Die Begabten

Eine bessere Welt | Buch Eins

Eine bessere Welt: Buch Eins

Als Talon Valdez zu einem Begabten wurde, wusste er, dass es mit seinem Leben und seinen Träumen vorbei war. Geschmäht, mit Misstrauen betrachtet und häufig eingesperrt wurden diese Menschen mit besonderen Fähigkeiten von der Öffentlichkeit verachtet und als Monster gesehen, denen man niemals so weit trauen konnte, dass sie für das Militär oder als Gesetzeshüter arbeiten durften.

Dann bietet sich ihm Jahre später die Gelegenheit, eine Sondereinheit von Begabten aufzubauen, die das FBI unterstützen soll. Die Bedingung dafür ist jedoch, dass jedem Begabten ein normaler Mensch als Partner zugeteilt wird.

Finn Mayer träumte seit seinem vierzehnten Lebensjahr von einer Karriere beim FBI und brachte jedes nur mögliche Opfer, um den Traum wahr zu machen, auch wenn er dafür seine selbstsüchtige Mutter und seinen homophoben, tyrannischen Bruder ertragen und auf einen Freund verzichten musste. Doch seine nicht diagnostizierte Dyslexie durchkreuzt diesen Plan. Seine letzte Chance ist die Zusammenarbeit mit Talon, einem Begabten mit einer tödlichen Fähigkeit, der normalen Menschen nicht traut und Finn scheitern sehen möchte.

Ihm bleiben vier Wochen, um sich dem Team zu beweisen. Dem Team bleiben vier Wochen, um sich der Öffentlichkeit zu beweisen. Und als eine andere Gruppierung ihren Erfolg – und sie selbst – in Gefahr bringt, müssen sie vier Wochen lang um ihr Leben kämpfen.

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.

You don’t end up an ex-car thief and ex-con because you’re good at resisting temptation… and Cal Tate’s rich new boss is very tempting. 

Cal has always been the bad boy lovers don’t bring home to Mom, but now he’d like someone other than a debt collector waiting for him at home. He has a legit job as a driver with his brother’s company, he’s got a doctor on the hook, and he still can’t help crawling into bed with Joseph Bailey. 

Joe has never met anyone as easy in their own skin as his new driver. Or as ridiculously beautiful. He’s in London to downsize the family business… and to investigate the abusive emails that imply a dark secret around his mother’s death. But unpicking the lies he’s been told makes Joe realize he isn’t sure who is without them. 

When his life falls apart, the only person he can be himself with is Cal. But with the anonymous stalker’s threats increasing, Joe worries that someone will finish the job they started over two decades ago—and end any chance for a happy future between him and Cal.
