Ce que font les cowboys, numéro hors série 

Rand McIntyre  se contente d’une vie satisfaisante. Il aime son petit ranch en Californie, élever des chevaux et apprendre à monter aux enfants – mais pour avoir ses propres enfants et une personne à aimer, il serait obligé de révéler son homosexualité et cela mettrait en péril tout ce qu’il a construit. Un jour, malgré sa phobie de prendre l’avion, il part en vacances à Hana, Hawaii, avec ses parents et rencontre le ténébreux et mystérieux Kai Kealoha, un vrai cowboy hawaiien. Rand se prend d’affection pour le petit frère et la petite sœur de Kai autant qu’il s’éprend du jeune homme, mais Kai est plus piquant qu’un lézard à cornes et plus mystérieux que le territoire exotique dont il est originaire.

Kai tient à son intimité et vit pour protéger ses « enfants ». Pour le bien de tout le monde, il vaut mieux qu’il garde ses distances avec le beau et grand cowboy – mais comme cet homme n’est qu’un haole venu prendre de courtes vacances, peut-il vraiment causer des dommages ? Quand les plus grandes peurs de Kai et les cauchemars les plus atroces de Rand deviennent réalité, il y a peu d’espoir pour une relation entre deux cowboys qui ne peuvent pas – ou ne veulent pas – se révéler au grand jour.

Jim Carney a un travail à temps plein : se fuir lui-même. Depuis qu’il a quitté sa riche famille à seize ans, après avoir détruit la vie de son meilleur ami à cause de quelques mangas yaoi, Jim mène une existence d’ouvrier du bâtiment macho, avec un goût prononcé pour l’alcool et un rejet des responsabilités. C’est alors que Billy Ballew, l’homme qu’il admire le plus, lui donne l’occasion de prouver sa valeur en le nommant chef de chantier. Pour la première fois, Jim est déterminé à rendre quelqu’un fier.

Mais, alors qu’il s’apprête à passer un examen médical pour son nouveau travail, Jim voit son fantasme yaoi prendre vie en la personne du cardiologue Ken Tanaka.

Néanmoins, Ken est un vrai tombeur et Jim craint de n’être qu’une encoche de plus à son stéthoscope. Quant à Ken, Jim lui paraît inoubliable, mais il incarne le pire cauchemar de sa famille à cheval sur les traditions.

Pourquoi faut-il qu’au moment où il décide de se montrer responsable, Jim se retrouve à s’occuper de son petit frère, à recevoir une proposition de la part d’une femme aisée, signant ainsi un pacte avec le diable, et à finir à l’hôpital, quand il ne désire qu’une chose : son valet des cœurs brisés ?

Wendell “Wen” Darling lives in a world of shoulds and musts. Left to care for his brother and sister by his dull drudge of a father and wacko irresponsible mother, he suppresses his creativity, slaving in an ad agency seventy hours a week, letting his no-talent supervisor take the credit.

Then his bosses blow the campaign for their biggest client and Wen gets a chance to shine—but only if he can find the artist who painted a wild, glorious wall of graffiti in the subway.

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.

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.
