Sein neuester Auftrag bringt den Kriminalbeamten Brandt in eine unangenehme Lage: Er soll Undercover bei einer Organisation vorsprechen, die Online-Sexfilme produziert und dafür muss er nackt vor der Kamera posieren. Glücklicherweise steht ihm sein Partner und bester Freund Donnelly immer treu zur Seite – ob es darum geht, in Schwulenboutiquen Reizwäsche zu shoppen oder ihn während seiner Recherchen auf Pornowebsites zu ermutigen und mit Jägermeister zu versorgen.

Aller Demütigung zum Trotz liefert Brandt bei dem Vorsprechen seinen besten „Schuss“ ab – und wird über Nacht zur Sensation. Aber um den Mann hinter der Organisation zu treffen, muss er noch eine weitere Vorstellung geben – dieses Mal für den Höchstbietenden live vor der Webcam. Um seinen Partner zu schützen, gewinnt Donnelly die Auktion, aber ihr Plan hat einen Haken: Sie müssen die Nummer bis zum bitteren Ende durchziehen.

Danach fühlt sich Brandt zutiefst erniedrigt. Er versucht, damit ins Reine zu kommen, was er für seinen Job tun musste und Ruhe in sein Gefühlschaos zu bringen. Aber auch für Donnelly war diese Ermittlung die reinste Entdeckungsreise. Plötzlich wird alles, was die beiden Männer über sich und den anderen zu wissen glaubten, über den Haufen geworfen. Dabei haben sie doch eigentlich noch einen Fall zu lösen – aber der sieht möglicherweise ganz anders aus, als sie dachten.

A Stars from Peril Novel

For a singer and a spy, love might be mission impossible.

Jaxon Powers has what most only dream of. Fame. Fortune. Gold records and Grammy awards. Lavish hotel suites and an endless parade of eager bedmates. He’s adored all over the world—even in the remote, repressive country of Vasnytsia, where the tyrannical dictator is a big fan. The State Department hopes a performance might improve US relations with a dangerous enemy. But it means Jaxon’s going in alone… with one exception.

Secret agent Reid Stanfill has a covert agenda with global ramifications. Duty means everything to him, even when it involves protecting a jaded rock star. Jaxon and Reid’s mutual attraction is dangerous under Vasnytsia’s harsh laws—and matters get even worse when they’re trapped inside the borders. Romance will have to wait… assuming they make it out alive.

L’agente speciale dell’FBI Rain Christiansen era il golden boy dell’agenzia, ma gli è bastato un momento di debolezza, una piccola, minuscola, infinitesimale apparizione paranormale per diventare, all’improvviso, l’imbarazzo del Bureau. Da agente speciale ad agente spettrale. Il suo capo gli dà un’ultima occasione per redimersi: deve andare a Brickell Bay, fare il bravo con il dipartimento di polizia locale, e lasciarsi alle spalle gli avvistamenti di fantasmi. Rain è determinato a fare proprio quello, costi quel che costi.

Il detective Daniel McKenna si occupa dei *cold case*, i casi irrisolti, ma la sua ultima indagine si è arenata. Sono passati cinque anni da quando la studentessa delle superiori Amy Greene è scomparsa dopo essersi allontanata dal suo posto di lavoro part-time, e da allora nessuno l’ha più vista. Daniel è contento di ricevere finalmente l’aiuto che aveva richiesto all’FBI, anche se l’agente incaricato è proprio il suo ex.

Rain non può negarlo: si sta innamorando di nuovo di Danny, ammesso che abbia mai smesso di amarlo, e questo genera una tensione che rende difficile risolvere il caso. I fantasmi che lo perseguitano dietro ogni angolo e un’indagine che non rivela piste contribuiscono alla frustrazione, al punto che Rain comincia a chiedersi se le seconde opportunità e il lieto fine non siano solo favole.

Ceaton Mercer, tueur à gages pour la mafia, a tué beaucoup de gens de plein de façons différentes – les deux derniers corps ayant été cachés dans la cabane de jardin d’un biologiste marin au cœur tendre dans une communauté insulaire idyllique –, mais au fond, il n’est pas un si mauvais gars. Avec le temps il a fini par se trouver un foyer, en quelque sorte, et il a même appris qu’il s’était fait une place dans le cœur des personnes avec qui il travaille… au moins assez pour qu’ils ne lui tirent pas une balle en pleine tête parce qu’il a fait son temps aux yeux du patron.

Mais il n’aurait jamais pensé qu’un jour puisse changer sa vie, et il est sur le point de découvrir à quel point il avait tort.

Parce qu’en une seule journée, il rencontre l’homme qui semble être le seul et unique, l’amour de sa vie. C’est une idée improbable – un homme qui tue pour vivre trouvant l’amour –, mais c’est comme si c’était censé se produire. Ce jour devient de plus en plus étrange et les problèmes s’accumulent, forçant Ceaton à s’interroger plus profondément sur sa vie morne et à accepter qu’un jour peut tout changer, lui en particulier. Son futur est peut-être plus heureux qu’il l’espérait – s’il est capable de rester en vie assez longtemps pour le découvrir.

Eigentlich könnte  Miro Jones sein Leben in vollen Zügen genießen. Er hat einen aufregenden Job als US Deputy Marshal, der ihn erfüllt, sein wunderschönes Greystone in einem Vorort von Chicago, seine geliebte Wahlfamilie und am allerwichtigsten: den Mann, der sein Herz erobert hat, Ian Doyle. Gäbe es da nicht ein Problem: Ian ist nicht nur ein Marshal und beruflich wie privat Miros Partner – Ian ist auch Soldat mit Leib und Seele. Diese Verpflichtung führt ihn immer wieder fort von Miros Seite, unerwartet und viel zu oft. Das wirft einen Schatten auf etwas, das sonst alles wäre, was Miro sich je hätte erträumen können.

Die Arbeit ist nicht dieselbe ohne Ian. Zuhause ist nicht dasselbe und Miro muss sich seinen Ängsten allein stellen … wie kann er im Beruf die Nerven behalten, wie die dunkle Bedrohung aus seiner Vergangenheit überstehen – und wie kann er ohne Ians unerschütterliche Gegenwart an seiner Seite weiterleben? Sein Leben ist ein ziemlicher Schlamassel, aber was ist, wenn der Ausweg daraus etwas Dauerhaftes erfordert? Was würde das für ihn und Ian bedeuten? Miro steckt in der Zwickmühle und manchmal ist der einzige Weg aus dem Schlamassel, sich an seine Rettungsleine zu klammern und fest zu ziehen.

Quando si lavora per la mafia, può capitare di dover uccidere molte persone in tanti modi diversi. Ceaton Mercer ha stivato gli ultimi due cadaveri in un capanno degli attrezzi che appartiene a un adorabile ricercatore marino che abita in un’idilliaca comunità isolana, ma non è poi così cattivo. Con il tempo si è trovato una specie di casa e forse anche un posto nel cuore delle persone con cui lavora, o almeno quanto basta perché non gli piantino un proiettile in testa quando smette di essere utile per il boss.

Ma non ha mai immaginato che un solo giorno potesse cambiargli la vita, ed è sul punto di scoprire quanto si sbaglia.

Gli basta un giorno per incontrare l’uomo che sembra essere quello giusto, l’amore della sua vita. Sembra inconcepibile che un uomo che si occupa di morte possa trovare l’amore, ma è come se fosse destino. Gli basta un giorno, che si fa sempre più strano e in cui i problemi si accumulano, per costringere Ceaton a riflettere sulla sua cupa esistenza e ad accettare che in ventiquattro ore tutto può cambiare, perfino lui stesso. Il suo futuro potrebbe rivelarsi più luminoso di quanto si aspettasse, ma dovrà restare vivo abbastanza a lungo da scoprirlo.

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….

Leur joie conjugale vient d’en prendre un coup, mais Jory ne laissera personne lui retirer sa famille. Avant de savoir ce que c’est d’avoir un foyer, il aurait pris ses jambes à son cou. Mais plus maintenant. Il sait que Sam et lui doivent affronter les choses ensemble, parce que c’est la seule façon dont ils pourront s’en sortir.
