The cat funeral.

Yeah, that happened today. I went and participated in—aided and abetted?—a cat funeral.

London life is tough on idealists. In an ideal world, after years of flirtation, Leo would be cosily settled down with Jack, his long-time crush. In an ideal world, Jack wouldn’t now be engaged to a woman. And in an ideal world, Leo would move on.

When handsome new neighbour Alex moves in opposite Leo, an opportunity to do so presents itself. But Alex is working class, poorer than Leo, and probably straight. While Jack’s engagement unravels, and Leo’s friendship with Alex deepens, will Leo manage to find happiness with the right man? Or will he succumb to his enemies: self-doubt, family expectations, and pride? 

Told in diary form, this is both the story of a love triangle in London and the chronicle of a man’s struggles to confront his self-image and overcome his insecurity.

Buch 2 in der Serie - Sex in Seattle 

Der erfolgreiche Geschäftsmann Daniel Derenzo lebt nur für seine Arbeit. Doch dann wird er durch seinen sterbenden Vater daran erinnert, wie kurz das Leben ist. Daniel setzt seine Prioritäten neu und macht eine überraschende Entdeckung – er fühlt sich zu seinem Geschäftspartner und besten Freund Nick hingezogen, obwohl er immer davon ausgegangen war, ein absolut normaler, heterosexueller Mann zu sein. Auf seine typisch perfektionistische Art erkundet Daniel diese neue Entwicklung mit Hilfe der Experten von ‚Expanded Horizons‘, einer Sexklinik. Und anschließend geht er das Problem an, wie er es aus dem Geschäftsleben kennt – mit dem festen Entschluss, sich das Geschäft nicht durch die Finger rutschen zu lassen. 

Nick Ross war vor vielen Jahren in Daniel verliebt, als sie sich ein Zimmer im Studentenwohnheim teilten. Aber Nick wusste schon damals, dass Daniel nicht schwul ist. Er reparierte sein gebrochenes Herz durch eine Heirat mit Marcia. Vierzehn Jahre und zwei Kinder später gleicht ihre Ehe zwei Schiffen, die sich nachts begegnen. Da Nick seine Kinder über alles liebt, verzichtet er auf eine Scheidung. Er hat Angst davor, dass Marcia das alleinige Sorgerecht zugesprochen bekommt. Aber wenn er seinem eigenen Herzen und den Gefühlen, die in Daniel erwacht sind, vertrauen kann, gibt es vielleicht doch noch ein glückliches Ende für sie beide.

It’s not easy breaking into show biz. Especially when you aren’t exactly loaded with talent. But Malcolm Fox won’t let a little thing like that hold him back.

Actually, it isn’t the show-business part of his life that bothers him as much as the romantic part—or the lack thereof. At twenty-six, Malcolm has never been in love. He lives in San Diego with his roommate, Beth, another struggling actor, and each of them is just as unsuccessful as the other. While Malcolm toddles off to this audition and that, he ponders the lack of excitement in his life. The lack of purpose. The lack of a man.

Then Beth’s brother moves in.

Freshly imported from Missouri of all places, Cory Williams is a towering hunk of muscles and innocence, and Malcolm is gobsmacked by the sexiness of his new roomie from the start. When infatuation enters the picture, Malcolm knows he’s really in trouble. After all, Cory is straight!

At least, that’s the general consensus.

Instead of having to pick out that perfect present, why not just destroy Christmas altogether? If his nemeses (or his conscience) can’t stop him first, he might just become the supervillain who stole Christmas.

Former US Marine John Ving hates everything about holiday displays: they’re tacky, they waste energy, and they’re an eyesore. So what does his new neighbor do? He sets up the holiday spectacle from hell, and he doesn’t seem to care which holiday—he has a menorah, a baby Jesus, a Santa, and everything in between. Not to mention it’s swathed in enough lights his house is probably visible from space. 

High-school teacher Kaden Melling loves the holidays, and huge light displays on his lawn make his heart glow. He’d love to share some cheer—and maybe some kinky fun—with his smoking hot neighbor John. Odd things start to happen to his displays, but just as he begins to think life is going his way, with the holidays and with John, a Grinch destroys everything. 

It’s gonna take the display-hating John to set things right—and what he has planned might blow Kaden’s mind.

Buch 1 in der Serie – Der Zuckerbaum

Flapsig  und immer einen kessen Spruch auf den Lippen: Wiley Cantrell ist laut, rasant und unverschämt. Und das muss er im Tiefsten Süden der USA auch sein, um sich tiefreligiöse Nachbarn und Familienmitglieder gleichermaßen vom Leib zu halten. Ein verkrachter Schriftsteller, lebt Wiley von Lebensmittelmarken, arbeitet für den Mindestlohn und kann sich und seinen tauben Sohn Noah nur mit Mühe über Wasser halten.

Noah ist ein Drogenbaby, mit allen Geburtsdefekten, die dazugehören. Er sieht, wie einsam sein Vater ist und versucht, einen festen Freund für ihn zu finden. Derweil bemüht Wiley sich, Noah eine Beziehung zu seiner inhaftierten Mutter zu ermöglichen, die der Ansicht ist, dass die beste Methode, ein Kind zu füttern, eine Steinschleuder ist. Es ist also nicht überraschend, dass Noah Wileys größter Befürworter wird, als sich Krankenpfleger Jackson Ledbetter aus Boston an Wileys Kasse anstellt und seinen Zuckerbaum in Brand setzt.

Jackson verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in Wileys Sinn für Humor. Und während Wiley in vielerlei Hinsicht das Beste am Süden repräsentiert, verbirgt Jackson ein Geheimnis, dass die neu entstehende Familie bedroht.

Wenn Nord auf Süd trifft, sind kulturelle Missverständnisse vorprogrammiert, und es gibt viel Gelächter und viele Tränen, aber wie sie unten in Dixie sagen: Alles gut.

Everyone wishes they were dead when wandering the purgatory of a home furnishings store, but these guys actually are.

Benji Goss is the quintessential good guy. When his boyfriend dumps him and moves out, Benji obligingly keeps the cat—even though he’s allergic—because his ex’s new place doesn’t accept pets. He’s always joked the cat would be the death of him, but not in a way he expects when a feline mishap crushes him under a DEL TORO bookcase.

Snarky loner Patrick Bryant is in such a rut he barely remembers the life he used to lead. The last thing he recalls is being decapitated by a DEL TORO bookcase in a freak accident. As a spiritual CASA resident, he haunts the aisles of affordable Italian furniture, assisting fellow spirits in moving on to their final destinations.

When Benji appears in the CASA café, Patrick considers the naïve spirit just the man to cure his boredom. Benji’s relentless optimism chips away at Patrick’s sarcasm, making him question if there’s something beyond what he can see. But the heart is like CASA furniture—there’s always some assembly required.

Suite de Contre vents et marées
THIRDS, tome 2

Quand une série de bombes explosent dans un Centre de Jeunesse Therian, blessant les membres du THIRDS de l’équipe Destructive Delta, et provoquant un désaccord entre les agents Dexter J. Daley et Sloane Brodie, la paix semble impossible à atteindre. Plus encore quand un nouveau groupe semant la terreur, l’Ordre d’Adrasteia a toujours l’air d’avoir une longueur d’avance. Avec la panique et l’intolérance qui se propagent, et les rues jonchées de la propagande de l’Ordre, l’hostilité entre humains et Therians croît à mesure que les jours passent. Dex et Sloane, avec le reste de l’équipe, sont déterminés à faire tomber l’Ordre et à rétablir la paix, sans parler de régler un différend personnel. Mais plus l’équipe s’investit dans l’enquête sur les attentats, plus ils croient à un motif plus sinistre que le simple désir de répandre le sang et semer le chaos.

Quand il découvre l’horrible vérité derrière les intentions de l’Ordre, Sloane est forcé de faire face aux secrets d’un passé qu’il pensait avoir à tout jamais laissé derrière lui, un passé qui pourrait non seulement le détruire, ainsi que sa carrière, mais aussi la réputation de l’organisation qui a fait de lui ce qu’il est aujourd’hui. Maintenant plus que jamais, Dex et Sloane ont besoin l’un de l’autre, et, avec la confiance, la force de leur lien fera la différence entre la justice et la guerre totale.

What is a sexy soccer stud supposed to do when “following family tradition” falls 180 degrees opposite his closeted ideal?

From birth, Chris Jackson has been schooled on how to land a cheerleader. After all, his father married one, and his father’s father before him. Heck, even his older brother married a stereotypical cheerleader the summer before Chris went off to college. For two years, Chris dodges invasive questions about relationships by blaming his lack of female companionship on grueling practices and heavy course loads. But his lack of interest in girls should’ve given his family a clue. It isn’t until Chris mentions meeting a boy that his father’s synapses short-circuit.

Alonzo Martin is anything but a buxom blond. From his black hair, combat boots, and trench coat to his nail polish and guyliner, the mysterious introvert isn’t easily persuaded to date. Alonzo’s insecurities keep Chris at arm’s length, but Alonzo’s painful past might meet its match in the charismatic jock’s winning smile and sense of humor.

When opposites attract, only cheerleaders and gummy bears can help overcome fear and family tradition.

È facile diventare cinici quando la vita non rema mai dalla tua parte.

Cole Reid è un asociale recluso dall’età di quindici anni, quando uno spiacevole episodio negli spogliatoi della sua squadra di baseball del liceo ha rivelato la sua omosessualità. Da allora, il suo comportamento ossessivo-compulsivo e la sua natura sarcastica lo hanno tenuto lontano dalla maggior parte della gente; tutti gli altri invece lo odiano perché è gay. Per come la vede lui, è condannato ad allontanare qualsiasi potenziale amico, per non parlare dei fidanzati, quindi perché sforzarsi?

Quando Cole arriva al college, è ormai diventato un perfezionista solitario; la cosa diventa un problema quando il suo coinquilino si laurea e l’ufficio alloggi assegna Ellis Montgomery all’appartamento di Cole. Ellis è maldestro, magnifico, etero e, peggio di tutto, uno sportivo!

In un anno scolastico popolato di confratelli, escursioni in campeggio e genitori ficcanaso, tra Cole ed Ellis nasce un’amicizia che capovolge la mentalità da bicchiere-mezzo-vuoto di Cole. In Ellis c’è dell’altro oltre allo sportivo amante del divertimento, e forse la risvegliata libido di Cole ha riacceso in lui la speranza di sperimentare qualcosa di più del cameratismo.
