World of Love (Deutsch) | Austria

Gay Romance im Schnee

Justin aus LA hat mit seinem Studium zu kämpfen und glaubt auch sonst nicht wirklich an sich, aber er weiß, dass er in zwei Dingen gut ist: Snowboarden und Sex.  

Warum benimmt sich Andi, der heiße Snowboardlehrer in dem Tiroler Skiresort, in dem Justin Urlaub macht, als ob er Justin nicht mal sieht? Justin denkt bald nur noch an eins: den jungen Österreicher ins Bett zu kriegen. Denn nach einer Begegnung in der Sauna, weiß er, Andi mag ihn auch – auf jeden Fall vom Hals abwärts.

Um ans Ziel zu kommen, bucht Justin Andi schließlich als privaten Guide für einen Heliboardingtrip. Aber auf dem Gletscher kommt es zum Drama. Andi verletzt sich, dann geraten die beiden Männer in einen Blizzard. Plötzlich geht es nicht mehr um Spaß im Schnee und darum, einem süßen Typen vom Lande zu seinem Ersten Mal zu verhelfen, sondern ums Überleben. Und um noch mehr. Denn als die beiden Männer die Nacht in einer Hütte am Berg verbringen müssen, wird klar: Das zwischen ihnen ist nicht bloß dieser wilde Mix aus Culture Clash und magnetischer körperlicher Anziehung, sondern etwas viel Größeres – vielleicht sogar Liebe.

World of Love – Schwule Liebesgeschichten aus aller Herren Länder.

Verliebte Anwälte

Verliebte Anwälte

Die erfolgreichen Anwälte Dane Coulter und Cal Monroe sind Rivalen im Gerichtssaal und Freunde hinter den Kulissen. Doch können sie mehr sein?

Cal hat immer heimlich nach Dane geschmachtet. Allerdings verdrängt Dane seine Homosexualität so sehr, dass er nicht mal zugeben kann, dass er möglicherweise schwul ist. Sein Vater, ein fanatischer Homophober, regiert die Familie mit eiserner Hand und drängt Dane zu einer Verlobung – mit einer Frau. Um seine Mutter zu schützen, stimmt Dane zu. Für Cal bringt die Sache jedoch das Fass zum Überlaufen.

Er kann nicht zulassen, dass Dane einen Fehler macht, der sein gesamtes restliches Leben ruiniert und kennt nur einen todsicheren Weg, damit Dane sich eingesteht, wie es in seinem Herzen aussieht. Seinem Freund seine Gefühle zu offenbaren, könnte jedoch nach hinten losgehen und einen Keil zwischen sie treiben. Und selbst dann ist es Dane, der die Entscheidung treffen muss: Das Leben zu leben, das sein Vater von ihm erwartet oder alles, was er hat, für die Chance auf Glück in Cals Armen aufzugeben.

Gli avvocati di successo Dane Coulter e Cal Monroe sono rivali in tribunale e amici nella vita privata. Ma potrebbero essere qualcosa di più?

Cal ha da sempre una cotta per Dane, che però non è dichiarato e fatica persino ad ammettere di essere gay. Suo padre, un omofobo violento che controlla la famiglia con il pugno di ferro, obbliga Dane a fidanzarsi con una donna. Lui acconsente per mantenere la quiete e proteggere la madre, ma per Cal è la goccia che fa traboccare il vaso.

Non può permettere che l’amico faccia un errore che potrebbe rovinargli la vita, e solo lui conosce un modo infallibile per fargli ammettere cosa si cela nel suo cuore. Ma confessare i propri sentimenti gli si potrebbe ritorcere contro, incrinando in modo irreparabile il loro rapporto. Toccherà comunque a Dane scegliere se vivere la vita che vuole suo padre oppure rinunciare a tutto quello che ha per essere felice tra le braccia di Cal.

Cal en a toujours pincé pour Dane, mais celui-ci est si profondément dans le placard qu’il ne peut même pas admettre la possibilité d’être gay.

When unassuming college student Emery Sutton wakes up in the morgue, it takes him a few minutes to remember he has magic (superpowers, damn it!) and free himself from the refrigerated drawer. And the body bag. (God.) It doesn’t take long, though, for him to remember the hot guy with wings he ran into just before a city bus ran into him.

Junior Reaper John must explain to his supervisor how his first solo assignment went so wrong. All he knows is that he happened upon Emery quite by accident, that Emery saw John when he shouldn’t have been able to, and when they accidentally touched, a bus came out of nowhere and plowed Emery under. (John really does feel bad about that.)

Hot angels, annoying demons, hijinks, absurdity, drunk siblings, a dash of silly romance, an inordinate attachment to wings, and a highly disorganized bid for world domination—Don’t Fear the (Not Really Grim) Reaper follows Emery and John down the rabbit hole where they find that moms are scarier than demons from hell, a goat is not a puppy no matter what Emery’s sister says, and awkward romance can happen anywhere.

Three facts about Tuckington Belle:

1. Given the choice between illegally scaling the royal castle’s walls to steal flowers for a client at his family’s dress shop or going on a date with a girl his brother set him up with (“He’s fertile, and he can sew!”), Tuck will scale the wall like a spider after a fly.

2. If, upon knocking himself unconscious when he falls off the wall, Tuck wakes up bruised, blindfolded, and inside the castle, where—based on the unearthly wails heard nightly—the prince no one has seen in ten years is probably a ghost, Tuck would still choose this over a date with a girl.

3. Tuck thinks it’s time to admit he’s gay.     

 

Three facts about Prince Frederick George Deor (Read and approved with great reluctance by Lord “Protocol is Protocol. Stop Being a Pain About It” Todd):

1. He brought a curse upon himself and now bears the skin of a snake. 

2. He can’t take his eyes off the injured thief recovering in the castle.

3. Friendships born from lying and insisting the other person wears a blindfold can blossom into true love—which he needs to break the curse.
