Finlay McIntyre (alias Raven) est une star de films pour adultes avec un penchant pour les kilts, jusqu’à ce qu’un accident mette fin à sa carrière et lui retire tout désir sexuel, le laissant avec une estime de soi en berne et sans travail. Il savait que sa carrière dans le porno ne durerait pas éternellement, mais il n’était pas prêt à prendre sa retraite à vingt-huit ans. Tout en essayant de donner du sens au reste de sa vie, Raven accepte d’assister à une réunion des anciens. C’est alors qu’un climatiseur cassé dans sa chambre d’hôtel va tout changer.

Caleb Sanderson, un entrepreneur avec sa propre compagnie de climatiseurs, n’a pas la moindre idée de ce qui l’attend en entrant dans la chambre d’hôtel de Raven pour réparer l’appareil. Ils sont attirés l’un par l’autre, mais Caleb, dans le placard, ne peut pas se permettre une relation homosexuelle… pas avec sa mère qui le presse de produire des petits-enfants. S’il veut garder Raven – qu’aucun placard ne pourrait retenir – il faudra qu’il dise la vérité à sa famille. Mais Raven a aussi ses propres secrets. Il refuse de révéler son passé dans le porno à Caleb, un passé qui pourrait être le dernier obstacle à toute relation.

Pascal Larocque, serveur dans un restaurant réputé de Montréal, sait ce que signifie « aimer » – et il connaît aussi le sentiment de perte. Quelques années plus tôt, il a enterré l’homme avec lequel il pensait passer sa vie. Il est parfaitement heureux de sa vie en solitaire, du moins c’est ce qu’il dit à ses amis. Mais une rencontre inattendue dans un bar du coin suivie d’une autre à l’entrée de son immeuble mettent son monde sens dessus dessous.

Mathias Perras est un homme de vingt-quatre ans, fraîchement installé à Montréal, qui jongle entre deux postes pour pouvoir vivre dans la rue Sainte-Catherine située au cœur du quartier gay. La journée, il travaille à la Banque de Montréal où il souhaite rapidement accéder à un poste de cadre. La nuit, il est serveur dans un bar gay au bas de sa rue. Il n’a pas le temps de respirer, mais son implication au travail portera un jour ses fruits quand sa carrière décollera et qu’il aura la vie dont il a toujours rêvé. Lorsqu’il fait la rencontre de Pascal, une pièce supplémentaire de ce rêve se met en place. Pascal représente tout ce qu’il recherche chez un amant : plus âgé, plein d’assurance, avec un train de vie et un emploi stables. Mais Pascal ne le remarque même pas. Que doit-il faire pour obtenir les faveurs de cet homme ?

Crossing the border into love.

Snap decisions and misguided ideas bring Portuguese national Mateus Fontes and businessman Crawford Hargrave together at the Canadian border crossing.

Mateus is caught in a catch-22. With his almost-expired tourist visa, entrance to Canada is denied, but the US won’t let him back in either. Crawford thinks he’s solved things when he tells the border agent they’re engaged, and it works—except now they have to actually get married before either of them can get back into the United States. But Crawford has been burned by marriage once, and he’s determined not to make that mistake again.

Neither of them expects real feelings to bloom out of their fake marriage, but they do. And the two of them have to learn how to be honest with each other to make things work, which is especially hard when their entire marriage is based on lies.

Ten years ago Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron George lost his wife and moved to Colton, hoping growing up in a small town would be better for his children. He’s gotten to know his community, including Mr. Larkin, the bouncy, funny science teacher. But when Larx is dragged unwillingly into administration, he stops coaching the track team and starts running alone. Aaron—who thought life began and ended with his kids—is distracted by a glistening chest and a principal running on a dangerous road.

Larx has been living for his kids too—and for his students at Colton High. He’s not ready to be charmed by Aaron, but when they start running together, he comes to appreciate the deputy’s steadiness, humor, and complete understanding of Larx’s priorities. Children first, job second, his own interests a sad last.

It only takes one kiss for two men approaching fifty to start acting like teenagers in love, even amid all the responsibilities they shoulder. Then an act of violence puts their burgeoning relationship on hold. The adult responsibilities they’ve embraced are now instrumental in keeping their town from exploding. When things come to a head, they realize their newly forged family might be what keeps the world from spinning out of control.

Ein Titel der Fünf Stadtbezirke Serie

Verantwortung übernehmen war früher einfach nicht Raymonds Ding. Aber die Zeiten haben sich geändert, sein älterer Bruder und sein Partner wollen zusammenziehen, und Raymond bleibt gar nichts anderes übrig, als sich zusammenzureißen und sich eine eigene Wohnung zu suchen. Als David Butler, der offen schwul ist, vorschlägt, dass die beiden eine WG gründen, stimmt Raymond zu – aber nicht nur, weil er einen Platz zum Schlafen braucht.

David ist in fast jeder Hinsicht das krasse Gegenteil von Raymond. Der junge Lehrer kommt aus einer liberalen, weißen Familie in Connecticut, während der schnoddrige Raymond in Queens geboren wurde und am Hafen jobbt. Trotzdem sind die beiden enge Freunde. Alle staunen, dass die beiden sich so gut verstehen, und erst recht, als sie anfangen, gar nicht so diskret miteinander zu flirten. Schließlich hat Raymond seine Bisexualität bisher geheim gehalten.

Seit Raymond und David unter einem Dach leben, ist aus dem Flirten viel mehr geworden, und schon bald wird die unkomplizierte Freundschaft der beiden von frustrierender sexueller Spannung belastet, und die extremen kulturellen Unterschiede ihrer Herkunft drohen sie auseinanderzubringen. Jetzt muss Raymond sich nicht nur dazu bekennen, dass er neuerdings erwachsen geworden ist, er muss auch zu seinen Gefühlen für David stehen, um ihn nicht zu verlieren.

Two men.

One night of passion.

They never expected to see each other again.

They were wrong.

Tobias Bennett is a quiet and unassuming man who teaches yoga and enjoys parkour. Though he is proud to be gay, an abusive relationship with a domineering man has left Tobias wary of romance, and he keeps to himself in his tidy Los Angeles apartment.

Pro football player Sullivan Archer is Tobias’s complete opposite: loud, brash, fond of the spotlight… and deep in the closet. When a hamstring injury sends Van to Tobias as part of his therapy, neither of them is expecting to come face-to-face with his one-night stand. Now they’re stuck together throughout Van’s healing process, and the close proximity will force them to deal with some hard truths. For Tobias, it’s realizing his hookup is a celebrity. For Van, it means accepting that he likes Tobias more than he wanted. They’ll both have to acknowledge that if they choose to pursue a relationship, their lives will change in big ways.

How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?

Jake Moore’s world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who’s the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.

It takes all of Dallas Yates’s imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo’s outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake’s soul. It’s easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake’s shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.

When Jake’s world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he’s learned to lean on. It’s only a matter of time before he’s left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake’s past haunts him, making him doubt he’s worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.

Shawnee County, Kansas, might not be the most accepting place for a gay couple, but boyfriends Antony James and Curtis Ramírez have made it their home. Both of them work at Pauline Central Primary School, and while Antony is content teaching, Curt would rather pursue his passion: poetry. He plans to resign, but he doesn’t get the chance.

Working together has its risks, and when a student witnesses Antony and Curt sneaking a kiss in the workroom, they’re reprimanded. The school board’s punishment is mild, but some members of the community aren’t willing to let the indiscretion go. That small mistake could cost Antony and Curt their home—or it could remind them that home is in the heart, and as long as they stay strong in their love, they’ll always have a place to belong.

Buch 1 in der Serie - Mitten im Irgendwo

Daniel Mulligan ist tätowiert, hart im Nehmen und besitzt eine scharfe Zunge. Seine Unsicherheit versteckt er hinter Sarkasmus. Daniel hat nie irgendwo dazugehört – nicht zu Hause in Philadelphia, bei seinem Vater und seinen Brüdern, die alle Automechaniker sind, nicht an der Uni, wo seine Klassenkameraden von den Ivy League Eliteuniversitäten auf ihn herabgesehen haben. Jetzt ist Daniel erleichtert, eine Stelle an einem kleinen College in Holiday, Nord-Michigan, bekommen zu haben. Er ist jedoch durch und durch ein Stadtmensch und es ist klar, dass diese kleine Stadt nur ein weiterer Ort ist, an dem er nicht dazugehören wird.

Rex Vale klammert sich an seine tägliche Arbeit, um so die Einsamkeit in Schach zu halten: er verpasst seinem muskulösen Körper den letzten Schliff, perfektioniert seine Rezepte und fertigt maßgeschreinerte Möbel an. Rex lebt schon seit mehreren Jahren in Holiday, doch seine Schüchternheit und eindrucksvolle Körpergröße haben ihn daran gehindert, mit den Menschen näher in Kontakt zu treten.

Als sich die beiden Männer begegnen, ist die Chemie zwischen ihnen explosiv. Rex fürchtet jedoch, Daniel könnte nur ein weiterer Mensch sein, der ihn verlassen wird und Daniel hat gelernt, dass jemandem zu vertrauen, eine fatale Schwäche bedeuten kann. Gerade als sie beginnen, die trennenden Mauern, die sie um sich errichtet haben, einzureißen, muss Daniel nach Hause, nach Philadelphia. Dort entdeckt er ein Geheimnis, das alles, was er geglaubt hat, verändert.

Lickety Split: Love won’t wait.

Patch Hastle grew up in a hurry, ditching East Texas for NYC to make his name as a DJ and model without ever looking back. When his parents die unexpectedly, he heads home to unload the family farm ASAP and skedaddle. Except the will left Patch’s worst enemy in charge: his father’s handsome best friend who made his high school years hell.

Tucker Biggs is going nowhere. Twenty years past his rodeo days, he’s put down roots as the caretaker of the Hastle farm. He knows his buddy’s smartass son still hates his guts, but when Patch shows up growed-up, looking like sin in tight denim, Tucker turns his homecoming into a lesson about old dogs and new kinks.

Patch and Tucker fool around, but they can’t fool themselves. Once the farm’s sold, they mean to call it quits and head off to separate sunsets. With the clock ticking, the city slicker and his down-home hick get roped into each other’s life. If they’re gonna last longer than spit on a griddle, they better figure out what matters—fast.

Life has been grinding Dayne Mills down almost for as long as he can remember. First he lost the love of his life in an accident that also left him with a permanent injury, and then his mother passed away a year later. When his house burns to the ground, it’s the last straw. He can’t take any more, and if it wasn’t for kind and handsome firefighter Lawson Martin offering him a hand up and a place to stay, he doesn’t know what he’d do. Dayne would love for his relationship with Lawson to evolve into something beyond charity, but he knows going after a man so far out of his league will only lead to yet more heartache. It’s best to just keep his mind on his research.

It’s that research that leads Dayne to an old student journal that not only provides clues to the Native American heritage Lawson has been searching for, but chronicles a century-old love story. The tale that unfolds might be just what Dayne and Lawson need to remind them that no matter how dark life becomes, love can find a way to shine through.
