Robin sait bien qu’il ne peut pas donner son nouveau cœur à n’importe qui…

D’une greffe cardiaque à une rupture brutale, Robin a vécu bien des coups durs récemment, mais il sait désormais que la vie est courte et qu’il doit mordre dedans à pleines dents en profitant de chaque bouchée. Un poste au sein des Euro Pride Tours est pile le genre d’aventure qu’il recherche : il a la chance de voir le monde et de vivre un peu, mais l’amour ne l’intéresse pas. Il ne pense pas que son cœur puisse en prendre encore. 

Johan a peut-être déçu sa famille en voulant voler de ses propres ailes, mais quand il rencontre Robin, il n’a pas l’intention de le laisser tomber. Chaque homme est exactement ce dont l’autre a besoin pour se sentir entier à nouveau et, bien que Johan ne soit pas celui qu’imaginait Robin au départ, il est exactement ce que le médecin lui a prescrit pour faire battre son cœur. Comme leur voyage se poursuit en Allemagne, les deux hommes se rapprochent, mais l’arrivée de l’ancien partenaire de Robin pourrait bien prendre une mauvaise tournure.

415 Ink: Book Three

From the moment SFPD Detective Ruan Nicholls meets Ivo Rogers, he knows the tattoo artist is going to bring chaos to his neat, orderly life. A hellion down to the bone, Ivo is someone Ruan not only doesn’t understand, he’s not even sure he needs to. Everything about Ivo is vibrant, brash, cocky, and arrogant, and Ruan wants no part of him.

Or at least that’s the lie he tells himself when he damps down his desire for the social wild child life tosses into his path.

For Ivo Rogers, life revolves around two things—his family and 415 Ink, the tattoo shop he co-owns with his four brothers. His family might be stitched together by their battle scars from growing up in foster care, but their brotherhood is tight—and strong enough to hold Ivo together during the times when he falls apart.

Now Ivo faces a new challenge when he falls for a cop with an old-school mentality on how a man looks and acts. Ruan is the promise of a life Ivo thought he’d never have, but their clashing perspectives threaten any chance of a relationship. Being the family’s hellion makes it easy to be misunderstood, yet Ivo has faith Ruan will not only embrace who he is but love him as well.

A Coastal Carolina Novel

The first step is the hardest. After a scandal, New York political reporter Reed Barfield is lying low at the North Carolina coast, writing a story about the seafood industry. But it’s the harbor pilots on the Cape Fear River who capture his interest—men who jump across ten feet of open ocean to grab a rope ladder and guide huge container ships into port. Men like sexy but prickly Justin Vance. 

After surviving an abusive childhood and a tour in the Navy, Justin isn’t fazed by his dangerous job—it’s certainly easier to face than Reed’s annoying questions. Justin isn’t out at work, and he doesn’t need Reed digging into his personal life or his past. 

But Reed’s no stranger to using his considerable charm to get what he wants, and as he wears Justin down, they realize they have a lot in common—and that they like spending time together. Moving beyond that, though, will mean Justin confessing his sexuality and learning to trust Reed with his secrets—if Reed even decides to stay. Both men want a future together, but can they find the courage to take the first step?

Is it possible to have it all—even for a boy from a dying town of old cranberry bogs? Even for the son of religious zealots who will never accept his being gay? Even if his closeted boyfriend will never acknowledge their relationship and dates girls to distract people?

Nous reformons le groupe.

À ces quatre mots, un frisson glacé dévala le long de la colonne vertébrale de Miki St John, surtout quand ils émanaient avec une ferveur presque religieuse de son frère en tout, sauf par le sang, Damien Mitchell. Cependant, ces mots n’étaient rien, comparés à ce qu’il ajouta.

Et nous partons en tournée.

Quand Crossroads Gin prend la route, Damien espère que cela les rapprochera. Il y a quelque chose de magique dans le fait d’être en tournée, surtout lorsque vous voyagez dans une fourgonnette où il n’y a pas de roadies, de gérants ou d’amants pour servir de tampon. Le groupe est déjà proche, mais Damien sait qu’ils peuvent l’être davantage… des sortes de frères, pas uniquement liés par des liens familiaux, mais aussi par leur intense amour de la musique.

Tandis qu’ils voyagent d’un concert à l’autre, le groupe est hanté par des erreurs du passé et des démons personnels, mais ils continuent. Pour Miki, Damie, Forest et Rafe, la scène est l’endroit où ils prennent véritablement vie et la musique qu’ils jouent est aussi importante pour eux que l’air qu’ils respirent.

Mais les démons et les problèmes ne les laisseront pas tranquilles, au cours des kilomètres parcourus, le groupe fera face à ses plus grands défis : dépasser ses défauts les plus profonds et ne pas s’entre-tuer les uns les autres.

Once upon a time Nicolas Beckert was the boy who stole kisses from Jared Kumpel beneath the bleachers, but now Jared’s a pediatrician and Nick is the hospital CEO who won’t glance his way. Everything changes, however, when they’re stranded alone in a hospital elevator. Ten years of cold shoulders melt away in five hours of close contact, and old passions rekindle into hot flames.

Once out of the elevator, Jared has no intention of letting Nick get away. It’s clear he’s desperate for someone to give him space to let go of the reins, and Jared is happy to oblige. But Jared wants Nick as a lover in a full, open relationship, which is a step further than Nick is willing to go. They’ve traded kisses under the bleachers for liaisons in the boardroom… and it looks like the same arguments that drove them apart in high school might do the same thing now. 

Jared’s determined not to let that happen this time around. He won’t order Nick from his shell—he’ll listen to what his friend says he needs to feel safe. Maybe this time he can prescribe his lover a happy ever after.

Blake shows up at Cheever’s nonstop orgy to enforce some rules, but instead of a jaded punk, he finds a lost boy as talented at painting as Mackey is at song-making, and terrified to let anybody see the real him.

Both men have to make peace with being second banana in the public eye. Can they find the magic of coming absolute first with each other?
