Serie Storie di Mangrove 

Innamorarsi di un collega non è quasi mai una buona idea, specialmente per un uomo a cui è appena stata data l’ultima possibilità per salvare la propria carriera. Ma fin dal primo momento in cui Dwyer Knolls vede Takeo Hiroyuki, bellissimo ma socialmente inetto, sembra destinato a prendere solo delle pessime decisioni.

La vita di Takeo è scandita da continui fallimenti nel tentativo di rendere orgoglioso il padre, un uomo giapponese fissato con le tradizioni. Sfortunatamente, avere successo negli affari per Takeo è difficile quanto cambiare il proprio orientamento sessuale. In effetti, l’unica cosa in cui sembra eccellere è notare Dwyer Knolls.

Quando i due partono per Mangrove, in Florida, per un viaggio di lavoro, la loro amicizia incerta diventa più solida e si trasforma in qualcosa di più profondo. La loro improvvisa sintonia sarà abbastanza forte da permettere loro di costruire un futuro insieme, oppure si tratta solo di un abbaglio ispirato dalla brezza dell’oceano?

Every satisfying romance starts with chemistry—that elusive element that brings two men together and just makes things work. It might be hard to define exactly what chemistry is, but it’s impossible to deny these sexy scientists, professors, students, and their partners have it going on. When the formula is right, the reactions will be explosive.

 

Organic Chemistry

Former boy genius Professor Brendon Marcus understands science better than people. Coach Josh would like to give Brendon an interactive lesson, but he’s dealing with pushy parents and some closed-minded players.

 

Biochemistry

Opposites attract when rich-kid jock Freddie turns to openly gay scholarship student Kurt for help in biochemistry class. But will being with Kurt jeopardize the future Freddie has planned when rumors start to fly?

 

Electrochemistry

Science major Brad can’t keep his eyes off Jordy on campus, but he doesn’t think he stands a chance. When they literally collide during a cruise, things heat up. But is it just a holiday fling that will dry up as soon as they’re back on land?

2nd Edition

After a bar fight gone horribly wrong, Clint is on the run, tired, hungry, and desperate to get out of Texas and across the border as fast as he can. But more than anything, he needs a place to relax and feel safe—at least for a little while. Searching for work, he stumbles into a cantina on the beach and runs into its owner. Jack might be a little older and a little worldlier, but the two men have enough in common to form a fast friendship that soon spills over into the bedroom.

But Clint isn’t the only who’s done things he isn’t proud of, things he’d rather keep hidden. Both of them have to be ready to drop everything and run if the past gets too close, and that’s no foundation for a relationship—especially since the truth always comes out eventually.

As a stunningly attractive man and the owner of a successful chain of auto repair garages, Trevor is used to attention, adoration, and getting what he wants. What he wants tends to be passionate, no-strings-attached flings with men he meets in clubs. He doesn’t expect anything different when he sets his sights on James. Imagine his surprise when the charm that normally brings men to their knees fails to impress. Trevor will need to drop the routine and connect with James on a meaningful level. He starts by offering to take James home instead of James riding home with his intoxicated friend.

For James, losing his sight at a young age meant limited opportunities for social interaction. Spending most of his time working at a school for the blind has left him unfamiliar with Trevor’s world, but James has fought hard for his independence, and he knows what he wants. Right now, that means stepping outside his comfort zone and into Trevor’s heart.

Trevor is also open to exploring real love and commitment for a change, but before he can be the man James needs him to be, he’ll have to deal with the pain of his past.

Love can bloom in the most unusual places….

In Wings of Love, Dr. Bradford Mitchell flees to Alaska to escape the devastating memories of his deceased partner, but can he let go of the past soon enough to embrace a future with pilot and friend Mac Cleary? In Treasure of Love, dive master and charter boat captain Jackson Cameron finds himself questioning his sexuality when openly gay treasure hunter Dax Powers hires him, but if they want to keep their new-found treasure, they’ll have to fight to keep the crew safe.

In Bounty of Love, Zander Walsh wakes up from coma only to find his fiancé and parents dead in an apparent robbery gone wrong. FBI Agent Jake Elliot is doing his best to find the murderer, but as the months pass—and unexpected feelings grow between them—it becomes clear that someone is doing their best to keep them from finding the truth.

Finally, in Foundation of Love, co-written with Z.B. Marshall, Wes Stanhope has spent years running from his father’s controlling ways, but when his mother dies, leaving behind one last wish, he finds himself back under his thumb. His attraction to architect Ty Williams—and Ty’s refusal to hide in the closet—just might be enough to make him fight back.

Down on his luck is Gideon Joy’s default state. He doesn’t know why he expected anything different on his cross-country trip, but not surprisingly, the hits keep coming—literally this time. Gideon strikes a moose with his car in New Hampshire, not only totaling his own vehicle, but damaging one belonging to local construction worker Silas Bright. He has no choice but to stay in Lancaster and take a job that’ll pay for the repairs. And in a town so small, Gideon’s always running into Silas. What starts as annoyance between them soon blooms into something much more romantic. But when Gideon’s notorious bad luck rears its head yet again, how many disastrous dates will Silas be willing to weather before realizing Gideon’s not worth it?

Despite Gideon’s desire to remain in the quaint community that has accepted him as one of their own, past fears of inadequacy threaten the very joy he left Los Angeles to discover. If he’s to find a happily ever after with Silas, Gideon must learn that sometimes it’s okay to not be the best. And true happiness might be waiting in a small town nestled among the great White Mountains.

Sequel to The Ongoing Reformation of Micah Johnson

Get Out: Book Two

 

Micah Johnson is living two separate lives. On the field he’s making a name for himself as a rookie with the AFL football team the Fremantle Dockers—at just eighteen. But when he steps off the field, Micah is a mess: confused, away from home for the first time, and feeling isolated from family and friends three thousand kilometres away. The foster family he’s staying with is nice, but Micah isn’t ready to open up to them about what he’s going through. Distracting himself with hookups and partying seems like a good idea until a friend’s life is changed by misfortune and Micah’s own health is threatened by his behavior. Micah knows he has to make a change, that he can’t do it alone, and that maybe there’s no shame in reaching out to others.

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.

Counting: Book Two

It’s been a week since a Christmas Eve blizzard changed the course of Marcus Winnamore’s life. Plan A is now Plan B, and the first item on his new agenda is taking Henry Auttenberg on a date. They’ve been invited to a New Year’s Eve party, and Marc is counting down the hours until midnight… until he can kiss Henry in front of his colleagues and friends. 

Things don’t quite work out to plan. Finding the elevator out of service, Marc and Henry check the stairs, only to choose the wrong door and become locked in the basement. Close quarters once again make for close conversation, and as they explore every avenue of escape, they also explore the deepening attraction between them. For Marc, this isn’t an experiment. Will he still feel that way when he has to admit to someone other than Henry that he’s gay?

Rainbow Sprinkles

States of Love | California

Cooper Reed has a fairly relaxed life for someone who lives in LA. He’s no celebrity—just the guy who makes sundaes at the Dreamy Creamery, and that’s the way he likes it. The highlight of every week is the beautiful guy who turns up and orders a sundae with rainbow sprinkles. Cooper still isn’t sure if that’s a code, because he has a huge crush and the hot guy is terrible at flirting.

Drew Tanner, it turns out, is an original California dreamer. He’s as wholesome as apple pie and twice as sweet, a real-life Disney Prince at Disneyland. But while Drew’s head is in the clouds, Cooper’s feet are firmly on the ground, and their different outlooks might be more than their new relationship can take.

Wrench Wars – Gli assi dei motori

Un libro della serie Wrench Wars - Gli assi dei motori

Che cosa è considerato “normale”? 

Quando Brandon Kenner si presenta all’officina dove lavora Kasey Ralston con una Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 del 1970, Kasey perde la testa sia per l’uomo che per la macchina. Ma Kasey nasconde un segreto imbarazzante: la sua passione per le vecchie muscle car va oltre ciò che viene considerato normale. La sua bizzarra fissazione lo ha portato a isolarsi: dalla famiglia, che lo ha estraniato, e dai colleghi, dai quali si tiene alla larga. 

Ma quando Brandon scopre il segreto del bel meccanico, non ne resta affatto disgustato, anzi. Trova che Kasey sia intrigante ed è deciso ad averlo tutto per sé.

Tutto di Brandon sembra mandare su di giri il motore di Kasey, che di certo non disdegna l’idea di sporcarsi le mani con un uomo così affascinante. Ma Kasey è preoccupato di ciò che accadrà dopo: ci sarà un futuro per loro due? Anche se in passato tutte le sue speranze per una relazione a lungo termine sono state deluse, non può fare a meno di sognare che, nonostante la propria mania, Brandon sarà l’eccezione.

2nd Edition

Rodeo cowboy Teagan has inherited his father’s ranch, and it’s in a bad way. To pay his bills, he’ll have to work the rodeo circuit hard, and for that he needs a partner. Team roper Cash is just the ticket. He’s not the friendliest sort, but he has a good seat and a better roping arm, so Teagan takes Cash on and things heat up fast. Maybe too fast.

When Teagan finds out he’s not the only one Cash has in the saddle, he thinks they’re over for good. But then Cash has an accident, and Teagan cares too much about Cash to abandon him. How will he deal with a new Cash, one with no memory of being a bit of an asshole—or of a relationship with Teagan? And how will Cash react when he realizes Teagan has been less than forthcoming about their past?

Like any good rodeo ride, Teagan and Cash have ups and downs, crashing and burning as often as they blaze bright. But to make their love work as smoothly as their roping, they’ll have to push past deception and stubborn pride.

First Edition published as Tabula Rasa by Torquere Press, 2007.
