Superordinary Society: Book One

Jazz Vanessen is weird—and not just because he’s a werewolf. For most of his life, he’s felt different from his alpha male brothers and friends. Since he’s adopted, he can’t even blame it on family.

Now eighteen, Jazz meets his idol, the social activist Lysandra Mason, and her breathtaking nephew, Dash Mercury. When Dash is around, even stranger things start to happen, including Jazz falling hopelessly in lust. Not only is Jazz having visions, making people disappear, and somehow turning invisible, but somebody’s following him and threatening to reveal his pack’s secrets to the world.

Together with Dash and Jazz’s equally amazing friends—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, and Fatima—they discover the danger is even more lethal than they thought, and Jazz’s weirdness may save all their lives.

When unassuming college student Emery Sutton wakes up in the morgue, it takes him a few minutes to remember he has magic (superpowers, damn it!) and free himself from the refrigerated drawer. And the body bag. (God.) It doesn’t take long, though, for him to remember the hot guy with wings he ran into just before a city bus ran into him.

Junior Reaper John must explain to his supervisor how his first solo assignment went so wrong. All he knows is that he happened upon Emery quite by accident, that Emery saw John when he shouldn’t have been able to, and when they accidentally touched, a bus came out of nowhere and plowed Emery under. (John really does feel bad about that.)

Hot angels, annoying demons, hijinks, absurdity, drunk siblings, a dash of silly romance, an inordinate attachment to wings, and a highly disorganized bid for world domination—Don’t Fear the (Not Really Grim) Reaper follows Emery and John down the rabbit hole where they find that moms are scarier than demons from hell, a goat is not a puppy no matter what Emery’s sister says, and awkward romance can happen anywhere.

Celebrating the end-of-year holidays doesn't always mean sleighs, snow, and snuggling to ward off the cold. How about making merry when it's just as warm (or hot) outside as inside romantic hearts? Twinkle lights in palm trees, unity cups on the sideboard, bonfires in the backyard, eggnog by the pool, and no chimneys to be found... just the warmest wishes of the holidays bringing lovers together around the world.

A huge part of the world celebrates end-of-the-year holidays that aren't anything like Bing Crosby's "White Christmas." In the southern hemisphere, it's not even winter!

Holiday reading fun! More than 400,000 words of romantic fiction in 31 stories that would sell individually for a total of $89.69.

Truman Reid est le terminale le plus fier et le plus ouvertement gay du lycée de Summitville. Il a hâte de pouvoir s’éloigner de sa cruelle et intransigeante petite ville natale sur Ohio River, où il a supporté plus que sa part d’intimidation.

C’est presque un coup de foudre pour Truman. Il pense que cet amour pourrait s’approfondir quand il découvre que Mike fait partie de l’équipe technique de la pièce de théâtre Harvey, celle que les terminales joueront sous la direction de Truman. Mais Mike est-il seulement gay ? Et comment les choses vont-elles se passer, alors que la mère de Truman tombe amoureuse du père de Mike ?

De plus, toujours hors-norme, Truman fait un choix audacieux et controversé pour la pièce, qui révolte toute la ville.

Fortsetzung zu Die Liebe und der Mut zum Leben

Truman Reid ist Schüler der Abschlussklasse an der Summitville Highschool. Und er ist ‚out & proud‘ aus Überzeugung, offen, eigenwillig und kompromisslos. Dafür wurde er an seiner Schule jahrelang gehänselt und schikaniert. Kein Wunder also, dass er es kaum abwarten kann, seine kleine Heimatstadt am Ohio River endgültig hinter sich zu lassen. Er freut sich schon auf die strahlenden Lichter der Großstadt. Vielleicht kann er ja der erste Star werden, der gender-fluid ist und einen Oscar gewinnt. Doch dann sieht er am ersten Schultag in die Augen des wunderbarsten jungen Mannes, den er jemals gesehen hat.

Mike Stewart – groß, dunkelhaarig und mit den schönsten blauen Augen der Welt – ist neu in der Stadt. Er ist still, männlich und hat die sexy Ausstrahlung einer verlorenen Seele. Für Truman ist es wie Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Eine Liebe, die nur noch tiefer werden kann, als die beiden bei der Schulaufführung von Harvey zusammenarbeiten – Mike hinter der Bühne und Truman als Regisseur. Aber ist Mike überhaupt schwul? Und wie sollen sie damit umgehen, dass sich Trumans Mom ausgerechnet in Mikes Dad verliebt?

Und als wären das nicht schon genug Probleme, entschließt sich der unkonventionelle Truman auch noch, mit seiner kontroversen und mutigen Inszenierung von Harvey einen Skandal auszulösen, der die ganze Stadt in Aufregung versetzt.

Ein Stück, das auf der Bühne des Lebens spielt – auf der Bühne von Liebe, Lachen, Weinen und dem Mut, zu sich selbst zu stehen. Wie wird es enden?
