Die Timing Serie

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.

Off Stage: Sets One & Two

The grunge band Firefly was Trevor “Damian” Learner and Lenny Stevens’s dream since they were boys growing up in rural Ontario. They found the right people to live the dream with them, even landed the best representation in the business, but the higher their star rose, the harder it became to ignore their issues.

Now, needing guidance beyond what each other and their bandmates can offer, Damian and Lenny must let go of a relationship that’s hurting everyone around them and accept support from men who know what they need better than they do. Two submissives will never make each other happy without the dominance they both crave but can’t find in each other.

First Damian needs to get his life on the right path and accept the rules Stan sets forth for him. Then Lenny will have to step into the wings, leave the spotlight, and concentrate on his own well-being—and Vance’s guiding hand—before they can help the band reach its potential.

Dans les temps, tome 2 et 3

Bon timing pour un Rodéo

Deux ans après s’être installé dans le ranch que possède Rand Holloway, Stefan Joss a réussi à trouver un équilibre dans sa nouvelle vie, il est professeur à l’université locale. Mais le grand amour n’a rien d’un long fleuve tranquille. Rand le voudrait à la maison, au ranch, tandis que Stef tient à garder son autonomie au cas où son cow-boy le flanque à la porte. Réalisant soudain que ses doutes sont injustes, il s’engage totalement, ce qui rend Rand fou de joie.

Le jour où Stef voit sa chance de prouver son dévouement, il n’hésite pas, malgré les risques qu’il court. Et Rand profite de l’occasion pour démontrer que parfois, le meilleur de la vie surgit à l’impromptu.

Question de timing

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. Sans aucun soutien de son père, ou de son frère, et trop fier pour demander de l’aide à des étrangers, il a dû partir de zéro. 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. Ce qui pourrait le mener à la catastrophe, le couper définitivement de sa famille et anéantir un amour encore fragile.

A Timing Anthology

After the Sunset

Two years after riding off into the sunset with ranch owner Rand Holloway, Stefan Joss has made a tentative peace with his new life, teaching at a community college. But the course of true love never does run smooth. Rand wants him home on the ranch; Stef wants an exit strategy in case Rand ever decides to throw him out. Finally, after recognizing how unfair hes being, Stef makes a commitment, and Rand is over the moon.

When Stef gets the chance to prove his devotion, he doesn’t hesitate—despite the risk to his health—and Rand takes the opportunity to show everyone that sometimes life’s best surprises come after the sunset.

 

When the Dust Settles

Glenn Holloway’s predictable life ended the day he confessed his homosexuality to his family. As if that wasn’t enough, he then poured salt in the wound by walking away from the ranch he’d grown up on to open the restaurant he’d always dreamed of. Without support from his father and brother, and too proud to accept assistance from anyone else, he had to start from scratch. Over time things worked out: Glenn successfully built a strong business, created a new home, and forged a life he could be proud of.

Despite his success, his estrangement from the Holloways is still a sore spot he can’t quite heal, and a called-in favor becomes Glenn’s worst nightmare. Caught in a promise, Glenn returns to his roots to deal with Rand Holloway and comes face-to-face with Mac Gentry, a man far too appealing for Glenn’s own good. It could all lead to disaster—disaster for his tenuous reconnection with his family and for the desire he didn’t know he held in his heart.

Sylvan

Sylvan

Sylvan Collection

Return to small-town Sylvan in Jan Irving's bestselling series—reimagined and re-edited with an all-new bonus novella.

The small Western town of Sylvan is a place for new beginnings for those who won’t settle for anything less than true love. These sweet tales of slow-simmering romance and the old-fashioned values of commitment and pulling together when times get tough prove that sometimes the best matches are also the most unexpected.

With the help of a storm, a washed-up Olympic swimmer and a carpenter cracking under the strain of caring for his Alzheimer’s-affected father learn that opposites sometimes really do attract. 

A likable cowboy called Happy Nate is determined to help a mute boy speak again—and to help his father move beyond the repression of the Mennonite community to find the love he deserves.

When a hard-partying cowboy is suddenly saddled with a surprise baby, he’s at his wit’s end. Luckily the local doctor is available to help, and if the two men can find the courage to accept themselves and step into a new life, they might just make a real family. They’ll need to lend each other strength when an unspeakable tragedy strikes—and when it’s time to pick up the pieces.
