Frankie Faraday is a promising young salesperson at Mason’s Emporium. Bill Mason is his boss, the son of the store’s founder, and the object of Frankie’s long-suffering, deeply devoted crush. Bill is steady and sober; Frankie is frivolous and flaky. Or so they seem to each other, until the night of the annual inventory, when they’re trapped together in the Seasonal Gifts storeroom, with nothing but candy and peppermint schnapps to sustain them until they’re rescued. And then the real truths—and something definitely more intimate—emerge!

When software engineer Keith Trainor decides to start his own company, he knows exactly who he wants as his partner: Parker Mulvaney, his best friend from high school. But in the ten years since graduation, their contact has dwindled to nothing, and it’s all Keith’s fault. If he hadn’t tried to kiss Parker under the mistletoe at the winter formal their senior year, Parker wouldn’t have bolted. At their ten-year reunion, Keith intends to do everything in his geeky power to make amends.

Parker should have known that scheduling the reunion the day before Christmas Eve was a recipe for a headache of monster proportions. But when Keith sends a text that he’ll be attending, the evening doesn’t look so bleak. Can an unnecessary makeover, a nostalgic breakfast, an abortive shopping trip, and a whole lot of mistletoe culminate in a long-overdue first kiss?

A Spandex and Superpowers Story

Ray seems like the perfect boyfriend—he’s gorgeous, incredibly romantic, and has a mechanical suit he invented to become the dastardly MantaRay. For Alec, who also spends his nights making life difficult for do-gooders everywhere, it’s a match made in supervillain heaven. Except that Ray is a bit too into the hit soap opera All My Werewolves. When tempers flare during what’s supposed to be a quiet night out, Alec nearly ruins everything over a stupid bet with an alien gorilla.

Desperate to prove his feelings to Ray, and with Christmas fast approaching, Alec decides the fastest way to Ray’s heart is to embrace the thing that threatens to divide them—a certain werewolf show with a certain actor who Ray admires. A simple kidnapping promises to do the trick, only fur (and fandom) fly when Alec’s romantic gesture leads to a very hairy situation. Can Alec prove to Ray how much their relationship means to him, or will his plans be ruined by the werewolf before Christmas?

Clay and Daniel fell in love as enlisted men during Desert Shield, but Don’t Ask Don’t Tell meant they had to keep it secret. After Clay’s convoy was ambushed, PTSD changed him, and their relationship ended in a horrible fight on Christmas Eve.

Twenty-five years later, they’ve reconnected on Facebook, and Clay finds out Daniel will be alone on Christmas Eve. Impulsively, he sets out for Daniel’s hometown of Gilead, Ohio—where Daniel is now the mayor—to surprise him with a visit. But a blizzard strikes and Clay wrecks his car. All hope of seeing Daniel is lost—until a mysterious old man named Nick offers Clay a ride.

The weight of past wounds and the scars of war might make their reunion awkward, but Clay is willing to take the risk to win back his lost love. Despite a lifetime of disappointing holidays, Clay hopes that this soldier is finally coming home for Christmas.

Lawyers In Love

Successful attorneys Dane Coulter and Cal Monroe are rivals in the courtroom and friends behind the scenes. But can they be more?

Cal’s always carried a torch for Dane, but Dane is so deep in the closet, he can’t even admit that he might be gay. His father, a raging homophobe who rules the family with an iron fist, forces Dane into an engagement—to a woman. Dane goes along with it to keep the peace and protect his mother, but for Cal, it’s the last straw.

He can’t let Dane make a mistake that could ruin the rest of his life, and he only knows one surefire way to make Dane admit what’s in his heart. But confessing his feelings to his friend could backfire, driving a wedge between them. And even then, the choice must be Dane’s—to live the life his father wants, or to give up everything he has for a chance at happiness in Cal’s arms.

Un libro della serie I cowboy non...

Rand McIntyre ha deciso di accontentarsi nella vita. Ama il suo piccolo ranch in California e allevare cavalli, e adora insegnare a cavalcare ai bambini, ma per averne di suoi e avere accanto qualcuno da amare dovrebbe ammettere di essere gay, mettendo a repentaglio tutto quello che ha costruito. Poi, un giorno, nonostante la fobia degli aerei, va in vacanza con i genitori a Hana, nelle Hawaii, e conosce l’affascinante e misterioso Kai Kealoha, un autentico cowboy hawaiano. Rand si affeziona al fratellino e alla sorellina di Kai tanto quanto si infatua di lui, ma Kai sembra avere più aculei di un porcospino e più segreti dell’esotica terra da cui proviene.

Kai ha sempre mantenuto la sua riservatezza e vive per proteggere i suoi “bambini”. Per il bene di tutti dovrebbe starsene alla larga da quel bellissimo cowboy, ma visto che si tratta solo di un haole che sta facendo una breve vacanza, che potrebbe mai succedere? Quando le più terribili paure di Kai e gli incubi peggiori di Rand si avverano nello stesso momento, non c’è molta speranza per due cowboy che non possono, o non vogliono, dire di essere gay.

Ein Titel der Cowboys tun das nicht Serie

Rand McIntyre  begnügt sich mit ausreichender Zufriedenheit. Er liebt seine kleine Ranch in Kalifornien, seine Pferdezucht und den Reitunterricht mit den Kindern, die er vergöttert – für eigene Kinder und einen geliebten Menschen in seinem Leben müsste er sich outen und damit alles, was er sich erarbeitet hat, aufs Spiel setzen. Dann begleitet er trotz seiner Flugangst seine Eltern zu einem Urlaub nach Hana in Hawaii, wo er den dunkelhaarigen, geheimnisvollen Kai Kealoha kennenlernt, einen echten hawaiianischen Cowboy. Rand mag Kais junge Geschwister und lechzt nach Kai, doch der Mann ist stachliger als eine Krötenechse und undurchschaubarer als seine exotische Heimat.

Kai hat sich ein zurückgezogenes Leben aufgebaut, in dem er „seine“ Kinder beschützen kann, und sollte sich zu seinem und ihrem Wohl von dem großen, gut aussehenden Cowboy fernhalten. Nur wie viel Schaden kann ein Haole bei einem kurzen Urlaub schon anrichten? Als jedoch Kais schlimmste Befürchtungen und Rands dunkelste Albträume Wirklichkeit werden, gibt es nicht viel Hoffnung für zwei Cowboys, die sich nicht outen können – oder wollen.

Shy lawyer Kevin Anderson is presented with an unexpected opportunity when he draws hunky litigator Erik Wilson’s name for their office’s secret holiday gift exchange. Kevin has pined for his friend for a long time, but he fears ruining their working relationship if Erik doesn’t return his feelings. The anonymity of the exchange gives him the chance to let Erik know someone is interested, so Kevin turns the gift into a game: twelve days of presents, each more suggestive, culminating with a Christmas Eve meeting—if Kevin finds the courage to see it through! 

Erik is intrigued by his secret Santa, who has given him something to look forward to during the holidays for the first time in years. But as Christmas approaches, he realizes he doesn’t want a mystery man; he wants his best friend, Kevin. When his attempts to instigate something with Kevin fail, Erik accepts the dinner invitation of his secret admirer. Little does he suspect that Santa’s naughty little helper might be just the man to make all his Christmas dreams come true in a holiday friends-to-lovers romance that progresses from sweet to spicy for two sexy lawyers.

It’s been a week since a Christmas Eve blizzard changed the course of Marcus Winnamore’s life. Plan A is now Plan B, and the first item on his new agenda is taking Henry Auttenberg on a date. They’ve been invited to a New Year’s Eve party, and Marc is counting down the hours until midnight… until he can kiss Henry in front of his colleagues and friends. 

Things don’t quite work out to plan. Finding the elevator out of service, Marc and Henry check the stairs, only to choose the wrong door and become locked in the basement. Close quarters once again make for close conversation, and as they explore every avenue of escape, they also explore the deepening attraction between them. For Marc, this isn’t an experiment. Will he still feel that way when he has to admit to someone other than Henry that he’s gay?

Aaron’s been living in what his friend Howie calls a sexual desert. But an oasis appears on the horizon when Paul, a divorced electrician with a five-year-old daughter named Sam, moves in next door. He’s a country boy from northern Australia, and although he’s never been with a guy before, he has an impression that anything goes in the city. They find that the ordinary things in life—books, footie in the park, looking after Sam—lead them into an unlikely relationship.

But as their relationship slowly deepens, with Aaron spending time on Paul’s family’s cattle station, it becomes clear that Paul might have a harder time leaving the country behind. To him, happiness means a conventional life—including a mother for Sam. Being with his old friends convinces him he’s on the wrong path with Aaron, and he starts a relationship with a girl from his hometown. If he cannot find the courage to go after what he truly needs, he and Aaron will become nothing more than awkward neighbours.
