Les contes de Pennymaker, numéro hors série

Wendell Darling, surnommé Wen, mène une vie cousue de responsabilités toutes plus lourdes les unes que les autres. Abandonné par son père, un comptable insensible, et par sa mère, une artiste à l’esprit fragile, il est contraint de subvenir aux besoins de son frère et de sa sœur. Il n’a d’autre choix que de brimer sa créativité en s’échinant soixante-dix heures par semaine dans une agence de communication au sein de laquelle son supérieur, un homme incompétent, s’attribue sans aucun scrupule, tous les mérites de son travail.  

Le jour où l’agence manque de perdre l’un de ses plus gros clients, Wen a enfin l’occasion de sortir de l’ombre et de prouver sa valeur, mais pour cela, il faut d’abord qu’il retrouve le mystérieux artiste qui a réalisé la gigantesque et incroyable fresque en graffiti dans le métro.

Dissimulé derrière un pilier à deux heures du matin, Wen se retrouve nez à nez avec l’étrange peintre et leader du groupe les Lost Boys, Peter Panachek. Peter est le parfait opposé de Wen. Il arbore une chevelure rouge écarlate, une physionomie androgyne, quasi elfique, et vit sa vie au jour le jour sans se soucier des conséquences. La personnalité grave et sérieuse de Wen le fait rire, mais ne dit-on pas que les opposés s’attirent ? Les deux jeunes hommes oscillent continuellement entre caresses et disputes, mais il devient très vite évident que l’attitude désinvolte de Peter n’est qu’une armure qui dissimule un nombre incalculable de peurs et de secrets trop bien gardés. 

Puis, survient Vadon Hooker, un dealer de drogue qui menace de mettre en danger tout ce qui est cher à Wen. Aidé de l’énigmatique Monsieur Pennymaker, Peter va devoir choisir entre faire face à ses responsabilités, ou bien s’enfoncer toujours plus loin au cœur du Pays Imaginaire…

Un libro della serie Più che…

Jay Reynolds ha preso una cotta per Peter Morgan, il suo capo progetto, ma è improbabile che nasca una storia d’amore in ufficio, dato che l’uomo è etero. Anzi, Jay teme che Peter sia omofobo, perciò la sua infatuazione è presto rimpiazzata dal disprezzo. Una notte, però, Jay è costretto a rivedere tutte le sue supposizioni. Quello che succede riaccende la sua attrazione per Peter e, incredibile ma vero, anche il suo capo è interessato a lui.

Per Jay quella relazione senza impegno diventa insostenibile quando si rende conto che sta iniziando a innamorarsi dell’uomo. Un passato tormentato impedisce tuttavia a Peter di legarsi a qualcuno. Jay dovrà decidere se potrà accontentarsi di un’amicizia o dovrà spronare Peter a cogliere tutto ciò che lui ha da offrirgli.

Now, a year later, Gordo has found himself once again the witch of the Bennett pack. Green Creek has settled after the death of Richard Collins, and Gordo constantly struggles to ignore Mark and the song that howls between them.

But time is running out. Something is coming. And this time, it’s crawling from within.

The Case of the Sexy Shakespearean

The Middlemark Mysteries

A Middlemark Mystery

Dr. Llewellyn Lewis leads a double life, as both an awkward but distinguished history professor and the more flamboyant Ramon Rondell, infamous writer of sensational historical theories. It's Ramon who first sets eyes on a gorgeous young man dancing in a club, but Llewellyn who meets teaching assistant Blaise Arthur formally at an event held for wealthy socialite Anne de Vere, descendant of Edward de Vere, seventeenth Earl of Oxford—who some believe was the real Shakespeare. Anne wants Llewellyn to prove that claim, even though many have tried and failed. And she’s willing to offer a hefty donation to the university if he succeeds.

It also means a chance for Llewellyn to get to know Blaise much better.

Not everyone thinks Llewellyn should take the case—or the money. Between feuding siblings, rival patrons, jealous colleagues, and greedy administrators, almost anyone could be trying to thwart his work… and one of them is willing to kill to do it.

When Anne de Vere turns up dead, the police believe Blaise is the murderer. Only the shy, stuttering professor who has won his heart can prove otherwise….

In un battibaleno: l’amore non aspetta.

Patch Hastle è cresciuto in tutta fretta: scappato a gambe levate dal paesello del Texas orientale che gli ha dato i natali, s’è fatto una vita a New York come modello e DJ e non s’è mai voltato indietro. Anche quando i suoi vengono improvvisamente a mancare, il ragazzo torna a casa con l’intenzione di sbolognare la fattoria al primo magnate del petrolio che passa e far fagotto più veloce della luce. Peccato che il testamento metta le redini in mano al miglior amico di suo padre, nonché peggior nemico di Patch.

Tucker Biggs ha finito di andare a spasso per rodei: ha messo radici ed è diventato il guardiano-bracciante della fattoria degli Hastle. Sa bene che Patch lo detesta, ma quando il ragazzo ricompare in versione adulta, bello da impazzire, Tucker finisce per trasformare la rimpatriata in una bella lezione sull’esperienza e sui desideri.

È un bel gioco se dura poco, e sia Patch che Tucker sanno già che questo finirà in un battibaleno: appena venduta la fattoria se ne andranno ciascuno per la sua strada e tanti saluti. Purtroppo, però, a ogni secondo che passa le corde che legano il cittadino tutto in tiro e il bifolco dai jeans consunti si stringono sempre di più… E se non vogliono farsi disarcionare, dovranno entrambi capire cos’è che conta davvero, e dovranno farlo alla svelta.
