Owen Hart’s wits—and his supernatural ability to read others’ emotions—give him an edge at the poker table, but his luck runs out when he gets hauled in to explain his suspicious success to the owner of Spades Casino. Or does it?

Leo Ellis is a successful businessman and criminal who launders money for other mobsters. Owen fascinates him. Sensing there is more to the man than meets the eye, Leo offers him a job as a waiter/sex-optional escort and moves Owen in.

But things get complicated when Leo’s fascination deepens into something else, and then even more so when they fall into bed together.

Having dealt with years of drama and secrecy, Owen feels vulnerable opening up to Leo. The whirlwind romance also puts Leo into a position that he never anticipated. Their emotions are tested further when Leo's most dangerous rival kidnaps Owen to use as a bargaining chip. Will Leo and his men be able to rescue him and keep him safe? Will Leo's second-in-command ever get enough of Owen's cupcakes? With any luck, love may be in the cards at Spades.

The Pacific Northwest border town of the Dominion is soaked in magic. Full moons are a bloody spectacle, local restaurants have unicorn on the menu, and a dragon once burned down City Hall. The excitement makes the Dominion a beacon to tourists… but many of them never make it home.

Travel writer Innis Stuart and his photographer, Karsten Roth, are visiting the Dominion to explore its dangers and offer a warning to overconfident tourists. Unfortunately, they may be among that number.

Their local guide is an old friend to Innis, but he's not acting like himself. Why does he seem to be working with the biggest crime boss in town? And why did both Innis and Karsten feel such a strong compulsion to enter the Dominion in the first place?

It turns out that what they don’t know about the Dominion can hurt them, but it’s not as dangerous as what they don’t know about themselves.

Come along for a tour of the city known as “the most magical place on Earth”... and don’t forget to buy travel insurance.

Alors que Cole Kenjiro McGinnis, ancien flic et détective privé, se remet doucement de la fusillade qui lui a arraché son amant, une enquête soi-disant de routine lui est assignée. Enquêter sur le prétendu suicide du fils d’un grand homme d’affaires Coréen se révèle rapidement loin d’être trivial, surtout lorsque cela le pousse sur la route de Kim Jae-Min, le cousin si séduisant du défunt.

Le cousin de Jae-Min avait un vilain petit secret, de ceux que Cole connaît sur le bout des doigts et que Jae-Min refoule encore devant sa famille. L’enquête conduit Cole d’un quartier privé raffiné au Dirty Kiss, un misérable club où l’homme riche satisfait discrètement des besoins dont sa famille conservatrice préfère ne pas entendre parler.

L’affaire dépose Cole McGinnis tout droit entre les bras de Jae-Min. Les jours passant, la mort de son cousin ressemble de moins en moins à un suicide et les feux des projecteurs se tournent peu à peu vers Jae-Min. La violence a déjà arraché à Cole un amant. Et pour lui, il est hors de question que cela se reproduise.

Luckily for George, he also finds Alan.

As the heir to his family’s ranch, Alan Justice knows the burden of being the oldest son. He doesn’t have time to show George, the stranger his brother dragged home, what it takes to be a cowboy. But that very night, George surprises him by helping a mare in distress through a difficult birth. Maybe the duke is made of sterner stuff than Alan thought.

George and Alan keep surprising each other, and every day they grow a little closer. But when George’s responsibilities call him home, Alan finds he’s the one who has something to prove—that he can handle what it means to be the duke’s cowboy.

Un grognement, un plouf et un choc

Lions, Tigres et Ours | Livre 2

En tant que membre d’une équipe militaire, Crank doit garder la tête froide. Son unité en dépend. C’est pourquoi les rêves sensuels récurrents qu’il fait – ceux qui mettent en scène un requin métamorpheaux cheveux et aux yeux marron foncé – le déconcentrent totalement. D’autant plus que le métamorphe est un homme.

Vic, le métamorphe requin du Groenland, n’arrête pas de penser à Crank, un militaire humain qu’il a rencontré lorsque Vic a été appelé en tant que consultant. L’homme semble être un pilote aguerri, et il serait heureux de l’avoir à ses côtés, à plus d’un titre. Et c’est un problème, d’abord parce que Vic est amoureux de son petit ami, Saul, mais aussi parce que Crank est sarcastique, irrévérencieux… et hétérosexuel.

Le problème atteint son paroxysme lorsque Saul découvre que son compagnon rêve d’un autre homme que lui. Saul n’est pas heureux de cette découverte. Mais lorsque Crank commence à envahir ses rêves, il doit revoir ses sentiments. Sa vie peut en dépendre.

Mais l’exploration du lien grandissant entre eux trois devra attendre. La mission à venir exige toute l’attention de l’équipe. Ils sont sur le point de découvrir quelque chose d’énorme et ils ont gravement sous-estimé l’ennemi…

Feuerprobe des Schicksals

Wandel des Herzens | Buch 4

In der geheimen Stadt Sobek nimmt Domin Thorne seine Arbeit auf als neu erwählter Semel-aten, als Anführer der Welt der Werpanther. Er plant große Veränderungen - er hat sich selbst und den Freunden, die er mitgebracht hat, hohe Ziele gesetzt, um seine Herrschaft nach der seines Freundes Logan Church zu gestalten. Doch Domins Ziele sind vielleicht zu hoch gesetzt, denn die Art, wie er seine Regentschaft führt, scheint nicht zu funktionieren.

Während er sich mit einem heimwehkranken Crane, einem launischen Mikhail, einem peitschenschwingenden Taj, Dienern mit Mordgedanken, einem Ex sowie einem Gefährten auf einer gefährlichen Mission herumschlägt, steht er mit der Frage, wie er mit seiner neuen Rolle umgehen soll, alleine da. Außerdem muss er herausfinden, wie er eine Verschwörung zerschlagen kann. Und all das, während er sich immer mehr in einen Mann verliebt, der - zum ersten Mal in Domins Leben - diese Gefühle auch erwidert.

Ob Domin bereit ist oder nicht, das Schicksal hält eine Lektion für ihn bereit: Die Gefahren von innen sind mindestens genauso bedrohlich wie die von außen.

Hockey Ever After | Book 4

When Liam Belanger gets a professional tryout with the Miami Caimans, he’s hoping to land a roster spot that’ll keep him from bussing tables. If he can make the team and score a tryout in bed with Russ Lyons, the veteran defenseman who’s appointed himself Liam’s mentor, that would be the icing on the sweet hockey cake.

Living life by a strict set of rules has worked out well for Russ. He has a great career, great friends, and a great family, even if they do keep setting him up with hometown honey traps. But he can’t stop time, and now, despite all his planning, he’s looking at his last year with the Caimans before the uncertainty of free agency. Maybe that’s why he finds sunny, free-spirited Liam so attractive. 

He’s still not going to sleep with his rookie.

Probably.

Liam starts the season in the minors, but it’s not long before he gets a shot at the Big Show. His year is shaping up to be a dream come true—even before Russ picks up on Liam’s passes and proves defensemen can score too.

Port in a Storm

Sinners Series

San Francisco SWAT Lieutenant Connor Morgan and Crossroads Gin drummer Forest Ackerman make an odd couple. Connor, an Irish-born cop from a tight-knit family, never imagined he’d find his happily-ever-after with a raised-on-the-streets musician, but Forest had the gentlest soul he’d ever met. After a long, hard road of heartbreak, murder, and trouble, they fell hard in love and married.

Then Fate intervenes and throws their lives into a chaos neither one of them is prepared for.

During a brutal SWAT raid, Connor stumbles on Tate, an abused, vulnerable little boy caught in a shoot-out with his father’s drug-running gang. As heavy fire riddles the walls, an injured Connor rescues Tate from the fray… only to be struck numb when a caseworker pries a sobbing Tate from his arms.

Scarred from his own childhood experiences, Forest doubts he can be a good enough father, but Connor assures him they can give Tate what he needs and more. Soon they are on an insane ride where trust and affection are hard-earned, especially when coming from a little boy raised in society’s filthiest gutters. Facing down every challenge thrown their way, they battle to give Tate what Connor treasures and Forest never had—a family to call his own.

Jake  Brenner muss sich erst mal die Hörner abstoßen, ehe er daran denken kann, sich zu verlieben. Abgesehen davon, ist er viel zu beschäftigt mit seiner Band, den Wayward Sons, um sich auf die Suche nach der großen Liebe zu machen.

Aber das war, bevor der geheimnisvolle Streuner Parker McAvoy sich als neuer Leadgitarrist der Band eingeschrieben hatte.

Er kann die Anziehungskraft, die der süße, schusselige Parker auf ihn ausübt, nur eine gewisse Zeit lang verleugnen, ehe er sein Verlangen, etwas deswegen zu unternehmen, nicht mehr länger ignorieren kann.

Das denkt Jake jedenfalls, bis eine Reihe von miteinander verbundenen Ereignissen ihm vielversprechende neue Einsichten verschafft. Kann er Parker überzeugen, über seine schillernde Vergangenheit hinwegzusehen und ihm eine Chance zu geben? Oder wird dieses Liebeslied verklingen, ehe es überhaupt begonnen hat?
