Counting Down

Counting | Book Two

Counting: Book Two

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?

Rainbow Sprinkles

States of Love | California

Cooper Reed has a fairly relaxed life for someone who lives in LA. He’s no celebrity—just the guy who makes sundaes at the Dreamy Creamery, and that’s the way he likes it. The highlight of every week is the beautiful guy who turns up and orders a sundae with rainbow sprinkles. Cooper still isn’t sure if that’s a code, because he has a huge crush and the hot guy is terrible at flirting.

Drew Tanner, it turns out, is an original California dreamer. He’s as wholesome as apple pie and twice as sweet, a real-life Disney Prince at Disneyland. But while Drew’s head is in the clouds, Cooper’s feet are firmly on the ground, and their different outlooks might be more than their new relationship can take.

THIRDS (Français) | Tome 4

THIRDS, tome 4

Sloane Brodie, chef d’équipe du THIRDS, est gravement blessé après une attaque de la Coalition et l’Agent Dexter J. Daley jure de faire payer Beck Hogan pour ce qu’il a fait. Mais les plans de vengeance de Dex tournent court. Avec Ash en arrêt, récupérant toujours de ses propres blessures, Sloane à l’hôpital, et Destructive Delta dans la ligne de mire de la Coalition, le Lieutenant Sparks ne veut prendre aucun risque. L’affaire est retirée des mains de l’équipe de Dex, l’enquête étant confiée au chef d’équipe Sebastian Hobbs. Dex refuse d’être mis à l’écart alors qu’une autre équipe se lance après Hogan, et il décide de mettre ses anciens talents d’inspecteur des FPH à l’œuvre pour trouver Hogan avant Theta Destructive, quel qu’en soit le prix.

Avec un rétablissement long et douloureux qui l’attend, Sloane n’a vraiment pas besoin d’un partenaire qui ratisse la ville, surtout quand les mensonges – même s’ils sont bien intentionnés – commencent à s’accumuler rapidement et prendre des proportions démesurées. Le désir de vengeance ne lui est que trop familier, mais certaines choses sont plus importantes, comme l’homme qui a promis de se tenir à ses côtés. Alors que Dex s’aventure sur un chemin obscur, c’est à Sloane de lui montrer ce qui est en jeu, et finalement mettre un nom sur ce qui sommeille dans son cœur.

Quasi normale

Wrench Wars – Gli assi dei motori

Un libro della serie Wrench Wars - Gli assi dei motori

Che cosa è considerato “normale”? 

Quando Brandon Kenner si presenta all’officina dove lavora Kasey Ralston con una Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 del 1970, Kasey perde la testa sia per l’uomo che per la macchina. Ma Kasey nasconde un segreto imbarazzante: la sua passione per le vecchie muscle car va oltre ciò che viene considerato normale. La sua bizzarra fissazione lo ha portato a isolarsi: dalla famiglia, che lo ha estraniato, e dai colleghi, dai quali si tiene alla larga. 

Ma quando Brandon scopre il segreto del bel meccanico, non ne resta affatto disgustato, anzi. Trova che Kasey sia intrigante ed è deciso ad averlo tutto per sé.

Tutto di Brandon sembra mandare su di giri il motore di Kasey, che di certo non disdegna l’idea di sporcarsi le mani con un uomo così affascinante. Ma Kasey è preoccupato di ciò che accadrà dopo: ci sarà un futuro per loro due? Anche se in passato tutte le sue speranze per una relazione a lungo termine sono state deluse, non può fare a meno di sognare che, nonostante la propria mania, Brandon sarà l’eccezione.

2nd Edition

Rodeo cowboy Teagan has inherited his father’s ranch, and it’s in a bad way. To pay his bills, he’ll have to work the rodeo circuit hard, and for that he needs a partner. Team roper Cash is just the ticket. He’s not the friendliest sort, but he has a good seat and a better roping arm, so Teagan takes Cash on and things heat up fast. Maybe too fast.

When Teagan finds out he’s not the only one Cash has in the saddle, he thinks they’re over for good. But then Cash has an accident, and Teagan cares too much about Cash to abandon him. How will he deal with a new Cash, one with no memory of being a bit of an asshole—or of a relationship with Teagan? And how will Cash react when he realizes Teagan has been less than forthcoming about their past?

Like any good rodeo ride, Teagan and Cash have ups and downs, crashing and burning as often as they blaze bright. But to make their love work as smoothly as their roping, they’ll have to push past deception and stubborn pride.

First Edition published as Tabula Rasa by Torquere Press, 2007.

Lang Downs (Italiano) | Libro 5

Seguito  di Domare le fiamme

Serie Lang Downs, Libro 5

Il sogno di Seth Simms non è mai stato di diventare un jackaroo, e in effetti, stando a quanto dice il suo miglior amico Jason Thompson, non lo è. Ha solo avuto la fortuna, dieci anni prima, di trasferirsi a Lang Downs insieme al fratello. La vita nella stazione gli ha dato la stabilità necessaria a finire la scuola e frequentare l’università, ma il giovane non ha mai pensato che Lang Downs potesse diventare per lui il porto sicuro che sembra essere per tanti altri. Sa di essere troppo incasinato e crede che nessuno sarebbe disposto a prendersi in casa qualcuno con tutti i suoi problemi.

Sin da piccolo, Jason ha avuto un solo scopo nella vita: lavorare a Lang Downs come veterinario al bisogno e come jackaroo il resto del tempo. Può così approfittare delle sporadiche visite di Seth per stare con lui, anche se il sogno di passare da amici ad amanti sembra destinato a non avverarsi mai, visto che il ragazzo è etero.

Quando Seth torna a casa all’improvviso con l’intenzione di rimanere, Jason accoglie la notizia con la gioia che merita, ma destreggiarsi tra la relazione con un altro jackaroo e l’amicizia con il giovane meccanico non si rivela facile, soprattutto quando scopre quanto profondi siano i problemi di Seth e con quali mezzi il ragazzo cerchi di tenerli a bada.

Fünf Stadtbezirke

Ein Titel der Fünf Stadtbezirke Serie

Verantwortung übernehmen war früher einfach nicht Raymonds Ding. Aber die Zeiten haben sich geändert, sein älterer Bruder und sein Partner wollen zusammenziehen, und Raymond bleibt gar nichts anderes übrig, als sich zusammenzureißen und sich eine eigene Wohnung zu suchen. Als David Butler, der offen schwul ist, vorschlägt, dass die beiden eine WG gründen, stimmt Raymond zu – aber nicht nur, weil er einen Platz zum Schlafen braucht.

David ist in fast jeder Hinsicht das krasse Gegenteil von Raymond. Der junge Lehrer kommt aus einer liberalen, weißen Familie in Connecticut, während der schnoddrige Raymond in Queens geboren wurde und am Hafen jobbt. Trotzdem sind die beiden enge Freunde. Alle staunen, dass die beiden sich so gut verstehen, und erst recht, als sie anfangen, gar nicht so diskret miteinander zu flirten. Schließlich hat Raymond seine Bisexualität bisher geheim gehalten.

Seit Raymond und David unter einem Dach leben, ist aus dem Flirten viel mehr geworden, und schon bald wird die unkomplizierte Freundschaft der beiden von frustrierender sexueller Spannung belastet, und die extremen kulturellen Unterschiede ihrer Herkunft drohen sie auseinanderzubringen. Jetzt muss Raymond sich nicht nur dazu bekennen, dass er neuerdings erwachsen geworden ist, er muss auch zu seinen Gefühlen für David stehen, um ihn nicht zu verlieren.
