She gives Heller exactly what he does not want—a human: business owner Lawson Dupre.

He happens to be one of those rare humans who knows paranormals exists. He even lives with one.

Alliances: Book Two

The fight to eradicate the Tash’Ba breeding stations continues, with spunky Commander Berit Turner and his Nadisc mate, Tom, in the thick of things.

Resilient Love

A Resilient Love Story

Successful lawyer Jeremy Speer has it all—a loving husband, a beautiful home, and a cherished dream that’s about to become reality. He’s learned not to take happiness for granted, meeting the challenges of life and love head-on with unwavering commitment and fierce devotion. A series of tragic events leave Jeremy shattered, adrift on a sea of unimaginable pain. He’s able to piece his life back together, but instead of embracing it, he merely exists, using isolation and punishing physical exertion to keep the world at bay.

High school teacher Kai Daniels has a heart for at-risk kids—he was one himself, and a teenage brush with the law and some troubled years behind bars left him scarred inside and out. With courage, hard work, and the support of friends, he’s built a fulfilling life that leaves no time for a relationship.

An intense encounter with Kai at a gay club ignites a spark in Jeremy that he thought was extinguished forever, but he’s unwilling to destroy the fragile peace he’s managed to create, and he leaves Kai humiliated and disappointed. Things should have ended there, but a bizarre occurrence brings the two together in a way neither of them expected.

Chase nell'ombra

Johnnies (Italiano) | Libro 1

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. While trying to discover who is playing with Earth’s toys in deep space, they’ll give new meaning to “leave no man behind.”

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.

Dein Stern am Himmel

Lang Downs (Deutsch) | Buch 1

Buch 1 in der Serie - Lang Downs

Caine Neiheisel steckt nicht nur in seinem Job in einer Sackgasse fest, sondern auch in seiner Beziehung, als die Chance seines Lebens in seinen Schoß fällt: Seine Mutter hat die Schafstation ihres Onkels in New South Wales, Australien, geerbt, und Caine sieht es als die Chance auf einen Neuanfang, draußen auf einer Ranch, wo sein Stottern ihn nicht zurückhalten und sein Wille zu arbeiten seine Unerfahrenheit wettmachen würde.

Unglücklicherweise wechselt Macklin Armstrong, der Vorarbeiter von Lang Downs, der eigentlich Caines größter Verbündeter sein sollte, zwischen kühlem und völlig abweisendem Verhalten, und die anderen Arbeiter sind eher über Caines Stottern amüsiert, als durch seine Entschlossenheit beeindruckt … Zumindest, bis sie herausfinden, dass er schwul ist und ihre Belustigung sich in Zorn verwandelt. Es wird Caines ganze Entschlossenheit – und einen Sabotageakt eines feindlich gesinnten Nachbarn – brauchen, um die Männer von Lang Downs zu vereinen und Caine und Macklin eine Chance auf Liebe zu geben.
