Tales of the Harker Pack: Books One & Two

The Pack or the Panther

Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.

When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.

Wolf in Gucci Loafers

Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love him back—an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery, Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can't have.

Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.

Una doppia dose di maschio alfa potrebbe essere meglio di una.

Sebbene appena reduce da una relazione violenta con un bastardo, lo sguardo curioso di David Underwood cade su due giocatori sexy della squadra di pallavolo australiana, a Laguna Beach, mettendolo di nuovo nei guai. Eppure, quando quello schianto di Gareth Marshall prova il proprio interesse per lui facendo coming out con la squadra, David soccombe all’attrazione per il pallavolista. Peccato che il partner di Gareth, Edge, attraente quanto il primo, farà della vita dei due amanti un inferno. 

Per Gareth, tutto il tempo passato a celare il proprio orientamento sessuale – e la propria attrazione – dal suo migliore amico, Edge, nonché da tutte le altre persone intorno a lui, non fa che acuire le ferite e aumentare la frustrazione. David è il primo uomo che riesce a competere con Edge per la sua passione. Ma anche Edge ha un segreto, e l’ex-ragazzo di David non demorderà finché non riavrà David alla sua mercé. Con tutti questi ostacoli, riuscirà mai un uomo gay di Laguna a trovare la felicità con un maschio alfa… o due?

A Balls to the Wall Romance

Renowned artist Rodney Mansfield stands five foot six, has pink hair, six earrings, a black belt in karate—and a desperate yearning for firefighter Hunter Fallon. But Rod, the Runtback of Notre Dame, knows he’ll never land the beautiful “straight gay” guy, so Rod musters his altruism and helps his more masculine friend Jerry attract Hunter. As if a broken heart wasn’t enough, Rod saves Hunter from a firehouse homophobe—humiliating Hunter in front of his dad!

Hunter lives a dream life—his father’s dream. While he’d like to teach literature in college, read poetry in the sun, and find a strong guy to top him, he fights fires for his dad. Hunter hates flamboyant guys like Rodney. So why can’t he resist him? Maybe it’s time to admit this is one flame he has no desire to put out.

A Balls to the Wall Anthology

Go balls to the wall again with a return to Laguna and the sexy men who chase the desires of their hearts—and their bodies—in newly edited and expanded tales of love overcoming all obstacles.

 

Beach Balls

Closeted attorney Adam James—who works for homophobic WMA Development—is about to learn there’s more to life than a fat paycheck when he meets sexy diver Sky Sea Mickeljohn. Sky stands for peace, love, the environment—and taking pride in his sexuality. With WMA threatening all that, can the two opposites find a way to meet in the middle?

 

FAST Balls

Jerry Wallender—firefighter, surfer, and nude model—might not be a rocket scientist, but he’s smart enough to realize it’s not hatred driving Fire Assist and Search Team Mick Cassidy’s homophobic remarks, but painful memories. And even though it might get him killed by his preacher father, Mick can’t fight his attraction to the kindest—and hottest—guy he’s ever met.

Sequel to Fire Balls

A Balls to the Wall Romance

Can two men with skewed self-images see their true reflections in each other’s eyes?

Jerry Wallender—firefighter, surfer, and occasional nude model—knows he’s no rocket scientist. So why does he keep choosing intellectual guys who make him feel dumber? He worked his buns off to overcome his reading disability and pass the firefighter’s test, and he loves everything about the job. Well, except for Mick Cassidy, the big, blond, hunky homophobe who harasses Jerry for being gay. But Jerry is smart enough to realize it’s not hate driving Mick, but the pain of a very unhappy upbringing.

Mick Cassidy, Firefighter Assist and Search Team, fights fires, but he can’t fight his attraction to the kindest, most generous—and sexiest—guy he’s ever met. Does that make him gay? If it does, he just might get himself killed by his gay-hating preacher father—and take Jerry down with him.

Un libro della serie Storie d'amore a Laguna

Jim Carney ha un lavoro a tempo pieno: fuggire da se stesso. Nato in una famiglia benestante, è scappato di casa a sedici anni dopo aver rovinato la vita del suo migliore amico per colpa di un fumetto yaoi. Da allora conduce una vita molto “virile”: lavora come operaio, si ubriaca e scansa ogni responsabilità. Ma quando il suo migliore amico, Billy Ballew, gli offre l’occasione di un avanzamento di carriera, Jim decide che per una volta nella vita vuole rendere qualcuno orgoglioso di lui. Purtroppo il nuovo lavoro comporta una visita medica preventiva, ed ecco che il suo sogno yaoi prende vita nelle sembianze del cardiologo Ken Tanaka. Jim scopre di avere ben due problemi di cuore: una valvola mitrale difettosa e una seria attrazione verso il suo dottore. Ma Ken Tanaka non è tipo da relazione stabile, e Jim potrebbe essere solo una delle sue tante conquiste. Ken trova Jim indimenticabile, ma quell’uomo è anche l’incubo della sua tradizionalissima famiglia giapponese. E com’è possibile che non appena Jim decide di diventare una persona responsabile si ritrova in mezzo a mille guai? Il suo fratellino ha bisogno di lui, una ricca donna d’affari gli fa una proposta che non può rifiutare, dovrà scendere a patti con il diavolo, e per di più si ritrova ricoverato all’ospedale… ma tutto ciò che Jim desidera è il Fante di cuori spezzati.

A Balls to the Wall Romance

Though only twenty-six, single father Theodore Walters lives with his head in the clouds and his feet firmly planted in reality. At the center of his life is Andy, his seven-year-old son, with whom he shares no DNA, though nobody—including his religious-fanatic in-laws—knows that, and Theodore will do anything to keep them from finding out. Theodore works hard to get his PhD and the tenure and salary that might follow to make a better life for Andy—but the head of his department thinks his dissertation on Jane Austen and romance novels is frivolous.

Theodore’s carefully planned life goes off the rails when he walks into a popular Laguna Beach bar and meets the bartender, “Snake” Erasmo, a pierced and tattooed biker who sends Theodore’s imagination—and libido—soaring. Snake has even more secrets than Theodore and couldn’t be a less “appropriate” match, but he might be the only guy with the skills to show Theodore that happily ever after is for real.

Ein Titel der Cowboys tun das nicht Serie

Rand McIntyre  begnügt sich mit ausreichender Zufriedenheit. Er liebt seine kleine Ranch in Kalifornien, seine Pferdezucht und den Reitunterricht mit den Kindern, die er vergöttert – für eigene Kinder und einen geliebten Menschen in seinem Leben müsste er sich outen und damit alles, was er sich erarbeitet hat, aufs Spiel setzen. Dann begleitet er trotz seiner Flugangst seine Eltern zu einem Urlaub nach Hana in Hawaii, wo er den dunkelhaarigen, geheimnisvollen Kai Kealoha kennenlernt, einen echten hawaiianischen Cowboy. Rand mag Kais junge Geschwister und lechzt nach Kai, doch der Mann ist stachliger als eine Krötenechse und undurchschaubarer als seine exotische Heimat.

Kai hat sich ein zurückgezogenes Leben aufgebaut, in dem er „seine“ Kinder beschützen kann, und sollte sich zu seinem und ihrem Wohl von dem großen, gut aussehenden Cowboy fernhalten. Nur wie viel Schaden kann ein Haole bei einem kurzen Urlaub schon anrichten? Als jedoch Kais schlimmste Befürchtungen und Rands dunkelste Albträume Wirklichkeit werden, gibt es nicht viel Hoffnung für zwei Cowboys, die sich nicht outen können – oder wollen.

A Cowboys Don’t Story

Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbors a big past and yearns for a small future. A short, bright career as a champion bull rider almost ended in his death when his homophobic father discovered Danny was gay. Now Danny longs for a plot of land he can build a ranch on, enough money to make up for some of the education he missed… and, secretly, a beautiful femme who likes to top—a combo rarer than a unicorn. 

Then onto the guest ranch where Danny works drives San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont, a young man so gorgeous he makes the horses gasp, and so ballsy he almost kills Danny’s attacker. Laurie’s trying to find his way out from under the thumb of a domineering mother, helpless father, and rich, privileged boyfriend. But no matter the attraction, their lives are worlds apart, and cowboys don’t ride unicorns.
