Moments in Time

A Moments In Time Novel

Growing up, Jason Stern led a charmed life complete with devoted sisters, a father who was one of Brooklyn’s most respected rabbis, and a mother who made the world's best babka. He headed to NYU ready for anything—except falling for the wrong guy, coming out, and getting disowned by his once-loving family. In spite of that, Jason managed to graduate with honors. He's got friends who treat him like family, and he's proudly running the largest LGBTQ teen shelter in Manhattan. Life is good, but he's still falling for the wrong men.

When charming, sexy Quinn Fitzpatrick begins work at the shelter, Jason falls hard and fast. Quinn is tall, blond, funny—damn near perfect. Only if Quinn’s gay, even he doesn't seem to know it. If he does, he's not telling anyone. And he's about one ceremony away from becoming a Catholic priest.

Long hours of work turn to long nights of talking and laughter, and Jason dares to hope this time he's falling for the right guy. But Quinn's got a past to deal with and major decisions to make about his future. When Quinn leaves for a silent retreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.

Quando Cupido prende di mira due mortali a Las Vegas, si accendono scintille: al tavolo dei dadi, Randy Jones, un uomo comune in vacanza aziendale, guarda negli occhi di Garrett e il tempo si ferma. Gettando al vento tutto quello in cui crede, Randy si lascia coinvolgere in una relazione sensuale di due notti con l’uomo, solo per entrare nel panico quando capisce di essersene innamorato.

Il cinico milionario Garrett Shiffler ha tutto quello che i soldi possono comprare, e molti degli uomini che frequenta non vedono oltre il suo denaro. La vita gli ha insegnato che l’innocenza e l’amore sono prodotti dell’immaginazione. Ma quando Randy scompare, portando con sé emozioni che lui pensava non avrebbe mai provato, Garrett intraprende la battaglia più importante della propria vita per vincere il suo amore. Ma questa volta combatte con il cuore, non con il conto in banca.

Nel frattempo, Cupido si chiede cosa sia successo. Le sue frecce d’oro non falliscono mai, a meno che siano le Moire a interferire. Se Garrett vuole riconquistare Randy, dovrà farlo da solo, perché le Moire hanno altri progetti per Cupido.

È il 1987. I ragazzi indossano camicie rosa della Izod, le ragazze hanno capelli vaporosi e tutti possiedono una scatola del fumo; AIDS è solo una brutta parola che rimbomba dalle città come un temporale. Un adolescente scappato di casa vaga su un lato della strada, a un battito di ciglia dalla disperazione, ed è salvato da un angelo con i capelli lunghi su una Harley.

Ma questo è solo l’inizio della loro storia.

Josiah Daniels voleva pace, tranquillità e una vita semplice, e l’ha avuta finché non ha salvato Casey dalla fame, dal freddo e dallo sfinimento. Da quel momento la vita di Joe è tutt’altro che semplice e il suo nuovo pupillo naviga un mondo che sta cambiando più rapidamente delle persone che ci vivono. Joe vuole far diventare Casey un adulto felice e produttivo, e ci riesce. Ma anche da grande, Casey non riesce a concepire una vita felice senza Joe. Il problema è far accettare a Joe che il ragazzo che ha allevato è all’improvviso l’uomo che lo vuole.

La loro relazione potrebbe morire o cambiare il mondo attorno a loro. Mentre costruiscono una casa, negoziano le nuove regole del crescere assieme e schivano le insidie della vita moderna, Casey impara che l’età adulta è più che il sesso, Joe impara che non ci sono compromessi se si vuole vivere per sempre felici e contenti, e sono entrambi costretti a capire l’unica cosa che un uomo non dovrebbe mai fare: vivere da solo.

Serie Johnnies, Libro 1

Chase Summers: un ragazzo d’oro. Una bella ragazza, dei buoni amici e un futuro promettente.

Ma nessuno conosce il vero Chase.

Chase Summers ha una lametta da rasoio appoggiata al polso e l’odore dell’addio al suo amante appiccicato alla pelle. C’è una porta nel suo cuore, così spaventosa che preferirebbe morire piuttosto che aprirla, e le bugie che ha utilizzato per tenerla chiusa diventano più deboli a ogni tocco proibito. La vita di Chase è in disfacimento e la decisione di liberare la sua sessualità in segreto ha contribuito a mandare in pezzi la sua mente più velocemente.

Chase ha la possibilità di vivere un amore vero e salvarsi. Può anche aver incontrato Tommy Halloran nel mondo del gay a pagamento – mondo in cui non importa il numero di amanti, l’importante è girare una buona scena – ma se vuole la guarigione che l’amore di Tommy ha da offrirgli, dovrà trovare il coraggio di lasciare l’ombra del passato per la luce del sole. Potrebbe voler dire chiedere troppo a un uomo che ha passato tutta la vita a nascondere il suo vero io. Chase lo sa fin troppo bene: le sole cose che prosperano nell’oscurità di un cuore sono i demoni personali che amano guardarci sanguinare.

Is Earth alone in the universe?

In an attempt to answer that centuries-old question, scientists sent probes into the void, hoping they’d be found by intelligent life forms. In hindsight, it’s decided that giving possibly hostile races directions back to Earth might be a dangerous idea, and the United Space Force Marines are dispatched to recover the probes.

Corporal David Creswell has become a little too close to Blake Bickford, a recent graduate from Marine training, and fraternizing is against regulations. They manage to keep their romance under the radar until they are reassigned to a classified mission to retrieve the probes—aboard a ship where they’re clearly not welcome.

Sedici anni fa, ancora adolescente, Robert McKinnon ha lasciato la nativa Scozia e si è trasferito in America. Il professor McKinnon non si è mai veramente ambientato nella sua nuova casa, né ha mai trovato il proprio posto su questa sponda dell’oceano. Forse sta invecchiando presto, ma ha il suo gatto e i suoi libri, ed è tutto ciò di cui ha bisogno.

Poi Chris Ford irrompe nella sua vita come un ciclone. Il giovane è l’esatto opposto del placido, cortese professore. Vivaci tatuaggi ricoprono la sua pelle, ha un taglio di capelli alla moicana e suona la batteria in un gruppo rock. Rappresenta però una pennellata di colore nel mondo in bianco e nero di Robert, che si rivela essere l’unica persona su cui Chris può fare affidamento. A dispetto delle innumerevoli ragioni per cui la loro relazione non dovrebbe funzionare, in qualche modo invece sembra decollare.

Anche se Robert non sta cercando l’amore – soprattutto non con qualcuno più giovane di lui di quasi dieci anni – non può negare che stare con Chris sia divertente. Talvolta, però, lo spirito libero del ragazzo fa sentire Robert emotivamente fragile. Se i due non riusciranno a trovare un equilibrio tra tatuaggi e tazze da tè, il loro rapporto non sopravvivrà, e neppure la ritrovata brama di Robert per la vita.
