Seine Mutter. Sein bester Freund. Die Bardame im ortsansässigen Pub. Sie alle sind entschlossen, einen Freund für Nathan Moffatt zu finden. Dabei ist es das Letzte, was Nathan sich wünscht. Nachdem er jeden Tag dafür sorgt, dass seine Kunden nichts als romantische Magie erleben, möchte der Hochzeitsplaner des Granshire Hotel nur nach Hause gehen, sich stundenlang Krimiserien ansehen und in Unterwäsche Pizza essen.

Da ihm jedoch leider niemand glaubt, muss er sich Vorträge über einen einsamen Tod anhören. Bis er eine Idee hat: Er muss die Menschen in seinem Leben dazu bringen, ihn ebenfalls lieber als Single sehen zu wollen. Er braucht einen schlechten Freund.

Und für diese Rolle ist ein Mann perfekt.

Obwohl Flynn Delaney daran gewöhnt ist, dass die Bewohner der Insel Ceremony von ihm das Schlechteste denken, ist er nicht sicher, ob er die zweifelhafte Ehre annehmen möchte, der schlimmste Freund auf der gesamten Insel zu sein. Andererseits kann er, wenn er bei der Sache mitspielt, Zeit mit dem umwerfenden Nathan verbringen und gleichzeitig die Besitzer des Granshire Hotel ärgern – sehr lohnenswert.

Es gibt nur ein Problem: In Wirklichkeit ist Flynn ein ziemlich guter Freund, weshalb sich Nathan nun fragt, ob es tatsächlich das Schlimmste der Welt ist, sich hin und wieder von seinem Sofa zu trennen.

Coconut Cove: Book Four

An old conflict boils up behind the scenes of Coconut Cove.

The popular show is about to start filming its second season, and Tony Adams is happy to return to sunny Key West and his role as innocent Joey… mostly. Being back on set also means facing Casey. They had indulged in a scorching behind-the-scenes tryst during season one, but it ended in heartache for Tony. It still hurts.

When they return to Key West, nothing has changed. Casey takes his role as hot dad a little too far and can’t seem to remember that Tony isn’t the teenager he plays on TV. Tony’s tired of being Casey’s dirty little secret—he’s more than man enough for a real adult romance—and draws a line in the sand. Either Casey acknowledges him and their relationship publicly, or he’s calling it off between them.

In a life time of yes, no is the sexiest word he’s ever heard.

After one too many misunderstandings with the law, wealthy and spoiled David Beauchamp finds himself chained to the city by the GPS and alcohol sensor strapped to his ankle. Awaiting trial, cut off from usual forms of entertainment, he goes looking for a good time—and winds up with his hands full, in more ways than one. The situation only gets more complicated when he’s summoned for a random drug test and comes face-to-face with the dominant man who took him for one hell of a ride the night before.  

Probation Officer Tai Fonoti is used to handling other people’s problems, but he’s horrified when one of the extra clients his boss dumps on him is the sweet piece of ass he screwed the night before. It makes getting a urine sample a pretty loaded situation. Tai’s unique brand of discipline has Beach craving more. But while Tai relishes laying down the law in the bedroom, the letter of the law stands between them and kinkily ever after….

Maintenant, il doit convaincre Cody que tout ce qu’il leur reste à faire, c’est survivre à un rival politique conservateur, à un ex au cœur brisé, à leurs passés douloureux… et à une attirance qu’aucun des deux hommes ne peut combattre.

Les contes de Pennymaker, numéro hors série

Wendell Darling, surnommé Wen, mène une vie cousue de responsabilités toutes plus lourdes les unes que les autres. Abandonné par son père, un comptable insensible, et par sa mère, une artiste à l’esprit fragile, il est contraint de subvenir aux besoins de son frère et de sa sœur. Il n’a d’autre choix que de brimer sa créativité en s’échinant soixante-dix heures par semaine dans une agence de communication au sein de laquelle son supérieur, un homme incompétent, s’attribue sans aucun scrupule, tous les mérites de son travail.  

Le jour où l’agence manque de perdre l’un de ses plus gros clients, Wen a enfin l’occasion de sortir de l’ombre et de prouver sa valeur, mais pour cela, il faut d’abord qu’il retrouve le mystérieux artiste qui a réalisé la gigantesque et incroyable fresque en graffiti dans le métro.

Dissimulé derrière un pilier à deux heures du matin, Wen se retrouve nez à nez avec l’étrange peintre et leader du groupe les Lost Boys, Peter Panachek. Peter est le parfait opposé de Wen. Il arbore une chevelure rouge écarlate, une physionomie androgyne, quasi elfique, et vit sa vie au jour le jour sans se soucier des conséquences. La personnalité grave et sérieuse de Wen le fait rire, mais ne dit-on pas que les opposés s’attirent ? Les deux jeunes hommes oscillent continuellement entre caresses et disputes, mais il devient très vite évident que l’attitude désinvolte de Peter n’est qu’une armure qui dissimule un nombre incalculable de peurs et de secrets trop bien gardés. 

Puis, survient Vadon Hooker, un dealer de drogue qui menace de mettre en danger tout ce qui est cher à Wen. Aidé de l’énigmatique Monsieur Pennymaker, Peter va devoir choisir entre faire face à ses responsabilités, ou bien s’enfoncer toujours plus loin au cœur du Pays Imaginaire…

Quello che succede riaccende la sua attrazione per Peter e, incredibile ma vero, anche il suo capo è interessato a lui.

Per Jay quella relazione senza impegno diventa insostenibile quando si rende conto che sta iniziando a innamorarsi dell’uomo. Un passato tormentato impedisce tuttavia a Peter di legarsi a qualcuno. Jay dovrà decidere se potrà accontentarsi di un’amicizia o dovrà spronare Peter a cogliere tutto ciò che lui ha da offrirgli.
