Two men, each with a hidden destiny. Can they defeat a web of deceit and dark magic to ensure their fates intertwine?

Bedouin Isra al-Grayjaab’s dreams lead him to Janan, an amnesiac beggar on the street of Qena—one who steals his heart and starts him on a seemingly hopeless quest. With only their wits, Isra’s knowledge of the desert’s secrets, and the aid of a mercurial djinn, they must recover Janan’s past. But neither can predict his true identity or the lengths others will go to see that his mind remains broken and his true power out of his reach.

In a sweeping romantic adventure that takes them across the Eastern Desert to the modern streets of Cairo and on to the luxurious Red Sea Coast, Janan and Isra seek a truth that will either bring them into each other’s arms or tear them apart forever.

Three facts about Tuckington Belle:

1. Given the choice between illegally scaling the royal castle’s walls to steal flowers for a client at his family’s dress shop or going on a date with a girl his brother set him up with (“He’s fertile, and he can sew!”), Tuck will scale the wall like a spider after a fly.

2. If, upon knocking himself unconscious when he falls off the wall, Tuck wakes up bruised, blindfolded, and inside the castle, where—based on the unearthly wails heard nightly—the prince no one has seen in ten years is probably a ghost, Tuck would still choose this over a date with a girl.

3. Tuck thinks it’s time to admit he’s gay.     

 

Three facts about Prince Frederick George Deor (Read and approved with great reluctance by Lord “Protocol is Protocol. Stop Being a Pain About It” Todd):

1. He brought a curse upon himself and now bears the skin of a snake. 

2. He can’t take his eyes off the injured thief recovering in the castle.

3. Friendships born from lying and insisting the other person wears a blindfold can blossom into true love—which he needs to break the curse.

Seguito di Il principe dei Soldati

Serie Il cuore dei Soldati, Libro 2

Il foxling Toka ha servito per secoli il re dei Soldati e ora si occupa del suo amato consorte. È una posizione prestigiosa che lo rende felice, perché gli permette di aiutare il principe una volta umano a adattarsi al loro regno magico e coltivare la loro amicizia. Anche i suoi incontri con Rayner, guerriero e braccio destro del re, si fanno più audaci. Ma le leggi parlano chiaro: i servi e i Soldati non hanno il permesso di accoppiarsi. Non importa che da tempo Toka sia innamorato perdutamente dell’affascinante farabutto.

Rayner non avrebbe mai immaginato di innamorarsi di un servitore, ma è rimasto stregato da quel foxling bellissimo e intelligente, e non sopporta le regole che li tengono separati. Quando arriva in visita da un regno vicino un re arrogante e perfido, Rayner rischia di perdere tutto. Ma i guerrieri Soldati non si arrendono, e lui ha intenzione di combattere con tutte le sue forze per far rimanere Toka nel posto che gli appartiene: tra le sue braccia.

A Being(s) in Love Story

Can a curse be a blessing?

Clematis works hard to embody every fairy stereotype. He can be a sulky prince or a submissive flirt, slutty and arrogant or silly and soft. He makes himself into whatever causes someone to want him. Combine that with beauty that’s incredible even for a fairy, and everyone wants him sooner or later… just not for long.

Well, everyone except the fairy Clematis secretly adores. But then, he’s never expected happily ever after, not when he’s spent years burying his emotions and making himself unlovable to push people away and protect his heart.

But his curse changes all that, and Clematis can no longer prevent his feelings from rising to the surface. He’s terrified that when his few friends see him for who he really is, they’ll abandon him, just like his parents did.

It’s hard to imagine friends who see past his act to the sweet person within, but maybe happiness has been in front of him the entire time, waiting for the real Clematis to break free and blossom.

Thomas is too young and innocent to become involved with Julian, but opposites attract, and this is one battle Julian is fated to lose….

Julian and Thomas grow closer as the demonic menace advances. A prophecy from a dying mage comes with a bleak warning: to save Thomas’s life, Julian might have to give up the only man he’s ever loved.

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…

Wolf Winter | Book Two

Sequel to Dog Days

A Wolf Winter Novel

When the Winter arrives, the Wolves will come down over the walls and eat little boys in their beds.

Doctor Nicholas Blake might still be afraid of the dark, but the monsters his grandmother tormented him with as a child aren’t real.

Or so he thought…until the sea freezes, the country grinds to a halt under the snow, and he finds a half-dead man bleeding out while a dead woman watches. Now his nightmares impinge on his waking life, and the only one who knows what’s going on is his unexpected patient.

For Gregor it’s simple. The treacherous prophets mutilated him and stole his brother Jack, and he’s going to kill them for it. Without his wolf, it might be difficult, but he’ll be damned if anyone else gets to kill Jack—even if he has to enlist the help of his distractingly attractive, but very human, doctor.

Except maybe the prophets want something worse than death, and maybe Nick is less human than Gregor believes. As the dead gather and the old stories come true, the two men will need each other if they’re going to rescue Jack and stop the prophets’ plan to loose something more terrible than the wolf winter.
