A year after he lost his wife and child to a sudden storm, Gabriel Pennant stands vigil on a Cornish clifftop and spots a small boat in distress as another storm rolls in. Gabriel fights strong winds and dangerous waves to rescue an unconscious young man. He carries the man back to his cottage and sits with him until he wakes, only to discover he’s suffering from amnesia.

When Sam wakes up in the cottage of a brooding, handsome stranger with a tragic past who saved him from drowning but obviously doesn’t want him there, he remembers nothing except being captive in his own body.

Then they are trapped together as the village is cut off by a landslip, and Gabriel has no choice but to offer grudging hospitality. Gabriel finds himself unwillingly attracted to his houseguest, and Sam just wants to take away the pain in the eyes of the lonely widower. But first they need to find out who Sam is and why he’s having nightmares about men trying to kill him.

He’s got the money to move out of the flophouse and live his own life—but who needs privacy when you’re taking care of a bunch of young men who think working penises make them adults?

Ci sono cose più dolci della vendetta.

“Mi serve un fidanzato.”

Non sono certo queste parole a spingere Nate ad aiutare il suo molto etero, molto-ex migliore amico. Non solo il padre di Kellan Brooks, nella sua corsa verso il potere, ha distrutto la sua famiglia, ma lo stesso Kellan gli ha spezzato il cuore al liceo. Pensando di poter confidare al suo migliore amico il timore di essere gay, Nate ha fatto un terribile errore, diventando invece lo zimbello di tutta la scuola. Kellan dev’essere davvero disperato per rivolgersi a lui adesso.

Kellan è stanco di permettere al padre di gestirgli la vita e vuole fargliela pagare per averlo messo alla porta. Quale modo migliore per tormentare quel bigotto che dichiararsi omosessuale, fingendosi inoltre innamorato proprio del figlio dell’uomo che suo padre ha schiacciato pur di ottenere soldi e potere? Tuttavia, Kellan non se la sente di biasimare Nate per non voler avere niente a che fare con lui. Dovrà convincerlo a stare al gioco, ma sarà ancora più difficile convincere se stesso che l’elettricità che avverte tra loro è tutta una finta…
