Thick & Thin

Sequel to Smoke & Mirrors

 

THIRDS: Book Eight

In a matter of days, Dex has been kidnapped, tortured, killed, revived, become half-Therian, offered the chance to become a spy, and accepted a proposal to marry his jaguar Therian boyfriend, Sloane Brodie. Dex is still trying to wrap his head around everything, but he has to move forward. After the events of Smoke & Mirrors, Dex and Sloane find themselves in one of the most frightening situations of all: revealing the truth to their Destructive Delta family. When the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same, and it’s up to Dex to prove that in the face of change, the one thing that remains the same is family. 

 

Gummy Bears & Grenades

A THIRDS Novella

THIRDS agent Dexter J. Daley can’t wait to marry his fiancé, Team Leader Sloane Brodie, but first he’s looking forward to celebrating his bachelor party—which he intends to be a shenanigans-free evening of getting his groove on with family and friends.

Of course events don’t work out as planned, but for Dex that’s nothing new. One thing is for sure, dodging drug dealers and hired thugs amid booze, dancing—and even a bear costume—will guarantee it’s a night Dex will never forget. Now he just needs to survive all the fun.

Enjoy this bonus story from the THIRDS universe. These events occur between Darkest Hour Before Dawn and Tried & True in the series timeline. While reading this story would enhance your experience of the THIRDS series, it is not essential to read before Tried & True.

Perfektes Timing

Timing (Deutsch)

Timing: Nach Sonnenuntergang

Zwei Jahre, nachdem Stefan Joss mit Ranchbesitzer Rand Holloway in den Sonnenuntergang geritten ist, hat er sich mit seinem neuen Leben angefreundet und unterrichtet an einem Community College. Aber wahre Liebe hat es oft schwer. Rand will, dass er auf der Ranch bleibt, Stef will sich ein Hintertürchen offenhalten, falls Rand ihn irgendwann rauswerfen sollte. Nachdem er endlich erkannt hat, dass er sich Rand gegenüber unfair verhält, legt Stef sich fest und sein Partner ist überglücklich.

Als Stef die Gelegenheit bekommt, seine Hingabe zu beweisen, zögert er nicht - auch wenn er dabei seinen Hals riskiert - und Rand nutzt die Gelegenheit, um allen zu zeigen, dass die besten Überraschungen des Lebens nach Sonnenuntergang passieren.

 

Wenn der Staub sich legt

Glenn Holloways berechenbares Leben endete an jenem Tag, als er seiner Familie gestand, dass er schwul ist. Dass er kurz darauf die Ranch, auf der er aufwuchs, verließ, um das Restaurant zu eröffnen, von dem er immer geträumt hatte, streute nur noch Salz in die Wunde. Ohne die Unterstützung seines Vaters und seines Bruders und zu stolz, um Hilfe von anderen zu akzeptieren, musste er ganz von vorne anfangen. Doch im Lauf der Zeit wendete sich das Blatt: Glenn führte sein Restaurant zum Erfolg, schuf sich ein neues Zuhause und ein Leben, auf das er stolz sein kann.

Doch trotz seines Erfolges ist die Entfremdung von den Holloways eine Wunde, die nicht richtig heilen will, und als er sich gezwungen sieht, einen erwiesenen Gefallen zurückzuzahlen, findet er sich in seinem schlimmsten Albtraum wieder. Gefangen in seinem einst gegebenen Versprechen kehrt Glenn zu seinen Wurzeln zurück, um seinem Halbbruder zu helfen, Rand Holloway, und wird mit Mac Gentry konfrontiert, einem Mann, der viel zu verlockend für Glenns Seelenfrieden ist. Es könnte alles in einer Katastrophe enden – einer Katastrophe für die zarten Annäherungen an eine Wiederversöhnung mit seiner Familie und für das Verlangen, von dem Glenn nicht einmal wusste, dass es in seinem Herzen ruht.

Road Trip Collection

The road to love is notoriously bumpy, full of twists and turns that can throw even the best driver. With obstacles around every corner, Sonny and MJ try to keep it between the lines in two tales that blend steamy romance with high-stakes action and intrigue.

 

Racing the Moon

Sonny runs moonshine the old-fashioned way. Too bad some fool blew up his road in the Carolina mountains, keeping him stuck, high and unfortunately dry.

Explosives expert and ecoterrorist MJ’s mission is to protect the environment by shutting down a logging company. An encounter with Sonny in the misty forest sheds a new light on his quest, but it’s not until Sonny drugs and kidnaps him for an impromptu holiday that their engines really start to rev.

 

Steam and Sunshine

A mission they can’t resist lures Sonny and MJ out of retirement when they get word of a man creating dangerous weapons for the government. They head to California to take him down.

What they find is Paddy, a physicist who doesn’t understand the scope of his own discovery, and Neil, his bodyguard. During a wild and unpredictable cross-country ride, an uneasy partnership develops between kidnappers and targets when the four men discover they have a common enemy.

Glenn Holloway a vu sa vie basculer le jour où il a avoué son homosexualité à sa famille. Comme si cela ne suffisait pas, il a aggravé son cas en quittant le ranch pour réaliser son rêve : ouvrir un restaurant.

Au fil des années, ses efforts ont été récompensés : son restaurant est un succès, il s’est forgé une nouvelle vie dont il peut être fier.

Malgré tout, il n’a pu oublier les Holloway. La blessure reste béante jusqu’au jour où son pire cauchemar se réalise. Pour rembourser une dette, Glenn est tenu d’endosser sa tenue de cowboy et de passer le weekend avec Rand Holloway et Mac Gentry, un homme qui, hélas, l’attire irrésistiblement.
