was there to share it. And what’s really amazing? After all these years, we’re still the best of friends.

Which brings me to this fragile, heart-stopping moment: I want to tell him I love him, really love him, but I’m scared to death of what he’ll say. If I’ve got this all wrong, I’ll lose him—forever.

Weber Yates’s Traum berühmt zu werden, ist im Begriff, sich auf einen Job als Ranchhelfer in Texas zu reduzieren. Seine einzige Beziehung besteht zu einem Mann, der für ihn eigentlich so weit außerhalb seiner Reichweite ist wie der Mond. Oder zumindest wie San Fransisco, wo Weber einen Zwischenstopp einlegt. Er will ihn ein letztes Mal sehen, bevor er sich mit dem einfachen, einsamen Leben abfindet, dass ein Frosch wie er seiner Meinung nach verdient hat.

Cyrus Benning ist ein erfolgreicher Neurochirurg. Details entgehen ihm daher nie. Vom ersten Tag an hat er den Prinz in der Kleidung des gescheiterten Bullenreiters erkannt. Doch dabei zuzusehen, wie Web ihn stets auf Neue verlässt, wird immer schwerer und er ist nicht sicher, wie viel sein Herz noch ertragen kann. Jetzt hat Cyrus eine letzte Chance, Weber zu beweisen, dass es nicht dessen Job ist, der ihn zu Cyrus perfektem Mann macht, sondern Weber selbst. Mit der Hilfe der vor kurzem zerbrochenen Familie seiner Schwester ist er bereit, Weber zu zeigen, dass das Heim, das der Mann immer gesucht hat, schon immer genau hier – bei ihm – war. Cyrus hat vielleicht einmal ein Ultimatum gestellt, doch jetzt hat es sich zu einem Schwur gewandelt: Er wird Weber nie wieder aus seinem Leben lassen.

He wrote a comedy. Fate directed a romance. 

Drew Beaumont is bored of the same old roles: action hero, supervillain, romantic lead. He’s not going to let a fresh gay buddy comedy languish just because they can’t find him the right costar. No, Drew bats his eyelashes and convinces everyone that the movie’s writer should play Drew’s not-so-straight man.

Aspiring writer Steve Sopol has never had a screenplay optioned. Now one of Hollywood’s hottest properties wants to be in a movie Steve hasn’t finished writing—and he wants Steve as his costar. Turns out the chemistry between them is undeniable—on and offscreen.

Drew swore off dating in the biz, but Steve is the whole package: sharp, funny, humble, and cute. For Steve, though, giving in to the movie magic means the end of the privacy he cherishes. Will the credits roll before their ride into the sunset?

Ils ont des métiers qu'ils aiment, travaillent ensemble, vivent ensemble et pendant leur temps libre, ils ne peuvent toujours pas se rassasier de l'autre. Et cela dure depuis six incroyables années. Puis, la veille de Noël, l'ancienne amante de Jase, Elsa, se présente à leur porte avec une fillette de six ans. La junkie complètement abrutie par la drogue prétend que Kerry est la fille de Jase et que c'est à son tour de s'occuper d'elle, puis elle tourne les talons et s'en va.

L’unica cosa che ha senso nella vita di Colin Mulligan è smontare automobili e rimetterle insieme. Nell’officina dove lavora con suo padre e i suoi fratelli, dà del suo meglio per arrivare a fine giornata senza avere un attacco di panico o di rabbia. Bere lo aiuta. E così anche correre e sollevare pesi fino a riuscire a malapena a stare in piedi. Ma niente può cambiare il fatto che è gay, un segreto che ha tenuto nascosto a tutti. 

Rafael Guerrera ha trovato il modo di convivere con un passato di cui si vergogna. Dedica la sua vita alla giustizia sociale e ad aiutare i giovani che, come lui, sono cresciuti con molto poco. Non ha tempo per l’amore. Diamine, ha a malapena tempo per sé. Per qualche ragione, tutto di Colin, quell’uomo triste e autodistruttivo, sembra supplicarlo. Ma è proprio lì che si annidano i guai che Rafe ha lavorato tanto per lasciarsi alle spalle. E mentre la loro relazione diventa più profonda, Rafe e Colin sono costretti a rivangare i segreti che entrambi avrebbero preferito tenere sepolti.

Ben Shane has it all… and he’d like to give some of it back. While he loves his job heading a foundation that funds worthy causes around the world, his engagement to one of America’s wealthiest men leaves him feeling more like a trophy wife than a valued partner. The first warning that his relationship might not be designed to last is his irresistible lust for Dusty Kincaid, the golden-haired, bright-eyed handyman for his company.

Though Dusty is odd for a twenty-three-year-old—no liquor, no sugar, and he can’t even drive—the more Ben gets to know Dusty, the more he admires him. But is Ben going to give up a guy who drives a Ferrari for one who takes the bus? He must be mad. Dusty knows he and Ben can never work. After all, Ben’s perfect… and Dusty isn’t. But Ben might surprise everyone with proof that he’s only mad in love.
