Qui es-tu, Chyna ?

Perspectives | Tome 4

Perspectives, tome 4

À l’approche de son quarante-cinquième anniversaire, Lil Lampert éprouve une terrible anxiété de vieillir. Pour l’aider à retrouver goût à la vie, son partenaire, Grier Dilorio, lui propose un voyage en amoureux en Italie. Cette absence tombe plutôt mal, car leur fils, Luca vient d’entrer à l’école secondaire. Il est confié à ses oncles d’adoption, Clark Stevens, des Chicago Bears, et Jody Williams. 

Grandir entre deux couples gays a donné à Luca une perspective de la vie assez unique, sans pour autant lui permettre de répondre aux questions qu’il se pose concernant son orientation sexuelle. Après plusieurs années d’un béguin secret pour son meilleur ami, Chip Davidson, voilà que Luca s’intéresse à sa jumelle, la rousse Chyna. Alors qu’il se croyait gay, peut-être est-il bisexuel finalement. 

Chyna est né intersexué, c’est-à-dire avec un rare syndrome génétique d’ambiguïté de genre. Biologiquement, c’est un garçon, mais sa mère, troublée par une crise de dépression post-partum, l’a déclaré à la naissance en tant que fille et l’élève depuis lors dans le mensonge. La puberté arrivant, Chyna a de plus en plus de mal à dissimuler son secret, d’autant plus que sa forte attirance pour Luca lui déclenche d’étranges réactions.

Luca saura-t-il, malgré sa jeunesse, accepter une vérité troublante et aider Chyna à découvrir sa véritable identité, ou bien va-t-il renoncer au premier écueil et réduire à néant le rêve de bonheur d’un adolescent à la dérive ?

Un posto | Libro 1

Serie Un posto, Libro 1

Dopo una relazione durata vent’anni e a sole due settimane da una crociera a lungo attesa da entrambi, il marito di Seth Wilder si suicida. La coppia non aveva stipulato una polizza di annullamento e Seth non può chiedere un rimborso. Bryce McFarland, compagno di palestra di suo marito, comprende la situazione e, quando Seth glielo chiede, acconsente ad accompagnarlo, per permettergli di recuperare il denaro e non essere costretto a cancellare i suoi piani. È una gentilezza inaspettata, che Seth accetta con gratitudine.

I due non hanno niente in comune. Seth è un solitario autore di romanzi, mentre Bryce è un incallito utente di Grindr che trova difficile impegnarsi seriamente. Per necessità, e nonostante le differenze in apparenza insormontabili tra loro, i due sviluppano un incerto rapporto. Con il proseguire del viaggio attraverso le Isole Britanniche, Bryce aiuta Seth a fare i conti con la morte improvvisa del compagno, mentre Seth scopre a sua volta le cause della fobia di Bryce.

Le relazioni nate in crociera raramente funzionano e sarebbe sensato resistervi, nonostante la tensione erotica. Ma la luna piena e le brezze di fine estate favoriscono le situazioni impossibili, facendo cadere le barriere e sbocciare un nuovo amore.

Being With Him

Horizons Series

A Horizons Series Novella

Zeb Araneda leaves his privileged but closely supervised life in the Philippines to study architecture at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where his new roommate is openly gay Luca Dilorio.

Alex Boulet is a successful print model who appears to have it all, but on closer inspection, the ready smile never reaches his mesmerizing green eyes. Tired of living alone, Alex moves in with fellow model Chyna Davidson, Luca’s boyfriend.

Away from his father’s watchful eye, and with Luca’s help, Zeb learns to navigate his new environment, and experiences freedom of choice for the first time. This fresh perspective allows him to step out of his comfort zone and act on his attraction to Alex.

The holiday season has always been difficult for Alex. Sappy commercials tug at his heart, and storefront windows depict idealized scenes that remind him of what he’ll never have: a loving partner willing to accept his truth. Will this Christmas be another disappointment, or will Santa finally make his wish come true?

By the time Seth Wilder and Bryce McFarland return to Chicago after their UK cruise, they’re halfway in love. They decide to move in together to see if their feelings can survive in the real world.

Seth receives word that a mandatory autopsy was performed on his late partner because his death was a suicide. The medical examiner’s findings are disturbing and leave some doubt as to the underlying cause of death.

Because of the suicide clause, life insurance benefits had been denied, but in light of these new findings, Seth’s lawyer advises him to appeal. The insurance investigator turns out to be the man who broke Bryce’s heart twenty-five years ago. The guy has fallen on hard times, and when he sees how successful Bryce has become—and how large Seth’s potential payout might be—he decides he wants a piece of the pie. Bryce and Seth’s new relationship is severely tested in this second novel in the Open Series.

Open Seating

The Open Series | Book One

The Open Series: Book One

Seth Wilder lost his partner of twenty years to suicide two weeks before a long-anticipated cruise. Cancellation insurance was never purchased, and Seth can’t get a refund. Bryce McFarland, his late partner’s gym buddy, appreciates his predicament, and when asked, agrees to accompany him on the trip. This way, Seth recoups the money and doesn’t have to cancel his plans. The gesture is unexpected but accepted gratefully.

The two men have nothing in common. Seth is a reclusive romance writer, and Bryce is a hard-core Grindr user with major commitment issues. Out of necessity and despite the seemingly insurmountable differences in personality, they develop a tentative rapport. As they begin their journey through the UK, Bryce helps Seth come to terms with his partner’s sudden death while Seth, in turn, discovers the root cause of Bryce’s phobia.

Shipboard romances rarely work. Sensible men resist, sexual tension notwithstanding. But a full moon and late summer breezes lend themselves to the impossible situation, barriers are crossed, and a love affair is kindled.

In June of 1978, Grady Ormond, eighteen-year-old son of diplomat Peter Ormond, accompanies his father to his new posting as US Ambassador to Pakistan. Neighboring Iran is on the brink of a civil war, with the monarchy in danger of being overthrown.

Grady will be leaving for New York City in late August to study cinematography and has been warned to keep his homosexual orientation tightly under wraps while on vacation. Repercussions in the predominantly Islamic region could be severe.

On their first night in Karachi, his father hosts a cocktail party to meet the local dignitaries. Grady is introduced to His Highness Prince Kamran Izadi, nephew of the shah of Iran. Twenty-three-year-old Kamran has recently returned from the UK, where he spent eleven years, first as a student, and then as a financial analyst.

The attraction is immediate—unforeseen and dangerously powerful—but neither one dares to make a move. Odds are so stacked against them it's futile to even entertain a friendship, but they do, and their world tilts precariously.

With his country in turmoil and Grady about to leave for college, Kamran makes a decision that will change their lives forever.
