Der sechsundvierzigjährige Eddie Hightower hat ein Problem. Er ist einsam. Das einzige, was ihn daran hindert, dieser Realität ins Auge zu sehen, ist die Tatsache, dass er nicht allein ist. Er hat ein ganzes Haus voller Haustiere und ein Tierheim voller Streuner und ausgesetzter Tiere, für die er ein neues Zuhause sucht. Obwohl er seine Arbeit von ganzem Herzen liebt und sie ihm viel Freude bereitet, fehlt seinem armen, alten Herzen ein entscheidendes Etwas. Und Eddie weiß auch genau, was es ist. Liebe.

Aber halt! Einsatz des Orchesters. Plötzlich und unverhofft passiert es. In der kleinen Stadt Spangle in der Wüste Kaliforniens taucht ein fremder junger Mann mit stechenden grauen Augen auf. Es sind die hellsten und wunderschönsten Augen, die Eddie jemals gesehen hat. Der arme Eddie Hightower wird in ihre silbrigen Tiefen gezogen und verschwindet mit einem Gurgeln. Der Name des Fremden ist Gray Grissom. Gray, wie seine Augen grau sind. Ohne zu zögern öffnet Eddie dem verlorenen jungen Mann seine Tür – und sein Herz. Schließlich ist das Eddies Job. Er gibt Streunern ein Zuhause. Aber diesen speziellen Streuner will Eddie ganz für sich allein behalten.

Sequel to The Doctor's Secret
Copper Point Medical: Book Two

The hospital’s least eligible bachelor and its aloof administrator hate each other… so why are they pretending to date?

Dr. Owen Gagnon and HR director Erin Andreas are infamous for their hospital hallway shouting matches. So imagine the town’s surprise when Erin bids an obscene amount of money to win Owen in the hospital bachelor auction—and Owen ups the ante by insisting Erin move in with him. 

Copper Point may not know what’s going on, but neither do Erin and Owen. Erin intends his gesture to let Owen know he’s interested. Owen, on the other hand, suspects ulterior motives—that Erin wants a fake relationship as a refuge from his overbearing father.

With Erin suddenly heading a messy internal investigation, Owen wants to step up and be the hero Erin’s never had. Too bad Erin would rather spend his energy trying to rescue Owen from the shadows of a past he doesn’t talk about.

This relationship may be fake, but the feelings aren’t. Still, what Erin and Owen have won’t last unless they put their respective demons to rest. To do that, they’ll have to do more than work together—they’ll have to trust they can heal each other’s hearts.

Ian McVeigh è un seduttore felicemente single da anni, disinibito e apertamente gay, che non riesce a spiegarsi l’inaspettato desiderio e il sentimento di protezione che prova quando incontra David: rugbista, disoccupato e nuovo delizioso amante del suo capo. David Kelly è un mantenuto, e decisamente al di fuori della sua portata. È impossibile che un ragazzo così esigente e affascinante presti un briciolo di attenzione a un uomo come lui, con pochi mezzi per corteggiarlo.

Eppure, un giorno, David non solo lo guarda, ma lo tocca, lo stuzzica, e fa di tutto meno che invitare Ian a rubarlo al suo protettore. Ma David non può permettere a niente e a nessuno di abbattere i muri protettivi che ha costruito attorno a sé con tanta attenzione. Ian non sa molto del suo passato, e quello che non sa potrebbe nuocere a entrambi.

Ian sostiene che i trascorsi di David non abbiano importanza, ma quando lo vede con un ricco uomo maturo, pensa immediatamente al peggio. Dovranno entrambi imparare a essere onesti, se non vorranno restare da soli per sempre.

Seth Arnold learned at an early age that two things in life could make his soul soar—his violin and Kelly Cruz. In Seth’s uncertain childhood, the kindness of the Cruz family, especially Kelly and his brother, Matty, gave Seth the stability to make his violin sing with the purest sound and opened a world of possibility beyond his home in Sacramento.

Kelly Cruz has loved Seth forever, but he knows Seth’s talents shouldn’t be hidden, not when the world is waiting. Encouraging Seth to follow his music might break Kelly’s heart, but he is determined to see the violin set Seth’s soul free. When their world is devastated by a violent sexual assault and Matty’s prejudices turn him from a brother to an enemy, Seth and Kelly’s future becomes uncertain.

Seth can’t come home and Kelly can’t leave, but they are held together by a love that they clutch with both hands.

Seth and Kelly are young and the world is wide—the only thing they know for certain is they’ll follow their heartstrings to each other’s arms whenever time and fate allow. And pray that one day they can follow that string to forever… before it slices their hearts in two.

A Stars from Peril Novel

Love never goes out of style.

Landry Bishop fled his tiny hometown and never looked back. Now his expertise in food, fashion, and décor has earned him all of Hollywood’s glittering perks. But with his husband deceased and his personal assistant retired, Landry has nobody to rely on—and no one to help him indulge his secret cravings.

Casual, plainspoken Jordan Stryker seems a dubious choice of a PA for someone as formal and self-controlled as Landry. Jordan’s questionable fashion sense and limited kitchen skills don’t exactly enhance his résumé. But as Landry soon realizes, Jordan has many attractive qualities too.

With a strong pull toward Jordan, new career opportunities on the horizon, and a persistent tug from family back home, Landry is in a quandary. He can advise others on how to make their lives special, but what should he do about his own?

Patch Hastle ist erfolgreicher DJ und Model, der als Jugendlicher aus Texas abgehauen ist. Er hat wenig Grund, zurückzublicken. Dann verunglücken seine Eltern tödlich und Patch muss notgedrungen zurück in seine alte Heimat. Sobald die Farm der Familie verkauft ist, will er sich wieder aus dem Staub machen. Leider wurde ausgerechnet der böse Geist seiner Jugend zum Testamentsvollstrecker berufen – der gut aussehende beste Freund seines Vaters, der ihm das Leben an der High School zur Hölle gemacht hat.

Tucker Biggs zieht es nirgendwo hin. Zwanzig Jahre nach seiner Zeit als Rodeo-Cowboy hat er als Verwalter auf der Hastle-Farm Wurzeln geschlagen. Dass der ungebärdige Sohn seines Freundes ihn früher nicht leiden konnte, war ihm klar. Aber als ihm plötzlich ein attraktiver junger Erwachsener gegenübersteht, eine Versuchung auf zwei langen Beinen in Skinny-Jeans, hat Tucker alle Veranlassung, sich ein paar neue Tricks einfallen zu lassen.

Patch und Tucker kommen schon bald zur Sache, aber etwas Ernstes kann das ja nicht werden. Das Ende scheint vorprogrammiert: Die Farm wird verkauft, ihre Wege werden sich wieder trennen und jeder reitet in seinen eigenen Sonnenuntergang. Aber den rastlosen Großstadtmenschen und seinen verwurzelten Kerl vom Land verbindet dann doch mehr als gedacht. Wenn sich nicht alles wieder in Luft auflösen soll, müssen die beiden sich darüber klarwerden, was ihnen wirklich wichtig ist – bevor ihnen die Zeit davonläuft.

Il est facile de devenir cynique quand la vie ne va pas comme on veut.

Cole Reid mène une vie de reclus depuis ses quinze ans, âge auquel son homosexualité a été révélée au grand jour par son équipe de baseball. Depuis, son comportement obsessionnel compulsif et sa nature sarcastique ont fait fuir une bonne partie de la population. Quant aux autres, ils le détestent parce qu’il est homosexuel. Selon lui, il est voué à faire fuir n’importe quel ami potentiel – ne parlons même pas d’un petit ami –, alors à quoi bon faire des efforts ?

Pendant une année universitaire où se côtoient les amis bruyants, les mésaventures en camping et les parents intrusifs, Cole et Ellis développent un lien amical qui change la vision de Cole sur la vie.

Can a man who loves his small hometown trust it to love him back?

Jared Thomas has lived in the mountain town of Coda, Colorado his whole life. He can’t imagine living anywhere else. But Jared’s opportunities are limited—the only other gay man in town is twice his age, and although Jared originally planned to be a teacher, the backlash that might accompany the gig keeps him working at his family’s store instead.

Then Matt Richards moves to town.

Matt may not be into guys, but he doesn’t care that Jared is. A summer camping and mountain biking together cements their friendship, but when Matt realizes he’s attracted to Jared, he panics and withdraws, leaving Jared all too aware of what he’s missing.

Facing Matt’s affair with a local woman, his disapproving family, and harassment from Matt’s coworkers, Jared fears they’ll never find a way to be together. But for the first time, he has the courage to try… if he can only convince Matt.

 

Meant to Be

Jared has simple goals for his freshman year of college: make friends, lose his virginity, come out, and maybe fall in love. He doesn’t anticipate getting caught between his friend Bryan and Bryan’s flamboyant ex. Through the awkwardness, Jared learns love doesn’t always mean sex and the most meaningful connections might have nothing to do with romance.

Kelly Cannon è soddisfatto della sua vita. Ha degli amici, una famiglia fantastica e un buon lavoro. La sua vita amorosa, però, fa davvero pietà. E per quale motivo? Perché il suo cuore ha deciso di infrangere due regole importanti: non innamorarsi di un etero e soprattutto non innamorarsi del proprio migliore amico.

Il campione di football Britton “Blue” Montgomery è sotto pressione. Suo padre è interessato solo alla sua carriera di giocatore. I suoi allenatori vogliono che giochi senza infortunarsi di nuovo. E poi ci sono i tifosi, il suo agente e infine sua madre, che è ricomparsa dopo aver lasciato la famiglia anni prima. Come se non bastasse, il suo rapporto con Kelly si fa sempre più incerto, e questo lo spaventa più di qualsiasi altra cosa.

Quando Kelly ammette di essere innamorato di lui, il loro legame è messo alla prova, e Blue deve decidere cosa conta davvero. Non vuole perdere la persona più importante della sua vita, ma il prezzo per tenere Kelly al suo fianco potrebbe essere più alto di quanto lui sia disposto a pagare.

Per fortuna, il suo soprannome in campo è Blueprint, il Prototipo: è l’unico che potrà cambiare le regole del gioco.
