My Mate Jack

Will Barter’s been in love with his best mate Jack for as long as he can remember. They’ve shared everything: love, life, laughs, even Will’s first kiss. But Jack’s straight, and Will’s long-buried infatuation means nothing until their last summer together draws to a close.

Then one night, everything changes, but with Will bound for university in Leeds, and Jack for his dream DJ job in Ibiza, there’s no time to explore their blurred lines. Before long all that’s left are secrets, lies, and misunderstandings.

In the months that follow, anger and hurt overshadow fifteen years of friendship, and Will must dig deep to remember Jack is his mate… his best mate, and nothing matters more than that, right?

Private detective Duncan Andrews’s best friend Gina is a witch. His dog is a zombie. And his dead boyfriend, Robbie, is a ghost. So it’s hardly any wonder that he uses his connection to the supernatural to help him solve cases. In Pale as a Ghost, Duncan’s on the trail of a serial killer who may not be human, while also trying to move on in his dating life. In Animal Instinct, someone is using the skull of a powerful wizard—Gina’s father—to control animals and attack young Ashton Marsh. In The Scarlet Tide, Duncan’s latest case leads him to Chicago and a band whose members are all vampires. And in Dead End, Robbie’s cousin Jason has moved into a house that’s haunted by a serial killer, and Gina’s on the run from witch-hunters. Through it all, Duncan must solve the case and balance a complicated personal life.

Circles: Book Five

Tyler McCall has made mistakes. He was a teacher—before he fell for a student in his school. That misstep cost him his job and everything he’d worked for. He moved to the Black Hills of Wyoming to start his life over, and he’s happy working at the Big Rock Inn near Devils Tower.

Linden Bourne, a no-nonsense FBI agent Tyler had met before, returns to Wyoming hot on the trail of a killer. The previously unexplored attraction between them grows—which is good considering they’ll be spending a lot of time together when a blizzard strands them at the inn. Cut off from the outside world, with no power, they’ll need to rely on their wits and each other to survive.

Especially when it becomes clear they’re not alone—and the danger they face comes from more than the elements.

Una  sera d’inverno, dopo aver appena staccato dal lavoro, il paramedico Jack Waters incappa in un edificio in fiamme e si appresta a fare il suo dovere. Il giorno dopo si risveglia in ospedale, coperto di gravi ustioni. Per un uomo che dà grande valore alla propria bellezza è un colpo devastante.

Ma Jack ha a malapena il tempo per assimilare quanto è accaduto. Accanto al suo letto ci sono il suo ex, il poliziotto Kevin Thompson, e Luke Kennard, il pompiere che gli ha salvato la vita. Entrambi sembrano determinati a competere per attirare la sua attenzione, ustioni o meno. Jack respinge Kevin, temendo che ora l’uomo non vorrà avere nulla a che fare con lui, e sembra vedere confermate le proprie paure quando questi se ne va senza obiettare. È il momento perfetto per il seducente e vivace Luke di iniziare a flirtare con Jack, appellandosi al suo ego fragile.

Quando in città scoppia una serie di nuovi incendi che prendono di mira il personale di soccorso, gli indizi puntano a qualcuno vicino a Jack. È sopravvissuto a un incendio, ma la prossima volta potrebbe non essere così fortunato. Sembra che qualcuno lo perseguiti, un nemico implacabile. Se non farà attenzione, il fuoco lo ridurrà in cenere… a meno che non sia l’amore di due uomini a farlo per primo.

Sie führen ihn außerdem in Jae-Mins Arme, was Probleme mit sich bringt. Der Selbstmord sieht mehr und mehr wie ein Mord aus, während Jae-Min das nächste Ziel zu sein scheint. Cole hat bereits einen geliebten Menschen auf diese Weise verloren – bei Jae-Min wird er es mit allen Mitteln verhindern.

Lorsque Damien Mitchell reprend connaissance, il n’a plus de vie, plus de nom. Les médecins de l’asile du Montana lui affirment qu’il est délirant et que ses souvenirs ne sont que des mensonges : il est vraiment Stephen Thompson et il a basculé dans la folie, obsédé par une rock star morte dans un violent accident. Sa chance de pouvoir s’échapper pour retrouver sa vie survient quand sa prison brûle, mais un homme armé l’attend, déterminé à ce que, ni Stephen Thompson, ni Damien Mitchell n’y survivent.

Avec un assassin sur les talons, Damien s’enfuit jusqu’à la Ville sur la baie, où il fait profil bas, seule façon pour lui de survivre pendant qu’il cherche son meilleur ami, Miki St John, dans les rues de San Francisco. Retournant à ce qui lui permettait de se nourrir avant qu’il ne devienne connu, Damien chante devant le Finnegan, un pub irlandais sur la jetée, pour avoir de quoi manger, et il tombe bientôt sur le propriétaire, Sionn Murphy. Damien n’a pas besoin d’une complication tel que Sionn et, pour aggraver les choses, le tireur – qui ne se soucie pas de faire face à Sionn, ou à n’importe qui d’autre, si cela lui permet de tuer Damien – resurgit pour finir ce qu’il a commencé.

Jim Crawford was born wealthy, but he turned his back on it to become a police officer. Add that to his being gay, and he’s definitely the black sheep of the family.

Dr. Barty Halloran grew up with lessons instead of friends and toys and as a result, became a gifted psychologist… with only an academic understanding of people and emotions.

When Jim’s pursuit of a serial killer goes nowhere, he turns to Dr. Halloran for help, and Barty thinks he can get inside the shooter’s mind. In many ways, they’re two sides of the same coin, which both scares and intrigues him. Together, Jim and Barty make progress on the case—until the stakes shoot higher when the killer turns his attention toward Barty.

To protect Barty, Jim offers to let Barty stay with him, where he discovers the doctor has a heart to go along with his brilliant mind after all. But as they close in on their suspect, the killer becomes desperate, and he’ll do anything to elude capture—even threaten those closest to Jim.

Un libro della serie Coda

Il giovane Dominic Jacobsen sospetta di essere gay e ne ha la conferma quando un ricco ragazzo proveniente da fuori città sale sul sedile posteriore della sua GTO. Gli basta una serata con Lamar Franklin per convincersi di aver trovato l’uomo dei suoi sogni. Sfortunatamente, quella serata sarà l’unica cosa che avrà prima che l’altro lasci il Colorado.

Quindici anni dopo, Lamar torna a Coda, dopo aver messo fine all’ultima di una lunga serie di pessime relazioni. È solo, depresso e tormentato da telefonate notturne anonime. Ormai sul punto di arrendersi, si trova faccia a faccia con il passato.

Da quando aveva diciassette anni, Dominic sogna di incontrare di nuovo Lamar, ma questo non significa che sia pronto per vivere una storia. Affrontare i pettegolezzi tipici di una piccola città e i soliti drammi di una grande famiglia è già difficile, ma ciò che più lo preoccupa è perdere la custodia della figlia adolescente, Naomi. L’unica soluzione è assicurarsi che lui e Lamar rimangano amici e nulla più. Dovranno tenersi addosso i vestiti, qualsiasi cosa accada.

Semplice. Che si riveli un bene o un male, Lamar sembra però pensarla in altro modo.
