The Open Series: Book Two

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.

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.

Sequel to Cutting Cords

Five years into their relationship, Sloan Driscoll’s peaceful existence is suddenly upended. His lover, Cole Fujiwara, gives him an ultimatum: agree to a surrogate birth or break up. Noriko Evans, a beautiful woman of Japanese/American descent, is handpicked by Cole’s father to be the surrogate. At the same time, Trent Hamilton, model and established Dominant, sets his eyes on Sloan, offering him another life choice.

Sloan is thrown off balance by this series of events he can neither understand nor control. He’d thought the topic of children had been laid to rest years ago, but with the advent of a new form of genetic testing, Cole’s fear of passing on retinitis pigmentosa, a disease that leads to blindness, has been greatly reduced. Noriko’s abrupt appearance threatens Sloan, as does Sloan’s attraction to Trent and a side of the BDSM world he’d never thought to explore.

Will Sloan be able to muster the inner strength he’ll need to deal with one shocking revelation after another, or will he succumb to a dangerous coping mechanism?  His decisions will either lead to salvation... or hasten the end of the relationship that literally saved his life.

On New Year’s Eve, Cole Fujiwara stands vigil at his father’s deathbed while his surrogate wife, Noriko, gives birth to twins. As Cole contemplates his future, he acknowledges that he’s living his father’s dream… and that he’s probably destroyed his chance at happiness with Sloan, the love of his life.

Finding harmony in an emerging D/s relationship has not been without issue for Sloan Driscoll and his Master, Trent Hamilton.  Their journey has been littered with mishaps, but their powerful love and sexual connection continue to bind them together—until Sloan comes face to face with Cole for the first time in nine months.

The meeting means different things to each of them. To Cole, it’s the first step on the path to a reunion. To Sloan, it’s a terrible mistake, one he confesses immediately. As for Trent, the bitter realization that a connection between the former lovers still exists forces him to issue an ultimatum.  Is Sloan willing to do anything to prove their relationship is worth saving, including becoming Trent’s 24/7 slave? And if Sloan stays with Trent, how can Cole ever hope to find happiness again?

Un libro della serie Orizzonti

Quello che sarebbe dovuto essere un breve interludio diventa qualcosa di più profondo quando Lil Lampert incontra Grier Dilorio alla Degustazione di Chicago. Lil è in città a far visita ai suoi buoni amici Jody Williams e Clark Stevens, e non aveva intenzione di rimorchiare un uomo più giovane e scoprire un reciproco interesse per l’architettura, il design d’interni, e una perversione sessuale unica che fa tornare Lil per saperne di più.

In apparenza, Grier è la quintessenza del “bad boy” che ama la velocità, i tatuaggi e la pelle; ma Lil scopre lentamente un altro lato della sua personalità: altruista, responsabile e tenero, soprattutto con Luca, il figlio che ha dovuto rinnegare. Con l’amore e il sostegno di Lil, Grier prenderà una decisione chiave per aprire la porta a un possibile futuro insieme, un futuro che include la paternità, qualcosa che Lil ha sognato ma non ha mai osato esplorare.

Buch 1 in der Serie - Horizonte

Der College-Footballspieler Clark Stevens, ein beliebter Wide Receiver mit Aussicht auf einen Vertrag in der NFL, hat eine Menge Probleme. Er hat eine eifersüchtige Freundin, einen engstirnigen und herrschsüchtigen Vater, eine Aufmerksamkeitsstörung, und er verspürt eine unerwartete, starke Anziehung zu dem Notarzt – dem männlichen Notarzt – der ihn wegen eines gebrochenen Arms behandelt.

Dr. Jody Williams empfängt widersprüchliche Signale. Er kann nicht ignorieren, wie sehr er sich zu Clark hingezogen fühlt, denn es ist offensichtlich, dass Clark ebenso empfindet. Für den stolzen, geouteten Arzt ist die Lösung denkbar einfach. Für Clark ist sie das nicht. Seine Welt ist alles andere als schwulenfreundlich und die Hindernisse, denen er sich gegenübersieht, ließen ihn seine Sexualität viele Jahre lang verleugnen.

Es ist der Superbowl der Katastrophen, egal, wie man es dreht und wendet. Am Ende muss Clark entscheiden, ob er an dem Leben festhält, das er kennt, oder ob er es riskiert, ein neues mit Jody zu beginnen.

Serie Orizzonti, Libro 1

Il giocatore di football del college Clark Stevens è un wide receiver popolare con un potenziale contratto nella NFL, ma ha qualche problema: una ragazza gelosa, un padre dispotico e dalla mente ristretta, un deficit dell’attenzione e un’attrazione potente e inaspettata per l’ortopedico, maschio, che gli cura un osso rotto.

Il dottor Jody Williams sta ricevendo dei segnali davvero contraddittori. Non può ignorare quanto desidera Clark, perché è ovvio che il giocatore prova lo stesso per lui. Per il medico, gay dichiarato e orgoglioso di esserlo, la soluzione sembra molto semplice. Per Clark, invece, non lo è. Il suo mondo non è tollerante e gli ostacoli che ha affrontato lo hanno portato a negare la sua sessualità per anni.

È il Super Bowl dei disastri, non importa da che punto di vista lo si guardi. Alla fine, Clark deve decidere se continuare con l’unica vita che ha sempre conosciuto o se cogliere l’occasione di viverne una nuova con Jody.

Lo que debería haber sido un breve interlvalo de vacaciones se convierte en algo más profundo cuando Lil Lampert conoce a Grier Dilorio en la feria de Los sabores de Chicago. Lil está de paso en la ciudad visitando a sus buenos amigos, Jody Williams y Clark Stevens, sin ninguna intención de relacionarse con un hombre más joven y descubrir un amor mutuo por la arquitectura, el diseño de interiores y unas preferencias sexuales muy peculiares que lo tienen enganchado y con necesidad de más.

A todas luces, Grier es el clásico chico malo al que le encanta la velocidad, los tatuajes y el cuero, pero poco a poco Lil va descubriendo su otra faceta: desinteresado, responsable y tierno, especialmente con Luca, el hijo al que tuvo que negar. Con el amor y el apoyo de Lil, Grier tomará una decisión clave para abrir la puerta a un posible futuro juntos, uno que incluya la paternidad, algo con lo que Lil había soñado pero que nunca se había atrevido a explorar.

Un libro della serie Orizzonti.

Sei mesi dopo essersi incontrati alla Degustazione di Chicago, Lil Lampert e Grier Dilorio vivono insieme. Il loro legame fisico è forte più che mai, ma la coppia capisce presto che servono più di due magiche parole e del sesso straordinario per far funzionare una relazione.

Come un uccellino che ha appena lasciato il nido, Grier sta imparando come condurre la sua nuova vita. I suoi problemi sarebbero dovuti finire quando Jillian ha firmato i documenti che lo riconoscono come padre biologico di Luca e quando ha avuto l’opportunità di inseguire la carriera di designer d’interni. Invece, è ostacolato da vecchi timori e cattive abitudini che sono difficili da abbandonare.

Adeguarsi a un piccolo appartamento in uno stato con quattro stagioni – con un uomo più giovane di lui dal temperamento testardo – è una sfida per Lil. Fare il “Papi” di Luca significa trovare una sorta di equilibrio delicato tra quello che lui pensa sia giusto e il dover fare affidamento agli otto anni di esperienza di Grier.

La vita è abbastanza stressante, ma ora Lil e Grier affrontano anche una complicanza inaspettata creata da un’autorità influente, potente e radicale. Improvvisamente, la sicurezza di Luca e la felicità della famiglia che si sta formando dipendono dalla profonda comprensione della natura umana di Lil e dalla voglia di imparare di Grier.
