Beurteile ein Buch nie nach seinem Cover ...

Über einsneunzig groß und mit einem trainierten Körper, ist es der Fabrikarbeiter Donavan Gregory gewohnt, dass Menschen ihn für dominant halten. Doch irren sie sich und Donavans Begehren, seine unterwürfige Seite zu erkunden, bleibt unerfüllt. 

Kleiner und älter als Donavan, mag Dr. Seth Manning zwar nicht wie der typische Dom wirken, doch als die beiden sich auf dem Pride kennenlernen, stellt Donavan fest, dass Seth sein perfektes Gegenüber sein könnte. Das Problem ist, dass Donavan kaum Erfahrungen mit der BDSM-Welt hat. Und was könnte ein gelehrter, gut aussehender und selbstbewusster Mann wie Seth schon in ihm sehen? Seth muss ihn überzeugen, dass sie trotz aller offensichtlichen Unterschiede wenigstens in ihren Neigungen bestens zusammenpassen.

Calculated Magic

Dreamspun Beyond

Never too late for love.

Three-hundred-and-fifty-year-old warlock Tikron must find his true love or forfeit his immortality. But if he hasn’t found his ideal mate in all these centuries, the prospects don’t look too bright.

That is, until he sees mathematician Richard Beaumont. It’s love at first sight and Tikron’s future just go a whole lot brighter. 

Except Richard doesn’t believe in love at first sight. He doesn't believe in love at all. He certainly doesn’t believe in magic. His life is ruled by statistics and logic, and they tell him a relationship with Tikron has only a 10 percent chance of success. That’s unacceptable—even if the attraction between them is off the charts.

With his powers waning and the clock ticking down, Tikron’s last hope is showing Richard the true meaning of magic.

The Underground Club

Going Off Grid

States of Love | North Dakota

Clay and Elliott are working toward a dream—working sixty-hour weeks for one of the oil companies that recently sprung up in North Dakota. The pay is good, but is it a fair trade for never seeing each other? The point becomes moot when the company folds, like so many others, and the couple is left with a difficult choice.

Should they find comparable work somewhere else, or is it time to throw caution to the wind and go after their goal—years earlier than they intended?

What they’ve always wanted is to be together and have time to enjoy it, so they follow their hearts. They’re going off the grid and fixing up an old cabin so they can be self-sufficient. But when they go from all the conveniences of the modern world to outhouses, solar power, a shoestring budget, and more mosquitos than they ever thought possible, will they find there’s such a thing as too much time together?

States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

La promesse d’un job de rêve attire Murphy à Tampa. Mais il revient brutalement sur terre lorsqu’il découvre que l’offre est provisoirement suspendue. À présent, il n’a plus que deux choix : retourner en douce dans le Michigan, la queue entre les jambes, ou rester dans le coin et chercher du travail.

Les choses s’améliorent quand il se rend dans un coffee shop et apprend que le propriétaire cherche justement quelqu’un pour rénover l’appartement du dessus. Il accepte le job avec joie avant de réaliser qu’il a déjà fait la connaissance de Joe Sterling, le propriétaire du Kaffeinate, lors de sa première soirée dans un club de Tampa.

Murphy et Joe sont tous les deux francs, fiers et passionnés. Ni l’un ni l’autre ne cherche de relation, même s’ils sont bien obligés de reconnaître qu’ils s’accordent aussi bien que le café et les beignets, en dépit de leurs caractères. Jusqu’à ce que Joe réalise que Murphy doit travailler pour une société qui représente une menace pour l’environnement et pour les entreprises de la région – et si Murphy ne change pas très vite d’avis, Joe ne voudra plus rien avoir à faire avec lui, condamnant entre eux toute possibilité d’obtenir leur happy-end tant espéré.

La promessa del lavoro dei suoi sogni spinge Murphy a trasferirsi in Florida, ma al suo arrivo lo aspetta un brusco risveglio: il progetto è sospeso. Si trova perciò davanti a un bivio: tornarsene in Michigan con la coda tra le gambe o restare per trovare un altro lavoro? Le sue prospettive sembrano migliorare quando entra in un bar e scopre che il proprietario sta cercando qualcuno per ristrutturare l’appartamento al piano superiore. Accetta con gioia l’incarico, per rendersi conto solo in un secondo momento che ha già conosciuto Joe Sterling, il proprietario di Kaffeinate: la prima sera in città lo ha rimorchiato in un club.

Murphy e Joe sono entrambi orgogliosi, passionali e schietti. Nessuno dei due è alla ricerca di una relazione, sebbene non possano negare che le loro personalità si sposino come caffè e ciambelle. Il loro rapporto si incrina quando Joe scopre che Murphy è stato assunto dalla società che ritiene stia cercando di danneggiare le imprese del quartiere e l’ambiente. Finché Murphy continua a lavorare per loro, Joe non vuole avere nulla a che fare con lui, mettendo così a rischio la speranza di un inaspettato lieto fine.

Limitless

The Underground Club

An Underground Club Tale

Even within the context of the Underground BDSM Club, Joshua’s desires are dark and extreme. Hopelessly addicted to pain and the high it gives him, he has no limits. Joshua would quite literally rather die than use a safeword, and he accepts that might be his fate. As much as he depends on others, he has yet to find a man who can gain his trust, and he has little hope that he ever will.

For Nash, acquiring Joshua from another Dom at the club is only the first step in what will be a long and arduous road to lure the young man back from the brink of self-destruction. He must do the impossible and win Joshua’s trust, and he must be the one to set limits in their exploration—something he’s unaccustomed to as a Dom. But Nash knows dominance doesn’t always mean pushing a submissive’s boundaries. It’s about establishing a bond and fulfilling another man’s needs. In Joshua’s case, he’ll have to strike a balance between meeting the young man’s expectations and drawing firm lines that will save Joshua from himself.
